Personally I believe that Terence McKenna, together with this brother Dennis, was _definitely_ on to something.
To all those who see this for the first time: make sure to watch some video material about it. Links provided by OP or search YouTube.
It graphs _novelty_, that's important to remember.
McKenna explains in one of the videos for example the dip in the graph when Tiananmen square happened... the super large demonstration.... but also
how the graph went up again when something happened that was not novel: the killing of people to suppress the demonstration.
The graph fits for example: first atom bomb, tiananmen square, berlin wall, man on the moon, etc.

Anybody else check the timewave program lately? There is a massive dip into novelty, resonant with the birth of Christ, the American Revolution and
WWI no less, that starts around October 2008 and levels off around Decemeber 2008.

Yep, I have seen the coming dip into novelty; but have you seen the rise in habit right before it that we are experiencing now? Interesting to note
that the american elections are in november...guess this is the precursor of the final dip into novelty of 2012...
And anyone who wants to have the older version from me; the one that has been spread for free, can just send me a personal message and I might be able
to give them a copy of my version...thru rapidshare or msn or something.
It's very very intriguing this Timewave Zero approach.
The line falls under the X-axis on 21 dec. 2012! And McKenna discovered this before he knew about the Mayan calendar.
McKenna has a great quote: "Rome falls 9 times an hour!"
Terence McKenna is an awesome thinker, be sure to check him out if you haven't heard about him!
