The Mystery of the Seven Vowels: In Theory and Practice
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
The seven vowels which we use every day in speech depend on the phenomenon of harmonics which is at the very basis of music. When we hear vowels we are hearing the laws of harmony which are ultimately the laws of number that are said to govern the universe. This is the first book on the subject to appear in English and brings together the fields of linguistics harmony, mythology, history of religions, and occult philosophy. Scholarly, yet practical, this book gives instructions for discovering one's own healing, centering, and uplifting tones.
such research, and the different levels on which it may be conducted: I would have it noted that the vowels have also their corresponding colours perceptible to the psychic. These are as follows: Colours: Vowels: violet a red o yellow e blue u indigo ee green orange 00 And yet, here again we find that the trained psychic differs from those who associate, by an elementary form of clairvoyance much tainted by imagination, colours and the vowels of the English alphabet.

But no one could deny that aleph and iod, at the very least, are vowels. Fabre d'Olivet, who learned his Hebrew from an Egyptian colleague, Elias Boctor, came to the conclusion that the consonantal nature of the Hebrew alphabet was a

Athanasius Kircher took Pico's work considerably further in his Oedipus Aegyptiacus of 1650, although since he was a Jesuit and all his work carried the imprimatur of the Catholic Church, he trod very carefully whenever he approached the holy ground of Christianity. In the age of Enlightenment, with the waning of sacerdotal censorship, the objective study of comparative religion at last became feasible in a few countries, notably France. Charles Dupuis (1742-1809), in his
being consciously aware of its acoustical cause. Likewise, in hearing vowels, one's ear is actually registering harmonics, of whose existence most people are altogether unconscious. It used to be thought that the parallel between instrumental timbre and vowels could be taken further, namely that similar to an instrument, each vowel had a characteristic arrangement of harmonics, no matter what pitch it was sung on. Thus perhaps hoot is always fluty, heat always stringlike in tone. The debate
Probably the grammarian Servius had such rites in mind when, commenting on the phrase of Virgil "Voce vocans Hecaten" (Aeneid VI, 249L he interpreted it as: "Invoking Hecate not by words but by mystic sounds.// Digging deeper into the psychogonic and cosmogonic mystery, we turn again to the Gnostic Marcus: When first the Father, the not even the One, beyond all possibility of thought and being, who is neither male nor female, willed that His ineffability should come into being, and His
