I think I understand what you're proposing - that when our technological progress reaches infinity, our current concept of time will be rendered
useless & will be literally 'outdated,' and chaos will be accepted as normal. I agree, though this is one of many ways to take what the timewave
represents and how it relates to technology.
...if every experience and every technological advancement has been exhausted so as to bring novelty to zero, nothing new remains...we have
reached TimeWave Zero. ~TryThinking
As the timewave advances into the future, it does track novelty (newness), however it's not approaching 'zero' meaning nothing
or the end of
newness. In the case of the program, zero stands for infinity
. As the numbers dip further and further towards what seems to be nothing, our
'Now' is hurtling towards an incomprehensible state of newness, whereby our advancement as a species will reach a point where our options of moving
forward as humanity (or whatever we choose to be) become endless. Whether this be through a technological singularity, a mass spiritual awakening,
etc, I don't know.
But what's clear to me is that we approach a time where nothing can be predicted (or even imagined) beyond it. The perceived chaos of day to day
living will make it too difficult to predict what will happen in one hour, let alone months, days, or weeks.
One important point I would like to make is that this timewave tracks our collective attention, that is, what we notice happening and how we find out
about it...and how quickly. Now by using technology (news sites, social networking, media sharing, ATS, twitter, etc) we can know of events within
minutes of them occurring. As more people become connected, as technology becomes quicker, and as this web becomes tighter, we'll begin to think and
react to news in sync...as one cohesive mind. Perhaps zero marks the point in our history where we become a true collective rather than a divided
crowd. Considering this possibility then, each shift in the timewave marks points where we as a planet become more in tune with the passage of time,
and become more attentive of events as they occur.
Lastly, although it could track our conscious attention of news events, I think another equally likely scenario is that it tracks our growing
inability to adapt and actually deal with the acceleration of technology, with the added pressures of constantly learning new things (like how to
actually make use of that technology) - then we have to worry about economy, health, terrorism, climate change...on and on. As a society we seem to be
approaching OVERLOAD - the point where we just won't be able to take it anymore.
Some people will take this opportunity to 'flip out' and remove themselves and/or others from the collective (which is happening more and more).
Some may refuse to play the games anymore called 'society' and 'culture,' and they may revert (or re-evolve) back to simpler living. And some may
look within themselves, see that what's wrong with society has also been what's wrong with them, and opt to change, thus helping create an entirely
new society...and entirely new future.
All of the above might be partially right or completely wrong, but it feels right to me. I see it daily, and I feel it approaching...this change...the
One final note - I know I've gone on and one here, but I think this is worth pointing out. If we approach a new beginning, I imagine the moment to be
like the 'birth' of something. Having taken childbirth classes recently, we talked about contractions, what they were, how long they lasted, and
what to do when they became closer together and stronger. I immediately correlated labor contractions with what the timewave tracks - the shifts in
the graph are the contractions, and the resonance groups are the stages of labor. If this is the case, October 7, 2008 marked the shift to another
stage of labor...closer to this new thing emerging. Imagine all the pain and emotions of birth felt on a global scale. Imagine how life will be
afterwards. This is why what lies beyond that point is unknowable - parents-to-be can't truly imagine how birth will change things, and the kids born
are unable to remember the experience.
