Books, Philosophy, Stuart France




Something of the unseen beyond

can be gleaned from consideration

of the human visage.


Once encountered in youth,

the human face never really grows old.


It ages, certainly, yet always retains

the signature of youth which was

present at first sight.


It is possible that this experience

constitutes more than mere sight

and acts like a recognition.


Consciousness, sifting time,

quickly settles into

its own familiarity,

which is eternal.

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.
