Here's my guess on the "5 years" thing.
It obviously has more meanings, because they used exclamation marks as delimiters between parts of the message.
But if you read it without the delimiters, it reads like some sort of a warning...
It sounds like "You have 5 years to go, and Countdown begins (zero) at the New Year."
New year is probably the beginning of 2010.
They made a reference to these five years in the previous session too. It certainly evokes a strong sense of urgency, e.g. action should be taken as soon as possible.
What the other meanings could be - I'm not sure.
Of course, I could be completely wrong about this...
Actually, context means a lot... in this case, as "5 more years!" was finished... my mental question was "what do you mean?" and then came "2 go!" and then my mental question was "before what?" and the answer came: "0 new year!" and I understood that it meant the beginning of a new era.
This all happened silently and very fast, but it is not unusual for me to get a whole lot of information in my head as the letters of a linear bit of that info are spelled out. Those spelled out replies generally represent numerous layers of meaning which I usually get in a sort of "instant download" that is almost overwhelming. That's why it always amuses me when people come along and try to tell me what the Cs really meant and that I didn't get it. Lord, do I ever get it! Sometimes so much that there is no way to convey it all.
