The thought crossed my mind the other day that the movie Fight Club is an allegory of spiritual enlightenment. Aside from the obvious, you have Tyler as the “divine masculine” and Marla as the “divine feminine”, both of whom are, of course, parts of Ed Norton’s narrator, guiding him to become his best, whole self. In a very LHP manner, that self is not one that adheres to any of our cultural rules. When that wholeness is achieved, the world outside is literally destroyed.
So I decided to see if anyone else had this opinion and found a really good article that more-or-less has that idea but links it up all to Gnosticism.
It’s a cool article and actually explains Gnosticism better than any other source I’ve encountered. Just thought I’d share as some of you folks might find it interesting.
