Tardemah: The Creation of Man According to an Ancient Hebraic Source (Out of Print)
by Frank, Morris
Binding: Hardcover with dust jacket
Book ID: A6896, A6896
Kaedmon Publishing 1978. isbn 091300202X. Edited posthumously by Robert M. Hoffstein. Near Fine/VG.
From the jacket:
"Man has existed in a deep magnetic sleep almost from the very beginningof his existence on earth and today, despite his great boast of progress he still remains asleep .. chained and mechanized to serve laws that are beyond his knowledge and control ..." are the opening words of the prologue to Tardemah, morris Frank's deeply poetic rendering of the Creation Story.
Through his profound understanding of the Old Testament Mr Frank has "recalled" Adam and Eve, Lucifer, the Arch Cunning, and Yahweh-Elohim to have them instruct us in the ancient art of "making a man". Tardemah is a psychological exercise in self-remembering.
"And the spirit of Elohim spoke within Adam Kadmon and said: 'All powers in heaven and earth are yours. All spirits, supernal and infernal within you are prepared to serve you, each with its own peculiar powers to your completebeing. Love them, for they are your own creative force, but do not favor one above the other lest you create disorder in your midst ... The free, unobstructed universe is your home, yours to travel in and return at willl. Live in it and explore it to the utmost and in that way fulfill your reason for existence.'
But then Nachash, the Serpent, warned Adam Kadmon: "In that terrible power of Tardemah a being forgets who he is, and becomes hypnotized by what he sees, saying 'I am that' or 'I am so and so' ... and thus his life, which is in its primal essence is truly immortal has by its involvement in an imaginary self become mortal.'"
And so three forces are drawn together: the supernal Yahweh-Elohim, the infernal Nachesh and the Man to be made, in a cosmic drama that Morris Frank unfolds with the skill of a great teacher.

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
