Overview

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.

Let me begin this review by stating unequivocally that I very much enjoy reading Gregg Braden's books and listening to his CDs and interviews on such programs as Coast to Coast AM and the Hay House live online events. I own most of his books and CDs, including now Fractal Time. This is a very good book. I have heard about the issues relating to 2012, the Mayan calendar, etc for several years now and never gave them much thought. I was dismissive of the whole thing, but I decided to let Gregg's new book be my first foray into this topic and I am glad that I did. I was amazed to learn from this book the important scientific data behind the issues relating to 2012 and how various cultures and religions have classified the different ages of world time. Gregg has a very good ability of simplifying these otherwise complex issues. He is also very good at distilling the writings and insights of other authors and presenting them to his readers in a concise manner. If you have had an interest in 2012 but have not yet looked into it, let this be the book you begin with! But I do have some questions: not about this book per se but about Gregg Braden. I believe it would be well for him to share with his readers a bit more of his background and qualifications to write and speak on the subjects that he does. The scant biographical information one finds on Gregg's web site and book covers tell you that he has previously worked as a computer systems designer for some well known companies. He also states that he has "...searched ancient texts to uncover their timeless secrets" and by implication the reader is left with the impression that these "ancient texts" are from such exotic places as Peru and Tibet. So my questions are these: what are Gregg's qualifications to read, translate, and "uncover" secrets in ancient Tibetan, Mayan, Peruvian, Coptic, and Greek manuscripts? Being a computer systems designer does not qualify anyone to read Tibetan. Does Gregg have a bachelor or masters or doctoral degree from a university? If so, what were his areas of concentration that qualify him to write on the topics on which he claims to have some measure of authoritative knowledge?

Gregg Braden has not let me down. The book is interesting enough to make me anxious to get back to it. The repeats in nature always intriqued me as a child, the coming and going of leaves, plants, flowers the night sky, and even seeing pictures of the past, that are reminiscent of the present. It is easy reading even if you are not mathmatical, as I am not. I loved the book, and recommend it to all spiritual people who believe that there is more to life than we can observe, or know from scientific experiment. The knowing from within is answered as you grow with the mind of Gregg Braden.

This book was such a page turner for me. It starts by saying that this isn't a scientific research book. He says it is based on research and written for the layman. The earthcycles section was amazing. The ancient civiliations that we now have evidence of that are much older than science and history taught us in our school years was eye opening. It was much more than i expected.

Gregg Braden has my loyal readership! I love how he makes science so easily understandable. This is another fantastic read!

This book is good. It added more information to the topic of 2012 but not encompasing all the theories and facts. It is good for a filler of more information and gives a different academic window to 2012.

Fractal Time by Gregg Braden Gregg Braden states that we are living at the end of a world age - a 5,125 year-long cycle of time - that is predicted to end on December 21, 2012 by the ancient Mayans. This is not the end of the world; just one world age ending to begin the next one. The author backs this up with stories and legends from ancient civilizations who supposedly knew that the end of time was coming or have survived the end of the last world age. There have been cycles before us, at least four other world ages that both began and ended. But I wonder if these accounts are true or just made up. Because if those people who are far not as advanced as us are able to predict the future, shouldn't we, with our technology and information, know more than they do? If those stories are not accurate, then the whole idea of world ages would crumple with no evidence to back it up. We don't know that a world age is going to end on the winter solstice of 2012 because we don't have solid proof and we can't go back in time to find out. The author says that the Time Code template shows that the changes happening now are what we should expect for the end of a world age. The human, Earth, and celestial conditions of today are similar to conditions of the past in which a world age has ended. In what way are they similar? Today's conditions are filled with global warming, failing economies, drug wars, poverty and disease, dictating governments, ect. How are these conditions similar to those before us? Did they experience these things too? If they did and survived, what advice do they have for us in the 21st century? The author also talks about how we can think of time as something that follows the same cycles that dictate the rest of the universe. Nature works in patterns, and so does time. So if we know where we are in a cycle of time, we would know what to expect when the cycle repeats. There is a program called the Time Code Calculator that can show us when the conditions for an event from the past might take place again, not the event itself. For example, today I failed my math test. The Time Code Calculator predicts that the conditions for when I might next fail a test are next Tuesday. But I didn't fail the test that Tuesday because I studied extra hard, for the Time Code Calculator told me that I could have potentially failed that test. So you see, the Time Code Calculator could come in very handy. It can tell us when the conditions for an event are present so we can be prepared for it ahead of time. But what if was just a hoax? In the book, Gregg Braden offered several examples such as when might the conditions for a surprise attack against the U.S. might appear. And then he listed out the conditions or events that happened around that date that were related to his seed event. But what if all those dates were just a coincidence? When Braden listed out the conditions, they didn't necessarily fell on the exact date. I think then that the Time Code Calculator would be useless because don't you want to know the exact date for when something could happen, instead of just the general vicinity, which could extend from days, to weeks, to months.
