[The I
 Ching is thought to work the same way, and uses a sixty-four-part
 structure almost identical to that of DNA to help people predict future
 events and understand their personal roles in the overall continuum of
 time and space.  Terence and Dennis McKenna used computers to compute the
 I Ching as a huge fractal equation for all of human history. According to
 their fractal, called 'Time Wave Zero,' history and time as we know it
 will end in the year 2012. This date has also been linked with the Mayan
 Tzolkin calendar, which many believe also calls 2012 the end of linear
 time. It makes the notion of a simple, global renaissance pale by
 comparison. - Douglas Rushkoff]
