The timewave theory is vague, pseudoscientific nonsense. I read all of Mckenna's books in college 10+ years ago, and it never made sense...

Basically he took the patterns of the different i-ching hexagrams, made them into a graph, and then applied the shape of that graph to a timeline, which he arbitrarily started at various historical points in the past and then ascribed the peaks and valleys of the graph to big events that represented "novelty" to him.. The most recent cycle of the timewave was started ARBITRARILY on the date of the Hiroshima bombing because McKenna theorized it represented a point of extreme novelty. However, starting the cycle on that date meant it would end in November of 2012... so, he fudged the date to make it align with the mayan calendar end date of 12/21/2012. That is all there is to it!

I think most people who believe in the timewave theory have never actually read McKenna's writings on it, they probably just learned about it from youtube videos. Read a book, morans!

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.
