I wish to begin a new thread, see what you think. The idea is that we as a species have lost (for the most part) our connexion to the Divine. We have lost our divine connexion, the holiness, the wholeness. In days long ago, those of Abraham, Zarathustra, the Rishis, the Ancient Shamans, and Druids our world view (or point-of-view or sense-of-life) was unfragmented. The myths and legends of the Bushmen, the Mundas, the Aboriginals, the Ainu, the Oceanics, the Siberians, and the Native Americans stand to show us that it is possible to experience holistically. Our world view need not be fragmented into the scientific, the mathematical, the logical, the statistical, the philosophical, the historical, the aesthetic, the ethical, the emotional, the political, the religious, and the spiritual. This the problem of not only what is laughingly called "post-modernism", but Modernism itself. All the way back to where science emerged from "natural philosophy", Religion from theology (in the classic Greek sense of the meta-physics), where the polis killed Plato. In the Great Centers of Civilization, Mezo-America, Ancient Nubia, Egypt, Greece, the Middle East, the Indus Valley, the Iranian Plateau, the Han China, there is plenty of evidence that this problem--the fragmentation of experience--is indeed ancient and endemic. Is this idea worth exploring in this forum?
