As we can see, scientific mind all over the world became linked to one or another mystical path of development of consciousness and now they are reflecting in their scientific work the results of their incursions into the ancient wisdom. "Noetic" sciences is a direct reflection of a rosicrucian influence on the scientific research. The modern mind is opening up to the Cosmos and start to see the correspondences like "as above, so below"...
Also "The Lost Symbol" give us a metaphor for the search of the Ancient Wisdom. Look at the symbols the author used:
- The trunked Pyramid
- The Pyramid's capstone
- The staircase to the underground buried "Secret"
- The "Lost Word"
The Trunked Pyramid - refers to the human spiritual development that need to be completed.
The Pyramid capstone - refers to the Divine Key that need to used to unlock the Ancient Wisdom and complete the human development. The Divine Key is the contact with our Higher Self, Genius or Guardian Angel.
The Underground staircase - refers to the Path that accesses the deep recess of our mind (our subconscious mind) to retrieve the treasure of Ancient Wisdom that is waiting for us (the Kabbalah?) under the guidance of our Higher Self.
The hidden treasure of Ancient Wisdom - refers to the liberating knowledge given by the Tradional Schools of Mystery to guide us to the final step of our development.
The "Lost Word" - Which have many meanings in the Hermetic tradition. The Atlantean lost word of power for Ancient and Mystic Ordo Rosae Crucis or the FreeMason Lost Word or key to the ancient wisdom.
Anyway, the book is fascinating and I recomment to all our frateres and sorores. Very stimulating.
