How the Post-modern World Is a Rebirth of the Ancient World

Subtitle: The final end of the classi-modern world

Introduction

For the sake of clarity and for the easy understanding of my position in this article, I will like to divide the worlds or epochs of human history in this manner: the ancient world or epoch, the classi-modern world or epoch and the post-modern world or epoch.

By the ancient epoch, I refer to the time before Christianity and Islam when the native religions ruled the world. The classi-modern epoch refers to the time when Christianity and Islam subdued these native or ancient religions to become the major religions of the world.

The post-modern epoch is the currently burgeoning epoch which has just taken over the classi-modern epoch and it is the one we are already experiencing. I have chosen according to my discretion not to separate it from other epochs by attaching any of these religions to it.

Stating My Position

The ancient epoch defines the times of the ancient world and it my position that the post-modern world which has began has a lot of the character of the ancient world.

You may have wondered what the post-modern world will be like or if whether there will be another world after this one. I want you to be rest assured that yes there will be another world after this one and this world which has already come is the post-modern world.

So, I want you to become aware of the new world that now rises before your very eyes which many are not aware of, and this world is the post-modern world and which is a rebirth of the ancient world long before the classi-modern world began.

The post-modern world is a rebirth of the ancient world for two very important reasons which are in the expression of cosmic spirituality and in the recognition of the unity of spirituality and rationality.

These two very important reasons why the post-modern world is a rebirth of the ancient world is what I want to discuss with you in this article and especially in the next two sections.

The Expression of Cosmic Spirituality

In this regard, I must begin by saying that I have always had a fascination for the ancient world and it is very obvious from my articles on this blog. My fascination for the ancient world has been because of a deep sense of cosmic spirituality that man had at that time.

All the native religions of the ancient world had this very broad and unconfined spirituality that was the zeitgeist of their age.

I find this cosmic spirituality to be one of the two major distinctions between the ancient world and the classi-modern world which had the sense of a narrow and personal spirituality which it failed to attach to the universe.

The classi-modern world was a world where a major part of mankind had lost every sense of cosmic spirituality and had embraced a personal one that applies to man and God alone but not to the universe.

This goes further to be that in the classi-modern world there was an explicit division between the physical world and the metaphysical world. Both were assumed to co-exist in the universe.

This becomes more clear in the classi-modern tritheology of heaven, hell and Earth, where heaven and hell are conceived as the only spiritual places and they are not seen as existing in the physical universe which is considered as a separate place where the Earth exist.

But in the ancient world this was not so. Even though they had their own doctrines of hell and heaven, these doctrines never displaced the spirituality of the Earth and of the wider universe.

To the ancients there was no such distinction between the physical world and the metaphysical world. The universe in which we live and in which they found themselves was a metaphysical place.

All this changed in the classi-modern world where personal spirituality replaced cosmic spirituality and the tripartite spiritual relationship between God, man and the universe became lost to a major part of mankind as only the bipartite spiritual relationship between man and God became the emphasis.

All that was now left of spirituality became as it defines the relationship between man and his new, personal God. I say “personal God” because in the ancient world the view of God was of an old, “transcendent God” and this was because of their cosmic sense of spirituality.

The “transcendent God” is the One that is associated with the ancient spiritual trinity of God, man and the universe and that is qualitatively different from the view of the personal God that is the One associated with the spiritual duality of man and God.

The ancient belief in the tri-spirituality of God, man and the universe are evident in the architectural structures of their temples which showed some pattern that could be matched to the heavens.

These are no coincidences, they are a reflection of the cosmic spirituality of the ancient world, and I must make it clear that cosmic spirituality is the tripartite spirituality God, man and the universe in a holy alliance.

It is a complete form of spirituality than the personal one that is a bipartite spirituality that involves only a personal God and man in alliance and which characterized the classi-modern world.

The classi-modern world is over and there is now a real return of cosmic spirituality and the “transcendent God”. We are returning to the the true holy trinity of God, man and the universe. This is the complete form of spirituality.

The fading structures of the classi-modern world are being hurriedly dismantled as the wisdom that is of old is being firmly established. The world is experiencing the final stages of the rebirth of the ancient world.

Now, in this post-modern world or era, we are returning to the consciousness of cosmic spirituality though in a different manner from how it was conceived in the ancient world. 

A deep and profound awareness of cosmic spirituality is beginning to sprout upon the Earth and it shall inundate all mankind.

The personal spirituality of the classi-modern epoch was a pretentious version of cosmic spirituality and it became easily a selfish one and even the purity of religion cannot be found in the classi-modern world. Pure religion was the real practice of the ancient world.

Any of the classi-modern religions was a corruption of the pure spirit of religion found in the ancient world where it was the vehicle or channel for expressing and communicating cosmic spirituality.

This is because in the classi-modern world, religion was the channel for expressing and communicating personal spirituality. This was the corruption of religion and its intent.

It is no wonder true spirituality became a rapidly decreasing quality in the classi-modern epoch as materialism swept across mankind. Personal spirituality cannot in any way be the push-back against materialism.

The expression of cosmic spirituality is the end of materialism and all its resulting vices. Cosmic spirituality is the true meaning of spirituality and it must not be lost no matter how the ages transform and how man advances.

We must perceive the wide, cosmic spirituality of God, man and the universe, and not exclude any from this trinity and eternal union.

The holy trinity that the classi-modern world presented was that between “the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit” and the focus of personal spirituality was about God and man excluding the universe.

This greatly plagued science in the classi-modern era when the universe was approached without spirituality. This was the major reason why there was no understanding in the classi-modern world and why we had to discontinue the progress of the classi-modern world.

The post-modern epoch gives the universe its own right to the expression of spirituality and approaches the universe as such. This is why the post-modern age could really be referred to as the true age of science.

Science in the classi-modern age was without spirit or soul. It was a blind enterprise that couldn’t be the channel for cosmic spirituality.

But all this has changed in the post-modern world. In the post-modern world, science has become the channel for the expression of cosmic spirituality. Scientific knowledge has undergone a qualitative transformation and is now the discourse of the Gods.

We do not seek a spiritual abode up in the sky for we are now conscious of our breath in a pulsating spiritual universe. We now discuss in a scientific manner the spirituality of God, man and the universe.

In the ancient world, this discussion would have been in a religious manner involving religious rituals and practices. However, in the post-modern world, what we call scientific experiments have become the analogy of religious rituals in the ancient world.

Scientific experiments would evolve to become scientific rituals (of cosmic spirituality). This will be the ultimate definition and purpose of scientific experiments in the post-modern world.

The exact unity of God, man and the universe manifested in the religious character of the ancient world is now what is manifested in the scientific character of the post-modern world.

Before in the classi-modern epoch, scientific experiments were done to prove theories, to test the universe, to investigate matter and so on, but in post-modern epoch, scientific experiments are done to express cosmic spirituality and to consciously participate in the holy trinity and in the spiritual interaction of God, man and the universe.

Until we see how the consciousness of cosmic spirituality underlaid the religious rituals of the ancient world, we may never understand now how it will also underlie scientific experiments in the post-modern world.

There will be a change in the attitude with which we approach scientific experiments which will no longer be seen as practical investigations but as spiritual experiences just like religious rituals and this is after scientific truths have become natural in the world.

In the ancient world, religious truths were a natural phenomenon and so it will be for scientific truths in the post-modern world. Scientific truths will be natural in the post-modern world and which is already the case.

These analogies that I now make between the ancient world and the rising post-modern world cannot become clear to you until you realise that THE WISDOM OF THE ANCIENT WORLD IS REVIVED IN THE POST-MODERN WORLD.

The new experience and results of cosmic spirituality will only become more understandable as the post-modern era progresses, but in this article it suffices that we herald and talk about it.

So, we can conclude this section by saying that the post-modern world is a rebirth of the ancient world as it revives and preserves cosmic spirituality which will however be expressed by a new scientific culture and not a religious one.

Let’s now proceed to discuss the unity of spirituality and rationality found in the ancient world and how it is also found in the post-modern world. 

The Unity of Spirituality and Rationality

In the ancient world, we find the unity of spirituality and rationality and this is not a position that I alone share. We find this in the education system of the ancient people of Kemet now called Egypt.

In ancient Egypt or Kemet, they had a system of education that was called the mystery schools and in these schools students were taught by priest. When you look into this system of education, especially its structure, you will see the evidence of the balance of spirituality and rationality.

They were so interwoven in the ancient world. They sought to comprehend the mysteries of the cosmos in a spiritual and rational way and they found and taught that logic is divine.

Take note that the spirituality which I speak of is the cosmic spirituality; it was the spirituality that the ancient world had. Their teachers were called priests in order to emphasize their spiritual roles in the society.

What they called mystery schools could pass for temples in the ancient world. They honoured God and knowledge on the same ground. The mystery schools were a spiritual place of worship for the honour of the transcendent God by the tutorship of knowledge as by the worship of Him.

This mystical union between spirituality and rationality became lost in the classi-modern era and this was maybe because of the rise and the influence of Grecian philosophies which over a short time after Pythagoras and the fall of Pythagoreanism lost every sense of spirituality and became solely rational.

Whatever kind of spirituality one can identify in the classi-modern world, it could only be a vestige of cosmic spirituality that had become lost over time. The broad consciousness of the spirituality of the universe was not emphasize or appreciated in the classi-modern world.

As the classi-modern world burgeoned and increased, many of the structures of the ancient world fell and man entered a new era when the union between spirituality and rationality was lost. This was the greatest tragedy of the classi-modern world.

In the classi-modern world, spirituality became an object of mockery and we thought ourselves wiser than the ancients. This is an error. While we may claim that knowledge has increased since after the ancient world, we cannot say the same of wisdom.

Wisdom is what guides and determines our methods and structures for the acquisition of knowledge, it is the canvas upon which we impress knowledge. So, if the canvas is not there, how then can the artist paint.

The post-modern world is the return of the mystical union between spirituality and rationality; it is a return of the wisdom of the ancient world even if we redefine and advance their knowledge.

What the post-modern world has done is to place the mystical union of spirituality and rationality on a scientific basis. In the post-modern world, we have a purely scientific construction of reality.

This is not to say that there were no elements of science in the ancient world, there were, but in the ancient world, religion served as the base for the union of spirituality and rationality.

In the ancient world, religion served as the channel to express their cosmic spirituality which is what is interwoven with rationality. But in the post-modern world, science is the channel for the expression of cosmic spirituality which is also interwoven with rationality.

This is second reason why the post-modern world is a rebirth of the ancient world. This is why we can see the classi-modern epoch as a necessary but temporary stage that must be a part of the rebirth of the ancient world to the post-modern world.

The whole classi-modern era was an era of birth pangs that were to produce the post-modern world and which is a rebirth of the ancient world. This is why the classi-modern epoch was an epoch of tremendous pain and unprecedented bloodshed in the history of the world.

This is why even in the scientific basis of the post-modern world, we still find this inseparable connection with the ancient world which was established on religion. The post-modern world is a rebirth of the ancient world.

The post-modern world is a restoration in a new scientific culture of cosmic spirituality, the transcendent God and the mystical union of spirituality and rationality of the ancient world.

So, we should see the classi-modern world as not just an interruption of the ancient world, but as a necessary stage to the final metamorphosis that will give rise to the post-modern world which is the final stage of mankind’s development. This is a cosmic view of the evolution of the human society.

In the classi-modern world, we had the loss of the transcendent God and cosmic spirituality. The world evolved on its own with personal spirituality and rationality and this produced the evidence of a banal and baneful mankind.

The evil of the classi-modern epoch was as a result of the incompleteness of wisdom that should have been uninterrupted right from the ancient world, but like I said, it was a necessary stage.

So, what one would have called a gradual deterioration of the ancient world as these aspects of wisdom became lost is actually a gradual transformation of the ancient world to the post-modern world.

The translation from the ancient world which was based on religion to the post-modern world which is based on science is obviously a qualitative transformation based on the new rebirth and application of wisdom.

The ancient wisdom about man and his place in the universe still stands. To make you understand this better, I will like to refer to what we call the scientific method.

Before, in the classi-modern era of science, we had what one can call the Newton’s scientific method, and this method was what every physicist followed in the presentation of theory and in the practical investigation of the universe.

So, despite the revolutionary theories that came after Newton and that challenged and refuted Newton’s theories, these theories still followed Newton’s scientific method. This is a case of an increase in knowledge and the preservation of wisdom.

This is analogical to what I now inform you about how the post-modern world is a rebirth of the ancient world. The ancient wisdom of cosmic spirituality and the unity of spirituality and rationality are revived and preserved in the post-modern world.

Though this goes further to be a new scientific basis for experiencing and interacting with reality, the analogy still stands in that the wisdom of the ancient epoch is the same wisdom of the post-modern epoch.

Though this goes further to be a new scientific basis for experiencing and interacting with reality, the analogy still stands in that the wisdom of the ancient epoch is the same wisdom of the post-modern epoch.

Conclusion

The post-modern world will unfold as the rebirth of the ancient world. The post-modern world is not just the restoration of knowledge and truth, it is also the restoration of harmony and the universal Kingdom of God.

I have begin to unveil to you in this blog the mystery of the universe in a full expression of cosmic spirituality and the unity of spirituality and rationality. So, what characterizes what I call the new scientific method is the wisdom that is of old.

So, in this post-modern world, you are making contact with the spiritual wisdom that was in the beginning of the ages and which has transformed itself to make the character of our age. The old has come anew.

Finally, we only have to celebrate the transition of the ages from the ancient age to the classi-modern age and now to the post-modern age which is but a rebirth of the ancient age of truth, unity and cosmic spirituality.

Until next time,

I will be here.
