The Darkening Spirit

by Duff Egan



"A key element of a post-rational enchantment is a fluid and metaphorical awareness of soul in the world. The animating factor is not supernatural but deeply natural. The new understanding is that spirit is inherent in nature, and does not have to be put there by forces from above. Spirit does not intervene in the natural order in an artificial way because it is 'always already' there. Thus, the new understanding of an animated universe is neither dualistic nor supernatural, because we experience a depth dimension in nature which was previously hidden from sight. The first stage of enchantment saw it but interpreted it in literal ways, while the second stage of reason denied its existence and did not appreciate the revelatory power of myth.

We are on a journey into a new way of experiencing the world, and while this stage owes a great deal to ancient cosmology, it refuses to identify with the fist stage as it moves toward a vision we can as yet barely comprehend. "
