FRACTAL TIME: The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age
by Gregg Braden
"The human race is at a unique turning point. Will we choose to create the best of all possible worlds?" -Scientific American (September 2005)
In Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age, New York Times best-selling author Gregg Braden merges the modern discoveries of nature's
patterns (fractals) with the ancient view of a cyclic universe. The result is a powerful model of time—fractal time—and a realistic window into
what we can expect for our lives, and for our world, as we approach 2012—the end of the current World Age cycle—and beyond. We have the
opportunity to choose our future. Can we create a new epoch of peace, cooperation, and healing?
"Now is the first time we have the understanding, the need, and the technology to reach into the realm of all possibilities and choose the kind of
future that will arise from the chaos of the present."

"We're living the completion of a 5,125 year-long cycle of time—a world age—that the ancient Maya calculated would end with the winter solstice
on December 21, 2012."
"Our ancestors recorded their experience of the last "end of time," showing beyond a reasonable doubt that the close of one world age is the
beginning of the next, and not the end of the world."
"New discoveries show that we can think of time as an essence that follows the same rhythms and cycles that govern everything from particles to
"We can think of the things that happen in time as places within cycles—points that can be measured, calculated, and predicted."
"If we know where we are in a cycle, then we know what to expect when it repeats."
Gregg proposes that it's these cycles of time that create the events of our everyday world, which carry two powerful implications: (1) The cycles of
time account for everything from the way we age to our patterns of relationships, and even the wars between nations. (2) Each returning cycle carries
a window of opportunity—a choice point—that allows us to select a new outcome for the patterns of the past.
"Along with the repeating cycles that make the conditions possible, each cycle also contains choice points, moments when change seems to come easier
and be most effective. So while the themes of global war, personal betrayal, and peace themselves may be set into the timeline, the outcome for each
of these specific themes is not. As is the case with all of human experience, it's what we do with the condition presented to us that dictates the
next phase of our lives."
Because of our unique time in history—with our current scientific models and our knowledge of the ancient prophecies—we now have the ability to
see what is before us, recognize the possibilities for ourselves and our world, and affect our future in a conscious way.
"We literally have the power to create a beautiful new world... Our ability to understand and apply the 'rules' of Fractal Time holds the key to
our deepest healing, our greatest joy, and our survival as a species."
Looks interesting. Just putting it out there. Haven't read it myself, but the idea of historic cycles giving rise to a new age, makes sense.
What we've been doing and the way we've been functioning, is no longer workable. One world is coming to replace the old, outmoded worldview.
I believe we may be approaching a new way of seeing and experiencing reality, wherein the concept of "the end of time" will make increasingly more
When we enter into an eternal realm of co-creation with God, then time no longer has any meaning, and neither does death itself.
Everything is what it is, and that's the way it always was and will be. The spirit of the living God is the alpha and the omaga, the first, and the
Reconciled, we are one with the spirit.
In my view, it's an exciting time to be a Christian, unless you are a fundamentalist literalist Christian - for them, there will be difficulty, but
likewise will there be difficulty for those who do not recognize the value of the Christian message, and who, spiritually, may not be able to
reconcile their innermost being with the new spiritual reality, which will involve timeless oneness, something that an unreconciled sinner in
separation from the source, will find unnerving, particularly at the moment that there is no longer a choice, having been overcome by the spirit of
God. For them, it will be like seeing everyone else sharing in an immense joy, and great merriment and laughter, having been included in a type of
comic joke, which they will not get, and that will only further harden their hearts, as their sense of humour and capacity to laugh at themselves and,
in particular at the devil within, bleeds away... very frightening it will be for many. "And there will be weaping and wailing and gnashing of
Imagine the terror of the coming of the kingdom of heaven, if you are left on the outside looking in as someone who does not and cannot "get it",
and for whom, even by the time you may begin to understand, realize that you missed it - that a cosmic door had opened, and many who entered are
partying, and that you missed the party.
This is what I see, and I liken myself a type of modern day prophet.
Therefore, be prepared. Make sure that your lamp is filled with oil (spirit within) and that you are ready for the coming of the spirit of the living
God, which will not come from any particular direction, but from everywhere and all at once.
If you have not done so, it would be a good time to re-read the New Testament with an eye on the notion that we may indeed be in the very end times,
