I've been mulling over timewave zero, and I had a few interesting thoughts.
According to mr. McKenna, the i ching folds back over itself. What if the "eschaton" he talks about is just this turning point,, and time itself, and along with it novelty, just starts to flow backwards?
We might not even notice it.
Also, if the world is 13.5 billion years old, the whole process would take 27 billion years. One of God's favorite numbers.
