Review of People of the Secret referred to in G Con post…lf you can’t understand the eonic efffect, you may as well forget junk new age thinking about cosmic powers…

I was reluctant to review this because my own knowledge could be flawed, but the typical 'new age' stuff about higher intelligences needs caution and I ascribe only speculative status to my own version which is however more sophisticated. The text of WHEE allows absolutely no discussion of this kind of speculation and the model … Continue reading Review of People of the Secret referred to in G Con post…lf you can’t understand the eonic efffect, you may as well forget junk new age thinking about cosmic powers…

An early draft of the G Con archive…updated post here…

...wanted to get it in public asap before the sufis murder me for squealing...Nah, they don't care... https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public?preview=The+Gurdjieff+Con+Archive_PDF_ver1_draft.pdf We have created a crude first draft of our archive of the Old Gurdjieff blog. The result is still rough and not quite userfriendly and we will produce a useful and better proofed version anon. You can't … Continue reading An early draft of the G Con archive…updated post here…

Part 2 Ages, new ages, axial ages, last and first men and an archive of The Gurdjieff Con

Review of People of the Secret /2015/09/28/review-of-people-of-the-secret/ Update: we have no real data here, and it is easy to confuse the ‘demiurgic powers’ and the ‘hidden directorarate’. I am very skeptical about the latter and have misjudged, I think, their place in the creation/onset of religions. I think I should amend my statements to note that … Continue reading Part 2 Ages, new ages, axial ages, last and first men and an archive of The Gurdjieff Con

Two more posts from the old Gurdjieff Con (we are transcribing slowly, will finish soon, will have to select form the thousands of posts)

Bennett, age periods and astrology /2011/08/29/bennett-age-periods-and-astrology/ We should note that J. G. Bennett, while he did not endorse astrology, did revive the confusion over the cycles of the equinox in his delineation of age periods. That has given astrology a venue in the Gurdjieff sphere. Unfortunate. It is hard to believe he could make such … Continue reading Two more posts from the old Gurdjieff Con (we are transcribing slowly, will finish soon, will have to select form the thousands of posts)

Ouspensky and The Bourne Identity /2010/08/28/ouspensky-and-the-bourne-identity/ The Bourne Identity (link still works) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bourne_Identity_(2002_film) I finally got around to seeing the film The Bourne Identity after a curious experience of twice seeing the opening on late night TV as I was falling asleep. It tweaked my curiosity, for a reason that at first escaped me. I never … Continue reading 3 more posts from our old GC: Bourne identity, self-remembering, ouspensky reincarnation under constant psychic attack…
