It may be too early to write the history of the new age, but
I am sure people will start to write them soon ! Why should I
not make a start myself first ? I was very deeply involved in
it, I lived at Findhorn "at the heart of it", and now
I have some more and different perspectives .......
..... and, I have belatedly come in contact with academic work
and found it interesting (which I certainly did not do when I
was young and first went to University). And, I have discovered
that there is a parallel movement to the new age, starting about
20 years later, called Post-modernism. This has mostly interested
academics and University students, but has been very influential,
especially in architecture, design and music. (I like many of
the post-modern buildings, and I document some of them in my photo
At the moment, I have written brief pages as follows:-
1. New Age – an astrological
inevitability, or a spiritual supermarket ….
2. Findhorn – I lived at Findhorn
for quite a long time, so I have tried to review its virtues
3. Post-Modernism – what happened
except for a lot of shiny buildings ?
4. Foucault – he sets things
in a larger perspective ……
If there were only the New Age ...... it would be different,
but now I realise there was a parallel but later and different
movement, then how do I interpret either or both of these ? I
want to begin this challenge !
