Hey, there. In your first reply, you seemed to think that this is following some sort of cycle? Like, people identifying with this en masse is the
byproduct of a cosmic trend, rather than atavistic tendencies aggravated by cultural dissonance?
I guess they are not mutually exclusive.
edit on 25-1-2012 by Eidolon23 because: (no reason given)
actually, yeah i think it is both....i loved your language, those words fit perfectly to describe what's happening.
there is an atavistic tendency that's been aggravated into mainstream because people are beginning to realize, en masse, that our "modern
civilization" is killing the Earth, and the Soul of Man.
especially the young adults, and younger children are who i'm speaking about. I'm 24, and I realized that this world was FAR OFF from what it COULD
be when i was very very young....and everyone i know (that has an aware & conscious mind) wants to change the world in order to stop the Earth
this aggravation en masse can be seen in the "Green" movement and the ideas about sustainability and carbon foot-prints and "alternative energies"
in the mainstream.
anyway, this trend of cultural dissonance has been growing over generations, and it begins resonating with cultural-participants (humans) at an
increasingly younger and younger age. this will result in a critical mass, and when my generation and the generations after mine come into places of
power, things will change BIG time. the resonation AGAINST the status-quo of supposed "CIVIL" living on Earth cause people to consider
alternative-lifestyles and exploratory journeys of "forbidden","hidden", "secret", and "alternative" worlds.
when people like me resonate with the idea of changing the status-quo, we are EASILY lead into the world of conspiracies,,,and alternative
subjects/history. if it wasn't for my passion to learn about the occult than I would have NEVER known who the Knights Templar are or their role in
history. I think THIS is why Templar mythology has become a popular image in the mainstream....because there is a cultural-level resonation with the
occult (the HIDDEN).
terence mckenna has a word phrase that i've always loved, and describes this atavistic cyclic trend perfecty: The Archaic Revival.
REvival. cyclical. REsonation is cyclical. all vibrations are cyclical. cultural dissonance is when people stop resonating with the government-formed
"culture" and they become dissonant in mainstream society., if this dissonance persists, it will extinguish the old resonance, and you will begin to
have a new resonance, a resonance with the "alternative" & "occult" paradigm in the foreground, and the "government-formed" paradigm in the
this was a long way of saying: yes, i think it's a cycle too. but as to the details of the cycle frequency: who knows? terence mckenna and his
timewave theory was the last great mind that attempted to tackle that subject, IMO.
