P. D. Ouspensky
Ouspensky explores the idea that true civilization lies in esotericism and that modern Western culture lacks the hidden knowledge needed for true advancement. Drawing from Christianity, Judaism, Eastern philosophies, Tarot symbolism, mysticism, dreams, hypnosis, yoga, and scientific principles, he attempts to answer essential questions: what does the world look like? Is there order or chaos? Did the universe happen by chance, or was it deliberately made? A New Model of the Universe meets the late 20th century's requirement to investigate the source and purpose of life through traditional and ancient beliefs.
