Looking closer at the main rhythm will show minor beats and breaks along the way that gives smaller fluctuations to the main beat.

These smaller fluctuations are affected by the earlier main rhythms. Example: Bigger events in history are repeated in smaller ways at a later time.

A lot of different rhythms coexists and are overlapping each other.

If all different rhythms are viewed from enough distance we can see a major rhythm that is affecting everything.

This was the theory behind our trend tracking. By following this theory one could see that each "trend curve" accelerated rapidly until from a far distance it would appear as a flat line. The rhythm was disappearing into a flat "cloud".

The accelerating pace around all of us is hard to ignore. And just by following fashion and life style trends it easy to see that we are repeating our selfs with an increasing pace.
