Love your thoughts on this sentence; If we can understand (it), then it’s a sign we haven’t understood (it) enough. Take a moment, and think about what that might mean. Welcome back … Thank you for taking that time for me. You might be wondering why, and I promise you it will all become very clear. The cycles of time, DNA and down the rabbit hole — I imagine that caught your attention. And, this topic is not meant to be scary — you may find It a little woowoo but I hope I have your permission to go there.
The Cycles of Time and Plinko
Yes, Plinko from the Price is Right. Picture that game where someone drops a ball down a mess of spokes hoping it lands on the higher prize money. It falls just so, and something the human eye simply cannot make sense of. If we did, we would all be very wealthy playing that game. It was as though the balls knew how to organize themselves in an intelligent way.
Was it a hoax?
Perhaps it was computer generated?
Whichever side you sit on, I love more than anything that the dialogue Is opening (in fact, some of my favourite type of conversations)
In 1944, two Canadians, Oswald Avery and Colin MacLeod, and an American, MacLyn McCarty, published a paper in The Journal of Experimental Medicine that demonstrated genes to be the chemical, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). What’s interesting about this is that even though this paper is now regarded as the single most important publication in biology of the 20th century, Avery was not awarded the Nobel Prize.
This raises the question of course as to why his work did not earn him the Prize.
These are several possible reasons.
One, being that the discovery may have been ahead of its time. And others involved the physical titles of these men beings scientists instead of recognized in genetics or even chemistry. But with all that aside, what he was able to demonstrate this intellectual organization like it had never been tangibly demonstrated before.
Was his theory a shot in the dark?
Did he know as much then as he thought he knew?
As Time Continued ….
In 2011 another man who was ultimately successful in his receipt of a Nobel Prize for being able to create DNA in a test tube — using hydrogen and oxygen. So, we know these molecules exist — everywhere, and all the time. And yet, knowing this we still question molecular and magnetic forces.
Interesting, isn’t it?
What I want to suggest to you, and yes a little sci-fi here but, we do have possess these gravitational pulls. And, we see them most often in those we find ourselves surrounded by. I might go as far to say that this is a clear illustration of that energy that never lies.
These gravitational pulls ultimately pull in the cycles of time. And, probably one of the best books written of all time is called ‘The Fourth Turning’ by two historians. They took a deep look into history over the last couple hundred years.
They make a very convincing case for a disaster and era of economic depression and crisis in the coming years. Like the Kondratieff wave, based on price behaviour over time, they are essentially interpreting the ‘Long Cycle’ through characteristics of generational aspects.
Although in the book they expect this era of crisis, the fourth turning, to have begun in 2005 and last untill 2025, they give leeway in saying ‘give or take a few years.’
It seems clear with present trends it could be just around the corner.
Will we be witnesses to a Massive Global Realignment?
What will this Precursor or Time Dictate in the coming Years?
The cycle begins with the First Turning, a “High” which comes after a crisis era. Whereas, in a High, institutions are deemed strong and individualism is weak. It suggests that society is confident about where it wants to go collectively, even if many feel silenced by the prevailing conformity.
The Second Turning is an “Awakening,” when institutions are attacked in the name of higher principles and deeper values. Just when society is hitting its high of public progress, people are suddenly tired of all the social discipline and want to recapture a sense of personal authenticity.
The Third Turning is an “Unraveling”. In many ways this is the opposite of the High.
Institutions are weak and distrusted, while individualism is strong and flourishing. These decades such as the 1990s, are notorious for their cynicism, bad manners and weak civic authority.
Finally, the Fourth Turning is deemed a “Crisis” period. This is when our institutional life is reconstructed from the ground up, always in response to a perceived threat to the nation’s very survival. If history does not produce such an urgent threat, Fourth Turning leaders will invariably find one — and may even fabricate one — to mobilize collective action.
Do you think this Fourth Turning theories or predictions are relevant to our present cycle of time?
I would love your thoughts!
