Abstract: Članek osvetljuje aspekte misticizma v kontekstu ruskega zanimanja za vesolje in razvoja sovjetske vesoljske tehnologije. Znanstveni pristop, kasneje generiran s strani države, in človekovo izvorno navduševanje nad neznanim in mističnim se združita v edinstvenem fenomenu »materialističnega misticizma« ruskega kozmizma, ki oblikuje načrt za metafizično reormo sveta s tehnologijo. Kozmizem se odmika od socialističnega načrta formiranja nove družbe, hkrati pa se kozmizem in komunizem drug drugemu približata v boju za »skupni smoter« očetovstva in bratstva. Razmišljanje o preteklosti mistike, politike, umetnosti in tehnologije na ruskem področju razkriva paradigmo zlitja različnih metod človekovega osmišljanja nove (še skrite) plati resničnosti na enotnem kulturnem poligonu dveh poti – tehnologije in mistike – ter njunega prepleta.
This paper aims to highlight some o the mystical aspects of the Soviet space exploration and to show how objective science and technology interweaves with the subjective spirituality in the Russian philosophical, artistic, and political traditions. We are focusing on the philosophy of Russian Cosmism that unites scientific and ystical approaches in order to provide the scheme for colonizing the unknown spaciousness of the cosmos. Thisunique phenomenon of “materialistic mysticism” sets out to metaphysically transform the world with technology. Russian Cosmists saw nature as a work in progress, which humans must perfect – a notion which is still alive today in the contemporary thought of Transhumanism. The idea o one “common task” of all people joined together in brotherhood also indicates some similarities between communism and cosmism, both of which are on the mission to create the “new man” and the “new world”.
