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.
Eric Penicka: Gann Science
The author correlates Gann's exact words to the science of Gann's day to illustrate his phrase "stocks are like atoms". Offering a system of "mathematical points of force" governing the structure through which the market moves, the emerging science of Periodic Table atomic elements provides a system of order through which to forecast.
Swing Trading works with short to intermediate term swings, usually with time periods from a few days to weeks, following a general changing trend and trading in each direction.
Most systems consider position reversal, and try to trade short and long as the market changes direction.
Gann taught swing trading first, with its relatively easy methodology.
Hans Kayser was a leading 20th century scientist who made a deep mathematical, geometric and philosophical study of the Science of Harmonics.
Available from our Translation Society, his books explore the deepest principles of Pythagorean Harmony and Order, giving critical insights into Gann Theory and The Law of Vibration.
In the esoteric tradition the use of symbolism as a communicative form has been taken to its highest representation.
Reading the symbols of the ancient systems takes great study and the development of intuitive insight, which can take many years of training.
Ultimately, the symbolist learns to read the world itself as the Grand Symbol of the Mysteries.
Since Plato the principle of Aether, a subtle universal plenum filling space and responsible for propagating forces and energies, along with Earth, Air, Fire and Water, has been a core universal element.
Until the late 19th century, scientists, including Einstein, and most cosmological systems, incorporated the principle of Aether as being fundamental.

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
Players in the Perennial Wisdom TraditionMeet its Greatest Champions from Antiquity to Today.
Heaven sends down its good and evil symbols and wise men act accordingly
Proponents of this Perennial Philosophy include all of great thinkers of the ancient world and many of the modern world, spanning the fields of science, mathematics, philosophy, religion, medicine, arts, politics and finance. Until quite recently, there simply was no respected thinker who did not embrace the unification of the scientific and metaphysical fields of thought. Their effort was fully focused upon defining, explaining and USING their understanding of this integration for practical purposes, in every field of worldly action.
The Far East & Classical Greece
In the Far East, Confucius was teaching his followers that, “Heaven sends down its good and evil symbols and wise men act accordingly,” while in the West the great founder of experimental science, Pythagoras, similarly stated that “the stars in the heavens sing a music if only we had ears to hear.” Plato, the forefather of modern philosophy, explained that “there is a pattern set up in the heavens for one who desires to see it, and having seen it, to find one in himself.” And Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine said, “a physician without the knowledge of astrology has no right to call himself a physician.”
Christian Proponents from the British Isles
Even the Christian church, which has now sadly lost all touch with the scientific underpinnings behind its metaphysical doctrine, in the past had great thinkers like St. Thomas Aquinas who proclaim that “the celestial bodies are the cause of all that takes place in the sublunar world.” Dante called astrology “the noblest of sciences,” while Nostradamus counseled the Kings of France while leaving behind a record of highly accurate prophecies that predicted major events and wars, even naming the perpetrators like Hitler to within one letter, 100’s of years in advance.
Or the great Dr. John Dee, personal astrologer to Queen Elizabeth I, and inventor of the British Empire, who famously predicted the defeat of the Spanish Armada, and astrologically set all the key dates for important events engaged in by the Queen. He developed a system of Enochian Magic which used an Angelic language to communicate with the spirit realms, while also writing some of the most important astronomical works of his time.
Elizabeth’s great playwright, Shakespeare, proclaimed through the voice of King Lear, that “the stars above govern our condition,” while her rumored son and Chancellor to King James I, Sir Francis Bacon, the father of modern science told us, “the natures and dispositions of men are, not without truth, distinguished from the predominance of the planets.”
Giants of Science: Kepler & Newton
Johannes Kepler, discoverer of the laws of planetary motion wrote, “An unfailing experience of mundane events in harmony with the changes occurring in the heavens, has instructed and compelled my unwilling belief.” This is no great surprise when one understands that ALL of Kepler’s predecessors, the great forefathers of astronomical science, Ptolemy, Copernicus, Galileo and Tyco Brahe, were dedicated and practicing astrologers, who primarily engaged in astronomy in order to improve the results of their more metaphysical practice.
The same applies to the great Sir Isaac Newton, commonly recognized as the most influential scientist of all time, who has been very wrongly portrayed as the father of mechanistic science, when in fact he was a dedicated and unashamed Alchemist first and foremost! His calculus and discoveries in physics, astronomy and science were but mere chips off the workbench of his Alchemical studies which he considered to be of far greater importance. He was fascinated with Biblical chronology and prophecy, wrote a book on Pyramidology which was critical to his theory of gravity, and once said to a sceptic in defense of astrology, “I have studied the matter. You sir, have not!”
Newton’s alchemical papers were, interestingly, purchased by the great economist John Maynard Keynes, who after studying them reflected that “Newton was not the first of the age of reason, he was last of the magicians”. While the bulk of Newton’s writings lean as heavily into the occult as into the scientific, in his day, he was considered a Natural Philosopher, an occupation that did not hesitate to equate the scientific and occult as of equal value, a lesson that should be more appreciated today. Newton is one of the best recent examples of type of scientist that we most respect, and there is no question that he would see the field of Cosmological Economics as a natural exploration of universal causation and influence.
Swedenborg & Goethe
The great Emanuel Swedenborg, called the Buddha of the West, began his career as a dedicated Natural Philosopher of the highest caliber, producing works of physics that are still of fundamental value to our tradition of study, particularly his Principia which contains important theories of Aether Physics and vortex systems. Midway through his life Swedenborg had a spiritual transformation as a result of, surprisingly, tantric practices, and began to see the heavenly planes and communicate with angels and divine beings. He then, using a technique of inspired automatic writing, which when one hand would tire, he could switch to the other to continue, wrote over 30 volumes of utterly fantastic material 100’s of years ahead of its time.
Or the great Johan von Goethe, who developed his idealist Phenomenology of Nature which unified the intuitive awareness of the artist with the rigorous methodology of the scientist, perceiving nature as a whole organism, and exploring its action through the metamorphosis and morphology of plants. His work later inspired the great occult scientist and founder of Anthroposophy, Rudolf Steiner, to develop an entire system that bridged the gap between the metaphysical and physical realms through the distinctions of space and counterspace, showing how the physical universe emerges out of the creative point at infinity through the lattice structure of projective geometry. This science provides some of the critical foundations of Cosmological Economic theory.
The Natural Philosophy Movement
All through the 1800’s there was a thriving tradition of Natural Philosophy, with the great thinkers of the day developing the foundational theorems of modern physics and birthing the Industrial Revolution, while simultaneously investigating the unknown metaphysical realms as equally valid explorations. During these times mainstream science focused on subjects like Aether Physics, Vortex Systems, and Electromagnetism, and the great minds of science Maxwell, Faraday, Eddington, Helmholtz, Jeans, Tyndall, Keely, Lodge and many more studied vibrational phenomena, aetheric astronomy, and explored the newly born Spiritualist and Theosophical movements drawing their ideas and inspiration from these deep metaphysical founts.
The great inventor of AC current Nicola Tesla was born during into the midst of this rich environment. Steeped in this great 19th century science, he creating inventions and filed patents for technologies to draw free energy out of the atmosphere and transport it through the earth to run cars and all electric devices. His ideas were so advanced that we have not yet caught up with them today, and sadly no longer possess their details since they were suppressed by the corporate power brokers of the day and stolen by the government upon his early death.
Einstein & Blavatsky
Few people are aware that the great physicist, Albert Einstein, kept a dog-eared and profusely annotated copy of Madam Blavatsky’s Secret Doctrine on his desk at all times. He told Heisenberg to do the same and said that if he dipped into it whenever he was handicapped by some problem, the book would inspire him. Blavatsky’s Isis Unveiled was also one of his favorite books. He is also known to have said –
“Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It taught me many things and I am greatly indebted to it.”
Carl Jung’s Red Book
It should be no surprise that Dr. Carl Jung, one of the founding fathers of psychology, studied Alchemy and astrology deeply in his search for an understanding of the Collective Unconscious and the inner workings of the human mind. His Red Book, discovered in a vault after his death, is filled with his hand drawn Alchemical diagrams and musings. He integrated astrology into his analysis saying:
“Astrology is assured recognition from psychology without further restrictions, because astrology represents the summation of all the knowledge of antiquity. The fact that it is possible to construct, in adequate fashion, a person’s character from the data of his nativity, shows the validity of astrology.”
His friend, Hermann Hesse, further immortalized the principles of the Esoteric Tradition in his Magnum Opus, The Glass Bead Game, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.
It is not just within the field of science and the arts that we find deep roots into the Esoteric Tradition. Many of our greatest modern political leaders also relied on such metaphysical resources.
Freemasons in Political Leadership
It is common knowledge that many of the Founding Fathers of America were practicing Freemasons, including:
It is becoming better known that the nation’s capital, Washington D.C., is laid out according to intricate patterns defined by Sacred Geometry which include specific planetary alignments. There is also a fascinating historical account by George Washington at Valley Forge where he was visited by a mysterious female who gave him a mystical vision of the future of America.
Benjamin Franklin wrote:
“Oh the wonderful knowledge to be found in the stars. Even the smallest things are written there…if you had but skill to read.”
The Astrological Predilections of the Reagans & Roosevelts
And even in modern times, Nancy Reagan received astrological advice from both Joan Quigley and Jean Dixon and governed every activity in the White House during Reagan’s terms according to such provisions.
This was described by their Chief of Staff, Donald Regan, in his autobiography, For the Record: From Wall Street to Washington, where he explains –
“Virtually every major move and decision the Reagans made during my time as White House Chief of Staff was cleared in advance with a woman in San Francisco [Quigley] who drew up horoscopes to make certain that the planets were in a favorable alignment for the enterprise.”
He also wrote,
“it’s common knowledge that a large percentage of Wall Street brokers use astrology.”
However, Reagan was not the only president to have received advice from astrologers. Both Theodore Roosevelt and FDR consulted astrological charts in making their decisions, and Teddy even had his horoscope mounted on a chess board in the Oval Office, saying of it –
“I always keep my weather eye on the opposition of my seventh house Moon to my first house Mars.”
We are aware of another astrologer who advised four sitting presidents prior to Reagan, though this information has not been made public as the Reagan and other stories have.
Indeed, most people would be quite surprised to learn that it is not uncommon for politicians and public figures in today’s society to secretly plan major events, political campaigns and much more according to such advising. Similarly, the selection of incorporation dates according to astrologically favored times is still a very common practice, even by large famous corporations, though rarely made publicly known.
This overview of the origins and proponents of this tradition should serve to demonstrate that the topic we are addressing is hardly some fringe subject pursued only by cranks and quacks. On the contrary, if one were to collect the representatives of this tradition into a single brain trust, it should be evident that this trust would represent the VERY greatest minds of history across almost every field of thought. In fact, there are very few truly great minds or influential thinkers that would not be counted amongst the ranks of the believers in this Perennial Philosophy.
Over the last 30 years we have amassed one of the world’s best specialized collections of the most important works across all branches of these diverse fields. We make the best of these works available through our website, our publishing imprints and bring new and unknown works into English through our Translation Society. Over time, we will continue to collect and organize this material in accessible formats to further trace and substantiate the validity of this knowledge in an attempt to coordinate this material into a verifiable scientific system, with further applications across all fields of scientific, technological and social endeavor.
George McCormack, famous Astrometeorologist, is known for his classic Long-Range Astro Weather Forecasting, the most popular book on the Astro-Weather Forecasting.
He also produced a series of financial market forecasting newsletters called Astrotech. We have recovered the only known partial set of 400 pages of these newsletters.

Gann Reading List
In the 1940’s Gann published a 2-page list of about 90 Books that he stocked and sold to his students, known as "W. D. Gann’s Recommended Reading List".
Each book contains some component of Gann’s system of knowledge essential for piecing together his system.
Any one book may have one simple idea critical to Gann's perspective.
In the 1940’s Gann published a Recommended Reading list of about 90 books, each containing an essential part his system, which he sold to his students.
n the 1980’s Dr. Baumring compiled about 70 of these titles, and we have collected the remainder, providing the only complete set available.
We strongly recommend these works to all Gann students.
Private groups and organizations that specialized in particularly practices and studies within their groups. These can range from the Freemasons to the Rosicrucians, the Alchemists, Temple Initiates and more….
In Ancient times, art was more than a form of entertainment or decoration, being a means of preserving various forms and levels of knowledge, including scientific principles.
A core element is called "The Canon", whereby through ratio, proportion, shape and symbolism, an entire system of universal knowledge can be encoded and preserved.
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.
One of the 4 Classical Liberal Arts, geometry is a basic ordering principle of the universe.
Market Geometry is the study of the markets looking at growth ratios and proportions of moves, structures, reactions, price levels and time cycles.
Gann, a master geometer, used sacred geometry for market analysis via Gann Angles and his Master Squares.
Space and time can be seen as the primary elements which define the container of existence in which we all function. In the financial markets we could say that Price and Time are the two primary elements which define market movement and structure.
Price is Space in the financial market cosmos, and Gann himself even referred to Space in market charts.
SCIENCE The Translation Society project has English translations of important books on harmonics and cosmology.
These include 4 major works on harmonics by Hans Kayser, "The Archeometer, a Key to All Science", "Natural Architecture, the essence of Hermetic science", and Eberhard Wortmann’s "Law of the Cosmos, decoding Plato’s Timaeus".
