This e-book disusses those facets of worldwide manifestation. it is usually argued that the photographs of St. John's Revelations are meant in a in basic terms symbolic means. if this is the case, the mineral seems to be as an emblem for whatever of a soul-like and non secular nature. The Revelator despite the fact that, didn't see symbols, yet really realities; even an emblem could be real provided that whatever of the truth for which it stands shines via. It needs to, in a true means, be inwardly exact with what it intends, the essence from which it stems. therefore it needs to come up from an analogous fact; another way it includes no which means. the photographs of the minerals within the Apocalypse are only as a lot truth because the minerals are in the world. nor is crucial; either are easily manifestations of anything crucial. for that reason, either are really apocalyptic—the mineral we carry in our hand and the picture we carry in our brain. They show themselves jointly. This ebook juxtaposes the items of sensory visual appeal and natural-scientific examine with sayings from the Revelation of St. John to precise the joint heritage of the appearances. after we attach one with the opposite, it will possibly bring about an come upon with the essence. this is often an “esoteric mineralogy.” Friedrich Benesch permits a renewed come across among the individual and mineral being, from which essence and destiny can then shine out. a person desirous to glance extra deeply into the booklet of Revelations should still learn this fantastically illustrated, particular paintings on its which means and its value for either at the present time and the way forward for humankind and the Earth.
