Symbolism is the intuitive means of overcoming the limitations of reason. Here Schwaller explains how true progress in human thought can be made only if we call upon the "symbolizing" faculty of intelligence, developed and refined in the temple culture of ancient Egypt and reflected in its hieroglyphs.
The brilliant French Hermeticist R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz and his wife, Isha, spent fifteen years in Egypt researching ancient sacred traditions. Their analysis of the symbolism found in the monuments of the Pharaohs represents the most important breakthrough in our comprehension of ancient Egypt since Champollion deciphered the Rosetta Stone.
