It was the dream of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table to create the golden-age society which Plato had dreamed of, Francis Bacon later wrote about and also Thomas More and his Utopia. And we in our childhood dreams have also longed for this ideal society—we speak of the idealism of youth, the reaching out for that which is perhaps unrealistic, impractical, but it is that surge of creative energy that is not yet stagnated, that flow of life—as Above so below. The dream is also recorded in the prophecy of John in the Book of Revelation. “And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon to shine in it for the glory of God did lighten it and the Lamb is the light thereof.”
- Rev. 21:13.
