Example text

It should be mentioned that Sir Laurens van der Post has written an essay, titled The Other Journey, that explains ‘the other journey’ component of the Teiresian prophecy in greater detail than I have here. It can be found in Sir Laurens’ 1993 book, The Voice of the Thunder. I should point out that Sir Laurens titled that book ‘The Voice of the Thunder’ in anticipation of the arrival of the deafening truth about the human condition. For Sir Laurens van der Post to have been able to make such penetrating insights into mythology and the human situation he must clearly have been one of those rare individuals who was sufficiently sound to confront and think freely about the human condition, someone living outside Plato’s ‘cave’ of denial in the truthful world of the illuminating ‘sun’, one of those people traditionally termed a prophet.

Significantly, while older adults suffer the most from the deaf effect they are also the most aware of, and on their guard against, any information that brings the human condition into focus. Both the deaf effect and sensitivity to any human-conditionconfronting information increases with alienation, the more innocent having less to fear from information that brings the human condition into focus. This combination that accompanies alienation, of loss of ‘hearing’ but an acute ‘radar’ for any information relating to the human condition, is an extremely dangerous mix when understanding of the human condition arrives.

This important point will be examined shortly. 59 Print Ed One of the obstacles this material faces is the arrogance of the human mind or, more precisely, the extent of its delusion that it is not alienated. People naturally feel it is an insult to their intelligence to be told their mind is incapable of comprehending something. People simply do not believe their mind could be as deaf as a post to well reasoned and explained analysis of a subject, but that is exactly what the human mind has been to the subject of the human condition.
