All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
I'm reading Robert Garland's "The Greek Way of Death" at the moment. I'm fascinated by the various funerary practices and myths surrounding Hades and the Underworld.
I think when I'm finished with that, I'll purchase Walter Burkert's "Homo Necans: An Anthropology of Ancient Greek Sacrificial Ritual and Myth". While I can't practice a reconstruction of the ancient practice of sacrifice due to my living situation here, it is something I'd like to research.
Elixer of Immortality by Robert Cox
He suggests that ancient alchemy may have been a method of cold fusion, based on the notes left behind by ancient alchemists of the weight of the reactants vs the weight of the products and their properties.
well its mythology of the northsmen, and icelanders sgas.
The Golden ratio and Fibonacci numbers.
Here's a brief description of the tomb.
In this text, the basic mathematical properties of the golden ratio and its occurrence in the dimensions of two- and three-dimensional figures with fivefold symmetry are discussed. In addition, the generation of the Fibonacci series and generalized Finobacci series and their relationship to the golden ratio are presented. These concepts are applied to algorithms for searching and function minimization. The Fibonacci sequence is viewed as a one-dimensional aperiodic, latice and these ideas are extended to two- and three-dimensional Penrose tilings and the concept of incommensurate projections. The structural properties of aperiodic crystals and the growth of certain biological organisms are described in terms of Fibonacci sequences.
It's pretty dry stuff.
