For 20 years Dan Ferrera has been one of our most respected market analysts, with a Masterís Degree level of education in technical Gann analysis. One of the clearest interpreters of Gann, he produced his own advanced work of technical analysis, The Spirals of Growth & Decay, prior to writing detailed courses on every angle of Gannís work
Techniques, tools and systems particularly focused upon or the Elliot Wave pattern.
The two fundamental elements of reality are space and time, and of the markets price and time.
Gann always said that Time is the most important variable.
If you know exactly WHEN to place your trades, when the market will turn, top, bottom, react or breakout, you will be able to trade or invest with great precision.
Position trading is an approach recommended by both Gann and Baumring, saying that there were maybe only about 4 good trades per year in any market. Markets would go into congestions of accumulation or distribution for years awaiting a new trend, and meanwhile one trades other markets. Gann taught the same principles on his higher level, saying that MOST money was always made in following a strong trend.
Baumring Reading List
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.
In Gannís day the two primary focuses for trading were stocks or commodities, but most principles taught for stock equally applied to commodities.
Without ignoring Gannís commodity work we provide works focusing on equity markets and individual stocks, or discussing the stock market, revealing valuable techniques with a scientific or esoteric perspective.
Dr Lorrie V. Bennett
Dr. Lorrie V. Bennett is a master of the Law of Vibration and a true expert on the science of the great W.D. Gann.
Her recently released 4-Volume Master Series "The Law of Vibration" contains her entire teachings on Gann Theory in the transparent light of practical application. Learn in real-time from a living master's books and her interactive online forum.
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 Gannís system of trading and market order.
Baumring found and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gannís Law of Vibration.
There is no other Gann teaching that gets close to the depth of Baumringís work.
The Translation Society Preface From Hans Kayser's Textbook of Harmonics
By William Bradstreet Stewart
Sacred Science Translation Society
The Sacred Science Translation Society is very happy to release the first of what we hope to be a long line of translations of important source works in esoterics and cosmology. This project began with the generous donation of an angel benefactor who agreed to contribute enough funding to complete at least half of this first work, Textbook of Harmonics, by Hans Kayser. Then through the generous contribution of another 5 individuals, we were able to raise the funds to translate the remaining half of the book.
We had always considered Joscelyn Godwin to be the ideal translator for this text, so we approached him and he directed us to his son, Ariel, who had graduated from college with a degree in German, and who had been helping his father with some translation work. This was an excellent opportunity, since Ariel was more affordable and available than Joscelyn, while Joscelyn generously agreed to donate his services in editing the book to assure that we had an English translation that was equivalent to the German original. Ariel and Joscelyn have accomplished that goal in this edition, and we are deeply grateful for their dedicated and generous contribution to this project.
Upon completion of Kayser’s Textbook, we were very fortunate to come across another angel benefactor who agreed to fund the translation of a second work, The Law of the Kosmos, by Eberhard Wortmann, a masterpiece of esoteric cosmology and the Glass Bead Game, translating the geometric code from Plato’s Republic/Timaeus into a series of mysterious and profound diagrams of great originality. Upon completion of that second text, we were confronted with the problem of finding more funding for another book, or losing Ariel to another job, which we did not want to do. Fortunately, our first angel agreed to fund the translation of another masterpiece, De l’architecture naturelle, by Petrus Talemarianus, another text with the technical sophistication of Kayser, showing the mathematical and symbolic meaning and correspondences between the ancient architectural and symbolic systems of the world.
The Sacred Science Translation Society is our attempt to develop a better way to continue to fund similar translations of equivalently important works, never before translated into English, without having to rely upon the rare and generous donations of a few rare individuals. Now that we have three translations ready or close for publication, we have decided to create a society dedicated to the continuance of this project. We consider this project to be a non-profit venture, and all proceeds generated from the sales of these translations will be dedicated to translating more books. If we can find 30-50 members who agree to purchase each book in the series, at a 30% discount off the retail price, this would generate enough funds to have each new book pay for the translation of another book, creating a perpetually driven translation mechanism, through which we could make available dozens of fascinating titles from many languages.
We further intend to explore turning this entire project into a non-profit foundation, so that we could apply for grant money to fund the translations and publications, and to make the donations and purchases of members tax-deductible as a charitable contribution. Since this may take some time to develop, the Translation Society is a means whereby we can continue the project until the time we have developed more funding possibilities.
Origins of this translation
The individuals who are responsible for funding this translation all derive from a tradition of financial market analysis specializing in Gann Theory, an esoteric market tradition founded upon the work of W. D. Gann, a 33rd degree Freemason, and legendary financial forecaster and trader. In 1909, in an interview with the precursor of the Wall Street Journal, Gann stated that his forecasting principles were based upon what he called the Law of Vibration, a harmonic ordering process which governed everything in the universe, including the financial markets. He used a secret trading tool called the Square of Nine, which he was said to have discovered in India, and about which he only ever wrote one paragraph of explanation, to day trade on the floor of the exchange, and would consistently call market tops and bottoms.
Since Gann never explained how this tool worked, for the last century financial researchers have had to attempt to reverse engineer his theories using only his marked-up Square of Nine charts to discover what exactly he was doing. A brief perusal of this volume will quickly demonstrate why Kayser’s work would be of importance to these analysts, as this treatise presents the most detailed elaboration of universal harmonics with its applications to every branch of physical phenomena, and includes many of the exact same diagrams discovered in Gann’s courses and papers, such as the Square of Nine. The similarity between Gann’s and Kayser’s work has led some researchers to speculate whether Gann may have known of Kayser, being that they were contemporaries. If not, they certainly drew from the same sources of esoteric and cosmological tradition hidden within ancient and alternative scientific teachings.
I mention the connection with Gann as a demonstration of the potential practicality and applicability of the knowledge contained within this treatise. Many would think this study would apply primarily to musicians and musicologists, but surprisingly there are more market analysts who are familiar with Kayser than musicians. Another interesting field working closely with Kayser’s material in the design and energetic sciences is that of Egyptian BioGeometry, inspired by Dr. Ibrahim Karim (see www.biogeometry.ca). This tradition cross-correlates research in the field of French Vibrational Radiesthesia with the temple design science of Ancient Egypt and the sacred architects of the great ancient civilizations. They see Kayser’s work as demonstrating a “physics of quality” fundamental to understanding the reason why the ratios and proportions of sacred architecture create a subjective experience different from that of profane architecture. For those looking for elaborations and applications of Kayser’s harmonic theories, either of these fields will provide direction for a deeper exploration and experimentation.
About this edition and future editions
This current Translation Society Edition is a somewhat rough, pre-press edition provided for those who have been waiting years for the completion of this translation. The text is complete, and represents as excellent a presentation of Kayser’s style and form as is possible in English. The diagrams are all included and have had all the terminology translated into English. Unfortunately, some of the diagrams are not as clean and clear as we would like. The nature of the original edition from which we took the scans, with its particularly thin and transparent paper, caused the text from the other side of the page to bleed through at times. We do intended to reshoot or redraw all the diagrams, and to also translate the German musical notation into English notation for a future edition, but the challenges posed in doing this now, would have further delayed the release of this edition by another six months or more, so we decided to release it as is, since the difference is primarily aesthetic, not informational.
Our plans are to release an official collector’s edition at some point down the road, with perfect, perhaps redrawn diagrams, in a folio edition like the original, with slipcase and all the frills, as well as producing an affordable student edition for the wider public. In these editions we also plan to include a collection of essays by original students of Kayser’s, family members, and scholars. However, it will take some serious funding to complete the project in this scope, the equivalent of translating ten books, and will likely require our finding grant money, a large donor, or a publishing partner to make this vision possible.
We will continue to explore all these avenues, and we encourage anyone with any further or alternative ideas to contact us. In the mean time, we feel it more prudent to dedicate the proceeds from these Translation Society Editions to fund further translations, which we can make quickly available in the current format, for those primarily interested in the information. There are 12 further books by Kayser (see listing p. 613 of Volume II) which we should be able to translate within the next few years if we find enough support for the Translation Society. We have already prepared to have Ariel begin translating the next Kayser volume, Paestum, The Nomoi of Three Ancient Greek Temples at Paestum, Kayser’s primary work on the harmonics of ancient architecture. We intend to follow that work with Harmonia Plantarum, Kayser’s work on the harmonics of plant form.
We are in the process of completing a Hans Kayser website, www.hanskayser.com, where we will collect information, articles, and links related to Kayser’s work, harmonics and related subjects. Kayser’s books will be available through this site, and we will provide an open discussion forum where people can discuss their research and thoughts on the material. We expect to have this site available within a few months of the book’s release, and invite everyone to come communicate with each other and develop a lively research forum, spanning numerous fields of expertise.

With rare research from the 1920ís through the 1970ís, the Hasbrouck Space-Time Archives studied market influence based on Solar Field Force.
Muriel Hasbrouck, aided by her husband Louis, researched solar phenomena, space weather and earthquakes in relation to market forecasting, producing a well-received forecasting letter for 30 years.
Law of Vibration
Research works or market systems based upon Gannís theory of the Law of Vibration. Includes many scientific and esoteric work getting into harmonics, cycles, and cosmology as it relates to causative systems of order behind the markets. Primary reference and research section for those studying deep Gann analysis.
Speculation is the trading of market positions for the sole purpose to make money.
It is a secondary industry from general investing in stocks or trading in commodities where individuals buy and sell with no fundamental interest in the underlying market.
We publish many works using this term, like Gannís "Speculation a Profitable Profession".
Since Plato the principle of Aether, a subtle universal plenum filling space and responsible for propagating forces and energies, along with Earth, Air, Fire and Water, has been a core universal element.
Until the late 19th century, scientists, including Einstein, and most cosmological systems, incorporated the principle of Aether as being fundamental.
The origin of modern chemistry goes back to the mysterious science of Alchemy, which originated in Ancient Egypt, know to the Arabs as Kemi, the Black Lands.
Alchemical experiments with chemicals and compounds led to the modern science of chemistry, although Alchemy incorporates spiritual and esoteric elements missing from chemistry.
Cosmology provides the primary basis for our theoretical system of market order and scientific analysis. Moving beyond modern ideas, our approach to Cosmology involves Pythagorean, Esoteric, Eastern, and Ancient metaphysical theories of cosmology.
Our ICE collection focuses on ancient concepts as well as modern alternative theories of the universe.
Harmonics and Music
The science of harmonics is one of the most important subjects in the esoteric and scientific traditions, positing that harmonic relationships of vibration govern the structure of the universe.
W.D. Gann called his system of market order the "Law of Vibration", and used principles of harmonics and vibration to predict trends in the financial markets.
Natural Order has from ancient times looked deeply into principles of order behind nature and the universe, like phyllotaxis which governs the placement of leaves on plants, the harmonic ratios between the placement of the planets in the solar system, or the spirilic mathematics of galaxies.
Natural order reveals magical relationships in the natural world.
