Beat literature & arts as a medium that re-introduces in people’s feelings the possibility to change the world, transforming its social rules by using new technologies as instruments for emancipation. Feeling the link between the beat movement and hipster’s hopes of the beginning of the XX century, with the need to reflect on the meaning of two WW as barriers to people’s emancipation. From the non-academic side of the perspective, the essay indicates some special sources, trying to demonstrate how beat literature has shaped new meanings to words like “occult”, “magic”, linking them with other words like “awareness” and “emancipation”. Doing this, a tribute is given to the historical role played by the magazine “International Times” as living witness of the years when beat literature was germinating into the generational protest. The conclusions are oriented towards the meaning in the present for a beat attitude to (social) life, with the new awareness of the way indicated by Allen Ginsberg about the unuseful dimension of drugs as instruments to get the real vision, which is never the one of slavery and always the one of emancipation: here the need to substitute them with natural tools to be able to extract them from unconscious through yoga and meditation systems. This may help to create a new kind of people, involved in a cosmopolitan interpretation of life, able to interconnect by the new information and communication technologies, ready to create a new social intellect.

Ideas are like germs and they don’t diffuse through populations of people at random, instead, they make their way through networks – that is the kind of relationships we may have with people, creating connections with others. Changes in communication system (Internet, on the immaterial side, the mobility system on the physical side) are creating new opportunities to create network both on the immaterial and on the physical side. Conference driven by intellectual affinities and wishes to know better each others culture seems to generate the conditions of a new kind of people, creating cosmopolitan attitude as something that can be shared by an increasing number of people.

Qur’an Thelema is a enlightening interpretation of the Holy Koran, a fundamental chapter to reciprocal understanding between Eastern and Western spiritualism. The book was more received than wrote. This happened as outcome of a spiritual experience in the higher side of the volcano Etna, entwined with Sufi tradition (into the Naqshabandi Order).
The emerging knowledge, in the full respect of the Holy Koran, is focused on the most advanced exegesis, which are aware that this Book, the Seal of Tradition, holds in itself some truth that have not yet understood, and that will be clear when the time will come. The Holy Koran is a Book of Perfection, and this poem wants to stay in this line, offering a perspective to enlightening some aspects that may be of great interest to the ones that are involved with their inner soul with that special form of jihad that is to overcome our limits and make some steps forward in the everlasting path of perfection.
This Poem starts from the real side of life, with the innocence of a nursery rhyme. Then it conquers the dimension of the Allegory. This more complex level preludes to something that enter in touch with archetypes, until the last dream, which enter inside one of the most important myths of every time, and not just to have a vision, but with another and very specific aim: to eat the fruit, that is to have a journey into awareness to know what counsciosness knows since always; that we are one with the breath of the universe, that there’s no fault, that there’s just life and we are inside. There’s a flux that comes and go from and to the stars. Stay inside, stay into the deep consciousness of the universe. This is unconditioned Love, this is the Way.
