Hermeneutics of New zModernism (Atropos 2014)

This site is an outgrowth of devoted to the Hieros Gamos Icon of the 21st century pioneered by C.G. Jung and Richard Tarnas and foreseen by Wolfgang Pauli as arising from under the crashing of the Aquarian Wave.

Here you will discover the apparatus of astrology in hermeneutics delivered into continental philosophy by Dr. Lisa Paul Streitfeld (Magna cum laude, European Graduate School, 2016) known on the web as #hieroshiva.


The excavation of an mythology of the ever-present icon of the Hieros Gamos at the birth of civilization between the Tigris & Euphrates Rivers provides a 360 degree perspective for the disclosing of the Aquarius archetypes.

The binary is to be surmounted by the quantum leap into the Third in real time by the Aquarian originators of this site.

Welcome aboard the crashing quantum wave!

Dr. Lisa Streitfeld has tirelessly worked to promote a new modernism sourced in an authentic gender balance known as the Hieros Gamos.

My 1995 book, Sacred Pleasure: Sex, Myth, and the Politics of the Body, traces this “sacred union” from prehistory to its distortion after the cultural shift to domination, including how it is radically changed in Christian dogma.
This union of inner and outer brings us to what I described in Sacred Pleasure as: “potential for a major evolutionary breakthrough toward—in the normative or value-related, rather than descriptive sense—a truly more evolved form of life.”

Dr. Streitfeld’s work on the Hieros Gamos is particularly important in the post #MeToo era.

She has uncovered some hidden artifacts in Cyprus that reflect this aspect of of the partnership model in a manner that has never been revealed before: the singular body.
