Gregg Braden: Fractal Time 

Friday July 23 - Saturday July 24

You’ve heard about the year 2012, right? According to the Mayan calendar, time as we know it is supposed to come to a crashing stop on Dec. 12 of that year, and all kinds of conflagrations and potentially apocalyptic events are predicted to come to pass when the planets attain their sinister alignment on that date.

But, there’s more to it than just some prophecies from an ancient method of timekeeping: Author Gregg Braden connects the “laws” of fractals, mathematical equations that generate recursive patterns like fractals to history to view time as “the great ripples of a galactic wave” that, if you follow the analogy, is getting ready to “amplify” to the scale of a freakin’ tsunami. Braden explains it all and tells how to “heal the hurt from previous choices” that have brought us to these crossroads, where we are definitely in search of some remedies.

Gregg Braden: Fractal Time: A Guide to 2012 and Beyond @ University Park Marriott Hotel, 480 Wakara Way, 801-581-1000, July 23, 7-9:30 p.m. & July 24, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. $30-$125.
