Announcing Cycles Research Insititure Discussion Forum.
Cycles Research Institute (http://www.cyclesresearchinstitute.org/)
is a division of Foundation for the Study of Cycles
and runs the Cycles Research Institute Discussion Forum. To use the
cycles forum please go to
http://www.cyclesresearchinstitute.org/bulletin.html and read the
information there about how the forum operates and from there get
directed to the forum itself. Anyone may read the messages in the forum

Some background on the Foundation for the Study of Cycles
"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
* Third, to incorporate these causes and conditions into the mainstream
of modern scientific theory and knowledge.
Edward R Dewey studied data from hundreds of different disciplines and
concluded that there are no fields of study in which the time series do
not have cycles present. For example, there is a list of reported cycle
by period at http://www.cyclesresearchinstitute.org/indexlength.html or
by time series name at
http://www.cyclesresearchinstitute.org/indexname.html with each
containing more than 1000 cycles determinations. Dewey then concluded
"..., 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)
