If the wave model is a valid general theory of time, it should be possible to show why certain periods or places have been particularly rich in events that accelerate the creative advance into novelty. It should also show where and when in the future such events might be expected to recur. To carry out this operation, a personal computer has proven indispensable. A group of programs implementing these ideas has been written by Peter Meyer. The program is called Timewave Zero. The software takes these theories and discoveries concerning the I Ching and creates time maps based upon them. The time maps, or novelty maps, show the ebb and flow of connectedness, or novelty, in any span of time from a few days to tens of millennia. The theory is not deterministic; it does not say what will happen in the future, it only predicts the level of novelty that whatever happens will have to fulfill. As such, it operates as a map, or simplified picture, of the future (and past) behavior of whatever system is being studied. The end date is the point of maximized novelty in the system, and is the only point in the entire wave that has a quantified value of zero.
The human condition is unbelievably fragile in nature. Like fish in an aquarium, slight changes in the environment can have disastrous consequences for our kind. I have found however that the adversely affected majority is almost always survived by an extraordinarily resilient minority. Mankind is never easily defeated, no matter the circumstances.
I come from one such reality where Man was tested and somehow avoided complete annihilation. We survivors embarked on a mission to correct the mistakes that led to the disaster, only to become aware of many realities existing parallel to ours. We found many Earths where things were playing out quite differently, and many were doing so comfortably. We set about combining desirable portions of their realities with ours in order to eventually cancel out our disastrous past. We have so far been unsuccessful in that mission.
My name is Evasio Gregori, though many call me Evasius, and I am a Timewave Technician...

I've been using the 1993 DOS program developed by McKenna. The trouble is, I can't take screenshots of the program while I'm using it. When I find a way I'll post the detailed graphs here.
Anyway, we're currently riding a major novelty point. It reaches a pinnacle and then dips dramatically on October 7, 2008. The thing is, as you've pointed out, there are other versions of this software, however I've noticed discrepancies in what is represented from one program to the other.
Here is basically what I'm looking at:
(The point we're at now is the last tall peak just below the number 11).
We're within a 2-week period right now that is equalling in magnitude Sept. 11, 2001 and the beginning of the Iraq war. That said, I've also noticed the program doesn't necessarily map out bad events. If something really great were to happen that would affect the collective consciousness, then that too would be present in the graph.
Who know's, something great could happen in October and divert our attention from the current horrible state of affairs.
