The story of evolution is, I believe, a story of repeating patterns. We are at a crisis point, but the planet has been here before. Evolution has been punctuated with upheavals, which virtually wiped out existing species, including the best-known casualties, the dinosaurs. Those upheavals were directly linked to environmental catastrophes just as today’s crisis is. As the human population increases, we are competing for space with the other organisms with whom we share the planet. But the good news is that similar pressures in the past have brought into being a new way of living and will do so again. We are concluding one evolutionary cycle and preparing to embark upon another. As this cycle comes to an end, people are becoming understandably apprehensive and alarmed by the failures in the structures that support civilization. I believe, however, that

the “dinosaurs� that are currently raping nature will become extinct.

The survivors will be those who realize that our

thoughtless ways are destructive to the planet and to us.

Bruce H. Lipton Ph.D Excerpt from "The Biology of Belief�

Greek text, The Elements of Euclid,

How can I be so sure? My certitude comes from my study of fractal geometry. Here’s a definition of geometry, which will explain why it is important for studying

the structure of our biosphere. Geometry is a mathematical assessment of “the way the different parts of something fit together in relation to each other.” Until 1975, the only geometry available for study was Euclidean, which was summarized in the thirteen-volume ancient Greek text, The Elements of Euclid, written around 300 B.C. For spatially oriented students, Euclidian geometry is easy to understand because it deals with structures like cubes and spheres and cones that can be mapped on graph paper.

However, Euclidian geometry does not apply to nature. For

example, you cannot map a tree, a cloud, or a mountain using the mathematical formulas of this geometry. In nature, most organic and inorganic structures display more irregular and chaotic-appearing patterns. These natural images can only be created by using the recently discovered mathematics called fractal geometry. French mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot launched the field of fractal mathematics and geometry in 1975. Like quantum physics, fractal (fractional) geometry forces us to consider those irregular patterns, a quirkier world of curvy shapes and objects with more than three dimensions.

Benoit Mandelbrot

List of fractals by Hausdorff dimension

Koch snowflake

The mathematics of fractals is amazingly simple because you need only one equation, using only simple multiplication and addition. The same equation is then repeated ad infinitum. For example, the “Mandelbrot set” is based on the simple formula of taking a number, multiplying it by itself and then adding the original number. The result of that equation is then used as the input of the subsequent equation; the result of that equation is then used as the input for the next equation and so on. The challenge is that even though each equation follows the same formula, these equations must be repeated millions of times to actually visualize a fractal pattern. The manual labor and time needed to complete millions of equations prevented early mathematicians from recognizing the value of fractal geometry. With the advent of powerful computers Mandelbrot was able to define this new math.

Inherent in the geometry of

fractals is the

creation of ever-repeating, “self-similar” patterns nested within one another. You can get a rough idea of the repeating shapes by picturing the eternally popular toy, hand-painted Russian nesting dolls. Each smaller structure is a miniature, but not necessarily an exact version of the larger form. Fractal geometry emphasizes the relationship between the patterns in a whole structure and the patterns seen in parts of a structure. For example, the pattern of twigs on a branch resembles the pattern of limbs branching off the trunk. The pattern of a major river looks like the patterns of its smaller tributaries. In the human lung, the fractal pattern of branching along the bronchus repeats in the smaller bronchioles. The arterial and venous blood vessels and the peripheral nervous system also display similar repeating patterns.

Are the repetitive images observed in nature simply coincidence? I believe the answer is definitely “no.” To explain why I believe fractal geometry defines the structure of life, let’s revisit two points.

First, the story of evolution is, as I’ve emphasized many times in this book, the story of ascension to higher awareness. Second, in our study of the membrane, we defined the receptor-effector protein complex (IMPs) as the fundamental unit of awareness/intelligence. Consequently, the more receptor-effector proteins (the olives in our bread and butter sandwich model) an organism possesses,

the more awareness it can have and the

higher it is on the evolutionary ladder. However, there are physical restrictions for increasing the number of receptor-effector proteins that can be packed into the cell’s m e m b r a n e . T h e c e l l m e m b r a n e ’s thickness measures seven to eight nanometers, the diameter of its phospholipid bilayer. The average d i a m e t e r o f t h e re c e p t o r- e ff e c t o r “awareness” proteins is approximately the same as the phospholipids in which they are embedded. Because the membrane’s thickness is so tightly defined, you can’t cram in lots of IMPs by stacking them on top of one another. You’re stuck with a one-protein-thick layer. Consequently, the only option for increasing the number of awareness proteins is to increase the surface area of the membrane.

Let’s go back to our membrane “sandwich” model. More olives mean more awareness—the more olives you can layer in the sandwich, the smarter the sandwich. Which has more intelligence capacity, a slice of cocktail rye or a large slab of sour dough? The answer is simple: the larger the surface area of the bread, the greater the number of olives that can fit into the sandwich. Relating this analogy to biological awareness, the more membrane surface area the cell has, the more protein “olives” it can manage. Evolution, the expansion of awareness, can then be physically defined by the increase of membrane surface area. Mathematical studies have found that fractal geometry is the best way to get the most surface area (membrane) within a three-dimensional space (cell). Therefore, evolution becomes a fractal affair. Repeating patterns in nature are a necessity, not a coincidence,

of “fractal” evolution.

My point is not to get caught up in the mathematical details of the modeling. There are repetitive fractal patterns in nature and in evolution as well. The strikingly beautiful, computergenerated pictures that illustrate

fractal patterns should remind us that,

despite our modern angst and the seeming chaos of our world, there is order in nature,

and there is nothing truly new under the sun.

Evolution’s repetitive, fractal patterns allow us to predict that humans will figure out how to expand their consciousness in order to climb another rung of the evolutionary ladder. The exciting, esoteric world of fractal geometry provides a mathematical model that suggests that the “arbitrariness, planlessness, randomness, and accident� that Mayr wrote about is an outmoded concept. In fact, I believe it is an idea that does not serve humanity and should, as rapidly as possible, go the way of the pre-Copernican Earth-centered Universe.

Once we realize that there are repeating, ordered patterns in nature and evolution, the lives of cells, which inspired this book and the changes in my life, become even more instructive.

For billions of years, cellular living systems have been carrying out an effective peace plan that enables them to enhance their survival, as well as the survival of the other organisms in the biosphere. Imagine a population of trillions of individuals living under

one roof in a state of perpetual happiness. Such a community exists—it is called the healthy human body. Clearly cellular communities work better than human communities— there are no left-out, “homeless” cells in our bodies. Unless of course, our cellular communities are in profound disharmony causing some cells to withdraw from cooperating with the community. Cancers essentially represent homeless, jobless cells that are living off the other cells in the community.

If humans were to model the lifestyle displayed by healthy communities of cells, our societies and our planet would be more peaceful and vital. Creating such a peaceful community is a challenge because every person perceives the world differently. So essentially, there are six billion human versions of reality on this planet, each perceiving its own truth. As the population grows, they are bumping up against each other.

Cells faced a similar challenge in early evolution. Shortly after the earth was formed, single-celled organisms rapidly evolved. Thousands of variations of unicellular bacteria, algae, yeast, and protozoa, each with varying levels of awareness, appeared over the next three-and-a-half billion years. It is probable that like us, those single-celled organisms

began to multiply seemingly out of control and to over-populate their environment. They began to bump up against each other and wonder, “Will there be enough for me?” It must have been scary for them, too. With that new, enforced closeness and the consequent change in their environment, they searched for an effective response to their pressures. Those pressures led to a new and glorious era in evolution, in which single cells joined together in altruistic multicellular communities. The end result was humans, at or near the top of the evolutionary ladder.

Similarly, I believe that the stresses of the increasing human population will be responsible for pushing us up another rung on the evolutionary ladder.

We will, I believe,

come together in a global community.

The members of that

enlightened community will recognize that we are made in the image of our environment, i.e. that we are Divine and that we have to operate, not in a survival of the fittest manner, but in a way that supports everyone and everything on this planet.

“..those single-celled organisms began to multiply seemingly out of control and to over-populate their environment. They began to bump up against each other and wonder,

“Will there be enough for me?�

History Repeats in Love and War:

Fractal Warnings 
 for the Future The look on my teacher’s face that day is something I’ll always remember. She was obviously shaken as she walked into our classroom and asked us to remain calm, collect our coats and supplies, and walk quickly to the buses that were waiting for us outside. It was the middle of the day and much too early for classes to end. I remember thinking that our teacher knew something she wasn’t telling us. Why else would she be wiping tears from her eyes while asking us to stay calm? It was a different world in 1963. The Cold War between the Soviet Union and the U.S. was at its peak. The frightening image broadcast around the world of FRACTAL TIME The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age By Gregg Braden

Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev holding his shoe and pounding it against a desk while shouting to America, “We will bury you!” was still fresh in my memory. I remember thinking of it each week as our class practiced dropping to our knees and ducking under our desks to protect ourselves in the event of a

allowed to do so in school.” And just like that, I walked with my classmates to our buses with absolutely no indication of when, or even if, we would return.

Only a year earlier, in October 1962, everyone had breathed a sigh of relief as the two superpowers backed away from one of the Cold War’s most visible confrontations and the brink of nuclear war—the Cuban missile crisis. The girl in the seat next to me remembered it, too, and whispered that maybe the “missiles were back.” We all knew that something had happened. We just didn’t know what. It’s with the backdrop of such a world that I joined hundreds of thousands of other children across the country who left school early that day. It was November 22, 1963. As we filed toward the only door leading out of the classroom, the last thing I heard was my teacher’s voice attempting to provide some kind of explanation. “Your parents will have to tell you what has happened,” she said. “We’re not

When I arrived home, our family living room was like a replay of what I had experienced at school. My mother’s eyes were red from crying, and she was obviously frightened. “Here, take a look at the television,” she said. Together we watched our family’s tiny black-andwhite TV asthe unthinkable unfolded. Each station was showing the same images, with the same story: the President of the United States had been assassinated. The nation was in shock. There were so many unanswered questions. Who did it? Why? How could such a thing have happened?

Déjà Vu, 100 Years Later

terms of things like the deaths of Presidents.

Just a couple of days after John F. Kennedy’s assassination, our local newspaper printed a story that rekindled my fascination with patterns.

At first I simply skimmed the statistics out of curiosity. While they were interesting, they seemed so generalized that I was unconvinced that there was any great mystery. My thought was that any similarities were just that: parallels that the staff writers were drawing to create a flashy story. Both Presidents, for example, had been deeply involved with racial equality and civil rights. Both had wives who had lost children while living in the White House. Both had been shot on a Friday. Both had died from a gunshot wound to the head.

While I was moved by the life, ambition, and vision of Kennedy himself, the story was about the curious circumstances that surrounded his death. I read it and reread it. The title of the article was “History Repeats Itself.” Its focus was on the eerie set of “coincidences” that connect the 1963 assassination of President Kennedy to another that had occurred nearly 100 years before—that of Abraham Lincoln. While I had always been interested in patterns and cycles, I had never really thought of them in

All were certainly uncanny coincidences, but not enough to convince me that anything out of the ordinary was being revealed. The more I read, however, the more specific and bizarre the parallels became.

Kennedy and Lincoln's Assassination

Lincoln, for example, was sitting in box number 7 of Ford’s Theatre when he was killed. Kennedy was riding in car number 7—the make was a Lincoln offered by the Ford Motor Company—when he died. Both were with their wives at the time. Before his presidency, Lincoln had been elected to Congress in 1846. One hundred years later, in 1946, Kennedy was elected to Congress. Lincoln became President in 1860, Kennedy 100 years later in 1960. The last name of the men who replaced them in office was the same—Johnson—and both Johnson’s were born 100 years apart. Andrew Johnson was born in 1808, while Lyndon Johnson was born in 1908. As the comparisons continued, the similarities certainly seemed to be more than coincidence. They even went beyond the assassinations themselves, weaving their way throughout the personal lives of the men, their families, and their friends. Both Presidents had four children, and both had lost two of them before they reached their teens. Both had lost a son while they were serving in the White House. The doctors for Lincoln and Kennedy had the same name: Charles Taft. The name of Lincoln’s private secretary was John (Kennedy’s first name), and that of Kennedy’s secretary was Lincoln (Abraham’s last name). The patterns even extended into the lives of the men who killed them—into their

personal histories, their motivations, and their captures. A law-enforcement agent named Baker, for example, detained Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth. An officer who was also named Baker held Kennedy’s shooter, Lee Harvey Oswald, in custody. It seemed that the patterns were endless. But perhaps more important, they are undeniable. Regardless of why or how these two events separated by 100 years could be so similar, the fact is that they are. While this example could be chalked up to some sort of bizarre karma between these two men, the reality is that it exists. Whether we like to admit the similarities or not, the answer to our question of whether or not history repeats itself appears obvious. For at least these two events, it appears to be yes. Along with our answer comes an even deeper question: Are the similarities that we see between the assassinations of two American Presidents separated by 100 years part of a greater pattern? If so,

what is the pattern, and what does it tell us about the cyclic nature of time?

The 20-Year “Curse” In the same way we search for patterns to find meaning in the mysterious events of our day, scholars do the same thing with historic moments of the past. Following the tragic death of President Lincoln in the 1860s, for example, historians began to suspect that his assassination might be part of a pattern that was emerging. Little more than 20 years earlier, another President had tragically died in office. In 1841, William Henry Harrison had become ill and died of pneumonia. With President Harrison’s death, it seemed that the seed had been planted for a pattern of such tragedies. In the years that have followed, the suspicions

of those early scholars have been confirmed. For reasons that are as eerie as they are mysterious, in the nearly 160 years that followed Harrison’s death approximately every 20 years the U.S. President has either died in office or has survived an attempt on his life. With the unsuccessful attempts to assassinate Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, the conditions of the pattern seem to have held true. The question that historians are now asking is whether or not their survival after these assassination attempts has put an end to the “20-year curse” of American Presidents. The presidential cycle of 2020 will tell the story. When we look at the statistics, however, they seem to speak for themselves.

Figure 14. Since the election of the United States President in 1840, the country has lost a sitting President to illness or violence every 20 years. (The election years given for McKinley and Roosevelt are for reelections.)

Whether we’re talking about the 100year coincidences between Kennedy and Lincoln or the 20-year presidential “curse,” three


are obvious:

Fact 1: There are cycles underlying both events. Fact 2: Both cycles are “triggered” by a seed event. Fact 3: The conditions of the seed event repeat at regular intervals. The facts are undeniable. The question for us is, what do they mean? What are such obvious cycles telling us about the nature of our lives, our world, and even time itself? We may find that the message encoded into a 3,000-year-old manuscript holds the answer. But, as is so often the case, with it we open the door to an even greater mystery.

Cycles & Seeds Photo by Piccolo Namek GNU

We’re living the end of time. Not the end of the world, but the end of a world age—a 5,125-year cycle of time—and the way we’ve known the world throughout that time. The present world age began in 3114 B.C. and will end in A.D. 2012. Because the end of anything also marks the beginning of what comes next, we’re also living the start of what follows the end of time: the next world age, which ancient traditions called the great cycle.

Position in the Heavens Our ancestors had an amazingly deep grasp of just what our experience of

Earth’s position in the heavens would affect the physical conditions in our world, as well as the emotional and spiritual experiences that we need to embrace them. cosmic cycles means on multiple levels. Somehow they knew that

Through myth, analogy, and metaphor, they reminded us that the farther we travel away from the source of such powerful energy, the deeper we are in darkness and the more out of sync we find ourselves with the fields that influence life here on Earth. From the traditions of the Hopi to the ancient Vedas, it’s this experience of separateness that is credited with our sense of being lost as well.

The reason:

Physically, our solar system is moving through shortest part of an orbit that looks like a flattened circle, an ellipsis whose far end carries us to the most distant point from the core of our home galaxy, the Milky Way.

The physical effect:

Both ancient traditions and modern science tell us that our location in this cyclic orbit determines how we experience the powerful sources of energy, such as the “massive magnetic fields,” which radiate from our galaxy’s core. Recent studies suggest that it is precisely such cycles that may explain the mysterious patterns of biodiversity—the rise and fall of life on Earth, such as the mass extinctions that happened 250 and 450 million years ago. Additionally, modern discoveries confirm that Earth’s position throughout the journey (orbit, tilt, and wobble) create the ever-changing cycles that influence everything from temperature and climate to polar ice and the magnetic fields of the earth.

The emotional/spiritual effect: As we travel farther from our galaxy’s core, our distance from the energy located there was described by

ancient traditions as the loss of a connection that we sense both spiritually and emotionally. Scientific links between the quality of Earth’s magnetic fields, how they’re affected by cosmic conditions, and our feeling of well-being seem to precisely support such ancient beliefs. In the same way that Earth’s rotation makes the darkest part of the night appear just before the dawn, our position in the heavens is such that the darkest part of our world age appears right before our heavenly orbit begins the return that brings us closer to our galaxy’s core. With that return, we experience relief from the cataclysmic forces of the cycle’s darkness. And just as the night must pass in order to get to the new day, the only way to arrive at the light of the next cycle is to finish the darkness of this one. We all know that dark experiences definitely exist in our world, and we don’t need to look far to find them; however, there’s also more to life than the suffering that the ancients foresaw— much more. Even in our time of great darkness, the polarities of peace, healing, love, and compassion are alive, well, and abundant.

The cycles of nature apply to our personal lives as well as to global events.

The Seeds of Love and Betrayal While we probably know this relationship intuitively, it often shows up in our lives in ways, and at times, that are the least opportune or that we least expect. For example, we’ve all heard of people who leave their relationships, jobs, and friends and move to a new city for a “fresh start.” You can probably guess what often happens to those of us who do. While a change of scenery can sometimes be just what the doctor ordered, it’s not

uncommon to find that while the people, weather, and skylines are altered, the circumstances that we thought we were leaving behind us may not. Why would they? The cycles of our world and our lives are made of time and space, the stuff of the universe that cannot be bound by a building or a city. 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. Once again, the key to uncovering such patterns is to recognize where they begin.

The house felt different that morning. Although it was a Saturday, a day that my father normally used to catch up on the sleep he’d lost from working long hours earlier in the week, he and my mom were up early. Even though I could hear them in the kitchen, it just didn’t feel like a typical weekend. There was no singing from my mom as she went about her endless routines of homemaking. The TV screen that would normally echo the news of the week was black and cold; and there was no radio blaring Peter, Paul and Mary songs from my parents’ bedroom. Even though my mom and dad were up, except for the shuffling of footsteps moving from one room to another across the hardwood floors, the house was absolutely silent.

back.” That was it. I watched as he closed his suitcase and followed him as he walked down the hallway and passed my mom in the kitchen. Her eyes were still red from crying after the conversation they’d had the night before. Together, she and I watched as my dad left our house that day. I didn’t know it at the time, but I had just witnessed the ending of my parents’ marriage. I was 11 at the time.

Cautiously, I tiptoed from my room down the hallway and peeked into Mom and Dad’s bedroom. My father was there with a small suitcase open on the bed, packing his crisp corporate shirts. “Good morning, son,” he said as he caught sight of me from out of the corner of his eye. “Come in here for a minute. I want to talk to you.” Things had been tense in our house for a while. I knew that my parents were having a tough time, and my first thought was that I was going to get an explanation at last. I was right, but it wasn’t the one that I’d expected.

At first I believed that, except for not having my dad around, everything in my life would continue as normal— everything, that is, except those things where other boys my age had their fathers present and I didn’t. From parent/teacher nights at school and father/son weekends with the Boy Scouts, to my first public speech to our church congregation and awards presentations at my swim meets, I began to realize that something was missing in my life and that I’d lost something else on that Saturday morning as well.

“I’m going away for a while,” my father said, “and I’m not sure when I’m coming

It wasn’t until years later that I began to understand how much that moment affected me. As I came to terms with what that day had meant to me, I realized that I had lost not only my father, but also my family—at least the way I had known them for the first 11 years of my life.

The reason why I’m sharing this story here is because it offers an example of how an experience carrying a strong emotional imprint at one time in life can become the primer for the conditions of that experience to repeat throughout other times.

It’s the negative patterns that will inevitably arise from the situations of everyday life— moments of loss, hurt, and betrayal, for example—that can become the unconscious seeds for a pattern that shows up again and again. Fortunately, just as repeating cycles are also opportunities to change the patterns for

If the experience is a positive one of love and life-affirming emotions, then it’s probably not a problem. There’s certainly no need to recognize it and heal anything. My sense is, however, that we seldom complain of finding ourselves “stuck” in mysterious patterns of joy, healing, and peace in our lives. When we do, it’s probably not something that we want to change.

war and aggression on a worldwide scale,

if we know our individual cycles and how they work, they can become powerful allies in healing some of the greatest hurts of our personal lives.

Calculating Personal Cycles The Time Code Calculator can help us find such cycles in our lives. To the calculator, a cycle is a cycle, whether it is personal or global. The key is to recognize that life follows nature’s rhythms, and our emotional patterns are part of life.

The key in exploring personal cycles is to recognize, first, that it’s happening; and, second, the frequency with which it repeats. In doing so, we can prepare for the conditions the cycle offers while making the choices that become the new patterns of the future.

Herein we find the value of using the Time Code Calculator for the 2012 end date. Just as we can explore our personal histories to find the seeds of what we can expect in the future, we can use our knowledge of fractal patterns and nature’s cycles to discover the key dates that tell us where to look in the past for the conditions that we can expect for 2012 . . . and beyond.

The key to 2012 and our time in history is to understand the language of nature’s cycles and to use that language today to prepare for the future. Ultimately we may discover that our ability to understand and apply the “rules” of Fractal Time holds the key to our deepest healing, our greatest joy, and our survival as a species.

The Thumb Print of God: A Spiritual Exploration Through

Fractal Mathematics nemesis” the sciences, rallied together in the movie What the Bleep, where quantum physics exploded into the limelight as a doorway to understanding the spiritual nature of reality and the two worlds merged as one. Today there is another bridge being gapped, this time within the realm of mathematics. Often referred to in the sciences as the “Thumb Print of God”, fractals are bringing the power of nature, creation and geometry to the forefront.

The fractal art images t h a t C h e r y l c re a t e s ema nate energ y. This energy helps to raise the vibrations of both the space which we display a fractal art print and our own personal energy.

Spirituality and it’s once perceived “arch-

The energy of each and every Fractal Energy Art Print is completely unique and has a specific meaning and effect. It is believed that fractals are one of the 'new tools' on the planet today to aid us on our journey to Ascension.

As the geometrical structure of all things found in nature, fractals are selfrepeating, irregular shapes. From the largest scale down to the smallest, the same basic shape can be found at all levels of magnification. Examples of fractals in nature include snowflakes, forests and coastlines; even the human DNA is constructed on the basis of this awe-inspiring geometry.

By Cheryl Lee Harnish

While it may be hard for the average human mind to fully grasp the concept of fractals, back in the early 1980’s one brilliant mind did just that and discovered nature’s secret while working for IBM. The fated destiny of this brilliant mathematician brought him to North America from Paris, where he desperately sought refuge from the confines of the standard mathematical concepts of his day. Priding himself on thinking “outside the box”, Benoit Mandelbrot worked on long-forgotten mathematical theories from the early 20th century in the only place where their true workings could be revealed. Given free-rein at this massive computer company,

Mandelbrot worked out these complicated formulas to unveil some of the best kept secrets of Mother Nature herself. 
 Today fractal mathematics is used in a multitude of applications, from medicine to research science, engineering and yes sadly enough, in high tech government spy technology. Beginning with one of the amazing discoveries of our day, with the seemingly basic fractal formula z -> z^2 + c , we have gained advances into such topics as the Chaos Theory, where in simple layman’s terms the findings expose what appears to be random chaotic events as being well structured patterned happenings. The Chaos theory replies to the question, “Does God play dice?” with a resounding NO for an answer.



The Breaking of space, from non integer Multibrots/ Nmondal/CC 3.0

Fascinating doorways into the mysteries of life itself are being exposed by the research being conducted on the human DNA. Working from the basis that DNA is constructed from fractal patterning, science is now revealing an amazing world of communication happening between the DNA commonly referred to as “Junk”. Comprising nearly 95% of all DNA found in the human body, these non-coding DNA are using fractal forms of information transference. Breaking the code of this secret language is the next step for science, though it may not be completed any time soon. 

By Cheryl Lee Harnish

These findings have created a different kind of stir for those who look at science with spiritual eyes however, and probing questions abounding. Can the language of the genes expose any truth behind the new age theories of human evolution to a 12 strand DNA being? Do these new findings have any correlation to recent findings in the changing strands being discovered? If 95% of our DNA isn’t junk after all, just what role does it play in creation and human advancement? Could the languaging between cells and genes within our own bodies aid us in gaining a greater understanding of our own communion with God? 
 While we may have to wait to resolve the answers to these perplexing questions, studies at the University of Oregon are shedding light on the physiological impact of fractal images on the human mind. An increased a sense of well-being and a mental boost were just some of the findings of this research. Mandelbrot himself had stated in the PSB documentary, ‘Fractals: The Colors of Infinity’ that the subconscious mind naturally understands and recognizes fractals. This leads to the question of deciphering what is actually being communicated from within a fractal image that can restore a sense of well-being and give an individual a mental boost? Are we at the threshold of a whole new perspective from which to look at the world and the way in which the human beings interacts with it?

 One could easily become lost within the scientific data and findings, one thing is for certain humans resonate with these mathematical structures, and the benefit of understanding them further could have a very profound effect on man-kind, both intellectually and spiritually.

Fractal Energy Art is created based on specific individual words or phrases. These fractals contain the meaning of the word or phrase and display how the energy of the particular language phrase is universally experienced and expressed. As well, the energy contained within the fractal emanates from the image. This type of fractal artwork can be used as healing tools and meditation aids. They also work as energy cleansers within a room, moving energy and filling the space with positive energy set at a very high vibration. In this regard, they work much like crystals and orgone generators. 

Perfect for both self-counsel and professional readings. The cards create stunning spreads and are extremely easy to read and interpret.

Each card contains an intuitively channeled Fractal Art image, which emanates a unique vibration and meaning. Fractals are one of the “new tools” on the planet today to aid us into Ascension.

Spontaneous Evolution: I see the radical changes before us as the necessary step for our survival and our evolution.

Spontaneous Evolution: Excerpts from an Interview with Bruce Lipton with Linda M. Potter Dr. Lipton, maybe we should start with the basics. As a global community, we’ve gotten ourselves into “this fine mess” through poor choices a nd irresponsible actions. What shapes our behavior?

...our beliefs reflect beliefs we acquire from institutions like academia, religion, politics, economy and health care . These institutionalized beliefs have shaped and held the world’s current mass thinking. Originally, the current beliefs were very useful in helping civilization evolve; however, our continued use of these beliefs is now detrimental and leading us to extinction. The crises the world now faces is evidence that these beliefs are profoundly flawed. Since the 1870s, we have lived in a world where we seek Truth through science. When we ask, “Is it true?” we are really asking, “Is it scientific?” When opinion is handed down from science, we buy it as “truth.” However, frontier s c i e n c e h a s re c e n t l y c h a l l e n g e d t h e fundamental “truths” of conventional science, truths that represent the foundation of today’s beliefs. Though science is changing its truth, the public is unaware of this new knowledge.

Simply, we’re living by truths that are no longer valid.

Human behavior is the consequence of a large, collective number of personal individual beliefs. The more people that share the exact same beliefs, the more they manifest an energy field which then precipitates a complementary physical field. The way that we’re living and the beliefs that we entertain collectively are materializing as an expression.

“Belief” is a concept that we most often associate with religion. How does religion fit into this picture? The role of “belief” in our lives isn’t new stuff — it’s ancient. I am not a religious person, especially because I think that in part, the institution of religion has led to many of the problems that we currently face. But, if you just listen to some of the words attributed directly to Jesus, not particularly other people’s interpretations of them, he offered, “You can heal your life with your belief. You can do all the miracles I can do, but you don’t believe.” This wisdom in light of the “new” biology is absolutely true. There are fundamentalist Christians in the south who do something mindblowing and profound —in Testifying that God protects them, they drink strychnine poison in toxic doses. And nothing happens to them. That ’s kind of miraculous, isn’t it? Other people walk across hot coals. If they fully believe they can, they’re not going to get burned. Questioning that belief in the middle of the walk leads to burns and blisters. The fundamental truth is that we are not victims; we are creators. And it’s all based on our beliefs.

The fundamental truth is that we are not victims; we are creators. And it’s all based on our beliefs.

Newtonian emphasis on the physical reality left us with the belief in a physical existence, but challenged the belief in a spiritual afterlife. However, quantum physics has changed the game. Rather than a physical emphasis, the new science recognizes that the Universe is made out of a “shaping” energy called the field. The field, by definition, is: invisible moving forces that shape the physical world. Interestingly, the definition of spirit is: invisible moving forces that shape the physical world. Quantum physics reveals that both matter and energy exists, and they are both the same thing! The original quantum physicists in the 1930s recognized that the Universe was immaterial and it was based on human consciousness. Simply, it’s through our consciousness that we manifest the world we experience. While most people would perceive of life on Earth as being more akin to purgatory or even Hell, the truth is we are living in Heaven, a place where we can create our dearest wishes. You might say, “I wouldn’t create this mess.” And I would agree with you, but, as mentioned, we are only consciously creating our world five percent of the time. The rest of our creation efforts are shaped by our subconscious programming, using beliefs that are actually controlled by other people’s beliefs. What if you were creating your life strictly from conscious wishes and desires? You actually did that if you ever fell head over heels in love. The period called the “honeymoon” wherein you created Heaven on Earth, is a reflection of your creative abilities and, as recognized by science, was due to you operating nearly 100 percent of the time using your conscious mind and not defaulting to the subconscious programs.

The Unconscious Mind Unveiled

The field, by definition, is: invisible moving forces that shape the physical world. Interestingly, the definition of spirit is: invisible moving forces that shape the physical world.

In your new book, you wrote that, “We are currently in dire need of evolutionary advancement and don’t have time for a slow,

What does “spontaneous” evolution look like? g radual evolution.”

Human civilization is coming to a fork in the road and if we don’t make the right choices, our destination may end here. If we make the appropriate changes, jumping out of a belief system that is self-destructive and move into a belief system that is self and Naturesupporting, we can make a big impact and change destiny by creating one great community of human beings called Humanity. We really must step out of our current reality — out of this self-destructive manifestation — and entertain the creation of a new, healthy, harmonious reality. We are collectively creating a world, so if we collectively envision a different world, then we collectively experience a different world. The spontaneous part is that as soon as the consciousness changes — at that very moment — Earth changes occur as well.

Science has compared the rates of species extinction today with the mass extinctions events in the past. We are losing species faster today than in previous extinction events. For example, it is estimated that in 30 years the fish will be fished out of the ocean. The idea of a planet earth 30 years from now with no fish in the ocean seems like science fiction, but no, if we continue decimating the fish population and destroying the ocean’s ecosystems process, the end is evident and imminent. Our evolution and survival are based on the existence of a supportive environment. When we alter the environment too much and knock out species necessary in the chain of life, human survival is truly in question. The sixth mass extinction is a scientific reality and the conclusion of science is that it’s due to human behavior. We have to stop ignoring the future because it is not that far away anymore. If you or your children are planning to be around in 20 more years, you’re likely to see a major environmental catastrophe. Yet, if we wake up NOW, there is still time to make a positive impact and help avert what appears to be an inevitable crash.


“particle accelerator” The inner voice that speaks to me whispered these words “particle accelerator” and this is the nudge to explore... ---------------------As we pass through the photon belt The center of light Our Milky Way galaxy We are sprinkled with pixy dust and it’s golden light In truth this is the particle accelerator We all should be talking about For every 25,000 thousand years We align at this rift And on this rotation It accelerates our vibration Aligning us to higher consciousness

To much dark matter the Darth Vadir, the invader of our soul Its time for the light saber (savor) To fight for the heart spirit within The ancient myths has us transfixed And have manipulated and stolen our soul These energy vampires have every resource in their purse For they have mined your mind and even earths gold Note their message is one of fear So stay clear And remember that God too, resides within you And will protect you And guide you through

This brings us back to center From our inner to our outer space

Don’t get stuck in the old feed-back loop The old stories that replay in your mind This is the dragon chasing its tail And of the old reptilian mind

It’s called the shift of the ages A moment of illumination

This is the time for Self Mastery

One can feel its intensity Its laser precision As it casts out our shadow And brings things to light This golden light has a conductive design Jolting our minds Leaving us jittery Reflecting on our load

This is the test of this age To find our saintly grace And return to a loving space So as we pass through this particle accelerator The more coherent we are Body, mind and spirit we are The less bumpy the ride through the wave will be

Remember your pure chemistry And what you have been bonded to will detach if it does not serve you This is pure alchemy More radiation, a higher vibration Recalibrating and mutating our DNA As the parts and particles of our life’s detach And there is nothing to hold, or bond to Within this gap it can be a touch frightening So remember what the Hopi’s predicted Do not cling to things of old Flow into the river As your molecules let go And release what does not serve you For there is a promise of a Golden Age Which was predicated by the sages This is no time for judgement but to for-GIVE For these stories of old we were meant to sow It’s all part of this reality This world of duality Where shadow meets light The shadow side we played Was all part to the game The old crusades And our battle for light A perfect metaphor for life So what has been “Hermetically Sealed” Must be revealed

This is the time to raise “WILL” our great spirits to raise God has implanted a galactic center in you For as above, so within you And as we experience the poler shift And we are all of the one mind It will be a cosmic flip To a new transcript, Where the new polarity is light So shift into gear Rise your vibration And clean out your fears The old mind game is designed As a past illusions to just survive This matrix trip...here is a tip If if is not serving you it will put you in servitude and keep you frozen to THIS time.

The Global Coherence Initiative is a science-based, co-creative project to unite people in heart-focused care and intention, to facilitate the shift in global consciousness from instability and discord to balance, cooperation and enduring peace.

Earth Monitoring The Global Coherence Initiative helps individuals and groups work together, synchronistically and strategically to increase the impact of their efforts to create positive global change. •

Increase personal coherence for the benefit of ourselves and the planet Help shift the planetary consciousness baseline from selfcenteredness to wholeness care

Increase connection and social harmony

Empower our ability to navigate through global changes with less stress and more ease

Empower environmental responsibility and stewardship of the planet

The Global Coherence Initiative includes an important scientific measurement component. Advanced sensing technology, now being developed at the Institute of HeartMath, will allow us to observe changes in the earth’s magnetic field and test the hypothesis that the earth’s field is affected by mass human emotion, positive or negative. The Global Coherence Monitoring System (GCMS) consist of an ongoing increased instillation of sensors strategically located around the world. This system will enable a new level of scientific inquiry into the relationship between the earth’s magnetic field, collective human emotions and behaviors, and planetary changes.

The GCMS will allow us to test the hypotheses that: •

Strong collective human emotions are reflected in the earth’s field.

Groups of people in heart coherence can affect the earth’s field.

Changes in the earth’s field predict earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and similar planetary scale events, in order to give people advance warning.

----You can start now by becoming a member and learning how to increase your heart coherence and tracking your progress. While the monitoring system continues to be developed and the GCI community and activities continue to grow, the world needs your participation.

You can play an important part building this community.

You may not think that your environment and your thoughts are that rigidly similar and your reality so easily reproduced. But when you consider that your brain is a complete record of your past, and your mind is the product of your consciousness, in one sense you might always be thinking in the past. By responding with the same brain hardware that matches what you remember, you’re creating a level of mind that is identical to the past, because your brain is automatically firing existing circuits to reflect everything you already know, have experienced, and thus can predict. According to quantum law (which, by the way, is still working for you), your past is now becoming your future.

Reason this: When you think from your past memories, you can only create past experiences. As all of the “knowns” in your life cause your brain to think and feel in familiar ways, thus creating knowable outcomes, you continually reaffirm your life as you know it. And since your brain is equal to your environment, then each morning, your senses plug you into the same reality and initiate the same stream of consciousness.

All of the sensory input that your brain processes from the external world (that is, seeing, smelling, hearing, feeling, and tasting) turns your brain on to think equal to everything familiar in your reality. You open your eyes and you know the person lying next to you is your spouse because of your past experiences together. You hear barking outside your door, and you know it’s your dog wanting to go out. There’s a pain in your back, and you remember it’s the same pain you felt yesterday. You associate your outer, familiar world with who you think you are, by

remembering yourself in this dimension, this particular time and space.

Our Morning Routine: Plugging into Our Past Self What do most of us do each morning after we’ve been plugged into our reality by these sensory reminders of who we are, where we are, and so forth? Well, we remain plugged into this past self by following a highly routine, unconscious set of automatic behaviors.

For example, you probably wake up on the same side of the bed, slip into your robe the same way as always, look into the mirror to remember who you are, and shower following an automatic routine. Then you groom yourself to look like everyone expects you to look, and brush your teeth in your usual memorized fashion. You drink coffee out of your favorite mug and eat your customary breakfast cereal. You put on the jacket you always wear and unconsciously zip it up.

Next, you automatically drive to work along your accustomed, convenient route. At work you do the familiar things that you have memorized how to do so well. You see the same people, who push your same emotional buttons, which causes you to think the same thoughts about those people and your work and your life.

Later, you hurry up and go home, so you can hurry up and eat, so you can hurry up and watch your favorite TV show, so you can hurry up and go to bed, so you can hurry up and do it all over again. Has your brain changed at all that day?

W h y a re y o u s e c re t l y e x p e c t i n g something different to show up in your life, when you think the same thoughts, perform the same actions, and experience the same emotions every single day? Isn’t that the definition of insanity? All of us have fallen

prey to this type of limited life, one time or another. By now, you understand the reason why.

In the preceding example, it is safe to say that you’re reproducing the same level of m i n d , e v e r y d a y.

And if the

quantum world shows that t h e e n v i ro n m e n t i s a n extension of your mind (and that mind and matter are one),

then as long as your mind remains

the same, your life will stay “status quo.”

Thus, if your environment remains the same and you react by thinking in the same way, then according to the quantum model of reality, shouldn’t you create more of the same? Think of it this way: input remains the same, so the output has to remain the same. How, then, can you ever create anything new?

Hardwired to Hard Times There is another possible consequence that I should mention, if you keep firing the same neural patterns by living your life the same way each day. Every time you respond to your familiar reality by re-creating the same mind (that is, turning on the same nerve cells to make the brain work in the same way), you “hardwire” your brain to match the customary conditions in your personal reality, be they good or bad.

There is a principle in neuroscience called Hebbian's Law. It basically states that

very specific mental signature. This signature is called your personality.

“nerve cells that fire together, wire together.” Hebb’s credo demonstrates that if

How You Form the Habit of

you repeatedly activate the same nerve cells, then each time they turn on, it will be easier for them to fire in unison again. Eventually those neurons will develop a long-term relationship.1

So when I use the word hardwired, it means that clusters of neurons have fired so many times in the same ways that they have organized themselves into specific patterns with long-lasting connections. The more these networks of neurons fire, the more they wire into static routes of activity. In time, whatever the oft-repeated thought, behavior, or feeling is, it will become an automatic, unconscious habit. When your environment is influencing your mind to that extent, your habitat becomes your habit. So if you keep thinking the same thoughts, doing the same things, and feeling the same emotions, you will begin to hardwire your brain into a finite pattern that is the direct reflection of your finite reality. Consequently, it will become easier and more natural for you to reproduce the same mind on a moment-to-moment basis.

This innocent response cycle causes your brain and then your mind to reinforce even further the particular reality that is your external world. The more you fire the same circuits by reacting to your external life, the more you’ll wire your brain to be equal to your personal world. You’ll become neurochemically attached to the conditions in your life. In time, you’ll begin to think “in the box,” because your brain will fire a finite set of circuits that then creates a

Being Yourself As an effect of this neural habituation, the two realities of the inner mind and the outer world seem to become almost inseparable. For instance, if you can never stop thinking about your problems, then your mind and your life will merge together as one. The objective world is now colored by the perceptions of your subjective mind, and thus reality continuously conforms. You become lost in the illusion of the dream.

You could call this a rut, and we all fall into them, but it goes much deeper than that: not just your actions, but also your attitudes and your feelings become repetitive. You have formed the habit of being yourself by becoming, in a sense, enslaved to your environment. Your thinking has become equal to the conditions in your life, and thus you, as the quantum observer, are creating a mind that only reaffirms those circumstances into your specific reality. All you are doing is reacting to your external, known, unchanging world.

In a very real way, you have become an effect of circumstances outside of yourself. You have allowed yourself to give up control of your destiny. Unlike Bill Murray’s character in the movie Groundhog Day, you’re not even fighting against the ceaseless monotony of what you are like and what your life has become. Worse, you aren’t the victim of some mysterious and unseen force that has placed you in this repetitive loop—you are the creator of that loop. The good news is that since you created this loop, you can choose to end it. The quantum model of reality tells us that to change our lives, we must fundamentally change the ways we think, act, and feel. We must change our state of being. Because how we think, feel, and behave is, in essence, our personality, it is our personality that creates our personal reality. So to create a new personal reality, a new life, we must create a new personality; we must become someone else.

To change, then, is to think and a ct g re a t e r th a n o u r p re sent circumstances, greater than our environment.

Greatness Is Holding Fast to a Dream, Independent of the Environment Before I begin to explore the ways in which you can think greater than your environment and to thus break the habit of

being yourself, I want to remind you of something.

It is possible to think greater than your present reality, and history books are filled with people who have done so, men and women such as Martin Luther King, Jr., William Wallace, Marie Curie, Mahatma Gandhi, Thomas Edison, and Joan of Arc. Every one of these individuals had a concept in his or her mind of a future reality that existed as a potential in the quantum field. This vision was alive in an inner world of possibilities beyond the senses, and in time, each of these people made those ideas a reality.

As a common thread, they all had a dream, vision, or objective that was much larger than they were. They all believed in a future destiny that was so real in their minds that they began to live as if that dream were already happening. They couldn’t see, hear, taste, smell, or feel it, but they were so possessed by their dream that they acted in a way that corresponded to this potential reality ahead of time. In other words, they behaved as if what they envisioned was already a reality.

For example, the imperialist dictums that had India under colonial rule in the early 1900s were demoralizing to Indians. Despite that, Gandhi believed in a reality that wasn’t yet present in his people’s lives. He wholeheartedly endorsed the concepts of equality, freedom, and nonviolence with undying conviction.

Dr. Joe Dispenza

When our behaviors match our intentions, when our actions are equal to our thoughts, when our minds and our bodies are working together, when our words and our deeds are aligned . . . there is an immense power behind any individual.

Even though Gandhi endorsed liberty for all, the reality of tyranny and British control at that time was quite different. The conventional beliefs of that era were in contrast to his hopes and aspirations. Although the experience of liberty was not a reality while he was initially engaged in changing India, he did not let outward evidence of adversity sway him to give up this ideal. For a long time, much of the feedback from the external world didn’t show Gandhi that he was making a difference. But seldom did he allow the conditions in his environment to control his way of being. He believed in a future that he could not yet see or experience with his senses, but which was so alive in his mind that he could not live any other way. He embraced a new future life while physically living his present life. He understood that the way he was thinking, acting, and feeling would change the current conditions in his environment. And eventually, reality began to change as a result of his efforts. When our behaviors match our intentions, when our actions are equal to our thoughts, when our minds and our bodies are working together, when our words and our deeds are aligned . . . there is an immense power behind any individual. ......

The Cycles of Time and the impending end of the Kali Yuga in 2025 The ancients viewed time as a cyclical phenomenon; as a repeating waveform, with ascending and descending phases, which follow each other in an unbroken sequence for eternity. This pattern repeats itself from the smallest cycles of time to the largest. We can see this in the cycles of day and night where the intensity of sunlight progressively increases from 12 am to 12 pm and then gradually decreases. It is reflected in the waxing and waning of the moon in a complete lunar month of roughly 29 days. In the cycle of the seasons too, we can see that the period of daylight gradually increases from winter to summer for a period of roughly 12 lunar hemicycles (i.e. the time taken from New Moon to Full Moon and vice versa), and then decreases from summer to winter for a period of another 12 lunar hemicycles. There is another cycle of time known as the

Yuga Cycle or the Cycle of the World Ages, which was known to nearly thirty ancient cultures as pointed out by Giorgio de Santillana, the professor of the history of science at MIT. The Yuga Cycle is of 12,000 years durations and comprised of four Yugas or World Ages â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Golden Age (Satya Yuga), Silver Age (Treta Yuga), Bronze Age (Dwapara Yuga) and Iron Age (Kali Yuga). As humanity moves from the Satya Yuga to the Kali Yuga, the level of virtue and human capabilities gradually decrease, and reaches its nadir in the Kali Yuga, the age of darkness, in which we currently find ourselves.

By Bibhu Dev Misra

Many ancient cultures also believed that the Yuga Cycle is also comprised of ascending and descending cycles. Hence, after we complete a 12,000 year descending cycle from Satya Yuga -> Kali Yuga, the sequence reverses itself, and an ascending cycle of 12,000 years begins which goes from Kali Yuga -> Satya Yuga. This was first stated by Sri Yukteswar in his book The Holy Science (1894). Jean-Pierre Vernant, who is a highly acclaimed specialist in ancient Greek culture, also believes that the succession of ages is cyclical and the sequence reverse itself after the Iron Age, as per the Greek poet Hesiodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s account in the Works and Days.1 This idea is still prevalent among the Jains of India, who are one of the oldest religious sects of the country. The Jains believe that a complete Time Cycle (Kalachakra) has a progressive half (Utsarpini), when there is a gradual increase in knowledge, happiness, health, ethics, and spirituality, and a regressive half (Avasarpini), when there is a gradual reduction in these qualities. Hence, we do not

but follow a gradual upward trajectory of increasing prosperity and virtue. transition directly from the Iron Age to the Golden Age,

Time is, therefore, a fractal

where-in the

smaller cycles reflect the same waveform pattern of ascending and descending phases that are present in the larger cycles. Although fractal geometric patterns are readily visible in nature, the fractal nature of time is less obvious. However, the ancient were acutely aware of this phenomenon.

In a recent essay titled “The End of the Kali Yuga in 2025: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Yuga Cycle”, I have explored the Yuga Cycle phenomenon in detail and have arrived at some very interesting conclusions which can alter the way we look at our pre-history. My research has revealed that originally, the Yuga Cycle of 12,000 years duration was comprised of four Yugas of equal duration of 3000 years each. Many famous astronomers of ancient India, such Aryabhatta, Paulisa, Srishena, Vishnucandra etc. held this belief, as can be ascertained from the accounts of the 11th century medieval scholar Al-Beruni.2 The Yuga Cycle was tracked using the Saptarshi Calendar of ancient India which was used extensively during the Maurya period in the 4th century BC. The Saptarsi Calendar had a cycle of 2,700 years; it is said that the Great Bear constellation (Ursa Major), which represents the Saptarshi (the “Seven Sages”), stays for 100 years in each of the 27 “Nakshatras” (lunar asterisms) which adds up to a cycle of 2,700 years. The remaining 300 years out of the total Yuga duration of 3,000 years represents the “transitional period”, before the qualities of the subsequent Yuga are fully manifested. The total duration

of the Yuga Cycle, excluding the transitional periods, is equal to

(2700*4) i.e. 10,800 years, which is same as the duration of the “Great Year of Heraclitus” in the Hellenic tradition! It is agreed by historians that the Saptarsi Calendar that was in use during the Maurya period in the 4th century BC, started in 6676 BC.3 The testimony of the Greek and Roman historians, Pliny and Arrian, also show that the Indians counted their kings from an ancient monarch whose reign had ended at c.6776 BC and who corresponded to the Greek Dionysus or Roman Bacchus.4 The renowned Orientalist Sir William Jones had inferred that Dionysus or Bacchus was none other than the famous Indian monarch Rama.5 Now, as per Indian tradition, Rama had lived towards the end of the Treta Yuga, and the Dwapara Yuga had started soon after his demise. This implies that the 6676 BC date for the beginning of the Saptarsi Calendar, which is a 100 years after Dionysus i.e. Rama, indicates the beginning of the Dwapara Yuga in the descending cycle. Using this date as the anchor point and the Saptarsi Calendar as the basis for the Yuga Cycle durations (i.e. Yuga duration of 2,700 years, with transitional periods of 300 years), the entire timeline of the Yuga Cycle gets unraveled as shown here:

Painting of Rama.





Fig 2: Yuga Cycle Timeline

The timeline indicates that the ascending Kali Yuga, which is the current

epoch in which we are living, is about to end in 2025 CE, and we are fast approaching the transition point. The ancient texts assert that the transitional periods between the Yugas are always accompanied by a worldwide collapse of civilizations and severe environmental catastrophes. I have shown in my essay that this fact is also reflected in the archaeological and historical records.

Almost like clockwork, every 2,700 years, our planet is impacted by a series of cataclysmic events for a period of a few hundred years, which brings about a total or near total collapse of civilizations. At the end of the Golden Age, there was a cometary impact in 9703 BC, which ended the last ice-age, and caused a Global Flood which is mentioned in the flood accounts of many ancient cultures. The Treta Yuga (Silver Age) was followed by a catastrophic flooding of the Black Sea at c.6700 BC, along with enormous earthquakes and glacial outburst flooding all over the world. At the end of the Dwapara Yuga (Bronze Age) at 3900 BC, there was an environmental phenomenon called 5.9 kilo-year event, which caused a severe aridification of the Sahara, and a rapid period of intense, worldwide flooding known as the Flandrian Transgression. The most recent transition took place from the descending Kali Yuga to the ascending Kali Yuga in c. 976-676 BC which overlaps with the period known in history as the “Greek Dark Ages” when civilizations across the world – Greece, Egypt, Hittites, Indus Valley, Olmecs etc. – collapsed due to a series of environmental hazards, whose exact nature remains a mystery. A great deal of ancient wisdom, knowledge of the scriptures, sciences and the arts was forgotten during this episode. Possibly in response to this grave social crisis, a number of philosophers and prophets appeared at this time, trying to re-discover the lost wisdom, and spread it amongst the ignorant masses. Among them were Buddha (623 BC), Pythagoras (570 BC), Zoroaster (600 BC), and Mahavir Jain (599 BC). However, humanity never really recovered completely from this catastrophe. The ascending Kali Yuga has, consequently, been characterized by a highly materialistic worldview, accompanied by a frightening level of moral, ethical and spiritual bankruptcy.

In recent years, many independent historians and researchers have realized that the concept of a Yuga Cycle is a far better descriptor of ancient history, than the model of linear progress favored by mainstream historians. Egyptologist John Anthony West mentions in his article “Consider the Kali Yuga” that: “Since Egypt's Old Kingdom, up until very recently…civilization has been going down, not up; simple as that. We can follow that degenerative process physically in Egypt; it is written into the stones and it is unmistakable. The same tale is told in the mythologies and legends of virtually all other societies and civilizations the world over...Progress does not go in a straight line from primitive ancestors to smart old us with our bobblehead dolls and weapons of mass destruction; our traffic jams and our polluted seas, skies and lands. There is another, and far more realistic, way to view history. Plato talked about a cycle of Ages: Golden, Silver, Bronze and Iron (or Dark) Age; a cycle, a wave form - not a straight line. A similar understanding is reflected by virtually all other ancient accounts. The best known, and by far the most elaborately developed of these systems, is the Hindu, with its Yuga Cycle, which corresponds to the Platonic idea of four definable Ages.”6 The ascending Kali Yuga is now coming to an end in 2025 after a period of 2700 years. This will be followed by a transitional period of 300 years, leading to the full manifestation of the next Yuga – the ascending Dwapara. The Sanskrit text Brahmavaivarta Purana describes a dialogue between Lord Krishna and the Goddess Ganges. Here, Krishna says that after 5,000 years of Kali Yuga there will be a dawn of a new Golden Age which will last for 10,000 years (Text 50, 59). This can be immediately understood in the context of the Yuga Cycle timeline described here. We are now ending the Kali Yuga, nearly 5,700 years since its beginning in 3676 BC. And the end of the Kali Yuga will be followed by three more Yugas spanning 9,000 years, before the ascending cycle ends. The end of the Kali Yuga will inevitably be followed by cataclysmic earth changes and civilization collapses, as is characteristic of the transitional periods. The transition from the Kali to the Dwapara is a movement from darkness to light, and is equivalent to the seasonal change from winter to spring; except that this change takes place only once in a complete Yuga Cycle of 24,000 years, and therefore its effects will be magnified many times more.

Plato 424/423 BC– 348/347 BC

Ages of Man Yuga

Anselm Feuerbach (1829–1880)

The onset of spring in the seasonal cycle is typically accompanied by various psychological, physical and environmental ill-effects such as spring fever (characterized by a state of low energy and weariness, irritability, headches etc.), allergies, flooding etc. Similar effects may be expected during the Yuga Cycle transition as well. Many people are already being impacted the physical and psychological effects of the shift. In addition, the current upswing in solar and tectonic activities, and the increased incidence of extreme weather phenomena, seems to indicate that we are slowly entering into a period of volatile earth changes.

This is the time that we once again need to make a concerted effort

For that to happen there needs to be a convergence of ideas and information from across the globe. For many thousands of to re-discover the lost wisdom of the ancients.

years, humanity had been a single family, with a shared cosmic vision, practicing similar rituals and traditions, respecting the rich cultural diversity of our planet, and living in close harmony with nature. We have moved far away from this state of balance. As we move closer to the transition point, we need to dig deep into our cellular memory banks to retrieve the past.

to be the mantra for the future, which will enable us to deal with the impending cataclysms, and adjust to the radically different vibrations of the coming epoch.

"Bucky Fuller thought big, Arthur C. Clarke thinks big, but Cliff Pickover outdoes them both." -- WIRED

Gaia-metry, or geo-metry, is the measure of the Earth. In ancient times, the correct estimation of the physical properties of the host planet was paramount to the success of the temple. As with other planets, the Earth was seen as an expression of super-physical consciousness, the manifestation of spirit and of God: a living organism.â&#x20AC;¨

Since the temples were designed as analogs of universal principles, designing them according to the same geometric proportions bound in the planet was to imbue the temple with soul. And so, just like the Earth, the temple was also regarded as a living organism.

Mysterium Cosmographicum

The ancients figured out that the apparently physical world was constructed from atoms and molecules, and that each and every one was governed by patterns of order that favoured balanced geometric relationships, a view now held by modern physics.

Furthermore, by studying the heavens, and the orbits of p l a n e t s i n p a r t i c u l a r, t h e ancients deduced that each mean orbit related one to another in orderly geometric relationships.

Since the planets were

considered to be living bodies or akousmata (“resonant beings”) they were attributed the titles of Gods. And from that point, geometry became sacred. Therefore, the geometry of life– biogeometry– was incorporated into the fabric of temples the world over. Much of it is occult (‘hidden from the eye’), and yet its presence can be felt by the atoms and molecules of the human body which are built on identical geometric platforms.
 To enter an ancient temple is to enter oneself is to know thy Self.

Freddy Silva

Some of the most celebrated uses of geometry are found in those deceptively simple buildings, the pyramids of Egypt. The Great Pyramid at Giza incorporates a most unusual slope angle of approximately 51.49º, which neatly references that most unusual of regular geometric figures, the seven-pointed heptagon. Unlike all other regular geometric figures, the heptagon is the only one whose angles cannot bisect a circle to a whole number, and so it has traditionally been associated with sound, the unknowable, and the seeking of wisdom. It has also been described as the geometry of the soul.

The enigmatic Bent Pyramid at Dashur, often portrayed by orthodox archeologists as ‘a mistake’, is equally encoded with an invisible geometry, and an important one at that. When unfolded like the petal of a flower, the top slope angle reveals a pentagon, the bottom slope a hexagon.

This combination of geometries is inherent in the design of the crystalline structure of human DNA. Since biogeometry is an eddy of energy, or a material expression of consciousness, the energy field of a person walking into the Bent Pyramid is influenced by the actions taking place within that geometric framework.

Chartres cathedral

Top Photo - The iron girder structure (known as the charpente de fer supporting the roof of Chartres Cathedral (view from western end)

The same effects are true in Gothic cathedrals and their complex geometry, Chartres being one of the finest examples. Russian scientists monitoring EEG brainwave patterns inside the nave of Chartres discovered that the building’s special harmonics have a noticeable affect on peoples’ states of awareness. When combined with Gregorian chant—the kind of music these churches were designed to amplify—people’s brainwaves went up as much as 4000% above normal waking state.

At Stonehenge, the relatively simple series of rings and horseshoe alignments that typify the world’s most famous stone circle belie the fact that the positioning of its stones is governed by a complex geometric blueprint. In fact, it may be the only temple in the world that incorporates multiple sacred geometries: triangular, square, pentagonal, hexagonal, and heptagonal.
 Stonehenge is the classic example of an organic temple, built and expanded over the course of some 4000 years, serving to amplify the specific needs and subtle energy requirements of the era. Consequently, only parts of the temple were in use at any given ceremony: adepts would enter the temple with a specific purpose, and consciously ‘awaken’ only those geometries that served the intent of the moment.
 It is also worth noting that, when the temple is not in use or being misused, its subtle energy field shuts down. This is particularly so when thousands of tourists and their clicking cameras and camcorders are present, blissfully unaware of the true purpose of the site. Without the single-minded intent and respect, all that stands in front of them is nothing more than a bunch of upright, inanimate rocks.
 But thanks to a common framework in biogeometry, the energy exchange between the stone temple and the human temple only takes place whenever there is sympathetic resonance between the two, and when the intent of the participants matches that of the temple with which they are interacting.

In our era, the new geometric temples are the enigmatic crop circles. Despite the vast amounts of money spent by special interest groups in debunking the subject, crop circles have been scientifically validated as a genuine phenomenon, and that it is intelligently guided.

 Like pyramids and Gothic cathedrals, genuine crop circles share the same occult geometric framework, and quite often the shape one sees in the flattened crop conceals a far different geometry. As with the Bent Pyramid, the crop circles favour the use of pentagonal and hexagonal geometry, and so it is not surprising that hundreds of documented cases describe alterations of awareness in people who interact with the designs, as well as healings. Indeed, sacred sites around the world share the same rich tradition.
 Chartres cathedral

It seems rather timely that, just as the sacred sites are experiencing a sudden resurgence in interest, so the crop circles have sprouted in 29 countries. And wherever they manifest—from the fields of southern Britain to the prairies of Alberta and the rice paddies of Japan—they always do so beside ancient sacred sites.

The Mandelbrot set

- someone has called it the thumbprint of God - is one of

the most beautiful and remarkable discoveries in the entire history of mathematics. With Arthur C. Clarke as narrator and interviews with a number of notable mathematicians, including BenoĂŽt Mandelbrot, this program graphically illustrates how simple formulas can lead to complicated results: it explains the set, what it means, its internal consistency, and the revolutions in thought resulting from its discovery. Asked if the real universe goes on forever, Stephen Hawking defines its limit of smallness; the Mandelbrot set, on the other hand, may go on forever.

God as Architect/Builder/Geometer/Craftsman/Mid-13th C./Codex Vindobonensis

This image of Christ is from the Mid-13th century. How is it that an artist of that era had the wisdom to depict the fractal formula of life?

The universal construct, Has the “Thumbprint of God”, It’s a fractal expression, The heart its divine dimension, Revealing God’s loving expression.

Through its logarithmic spiral, Our self-similar patterns connect, By an ethereal cord, Our hearts align, In an expanding void, In a quantum sea of bliss.

This loving hoop, Is a feedback loop, You are a system within itself, You are God’s outward expression, Totally dynamic, magnetic and electric. You are his/her lover, When souls connect. That is the art of you, It is at the heart of you, It is encoded in you, As your deepest desire, For love to be expressed.

Love is golden, The perfect phi ratio, So when your heart and mind,

Are in perfect sync, This cascading wave, Has a coherent beat.

Two chambers in the heart, Two sides in the brain, Male and female, Intelligence and intuition, Matter and motion, Equally yoked, Heaven's spheres are embraced.

Swirling and whirling, In the shape of a heart, The Sufi mystic, Dances in a trance, Spiraling and connecting To the heavens and the heart.

This is God’s essence, The frequency of love. It keeps you in a spin, Longing for this higher dimension. This equation is “Gods Thumbprint”, Your individual expression, And his/her all inspiring LOVE. Karen Elkins
