“… As above, so below…”
Hermes Trismegistus, The Emerald Tablet
Rodney Collin explores in this text, man’s ‘relation to the universe’ as experienced by a ‘different kind of mind, in a different state of consciousness.’ Influenced by P.D. Ouspensky and G.I. Gurdjieff, promulgators of the esoteric doctrine the Fourth Way, Collin examines how modern scientific discoveries in diverse fields such as physics, human physiology, chemistry and astronomy can be united and reconciled with traditional esoteric teachings. The way we see ourselves and our place in the universe can only be realized ‘by a mind which had itself become unified;’ harmonizing the conflict between our rational and imaginative minds.
