This is an edifying answer to the question. I can wrap my head around this. It's not "gnostic" coded messages, it's just the way complex data was communicated. I think the numbered years and the calendar as we know it was the invention of romans with the help of the greek-egyptians, so it makes sense to me that this would have been one method of marking time outside the influence of roman systems.

As I’m investigating Neolithic cultures, I’m starting to see what I’ve found in Genesis 5 crop up more. I think this way of recording time was commonplace before 3,000 BC.
