Subsequently, liberty is taken to give a brief review and critique of the book, the presentation, the scientific credibility or lack of itand overall opinion of it. It is interesting to note that actually reading the book as a course requirement compared to listening to the audio version of it at the first encounter while sitting in Manila traffic1 creates very different impressions.
The book itself is organized into 21 Time Codes,2 though one will get a sense while reading it, that a myriad of ideas are repeated throughout. This appears to have been a deliberate strategy of the author to aid the reader in remembering what he thinks are most important. So the next intent is to condense the Time Codes into five key takeaways, into a cheat sheet, an interpretation of what the author wants to convey to his readers.
Braden spent a good amount of time explaining the Time Code Calculator, applying it to both his personal life and to events in American history. The last section of this paper will present the application of the Time Code Calculator more broadly to include local events in recent Philippine history, starting with a seed event in For clarity, this essay will not expound on research presented in the book unless necessary to support the objectives already stated.
The book garnered mixed reviews from a broad audience, particularly in the scientific realms and the interpretation of esoteric texts and drawings of the ancient tribes mentioned in the book.
More details on Section IV of this paper. The central premise of the book is to shed light on the hype about the purported date of 21 December being the end of the world. Published inthe book seeks to explain, in fact, assuage the reader that is not the end of the world but rather the end of time and the birth of a new world age. According to the Mayan6 calendar, our present world age which started in B. Braden explains how this date was arrived at based on the Mayan cycle of 5, years per cycle.
According to the calculations of Belgian astronomer Jean Meeus, it started as early as and will end sometime in The end of a world age is not abrupt and necessarily overlaps with the next one. He is Advisory Director and founding member of The Maya Conservancy, a non-profit foundation dedicated to education and preservation of ancient Maya sites. It went on to present an alternative view of time — a repetitive cycle or fractal12as places happening within cycles, and being inseparable with space hence, spacetime The concept of time is scrutinized as repeating patterns within bigger patterns — from personal, global, to galactic cycles.
Events will repeat themselves predictably even if the patterns are not recognized, and with greater intensity at later dates.
The past mirrors the future. Braden posits that the inevitability of the repetition allows us to predict when the next one will occur and so become more effective in fracttal to it.
Braden clarifies that it is not the event themselves that repeat, but the conditions that bring about the event, the fractal patterns. Since time is a recurring cycle then the same conditions can be known, measured, and predicted. Each time code is explained in detail, complete with historical background, research studies, and potential implications. Towards the middle of the book, Braden introduced the Time Code Calculator, which is a model to estimate when the conditions of a past event will recur using the golden ratio16 in the formula.
The way to ease the world-age transition is to change the way we feel about fractak world and to brwden it together. Collective human emotions and beliefs, both positive and negative, affect the behavior of nature and the environment. First, he stated that it is not science, though the reader will note the obvious references to scientific research. The book is replete with lessons on quantum physics. He also claimed that it is a well-researched and documented piece rfactal literature but missing peer reviews to establish its credibility.
Consequently, one will either continue reading or dismiss Braden as a fraud. The organization of the book according to the 21 Fime Codes was hardly a structure at all. Repetitive ideas are distributed across the time codes, specifically on the discussion of time cycles, cosmic calendars, and patterns. The repetition can be quite effective in driving this concept home.
It may seem annoying fracta first but one will understand the logic of the author behind it. He seems to be repeating the concepts either to test recall or demonstrate cycles in the thought process of the reader a much shorter cycle compared to the 5, years of each world age!
The reader can only glean the subliminal nature of this as an afterthought. The Time Code Calculator when tested with both global and personal events produces uncanny results that cannot be easily dismissed as coincidence.

Overall, the ideas in the book are astounding: The first reaction of the uninitiated reader in the realms of New Age thinking will be one of incredulity and cynicism. Braden makes no apologies, however, and assumes that the reader is first curious, then interested, and hopefully believes before the book ends.
A casual reader will reject yime that do not conform with their existing belief systems. The book begs that one suspend this disbelief and proceed with an open mind. Time is a cycle that proceeds based on a fractal, cosmic, and galactic pattern. Time Codes 1, 2, 7, and 10 The ancient Mayan calendar calculates the end of the present world age at the winter solstice on 21st December ; a world age is equivalent to 5, years.
Fractal Time: The Secret of and a New World Age by Gregg Braden
This is not the end of the world but the end of time and the beginning of the next world age. The present world age that begun in B. The cycle of precession lasts 25, ffactal, with 12 constellations of the Zodiac, so roughly every 2, years, the equinox moves in front of a new Zodiac constellation.
Fractak astrologists say the Age of Acquarius has actually begun in While the birth of Jesus Christ occurred in the Age of Pisces 2, years agothe Age of Acquarius has been characterized as an age of wholism and the drawing of humanity together.
The significance of the beginning and end of these time cycles are discussed in the next key takewaways.
This star moved to within 30o of the September equinox point inmeaning that Regulus left the sign Leo to enter the sign Virgo in that year. Presuming equal-sized constellations in antiquity, that places the border of the constellations Pisces and Aquarius at o west of Regulus, or at the March equinox point.
By this frractal, the Age of Aquarius started in The world moves within a bigger and grander pattern of global, cosmic and galactic magnitude. Braden implored us to thank our ancestors for documenting what they found so we can prepare for what is about to come. The thought that merely the position of the Earth within the galaxy creates powerful changes throughout the beginning and end of an age is both rime and exhilarating. With modern-day technology, scientists are able to substantiate the findings of these ancient peoples.
The movement of the Earth is a cycle within a vractal cycle. Since time moves in repetitive cycles and patterns, the conditions to which events occur can be predicted. Therefore, fratcal are a good thing.
It can be both portentous and optimistic depending on the perspective that is taken. With increased awareness, human beings should be able to recognize the patterns and therefore have more control over the outcomes — no longer victims of fate. Cognizance should be exercised about repetitions and nested cycles in time, as well as the greater intensity of the conditions when they are repeated.

The conditions will be stronger and are likely to demand attention. The key to unlocking the patterns is to recognize when they begin. Probabilities can be predicted gfegg the conditions appear in the present and the situation is primed. How the events play out is the result of the decisions made at that point in time. There is no greater advantage to re-script lives and futures. TV series aired in The Time Code Calculator is a tool to predict the appearance of conditions for an event to occur.
The TCC can also calculate when the fime of the conditions of events will occur, which had a big impact at a local, vractal, or global level, based on a first seed event in the cycle.
When the TCC is applied, one may note that moments of both joy and pain are intricately interwoven in the same periods. Life is, well, just like that. The outcomes of our lives and our world depend on the actions and decisions we choose. Time Codes 12, 20, and 21 The repeating cycles and patterns of time are powerful. When the cycles are recognized, the conditions presented, and the decision is made, this eventually dictates the outcome of the event.
Understanding the time codes enable us to see the simplicity of the workings of the universe, amidst the abstruse calculations, cosmic alignments, and magnetic pole reversals.
Reversing the current trajectory of the world towards its own destruction is the ultimate message of the book, end of the world age or not. Separation from other human beings and the world will not augur well with the sustainable life that everyone desires.
Just as the world moves according to celestial and cosmic forces, it also moves according to the vibrations of the thoughts and feelings of human beings, a symphony of heart frequencies.
Braden warns of seemingly impending doom but also offers the expectation that these events are brief and temporary. The TCC can only show the conditions of the past that will appear again, not the effect of consciousness or choice. It is worthy to reiterate that human choices can alter the course of events, fractwl when the conditions that support those events are present. The result of the illustrative TCC calculations are along the following modes: When can we expect something that has happened in the past to happen again?
What date in the past holds the conditions we can expect for the future? February 25, This date marked a significant national event that has been engraved in the hearts and minds of every Filipino.
The true empowerment of democracy was fractl in EDSA by their successful efforts to oust the then dictator of 21 years, Ferdinand E. Marcos, by a peaceful demonstration without tolerance for violence and bloodshed.
Convert S1 to absolute date A1. Calculate phi L1phi of L1. Calculate cycle balance B1 as total cycle length A1. Apply phi ratio of lapsed cycle L1 to the balance of the cycle B1 to find the interval in years between the seed date and the next time it repeats I1.
