The Return of Sacred Architecture:
The Golden Ratio and the End of Modernism
By Herbert Bangs

The ugly buildings that characterize the modern landscape are inferior not only to the great cathedrals of medieval Europe and the temples of ancient Egypt and Greece, but even to lesser buildings of the more recent past. The great masterworks of our ancestors spoke to humanity's higher nature. Architect Herbert Bangs reveals how today's dysfunctional buildings bring out the worst in humanity, reinforcing that which is most base within us. He shows how, through the ancient laws of proportion and number, architecture once expressed the harmonious relationship between man and the cosmos. In early times, the architect worked within a sacred and esoteric tradition of creating structures through which human beings could gain insight into the nature of the divine reality. Today, that tradition has been abandoned in favor of narrowly defined utilitarian principles of efficiency and economy. In The Return of Sacred Architecture, Bangs provides the key to freeing architecture from the crude functionality of the twentieth century: the architects of the modern human landscape must find the deep-felt connection to the cosmos that guided the inner lives of those who built the temples of the past. The form of their buildings will then reflect the sacred patterns of geometry and proportion and bring forth greater harmony in the world.

First Hand:
The Geometry of Genesis and the Alphabet
By Richard Heath

Based on ancient concepts, this breakthrough research reveals the sacredness of the Hebrew alphabet. While investigating geometric patterns in the Hebrew text of Genesis, Stan Tenen discovered universal meanings that could be ascribed to the individual letters of the alphabet, as relating to personal consciousness. First Hand models the projection of conscious will in the form of an idealized human hand, with the letters formed in sign language, and proposes a geometric metaphor, rooted in the sacred alphabet, that promotes unity and peace among people of all faiths. This is a complex work that incorporates geometry, mathematics, physics, cosmology, spirituality, self-awareness, meditation, and language.

Matrix of Creation:
Sacred Geometry in the Realm of the Planets
By Richard Heath

Reveals the ancient mathematical principles refuting the notion of the solar system as an accidental creation. - Reveals how ancient civilizations encoded their secret knowledge of the sky in mythology, music, and sacred measures. - Shows how modern culture can benefit from the ancient astronomical and astrological worldview based on number. - Shows the role of ratio and harmonic proportions in the creation of the material world. Humanity's understanding of number was deeper and richer when the concept of creation was rooted in direct experience. But modern sensibility favors knowledge based exclusively on physical laws. We have forgotten what our ancestors once knew: that numbers and their properties create the forms of the world. Ancient units of measurement held within them the secrets of cosmic proportion and alignment that are hidden by the arbitrary decimal units of modern mathematical thinking. Sacred numbers arose from ancient man's observations of the heavens. Just as base ten numbers relate to the fingers and toes in terms of counting, each celestial period divides into the others like fingers revealing the base numbers of planetary creation. This ancient system made the art of counting a sacramental art, its units being given spiritual meanings beyond just measurement. The imperial yard, for example, retains a direct relationship to the Equator, the length of a day and a year, and the angular values of Earth, Moon, and Jupiter. The ancients encoded their secret knowledge of the skies within mythology, music, monuments, and units of sacred measurement. They understood that the ripeness of the natural world is the perfection of ratio and realized that the planetary environment--and time itself--was a creation of number.

Sacred Architecture
By A.T. Mann

Worshiped for over three-fifths of recorded history, ancient Egypt's gods and goddesses are among the most fascinating of human civilization. From lavish tomb paintings and imposing temple reliefs to humble household shrines, countless tributes throughout Egypt reflect the richness and complexity of their mythology. This book examines the evolution, worship, and eventual decline of the numerous gods and goddesses from minor household figures such as Bes and Taweret to the all-powerful deities Amun and Ra- that made Egypt the most completely theocratic society of the ancient world, and made Egyptians, according to Herodotus, "more religious than any other people." With hundreds of illustrations, this is a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the deities that lay at the heart of Egyptian religion and society.

Mathematical Mysteries:
The Beauty and Magic of Numbers
By Calvin C. Clawson

Why seemingly unrelated mathematical truths are connected in simple and beautiful equations continues to stump even mathematicians. This recreational math book takes the reader on a fantastic voyage into the world of natural numbers. From the earliest discoveries of the ancient Greeks to various fundamental characteristics of the natural number sequence, Clawson explains fascinating mathematical mysteries in clear and easy prose. He delves into the heart of number theory to see and understand the exquisite relationships among natural numbers, and ends by exploring the ultimate mystery of mathematics: the Riemann hypothesis, which says that through a point in a plane, no line can be drawn parallel to a given line. While a professional mathematician's treatment of number theory involves the most sophisticated analytical tools, its basic ideas are surprisingly easy to comprehend. By concentrating on the meaning behind various equations and proofs and avoiding technical refinements, Mathematical Mysteries lets the common reader catch a glimpse of this wonderful and exotic world.

The New View over Atlantis
By John F. Michell

John Michell's unrivaled introduction to megalithic science, earth mysteries, and the inner meaning of number and measure, was described by Colin Wilson as "one of the great seminal books of our generation- a book which will be argued about for decades to come." Across much of the globe are ancient earthworks and stone monuments built for an unknown purpose. Their shared features suggest that they were originally part of a worldwide system, and John Michell argues that they served the elemental science of the archaic civilization that Plato referred to as Atlantis. In this connection the most significant modern discovery is that of "leys," the mysterious network of straight lines that link the ancient places of Britain and have their counterparts in China, Australia, South America, and elsewhere. John Michell's studies of ancient measures have enabled him to define their exact values. The same units recur in the dimensions of monuments all over the world, from Stonehenge to Teotihuacán, and reveal the builders' knowledge of the size and shape of the spheroidal earth, and with it the outlines of their cosmology. 82 b/w illustrations.

Sacred Geometry Oracle Deck
By Francene Hart

Sacred geometry is the key that unlocks all of the world's art, science, and architecture. Called the language of light, its images and shapes are embedded in DNA, mandalas, pyramids, crystals, atoms, and hieroglyphs. Anyone who has ever gazed at a spider's web, meditated on a mandala or yantra, visited a pyramid, walked a labyrinth, or peered through a microscope has felt the effects of sacred geometry. Now the Sacred Geometry Oracle Deck introduces an entirely new way for you to gain access to this wisdom and unlock its power. With splendid use of the full color spectrum and gentle natural forms, artist Francine Hart has created potent, compelling images accessible to both advanced and novice students of divination. The accompanying text includes a detailed interpretation of each card, sample spreads, and an excellent introduction to the science of sacred geometry. Working with these images balances human energy fields, allowing readers to access higher levels of consciousness, gain insight into life's challenges, and restore their connection to the world.

Through the Labyrinth:
Designs and Meanings over 5,000 Years
By Hermann Kern

Labyrinths and mazes are found all over the world, and have been a source of intrigue and wonder throughout history. This richly illustrated and carefully documented work explores the manifold aspects of labyrinths - from their architectural, astrological, and mythological significance, to their iconographical, mathematical, amd artistic fascination, while also examining their socio-historical context. A museum curator, Hermann Kern spent six years researching labyrinths for an exhibition in Italy in 1980. He then expanded that information and assembled the most complete compendium of labyrinth information ever assembled, from history to the modern era. Published by Prestel, a company in Munich, Germany, that specializes in art books, this compendium was available only in German until the current English edition, which took three years to translate and update. New material has been added to cover discoveries and contemporary labyrinths of the last 20 years, making this the most complete presentation of labyrinth information anywhere.
