Three Ways to Use the Calculator
Once we begin to think of time in terms of repeating cycles, the steps to find the key points of change become obvious. If we know a) when the cycle begins, b) when it ends and c) when the first event (seed event) that sets the pattern into motion within the cycle occurs, we can calculate the repeat points for the pattern that the event establishes for the portion of the cycle that remains. With a few simple calculations, we can use the Time Code Calculator as our window into such cycles in one of three ways: Mode 1, Mode 2 and Mode 3. With each mode we can answer a different question.
Note: Please be certain that the date and time on your computer's internal clock are correct. The Time Code Calculator will use your computer's clock in its calculations.
Mode 1: When Can We Expect Something that Has Happened in the Past to Happen Again?
In this mode we can identify a seed event in our personal or collective past, and calculate when the conditions created by that event will repeat in our future. It can be anything, good or bad, from the great joys of love, romance, success, and peace, to the great tragedies of loss, suffering, and war. What's important here is that the seed event begins the cycle. As cycles repeat in intervals that follow natural rhythms we can apply these patterns to the events of the past to discover when we can expect to see the same conditions again. Whether the cycle lasts for a moment or for thousands of years, because it is a cycle the conditions that it carries will repeat within the larger cycle that spawned it—our present world age of 5,125 years.
The input for Mode 1 must be a date that has already occurred, such as the seed date for global war of 1914, for example.
Mode 2: What Date in the Past Holds the Conditions We Can Expect for the Future?
In this mode we can identify a key event in our personal or collective future, and look back into the past to find the last time the same conditions existed in the cycle. Chapter 6 of Fractal Time illustrates this by using the Time Code Calculator to identify what we can realistically expect for 2012. By using the natural rhythms described in Chapter 1, we can pinpoint a concrete date in our past that is the seed for what we can expect in 2012.
The input for Mode 2 must be a date that has not yet occurred, such as the future date of 2012, for example.
Mode 3: When Can We Expect the Conditions of a Personal Experience, Either Positive or Negative, to Repeat in Our Lives?
The principles of cycles and time appear to be universal. For this reason, they apply to the things that happen in our personal lives as well as the things that occur on a global scale.
Mode 3 of the Time Code Calculator is a powerful aid to help us identify precisely such cycles, and when we can expect the conditions that we experienced at one time in our lives to repeat at a later time.
Using Mode 3 of the Time Code Calculator we can calculate the times in our lives for the repeating conditions of any emotional experience that has left its imprint on our heart. The conditions can range from the elation of an accomplishment to the hurt from a loss. The key in this mode is that the experiences that create the greatest magnitude of feeling tend to become the seed events for similar conditions, and similar patterns, to repeat at cyclic intervals. From our greatest loves to our deepest hurts, it's amazing to see how deeply the experiences from one time in life impact other relationships after the seed is planted. As described in the text of Chapter 5, the Time Code Calculator will perform the simple calculations that help to determine when you can expect the cyclic conditions of your seed experience to repeat in your life. When we use these calculations, there are seldom absolutes and rarely exact repeats of earlier situations. What we are looking for are general patterns that can give us a “heads up” in business or romance.
The input for Mode 3 is your age when an obvious momentous event (the seed) occurred.
