This concept is commonly referred to as the "end of the world" or "end time."
Notion of a "religious war" as opposed to a "secular war" is the result
of the Western concept of the Separation of Church and State.
“Religion” as a Modern Invention
Interview with Brent Nongbri at The Religious Studies Project
While contemplating the task of creating this page, drop down menus and content I quickly came to the conclusion that it was going to be a microcosm of our expanding universe. The mere complexity of the exploration of topics of spirit almost feels like a Sisyphean task. But you know what is said about that. Where shall I find the time? So nothing left to do but hit the trail. And because they kinow of such things I asked Joseph and Bilbo,
“Is this the road of a Fool?”
I think it may be.

Also In modern psychology, the term katabasis is sometimes used
to describe the depression some young men experience.
Author Robert Bly proposes in his book Iron John: A Book About Men several reasons for the "catabasis phenomenon",
amongst them the lack of Western initiation rites and the lack of strong father figures and role models.

What Are Hypnagogic and Hypnopompic Dreams?
Collecting links and information on the Pagan, Shamanism, Magick, Occult and New Age pages has been quite an endeavor. The hardest part is sorting them to their proper places. They are like a spiders web of interlocking lines running through history, creating a multifaceted living tapestry of continuously moving pictures. Shadows that transverse the landscape with the rising and setting of the sun. And as the stars appear we are aware of all the darkness that surrounds us, a metaphor perhaps for all that is still unknown about our universe and our selves.
But in the spirit of this site I will be continually adding more information to enlighten myself and you. Without the awakening, “God is a shadow, the soul a ghost, and life a dream .” But the again, some dreamtime is good.

The syllable gu means darkness, the syllable ru, he who dispels them,
Because of the power to dispel darkness, the guru is thus named.

"When I was tripping all the time, I was also trying out religions like suits of clothes. I studied Zen for a while and read koans and sat until my knees screamed. I chanted Hare Krishna and read the Upanishads and visited Indian gurus and did yoga.
I prayed the Jesus mantra and read esoteric ancient Christian texts and tripped and read the Bible, trying to make sense of it. When one is tripping weekly on LSD, and on God-knows-what all week long, it is possible, like Alice in Wonderland, “to believe three impossible things before breakfast.”
When you are trying on a religion, you can’t just put it on and step up in front of a mirror and see how it fits. You have to have at least a provisional belief in the new philosophy to see what it might be like to live that way. You have to try it out and act like you believe it for a while."

Combining of different, often contradictory beliefs, while blending practices of various schools of thought. Syncretism involves the merger and analogizing of several originally discrete traditions, especially in the theology and mythology of religion, thus asserting an underlying unity and allowing for an inclusive approach to other faiths.

"Man can pass through two births. In connection with the first birth we become individuals in relation to the mother. We are born physically. The light religions are preaching a return to the child state where one gives up freedom, will and responsibility to gain safety. Man can pass through another birth. In connection with his one we become individuals in relation to existence. We are leaving a life predetermined by outer conditions and are reaching a free will. Instead of being creations we become creators. Initiation rites among shamans, witches and magical societies have through the ages been a path to this second birth. The goal of the initiatoric magic of Dragon Rouge is a second birth and a self creation process that leads to the divinity of the individual. The goal of the initiatoric magic of Dragon Rouge is a second birth and a self creation process that leads to the divinity of the individual."
