Here are a couple of lines from the liner notes to one of his published works:
“Every genius, who has ever enriched the human culture with epoch-making discoveries and new ways of approach, philosophers and founders of new religions, every eminent individual who significantly helped the slow advance of our earthly civilization, abandoned the usual way of thinking and, without paying attention to small details, used creative analogies to shed light on the connections between things.”
With these words, the author “encrypted” his own philosophy as well.
This modern Hermeticist vision came to life more than 50 years ago. Until now, only a few people have known about it, and even fewer have had the chance to read the manuscript. But not only the existence of this manuscript has been a secret, the circumstances of its genesis were – and still are – also surrounded by mysteries. Who could tell what kind of “suggestion” inspired Charon to write this unique and revolutionary work, who gave him the knowledge about the past and future of earthly and heavenly existence.
This book is really “the novel of the next century”, and perhaps it is not our logical mind that we should use to understand everything written in it, there may be other ways of comprehension. Maybe we should “see” the words with our eyes closed, in a slow and mysterious floating on the boundary between sleep and wakefulness, letting words, thoughts and visions fill our mind and resonate in us. Who knows, this may be the way to approach Charon…
Here are a few thoughts from the book itself. Let’s see, what thought-provoking information we can find if we read between the lines.
„There are many people – maybe more than we would think – who are not satisfied by the hectic hustle of our over-organized way of life, whose physical exhaustion cannot keep their anxious minds from searching, trying to make sense of seemingly pointless phenomena. These people feel an inner tension, they are not content with what life has to offer them, they keep searching for a way out of the labyrinth that seems to lead nowhere and only shows the sad deterioration and demise of living matter. Those who look for the distances and regions of pure spirituality, stumble alone, blindly. They cannot find the approach that is the intuitive synthesis of modern, scientific thinking and ancient holy myth.
The ways of science and religion were equally insufficient during the great spiritual revolution of the Age of the Uranus, because the point of view from which they were watching the seemingly endless series of phenomena of the universe and man, the Bios and the Cosmos, is limited, therefore every old-fashioned attempt to understand these phenomena is imperfect. In the New Age we have to create a new way of thinking, for this is our only chance to get to know the Cosmos, which has not three, not four, but many dimensions, and cannot be perceived in its entirety.
If we try to describe the self-awareness activity of the New Man, the nature of description must differ from what we used in the past. Because this activity takes place in several dimensions and different co-ordinate systems, these contexts of long-term-perspective can only be approached if the method of examination and the logical system can be varied according to them and they integrate flexibly among the form-of-manifestation tendencies existing in several dimensions.
THE LOGIC SYSTEM OF THE DIMENSION ERA
The first is the hiero-synchronion; the approach of the psyche, the supreme self. According to this, the thought does not progress step by step, but instead, it cuts across the spirals of normal logic. The hiero-synchronion’s complex of thoughts leads to a revelatory unfolding of things. The logic activity associated with the mental activity of the hiero-synchronion uses special metaphyisical sensations to indicate the right way.
The psycho-synchronion is an intuitive way of evaluation which provides transcendental evidence of whether our insight is correct or not. The verification of the pertinence of an intuition is always that it sheds better light on the process of the facts and life phenomena that we learned through normal logic, delves deeper into the essence of things, reveals the truth from higher viewpoints. All great discoveries of natural science, including the most bizarre parts of Einstein’s theory, have been born from such viewpoints. Thus we can find consistent explanations for many problems that we have so far been unable to explain.
The ideo-synchronion does not move step by step, does not take a short cut through spiral sectors, does not rely on intuition, but emerges vertically from the partial realization, and forms its judgement by reviewing the whole. Rising above the details also means that we abandon the lower co-ordinates. The viewpoint from which the ideo-synchronion contemplates the phenomena changes fundamentally: the same phenomenon reveals more of its real essence if it is viewed from a greater distance and wider aspect. The special, complex perspective of the ideo-synchronion provides the opportunity of universal assessment. Its device is the creative analogy. The correctness of the analogy is always justified by a more perfect result. (Wrong analogies lead into a dead-end!)
THE THREE DIMENSION SYSTEMS
Now we are going to briefly sketch up the dimension systems of the hermetic teachings, to make the concept of sattvic consciousness easier to understand. The physical dimension systems multiply according to the measures of space and time, however, their contents always remain spatial and temporal. The words we have at our disposal can be deceptive. Our language is tuned to the phenomena of the perceptible world, and if we try to talk about things that happen in higher dimension systems, the familiar terms can be misleading because their ideal contents always refer to restricted spatial and temporal concepts. Everyone has to overcome this difficulty individually, and has to transpose the extant terminology to describe the phenomena of higher systems, giving a new content to old terms, expanding the narrow definitions by making their boundaries more flexible. The other choice is to create new terms from scratch, according to the needs of the expanded system.
In the psychic dimension systems, the emotional registers of the psyche begin to sound. Their effect spreads into the depth, breaking through the superficial view of the surface which belongs to the physical sytem. The activity of this system fluctuates between the impulses of attraction and repulsion and the moulding of aesthetic viewpoints.
The mental dimension systems move in the area of abstract thinking, with boundless possibilities. Their principal characteristic is the ignorance to details by rising above them, the impersonal and synthetic view. Instead of demarcating definitions, they use accommodating formulae and analogies, and ponder things according to symbolic tendencies. They build up their thought constructions by the complex and elastic application of abstact lines of force.
GRADES OF DEPTH IN EVALUATION
One of the untrodden paths of modern hermetics is the study of intensity. In the not very distant future, this yet unknown discipline will form the basis of every human assessment. This is because it will turn out that the coordinates of space and time are insufficient to define the more delicate contents of the Bios. Countless living creatures exist beside each other in the same spatial system but, merely considering time, divergences between individuals often span hundreds of years, even thousands if we measure according to other qualities. However, if we apply the quality closure to examine life phenomena, the expansion of the Bios shows a depth of several million years in the form of differences. We see five humans and five animals next to each other. From a superficial view, they are not all that different. They perform similar life functions. They all have the most familiar characteristics of a living creature. They all breathe, feed, grow and multiply, they are born and they die. They use their organs according to their levels of existence. Seen from within, however, these ten living beings are islands, small universes of their own, with huge differences in their intensity of structure and function.
They are all present in the same space and in the same time, according to the chronology of that space. However, one of them is a sanguine, optimistic character, with high blood pressure; the other is the melancholic, pessimistic type with low blood pressure, for whom existence is anything but pure joy. The third is a phlegmatic charcter, a critical spirit with low sensitivity and a great sense of humour.
The fourth one is an exceptional genius, who thinks more quickly than the others, is able to draw conclusions from millennial problems in minutes, whose plans and ideas point into the distant future. Striking ideas arise from his/her mind at the sight of simple physical phenomena. He/she can extract revolutionary laws from processes that the other three persons do not even notice. When he/she is happy, his/her feelings are more intense, when s/he experiences pain or grief, there is a cosmic philsophy in these feelings. The genius can experience months in the course of days, centuries in months, aeons in years. In other words: the same period of time gives a different amount of content according to the intensity of functions. It’s not true, that the definition of existence is determined by the sheer spatial presence equally in these five cases. In fact, the difference between these individuals is in the intensity of the functions. One person lives only one quarter as intensely as the other, so he/she experiences only one quarter as much during the same period of time as the other person. While yet another person inherited a thousandfold intensity of life from his/her ancestors. And there are some characters (humans or animals) that never reach the threshold of intensity that is the standard for the Homo sapiens.
What does life intensity depend on? Is this just a question of energy? This is not only the outcome of the energy concentration being locally effective. If anywhere, here is where it really depends on intellectual qualities. Our physical constitution only slightly influences the intensity of our activity. From an intellectual viewpoint, material is organized and directed by high-frequency intellectual energies. Substance or a force bound onto a physical level is just an inert quantitative factor in itself. In man’s biological constitution seeds of intellectual abilities lie dormant. These abilities need to be lifted out of their larval state via repeated contractions, after which their essence can be released through appropriate organic gates. It will be the future special task of the study of intensity to attempt to express the depth of feelings, strength and energy charge in grades. Of course, these cannot be named according to a simple scalar nomenclature, since intensities are multidirectional, poly-dimensional formations. In any case, the research will begin with the with the measurement of the sensation qualities, and later, the biological system of the research will take shape, where it will be possible to attempt to increase and decrease intensities, under control…”
