Using dark earthly colours to render the forms clothed in living light of the worlds of the hereafter, such is the authors’ task. Using a range of colour, they have sought to materialize the vibrations of thought... The mental body is an organ of wonderful beauty; the finesse and elasticity of the parts that compose it give it the appearance of a literally living light, and the more intelligence develops, for a pure and selfless purpose, the more it gains in splendour and beauty. In any case, the colorful plates of this book are superb. The Surrealists would have enjoyed them. Who knows... perhaps you could use these to find a job today? They won’t, of course, teach you to draw an apple, but they may help you on your next selection tests. And if you happen to practice emotional medicine? The invisible is beautiful.
