. I invite you to join me as we embark upon a powerful new way of thinking about time and our future. I got this book because I have an intense interest at the moment of how time moves for us. Yet this cycle was known to ancient peoples, including the Mayans. What makes this model so important today is that the returning cycles also carry a window of opportunity—a choice point—that allows us to choose a new outcome for the cycle. A friend recommended this book as a must-read before the now infamous date of December 21, 2012, and I am glad that I did.
The flip side, however, was that dates were close enough to significant events that it wasn't ignorable either. There was no singing from my mom as she went about her endless routines of homemaking. What are such obvious cycles telling us about the nature of our lives, our world, and even time itself? When we think about our lives from this perspective, it should come as no surprise that the cycles that play such a powerful role in the world play an equally powerful role in our personal lives. Did you know that all events - from war and peace between nations, to personal relationships and familial hardships - are actually the repeating patterns of our past? In a powerful yet comprehensive style, Gregg gives us a way to make sense of the rapid, and often dramatic, change of today's world. He starts drawing patterns with events like military issues andterrorist attacks using wild examples including things that didn't actually happen but instead were thought about. Bush, the conditions of the pattern seem to have held true.
He introduces some scientific principles and information that really made me think. The earth will then begin the long trip anew. What makes this model so important today is that the returning cycles also carry a window of opportunity--a choice point--that allows us to choose a new outcome for the cycle. Gregg suggests that is we can see time form this perspective, the past reveals the great secret of our moment in history and what we can expect as we approach December 21, 2012! In a narrative format of easy-to-read science and true-life accounts, Fractal Time shows us what we can expect as we close the Great World Age described by the Mayan Calendar, and the secret to our moment in history. It's precisely this disconnected feeling that seems to be the consequence of the cyclic journey that carries us to the far end of our galactic orbit. One was a friendship and the other was a romance; and both involved what I perceived as betrayal of trust, confidences, and promises. But that doesn't mean it works.
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 know there has been climate change and extinction events in earth's past. What makes this model so important today is that the returning cycles also carry a window of opportunity— a choice point—that allows us to choose a new outcome for the cycle. Remember, on the internet, buyer beware. He says it is based on research and written for the layman. I see so many people without it. Haven't read it myself, but the idea of historic cycles giving rise to a new age, makes sense.
The key: If you know where to look in the past, you know what to expect when the same conditions return in the present and future. He went on his way in peace surrounded by loved ones. Rather than focusing on end time theories, Braden explores the idea of Time Codes and Choice Points by using mathematics for his calculations and how they may relate to life and planetary cycles. Because the cycles repeat, the seed for 2012 has already happened and the pattern already exists! Both Presidents had four children, and both had lost two of them before they reached their teens. To them this book will just add fuel to that fire. Both had been shot on a Friday.
My advice: don't take it too seriously in terms of time fractals. The date is etched into stone monuments that were built to last until the end of time. Little more than 20 years earlier, another President had tragically died in office. The key: If you know where to look in the past, you know what to expect when the same conditions return in the present and future. We have all heard the truism that if you do not learn from history, you run the risk of repeating your mistakes, which applies to nations, governments and individuals themselves.
Nearly all of his research into 'fractal time' came from Terence McKenna's work in the idea of an overlapping fractal depth in time and novelty, yet he never mentioned McKenna, , Novelty Theory, and yet these laid the groundwork for nearly everything Braden spoke about on the show. Summary In his latest book, former senior computer systems designer and bestselling author Gregg Braden merges these ancient and modern world views into a powerful new model of time. With that end, a new world age begins. Hopi Language Another unfortunate reference is his misread of the brilliant work of Benjamin Lee Whorf whose insights into the structure of Hopi language and world view, had Braden explored them in depth, would have surely altered the tone and conclusions of this book. The book is premised on the observation that time is not linear but is composed of cycles many different sizes e. I myself can do better, and must try harder, and the work? Synopsis In this fascinating book, Gregg Braden merges the modern discoveries of nature's patterns fractals with the ancient view of a cyclic universe.
Should we read some ominous meaning into the strong storms and earthquakes we've had since the century turned? Again, another book about how science and spirituality are once again converging. I am in the son and the son lives in me. I figured it can't be a bad idea. The last name of the men who replaced them in office was the same—Johnson—and both Johnsons were born 100 years apart. Is time really the best tool to measure the vast potential that may be at our door step not all too soon? But the truth is that this is a well-written, well-researched look into the new science of quantum physics and the nature of time itself.
