Book Description

17 Mar 2009

Ancient traditions viewed 'time' as the great ripples of a galactic wave that ebb and flow as they travel throughout the universe. Late 20th century discoveries revealed that even the most complex things in nature are really simple patterns - fractals - that repeat themselves in predictable ways.

Applying the new 'laws' of fractals to the ancient waves of time, visionary scientist and bestselling author Gregg Braden proposes that everything, from the way we age to the wars between nations, are simply the returning waves of our past, with each one carrying a more powerful, amplified version of itself. Discover the great secret of our moment in history, and what we can expect as the 5000-year-cycle of the ancient Mayan calendar ends in 2012.

More About the Author

A former Senior Computer Systems Designer for Martin Marietta Aerospace, Computer geologist for Phillips Petroleum, and the Technical Operations Manager for Cisco Systems, Braden is considered a pioneer in bridging the wisdom of our past with the science, healing and peace of our future.

For more than 20 years Gregg has searched high mountain villages, remote monasteries, ancient temples, and forgotten texts to uncover their timeless secrets. His search led to the 2004 release of his paradigm-shattering book, The God Code, revealing words of the ancient message coded into the DNA of all life.

Between 1998 and 2005 Gregg's journeys into the monasteries of central Tibet revealed a forgotten form of prayer that was lost during the biblical edits of the early Christian Church. In his newest book, Secrets of the Lost Mode of Prayer, he documents this mode of prayer that has no words or outward expression, yet gives us direct access to the quantum force that connects all things.

From his groundbreaking book, Awakening to Zero Point, to the intimacy of Walking Between the Worlds and the controversy of The Isaiah Effect, Gregg's work awakens the best in each of us, inspiring our deepest passions with the tools to build a better world.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some interesting points 24 Jun 2009
The science in this book is new to me but the theory and ideas are something that I already know anyway. I think that the author has missed some links and pints in this work and this will be entirely due to his personal beliefs about life. Quite an interesting read. Glad that I bought it because it has helped me evolve some of my own ideas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting viewpoint 14 July 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Gregg Braden has done it again. This latest book, describing the process of Fractal time, fills in even more gaps about the nature of the universe. Parts of it are a little complex, but overall this is a really interesting viewpoint that shows us how patterns in life repeat themselves continuously in a harmonic process based on mathematical formulae involving the sacred 'Phi'. Highly recommended, as are all of Gregg Braden's books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this book now! 5 April 2009
If you are interested in the Mayan Calendar and what may happen to planet earth in 2012, then this book is a must read. It explains time in fractals and how we can predict the events in our own lives based on some simple mathematics. Fractal Time delivers a no-nonsense, straightforward explanation that is written is easy to understand language. Highly recommended.Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age

3.0 out of 5 stars Fractal Time 9 Nov 2009
An interesting and thought-provoking read centred around the theme of repeating natural cycles and behavioral patterns leading up to (and beyond) the Mayan 'end of the world' date of December 2012. The book is generally well written, but loses pace half way through -and fizzles out with a series of involved appendices and acknowledgments, leaving the reader somewhat 'up in the air'. It's a book suited more to those fascinated by intriguing questions, than those seeking answers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good in parts 3 Jun 2009
By expate
A bit disappointing from the author of the superlative Divine Matrix. Braden is good in his own fields, science and maths, but weaker when he has to rely on others in, say history and climate science. He has bought into the 2012 paradigm and the received wisdom on the Maya. Not everyone agrees that the "Long Count" leads to Dec 2012. And it is not true that no one knows how the Maya civilisation came into existence. He also comments on the Torah - best left to Hebrew scholars. And he has bought into the climate catastrophe mob's poor science. However, his main thesis on fractal time is impressive and he writes extremely well on his main points.

Brilliantly written, easy to understand, no scare-mongering! Probably the best book so far on 2012 and the Mayan Prophecies!

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting information about 2012 4 Nov 2009
By Iona Main Stewart TOP 500 REVIEWER
All Gregg Braden's books bear upon the larger scheme of things, esoteric messages encoded in ancient times, planetary themes such as the Shift, etc etc. This book is no exception.

It is divulged that we are rapidly approaching the end of a 5,125-year cycle of time, the end of a world age. This began in 3114 B.C. and will culminate in December 21, 2012.

Moreover, this cycle constitutes the last fifth of an even greater cycle (or world) describing "the precession of the equinoxes - our 25,625-year journey through the 12 constellations of the zodiac".

The date December 21, 2112 signifies the alignment of our Earth and the entire solar system with the "galaxy's equator" and "the heart of the Milky Way".

Braden defines "fractals" as "simple, self-similar, and repeating patterns" and it is his thesis that everything that happens in our universe occurs in repeating cycles.

This applies both to momentous world events and events in our personal lives. The appendices contain a simple method to calculate the reoccurrence of personal events or rather the reoccurrence of similar conditions in our lives to a particular seed event.

The momentous date in 2012 is not to be regarded as "the end of the world". What is occurring is not actually an event but an unfolding process. Just as life crises although seemingly horrendous actually present wonderful opportunities for growth, 2012 may prove to be the year where a global crisis forces mankind to transform to a new level of being, where we learn to allow heart-based decisions instead of those based on cold reason to take precedence.

2.0 out of 5 stars Repetition is the mother of skill 1 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
Fractal Time was recommeded to me so I bought it and listened with baited breath as it unfolded. I can honestly say that the contents could be massively reduced and put onto fewer disks. The author repeats some of the points, which to me is anoying because having an adio book means you can listen to it over and over. It becomes tedious when you hear certain points more than others. It becomes tedious when you hear certain points more than others. It becomes tedious when you hear certain points more than others. (sorry couldn't resist!lol) I would call some of the information fuzzy and not explained fully. I did, however, benefit from listening to it as there were some nuggets of info that I found revealing, espeically on the *last* disk. This is just my point of view and I wouldn't want to put anyone else off from buying it as it wasn't too bad.

I just love the way he simplifies everything and refrains from using technical explanations to explain the workings of his findings.

5.0 out of 5 stars full of fascinating information
but he does wander around a lot. the book should have been edited so that it was a quarter of the length. it would still have contained all the facts.
