I always thought the earlier date was the right one (it was the standard view for a long time). The study of the macro/eonic effect shows a good reason for the early date: the study of the Axial Age in terms of the eonic model shows the take off of two new religions in parallel just after the ‘divide’ period of the transitional interval! What does all that mean?

    Interesting. I guess the original chronology given for the Upanishads is also confirmed by these findings (starting in 8th century BC).

    The date for the Upanishads also fits: it shows the early movements that emerged to create the new milieu of the Axial period
