I have been working on a new book themed around the harmonic tuning theory found in the ancient world by Ermest G. McClain (since his The Myth of Invariance) and my own discovery of musical intervals first appearing in Matrix of Creation in 2002. We were able to collaborate through email for the few years between 2011 and his death, aged 96, in 2014. Ernest wanted to write a book about the Maya (Brave New World) knowing ancient near eastern harmonics and at one stage we were to do this but eventually he thought he could not get involved. The more I looked into the matter the more similar this work appeared to the work on the megalithic since units of measure belong to the same families, geometrical techniques seem to resemble the Egyptian, they were keen astronomers, had pushed the envelope in developing calendars, also built pyramids (typical of megalithic peoples at near equatorial latitudes, etc. Some of this leaked out early in various ways, especially my previous websites.

It was a hard sell to get published since the scope was very large and on over arching message or cluster of ideas was always being washed away by new perspectives and new work. Inner Traditions agreed to publish in August 2015, and by November I had moved from Scotland to Wales and so eventually wrote the book in Wales during 2016. It was notionally called Harmony of the World Soul but has now been called The Harmonic Origins of the World.

The title, catalogue entry (for Fall 2017) and cover design are all agreed and as an when more can be said .....
