This is an initiation into the tone, structure, and mentality of Egyptian knowledge, the basis of all Western theology and science.  It is a redefinition of those concepts which are basic to the pharaonic transmission--the glory of ancient Egypt.  The author explores the "process of becoming" as related to consciousness and revealed in nature; the kinship between man and ...more

“we were appealing to another power in us which comes from our innate consciousness, the source of the sense of harmony. If it is effective, this power will be the reason for genius, for creative thought, creative in the sense that it works ahead of the known, the classified. Isn’t it this consciousness of a new way, dictated to today’s decadent world, which impels artists to destroy the idols of yesterday in order to attempt irrational expressions? They seek a concordance of the elements of “sensations,” ignoring the rational combinations which only satisfy the inertia of acquired habit. Atmospheres, images, and forms are created to evoke a feeling, an emotion, to provoke a vital reaction. Art is the herald of the mentality of a period, the harbinger of its innermost tendency.” 2 likes
