Meet the Author

R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz (1887-1961) was one of the most important philosophers, mathematicians, and Egyptologists of this century. His elucidation of the temple at Luxor and his presentation of the Egyptian understanding of a special quality of innate consciousness form a bridge that links the sacred science of the Ancients to its rediscovery in our own time.

Table of Contents

1 Esoterism has no common measure with deliberate concealment of truth.

2 There is in man a cerebral intelligence and also an innate intelligence.

3 Cerebral intelligence depends upon the the recording of observed facts.

4 Intelligence—of—the—heart is purely a function of experienced innate consciousness.

5 Fundamentally, consciousness has two aspects: one is the result of comparisons, the other of identification.

6 Everything that lives, moves.

7 Appearance is the dualization of a single principle and defines nature, or living spirit.

8 Becoming, or formation of substance into matter, is the mystery of reflection.

9 When classifying becoming into kingdoms, genesis is time, matter or formed substance is space.

10 There are two possible functions of logic, one cerebral or mechanical, the other vital.

11 The definition of anything whatsoever in the natural or physical universe is innate consciousness.

12 The disaggregation of any being can affect its quantity through analysis or "mechanical logic."

13 Innate consciousness is inscribed in matter and is subject to all its transformations.

14 The faculty of "hearing" instinct and translating it in the brain is intuition.

15 Rational universe and metaphysical universe do not exist as essentially different entities.

16 Everything in the universe represents one of the possibilities immanent in the Source or Word.

17 The symbol is a conventional representation. The hieroglyph is direct, nonconventional writing.

18 The Kabbalah, as revelation of the esoteric meaning of the Testament of Moses, has given rise to a very false notion of' esoterism.

19 Esoterism is not a particular meaning hidden in a text, but a state of fusion.
