TUXEDO PARK, N.Y. (PRWEB) February 18, 2015
William Wadsworth had a burning desire to personalize years of academic research by communicating what he really think about traditional cosmology, a field of study and series of cosmic images that he finds very meaningful. “Heaven, Earth, & Humankind,” (published by Xlibris) is his attempt to reconnect civilization to the three cycles of light that may be seen as root causes of order and civilization. Using ancient texts on how the daily, monthly and annual cycles of light affect human experience, he explores amazing series of images from traditional cosmology and medicine that is made understandable through commentary.
Volume I introduces how traditional wise men used geometry to understand yin and yang and the three cycles of yin and yang. He shows how this applies to the interpretation of astrological charts first by showing how it changes one’s understanding of the influence of planets and second by showing the importance of the daily cycle and time of day in the interpretation of a birth chart. Later volumes treat the influence of the lunation cycle and the seasonal cycle in greater detail.
“With greater historical and academic depth, this book makes traditional wisdom understandable. It does not require a lot of reading to get to the point. It represents a counterforce to all forms of linear and extroverted thinking, and offers a way to end addiction and delusion to find equilibrium by following nature,” says the author.
“Heaven, Earth, & Humankind” is an enlightening read. It will help people identify their own place and function in the cosmos.
