Lineages

Lineage historian Will Durant noticed that “civilizations don’t die, they migrate.” This migration based on a symbolic mind transmission from one person to another communicates the inspiration of one person’s wisdom and insight to others. And counter to this are the lineages of confusion, fixed mind, and superstition. We can see all of history as the interplay between these two powerful influences: belief and superstition on one side; openness and doubt on the other.

Our lineages here celebrate and promote the non-thought, creative, and beyond-belief influences in our various cultures, religions, political and philosophical movements.

“Eternal truths survive the shock of empires, outlive the struggles of rival creeds, and witness the decay of successive religions.” ― Henry Thomas Buckle (1821-1862)

"a celestial city, a special Country of the Mind, wherein a 1000 saints, statesmen, inventors, scientists, poets, artists, musicians, lovers, and philosophers still live and speak, teach and carve and sing." — Will Durant (1885–1981)
