Channeling Some very interesting comments from our Bangkok Wizard.

Steiner Some quotes from Rudolf Steiner that indicate he really did have the Reciprocality concepts - and that Reciprocality expresses the mystical truths Steiner understood.

Psychonaut Some comments on the Psychonaut website, which describes experiences very reminiscent of the fourth state of consciousness.



Adams, Scott

The Dilbert Future

ISBN 0-7522-1118-8

Very funny and perceptive. A lot of nonsense is talked about Adams. Some say that he has failed to champion the cause of cubicle dwellers. As far as I know, he has never claimed to be the cubicle dwellers' champion - just a very funny cartoonist. Others say that he is a terrible, cynical person. This is because he documents workplace stupidity with staggering accuracy. All of the pomposity, dishonesty, bullying and ritualism is there. The end section of this book, about affirmations etc. should make your hair stand on end.

As far as I can see, this is where the mystical types start to get worth reading. Blavatsky (and the loathesome Crowley) are below this line, Steiner and Gurdjieff are above it. She describes a telepathy that works by convergence to objective reality, and deep structure perception.

Bennett, John G.

Gurdjieff: Making A New World

Turnstone Press
ISBN 0-85500-067-8

A student of Gurdjieff's for 30 years, this work is interesting because with Reciprocality in mind, it is easy to see where Bennett is making it up to fill in the blanks.

Gurdjieff, G.

All and Everything or Beelzebub's Tales to his Grandson

Routledge & Kegan Paul
ISBN 0-7100-1479-1

Very hard to read due to a construction that forces the reader to stay awake. Once you have them in mind, clearly contains the ideas contained in Reciprocality.

Laing, R. D.

The Politics of Experience and the Bird of Paradise


Laing's description of humanity in the grip of M0.

McDermott, Robert A. (ed)

The Essential Steiner

Floris Books
ISBN 0-86315-225-2

Reciprocality again. He wrote for a gas-bag audience, and it shows.

Ouspensky, P. D.

In Search of the Miraculous

Routledge & Kegan Paul
ISBN 0-7100-4635-X

I think the system of hydrogens is about multi-fractals. If anyone cracks the mystery, do let me know! Much on M0 and freeing one's self from it.

Ouspensky, P. D.

The Strange Life of Ivan Ossokin

Ouspensky's erotic science fiction novel. Honestly! Contains a "block universe" model of time.

Shah, Idries

The Sufis

W. H. Allen

Reciprocality as ancient teaching. There's little doubt these people all thought Reciprocality describes the universe, the place of consciousness, and the current state of humanity.

Teilhard de Chardin, Pierre

The Phenomenon of Man


Evolving structure will co-adunate and reach an Omega Point.

Thorne, Kip S.

Black Holes and Time Warps: Einstein's Outrageous Legacy

ISBN 0-333-63969-3

Predeterminism (but not necessarily determinism) in GR, how Penrose thought round the Ghost Not and applied global methods to black hole entropy, how Einstein turned up at his local physics group with another theory of Relativity every Wednesday for a month before they stopped iterating.

White, Michael

Isaac Newton - The Last Sorcerer

Fourth Estate
ISBN 1-85702-416-8

White doesn't seem to understand that alchemy is a transformation of the operator - mapping - but his journalism is excellent so you can draw your own conclusions from his data.
