[edit] Involution

The universe is a swarm of matter waves, spiralling down the gradient of their synergetic (energetically favourable) 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

  1. The constructive interference of matter waves is their connectedness, information.
  2. The destructive interference of matter waves is their disgregation, entropy.
  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 2 November 2014 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] World tree

The universe involutes by the minimum total potential energy principle, or, which is the same, the maximum total synergy principle:

The universe is being pulled from the future toward a goal that is as inevitable as a marble reaching the bottom of a bowl when you release it up near the rim. If you do that, you know the marble will roll down the side of the bowl—down, down, down—until eventually it comes to rest at the lowest energy state, which is the bottom of the bowl. That’s precisely my model of human history.

  • Rotational decoherence inhibits matter waves' synergetic constructive interference. Therefore, matter waves' angular momentum is their mass (unrealized synergy, also known as potential energy).
  • Matter waves are falling to the central singularity of the black-hole continuum in a spiral, where the sum of the radial and tangential speeds is constant and equals the speed of light. That is why matter waves' radial acceleration decelerates them tangentially and thus converts their mass into energy.

Potential energy (i.e., unrealized synergy) can be either zero or negative. Actual energy (i.e., realized synergy) can be either zero or positive.

According to the minimum total potential energy principle, the continuum's matter waves were born from a state of highest (i.e., zero) gravitational potential energy (which corresponds to a uniform spatial distribution, when the gravitational potentials of matter waves cancel each other, so that the resultant gravitational potential is zero) and lowest (i.e., zero) actual energy (which implies zero frequency). Said otherwise, the newborn continuum was a uniform blanket of extremely redshifted matter waves (a primeval proton can be imagined as a slowly rotating rarefied sphere many miles across), which then began to undergo gravitational blueshifting and spaghettification into a dendritic system of cosmic filaments observed today (from the perspective of a self-gravitationally blueshifting and shrinking proton, the ambient space appears to be in the process of redshifting and metric expansion).

The gravitational potential is analogous to the electric potential with mass playing the role of charge and with the uniformity of matter waves' spatial distribution playing the role of dielectricity (because the gravitoelectric potentials of uniformly distributed matter waves cancel each other). The continuum's 13.7-billion-year-long gravitoelectrical treeing results in the formation of a dendritic hierarchy (known as the world tree, the tree of life, or the Christmas tree) of gravitoelectric flux tubes (channels of matter waves' synergetic constructive interference), spanning the entire continuum and being organized by the human brain.[1]

  • A macroquantum (such as a crystal or a human being) is an aggregate of microquanta (elementary particles).
  • Air eras (, , ): Gravitoelectrical breakdown to a lower orbit, characterized by a higher Planck quantum of action, liquidates old macroquanta and rejuvenates (redshifts) the underlying microquanta (f = E/h), which enter a state of low-intensity coherent superposition—sleep. Old macroquanta dissolve into a pregnant solution, containing a smaller number of embryos of new bigger macroquanta. During (the end of the world), all macroquanta dissolve into a single -macroquantum (a new continuum).

The continuum is a single gravitoelectromagnetic matter wave with a 13.7-billion-year interval between the initial gravitomagnetic (incoherently rotational) black-hole phase and the final gravitoelectric (radially translational) wormhole phase. In the beginning of its 13.7-billion-year life cycle, the continuum has the biggest radius and can be imagined as an extremely rarefied gravitomagnetic limaçon. Being sucked into its own deepening funnel, the limaçon undergoes gravitational contraction, which intensifies its latent rotational momentum (latent heat, aka potential energy) to the Planck quantum of action and thus turns it into overt heat, aka actual energy. The continuum is embedded, as the central proton, in the tip of the funnel of an identical larger-scale continuum. The normal-scale continuum radiates about a half of the intensified angular momentum (heat, energy) into the larger-scale continuum: "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). <...> We can state that the toroid contraction has qualitatively the same consequences for moving particles as an increase in their energy for a fixed size of the toroid." —Bliokh, K. Yu.; Kontorovich, V. M. ♦ On the Evolution and Gravitational Collapse of a Toroidal Vortex 2003, p. 5 After that, the retained angular momentum becomes compressed still more; as in the previous iteration, about a half of the additionally intensified angular momentum (heat, energy) becomes radiated into the larger-scale continuum. As the amount of the remaining angular momentum decreases, the interval between the compression iterations decreases too: "Nucleosynthesis of elements above helium is less efficient so that each successive reaction produces less energy per unit mass of fuel. This means that the reactions occur at greater rates so that radiation pressure balances gravity." —Post-Main Sequence Stars ATNF

The wall of our limaçon-shaped black-hole continuum's funnel 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 spacetime 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] Crystallization

A crystal is a persistent pattern of matter waves' constructive interference, which has a negative potential energy,[4] so that free matter waves are energetically indebted (i.e., attracted) to form a crystal (due to the minimum total potential energy principle). The indebtedness (i.e., gravitation) to form a crystal is subject to the inverse-square law—the closer the universe's matter waves come to forming a crystal, the deeper their debt (i.e., the stronger the gravitation, striving to bring about the matter waves' collapse into a crystal):

1946 AD is the beginning of the Debt Age: "Somewhere around 1945 we began to loot the future as a strategy for survival, some ethical norm was shattered." —McKenna, Terence ♦ History Ends in Green 1989 "The duration of the cycle next encountered is 67-plus years, and we have assumed the most recent such epoch to have begun in 1945. ... If our understanding is correct, then the same 67-plus-year cycle at, or near, the end of a 4300-year cycle will terminate around the year 2012." —McKenna, Terence; McKenna, Dennis ♦ The Invisible Landscape ♦ 1975 Matter waves' debt is their bound state (mutual constructive interference, information), which implies that 1946 AD is also the beginning of the Information Age—14 February 1946 is the day of the unveiling of the first electronic general-purpose computer (ENIAC), regarded as the birth of the Information Age.

When matter waves crystallize into a state of mutual constructive interference, they emit latent heat of crystallization into the ambient vacuum, whose consequent metric expansion cools the emitted heat of crystallization:

So the entropy of the cloud decreases as it organises itself into a star but the entropy of the surrounding Universe increases as the star radiates the converted energy into space. Increasing the number of photons in the Universe increases the entropy of the Universe.
—Clark, Stuart G. ♦ Life on Other Worlds and How to Find It Springer, 2000, p. 58
The entropy of a region uniformly filled with matter and radiation is truly proportional to its volume.
—Beckenstein, Jacob D. ♦ Information in the Holographic Universe Scientific American, August 2003

When matter waves' gravitational condensation and emission of thermal energy into the ambient vacuum are accelerating, the ambient vacuum's metric expansion and cooling lag behind. As a result, internally coherent matter-wave aggregates (atoms, molecules, people) become surrounded by an ocean of decohering thermal energy, known as the cosmic background radiation (CBR). The warm CBR isolates matter-wave aggregates from each other and thus enforces the principle of locality, which will be abolished when the CBR has cooled to a sufficiently low temperature:

The CBR has cooled from the initial 1 trillion degrees to the current 2.7 degrees Kelvin and will have lost its decohering properties by 2 November 2014 AD. Psychokinesis, eternal youth.Adapted from R. H. Dicke et al. ♦ Astrophysical Journal ♦ v. 142, 1965, p. 414 ♦ Source

If the basic behaviour of matter involves such features as wholeness, nonlocality and organization of movement through common pools of information, how then do we account for ordinary large-scale experience, in which we find no such features? It can be shown (Bohm & Hiley, 1987) that at higher temperatures, the quantum potential tends to take the form of independent parts, which implies that the particles move with a corresponding independence. It is as if, instead of engaging in a ballet dance, people were moving independently, each with his own separate pool of information. They would then constitute a crowd, in which the organized movement of the ballet has broken up.

US dollars are links of synergetic interindebtedness; loaning them into existence releases synergy (heat of crystallization), which expands the economy relatively to the ambient price metric. However, the released synergy (heat of crystallization) eventually becomes radiated (spent) into the ambient price metric, causing the latter's inflation and the economy's shrinkage in terms of purchasing power. Therefore, loaning US dollars into existence protects humanity from collapse only while it is faster than the consequent inflation of the price metric:

And since any inflation, however modest at first, can help employment only so long as it accelerates, adopted as a means of reducing unemployment, it will do so for any length of time only while it accelerates. "Mild" steady inflation cannot help—it can lead only to outright inflation. That inflation at a constant rate soon ceases to have any stimulating effect, and in the end merely leaves us with a backlog of delayed adaptations, is the conclusive argument against the "mild" inflation represented as beneficial even in standard economics textbooks.

Humanity exists as more than 3.5 billion couples only so long as the principle of locality prevents its fusion into a single couple of humans. In the end of 2014 AD, which is the moment of Peak Urbanization, Peak Internet, Peak Debt and Peak Energy, the release of the decohering latent heat of crystallization stops accelerating, so that the principle of locality becomes abolished and the "red supergiant" of humanity collapses into a "neutron star"—a single couple of humans endowed with psychokinetic powers. The principle of locality is atheism. Therefore, God comes to Earth at the peak of atheism.

[edit] Peak Urbanization

China's urbanization speed would slow down about 2013 after years of accelerated pace, chinanews.com.cn said Wednesday, citing a report by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. China's urbanization rate was 45.68 percent in 2008 and is expected to rise to 52.28 percent in 2015, 57.67 percent in 2020 and 67.81 percent in 2030, and then stay at that level for a long time, the report said.

[edit] Peak Internet

For some, the internet still feels pretty new. Indeed, the actual number of people online won't plateau for decades. But the net is still mature enough for the growth in adoption to begin slowing down soon. Known as an inflection point, this milestone occurs in any adoption curve, when the number of new adopters starts growing a bit less each year rather than a bit more. To find out if this might happen in 2011 for the internet, we plotted how the fraction of the world's online population has grown since 1990. It seemed to be consistent with a logistic curve, a pattern used to model myriad phenomena, from bacterial populations to tumour growth. By assuming that the rate of increase in adoption continues to follow a logistic curve, we were able to estimate when adoption would hit 50 per cent (see graph). In a logistic curve, this always corresponds to the inflection point. Our calculation suggests we will reach this in 2013.

[edit] Peak Debt

The "red supergiant" of humanity does not collapse into a "neutron star" only while it produces enough fuels to provide thermal pressure support, which is being done by means of a pyramid scheme of debt:

Thus, governments ultimately end up with financial problems, if extraction costs for fuels and metals rise faster than can be offset by innovation, as they have been since 2002. <...>
Shale resources are globally abundant, but they are too expensive to produce for the financials to work out. This problem is being hidden by ever more debt at very low interest rates. It can’t go on. We will have to wait and see how long it takes for the floor to fall out. Paying more to transfer shale oil by railroad car because it tends to explode is likely to be a push downward as well. It really needs pipelines, but the shale wells drop in volume so quickly, it doesn’t make economic sense to build pipelines.
—Tverberg, Gail ♦ Why a Finite World is a Problem 2 January 2014
It's clear that other parts of the economy are being sacrificed to pay for 'hundred dollar oil', or vain attempts at inferior substitution; similar to an addict selling things or not paying bills to support his addiction. Some of these things are considered discretionary by those who do the sacrificing; not so discretionary for those who make their livings in those sectors, or planned to retire on the surplus they thought they had produced. It seems these 'surpluses' are being targeted to provide the illusion that we, collectively, haven't overshot our resource base. Prices creeping up relative to incomes, pension funds disappearing, increasing costs of necessary services; how much of this is due to our perceived need to support the increasing costs of our oil addiction? I, for one, can't call this 'resilience'. It's triage.

Nuclear reactions will continue, however, because of the extremely high temperatures in the massive star's core. These further reactions have a devastating effect on the star, because they take energy out of the core. At such high temperatures and densities, the gamma-ray photons present in the core have sufficient energy to destroy the heavy nuclei produced in the many stages of nuclear reactions, e.g.:γ + 56Fe →134He + 4n This process, called photodisintegration, undoes the work of a stellar lifetime in the core and removes the thermal energy necessary to provide pressure support. The result is a catastrophic collapse of the core, which cannot be halted until the core has shrunk to a size of about 10 km and a density of the order of 200 million tons/cm3.

 Positive energy (centrifugal pressure, entropy) is magnetic, actual (rotationally incoherent) and causes positive emotions. Negative energy (centripetal suction, information) is electric, potential (irrotationally coherent) and causes negative emotions. In an organism, the brain plays the role of a central bank. As a brain's neurons become more bound (interconnected), the brain accrues an energy deficit by releasing positive binding energy. Under the influence of the centrifugal positive energy, loaned into existence by the brain, the body expands—grows in size. The marginal productivity of new debt is positive from age 0 to age 24, and negative from age 24 onwards. From age 0 to age 24, the energy-proficient brain plays the role of a benign central bank, whose credits (trophic impulses) promote the body's growth. From age 24 onwards, the energy-deficient brain plays the role of a malign central bank, sucking the body's vital juices like a vampire squid, so that the body withers and eventually dies. The age of 24 years, when the body's growth stops, is the golden age of emotional neutrality (Olympian calm) and peak power—the breakeven point between fusion (growth) and fission (decay).

The world's potential component—spirit—is nonlocal (omnipresent).[11] Sin is locality—vorticity, rotational decoherence, estrangement from the potential flow of spirit, directed towards the world's gravitational centre—God the Father.[12] Therefore, putting the world in a state of coherence (harmony) requires arresting the world's rotation, vorticity by crucifying its symbol—the curly-fleeced Lamb of God. Matter's translational acceleration is accompanied by its rotational deceleration—redemption from the original sin of rotational estrangement from the potential flow of God the Father's spirit (gravitation, love).

  • Christ takes on the sins of the world and thus is evil/Devil incarnate.
  • Antichrist is good/God incarnate.

God the Father's incarnation comes to pass in two stages:

Stage 1. The creation of a chaotic swarm of elementary particles of matter, known as Nature, the Devil, Christ or the Lamb of God, whose hot-headedness and curly fleece make it a symbol of the world's primordial wild and woolly vorticity:

Dust devil: a strong miniature whirlwind that whips up dust, litter, leaves, etc. into the air
Dust devil The Collins English Dictionary

Stage 2. The gravitational spaghettification (i.e., redemption from the original sin of rotational decoherence) of the elementary particles of matter into a serpentine organism known as the world tree or the Christmas tree, which is Antichrist—God the Father incarnate:

Through the incarnation, God descended into Nature in order to super-animate and take it back to him.

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.
John 3:14–15 English Standard Version

The sun/sin becomes born as Aries/Lamb (Ares/Christ) at the vernal equinox (Christmas), then becomes crucified (i.e., crosses the celestial equator downwardly) at the autumnal equinox (0°, Ω-Point)[13] and descends to the netherworld, turning into Scorpio/Serpent[14]/Eagle[15] (Antares[16]/Antichrist[15]).[17] Having suffered three "days" (, , ) on the cross, the sun/sin dies at 0°, which is the moment of the lowest heat, vorticity, sinfulness:

We must not forget the Christian Messiah was also crucified at the "place of the skull", Golgotha. That is, his sacrificial blood was spilled into the skull!
But there is more to this than meets the eye.
This place, Golgotha, is also connected to the sign Capricorn—the half-goat, half-fish, or serpent. Capri is from Latin, meaning "goat" or "head", and corn is "horn". This then, is the "horn of the head" or "goat"—the Golgotha.
So Jesus spilled his blood into the secret Grail on that fateful day—the secret Grail being the horn or cup of the skull.
Just as the serpent blood is found in the skull cups, so too is the blood of Jesus.
Now we can see why the Templars' infamous Baphomet head was seen as a skull and a goat; it was a hidden mystery—a mystery which has been misunderstood ever since. The Brazen Serpent, the healing snake of Moses now seen as Christ in the New Testament, was lifted up at the place of the skull and his offering of blood was collected—the ultimate sacrifice on the tree of life for the ultimate prize of immortality.

[edit] Year of Antichrist's coming

In the biblical tradition, maintained by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, the advent of God takes place on the seventh day of creation, i.e. in the seventh year of a septennial cycle—a year of Saturn. 2014 AD is a year of Saturn.

The year of Saturn of the Chaldean septennial cycle coincides with Shmita (also called the Sabbatical Year)—the seventh year of the seven-year agricultural cycle mandated by the Torah for the Land of Israel, and still observed in contemporary Judaism.

According to the Gaonim, any Anno Mundi (A.M.—the year since the creation of the world) year that is evenly divisible by seven, is a Shmita year. The year 5761 A.M. (2000–2001) was a Shmita year. 5761 is evenly divisible by seven (5761 / 7 = 823 with no remainder), which gives us a quick and easy way to calculate the Shmita year.
—Killian, Greg ♦ Septennial (Shmita - שמיטה) Torah Cycle

The name Eschaton means "the last". Naturally, the Eschaton, also known as Antichrist or the world tree, emerges in the end of the last year of a septennial cycle—a year of Saturn (2014 AD).

The name of the world tree, Yggdrasill, literally means "Horse of Yggr" (Yggr, "the Terrible; the Inspirer of Awe", is one of Odin's epithets; drasill is a poetic word for "horse"). Being a year of the Wooden Horse/Woden's Horse, 2014 AD is the year in which the world tree emerges.

Aries Dog Being ruled by Mars, Aries is a sign of war. "And Caesar's spirit shall cry 'havoc!' and let slip the dogs of war." (W. Shakespeare, Julius Caesar)
Taurus Pig Money and Eating are the keywords of both Taurus and the Pig
Gemini Rat The rat is a Mercurial animal. "Gemini is also symbolised by two Pillars joined at the top and base (), which is a diagrammatic representation of the Twins seated side by side with embracing arms."[20] Analogously, a "rat king" supposedly forms when swarming rats tangle their tails into a knot
Cancer Bull In Chaldean astrology, Cancer (ruled by the Moon) symbolizes the mammae and milk. The cow is the main milk producer; the mooing of a cow sounds like "Moon"
Leo Tiger Close relatives
Virgo Rabbit "bunny: a pretty, appealing, or alluring young woman, often one ostensibly engaged in a sport or similar activity: beach bunny; ski bunny."[21]
Libra Dragon As a gliding lizard, Draco volans has an acute sense of equilibrium. Libra is the sign of sunset (the Sun's descent). Like all modern reptiles, Draco volans lacks the ability to sustain powered flight and is capable only of gliding (descent), which makes it a symbol of sunset
Scorpio Serpent Scorpio and the Serpent are venomous symbols of Death. A Serpent was the Egyptian equivalent of Scorpio[14]
Sagittarius Horse Sagittarius is a centaur
Capricorn Goat Anteriorly, Capricorn is a goat
Aquarius Ape Aquarius is ruled by Uranus—the planet of chaos and genius. Apes are geniuses among animals
Pisces Cock Fishes symbolize embryonality (for a woman, seeing a fish in a dream foretells pregnancy). A hen's egg is an embryo too

Being a scaled-up version of the Chaldean 12-sign cycle, the Chinese 12-year cycle begins with the year of the Dog, analogous to the first sign of the Chaldean zodiac—Aries.

[edit] Sexagenary cycle

Together with the cycle of five elements, the 12-year cycle produces the sexagenary (12 × 5 = 60) cycle. The element of Fire corresponds to Aries (which is a Fire sign). Therefore, every sexagenary cycle begins with a year of the Fire Dog.

[edit] Septennial cycle

A year begins at the moment of the vernal equinox, when the Sun enters the sign of Aries, ruled by Mars.[22] Therefore, every septennial cycle becomes born in the beginning of a year of Mars.

[edit] 420-year cycle

The Chinese sexagenary cycle and the Chaldean septennial cycle yield 420 composite signatures (60 × 7 = 420), which implies that the duration of any astrological era must be a multiple of 420 years, and that any astrological era must begin with the first year of the 420-year cycle—a year of the Fire Dog–Mars. The last year of the Fire Dog–Mars is 1946 AD. Therefore, the current 420-year cycle began on 21 March 1946 AD.

[edit] Current era

In Berlin, peak temperatures of air and water are reached when the sun is at 0°,[23] one month after the peak of solar irradiation at 0°. Analogously, the breakeven point between warmth (locality) and coldness (nonlocality) is reached when the sun is at 0°, one month after it crosses the celestial equator at 0°.

The durations of the last eras (, , , ) form a Fibonacci sequence (5, 3, 2, 1):

[edit] Target era

According to the Seventh-day Adventist Church, God becomes incarnated on Saturday, the day of Saturn. Being ruled by Saturn, the era of Capricorn is the sabbatical era—the era of Advent, the Golden Age of Saturn. Odin, pierced with a spear, hangs on the world tree for nine days (the first nine signs of the zodiac, from Aries to Sagittarius), to attain wisdom and power by the tenth day (the tenth sign of the zodiac—Capricorn).

The keyword of Capricorn is "goal", because the ancient solar calendar consisted of ten months, and the Sun passed the sign of Capricorn during the tenth month—December:

The year began in March and consisted of 10 months, six of 30 days and four of 31 days, making a total of 304 days: it ended in December, to be followed by what seems to have been an uncounted winter gap.
The early Roman calendar Britannica

Thus, the homography of the words "goat" and "goal" is not a coincidence.

In Dante's Inferno, the world is depicted as a gravitational funnel, similar to a diamond open pit and leading to the centre of the Earth. The funnel is subdivided into nine levels or "circles", corresponding to nine solar months, from Aries to Sagittarius. The centre of the Earth is situated at the bottom of the ninth circle and corresponds to the solar month of Capricorn, during which the sun passes the lowermost part of its annual path and the Devil/Nature is half-frozen. The ninth circle is the circle of Treachery, breach of trust. Trust is coherence. Therefore, treachery is rotational decoherence. The Devil/Nature (rotational decoherence) is pictured waist-deep in a frozen lake at the bottom of the ninth circle, which implies that during the solar month of Capricorn, rotational decoherence is arrested and the world is coherent like a crystal. Only the lower half of the Devil/Nature is frozen/static, which implies an equilibrium of the static and nonlocal gravitoelectric field with the dynamic and local gravitomagnetic field, reached when matter's translational speed towards the continuum's gravitational centre is half the speed of light, so that the continuum is a dendritic neutron star (in a neutron star, the radial escape velocity is half the speed of light). The frozen loins of the Devil/Nature signify that the Devil/Nature is experiencing an orgasmic spasm, during which the matter waves of her organism are in a state of constructive interference and thus are redeemed from the original sin of mutual alienation, locality. The redeemed Devil/Christ/Nature is God/Antichrist/Supernature (psychokinesis, teleportation, eternal youth). Orgasm is death. So, the humble Christ's death on Mount Golgotha is his orgasm, redeeming him into the almighty Antichrist—the naive Lamb/Christ becomes self-gravitationally compressed into the wise Goat/Antichrist, just like a sufficiently compressed gas becomes a crystal. In the goat, rotation is arrested and the mind is not disturbed by rotational decoherence:

Lamb's wool is twisted. It is because in the youthful (beardless) organism of the lamb, the rotational magnetic field (matter) dominates over the irrotational electric field (spirit). The goat is bearded, which implies mature age, when the irrotational electric field (spirit) dominates over the rotational magnetic field (matter). That is why the goat has hair instead of wool.

Mr. D. C. Johnstone (Monograph on Woollen Manufactures of the Panjab in 1884–85) furnishes much information of a practical nature more especially regarding the manufactures and the appliances:
"The raw materials to be considered are four in number—sheep's WOOL, PASHM, or the wool of the Tibetan shawl goat, GOAT'S HAIR, and CAMEL'S HAIR; but it need hardly be remarked that the last two are not wool properly so-called. All wool has, in consequence of its structure, more or less of the property of felting, while goat's hair and camel's hair, having a different structure are never found to possess this property."
— Watt, George ♦ A Dictionary of the Economic Products of India v. 6, part 2, Cambridge University Press, 2014, pp. 622, 623
And finally, the horns of sheep curve differently than do those of goats. The right horn of a sheep twists to the right in a corkscrew manner and the left horn twists to the left. Goat horns curve backward, but do not twist sidewise.

Baphomet, also known as the Sabbatic Goat or the Eschaton, symbolizes the era of Capricorn—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. Therefore, the ultimate goal was in hardening one's wisdom by baptizing it. To baptize (βάπτω) means "to dip red-hot iron in water in order to make it hard".
