Deeply Thought Provoking 24 Jan 2010
By David Cheramie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Mr. Lubicz has done everyone a great service by giving us this slim book. Now, I am not an expert on symbolic thought or symbols but this book has shown me a new way of looking at Egyptian Symbols, like just simply looking at the symbols themselves and what they might mean and what they bring to mind.

I have never seen so much information packed into such a small space (the book is only 94 pages long) but, it delivers so much for you to think about. The chapters "Symbolic Modes","The Principle of the Present Moment","The Discontinuous Object in the Continuous Present" and "The Symbol as Expression of a Will" or excellent and real eye openers. You may have to read them a few times but it is well worth the time and effort.

It not only gives you a better understanding of Egyptian symbols but symbols in general, no matter what they are.

I recommend this work to everyone no matter what your field of study may be.

Ancient Symbols 29 May 2007
By Letitia Gerber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Anyone searching for esoteric knowledge re our past as it pertains to our present and our future, should definitely read this book.

Schwaller de Lubicz spent many years on-site researching this information and it shows in all of his books.

This is speculation, but still a good read! 18 Dec 2012
By C. Hintz - Published on Amazon.com

de Lubicz was highly recommended by a scholarly friend of mine. He was not a main stream Academic in Egyptology at the time and he wrote for the popular audience in an authoritative and entertaining way.

Like anything you consume, take it with a grain of salt. But in time, I will buy more - perhaps all - of his books and booklets.

Try a used book the first time around and see what you think.

What if he is right? 18 Jan 2013
By peter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What does that mean to you? What if you are an egyptologist and you, after reading this, you realize you know nothing of Egypt?
Well you don't have to be an egyptologist to see it! Any intelligent person can see he is right.
Scientists have a tendency to look back things of the past as silly stupid primitive or ignorant. but really we are the ignorant ones.
And yes the egyptians were not some primitive morons scared of shadows and death prone to animism but were 500 times more , no 1,000 more advanced than modern scientists assume they were. and i don't mean materialistically advanced that means very little.
The author proves that egypt had advanced spiritual and a advanced phycological outlook as well.
Although alchemy and the hermetical texts said much of this in the middle ages but the author puts it in a easy to digest format
