This ‘New Age’ environment is technologically determined – as all our lives become technologically dependant. In that all-embracing physicality is culmination of a revolutionary enterprise – as one envisioned and instigated 10,000 years before.
At that ancient time, a mental vision was imposed to thereby transform existence. In a rectilinear reordering a geometric discipline was applied; a lifestyle evolved that might persistently augment the natural physical reality of cyclic and cellular biological formation.
In its finality, the 20th-century at last introduced complex mechanised facilities that exponentially augmented a previous Nature-constructed and conditioned ‘reality’. With that orthogonal and rectilinear extreme disciplining of computer-chip geometry came unexpected access to worlds previously only imagined – or even unimagined.
From micro-cosmos to macro-cosmos an entire new Universe is discovered as accessible – to thereby realise our past conceptions and projects yet to be imagined.
Previously extravagant conceptions – as powered Flight, trips to the Moon, Planets and Deep-Sea worlds, Radio and Television – all became everyday realities. Even Teleportation is technically conceivable in an electronically integrated Universe.
That outcome has formed a new ‘Material Reality’. As a computer artifice, ‘World-Mind’ is in input of every event to process and influence its every effect. Thus a technically augmented foundation is laid for a new enterprise as instigating and progressing towards eventually materially realising a completely new Vision.
So what must comprise that New Vision?
The 21st-century world is already reconditioned and sustained by Artificial Intelligence. Powerful calculating machines are pocket-sized, portable and remote connected. The whole Earth is immediately enveloped as the neurological network of an unprecedented noosphere. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noosphere
To best understand and undertake this new enterprise it helps to consider how the present ‘World’ came about.
Neolithic Revolution has since brought-about our ‘Civilisation’ – as organised everywhere in that coherent ‘Imagination’ of its rectilinear productive foundations.
This, still our just-about viable situation, was periodically humanly constructed, all around the world via two then new and ever interdependent enterprises – rectilinear Architecture and Agriculture.
I first experienced that criticality of combination as a ‘Harvest Festival’. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harvest_festival
Still much as it had persisted over thousands of years, in rural England a modestly sincere ceremony was Autumn held in a small and remote Parish Church.
From the self-or forced sacrifice of so many millions of others, in special Thanksgiving for the ending of most technologically terrible World War, a most auspicious event was etched into my childhood memory. A wondrously life-endorsing and celebrating relief was expressed in so continuing our self-supportive way of life – one that the Agriculture and Architecture was there so physically combined and spiritually endorsed.
That long-since constructed and ritually celebrated form of existence was soon to be ended. However, that founding-union of Architecture and Agriculture is yet ongoing – particularly perfectly endorsed as celebrated at an Iconic staged location in Japan – the Shrine at Ise. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ise_Grand_Shrine
There, a ritual ‘Granary’ is persistently maintained. Its Architectural form and implied practical relevance is exactly renewed every 20 years. In neighbourhood fields, as its rice varieties are annually sown and harvested, a societies ‘artificial’ but sole practical way of historical existence is protected as thus ritually organised and persistently preserved.
Such a ceremonial construction and celebration of a New Ordered Existence has yet to be consciously conceived. However, as our technology again overtakes that of Nature, its Architectural formation must lie in a cosmological ordering that promotes collective survival in a social consciousness of the ongoing wondrousness of the material evolution.
