The New Age

Though the ancient mystics were aware of The Sidereal Calendar with its 36,000-year cycle through the twelve ages, it has only been since the mid to late 1960s that talk about a new age began percolating amidst the fringes of society. With the help of The Beatles, those early days of transcendental meditation and consciousness raising started an upswing in the questioning of reality. Of course, there were other influences that brought eastern philosophies to America, such as Paramahansa Yogananda with The Self Realization Fellowship in the early part of the 20th century, but it took decades for interest in these new ways of thinking to take hold in The United States. In recent years, books and other media about the workings of universal law and quantum physics have shed light on the subject.
