Description

Our 2010 First US Edition of Existence has been updated for our present time with a new foreword essay and index by editor Anthony Blake, author of The Intelligent Enneagram.

EXISTENCE IS ALL THAT CAN BE KNOWN but it is not all that is real. In The Dramatic Universe Bennett created a framework for thinking about how the universe could exist while permitting real freedom and intelligence to make a difference. One of his major steps was to insist on the significant reality of the non-existent. Existence is as it were "riddled with holes" without which evolution, consciousness and will could not even be experienced. Embracing physics and theology this volume explores the nature and limits of existence and how higher, unconditioned or spiritual influences can reach us through the veil of limitation.

Bennett concludes "that the conditioned world does give evidence of the unconditioned, not as a separate reality out of communication with this world but as the source of operations of a kind that cannot be accounted for within existence and would be both meaningless and impossible without hazard."

"Bennett's ideas belong to the new age. In one of his diaries he once wrote: 'Great ideas are being revealed through me and I must not care what happens to them.' Whatever our mental powers and training, which are largely just a matter of our functions, each and every one of us can come to see something of the truth expressed in these ideas."_Anthony Blake

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...

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...

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...

Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.
