Description

Terence McKenna and Mystic Fire's Sheldon Rochlin teamed up in the mid-1990s to make this rich and beautiful film. Filmed in Prague, it transports us into the alchemical renaissance of King Frederick V of Bohemia to show how this early attempt at creating an alchemical kingdom led to the European Renaissance, Cartesian science, and the beginnings of rationalism in the Western mindset. McKenna gives his finest performance as John Dee, court magician for England's Queen Elizabeth I - a worthy eulogy to his genius.

IOriginally titled Coincidencia Oppositorum: The Unity of Opposites with Terence portraying his usual erudite rendition of the Irish Bard, this filmed classic takes us on a journey into the alchemical renaissance of Europe.

"It sounds incredible, but in this film, McKenna outlines the political economic and alchemical history of Europe and the entire hermetic tradition virtually from it's inception to the 17th Century. Like all skilled storytellers, he draws the viewer along with him into a half known world of intrigue, espionage and mystery. The background scenery is gorgeous and the film is stunning in it's cinematography. With this film, the viewer gets more than expected. It is truly a legacy for modern mankind. --New Dawn Magazine

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...

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...
