How Jews Saved The Ring
In the last update of this blog I posted the article “Richard Wagner Was Not an Anti-Semite.” I stand by my statements in that article. However, I should have entitled it “Richard Wagner Did Not Discriminate Against Individual Jews.” It is an established fact that he constantly spoke disparagingly against Jews, as a race. There is no excuse for his behavior, but the situation is not simple. Hopefully the article “How Jews Saved The Ring,” will help set the record straight.
Fricka and Other Goddesses
Fricka is in the same category as many other evil goddesses and queens. It is all part of the evolution of consciousness.
(In a previous article, Parsifal and 2012, I said that Crete was where Odysseus killed Cyclops. Since then I have become convinced this was not the case. This article will explain why I changed my mind.)
Wagner was not an Anti-Semite
Wagner may have had his faults, but he was actually a passionate supporter of Jews and other minorities. Due to Hitler’s misinterpretation of Wagner and his works, the extreme anti-Semitism of Wagner’s second wife, and some ambiguous writing on the composer’s part, it has generally been believed that Wagner was a fanatical anti-Semite. This article sums up several reasons why this is an unjustified assessment.
2012 and Parsival
The Maya calendar, and those of several other ancient civilizations, have a connection to the Precession of the Equinoxes. So, too, do the Ring Cycle operas and Parisval.
Hitler and Siegfried
Does Wagner deserved to be blamed for Hitler’s infatuation with Siegfried? This article compares Wagner’s Siegfried to Hitler’s Siegfried.
Wagner, Parsival, and the Grail
Wagner was dedicated to the evolution of consciousness. His attitude towards the Divine Feminine reflects this.
Hegel, John Dewey, Wagner, and Steiner
Philosophy, academia, history – its all here. Hegel’s philosophy was the major philosophical influence in Germany at the time Wagner was creating The Ring. It has also been a major component of United States culture. This article explains how Wagner made these operas to enlighten the public about the evils of Hegelism.
Esoteric Aspects of Wagner’s Music and Libretti
Both the music and the libretto of Wagner’s music hold many surprises, which few people are aware of.
The 2,160 year Cycle and The Ring
The Hindus, Mayans, Greeks and many other ancient civilizations have believed in the 2,160 year cycles, also know as great months. Modern Science believes in them, too. Wagner’s Ring Cycle and Parsival are about these great months.
