According to the author, an occultist-wannabe, the Bible's Psalm 19, studied "in conjunction with comparative texts from neighboring cultures, . . . describes the marriage of the sun to Venus." No matter that Venus is never mentioned in that Psalm! And the Book of Revelation's account of the opening of the seven seals is "in fact a way of talking about the enlivening of the seven [Hindu] chakras." In Eschenbach's Parzifal, a jewel dislodged from Lucifer's crown signals "that humanity would increasingly suffer a loss of vision in the Third Eye, the brow chakra." This is a priori history in which all evidence contrary to one's convictions is ignored. Booth pontificates: we live in "a psychosomatic universe," where we can influence the roll of dice if we wish it hard enough; "all biology is astro-biology." Booth claims for his thesis a list of supporters or acolytes starting in Egypt, India, and Greece and ending with FDR and Francis Crick; there is even a nod toward Lenin. This is as silly a book as ever was. Not recommended.
