[edit] Involution

The universe is a swarm of matter waves, spiralling down the gradient of their synergetic 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] Timewave Zero

From the minimum total potential energy principle, it follows that the universe's quark-gluon plasma initially has the maximal (zero) potential energy and the minimal (zero) actual energy. The primordial quark-gluon plasma has an infinitely big Compton wavelength and is identical with empty tridimensional space. 13.7 billion years ago, the continuous quark-gluon plasma split into positive-energy (i.e., centrifugally rotational) gravitomagnetic protons (bags of borrowed angular momentum) and the negative-energy (i.e., centripetally translational) gravitoelectric vacuum (angular-momentum deficit) between them:

It seems that the energy density inside a proton, due to the kinetic energy of the quarks, is large enough to flip the vacuum there into a different kind of state, which we call the "simple vacuum," in which the quarks can move freely. This little hole in the physical vacuum is called a "bag," and a mathematical model based on a simple bag has had a considerable success in explaining the spectrum of masses of the observed elementary particles. ...
In the early Universe, in the first few microseconds after the big bang, the energy density was high enough to keep the whole Universe in a "simple vacuum," and quarks and gluons would have moved freely except for scattering. We call this state a quark-gluon plasma. As the Universe cooled, it flipped into the state of the present physical vacuum, and the quarks would have grouped themselves into the protons and neutrons that we observe.
—Willis, Bill ♦ Collisions to melt the vacuum New Scientist, 6 October 1983

The proton is essentially an energetic revolving credit facility. When the proton self-gravitationally shrinks to a more negative gravitational potential energy (i.e., to a deeper energy debt), it borrows some positive energy (angular momentum) into its current account. However, due to its rotational centrifugality, the positive energy (angular momentum) gradually becomes radiated (dissipated) into the ambient space. When the current account’s balance decreases to 50 percent of its level after the latest replenishment, the proton replenishes it again by shrinking to a still more negative gravitational potential energy (i.e., to a still deeper energy debt). By employing incremental borrowing, the proton increases its positive energy (angular momentum) and eventually turns into the neutron:

... 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 accordance with the inverse-square law, the proton's self-gravitation is inversely proportional to the square of the proton's radius, which is why the proton's self-gravitational collapse into the neutron exponentially accelerates. Being the hydrogen nucleus, the proton is analogous to a hydrogen star, self-gravitationally condensing into a neutron star:

For a 20 MSun star:
  • Main sequence lifetime ~ 10 million years
  • Helium burning (3-α) ~ 1 million years
  • Carbon burning ~ 300 years
  • Oxygen burning ~ 2/3 year
  • Silicon burning ~ 2 days
  • The iron core's collapse into a temporary neutron star[1] ~ a few milliseconds[2]
Gene Smith's Astronomy Tutorial University of California, San Diego

As the proton condenses, its potential energy (latent angular momentum, whose intensity is below the Planck quantum of action) becomes actualized (intensified to the Planck quantum of action). The centrifugal force, exerted by the actualized angular momentum, postpones the proton's gravitational collapse to a smaller radius until the moment when the proton has radiated away 50 percent of the angular momentum, actualized by collapsing to the current radius, and compensated this loss by the synergetic rearrangement (angular-momentum bonds, derivatives, etc.) of the remaining 50 percent of the actual angular momentum into a Saturnian ring (a "global economy"):

Since a circular orbit has the lowest energy for a given angular momentum, the gas can only sink further into the gravitational potential and accrete onto the primary, if it can lose some angular momentum. Finding the process by which this is done in real systems is called the angular momentum problem. We have illustrated it here with the example of mass transfer in a binary, but the same problem arises for the formation of stars from interstellar clouds or the accretion of gas onto the massive black holes in AGN. In these cases, the initial angular momentum due to random motion of the gas clouds is many orders of magnitude larger than can be accommodated by the accreting object. Rather than accreting directly, the gas forms a disk, acting like a temporary "parking orbit".
—Murdin, P. (ed.) ♦ Encyclopaedia of Astronomy and Astrophysics ♦ 2002

By the end of the stage of an iron core (peak fusion—the breakeven point between fusion and fission,[3] which is analogous to Peak Oil, reached when 50 percent of the initial resource has been extracted), the shrinking proton actualizes 50 percent of its initial potential energy, retains a half of the actualized energy, and radiates away another half of the actualized energy.

The iron core's collapse into a neutron star condenses the remaining 50 percent of the proton's initial potential energy (bound entropy, anergy) into actual energy (free entropy, exergy):

A complex series of events, whose details are still not completely understood, leads to a rapid collapse, followed by a violent explosion, during which the supernova releases more energy in 1 year—1052 ergs—than it had given off in its entire lifetime as a star.
A Long-range Program in Space Astronomy NASA, July 1969, p. 5

The collapsing iron core retains a half of the actualized energy and radiates away another half of the actualized energy. The resultant neutron contains, in actualized form, 50 percent of the proton's initial potential energy:

Similarly, it can be easily proved that, upon the establishment of equilibrium, at least half the released potential energy is transformed into the kinetic energy of rotation (the remaining part being transformed into heat).
—Bliokh, K. Yu.; Kontorovich, V. M. ♦ On the Evolution and Gravitational Collapse of a Toroidal Vortex 2003, p. 5

The neutron's negative potential energy (self-gravitation) is at 100 percent, while the neutron's positive actual energy (angular momentum) is at 50 percent (because another 50 percent has been radiated away). The neutron does not implode because its angular momentum is not chaotic as in the primordial proton, but is synergetically arranged into a Saturnian ring, so that the neutron's effective angular momentum is at 100 percent:

Then in 1963, Roy Kerr, a New Zealand mathematician, found a solution of Einstein’s equations for a rotating black hole, which had bizarre properties. The black hole would not collapse to a point (as previously thought) but into a spinning ring (of neutrons). The ring would be circulating so rapidly that centrifugal force would keep the ring from collapsing under gravity.
—Kaku, Michio ♦ The Physics of Time Travel

In Boltzmann's definition, bound entropy is a measure of the number of possible microscopic states (or microstates) of a system in thermodynamic equilibrium, consistent with its macroscopic thermodynamic properties (or macrostate). Potential (quasi-irrotational, virtual, spiritual) states are microstates, whereas actual (rotational, real, material) states are macrostates. Therefore, the progressive condensation of bound entropy (anergy) into free entropy (exergy) is accompanied by the system's ephemeralization—ever-lesser spiritual efforts cause ever-bigger material changes, which eventually allows of psychokinesis. Humanity can become capable of psychokinesis only by condensing into a single couple of superhumans.

Having reached the point of zero marginal returns of binding energy from deepening the energetic interindebtedness of its iron nuclei, the star’s core shrinks to a smaller radius by fusing the iron nuclei into a single more sophisticated nucleus—a neutron star:

In some ways a neutron star can be conceived of as a gigantic nucleus.
Neutron star Britannica

Analogously, having reached the point of zero increase in the nominal GDP from $1 of new debt, humanity condenses into a single couple of superhumans.

The true Timewave Zero. In 2015 AD, humanity condenses into a single couple of superhumans. While increasing the total debt by $1 provides an at least $0.01 growth in the nominal GDP (immature debt), the system can grow by exponentially increasing the amount of new borrowings. When the growth in the nominal GDP per $1 of new debt becomes zero, refinancing the accumulated debt and interest becomes impossible, and the system implodes.

[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 whole 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 Large Hadron Collider is to be restarted 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.
All electrons, for example, are identical, being quanta of a single electron field filling all of spacetime. To each distinct species of particle corresponds a field, and vice versa. This, in a word, is the essence of quantum field theory: the natural framework for a description of relativistic quantum point-particles, explaining their corpuscular properties when detected in energy-momentum eigenstates and their wave behaviour when considering their spacetime propagation.

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. In astrology, Saturn is associated with knees, while the goat (Capricorn, ruled by Saturn) is a symbol of hardness ("hard as a goat's knees"). 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".
