What is Cultural Synthesis?

Jul 06, 2010 03:36 am

What is Cultural Synthesis?

Cultural synthesis is the harvest of an evolutionary cycle.

Cultural synthesis is the distillation and preservation of the best that a certain civilization has produced.

Like the Hindu god Shiva, who destroys to recreate,

A scanner is now going through human culture to see what can be salvaged…

What essence is worthwhile to be preserved…

A reactor, an attractor, a synthesizer is operating deep within the archetypes of the human psyche,

Exerting a pull towards oneness…

For those who are ready for the harvest.

Culture is not in the libraries or the theaters;

Culture is the hearts and minds of everybody:

It is how and what you think and feel and how you act.

This is the inner individual culture.

The outer culture is then what a society or a group gives to the individual, as a mirror.

It is here that the pre-existing or exiting culture has failed.

Because what people need and are really looking for

Is for identity and meaning.

And neither the organized religions nor science have come up with valid answers for our times.

The prevailing cultural paradigm is the one of multiculturalism

It informs the approach of many forward looking movements, like the Institute of Noetic Sciences.

Yet it has led to a cul de sac, a dead end.

The precursors of multiculturalism started in France with Existentialism in the 1940’s and later with Structuralism in the 60’s.

One could even argue that its remote beginning was associated with Romanticism in 1800.

Then it was that the cult of ruins and the admiration of the fragment was born.

All these cultural movements led to the prevailing idea that

Everything is relative,

No truth is final,

Every culture has equal rights and worth

And, finally, to the hope that out of all the world’s cultures, a global culture will emerge by the fusion of all this variety of elements,

Ranging from the archaic and shamanistic to the ultra technological and virtual.

It is not really a question of high and low culture,

One reserved for the people who have time, money and taste

And the other thrown at the masses

Addicted to sports, soap and novels.

No,

The new culture is equal for everybody, every social class.

Because it gives answers to what people are looking for

In terms of identity and meaning.

Only that- contrary to the naïve faith, hope and belief of the multiculturalists-

It is not coming from a fusion of pre-existing and disparate elements.

It has always existed in the human spirit

It is a center. It is holistic. It is integral.

There are a myriad of theories and religions, avenues of discovery and channeled materials.

We are overwhelmed by an excess of information and a theft of time to digest it.

Humanity has given up on finding something truly new.

Yet a new culture is available,

Which goes much beyond religion and science

And their respective dogmas.

This is a culture of vibration, resonance and correspondence.

Where all the past is gathered, recollected and

Diluted

Dissolved

Transfigured

Into something new

Like the Phoenix being reborn of its ashes.

This culture of oneness goes beyond duality and dualism.

For indeed there are no good and evil, but different expressions of the same evolutionary urge.

Polar energies at the respective end of a continuum,

A spectrum of light and darkness.

A constant search for the mystery and the unknown.

One can tell the present writer that perhaps the reason I am disaffected with today’s culture is because I am growing old. I am indeed getting wiser.

But when I go to trance parties I dance faster than the 18 year olds.

So it is not that I do not understand present trends in youth culture and it is not a question of high and low culture.

I have lived through the high period of human creativity of the late sixties and early seventies.

It was a cultural revolution.

So threatening to the establishment that it had to be diverted and silenced.

I still accompanied what came later, but soon after, all color was gone starting with the late punk.

From then till now has been the reign of black and grey.

Artists, gallerists, cultural managers, even chefs and hairstylists, all adhered to the new uniform of cheap chic.

Fragmentation (and its correlated human isolation, depression and bipolarity) hit an all time high. Collage of cultures and mixed media became the natural way of expression.

Everything goes…

And the last vestiges of truth were relegated to the radical extremist fundamentalists of religion,

For even political ideologies had been discredited or died of natural death.

As an artist and a writer I can see culture from different viewpoints.

This is exponentially compounded by my being a nomad without a fixed abode

And by having been a career diplomat, specialized in big political, economical and cultural international organizations.

But…

More than a cultural synthesis… what this is all about is really about oneness.

As the goal of human evolution.

To reach it, one has to start with unifying all the divergent parts, or bodies of ours,

The physical, the emotional and sentimental, the mental, the spiritual.

Then we are attuning to the integration and unification with our human environment: our blood or chosen family, our human endeavors movements and causes, our common working to save the planet…

Our oneness with mankind is inscribed and imprinted in our core

… If we only listen to the spirit in our inner hearts…

To finish:

We came from an origin, a source where we were one with all.

The real synthesis is the clipping of our experiences as nomads of the universe, wanderers of dimensions.

We are returning.

Because we feel the call.

Because we have gathered in our projections and creations, for we have seen through them…

Because the universe is contracting and returning to source…

It’s the great universal conjunction, the harmonic wave of synthesis.

The healing of the breach, the sealing of the great divide.

The end time for the addictive game of space-time.
