This will be a world where perpetual revolution is the norm, where we are called to transcend ourselves, destroy the past, and get more of everything – where we concentrate on getting more – and nothing else counts.
We are being called to transcend themselves and become different, to respond to a more exalted calling, where we will become new beings. This calling is both ancient and modern, combining the old and the new – but the result will be a new world, different than anything before it.
This will call for a new kind of person: one who intuits what everyone feels and conforms accordingly – in contrast to one who thinks critically, and acts independently – as this kind of person is no longer needed or wanted.
This new kind of person will automatically identify with the organization it works for: usually a business organization, which, like any business, is devoted to getting more. These people become more and more wonderful because of all the wonderful things they have – and because they identify closely with other wonderful people. Any morality other than this is not relevant for them, because they have arrived.
These new people will be less like animals and more like objects, in the software sense – where objects are self-contained, self- sufficient beings that can do particular things – in response to requests from other objects – with the whole system designed and managed by superior beings – in the software world the designer, and in the human world, the controllers of the power structure. As mere humans we will be seen as deficient beings, badly in need of a miraculous transformation.
A new kind of Self
The Self in the modern sense has been abandoned in favor of a new kind of Self. The modern Self was something developed by the creative process of individuation, and was unique: his or hers alone; no one else was like her. In the post-modern world, the Self is formed by imitating others: copying the most successful people, their pretensions, and the most successful trends. The people who are most admired are those most skilled at this: being able to identify new trends before others, and abandoning them quickly something better comes along.
This does not mean complete conformity: there will be an abundance of sub-cultures and people can chose which one they want to join and identify with – and these will all be coordinated by a collective unconsciousness – a heritage of our human past.
These people will be busy making themselves look ever better. Other than that, they don’t really do anything – and nobody will notice this minor fact.
Objective reality no longer exists
In this New World people are no longer interested in how the world actually works: in objective or scientific reality. They are no longer interested in reason. They are only interested in beliefs: what other people believe. This is a serious deficiency, to put it mildly, but all cultures have their blind spots.
To put it another way: we are abandoning the modern world, mankind’s greatest accomplishment, and entering another Dark Age.
