Amo Boden has done a video in response to an earlier post I wrote about the future of civilisation, assuming that human consciousness develops towards Final Participation.
This is one of my apparently idiosyncratic obsessions - trying to detect and delete abstractions and aiming at redescription in the direction of a metaphysics of Beings having Relationships.
It is my step beyond what Barfield described as Residual Unresolved Positivism - in that I find all kinds of things that even Steiner and Barfield do to be abstract models. Therefore, if the world really is made of beings etc; by being abstract instead of personal, and models instead of relationships - these are Necessarily Ultimately Wrong.
So, civilisation seems to me to be built on abstract modelling of Men and behaviour - on categories of persons, laws, rituals etc - hence ultimately wrong.
My vision of reality, and Heaven, is a society of unique individuals, bound together by love, whose unity is that of common work on the everlasting 'project' of creation.
Hence I tend to think that mortal Man's destiny, in terms of the trend of consciousness, is movement towards this. I see our civilisation as tending to break down; as all its ultimately-wrong abstractions, its categories, its measurements... lose the natural and spontaneous authority that they had at an earlier stage of the development of human consciousness.
I see the Ahrimanic, bureaucratic totalitarian as the opposed movement - which is a demonic-evil attempt to prevent Final Participation by the mandatory (using force and saturation propaganda imposed by omni-surveillance) imposition of arbitrary structure, rule, category, numerical measurement etc.
In the end; we we have an evil official world that is an artificial and unfree 'civilisation' - a parody/ subversion of the ancient civilisation... Or - if we want Good - we will have a conscious and voluntary 'reversion' to the non-civilisation of our 'hunter-gathere' ancestors.
And therefore the end of civilisation.
