For our June Meet-up we will read “Fractal Time” by Gregg Braden suggested by member Marie and affirmed by the group.
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 1970's energy crisis, he worked as a Senior Computer Systems Designer with Martin Marietta Defense Systems 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 that ensures the reliability of today's internet. In this book Braden attempts tomerge the modern discoveries of nature’s patterns (fractals) with the ancient view of a cyclic universe. The result is a powerful model of time—Fractal Time. Applying fractal time to the history of the world and life, he proposes that everything from the war and peace between nations to the patterns of human relationships mirror the returning cycles of our past.
Does this mean that we can predict the future, is he nuts, can spirituality and science be combined to figure anything out, is he a New Age Guru or is he on to something, well the answers are at our next meet-up because that’s what we do at the Thinkers Club, so mark your calendars and see you there.
