Perhaps the subdivisons (of these 2 Daoist lists), repraesenting reversely read sequences in the Codex Vindobonensis, can
be reconciled by assuming a [Jaina-style] Kala-cakra of ascending & descending stages. And (in view of the similarity
between the 28 of one list and now being the 28th maha-yuga of the current Manu-antara) an appropriate way to reconcile the
2 Daoist lists (each as a whole) with each other would be to correlate the idea (in the literature of the Theosophical Society --
taken from some upa-puran.a ?) of pairs of Manu-antara-s as the ascending & descending stages.

The earlier Hellenic system, represented by Selendromia, would seem to have repraesented the
Zarathustrian et al. system of praescription for the days, whereas the newer sequential
arrangement in Works and Days, lines 765-828, would seem to repraesent the sequence of the
naks.atra-s. Thus:--

In the foregoing, the Australian may be unrelated to the Choctaw; for the Choctaw migration of the living
was towards the southwest, whereas "the happy hunting grounds" [for those prae-destined to salvation]
were "located in the southwestern horizon, and spirits ... sped their last journey ... in the direction of the
southwest horizon." (Swanton, p. 219) This Australian sequence (containing, #17, Frog) is apparently
aequivalent to a Choctaw "travel after death to the west" [for those prae-destined to damnation], at the
end of which route "The wicked ... fall ... to ... where the trees are all dead, and the waters are all full of
toads ...". (Swanton, p. 218)
