World History And The Eonic Effect on the ‘fourth way’
One of the reasons for this blog, apart from its obvious intent, is to amplify to some degree on some of the issues raised in World History And The Eonic Effect, which has just been listed at Amazon.com. The book discusses the issue of the ‘fourth way’ in world history, and also issues of the ‘new age’, and its mythologies of age periods, a confusion the book clarifies greatly.
The book also exposes the strategy of postmodern anti-modernism that runs rife through the whole of the New Age movement and its ideologies.
In general, the default foundation for whatever we wish to call it, after the term ‘spiritual path’ has been retired, is laid out in a highly generalized historical framework.
More generally the wild claims for ancient knowledge posed by Gurdjieff can be put in a better context, perhaps one without much data, since we have very little, the pronouncements of Gurdjieff providing no remedy for that situation.
