Last updated over 1 year ago. What is this?

Rapture ideology, as defined by Jamie Wheal, encapsulates a belief system that envisions an imminent, transformative event wherein the faithful or enlightened are transported or elevated to a higher plane of existence, often escaping current worldly crises and concerns. This ideology is not confined to traditional religious narratives but extends into secular and techno-utopian realms, where breakthroughs in science, technology, or consciousness could similarly usher in a transcendent era. At its core, rapture ideology reflects both a deep yearning for ultimate salvation and an escape from the constraints of the human condition, promising deliverance from the chaos and suffering of everyday life into a utopian future, whether that be spiritual, technological, or metaphysical.
