Timewave zero is a theory that purports 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, 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 supposedly increasing or decreasing. According to the timewave graph, great periods of novelty occurred about 4 billion years ago when Earth was formed, 65 million years ago when dinosaurs were extinct and mammals expanded, about 10,000 years ago after the end of the ice age, around late 18th century when social and scientific revolutions progressed, during the sixties, around the time of 9/11, and with coming novelty periods in November 2008, October 2010, with the novelty progressing towards the infinity on 21st December 2012  — although, depending on what input is given to the software, any arbitrary set of results can be obtained, much like numerology.
One Vedic astrology theory holds that [the] Yugas
came in to existence in the following manner :
our Sun has its 'dark companion' (description of which suits the description of a black hole). Although smaller thatn the Sun, this 'dark companion' is more powerful and completely balck. Nothing comes out of it, but everything gets lost in it. Dark companion revolves around around the Sun in ellipse orbit. When the Dark Star comes between Sun and Vishnunabhi, it inhibits its beneficial influence. At that time, the period on Earth is that of the Kali Yuga. When Sun distance itself from the Dark Star, Vishnunabhi is completely open and we have Sat Yuga on Earth...

What I believe 2012 might be.
That's my crazy totally unscientific theory about what the 2012 might be:
Make people believe something is going to happen so a huge energy buildup will happen and some dudes will use this excess energy for a magic ceremony to manifest something.

I must say, when I read from the OP that there would be big and long party after some "event", it reminded me of that dumb scene from the Matrix. You know which one I'm thinking of - the big rave where everyone is pissed drunk and drugged and the war drums are beating - incidentally the night before the battle.
Anyway, what bugs me lately is that damn December 21, 2012, 11:11 thing. Everyone is so dead set on it as if someone/thing is gonna toggle the switch and all of a sudden up is down, red is green, and green is blue........So saying that on December 21, 2012 at 11:11 something is going to happen of such a magnitude and quality to radically change everything (we hold dear or not) and after that moment things will be totally different, is to say the least improbable.

The surrounding light and feeling of complete contentedness sounds very very simular to the effects of too much '___', which is released while dreaming. Dont know if many people have it, but when your sleeping, you ever woke up to a feeling of a sort of static electric shock through your body? a really intense "fuzz" for a split second? Thats the effect of a '___' "overload".

Instead of seeing 11:11 on the clock, I'm always looking at clocks at 4:44. I often wake at 4:44 am and it began BEFORE I moved to an apt who's physical address is 4444.
I don't know yet what it all means, but I have faith that one day I will understand.

Sorry... but anything Richard Hoagland has to say I doubt highly first of all. I've listened to him rant and rave on Coast to Coast for 10 years and he has been wrong everytime.

I guess all I can say is I hope your right and something wonderful happens... but I think its just going to be another day brother. But don't worry, I'm sure some other astronomical convergence will happen for everyone to throw their hope on.

Time zone? Anyone?

Before any 'party,' there's going to be a lot of 'dark before the dawn' type stuff, regardless. Does anybody know where I'm coming from? Dark first, then Dawn, just like in creation or birth itself.
