CULVER CITY, CA – NY Times Bestselling author Gregg Braden offered a compelling presentation, Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age on Friday evening, Feb. 27th , at the Agape International Spiritual Center. The Center was founded by the Rev. Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith of “The Secret” fame.
It was Braden's first presentation on this new topic.
Braden asked, “What does 2012 mean for us today?” noting that a number of traditions around the globe predict the end of the world on Dec. 21st, 2012. Climate change, new diseases, food shortages, and “wars, and rumors of wars,” all seem to herald the end. Even now, he notes, some people are living in bunkers, hoarding food and weapons, and preparing for a global disaster.
Braden showed the trailer for the movie “2012,” due out later this year, which introduces an epic adventure about a global cataclysm that brings an end to the world, (Hollywood-style, natch.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVi_2lHBVhQ
Perhaps inspired by images like these, a 15-year old boy recently wrote a letter to Braden, saying that it didn’t seem right that the world would end in 3 years, just when he turned 18, and was supposed to be beginning his life. Poignantly, he asked Braden if there was any way for him to survive.
According to Braden, the end of any age is accompanied by a period of brief but significant intensity, and he says we are in those times now. These outer changes inspire us to look within for answers.
And, he says, it is no accident that we are here at the moment of great change – the very same science that heralds doom and gloom, also offers the answer: what is required is a new language. And he explores what that language might be.
Science tell us that:
1. In the center core of the Milky Way Galaxy is a great source of energy, a powerful, pulsing, magnetic field that affects us.
2. Where our planet is in her orbit determines how we are affected by this magnetic field of energy. The location changes on a regular basis over long cycles of time which can be calculated. Ancient Egyptian and Mayan civilizations knew about this, but we couldn’t confirm it scientifically until the 1990’s with the use of the Hubble telescope.
3. The Earth also “wobbles” on its axis, due to the gravitational pull of the sun and moon. This “wobbling” affects how outer space appears when viewed from Earth. One complete wobble takes almost 26,000 years. This 26,000 year cycle is composed of 12 shorter cycles of slightly over 5000 years each, and is called the Precession of the Equinox.
4. The Milky Way galaxy is shaped like a disc. Our solar system is positioned toward the outer portions of the galaxy.
On Dec. 21st, 2012, when the solstic sun rises, our planet will be in perfect alignment with the core of the Milky Way Galaxy for the first time in over 5,000 years, giving us an an unobstructed window to our galaxy’s source energy. This moment is the ending of a 5000 year cycle, as well as the ending of the 26,000 year cycle.
But this isn’t the first time this has happened. This is a cycle that our little planet has gone through many times.
The last time a similar ending of cycles happened was in 1155 BC, when Egypt’s 20th dynasty collapsed. The cause of its demise? They initiated so many wars, that they couldn’t maintain them all, and this caused economic collapse. Déjà vu, anyone?
Braden explained that a fractal is repetition in different scales: microcosm and macrocosm.
An atom is a fractal of a solar system, and a neural synapse is a fractal of a bolt of lightening. Nature builds the universe from similar patterns. Braden said, “The small pattern is a window to understanding the big pattern.”
This fractal relationship is seen in the cycles of time as well. If one can determine when the seed event of a cycle was planted, the natural laws and rhythms of cyclic activity will divulge details about what to expect when the conditions repeat.
