Traveling to Agartha – excerpt from THE REAWAKENING OF MYTH

Excerpt from THE REAWAKENING OF MYTH by Boris Nad, coming soon on 10 December 2020 from PRAV Publishing:

The history of peoples is made by the unwritten history of great travels and world travelers – a history that began long before Herodotus or Marco Polo, in the Neolithic or even earlier, in some fantastical age of mankind. Perhaps even at the dusk of the primordial Golden Age, with glaciation or flood, and with the first in a series of catastrophes faced by the human species.

The Crisis of the West – excerpt from THE REAWAKENING OF MYTH

Excerpt from THE REAWAKENING OF MYTH by Boris Nad, forthcoming (December 2020) from PRAV Publishing:

The process through which the West has passed ever faster and faster has already been deemed “creative destruction”: the West has constantly destroyed its own traditions, including its own religions, and subjects everything to doubt, including even the very principles upon which Western (European) civilization was constructed. At the same time, the West is not building up anything: although it is a product of or deviation from European tradition and civilization, it is not Europe, but rather a negation of traditional Europe, an Anti-Europe…The consequence of this development is a distinctly “materialist civilization”: the consumer society composed of atomized individuals in which no superior principle matters and in which everything is allowed to be “doubted” except “doubt” itself. In fact, this is a matter of inner disintegration and deep spiritual crisis, of dissolution which creates nothing, instead only moving aimlessly, a crisis still awaiting its outcome. Such societies are very unstable and fragile on the inside: the fact of the matter is the internal disintegration of (Western) society itself. For some time now, the West has emanated premonitions and forebodings of the end of this very civilization.Continue reading “The Crisis of the West – excerpt from THE REAWAKENING OF MYTH”

“The Return of Myth” – excerpt from THE REAWAKENING OF MYTH

Excerpt from THE REAWAKENING OF MYTH by Boris Nad, forthcoming (December 2020) from PRAV Publishing:

History, let us repeat, has not lasted as long as has man on Earth. But consciousness of this occurs only late within history, perhaps only at its end, when the boundaries of time and space change, on the one hand with the discovery of the distant past of man and lost civilizations, then the past of the planet and the cosmos, and on the other with the discovery of space, of the ocean depths, and the interior of the Earth through archaeological and geological layers in a virtually Vernean way. New perspectives cause dizziness. Pre-history and post-history gain in importance only when history becomes a crumbling edifice. Yet man’s turn from history towards something that he is not yet able to define or see clearly now resembles escape.Continue reading ““The Return of Myth” – excerpt from THE REAWAKENING OF MYTH”

‘Primitive’ Life vs. Modern ‘Development’ – excerpt from POLEMOS: The Dawn of Pagan Traditionalism

Excerpt from POLEMOS: THE DAWN OF PAGAN TRADITIONALISM, by Askr Svarte, coming soon from PRAV Publishing:

Today, belonging to a tradition is considered by modern man to be a declaration of primitiveness. If previously this was thought about the ancient pagan traditions, then in the consciousness of the man of Modernity such is embodied in images of African tribes, Polynesian Indians, and Papuans who, it is believed, will never be capable of achieving the modern level of development and consciousness.Continue reading “‘Primitive’ Life vs. Modern ‘Development’ – excerpt from POLEMOS: The Dawn of Pagan Traditionalism”

Mystical Intuition and the Non-Historical Worldview – excerpt from Foundations of Eurasianism Vol. I

Excerpt from FOUNDATIONS OF EURASIANISM – VOLUME I, forthcoming from PRAV Publishing:

Genuine creativity and authentic novelty are always ‘inexplicable.’ Mutational outbursts and the turns of hereditary pathways always remain beyond the limits of rational consciousness. But does this mean that they are ‘causeless’, that they do not hail from the ‘past’?Continue reading “Mystical Intuition and the Non-Historical Worldview – excerpt from Foundations of Eurasianism Vol. I”

Prometheus and Modern Man – excerpt from POLEMOS: The Dawn of Pagan Traditionalism

Excerpt from POLEMOS: THE DAWN OF PAGAN TRADITIONALISM, by Askr Svarte, coming soon from PRAV Publishing:

The era of Modernity, of the bourgeois geniuses of the Enlightenment and the proletarian masses, unfolds under the enrapturing reign of the titan Prometheus. Whereas hitherto this figure had never drawn so much attention and never became a model or orientation, Modernity becomes the time of Prometheus unbound…Continue reading “Prometheus and Modern Man – excerpt from POLEMOS: The Dawn of Pagan Traditionalism”

Self-Knowledge and National Culture – excerpt from Foundations of Eurasianism Vol. I

Excerpt from FOUNDATIONS OF EURASIANISM – VOLUME I, forthcoming from PRAV Publishing:

He who has not come to know himself cannot be and is incapable of being himself. Only by comprehending one’s nature, one’s essence with perfect clarity and fullness does it become possible to remain unique without self-contradiction, self-deception, or deceiving others. It is only in the establishment of a harmony and integrity of identity on the basis of clear and full understanding of one’s nature that the highest earthly happiness is attainable. At the same time, this constitutes the very essence of morality, for genuine self-knowledge allows one to hear the voice of conscience with extraordinary clarity…This is the highest spiritual beauty a person might attain, for self-deception and internal contradiction, being inevitable in the absence of true self-knowledge, always make a person spiritually ugly. In this very self-knowledge lies the highest wisdom available to man, both the practical and worldly and the theoretical, for all other knowledge is illusory and vain. Only in having achieved an identity founded in self-knowledge can a person (or people) be certain that they are truly fulfilling their purpose on earth, truly becoming that which they were created to be. This is an end in itself, but also a means…Continue reading “Self-Knowledge and National Culture – excerpt from Foundations of Eurasianism Vol. I”
