Sean Erikson, a professional trader and fund manager, presents a set of highly refined tools for advanced swing trading based upon principles of celestial mechanics and ancient geometry.
Developed and refined over 3 decades of research, trading and professional management, his astro-trading tools represent the culmination of a lifetime quest.
Glass Bead Game
This derives from a book by Hermann Hesse, representing an underlying symbolic cosmology that is the basis of all science, philosophy, spirituality and thought.
Hesse imagines a game created using universal symbols to represent flows of thought or information.
This is a metaphor for systems of esoteric symbolism underlying all knowledge.
The highly spiritual Rosicrucian organization developed in the 17th century, with great figures like Robert Fludd and Francis Bacon.
This society followed high ideals, joining magical & cosmological practices with geometric and Kabbalistic systems.
Rosicrucians were known for preserving ancient wisdom along with works of healing and helping humanity.
Gann Science Reading List
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.
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.
Harmonics and Music
The science of harmonics is one of the most important subjects in the esoteric and scientific traditions, positing that harmonic relationships of vibration govern the structure of the universe.
W.D. Gann called his system of market order the "Law of Vibration", and used principles of harmonics and vibration to predict trends in the financial markets.
In Magic Squares the addition of each of the rows and columns add up to the same number.
From Ancient times thinkers have explored these mathematical mysteries, uncovering deep ordering principles underlying numbers and geometry.
Within his esoteric market analysis systems Gann used a "Squares of Nine" and a "Square of Four".
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.
The Sacred Science Translation Society & Sacred Science Preservation Foundation Translating Rare Source Works Into English Uncovering The Lost Mysteries Of The Ancient Traditions
About the Translation Society
The projects of the Translation Society and Preservation Foundation seek to translate – into English – the world’s rarest occult and esoteric source works; whose purpose is to unearth the lost mysteries and previously hidden universal wisdoms that are housed within ancient cultures and traditions. The most exact and high quality translations have been undertaken in collaboration with Ariel & Joscelyn Godwin, in Which Ariel would produce the translations under the oversight of his father, Joscelyn, Professor of Music at Colgate University, one of the most respected scholars and translators of works in these fields. The Translation Society plans to translate all the works of Hans Kayser (12 more volumes) and Wortmann, as well as Von Thimus' works on Pythagorean Harmonics, and Francis Warruin’s works on Kepler, and Wronski.
Translation Society Titles Available Through the SSI Bookstore

For a more thorough exposition of the Translation Society's origins and mission we encourage you to read the Translation Society Series introduction:
For many years we have been in possession of a number of important esoteric, scientific and cosmological source works in various languages, which we always dreamed of having translated into English. The Sacred Science Translation Society began with the inspiration of an anonymous Angel Benefactor, who offered to support the majority of our first project, the translation of Hans Kayser's Textbook of Harmonics.
While considering our options to produce the most exact, and highest quality translations possible, we were extremely fortunate to connect with Ariel & Joscelyn Godwin, and to establish an ongoing relationship with them in which Ariel would produce the translations, under the oversight of his father, Joscelyn, Professor of Musicology at Colgate University, one of the most respected scholars and translators of works in these fields.
Following the first generous contribution, we were able to recruit a handful of our most serious supporters, and received further funding from our initial Angel Benefactor, along with a large donation from another Angel, allowing us to continue with the translations of Natural Architecture, by Petrus Talemarianus, and The Law of the Cosmos, by Eberhard Wortmann.
With the completion and release of these initial works, the Sacred Science Translation Society morphed through several experimental stages, attempting to determine the best means to find continued support for further translation projects. The difficulty in finding such support primarily lies in the problem that there are, unfortunately, only a small number of people who seem, at this point, to appreciate and value these complex, technical, esoteric texts.
Our current strategy, which has developed over the last few years, is to use the funds produced by the sale of these initial books, and each progressive translation, to fund each next title on the development list. Initially we tried to develop a subscription format, where members of the Translation Society would purchase each progressive book, at a member discount, as it was released. However, this became difficult, as different members tended to want only specific titles, and not every book in the series, forcing us to alter our strategy. What we have now decided to do, is to simply release every title as it is complete, each at one flat price, and consider anyone who purchases any of the translations as a supporter and Member of the Sacred Science Translation Society.
There is no longer any requirement for membership in the society, other than to support it through purchasing only one title, or all, as one so desires. We will then compile the combined funds produced by all of these sales, and continue to dedicate them to the translation of further titles on the development list.
Our Publication Process
Our publication process begins with the release of each title in our suede, hardcover, print on demand, Translation Society Edition, which we consider a pre-release format, allowing us to make this important material available as soon as the translation is complete. Beginning with this format is necessary due to the complex nature of some of these texts, with their numerous diagrams and technical details, which often need further editing, formatting, and minor corrections.
In the future, we will then re-release each work in a high-quality, Collector's Edition, once every detail has been perfected and triple checked, with the help of Translation Society Members. All Translation Society Members who purchased an initial Translation Society Edition of any title, will be given the opportunity to upgrade to the new Collector's Edition of that title for a marginal fee to help cover the printing cost of the new quality edition.
This allows us to release this important material immediately for those anxious to begin studying the work while also later providing members with a beautiful Collector's Edition, at a lesser cost than the final edition will be for those who wait. Sometime after the release of the Collector's Edition, we will then produce a less expensive Student's Edition, probably in a smaller format soft-cover, for those who cannot afford the higher cost of the Collector's Edition.
We are now in the 15th year since the birth of the Sacred Science Translation Society, and are happy to announce that we have now created a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation, The Sacred Science Preservation Foundation, which will take over the work of the Translation Society and which will not be able to apply for grant money for this work and also will be able to accept tax-deductible cheritable donations for our translation work.
As of 2020, we have already completed the translation of the following works:
Eberhard Wortmann – The Sacred Vessel (Released February, 2021)
Herman von Barvalle - Descriptive Geometry (Release forthcoming)
Herman von Barvalle - Geometry as the Language of Form (Release forthcoming)
Our continuing translation plans are to work through the entire series of Hans Kayser's work, another 12 volumes, and also to probably attempt Von Thimus' 2 volume work on Pythagorean Harmonics, which inspired the work of Hans Kayser.
We are considering translating the work of Francis Warrain, beginning with his 3 volume work on Kepler, and his 3 volume work on Wronski, and perhaps his work on Charles Henry. When we find further funding, we would like to translate the original work of Charles Henry and Rene Hoenne-Wronski as well. There is an entire French school of esoteric science that is practically unknown in English since it's never been translated, which is worth preserving.
Eventually, we would like to translate Robert Fludd's 2 volume Magnum Opus, the Cosmographia, and potentially explore the works of Athanasius Kircher and Raymond Llull and Giordano Bruno. A newer addition to our list is the work of Branislav Petronijevic, particular his Principles of Metaphysics, which is a geometrical cosmology similar to that of Bruno's, which influenced Einstein, and provides the foundations for Gann's Law of Vibration.
We will always be open to suggestions of other titles by Translation Society Members, and will continue to search for other interesting works of a similar content and importance. We hope to be able to continue our relationships with top translators, like Joscelyn Godwin, and others in the scholarly field.
We welcome any and all charitable contributions to the The Sacred Science Preservation Foundation will allow these great historical works to remain in the public medium and be appreciated by intellectual students and scholars for centuries to come. Such participation not only provides access to these great masterpieces, but can provide a sense of honor to have contributed to the funding of these projects, thereby being directly responsible for helping to preserve some of the highlights of Western Civilization for the future of humanity...
I would like to express my warmest and most heartfelt thanks to all those who have and will participate in helping to support this vision.
Sincerely, William Bradstreet Stewart, Director Institute of Cosmological Economics The Sacred Science Preservation Foundation
Translation Society Authors
Hans Kayser was born on April 1, 1891, in Buchau am Federsee, Germany.
He was a contemporary of the great W. D. Gann and they shared interests in the science of vibration. He applied his unique knowledge into the science and technology of harmonic vibration to the fields of music, cosmology, philosophy, architecture, botany and more.
His 600-page masterpiece Textbook of Harmonics remains one of the most important reference works for Gann Theory studies today.

This is Kayser's introductory work on his Doctrine of the World Harmonic, and an essential introduction to the subject of Harmonics and lead in to the Textbook of Harmonics. An excellent work to introduce one to the subject and to Kayser's approach to the topic.
By the book Natural Architecture’s own testimony it was authored by "Petrus Talemarianus" during the hundred months preceding the summer solstice of 1944.
However next to nothing is known about the author and there appars to be a consensus that Patrus Talemarianus is a pseudonym for another author (or authors).
The United States Catalog of Copyright Entries (Jan.-June 1977) identifies Petrus Talemarianus as Dr. Alexandre Rouhier himself (the book’s editor), on the authority of Odette Rouhier (his daughter). Little is known about Rouhier aside from the fact that he was a pioneer in the first-hand study of hallucinogenic drugs and the authored a classic book on peyote.
Natural Architecture by Petrus Talemarianus ( $300.00 )( Discount Price: $220.00 )
The second title in the Sacred Science Translation Society series. This book is a rare masterpiece of esoteric cosmology, coming from a secret French esoteric school, connecting the work of the cosmologist Rene Hoenne-Wronski, teacher of Eliphas Levi and Balzac, and the work of the French Traditionalist, Rene Guenon.
The thesis develops a system of correspondences between the symbolic, geometrical, mathematical and astronomical systems of architecture of the ancient world. Loaded with 100's of diagrams of the most complex cosmological nature, this masterpiece is one of the greatest classics of the esoteric tradition.
The Law of the Cosmos by Eberhard Wortmann ( $250.00 )
This is the 3rd book in the Sacred Science Translation Society series. This book is One of the Ten Greatest Cosmological Masterpieces Ever Written!
Eberhard Wortmann is the only know modern Magister Ludi to have corresponded with Hermann Hesse, who in appreciation of his brilliant work called him a master "Glass Bead Game Player."
The Sacred Science Institute worked in conjunction with Wortmann's family to produce this English translation of his Masterpiece, and will continue to translate his 3 further works, bringing his life work into English for the fist time. Wortmann's works contain hundreds of the most sophisticated diagrams on Sacred Geometry, Pythagorean and Platonic Number Theory, Harmonics and Astronomy ever seen, as well as one of the most intricate elaborations of Universal Order and Cosmic Law known to man. The vast and synthetic thinking process presented in these works inspired a correspondence between Hesse and Wortmann discussing the GBG.
"Here it should be mentioned that the Platonic riddle of numbers are actually a question of logical games of thought, "Glass Bead Games", as Hermann Hesse, the great writer and man, had named this kind of mental business."
Alexandre Saint-Yves, Marquess of Alveydre (1842-1909) was a French occultist and author of "L'Archéomètre" (The Archeometer). He is a known proponent of Synarchy – a political formula (and opposition to Anarchy) which he believed would lead to a harmonious society. He was also an earlier envisioner of a Federalised Europe with a government composed of three councils: academia, judiciary,commerce.
St. Yves d'Alveydre was a powerhouse in the evolution of occultism in the 19th century. His his contributions to the field influenced the work of Blavatsky, Rudolf Steiner, Max Heindel, a young René Guénon, and more.
The Archeometer remains one of most beautifuly complex renderings of nature’s universal system available in print.
The Archeometer by Marquis Saint-Yves D'Alveydre ( $300.00 )( Discount Price: $220.00 )
This fourth translation in the Sacred Science Translation Society series represents one of the most highly respected elaborations of the universal system, by one of the most respected esotericists of the 19th century.
Our volume includes the technical source text, along with a further 70 page elaboration and description by another of St. Yves associates published in the French magazine La Gnose from 1909-1912. It also includes another half-dozen scholarly articles published throughout the last century on St. Yves and his work. This book is another of the Greatest Cosmological Masterpieces Ever Written!
Donald Bradley is famous for creating the Siderograph model of market action, and he wrote other astrological books which we publish in our Collected Works of Donald Bradley.
His Siderograph Model is famous for providing an almost perfect model of market action over the year. Our course has 100 years of Siderograph models (1950-2050).
Law of Vibration
The Law of Vibration 4 Volume Series by Dr. Lorrie Bennett on Gann analysis explains the scientific foundations behind W.D. Gann's forecasting system, the Law of Vibration. Dr. Bennett is the first person since Dr. Baumring to solve much of the puzzle left behind by Gann! V1-Patterns, V2-Numbers, V3-Planets, V4-Geometry.
The wisdom teachings of the Egyptian "Thoth" (the Greek Hermes) were preserved in the Hermetic Arcana, translated from Greek by Ficino during the Renaissance.
These trace back to the likes of Pythagoras and Solon (Socrates’ teacher), filtering through many channels to become the basis of Western Philosophy, Science and Esoteric traditions.
Sacred Geometry explores natural order representing foundational templates of the cosmos, via special proportions like "phi", the Divine Proportion, ubiquitous throughout nature as a primary generating and ordering principle.
Musical harmonic ratios dominate sacred geometry, showing how nature is a form of frozen music.
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.
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.
Cosmology provides the primary basis for our theoretical system of market order and scientific analysis. Moving beyond modern ideas, our approach to Cosmology involves Pythagorean, Esoteric, Eastern, and Ancient metaphysical theories of cosmology.
Our ICE collection focuses on ancient concepts as well as modern alternative theories of the universe.
Electromagnetism is a basis of Physics, but there remains mystery about the true nature of electricity.
Our books look back to the 1800’s where the subject involved vibrational physics and astronomical energy fields.
Gann was conncerned with the Law of Vibration as a principle of natural phenomena.
Leonardo Fibonacci is often cited as the discoverer of the Golden Ratio or Phi, but he was not the first, The Ancients called this the Divine Proportion and used it in their art and architecture.
The Golden Ratio is the governing principle of most natural forms, and the Divine Proportion is the most dominant mathematical form in the natural universe.
Much science from the 1800’s postulated a 4th Dimension, often considered to represent Time, in relationship to 3-Dimensional space.
Gann himself posited the idea of space itself being a 4th dimension in the markets, which requires the Gann theorist to become familiar with complex and often metaphysical theories of extended dimensionality.
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.
