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.
A modern history of Freemasonry begins in the 1700’s with the Knights Templar and the Gothic Cathedrals, but its inner lore goes back to King Solomon and Ancient Egypt.
Freemasonry was an inner teaching preserving the deep spiritual wisdom of mankind, but has been diluted in modern times.
Our collection focuses on the teachings of original Freemasonry.
Most people never give thought to the idea of a calendar and how we organise the passage of time.
The days of the weeks and months, and the number of months each year are important influences on our experience of reality.
We present many works on the exploration and meaning of time vis numerous calendar systems.
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.
We have a selected collection of unusual books presenting alternative metaphysical concepts and mathematics, including conceptual approaches useful for financial forecasting or more esoteric cosmological theory.
Both WD Gann and Dr. Baumring used methods of calculating universal ordering processes focused upon methods of prediction.
William D. Gann
History's most intriguing financial analyst, forecaster and trader, W. D. Gann produced a 10,000% return with a 93% success rate in an audited 1909 interview.
Gann said his market theory was based upon the Law of Vibration, leading scholars and analysts on a 100 year intellectual quest deep into theoretical physics, alternative science and esoteric philosophy.
Magic Words Thru the Zodiac cracks the complex symbolic code that W. D. Gann used within "The Tunnel Thru the Air".
It unveils a Masonic Gematria cypher which serves to decrypt references and clues concealed in names, dates and other key words thru the text.

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.
Cosmological Economics in Theory & Practice
The Philosophical Roots of Cosmological Economics The Pursuit of Order in Randomness
The search for order within chaos is a quest that stretches back to the earliest reaches of human thought. Since ancient man’s first development of science and philosophy, two fundamental positions have vied for dominance. One claims randomness to be the underlying factor of the universe, while the other argues that order pervades this entire cosmos, and that the perception of randomness is merely an artifact of an ignorance yet to be penetrated.
As humanity advances from one scientific revolution to the next, from Renaissance to Enlightenment, through Einstein’s Relativity to high energy particle physics, pushing ever forward into sciences of greater order like Chaos and Complexity Theory, Superstring Theory, and M Theory, one thing is forever assured, that where once chaos reigned, now order dominates!
Yet still, we see the arguments of the random theorists persist within fields where their viewpoints are as yet incapable of penetrating, arguing with all the passion of the religious fundamentalist that the claim of order in some complex systems is even unscientific, when in reality, such a discovery would represent the epitome of scientific method.
Finding Order Within the Limits of Our Tools & Beliefs
In the same way, the modern economic theorist who believes in Random Walk Theory, may find himself denying even the possibility of order within a complex social system like the financial markets. CosmoEconomic theory would argue that this denial is due to the fact that their limited tools are incapable of quantifying such order, while their belief system is incapable of accepting that such order could even possibly exist.
The implications of such an unknown order or causation existing beneath what have always been considered random phenomena, and between what have scientifically been considered to be disconnected material and non-material elements of reality, would be so revolutionary as to force the redefinition of the fundamental assumptions underlying our entire interpretation of the universe and our position within it.
Leaving Room for That Which We do Not Know
Such considerations cannot be dismissed by any truly objective thinker who possesses the intellectual integrity to fully investigate the data before making an uninformed judgement. Such judgments would, in truth, be nothing more than meaningless dogmatic opinions, as lacking in intellectual honesty as the dogmatisms expressed by the ignorant religious fundamentalist.
Sadly, many scientists and academics today lack the intellectual integrity to objectively explore theories and evidence that fall beyond the scope of their dogmatic belief systems. In the evolution of science over the last 100 years, the limited biases of militant materialism and logical positivism have infested the scientific community causing what was once an objective scientific tradition to degenerate into a narrow-minded and dogmatic scientism that plagues much of modern mainstream society and academia today.
The Institute of Cosmological Economics looks back to the traditions of old wherein the investigation of reality and natural phenomena were done without the stagnant preconceived notions that hinder the modern dogmatist, whether scientific OR religious, as our position lies somewhere closer to the center between both. With an open mind and the tools of rigorous analysis, we seek evidence of correlation between uncorrelated fields that would never be considered within more limited and rigid systems of thought, if not being outright rejected without consideration, as many cutting-edge ideas commonly are today.
Reimagining the Future with Help from Ancient Knowledge Traditions
We have discovered that there are traditions of knowledge reaching back to ancient times that possess insights into the interconnectedness of all things, both material and nonmaterial, which have been all but lost today. In appreciation of this, we turn to resources that have been missed or ignored by modern thinkers and revive traditions of thought and knowledge which have been discarded or lost to the modern world. Our catalog of reprints represents what we have discovered to be the most valuable and useful of these traditions, permanently preserved for the of the out-of-the-box thinkers of tomorrow.
Back at the turn of the 20th century, the academic scientists of the day thought that they had explained all there was to know of the material world. Looking back at them now, we smile condescendingly, knowing just how wrong they were! Similarly, when we look ahead to the science that will exist 100 or 500 years from now, we must ask ourselves, “What will they understand and smile about, that we are totally missing today?”
Cosmological Economics is one branch of this science of the future that we feel has been missed or ignored by the mainstream thinkers of today. It has the potential to open the doorway to the kind of insights that have the power to redefine the scientific, social, psychological, economic and spiritual traditions of mankind in ways that are hard to even imagine.
Ultimately, this branch of science leads to a quest for a fuller understanding of the Universal Cosmology behind all things. CosmoEconomics is but one application within this grander theory that seeks to unveil as yet unknown universal correlations, causations and order within seemingly random and mundane phenomena.
Idealism VS. Materialism
“The Universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine.”
– Sir James Jeans, British Astrophysicist, The Mysterious Universe, 1930.
Returning to our quest for order within randomness, we must ask ourselves, if the assumptions of randomness within the financial markets could be proven to be wrong through the elaboration of a mathematical order or the demonstration of a process of cosmological causation or correlation behind such complex social and psychological systems, would this not require, if not inspire, a revolution in scientific, social and economic theory at the very least?
Such a revelation would force a reevaluation of all scientific and social theory from the ground up. It would fundamentally redefine the synergistic relationship between man and his environment, psychophysiology and cosmology. This theoretical dualism again characterizes an ancient debate between traditional idealism and modern materialism.
Idealism: Our Universe as an Extension of Mind
The history of the world, in every tradition as far back as human thought reaches, fundamentally defined the universe from what would be considered a perspective of “idealism.” Idealism sees the material world as being the extension of a mind, energy or consciousness based field underlying and empowering it. In this tradition, the universe is seen as unfolding out of this unified field, manifesting through a hierarchy of dimensional planes ranging from the highly subtle, if not unmanifest, to the concrete and tangible physical universe.
From this perspective, the material planes are seen as a subset or extension of the more subtle energetic realms, which serve as the source of all material reality, and provide the order and laws which govern it.
Materialism: Can it be Proven in a Quantum World?
In contradistinction to this traditional perspective, only in modern times (with a few schismatic older roots) has there developed a school of scientific materialism which has promoted an alternative perspective positing the material universe as the ground of existence, with all non-material elements such as individual or mass consciousness being merely secondary artifacts of a biological brain, without which all consciousness and subjective orientation is incapable of existing. Such a perspective denies the vast range of metaphysical possibilities which exist in idealism, limiting all reality to nothing but pure matter and the direct consequences of it. It is essentially an exact reversal of the perspective of idealism.
However, as science progresses further into the more rarified realms of high energy particle physics, quantum mechanics and Relativity, the materialistic model begins breaking down, and objective phenomena begin to be defined by more abstract elements like energy and fields, and the line between matter, energy and consciousness begins to blur. Paradoxes like Schrodinger’s Cat begin to demonstrate that the interdependence between the observer and the object observed is something that cannot be discounted, and that objective, material reality may not be something as solid and clearly identifiable as people think. Similarly, Relativity begins to distort the meaning and experience of time as it is perceived from different vantage points, even bringing into question the validity of our linear experience of time altogether.
In fact, in the same way that materialists often demand that idealists “prove” the existence of abstract elements, consciousness fields or religious principles like God, the same question can be reversed upon themselves. If one demands that materialists provide “proof” that the objective material universe even exists at all, and is not simply a conceptual construct of our subjective consciousness, like a dream, materialists are just as incapable of proving that existence as a spiritual person is of “proving” the existence of God to a materialist. Any person with the capacity for deep thought is capable of engaging and proving this simple thought experiment for themselves, and any honest rational thinker will see that both lines of thought lead to the same inconclusive ends.
The logic of such the argument runs as follows:
All evidence of the existence of the material universe is, first of all, only obtained by the action of an individual’s subjective consciousness, and any scientific tool of measurement is nothing more than the extension of one of our physical senses, the input of which is known only by the associated brain using that tool.
Similarly, all scientific laws, principles and theories are nothing but mere mental constructions developed by the subjective thinker using his brain and subjective awareness.
Our Unanswerable Paradox
Since it is impossible for anyone to “know” anything without the use of this subjective consciousness or awareness, the material universe can ONLY be known to exist within subjective consciousness. And since all perception, awareness, measurement, conception of the universe only exists within and through the subjective consciousness, there is no way to “prove” that the universe itself is not merely a mental projection or conception of that subjective consciousness.
In our dreams, our internal universe is perceived to be just as real as in our waking state, and it has been scientifically proven that our body and brain waves respond to these dream states exactly as they would to the real, “objective” world. As the ancient tradition so aptly tells it, the great Taoist sage, Chung Hua, awoke from a dream in which he had been a butterfly flying from flower to flower… but upon a moment’s reflection pondered:
“Was it Chung Hua dreaming that he was a butterfly, or is it the butterfly now dreaming that he is Chung Hua?”
This is an unanswerable paradox which undermines the position of the materialist once and for all, leaving the basis of their supposed “objective reality” as nothing but a subjective proposition. Every scientific instrument is nothing more than an extension of one of our physical sensory mechanisms, all of which are tendrils or extensions of our brain and mind or subjective consciousness. As such, no scientific instrument can be absolutely verified to be perceiving an absolute objective reality that exists on its own outside of our subjective consciousness. Remove that subjective consciousness and the objective universe ceases to exist right along with it.
Understanding this paradox leaves the contemplative thinker in position of greater humility and unknowing of the true relation between the subjective and the objective, the ideal and the material. This being the case, it is due time that mature minds put aside unexamined prejudices and instead open to the possibility of a broader vision of reality. In so doing, we do not propose the abandonment of scientific method, but rather call for a broader application of that method, not restricting it to merely materialistic phenomena, particularly since the scientific method itself is nothing but a subjective exercise upon subjectively percieved phenomena.
Re-examining The Scientific Method
Now that materialistic objectivity has been called into question, let’s also address rational objectivity and the relationship between preconceived notion and unbiased exploration. True scientific method is intended to operate from a mental position of pure rational objectivity, engaging in repeatable experiments to determine the potential validity of hypotheses developed from research or theoretical reasoning. Sadly, many modern scientists have lost the objectivity required to honestly conduct such research, and instead often evaluate alternative theories from a position of rigid pre-conceived notions and dogmatic belief systems which contaminate the results of their observation.
In so doing, much of modern academic science has lost its true scientific standing and has instead become the violent defender of opinion based dogma, rejecting without consideration theories that fall outside the purview of its materialistic belief system, just like the Church in the Middle Ages fought to uphold its rigid dogmatism in the face of scientific research and evidence. The Church placed Galileo under house arrest for claiming that the Earth circled the sun, and that moons did the same with planets and refused to look in the telescope to SEE that easily proven truth. In the same way, many scientists refuse to even look at the evidence provided by CosmoEconomics, let alone engage in an objective rational exploration of its possibilities with an open and explorative mind. And so have the tables turned…
Much of modern academician deals with issues like the mysteries of ancient civilizations, or PSI phenomena, healing, mysticism and the like by simply ignoring the issues, or denying that they exist at all other than as some kind of delusion. This sort of “sweep it under the run and hope no one notices” type of approach worked fine back in the day when knowledge was restricted by the control of academic institutions. But with the advent of the Internet where people can share and discover information from independent sources, academia is losing their stranglehold on public information, and the common sense of a wider public is calling such dismissals into question.
Our exploration of Cosmological Economics is based upon a perspective that rejects the institutionalized dogma of today which considers markets to be a random and unpredictable phenomenon, and instead seeks to understand and develop a wider universal theory that extends beyond the boundaries of modern random walk theory, and its basis in materialistic science. This is done through extensive research and experimentation to develop working hypotheses which prove an interconnectedness and perhaps even causation between these physical and mathematical laws of the cosmos, and these subtler, yet still universal elements of social and psychological phenomena like civilizations, governments, companies, individuals and their creations such as the financial markets.

Forex has become very popular, with trades not so limited by time and swings not as volatile as other commodities.
Forex is essentially a commodity, so its markets follow general commodity rules and many facets of Gann analysis work just fine for the Forex exchange.
We provide techniques, tools and systems particularly focused on the currency markets.
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.
Sepharial (Walter Gorn Old) was an associate of W. D. Gann and Blavatsky who produced a number of works on esotericism and financial market analysis, his Arcana & Keys being the most rare.
We reprint Sepharial's original collection of the Arcana, The Kaleidoscope, a 1000 page collection of articles from the British Journal of Astrology.
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.
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.
