Functions in Time…

*

The effects of the past

on the present can be recognised

in the unconscious persistence

of our earliest psychological impressions.

*

And if the future enters into us

long before it happens, as is sometimes

supposed, then it too must also be in part present.

*

The past is not a dead thing fit only to be shunned,

nor the future an empty void awaiting fulfilment.

*

The past and present contain consequences

which both reflect and project.

*

And if the event in time be circular,

rather than linear, then we can

also add the future to this equation.

NUANCES OF NICOLL

The Keys to Heaven

Stuart France

Available via Amazon

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!
