Description

Drawing from the transcripts of two seminars given in 2005 in London, the author continues her exploration of the Chinese classical texts with an in-depth look at the concept of yin yang. Selections from non-medical texts use existing English translations, and those from medical classics are translated by the author. Examining early writings of the Sping and Autumn Annals, the Daoist classics of Laozi, Zhuangzi, and Huananzi, and the medical texts of the Yellow Emperor and the Neijing Suwen, Rochat explains the development of these ideas from their early associations with the weather and their interpretation as heat and cold, light and dark, to their more widespread use to compare and contrast any phenomena, and to explain their movement and interaction. Along with the concept of qi, an understanding of yin yang helps us to absorb the perspective that is fundamental to classical Chinese thinking, a perspective quite different from that of the modern West. It speaks of relationship, mutual resonance, constant change, and transformation. Yin yang underpins this interrelationship and codependence. These ancient texts suggest a universe in which humans are not only part of the larger web of life, they are indeed responsible for their actions, for their emotions, and for their health, and by extension, responsible for the health of the planet.

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.

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...

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

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...
