Today's episode brings us to the exciting conclusion of our six-part series on esoteric philosophy, the psychology of meditation, and the use of mandalas in esoteric practices. In the first two episodes of this chapter, we investigated the psychology behind meditation, mandalas, and the mystical experience. In the two episodes that followed, we analyzed Mahayana Buddhism as a case study of these topics. Then, in the fifth and previous article of this series, we turned our attention to another case study: that of Pythagorean Tetractys.
Now, in this episode, we synthesize everything we’ve covered so far in order to lay out a grand concept of human civilization as a collective mandala of the human soul.
I hope you enjoy. Stay tuned for the next chapter in my ongoing book project titled "Philosophy: Its Origins, Purpose, and Destiny" - it's on Plato's vision of the Philosophic Empire.
