The Great Period of Change is Coming to an End


  • Emiliano T. Hudtohan


Period of Change, Feminine Energy. Chaos Theory, VUCA World, EDSA Revolution, Martial Law, Digital Technology, And Enlightened Humanity.


The Great Period of Change articulated by Christine Page, Gregg Braden, and Erwin Laszlo is from 1987 to 2023. This global phenomenon is a period of chaos, conflict, and disorder which Bennett and Lemoine describe as a world that is volatile uncertain complex, and ambiguous (VUCA); it is the Age of Upheaval, according to Hult Executive Academy. The local 2022 Philippine national election is a manifestation of this VUCA world in the Age of Upheaval. The elected President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. demonstrated feminine energy in managing his campaign amidst a highly negative toxic political arena that brought him to a landslide victory. Political pundits and prophetic personalities paint a metaphysical picture of new governance in Philippine politics, a signal that the Great Period of Change in the Philippines is happening in 2022.  The EDSA People Power Revolution of 1986 triggered governance change and the 2022 election announces the end of that period, coinciding with the galactic period of change from 1987 to 2023. The paper concludes by presenting Laszlo’s new enlightened humanity by 2025.
