The next step in our consideration of the advent of the incarnation of Ahriman into a human vessel will be to look at the genesis of Evil as a force working in tandem with the genesis of modern technology — the “singularity” prophesied by Kurzweil and other transhumanists as the ultimate goal of science being equivalent to the attainment of an anti-Resurrection Body. However, let’s first take a step back and see, in a general sense, how Evil has manifested itself in the body social over the past century. One could say, let’s trace the gradual infection of the social organism, an infection the extent of which goes generally unnoticed by most people.
We’ll begin in 1929. The time period of the Luciferic temptation, from 1929 – 1959, bore a particular character in terms of its manifestation of Evil (note — I use a capital “E” not to indicate any sort of reverence, but rather to emphasize that this is Heirarchical Evil; it matriculates from the Heirarchies of the Left. It is, in a certain sense, evil not merely as “morally wrong” but as a real Force in the development of Humanity). The character of this time period manifested especially in the Ego of the body social, one could say in the spiritual/cultural sphere from the perspective of the threefold social organism. This was indicated by the appearance of the incredibly power-hungry fascist leaders of the time period: Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, etc. Evil motivated individual men, resulting in massive and catastrophic destructive forces being unleashed onto millions of people.
In the next time period, that of the Luciferic and Ahrimanic temptation (1959-1988), Evil manifested itself in the “rights sphere,” as it is called in the threefold social organism. This, in turn, was indicated by the advent of Communism in full swing and all it brought with it — the Cold War, the Vietnam War, etc. In this case, it was not necessarily individual men through which Evil manifested — it was through the “astral body” of the social organism: the body-politic, the people, the “folk” of the Folk-Soul. The fight against Evil became more nuanced; less easy to recognize; more difficult to face. The black/white, good/evil paradigm that applied so clearly in World War II began to rest on shaky foundations.
In the following phase, that of the Ahrimanic temptation (1988-2018), we have been faced with an even more nuanced and hidden form of Evil. It has disseminated further out, into the “ether body” of society: the economic realm of the social organism. Increasingly over the past 28 years, Evil has been injected into the social sphere unrecognized via the quiet influence of corporate greed and corporate political power. Standing behind a two-fold veil, if you will, this Evil is even harder to recognize than the previous two forms, and is almost impossible to avoid or overcome. While most of society remains trapped in the previous two paradigms, seeking out “evil leaders” or “evil nations” upon which to direct their punitive and protective impulses, they lash out blindly until they can recognize the true source of a majority of the Evil in our time — “turning stones into bread,” pain for profit, the guiding star of the modern, multinational mega-corporation.
Where does that lead us now? What is the form that Evil takes in the final day of temptation (2018-2047)? We can be sure that this will involve Evil moving into the physical realm itself, or as the video at this website happily assures us, into the very walls around us. This form of Evil is the most nuanced, the most hidden, and the hardest to confront. Most people do not recognize it as anything close to an Evil. However, it is the very method and medium through which the Ahrimanic element can incarnate in a widespread and direct manner into Earth evolution. Evil has been forced to evacuate the subearthly spheres through the deed of the Etheric Christ, and is now attempting to take up residence on the surface, in the Human realm.
Something that should be kept in mind is the “inversion” that has taken place over the course of the past 90 or so years. In the time of Hitler, Stalin, and World War II, the Evil manifested itself through individual men — but it actually dwelt in the periphery of culture, so to speak. It might be more accurate to say that it dwelt far beneath our feet and only just began to bubble up from below. At this point in time, however, as it begins to manifest itself in the very walls around us, its force is actually proceeding from an inversely related source — individual human beings, particularly Mr. X, who has become the vessel for Ahriman’s incarnation. There are possibly two other human beings we could designate a similar role (one bearing the impulse of Sorath, the other the incarnation of Hitler’s individuality) of acting as a sort of “eye of the hurricane,” a deceptively calm place that is the nucleus of great chaos. So, we have a complete inversion — in the 1930’s, 40’s, and 50’s, Evil acts from the deepest depths but manifests in the individual human being; now, and increasingly going forward into the next 30 years, it acts from within individual human beings but manifests itself in the very substance of the world around us.
From there, the potential is very great that an unwitting public would be directed and controlled entirely unconsciously, through modern technology, by a handful of individuals. Most would be completely unaware that any degree of freedom had been taken away; in fact, by modern definitions of so-called freedom, they may be entirely deluded into thinking they were freer than ever before.
The next section will address further aspects of this genesis of Evil, and what in the way of Forces of the Good that we have directly available to us as “Grail Knights” to conquer these dragons…
