Piercing Truths: Pythagoras, Western Civilization, and Hope–Steven Armstrong, FRC

“Piercing Truths: Pythagoras, Western Civilization, and Hope”–Steven Armstrong, FRC, from the “Mystical Italy” issue of the Rosicrucian Digest.

Civilizations do not just happen; they are created by those whose place it is to grow them, and when a civilization comes to an impasse, to pierce through to a new path.

In this podcast, RCUI Instructor Steven Armstrong discusses the work of lifelong mystic and author Peter Kingsley, as it relates to Pythagoras, the origins of Western Civilization, and the impasse of our times.

The Neo-Pythagoreans at the Porta Maggiore in Rome — Lisa Spencer, S.R.C., M.A.O.M.

In the early twentieth century Roman crews were excavating for a new railway station when they came across a small vaulted basilica, about fifty feet underground. Notwithstanding its diminutive size (thirty by thirty-six feet), the find was extraordinary. Built sometime between the first century BCE and the first century CE, its walls are adorned with stucco bas-reliefs depicting mythological and mystery school themes, including those connected with the Neopythagoreans. It appears to have been a meeting place and perhaps an initiatory chamber for these Mysteries. This podcast introduces listeners to the significance of this archaeological record of the Pythagorean Tradition. The reader is Juanita Ortiz.

Pythagoras and Music — Melanie Richards, M.Mus., S.R.C.

The musician draws the bow across the violin string and immediately the inert atmosphere becomes vibrant and transparent, “…as if sound from nonspatial realms shines through a window into the world of space.” What is being demonstrated is a phenomenon known as the overtone series, in which any tone, played or sung, activates a column of mathematically-related notes which vibrate sympathetically with the sounded pitch and create resonance. Octaves throughout the universe respond, in a modern, scientific “music of the spheres,” echoing the hypothesis that dates back to ancient times and the School of Pythagoras.

Mystery Schools and the Rosicrucian Tradition — Grand Master Julie Scott

The ancient Mystery Schools served as spiritual centers in the ancient world, educating students in natural laws and principles so they could better live in harmony with them; encouraging introspection in order to know one’s self; and engendering within a feeling of connection with the Great Mystery of the Universe. In this podcast, Grand Master Julie Scott discusses the ways in which the Rosicrucian tradition perpetuates the wisdom of the ancient Mystery Schools.
