5.0 out of 5 stars This has to be one of his best works... 31 July 2001
By Ryan Morrison - Published on Amazon.com
Although this essay from a much younger Rene Schwaller, it none-the-less provides hours of contemplation on the metaphysical meaning of numbers. His ideas on numbers as they relate to cycles of (on-going)creation are rooted in a scientific background. He even goes so far as to demonstrate his ideas in a practical example of salt-crystal formation. If it weren't for the content involved, the book could be read in one evening as it is a slim volume. However, it IS philosophical and not casual reading by any stretch of the imagination. A book for anyone interested in the metaphysical side of numbers, sacred architecture, numerology and even the aspects of the Tarot may be better understood from this essay.
As noted by the translators, one of whom is Robert Lawlor, Schwaller left emphatic instructions about how this work was to republished in accordance with his later studies on the Egyptian mysteries. Without going into great detail this book should probably be read after at least reading The Temple of Man by Schwaller.
The Theology of Arithmetic by Iamblichus, Robin Waterfield (trans.) provides an excellent foundation to the Study of Numbers by Schwaller. Actually this text or one like it might've been Schwaller's inspiration in this study.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bolt of lightning 30 Jun 2008
By Dionysus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a book that can be read in one day - but the seeds will cultivate in your mind for decades. In our age, it would be unthinkable to concider deities demonstrated through numbers and equations. Yet even the most ardent Bible reader must admit that there is no escaping them. Especially in our Christian legacy. Unfortantly, very few people show interest in learning about the spiritual dimension of numbers. Even though nature express harmony through mathematical proportions and archetypes.

I'm not suggesting that this book will enlighten you on the Bible. Just that author was of a far higher caliber than we are used to dealing with. He focuses on the task at hand: how numbers determine hamonic relationships, and how the Egyptians and Greeks used this knowledge to infuse harmonic principles into the objects they made.

I gave the book four stars because the author express himself exclusively in right-brain "mode of thought", and some people will not be able to endure that for more than a few pages. But for those that do, it quickly becomes a classic.

A book that will facinate you for a lifetime.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book For Serious Esoteric Students! 15 Jun 2007
By Noble Sir - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Frater Lubicz was a student of the "Hard School" of esoteric thought. In "A Study of Numbers", he continues his very unique style of linking everything to early Egyptian Metaphysics which he mastered in conveying to students during his lifetime. This time the subject matter is numbers and the entire book is based on the singular, novel, and facinating idea that manifestation in reality begins not with the "ONE", but with the "TRIUNE". Such a revelation should immediately appeal to Masonic and Rosicrucian students WHO KNOW THE LAW OF THE TRIANGLE from their respective studies and reveals the esoteric nature of Christendom. This book should be required reading for all serious esoteric students!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't wonder any longer 14 Sep 2007
By M. Burguan - Published on Amazon.com
If you are even wondering if you should buy this to read...stop. Don't think at all - until after you buy it and begin to absorb its amazing depth and breadth.

You will begin to understand the world as you watch it before you from an entirely fresh perspective.

Then, read the rest of his works and you will have a very high level of teachings bestowed from much secret instituional knowledge.

Will you leave it at knowledge or turn it into wisdom?

Light to the student of life...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant beyond comparison 21 Aug 2010
By inspired reader - Published on Amazon.com
In short, this book is brilliant beyond comparison: succinct in style, dense per content, fascinating in general. It gives the outline and brief explication of a theory of all things, described in terms of numbers.

It starts with the abstract and concrete basis of numbers and then goes on to identify cycles in their unfolding. Not a single word is redundant here, as usual in Schwaller's work; it cannot be comprehended without deep contemplation, and to be quite clear here, I didn't know if I ever would comprehend it upon first reading, but somehow somewhere sometime it starts a boomerang-like learning process - it messes with your head - until you are, let's face it, addicted.
