Find new listeners. Understand your audience. The Age of the Spirit : the age of return to unity with God and of total freedom, epitomized by the rule of the Order of the Just. The Phase of the Father : beginning at birth, when we receive our initial impressions and constructions of reality, in which our sense impressions are interpreted in terms of the truths handed down to us by our parents, our priests and all other authority figures. First Phasers do not question the validity of these truths, understanding them superficially.

They take them for granted, having had no meaningful exposure to other world-views, and if they do, they dismiss them, sometimes inimically, as aberrations from, or deliberate threats to, their own dogmas. The First Phase is dualistic when it comes to metaphysics and eschatology, as it tends to take literally the concepts of Heaven and Hell, for instance, understanding them only in a temporal and spatial sense.

Good and Evil are perceived as two in effect physical forces governing human behavior, while God and Satan are anthropomorphic deities in constant battle over the our souls the concept of soul also understood in a spatio-temporal sense. The Phase of the Son : a time of disillusion, rebellion and tribulation.

It is the time when one detaches his or herself from authority figures in quest of a new identity. The Second Phase, however, is not defined by identity, but by the lack thereof. In Neoplatonic terms, it is the descent of the soul from the realm of Being into the realm of Becoming, into the embrace i. Arithmetically it is 2, the principle denominator and divisor. In other words, they assert the primacy of the personal Deity as the Creator of all things and was intelligently designed in a top-down trickle-down?

Increasingly more people are finding themselves stuck in the Second Phase, relentlessly clinging to their Satanic Ego, their glorious flesh, their chemicals of atoms and void.

They may very well find themselves, despite their place in a populous and pluralistic society, in despondent solitude. Oedipus, in killing his father, symbolically exited the First Phase. So what happens next? The Phase of the Spirit : The rebellion of the Ego redounds upon itself, bringing about its total destruction, dismembered by a band of maenads and crucified under Pontius Pilate.

It suffers, dies, and is buried. In the Third Phase it rises again, in accordance with the scriptures of myth. Oedipus gouges out his eyes, the organs of sight into the world of Becoming, in order to gain true sight, insight, into the world of Being. The Third Phase, naturally, completes the Trinity. It is a return to Father by way of the Son as Joseph Campbell notes, the word atonement is really at-one-ment. It is the numerical 1 and 2 combined into a unity-in-plurality. The Third Phase, as an all-encompassing Trinity, embraces religion as understood allegorically and in a true understanding of metaphysics as the cosmological identity of reality and intellect, and it appreciates the value of ritual in its power to help society cohere.

It also embraces Science, as the proper methodology for understand reality in material terms. It views the two seemingly rival epistemologies as in harmony and as, like itself, contestants racing toward the same goal: Truth, Beauty, Meaning.

This is why the Neoplatonists had no bad conscience in reconciling Plato, Aristotle, and the Olympian pantheon. This analysis of human education explains comprehensively the political woes of the modern day, particularly in the United States, where power is in the hands i. The former stand stubbornly and puritanically and often hypocritically for a something they narrowly understand; the latter stand for nothing, letting the absence of value create a vacuum to be filled by license, hedonism and the anarchy of a swirling vortex of atoms in a probabilistic void.

The life of the tyrannical soul, from the perspective of such a soul, seems one to be envied. In a literal sense of the tale, this may be a fear of assassination, but more abstractly the loss of these material symbols of power, fear that the illusion of certainty invested in these objects will be carried away in the flux of time and the chaos of space that are characteristic of the sensible cosmos. Damoclean anxiety is endemic in tyrannical souls. The anarchy within gives rise to the true tyrant, the anxiety that limits his horizon of possibilities to the acquisition of whatever material means that can make the anxiety go away, a fruitless quest for ephemeral reassurances of a power he does not truly possess.

Worse yet, it becomes a positive feedback loop that drags the tyrannical soul deeper into the depths of Tartarus, of Hell, or however you wish it called. For acquisitive behavior causes an atrophy of abstract thinking. The tyrant is not a student of geometry. This double whammy of acquisitive behavior and the distraction of Damoclean paranoia prevents even the penitent tyrant from abstract thought, from appreciating the beauty of ideas, of values, of divinity, and on a basic level, of rational and geometrical proportion what the Greeks called logos.

Tyrants cannot properly study philosophy. A tyrannical soul, at least in effect, denies that the soul even exists. Even if he entertains the notion of a Creator, he is godless. For he lives a delusion of being himself a god, one who can manufacture meaning and values out of the chaos he arrogantly thinks he can turn into order.

Power to him is essentially creation, the means of production, sexual, industrial, capitalistic. We live in an age of anxiety, in a Republic so often maligned as a tyrannical superpower. But perhaps it is its population of tyrannical souls, devotees of the cult of individualism, materialism, and the fleeting tangibility of power, that underlies this increasingly short-sighted behemoth ever falling further from grace.

Story:The Shape Of The Nightmare To Come 50k section16

The driving force of my academic life is the dialectical tension between political and metaphysical antitheses. In political terms something I will flesh out in a later post this is the imperium envisioned by the Emperor Julian and Dante later , a society that is both open yet theocratic. Yet like any good philosophical exercise, the theory should precede the application, the idea preceding the material.

I will attempt to resolve the epistemological opposition between Neoplatonism and modern science. The short answer is that not only the contradiction, but also the order of precedence as regards the relation of idea to material, are illusions of language. Grammar divides the totality into subject and object, mind and matter, chicken and egg. The subject stares into an abyss that stares back at him, for it is his own reflection.

A longer answer requires an example derived from both camps, so that, like one fine Christmas morning in , the two can set aside their differences instead of shelling each other into oblivion. In one corner, the philosopher Parmenides whose influence on Plato qualifies him as a prophet of Neoplatonism. In the other corner, is String Theory specifically M-Theory , which is arguably the culmination of all mathematical and scientific speculation up to this point.

Parmenides is best known for his assertion that the true nature of reality is undivided, eternal, and static. He confided in a perfect correspondence between reason logos and nature. If anything in the material, sensible world did not correspond, that was an error of perception, since reason is inherently perfect.

His reliance on logos means a faith in logic, thus the concept of void, a positive nothingness that permits the movement of matter, is fallacious. Without movement, there can be no change. Time is another illusion of perspective. We are contained within it and cannot step outside it. If we could, we would see past, present and future all at once and as a uniform eternity. Trapped in the realm of time we see this eternity in apparent motion.

Then there is M-Theory see video below , which hypothesizes that the fundamental building-blocks of reality space-time and subatomic particles are infinitesimally small one-dimensional strings that vibrate in several dimensions. This accounts for the quantum phenomenon of particles popping in and out of existence.

Our definition of existence needs an overhaul. What makes this theory problematic is also what makes it so alluring.
