Cycles Research Institute
Objectives of the Cycles Research Institute
“Our mission is to discover, understand, and explain the true nature and origin of cycles, thereby solving the mystery of recurrent rhythmic phenomena, as has been observed in both the natural and the social sciences, and while so doing, to instruct others, and to apply this new knowledge for the greater good of all life.”
* First, to discover the causes and conditions for already observed and cataloged cyclic and rhythmic behaviors.
* Second, to classify discovered causes and conditions with the physical sciences.
* Third, to incorporate these causes and conditions into the mainstream of modern scientific theory and knowledge.
Although written by Edward R Dewey in 1967, this quotation is still just as pertinent today:
“…, insofar as cycles are meaningful, all science that has been developed in the absence of cycle knowledge is inadequate and partial. Thus, if cyclic forces are real, any theory of economics, or sociology, or history, or medicine, or climatology that ignores non-chance rhythms is manifestly incomplete, as medicine was before the discovery of germs.”
– Edward R. Dewey (Cycles Magazine July 1967)
To Foster, promote, coordinate, conduct, and publish scientific research and to carry on educational activities in respect to cycles and fluctuations in natural and social phenomena, and to function as a clearinghouse among scientists working in this area, in a manner dedicated to the public welfare.
To study cycles and fluctuating phenomena in any and every discipline.
Scientific disciplines include astronomy, biology, brain waves, chemistry, climate, cosmology, dendrochronology, economics, eeg, geology, health, history, hormones, physics, social trends, war, weather. Market studies include commodities, currencies, economics, exchange rates, finance, interest rates, markets, stocks and shares, trading. Other aspects of cycles include ancient knowledge, astrology, religion & spirituality and any other fields of study. Also of interest are the collection of time series data, mathematical techniques for cycles analysis, and theories of cycles and the relationship to music.
