Reviews

"John Michell's The Dimensions of Paradise is inarguably among the most important Gnostic transmissions of recent generations. With his candid, uncomplicated style, John has made widely available the visions, the laws, and the numbers held within pure geometry and which integrate earth and sky, movement and form, cosmos and mankind." * Robert Lawlor, author of Sacred Geometry: Its Philosophy and Practice and Voices of the First Day *
"John Michell has produced one of the primary texts for understanding the number system that encoded the prehistoric world view. He reveals how sacred geometry, myth, gematria, and the structure of numbers created a big picture lost soon after Plato, a knowledge replaced by derivative religious and materialistic ideas. The Dimensions of Paradise is an essential key to comprehending monuments such as the Great Pyramid and Stonehenge, but it also provides an initiatory journey into the ancient mind itself." * Richard Heath, author of Sacred Number and the Origins of Civilization *
"As usual, this is a dense, yet inspiring, read and one that has some practical nuggets in it for those who are looking for a kind of three-dimensional sacred geometry they can apply to daily life." * Institute of Hermetic Studies, Mar 2008 *
" . . . a top pick for New Age libraries interested in sacred geometry." * The Midwest Book Review, April 08 *
"A must for anyone looking for the science hidden within the matrix of life." * Rahasya Poe, Lotus Guide magazine, July 2009 *
". . . most intriguing of books. Recommended." * EarthRites.org, May 2011 *
