The imaginal realm is the all-encompassing realm of the mind, replete with an entire dictionary and vocabulary of images. These images constitute all that is knowable in the sensible and supersensible worlds. This universal index of images is accessed through imaginal intelligence, and is what connects us to the Primal Source.
Planetary culture is best defined in terms of anomalies, for anomalies express the limits to the categories of the old “paradigm.” Planetary culture is neither world-denying mysticism nor world-destroying materialism; it is a Pythagorean synthesis of science, religion, and art; it is spiritual ecstasy and political economy, preindustrial magic and postindustrial technology, myth and history; in short, it is an embodiment of transcendence.
