William Butler Yeats

There are adepts outside of what exactly is called alchemy whom have achieved awesome things within these areas and there are alchemists before Socrates and Aristotle, or Da Vinci and Newton; whom all true specialists know were alchemists. For any author or journalist whom would produce a TELEVISION documentary found on the topic and not even question a hermeticist (far less an alchemist) it is obvious their intent is to not educate. So when you view Time/Life videos doing which kind of show I hope you know you will be being fed lies. In February, 1925 Yeats wrote this inside Capri."The End of the CycleA Vision AIn the initial edition of A Vision the section 'Dove or Swan' contains a reasonably long passage found on the relationship of the gyres to the modern period as well as the close future (AV A 210-215), which had been omitted inside the next edition. It is provided here for reference, with the page breaks indicated. The initial conviction provided here (inside italics) is the last about AV B 300, as well as the text continues following that.Having bruised their hands on which restrict guys, first because the seventeenth century, view our society as an object of contemplation, not as anything to be remade, and some few, meeting the restrict inside their unique study, even doubt if there is any common encounter, which is to say doubt the possibility of science.It is said which at Phase 8 you can find civil fight, at Phase 22 constantly fight, and as this fight is definitely a beat when you have conquered, we have repeated the wars of Alexander.I discover already the first phase--Phase 23--of the last quarter inside certain neighbors of reinforce, and inside writers, poets and sculptors admired by those neighbors, whom have a kind of powerful love and detest hitherto obscure inside the arts. This is with them a thing of mind to live inside their obtain accurate instant of time, in addition they protect their mind like theologians. These are typically all assimilated inside some technical analysis to the whole exception of the personalized dream. This is like the forms inside the stone or inside their reverie began to move with an energy which is not which of the human attention. Often these forms are mechanical, are as it were the mathematical forms which maintain the physical primary--I think of the job of Mr Wyndham Lewis, his powerful "cacophony of sardine tins," and of those marble eggs, or items of burnished steel too drawn up or tapered away to be called eggs, of M. Brancussi [sic], whom has gone further than Mr Wyndham Lewis from recognisable topic matter and so from personality; of sculptors whom would certainly be denied as impure with a true sectary of the second, the Scandinavian Milles, Mestrovi? perhaps, masters of a geometrical pattern or beat which seems to impose itself wholly from beyond the mind, the performer "standing outside himself." I compare them how to sculpture or painting where now the performer now the model imposeshis personality. I think incredibly of the art of the 21st Phase which had been at times so anarchic, Rodin creating his powerful art from the fragments of those Gates of Hell which he previously found himself unable to hold together--images from a personalized dream, "the heck of Baudelaire not of Dante," he previously mentioned to Symons. I find only at that 23rd Phase which is it is mentioned the initial where there is hatred of the abstract, where the intellect turns on itself, Mr Ezra Pound, Mr Eliot, Mr Joyce, Signor Pirandello, whom either eliminate from metaphor the poet's phantasy and substitute a strangeness discovered by historical or modern analysis or whom break up the logical processes of thought by flooding them with associated inspirations or words which appear to move into the mind by chance; or whom set side by side as inside "Henry IV," "The Waste Land," "Ulysses," the physical primary--a lunatic amidst his keepers, a man angling behind a fuel functions, the vulgarity of a individual Dublin day prolonged by 700 pages--and the religious primary, delirium, the Fisher King, Ulysses' wandering. It is like myth and fact, united until the tiredness of the Renaissance, have fallen thus far apart which man knows first the rigidity of fact, and calls up, by which extremely recognition, myth--the Mask--which now but gropes its means from the mind's dark but might soon follow and terrify. In practical life one wants the same technical inspiration, the doing of the or which not because one would, or should, but because one could, major licence, and with those "from phase" anarchic violence without sanction on the whole principles. If there is a violent change, and it is the last stage where political change can be done, the dish might be made from what exactly is found inside the pantry as well as the cook might not open her book. There can be greater ability which hitherto for guys might be set free from aged restraint, but the aged intellectual hierarchy gone they might thwart and jostle each other. One tries to discover the type of the 24th Phase which will offer peace--perhaps by some generally accepted political or religious action, perhaps by some more profound generalisation--calling up before the attention those whom speak its thoughts inside the language your earlier time. Peguy inside his Joan of Arc trilogy exhibits the national and religious custom of the French poor, while he, a man perhaps of the 24th stage, would have it, and Claudel inside his "L'Otage" the religious and secular hierarchies perceived as history. I foresee a time whenever the majority of guys might so accept an historical custom which they might quarrel, not as to who is able to impose his personality on people but as to who is able to right embody the common aim, whenever all personality might appear an impurity--"sentimentality," "sullenness," "egotism"--something which revolts not morals alone but advantageous taste.There might be no longer awesome intellect for a constant activity might be needed of all; and where liberties are ingested up inside duties, and solitude is difficult, creation except amidst avowedly archaistic and unpopular groups might grow impossible. Phase 25 can arise, as the code wears away from repetition, to give new motives for obedience, or from some scientific breakthrough which seems to contrast, a only historical acquiescence, with an enthusiastic popularity of the general might conceived as a present energy--"Sibyll [sic] what can you?" "I would die." Next with the last gyre should come a plan to be ruled or quite, seeing which desire is all but dead, an love of force religious or physical, and society as mechanical force be complete at last. \nConstrained, arraigned, baffled, twisted and unbentBy those wire-jointed jaws and limbs of timber \nThemselves obedient,Knowing not bad or advantageous.A decadence might descend, by constant moral improvement, on a community which can feel like some girl of NY or Paris whom has renounced her rouge pot to reduce her figure and grow coars of skin and dull of brain, eating her calves and infants someplace found on the edge of the wilderness. The decadence of the Greco-Roman world with its violent soldiers as well as wood dark younger players was as awesome, but which recommended the bubbles of lifestyle turned into marbles, while what awaits us, being democratic and primary, can recommend bubbles inside a frozen pond--mathematical Babylonian starlight.When the new era comes providing its flow of irrational force it might, as did Christianity, find its approach already impressed on the minority whom have, faithful stage, turned away at the last gyre within the Physical Primary. And it should up into lifestyle, not Dürer's, nor Blake's, nor Milton's human form divine--nor yet Nietzsche's superman, nor Patmore's catholic, promising "a play that's dead"--the brood of the Sistine Chapel--but organic groups, covens of physical or intellectual kin melted from the frozen mass. I imagine new races, as it were, seeking domination, a world resembling but also for its immensity which of the Greek tribes--each with its own Daimon or ancestral hero--the brood of Leda, War and Love; history developed symbolic, the biography changed into myth. Above all I imagine everywhere the opposites, no mere alternation between nothing the other like the Christian brute and ascetic, but true opposites, each living the other's death, dying the other's lifestyle.It is mentioned which the primary impulse "creates the event" but which the antithetical "follows it" and by this I recognize which the Next Fountain might arise following a long preparation and as it were from the truly heart of human knowledge, and appear whenever it comes no interruption but a climax. It can be done which the increasing separation within the community all together of the cultivated classes, their growing certainty, knowning that falling inside two of the human attention whichI have watched inside certain functions of art is preparation. During the period mentioned to commence inside 1927, with the 11th gyre, should arise a kind of approach, which will become religious and ethical inside the 12th gyre and be in most things opposite of which wide plaster Herculean image, final primary thought. It is concrete inside appearance, establish itself by immediate encounter, seek no general agreement, make little of God or any exterior unity, and it might call which good which a man can contemplate himself as doing constantly and no different man doing at all. This might make a cardinal truth of man's immortality which its virtue may well not shortage sanction, and of the soul's re-embodiment which it can restore to virtue which long preparation no can give and hold death an interruption. The supreme encounter, Plotinus' euphoria, euphoria of the Saint, might recede, for men--finding it difficult--substituted dogma and idol, abstractions of all kinds, things beyondexperience; and guys can be long satisfied with those more insignificant supernatural benedictions as whenever Athena took Achilles by his yellow hair. Men might no longer separate the concept of God from which of human genius, human productivity in most its forms.Unlike Christianity which had due to its initial Roman teachers cobblers and weavers, this thought should find appearance amidst those which are many slight, many wealthy in memory; which Gainsborough face floats up; amidst the learned--every type of learning--among the rich--every type of riches--and the best of those which express it is provided energy, less as a result of which they guarantee than of which they appear and are. This much is thought as it is the reverse of everything you know, but those kindreds once formed should obey irrational force and so create hitherto obscure encounter, or which which is incredible.Though it cannot interrupt the intellectual stream--being delivered as a result and mobile inside it--itcan grow a fanaticism and a terror, at initial outsetting oppress the ignorant--even the innocent--as Christianity oppressed the wise, seeing which your day is far off whenever the two halves of man can define each its own unity inside the different as inside a mirror, Sun inside Moon, Moon inside Sun, and so escape from the Wheel." (1)When he says 'the Christian brute and ascetic' is he creating reference to the family of stoic philosophers or Bruttii as an example the Admiral whom accompanied Julius Caesar whenever they met the Keltic fleet and invaded what exactly is called Britain now after them? This same family involves another Brutus we discovered regarding from another Hermetic called Shakespeare. That family was still standing up for Keltic egalitarianism whenever it destroyed Julius Caesar or whenever Rome was based. Did he know the history of the Milesian Stuarts from before the different influxes to the Emerald Isles as they returned countless millennia after leaving due to glacial effects? There is so very much code inside this prose and poetry. The sun and satellite definitely make a wheel and this ancient knowledge possibly pre-exists the coming of white guys by whatever adept mutation or happenstance which allowed it. I beg the reader to spend a considerable amount of time with this one sentence--"This much is thought as it is the reverse of everything you know, but those kindreds once formed should obey irrational force and so create hitherto obscure encounter, or which which is incredible."\navows
