Novelty & Habit September Through November 1996

The Timewave over the next three months shows a moderate return to habit after the record levels of novelty experienced during the summer. We are now slowly returning to habit after the most novel period of the entire decade of the 90's. The novelty plunge of the spring and the trough of ultra-novelty which followed it and culminated in the discovery of extraterrestrial life are now fading. But not before they brought among other wonders, the completion of the mapping of the human genome, an unpredicted comet, brightest since 1558, and a powerful challenge to Novelty Theory itself. What lies ahead is a gradual assertion of habit which reverses itself very near the American Presidential and Congressional election. At that point novelty begins to intensify as the wave dips toward lower levels, but levels still less intense than the record levels attained during the summer months.
