In the fall of 2001 I visited the community of Damanhur at the urging of Michael Gosney and Ron Anastasia (co-producers of the Paradox Conference at Arcosanti in Arizona) and a variety of curious community-seekers in the San Francisco Bay Area.
One of Damanhur's asserted goals is the re-awakening of the human being; as a spiritual, material, divine being, free from the patterns that reduce its essence.
In Damanhur the most significant aspects of the day and year are marked by ritual moments in which the meaning and the awareness of existence is celebrated.

 The Damanhur of Italy, the system of time travel to the past
When the leaders of Damanhur, a utopian and somewhat phantasmagorically-inclined spiritual kibbutz in Catholic-dominated northern Italy, claimed that its members could go back in time, the first honest reaction was a titter.
In clinically scientific terms, the concepts of time travel is a matter of such insanely complicated theoretical meta-mathematics that it keeps most cults from claiming to have sat and quaffed wine with Charlemagne or gazed upon Gautama the Buddha.
If anything, it has dug its toes in; as of March 1996, one Damanhur 'credit' is worth 1,400 liras, said to be fully convertible within the valley; the organization has purchased, upfront and cash-down, 120 hectares of dense woodland, 5 hectares of slickly built-up urban surface, 60 hectares of fecund farmland, and over 70 buildings.
