The Other Y2K Crisis
Yet even as temperatures in the Cold War rose to dangerous levels in the 1960s and 1970s making even getting to 1984 look optimistic, the year 2000 began to creep back more into the public and scholarly consciousness. Actually, it was the year 2001 that perhaps initially snapped attention to the coming millennium, thanks to Stanley Kubrick and Arthur Clarke, but the year 2000 soon drew increased attention as well.

Fibers, Hands, and Fig Trees
The concentric upward curves of a fig tree's branches resemble the arrangement of Shiva's multiple arms as he dances the Nadanta or cosmic dance.
