From the I-Ching to 2012: Terrance McKenna’s amazing theory and the singular event for humanity
The recently deceased philosopher, scientist (and some may say eccentric), Terrance McKenna was a complex man with a complex theory that ended in one simple statement: December 2012 will be a time we will never forget.
After intensively studying the I-Ching, the ancient Chinese oracle known as the “book of changes” (some say with the help of psychoactive plants in the Amazon), she began to see patterns. The I-Ching is made up of 64 hexagrams, which are made up of six levels, each of which alternates horizontal bars and dots. If you line them up and stack them so they fit inside a perfect square, you start to see movement within the shapes.
He decided to create a linear model starting in time with the era when the I-Ching was created in China and continuing to the present to see what patterns develop. When you input this information into a computer program, it forms a graph with an ascending and descending line, much like a stock market forecast. He then he noticed something amazing. The parts of the line that were higher or lower corresponded to moments in history when new forms were being developed.
When the line reached its peak, a new way would activate people’s psyche. When the line fell into a crack, it aligned with a time when reality seemed to unravel, or there was a big event, or a group of events at once, that galvanized people. (The graph indicates when, not where or what happens.)
You can see from the graph that important things happen at peaks and at valleys, both. My personal theory is that spikes are when the lights come on and someone embodies this by creating a new shape (which may not be assimilated and is therefore either feared or shunned). The low points are when the lights go out and everyone scrambles to find the switch because nothing is recognized. Each requires a new form to come into existence, but for a different reason.
Following the line on the graph, we see that it takes its last ascent around the time of Classical Greece (around 700 BC) and then dips steadily until it simply dips down the graph to infinity, ending the module. . And when was this event that had never occurred in the history of humanity? It was 2012. December 21, 2012 to be exact; the final moments of the Mayan Calendar, too, a calendar that had begun 5,000 years ago, ending on the same date Terrance’s module ended.
Terrance saw this time period end with time compression, over and over again, from 1945 to 2012. What can we expect from this based on his calculations and the findings of correlations of past event cycles?
McKenna said in an interview with the television show Sightings that his best guess is that someone probably invents some kind of time travel machine, because it’s like the end of linear time. In other words, all time merges into one time. Everything connects to everything else. Past, present and future become one. In effect, we could be undergoing an infinite amount of evolution in finite time.
Around 1968 the last peak occurred. This coincided with a very tumultuous point in our cultural history in the United States. While hippies frolicked and tried to create Nirvana on earth, the Vietnam War escalated to its final fatal shots, and Martin Luther King’s message came amid riots and violence until his voice was silenced. We can see that this peak provided great events that touched the psyche of a group of people and still resonates today.
As we move forward in time, we experience faster evolutionary growth in shorter periods of time. The last one we had was between that time of 1967-68 until the 1990s, which corresponded to the Dark Ages of the past. Then it circulates again from 2010 to 2012, only 64 times faster, then in 2012, 64 times faster still. In other words, we must adapt and evolve 64 times faster in each cycle. (Remember what I said earlier about 64 being the number of hexagrams in the I-Ching).
Nobody really knows what will happen. As different views on this time period converge, this 2012 date is beginning to become known in mainstream culture. Whether you take it seriously or not, people are starting to take notice. And when that happens, like compressed and accelerated time, attention draws energy to the date and accelerates that energy to us, creating a fait accompli.
As we move closer and closer to 2012, I think it will be important to be able to be incredibly agile, willingly releasing the old and adapting to each rapidly changing circumstance with lightning-fast decisions in the moment, decisions that come from the heart. . This will ensure that we are where we need to be for the best interest of our soul and that we will be there in peace.
We won’t have to look at a graph, know how fast things are speeding up, or ask someone what we should be doing. We will only know. If what Terrance McKenna says is true, this will be a day out of time while we are still on earth, and it could provide an opportunity for this life and all lives for every soul on earth.
