Another article for you to ponder, completely unrelated to the work of the McKenna brothers, published by the Insitutue for Advanced Interdisciplinary
Research.
Fractal Time - Susie Vrobel. Take note of how many pages the essay is;
if you have been paying any attention whatsoever you will notice the coincidence. Also, on the subject of the length of the paper, you will have shown
your hand if you return to this thread after only a few minutes to continue to prop up your straw man against the argument, which for some odd reason
is the reaction I am expecting. Please show me that you are better then that, and that I am not actually wasting my time here with you!
Onto the McKenna brothers, and their discovery of time being fractal through mathematical calculations of the King Wen sequence of the I-Ching:
Their studies began with the I Ching, which is composed of 64 hexagrams, or six-line figures. It struck them that 6 x 64 = 384, which is exceptionally
close to the number of days in 13 lunar months (29.5306 x 13 = 383.8978), and that maybe the I Ching was originally an ancient Chinese calendar.
Further multiples had astronomical significance:
1 day x 64 x 6 = 384 days = 13 lunar months
384 days x 64 = 67 years, 104.25 days = 6 minor sunspot cycles
67 years, 104.25 days x 64 = 4306+ years = 2 Zodiac ages
4306+ years x 6 = 25836 years = 1 precession of the equinoxes
The importance of the 67 year point in the math became more apparent after realizing:
2012 minus 67 years = 1945, a year of great change
2012 minus 4,300 years (67x64) = 2300 BC, the beginning of historical time
2012 minus 275,000 years (4300 x 64) = the emergence of Homo sapiens
2012 minus 18 million years (275,000 x 64) = the height of the age of mammals
2012 minus 1.3 billion years = the beginning of life on our planet
I'll continue once you demonstrate the aptitude to listen and rebut facts, not the opinions of users. Like I said I'm not sure if I'm wasting my time
here or not, I would like to think that I'm not and that you're not just employing sophisticated trolling for whatever reason seems logical enough to
you.
Edit: You also seem to have completely glossed over my post giving you the exact mathematical forumla for the construction of the Timewave, in
order to reply to the shorter snippets Zagari is posting. Review the mathematics, then return to this thread with your
educated opinion. All
you are bringing to the table right now is unsubstantiated opinion, exactly what you are ridiculing other posters for doing. Until you do that, I will
consider your logical fallacies and straw man debating completely unrelated to the discussion of the Timewave.
