A Counterpoint to the Organism Of Humanity
The following post is in response to The Organism of Humanity: an Analogy by Anonymous.
When addressing esoteric matters, I have found it useful to switch my usual exoteric way of interpreting ideas to a concentrated focus on esoteric principles in order to intelligently discuss what I see, hear or read. I find this helps keep me closer to reality. That being said, I will continue…
To begin with, I find Anonymous's analogy extremely well-written, creative and inspiring. However, in keeping with my opening statement on addressing esoteric matters, I would argue (from a purely esoteric perspective) that while his compelling message may be profoundly useful for an individual to contemplate, practice or promulgate there is simply no esoteric principle to support its viability as a collective endeavor neither national, international nor global. Here’s why…
Laurency describes in some detail the development of human consciousness as falling along a continuum of five stages of consciousness development containing 777 levels or sub stages. Laurency also posits that negative emotional consciousness dominates the first three stages (or 700 levels) of development.
What’s more, Laurency goes on to reveal that “The difference in age between human individuals can amount to seven eons (7 billion astronomical years)”. In addition, he also says “the immense difference in experience of life is greater than ignorance can possibly grasp.”
Given just these two profoundly significant esoteric principles, it’s not difficult to see the virtual impossibility of five divergent levels of human consciousness (all existing at the same time) yet eons apart in their consciousness development, ever coming together in the spirit of cooperation and brotherhood (or for any other reason for that matter). What’s more, In deference to the same esoteric principles, it is unlikely that the replacement of competition with cooperation is apt to occur any time in the near future. As Laurency says, “Consciousness development is a very slow process”!
