People Don’t Read Much Anymore… So I’m Going To Tell Them How It Is

Encyclopedia Hermetica: A Big History

with Dan Attrell

In this new podcast-style series presented by The Modern Hermeticist, historian Dan Attrell cruises through the centuries and millennia, starting around the year 5000 BC and working his way down to our times, in order to provide listeners with a ‘big picture’ of history.  The ‘exoteric’ portions of the Encyclopedia Hermetica cover major events and trends in politics, art, philosophy, religion, science, and more, in order to provide listeners with a more ‘traditional’ historical framework.

This romp through the ages, however, serves a dual-function as a vehicle for imparting teachings vis-a-vis the ‘esoteric’ dimensions of history which one cannot learn in school.  The discussions are punctuated by an honest and ‘alternative’, no-holds barred commentary that delves off into subjects such as the occult, mysticism, and mind control, and how these topics stand in connection with the way the past has unfurled, and the way we continue to interpret those events to this day.  This is done to provide listeners not only with a basic chronology of events, but with a veritable ‘cosmology’ in the spirit of a liberal education.

Future episodes will discuss the topics as diverse as magic[k] and mystery traditions, prophets and their mystical experiences, science and alchemy, astrology and astronomy, entheogenic plants and psychedelic drugs, freedom and slavery, truth and illusion, and much more in relation to the broader framework of world history.
