These studies are very important in developing wider theories of causation, and our catalog contains most works of value written on the subject.
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.
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.
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.
Systems of numerology date back to ancient Egypt, India and Israel. Hebrew number science, Gematria, was woven through the sacred texts of Semitic religion.
Plato used numerical codes in his works, and Thomas Taylor elaborated the advanced systems of Pythagoras in his "Theoretic Arithemetic of the Pythagoreans".
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.
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
What Is Sacred Science An Introductory Overview
Sacred Science encompasses a vast body of wisdom teachings which embraces the whole scope of historic and modern Metaphysical and Esoteric Sciences and Arts.
The Sacred Science website makes available a rich collection of resources spanning the ages from the most ancient Wisdom Traditions of humanity up to modern esoteric scientific concepts.
We extend our modern scientific research into the deep study of Financial Markets, applying ancient concepts such as the Laws of Vibration and Harmonics to technical analysis of subtle natural, mathematical and geometric principles underlying Market Trends.
In applying Sacred Science to the Financial Markets, we have coined the term "Cosmological Economics", a new and cutting-edge paradigm which integrates the principles of scientific cosmology with economic theory producing powerful applications in financial market analysis and forecasting. This field has emerged from a long tradition of investigation into correlations between universal order, mathematics and natural science on one side, and patterns of mass psychology and human behavior on the other. The fundamental premise of Sacred Science is that market movements are not random, and that through the use of cosmological ordering principles, financial markets are predictable!
You will find much information on this significant practical application of Sacred Science on this website, but if you are seeking more detailed information on Cosmological Economics you will perhaps enjoy a visit to the website of our sister institute, the Institute of Cosmological Economics
We have compiled a long history of impressive forecasts and predictions that have been documented over 100 years, produced by a variety of analysts and forecasters with different approaches and skill sets, during different historical time periods. These analysts have left records of their market forecasts and financial models which have predicted market behavior with an accuracy that is far beyond the possibility of chance correlation. Sacred Science is the science behind such financial forecasting methodologies, elaborating both the theoretical foundations as well as the practical technologies through which such forecasts can be produced.
There are numerous approaches used to create such forecasts, such as cyclical analysis, energetic modeling, mathematical series, harmonic composition, geometrical projection, periodicity sequencing, structural analysis, sympathetic resonance and more. But the fundamental premise remains the same, that behind the phenomenon we call “the financial markets” lies a system of order that can be defined and predicted using the scientific principles which underlie certain systems of ancient, modern and alternative cosmology.
Stock Market Science: The Subjective & Objective Fields
There are two primary fields of influence lying behind this science, an internal and an external, or a subjective and an objective. The core premise behind the subjective element is that the financial markets are essentially a “barometer of mass human psychology”. A market is nothing more than the measure of the conjoined summation of all thought and feeling behind or about the value of a particular entity or product like a stock or a commodity. Some markets are even comprised of non-real, conceptual entities like indexes or ETF’s, options and derivatives, which are just purely theoretical entities with absolutely NO physical existence whatsoever.
A “market” then, for any such entity, is the summation of all investment decisions engaged in by the mass of society “trading” that particular entity. And the “decisions” that are made through the buying and selling of stocks and futures of any kind, come directly from the mind, emotions, and overall psychology of the traders involved.
The Subjective Dimensions of Stock Markets Movements: Human Hopes, Fears & Indecision
That psychology is influenced by a wide range of factors such as study, intelligence, information, emotion, and experience, which vary from person to person, from moment to moment, and continuously shift and change according to the immediate circumstances of the individual and current situation of the world. Every individual continually processes a combination of both his own individual internal experience, and his external collective experience, these two elements engaging each other in an ongoing feedback loop. The entire collective body of traders or investors in any market engage in the same process, creating what we define as “mass human psychology.”
There are only three possible directions in which the market can move: up, down and sideways. Correlatively, there are only three summational influences of human psychology as applied to making a trading decision, which are hope, fear and indecision.
With hope, the market rises. With fear, it falls. And with indecision, it goes sideways…
Extreme forms of these would be euphoria and panic, which are what produce parabolic spikes and crashes. The model need not be complex, simply a range of three general psychological states with their three correlative market responses will serve to provide a general psychological theory of the markets.
The secondary or objective form of influence behind the markets is caused by external physical or social phenomena which will vary for each market, having greater effect on some and little on others. Here we are talking about elements like weather, war, political upheaval, supply, demand, natural disasters, government control, social trends, the business cycle, and all other such external factors which may influence the markets.
Beyond Duality: Pattern, Repeatability, & Cycle Theory
However, we do not necessarily consider these factors in the way that a fundamental analyst would. Whereas a fundamentalist would look at each of these elements as a cause in itself, we look at them more deeply, seeking a sense of possible order or even causation behind such elements, looking for patterns or influences which may directly or indirectly affect them.
For instance, when one examines either weather patterns or the business cycle, one can easily discover that these events occur according to regular time periods which can be explained by cycle theory. There are both long term and short term cycles which have been proven to influence weather patterns, though the actual cause is as yet still a field of active investigation.
The Business Cycle
The Business Cycle, which by its very nature is defined as a cycle, and has been plotted out through history by many academic scholars, the ex-Fed Chair, Paul Voelker, even acknowledging the undeniable effects of its influence. But how often do you hear anyone ask whether there may be some kind of plausible explanation behind such a cycle, some potential cause? Is this not the next logical step in such a consideration? Yet very few seem to ask this question, as if a “cycle” were just an entity unto itself with no cause or correlation.
It is exactly these kinds of causes and correlations that Sacred Science seeks to examine. Within this paradigm, such questions represent the next logical step in this field of exploration. We simply ask WHY?
Why do weather patterns fall into regular cycles?
Why can the Business Cycle even be defined as a cycle that has shown itself throughout history for 100’s if not 1000’s of years?
Is this not the next logical step that a rational mind observing a phenomenon would ask about something that is, as yet, unexplained?
Is it not within the purview of scientific method to engage in such inquiry and investigation?
By analyzing systems of ancient and modern cosmology, Sacred Science examines the potential correlations between such seemingly disconnected events as financial markets or business cycles, being a mass social or psychological pattern, and natural phenomena, which are strictly governed by the laws of science and mathematics.
It asks the simple question: could there be an as yet undiscovered cause behind or correlation between these seemingly disparate events? And the answer we discover in our analysis is YES! Indeed, there is, at the very least, some kind correlation between these events that has been well documented over long periods of history!
Sacred Science: The Quest for Causation
Ultimately then, the field of Sacred Science seeks, at most, the discovery of an unknown, underlying system of cosmological order or causation behind mass social patternings like the financial markets, or at the very least, to provide some kind of explanation for this documented pattern of mysterious correlation between such phenomena. In either case, the results will inevitably define some unknown degree of order in what is currently considered by modern science to be a totally random or chaotic phenomenon.
Either discovery would be powerful, the lesser providing a valuable methodology for forecasting financial markets based upon the know correlations, even if the reason for those correlations remained unknown. But the former would be so radical as to inspire a revolutionary breakthrough in modern scientific, economic, and social theory, the like of which would force a complete reevaluation of the fundamental principles of science and the nature of reality itself.
Astrotech Journals. By George McCormack. A rare collection of astrological market journals from the astrologer and astro-meteorologist, author of the famous 1965 classic Long-Range AstroWeather Forecasting.
We have perhaps the only surviving set of his astrological financial journals scattered through the period of 1937 thru 1942!
Cosmological Economics, the Key focus of this website, has its origins in Gann’s Law of Vibration, interpreted and extended by the work of Dr. Jerome Baumring.
Scientific phenomena are seen as a basis of correlation and causation underlying the financial market, indicating a symbiotic relationship between Cosmic forces and reactions on Earth.
Ferrera Gann Textbook
The Path of Least Resistance, The Underlying Wisdom & Philosophy of W. D. Gann Elegantly Encoded in the Master Charts, by Daniel T. Ferrera.
A detailed comprehensive elaboration of W.D. Gann's most powerful trading tools. Gann's core mathematical and important geometrical techniques in his master calculators, angles and spiral charts.
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.
Analytical systems, techniques and tools based upon the use of geometry are significantly effective when applied to the analysis of market trends.
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.
Scott dedicated 7 years to analyze 100 years of Dow Jones data to decode the causative effect of planetary influences.
He analyzed the background energetic effects of astrological elements to project influences. His methods need NO prior astrological knowledge nor the use of a horoscope to trade the Global Index, Stock, Futures and FOREX markets.
Kayser was a leading 20th century scientist who made a profound mathematical, geometric and philosophical study of Harmonic Science. Available in English though our Translation Society, Kayser's works explore deep principles of Pythagorean Harmony and Order.
His books give critical insights into Gann Theory and The Law of Vibration.
Hebrew culture has great traditions of wisdom, mysticism and cosmology, the deepest of which is the Kabbalah.
We focus especially on Gematria, the Tree of Life, and the Kabbalistic coded language widely developed in Magical traditions.
Gann used Kabbalistic codes, creating hidden meanings such as found in traditional texts like the Bible
A generalized term for any kind of metaphysical methodology for predicting future events. Examples would be psychic phenomena, reading crystal balls, scrying mirrors, numerology, astrology, and many more such divinatory techniques.
These systems are popular amongst esoteric traders and forecasters seeking insight into future events.
Natural Order has from ancient times looked deeply into principles of order behind nature and the universe, like phyllotaxis which governs the placement of leaves on plants, the harmonic ratios between the placement of the planets in the solar system, or the spirilic mathematics of galaxies.
Natural order reveals magical relationships in the natural world.
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.
