We are definitely "headed" toward....something epic! Consider the growth of the following:
I would love to superimpose a chart of the following:

Population of Earth (consider in 1970 there were 4 billion people, now in 2013 there are 7 billion!)

Inflation of U.S. Dollar (98% purchasing power eroded since 1913...hmmmm what Act was passed by Congress in 1913?)

Consolidation of wealth/wealth distribution....I do not like the term "wealth distribution" because wealth is not distributed, it is earned and obtained. But, I think of "wealth distribition" as if viewing wealth from a 3rd person point of view- just how wealth is spread out among the people of the world.

The "growth" of technology...if it could somehow be displayed as a graph chart, in novelty and progress in technological advances

The "growth" of medicine...see above

The rate of extinction of life forms on planet Earth


All of these graph charts would show continuing and continuing upward trends....and in the past decade, a massive spike in increase!!!


This brings to mind, once again the concept of time as a cycle, especially the Mayan T'zolkin and the orders of magnitude of "time shrinking."

Yes, this is very much so also, in a way related to the concept of "Timewave Zero" and the ever-increasing "novelty" in the universe.

Entropy is a topic to be considered as well.


But, if you were to superimpose all of those graph charts, it would be obvious to even an 8 year old child, that we are headed toward "something." And by something, I mean something MAJOR.

Apocalypse? The "end" of a cycle, with an E.L.E.? The "transformation" of man, into a different type of being?
The singularity, where man and machine will no longer be distinguishable?



So, then. I pose to you two topics for consideration and debate:

1. What do you think of the graph chart concept- what graph charts would you add to give strength to this idea? What graph charts would *weaken* the concept? Can the graph charts just continue to "explode" upward and upward, each time growing more than an order of magnitude greater than the time period before? (this question leads to the next idea-)

2. What is at the "end" of these graph charts? Can they continue forever? If not, what happens to stop everything? Is it a "hard" reset?




*yes, I understand that my chart offerings in the beginning of the post are certainly a United-States-centric worldview. Please do not let that prejudice your thoughts on this subject.

We live in exciting times...in fact, there is not a word to describe this age we live in....Exciting implies enjoyment, and I do not think this age is purely joyful...there is going to be darkness and pain and suffering either way....but will the pain be likened to a butterfly writhing in a cocoon, eventually emerging as a completely altered being- gorgeous and free and liberated and happy?
Or will the pain be constant and not a path, but the destination itself?

I understand there is so much to discuss here on this thread. Please share your thoughts and ideas as cohesively, intelligently, and respectfully as possible. That said, I am so interested to hear what *you* have to say!

Let me add -

Cost of an ER visit in 1913 $7.25 (a guess, probably high)

Deunov’s Prophecy: Agartha, 2012 and the New World Era

By Wayne H. Purdin

Take out a dollar bill and look on the back. The “all-seeing eye” and unfinished pyramid are Masonic symbols, placed there in 1935 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was a 32nd degree Freemason. His Vice President, Henry A. Wallace, also a 32nd degree Freemason and a disciple of the Russian mystic Nicholas Roerich, encouraged Roosevelt to use the eye and pyramid from the back of the Great Seal of the United States to mint a coin, but Roosevelt opted instead to put it on the back of the paper dollar. In the 1930s, before he was elected vice president, Wallace addressed Roerich in letters as “Dear Guru,” a fact that came out during Wallace’s campaign for the presidency in 1948. (White & Maze, 1995)

But how did the all-seeing eye get on the Great Seal in the first place? The all-seeing eye is a symbol that has been used by secret societies like the Freemasons and other organizations of the Great White Brotherhood (which is a heavenly association of white-aura masters from all paths dedicated to effecting good on Earth) for hundreds of years. Peter Deunov, the founder of the Universal White Brotherhood of Bulgaria, used it as the symbol for wisdom in his pentagram of the perfected man.

According to Manly P.Hall in TheSecret Destiny of America:
The pyramid and the all-seeing eye represent the Universal House surmounted by the radiant emblem of the Great Architect of the Universe.... (Hall is referring here to the Elohim Cyclopea, one of the builders of form, who created the material universe.)

Here is represented the great pyramid of Gizah, composed of 13 rows of masonry, showing 72 stones... which represent, in turn, the laws, powers, and energies of Nature by which the perfection of man is achieved...
There is only one possible origin for these symbols, and that is the secret societies which came to this country 150 years before the Revolutionary War. (Hall, 1944)

Some people interpret the banner under the pyramid, which reads “Novus Ordo Seclorum,” as “New World Order.” They point to it as evidence of a plot by the Freemasons to establish a sinister one-world government. But the phrase actually means “New Order of the Ages” and was adapted by the seal’s designer, Charles Thomson, from a line in Virgil’s Eclogue IV, a pastoral poem that expresses the longing for a golden age of peace and happiness, which the Greeks and Romans of Virgil’s time knew as the highest era in Plato’s Annus Magnus or ‘Great Year’: “Now comes the last age of the Cumaean song; the great order of the ages arises anew.” This was Henry Wallace’s vision that he expressed to Roerich in a letter as “the breaking of the New Day when the people of Shamballa [place of peace] would create an era of peace and plenty.” (White & Maze, 1995) Who are the “people of Shamballa,” where is it, and what role will it play in the coming of this golden age?

bravo brother you bring up very interesting material on the subject matter, to me as you have mentioned above also, I have a feeling that everything is gonna happen at the same time, war, currency crash, killer virus, meteors , all at the same time, an this is where the growth of the human consciousness occurs and ultimately the evolution of this race, it is a painful process, but man must fully realize both darkness and light, he must see two as brother, for they work in harmony to keep the evolution of this universe going.

the book "Future Shock" by Toffler, in 1970 more or less predicted this.

i.e. rapid technological "progress" would be destructive of both individual self concept, and place tremendous stress on all familiar social constructs.

someone who posted here a few years back, but was hated for running a site which charged a fee for access to his stock market recos, quite convincingly argued that the main purpose of wars is to cover up high financial crimes. In the face of what we have witnessed over the preceding decade, it would seem that we are overdue for a mass bloodletting.

Technology and medicine improves as population grows. Also, the correlation between inflation and wealth distribution does nothing to prove your point.

I see what you are trying to do, but graphs will not help in this case.

The end point is non-existent as we are just the birth and a small part of a much larger organism known as the Universe. Eventually the sun will no longer shine and the earth will not exists. Even after that we will still be alive in a different form. A more basic form at the molecular level.

The human era may be coming to a close... it may not be. There is no way to tell when humans will be extinct. However, I can tell you humans are not capable of destroying their own species with out ruining their home planet Earth. Geoengineering, genetically modified specimens, oil spills and nuclear waste will be the death of this planet if it is to continue.

*yes, I understand that my chart offerings in the beginning of the post are certainly a United-States-centric worldview. Please do not let that prejudice your thoughts on this subject.

We live in exciting times...in fact, there is not a word to describe this age we live in....Exciting implies enjoyment, and I do not think this age is purely joyful...there is going to be darkness and pain and suffering either way....but will the pain be likened to a butterfly writhing in a cocoon, eventually emerging as a completely altered being- gorgeous and free and liberated and happy?
Or will the pain be constant and not a path, but the destination itself?

I understand there is so much to discuss here on this thread. Please share your thoughts and ideas as cohesively, intelligently, and respectfully as possible. That said, I am so interested to hear what *you* have to say!

I would love to create a chart but I'm too fucking lazy to do it, so instead I'll put a bunch of crap text together and try to have you visualize it.

And if you were such a christian you know that the only person who is going to bring about world peace and world unity is the Messiah. I know you've thought you were him before but you're not... and your calendar if it does what you want it to, will be a sign of the end times... if you believe in that... so for fucks sake pipe down and go bother other people... your post had absolutely NOTHING to do with the OP's and you just want your calendar taken seriously.

Fine... SUBMIT IT TO GOVERNMENT OR SOMEONE WHO CAN ACTUALLY CHANGE THINGS... NOT TO A CONSPIRACY FORUM THAT WONT AND CANT.
