I can't remember the Cabbalistic name for the Universal, EGO-less

state of being. I need the name of this "state" for a paper I'm
writing on how dying cultures descend from "the human" toward that
which is human-less. In that downward direction towards the non-
human lies ________________, a state of formlessness, un-codified
and un-condensed, irreligious and universal, accessible to all human
beings yet profoundly inhuman and non-individualized. This state
(whose name I'm searching for) is an indistinct state that exists
beneath individual consciousness, like a state of sleep, unconscious
and unenlightened; in essence, a state in which the I AM has been
renounced in favor of that which is collectivized and non-human and
instinctual. In the direction of ___________________ lies modern
man's greatest fear: the Ahrimanic civilization that has evolved
beyond its humanity, the monster state epitomized in the twentieth
century by Nazi Germany and Bolshevik Russia.
The word CHOKMAH comes to mind.
******* Brother Ron may be of more help than I.
I've never heard it described that way, but perhaps you're referring to "Da'ath", the "Abyss", which is just below Chokmah and Binah.
Incidentally, in using the meditations Steiner gave to the First Class one comes to experience this Abyss as a reality on the spiritual Path.
