Light through the Ages

"LIGHT THROUGH THE AGES" Inspired by the grandeur of nature and the enormity of the universe, the 135 pioneer thinkers, pictured in the mosaic traveled many different paths as they searched the valleys of false knowledge and penetrated dark woods to find the bright, open fields of spiritual truth. The centuries unroll left to right from Pherecydes (6th century B.C.), the teacher of Pythagoras, to such modern day pioneers as Dr. Elisabeth Kuebler-Ross. Edgar Cayce, who gave us the most concrete evidence of the continuity of life through many incarnations and beyond, is surrounded by some of the great figures throughout history who held kindred beliefs: Walter and Lao Russell, the Alcotts, Jack London, Thomas Edison, Mahatma Gandhi, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henrik Ibsen, Madame Blavatsky, William Judge, Albert Schweitzer, Carl Gustav Jung, Pearl Buck, Henry David Thoreau, Walt Whitman, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Arthur Schopenhauer, Richard Wagner, Leo Tolstoy, Leslie Dixon Weatherhead, John Masefield, John Ellis McTaggert, Piet Mondrian, Emanuel Swedenborg, Giordano Bruno, Plato, and Ammonius Saccas - to name but some. Many complimentary relationships are woven into this historic structure of the evolution of discoveries and ideas. The work of Franz Anton Mesmer, the founder of mesmerism, is extended by that of Albert de Rochas d'Aiglun, who recorded the first modern prenatal regression in 1904, which in turn was further researched by Dr. Helen Stewart Wambach, who conducted and analyzed such regressions scientifically. It is gratifying to note the appearance of women into the intellectual history depicted by the painting, beginning in the 19th century. Some of the vacant spots in the canvas signify the slowing of the growth of knowledge during the Dark Ages. The composition is understood to extend beyond the edges of the collection in all directions, reflecting the impossibility of capturing all of the mental and spiritual geniuses, both past and present and from all parts of the globe who are a testimony to the belief in the continuity of human life.
