2012, Zecharia Sitchin and Pan-Babylonianism

On Nov 13th 2009 Roland Emmerich’s ultra-bombastic movie “2012″ was released. It injects into the mainstream public mind a major theme percolating throughout the minority ‘New Age movement’ these last 20 years or so, namely, the supposed significance of the year 2012 based on interpretations of the Mayan calendar – the notion that some major event is going to happen globally in 2012. This has been prognosticated  optimistically, as the entry into some great age of bliss and transcendent consciousness for...

Understanding Our Time (2)

©Terry Boardman This article first appeared in New View magazine Issue 52, 3rd Quarter Summer 2009 The first of these two articles titled “Understanding Our Time” (New View Spring 2009) looked at three esoteric concepts that help us to shed light on what is going on at this stage in history. These three were: 1) the fulcrum point of Christ’s Incarnation in the macro-cosmic inhalation and exhalation of human and indeed all natural life on this planet and the mirroring effect on either side of that fulcrum point; 2) the 2160...

Understanding Our Time (1)

by Terry Boardman This essay first appeared as an article in New View magazine  Issue 51 April,-June 2009  Bewilderment is widespread today. It is commonly recognised that modern society is experiencing a major crisis that is economic, ecological, political and cultural. We seem to be facing one of those major nodes of significant shift in history that have occurred in former times such as at the end of the Roman Empire c.300, the end of the Middle Ages c.1500, the emergence of the national and ‘natural scientific’ state c.1650,...

Where is the UK Bound? (Part 2) The Re-creation of Europe

by Terry Boardman This article originally appeared in New View magazine 1st Quarter Winter 2007/2008 In order to prepare for a discussion of where Britain might be ‘bound’ (heading for) in the 21st century in the positive sense, the first part of this article looked at where Britain is currently ‘bound’ (restricted) in the negative sense of the word and concluded that it is bound by concepts of politics (party tribalism) and economics (the ‘free’ market) rooted in the late 18th century – a time when...

Where is the UK Bound? (1)

by Terry Boardman This article was first published in New View magazine 4th Quarter Autumn 2007     The English language allows the question ‘where is the UK bound?’ to be understood in several ways, giving rise to at least four questions:         what is restraining the UK ? What is binding its hands?        what unites the UK , binding it together, in a positive sense?        where is the UK heading for? Where is it bound?        in what way can the UK bound, or leap forward into the...

What was the  20th century ?

  A lecture given on 17th March 2000 in Stourbridge, England  © Terry Boardman All kinds of epithets have already been given to the 20th century by countless writers and commentators – the most radical, the most heroic, the most wicked, the most awesome, the most exciting, the most trivialising, the most destructive, the most inventive, the most un-spiritual, the most truly spiritual and so on and so on. Innumerable colourful, and moving examples have been cited in support of these claims. They have provided the stuff of...

Uranus, Neptune and Pluto – The Three Magi at Humanity’s Crossing of the Threshold

© Terry Boardman Background The three years 1998, 1999, 2000 are all intimately related to the number 666, which the Apocalypse of St John in the New Testament describes as the number of the Beast, or Antichrist – a Being who will pretend to be the Christ, but who will in fact seek to enslave humanity.                     1997 ÷ 3 = 665.67                     1998 ÷ 3 = 666                     1999 ÷ 3 = 666.33                     2000 ÷ 3 =...

The Millennium In The Light of Anthroposophy

The Millennium In The Light of Anthroposophy

© Terry Boardman   Nov. 1999 How can one understand the Millennium in the light of Anthroposophy? First, by recognising that the Millennium has to do with Christ. There are of course those who say that the dating is all wrong, and that Jesus, if he lived at all, must have been born in 4 BC or earlier. This is not the place to go into the complexities of what Rudolf Steiner had to say about the two Jesus children and the two Jesus families, but it should be pointed out that most conventional discussions of the dating of the birth of Christ...

Aspects of the Occult Significance of the Year 1998

© Terry Boardman  April 1998 * This essay is an abridged version of a lecture given by the author in Stourbridge, England 27.2.1998 to members of the Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain   Rudolf Steiner  saw the end of the 20th century as a culmination for anthroposophy and as a crucial testing time for mankind. The year 1998, he said,  is especially important because it is the third repetition in the Christian era of the number 666, the Number of the Beast in the Apocalypse. 3 beasts are mentioned in Apocalypse: a great red...

ON THE DEATH OF  DIANA, “QUEEN OF HEARTS”

©Terry Boardman 14 September 1997 This essay first appeared in the German magazine Info3 in October 1997 Quite some time will have to go by before the British people will be able to gain some real clarity about the nature of the truly bizarre, unsettling and moving experience they went through in the week of 31st August to 6th September 1997 following the death of Diana in a car crash in a Paris underpass. Many agree that in some undefined way, it was indeed some kind of defining moment for the nation. Perhaps one has to go back to the death...
