I have yet to see any major natural disasters repeating similarly across cycles - it's been rare but could very well happen. What's guaranteed is that it will be even more chaotic than now, and noticeably so when compared to the stretches of time between the shifts on the graph.

The Timewave is a code embedded within time itself. It connects natural time with conscious time and gives a level of meaning to all events. The code is counting down to something in the near future, however it’s not clear whether it's a transition point in an infinite cycle or an endpoint leading to the 'flatline' of our known existence.
The Timewave cannot exist without both natural time & conscious time (the conscious perception of its natural flow). These two threads of time are joined together via a gridwork, like steps on a ladder. The best representation of this is the double helix of DNA. The gridwork, or steps up the ladder, are specific points along the timewave. Each point has a different value or level of novelty, and for some reason the timewave seems to be mapped out at the very point of its creation/manifestation.
The timewave is literally a skeleton over which conscious reality can form, like a wire frame model. The grid values are not naturally changeable, though which events occur at certain points along the wave are. The specifics of what happens at each point are determined by the collective consciousness of the observers, much like that which is represented in quantum theory.
Not only do these gridpoints intersect events in our reality, they also intersect all local parallel realities, joining all conscious existence into one undulating wave (like a blanket covering the bed of spacetime).
The timewave is like a thumbprint, an identity unique to an entire civilization.
Menashi-Kunashir Rebellion or War (クナシリ・メナシの戦い Kunashiri Menashi no tatakai?) or Menashi-Kunashir Battle was a battle in 1789 between Ainu (an ethnic group indigenous to Hokkaidō) and Japanese on the Shiretoko Peninsula in northeastern Hokkaidō. It began in May, 1789 when Ainu attacked Japanese on Kunashir Island and parts of the Menashi District as well as at sea. More than 70 Japanese were killed. The Japanese executed 37 Ainu identified as conspirators and arrested many others. Reasons for the revolt are not entirely clear, but they are believed to include a suspicion of poisoned saké being given to Ainu in a loyalty ceremony, and other objectionable behavior by Japanese traders.
