Record of a Search, Working with Michel Conge in France by Ricardo Guillon — a translation of Guillon’s Notas de una Busqueda, published in Santiago in 1993
From the book: Some members of the group who had just returned from holidays were lamenting that they had left for the summer with charged batteries, but that little by little, everything was ebbing away. They said they were losing attention and were giving up their exercises.
“This is why a group is necessary,” Dr. Conge responded. “We learn from others how to recharge, until we are finally able to do this by ourselves.”
“As with all organic life on earth,” he continued, “we are subject to having our energy constantly drained. All organic life is governed by planetary laws, such that, without our knowing it, we are food for other organisms. Fortunately, a possibility exists for us to escape being an object that can be eaten or manipulated. That is our task.”
About Michel Conge: Michel Conge was born in Pau, southwest France, in 1912. Early in his life he decided to devote himself to “seeking the real behind appearances”. His quest first led him to medicine. While working as a medical biologist at the Pasteur Institute in Paris he met the writer René Daumal, who introduced him to Jeanne de Salzmann. She soon invited him to work directly with G.I. Gurdjieff. Beginning in 1949, and with the active encouragement of Gurdjieff and Mme de Salzmann, Conge gathered around himself and his wife, Gilles, a nucleus of men and women whose search he accompanied and led until his death in 1984.
The book includes a talk by Conge given in Santiago in August 1966.
The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More

Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.
In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...
