“A first phrase is always a first phrase: it begins. And in these poetic theorems, each theorem is always a first phrase. And the beginning, any beginning, always has additional force: it's always at the inception of a process where the greatest quantity of a substance is concentrated.” —Gonçalo Tavares, author of Jerusalem
“Landing between prose and poetry, science and art, philosophy and spirituality, The Hidden Third charismatically disseminates a new renaissance transmission, one highly pertinent for contemporary times. Leaving the reader breathless, re-imagined, re-generated. Mind duly sanctified.” “ —Gary P. Hampson, co-creator of The University for the Future
“We could ask Basarab Nicolescu about the last constituents of matter or language, since language is according to him a truly quantum phenomena. Nicolescu also takes a step further by introducing the logic of the third secretly included in the classical Aristotelian logic, which plays the role of a living symbol that unites contradictions, by embracing and fusing them.” —Michel Camus, writer and member of the International Center for Interdisciplinary Research
