The Hidden History of Humanity demonstrates that the chronology of human development is much more ancient than that which is currently accepted by conventional sciences. Using ancient timelines from various traditions, these essays explore the rootraces and cycles that have unfolded thus far, plus what is to emerge in the future.
A Rosemont Journey's insight:

The intention of this work is to re-arrange what HPB has given us into a chronological sequence that will demonstrate the evolution of consciousness in Humanity. That evolution will be from before the race came into existence, up to “Individualisation” when the ‘spark of mind’ was ‘implanted’ in Humanity, through the subsequent evolutions of the Lemurian and Atlantean civilisations and into our current Aryan race and beyond.

Perennial Philosophy

Perennial Philosophy | Ageless Wisdom | Scoop.it

The term "Perennial Philosophy" was coined by Leibniz, but popularized by Aldous Huxley, according to whom it pertains to a primary concern "with the one, divine Reality substantial to the manifold world of things and lives and minds. But the nature of this one Reality is such that it cannot be directly or immediately apprehended except by those who have chosen to fulfill certain conditions, making themselves loving, pure in heart, and poor in spirit." In the spirit of Aldous Huxley, this page explores Eastern and Western traditions of mysticism and religion...

Parmenides and Empedocles

Parmenides and Empedocles | Ageless Wisdom | Scoop.it
Page discusses the Presocratic philosphers, Parmenides and Empedocles...

 

Parmenides was born over two thousand five hundred years ago and lived in southern Italy. Nowadays he is famous as the founder of western rationalism—as the "father" of logic. Ever since the time of Plato and Aristotle his role in the seeding of western culture has been considered essential.

 

But Parmenides was not just a logician. And his teaching was far from reasonable. He described how he had been given all the knowledge he taught by a goddess after he traveled to meet her in another world. This is because he was a priest of Apollo who specialized in the mastery of other states of consciousness.

 

And Empedocles was far more than the cosmologist or scientist he is now made out to be. He was also a sorcerer whose words had a magic power that, for over two thousand years, has bewitched and confused even the brightest of minds

A NEW NON-JONESIAN HISTORY OF THE WORLD

A NEW NON-JONESIAN HISTORY OF THE WORLD | Ageless Wisdom | Scoop.it

While searching for early Christianity in Rome or Asia-Minor, it has to be borne in mind that early 1st century Christianity was very different from the 4th century version, and surely had pagan aspects. The Montanists were Christians and some Attis worshipers, who justifiably saw Amyntas as an embodiment of Attis, were early Chris-tians. Phrygia (Pessinus) was the home of both Attis and Amyntas.

Marsilio Ficino - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Ageless Wisdom | Scoop.it
Marsilio Ficino (1433 – 1499) was one of the most influential humanist philosophers of the early Italian Renaissance, an astrologer, a reviver of Neoplatonism who was in touch with every major academic thinker and writer of his day, and the first translator of Plato's complete extant works into Latin. His Florentine Academy, an attempt to revive Plato's school, had enormous influence on the direction and tenor of the Italian Renaissance and the development of European philosophy.
