Question&Answer > The myth of ‘Absolute truths' (ESOTERICISM EPISTLES - II)
by (2725 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 (2555 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 (2745 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 (5829 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.

Hidden_History > Freemasonry and Nazism
by (4630 reads)
Hidden HistoryThe difference between initiatory and Nazi-Fascist thought is unmistakable. The former aims at perfecting man, the latter exalts itself and its followers. Freemasonry has always claimed to be the ‘Field of Freedom’ of laic, democratic, tolerant and liberal thought. But its true richness is in the ancient symbols it involves. Biblical mysticism, hermeticism, esotericism and spiritual alchemy are all part of its lexicon. These are the elements that have been manipulated by the promoters of the super-race, as Pierluigi Tombetti’s work explains; we present his preface.

Esotericism_Reading > Second Life: utopia of the second millennium or new globalized shopping center?
by (3840 reads)
Esotericism ReadingThere is a lot of talk about Second Life and the freedom of expression that it guarantees to its users. But is this ‘freedom’ such or, on the contrary, it undergoes the social-economical bonds that rule the conscience of contemporary man? Is Second Life a virtual multiverse of free subjectivity or is it the nth simulacrum of the will to standardize that belongs to the globalized society? The author tries to give an answer, showing the path to a truly ‘free’ cyberspace not ruled by marketing strategies of multinationals.

Freemasonry > Modernism, paradox of ancient mysteries
by (2737 reads)
FreemasonryI think that there can be several convergences between the crudeness of realism and the polemic verve of perennialism. Especially if they are expressed with a rigor similar to science rather than close to the passional and compromising criterion of ignorant cicisbei wearing loud scarves. To ‘call a spade a spade’ is an attitude unwelcome in the ‘upper-class salons’ of certain Masonic groups.

Question&Answer > Salmon and Water – an initiatory trial
by (2618 reads)
Question & AnswerThe Salmon must ‘return’, viz. ‘go back’, which means to go ‘inside’ and if it ‘returns’ it is only to ‘generate’ … What else but the New Man? Why do you use a fish to represent ‘the metaphor of the conscience that re-ascends (transcends) itself to find itself’? A fish that with difficulty re-ascends the water towards the Source (The Light of the inner God)?

Esotericism_Reading > Deleuze, interpreter of the eternal return
by (4439 reads)
Esotericism ReadingGilles Deleuze was gifted with feverish and exalted dialectic ability; in his lessons he covered different subjects with extreme ease. Nevertheless his transgression was limited to the intellectual level, since his private life was that of a normal teacher, married with children. The effort to think the Unthought-of often took delirious and convulsive tones in the Deleuzian writing, such as in the Logic of Sense, a 1969 book.

Esotericism_Reading > Heidegger and the ‘last metaphysician of the West’
by (5646 reads)
Esotericism ReadingHeidegger retrieves the Nietzschean eternal return and puts it in relation with the will to power, considering it as a metaphysical attempt to practice the control of the becoming in the eternal circle, prelude to the domain of con-temporary technology. The Nietzschean superman becomes the master of the earth who, orphan of a dead God, through the weapon of technology starts carrying out the old Baconian dream of total domain on nature.
