I have been working with 2 editions lately because of trying to dig out all messages, relevant to this “ill fated planet” now on its course to transhumanism. I prefer to use the books from 1973 (Copyright 1950 by G. Gurdjieff), the pdf form is a 1992 version which I use for excerpts.
Most changes I found of cosmetic order, but there is one which to my perception alters the meaning of an important subject:
It is in the chapter 43 Beelzebub’s Opinion of War (3th. book p.294 1950 Copyright)
….the vibrations required by Nature, which have to be formed from the radiations issuing from beings both during their existence as well as from the process of their Rascooarno, have no significance quantitatively, but only qualitatively.
…. the vibrations required by Great Nature that are formed from the emanations issuing from the process of their ‘rascooarno’ have no significance quantitatively, but only qualitatively.
In the first translation my logic reads that not only death but also the way of living create the vibrations required by Nature and it is the way of living which determines the quality of vibrations
In the second translation I read only death creates the vibrations required by Nature.
Perhaps some new people not so familiar with this work and having at their disposal but the last version of BT could come to the conclusion that only wars can satiate the needs of Nature (which seems exactly like what is going on at the moment, with all depopulation talks behind the scenes.
The VERY OPPOSITE message had Beelzebub in his mind for us. He wrote it specifically for the future generations because he predicted we would get ourselves into this mess we are right now.
1931 version has many differences and this additional paragraph was left out in the later versions :
“….As on your planet your favorites begun to dominate and had in themselves corresponding organizations, that is why during the whole time it was so, these vibrations required by Nature were obtained almost through the radiations of your favorites alone. But when Meditation disappeared from among your favorites and the quality of their radiations ceased to correspond to the vibrations required by Nature, then from that time on, Nature begun to replace these vibrations with the vibrations from which consists the essensification as it is called , or the life of the three-centered beings-men of the planet Earth.”
I am not a scholar but I would prefer eugenists to get the 1931 Manuscript into their hands rather than 1992 version. It would be safer for humanity.
After all – garbage in garbage out. Why not start with that?
