The history of Palm Reading
originates from India over a thousand years ago and moved on to China, Egypt,
and ancient Greece, taking it's own shape in each country.
According to the book
"Physiognomy & Palmistry" written by Pythagoras who was a great
philosopher and mathematician in ancient Greek times, Western Palmistry has a
2500 year history which could be traced back to the years between 582 BC and
From the 700's BC, Greeks
colonized southern Italy. The modern cities of
Taranto, Reggio, and Naples were founded at this
time. The toe and heel of
Italy's boot came to be called
"Magna Graecia" -- Greater Greece.
Pythagoras lived about
150 years later in what is now the Greek
island of Samos off the western coast of
Turkey. In 550 BC, Samos came
under the rule of the tyrant, Pylocrates, according to ancient
sources. Pythagoras was opposed
to tyranny, so he packed up and left
Samos, traveling first to
Egypt and then teaching in the
towns of Magna Graecia in southern Italy.
At about this time, a
fascinating series of coins was created. The front of the coin
was raised as on our modern coins. The backs, however, were
"incuse" or cut in to the coin. The fronts and backs of
the coins were a perfect match. They had to be, or the
thin fabric of the coin would have torn. Most scholars today
believe that this was the work of Pythagoras.
Interestingly, at least
one town continued to strike these unusual coins long after Pythagoras
could have lived, but the style was not so
well executed and the
workmanship was not as fine.

So, when two
strings sound good when plucked together there will

he said. Thus

be stated in some mathematical form. Therefore
numbers are the real substratum of the universe.
The number one,
for example, is Anaximenes divine fire, Anaximander's
boundless. It alone of all
of the numbers is indivisible. Nothing can be
without being one. This makes "one" real.
It is separated
from what is only apparent, from everything
else, the many. From it all
other things become. It was believed
that the fate of the children of the world was
in the hands of the children's father. That the
supposedly innocent had to pay for
the sins of their fathers.
In this modern
day, the truth of this belief by Pythagoras is thought to be
a myth. However, I believe this is why we
choose our parents. Because of their
actions, it becomes our reactions. We need the
lessons that the parents bring.
There are no
mistakes, or sins. All sins are
stepping stones to the truth. If you seemingly
create a sin, you are in effect creating another lesson
to be learned. All murderers
will be eventually murdered. All thieves will
eventually be robbed. This is the
reasoning of reincarnation. Why else does a
little baby come into the world and be punished? Because that
baby in another life was an adult
that punished another baby. Everything gets
Popular Orphic doctrine
taught that there was a part of every person that was divine and
eternal. This they called the soul. They taught that this
part of a human being could leave the body. It was an ancient belief
that may date back to early Siberian shamans. As an Orphic Shaman
himself, Pythagoras was said to
carry within his body the souls of two ancient shamans.
What he did was to
develop this theme into a new concept;
that in every human
being there existed a totally good and completely
perfect, immortal soul that was trapped in an evil body.
that in his last life he was a Siberian Shaman, and in the life
before that he was a Native American
Shaman (Kiowa). He has had many
experiences that warrant that belief just as Walter
Russell repeated his former life -Leonardo DaVinci).
Pythagoras taught it, every living thing was activated by
a soul. Thus this soul
was the living divine spark of Anaximenes, his breath of
life. Keep in mind that the living soul of Anaximenes was developed
through purely rational reasoning. He began with
Anaximenes immortal soul which being eternal and divine was
necessarily unchanging, and therefore
had to be all good.
He merged this
with the itinerant immortal soul of the Orphic. He then made the
claim that during life this absolutely good soul was trapped in a
body that was constantly changing and therefore evil. If we consider
this, along with the ancient idea borrowed from
the advancing Persians (Zoro-Aster or Zarathustra), that truth, knowledge and
the good were connected with light and ignorance
and evil with darkness, we can see the
rational thought that tied these things together.
When the soul,
which was air, Aura, a part of the Anaximenes divine fire was trapped in
the physical body. The presence of
the material body obscured the
light of truth and knowledge. Since the soul
was immortal and pure, it is the body that is un-pure and evil. This is because
it is ever changing and always distracted from being good through physical
thought when the body
died it transmigrated to another. Transmigration means to incarnate backwards
into an animal and then back into a human.
When Gordon channeled this, however,
he was told that you only transmigrate if you do evil and vile things.
The way a man
lived his life would affect where his soul transmigrated to. Depending on how
he lived his life a man might become a donkey, a saint, or even
a vegetable in his next life.
The soul being finely divided air, was like the "one".
It was both
divine and eternal. All of these
ideas were presented as a form of the
traditional Greek orphic religion. His ideas
generally did not take root in the east.
Driven from his
home, unaccepted in Ionia, he traveled to
Croton, Italy where his ideas found fertile ground.
From this grew a
religion that was to become a source of ideas that would
change the world. The Orphic
tradition called for a ritual purification of the soul in preparation
for death. The Pythagorean
religion called for a purification of the soul through
mathematics and reasoning. For the
Pythagoreans a philosopher became more than
a seeker after wisdom, he became a
priest of the Pythagorean religion. Thus, the Ionian
tradition taught that the underlying substratum of the universe
was divine and eternal.
world was the rational outcome of an
eternal battle of opposites. Pythagoras
taught that the underlying substratum of the universe
was numbers and that the sensual world was the product
of rational numerical harmony. Thus the
Pythagorean religion included the worship of numbers and
hundred years later the philosopher of science, Sir
Karl Popper, said that though numbering systems were arbitrary,
such things the Pythagoreans were discussing
and such modern forms as prime numbers, must exist in
another world. They are not things we create.
They are things
we discover. (This is how I received my numerology book, through meditation and
through the class that I had on a Monday night. I asked the people in my class
each week to meditate on a certain number, thus we received divine knowledge
about each number).
In saying this, Sir Karl Popper was expressing the kind of ideas that the
Pythagorean religion was based on.
What we find in
the world may be constructed out of the divine, and, certainly,
they believed like the Ionians, that everything
had a soul, but what is
implied by experience and discovered through reasoning, that too was
divine. (I say this in my Psychometry book as well.)

partake of the divine. But this takes

the most significant of the Pythagorean concepts was that of
"Harmony" of the body. Thus the first
Greek school of medical theory was led by Alcmaion, a Pythagorean
from Croton who taught that health was due to a
delicate harmony among the balance of
forces that exist within the body. These forces all have numerical value.
