Aleksandr Sokurov – The Dialogues with Solzhenitsyn [1999]

si spunea:

We’re flooded with so much information that there’s no room for the soul to breathe.”

Aha. Thank you for letting me know, Solzhe’…

Foarte teribil DVD-ul asta, foarte teribil. Tipul e a naibii de anti-West – asa cum ii sade bine unui / oricarui “intelectual” rus si ortodox. La el nici macar pasarile nu canta in U.S. America de Nord este o tara a tacerii.

Asa cum se stie, Solzhenitsyn asta este celebru pentru afirmatiile facute. Una dintre aceste afirmatii, referitoare nu doar la teroarea rosie, ci si la perioada contemporana in general, este urmatoarea:

Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.

Cine sunt acei Men?! Eu, tu? Vecina (pardon, ea nu-i Men, therefore not human)? Aborigenii? Peile rosii? Hai sa aratam cu degetul.

In fine, prostii. De vreti, uitati-va la film. De nu, uitati-va in jurul vostru.

Capitolul 9

Anthony J. Vanchu, Technology as Esoteric Cosmology in Early Soviet Literature, pp. 203-222. Un articol interesant, aparut in 1997 in volumul The occult in Russian and Soviet culture. Ed. by Bernice Glatzer Rosenthal.

Fall in love with your craft…, these strips of metal… breathe, work, move… they radiate for man, yet they are invisible to doctors… Study every metal, immerse yourself in it, us it and let it flow into the world with your secret instructions and let it do your bidding, do your bidding, do your bidding… The strongest locks, our cunning creations, will unlock themselves merely at our touch. Doors will listen and then tell us what has been said, the mirrors remember, the walls will hide our secret moves, floors will open up, ceilings will fall in, roofs will rise up like lids.

Un titlu gasit in respectivul articol si care mi-a retinut atentia este Ayleen Teskey, Platonov and Fedorov. The influence of Christian philosophy on a Soviet Writer. England: Avebury Publ. 1982. O carte foarte interesanta se pare, pe care insa nu o am. Daca cineva o are, ar fi super! Ceea ce pot sa ofer momentan sunt cateva recenzii la acest volum:

Irene Masing-Delic, in Russian Review, Vol. 42, No. 4 (Oct., 1983), pp. 449-450.

Ludmila Koehler, in The Slavic and East European Journal, Vol. 27, No. 2 (Summer, 1983), pp. 264-266.

Richard Gustafson, in Slavic Review, Vol. 43, No. 4 (Winter, 1984), pp. 734-735.

GHF: 10 ani

Center for History of Hermetic Philosophy and Related Currents – unicul centru, pana la ora actuala, dedicat acestui subiect atat de complex.

Unul dintre cele mai importante instrumente de lucru editate de centrul mai sus mentionat – pe scurt GHF – este Dictionary of Gnosis & Western Esotericism, o lucrare masiva in doua volume (cu peste 1200 pp. in total) ce prezinta

a great range of historical currents and personalities that have flourished in Western culture and society over a period of roughly two millennia, from Late Antiquity to the present. By doing so, it intends not only to provide a comprehensive reference work, but also to question certain ingrained assumptions about the history of Western religion and culture, and promote new agendas and analytical frameworks for research in these domains.

Asadar un intrument obligatoriu pentru toti cei interesati in a intelege mai in adanc societatea contemporana si nu numai.

Unii m-au “acuzat” de a fi exagerat in a vedea peste tot numai religie / teologie si de a analiza  arta (contemporana sau nu), economia sau politica europeana pornind de la acest criteriu. Recunosc: vad peste tot structuri religioase: in moda, in arta, in economie, in finante, in politica etc. Pentru mine, a lasa aceaste structuri afara inseamna a lasa enorm de mult afara, inseamna a ignora motorul cel mai important al societatii, baza fundamentala a realului in care ne miscam.
