Iron Age - The Age of Death

The search for something higher is becoming desperate, as impurity and decadence become extreme. Human beings by this time are totally chained to the vices, creating unlimited sorrow and unrest. It is the age of utmost decline in moral, ethical and spiritual values. Conditions of chaos and anarchy under the guise of democracy have totally overtaken the system of divine monarchy. The masses are continually being incited on the basis of differences of language, religion or political belief. People are against themselves, others and nature. The world is divided and power games are rife. The actions of caring group may benefit some but it is always at a cost to others.

Religion as a basis for living is supplanted by scientific thinking. Science is a "god" which reduces everything to material values. Perverse thnking permeates all levels of society. The poor are against the rich, blacks against whites, brothers against sisters through obliviousness of our common origin. There is total disruption in family life, which is reflected in the community, in the city, in tha nation and in the world.

Towards the end of the Iron Age all conditions become extreme. Society becomes degraded and dehumanised. The persuit of material ambition is held as the sole aim and object of existence. "Eat, drink and be merry" is the catchphrase of the masses without thought for consequences.

Respect is replaced by conceit, mistrust and sexual promiscuity. There are many demonstrations and revolutions. Power changes hands rapidly and in the final hours of the Iron Age, the weapons and equipment are manufactured which can bring about the physical transformaton of the world. Souls are liberated from their bodies and return to the soul world. The river of history has run its full course.

Copper Age - The Age of Duality

This age is the beginning of recorded history. The virtuous state, or the ability to perform truthfully, has been lost and that missing gap has to be filled in. Thus the search to gain back the lost paradise begins, though is is truly "lost". The elements of nature combine to produce changes of catastrophic proportions, so much so that even the buildings are buried to such a depth that architectural traces are only now being discovered. The ways and acts of the deities, however, are remembered and they become the figures of our myths and legends, devotion and worship.

The original race is shattered over the face of the earth. Some of these "pockets of civilization" become isolated and in such hostile conditions rapidly degenerate, forming "primitive" or "tribal" societies. Large groups of immigrants from India emerge in Egypt, Sumeria and Babylon, still carrying remnants of the most elevated culture and technology the world has ever known. However, unable to meet the challenges offered by the harsher conditions, they too experience rapid decline. We find a preoccupation in the mythologies of all the major, ancient civilizations about a "lost paradise" and the "beautiful gods and goddesses" who ruled there. Pantheism proves that our ancient civilizations are descended from the original deity civilization.

Ideologies emerge in an effort to rationalise and revert the fall that is occurring, but no-one has sufficient power to bring the tatters of humanity back together. Such attempts have instead served to separate various cultures ever more.

Silver Age - The Decline

Inevitably the slow decline of things starts to be noticed. As spring imperceptibly creeps into summer, the Golden Age paradise becomes a "semi-paradise", a Silver Age.

Its beginning is marked by the changing of dynasties; from that of Lakshmi and Narayan to that of Rama and Sita which lasts 12 generations; this is remembered as the "Moon Dynasty". The deities (so called for their divine actions) are discharging their original power and qualities through their actions which effects the whole kingdom. Comparing the Golden Age and Silver Age is somewhat like comparing the effect of the sun on colours at full-light and its effect at half-light. The colour and beauty of things are still there but their richness is a little dulled.

In the relationship amongst souls there is still pure love, but the population is increasing, the kingdom is expanding and for convenience is divided into principalities. Material resources are therefore being spread more thinly over a wider area to meet a greater demand. The souls who entered this play are gradually becoming attracted to the things of the senses. Material beauty first allures the soul more and more in each successive birth, into the world of the senses and sensual desires. Though there is hardly any negativity or sorrow, the quality of all things is a little less. There is a difference in the degrees of bliss, power, purity and prosperity.

Golden Age - The Age of Truth

In the beginning, each member of society plays exactly that role for which his or her natural qualities are best suited. Some have the qualities to be rulers and others have the qualities to be subjects. It is a hierarchical society based on divine virtues. This means that different roles are based upon intrinsic qualities and not on false notions of grandeur and social inequalities. Because each soul plays the role to which it is best suited no one complains or covets the role of another. Though there are rulers and subjects, there is neither enforced authority nor submissive subordination. The rulers are simpy those who have the greatest virtues and natural wisdom.

The system is held together like a perfect, crystal lattice. Everything is at its highest stage of purity and beauty. Concepts such as value, profit and loss, misery, poverty, sorrow and death do not exist. In a society whose members have much more that they need, trade and exchange are carried out mainly for distribution purposes. With such universal prosperity, and internal and external harmony, shortage and the misery it entails are unimaginable.

The system of the Golden Age is not a conscious philosophy in practice but rather a natural manifestation of a society whose members are in the highest state of natural soul-consciousness. They instinctively feel their realities as souls and not bodies. Being soul-conscious they are automatically the masters of their sense organs and of their environment.

This picture is not the idealized paradise; it does not pretend a perpetual youth of blissful innocence. It is the peak of human civilization in every field of human endeavour; teaching, music, government, drama, linguistics, painting and science. Science is such that it comprehends and harnesses the forces that govern this planet without destroying or polluting the environment. It is the purest use of science and technology at its highest level.

Only the best materials are used in the construction of perfect architecture, the best that nature can provide: gold, diamonds, rubies, etc. The world is a garden in which the seasons vary slightly. Art, dance and music are at their most expressive. There are no norders of land, sea or air. The soul is in perfect balance with all others. Everyone enjoys good health. There is no need for laws or law courts. The only law is love.

The Story Of The World Drama

Contrary to popular theory, our ancestors were neither monkeys nor cave dwellers but human beings who had a deep and natural understanding of the world they inhabited. The original population was small though growing slowly. This period we have termed as "prehistory" simply because written and reliable records of things and events started only about 2,500 years ago. The first age in which everything is at its highest level of purity can be called for simplicity's sake, the Golden Age. That is followed in sequence by the Silver, Copper and Iron Ages and ultimately there is a period of transition from old to new, impure to pure which can be called the Confluence Age.
