Dear readers of this site:

Dear Reader:
Who likes to know more about the work and doctrine of G.Gurdjieff (The Fourth Way) i recommand:


The Book of P.D. Ouspensky: 'In search of the Miraculous, Fragments of an Unknown Teaching'.

It's a tecnical work about the logistics behind the Teaching of George Gurdjieff (who's 'masterpiece' was the book: "BeŽlzebubs tales to his Grandson - About the Human Race".

It is rather heavy but really 'magic' literature.

Greetings, Sil

P. D. OUSPENSKY
THE FOURTH
WAY
A RECORD OF TALKS AND ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS BASED ON THE TEACHING OF G. I. GURDJIEFF


FOREWORD
WHEN P. D. Ouspensky was asked if he intended to publish his lectures, he answered: 'What is the use? The most important is not the lectures but the questions and answers.'
This book consists of verbatim extracts from talks and answers to questions given by Ouspensky between 1921 and 1946. Chapter I is a general survey of the fundamental ideas, which in subsequent chapters are amplified subject by subject in the specific order followed by Ouspensky himself.
To achieve this order some of the material has had to be taken out of its chronological sequence; but in no case has there been any alteration of phrasing or meaning.

TERTIUM ORGANUM
THE THIRD CANON OF THOUGHT
A KEY TO THE ENIGMAS OF THE WORLD
by P.D. Ouspensky
[1922]

This is P.D. Ouspensky's Tertium Organum (http://www.wendag.com/tertiumo/index.htm), which he believed was the third major philosophical synthesis, the previous being those of Aristotle and Bacon. Originally issued in Russian in 1912, this is the second, revised edition. It was translated into English and published in 1922.

Ouspensky (1878-1947) was a mystic who traveled widely in Europe and the East looking for esoteric knowledge. He later studied with G.I. Gurdjieff. In this book, he uses the concept of the fourth dimension as an extended metaphor for the esoteric nature of reality. Einstein and other physicists had at that time validated the study of higher dimensions, and Ouspensky was fixated on this idea. One can only wonder at what he would think of string theory, parallel universes, and the holographic universe hypothesis (the latter of which he prefigures in this book).
