many experts, scientists, artists and philosophers have reached the conclusion that the human experience is reaching some kind of ultimate climax. each person who studies this phenomenon calls this coming event by a different name, or uses different terms to describe it, but essentially they are all speaking of the same event. josé argüelles says that it is the climax of matter, jean houston calls it jump time, and ray kurzweil calls it the approaching singularity.
what is interesting about this is that numerous prophesies from ancient traditions around the world have also pointed to this time period as a time of great upheaval and change, perhaps the most important in human history. the mayans of mexico marked this time with their famous calendar. the alchemists of europe built the cross of hendaye to describe it. the qero indians of peru call it the pacha kuti and the ancient egyptians referred to it as the zep tepi or the first time. in the indo-tibetan tradition it is equated with the final throes of the kali yuga, the age of iron. each of these traditions tells us that a great transformative moment is at hand, a moment in which we have the opportunity to release old patterns and re-link ourselves with the essential rhythms and harmonies of the universe.
as we can see from these prophecies, this shift is not just limited to historical tangibles like globalisation, the internet, global warming and the destruction of the environment but is deeply embedded in almost all of the great spiritual traditions of humanity. this approaching singularity is truly the most profound event in history. everything that we know, everything that we are, is about to undergo a substantial and radical alternation.
