  • We lack direct consciousness of Space and Time We can know of them only indirectly by mass, force, and energy, and by the intermediary of phenomena such as may be tested by our five senses Without direct awareness of Space or Time, human beings lack two senses necessary for the knowledge of all causes From this imperfection, of which we are always being made aware, isWe lack direct consciousness of Space and Time We can know of them only indirectly by mass, force, and energy, and by the intermediary of phenomena such as may be tested by our five senses Without direct awareness of Space or Time, human beings lack two senses necessary for the knowledge of all causes From this imperfection, of which we are always being made aware, is born our need to simplify Thus we reduce everything to fundamental properties, without paying any attention to the underlying universal organization, the effects of which are all around us The result is that the science of numbers, the most wonderful guide to the constant creation of the universe, remains an enormous hypothesis so long as its use has not awakened in us the higher consciousness of a universal order By deepened knowledge of things and their process of becoming, we must come to recognize Numbers as a truth, and to experience with our senses the living relation of a cause to an effect, this relation being truer and real than the effect could ever be Published in 1917 under the author s given name of Ren Schwaller, A Study of Numbers is the first expression of the teachings we have come to associate with his later and better known name, R.A Schwaller de Lubicz It is a masterly account of the living, universal, qualitative, and casual reality of numbers Starting from the irreducible one, Schwaller deals with the unfolding of creation through the cycles of polarization, ideation, and formation Topics covered include numbers, values, and relations the disengagement of numbers the harmonic basis of numbers the development of values and the establishment of harmony.

    1. Honestly, i'll have to come back to this book again. It's so short but so condensed with information in just a few words. I often have to reread the same thing 3x- and then take a nap after a page to let it absorb. I love the general direction of the book and like how it tries to philosophize the study of numbers not just as a woo-woo spiritual thing, but as a real way of examining the world. I loved the forward in the book- how it touches on "science" as a common day myth- how it states that th [...]

    2. a fascinating and fun read about the possible meaning of numbers, based on ancient egyptian ideology. for me, each page is like a clever riddle. i have read and reread some parts of it to discover new implications each time. schwaller de lubicz is one of my favorite eccentric reads. he's often quoted by scholars while being disowned. a strange fellow and strange reading--which means, some of my favorite stuff.

    3. The author is a great master in this subject. The book was ok. It was short. I think other books are better honestly. It's a good way to get a sample of the author's works. The Temple of Man is his magnum opus (IMO), but nearly impossible to digest. I have a that too, but it's very expensive. I recall paying $175 or more for the set.

    4. This book has had a strong influence on my life. I have read it several times and I am in the process of re-reading it. I find that it effects me in a different way every time. Even though it's short, it can't really be read in one sitting unless you're already familiar with the concepts. It will change the way you look at numbers.
