From the publisher: "Man has evolved from primitive cave dweller to virtual technological master of the world; yet he is also on the brink of destroying it. If this were the sum total of human progress, man might be justified in questioning its value. Thankfully, there is more. A shift of an infinitely more subtle nature took place many thousands of years ago, an inward expansion of the mind that placed the key to higher evolution within man's grasp. Few suspect its existence; fewer turn the mental key in the lock. But a minority has achieved transition and their experiences form the basis of Hermeticism. The Elusive Hermetic Art has presented itself in a series of disguises ranging from Chinese Taoism, the Mysteries of Ancient Egypt and Arabian Alchemy to the Rosicrucians, and beyond. The reasons for secrecy and elusiveness in the past were excellent. Now, in this complete exposition of the Hermetic code, it is possible to reveal how the knowledge was enciphered. Once the symbolism is revealed, many historical texts, both fact and fiction, yield a completely new meaning. Applied to the Gospel story, the results are clear: the presentation of Jesus as a living, historical entity was never meant to be read literally."
ISBN: 0906798736. Covers lightly rubbed and creased, page edges darkened, pages lightly browned. Still, overall a solid, clean VG copy.
