Description

Octavo. xiv, 219 p. Boston : Kluwer-Nijhoff Pub. ; Hingham, MA, U.S.A. : Distributors for North America, Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1985.

Charles A. Muses (1919-2000), a figure who wrote articles and books under various pseudonyms (including Musès, Musaios, Kyril Demys, Arthur Fontaine, Kenneth Demarest and Carl von Balmadis), was the founder of the Lion Path, a shamanistic movement. He held unusual and controversial views relating to mathematics, physics, philosophy, and many other fields. Muses was born in Jersey City, New Jersey, and grew up in Long Island, New York. His father abandoned the fami ly when Muses was a young boy forcing his mother to support Muses and a large, extended family on a school teacher's salary. Years later he would remark in lectures that if his mother hadn't had an overarching faith in "young Charlie" he might never have been able to escape the confines of his impoverished youth. Muses' earned an M.A. in philosophy from Columbia University in 1947, followed by a Ph.D. in 1951. Muses had no success in attaining a tenured position as a faculty me mber at an institution of higher education. Forced to give lectures in order to earn a living, he wrote books and began traveling the world. He continued these pursuits for the remainder of his life. Muses eventually proposed an astrological method called 'chronotopology,' which he claimed could measure the qualitative multidimensional structure of time. He published a book on this subject titled "Chronotopology: Destiny and Control in Human Systems." It is currently out of print. Muses also envisioned a mathematical number concept, Musean hypernumbers, that includes hypercomplex number algebras such as complex numbers and split-complex numbers as primitive types. He assigned them levels based on certain arithmetical prop erties they may possess. While many open questions remain, in particular about defining relations of these levels, Muses pictured a wide range of applicability for this concept. Some of these are based on properties of magic squares [1], and even related to religious belief. He believed that these hypernumbers were central to issues of consciousness. To date, none of these visions have been realized, and his reliance on subjective experience to support models that are otherwise not ver ifiable or falsifiable places much of his work into the realm of pseudoscience (as it is not following the scientific method).

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
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...

Norse Mythology Norse Mythology
Gaiman, Neil
W.W. Norton & Co. Inc.

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...

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
