I don't see a lot of the fractal correspondences that Eglash points out, but then there is a lot of math in this book that I don't understand. There are some absolutely fantastic references to studies I have never heard of and holy shit did I not know how old african divination is. This book definitely goes in my reference pile for use if I ever get around to writing a research paper for my masters on the diffusion of the magic of ancient egypt to the modern world. Maybe if I was better at math it would get 5 stars, if any of my math friends are paying attention, please read this and get back to me.
