THE SACRED SCIENCE TRANSLATION SOCIETY
& THE HANS KAYSER TRANSLATION PROJECT
Initially we tried to develop a subscription format, where members of the Translation Society would
purchase each progressive book, at a member discount, as it was
released. However, this became difficult, as different members tended
to want only specific titles, and not every book in the series, forcing
us to alter our strategy. What we have now decided to do, is to simply
release every title as it is complete, each at one flat price, and
consider anyone who purchases any of the translations as a supporter
and Member of the Sacred Science Translation Society.
There is no longer any
requirement for membership in the society, other than to support it
through purchasing only one title, or all, as one so desires. We will
then compile the combined funds produced by all of these sales, and
continue to dedicate them to the translation of further titles on the
We are now in the third year since the creation of the Sacred Science
Translation Society and are pleased to announce that we have already
completed the translation of the following seven works:
Hans Kayser - Textbook of Harmonics (Released August, 2006)
Petrus Talemarianus - Natural Architecture (Released February, 2008)
- Law of the Cosmos, The Divine Harmony According to Plato's
Republic/Timaeus: The Platonic Riddle of Numbers Newly Solved and
Illustrated (Released April, 2008)
Saint-Yves D'Alveydre -
The Archeometer: Key To All The Religions & Sciences Of Antiquity
(Volume 1, Source Text, Volume 2, The Musical Archeometer, Plus 60
pages of elaboration from the magazine La Gnose 1909-1912, &
Including 5 scholarly articles from the last century) (Planned Release,
Hans Kayser - Paestum: The Nomoi of Three Ancient Greek Temples at Paestum (Planned Release, June, 2008)
Hans Kayser - The Harmonic Division Canon (Planned Release, July, 2008)
Hans Kayser - Harmonia Plantarum ((Planned Release, Fall, 2008))
Hans Kayser - Akroasis: The Theory of the World Harmonic ((Planned Release, early 2009))
We expect to have all of these first titles available by the end of
2008. Our publication process begins with the release of each title in
our maroon suede, hardcover, print on demand, Translation Society
Edition, which we consider a pre-release format, allowing us to make
this important material available as soon as the translation is
complete. Beginning with this format is necessary due to the complex
nature of some of these texts, with their numerous diagrams and
technical details, which often need further editing, formatting, and
minor corrections. We will then re-release each work in a high-quality,
Collector's Edition, once every detail has been perfected and triple
checked, with the help of Translation Society Members.
All Translation Society Members who
purchased an initial Translation Society Edition of any title, will be
given the opportunity to upgrade to the new Collector's Edition of that
title for a marginal fee to help cover the printing cost of the new
quality edition. This allows us to release this important material
immediately for those anxious to begin studying it, while also
providing them with a beautiful Collector's Edition, at a lesser
cost than the final edition will be for those who wait. Sometime after
the release of the Collector's Edition, we will then produce a less
expensive Student's Edition, probably in a smaller format soft-cover,
for those who cannot afford the higher cost of the Collector's Edition.
Our continuing translation plans are to work through the entire series
of Hans Kayser's work, another 12 volumes, also to work through
Wortmann's complete work, another 3 volumes, probably attempt Von
Thimus' monster on Pythagorean Harmonics, consider Francis Warrain's 3
volume work on Kepler, and his 3 volume
work on Wronski, and perhaps his work on Charles Henry. Eventually, we
would like to translate Robert Fludd's 2 volume masterpiece on music,
and explore the works of Athanasius Kircher, Raymond Llull, and Rene
We will always be open to suggestions of
other titles by Translation Society Members, and will continue to
search for other interesting works of a similar content and importance.
We truly hope that this will allow us to maintain a continuous schedule
of translation projects indefinitely, in order to keep Ariel Godwin
(with the generous editing contribution of his father Joscelyn Godwin)
working on these projects as long as we are able to continue funding
them through sales of the completed works.
Members of the Sacred Science Translation
Society will not only be fortunate in having access to these great
masterpieces, but can further feel honored to have contributed to the
funding of these projects, thereby being directly responsible for
helping to preserve these works for the future of humanity...

THE NATURAL ARCHITECTURE: OR, A Report By Petrus Talemarianus On The
Establishment Of A “Golden Rule,” According To The Principles Of Tantrism,
Taoism, Pythagoreanism, And The Kabala, Serving To Fulfill The Laws Of
Universal Harmony And Contributing To The Accomplishment Of The Great Work.

French Edition 1948. Translation 2006. 456 pages. With 50 Geometric,
Numeric, And Titled Designs From The Author, As Well As 108 Engravings And 7
Titled Geometric Designs From The Editor.
The second title in the Sacred Science Translation Society series. This book
is a masterpiece of esoteric cosmology, coming from a secret French esoteric
school, connecting the work of the cosmologist Wronski, teacher of Eliphas
Levi and Balzac, and the work of the French Traditionalist, Rene Guenon. The
thesis develops a system of correspondences between the symbolic,
geometrical, mathematical and astronomical systems of architecture of the
ancient world. We guarantee that this is one of the most important and
fascinating works that anyone has ever seen.

THE LAW OF THE COSMOS. THE DIVINE HARMONY ACCORDING TO PLATO’S REPUBLIC –
TIMAEUS: The Platonic Riddle Of Numbers Newly Solved And Illustrated.
Eberhard Wortmann. Translated by Ariel Godwin.
German Edition 1965, Translation 2006. 135 Pages, Including 80 Geometric
Plates and 12 FULL COLOR PLATES.
This is the 3rd book in the Sacred Science Translation Society series. We
are just putting the final touches on it, fixing the layout, and adding some
extra color diagrams, but it is almost ready to go. This book is One of the
Ten Greatest Cosmological Masterpieces Ever Written! Eberhard Wortmann is
the only know modern Magister Ludi to have corresponded with Hermann Hesse,
who in appreciation of his brilliant work called him a master "Glass Bead
Game Player." The Sacred Science Institute is working in conjunction with
Wortmann's family to produce English translation of this Masterpiece.
Wortmann's works contain hundreds of the most sophisticated diagrams on
Sacred Geometry, Pythagorean and Platonic Number Theory, Harmonics and
Astronomy ever seen, as well as one of the most intricate elaborations of
Universal Order and Cosmic Law known to man. The vast and synthetic thinking
process presented in these works inspired a correspondence between Hesse and
Wortmann discussing the GBG. "Here it should be mentioned that the Platonic
riddle of numbers are actually a question of logical games of thought,
"Glass Bead Games", as Hermann Hesse, the great writer and man, had named
this kind of mental business."

This fourth translation in our series represents one of the most highly
respected elaborations of the universal system, by one of the most respected
esotericists of the 19th century. Our volume will include the technical
source text, along with a further 70 page elaboration and description by
another of St. Yves associates. It will also include another half dozen
scholarly articles published throughout the last century on St. Yves and his
