Continuing from Count to a Trillion, Menelaus Illation Montrose—Texas gunslinger, idealist, and posthuman genius—has gone into cryo-suspension following the discovery that, in 8,000 years, a powerful alien intelligence will reach Earth to assess humanity's value as slaves. Montrose intends to be alive to meet that threat, but he is awakened repeatedly throughout the centuries to confront the woes of an ever-changing and violent world, witnessing millennia of change compressed into a few years of subjective time. The result is a breathtaking vision of future history like nothing before imagined: sweeping, tumultuous, and evermore alien, as Montrose's immortal enemies and former shipmates from the starship Hermetic harness the forces of evolution and social engineering to continuously reshape the Earth in their image, seeking to create a version of man the approaching slavers will find worthy.

The year is 10,515 AD. The Hyades Armada, traveling at near lightspeed, will reach Earth in just four centuries to assess humanity's value as slaves. For the last 8,000 years, two opposing factions have labored to meet the alien threat in very different ways. One of them is Ximen del Azarchel, immortal leader of the mutineers from the starship Hermetic and self-appointed Master of the World, who has allowed his followers to tamper continuously with the evolutionary destiny of Man, creating one bizarre race after another in an apparent search for a species the Hyades will find worthy of conquest. The other is Menelaus Montrose, the posthuman Judge of Ages, whose cryonic Tombs beneath the surface of Earth have preserved survivors from each epoch created by the Hermeticists. Montrose intends to thwart the alien invaders any way he can, and to remain alive long enough to be reunited with his bride Rania, who is on a seventy-millennia journey to confront the Hyades' masters, tens of thousands of light-years away. Now, with the countdown to the Hyades' arrival nearing its end, del Azarchel and Montrose square off for what is to be their final showdown for the fate of Earth, a battle of gunfire and cliometric calculus; powered armor and posthuman intelligence. Judge of Ages is the wildly inventive third volume in a series exploring future history and human evolution from John C. Wright.

The epic and mind-blowing finale to this visionary space opera series surpasses all expectation: Menelaus Montrose, having forged an uneasy alliance with his immortal adversary, Ximen del Azarchel, maps a future on a scale beyond anything previously imagined. No longer concerned with the course of history across mere millennia, Montrose and del Azarchel have become the architects of aeons, bringing forth minds the size of planets as they steer the bizarre intellectual descendants of an extinct humanity. Ever driving their labors and their enmity is the hope of reunion with their shared lost love, the posthuman Rania, whose eventual return is by no means assured, but who may unravel everything these eternal rivals have sought to achieve. John C. Wright's The Architect of Aeons is the latest in his millennia spanning space opera.

Seven Fundamental Principles That Could Change Your Life According to ancient Greek and Egyptian literature, Hermes Trismegistus, legendary father of the occult and ascribed founder of astrology, practiced a divinely inspired form of mental alchemy focused on transforming the mind rather than physical materials. In essence, he pursued a sort of spiritual ascension, a transmutation of the soul leading to a freeing of one's true self. For millennia, though, the foundational precepts of early Hermetic mysticism remained shrouded in secrecy, known only to a select few. The Kybalion, purportedly written by three anonymous initiates of Hermes' teaching, finally parts the obscuring fog and reveals clear and simple pathways to understanding and applying the transformative spiritual knowledge, regardless of one's religious tradition or belief system. This life-changing treatise outlines seven universal laws upon which the entire Hermetic Philosophy, and possibly even the nature of existence itself, are based. These seven key principles are: mentalism, correspondence, vibration, polarity, rhythm, cause and effect, and gender. With its lucid commentary on aphorisms from original source material, The Kybalion provides modern readers with invaluable insights for achieving personal self-development and living the best life possible. It is also a vital resource for anyone seeking to deepen their understanding of paranormal philosophies, arcane truths, esoteric studies, magic, mysticism, the occult, the supernatural, or the wonders of the universe, or those simply seeking a deeper appreciation for the secret doctrines and powerful wisdom of the ancients. This Echo Point Books edition is complete with index. This book is also available from Echo Point Books in hardcover (ISBN 1635617561).

It is said that the KYBALION always appears at exactly the right time in the reader's life. Welcome to that time! The KYBALION is a mysterious volume of great wisdom written by three Initiates and was first published in English by the Yogi Publication Society of Chicago USA in 1908. The most familiar edition is a plain volume bound with blue cloth and stamped with gold. But what is it? The KYBALION is an initiation into a mystical tradition that has survived through the ages from Antiquity to the Present Day, existing just outside the perception of most people. The core of the KYBALION is a series of aphorisms that go back to earliest times and were passed down from master to student for millennia, the exact significance and meaning being closely guarded until the publication of this book. The KYBALION is organised according to seven basic principles, which serve to form the basis of all Hermetic philosophy: 1. Mentalism. "The All is Mind; the Universe is mental." 2. Correspondence. "As above, so below; as below, so above." 3. Vibration. "Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates." 4. Polarity. "Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites." 5. Rhythm. "Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall." 6. Cause and Effect. "Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to Law." 7. Gender. "Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes." Sound familiar? It should. The KYBALION forms the philosophical basis of all knowledge. If you have heard of that modern concept known as "The LAW OF ATTRACTION", then you have seen but a mere fraction of the potential of the ancient wisdom to be found within the KYBALION.

Man is born without knowing where he comes from and dies without knowing where he's going. Through his lifetime he considers himself subjected to a fate he has no control over, thus becoming a fortunate or an unfortunate man, without any posible control over his very existence and without understanding the reason for which he was born.He is told not to ask, not to think, not to reach; for "no one has the answers to life's deepest questions", and "no one really knows", "thus from nothingness he came and to nothingness he shall return" But this is a lie. Man is foremost a creative spiritual being and although he does not perceive it, he is constantly creating his environment, his conditions, and even his own life. Therefore, understanding the UNIVERSAL LAWS thru which man manifest his surroundings, as well as his own existence, gives him the keys to manifest the material conditions he requires during his lifetime, as well as the spiritual illumination that brings him ever closer to Divine understanding.Although these UNIVERSAL LAWS have been known for a millennia, they have been passed down and perpetuated only to the seekers of Eternal Truths, therefore they are best described as THE HERMETIC LAWS OF THE SOUL.Every chapter describes the inner working of each Universal Law, as well as its traditional reference and symbology; likewise, it explores its different references throughout religious and philosophical passages. These Laws have never been exhibited jointly and in sequential orden, thus REVEALING THE NATURE, MANIFESTATION AND EVOLUTION OF THE SPIRITUAL BEING.

The figure of Merlin has seen a revival in recent years, especially in the form of cultural icons such as Obi wan Kenobi, Gandalf and Dumbledore.This fascinating new book looks at the two main Merlin traditions: the cosmic Merlin of the stars, part of the Arthurian legends; and the earthly Merlin of nature, grounded in human history. Gordon Strachan, author of Jesus the Master Builder, takes us on a compelling journey through Merlin's stories.He discovers a remarkable pattern: Merlin figures, and events relating to Merlin, reappear throughout British history in roughly 700-year cycles. He considers where else in history we can see this pattern emerging, and challenges readers to find their own links to history based on their birth dates.
