Quantum Superposition in Democracy

Over a four year cycle, activities of Government and agents (or agencies) of Government are on the same time line. Governance and Policy, in the "Big Picture" or the near term is a matter of perception for any instant during that time. In the "Date References" section above (2012), date milestones and the actual forecast of sunlight duration are mapped. There is only one time line of days (1461 Days long, the "Great Year").

Both Citizens and Civil Servants are Human Resources of the Government in any democracy. As humans, they require special consideration. Their needs are timely, and the strategies and performance metrics of Government must adapt - "next quarter" or "next year" will cause irreparable harm.

Haversine = ((1-cos(radians(DOGY))/2) = 100% * (sin(radians(DOGY)/2)^2)
                                      = 1 * (SIN((DOGY/2)*(PI()/(1461/8)))^2) // DOGY in Degrees
                                      = "Winter"

Reverse   =                           = 100% * (1-(sin(radians(DOGY)/2)^2))
                                      = 1 * (1-(SIN((DOGY/2)*(PI()/(1461/8)))^2)) // DOGY in Degrees 
                                      = "Summer"

Motivation: The Haversine is measuring half the distance between milestones twice.  At the zenith
of the Summer Arc the an average tangent line slope is Zero and at the minimum of the Winter Arc
the slope of an average tangent line in incredibly small, a computed zero (1e-32 or so).

This explains the performance difference.

The formal proof involves a long running Academic dispute between:
1) Zeno's Paradox (1/2 + 1/4 ...), eventually you get where you are going.
2) Pythagorean Theorem sin^2 + cos^2 = 1 (a Unit Circle)
3) The repeated division of resources and angles by two.
