it was amazing

Aside from the content, what strikes me about this edition, is the quality of the print, elegant graphics, paper and binding. This volume is in itself an understated classic and feels wonderful to hold and behold (not the case for most other publications I find today.)

Very readable in bite sized chunks, where I have found other books on sacred geometry and number to be a little arcane or inscrutable. This is progressively working it's way from 1st principles to the dynamic poetry of the music of the spheres. I'm currently playing my way through sacred geometry (2nd chapter) but gagging to get ahead into music and cosmology, having to hold my horses to savour the journey and deepen comprehension...

Life affirming and awe inspiring.
