Michal Eben, FRC
Grand Master of the Czech and Slovakian Languages Grand Lodge
In this podcast, which is a reading of his presentation at the AMORC World Convention in San Jose, Grand Master Michal Eben explains how humanity evolves, and how we perceive our own development, invoking scientific and mystical analogies. The importance of cycles in this development for equilibrium and moderation highlight this podcast.
The Rosicrucian Order’s scientific research into mystical and transpersonal experiences began with H. Spencer Lewis in the early 1900s. It continued with the establishment of the International Research Council (IRC) in 1934 with a very active team of experts in various related fields who researched and taught at Rose Croix University International (RCUI) at Rosicrucian Park.
In the 1970s and 1980s, a series of reports from the IRC was published in the Rosicrucian Digest under the title “Mindquest.” This podcast of an article from that series was written by George Buletza, PhD, FRC, Director of the IRC at that time.
AMORC’s IRC is still very active in scientific investigations around the world today. Some of the researchers’ findings are published as books, others as papers in the Rose+Croix Journal (www.rosecroixjournal.org), and others as presentations – in person and online.
This podcast features an article from the December 2010 Mithraic Mysteries issue of the Rosicrucian Digest.In this selection, Jane B. Sellers discusses the precession of the equinoxes, vital to the understanding of the Mithraic Mysteries. Hipparchus may have rediscovered this astronomical phenomenon, however, it is clear that the Egyptians were aware of it centuries before.
