Once in every lifetime…


We do not think about time,

except in terms of its measurement.


Never as a dimension.


Yet every object extends in time

as well as space.


Sometimes it is here,

or there,

sometimes it is not.


The three dimensions of space

can be seen – objectively.


The dimension of time cannot.


Bodies in time and space

trace unseen lines of motion.



The Keys to Heaven

Stuart France

Psychologist, Maurice Nicoll studied under Fourth Way exponents G.I Gurdjieff and  P.D. Ouspensky, and presented his own philosophy in a series of works published during the Mid Twentieth Century.

In his seminal work, Living Time… he makes no bones about insisting that the psychological states and concepts that he is expounding, and their utilisation, are ancient and stretch back through Christianity, Judaism, the Greek Philosophers and on into the mysterious climes of Pre-Dynastic Egypt…

In re-presenting these ideas as a series of poetic explorations, author and essayist, Stuart France uncovers a series of links with the Mediaeval Traditions of the Northmen, and the Matter of Britain!

What is the original story of our week? How does the moon harrow hell? Prepare to be enthralled, entertained, educated, and enlightened, as new light is shed on the enigmatic figures of Wotan, Merlin, and King Arthur.

They do not write books like this anymore, if indeed they ever did!

  1. Every time Sue Vincent re-blogs anything from this page and I therefore visit this page for the whole piece. I am having to re-follow every time – I’m following again now – but this keeps happening, it’s quite bizarre?!?


  2. Oh, this is what happens when reading backwards. I see you already mentioned this in an earlier post (this one). Maybe I should go all the way to the back and read forward. I think this may be a new dimension – going backward!!! Don’t mind my silliness – I am way beyond tired and confused with too much in my head. There should be some sort of body part that handles dumping the overloads.
