Dane Rudhyar, Power at the Crossroads
I was quite shocked to read the following post yesterday:
Then I followed up on it here:
In short: “The UK government has proposed a bill to make Internet service providers automatically block websites dubbed “esoteric material”. That means people in the UK could be shut off from websites the UK government deems “esoteric” unless they go in and manually un-tick their network filters.”
I may be naive but I doubt whether this initiative will be followed through. But it is symptomatic of the uneasiness of the Plutocrats as to how much power the so called “esoteric websites” have been having in what Dane Rudhyar called the reorientation and repolarization of human consciousness. Rudhyar was one of the seed man of the New Aga cultural revolution, one of the brightest minds of the previous century and a pioneer of modern transpersonal free-will astrology. He was a brilliant writer, painter and composer. I have reread his article “Astrological Timing: The Transition to the New Age,“ (source: http://www.khaldea.com/rudhyar/at/at_pro_p1.shtml) where I found a passage on how Rudhyar envisions the transition to the New Era of consciousness, which might be of interest to James Cameron, the British Prime Minister who proposed the bill, if only he were able to listen:
What seems to me more likely is that the very basis of our science, our technology, our way of programming social existence will be altered. It may not be altered rapidly by man-made wars and revolution or by telluric upheavals. It may not be altered everywhere at the same time. There may be “germinal groups” co-existing with an increasingly deteriorating technocratic Establishment, whether at the global, or only at the national level. It is not even inconceivable that the parallel to a Roman Empire after the beginning of the Aquarian Age will be a network of deeply spiritually intent groups and communities whose members will not only intellectually, but occultly or “telepathically,” realize their unity as components of the global organism of MAN while the “Barbarians” will be represented by the power-greedy politicians, the intellectuals, the worshipers of university knowledge and of machine-technology. The roles may thus be reversed, but eventually the followers of the old order would become spiritually fecundated by those groups which they probably would have tried to destroy, as Germanic tribes became Christianized and transformed by the symbols, the language, the social concepts and to some extent the manners of those they conquered.
