About the Author
New York Times best selling author Gregg Braden is internationally renowned as a pioneer in bridging science and spirituality. Following a successful career as a Computer Geologist for Phillips Petroleum during the 1970s energy crisis, he worked as a Senior Computer Systems Designer with Martin Marietta during the last years of the Cold War. In 1991 he became The First Technical Operations Manager for Cisco Systems, where he led the development of the global support team assuring the reliability of the internet in its early days.
For more than 22 years, Gregg has searched high mountain villages, remote monasteries, and forgotten texts to uncover their timeless secrets. To date, his work has led to such paradigm-shattering books as The Isaiah Effect, The God Code, The Divine Matrix, and his most recent, Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age.
Gregg’s work has been published in 27 languages and 30 countries and shows us beyond any reasonable doubt that the key to our future lies in the wisdom of our past.

The basic premise to the book is that there are patterns to the flow of time and energy which the ancients knew and could use, an idea which I find quite interesting and agree with. I also feel quite strongly that these are critical times for the human race (and the planet), and was hoping to find something usable in this book as far as understanding these times is concerned.
Frankly, Braden falls flat. He states on page 17 that this book is not a science publication or peer-reviewed research paper. He states, however that it is well researched and documented. I must take issue with that, as he makes numerous major mistakes critical to the work. He also quite often "invokes" a source rather than using it to properly develop his point. (Read Joseph Farrell's books for an example of how to do this right.)
First off, I have major issues with taking the New Age pop garbage about Nostradamus seriously. Most of the people who write popular books about old Nostie do not bother to research his original writings or correct historical data, and many of the books about him, including those written hundreds of years ago, contain numerous factual errors. To make the (absolute) statement that Nostradamus "predicted" such things as the World Wars, the JFK assassination, and 9-11 is an outrageous distortion of fact, to put it in the kindest terms.Read more ›
Gregg takes on the conventional idea of global warming being a function of air pollution, showing that the warming and melting of the ice caps is simply a part of the cycle. He discusses the Hindu tradition of "the day of Brahman" and the "night of Brahman" and shows how these cycles are actually backed by science.
I had heard before different ideas about time being "the fourth dimension" and "motion in space" but Gregg's layman explanation bumped up my understanding of the time/space continuum considerably. I now feel I have a deeper understanding of time and how it moves in spiral cycles which create a tendency or energy potential for certain events. As an amateur astrologer who has been able to predict critical events for friends, I always warned them that the energy is coming their way and what they do with it is up to them. Gregg shares that view in this book, showing us that the cycles are not destiny--but rather opportunities.
The best part of the book is chapter 5 in which the code is given to predict your own future and understand your past, based on cycles. I was in such a hurry to learn this that I tried to do it before finishing the chapter and got confused about the process. I was wondering, why isn't this working? I could not see any significant patterns at all. Then after reading the chapter and getting more clear on the instructions, I did it again.Read more ›
The Olmec or Mayan or whoever invented the long count calendar are the ONLY ones who really understand what it is talking about. Non-Mayan speakers on a Mayan subject most often walk on thin ice or speak nonsense as often occurs in archeological circles. Regarding calendars there are also other cyclical calenderic systems from many cultures including the Chinese and their famous animal-oriented zodiac.
Example: "In addition to the 2012 winter solstice marking the end of the Mayan Great Cycle, December 21 also signals the completion of an even larger cycle: the great or precessional year that began approximately 260000 years ago."
The existence, length, and timing of the precessional year is a subject of great debate. The book is trying to say that December 21 2012 also represents the end of the cycle and the dawning of the age of Aquarius. However, no one knows in what year such a theoretical transition occurs let alone the day. According to Max Hiedel this transition to Aquarius occurred back in 498 AD. Based on other correlations it will not happen until 600 years from now. And the book does not tell you that it stole, I mean got, the idea of 2012 corresponding to age precession from John Major Jenkins which doesn't make it fact either. In fact the book lifted much of JMJs work in Galactic Alignment for this book. Anthony F.Read more ›
