Spiraling through time and space



what matters



  1. Matter a network of tiny quarks, living and dead matter
  2. Connection to the flow, embeded in motion
  3. Forces influencing mater


1. As Astrocyte wrote we are all made up from tiny particles, no just us humans, but everything is a more or less loose cluster of particles.
2. The planet is in motion, the galaxy is spiraling and traveling through the universe, so are our tiniest particles spinning through their layer of matter
3. Gravitation comes to mind, also the e- & p+ & n-/+ attraction of our atoms, forces hold us in our place, from the cell to the galaxy

just in time



  1. TimeWaveZero
  2. Milky way a Spiral
  3. time & matter


1. Terence McKenna was on to something, Time Wave Zero is software to show the circular progress of historical events and an attempt to make it scientifically forseeable. Problem is he assumes circles instead of spirals
2. The Milky Way is spinning the planet is spinning, both together create time, because time is related to speed and size of the mass.
3. Time dilation is the best prove that manipulation of time is possible and for the relation of time to the spin-speed of the observed object.

the will to know



  1. from experience to fact
  2. the danger of bias
  3. from bias to ideology


1. the most important item in our set of experiences is the gathering of knowledge, we learn through experiments, were we try to achieve repeatable outcomes, i.E. look for the recipe to make things happen.
2. especially in the research that concerns the mind, bias is your worst enemy. It is vital to be always aware how fast we assume something as fact, while it really only fits our own tiny perspective and is not applyable for the bigger crowd, or the "average experiences of the masses".
3. when bias becomes ideology you build a wall that keeps you from gathering new information, because it is "forbidden" to think that way, or "crazy" to discuss it.

school of spirits


One of the biggeat threats we face in this period of the awakening is those feeling "enlightened", you know the type, those which "just know" despite any valid arguments and completely disregarding everybody elses eperiences, because it doesn't fit the narrative they swallowed. That goes not only for the self taught NewAgers, but also for the religious people, which just follow their culturally inherited doctrination. These are two theories and hardly a fact. True freedom can only be achieved, when you trust your own experience, while being aware yours is only one tiny part of the collective perception of reality and just as all mater is connected, so is all information, the material world is disfunctional without the imagination and vice versa. Every first step towards a true "enlightment" has to be the acceptance of being embeded in both, the time bound material world and the timeless aetherical sphere of pure information. You know you are on to something when synchronicity leads your steps from one "lesson" to the other.
It is a dangerous path though and the quote


99% of people are fools and the 1% is in constant danger of contamination

describes it pretty perfectly.

The fool is a two-sided metaphor for an approach to experience reality. He is embeded in the flow, doesn't make plans and just has trust in life, love and the universe, that he is on his way, no matter what happens it will happen anyways. But he is also in constant danger of self extinction, if he fails to keep his sense of responsibility for his own actions, or his awareness for reality, or gives up his connection to the material world entirely.

Muad'Dib!


The history of our cultural evolution is leading us to an age of selfawareness and self-determination, the bigger connected mass can only function if we finally start to be honest to ourselfes and accept our imperfection, without blaming them on everything and everyone else. Reflection is the first and most important step, but the goal can't be a surpression of the ego, or overcoming of the material world, it has to be a constructive integration of the imagination, or psychic experience into the material world.

"I make my weakness my strength"


The real challenge is to maintain the discipline to avoid falling for ideologies, to dare to find a unique path through our spiritual growth, while keeping an constant eye on our surroundings and what the very basic and core information of these experiences is.
I am one tiny cell, but I am also ruler of a whole universe.

Feel welcome to tell me what you would consider to be imbalanced. I use ATS mostly for kind of "collective error detection".

a reply to: khnum

It reminds me of some earlier thinking about the way of the Bushido and i believe it is almost like that, people choose their colour, the thing they want to spend their life with, or die trying to achieve it. The pushing of your life force towards one aspect of the greater goal. Like the question, do you want to make people laugh, or dance, or healthy again, or teach them maths, or whatever, one path alone leads nowhere.

a reply to: ancientthunder

Loki is a beautiful example, for everybody struggling with overcoming the concept of "good vs. evil", the whole North and Greek mythology is a more precise study of human nature, than some of our modern psychological concepts are. There is no "normal", no "pure good/evil" and most importantly they describe beautifully how emotions influence our perception and therefor automatically our decissions. And no one is above that.

Excellent post, I enjoyed it. I was also intrigued with the idea of time having a spiral structure. I try to get into new or alternative cosmologies, like Sir Roger Penrose's 'Cycles of Time: An Extraordinary New View of the Universe'. That book is pretty much 80% jargon though, so I found it rather cumbersome.

I know McKenna had a lot of varying thoughts on time and his novelty theory. Almost too many, he always seemed to invent new schemes as to how he envisioned the singularity and ultimate complexity of the TimeWave Zero. It was endlessly entertaining to listen to his ideas. Unfortunately, in many ways, he sort of put too much emphasis on the physical date and astronomical alignment of December 21st 2012, thus raising all kinds of triumphant expectations on the part of his "followers", for lack of a better word. His brother did have a different take on the TimeWave and there are still many merits to the theory. I think it's possible that the technological singularity has in fact already occurred, but not in the civilian sector! LOL

This is a portion from 'True Hallucinations' where he talks a bit about novelty theory:


Because we suggest a model of time whose mathematics
dictate a built-in spiral structure, events keep gathering themselves into tighter and tighter
spirals that lead inevitably to a final time. Like the center of a black hole, the final time is
a necessary singularity, a domain or an event in which the ordinary laws of physics do
not function. Imagining what happens in the presence of a singularity is, in principle,
impossible and so naturally science has shied away from such an idea. The ultimate
singularity is the Big Bang, which physicists believe was responsible for the birth of the
universe. We are asked by science to believe that the entire universe sprang from
nothingness, at a single point and for



no discernible reason. This notion is the limit case for credulity. In other words, if you
can believe this, you can believe anything. It is a notion that is, in fact, utterly absurd, yet
terribly important to all the rational assumptions that science wishes to preserve. Those
so-called rational assumptions flow from this initial impossible situation.

Western religion has its own singularity in the form of the apocalypse, an event placed
not at the beginning of the universe but at its end. This seems a more logical position than
that of science. If singularities exist at all it seems easier to suppose that they might arise
out of an ancient and highly complexified cosmos, such as our own, than out of a
featureless and dimensionless mega-void.


Another worthy contender that ties in time, gravity, spirals and UFOs is from another great David Sereda and his "Galaxy Clock" theory.

To set a date for "when everything will be entirely different" is a classic human kneejerk reaction when you want to prove something out of the folders from metaphysics. It won't work, because the processes we are facing are gradual progress, to the point where the scale tips and the new weighs more than the old. So to some degree, maybe he was right, maybe some catalyst was triggering a chain of different reactions, not consistent in the human mind before. Like the overcoming of the apocalypse, the beauty is: everything changes, nothing gets lost forever just absorbed and adapted in the next level of things.

And because i saw it in the video and it fits:






I believe barriers are just as new scientific truths, what held my parents back is the door knob for my adventure.
And the key will be to crack the question what consciousness really is, a paradigm shift that will cause mass-suicides=> natural selection, before we enter the next level.

Is this a reference to Max Planck's quote when he says "A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it." So entire generations necessarily have to die for them to see the light, so to speak?

Is a high-tech afterlife being prepared for all of us?

Until you lose 'your life' you will not know eternal life.

Well, No/Yes, what i ment was more the acceptance of the answer to the question what consciousness is, will be unbearable for many people grown up in a very different perception of life than what it really is.
All these theories we are having now are completely over the heads of many people which never entertained themselfes with the laws of physics, the breakthroughs in all the natural sciences, which make us more and more aware of a coexistence & dependence of facts through all of them, chemistry doesn't work without maths and physics, biology doesn't work without chemistry and the building of indexes (the very foundation of science, data gathering), psychology doesn't work, without biology and philology, etc.
As Sereda in his Galaxy Clock Theory, he attempts to overcome the barrier of the speed of light, by changing the perception of the observer, or in this case the frequency of the observed object.
Changing perceptions will be a huge theme for our scientific and personal progress and there are many people, which are afraid of everything outside their familiar paths.
If someone would tell them now, there is no room for god, unless you change the definition to make it the miracle of love and life itself, because everything else is predictable, a list of yet to be discovered indexes and a shift of frequency for the tiniest involved particles. The paradigm shift will be to accept we are embeded in a bigger story, yet still have to take responsibility for our actions, because we can't change the decission points, but we can make the ride to get there more or less comfortable for all of us.

The individual is something else than what we think it is, it is just a tiny bubble out of a bigger bubble, which is the human soul, in a bigger bubble, which is the Earths soul, a bubble in the bigger universal soul. It is no self existing entity, without others my soul doesn't exist, my individuality is information defined in delimitation to other individuals informations. Not what we share makes us unique but our differences.
If you look at it that way a high-tech afterlife is unecessary, because you go home into the next bigger conscience bubble and get reasembled for rebirth, which means your core information is immortal already.

I do know everything though, my Dodo told me so.


Great thread! It's easy to get lost in all the information overload many experience daily. Falling back to ones biases is an easy way of protecting yourself. It happens to everyone really including the Dali Lama. The difference of course is being able to recognize your bias so when you are ready, you can continue.

Thanks for the read!

Well from one Dodo-talker to the other:
Who says not almost all I wrote is just my personal bias? And it kind of is, because it derivates from the assumption my spiral theory is the truth, while the only true proven facts it holds are: time, matter and information exist.
That's what i fall back to when trying to protect myself.

Some people only have words; theories; beliefs; etc.

Here is one way to separate the "talkers" from the "doers":

Pick something you desire and manifest it with ease wait for it to unfold through the magic of synchronicity. Some people come up with elaborate philosophies, yet, they do not recognize the difference between something as simple as freewill vs freedom....



The real challenge is to maintain the discipline to avoid falling for ideologies, to dare to find a unique path through our spiritual growth, while keeping an constant eye on our surroundings and what the very basic and core information of these experiences is.


I personally use external sources to point people a certain way. I do so because I do not like to share my personal experiences and methods (craft). So the water down version is all they get. Which is enough for those who are actually aware.

Some people experience things since a childhood that many adult new agers pollute with their theories. They have no empirical experiences or evidence.



The real challenge is to maintain the discipline to avoid falling for ideologies,


Did everything in your post come from within...? Or are you piecing together things based on external sources...?

Bruce Lee 's approach to life and martial arts reflects what I'm trying to say here.

a reply to: Involutionist

Well i sort of sacrificed my freedom to find the truth behind my personal experiences. But you bring up an interesting point, what if the surroundings are so tainted they water the lesson? I am willing to die for two things actually, love and the truth. That's my goal, my compass and what makes me the bushido i am. With my last breathe i'd hope and wish for true love and true contents in knowledge.
In a nutshell, i was having a very weird personal experience, out of an emotional emergency that led me on this path. It was my free choice to participate but i have no control over ther outcome, as in: you let the bird fly and see where it lands, or in your metaphor you pour the water, but you can't control who collects it.
What is synchronicity and how does it work is probably the main reason, why so many start yelling it has to be manipulated, simulated, or controlled by some external force. I am not so sure, because it all fits together so perfectly, someone would have to have planed my life before it started and let's face it: that's impossible.
I could be one of the nutters we have here on ATS and write stuff like, i am the new messiah and i did at some point, mainly because it was part of my inner development, or growth, but could also have been a reduction. I ride the flow and see where it takes me, which is currently from hitting one wall to the next full stop, with little marvels in between, like I am still collecting pieces of my personal narrative.
My outlook on the universe hasn't changed, it won in precission, i'd like to assume. Thanks to external influences, because besides Douglas Adams, Terence McKenna has contributed a big piece, I also like the vibrating crystal idea of David Sereda and how it can be all brought together to create an entirely new outlook on humanity and it's role in the uiverse, or the general fabric of life.

One of my biggest advantages is maybe i was so alienated all my life, there was not much cultural influence i had to overcome.

I don't know how this is a guide to awaekning, rather rhetorical information. Or, in what sense do you mean awakening?

I'm more curious; what is your true experince of an "awakening", as it's your title and your thread. I'd like to hear your awakening as you called it.

Or is it just information you mentally digest and spew back out, that is not an experience, although second hand information.

What's your experince? What's your versiom of your awakening?

The fool represents One, on a journey, seeking answers, yet the Fool has all the answers/keys in his little bag. Hence fool.
All answers lie inside, not in nature, though nature always seems to reflect, and turn our attention back to self.

Your version was alright though.

Without rhetorical regurgitation, what is your awakening experience Peeple? And what has that lead you to on your journey? Has your journey been fulfilling?

Nice read, and well laid out

Awakening is just a reference to the age of aquarius, and the main idea was to bring together what i found to be true, when you start dealing with different facets of the mind. You know to avoid the demon/angels/ghosts trap one would normally fall in.
And sorry to correct you but the fool is Zero. The unwritten page, the state of mind in which everything is possible.
But i am glad you enjoyed it since it was co-inspired by your thread.

To my story, well the fresh-after shock crap got recorded on ATS and I am a bit ashamed of some parts of it now. But you can get an overlook here, or better here, just keep in mind i was at a very dark place and the situation was all in all just horrible. I never did feel like i am really that interesting to the masses, but had to follow my inner-narrative. And the journey isn't over yet, so maybe you have something of value to add.

Well one mans extraterrestrial is another mans inner dimensional.
however sometimes splitting hairs is splitting hairs. Reality is in fact what we make of it, or else I wouldn't have been able to will myself my reality in exactly the way I want it.....regardless of the blood, sweat and tears involved. It was more than just me that made it so, it was the cosmos. I willed it, and the cosmos went out of its way to make it so. I'm grateful for it and realize I can lose it just as quickly.......BUT if I realized that a little too much, thane rhats I deserve that too.

Appreciate the response my friend.

The fool is zero, because the answer is 0, of this reality, meaning whOle, entire, collective, interconnected ... hence the answer is inside (Inter-connected).

This entire new age Aquarius thing is not an awaekning of any sort. Humans have always been waking up, if indeed you speak of expanded knowledge or spiritual insight of self.

If One is in tune with themselves; thoughts, feelings, senses, actions.. they will always be lead back to self.
The human experience I liken to a tree/plant. We start as seeds, we grow, we experience, we learn. But will always be reflected inward to self, the one having the experience inside a body via 5 sreceptive senses that send signals to its brain.

Eventually One in such a state of being, is lead to understanding the enormous creation is not separate from their own experience, they are a collective, as the tree/plant network is connected, yet individually separated.

You didn't really answer any of my questions though. Just skimmed me off to threads that were skim offs of other threads.

What is the experience you had?

You said; Awakening is just a reference to the age of aquarius, and the main idea was to bring together what i found to be true, when you start dealing with different facets of the mind. ..

I asked what your awaekning was, you gave me "age of Aquarius, and facets of mind". What does this mean and how is Aquarius which I belive is a cosmic region we pass through in our celestial journey with Sun, have to do with your mind's facet?

Thanks again

Oh no, don't open her up...God forbid.


I like Pandora...she bumps the status quo as far as I'm concerned. Be not afraid of you're told to fear. Embrace Pandora, she loves you because you care. Test it all to the limit...open that bitch wide open. Excuse the language but that in itself has a meaning.
