THE SACRED SCIENCE TRANSLATION SOCIETY INTRODUCTION


For many years we have been in possession of a number of important cosmological masterpieces in various languages, which we always dreamed of having translated into English
. The Sacred Science Translation Society began with the inspiration of an anonymous Angel Benefactor, who offered to support the majority of our first project, the translation of Hans Kayser's Textbook of Harmonics. While considering our options to produce the most exact, and highest quality translations possible, we were extremely fortunate to connect with Ariel & Joscelyn Godwin, and to establish an ongoing relationship with them in which Ariel would produce the translations, under the oversight of his father, Joscelyn, one of the most respected scholars and translators of works in these fields. Following the first generous contribution, we were able to recruit a handful of our most serious supporters,
and received further funding from our initial Angel Benefactor, along with a large donation from another Angel, allowing us to continue with the translations of Natural Architecture, by Petrus Talemarianus, and The Law of the Cosmos, by Eberhard Wortmann.

With the completion and release of these initial works, the Sacred Science Translation Society morphed through several experimental stages, attempting to determine the best means to find continued support for further translation projects. The difficulty in finding such support primarily lies in the problem that there are, unfortunately, only a small number of people who seem, at this point, to appreciate and value these complex, technical, esoteric texts. Our current strategy, which has developed over the last few years
, is to use the funds produced by the sale of these initial books, and each progressive translation, to fund each next title on the development list. Initially we tried to develop a subscription format, where members of the Translation Society would purchase each progressive book, at a member discount, as it was released. However, this became difficult, as different members tended to want only specific titles, and not every book in the series, forcing us to alter our strategy. What we have now decided to do, is to simply release every title as it is complete, each at one flat price, and consider anyone who purchases any of the translations as a supporter and Member of the Sacred Science Translation Society. There is no longer any requirement for membership in the society, other than to support it through purchasing only one title, or all, as one so desires. We will then compile the combined funds produced by all of these sales, and continue to dedicate them to the translation of further titles on the development list.

 

We are now in the third year since the creation of the Sacred Science Translation Society and are pleased to announce that we have already completed the translation of the following seven works:

Hans Kayser - Textbook of Harmonics (Released August, 2006)
Petrus Talemarianus - Natural Architecture (Released February, 2008)
Eberhard Wortmann - Law of the Cosmos, The Divine Harmony According to Plato's Republic/Timaeus: The Platonic Riddle of Numbers Newly Solved and Illustrated (Released April, 2008)
Saint-Yves D'Alveydre - The Archeometer: Key To All The Religions & Sciences Of Antiquity (Volume 1, Source Text, Volume 2, The Musical Archeometer, Plus 60 pages of elaboration from the magazine La Gnose 1909-1912, & Including 5 scholarly articles from the last century) (Planned Release, May, 2008)
Hans Kayser - Paestum: The Nomoi of Three Ancient Greek Temples at Paestum (Planned Release, June, 2008)
Hans Kayser - The Harmonic Division Canon (Planned Release, July, 2008)
Hans Kayser - Harmonia Plantarum ((Planned Release, Fall, 2008))
Hans Kayser - Akroasis: The Theory of the World Harmonic ((Planned Release, early 2009))

We expect to have all of these first titles available by the end of 2008. Our publication process begins with the release of each title in our maroon suede, hardcover, print on demand, Translation Society Edition, which we consider a pre-release format, allowing us to make this important material available as soon as the translation is complete. Beginning with this format is necessary due to the complex nature of some of these texts, with their numerous diagrams and technical details, which often need further editing, formatting, and minor corrections. We will then re-release each work in a high-quality, Collector's Edition, once every detail has been perfected and triple checked, with the help of Translation Society Members. All Translation Society Members who purchased an initial Translation Society Edition of any title, will be given the opportunity to upgrade to the new Collector's Edition of that title for a marginal fee to help cover the printing cost of the new quality edition. This allows us to release this important material immediately for those anxious to begin studying it, while also providing them with a beautiful Collector's Edition, at a lesser cost than the final edition will be for those who wait. Sometime after the release of the Collector's Edition, we will then produce a less expensive Student's Edition, probably in a smaller format soft-cover, for those who cannot afford the higher cost of the Collector's Edition.

Our continuing translation plans are to work through the entire series of Hans Kayser's work, another 12 volumes, also to work through Wortmann's complete work, another 3 volumes, probably attempt Von Thimus' monster on Pythagorean Harmonics, consider Francis Warrain's 3 volume work on Kepler, and his 3 volume work on Wronski, and perhaps his work on Charles Henry. Eventually, we would like to translate Robert Fludd's 2 volume masterpiece on music, and explore the works of Athanasius Kircher, Raymond Llull, and Rene Hoenne-Wronski. We will always be open to suggestions of other titles by Translation Society Members, and will continue to search for other interesting works of a similar content and importance. We truly hope that this will allow us to maintain a continuous schedule of translation projects indefinitely, in order to keep Ariel Godwin (with the generous editing contribution of his father Joscelyn Godwin) working on these projects as long as we are able to continue funding them through sales of the completed works. Members of the Sacred Science Translation Society will not only be fortunate in having access to these great masterpieces, but can further feel honored to have contributed to the funding of these projects, thereby being directly responsible for helping to preserve these works for the future of humanity...

I would like to express my warmest and most heartfelt thanks to all those who have and will par
ticipate in helping to support this vision.

 

Sincerely,

William Bradstreet Stewart
Sacred Science Institute

The second title in the Sacred Science Translation Society series. This book is a rare masterpiece of esoteric cosmology, coming from a secret French esoteric school, connecting the work of the cosmologist Rene Hoenne-Wronski, teacher of Eliphas Levi and Balzac, and the work of the French Traditionalist, Rene Guenon. The thesis develops a system of correspondences between the symbolic, geometrical, mathematical and astronomical systems of architecture of the ancient world. Loaded with 100's of diagrams of the most complex cosmological nature, this masterpiece is one of the greatest classics of the esoteric tradition.

This is the 3rd book in the Sacred Science Translation Society series. We are just putting the final touches on it, fixing the layout, and adding some extra color diagrams, but it is almost ready to go. This book is One of the Ten Greatest Cosmological Masterpieces Ever Written! Eberhard Wortmann is the only know modern Magister Ludi to have corresponded with Hermann Hesse, who in appreciation of his brilliant work called him a master "Glass Bead Game Player." The Sacred Science Institute is working in conjunction with Wortmann's family to produce English translation of this Masterpiece. Wortmann's works contain hundreds of the most sophisticated diagrams on Sacred Geometry, Pythagorean and Platonic Number Theory, Harmonics and Astronomy ever seen, as well as one of the most intricate elaborations of Universal Order and Cosmic Law known to man. The vast and synthetic thinking process presented in these works inspired a correspondence between Hesse and Wortmann discussing the GBG. "Here it should be mentioned that the Platonic riddle of numbers are actually a question of logical games of thought, "Glass Bead Games", as Hermann Hesse, the great writer and man, had named this kind of mental business."

ARCHEOMETER

This fourth translation in our series represents one of the most highly respected elaborations of the universal system, by one of the most respected esotericists of the 19th century. Our volume will include the technical source text, along with a further 70 page elaboration and description by another of St. Yves associates published in the French magazine La Gnose from 1909-1912. It will also include another half dozen scholarly articles published throughout the last century on St. Yves and his work.

What is the Archeometer? The Archeometer is the instrument used by the Ancients for the formation of the esoteric myths of all religions. It is the canon of ancient Art in its various architectural, musical, poetic, and theogonic manifestations. It is the Heaven that speaks: every star, every constellation becomes a letter or a phrase, or a divine name lighting the ancient traditions of all peoples with a new day. Saint-Yves applied Archeometric keys to a new translation of the Genesis of Moses, in a work that is sadly little known: The Theogony of the Patriarchs. Together with the Vulgate, Fabre d’Olivet’s translation, and other earlier attempts, this new adaptation of the words of Moses in Saint-Yves’s rhythmic prose is of greatest interest to the members of all the Churches of Christianity, pastoral or secular. Over time, Saint-Yves, initiated directly by the Hindu Brahmans, wrote his Mission of India, in which the question of the “Mahatma” is resolved definitively and clearly. His “friends” have reverently reprinted this work, of which all but one example had been destroyed. Thus, here is a subject of study for future critics, or rather, many subjects, and we do not know what posterity will find most striking: the author’s immense erudition, his style as personal as it is brilliant, or the exalted revelations of the initiate and historian. Dr. G. Encausse, aka “Papus”
