"For the Eschaton, positioned in eternity, all things are somehow coexistent in internal linktime or outside of time.  All events have already happened. internal linkShamanism is a formal technique for viewing this hyperdimensional object outside of time in a three-dimensional way, by transecting it many, many times until an entire picture of it emerges.  The internal linkmushroom evokes a profound planetary consciousness that shows one that history is a froth of artifact production that has appeared in the last ten to fifteen thousand years and spread across the planet very quickly.  But mind in human beings precedes the history of technology and goes back into the archaic darkness."

We have to understand. internal linkWhitehead said, "Understanding is the apperception of pattern as such;" to fear death is to misunderstand life. Cognitive activity is the defining act of  humanness. internal linkLanguage, thought, analysis, art, internal linkdance, poetry, mythmaking: these are the things that point the way toward the realm of the eschaton. We humans may be released into a realm of pure self-engineering. The internal linkimagination is everything. This was internal linkBlake's internal linkperception. This is where we came from. This is where we are going. And it is only to be approached through cognitive activity.

All these images - the starship, the space colony, the lapis - are precursory images. They follow naturally from the idea that history is the shock internal linkwave of eschatology. As close distance with the eschatological object, the reflections it is throwing off resemble more and more the thing itself. In the final internal linkmoment the Unspeakable stands revealed. There are no more reflections of the Mystery. The Mystery in all its nakedness is seen, and nothing else exists. But what it is, decency can safely scarcely hint; nevertheless, it is the crowning joy of futurism to seek anticipation of it.

I am an Eschatologist. By this, I mean to say that I study the way the Earth is coming to an end, a final culmination and consummation of the grand experiment of life. The meteorologist studies the weather, but the eschatologist studies which way the wind is blowing. The Grand Catastrophe, the twin bookend to the Big Bang, is coming. I argue that it’s coming rapidly, certainly within the lifetime of most of the people alive on Earth today. This scares my friends, because they think that an End is equivalent to Death. But birth is the eschatological event of conception, and, seen in this internal linklight, an end does not have to be a nullifying event; it could, just as easily, be an unconditional liberation.

I have seen the Eschaton many, many times, approached it from a multitude of directions, but all of these have in all ways been the human internal linkdimensions of something which, I now know, extends far beyond ourselves - even though we might be among the only species on the planet to be consciously aware of it. I have seen the growth of human knowledge, as described by our technological prowess, and can say that at some point our prowess becomes, for all internal linkintents and purposes, internal linkinfinite; we will find ourselves extended in ways that can only be described as entirely internal linkmagical. While I had wondered what role the internal linkGaian biota played in this catastrophic transformation of human being, I had always presumed that we were the instigators, and the main players in this final act of life.

How could I have been so blind? Well, my eyes had not been opened. I’ll give myself that much.

"Michel de Certeau said that the end of the world would be 'a white eschatology', that no secret would remain, and no shadow. Everything being revealed in an absolute spotlight, there would be a stupor', an absorption of all objects and of all internal linksubjects in the act of seeing."

The Greek word eschatos refers to the last things, the final things.  The Eschaton is a neutral way of naming what some call the Buddha Matraiya, some people call it theinternal linkUFO internal linkintervention at the end of history, and some call it the second coming.   It's the last thing;  the Eschaton.  What I think is happening is that all internal linkboundaries are dissolving;  between men and women, between society and nature, and ultimately the boundaries between life and death.  We are going truly beyond ambiguity, beyond syntax, We've been trapped in a kind of demonic simulacrum for 25,000 years, created out of internal linklanguage.  Now the accelerating internal linkprocess of involuted connectedness characterizing this Whiteheadian progression of epochs toward the internal linkconcrescence, is in fact being fufilled.

"Western religion has its own internal linksingularity in the form of the apocalypse, an event not placed at the beginning of the universe but at its end.  This seems a more logical position than that of science.  If singularities exist at all it seems easier to suppose that they might arise out of an ancient and highly complexified cosmos, such as our own, than out of a featureless and internal linkdimensionless mega-void.

the ins and outs True Hallucinations by Terence McKenna and Dennis McKenna

Science looks down its nose at the apocalyptic fantasies of religion, thinking that the final internal linktime can only mean an entropic time of no change.  The view of science is that all internal linkprocesses ultimately run down, but entropy is maximized only in some far, far away future.  The idea of entropy makes an assumption that the laws of the space-time continuum are internal linkinfinitely and linearly extendable into the future.  In the spiral time scheme of the internal linktimewave this assumption is not made.  Rather, final time means passing out of one set of internal linklaws that are conditioning existence and into another radically different set of laws.  The universe is seen as a series of compartmentalized eras or epochs whose laws are quite different from one another, with transitions from one epoch to another occurring with unexpected suddenness."

Ouroboros - what comes around... Jean Baudrillard Marshall McLuhan

The internal linkouroboros of internal linkinformation internal linkflows finally feasts not only on the social but on internal linktime and space as well. This is where implosion phases into the apocalyptic–voided of redemption, but no less absolute. internal linkBaudrillard's haunting image of man as nothing more than a internal linknode, a passive switch channeling internal linknetworks of influence, is but a morose inversion of the subject at the end of history, with the final revelation being a thousand screens and satellites. This media eschatology is not peculiar to Baudrillard. internal linkMarshall McLuhan already spoke of the immersive and all-consuming character of the electronic environment, which shattered linear rationality and opened up an endlessly echoing now. "Time and Space died yesterday," Marinetti boasted decades before that in his Futurist Manifesto, recognizing that technology unleashes an almost internal linkalchemical transmutation of the internal linkreal. "We already live in the absolute, because we have created eternal, omnipresent speed."

Information in formation the Network

 

With internal linkcyberpunk sneers and the ridiculous GAFF of Y2K behind us, we are justified in finding the apocalyptic strain of postmodern critique rather old news. Here is the future, all around us: genetic engineering, internal linkchaotic weather, global fads, cyborg internal linkimplants, robots, personality-modification pills, information everywhere. It's not a picnic, but it's hardly dull or devoid of possiblity. The dominance of the simulacrum has not stopped the creativity of the cosmos, and while "we" may not make the future, the future is certainly being made. It begs us to join in.

It's not that implosion was hogwash, the depleted fantasy of a dystopian philosopher without a internal linkhacker's bone in his body. Instead, we may have stumbled on the most hushed of eschatological secrets: that the apocalypse already happened. In other words, the implosion has occurred, or at least already begun, and yet life still demands to be lived, even if we are now posthumans living it.
