This is a most interesting Thread ( and exercise ). The Title HOW WOULD YOU.......? almost renders the response of a leader ( of sorts )... I'll
"I" would gather a krewe ( crew ) of like-minded individuals ONLY and NO groups. After a process of "selection through ordeal" ( testing ) I would
refine the Krewe and vanish from all records of the very process, creating a very "secret society". The purpose of the society would be not only (
by proxy ) to establish the various agendas you ask about, but also to prepare for thousands of years of maintaining the knowledge and basic
"culture" already acquired.... This will require the society to not partake in the worlds cultures as they rise and fall... and ONLY affect and
effect the "world" by proxy or "secret" means.
As to establishing records and some sort of "survival" of certain things for a future time of revelation... A few simple things would be
Three places with identical "records" in positions well hidden, VERY well hidden. The memory and location of same ONLY held by the secret
society. Within a few thousand years the knowledge of same will be planted in various societies yet NOT revealed. So the "leaking" of the FACT would
still be cryptic and for future generations, not the ones being given the hints. Otherwise exposure would be untimely, to say the least.
Music will be used to hand down "a hint of knowledge and awareness" for many, many thousands of years.. This example can already be
noticed in the history of music in these times... The "science" of vibrations, even basic science ( and rules ) are the same from many global
ancient regions and cultures.. Though many think 'Pythagoras'' and "Greek" in relation to this... Pythagoras learned in Egypt for 40 years, then
from the Persians in their lands BEFORE his famous time of Samos.... The intervals and musical "science" has been found in Egyptian flutes from
thousands of years BEFORE Pythagoras.. The same intervals are found in Central and South American ancient cultures.... Handing down "hints" such as
this example, through thousands of years for a "future" time to notice and recognize is one of the purposes I "We" would use music...
Same as 2. yet regarding "symbols and Emblems" as language ( Globally and Regionally ). Leaving an "Archetype Language" ( to be tweaked
by the secret society when and as required through the ages, using the ever useful "invisible hand").
One of the main efforts would need be mathematics and geometry... this almost demands to be hand in hand with the music endeavors... but this language
is independent of subjective cultures... example would be True North... Solstice and Equinox etc etc... The latitudes are not subjective to cultures
in the sense that the north and south make it VERY relative... BUT the Longitude is relative.. see? If for instance the society chooses The Great
Pyramid in Giza for 0 degree longitude.... some future growing collective age might choose a location called Greenwich as the Prime Meridian of the
Using Astronomy / Astrology would be an excellent mathematical and geometric "language" to "hide" the awareness and knowledge of these times.. For
instance... if a Shifting of the Poles happens.. the knowledge of the previous "position" as well as the "new earth and heavens" position can be
illustrated and handed down through the ages...
Granted much will become myth and legends and a secret society will have much work in keeping such things inline through the ages, yet the secret
society will not be like the vast lost cultures that rise and fall ( including the idiosyncratic cultures and beliefs they can create! ).. The society
will not enlighten the masses.. at least not till the world catches up intellectually and emotionally.I guess one can wonder such a secret society may
find there's a REAL society that's been working from the very beginning?
I guess a final example if not warning.. lol .. is that many people imagine Burning Witches a thing of the past... while all the while "Witches and
Wizards" are "burned" practically every day, to this very day! A secret society would need be very secret and NOT like the various secret societies
that will naturally be created in the process of future cultures...
What I would really "do" and not do... is relative to such times and not relative to basic "ideals and ideas" relayed here... So in a word... I'd
leave the world parables and those close "Truth"... I would seek to do as told. How? hmmmm being a musician I have to say this! Practice Practice
Practice!!!!.. lol or in another word... Application. after all books can be burned like any Ol Witch, but the ideas within the book can be
This endeavor can last for 50,000 years if not much, much longer as required.
