Invisible Landscapes - a book on Mind ,Hallucinogens and I Ching (some major events)

Earth Reborn
Its not only the philosophy of China but including the science and statecraft who have never ceased to draw from the spring of wisdom in the I Ching,the Book of Changes -- I Ching in Chinese (which has been used for more than 5000 years as an aid to making decisions, predicting the future, etc. )-- an unquestionably one of the most important books in the world's literature. Its origin goes back to mythical antiquity, and it has occupied the attention of the most eminent scholars of China down to the present day, and it is not surprising that this alone, among all the Confucian classics, escaped the great burning of the books under Ch'in Shih Huang Ti
According to Ethnobotanists and fractal time experts Terrence and Dennis McKenna " things will keep changing at a faster rate, we are already on the verge of cloning humans and close to using nanotechnology to create atomic size mini-machines. Maybe there will come a time when the rate of change will reach such a speed that change is all that will exist., and they present their ideas in Invisible Landscape: Mind Hallucinogens and the I Ching (1993).The McKenna brothers arrived at the 2012 end date by using fractals. By matching the levels of the pattern with key periods in history, they determined it would fit best if the end of the time scale was December 22, 2012. This is the only point in which the level of novelty reaches its maximum, and everything that happens is new. Change feeds upon itself like nano-machines converting every atom in the universe into gold.Few calculations ( though all calculations are rough, but not inaccurate) as mentioned in Invisible LandscapeMind, a book on Mind, Hallucinogens, and the I Ching (1993) They discovered a base period of roughly 67 years while employing a complicated mathematicaL and methodology to calculate the dates of major events .

2012 minus 67 years = 1945, a year of great change
2012 minus 4,300 years (67x64) = 2300 BC, the beginning of historical time
2012 minus 275,000 years (4300 x 64) = the emergence of Homo sapiens
2012 minus 18 million years (275,000 x 64) = the height of the age of mammals
2012 minus 1.3 billion years = the beginning of life on our planet
