It is a very ancient idea that the good life consists essentially in a two step process: 1. Rising up out of the created world, turning towards the uncreated source, and 2. Returning to the created world, creating anew in conjunction with the source.   One could suppose that in the essentials this notion is perennial, and that with every new age it simply needs to be updated to cast out dogmatism (which is actually a recursive use of the notion itself )
