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.

    I am looking forward to using this blog to share research in all areas of natural cycle analysis.

    I would like to report a new, undiscovered astronomical cycle with strong climatic effect, for
    our times even the most climate-determining cycle. Present cycle length: 790 years, and cycle
    amplitude 2.17 W/m^2. One major use of the cycle is the accurate forecast of the climate
    of the 21.Century. Transparent details, understandably to everyone, are presented in the
    booklet: Joachim Seifert “Das Ende der globalen Erwaermung” ISBN 978-3-86805-604-4 (2010)
    (in German). There are further astronomical cycles such as the Milankovitch cycle, but all of those concern very long time cycles of longer than 20,000 years. This new cycle has a length
    of less than 1,000 years, thus within millenium scale and can clearly seen in historical analyses.
