And?
If it wasn't for the media's over exposure of this story, it wouldn't even be considered serious.
Children are murdered more than we like to believe. I fail to see why this one was any more tragic than the rest. Simply because the media decided to cover this one does not make it any worse.
And simply because the media covered it doesn't mean it had world wide or even country wide implications. Based on the events you are choosing to point out to justify this, it would seem to indicate that you believe this murder did have some sort of implication.

why do people here take theories and cling to them wholeheartedly as if they "know" the facts that so far no one can actually prove?

Now, I finally have mathematical proof that "something" will happen about/around that time.
If my prediction based on the mathematics of this is wrong -- I'll have egg all over my damn face and take it gladly.
I believe the math is correct --
any chance you could take one of the graph and post it so we could get a look at it without the reflection from the light on the screen?

You make several assertions that your conclusions are based on math but after reading the Wiki article it clearly states that the theory is based on numerology. Big difference.
Novelty theory attempts to calculate the ebb and flow of novelty in the universe as an inherent quality of time. It is an idea conceived of and discussed at length by Terence McKenna from the early 1970s until his death in the year 2000. Novelty theory involves ontology, morphogenesis, and eschatology. Novelty, in this context, can be thought of as newness, density of complexification, and dynamic change as opposed to static habituation. According to McKenna, when "novelty" is graphed over time, a fractal waveform known as timewave zero or simply the timewave results. The graph shows at what times, but never at what locations, novelty is increasing or decreasing.
The timewave itself is a combination of numerology and mathematics. It is formed out of McKenna's interpretation and analysis of numerical patterns in the King Wen sequence of the I Ching (the ancient Chinese Book of Changes). This concept first took root in his entheogenic experiences shared by him and his brother Dennis McKenna as documented in the book True Hallucinations. The theory is clearly[1] based in numerology and takes shape out of McKenna's belief that the sequence is artificially arranged as such purposefully. Mathematically, the sequence is graphed according to a set of mathematical ratios, and displays a fractal nature as well as resonances[2] although it was not captured in a true formula until criticism from mathematician Matthew Watkins (see below). McKenna interpreted the fractal nature and resonances of the wave, as well as his theory of the I Ching's artificial arrangement, to show that the events of any given time are recursively related to the events of other times.
The thing that hath been, it [is that] which shall be; and that which is done [is] that which shall be done: and [there is] no new [thing] under the sun.
Is there [any] thing whereof it may be said, See, this [is] new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
[There is] no remembrance of former [things]; neither shall there be [any] remembrance of [things] that are to come with [those] that shall come after.
As the theory was never published in a peer-reviewed journal and McKenna's sources and reasoning were primarily what would be considered numerological rather than mathematical by professional mathematicians and scientists...

This is something in this theory that I dont understand.
Why is Zero poit set on 2012? Why not in year 3600 for example?
What happen if we move this zero point horizon event?
I still believe that is a math tricky game, and you can allways build a method/theory that can fit all possible future events, but read on past.

So let's look at 9/11 (for example). Unquestionably a HUGE event (the big, visible event). But timewave would look for the event(s) that set that catastrophe in motion. Because as important as 9/11 is in the universal timeline what was really important and what changed the course of history was the event(s), decision(s) that set those events into motion.
