Question&Answer > Can absolute truth reach man? (ESOTERICISM EPISTLES - V)
by (2399 reads)
Question & AnswerI would like to continue on the myth of ‘absolute truths’. We will start from this to reach the idea of the ‘Bearers of absolute truths’ which for the humankind, incapable on one hand and helpless on the other, are the tragic bearers of ideological cankers. The question ‘if man cannot reach an absolute truth, can this truth reach man?’ originated from your idea that ‘the esoteric part of esotericism is mysticism’. If I am not wrong, mysticism, which many people confuse with the carnal cults of devotion, is the only dimension where in rare cases, truth reaches the conscience of man through the heart.

Question&Answer > Where did Masonic Solidarity get to? (part 2 - ESOTERICISM EPISTLES - IV)
by (2223 reads)
Question & AnswerIn the century of ‘open society’ where can esotericism be placed, intended as a secret teaching? It is our duty, I think, to wonder if it makes any sense to talk about esotericism ‘today’ or if, on the contrary, we need to focus on new syntheses. Neurosciences and physics of the infinitely small make past ‘secret’ doctrines obsolete; perhaps they still have their charm, also thanks to their intuitions, but they are indeed obsolete… no doubt. In other words, the background where ‘initiatory societies’ operate is very different from that of Pythagoras, of the builders of cathedrals, of Dee and Ashmole, Anderson and so on. We must leave the return to the past to Harry Potter. On the contrary, let’s ask ourselves what it means to be ‘initiates’ in the twenty-first century and what can the Mysteries be.

Question&Answer > Where did Masonic Solidarity get to? (ESOTERICISM EPISTLES - III)
by (2487 reads)
Question & AnswerIn the last four years I have been (unfortunately in vain) busy looking for interest from many brothers, who have instead shown commitment only for their personal interests, their career and/or economic gains. I can’t find the right words in Italian to express the disappointment in seeing that in our Workshops there have been for years plenty of people who had the only interest of establishing relationships in order to trade them or sell them in the so-called ‘external world’; they would boast having contacts for the purpose of the usual intrigues and business that are spoiling the work of the few coherent people still remaining in Freemasonry. Therefore I propose a debate on the subject: ‘Where did Masonic Solidarity get to?’

Alchemy_of_Fire > Introduction to esoteric Psychology
by (3743 reads)
Alchemy of FireWe are going to introduce this topic by dividing it into three parts. The first part deals with Elements of esoteric Psychology, followed by a short dissertation on the Science of Rays; finally the enunciation of the main universal Laws. It would be impossible to develop any further study without this introduction to the terms of the subject.

Question&Answer > Men and Women in Freemasonry
by (2044 reads)
Question & Answer… I think that Freemasonry as we know it and practice it today, organized in lodges and communions, it’s a product of the English eighteenth century, valid for the time and social classes that practiced it. Is the same structure valid for the twenty-first century man? ...I don’t consider a female Freemasonry impossible, although I don’t think that our rituals are suitable for a female group and should probably be ‘revisited’,…I think that certain symbols and instruments are more appropriate for men than women, but perhaps this opinion can be a prejudice resulting from thirty years of activity in a male Freemasonry. Nevertheless I am quite perplexed about a mixed Freemasonry....

Question&Answer > The myth of ‘Absolute truths' (ESOTERICISM EPISTLES - II)
by (2345 reads)
Question & Answer...What is the truth and most of all, where is it? I think that each of us is a fragment of absolute truth in relativity. It is true what I see. It is true what I hear. It is true what I feel. The image I see it's absolute. The sound I hear is absolute. The feeling I feel it's absolute… for me. Moving on another conscience, though, I would find other totalizing truths, relative to dimensions, abilities, clearness and depth of that mind-conscience.

Question&Answer > Homo Religiosus (ESOTERICISM EPISTLES - I)
by (2173 reads)
Question & Answer...I don't have any more illusions about the relation between Freemasonry and initiation. I am absolutely positive that for contemporary man it is rather impossible to transcend anything (the oriental man as well as the occidental man). Furthermore the possibility of an ‘esotericism' or an ‘initiation', at least in Freemasonry, concerns a trite dualistic ontology of a Platonic kind, viz. the ‘essences' up there and the ‘imperfect copies' down here, which contemporary thought has overcome a long time ago....

Freemasonry > Masonic_Instructions Illusion of the form
by (2393 reads)
FreemasonryEverything that surrounds us and that is knowable through our senses, we can say that it exists; usually we say it’s real, although its guise (what we see) is substantially illusory. This is because every representation veils in its form the underlying life that is its cause. Therefore any reduction of metaphysical reality into physical forms (language, symbol, ritual, etc.) as much as it can be close to the metaphysical reality, it’s physical and therefore it’s not real.

Esotericism_Reading > Metaphysics and Cybernetics (part 1)
by (5121 reads)
Esotericism ReadingIn the post-modern era – or rather ‘super-modern', according to the neologism coined by Marc Augè – we feed on radical feelings and ideological preconception towards technology. The followers of Habermas and English analytical philosophy claim to be the epigone of the Light and they generally show great trust in scientific rationality. On the contrary, the heirs of ‘active nihilism' show great scepticism about the ability of technology to escape the net of power and cultural industry. The author – making explicit some implicit premises in Heidegger's thought – postulates the possibility of a ‘third' way that doesn't indulge in easy demonizations or optimistic compliances, but proposes to grasp the relations between the virtual world of cybernetics and the creating imagination of mysticism.
