New Agers and new age confusions

James comment:

…the 19th century was unusual in producing so many f*ckups in such a short period of time. Maybe you should incorporate this into some sort of reverse eonic effect. Blavatsky, Darwin, Gurdjieff, Nietzsche, Guenon, Coomaraswamy,Schuon, Crowley, etc….one has to wonder what the hell was going on.

You are certainly on to something, as I have noted before: check out the eonic effect on the issue of modernity, the modern transition, and the so-called Great Divide, and you will see why the logic of post-transitional modernity can result in confusion.
The question of these so-called ‘New Agers’ is a history of the ‘new age’ fallacy, and the misreading of epochs, something the eonic effect straightens out. The only real new age is the rise of modernity itself.
You are thus right, and I should comment on this further soon.
The Great Divide
