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.
Speculation is the trading of market positions for the sole purpose to make money.
It is a secondary industry from general investing in stocks or trading in commodities where individuals buy and sell with no fundamental interest in the underlying market.
We publish many works using this term, like Gannís "Speculation a Profitable Profession".
In Gannís day the two primary focuses for trading were stocks or commodities, but most principles taught for stock equally applied to commodities.
Without ignoring Gannís commodity work we provide works focusing on equity markets and individual stocks, or discussing the stock market, revealing valuable techniques with a scientific or esoteric perspective.
In the 1940ís 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 1980ís 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.
The Canon refers primarily to an ancient esoteric system of knowledge and cosmology encoded into temples, artifacts, art and monuments.
The Egyptians had a specific Canon to lay out the grids upon which they designed their art, and there are also canons of proportion used in the Renaissance, as well as by later artists, geometers and musicians.
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.
Cosmogenesis explores the basis of Cosmic origins via intelligent universal creation, rather than materialistic random forces.
Consciousness or intelligent energy serves as the true plenum of creation, not random ordering of unintelligent matter.
Intelligent Cosmogenesis has dominated all scientific, metaphysical and spiritual ideas from ancient times.
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 Gannís system of trading and market order.
Baumring found and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gannís Law of Vibration.
There is no other Gann teaching that gets close to the depth of Baumringís work.
The Higher Purpose of Cosmological Economics
The Scientific Implications and Philosophical Meaning of Gann Theory
By William Bradstreet Stewart
There is nothing more fulfilling for me than to hear of Baumring students, or other dedicated Gann researchers, making deep, penetrating breakthroughs in Gann Analysis and Forecasting, since many people consider Gann’s theories to be either pure fantasy or impenetrably complex. Whenever somebody solves some key element of the Gann puzzle or cracks some part of his mysterious code that explains some element of his system, producing accurate forecasts, or developing successful trading systems, this provides further evidence to the entire Gann and financial community that these esoteric theories have a solid basis in the markets.
Further, such proof that markets are truly forecastable brings up philosophical and scientific questions about the nature of reality that are beyond the scope of modern academic science. Such evidence serves to prove the existence of a lost, hidden, or little-known Higher Science, that not only controls the markets, but must similarly control at least some part, if not all of reality itself. This is a paradigm shattering realization, and it just happens that the financial markets, when understood through the lens of Gann Theory, could possibly serve up the undeniable evidence of a metaphysical/scientific system that supersedes all modern scientific paradigms.
This science, though known by the Ancients, has been completely missed, ignored or suppressed by mainstream academia, the scientific community and Wall Street. One wonders just how that could be, and a study of the different schools of thought over the last couple centuries will show that the science dominant in Gann’s time was a very different type of science than we have today. Scientists in the late 1800’s were called Natural Philosophers, and the purview of their study was the entire universe, including all branches of science, seeing everything as an integrated body of knowledge.
The scientific perspective of those days was very unlike today, where the sciences have become so hyper-specialized that the physicist often cannot communicate with the mathematician, and neither can speak to a biologist, let alone a psychologist. Like the Tower of Babble, what was once an integrated and cohesive world view became smashed into incommunicable parts, incapable of intelligent interaction, let alone of seeing the universe as a holistic system.
This science from the Ancients to the Natural Philosophers was known by a term coined by the great Pythagoras, father of modern science: Cosmology. However, this term has lost its meaning today, where academic science uses it only in reference to a form of glorified astro-physics, and the search for the unification of the 4 fundamental forces. It has lost its meaning of old, which related to a system of unified scientific principles of order and causation existing across the universe, defined as all things in manifest existence, from matter, to biology, to mind and psychology, and even consciousness, which in modern times has been relegated to the superficial prison of a mere brain function, instead of being understood as the primary substrate of the cosmos itself.
It is the nature of modern materialistic science to provide petty reductionist theories for systems of complex beauty and precision known by the Ancient Traditions to permeate the universe with perfect order. This advanced science clearly resides beyond the parameters and limitations of materialistic science, as there is no theory in that paradigm that would allow for the possibility of financial markets to be predictable, since they are not a material entity, so cannot adhere to any kind of material force or influence. Therefore, proving the predictability of the markets fundamentally shatters the entire paradigm of materialistic science, a goal, the accomplishment of which, would be the great honor of any higher philosophy, and the natural intention of Sacred Knowledge.
This explains why this field of market forecasting is often summarily dismissed or aggressively attacked by certain types and schools, particularly the materialists, because its verification signifies the intellectual death of their entire belief system, without which they would be completely lost. Such materialists think the market is and can only be random, as their absurd Random Walk Theory professes. So, any consistent verification of an ability to forecast beyond a 50% random average proves there is a science beyond randomness, providing a death blow to the random action theory of materialism.
It is such intentions that illustrate the higher purpose of Gann Theory and market forecasting! The pursuit of higher wisdom and philosophy, order and beauty, the search for Truth in a world of illusion, and the quest for the ultimate cosmological science behind the universe itself; these are the higher purposes of this Work. To disprove false theories of science, economics, psychology, biology, astronomy, physics and mathematics, and to replace them with a new and improved worldview and scientific system of operation is the higher purpose of Gann Theory, or what I prefer to call Cosmological Economics. This is what I find most interesting about this study, and anyone who spends enough years researching this field will become enchanted with such higher values and goals as well.
The results of such endeavors have the potential to create new technologies across many fields of application, since the markets are but one small example of how this science operates in the world. Further implications and applications would stretch across every field of science and technology, philosophy and spirituality, bringing revolutionary changes to the world, if ever this Higher Science were to become known and replace the crippled and confused science which has so far served to half destroy our planet.
Sure, the ability to forecast and trade the markets for personal profit is all fine and dandy, but it is truly a superficial goal bred by another branch of materialism, philosophical or spiritual materialism. This materialistic philosophy has become a cancer in the body of mankind, as we view the rampant greed and corruption that plague modern finance, politics and industry, placing the wealth of a planet into the hands of the few, with most of those few being the least worthy or deserving of it. The desire for vast wealth beyond what is needed for a comfortable life or for the fulfillment of a specific task or purpose also springs from the same corrosive and corrupt materialism that pervades the scientism of academia.
It is for these reasons above that I believe the science behind Gann Theory should be released, rather than greedily hoarded solely for the personal benefit of a few. Higher Wisdom and Sacred Knowledge are meant to be shared, not suppressed, such that baser systems of knowledge come to dominate the world. Obviously, Gann, to some degree, believed the same, or he would not have left us what record he did of the discoveries he made. Baumring too had the same intention, leading him to teach his Seminar Series, though both he and Gann struggled within themselves to truly let go, leading them to veil and complicate their presentations to nearly impossible degrees.
My intention through the work of Sacred Science Institute and the Institute of Cosmological Economics is to encourage and support the wider release of this knowledge privately in its market applications within the financial community, and widely in its more general scientific context to the world. And in Lorrie Bennet, I have found a friend and comrade in purpose, who feels no conflict in privately revealing her financial market discoveries to the Gann community, and publicly sharing her non-financial discoveries based upon the same principles, but applying to wider fields of science and metaphysics. This book is the first step in fulfilling these many intentions.
The higher-minded Gann Theorist who will develop out of the study of these books will learn with time and experience, that there is a law of give and take, action and reaction, that pervades not only the markets, but the entire universe. The use of Sacred Knowledge, as this knowledge truly is, for materialistic ends can produce a violation of a higher law that will exact its own penalty for any misuse or abuse. This is the age-old and little understood Law of Karma, and no one falls beyond its recourse.
Jerry Baumring believed that the abuse of one’s forecasting abilities for the mere pointless accumulation of wealth had severe Karmic consequences, so he only traded to support his needs, without abusing the higher principle. He is not the only one to think in this way. This is a good lesson for all to keep in mind as they begin this process of acquiring higher wisdom in a financial context. This does not mean that this work cannot become one’s profession, providing comfortably for one’s family, and passed down to future generations, enabling a higher purpose and a more meaningful pathway in life.
On the contrary, that is entirely a just and reasonable intention for pursuing this work. One must just be cautions to avoid letting things get out of hand and out of balance, while being conscious about finding higher purposes and good works to contribute to with one’s gains. The universe will let you know if things begin to fall out of balance, though you will probably already know this yourself. Seek to rectify the issue before it occurs and thereby you will manage to always keep the scales properly balanced.
Franz Bardon's magical works present a path of initiation through 3 levels of the Tarot.
The first book teaches internal training, the second teaches the science of Magical Evocation, and the third teaches transcendental methods of the Kaballah.
Frabato presents biographical informatioin about Bardon, with commentaries by friends and students.
Zen and Chan are similar terms from Japanese and Chinese systems of Buddhism, but they originate from the Indian word Dhyana, loosely translated as "meditation".
Zen is a mind science, giving direct access to the core layers of mind.
The origin of Zen is in India, home of Buddhism. Allan Wattís called it "Hinduism stripped for export".
In ancinet times architecture often incorporated esoteric knowledge almost lost today, but encoded secretly into many existing ancient monuments.
Geometric principles of divine proportion govern the complex forces underlying financial markets as well as architecture.
We have one of the largest collections of books on these subjects in the world.
A fundamental principle of Cosmological Economics is the interconnection between galaxies, solar systems, stars, and planets, along with their interactive influences.
For example, the rotation of our galaxy is responsible for temperature fluctuations on Earth as a result of cosmic ray variations as we rotate through the spiral arms.
Non-linear dynamic mathematics, known as Chaos Theory, seeks order in seeming random patterns, exploring subjects like Fractals, System Mechanics, Lorentz Attractors, and more.
Dr. Baumring originated the idea that Chaos theory provided insight into market phenomena, and later the great Mandelbrot tried to apply Chaos theory to the markets.
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 1800ís 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.
