Volume 1 of Dr. Lorrie Bennet's 4 volume series. A course in Theoretical Wave Mechanics as an introduction and foundation to Gann's Law of Vibration. This volume lays foundations for all Gann and Baumring's higher teachings and is an essential prerequisite to move on to the deeper levels of Gann Theory presented in Vols. 2-4.
Baumring Reading List
Dr. Baumring's reading lists were very comprehensive, covering all areas of the markets, sciences and metaphysical fields.
Baumring was an intensive scholar who read 1800 words a minute and had a photographic memory, thus extendinghis scope.
Baumring's 10,000 volume library included around 500 books which he saw as core information.
Among professional traders, risk management is understood to be the absolutely most fundamental element leading to successful trading, because with proper risk management one can use randomly generated signals and still trade successfully.
This is done by limiting oneís losses while letting oneís profits run.
Weather has a strong influence on the potential prices of crops, so Astrological weather forecasting was of great interest to market analysts.
We publish George McCormack's Long Range Astro-weather Forecasting which is considered one of the better classics.
A.J. Pearce also wrote some sections on weather forecasting which are classics.
Most mystical systems tend to come from Eastern Traditions, dominated by Hindu Vedanta and Buddhism, followed by the Sufi tradition.
Judaism has the mystical tradition of Kaballah, and Christianity has great figures like Meister Eckhart, St. Teresa of Avilla, Hildegard von Bingen and Thomas Merton.
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.
Science of Vibration
W. D. Gann coined this term as a basis of his system of market forecasting. It explores theories of aether physics, vortex systems, and universal order as considered in the late 1800ís, incorporated with valuable elements taken from esoteric cosmology.
The theory posits that vibration underlies all phenomena, and that harmonic factors govern universal forces.
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 Teachings of Jerome Baumring His Investment Centre Gann Seminars
Trading had become somewhat boring to him, now that the challenge was removed from it. His interest started to wane and he began to seek another outlet for his voracious intellect. He was not a materialistic person, and was not particularly interested in accumulating large sums of money, since he could trade whenever he wanted to acquire any funds he needed. Aside from his large book collection, had few physical desires, and since he had no children, there was no one to leave an unneeded fortune to. This left him looking for a new and different kind of challenge.
Baumring’s Karmic Debt
One of the unfortunate byproducts of his new level of understanding was the lack of people capable of communicating with on a stimulating level. Like Gann, Baumring also felt an obligation, what he often referred to as a “karmic debt”, to, as Gann said, “pass on the enlightenment that had been heaped on himself in abundance”. There seemed to be one clear solution to his quest for some new engaging endeavor, which was to try to share his understanding of “Gann Harmony”. Teaching this system would certainly be a challenge, would balance his “karmic debt”, and at worst, would develop some stimulating interaction.
Beginning with this announcement of our coming very thorough Course of Instruction in W. D. Gann’s almost unknown methods of analysis of stocks and commodities, we feel very strongly we must resolve the misinformation and misconceptions of this great, great man’s exceptional methodology.
To put a stop to so much that has been wrongly propagated (generally by mostly sincere people) as to what Mr. Gann’s approach involved (such as astrology, angles, his numbered squares, cardinal crosses, and on and on), we unequivocally state that to the best of our knowledge nobody to date has ever dealt with, or has been able to even accurately explain The Law of Vibration which Mr. Gann, with great authority, said was the key to explain all phases of market action. Without properly understanding the basic laws relating to Vibration, of what value could any or all of the propagated so-called Gann concepts possess?
Now for the first time since Gann himself personally taught his precepts and his Course of Instruction, we shall be offering a comprehensive and elaborate Course of a similar nature. This Course begins with a thorough examination of The Law of Vibration, and thereafter progresses to Number Set Theory (Numerology), followed by the Law of Proportion as demonstrated by Geometrical applications, and going onward into the areas vital to Gann analysis such as harmonics, the mathematics of music, angles, along with much, much more.
Also presented for the first time will be a full discourse on the concept of the squaring of the circle as utilized by, and the secret to Mr. Gann’s favorite concept, that of the squaring of Price and Time.”
It is our plan to offer this Course of instruction to small classes only, in a series of 12 weekend workshops (2 full days) with the time between each workshop being approximately 3-4 months, and requiring something like 3 years to complete. One does not become a skilled surgeon overnight, just as one does not acquire the wisdom of W. D. Gann’s discoveries in a one weekend seminar.
We strongly emphasize this as we certainly want it to be understood that this course will entail a fair amount of time, it will involve its fair share of hard work and study, and that between each workshop there will be charting to be done, data gathered, books and papers to be read.
However, the foregoing is just one side of the coin - the hard work and the hard effort that will be required; on the other side (the reward one), what the student can expect is to have a well-defined trading discipline, that should be able to predict probable turning points in terms of time and price. While no system can be considered 100% effective, in the long run this trading system should produce a profit to loss ratio which strongly favors the profit side.”
Building From the Basics
Dr Baumring’s approach to interpreting Gann was to follow Gann’s clues and clear indications as to what were the necessary topics in need of understanding and application. Gann’s well known Ticker Interview states very clearly that the foundations of his system were mathematics, chemistry, physics, astronomy, harmonics, natural philosophy, “the universal law of causation and harmony”, wireless telegraphy, etc., all summed up in the Law of Vibration.
He was continually amazed to find that most Gann students and “experts” have very little knowledge in even one of these fields, let alone in all of them. How can one possible expect to understand Gann’s methodologies when one does not even understand the most fundamental principles upon which Gann says his system is based? How can one possibly be expected to predict the future when one does not even understand the principles and laws which govern the present?
There is no question that without a thorough understanding of these principles it is IMPOSSIBLE to understand Gann! Dr. Baumring’s approach was to thoroughly educate his students in every field necessary to develop an understanding of the universal system of cause and effect founded upon the Law of Vibration.
The Baumring Materials: Courses & Reading Lists
He made this easier for his students by personally selecting from his review of over 5,000 books, the clearest and most easily accessible presentations of the exact concepts needed for an understanding of Gann’s methods. These presentations were collected together into a series of notebooks or Course Manuals which Baumring presented to his students along with required reading lists necessary to elaborate the concepts into a complete understanding prior to each of the seminars, so that students could study the ideas in preparation for their further development and application at the seminars.
In his lectures, Dr. Baumring would tie these principles together with demonstrations in the markets leading the student to an understanding of a universal system of cosmology or natural order that lies both behind the markets and behind all physical phenomena. He presented a number of utterly original perspectives and concepts which had never before been even considered let alone taught by any supposed Gann “expert”, though fundamental to the essence of Gann, even though never described by him openly.
Market Concepts Unique to Baumring’s Teachings
The 4 Dimensional Stock Market Theory
One such perspective is that the markets are a multi-dimensional phenomenon, observable in at least 3 dimensional planes (with a 4th dimension pulling in added influence), growing like a large molecule or crystal rotating in space and time, moving in and out of the Z plane, characterized by its specifically defined bonding angles made between the different atoms that make up its composition. Without understanding that the market is 3-Dimensional, twisting and growing just like a plant or a shell, governed by the phyllotactic laws of dual number series and harmonic composition and decomposition, all measurements taken on a 2-Dimensional chart are totally misleading. But this perspective explains why we look to the natural sciences and laws of order, or growth and form to understand a financial market, since a market is essentially a similar living organic form.
Stock Market DNA
Another highly original perspective developed and only ever discussed by Baumring was in seeing a DNA coding behind the markets that was an equivalent to the sequencing of the amino acids that make up DNA and determine the function of DNA according to their particular sequencing. Baumring discovered similar sequenced building blocks within the markets and was able to read them to project market action into the future. One fascinating trick that he used to do at his seminars, was to have a student pull 3 daily charts for one year each at random from a selection of 50 years of daily charts, which he would then pull a forecast out of by observing the sequencing on those 3 samples.
Modern Day Translations of Esoteric Wisdom
Baumring would often translated the “metaphysical” or “mystical” concepts from the older esoteric tradition into modern counterparts: “astrology” becoming “numerical astrophysics”, celestial mechanic”, or “optics”, “numerology” becoming “number set theory”, “mystic symbolism” becoming “symbolic logic”, “sacred geometry” becoming “lattice theory” or “the projective geometry of light”. He often mentioned that these different branches of knowledge were merely various manifestations of one holistic cosmological phenomenon or universal ordering system, presenting itself in differing forms of “symbolic logic”.
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).
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.
