There is a movement to open to the human spirit and it’s a very real and valid movement, but on the other hand, it’s almost like a race against time. We look at the Kogee, in fact on that great island right off of the coast of Columbia in South America, and the Kogee who have been saying over and over that the Earth is dying, that all the great snowcapped peaks are going, the snows of Kilimanjaro, whatever it was, they’re not there anymore. The whole shape and structure of the Earth is being radically changed by forces we have released. So, we’re in a time of real peril and the rise of the human spirit is an attempt to counter ideas. So it’s a conflict between the forces of darkness which I relate religion to and the forces of light through the great spiritual giants who have appeared on Earth and they generally always meet with disaster. So, in the end, in the current crisis that we face, we find this force of darkness reaching all the way back into conception and the womb itself to we can easily say contaminate the human species. The child is being destroyed as a true human even before birth and people will say what are you talking about? And you have to really look closely at all the stuff coming out and you’ll find we’re in a dire plight concerning the next generation.
We have our, what is it, baby Einstein. We have the women wearing things around their pregnant bellies, the sound waves are now are going to profoundly improve the human. The child will be born a genius, and all these things that are going on which represent the attempt to take over every tiny facet of the natural intelligence of our Earth and turn it into the servant of intellectual invention. Of course that’s exactly what Goethe warned against and so many others have. As you say, Shelly with their Frankenstein’s, she clearly saw what we have going on today. There is a growing awareness of the death of spirit and the rebirth of the spirit is a real possibility as our only saving grace and one interesting part of that is, my friend Robert Sardello saying, the way to organize all this is through surface of the Earth instead of looking at the Earth as simply a source of rape and pillage in our mining and all these things that we’re doing. Just suddenly return to our senses and realize we must serve the Earth, protect and nurture her because she is our Mother. She is our nurturer. From her must come our nurturing and protection and if we don’t, then we have given in to the forces of darkness on every hand.
I think of the Mathematician Kurt Godel, an unknown Mathematician. Russell and Whitehead had come out with this incredible work in mathematics that was the bible of the whole scientific and academic world for two or three decades because it was a remarkable work of intelligence and intellect and skill to show through mathematics any proposition, anything that the human mind could come up with, through mathematics the truth or falsity, the validity, the worth of that could be tested mathematically and mathematics emerges then as the final, final rock bottom bastion of truth and how we can find truth in life is through mathematics. And this was of course embraced by the whole scientific academic world. No institution of learning or higher learning would dare not acknowledge this.
Godel came along, he looked at it, saw the absolute infallible kind of nature of the argument and then selected, looked at the argument from kind of the back and front, they looked at the time of starting at the end and working their way to the beginning, that isn’t what he did but he found that very theorem they had come up with to be used to show the absolute falseness of the theorem itself. The theorem would disprove its own self if looked at from just a slightly different point of view. So Godel really represented a remarkable feat of mind in that respect, sort of a self-corrective function going on. That seems to be the case in a lot of it, finding that science as a mode of thinking, a way of being. Creating the civilization it has could arise only in Christianity. Why, because only Christianity had demonized the body and all physical things which automatically included the Earth. The Christians, certainly more than the original Muslims, really considered the Earth their enemy. Natural process was unnatural and so on, and embracing of death, leading to the happy hunting grounds, as preferable to allowing nature to flourish. And we look at the great systems of thought that arose out of that. People don’t realize that Freud showed a tremendous fear of the natural process and spoke of our great enemy, nature, who does all this to destroy us with earthquakes and he goes on, a very neurotic mind, that the only possible protection we had against this ruthless, mindless destructive nature was to band together under the guidance of the very finest scientific principles. He then says, of course, that which was said five centuries ago by the first of the Bacons, wrest nature to her knees, force from her all her secrets and use them to control her totally.
And that became the great driving force behind all scientific process that finally emerges as victorious about a hundred years ago. To then speak of natural process is almost to be unscientific. And to allow a child to grow up in their natural state would obviously mean illiteracy, ignorance, barbarity, brute-ness, back to the cave man and so forth. Whereas you’re talking about returning to the true spirit and nature of what the human being should be and was at one time. And he know he was at one time because of the few remaining cultures who live in a reality system totally different than ours. And we don’t believe that.
