A Notional Realm…


Let us conceive mankind

as a network of events in time.


Let us suppose the present moment

continually cuts a cross-section

through these notional wholes

to shadow-forth our seen world

of merely fragmentary shards.


The unseen beyond

becomes here the containing

body of a vast realm,

only part-glimpsed

for lack of an ordering principle

a key to our dream consciousness.


We need to think beyond time.


We need to wake up from

the nightmare of our reality

and re-enter the dream-time.



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!
