I found as Schwaller De Lubicz by reading the bibliography of works by Graham Hancock and others. This is true esoteric knowledge here, and in my opinion De Lubicz is light years ahead of everyone else as far as understanding Egyptian mythology, religion, and culture. This work is an "entry level" into De Lubicz's work, simply wetting your taste for more. As you read this, you will feel your brain being stretched and pulled into a different configuration, as the knowledge within operates on many ...more

Mind-boggling 12 year research of the Luxor temple by one fanatical enthusiast shows that this temple, and ancient Egyptian architecture in general was not arbitrary as the modernists would have us believe. There was a clear purpose for the position, the supposed irregularities (which the uninitiated mistake for clumsiness!) and virtually every stone and drawing found in these sacred places reveals hidden wisdom.

The Luxor temple is a giant book of human anatomy, showing all the parts of the bod

Un riassunto del famoso ed enciclopedico libro Il Tempio dell'Uomo sempre di R.A. Schwaller De Lubicz. Ovviamente per la brevità dell'opera, molti dei concetti sono stati solamente accennati e si è cercato di fare trasparire nel modo più sintetizzato possibile il messaggio che voleva trasmettere l'autore.

I concetti fondamentali ripresi sono:

Noi dobbiamo, una volte er tutte, concepire il tempio faraonico come un seme che ha in gestazione il proprio frutto. Per loro la costruzione deve vivere, He

There aren't words for this book. I had the joy of taking it to Luxor and walking through all of SdL's insights. A must for anyone into esoteric Egypt -- who is looking beyond and beneath the beautifully painted facades of this culture.

Great information. Unfortunately I am too stupid to understand some of the information.

Quite hard to read in places (the math places mostly) but overall very interesting. It was weakest where it left math and surveying and went into mystical of the style of turn of the century spiritualists.

There is much to learn from the ancients -- in many ways they (especially the architects of Luxor) were ahead of us in understanding of the spiritual nature of man and the secrets of the brain. The temple of Luxor is a an architectual puzzle meant to convey wonders of the human body and brain.

reading this in tandem with De Lubicz's Sacred Science. Both convey a world view that is hermetic. Has whet my appetite to read his Temple of Man.

In books like Esotericism and Symbol, The Temple in Man, Symbol and the Symbolic, The Egyptian Miracle, and the monumental The Temple of Man--whose long awaited English translation has finally appeared--Schwaller de Lubicz argued, among other things, that Egyptian civilization is ...more
