The Spirals of Growth and Decay, Exposing the Underlying Structure of the Markets. By Daniel T. Ferrera 2005.
Utilizing deep concepts from nonlinear mathematics to mechanically describe the structure of price waves in financial market data, linking the ideas of shock, balance, instability, static and dynamic form in all trading markets.
Rudolf Steiner, founder of the Waldorf Schools, developed Anthroposophy, a science based on psychic perception of hidden elements in nature and reality.
Olive Whicher and George Adams extended projective geometry into a study of spiritual to material spaces.
Students of Gann find invaluable insights into Steiner's system, as taught by Dr. Baumring.
Celestial Mechanics deals particularly with the motion of celestial bodies, especially the solar system, but also wider regions of cosmic space.
The subject explores the relationships and processes of heavenly bodies, examining cycles of time, motions of celestial bodies, and the influences between cosmic and local forces.
A branch of Chaos Theory, fractals are beautiful self-similar patterns mathematically generated from non-linear equations.
Fractals apply directly to financial market phenomena, and time-periodic market charts show that similar patterns permeate each time level.
Gann and Baumring saw common patterns foreshadowing coming events within consistent structure.
We may be indebted to Ancient Greece, but Greek knowledge derived from Ancient Egypt, and Hermes Trismegistus, the Thrice Great Hermes is the Greek name of Thoth, the Egyptian God of Knowledge.
Hermetic teachings were first translated into Western languages by Ficino at the dawn of the Renaissance, forming the inspiration for modern esotericism.
There is a long tradition of the use of instruments to read subtle energy forces in nature, through the use of subtle measuring devices like dowsing rods and pendulums.
The Jesuits were famous for finding water sources, showing advanced knowledge of using these techniques.
The scientific name for this practice is Vibrational Radiesthesia.
Dr Lorrie Bennett
Dr. Lorrie Bennett is one of few Gann experts to crack the Law of Vibration! 20 years of research led to the solution based on a complex code in Gann's texts.
Following Baumring, Dr. Bennett explains the Law of Vibration in a 4 Volume Advanced Series revealing the Patterns, Numbers, Planets & Geometry behind Gann's secret trading system.
W.D. Gann Works
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann.
His private courses represent the most important of his writings, going into much greater detail than the public book series. Our 6 Volume set of Gann's Collected Writings includes supplementary rare source materials, and is the most reliable compliation of Gann's unadulterated vital work.
Dr. Jerome Baumring
The work of Dr. Baumring is the core inspiration upon which this entire website is based. Baumring is the only known modern person to have cracked the code behind WD Gann’s system of trading and market order.
Baumring found and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration.
There is no other Gann teaching that gets close to the depth of Baumring’s work.
Sacred Science in Theory & Practice
Cosmology and the Seven Liberal Arts
The Quadrivium & Trivium
In the world view of Idealism, or the Law of Vibration, there is what is known as an “emanational cosmology”. From the initial state of the unmanifest pure field, the first thing that exists is pure vibration, such as is posited in String Theory. What is vibrating is pure energy, though this energy may be of a very subtle, even unmanifest form. In this pure form, this energy is like pure number, or as Gann often quotes Faraday saying:
“There is nothing in the Universe but mathematical points of force”.
As these points begin to move in vibration they establish harmonic relationships between each other, or ratios, and these relationships can now be defined as Music or Harmonics. As the Harmonics increase, these frequencies or tones also begin to relate and interact with each other now creating another dimension of space characterized by Geometry. As this Geometry is further dimensionalised through time and motion, we now get Astronomy. These four subjects were defined by the great forefather of science, Pythagoras, and are called the Pythagorean Quadrivium.
This Quadrivium can be looked at in two different ways, first as this emanational cosmology wherein the simplest variable become sequentially more complex by adding additional ranges of dimensionality, activity and relationship, evolving a progressively more sophisticated universe as a result of the pure vibration being subjected to greater degrees of universal order through relationship.
These are traditionally called the four Classical “Liberal Arts”. Amusingly, most people who get a “Liberal Arts” education, and indeed most college professors who teach the subject, if asked what exactly the Liberal Arts are, will be unable to give you the correct answer.
The Seven Liberal Arts: A System for Understanding Our Universe
There are seven traditional Liberal Arts, the four Classical Pythagorean of the Quadrivium:
which govern our material world.
And the three Medieval Liberal Arts, or Trivium:
which govern the mind.
These 7 Liberal Arts in the ancient and traditional system of knowledge, upon which all of the original university systems were based, are considered to be THE foundations of ALL knowledge, generally the Quadrivium pertaining to the cosmos, and the Trivium to the mind.
One might argue that there are many other branches of knowledge beyond these, but that would be misperceiving what is actually meant by these principles. From a traditional perspective, each of these Arts was considered an entire systemic methodology for communicating the complete order of the universe itself, from a particular perspective. They are, in essence, systems of Symbolic Logic, capable of defining by their values and principles the entire system of laws of the cosmos.
Windows into the Center: The Mathematics of Geometry, or Music of the Celestial Spheres
Each of these systems is like looking at a diamond through a different facet, while all showing the same diamond. As such, this then implies that each of these systems is capable of deriving its own system of language to communicate the principles and laws of the whole according to its own values. This being the case, it becomes evident that any universal principle can potentially be communicated in multiple languages or through different variables.
Thus, there is then a correspondence between a variable in one system and the equivalent variable in a different system. So, taking the Quadrivium, that means a number can be represented by a sound, which can be represented by a form, which can be represented by a motion, and extending it to the Trivium, it means that each prior variable has an equivalent Logic or sequence, which can be represented by a symbol (Grammar), the combination of which inevitably represent a communicable meaning (Rhetoric). In Esoteric Tradition, these multi-categorical cross-relationships are defined by what is called the Law of Correspondences.
One could also consider the relationship of the Quadrivium as the 4 quantitative elements as relates to matter or physical phenomena, while the Trivium represents the qualitative orderings systems as pertains to mind. Since the Law of Vibration seeks to correlate ordering principles of cosmic phenomena with the psychological patternings of mind, the Doctrine of Correspondences would then determine a correlation through the systems of symbolic logic between the physical phenomena and mental phenomena, or in our context, a relationship between physical ordering systems and mental systems, both psychological and social, being mass psychological. Of course, this is a gross simplification of a complex metaphysical and scientific doctrine, but it serves to give a sense of the basic premise.
Process-based Creationism & The Evolution of Complexity
Looking at it emanationally, we have gone from an abstraction of pure unmanifest, mathematical vibration to a state of fully manifest ordered structure all the way down into the mind of man and patternings of mass psychological phenomena in only 7 progressive steps. When metaphysical or spiritual doctrine describes “creationism” it is really to this sort of a process it should be referring, not to some medieval, uneducated concept of a God with a grey beard waving a wand and magically manifesting the universe and man in only 7 days. Sadly, the religious believers of today are even more disconnected from the true esoteric doctrine that would give real meaning to their spiritual dogma than even the materialistic scientists.
In reality, these “7 days of creation” referred to in Genesis are equivalent to these 7 stages of manifestation from pure abstraction to manifestation in the physical plane and the mind of man. This process is not actually so far off from much mainstream scientific cosmological theory when it is put in the proper context! And indeed, it is even a clear form of “evolution,” though in a much broader and more sophisticated sense than is understood by the limited concept of evolution today, really a cosmological evolution. Even Darwin, when his ideas are fully explored, did not necessarily propose a fully mechanistic system without any kind of natural intelligence behind it.
All modern science is but a derivation of these original esoteric theories of the Ancients, and can be considered a subset of a greater wisdom that has been lost as science attempted to wrestle itself away from its roots, desperately grasping at half the equation, materialism, while metaphorically throwing the baby of idealism out with the bathwater of misunderstood metaphysics.
THe Law of Vibration is Emanational Cosmology
So, in essence, the Law of Vibration IS this emanational cosmology using multiple systems of symbolic logic to define a progressive system of natural order emanating through fundamental laws as the universe manifests from a Unified Field defined by a form of String Theory.
It projects from the unmanifest abstract planes to the manifest material planes, which are composed of nothing but slowed down forms of energetic vibration perceived as solid matter, and works its way down into the very structure of the mind of humanity itself. This matter is fully controlled and influenced by the underlying vibratory principles of universal order, as communicated through the specific interrelated variables of any one of these multiple systems of order: mathematics, harmonics, geometry, astronomy, logic, grammar and rhetoric.
Further, following the logic of this emanational evolution of universal phenomena, since it is governed by a perfect logical and mathematical order, the final results are considered to be similarly ordered as the principles that create that order. Hence, this leads to the premise that the financial markets are predictable, as are all things in such an ordered universe. All that is needed to read or decipher this order is an understanding of the logic of the symbolic ordering systems behind any element of that structure.
Learning to Read the Universe Like a Book
If this is accomplished, the “scientist” or better, the Natural Philosopher is capable of reading the universe like a book. In fact, in the Alchemical Tradition, of which Sir Isaac Newton was the most famous proponent, this process is called “Reading the Book of Nature”. This language of symbolic logic has been called “The Language of the Birds,” a mythical, magical, perfect divine language, used to communicate the essence of universal phenomena to the Initiated, symbolized by the birds speaking into the ear of the Initiate. Understanding this, is it such a mystery that Newton considered his Alchemical studies to be of the greatest importance of all of his work?

Horse Racing & Gambling
Many traders develop an interest in betting on horse races, since astrological and numerological factors apply to both fields.
For example, sports involve data on event time and participant biographical data like birthdates.
Gann studied works by Sepharial, whose Arcana & Keys focused on astro-numerological horse race betting.
Books on the psychological element of the markets and trading. These works cover both how markets are influenced by the psychology of the individuals behind them, as well as the actual psychology behind trading for the trader.
The two fundamental elements of reality are space and time, and of the markets price and time.
Gann always said that Time is the most important variable.
If you know exactly WHEN to place your trades, when the market will turn, top, bottom, react or breakout, you will be able to trade or invest with great precision.
Gann Science, The Periodic Table and The Law of Vibration. By Eric Penicka. The solution to Gann's Law of Vibration from the 1909 Ticker Interview correlates Gann's words with the cutting edge science of the Periodic Table of Elements to create a system of order based upon atomic structure and harmonic principles.
Baumring Metaphysical List
Dr. Baumring compiled long reading lists much more comprehensive than Gann's, covering all areas of the markets, science and metaphysics.
Baumring read 1800 words a minute and had a photographic memory, so he was able to collect a vast set of source works in his 10,000 volume library.
Around 500 are highly relevant to Gann’s work.
