An Oracle for the 21st Century
TFJD Oracle name <==> "thinking, feeling, joining, and doing"
The Worldview Theme Songbook--Exploring the Feelings Behind Worldviews ,an
oracle is described as "a person or procedure thought to provide wise
counsel or good symbolic guidance with respect to questions as to how to proceed
at life’s important crossroads.
It is a form of divination: the art or practice of revealing hidden
knowledge, especially the foretelling / predicting future events." After
recalling its ancient history, that book's account connects it to 20th century
Jungian psychology / synchronicity, MIT physics professor Kerson Huang, and
quantum mechanics / quantum random walks.
With that characterization one might
skeptically (and rightly?) connect this modern attempt at reviving interest in
and using oracles with pseudoscience / nonsense. But many with a New Age /
that appreciates Non-Rational Knowing and
Positive Expectations are
intrigued by oracles. They
as a process informed by
a connectedness that some call a "cosmic mind" rather
than random process.
quizzing an oracle in terms of putting a question out there to that cosmic mind.
|This modern oracle is introduced near the end of The Worldview Theme Songbook, where complete instructions are provided for its use. If this is to be characterized as a "game" for one or more players, it would not be one associated with having fun, but rather with confronting uncertainty, perhaps even crisis. This is especially true where one troubled person seeks to pose a question for an oracle. As Huang—who with his wife has provided a modern translation and interpretation of the I Ching— described it, he feels that “to consult it” is “to solemnize the moment.” And feels the function of an oracle “is to satisfy certain needs of the person seeking counsel."|
