This was George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff's question. at early age he had realized a high degree of being experiencing the mindless mechanicality of man the wars, the destruction, the misery a question arose in him Why is there life on Earth? What purpose does it serve, if any? Gurdieff studied Ortodox religion and science but their answers did not satisfied he came to intuit that the wisdom societies of the ancient civilizations held the key to man's true identity and purpose humanity he recognized was in .... need of this knowledge for humanity had entered the crucial period in its development unless the wisdom of the east and the energy of the west he said could be harvested and used harmoniously, the world would be destroyed this is why on September 14, 1911 Gurdjieff took a vow to awaken people to a new level of being of consciousness of conscience in a word to a new type of man he vow to introduce and establish in the West the esoteric teaching of self-transformation he discovered one he said that was completely unknown upto the present time he called it "The Fourth Way" In his talks Gurdjieff gave a keen analysis of the modern dilemma there is a growth of personality he said at the cost of essence there is a growth of the artificial, the unreal and what is formed at the cost of the natural, the real and what is One's own he see everywhere the ... of vulgarity and inspidity of all kinds and in life we only see new divisions new hostility, new misunderstandings Gurdjieff called this: The Terror of The Situation To avoid a complete disaster it was necessary to achieve world harmony as soon as possible. It could not be achieved by politics, philosophy, religion or any organized movement that treated man in the mass. It could only be accomplished through the individual development of man. If enough individuals could develop themselves, even partially, into genuine natural beings, each such individual would then be able to convince and win over as many as a hundred others, who would, each in his turn, be able to influence another hundred and so on." - G. I. Gurdjieff In sum what Gurdjieff was saying was that everyone, like Atlas, would hold up, be responsible for, their own world and thus the larger World.
