Jessie I. Weston, The Quest of the Holy Grail. London, Frank Cass, 1964.
Notes: See Richard Cavendish's book; Weston thought the Grail legend preserved rites and symbols of a secret cult descended from pre-Christian mystery religions, and/or gnostic sects of the Eastern Mediterranean. This view was not accepted in academia. In Cavendish, Appendix II, it is noted that Miss Weston and A. E Waite disputed. Weston's view became part of modern occult lore, and she was close to The Quest Society, which was founded in London in 1909 by G. R. S. Mead, who published translations of Gnostic and Hermetic, and Greaco-Egyptian works, Mead was earlier secretary of Madame Blavatksy, the founder of the Theosophists. The Quest Society believed in a "secret tradition", of wisdom granted by mystery religion, and high magic, in the early Christian world. There was a means of humanity becoming divine. Occultists believed such secret wisdom was known to the Knights Templar, and that the Templars were connected with the inner mystery of the Grail. A. E. Waite wrote on secret tradition, mysticism and the occult.

On other topics, see: Trialogues at the Edge of the West by Abraham and Sheldrake: Ralph Abraham, mathametician and leader in the new science of chaos, Terrance McKenna, shamanologist and ethno-pharmacologist, and Rupert Sheldrake, acclaimed biologist as they "trialogue" questions such as: How can chaos contribute to our lives? Is armageddon a self-fulfilling prophecy? How can scientists and mystics share the same planet? Belonging to the Universe by Fritzof Capra, and D. Steindl-Rast: The trailblazer in new science (Capra) and a contemporary Thomas Merton (Steindl-Rast) investigate the parallels between new paradigm thinking in science and religion, which together offer a remarkably compatible new view of the universe. Dossey, Recovering the Soul. Dossey synthesizes the ideas of eminent scientists with the time-honoured knowledge of visionaries and mystics to present convincing evidence for a non-logical, holistic view of mind and reality that can explain transcendental experiences. In short, he provides new proof of the existence of the soul. R. Neville, Eternity and Time's Flow. Neville's opening claim is simply indesputable, that nothing in ancient mythical cosmology, no matter how fantastic, rivals the sort of sweepingly imaginative cosmological claims issuing from the pens of today's most prominent theoretical physicists. R. Wilson, The New Inquisition. In this thought-provoking work, Wilson designates certain habits of repression and intimidation that are becoming increasingly commonplace in the scientific community today. Wilson also designates rigid beliefs that form the ideological superstructure. Further queries: Email: email@example.com

David Keys, Catastrophe. Arrow, 2000. ISBN: 0099409844. (In 536AD, a volcanic eruption meant our planet was enveloped by a cloak of lethal dust which changed the climate for decades. The sun's rays grew dim and total darkness reigned for days. It was a catastrophe of unparalleled proportions. Tens of millions of people died around the globe as a bubonic plague epidemic broke out. There followed waves of migration and the military, political and religious changes which the disaster set in motion re-ordered society throughout the world: the collapse of the Roman Empire, the invasion of the barbarian hordes and the rise of apocalypse-inspired Islam. It was the nearest humankind has ever come to Doomsday and it marked the real beginning of the modern era. The author sets the record straight by placing the pivotal point in world history as the mid-6th-century Dark Ages and shows how our fragile civilisation almost ended)

On Isaac Newton, mathematician: From an article in The (Queensland) Sunday Mail, 4 October, 1992: Sir Isaac Newton was obsessed with alchemy and biblical prophecies, says Prof Piyo Rattansi of University College, London. Privately, Newton believed that apart from the laws of gravity he propounded re the orbits of the planets, that they would soon crash into the sun unless God intervened on the side of Protestantism. Newton left behind over 350,000 words of notes, essays and translations of alchemical works and as many again on Biblical myths. Believed God had sent a comet to cause the Flood. He was obsessed with calling down spirits from Heaven, the apocalyptic prophecies of the Book of Revelations, and how these related to the mathematics of the Temple of Solomon. Newton was one of the "last of the magicians", is the way to explain how a scientist could think thus.
