"If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."

alpha-egyptian.jpg Have we always had the mind we have today, or is the mind a constantly changing concept? If we read ancient mystical texts, or study concepts such as the Akashic Records, it appears we do not have a mind today that the ancients would recognize.

Rather, the Akashic Records suggest a mind that is all-encompassing, holistic, and complete with all knowledge of the universe. They are a concept the mind can wander through, as if a great library of all knowledge, and all meaning.


Could our ancients have understood such a concept? In ‘The White Goddess’ the writer Robert Graves put forward his idea that ancient civilizations had a different form of consciousness.

Speaking of ‘lunar’ and ‘solar’ knowledge, solar is modern knowledge based on the rational, whereas lunar knowledge is intuitive and grasps things as a whole, compared to solar, which is compartmentalized, breaking knowledge up into manageable bits.

Egyptologist Schwaller de Lubicz would agree. He argued that the ancient Egyptians had a totally different knowledge system to us, again seeing the world as a whole. To him, the modern mind acts as a spectator in the world, looking at things from the outside. Ancient knowledge involved taking part in the world; being connected to its totality.

He even went as far as arguing that man has not evolved, but devolved to a near animal state in modern times. But more than this, he also believed that the ancient Egyptians had inherited this previous way of thinking from a previous civilization.

Personally, I think our minds have not caught up with our lifestyle changes and technoligcal advances.

But how can the mind objectively observe itself?

Cool post. Thanks!

~There is no God and we are his prophets.~

-Cormac McCarthy-

Man is superior to the stars if he lives in the power of superior wisdom. Such a person being the master over heaven and earth by means of his will is a magus and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom
