In his latest book, former senior computer systems designer and bestselling author Gregg Braden merges these ancient and modern world views into a powerful new model of time. Marrying the modern laws of fractal patterns to the ancient concept of cycles, he demonstrates how everything from the war and peace between nations to our most joyous relationships and personal crises are the returning patterns of our past. As each pattern returns, it carries the same conditions of previous cycles —fractal patterns that can be known, measured and predicted!

In his latest book, former senior computer systems designer and bestselling author Gregg Braden merges these ancient and modern world views into a powerful new model of time. Marrying the modern laws of fractal patterns to the ancient concept of cycles, he demonstrates how everything from the war and peace between nations to our most joyous relationships and personal crises are the returning patterns of our past. As each pattern returns, it carries the same conditions of previous cycles - fractal patterns that can be known, measured and predicted! What makes this model so important today is that the returning cycles also carry a window of opportunity - a choice point - that allows us to choose a new outcome for the cycle. Braden suggests that if we can see time from this perspective, the patterns will show us what's in store for the future, and perhaps how to avoid the mistakes of our past. After presenting the case histories that confirm the accuracy of fractal time calculations, the author crosses the traditional boundaries of science and spirituality to answer the question that must be asked; What does fractal time tell us about 2012, and beyond? Because the cycles repeat, the seed for 2012 has already happened and the pattern already exists! In a narrative format of easy-to-read science and true-life accounts, Fractal Time shows us what we can expect as we close the Great World Age described by the Mayan Calendar, and the secret to our moment in history.

Why a Watched Kettle Never Boils

This book provides an interdisciplinary introduction to the notion of fractal time, starting from scratch with a philosophical and perceptual puzzle. How subjective duration varies, depending on the way we embed current content into contexts, is explained. The complexity of our temporal perspective depends on the number of nestings performed, i.e. on the number of contexts taken into account. This temporal contextualization is described against the background of the notion of fractal time. Our temporal interface, the Now, is portrayed as a fractal structure which arises from the distribution of content and contexts in two dimensions: the length and the depth of time. The leitmotif of the book is the notion of simultaneity, which determines the temporal structure of our interfaces. Recent research results are described which present and discuss a number of distorted temporal perspectives. It is suggested that dynamical diseases arise from unsuccessful nesting attempts, i.e. from failed contextualization. Successful nesting, by contrast, manifests itself in a "win-win handshake" between the observer-participant and his chosen context. The answer as to why a watched kettle never boils has repercussions in many a discipline. It would be of immense interest to anyone who works in the fields of cognitive and complexity sciences, psychology and the neurosciences, social medicine, philosophy and the arts.

The ancient civilisation of the Mayans created a calendar that is still incredibly accurate today. Through observation of the stars they developed an understanding of the patterns of history, the ages of humankind, and even calculated exact dates when a new age would begin. The next age is set to begin on 21st December 2012. Drawing upon the elaborate and infinite patterns observable in nature, Gregg Braden shows the systems that lie behind the shaping of history. Taking his starting point from the Mayans, he shows their marking of the new age is but one instance of the cyclical nature of history. By understanding how our actions are repetitions of those in the past, Gregg shows us a way to make sense of the present and the dramatic changes yet to come. Gregg Braden's discoveries take us across the world and throughout time as he reveals the truth about our past, present and future. Please note: This is a new edition of the book previously published under the title Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age.

Scale Relativity and Fractal Space-time

A New Approach to Unifying Relativity and Quantum Mechanics

This book provides a comprehensive survey of the state-of-the-art in the development of the theory of scale relativity and fractal space-time. It suggests an original solution to the disunified nature of the classical-quantum transition in physical systems, enabling quantum mechanics to be based on the principle of relativity provided this principle is extended to scale transformations of the reference system. In the framework of such a newly-generalized relativity theory (including position, orientation, motion and now scale transformations), the fundamental laws of physics may be given a general form that goes beyond and integrates the classical and the quantum regimes. A related concern of this book is the geometry of space-time, which is described as being fractal and nondifferentiable. It collects and organizes theoretical developments and applications in many fields, including physics, mathematics, astrophysics, cosmology and life sciences.

Literature Review from the year 2014 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: A, Atlantic International University, course: PhD JOURNALISM, language: English, abstract: The book "Fractal Time-The Secret of 2012 and the New World Age" by Gregg Braden explores the discoveries of time as the means of communication from the past. In addition, the book proposes that time defines the map to an individual's future and provides a picture of the world to come. The Mayans identify December 21, 2012 as the end of the world age, particularly to be attributed to the Winter solace. The cycle is predicted to have started in the 5th world age that is approximately 3114 B.C. This defines 1800 years prior the time of the exodus of Moses, which is around 5125 years ago. Parallel to the world-age the traditions of the Indians were passing on through oral traditions thus they may have lost their accuracy along the transmission. Therefore, the oral communications are dated back before the literature.

In this compelling revised edition of his book The Turning Point, best-selling author and visionary Gregg Braden merges his expertise in leading-edge science with present-day realities to reveal the strategies for embracing stressful change in our lives. This updated edition contains an all-new chapter not included in the original release, featuring material on the surprising discovery of brain-like cells – sensory neurites – located within the human heart, and the role they play in creating personal resilience. The powerful heart-brain connection made possible by these cells is now recognized as a portal to the deepest levels of our intuition, as well as a gateway to the subconscious mind. This book gets to the heart of the fundamental question you have no doubt asked yourself in the face of the complexities and challenges of the modern world: How do I make everyday life better for myself and my family? Through his skillful synthesis of easy-to-understand science and real-life circumstances, Gregg uniquely provides the answer, describing: • State-of-the-art discoveries that are the key to embracing big change in a healthy way • The three shifts that will transform the way you think of your career, lifestyle, and finances • The simple strategies of heart-based resilience that you can learn and use immediately for optimal health in our stressful world • A template of strategies for resilient living for your family and community . . . and much more. Gregg is an optimist, as well as a realist. His lifetime of work with indigenous cultures, combined with his scholarship in science and ancient traditions, gives him reason to believe in our ability to transform in a healthy way. To get to that point, however, we must be honest with ourselves. When the facts are clear, our choices become obvious and something beautiful happens. And it’s the power of this simple truth that is the basis for Resilience from the Heart. Join Gregg on this intimate journey as he unlocks the mystery of the world’s extremes . . . to reveal the power to thrive in life!

I know that most men, including those at ease with the problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives. Joseph Ford quoting Tolstoy (Gleick, 1987) We are used to thinking that natural objects have a certain form and that this form is determined by a characteristic scale. If we magnify the object beyond this scale, no new features are revealed. To correctly measure the properties of the object, such as length, area, or volume, we measure it at a resolution finer than the characteristic scale of the object. We expect that the value we measure has a unique value for the object. This simple idea is the basis of the calculus, Euclidean geometry, and the theory of measurement. However, Mandelbrot (1977, 1983) brought to the world's attention that many natural objects simply do not have this preconceived form. Many of the structures in space and processes in time of living things have a very different form. Living things have structures in space and fluctuations in time that cannot be characterized by one spatial or temporal scale. They extend over many spatial or temporal scales.

Essay from the year 2016 in the subject Philosophy - General Essays, Eras, grade: A, , course: Psychology, language: English, abstract: As the world approached the year 2012, controversy theorists made significant impacts on what people would expect, among them was the end of the world as humanity has known it. The actual event that will erase life from the planet remained a subject of debate; to same an asteroid would strike the earth while others proposed ideas of mystical proportions. As 21/12/2012 came closer, humanity was prepared for what it might bring with it. To people’s surprise, the day passed like any other with no noticeable uniqueness. Although the Mayan calendar ended, its prediction of the end of the world did not become physically accurate. However, a new understanding of the year 2012 begun to surface. In the book “Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age”, Braden Gregg comes up with a reasoning that the old world ended and a new world started, not in the physical form of ending, but in form time.

This groundbreaking book presents a new perspective on three of cosmology’s essential questions: What came before the Big Bang? What is the source of order in our universe? And what cosmic future awaits us? Penrose shows how the expected fate of our ever-accelerating and expanding universe—heat death or ultimate entropy—can actually be reinterpreted as the conditions that will begin a new “Big Bang.” He details the basic principles beneath our universe, explaining various standard and non-standard cosmological models, the fundamental role of the cosmic microwave background, the paramount significance of black holes, and other basic building blocks of contemporary physics. Intellectually thrilling and widely accessible, Cycles of Time is a welcome new contribution to our understanding of the universe from one of our greatest mathematicians and thinkers.

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Miscellaneous, grade: A, Atlantic International University, course: SEMINAR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT I, language: English, abstract: This book Fractal Time by Braden is fascinating. The author centers his analysis on the year 2012, which many people gave interpretation to. An interpretation that consisted of seeing that year as the end of the world. Besides, that way of viewing things for the year 2012 was a confusion of events. At least Braden wrote the book before the coming of that year, which proves that the explanations he gives in his book are trustful. When Braden works on the year 2012, his focus is about the cycles of times. Cycles of times that can occur in our day-to-day life and are more likely to repeat after many years. According to the author we have to approach this year the best way possible. To convey his message, he talks about 20 times codes that are developed in the book. Time code 1 says that we are living the completion of a 58,185-year-long cycle of time- a world age that the ancient Maya calculated would end the winter of the solstice on December 21, 2012. We are living the end of time, not the end of the world as a lot people predicted, but the end of a world age. For example, the present world age began in 3114 B.C. and will end in A.D. 2012. Time code 2 states that our ancestors recorded their experience of the last end of time showing beyond a reasonable doubt that the close of one world age is the beginning of the next, and not the end of the world. Now, the question might be: what is the meaning of the end of world age? Those who came before us knew the end of the time was coming, they knew because it always does. Accordingly, Braden asserts that every 5,125 years, the Earth and our solar system reach a place in their journey through the heavens that mark the end of such a time cycle. Only five generations in the last 26,000 years have experienced the shift of world ages. We will be the sixth. The only way to arrive at the light of the next cycle is to finish the darkness of this one. Many themes are developed in Braden’s book. I have selected those I thought to be more appealing. The first issue I will discuss are cycles (time cycles) that repeat, and then I shall debate the 20-year curse of American presidents. The last discussion will be the identification of cycles of nature in our lives.
