‘That Archetypal World Is The True Golden Age’

‘That archetypal world is the true Golden Age, age of Kronos, whose very name suggests (in Greek) Abundance (κóρoς) and Intellect (νoûς). For here is contained all that is immortal: nothing here but is Divine Mind; all is God; this is the place of every soul. Here is rest unbroken: for how can that seek change, in which all is well; what need that reach to, which holds all within itself; what increase can that desire, which stands utterly achieved’?

Plotinus, (2005-06-30). The Enneads (Classics) (p. 351). Penguin Classics. Kindle Edition.
