  1. Looking for... Ara Foederis Therapici from 1616?? (found)

    Everything I find is the 1618 publication. I found access to an old paper on the WayBack Machine archive, but of course, the pictures are missing. The author of the paper included much of the same information in a later book she wrote, but didn't include the image there:

    "From 1616 to 1618, Johannes Bureus produced no less than three Rosicrucian pamphlets building up to his claim about the secret of the Runes and their Gothic past. The first of these, the Ara Foederis Therapici

  2. Harmonics

    So waves, especially sine waves, are geometric. A sine wave is basically a rolling motion along a straight line.. so circles and lines. At some point I started thinking about how the chords created by polygons inscribed inside circles look like parts of a waveform. So I cut it up and copy pasted the chord segments.. then reversed every second one to create a waveform:

    This is probably my favorite thing I've done, a reproduction of Bruno's "Atrium Veneris". I like to think of it as a play on "4 dimensional cube", because there are four cubes of different dimensions:

  5. Die Erleuchteten

    Well, this one I remembered ordering.



    They lied when they said it was in "Good" condition. It's in excellent condition.

    I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it. I don't read German. Ha ha. I just may cut it up and make an excellent scan of it. Scanning it on a flatbed would kill it anyways (its 624 pages). I found this neat mount for my DSLR that would allow me to connect it to a frame and scan it like ...
