And what is this unknown, so-called transitional state?
In a well-crafted treatise that contributes original research and data concerning the terms “man number four” and the “law of octaves”, author A. J. da Silva explores specific esoteric ideas introduced to the West by George Gurdjieff and P.D. Ouspensky.
In the second edition of his book Do From the Octave of Man Number Four, Mr. da Silva presents an independent study into areas merely hinted at in the works of these two men to provide his readers a deeper understanding on the subjects.
THE GODDESS, A MOVEABLE FEAST
Andrew J. da Silva is the author of DO FROM THE OCTAVE OF MAN NUMBER FOUR which is a work based on the ideas of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky. The right to publish this book was granted to Mr. da Silva by the Gurdjieff Foundation in New York City in 1984.
These two love stories presented here are related to Gurdjieff’s ideas of how the outer life acknowledges and fulfills the requirements of the inner life. These inner and outer lives are of equal importance and they try to coordinate harmoniously with each other. The task is a difficult one.
The protagonists in these stories are each striving to work with their Self in our confusing, bipedal animal world, in order to leave it and inhabit the celestial. Might this be the next step in our evolution?
