Your Year 2018 Part 1
Part I – Global Influence of the Universal Year on Your Opportunities for 2018
© Michael Brill 2018
In this two-part article, I would like to discuss the underlying influences of the Universal Year (Part I) as well as the vibrations of your Personal Year (PY) for 2018 (Part II.) The PY cycle lasts nine years with each preceding year setting the tone for the following year. The PY begins on January 1 and lasts until December 31. (Some numerologists count the PY as lasting from birthday to birthday.)
I believe everyone has consciously chosen to be here, but most of us have forgotten that we arrived with a written guarantee of success. This guarantee is composed of numeric patterns mathematically encoded into the letters and numbers of names and birth dates. The decoded guarantee includes built-in solutions for resolving every life challenge. The goal is to make more proactive conscious choices, allowing us to overcome the illusion of “cosmic abandonment” and to fulfill our life calling. ( ARTICLES: “Our Abandonment Issues Are the Catalysts . . .” also read the series of articles entitled “There’s Only Plan A, No Plan B….”)
Every major civilization has used a system that combines letters and numbers. Western Numerology, converts letters into their numerical equivalents then, analyzes the combined energetics of the letters and numbers as catalysts for our daily interactions and health issues. It’s a system developed by the Greek mathematician Pythagoras. Numerology is the science of interpreting the patterns of numbers and letters as they interact with other frequencies to create our realities. Whether one is a novice or an expert, using the basic alphanumeric formulas of Numerology produces consistently accurate results.
Add the digits of the month and day of birth together or day and month of birth (Western or European Style).
Reduce any double-digit sums to a single digit. This is the Achievement Number (AN).
This number identifies core issues, potential strengths, and solutions for everything.
The formula would be written as M + D = AN or D + M = AN (Achievement Number).
Some brief examples of core issues associated with the AN would be:
– Interactions Involving the Self
– Interactions Involving Others
– Interactions Involving Communications and Social Interactions
– Interactions with Control, “Getting It Done”
– Interactions Involving Change and Movement
– Interactions Involving Family, Community, Relationships
– Interactions Involving Trust, Skepticism, and Control
– Interactions Involving Power, Money, Control, or Status
– Interactions Involving Selflessness or Codependency
0 – Interactions Related to Spirit (trust and faith)
Numbers represent the electromagnetic vibratory attraction of particles of potential. Potential is the catalyst for Creation. Creation leads to harmony. Harmony is the foundation for Unity. Within Unity, Partnerships are established. Partnerships generate new potential and the cycle of co-creation continues.
We are that potential.
Our most important partnership is with our Integrated Self (Ego, physical-self and Soul, Cosmic-self in a conscious and harmonious “Yin-Yang state.”) Once we are integrated, there is no more apprehension, self-doubt, anxiety, stress, or self-sabotage; our cosmic abandonment issues and their consequences have dissolved. We have remembered who we are, what gifts we have brought with us, and how we can best share them. (I have developed a five-minute exercise for integrating the soul and ego, which can be found at Articles: “Four Phases of Personal Growth. The integrated ego and soul provide “Colutions,” solutions for all of our life’s challenges.
What is Transpersonal Numerology
Transpersonal Numerology (a branch I have added to the tree of Pythagorean Numerology), is a melding of the sciences of numerology and quantum dynamics with the concepts of Gematria and reincarnation. Transpersonal Numerology is the study of the patterns and frequencies associated with the numbers and letters that make up our realities. It can identify the behavior patterns of individuals, businesses, or countries. It identifies the challenges and colutions associated with those behavior patterns. Whether it’s a name, illness, disease, address, food, chemical, mineral, color or craving, they all have one thing in common, they symbolize the interrelationships of the energies and events that affect our lives. Numbers and letters represent the codes of creation. Transpersonal Numerology decodes the potential patterns generated by both conscious (proactive) and unconscious (reactive) choices.
Names, including those for businesses, countries, pets, fictional and cartoon characters, reveal emotional and psychological behavior patterns as well as strengths (proactive choices) and weaknesses (reactive choices.)
Birthdates, including naturalization dates, or a Court approved legal name change; identify the destiny, life challenges and their solutions, mental patterns, and the physical opportunities that will enable us to fulfill our life calling.
None of us would have ever chosen to be born on Earth, if we did not have the foreknowledge that we had more than enough grace, to successfully fulfill our part of the Cosmic Plan, and a written guarantee for a successful life.
You may ask, “If I have sufficient grace, and a written guarantee of success, why has this life been so difficult?”
My answer is, even though we have more than enough grace to succeed in this lifetime, the depth of our Cosmic Abandonment issues become the catalysts for our Life Challenges. The more someone has a need to be loved, accepted, or in control, the more reactive behaviors (passivity or aggression) become their primary response when interacting with others. This can make life very difficult.
Many of us are still “running” the same reactive behavior programs we operated on in previous lives, and have finally decided, with the coming of “The New 26,000 Year Age,” (see page 10) to resolve our deepest issues in this lifetime. To fulfill our life’s calling; we MUST become more proactive in our interactions, by making ourselves our first priority and doing what we love.
In Numerology, the use, misuse, or non-use of the energies of our personal numbers, influences every aspect of our daily lives, including our reactive behaviors at work, in relationships, and with family. REMEMBER, every challenge has a Colution. Colutions are activated by making our ego and soul making harmonious, conscious, and proactive choices.
Personal numbers* can also identify potential mental, emotional, and physical experiences, giving us the foreknowledge that allows us to make more proactive life choices and fewer reactive choices.
(* Personal numbers are any numbers that appear on a personal numerology chart; they include challenge numbers, Colution numbers, and all other major numbers related to a name and birthday. Numbers that “pop-up” in our daily life are also personal numbers (addresses, license plates, signs, clocks, dreams, etc.)
* * * * * * *
The Universal Year (UY) is determined by adding each digit that composes the current calendar year (e.g., 2018 is a 11/2 UY; 2+0+1+8 = 11, 1+1 = 2. The year 2018 is an 11/2 Universal Year.
The next step would be to add your Achievement Number (AN) to the double-digit total of the current year (11) to determine your Personal Year (PY). 2018 = 11/2 added to an Achievement Number of 39/3, would place this individual in a 50/5 Personal Year (PY.)
HOWEVER, for purposes of simplicity, I am only focusing on the single digit sums of the UY and PY. With that in mind, 2018 is a 2 and the 39/3 AN reduces to 3. Adding 2 UY + 3 AN = 5 PY. Definitions for the personal year are found in Part II of this article.
Throughout each nine-year cycle, we are presented with opportunities to make more proactive choices and fewer reactive choices. Whatever reactive patterns we fail to identify and begin resolving as we pass through a nine-year cycle, recur with more intensity in the following nine-year cycle. Ultimately, failure to resolve these reactive patterns can lead to health issues.
Following is a brief description of the energies and linkages between the individual personal years of the nine-year cycle and the underlying energy of the Universal Year (UY.) Regardless of your PY (1 through 9), the influence of the UY (1 through 9) is also present. The year 2018 is a 2 UY (2 + 0 + 1 + 8 = 11 1+1 = 2.)
If you are experiencing a 5 PY, the energy of the 2 UY should also be considered. In a 5 PY, there are opportunities for change, travel, and new beginnings. The underlying energy of the 2 UY also indicates Celestial and/or Earthly help is available to assist with these changes and transitions.
If you are experiencing an 8 PY, the energy of the 2 UY should also be considered. The 8 PY, combined with the proactive lessons learned in the previous 7 PY, can present opportunities for recognition, advancement, initiating or expanding a business and an increase in abundance. The underlying energy of the 2 UY indicates a need for cooperation, timely communication, compromise, and utilizing the energy of partnership.
These interpretations can be used to understand the concepts of the energies/frequencies operating in both the Personal and Universal Years.
Interactions involving the Ego-Self.
The energy of the “1” is influenced by how you dealt with your 9 personal year.
Interactions involving others.
Assistance is available to help you move forward with what started in your 1 year. Provide assistance to others. Cooperate, compromise, and communicate in a timely fashion. Develop more faith in others. Learn to delegate.
Interactions Involving Communication, Social Interactions, Feelings of Inadequacy, Focus.
With continuing help, this is the time for moving forward with the ideas generated in the 1 year, a year of creativity and manifestation.
Interactions Involving Details and “Getting Things Done”
A year for making the ideas and actions you have been thinking about and developing in the 3 year, into reality.
Interactions involving Movement and Change
Opportunities to begin a new life. Time for a break after the hard work of the 4 year; settle down around October for 6-year responsibilities.
Interactions Involving Family, Community, Relationships, Responsibility
Responsibility and service are the keys to a good year. A break is coming in the form of alone time in your upcoming 7 year.
Interactions Involving Issues of Abandonment, Trust, Skepticism, and Control, Analyze our interactions with others during the 2 and 6 personal years. A year of lessons in surrendering the illusion of control and developing patience. This could be the most difficult year of the nine-year cycle if you have agenda’s.
Interactions Involving Self-empowerment, Power, Money, Control, Status, and Ambition.
Remembering the lessons of patience and that control is an illusion from your 7 PY, you move forward, towards personal empowerment. IF the 2PY, 4PY, and 6PY were more proactive than reactive, then opportunities for recognition and financial gain will present themselves in the 8 PY. IF your behaviors were more reactive during the 2, 4, and 6 PY, then hardship will find you in the 8 PY.
Reactive Interactions of Doing to Be Loved, Accepted, or Maintaining Control, or proactive interactions based on Doing What You Love. The completion of the nine-year cycle of evolvement and personal growth can be a very emotionally difficult year. Its energy usually carries over into the first quarter of the 1 PY.
* * * * * * *
Before showing you how to determine your current Personal Year (PY) for 2018, let me first say something about the outgoing year 2017, a Universal 1 year (add 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10 1 + 0 = 1.)
The energy of a Universal Year (UY) is a hidden influence with the potential to enhance both the proactive and reactive behavior patterns of your current Personal Year. Refer to ( Articles: “Interpretation of Numbers 1 – 9” for characteristics and opportunities to be experienced.)
2017 (2+0+1+7 = 10/1 Universal Year (UY))
Melding the frequencies of your personal year (PY) for 2017 with the 1 UY, provided lessons that built on the experiences of 2016, a 9 UY (letting go of emotional residue and learning about non-attachment).
If we became more proactive in 2015 (8 UY,) then 2016, a 9 UY, may have brought more opportunities for self-empowerment, recognition, leadership, possible financial gain (but no financial losses), and a sense of accomplishment. The underlying energy of the 9 UY could also be a catalyst for endings or preparations for new beginnings.
If the same reactive behavior patterns existed in your life at the beginning of 2017, as those in 2009 (2 UY,) 2011 (4 UY,) 2013 (6 UY,) and 2015 (8 UY,) then 2016, a 9 UY, was fraught with emotional challenges. The emotional residue carried into 2017 caused missed opportunities, and increasing frustration. The increased frustration began about April 1 and intensified through the third week of July, peaking on the Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017. If you have not “worked” on you core issues, then the Eclipse represents the Doors of Opportunity closing. It is exactly the opposite for those that are working on resolving their core issues, the Doors of Opportunity are opening wider.
For those using the Western Calendar, the reactive energy of the 1 UY, 2017, has seen an impatience for change, the rise of despots, political gridlock caused by ego-based agenda’s, emotional and physical resistance, and tons of drama. (A carryover from 2016.)
2017, as a 1 UY, represented the beginning of a new nine-year universal cycle. 2016 was the end of the cycle that began with the collapse of global economic systems in 2008 (1 UY). Nine years after that economic crash, most of the world is still recovering. Nine represents endings and can be a very emotional number. A reactive 1 can be egotistical, expect, or need recognition, appreciation, and thanks for their “good deeds.” In relation to countries or cultures, a reactive 1 can be seen in the rise of Nationalism and an “us first” attitude. Some examples of egocentric behaviors in 2017, placing personal agenda’s ahead of the welfare of their Country (carrying over to 2018), has been demonstrated by the political leaders and governing bodies of the United States, Great Britain, Hungary, France, Poland, Germany, Spain, Turkey, Russia, Syria, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Libya, Israel, Myanmar, South Sudan, Somalia, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Central African Republic, Ukraine, Yemen, and Venezuela, to name but a few. Excellent examples would be an uptick in terrorist attacks, the failure to develop a unified global approach to the refugee crises because of Nationalist agenda’s, the rise of Nationalism, issues with climate change, and the unequal distribution of wealth.
2016 presented everyone opportunities to let go of their emotional residue and begin doing what they love by preparing for the new beginnings associated with a 1 UY. There will much more of the same globally in 2017 as there was in 2016, but with greater intensity because many world leaders, and their adherents, are becoming more strident, nationalistic, and self-protective. People are looking for scapegoats. Again, I must say this is all related to cosmic events, such as the August Solar Eclipse.
I stressed the reactive interpretation of the 1 UY (interactions involving others), because of global news headlines.
* * * * * * *
In 2017, as part of the underlying energy of the 1 UY there may have been personal issues involving confidence, taking the initiative, arrogance, indecisiveness, or codependency.
You may have hidden your emotions or they may have gotten the better of you; you may have gotten frustrated more easily and challenged others more quickly. There may have been unforeseen expenses that caused hardship.
The energy of a reactive 1 can indicate:
Passive, aggressive, egocentric, low self-esteem, fearful, a zealot, timid, a bully, arrogant, no sense of self or perceive themselves as the center of the universe.
The energy of a proactive 1 is:
Self-directed, a natural leader, paradigm buster, innovator, assertive, energetic, balanced, follows their internal guidance, are initiators, and are comfortable with themselves.
What Universal Opportunities Does 2018 Present?
Before you read any more of my material, I want to present this excerpt from a speech by the UN Secretary General given on January 1, 2018.
“United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres issued a grim warning as 2017 drew to a close.
In a somber video address posted to Twitter on New Year’s Eve, he cautioned that the globe was on “red alert” following a year marked by deepening conflicts and “new dangers.”
“When I , I appealed for 2017 to be a year for peace,” Guterres said in the clip. “Unfortunately, in fundamental ways, the world has gone in reverse. ... Global anxieties over nuclear weapons are the highest since the Cold War, and climate change is moving faster than we are. Inequalities are growing, and we see horrific violations of human rights. Nationalism and xenophobia are on the rise.”
Facing such challenges, Guterres said he was “not issuing an appeal” but a “red alert for our world. Only international unity and cooperation, he stressed, could now help solve these many crises.” (Bolding is mine. This is the “2” energy of 2018.)
* * * * * * *
The total of 2 + 0 +1 + 8 = 11 1 + 1 = 2. 2018 is an 11/2 Universal Year (UY).
When I analyzed the individual numeric sequence of 2018, I see: Let go of emotional and/or sentimental attachments . . . speak up in a timely fashion . . . cooperate with others . . . seek harmony . . . be willing to compromise . . . honor the feminine aspect of your Self (all 2 actions.) The 0 indicates that Spiritual assistance is available if you ask for it. The 1 represents the Self. The positive 1, has reintegrated itself (ego and soul,) knows it is part of a cosmic oneness and moves forward making conscious proactive choices. The 8 represents self-empowerment, opportunities for recognition, increase in status, business opportunities.
The most reactive aspects of 2018, as reflected in the behavioral patterns of those in “power,” political entities, corporations, and cultures, could appear as:
2 – Insensitivity, non-cooperation, failures to communicate, failure to release emotional and/or
0 – Loss of Faith, feelings of isolation
1 – Arrogance, bullying, egotism, Nationalism
8 – Aggression, greed, hostility, domination
The presence of a 2 (2018) always indicates lessons revolving around emotional and sentimental attachments, timely communication, cooperation, compromise, and speaking up in a timely manner, and interactions involving others.
Proactive 2 frequencies can be:
The proactive 2 is sensitive, intuitive, cooperative, mediators, arbitrators, organizers, and harmonizers, friendly, communicate in timely fashion, are detail oriented, tactful, and loyal. They have a voice others find pleasant to “listen” to, and hear; thus making it easy for them to sway others (2).
Reactive 2 frequencies can be:
Subservient, shy, overly sentimental, timid, careless about “things,” codependent, does not speak up for self, self-centered, difficulty letting go of emotional and sentimental attachments, blunt, insensitive, has difficulty working with others – not a team player, hides emotions, could be non-verbal, may beat people with the “hammer of truth”
Globally, 2018 as well as the following three years, will provide many opportunities for people, businesses, institutions, and governments to let go of fear based selfishness, and begin embracing mutual cooperation by developing Plan A’s that benefit everyone. ( ARTICLES, the series, “There’s Only Plan A, No Plan B.”) Agendas are always ego based, and related to Cosmic abandonment issues.
The energy of a Universal Year (UY) is an underlying influence on the energy of the Personal Year (PY). Following is a brief interpretation of some of the underlying Universal energies for some previous years, as well as for the next few years and potential actions:
A quick review of the past five years with a look to the future.
was a 6 UY (2+0+1+3= 6.) Worldwide there were issues with water, either too much or too little (2); rising spiritual awareness because of hardships or insensitivity (0); a need for leaders to begin social initiatives (1); a focusing of resources along with open communication (3). Under the influence of the 6 UY, real estate will come to the forefront. It is a time for beginning and/or ending relationships involving people, governments, and businesses as well as a time for strengthening your relationship with Spirit.
was a 7 UY. The influence of the seven provided opportunities that required faith, patience, and the realization that the only thing we can control is our decisions. The underlying energy was about learning to make more proactive decisions and fewer reactive decisions. It was a year that could have helped us move closer to doing what we love rather than to be loved or try to maintain control. Hopefully, this year was a catalyst for more emotional and spiritual global clarity and collaboration.
was a 8 UY. The presence of an eight always indicates financial issues, legal proceedings, and issues with groups, institutions, and organizations. Globally, there could be serious financial issues. It can also indicate payback time for those (people, businesses, or governments) that did not “cooperate” in their 2 UY, build constructively or lay foundations in their 4 UY year, or be of “service” in their 6 UY.
was a 9 UY and brings the nine-year global cycle, which began in 2008, to its conclusion. (Ring any bells?) Everything that has occurred since 2008, which for the most part has not been beneficial for the average person, has the potential to repeat itself with more or less intensity. The amount of intensity will be determined by lessons learned and proactively acted upon. This year calls for releasing the residue of old beliefs and behavior patterns so we can begin new Plan A’s. This year will set a global tone for the new nine-year cycle that begins in 2017. The last 1 UY was 2008 and the following eight years, overall, were not good.
2+0+1+7 = 10/1 ( A “0” always implies Cosmic assistance is available, if called
2+0+1+8 = 11/2 (Master Number 11 and 2.) Cooperation is the key word.
2+0+1+9 = 12/3 (Numbers 1 and 2, influence the 3.) Creativity and manifestation
This is a continuation and culmination of plans, or visions, initiated in the 1 UY, with assistance provided by others, in the 2 UY. A 3 UY brings opportunities to continue moving forward with the plans implemented in 2017. It calls for focus, emotional intimacy, persuasive communication skills, and optimism. The reactive energy of the 3 UY could bring feelings of scatteredness, inadequacy, sarcasm, grandiose plans, moodiness, even un-forgiveness.
2+0+2+0 = 4
(2020 is a single digit 4.) Work, develop order, system, and structure
The energy of 2020 calls for developing system, order, and structure. If the process has not already begun, now is the time to “get things done.” Be alert to procrastination or reactionary behavior. Governments and other large institutions may try to assert more control over the population.
2+0+2+1 = 5
(2021 is a single digit 5.) Opportunities for new beginnings and change. IT IS A CRITICAL YEAR in determining the direction of the World for the concluding four and a half years of the current nine-year cycle. We are at the midpoint in the current nine-year cycle; we will have opportunities to move towards more proactive conscious behavioral patterns, or become engulfed in the reactive behavior patterns of “doing to be loved, accepted, or in control. This year, individual and global actions could be excessive.
There will be “false” alliances formed for personal gain, rather than communal gain. “Excesses” will come to a head, whether those are the excesses of an individual, group, business, or political entity.
We have an opportunity in 2021 (5 UY and half way through the nine-year cycle,) for a mid-course correction, if required. If changes are required but not implemented, the remainder of the cycle will not be pleasant; it will be a continuation of the pain and suffering of the previous nine-year cycle, only cranked up several notches. The next major opportunity for change and new beginnings is 2026, a 1 UY.
Is a 6 UY (2+0+2+2 = 6) Globally a time for more compassion and providing assistance to others less fortunate. A time for the beginning and ending of relationships, partnerships, friendships, and alliances. Keep an eye on the real estate market. If “things” are not working, then 2023 will be a year to test faith and patience.
Is a 7 UY. Just like a personal 7 year, this is a year to learn to be more objective, patient, trusting. If things are not working for you, stop pushing, step back, and allow your feelings to guide you. If it doesn’t “feel right,” it isn’t; if it does “feel right,” it is.
Is a 4 UY. There is a potential for conflicts, financial problems, anger, frustration, and economic collapse. If patience and faith was not developed in 2023, this could be a very difficult year for global finances and partnerships.

The Yearly Universal Solution
Every number has a challenge and solution. ( Articles: Challenge and Soulution Chart.) Regardless of what personal year an individual, business, corporation, or nation is experiencing in 2018, the Universal Yearly Solution for everyone is 4 (e.g., The proactive 4 can be: Organized, architect, builder, systematic, logical, dependable, practical, manager, ability to totally focus on a task, and a logician. The 4 Universal Solution is a reminder to stay focused on the tasks at hand, don’t procrastinate, be a bully – pushing ego based agenda, or get lost in minutiae to avoid brings things to a conclusion.
The 4 Universal Solution for 2018 calls for each of us, regardless of our Personal Year, to be more
focused, diligent, organized, and more self-disciplined.
The anomaly of a Universal Solution applying to each year of the nine-year cycle is Spirit’s way of honoring our free will, while offering us a solution for enhancing universal harmony. (It has been proven mathematically, that if 15% of a group changes their base patterns, it is enough to influence the other 85% to begin making changes.)
One More Thought . . .
As explained in my article on abandonment issues, we hire “employees” to push our buttons until we learn to be less reactive and more proactive in our behavior and speech. At that point, we realize that doing to be loved, accepted, or trying to maintain control, generates a great deal of stress and is of no benefit to us. When your “employees” shows up this year, it is vital that you recognize them. The second you feel your heart race, stomach sink, or head pound recognize that this is being caused by your reaction to the negativity directed at you by your employee. In that moment of recognition, take a mental step to the side and say “Ah, one of my employees have shown up; let’s see which abandonment button they will try to push today.” If you can mentally step to the side, and become more objective with this recognition, their attack is no longer personal it becomes an opportunity to opt out of previous reactive behavior patterns and opt in to making more proactive decisions, which can enable you to start doing more of what you love.
Explanations of “New Age” and “Yuga.”
(An Age lasts about 26,000 years. This is the approximate time it takes our entire solar system to make one complete rotation while simultaneously rotating through the Milky Way Galaxy. (In Astrology, this is equivalent to completing a transit through each of the twelve houses of the Zodiac.)
This changing of Ages is also referred to as The Great Year. The Great year is based on Yugas, as defined in the Hindu religion.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“Yuga in Hinduism is an epoch or era within a four age cycle. A complete Yuga starts with the , via and into a . Our present time is a Kali Yuga, which started at 3102 BCE with the end of the
Characteristics of the 4 Yugas:
1 – Satya Yuga (also known as Krita Yuga "Golden Age"): The first and best Yuga. It was the age of truth and perfection. The Krita Yuga was so named because there was but one religion, and all men were saintly: therefore, they were not required to perform religious ceremonies. The caste system was very flexible. Humans were gigantic, powerfully built, handsome, honest, youthful, vigorous, erudite, and virtuous. The Vedas were one. All mankind could attain to supreme blessedness. There was no agriculture or mining as the earth yielded those riches on its own. Weather was pleasant and everyone was happy. There were no religious sects. There was no disease, decrepitude, or fear of anything. Human lifespan was 100,000 years and humans tended to have hundreds or thousands of sons or daughters. People had to perform penances for thousands of years to acquire Samadhi and die.
2 – Treta Yuga: Is considered to be the second Yuga in order; however, Treta means the "Third.” In this age, virtue diminishes slightly. At the beginning of the age, many emperors rise to dominance and conquer the world. Wars become frequent and weather begins to change to extremities. Oceans and deserts are formed. People become slightly diminished compared to their predecessors. Agriculture, labour, and mining become existent. Average lifespan of humans is around 1000-10,000 years.
3 – Dvapara Yuga: Is considered to be the third Yuga in order. Dvapara means "two pair" or "after two". In this age, people become tainted with Tamasic qualities and aren't as strong as their ancestors. Diseases become rampant. Humans are discontent and fight each other. Vedas are divided into four parts. People still possess characteristics of youth in old age. Average lifespan of humans is around a few centuries.
4 – Kali Yuga: The final age. It is the age of darkness and ignorance. People become sinners and lack virtue. They become slaves to their passions and are barely as powerful as their earliest ancestors in the Satya Yuga. Society falls into disuse and people become liars and hypocrites. Knowledge is lost and scriptures are diminished. Humans eat forbidden and dirty food and engage in unrestrained sinful sexual practices. The environment is polluted, water and food become scarce. Wealth is heavily diminished. Families become non-existent. Average lifespan of people is barely 100 years, though, by the end of the Yuga, it will be as low as 20 years.”
