Riding bicycles into the future.
Timewave Zero is a unifying theory that purports to calculate the ebb and flow of novelty in the universe as an inherent quality of time. It is an idea conceived of and discussed at lengthby Terrence McKenna from the early 1970s until his death in the year 2000. Novelty, in this context, can be thought of as newness, density of entropy and dynamic change as opposed to static habituation. According to McKenna, when "novelty" is graphed over time, a waveform known as timewave zero or simply the timewave results. The graph shows at what times, but never at what locations, novelty is supposedly increasing or decreasing. According to the timewave graph, great periods of novelty occurred about 4 billion years ago when Earth was formed, 65 million years ago when dinosaurs were extinct and mammals expanded, about 10,000 years ago after the end of the ice age, around late 18th century when social and scientific revolutions progressed, during the sixties, around the time of 9/11, an extended spike during November 2008, and with coming novelty periods in October 2010, with the novelty progressing towards the infinity on 21 December 2012. Important graphic points in 2009, appear around 19 April, 29 August and 23 October 2009, indicating the possibility of significant events around these dates. This coming Thursday will be the 19th of April, the 66th Anniversary of the first deliberate human ingestion of LSD-25 by Dr. Albert Hofmann. I intend to ingest 2400ug and get seriously molten with some close friends, and hopefully ride the timewave into oblivion on a thick amber crystalline board of dimethyltryptamine.
See you in the future, I wonder what will happen?
