It is possible that the gestalt switch from materialism to immaterialism will proceed gradually and spontaneously until it is generally recognized as an anticlimactic fait accompli. If this is the case then there will be very little that any individual or small group could do to expedite the process. On the other hand, the process might be amenable to some form of leveraging by one or more individuals. A proselyte must always remain open to such a possibility.
I continue to be open to the possibility that some sequestered information could serve as a point of political leverage, but there is little more that I can do to pursue that possibility. The next most likely point of leverage is to be found in the intellectual arena where philosophical speculations are supposed to be given due consideration.
There has been a recent upsurge
of speculation surrounding the traditional mind/body problem. This
speculation is still far removed from the immaterialist eschatology that
I advocate, but it is a substantial step in that direction. It does
appear that as the problems with materialism and dualism are seen to be
more intractable there is an increased willingness to reassess the practicability
of immaterialism. I have not yet come up with a presentation of my
ideas that might be expected appeal to the few individuals involved in
that aspect of the discussion.
Sentient beings persist in a state of tension between the material and immaterial poles of existence. That tension comprises the life force. Life is that duality. The cosmos can relax into non-being, which is the ground of all being, in no time and for all time. That is the ebb and flow that is beyond time.
Matter has its fascinations and its disciplines. In our history we have come a long way toward its mastery. The final phase of our history and mastery will occur under the aegis of the larger truth. Only thus will we have the wisdom to complete our errand into the wilderness. This is the prophesied millennium.
I am a pre-millennialist.
The apocalyptic revelation will be tantamount to a messianic advent.
The apocalypse will be in the eyes of the beholders. Those of us
who partake of the paradigm shifting on the Internet will be the harbingers.
All we have to fear is a stage fright that is overcome by our plurality.
Like blind sailors, we grope with the rigging. We need a little sea
chanty. These pages attempt to be useful to that end.
