Description

If a person does not learn the grammar of a language, the best dictionary in the world cannot help him truly understand that language, much less speak it. This book explores the grammar as well as the principles and structures of symbology, the science of symbols. In distinction to symbolism, which explores the use of symbols, symbology examines the primal force that creates symbols that are able to act on multiple levels of our experience. Symbols not only link separate parts into a coherent whole but, also, link those who understand them in a sacred alliance. Rene Alleau investigates diverse aspects of symbols in Eastern and Western philosophies as well as in African, Native American and Australian cultures, both in ancient and modern times. Myth, he reveals, has been mistakenly identified by modern culture as fiction, when its true strength lies in the logic of analogy. The author then shows that nothing is closer to the language of symbols than music and that to enter the world of symbols is the attempt to grasp harmonic vibrations and learn the music of the universe. Just as there is a musical ear, there is, also, one sensitive to the primal force transmitted by symbol. . Examines the role of symbol in a wide array of Eastern and Western sources . Reveals how symbols form a language akin to music that allows one to grasp the universal order
