"Prophets in Our Midst: Jung, Tolkien, Gebser, Sri Aurobindo and The Mother" Looks like it might be an interesting book.

The mechanisation of life and thought specified by the Metamachine is what Blake rages against as Urizen's "dark Satanic Mill". Some find this reassuringly predictable way of life, while others not chafe against the constraints this puts on life's spontaneity. Basic stress.
Beginning Almaas's large tome *The Inner Journey Home: Soul's Realization of the Unity of Reality*. He's quite brilliant. That "inner journey home" is, of course, the tale of the Prodigal Son, who is the "falcon" of Yeats poem "The Second Coming".
His book *The Point of Existence* is equally brilliant -- charting a path for the transformation of narcissistic mind into authentic self-realization if we care to take it. Much needed in this "culture of narcissism".
I don't think we have really come to grips with the implications of Nietzsche's psychology of nihilism, or Jung's concerns about the irruption of "the Shadow" in our time, or Blake's description of the horrors of the fall and madness of Urizen -- all pointing to the same thing.
Replying to
Blake already foresaw, in his Prophetic Books, the coming derangement, disintegration and increasing incoherence of the mind of Urizen, our real Matrix, just as Nietzsche did and called it "nihilism". But also as a time of great transitions.
Gebser speaks of "the Law of the Earth" as something we must fulfill in our own lives or have it imposed upon us automatically with much resentment and wailing and gnashing of teeth. The Law of the Earth is much akin to what Buddhism refers to as "impermanence".
