Dorotheus / Ptolemy Variations:

The difference between the Ptolemaic and Dorothean circumambulations has to do with whether the confines (boundaries) were the general period indicators or the specific period indicators.  According to the mainstream Hellenistic sources such as Dorotheus, the confines defined the general periods and the rays or bodily encounters were the specific time lords that assisted.  Ptolemy used the reverse where the rays or bodily encounters defined the general period.

In the Time Lords window, this means that the general periods are shown in the main window and the specific lords are found by double clicking any period in the list.
