The principal device of the Timewave Zero theory is a fractal function (constructed using numerical values derived from the King Wen Sequence of I Ching hexagrams) which maps time onto 'novelty'. This theory was developed by Terence McKenna (1946-2000) from the early 1970s to the late 1990s, and was first described by him in the book The Invisible Landscape (1974), written with his brother Dennis. This theory follows from
the "revealed" axiom that all phenomena are at root constellated by a wave form which is the hierarchical summation of its constituent parts, morphogenetic patterns related to those in DNA. ... We argue that the theory of the hyperspatial nature of superconductive bonds, and the experiment we devised to test that theory, yielded ... a modular wave-hierarchy theory of the nature of time that we have been able to construe, using a particular mathematical treatment of the I Ching, into a general theory of systems, which illuminates the nature of time and organism and provides an idea model which explains the interconnection of physical and psychological phenomena from the submolecular to the macrocosmic level.

My theory on that feeling.
Everyone used to tell me when I was a little kid that time seemed to move faster as you get older.
As I grew older, I experienced that feeling myself. Every year seemed faster than the last.
And it continues to this day.
I think, to a five year old, six months is ten percent of their entire lifetime. So six months seems like a very long time indeed.
To a fifty year old, that’s only one percent of a lifetime, so not very long at all.
Is the subconscious simply putting things into perspective for us in relation to how we perceive time?
