About the Author

Richard Heath is a web developer with degrees in systems science and computer-aided design. The author of Matrix of Creation: Sacred Geometry in the Realm of the Planets and Sacred Number and the Origins of Civilization, he lives in Dunkeld, Perthshire.


"Using precession as a key, Richard Heath has harmonized the revelations of those great originals G. I. Gurdjieff, Alexander Thom, Ernest McClain, and the authors of Hamlet's Mill. This is the kind of synthesis one has long hoped for and a worthy sequel to Heath's own cosmological revelation, The Matrix of Creation." * Joscelyn Godwin, author of Atlantis and the Cycles of Time *
"All mythology is rooted in the relationship between Earth, Moon, Sun, and Stars, and these stories are at the very core of human experience. In this book Richard Heath draws these ideas together to create a vivid and inspiring narrative that reconnects us with our true origins and future potential." * Paul Broadhurst, coauthor of The Sun and the Serpent *
"Readers will benefit from a good grasp of math and astronomy, or an in-depth knowledge of constellational astrology and galactic structure. Health supports the theory that the shifting ages have an influence on the development of human civilization . . . " * Elizabeth Hazel,, September 2011 *
