Ok, so I have watched this thread since the beginning, replied a few times, made some observations and am now full circle back to where I started.
Here are some things I have noticed on my own about the timewave...
1) We understand that things in our solar system occur in cycles... it should be a given by now.
2) We understand that our solar system's movement is not the only thing that occurs in cycles over time.
3) Some examples: the orbits of planets, the wobble of the earth, the solar cycles, comets, planetary alignments, seasons, la nina and el nino, etc,
etc, etc. There are so many repeating patterns and cycles that one could spend an entire lifetime tracking them down, so let's move past this.
4) We understand that McKenna based his work from the I-Ching. Let's dig a little deeper into this in a moment...
5) We know that the timewave shows definitive repeating, fractal-like patterns over a period of time that we assume is aligned properly to current
events but are not 100% sure of. These patterns get smaller and smaller as time progresses.
So here are some things that everyone (I think) should be considering. The I-Ching was basically made for an emperor to forecast his personal fortunes
and for crop-telling so that he could provide sustenance for his people, a personal almanac if you will. In today's times, we call this astrology and
meteorology. We don't know exactly who made the I-Ching or how it was derived, but it is believed to be based on natural events and their timing,
similar to a farmer's almanac. There is no doubt that nature, our very existence all around us, is in constant change. The I-Ching, in all
likeliness, was based off of astronomical and other observations, that seem to repeat in regular cycles, such as the seasons. I have not personally
seen any evidence contrary to what I'm saying, in fact, I've seen evidence to support it.
Now, no matter how Terrance McKenna derived his formulas, if what I stated above is correct, it would mean that EVERY formula for timewave theory is
based off of astronomical and naturally occurring events that repeat over time, NOT HUMAN EVENTS. The July event that everyone was focused on recently
happened to also be at the time of an eclipse, which is a naturally occurring and repeating event that can be calculated and planned for. The timewave
reflected this change and everyone brushed it off as a "novel" event because of how many people viewed it. Following the timewave graph, this has
happened on several instances and while I don't have the data in front of me, it also lines up perfectly with other astronomical activities such as
planetary alignments. August 11th was the meteor shower, as expected, and showed up on the timewave as well, and shows the "novel" occurrence over a
period of a couple of days... the same length as the meteor shower. It started on the 11th, peaked on the 12th and 13th. The I-Ching and the timewave,
therefore, would be nothing more than abstractions of data, or a different view of the same core data... the movement or changes in nature
I really do not believe that the fractal nature of the events on the timewave represent repeating types of human events as previous times in history,
but are more reflective of the "forces" being exerted upon us or the earth by the sun and other cosmic forces that can alter our behaviors and
actions. These forces effect us in ways we still don't fully know or understand, but it's the reason good horoscopes are accurate and the reason we
turn on the weather forecast. A change in the sun would effect our weather, would it not? Weather would effect your behavior and your day, would it
not? It is believed that astronomical alignments effect weather, mood, behavior, luck, etc. Would it not make sense that if you understand these
changes, you could model your life around them and have much success? Even little things, like not having to bring an umbrella with you, which means
you have an extra hand to carry more food. And for those hard-core conspiracy folks who don't believe in astrology, JP Morgan, one of the wealthiest
and most hated of TPTB had a personal astrologist, and I believe said "Millionaires don't use astrology. Billionaires DO." Considering his
astrologist told him not to get on the Titanic when he was going to, and all of his friends who did died, he timed most of his business deals to
coincide with astrology and was a firm believer in it. To me, I would suspect that the more we know about these events, the more insight we will all
have into the insidious plans these people have. Businesses, diplomats, politicians... all use astrology today. There is definitely something about
the way the energies of the sun, solar system and beyond effect all humans and it would seem that only "privileged" people have the depth of
understanding we all would need to benefit from this knowledge.
For now, I'd just like to see the timewave theory get grounded again because it seems like it has gone way off track with no consideration for the
scientific minded, which is why it doesn't get the attention it deserves. Without fully understanding the I-Ching and how IT was derived to arrive at
it's current function (or previous), no amount of data abstracted from it and no amount of pattern-matching is going to make any sense. I've waited
to see what would come of several dips and the only thing I've seen that coincides every time is astrological events. I've read all 101 pages of
this thread, some pages multiple times. I've studied the graphs. I've replied and engaged Evasius. I still keep coming back to this same spot. So if
someone else knows something I don't, please do enlighten me.
For the record, I mean no disrespect to anyone else's work here, so please no flaming for being open-minded and a critical thinker.
