At one point I figured that major cycles in my life took 7 years. That is a thing, ya know: seven years. I used to map out the 7 years occasionally, but 10 years seems more accurate to me now. It takes magnificent landmarks before it is possible to distinguish the journey. "Hey! I've been here before, but my perspective has shifted." Now, it is on a sine wave, so five years crosses the x axis. It starts at zero.
OK. Here is a strange one. I think it is possible to reverberate backwards. It is possible to have an event significant enough in your life that it vibrates the rope of your existence from birth to the event, changing the frequency to make the length of the wave correspond. Other events shift. What really bends your mind is when the timelines change to adapt. Bends. Your. Mind. Wait, what? That is in the past???
In the now, we have an overarching challenge, a schoolyard game of jump rope between birth and death. The amplitude and rhythm may change with the controls, and it is possible to share skips with another rope of life, and with partners, but the frequency doesn't change beyond that, just bobbing back and forth, smiling and laughing as you head towards the heart of the sun, where the rope disappears, as do the controls, as do your partners, and your laughter echoes in waves into the universe.
