yes, the first earthly branch is due north, and the 12 branches divide the 
circle into 12 even sections, so although i didn't round it off, 8 and 12 
still don't quite coincide with tIng and 'ev.

i had forgotten the disparate size of the 'ev-tIng section.  
china is the middle kingdom in chinese.  it's sometimes seen that way in 
english, too.  

thanks for correcting my mistakes.  alas, the original question remains:  has 
anyone mentioned the earthly branches here before in relation to the klingon
