Terence McKenna's Timewave Zero
    #4443241 - 07/23/05 03:53 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Has anyone seriously looked into this, and is able to understand how Terence came up with the concept of TimeWave Zero from the I Ching? I began to understand it while reading "The Invisible Landscape," but it quickly became too complex and I got lost. He doesn't seem to explain it well in any of the lectures I've heard.

Does anyone here understand the I Ching well, and how Terence derived the timewave zero concept from it? Of all of Terence's ideas this one seems by far the most unlikely, especially since supposedly "the mushroom" revealed it to him. Any comments are welcome...

Just say NO to the War on Drugs.

This has been covered (and covered, and covered) already:


Republican Values:

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

Dosen't that theory have something to do with novelty?

Isn't novelty supposed to come to zero, or something?

It kind of sounds a bit anti-climactic to me...

Under what sorts of circumstances, do you suppose, novelty will equal out... as in not positive and not negative, but zero: neutral.

I'm thinking that it's not something new... that is why the novelty of it is not going to be big. Don't expect too much when the time comes and the I-ching, Timewave theory and the Mayan Calendar coincide.

I believe that the novelty of that particular coincidence will not be very impressive...

Yet, it might be the beginning of something special...

Are you nominating this as "Most repeated thread topic" for the ESPYs ?


The proof is in the pudding.
