<B>Battle for the Etheric Realm </B><I> Moral Technique and Etheric Technology - Apocalyptic Symptoms</I>, THOMAS, NICK,  COLLIS, JOHANNA
1 Battle for the Etheric Realm Moral Technique and Etheric Technology - Apocalyptic Symptoms
THOMAS, NICK, COLLIS, JOHANNA
1906999465 / 9781906999469 2013 Paperback 
Using an accessible question-and-answer format, this short but focused book tackles themes relating to the etheric - or life - realm. What is etheric technology? What are the impacts of radioactivity and atomic energy? How should we read apocalyptic symptoms in science and society? In a fascinating series of discussions Nick Thomas examines a range of concepts, including: the right and wrong ways to develop an etheric technology; spiritual events in the etheric realm; how the physical world works into the etheric world and vice versa; Rudolf Steiner's 'Strader machine'; the nature of truth and lies; attacks by the adversaries on forces of vitality; and humanity's crossing of the threshold to the spiritual world. His explanations and ideas help to evoke a living picture of a great struggle between forces of good and evil, with the future of humanity and the Earth at stake.
NICK THOMAS trained as an electrical engineer in the Royal Air Force, serving as an officer for 16 years, and later worked in data communications for Nortel. He was General Secretary of the Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain for 21 years, and researched the practical application of projective geometry with colleagues Lawrence Edwards and John Wilkes. His major research interest is the development and application of Steiner’s discovery of negative space, with the aim of building a bridge between conventional and spiritual science. He lectures widely on this and other subjects, and is the author of Science Between Space and Counterspace and Space and Counterspace.

<B>Chartres </B><I> </I>, STRACHAN, GORDON
2 Chartres
STRACHAN, GORDON
0863153917 / 9780863153914 
From the author of bestseller Jesus the Master Builder. Gordon Strachan, is back with a ground-breaking new work. In this book he explores the magnificent structure of Chartres Cathedral, and examines the influences on the medieval master builders. Using Chartres as a starting point, Dr Strachan suggests that the origins of the Gothic style may lie in Islamic architecture. He goes on to consider how the experience of a particular architectural space affects us, and how sacred geometry works.

Beautifully illustrated in a large format, this is an inspiring and informative book for anyone interested in religious architecture and spirituality.

Gordon Strachan (1934-2010) was a lecturer, church minister and independent thinker. He is the author of six books: The Pentecostal Theology of Edward Irving; Christ and the Cosmos (later republished as The Bible's Hidden Cosmology); Jesus the Master Builder; Chartres: Sacred Geometry, Sacred Space; The Return of Merlin; and Prophets of Nature.

3 Cymatics Vol 1 and 2
JENNY HANS
1888138076 / 9781888138078 
Dr. Jenny's cymatic images are truly awe-inspiring, not only for their visual beauty in portraying the inherent responsiveness of matter to sound (vibration) but because they inspire a deep recognition that we, too, are part and parcel of this same complex and intricate vibrational matrix - the music of the spheres! These pages illumine the very principles which inspired the ancient Greek philosophers Heraclitus, Pythagoras and Plato, and cosmologists Giordano Bruno and Johannes Kepler.

<B>Fourth Dimension GA324a </B><I> Sacred Geometry, Alchemy and Mathematics</I>, STEINER, RUDOLF,  CREEGER, C.E.
7 Fourth Dimension GA324a Sacred Geometry, Alchemy and Mathematics
STEINER, RUDOLF, CREEGER, C.E.
0880104724 / 9780880104722 2001 Paperback 
The point, line, plane and solid objects represent the first three dimensions, but a kind of reversal of space is involved in the ascent to a fourth dimension. Steiner leads us to the brink of this new perspective - as nearly as it can be done with words, diagrams, analogies and examples of many kinds. In doing so, he continues his lifelong project of demonstrating that our objective, everyday thinking is the lowest rung of a ladder that reaches up to literally infinite heights.

The talks in this series and the selections from the question-and-answer sessions on many mathematical topics over the years are translated into English for the first time in The Fourth Dimension. They bring us to tantalizing new horizons of awareness where Steiner hoped to lead his listeners.

Topics include:
*The relationship between geometric studies and developing direct perception of spiritual realities
*How to construct a fourth-dimensional hypercube
*The six dimensions of the self-aware human being
*Problems with the theory of relativity
*The Trinity and angelic hierarchies and their relationship to physical space
*The dimensional aspect of the spiritual being encountered by Moses on Mt. Sinai

The Fourth Dimension is a translation from German of Die vierte Dimension Mathematik und Wirklichkeit (GA 324a).

<B>Freedom Through Love </B><I> The Search for Meaning in Life</I>, THOMAS, NICK
8 Freedom Through Love The Search for Meaning in Life
THOMAS, NICK
1906999570 / 9781906999575 
Rudolf Steiner’s Philosophy of Freedom
What does it mean to be human? What is knowledge? What is freedom? Philosophy offers answers to these questions, but are its rarefied arguments relevant to people today, or just abstractions? Are we not more preoccupied with day-to-day survival and the unending problems surrounding human relationships?
Yet most if not all people seek for meaning in life. We are not content with being specks on a random planet in a solar system, part of a vast clockwork universe. To dismiss consciousness as worthless, or merely the play of chance, is to give up on finding real meaning in existence.
Freedom Through Love offers possibilities for dealing with some of these big questions, leading to satisfying and convincing conclusions. Although based on Rudolf Steiner’s Philosophy of Freedom, Nick Thomas does not begin his book with complex philosophical arguments, but with themes that reflect modern times. ‘Let us not start with abstract questions far from life, but from life itself!’, he states in his opening page. Thus the search for meaning, truth, freedom and love begins with the realities of daily life – people and their relationships – as these constitute the most difficult, but real, issues of contemporary society.
NICK THOMAS trained as an electrical engineer in the Royal Air Force, serving as an officer for 16 years, and later worked in data communications for Nortel. He was General Secretary of the Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain for 21 years, and researched the practical application of projective geometry with colleagues Lawrence Edwards and John Wilkes. His major research interest is the development and application of Steiner’s discovery of negative space, with the aim of building a bridge between conventional and spiritual science. He lectures widely on this and other subjects, and is the author of Science Between Space and Counterspace and Space and Counterspace.

<B>Heart of the Matter, The </B><I> Discovering the Laws of Living Organisms</I>, WHICHER, OLIVE
12 Heart of the Matter, The Discovering the Laws of Living Organisms
WHICHER, OLIVE
190699983X / 9781906999834 2015 
In this concise and richly-illustrated work, Olive Whicher introduces a radical new science of living organisms, forms and processes, based on the pioneering work of Rudolf Steiner and his pupil George Adams.

If we are to understand fully the laws of living nature, she argues, it is necessary to overcome the one-sided ideas of modern science – ideas that are only adequate to describe material forms and forces. We need to widen our thinking to include the ‘etheric formative forces’ – forces that are alive in ethereal space or ‘counterspace’. Such forces work in plants, for example, by drawing matter upwards in a suctional manner, in contrast to the forces of gravity, which draw downwards, and the forces of an explosion, which work upward and outward.

This easily-digestible introduction will be valuable to anybody seeking to comprehend the living world around us.

OLIVE MARY WHICHER (1910-2006) was born in Winchester, England, and became fluent in French and German. She joined the Anthroposophical Society in 1935 in London, where she met George Adams. She worked as his research assistant in the fields of science, mathematics and physics, and has authored several books, including Projective Geometry, The Plant Between Sun and Earth and Sunspace. Olive Whicher taught for many years at Emerson College, Sussex, and lectured widely throughout Europe and the United States.

<B>Hidden Geometry of Flowers, The </B><I> Living Rhythms, Form and Number</I>, CRITCHLOW, KEITH
13 Hidden Geometry of Flowers, The Living Rhythms, Form and Number
CRITCHLOW, KEITH
0863158064 / 9780863158063 2011 Paperback 
560 colour illustrations
Can we imagine a world without flowers? Flowers are beautiful, offering us delight in their colour, fragrance and form, as well as their medicinal benefits. Flowers also speak to us in the language of the plant form itself, as cultural symbols in different societies, and at the highest levels of inspiration. In this beautiful and original book, renowned thinker and geometrist Keith Critchlow has chosen to focus on an aspect of flowers that has received perhaps the least attention. This is the flower as teacher of symmetry and geometry (the 'eternal verities', as Plato called them). In this sense, he says, flowers can be treated as sources of remembering -- a way of recalling our own wholeness, as well as awakening our inner power of recognition and consciousness. What is evident in the geometry of the face of a flower can remind us of the geometry that underlies all existence.

Working from his own flower photographs and with every geometric pattern hand-drawn, the author reviews the role of flowers within the perspective of our relationship with the natural world. His illuminating study is an attempt to re-engage the human spirit in its intimate relation with all nature.

<B>Jesus the Master Builder: Druid Mysteries and the Dawn of Christianity </B><I> </I>, STRACHAN, GORDON
15 Jesus the Master Builder: Druid Mysteries and the Dawn of Christianity
STRACHAN, GORDON
0863152953 / 9780863152955 Paperback 
The activities of Jesus before the start of his ministry at the age of thirty, have been the subject of much speculation. Did he travel beyond the bounds of Palestine in his search for wisdom knowledge? Where did he acquire the great learning which amazed those who heard him preaching and enabled him to cross swords in debate with Scribes and Pharisees? A number of legends suggest that Jesus travelled to the British Isles with Joseph of Arimathea, who worked in the tin trade. With these legends as his starting point, Gordon Strachan uncovers a fascinating network of connections between the Celtic world and Mediterranean culture and philosophy. Taking the biblical image of Wisdom as the 'master craftsman,' Strachan explores the deep layers of Mystery knowledge shared between the Judaic-Hellenic world and the northern Druids - from the secret geometry of masons and builders, which Jesus would have encountered in his work as a craftsman in Palestine, to the Gematria or number coding of the Old and New Testaments.

Gordon Strachan teaches in the Department of Architecture and Centre for Continuing Education at the University of Edinburgh

<B>Making Geometry </B><I> Exploring Three-Dimensional forms</I>, ALLEN JOHN
16 Making Geometry Exploring Three-Dimensional forms
ALLEN JOHN
0863159141 / 9780863159145 
Following on from his successful Drawing Geometry, Jon Allen explores the creation of the many-sided three-dimensional forms known as the Platonic and Archimedean solids. Based on patterns of equally spaced points on a sphere, these polyhedra have been the fundamentals of geometric exploration for millennia. Many professionals find they need to be able to build three-dimensional shapes accurately, and understand the principles behind them. This unique book shows them how to make models of all the Platonic and Archimedean solids, as well as several other polyhedra and stellated forms. It provides step-by-step instructions for constructing the three-dimensional forms, as well as showing how to draw out accurately the geometry of the paperfold nets.

Beginners and experienced artists and designers alike will find this book a source of practical guidance, as well as delight and inspiration which will amply repay the careful attention needed to construct the models.

20 Megalithic Measures and Rhythms Sacred Knowledge of the Ancient Britons
MACAULAY, ANNE, LINACRE, VIVIAN T., BATCHELOR, RICHARD A.
0863155545 / 9780863155543 2006 Hardback 
26 photographs and 150 diagrams
The huge stone circles built in the British Isles and northwest France from 6,500 to 3,500 years ago are among civilization's strangest monuments. Ignored or plundered for centuries, they have only in modern times begun to reveal their remarkable complexity. It is now widely acknowledged that these ancient sites were precisely aligned to major celestial events, probably linked to the agricultural calendar of early farming settlements. But the mystery remains as to how the megalithic builders achieved such extraordinary accuracy in their measurement.Inspired by the surveying work of Alexander Thom, Anne Macaulay devoted her life to an investigation of the stone circle sites, seeking out their hidden geometry and deeper cultural significance. In this book, she draws on ideas from geometry and metrology, archaeology and anthropology, history and mythology, astronomy and music. Macaulay concludes that the extraordinary mathematical skills of the British megalithic builders was original and self-contained, but that in turn, the elite of this society became the proto-Greeks, their knowledge flowing to the Eastern Mediterranean.
