Otto Maier

If you have been the proverbial fly on the wall in Descartes’s bed-room in La Flèche, in southern France, in 1636, you may have watched Descartes laying in bed observing you. His most remarkable idea came to him while observing a fly crawl along a curved path, which he thought about illustrating in terms of its distance from the walls....

The anima as a friend or soror mystica (mystical sister) has always played a great role in history. In the "cours d’amour" (courts of love) of René d’Anjou she even takes precedence over the wife. The term maîtresse actually means mistress or master. In the Middle Ages, for example, the worship of the anima led to courtly love, in which...

Otto Maier's secret texts. Is there more than meets the eye? Wali - Wili - Widi - Widar. In Eddic mythology Odihn is avenged on the Fenris wolf by Widar. Wili is named alongside We as Odhin's or Wotan's brother. According to the third poem in the Poetic Edda, the vafthrudnismal (Vafþrúðnismál). Widar and Wali (who avenges Baldur and Hödur)...

The problem of consciousness, alternatively put, is the problem of finding out how mental phenomena, such as thoughts and feelings, are related to physical occurrences in brains.

Maybe you suddenly knew that a certain event was going to happen in the future. Or, perhaps you saw a creature or a being that did not fi t the...

Sonntag, 30 April 1944. Walpurgis Sieh, ich sage dir ein Geheimnis; es ist schon die Zeit da, daß der Bräutigam seine Braut kröne; rate, wo liegt die Krone? Gen Mitternacht, denn in der Finsternis wird das Licht hell. Von wannen aber kommt der Bräutigam? Aus dem Mittag, wo die Hitze das Licht gebärt, und fährt gegen Mitternacht, da wird das Licht...

The break between the scientific comprehension of time as well as our general knowledge of time has bothered thinkers all through history. It has deepened since physicists have slowly stripped time of most of the characteristics we usually ascribe to it. Now the rift between the time of physics and the time of experience is approaching its logical conclusion, for...

According to Otto Maier, science thinks an octave too low and, due to its purely materialistic approach, neglecting the underlying energetic basis for all physical manifestation, has lost sight of the integrated whole. "Our cue in the search for these other dimensions, we might begin with the highest and most powerful form of natural energy experienced ...
