The Church of the Subgenius

Started this discussion. Last reply by steel styl Oct 25, 2010. 3 Replies

The discussion about the TS made me think about the Church of the Subgenius, who maintain that their Church will be taken over by "normals" who do nothing but recite slogans and that the "real"…Continue

Freud and Jung

Started this discussion. Last reply by J. Spencer Rich Oct 21, 2010. 13 Replies

It seems like a good topic for discussion. Jung references Blavatsky and Besant a couple of times--mostly for bringing Eastern religious ideas to the West. But his work is teaming with investigations…Continue

"On first listening, the "mystic chord" appear hard to analize and a conventional perception of its harmonic functions can seem rather ordinary. It does have a certain character of lightness or weightlessness though, very much resembling…"

"Im a big admire of Scriabin. Of any mystical/occult sources, I think Scriabin is among the very few whos involvment has the most substance. He is definately one of the most gifted composers who ever lived. His vision was to transform humanity into a…"

William Blake

I just read a bio and now I'm plowing through his collected works. What i was curious about was whether any mention had been made of Blake by any of the early Theosophists? Having been mostly ignored during his lifetime, at about the time Theosophy was taking off, interest was just sparking. Also, what is the origin of his mythos? Did the characters of Los and Urizen arise from his imagination or some ancient British myth?

"I'm no scientist--in fact mathematics is one of the main reasons I never finished college. But the very little popular science with which I'm acquainted seems to mirror much of what's presented in The Secret Doctine. That is, string…"

"I think a question has to arrise to counterpoint the basic ideas of this discussion: do we really need to "dumb down" the ideas of Theosophy for the masses? The Secret Doctrine and Isis Unveiled are not exactly easy reading, but…"

"I don't really think of it as bad. In a way, Wain was before his time. In his early years, he was a very popular illustrator of cats before schizophrenia took hold. He is most famous, probably, because of the famous "progression of…"
