December 2020

Welcome to a special December edition of Hyperion Magazine.

Every once in a lifetime, and sometimes not even that, the world witnesses an inflection point. A time where the old falls to the wayside and the new bursts through the trees like the freckled light of a morning sun. We are on the precipice of change, heralded by the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn. This Great Conjunction marks a fading in from materialism to a rational, culturally creative and innovative society, and is the closest since 1623.

On the day of the Winter Solstice, we make a collective statement. The new world is ripe for exploration for those embodied, with heart, mind and soul in unison.

We prepare ourselves and you the reader, for tomorrow.

This edition highlights a heavy-hitting preview of the Patchwork manifesto with a side of fifth-dimension consciousness. Familiar favourites, echoing the voice of a nation weigh in on consumerism and aligning yourself. The technological concerns of the future in augmented reality and the chaos that can ensue with its logical endpoint make a statement. We have two perspectives on the role of groups and tribe, with the nature of tribe and the inevitability of leadership discussed. Cutting closer to the wick, surviving the information war and racing to the truth leave no stone unturned. Finally, Thomas Bevan returns to spell the end of news as we know it. 

With so much value packed into this months issue, we know you will enjoy thoroughly. Imbibe, and raise a glass to a dawning of a new age.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays from all at Hyperion.
