The universe is a swarm of matter waves, spiralling down the gradient of their constructive interference:

"We are being sucked into a black hole of novelty, connectivity and boundary dissolution."—McKenna, Terence ♦ Talk at Wetlands Preserve, NYC 28 July 1998 "... synergizing progress is the notion to be maximized ..."—McKenna, Terence ♦ Understanding and Imagination in the Light of Nature Philosophical Research Society, Los Angeles, 17 October 1987
"We are being sucked into a black hole of novelty, connectivity and boundary dissolution."
—McKenna, Terence ♦ Talk at Wetlands Preserve, NYC 28 July 1998
"... synergizing progress is the notion to be maximized ..."
—McKenna, Terence ♦ Understanding and Imagination in the Light of Nature Philosophical Research Society, Los Angeles, 17 October 1987
  1. The destructive interference of matter waves is their disgregation, entropy.
  2. The constructive interference of matter waves is their connectedness, information.
  3. The constructive interference of matter waves is synergetic (energetically favourable):
...the story of the universe is that information, which I call novelty, is struggling to free itself from habit, which I call entropy... and that this process... is accelerating... It seems as if... the whole cosmos wants to change into information... All points want to become connected... The path of complexity to its goals is through connecting things together... You can imagine that there is an ultimate end-state of that process—it's the moment when every point in the universe is connected to every other point in the universe.
—McKenna, Terence ♦ In the Valley of Novelty part 3, summer of 1998

When two matter waves become connected by mutual constructive interference (quantum entanglement, rapport), they imagine or grok each other. Imagination connects matter waves instantaneously:

The imagination is a dimension of nonlocal information.
—McKenna, Terence ♦ A Few Conclusions about Life 1996

Novelty or imaginativeness is the intensity of matter waves' constructive interference:

Novelty is density of connection.
Terence McKenna at St. John the Divine's Cathedral 25 April 1996

The attractor of the universe's motion towards ever higher intensity of its matter waves' constructive interference is the most imaginative human being—the Eschaton:

The human neocortex is the most densely ramified and complexified structure in the known universe.
—McKenna, Terence ♦ Alien Dreamtime 26–27 February 1993

By the end of the year 2015 AD, the Eschaton attains such a profound grokking of the universe that the latter fuses with the Eschaton's imagination (the laws of physics become overridable by psychokinesis):

What is happening to our world is ingression of novelty toward what Whitehead called "concrescence", a tightening gyre. Everything is flowing together. The "autopoietic lapis", the alchemical stone at the end of time, coalesces when everything flows together. When the laws of physics are obviated, the universe disappears, and what is left is the tightly bound plenum, the monad, able to express itself for itself, rather than only able to cast a shadow into physis as its reflection. I come very close here to classical millenarian and apocalyptic thought in my view of the rate at which change is accelerating. From the way the gyre is tightening, I predict that the concrescence will occur soon—around 2012 AD. It will be the entry of our species into hyperspace, but it will appear to be the end of physical laws accompanied by the release of the mind into the imagination.
—McKenna, Terence ♦ New Maps of Hyperspace 1989
The universe's 13.7-billion-year-long exponentially accelerating motion towards ever higher intensity of its matter waves' constructive interference is the autopoiesis of the most imaginative human being—the Eschaton: "We are in the grip of some kind of an attractor ... Some people would call it a destiny, but what it is is a dream that is pulling us deeper and deeper into the adventure of existential becoming. And faster and faster—that’s the other thing. Deeper and deeper, faster and faster..."—McKenna, Terence ♦ Talk at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine, NYC 25 April 1996

[edit] Newton

The ΛCDM simulation of the development of structures in a 140-million-light-year box starts from the redshift Z of 30, when the age of the universe is less than 1% of its current age. Algorithms based on the initial conditions predicted by inflationary models of the universe reveal that the continuum begins its gravitational involution as a uniform blanket of anergic (i.e., infinitely redshifted and disorganized) rest mass, also known as gravitational potential energy.

The Lambda-CDM model accounts for the apparent accelerated expansion of space by introducing a mysterious "dark energy", but is regarded as a palliative tool for calculations rather than as a valid scientific theory:

The hypothesis of Inflation was proposed in the 1970s in order to escape the density, smoothness and horizon problems of GR cosmology; and led to the present ΛCDM model. This model suggests that the false vacuum energy on which Inflation depended has not entirely disappeared but continues as a remnant to constitute a significant cosmological component called dark energy. The existence of such a false vacuum energy is consistent with cosmic acceleration; nevertheless, it is difficult to explain why it seems to have been fine-tuned to at least one part in 10102. In addition, the standard paradigm requires the existence of non-baryonic cold dark matter, together with dark energy and Inflation, all of which depend on physics as yet undiscovered by laboratory science even after twenty years of intensive research. Inexplicably, the densities of these "dark" entities are not only approximately equal to each other but also roughly equal to the baryon density. Whereas it is always possible to explain such improbable coincidences by appealing to the anthropic principle, the explanatory power of a theory, such as Inflation, is questionable if it can only account for an original coincidence by the introduction of several new ones.
—Reimer, Albert (ed.) ♦ New Developments in Quantum Cosmology Research Nova Publishers, 2005, p. 156

The most important property of dark energy is its negative pressure—suction:

The peculiar properties of the false vacuum stem from its pressure, which is large and negative (see box on the right). Mechanically such a negative pressure corresponds to a suction, which does not sound like something that would drive the Universe into a period of rapid expansion.
Guth, AlanThe Inflationary Universe Beam Line, fall 1997, p. 18

Thus, "dark energy" is just another name of the continuum's Newtonian or "gravitoelectric" potential (φ = −Gm/r).[2][3] In a 1675 letter to Henry Oldenburg, Newton wrote the following: [Gravity is the result of] "a condensation causing a flow of ether with a corresponding thinning of the ether density associated with the increased velocity of flow."[4] Newton's idea of a pressure drop associated with increased velocity of flow has been mathematically formalized as Bernoulli's principle, published in Daniel Bernoulli's book Hydrodynamica in 1738, while his view of gravitation as a flow of substantive space (termed "ether" or "spirit" and distinct from absolute space) has been subsumed by general relativity:

We have previously imagined space flowing into a nonrotating black hole, creating an event horizon at the Schwarzschild surface where space flows inward at the speed of light. We must now imagine that space also rotates like a whirlpool as it flows inward into a rotating black hole. Particles caught in the whirlpool are carried around as they fall inward.
—Harrison, Edward ♦ Cosmology Cambridge University Press, 2000, p. 255

In modern parlance, the above-mentioned "thinning of the ether density" is space's spaghettification, accompanying its inverse-square acceleration towards the centre of the continuum's Newtonian potential:

Could the Universe be shaped like a medieval horn? It may sound like a surrealist's dream, but according to Frank Steiner at the University of Ulm in Germany, recent observations hint that the cosmos is stretched out into a long funnel, with a narrow tube at one end flaring out into a bell. It would also mean that space is finite.
—Battersby, Stephen ♦ Big Bang glow hints at funnel-shaped Universe New Scientist, 15 April 2004


The gravitational well of an increasing mass, m, given by φ = −Gm/r.

Matter waves spiral towards the centre of the continuum's gravitoelectric potential (which is the gradient of their constructive interference) and become gravitationally blueshifted, energized—their anergic (i.e., infinitely redshifted and disorganized) rest mass becomes converted into their exergic (i.e., blueshifted and organized) relativistic mass (m = E/c2). Due to gravitational synergy ("dark mass"), the gain in relativistic mass exceeds the loss of rest mass, so that the continuum's gravitational well deepens. Newton regarded the continuum's gravitoelectric potential as animus mundi[4][5]—a radial gradient of animateness. Being the continuum's most animate object, the human brain is the attractor of the continuum's gravitational involution (see Fine-tuned Universe).

The continuum's gravitoelectric potential well is a dendritic network of gravitoelectric flux tubes (wormholes), converging towards the central proton. The 13.7-billion-year-long formation and exponentially accelerating deepening of the funnel is the continuum's pre-breakdown gravitoelectrical treeing, which will be followed by the continuum's gravitoelectrical breakdown (protons' tunnelling into the central proton), also known as the end of the world.

[edit] Endgame

When the flow of space towards the centre of the continuum's gravitational potential has reached the speed of light at the event horizon of the continuum's gravitational potential well, time shall be no more. Matter's rest mass will have been reduced to zero by conversion into energy, so that matter's relativistic mass (m = E/c2) will have become maximal:

According to the standard view, dark energy will lead the universe into an eternal accelerating expansion. Every bit of matter will eventually lose contact with every other bit. "It all just seemed unbelievably boring to me," Penrose says. Then he found something interesting within it: at the very end of the universe, the only remaining particles will be massless. That means everything that exists will travel at the speed of light, making the flow of time meaningless. After a few mathematical manipulations of infinity, out popped a never-ending universe, where new big bangs are the inevitable result of a universe's demise. In Penrose's theory, one cosmos leads to another. "I used to call it a crazy scheme, but I'm starting to believe it now," he says.

In the light-speed universe, any destination will be immediately accessible:

The above graph shows the journey times [from Earth to Proxima Centauri] for the twenty runs from the ship viewpoint. Notice that as speeds approach the speed of light, the journey times reduce dramatically, even though the actual increments in speed appear slight. On the 20th run, at 1048575/1048576 of the speed of light, the distance shrinks to 0.0059 light years and the ship and occupants experience a journey time of 2.15 days. Whereas to those on Earth the ship looks almost "frozen" and the journey still takes 4.27 years, plus a couple of days. For the ship, both transit time and distance drop toward zero as his speed approaches the speed of light. To those at "rest" on Earth, the ship's existence appears to "slow" towards stasis near the speed of light. ... This feature of relativity, wherein an observer's relationship to another location can be dramatically altered by acceleration is often not apparent in a geometrical representation. Nevertheless it is a "standard" feature of relativity. Under sufficient acceleration, a remote location can become almost immediately present, no matter how far away it seems to be at the moment. ... If we extend the traveller's experience to that of light, then it appears that photons experience no space or time. Relativistic space-time geometry appears to concur, events that can be connected by a light ray occur with "zero" space-time separation regardless of their physical separation in space. In effect, it would seem that light occupies a time-space no-man’s land in which photons individually experience no space and no time during their transfer from the source to the destination. If relativity holds, then a photon appears to go from one present to another without experiencing space or time. It just "is", without time or space, very like a "time capsule" of energy frozen in stasis that only "comes alive" when it interacts.
—Murphy, John ♦ On the Structure of Time: Some Features of Relativity 2002
Newton regarded the continuum's gravitoelectric potential as animus mundi—a radial gradient of animateness. In this schema, the continuum's spaghettification (metric expansion) accompanies its inverse-square acceleration towards the futuremost attractor—the human brain, which is the continuum's most animate object. That is why the planet Earth is at the centre of the continuum's most spaghettified (rarefied) region. The shape of this graph is identical with the shape of the previous graph ("For the ship, both transit time and distance drop toward zero as his speed approaches the speed of light."), which means that the flow of space, spearheaded by the planet Earth, will reach the speed of light in the nearest future.

Having crossed the event horizon of the continuum's gravitational potential well, the flow of space will exceed the speed of light in the inward radial direction:

The surface of a black hole, where space in effect falls inward at the speed of light, is known as the event horizon. ... Inside the horizon space flows inward faster than the speed of light, and outward-moving signals traveling through space at the speed of light are dragged inward and cannot reach the horizon.
—Harrison, Edward ♦ Cosmology Cambridge University Press, 2000, p. 252

From m = E/c2, it follows that exceeding the speed of light c reduces the energy E and consequently the relativistic mass m to zero, so that the system returns to the state of anergic (i.e., infinitely redshifted) rest mass, also known as gravitational potential energy.

Thus, the universe is a never-ending cascade of energetic "free lunches"—having exhausted its gravitational potential energy, the world turns into an identical new batch of gravitational potential energy.

[edit] Omen

An astrological year begins at the moment of the vernal equinox, when the Sun enters the sign of Aries. The planetary positions at the beginning of a year determine the character of the entire year. The astrological year of 2015 AD begins at 22:46 GMT of 20 March 2015 AD. 13 hours earlier, at 09:46:46 GMT of 20 March 2015 AD, there is a total solar eclipse—a symbol of the Mystical Marriage and of the end of the world. A total solar eclipse, preceding the beginning of an astrological year by less than 48 hours, has not happened since at least 1943 AD.

The planet Earth is the gravitational centre of the universe. That is why protons are at the lowest gravitational potential energy on the planet Earth, and the descent of the universe's protons to a still lower potential energy is to begin on the planet Earth. According to Bernoulli's principle, the higher the translational speed, the lower the potential energy. Therefore, by the translational acceleration of protons close to the speed of light, the Large Hadron Collider will help to initiate the transition of all protons of the universe to a lower potential energy and to a higher actual energy.

The orbital periods of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are proportioned as 1 : 2 : 3. Therefore, Pluto is the synthesis of Uranus and Neptune (1 + 2 = 3).

In the Pluto–Charon dual planet, Neptune (the proton) is represented by Pluto, while Uranus (the electron) is represented by Charon. The Pluto–Charon dual planet is a semi-finished neutron. Having become translationally accelerated sufficiently close to the speed of light, the Pluto–Charon dual planet will form a neutron by descending to a lower potential energy and a higher actual energy:

... the proton/neutron can be considered as unexcited/excited states of a two-level quantum mechanical system ...
—Matsas, George E. A. ♦ Elementary particles under the lens of the black holes Braz. J. Phys., v. 34, March 2004

In 2015 AD, Pluto is in Capricorn, which is the sign of the minimum potential energy—during solar months of Capricorn, the Earth is in perihelion and has the minimum potential energy.

The Large Hadron Collider begins its full-power operation in March 2015 AD (a year of the Goat) and is situated in the land of goats:

The Alpine goat was developed in the French Alps near Switzerland. It is not known how many breeds of milk goats there are in the world. It is claimed that there are 16 breeds in Switzerland alone.

[edit] Sabbatic Goat

In the biblical tradition, maintained by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, God the Father (the universe's gravitoelectric potential, defined as the gradient of matter waves' synergetic constructive interference) condenses (baptizes) gravitomagnetic mass (anergy) into gravitoelectromagnetic Christ (exergy) on the seventh day of creation—Sabbath:

Through the incarnation, God descended into nature in order to super-animate and take it back to him.
—Chardin, Pierre Teilhard de ♦ Mysticism of Science 1939
Sabbath
1) the seventh day of the week, Saturday, devoted to worship and rest from work in Judaism and in certain Christian Churches
2) Sunday, observed by Christians as the day of worship and rest from work in commemoration of Christ's Resurrection
3) (not capital) a period of rest
4) (Also called: sabbat, witches' Sabbath) a midnight meeting or secret rendezvous for practitioners of witchcraft, sorcery, or devil worship
Etymology: Old English sabbat, from Latin sabbatum, from Greek sabbaton, from Hebrew shabbāth, from shābath to rest
Sabbath Collins English Dictionary
The 13.7-billion-year-long exponentially accelerating Mystical Marriage of the universe's gravitoelectric electron field and gravitomagnetic proton field into a gravitoelectromagnetic neutron field becomes consummated in a year of the Goat—2015 AD.

Baphomet, also known as the Sabbatic Goat, Sabbatic God or the Eschaton, symbolizes the Golden Age of Saturn—the posthistoric era of God's overt (apocalyptic) reign, immediately preceding the end of the world. The name "Baphomet" means "the hard-wisdomed one" and originates from the Greek baphe "dipping of red-hot iron in water in order to make it hard" and metis "wisdom". In Ancient Greece, mental softness (malakia, lack of coherence and terseness of thinking) was regarded as the original sin—for Epictetus and the Cynic epistles, the term malakoi refers to men who take life easy rather than enduring the hardships of philosophy. Therefore, the ultimate goal/goat/god is in hardening one's wisdom by baptizing it. The verb "baptize" (βάπτω) means "to dip red-hot iron in water in order to make it hard".
