Terence McKenna



Novelty theory and Time Wave Zero Point

See 2012 phenomena
One of McKenna's ideas is known as novelty theory. It predicts the ebb and flow of novelty in the universe as an inherent quality of time. McKenna developed the theory in the mid-1970s after his experiences in the Amazon at La Chorrera led him to closely study the King Wen sequence of the I-Ching. Novelty theory involves ontology, extropy, and eschatology.

The theory proposes that the universe is an engine designed for the production and conservation of novelty. Novelty, in this context, can be thought of as newness, or extropy (a term coined by Max More meaning the opposite of entropy). According to McKenna, when novelty is graphed over time, a fractal waveform known as "timewave zero" or simply the "timewave" results. The graph shows at what time periods, but never at what locations, novelty increases or decreases and is supposed to represent a model of history's most important events.
Software for viewing Time Wave Zero was written by R.J. Pease, but was replaced by a Fortran version which appears in The Invisible Landscape.
The algorithm has also been extrapolated to be a model for future events. McKenna admitted to the expectation of a "singularity of novelty", and that he and his colleagues projected into the future to find when this singularity (runaway "newness" or extropy) could occur. Millenarians give more credence to Novelty theory as a way to predict the future (especially regarding 2012) than McKenna himself. The graph of extropy had many enormous fluctuations over the last 25,000 years, but it hits an asymptote in the middle of November, 2012. After his discovery of other doomsday theories that would take place on exactly December 21, 2012, he simply bumped up the date of "doomsday".[21] This statement is contested, however, by McKenna's own mouth when during a lecture he said,






An astonishing thing about the date I arrived at, by this method is that it's the same date that the Mayan civilization appointed for the end of its calendar. In all eternity ... You know, you may choose not to believe that I didn't know this when I made this prediction. But I didn't, know it! I didn't. Yet I chose not the month, not the same year - the same day, month and year.[22]

In other words, entropy (or habituation) no longer exists after that date. It is impossible to define that state. This is also the date on which the Mayan long calendar ends one cycle through the zodiac signs, then it begins a new 26,000 year cycle through the next era, or the Age of Peace. The technological singularity concept parallels this, only at a date roughly three decades later.
Author Steve Wilson has stated that his reluctance to accept this technological endpoint was shattered when reading of the Adam robot experiment's success. Since endpoint theory needs the creation of machines that can design and program other machines for the final stages to be possible (otherwise the slowness of human beings will make it impossible for such technological novelty to be achieved), this experiment is a major step towards practical artificial intelligence.



Terence McKenna's Time Wave Theory

by Dan Eden for Viewzone

I have a very good friend named Johnny who lives in Patagonia, one of the safest places on the planet. He often sends me ideas for stories on viewzone. A while back he tried to get me interested in something called the "Time Wave Theory." My initial reaction was to pass on the story. A theory about time? Einstein couldn't define what time is (or was, or will be).



The Timewave theory, put forth by Terence McKenna [right], is further complicated by the fact that he is dead, and that much of what he learned about the theory is alleged to have come to him during shamanic visionary states while he was living in the Amazon jungle. Hmmm.


But The Timewave Theory is perhaps the hottest topic on the internet today. Many reputable scientists and physicists have embraced it. It has broken the barriers between esoteric philosophy and pragmaticism. And, as you will see, its discovery is predicted within the theory itself.


Lots of trendy websites have given summaries of McKenna's theories, especially as they relate to 2012, but hardly anyone has explained the theory in a logical way. Since that is my raison d'etre here on viewzone, I will attempt to do this now.


The biography of Terence McKenna is fascinating and certainly worth exploring, but I will leave that for later. Our story begins in China about 4000 years ago with a phenomenon called the I-Ching.


The I-Ching

The Chinese people are great at understanding abstractions. Their writing consists of symbols that suggest an idea or concept rather than phonetic sounds, like English. With hundreds of different dialects spoken in China, often people living in a neighboring village cannot understand the spoken language of their countrymen. Although the sounds and phonetics may vary, the written Chinese symbols are understood by everyone. Why is this important?

The I-Ching is a system for what the Western mind would call "fortune telling." But instead of being able to tell you who you will marry, when you will die or next week's lottery numbers, the I-Ching predicts the pattern of events which will govern and shape your destiny. It's an abstract vignette of a universal influence for a specific block of time.


In the I-Ching, there are patterns which are composed of six possibilities, represented by either a broken line (yin) or a solid line (yang). By simple mathematics it is easy to understand that two possible patterns, expressed in a matrix of six (called a hexagram), yield a possibility of exactly 64 different hexagrams.


Typically, if you are in Asia and engage the I-Ching, you will toss a coin six times and record the heads or tails (yin or yang) and arrive at one of these 64 hexagrams. By referencing the Book of I-Ching, you will be able to ascertain the flow of events that governs your present and future life. The results will not be specific -- it's more of a kind of weather report describing the outcome of your actions.


So why is this important to the Timewave Theory? It's not, really. The I-Ching is a kind of parlor game that evolved from something deeper and more significant. The true basis of the I-Ching was understood many thousands of years ago and was lost in centuries of ignorance and political upheaval -- that is until Terence McKenna accidentally stumbled upon it in the 1970s.


The hexagrams


Examining the King Wen I-Ching hexagrams, McKenna noticed an obvious pattern. The first hexagram contains six solid lines. Hexagram number two has six broken lines. Hexagrams 3 and 4 appear to be similar pairs that have been rotated 180 degrees. The same is true for most of the other hexagrams -- they are pairs in which the second hexagram has been rotated 180 degrees.


McKenna noticed that sometimes, when a hexagram was supposed to be rotated, the rotation would not change the configuration. An example of this can be seen in hexagram 27. It also is the case with seven other hexagrams (#1, 2, 28, 29, 30, 61 and 62). When this happens there is a different rule that applies. The following hexagram is exactly opposite -- the yins become yangs and visa versa.


McKenna then focused his attention on the number of lines that changed in each subsequent hexagram, moving from the first to the sixty-fourth. From hexagram 1 to 2 there were six changed lines, from hexagram 2 to 3 there were two, then four, and four again...


He plotted these changes on a graph and arrived at a unique pattern.



But he didn't make much sense out of this. He needed to understand why the I-Ching was made of six lines and why was it arranged in pairs that were rotated 180 degrees. The breakthrough came when he noticed that the extreme left and right of the graph contained a saw-tooth pattern. If he copied the graph, rotated it 180 degrees and superimposed it on the original graph it meshed perfectly "like the dove tail of a cabinet maker."


To incorporate the six lines, McKenna repeated this new graph six times and superimposed it on the single plot. To incorporate the phenomenon of "pairs" of hexagrams, he repeated the pattern two times and superimposed it on the other two graphs. Eventually he arrived at a complex shape containing all three graphs. But what did this mean?



With a computer it was possible to combine the peaks and valleys and arrive at an average graph (see math at http://www.fractal-timewave.com/math_twz.htm), representing the change of the 64 hexagrams and, as McKenna believed, revealing the secret encoded in their original design. This graph has become known as the Timewave.

Confused?

It is difficult for a Western mind to comprehend abstracts. In our everyday lives we ignore things that don't have immediate relevance, yet we do have many abstracts that we take for granted. Good and evil, light and darkness, love and hate -- these are opposite abstracts that we would have difficulty describing without using both words in the pair. Good is the absence of evil, darkness is the absence of light. Even in physics we have matter and anti-matter, positive and negative charges...


In Asian Taoism philosophy the concept of opposing phenomena is represented by the Yin and Yang. Both are always present in everything, yet the amount of influence of each varies over time.



The nature of yin-yang



In Taoist philosophy, yin and yang arise together from an initial quiescence or emptiness (wuji, sometimes symbolized by an empty circle), and continue moving in tandem until quiescence is reached again. For instance, dropping a stone in a calm pool of water will simultaneously raise waves and lower troughs between them, and this alternation of high and low points in the water will radiate outward until the movement dissipates and the pool is calm once more. Yin–yang, thus, are always opposite and equal qualities. Further, whenever one quality reaches its peak it will naturally begin to transform into the opposite quality: grain that reaches its full height in summer (fully yang) will produce seeds and die back in winter (fully yin) in an endless cycle.


It is impossible to talk about yin or yang without some reference to the opposite, since yin–yang are bound together as parts of a mutual whole. A race with only men or only women would disappear in a single generation; but men and women together create new generations that allow the race they mutually create (and mutually come from) to survive. The interaction of the two gives birth to things. Yin and yang transform each other: like an undertow in the ocean, every advance is complemented by a retreat, and every rise transforms into a fall. Thus, a seed will sprout from the earth and grow upwards towards the sky - an intrinsically yang movement. Then when it reaches its full potential height it will descend.

The individual lines of the I-Ching are made up of both Yin (broken lines) and Yang (solid lines). The concept of change and balance is inherent in the hexagrams. McKenna understood that his final graph must contain the "fingerprint" of change contained in time itself.


The peaks represent the abstraction of "stasis" or habitual stability, while the valleys represent novelty or change.


Fractals anyone?


A fractal is a shape produced by plotting mathematical data which repeats whether viewed on a macro or micro scale. McKenna realized that his Time Wave had this special characteristic. The entire graph, representing the beginning and end of time, can be seen duplicated when one looks at a smaller span of time.


In the example above the same pattern can be seen for plotting two differnt eras. The bottom plot spans almost 150 years while the top plot spans about 1.5 years.


The drama of novelty and habit plays out, according to the Timewave, in a specific and orderly pattern. Because this pattern is a fractal, the ups and downs of the timewave apply equally to a long epoch, like the emergence of life on our panet, and a short epoch, like the lifetime of an individual.

McKenna liked to joke about this phenomenon in his lectures. He would use the example of the fall of the Roman Empire, saying that it followed the same pattern -- habit and novelty -- as when he vacuumed his living room.

Understanding this "fractal" concept makes it easier to understand why the I-Ching was used to predict the outcome of current events in Chinese philosophy. If one could learn where on the Timewave they were then they could infer whether novelty or habit were in play.

Time compression

As the Timewave pattern moves through time, the fractals become smaller and smaller. What took eons of time to complete next takes only thousands of years, then hundreds, then days, minutes, seconds. As we approach the zero point on the grand Timewave, waves of novelty and habit change more rapidly. This can appear chaotic to our sense of time but it is because the very pattern of time IS speeding up.

Indeed the knowledge and understanding that we have accomplished in the last hundred years of civilization far surpasses the achievements of many thousands of years before. It is not so surprising then that the Timewave theory should be discovered, or perhaps re-discovered, at this fast paced era near the end of time.

What is novelty?

Novelty is characterized by increased activity and options. For humans, this usually follows some great discovery or event which changes our behavior. Imagine an ant's nest where workers go about their daily routine of foraging for food. All of a sudden a sugar cube is dropped on the ant mound and suddenly the behavior of the nest changes to take advantage of this new opportunity. If the discovery is significant enough the ant colony may have enough food for many weeks, thereby ushering in a period of stability and wellbeing. Novelty ushers in stability and visa versa.

Novelty and stability may appear opposite but they are always present in time. The Timewave plots the move from one direction to the other. Moving up indicates a gradual increase in stability and organization while a downward curve shows that some new factors are influencing change. It's a continuous ebb and flow.

I thought it would be helpful to take a look at the Timewave for the past two decades.
The above timewave begins on February 1992 and ends on December 21, 2012. Yes, it's "doomsday" but we'll talk about that later. I have marked some events that happened close to the significant turning points -- either just before a downward or upward curve. I will let you decide if these events validate their position on the graph.

Doomsday

When he finally arrived at the shape of the Timewave, McKenna then had to superimpose it on historical events. He placed the beginning of the wave at the theoretical beginning of the universe, more than 15 billion years ago. Here, the Timewave graph began at zero and spiked up to reach a high degree of organization. As he plotted the wave he realized that it eventually reached zero at the end. Further, this end was in our present era!


The last harmonic of the wave has a duration of 67.29 years, marked again by some dramatic event at the onset of the pattern. At first McKenna placed this event with the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. This worked out to the graph reaching zero in mid-November of 2012. Later, when he learned of the end date of the Mayan calendar, he adjusted the wave to coincide with this time.


According to the Timewave theory, on December 21, 2012 we will be in the unique position in time where we will experience maximum novelty -- maximum potential for change. Not since the birth of our universe has this happened. What will follow this date is something that we cannot imagine. The next day, if time recycles, will usher in incredible order and organization. Will we be part of this?

Terence McKenna, November 16, 1949 to April 3, 2000


Following the death of his mother in 1971, Terence, his brother Dennis, and three friends traveled to the Colombian Amazon in search of oo-koo-he, a plant preparation containing DMT. Instead of oo-koo-he they found various forms of ayahuasca and gigantic psilocybe cubensis which became the new focus of the expedition. In La Chorrera, at the urging of his brother, he allowed himself to be the subject of a psychedelic experiment which he claimed put him in contact with Logos: an informative, divine voice he believed was universal to visionary religious experience. The revelations of this voice, and his brother's peculiar experience during the experiment, prompted him to explore the structure of an early form of the I Ching, which led to his "Novelty Theory". These ideas were explored extensively by Terence and Dennis in their 1975 book The Invisible Landscape - Mind Hallucinogens and The I Ching.


In the early 1980s, McKenna began to speak publicly on the topic of psychedelic drugs, lecturing extensively and conducting weekend workshops. Timothy Leary once introduced him as "one of the five or six most important people on the planet".

"It's clearly a crisis of two things: of consciousness and conditioning. These are the two things that the psychedelics attack. We have the technological power, the engineering skills to save our planet, to cure disease, to feed the hungry, to end war; But we lack the intellectual vision, the ability to change our minds. We must decondition ourselves from 10,000 years of bad behavior. And, it's not easy." -- Terence McKenna, This World...and Its Double

He soon became a fixture of popular counterculture, and his popularity continued to grow, culminating in the early to mid 1990s with the publication of several books such as True Hallucinations (which relates the tale of his 1971 experience at La Chorrera), Food of the Gods and The Archaic Revival. He became a popular personality in the psychedelic rave/dance scene of the early 1990s, with frequent spoken word performances at raves and contributions to psychedelic and goa trance albums by The Shamen, Spacetime Continuum, Alien Project, Capsula, Entheogenic, Zuvuya, Shpongle, and Shakti Twins. His speeches were (and continue to be) sampled by many others. In 1994 he appeared as a speaker at the Starwood Festival, which was documented in the book Tripping by Charles Hayes (his lectures were produced on both cassette tape and CD).

McKenna was a contemporary and colleague of chaos mathematician Ralph Abraham and biologist Rupert Sheldrake (creator of the theory of "morphogenetic fields", not to be confused with the mainstream usage of the same term), and conducted several public debates known as trialogues with them, from the late 1980s up until his death. Books which contained transcriptions of some of these events were published. He was also a friend and associate of Ralph Metzner, Nicole Maxwell, and Riane Eisler, participating in joint workshops and symposia with them. He was a personal friend of Tom Robbins, and influenced the thought of numerous scientists, writers, artists, and entertainers, including comedian Bill Hicks, whose routines concerning psychedelic drugs drew heavily from McKenna's works. He is also the inspiration for the Twin Peaks character Dr. Jacoby.

McKenna also co-founded Botanical Dimensions with Kathleen Harrison (ethnobotanist) (his colleague and wife of 17 years), a non-profit ethnobotanical preserve on the island of Hawaii, where he lived for many years before he died. Before moving to Hawaii permanently, McKenna split his time between Hawaii and a town called Occidental, located in the redwood-studded hills of Sonoma County, California, a town unique for its high concentration of artistic notables, including Tom Waits and Mickey Hart.
Of all his many accomplishments, Terence McKenna will be remembered for his discovery of the Timewave Novelty Theory and his unparalleled ability to describe this theory to others in a way that made it interesting, understandable and congruent with both physics and religion.

As physicists look deeper and further in to the infinity of quantum mechanics, McKenna's work on the structure of time is gaining more respect and application. While some conservative minds will condemn his use of mind-altering drugs, it is perhaps because of the other-worldly nature of these psychedelic experiences that the abstractions of time were revealed.

We can only wait and see.

Obama Administration U.S. Forces Can Assassinate Americans













On the evening of Jan. 27, 2010, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) spoke, in Baltimore City, before a capacity audience at Loyola University Maryland

President Obama has joined the Bush policy of using the war on terror to violate the rights of American citizens. The administration has acknowledged its continuing a Bush-era policy authorizing the killing of U.S. citizens abroad who are SUSPECTED of being a terrorist, in total violation of his Oath of Office to protect the Constitution of the United States and the right of citizens to a trial when accused of a crime.

The act of assassination is obviously much worse than public outcries against unlawful detention or torture.
The confirmation came from Director National of Intelligence Dennis Blair in Congressional testimony last week. Blair said: Being a U.S. citizen will not spare an American from getting assassinated by military or intelligence operatives overseas if the individual is working with terrorists and planning to attack fellow Americans.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich said it is not much of a stretch, in that terrorist cells have been said to be working within the United States, to expect the administration to conduct these assassinations of citizens in our country. Furthermore it is also conceivable that anyone SUSPECTED of being or acting with a administration designated terrorist organization to be murdered while sleeping or taken from their home in the middle of the night and assassinated.

This is especially worry some considering the recent Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) report in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security. MIAC is part of the federal Fusion Center effort now underway around the country. See http://www.dhs.gov/files/programs/gc_...

The MIAC report specifically describes supporters of presidential candidates Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr as militia influenced terrorists and instructs the Missouri police to be on the lookout for supporters displaying bumper stickers and other paraphernalia associated with the Constitutional, Campaign for Liberty, and Libertarian parties.

The MIAC report does not concentrate on Muslim terrorists, but rather on the so-called militia movement and conflates it with supporters of legitimate Third Party candidates, Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, Bob Barr, the so-called patriot movement and other political activist organizations opposed to the North American Union and the New World Order.

Police are educated in the document that people who are anti-abortion, own gold, display an assortment of U.S. flags, or even those that talk about the film Zeitgeist, view the police as their enemy and conflates them with domestic terrorists like Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, Olympic bomber Eric Rudolph and other domestic militia groups who have been charged with plotting terrorist attacks. FOX News reports, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano called Fusion Centers the "centerpiece of state, local, federal intelligence-sharing" in the future.

Earth History of Nephilims (Giants) on the earth






Interesting video on the history of Nephilims (Giants) on the earth. There are many historical accounts of giants in ancient history (Picture from http://www.stevequayle.com/Giants/index2.html)



Genesis 6:1-4
,

1 Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.

3 And the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” 4 There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

Congressman Paul speaks on the floor about assassinations of Americans by their own government





"I am not posting this to put anyone in Fear,,,
I am just bring this to the LIGHT.
Now what you do,,, is up to you." ( Buddy Huggins )








Obama's assassinations of Americans

Posted: February 24, 2010
1:00 am Eastern
© 2010

On Sept. 14 in Somalia, Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan, a long-sought link between al-Qaida and its East African allies, was in a vehicle bombed by a helicopter flying from an American ship off the Somali coast. As Karen DeYoung and Joby Warrick reported in a front-page Washington Post story – "Under Obama, more targeted killings than captures in counterterrorism efforts" (Feb. 13) – another U.S. helicopter "set down long enough for troops to scoop up enough of (Nabhan's) remains for DNA verification."


That news story offered a telling consequence: "The opportunity to interrogate one of the most wanted U.S. terrorism targets was gone forever." And a senior military officer, careful not to give his name, lamented: "We wanted to take a prisoner. It was not a decision that we made."

That decision came from Obama, our commander in chief, who, as I've previously reported, has authorized in his first year more such assassinations than Bush and Cheney in their last years. The result, as the Washington Post noted, "has been dozens of targeted killings and no reports of high-value detentions."

After all, there can be no fierce arguments about whether a charred corpse should be tried in a federal civilian court or by a military commission. Some American citizens, believed to be highly connected to al-Qaida or its affiliates, are also on these "hit" lists. In Pakistan and Afghanistan, pilotless U.S. drone planes have perpetrated these assassinations.

These are highly classified operations, but thanks to the First Amendment, an increasing number of these summary executions have been revealed in the Washington Post and on the Internet. There have already been probing, through unanswered questions, from the ACLU, human-rights groups and other constitutionalists about this corollary damage to such an anchor of our rule of law as the separation of powers when the executive branch alone decides who shall die instantly rather than having been permitted time-consuming and costly due process of law. And there are no defense attorneys to raise objections, even when an American citizen is marked for oblivion.

Resistance to these terminal operations – which often inadvertently but effectively end the lives of innocent civilians – intensified in February when a high-ranking American official at last confirmed that targeted assassination is a legitimate American way of self-defense.

During a Feb. 3 hearing before the House Intelligence Committee, Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair testified that the U.S. intelligence community, when dealing with direct terrorist threats to the United States, does "take direct action against terrorists" (Washington Post, Feb. 4).

And "if we think that direct action will involve killing an American, we get specific permission to do that." Blair – sensitive to the Obama administration's delicate use of language in these matters – did not use the word "assassinations," but the message was lethal enough.


Glenn Greenwald, a former constitutional lawyer turned news analyst, avoids euphemisms. "Special permissions" without judicial authorization, says Greenwald, amounts to "basically giving the president the power to impose death sentences on his own citizens without any charges or trial" (Salon.com, Feb. 4).


Focusing on American targets, Ben Wizner, a staff attorney of the ACLU National Security Project, in a Feb. 4 press release emphasizes: "It is alarming to hear that the Obama administration is asserting that the president can authorize the assassination of Americans abroad, even if they are far from any battlefield and may have never taken up arms against the U.S., but have only been deemed to constitute an unspecified 'threat.'"

I would add that if the threat has indeed been specified, the deceased target will have had no chance to test its accuracy. Is this America?

Wizner continues with an especially pertinent point. On what basis in our rule of law or by congressional statute do Obama – or George W. Bush before him – justify these killings? Wizner explains:

"This is the most recent consequence of a troublingly over-broad interpretation of Congress' 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force. This sweeping interpretation envisions a war that knows no borders or definable time limits and targets an enemy that the government has refused to define in public. This policy is particularly troubling since it targets U.S. citizens, who retain their constitutional right to due process even when abroad."

Adds Jonathan Manes, legal fellow with the ACLU National Security Project: "While there is little doubt that a U.S. citizen fighting for an enemy army could lawfully be killed on the battlefield in the course of fighting, this policy goes far beyond the ordinary parameters of battlefield combat."

Does President Obama agree with George W. Bush's first attorney general, John Ashcroft, that America, along with the rest of the world, is the battlefield for extra-judicial action against terrorism suspects, including Americans? And the silent Obama avoids any responsibility for the growing number of innocent civilians killed by the insistently growing number of strikes by our pilotless drones.

Next week: Penetrating questions to the Obama administration in an ACLU Freedom of Information Act Request filed on Jan. 13. When will members of Congress also ask these questions? And how about we, the people, getting involved in finding out whether some of these killings committed in our name are – by our own laws and international treaties – actual war crimes? Where is our chief law enforcement officer, Attorney General Eric Holder, Republican leaders and the tea-party legions opposed to boundless big government?

EMERGENCE: Beyond 2012




When You're Creating, There's no Room for Fear to enter in.

David Alexander English, or DAE is an exceptional human being. He is like nobody I have ever met before and it was such an honour to have the opportunity to have some time to speak with him. I have included his story in this section about spiritual entrepreneurs although he would not identify himself as an entrepreneur. "...While i would consider myself basically a professional dreamer, as someone famous once said, the difference between a dreamer and a visionary is a dreamer dreams, and a visionary dreams and makes their dreams come true." He is a visionary. However, he is enterprising and successful, not because he is chasing success, but because he is true to his convictions. His autobiography is extraordinary, it is called THE UNPOLISHED MANUSCRIPT and goes well beyond the scope of this article and I would urge you to download a copy . It may just change the way that you think about things.

David Alexander English is an artist, poet, photographer, astrologer, writer, filmmaker, producer, world traveler, designer, creative genius, imagineer. He is deep and philosophical, warm and playful, creative and inspirational and someone you just want a bit more of. He has studied social theory, political economics, and history in a mainstream university, but the ways that he engages with all of these now is as far away from mainstream as you can get. He went to college to 'learn stuff' not to get a qualification and a job. In fact, he (like most of us) has never really liked working a job, as these always felt like a distraction from what he really wanted to do, explore, and be. Whilst the online world focuses on the Google Wave, DAE is gathering momentum for the 20th of December, Solstice Sunday, creating the next Global Wave/Pulse of Conscious Evolution, the next Conscious Evolution Day Global quiet Sunset Meditation Event. This will be the 8th of 10 such events in 2009, and there will be 18 in 2010. This is key to who he is, this is about a collective remembrance of who we really are and why it is we have come to Earth. Whilst entrepreneurs may talk about The Secret, The Law of Attraction or Attraction Marketing, DAE delves much deeper and explores stimulating the collective remembrance. Whilst entrepreneurs focus on wealth creation, he focuses on the evolution of consciousness, not just for himself, but for the whole species, the whole universe.

One of the interesting things about DAE is that he does a lot of his work in his dreams and sleep. He talks about sleep being a sacred thing and does not take kindly to it being interupted or disrespected! " ...i work best when i get at least 8 hours...i find i can then be more present in my waking state...a better person." DAE has chosen to be absolutely true to himself. He has been writing since 1979 (SOMEWHERE...); drawing since 1981(the BLUE MUSE cartoon series); painting since June 1987. Although in the Fall of 1987 he studied for a semester at the Museum School of the Museum of Fine Art, Boston, he considers himself primarily a self-taught fine artist. Since he started painting the summer he turned 30 he has completed over 1,400 acrylic-on-raw canvas works. "...and i still have them all...i used to try to sell the originals and was kind of put off by how folks would rave about how much they loved the work but wouldn't buy any...then i realized what a blessings, because they are a series that tells a story that is different every time you view them...they are all part of The Book of Mirrors...so the goal is to create a traveling exhibition and a permanent exhibition space for the whole body of work." He has been a self-employed artist since 1985. "...Now instead of trying to sell the originals anymore i sell reproductions in the form of prints, posters, cards, t-shirts, etc., on the low end; and giclee's as big as you want them, high quality digital reproductions on canvas or paper, and prints within LED lightbox technology on the higher end..." In 1995 he started studying & painting sacred geometry and in 2001 created his first website: bluemuse.org (now defunct). In 2006 David created an on-line store http://cafepress.com/davidsartwork. In 2007 he produced the 90 minute DVD THE SACRED GEOMETRY PAINTINGS Vol. 1: a consciousness experiment? Also in 2007, David self -published his first book, THE SACRED GEOMETRY PAINTINGS BOOK 1 and then a few weeks later THE SACRED GEOMETRY PAINTINGS BOOK 2 . They each respectively contain 300 images from the DVD.







Later that same Autumn of 2007 David self -published: "...LOVE, SEAGULLS...". The back of the book cover says it all: "If seagulls could talk whatt wisdom might they share.." It combines his original words with his intimate color photographs in sort of a homage to Richard Bach's Jonathan Livingston Seagull. This stemmed from an amazing bliss consciousness experience he had with seagulls who chose to convene with him and treated him as part of the family. In 2008, he published THE UNPOLISHED MANUSCRIPT. Here he describes himself as a diamond in the rough and exposes the human side of being a creative genius. This grew out of verbally sharing the story of his creative development and personal journey "...so many times that eventually i figured i ought to write it all down, leave a record before heading off any further into the unknown." This according to a rumor he either heard or started a long time ago, "...that before we leave this world for good we must share what we've learned with at least 6 people!.."

Also in 2008 David self-published DIVINE METAPHYSICS 101: the short course...illustrated...the care and feeding of the natural high ? This 100 page book composed of his original words on original photographs is what he calls"... a Reader's Digest version of all the things i was given to understand by the Universe during what i came to call my 'spiritual acceleration', where i was in a state of bliss 24 hours a day for nearly 3 months in the winter of 1993-94. The last 30 pages tells the story of 1999...where i was called to make this amazing journey from Venice Beach, to Hawaii then across the world to all these sacred sites like the Grand Canyon, Serpent Mound, Avebury Stone Circle, Stone Henge, Paris, Amsterdam, Vienna, the Palace of Knossos on Crete, Athens, Jerusalem, Mount Sinai; and to gatherings like the American National in Pennsylvania, Woodstock '99, the European Rainbow in Hungary, the 9.9.09 gathering on Glastonbury Tor, and the Israeli National Gathering in the Negev Desert...all to be at the Pyramids for the Millennium..."






In 2009 David self-published his eleventh book in the past two years THE BOOK OF DAYS: THE SACRED GEOMETRY PAINTINGS (TM) DAILY ORACLE & MASTER ALMANAC 2010 ( he self-published the first version, the 2009 edition last New Years Day). This work includes 18 living calendars from the world's traditions, and features 5 original speculative and oracular calendars like THE SACRED GEOMETRY PAINTINGS PERPETUAL CALENDAR, THE 28 NIGHTS OF THE GREEK MUSES SPECULATIVE CALENDAR, and THE I CHING ORACULAR LUNAR CALENDAR which goes through 2012.

I asked him why he thought that so many artists struggle, and he said that it was all about learning to practice the intricacies of 'the care and feeding of a good idea'. In other words it was not just about having good ideas but taking the steps to nurture and nourish them and make them happen. Sound familiar? I have spoken to many artists who love creating but have blocks about trading their brain children into cash flow for various reasons. Not so with DAE, he said, "...the key is to be working on more than one idea at a time so that when you reach the point when you've turned over all the stones you can with one idea, you can move onto the next idea knowing that it's now left up to the universe to follow through...be sure to turn over all the stones you can up to the minute, that way you will know that you have done everything you can, and the rest is up to the universe...and if the universe wants it to to happen it will. And if it doesn't support it, you will know that it wasn't because you didn't do everything you could on your end." He has original ideas and then he breathes life into them and gives them roots and wings. Unless an idea has both roots and wings, it will neither have substance, nor fly. When pressed why he thought most artists, creative folks, and would-be entrepreneurs struggle to turn their idea's and dreams into an income they can live on David said," one word: Perseverance... It's about not giving up, but showing up day after day, after day, after day..Living your passion....but also being responsive to what information our 'failures' are trying to tell us about what adjustments we need to make to our premise as reality tries to naturally bring life to our dream...What great idea isn't informed by our repeated failure? in this light failure is our friend, teacher, and co-worker because it is trying to provide us with what we need to bring our idea into the real world where it fully can stand the true test: the light of day...the Key is not to take 'no' for an answer...sometimes no means just not now, or not yet...the only way to know is to keep on it...entertaining the muse...remaining open to whatever the Universe wants to have happen with the idea...because in the end it's all about what serves the Universe and doing ones best to remain in alignment with this. Basically it's a partnership...the only one you'll ever need and the best one you'll ever have.and if you're lucky it'll be a love relationship, rather than a relationship of convenience or worse: reluctance... " He advises, "...to trust in the Universe and the resources will appear, but you still have to show up and follow through! and show up and follow through!! and show up and follow through...!!!" You get the idea! ""...To develop a partnership, a conscious working and loving and trusting relationship with the Universe. Just imagine ...the Universe is the Lover who will love us anyway, but prefers to be chosen with glee...without reservation...reluctance or hesitation...but with true soulful glee!!!...like the Lover we can't wait to see again...and that moment when we finally see them again...we choose...we can choose at any and every moment."

DAE is a traveller. As a young man, he hitchhiked across America and jumped trains, exploring his raison Detre. "...In college and out in the world i just wanted to know 'WHY?..Why are we here?' then as i started to get a glimpse of some answers...i wanted to know 'HOW'...How are we here? and 'How can i help? how can i do some good?' ". In 1991 he attended his first Rainbow Gathering for peace at the age of 34. He has been to every American Annual Rainbow Gathering since. A Rainbow Gathering is "...like building temporary Eco-village in the wilderness with a full infrastructure, and people coming from all over the world to simply practice being peace, being the best version of themselves they can be in the company of others...imagine a giant slumber party in the woods, hippie summer-camp...At the American National on the 4th of July since the first one in 1972, we hold a silence prayer for world peace from dawn until 'Rainbow Noon' when the silence is broken by the childrens parade making to the center of the circle...". David has helped to "focalize", and even scout for gathering sites, like the World Rainbow Gathering site in Zimbabwe in 2001 for the Total Solar Eclipse on the June Solstice.

We spoke of challenges. He has had many and learned from a very early age how to live a life that was different. He joked: "I know what it is to try to herd cats!" He embraces challenge, welcomes it and learns from it knowing that it is all part of the greater scheme of things "The Universe doesn't miss anything!"

Well, what an fantastic experience for me to share a little time with one of the most phenomenal people of our time. I would really recommend checking him out on FB and exploring his websites. They are a little, shall we say unconventional. But hey, you wouldn't really expect to see convention on any DAE website now, would we?

EARTH HISTORY;Seth Speaks

Seth Speaks

Seth Speaks by Jane Roberts was one of the most precise and accurate channeled information to first usher in the new age.

"Each individual has access to intuitional knowledge and can gain glimpses of inner reality. The universe speaks to each of us in this regard....Consciousness creates form. It is not the other way around. All personality are not physical. It is only because you are so busily concerned with daily matters that you do not realize that there is a portion of you who knows that its own powers are far superior to those shown by the ordinary self. "

You have each lived other existences, and that knowledge is within you though you are not consciously aware of it. I hope that this book will serve to release the deeply intuitive self within each of my readers and to bring to the foreground of consciousness whatever particular insights will serve you most."

2012, 11:11, the Mayan Calendar and the Roman Catholic Church

The symbolism within the Roman Catholic Church seems to indicate a knowledge of what the Mayan's have stated all along.  The Mayans, along with other indigenous cultures, represented the Milky Way Galaxy (MWG) as a snake who is about to bite its own tail.

The snake, in Christianty, has represented temptation and evil, yet look at these pictures below and ask yourself, "What did the Roman Catholic Church know about the Mayan calendar that they're not telling us?"

Further examination into this coverup by the RCC leads us to pictures like this:


Notice the royal crown above the snake.  If the snake represents the  MWG, then this man is ascending into the MWG, feet first.

Quetzalcoatl depicted as a snake devouring a man, from the Codex Telleriano-Remensis.

This story was replicated on other continents, long before they were able to communicate with one another:

In the designs above from Egypt and Europe, the little souls is emerging jubilantly from the mouth of a Serpent (or worm hole). These express the passage "Osiris enters the tail of a great serpent, was drawn through its body and came out through its mouth, and was then born anew." The story of Jesus/Jonah and the whale mirrors this story.

A statue of the Great Sun Buddha, dating from the 12th century in Cambodia. He is seated in the coils of a snake.

These aren't "random" images by any stretch of the imagination.  Check out the religion section of this forum for more info on this in the Vatican Lies Illuminated – A Prologue thread: http://maya12-21-2012.com/2012forum/index.php?topic=1316.0

It is no coincidence the symbols like this have been used in today's society:


The Mayan Calendar & Roman Catholic Church Connection
Richard C. Hoagland

When Columbus sailed the ocean in 1492, one of the things he brought back was stuff from the Mayan calendar, Mayan Codices. We were told they were burned, right? Wrong! I think they were sequestered in the Vatican archive. Who in the right mind is going to destroy information? Forget the fact that they are not religious, that they're into saving their own skins, that they're looking for edges on society and politics and populations, and it's all about control.

The cover story is, of course if they're burned, nobody can look at them any more - so you can look at them in secret. So I think all these codices that the scholars missed, they went back to the Vatican.

The reason I know this, cause the only way this could have worked out is that in 1582, when a German scholar was set up by Pope Gregory to head a council to reform the calendar. The seasons had gotten out of sequence with Easter and Christmas, and the resurrection of Christ and all that. You can’t have Christmas in July, and that was what was going on. So the calendar had to be reformed from the old Julian calendar. So Gregory sets Clavius, who is the German mathematician genius, to head this panel, this ‘presidential committee’, if you want to think of it in those terms, to basically recommend changes in the calendar.

When all's said and done, they came out with a calendar which readjusted the dates, the seasons, the times, brought everything back in sync. It’s called the Gregorian calendar. We live under it now. It took a while for it to percolate through various parts of Christendom and parts of the world that were not Christian at that time. In 1583 it was set ahead 11 days.

If you look at the synchronization of the Mayan calendar and the Gregorian calendar, this very crucial date of 2012, according to the US Naval observatory, you can go on to their website - Google is your friend - and you will find that the magic moment, the Mayan moment when the world changes, doesn’t end - but changes - radically, is December 21st, 2012, at 11:11 am. Universal Time.

There's no way that can be accidental, because 11:11 is a code for the physics that we’ve decoded from the monuments of Mars. That’s a long story that we don’t have time to get into now, but it’s on the Enterprise website, it’s in the books. The point is: there's no way that Clavius could have done this unless he either had an independent source of knowledge that was much more sophisticated.

Cliff High, innovator of the web bot, stated:

"The 11:11 am alignments on December 21, 2012 was deliberately created by Pope Gregory, under the direction of the powers that be at that time.  They took a german mathmatician, who assembled a team and then they used texts that theoretically do not exist.  Many of the mayan books that were said to have been burned weren't burned, but crated up and taken back to the Vatican as part of the payoff for the expedition and the slicing of the planet between the spanish and the portugeuse by the pope of that time."

"Pope Gregory brought aboard a  team of mathmaticians who spent 5 months at the reconciliation level alone, to get the gregorian calendar to align, specifically, with the end of the mayan calendar with these particular numbers. They wanted the 11:11 am because 11 is the number of mastery, it is one number beyond divinity and the 11:11 combo brings you to 22 which is their number for sainthood or ascension.  The whole 2012 date continuously points back to the holy cross, or the swastika.  If you look down on a swastika, it's both the double cross, indicating the 4 sided pyramid, or 5 sided counting the bottom, but it also represents a solar effect.  This solar effect can been seen from the sun or from outside the earth but we can't see it from here.  The effect twists somewhat to create an image similar to the swastika.  the swastika was encoded as a reference to solar activity that will occur around 2012."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I’ve had a mathematics professor who was the head of the department at Fairleigh Dickinson University actually write on the record that he could not figure out how Clavius did this. It’s too damn precise. So my supposition is that it was the secret codices brought back by Columbus et al, sequestered in the Vatican, with the Mayan Calendar, where they were able to adjust the Gregorian calendar so it would come out at 11:11 AM, the morning of the 21st, 2012.

Because the implications are so serious, and the amount of effort being spent by the bad guys is so great, I strongly infer that it’s not going to be a good hair day for a lot of people. I cannot take that to the bank yet.

There are various ways that this could be changed, radically. One way is if the guys in the black ops community, who are playing with their secret toys, spaceships and secret space program, going to and from, looting the Moon, finding the libraries, doing God knows what they are doing out there. If they suddenly realize that this technology is actually applicable to entire worlds, that there is a physics here that can literally take control of the planet, and prevent bad things from happening... that would be really cool.

The thing that would get us in the end is if there is a real problem coming, and there isn’t a damn thing we can do about it. Fortunately, based on all kinds of evidence, including the folks that you guys talk to all the time, everybody inside knows all this stuff. It’s just us peons outside that are not supposed to know it. Which means that nothing has to be invented. All there has to be, is redirected from over here, whatever they are doing with it, to over there, which is the planetary problem.

Our job is to get people on the inside to realize they don’t have a ticket out of here. That they’re caught with all the rest of us. We're all in it together because the lie has been different at every level. Even if they have been told they have a ticket out, they probably don’t. Do they have families and aunts and uncles and dogs and cats and mortgages and all that stuff? They will be here when whatever is coming in 2012, based on a physics that I can document, is here.
