"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

You are scrabbling about in the sand, attracted by pieces of mica to knit together and make a window, not realising that the sand itself is capable of being transformed into the purest glass.--From The Teachers of Gurdjieff

It makes it clear that one needs a living teacher in order to make progress on any path of truth.
Gurdjieff never appointed a successor because his task and experiment ended with his death.
Why else would he have stated "I leave you in a fine 'merde'"?
The book is a wake-up call and a message to those still attached to the "cult of personality" surrounding Gurdjieff.
Move on and find a real path.
Did the author "make it all up?"--whatever that might mean. I often find myself asking myself the same question about Gurdjieff. My own view is that Gurdjieff was a highly realized being, but that the trail went cold on his passing. According to the author of this book, his last words to his disciples were, "What a fine mess I've left you in." Indeed.
