METAPHYSICS AND ANGELS

There are two distinct branches of the contemporary revival of interest in angels, one associated with traditional religious denominations and the other with the occult/metaphysical subculture frequently referred to as the New Age movement. Partly because of the vagueness of the term New Age, and partly because the term has acquired negative connotations, members of this alternative spiritual subculture prefer to refer to themselves and their subculture by other names. One of these terms is metaphysical, although it has been applied so loosely that it has become as vague as New Age.

The term metaphysical originates from the arrangement of Aristotle’s works, in which Aristotle’s speculations about the ultimate nature of reality were placed after (Greek, meta) his writings on physicshence, metaphysics. Throughout the history of Western philosophy, metaphysics has been concerned with the aspect of a thinker’s philosophical system that deals with ultimate reality. For medieval religious philosophers, these reflections often included speculations about angels. As a distant echo of these speculations, contemporary metaphysical discussions sometimes refer to the medieval question, How many angels can dance on the head of a pin? (The correct answer is an infinite number, because angels do not occupy space.)

In contrast to reductionistic philosophers who declared that everything was material, as well as in contrast to dualistic philosophers who argued for the existence of mind and matter, a number of important thinkers-most notably George Berkeley (1685-1753) and Georg Hegel (1770-1831)-declared that the ultimate nature of reality was mind or spirit. The physical world appears real but, like the landscape of dreams, is actually a manifestation of our collective thoughts. This school of metaphysics is traditionally referred to as idealism (a confusing term because of other connotations with the word idealism). Other, more popular thinkers such as Emanuel Swedenborg and Andrew Jackson Davis were (correctly or incorrectly) identified as idealists, which caused the notion of angels to become associated with idealism.

One should also note that certain schools of South Asian philosophy, such as Advaita Vedanta, advocate a position that, while not the same as Western idealism, similarly denies the reality of physical world as we experience it in our normal, everyday state of consciousness. Through the translation of Asian philosophical texts, these schools of thought were becoming known to the West, and were sometimes referred to in discussions of philosophical idealism. South Asian thought systems also contributed the notion of karma to this admixture of ideas-a notion of cause and effect that could be interpreted to imply that the person in question was ultimately responsible for everything that she or he experienced. South Asian religion would also be the source for the term deva, which became the standard Theosophical term for angel.

The basic thrust of these strands of philosophical theorizing was picked up by the popular nineteenth-century healing movement referred to as mind cure. The mind cure movement eventually generated a number of different denominational bodies, most notably Christian Science, but also Unity, Science of Mind, and related New Thought churches. While few thinkers in the mind cure movement delved into the intricacies of Western philosophy, they knew enough to be able to refer intelligently to philosophical idealism in their explanation of why the mind cure worked: If everything is simply thoughts in manifestation, then obviously illness is no more than a wrong-headed idea. Hence, replacing a sick idea with a healthy idea should effect a cure. It is this connection with philosophical idealism that led the various religious bodies arising out of the mind cure movement to be referred to as metaphysical churches.

Members of these New Thought denominations often participate in the same general subculture as non-mind cure organizations, such as Spiritualism and Theosophy. The association of these diverse religious bodies with less formal expressions of the same kinds of spirituality constitute what has been referred to as the “occult-metaphysical” subculture, or the occult-metaphysical tradition. It was this subculture that gave birth to the New Age movement. However, because of the negative connotations that have accrued both to “new age” and “occult,” metaphysical came to be adopted as a general term to refer to the entire subculture. Thus, for instance, bookstores that cater to members of this tradition of alternative spirituality are often called “metaphysical bookstores.”

In summary, to clarify a murky term, one should distinguish at least three meanings of the term metaphysical as it applies to angels: (1) philosophizing about ultimate reality, (2) the mind cure movement, especially as represented by New Thought denominations, and (3) the metaphysical-occult/New Age subculture. While angels are associated with all three meanings of the term, the contemporary revival of interest in angelic beings is particularly “metaphysical” in the third sense.
