The spiritual community of the world has for some time now heralded the idea of living in the present moment and to “Be Here Now.” This ideal, of not mulling over the past or constantly focusing on what is to come makes perfect sense as long as you and the world has the wind on the back and is evolving forward. But what about when this no longer is the case and it feels like in some profound sense the world and you are no longer moving forward? Then it may be necessary to get a grasp of exactly what drives the evolution of humanity in order to find a successful way out of an established time-line. This is typically what happens when you are entering a dark age, where the light is not as easily accessible as in a light age. One of the most typical characteristics of a dark age is that people are not automatically moving forward. In Dark Age things come to a halt and I think many can relate to this at the current time.
So what is a “Dark Age”? What is its origin and how does it differ from an age of light? These are questions that cannot be dealt with adequately from the ideal of living in the present moment, but to have answers requires studying the time-lines of evolution going from the past to the future sometimes in a long perspective. Such a study is necessary if we come to a dead end and want to find a time-line that allow us and the world at large to move forward. In my own view the only time-lines that allow us to get a full understanding of the evolution of consciousness and how this manifests in the present world are those that go back to the calendar of the ancient Maya. In contrast to for instance common astrology, these evolutionary time-lines are not just repeated cycles, but actually have directions and are going somewhere actually towards infinity. Moreover, these time-lines are not based on man-made phenomena, but are inherent in Creation. They go back to the origin of this creation, when neither stars, nor planets or human beings existed and through this we can have some guarantee that they are related to its very purpose. Naturally, at the present time human beings are needed to interpret this purpose, but the time-lines themselves are not human creations and so they have a deep significance, which goes beyond whatever particular interests human individuals may have.
The critical point that I feel so many modern people have failed to understand is that these time-lines are not straight lines. The consciousness that creates the evolution of the universe, including that expressed through the human beings, is instead a wave form. Time, or if you like the illusion of time is created by such wave forms and so we will not be able to understand how the world evolves without taking these into account. These wave forms alternate between peaks and valleys, or if you like periods of light and darkness (which may be referred to as days or nights even if they cover much longer time periods than common days and nights). Only to the extent that there is a widespread understanding of these cosmic wave forms (which are not physical in the traditional sense) will there be a great awakening. As long as there is not an understanding of their nature, people will attempt to live their lives based on the premise that everything will or should stay the same or develop in a linear way. If it does not, many will presume that there is something wrong, while in fact the wave-like evolution of the universe is part of its design.
As a consequence of this wave-like nature, to live in the present moment only makes sense in a universe that does not undergo cosmic quantum shifts and does not evolve in a wave-like manner. In a series of books I have then also argued that the dragons, cosmic serpents, (including the Mayan/Aztec Plumed Serpent) are actually cosmic quantum waves that drive evolution and that such a world view is more true than the current one based on the idea of a linear uninterrupted progress. There is a reason that the most prominent pyramids in the Western hemisphere was dedicated to such a wave, the Plumed Serpent seen as the bringer of civilization and that Chinese parents to this day especially treasure children born in the year of the dragon. I believe the worldview based on linear progress also in today’s world is now coming to an end. In reality the periods of ups and downs (or forward movement and rest) are inherent in the way the universe is designed and not of human making. These waves are the consciousness of the universe and go back to a time when nothing physical existed.
Fig 1, The rise and fall of major empires/civilizations originating in the Mediterranean/European context as matched to the time-line of the Sixth Wave.
One such wave is shown in Figure 1, the Sixth Wave, which is mostly referred to as the Mayan Long Count. This describes the rise and fall of major empires/civilizations, and it has a lot to tell us about what is going on in the world today. This seems clear enough but the reason that the evolution of consciousness sometimes may seem more complex than what is given by such a single wave is that it is created by an interference pattern of nine different waves (or time-lines). Hence, we can never gain a complete picture of changes in this world unless we take all of these waves into account. Yet, we can analyze them one by one and then reconstruct what is happening on the level of human consciousness.
Fig 1 allows us to get a clear definition of what a dark age is. Dark Ages are the valleys between major civilizations that I have previously called nights. It should from this diagram then be clear that the dark ages are inherent features of the evolution of the universe. Despite superficial appearances they are not human creations as their timing have a cosmic origin mediated by the wave. The darkness in a dark age then does not necessarily mean a time of evil (even if there are times when humans turn them into that). Rather it is part of a pattern of death and rebirth. From Fig 1 we can then see that the most well-known example of a dark age, the time period AD 434-829 following the collapse of the West Roman empire, is just one example of a dark age. Another not so well-known, but still by historians recognized such time period is the Greek Dark ages, 1149-749 BC after the fall of Mycenaean and the Minoan cultures in the so-called Bronze Age Collapse. So maybe this tells us that if we want to understand things and have some power to influence the course of events it is a good idea to look at things in a larger perspective and that living in the present may not guide us fully to this.
Looking at the larger perspective becomes even more relevant if we notice that as of AD 2011 we ourselves are living in a dark age following the period of dominance of Western empires, notably those of Great Britain and the United States in the preceding era of light, 1617-2011. As I have argued in a couple of articles the current situation in those particular countries, and to some extent in the rest of the world is a reflection of a shift in the above time-line, and if we want to understand what is happening we will have to recognize that this time-line is a wave and not a straight line.
As I have argued earlier, part of the effect of this night in the Sixth Wave is the Covid19 pandemic, which has hit the Western hemisphere much harder than the East. Some very recent events are also fully consistent with with the decline of the West in the time-line in Fig 1. One is that the questioning of the presidential election results (not the result by itself but the questioning of it) has meant that the United States have lost much of its role as a beacon of democracy. The United States is now also abdicating much of the dominating role in the world that it held in the previous era. The Transpacific Partnership (of which the US was part), which was annulled by Trump has thus for instance now been replaced by a huge trade organization where the United States is not taking part (https://www.npr.org/2020/11/17/935322859/asia-pacific-allies-sign-huge-trade-deal-with-china-while-u-s-sits-it-out) essentially meaning that China will gain the leading role in trade in this part of the world. Similarly, the further withdrawal of troops from Iraq and Afghanistan means that the US is abdicating the role it has had in the Middle East and inviting, Russia, Turkey and/or Iran to take over. I leave aside here whether these steps were good or bad for the world and am just pointing out that things are developing in accordance with Fig 1. I think it is reasonable to expect further such abdications of the role of the United States in the immediate time to come.
Ironically then, despite the fact that Trump campaigned in 2016 under the slogan of Make America Great Again, his reign by any objective standards seems to have accomplished the very opposite. While he and his followers are mostly seeking someone other than themselves to blame for this, whether it is the democrats, China, the WHO, a global cabal or something else, I suggest that there are larger forces in play here, forces that are inherent in how the universe was designed, namely the shifts between days and nights and the ensuing evolution of consciousness.
Certainly, the ancient peoples of our planet recognized that evolution was not linear, but subject to death and rebirth and that no individual, or nation for that matter, would escape this. However, if people are not aware of the wave-like nature of evolution they will just continue to push agendas that are dead ends indefinitely expecting things to stay the same (in this case meaning that the Western dominance of the world would continue). I think the lesson from this is that the evolution of consciousness is a much more powerful force than the thoughts or desires of the human beings, and this goes for all of us. The wave-like evolution of consciousness takes it course regardless of what anybody thinks. It has a stronger power than human thoughts and this is even more so if people are unaware of how its course is designed.
However, there are as I said earlier nine different waves, or if you like time-lines, and we as humans may be in resonance with any or all of them by means of which an individual interference pattern that crafts our path in life is created. It is possible for us to make quantum jumps between such time-lines and to the extent that we do we will also make quantum jumps between different states of consciousness. This in turn influences, or even shapes the kind of thoughts that we have. I will however not here talk about all the nine waves, but only add the influence of the Seventh Wave to that of the Sixth Wave that was shown in Fig 1. The result is an interference pattern of the two waves, which is directly relevant to how things will evolve in the near future.
While the Sixth Wave above describes the ups and downs of the overall long-term evolution especially of Western civilizations, the Seventh Wave, which was activated in AD 1755 describes the evolution of several special aspects of these after this point in time. What I will focus on here are only the systems of governance and the phases of economic growth. The activation of the state of consciousness of the seventh wave has for instance led to the birth of democracy (Fig 2) and industrialism (Fig 3), phenomena which are some of its hallmarks.
Fig 2. The evolution of democracy as a function of the peaks in the Seventh Wave.
Fig 3. The evolution of the industrial economy as a function of the peaks in the Seventh Wave.
In Figures 2 and 3 there is an enormous amount of information and I will here limit the discussion to what is relevant for our current time. Hence, before the consciousness shift brought by the Seventh Wave in 1755 there were essentially no democracies in the world and for most of the timeline in Figure 1 the empires that it created were based on dominance, brutality and subjugation of the poor peasants and the slaves. Only with the activation of the Seventh Wave does a process begin when – notably in its peaks – steps are taken in the direction of increased equality, democracy and respect for the dignity of the human individual. As we can see, this is not a result of a straight line, and even if the process is complex its overall direction is quite clear so that by the end of seventh peak in 2011 only a few monarchies remain, which with the possible exception of the British and Thai are completely powerless. Inherited privileges of the nobility that used to be the norm has disappeared and republics where in principle all individuals have equal rights have replaced them. This is a result of the peaks or what you may call the periods of light in the Seventh Wave and the influence those had on human consciousness. In parallel with this development towards democracy there has also been a development towards increased globality. What in the Sixth Wave was a world of strictly separated nations has in the Seventh become a world that is integrated and where what happens in one corner of the world affects it all. This was not the case before the activation of the state of consciousness of the latter.
Similarly, before the activation of the Seventh Wave in 1755, there was no industrialism anywhere in the world based on the use of anything but muscle power. Step by step in the peaks of this wave fossil fuels and later electric and nuclear power have however come into use together with their many industrial applications. Mass production of goods, say for instance of cars, were unheard of before the shift in consciousness to the Seventh Wave had taken place. What humans may create in terms of technology is hence a direct consequence of this particular state of consciousness, but since this is something I have dealt with in books I will not detail it here. Naturally, the results of these steps forward in technological development has also been times of economic growth in contrast to the depressions that especially towards the end of the wave have been associated with the nights.
An important thing that we can see from Figures 2 and 3 is that there is a parallel between the Sixth Wave (Fig 1) and the Seventh Wave (Fig 2) in that the movement forward happens during the days. Moreover, not only the Sixth Wave, but also the Seventh Wave has its nights or dark ages, where the one that most clearly stands out in the Seventh is the one between 1932 and 1952. Hence, the rise of nationalism including fascism is something that happens especially during the nights as democracy then tends to be suppressed. Nights also tend to cause economic depressions.
I suggest that the world can now (2020) to a large extent be understood as a result of the interference pattern of these two waves and the state of consciousness this creates in the human beings. Since in both waves we are now in dark ages it is not surprising that the world at least partially now has come to a halt. On the surface this halt is of course caused by the Covid 19 pandemic, but I would at the same time argue that this would not have had the effects that it has had unless it fitted into the consciousness field that these two waves combined have created.
So what does all of this mean for us now? Well, we can understand why Western dominance of the world now seems to be coming to an end. We can also understand why especially after 2016 there has been a rise in nationalism and distrust in democracy among large groups especially in those countries, which has led to a concomitant rise of political strongmen acting nearly as dictators. This is in marked contrast to the time-period 1992-2011 when democracy seemed to spread everywhere. Again, the time-line of the seventh state of consciousness is not a straight line but a wave.
Fig 4. The current wave period in the Seventh Wave.
But what can be said about the economic situation? To address this I think it pays to look at where we are now in the Seventh Wave more in detail (Fig 4). One thing I want the reader to notice is that midnight in the current wave period 2011-2031 is not in 2020, but the year 2021. Thus, if there will be a Great Reset this will rather take place towards the end of 2021 than in 2020, although many have thought of 2020 as the critical year. When it comes to how the world economy has developed, this, as I mentioned has been in depression during the nights. This then should be true also for our current wave period even if this only came about in 2020 and may be even more troubling in 2021.
Something that I believe may set the current depression apart from depressions in earlier nights is that the current crisis with all clarity has demonstrated the fictitiousness of the value of money. Even if money in the present world is power it really has no substance and just amounts to digits in bank amounts or elsewhere. In the current situation the United States has for instance simply printed up trillions of dollars in support of its population during the Covid19 pandemic and similar actions have been taken in Europe. Rightly so I think as also fictitious money may have power. It may however also have begun to dawn on many that money can be generated out of thin air if the political will is there. What determines for what and how much money shall be printed is simply power.
Yet, the ability to print money on a large scale will only be possible in a country that maintains global power that as I pointed out above is now highly questionable regarding the US, which holds the world’s primary currency. For this reason, and the convergence of the processes I discussed above in the Sixth and Seventh Waves, I think we have very strong reasons to expect a collapse of the US dollar in 2021 and its replacement with something else. This among other things is what I refer to as the Great Reset of 2021. A change in administration will hardly alter this perspective. Exactly how the Great Reset 2021 will play out is unclear, at least to me, but I think I have outlined the evolution of consciousness leading up to it. I admit that I may not be using the Great Reset in the same sense as its originator Klaus Schwab. Yet, regardless of political views it seems clear that after this pandemic the world will need to be reset in order to adapt to an entirely different interference pattern created by the waves. Hopefully, this reset will happen in accordance with the interest of the large masses of people and not those of IT tycoons, but this still remains to be seen. It may thus be time for everyone to think about what such a reset should mean. I feel this should be done in the light of the fact that from September 6, 2021 (midnight) and onward there will be a climb to July 16, 2031 (dawn), which holds the potential to generate a world where democracy is again cherished and there is global collaboration to tackle the world’s problems.
