Psychology's Primitive Tongues: A Thesaurus of Occult Linguistics

The Development of Correlative Thought, Vocabulary and Grammar

in Western Esotericism (the Western Mystery Tradition)


Note: Anyone who knows my work knows that IÕm not a Òtrue believerÓ in the subjects below, but rather,
a skeptic who still sees value in these studies. Sometimes this value is nothing more than a glimpse into
the human mind by way of its projections onto the universe, clues about who we are found in what we
wish to see; and sometimes, as with systems of divination, they serve as counseling languages for coping
with change and anxieties about moving forward in time. These alone validate this study, regardless of
any metaphysical truths or self-deceptions.
