Neo-Gnostic: Philosophy of Spiritualism

A philosophical look into the shrinking distance between humanity and the cultures blending together. How we can look at our new technology and contact between peoples. We will look at questions such as how we as people are changing, how we as spiritual beings will change, and the ways our cultures adapt.

From an anthropological perspective, the religions of the world are developing as a neospiritualism. We find ourselves in such a time that barriers of culture are crumbling. The ignorance and seperateness that defined previous generations are gone entirely or well resigned to history. In many senses this is the resuliting influence of the internet and world connectivity technology. The fact of history is that contact has brought different cultures together harmoniously as much as it has brought them into conflict.  Though the harmonious effects of contact are gained through struggle, where as the conflicts are happening out in the open and before our eyes.

There are many senses in which any given human may view the ‘others’ that seem to populate the rest of our little planet. One sense most important to our technical age is the sense in which we are all the same human species. Not many races populating many regions but a single humanity populating a planet.  The cold war displayed long ago that we must grow beyond the vision of our enemies destruction. 

Sci-fi has often depicted us coming to this sense of ourselves as an earthly unity, only upon the invasion of aliens. That humans would need an alien ‘other’ to be against; in order to find any commonality between all races of the planet seems so absurd it may actually be true.

Developing mind; developing spirituality. As we enter a new epoch in technology the earth is seeing humans recognize each other, as such, for the first time. Time and space bend every day as communication around the world is made instantaneous. We find more and more, every day, that people are capable of believing in their similarities and treating each other with an equal amount of respect. Learning about other cultures is just as important now, as learning about ones own culture and history.  It is in a ever shrinking world that we will find the true value in omni-culturism.  Where one understands their own culture as much in its own right as in relation to those around.

A development such as we are experiencing now, deserves recognition. We must note that this conception of others will lead to a new form of continued preservation as well as blending of cultures. Children are growing up viewing the world at their doorstep; computers are replacing books in every classroom. To someone in New York, California seems as close as does Philadelphia. More importantly the gap of countries is breached as well. The safari’s of Africa are in as many homes as there seem to be creatures to view. In many ways we are continually brought closer to the neighborhoods of the vast world.

The great open minded religion of spirituality, that which envisions the practitioner connecting with godhead or that which is. This sense of spirituality or gnosis is a personal knowledge of what is most commonly God or godhead. Philosophic as well as spirituality are developing as the ideas are brought together. Certain aspects obviously containing logical inconsistencies or unsavory views are left behind with little thought. While, the great religious views are continued, often leaving the dogmatism behind.  Most of not all progress in the major world religions can be seen as a crossover of idealogy between religions.  Perhaps, in the begining, it was a defense mechanism in order to retain some semblence of logic; today many if not most religions would be unrecognizable in the eyes of their Patriarch.

This Neo-Spiritualization or Neo-Spirituality is developing individually as well as across the world. Many individuals are beginning to see from new perspectives and the whole of our world benefits from the world view of such embracing open-mindedness.  It is foolish to try to speculate the ways in which humanity is changing.  How can we creatures of the past understand what new developments as our technology will produce in the next generations.
