Timewave Zero

Can mankind have such a jump in consciousness over the next four years that the planet can be literally transformed. If there was a Planet X headed our way, could we get prepared for whatever that might mean? I'll not list another half dozen possible scenarios predicted for 2012. Has there been a time in history when there was a massive, exponential jump in consciousness? The answer is yes and it's called the Axial Age.  

Terrence McKenna called such a concept as Timewave Zero.

Another name is "novelty theory". It is an idea conceived by Terence McKenna from the early 1970s until his death in the year 2000. Novelty theory involves ontology, morphogenesis, and eschatology. Novelty, in this context, can be thought of as newness, density of complexification, and dynamic change as opposed to static habituation. According to McKenna, when "novelty" is graphed over time, a fractal waveform known as timewave zero or simply the timewave results.

Ray Kurzweil speaks of a similar concept but calls it singularity. Singularity is a mathematical formula that breaks down and becomes meaningless after a certain point- as in dividing something by a zero!

What is so interesting is how Terrence McKenna's theory began in 1960 with a novelty increase factor of 64 and continuing until with such exponential novelty and changes until- December 22, 2012. Mind you, this was long before Terrence McKenna had ever heard of the Mayan long count calendar ending December 21, 2012.

And the point is?

There are many but let's limit them to two. First, we are definitely moving into an era (are actually way into it) wherein productivity, knowledge, computational abilities, and overall speed of expansion in all things will blow us away. Secondly, the year 2012, and the month December, keeps coming back to haunt us as something special ancient cultures (many) and modern prophets keep pointing us to December, 2012.

Maybe we should spend some serious time trhying to figure out what it means!
