"WISDOM

"
But where can wisdom be found?
And where is the source of understanding?
No man knows the way to it;
It is not found in the land of living men.
The depths of ocean say, 'It is not in us',
And the sea says, 'It is not with me.1
Red gold cannot buy it,
Nor can its price be weighed out in silver;
It cannot be set in scales against gold of Ophir,
Against precious cornelian or lapis lazuli;
Gold and crystal are not to be matched with it,
No work in fine gold can be bartered for it;
Black coral and alabaster are not worth mention,
And a parcel of wisdom fetches more than red coral;
Topaz from Ethiopia is not to be matched with it,
It cannot be set in the scales against pure gold.
Where then does wisdom come from?
And where is the source of understanding?
No creature on earth can see it,
And it is hidden from the birds of the air.
Destruction and death say,
'
We know of it only by report.1
But God understands the way to it,
He alone knows its source;
For he can see to the ends of the earth
And he surveys everything under heaven.
When he made a counterpose for the wind
And measured out the waters in proportion,
When he laid down a limit for the rain
And a path for the thunderstorm,
Even then he saw wisdom and took stock of it,
He considered it and fathomed its very depths.

And he said to man:
The reverence of the Lord is wisdom,
And to turn from evil is understanding.
(JOB 28)

DEDICATED
To Mr. Gann, a truly remarkable man, —Thanks. You were right. "If you seek, you will find." I
wonder if you ever knew what your work would do. I wish we could have met. I believe we
would have liked each other. We were just in different circles. Oh, well, as you said-"big circles and
little circles, old circles and young circles, past circles and future circles, will all come together
and 'square out' in time".
UNTIL THAT TIME,
RESPECTFULLY,
"
THE SEEKER"

PREFACE
This story is a true story of a strange and curious search for a
strange and curious secret of a strange and curious man who died
almost 30 years ago.
I have simply called myself " The Seeker " because we are all
seekers. The final "THAT WHICH IS SOUGHT" of all our seeking is
the same. However, we have many paths available to us. Some of us
seek this "THAT WHICH IS SOUGHT" in material things of different
kinds. Some of us seek "IT " in mysteries and secrets. My search
was in both areas simultaneously in the commodity markets and
the W.D. Gann trading philosophy. It is my hope that you can
benefit from my search and that I can show you a proper path to
take that will allow you both profitable and enriching
experiences in both the markets and in life.
As I said, "MY STORY " is a strange, curious one. When I try to
recall it and write it for you, I keep running into a
problem. The problem is-that the end of the story was the
beginning and beginning of the story was the ending-except it
was before the beginning. I know that I am not making myself
very clear, but that is as well as I can say it for now. Perhaps it
will clear up somewhat as I tell it.
The real beginning of "MY STORY11 was when I paid my "trusted
friend " for the Master Time Factor, which he did not have. He
just took my money and gave me nothing in return but a series of
practically meaningless numbers and rules, which were
devastating if used in the markets.
One of the reasons that made the story curious and strange
was that I already had the key to find the Master Time Factor,
but I hadn ' t looked at it or read it in years. I paid " my friend "
for something he didn 't give me, but I GAVE him the real thing
that I PAID him for, which he didn ' t give me. Very strange!

and in fact. . it is what we are all looking for when we desire the knowledge of the Master Time Factor. HE WILL HAVE TO TAKE THAT THING AND LIVE IT. Neither of us knew it at time.the living of this thing makes it comes alive. It is a strange. curious fact. rather than read it. EVEN THEN.You understand-I bought something from him but at the same time I gave him the thing that I was trying to buy from himthe thing that he did not have. It is in Appendix V in the Appendices. The thing that I am talking about is " The Seeker ' s Creed " . That thing was more useful than the Master Time Factor. Even today. two years later. but which I already had and gave to him. unless he happens to read these words. The reading of it is just words. he will not know the value of the thing that I gave him.

IT IS MORE VALUABLE THAN SILVER OR GOLD—OR THE MASTER TIME FACTOR! " THE SEEKER" August 8. and AND FRIENDS. Now.Until this very day "my friend" was the only person I had ever given My Creed to. 1983 . I give it to you. I hope you will PROVE IT-HOLD FAST TO IT-THEN GIVE IT TO YOUR FAMILY. CHILDREN.

I was in a transitional period of my life. For the previous eight years I had made my living in real estate brokerage and buying and selling for my own account. Farmland prices were climbing sharply in my area and most of the buying was by large farmers and professionals who kept bidding up the price of any farm that came on the market. I simply felt uncomfortable and could no longer bring myself to buy except on optionswhich I would sell the farm by the time the option expired or. I did not see how this ever escalating cycle could continue.D. In my opinion. one of the primary reasons for this was that the agricultural lenders were encouraging farmers to " get bigger " . but in 1978. I always have enjoyed dealing with farms and land and I still enjoy it today. There is some undefinable satisfaction for me in the process of buying and selling land. The financing was done primarily by the local farm lending agencies and in many cases the lenders were loaning 100% of the then inflated values. At this same time I began looking around for something to do which would allow me to buy and sell even in . bigger machinery and bigger farms. Gann was in the late spring of 1979. I began disposing of my inventory of farms and land and shedding myself of debt.CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION -MY STORY BEGINSThe first time I ever heard of W. I started with houses and then became mostly Involved with buying and selling farms and farmland for myself. if I hadn ' t been able to do so. I began to become concerned about the economy in general and the real estate market in particular. I would simply forfeit my option money. I had several good years financially in my real estate business.Looking back. because bigger was supposed to mean the same thing as efficient.

down markets. Someone. I did begin thinking about the commodity markets. So I had not been interested from that time in the stock market. though. I like buying and selling and I can operate in up times or down times. I decided then that I could do more with my money than putting it into stocks. the commodity markets. and as little overhead as possible. I wanted something that would require no inventories to be financed. here is an ideal' business for me. mentioned to me one day that I should consider the stock market. I began following the commodity quotes in the Wall Street Journal. Also. no employees to be responsible to. I had purchased some stocks several years earlier but they did not turn out to be that successful in regards to the return on my money. Then . or even better. and I thought. I had not been able to figure out a way to do this in the real estate market that I was used to operating in. I have forgotten whom.

I knew absolutely nothing about commodities. Obviously. I purchased my first book on commodity trading through a mail order advertisement.I sent off for some information about commodity trading from an advertisement. I began spending more time studying it than I did in my real estate business. And read it.a man who knew nothing about the markets at all.D. This led to my opening a trading account some few weeks later. but. here I was. I thought that it was just the fact that I had not had any experience or knowledge about trading and that once I learned the "language of the market" I would no longer have trouble understanding. I bought corn. Gann? So. I remember. So. Later. but I had lost more on that one trade than I had on any of my real estate transactions. I learned that others had that same difficulty too. I received my copy of "How To Make Profits-" on my birthday in June 1979 and I took it with me on a vacation that my family and I were embarking on.D. During the Summer of 1979 I studied my Gann book and Gann Commodities Course. I lost $4000 on that trade before I learned that the moves might not be big. I asked my-broker what should I start trading and he said corn because it was easy to trade and the moves were not that big. getting my introduction by W. Will you believe that the first book I ever purchased about commodity trading was a book by the name of "How To Make Profits In Commodities" by W. And read it. My first trade was in corn. I needed to learn something more about this commodity trading before I put out more money. I was "hooked " on Gann from the very beginning. Gann Commodities Course. The whole vacation I read that book. The vacation passed and I came home and ordered the W. This may have been a . I didn ’t even know to figure out the price fluctuations. So.D. Gann. The material in the book and the course seemed difficult for me to understand at times and in places.

good thing because the farm real estate market topped out in
the fall of 1979 and has been down every since. Our average
sales have gone from approximately $1900 per acre down to
the present average of approximately $1000 per acre. This
fall has indications of being even lower due to the number of
properties needing to be sold.
Going back to the summer of 1979, I read the commodity course
over and over. I tried to trade occasionally, but my results
were not satisfactory at all. I thought I understood most of
Mr. Gann ’ s rules and ideas but when I tried to put them into
practice they just did not work out that well. I couldn't tell
which top or which bottom to trade by. So I just kept
studying and at the same time I started buying other commodity
books and was studying them too. By this time I thought that I
had learned that the most important thing in the market was to
trade by following the trend of the market. The problem was I
could not determine the trend or by the time I did determine it,
it seemed to be going the other way.

I was trying to trade all the markets. When I saw something that
looked like a good trade, I would trade that market. I
really had no set of rules. I traded mostly by what I "felt" was a
good trade. My trading was not profitable by any means,
especially, if you consider the time and effort I was putting
into it.
I spent the fall and winter of 1979 studying Gann, occasionally
trading, never too successfully, but not losing any real
money. By this time I had ordered charts and advisory
services of all kinds. I had purchased many books about the
market. I had more money Invested In advisory services and
books than I had made in the market. They were all interesting but
none of them seemed to provide me with the necessary
knowledge to trade the markets successfully.
I had begun studying Mr. Gann's angles and squaring of price and
time. I had many problems deciding what was valid and not valid
with both the angles and the squaring of price and time. I had a
"Hewlett-Packard 38C" calculator which had a date function on it
that I found invaluable in calculating the number of days between
dates.
I decided to take the May Soybean Contract and learn all that I
could about it. I reconstructed a monthly and weekly chart
back to the time it first started trading. I calculated the
squares in monthly, weekly, and daily time periods from the
extreme low and high and from the opening of the contract in
1936. I could see some interesting relationships but always
in hindsight. I was not able to trade profitably or
consistently using the squaring of price and time. I spent
many weeks trying to find some method of using squaring of
price and time that I could make into a trading rule in line with
Mr. Gann's rules about price and time as I understood them. I
could not come up with anything. Then I looked at his rules
on angles. I ran angles on all the bean charts. I ran angles on

monthly charts back to 1936, weekly charts, and dally charts
as far back as I could get them. I spent considerable time
and money trying to get data that I could use and then making
dally charts by hand. Again, I saw some Interesting correlations
in hindsight, but nothing that I could "trade off of" in a
consistent manner. I wondered if the scale were distorted by
time and the difference in the range of prices today relative to
the time that Mr. Gann wrote his rules.
This led to my investigation of scales of price and their
relationship to Mr. Gann's rules. On a farm near town I had a
barn with a sixteen foot ceiling in it. I ordered Mr. Gann/s
original charts (weekly) that he had sold, then Mr. Lambert had
kept up to date and sold until Mr. Jones purchased the material
and which had been kept to the current time. These charts
were on the same scale on which Mr. Gann had based his rules.
I built a wall in my barn to accommodate these charts because it
was necessary for me to see what they looked like. It
required a wall 14 feet high for me to incorporate the May,
July, and November contracts. It was 53 feet long. The end
result of this was the same- interesting, but difficult to
utilize.

Next I tried trading by Mr. Gann’s rules based on his "mechanical
method and trend indicator". Again I had the same problemunsatisfactory results. Either I was using stops too close
or did not understand his rules properly. I must confess that I
was trying to mix all his other rules in at the same time.
Then I looked at his rules and comments on time. I had always
been intrigued by time and its meanings. Over the years I had
always had an interest in natural things and nature. History and
philosophy were of particular interest to me. Of course, I found
time periods everywhere. Too many of them in fact. I knew
that Mr. Gann said that the time factor was the most important
to observe and that when time was up look for the other
yardsticks to confirm time. My problem was that I could not tell
which time "was up" and which yardstick to look to confirm the
time. There were just too many times and too many yardsticks
for me.
Then I got into calendar time and market time. I concluded
from my reading of his material that he put greater emphasis on
market time than he did on calendar time because of his
descriptions about how to make charts. I went into great detail
and study of market time. I arrived at the same dead-end path
here. Then I studied calendar time. I did find that trend
changes of some nature were likely to take place
approximately every 45 days or so on the daily charts. The
problem was that they were usually a swing of some proportion
and again difficult for me to trade successfully.
Then I got into the squares and calculators and master charts.
They were like puzzles. I would work for days and weeks
trying to fit together one piece of knowledge from them. I
worked on them so much that I actually would see them in my
sleep. End result? Same old story!
Then in the summer of 1980 I attended a Gann trading seminar in

but. The seminar was wellplanned and it consisted of two parts. . especially the first part on time analysis. I took my wife and son with me. I Just could not believe that it provided any answers on how to trade the markets in a consistent and profitable manner. I listened to the part on astrology.Florida. I could not believe that converting a price to the longitude of a planet could possibly determine whether that particular price as based on the longitude of a planet would make top or bottom or meet resistance of any kind. The first part was an analysis of Mr. I knew that there were valid tenets and observations in all old and ancient beliefs but I just would not believe that the prices of beans and other commodities could be judged by these "signs and houses".) This presentation on astrology probably turned me off on astrology more than any other one thing. It was an interesting and useful seminar to me. The second part was a presentation on astrology. (I still can ’ t believe it today. Gann ’ s time rules as applied to the markets today. I could not bring myself to study something so ridiculous.

Three or four of those people have turned out to be very good friends and I would never have met them had I not attended the seminar. When I came back home the first thing I did was to order a "ticker" so that I could acquire that "experience" and learn in weeks what was to have taken years.The most useful and important benefit to me of this seminar was the people I met there. I got one that gave me hardcopy so that if I had to be out during part of the day I would be able to study each trade at the end of the day. I attempted to use all the angles and time periods and rules. Gann cautioned against short term in and out trading and that it was not fair to apply his rules to day trading.O. I chose the bonds because I had made some profits trading them (more than on anything else). While attending this seminar I heard several "daytraders" talking about how they used Gann successfully in their day trading activities. Gann's rules as applied by me just did not produce outstanding results. One thing that I definitely learned was that for me day . Again I found that Mr. For several months I day traded beans and bonds.B. and I would only need one Western Union line to get both of them. And I heard someone say that a ticker or quote machine allowed one to acquire years of experience in a few weeks by watching all of the trades and quotes every day. My success was marginal. I did get a great deal of market experience in a short time though. They were both on the C. but after deducting the cost of the quote equipment I could have made more money working some job paying minimum wages. I chose the beans because Mr. I really knew all the time though that Mr.T. Gann had recommended them and I had his rules available on them. I chose to follow May Soybeans and December T-Bonds. I made some profits on balance.

He has for seven years. I believe that day trading as I was doing is the biggest waste of time and money that I can imagine.He has no time at all to spend with his family. I ignored my family. I enjoyed it enough. I even had lunch at the ticker. I am sure that there must be someone who has been consistently successful as a day trader. He has not made any large amount of money but he continues to day trade every day that the markets are open. After the market closes he studies the charts and the markets until midnight and the wakes up the next morning and is at his ticker by 8:00 a. I urge you to learn from my experience and save your time. I have a friend that still day trades. After looking back. Your .. my business.trading was not the thing that I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I got to the point that I just wanted to trade all the time. I spent all my time at the ticker. my friends. I did this same thing when I had my ticker and I tell you IT IS NOT WORTH IT! Another thing that I learned about having a ticker is that I had the urge to try to trade too often. Even when I was not day trading but using the ticker to time position trades. too much. but I have never found that person. If you are the average person. I found that watching the ticker gave me the urge to try to trade every swing.m. Really.

I was able to find a man that worked for him at one time. . He felt that his father's work and life had been commercialized. but that it Just didn ’ t exist. In his office he had a large picture of his father hanging on the wall. He also told me several other things about his father. That picture dominated the entire office. Gann about his father's master time factor. I made a trip to see him.time is one of your most valuable possessions. I was able to locate Mr. I also did not feel inclined to ask him about any personal details of his father s life. I did ask him what he thought was the most useful part of his father s work. He also told me that "there was no such thing in science or nature called a perpetual motion machine". I was trying to find someone who actually knew him and that had taken personal instruction from him. Gann used. I did ask him as I was leaving if he could give me any advice about the markets or the use of the master time factor that Mr. He was a very nice and distinguished looking gentleman. He told me that his advice to me was invest in the stock and securities market. By this time I had purchased every book and course of his that I could find. You could tell that he was a man of quality and character. During the time that I was day trading and watching the ticker I kept studying all of Mr. But that gentleman did not want to talk. I have always desired my own privacy so I understood. under good competent counsel^ and to refrain from speculating in the commodity markets at all. that people had looked for one throughout history. For some reason I could not bring myself to ask Mr. Gann ’ s son. but I can tell you that it was very difficult not to ask him. Gann's books and courses. He was courteous and gave me thirty or forty minutes of his time and he was a very busy man. He told me that he thought that his father's research and work on time cycles was the most important work that his father had done.

This experience taught me that the experts that I had chosen lost money for me more quickly and in greater amounts than I had ever been able to do on my own. Moore. My set had most years from 1887 through 1950. Also during this time I heard of this person and that person that was supposed to understand the Gann method very well. I searched all over the country for certain books and publications. Gann and his trading philosophy. I made a special trip to Hew York to a well known astrology bookstore and I purchased $1800 worth of books on that one trip alone. the Andrews material.B. They were in fact said to be experts and were making their clients lots of money. Gann had on his reading list and the ones that he sold. Gann ’ s references to the various markets and the situations he was discussing. During my search for Mr. Since my trading was not remarkable by any sense of the word. I wanted to verify everything that I could about Mr. the top of the bean market) and the first day that he had received my funds he started buying beans as the market was going .T. I studied Elliott waves. Edwards & Magee. Hurst. Gann ’s master time factor.I made several trips around the country trying to locate various things and various people that could help me understand more about Mr. I purchased as near as complete set of C. I opened trading accounts separately and let two of these so-called experts trade at their discretion. With great effort I was able to find the books that I wanted. I tried to reproduce what I could of the books that Mr. annuals as I could find. and others. Most of them were out of print and were written during or before Mr. Gartley. Gann ’ s early writings.O. I had opened a trad ing account with one of these experts in November of 1980 (you remember. Drew. Wyckoff. I purchased and perused over 2000 books and manuscripts. As a matter of fact. I also purchased every market classic that I could find about the market.

Unthinkingly. I did not learn then that he had in fact bought even another contract of beans after another limit down move. The rule he used was if three days limit down. Since none of my experiences in learning to trade the markets by using Mr. He didn't even say he was sorry! These experiences led me to my current trading rule #1-NEVER ALLOW ANYONE ELSE TO TRADE FOR ME. I had become that "wrapped-up" in my effort to find it. He said the market was too wild to use a stop and that it certainly had to recover and we would get back some of the losses and stand aside. He lost several thousand dollars for me in less than two weeks. This one was not a day trader but one who traded in and out of the markets quickly and seldom held a position for more than three days. He had been in the markets for years and really knew how to trade. Gann's trading philosophy had worked out very well for me. In five days of trading for me this expert had lost more money for me than I had lost in my entire time of trading commodities. had begun a concerted effort to learn what the master time factor was and how it was to be used. 1980 at which time they opened limit down and then immediately after moved up for the secondary rally at the top. The upturn did not come so he bought more as it continued limit down. I asked him if we shouldn't just take my loss and get out and what kind of stops did he plan to use. The trades made no sense at all and he could not tell me why he made them.limit down for the preceding three days. buy for an upturn. I am sure that I exp ected it to be a magic formula that would allow me to conquer the markets and tell exactly when each and every top and bottom would occur. I. I thought that if I could only acquire the master time factor then everything else would fall in to place. He said he was sorry. This intense desire for . Since I sometimes learn slowly I tried a third expert. He sold all my contracts of beans on the opening on the day of December 12.

as my special day. it was the spring of 1981.something that I did not even know what it was led me to lose touch with the prudence that I had been blessed with in every other area of my life. because I believe that it was named just for me. . April 1st used to be called April Fool's day and I will always remember April 1. I had actually hypnotized myself into believ ing that this master time factor was the greatest and most desired formula in the world. and April 1st was approaching. 1981. Well.

I never had this problem in my real estate business. Gann's master time factor. fine.CHAPTER 2 DISASTER FOR AN APRIL FOOL! During the late winter and early spring of 1981 I was riding out the real estate recession and pursuing with great zeal Mr. I knew that my mental attitude was not correct and I tried to compensate by leaving the house during the day and avoiding watching the ticker. I never thought about it with any remorse. I had begun reading the many books . read. but leaving the ticker on and coming home after the market closed. I felt angry at times if trades didn't go my way. if not. I notice how frequently during the day that prices would trade against one of these critical points on a calculator. but as often as not it would not hold. I felt guilty if a move started and I missed it. although I still had my ticker and I still spent many hours watching the markets trade. If I got the property. I was no longer day trading but I had the constant urge to be in the market. If I offered to sell a property to a person. Gann had used astrology in trading but I could not bring myself to get into the study of astrology with any fervor. I continued to buy old books. I knew that Mr. I was becoming obsessed with the idea that if I could just acquire the master time factor that it would solve all my trading problems. then studying the tape at night and making a trading decision to buy or sell based on that day s tape action. I didn't want them to buy something that would not be beneficial to them. I had quit day trading. experiment with the various calculators and master charts. As I told you earlier. fine. However. I gave them my lowest and best price and if it were good for them to buy. if not. I simply decided the best price that I could offer a person and made that offer. This worked better and my monthly statements began looking better. then back off and sometimes the price would hold.

I had started studying all I could find on cycles. I kept reading all kinds or market books and studying astrology-but never in any depth. Gann said it indicated to him when certain cycles would repeat. I knew that somehow the master time factor must be associated with astrology but I could not find a verifiable clue. We had never been to each other's home. We had shared information and insight with each other on several 8 . Cycles of any and all kinds. This man was a very knowledgeable man about Mr. My trading was Improving because I was trading less often and staying in a profitable trade slightly longer. but we had many phone conversations over those months. I knew that the master time factor had to be a cycle of some nature because Mr. In March of 1981 I received a phone call from a man that had come to be a close friend as a result of meeting him at different Gann seminars around the country.on astrology that I had acquired in New York and other places around the country. Gann's works and this man like myself had spent many hours and weeks studying Gann.

) Now. He then went on to tell me how much he wanted for this Information. Also. By daily practicing my creed. I look to the present and the future. I was able to finally get to this state of mind where I am oblivious to past injustices of this type. He called me that March night and he was very excited. I had shared all of my findings with him. IT WAS STAGGERING! SUBSTANTIAL! He assured me that it would work in all the markets but that he had proved it in the one particular market and that if I followed this formula and information exactly as he taught it to me and if I would save a copy of my brokerage statements so that he could verify that I had properly followed it. Gann used to trade the markets and what he had used to make his predictions and that he was sure it would call any market of any type. (except when I am forecasting the trend of the market. he did not offer to share this knowledge with me. He said that he had the most wonderful news! He said that he had finally found what Mr. he had proved it in one particular market. He said that his criteria for choosing these four prospects were that they must have really studied Gann for many long and hard hours and that they must be honest and promise not to reveal this information to anyone outside their immediate families.occasions. getting back to the phone call from "my friend". He further said that he had carefully chosen these four people. these four persons would have to sign a legally prepared agreement which imposed monetary penalties on them if they should ever reveal this information. In this story I will simply call him "my friend" because I have no desire to mention his name and cause embarrassment to him. although I can assure you that it was not easy for me to come to this state of forgiveness. He called to tell me that this was the most valuable Information that he had ever encountered and that he had decided to sell this to only four people. he would guarantee my . Although.not the past. which you will find in the Appendices.

I want to thank each one of these two people for the help they gave me in my search for the master time factor and also during the aftermath of my April Fool s Day fiasco. We had promised each other without saying it that if any one of us ever found the master time factor we would let the other two know what it was. These two people were (and are) fine people of outstanding character and quality. I know that my story so far does lead you to question that . I told him that was more money than I had ever dreamed of paying for anything. I had always been a prudent common-sense type man. Up until I began trading the commodity markets and studying the Gann material.money back. The three of us had spent many many hours studying Mr. He told me who they were and two of them I knew well. They were the only two people that I could talk to after the disastrous episode took place. Gann works and we had shared all the different insights that we each had. because I had become very good friends with them too. He told me to think about it for a few days and to discuss it with the other three people to whom he had offered it. I had met them at my first seminar in Florida and we had attended other ones together.

I believe now. We trusted him completely. Mr. I would not have even thought about the offer twice. in looking back that I had set myself up for something like this to happen to me because I had become overbalanced. but we all wanted the master time factor and we all believed in the Integrity of "my friend". I called these other two friends of mine that were being offered this same information. I will say that if any other man other than the man whom I call "my friend" had made this offer to me. "My friend 11 did not actually call this formula the master time factor but he implied that it was it. I think we sometimes lose touch with reality when we become obsessed with anything. the fact that he didn ’ t still did not make me realize that if he had really been my friend he would not have tried to sell me something that we both had worked so hard to find. as I told you earlier I was "primed" because I wanted the master time factor so bad and then I really trusted "my friend" and although I thought that he would have offered it to me for nothing as I would have done for him. I would have immediately said no. We did not want to put out the kind of money that "my friend" wanted. Our balance is destroyed and we end up mesmerizing ourselves into a false condition where we see our world as reflecting this mesmerized version of what we want to believe. I thought about this phone call and offer for several days. We were planning to go to a seminar being held in Chicago during the . At any rate. None of us who had been offered the material really knew what to do. I had searched so long and so hard for this master time factor that I had lost touch with reality and common sense. But. "The Tunnel Through The Air11.statement but it is true. Gann described something similar to this condition in his book. I don ’ t know what it is about the commodity markets that allow ordinarily prudent supposedly intelligent people to make some of the blunders that they make when it comes to the commodity market. They were excited too about the prospects of having the master time factor revealed to them.

of course. I have a fine son of whom I am very proud. She is a remarkable woman. seminars more than anyone else's. She. I have always been able to make a living for my family and have plenty of time to read and pursue the things in life that I enjoy doing. This country may be the last hope for mankind. the three of us decided that we would get together in Chicago and then decide what we would do about this offer. She has always left the business decisions to me and never questioned my judgment. I have had many blessings in life. had sacrificed many hours of her time so that I could spend all of my days and many nights studying Gann when I should have spent that time with my family. I live in the greatest country in the world. I could tell that she was not 10 . Anyway.first week in April. I talked with her about this offer and asked what she thought about it. But my greatest blessing has been my wonderful wife. I have always enjoyed Billy’s. This seminar was being held by Mr. Billy Jones of Lambert-Gann Publishing Co. I have always had good health.

. then this whole effort of writing this story will have been worthwhile. I had already made up my mind that I was going to pay this SUBSTANTIAL amount of money for this information that "my friend" led me to believe would be the elusive. I left for Chicago to meet my friend and unfortunately for me. He had me sign the agreement that he had prepared by an attorney near his home. He said again that it would work on any market. I had not thought about April Fool's Day since I was a child. my readers. I was to meet "my friend" on April 1st and the seminar was going to start the next day. He assured me that if I wanted my money back at anytime I could ask him for it and he would return it to me if I felt that the formula did not work as he said that it would.impressed at all. from trying the same path I took. but since he had only proved it on one market that would be the market that we would need to trade. But my wife's mentioning of it was forecasting a coming event for me. I accept the responsibility of this very poor judgment on my part. I just pushed open the door and ran into the " room " because I wanted the promised contents with a desire that squelched all reason. I blame no one other than myself. One of the reasons that I am writing this story for you. I could have looked in and seen what was IN there. The door was ajar before I entered. When I asked my wife what she thought I should do about the offer. is so that you will be able to profit from my mistakes and if I can save just one of you. This was the opening of the door to the most foolish and most painful room of experience that I have ever entered In my lifetime. legendary master time factor. I met "my friend" in Chicago as agreed on APRIL Fools DAY. I had promised "my friend" that I would meet him in Chicago where we would both be attending the LambertGann Seminar. I gave him this SUBSTANTIAL amount of money that we agreed on and he again promised me my money back if I were not satisfied. the day I was to meet my friend and accept or reject his offer was APRIL FOOL'S DAY. I didn't look. she would only remind me that April 1st.

Even though I accept the full responsibility for my actions in regards this most strange and sad transaction. As a matter of fact I lost more money following his trades until at the end before I really accepted how stupid the whole thing was. natural law says that "my friend11 has sown the wind and must reap the whirlwind. the agreement called for me to actually trade this thing according to his recommendations. although he promised outside of the written agreement to give me my money back any time I requested it. That part is not something that I can do anything about. but yet allowing you to have the full story that I promised you. In order to bring this part of my story to as rapid conclusion as possible. I can simply say that "my friend" took my money and gave me a formula of gibberish in return. I began taking the exact opposite of what he told me and then I recovered some of the money I had lost following the trades. either now or later. 11 . in order to ever get my refund. His trades were constantly losing trades in his one market that he had proved. To make it worse.

Well. I had been asleep for a long time. This newsletter sold for $16. Well. I have never heard anymore from "my friend" until one of my real friends (one of the other three prospects-they were all too well-balanced and too smart to fall for the APRIL FOOL'S disaster) sent me a copy of a newsletter he had seen. Yes.-. until the bank said that they had never heard of him. I am trying to speed over this part of my story as fast as I can and I am really ashamed that I ever fell for something this ridiculous. (There are some numbers for you.no having a nightmare. but. Gann fans!). He even gave me the name of the bank. I finally realized at that exact time that I would never get one penny of my SUBSTANTIAL amount of money back from "my friend". and dreaming. Gann's Master Time Factor had brought me to this point.I cannot tell you the pain and frustration that this experience caused me. while you ponder on how you would feel if you had been so foolish as me (I'm sure none of you will ever have to worry about that! Will you?) . But that he had done it with the understanding that he might have to recall the donation if he had to refund the money to a "client" that had given him the money. Finally he told me that he had donated my SUBSTANTIAL amount of money to a children's hospital near his home. I laboured on with this whole affair and made every effort that I could to get "my friend" to give me my SUBSTANTIAL amount of money back. thank God. but it is not easy for me write this. let's end this chapter here. He told me all kinds of stories about how he was working on it. In two Issues of this newsletter the entire formula that "my friend" had sold me (and promised in writing In my agreement not to sell to anyone else other than his children) was printed in this newsletter that I could have purchased for $33«33. "My friend" told me that he was arranging to get the money back and that a local bank was acting as the director of fund raising for this hospital. Apparently "my friend" had sold his formula to the newsletter too. one day I called the bank and learned that they had never heard of "my friend". my search for Mr. I had at last awakened. Gann’s Master Time Factor. dear reader. I had made the biggest single mistake of my lifetime. I promised you the true story of my search and I have to relate this part of it to you. where I still believed all the lies that "my friend" told me. He just promised and promised that he was going to do it. Well.67 per issue. This was the "final blow" to my ego and was the one thing that seemed to show me just how much time and money I had wasted on my search for Mr. After this drug on for several weeks.

of "my friend" had left me pretty well devastated. I have been putting all capital letters to emphasize that SUBSTANTIAL is Indeed what I mean to say. I may not have made myself clear to you up to this point. but when I have been writing SUBSTANTIAL money every time I referred to the money that I had given "my friend". mental attitudes. and stupidity along with the aid and assistance. I had plenty of life insurance but I had not made at that time the necessary provisions for any unforeseen long term illness. the health problem that I had developed (a kidney problem) did not leave me too secure with the long term financial security of my family.I had arrived at a pretty low emotional state. I hope that I have given you a clear enough picture of the things I was thinking about at 14 . On top of that I developed a health problem in the late summer of 198l-all at the same time that I had finally realized the enormity of my erroneous ways. My wrong habits. mental state. So I had this whole situation to contend with in the middle of the most severe real estate downturn that I had ever lived through. Needless to say. and financial state. Most of my remaining assets were In real estate.

It is in the Appendices. I had forgotten about "The Seeker's Creed" in my search for the master time factor. mentally. "The Seeker's Creed" was what I had used as the FOUNDATION or BASE for my real estate business and I realized at this point that what I. one of the strange parts of this story again.this time. low physically. What I really needed at this particular time of my life in the late summer of 1981 was some type of sustenance for my spirit or soul. Now. None of these beliefs are products of my mind. I took it out of the drawer of my desk in my library in May of 1981 and had a copy of it made just as it was (I had typed it for myself on my typewriter when I . but they were compiled by me for me at another low point of my life when I was searching for direction in my life. For a period of my life I had consciously tried to live by them and I had read them faithfully every day and practiced them in ray real estate business. I will tell you more about later. Our spirit is what vitalizes us and my vitality was low at this time. But for some strange reason. In fact. I never had intended that my creed be anything other than a personal declaration of my beliefs that I had proved would work. it seemed that I had forgotten everything in my search for the master time factor. I have also called my creed "The Seeker’s Creed" so that you can adopt it for yourself should you so desire. Then I thought of my creed. But I had forgotten my creed during the last few years and from the time that I had begun my "Gann Voyage" in 1979 until the time I pulled it out in the fall of 1981 I certainly never read it nor did I practice it. "The Seeker's Creed" is an article of declaration of beliefs that I compiled over ten years ago. They were the result of my lifetime of reading and experience. needed was a new strong foundation based on common sense and proven natural laws If I were going to survive this situation I had "built" for myself. and spiritually.

I had never given this to anyone else outside my immediate family before nor since until this very day when I am including it in this booklet. Isn ’ t that the strangest thing? Its almost like an opening and closing of a cycle or circle and its almost like the creed and the master time factor go together. I then sent the copy I had made to "my friend" as a token of appreciation for his selling me what I thought was the master time factor. I had to go down town to get a copy made and then bought my sheets back and put them in my three ring binder and put my notebook (my creed) back in my desk drawer. they do? 15 . Who knows? Perhaps.originally wrote it and I had spelling errors and typeovers in it).

That problem was 17% and 18% interest rates.CHAPTER 4 "YOU MUST OBSTRUCT" "BEFORE YOU CAN CONSTRUCT" In my earlier years when I first started out in business and in ray real estate activities I started out buying and improving and reselling residential properties. I went back to the real estate business with new vigor. In other words I planned to hold fast to that which was good.once in the morning and the last thing at night. I decided first of all that I would lay aside for the time being any study of the markets. of Gann material. I closed out my commodity trading accounts and had all funds sent home. (I live in a small town). I gave notice to terminate the lease on my ticker. I passed on the farms because there just wasn ’t that much market. When my health problem that I told you about in the last chapter improved and I began studying my creed again I decided to start all over with what I had proved in the past. and any trading in the commodity markets. and sent it back. packed it up. I went right back to the beginningresidential properties. I tried to practice it where I could every day. I would. I realized that people wanted to acquire better housing but it was extremely difficult for first time buyers and young people and slightly less difficult for those . Then I grew into buying and Improving farms and land and subdividing farms into tracts and reselling. People were just not moving around very much. I was literally "sick of it". And I did not want to take the risk necessary to buy and subdivide -a farm. I read my creed every day. This time I was faced with a new problem that I didn't have several years ago when I was dealing with houses. I determined to return to those things which had worked for me in the past. If I could work off an option. This was in the fall of 1981 and we were still in the worst real estate market that I had encountered during my business life.

What is it that makes a man ignore what he is successful at and suited for-pursue something else that appears more golden.who already had equity built up. I practiced my creed in my business every day just as I had done several years ago. I tried to be the buyer. I started with the lower priced range and all the older. Even in the so-called tough housing market of late 1981 and first part of 1982 by the practicing of my creed I had a good period financially. So I started trading. So I looked for needs in the only place I knew to look-the real estate market. I tried to be the seller. Then I got back into farms as well as houses and from January 1. but yet causes him 16 . I would try to satisfy any real estate need as well as I could. 1982 through March 30. my creed said that to get supply you must open a channel and to open a channel you must do what? You create a need or find a need. If the person in need needed to sell. lower assumable rates properties that I could find. 1982 I had sold a little better than one million dollars worth of real estate on commissions. if the person in need needed to buy. (This is a good place to ask you a question that I have often wondered about.

ripping out these bad habits and attitudes and thinking and perspectives did not just come to me then. He was working on a job when I found him.1' This statement almost floored me.) Now. through pain. if you want it. All the things that I said to you in the last chapter about tearing out. It came to me then that this was like the squares or building blocks that I mentioned in the last chapter. This contractor said "yes ma'm. when he could do so well Just performing his useful function? A personal example-me and the real estate market and me and the commodity markets. tearing down.) I felt good again and hoped that I had learned something about life and the markets and most of all something about myself. (Yours too. It came to me as the sudden revelation when this contractor told the lady who was worried about her home falling in on her. I had purchased a property that I intended to remodel and then sell. I had begun to destroy the wrong attitudes and perspectives that I had allowed to develop in me. Our lives and market habits and living habits are the same as the home needing remodeling. it shor looks terrible but you must fust dee-struct fo you can con-struct. and seeing her and him standing in the awful looking mess that was her home and all the rubble that looked like it could never be put back into anything useful again.losses and misery. YOU MUST FIRST OBSTRUCT BEFORE YOU CAN CONSTRUCT. I saw clearly for the first time that if I needed remodeling-AND I DIDI-then I would have to tear myself down the way I described to you in the last chapter. and the lady that he was working for was complaining about how much of her house he had torn out and how bad it looked. now. I saw then too that I had already made the proper start by getting back to the useful part of my experience and life that had worked for . But I was doing this tearing down without knowing it. One day in early 1982. and not knowing what else to do. frustration. I went to talk with this contractor that specialized in remodeling. I was back at a good foundation or base-My Creed.

namely trying to live and conduct my business by my creed.me in the past. and came back to it. Precisely where the ancients had always said it would be found.) I also knew at this precise time that I would some day find the master time factor of Mr. I also resolved not to ignore my real function. and not to go out on any wild searches for "master anything". I had also proved that my real estate activities were sound and useful and that I would use them as my base or foundation for providing a living for ray family and a service for my community. 17 . I resolved to always In the future to conduct my real estate activities and my personal life as nearly as I could on the natural laws in my creed. I had proved my creed for ten years. and found that it still proved itself to be true. Gann ’ s and this is when I resolved that when I did find it I would make an effort to reveal it to others that may have searched long and hard for it. I had proved that my creed was good and sound and so I wo uld ho ld fa st to it an d use it fo r th e b asis (ba se o r foundation) of my life in the conduct of my affairs (the building of my squares of living blocks). left it. I knew now that I had something so valuable that everything I needed could be supplied by the practice of what I already had right here within me (my creedlearned and lived-inside of me.

I would work out a methodical plan of action that would allow me to do the se things by depending on my self from w ithin my self.

I would work as the ancients would say "In Silence. bu t w ith a di fferen t attitud e and perspective. would I allow myself to fear the future about the economy or good times or bad times. I would go back to the commodity markets but this time with a different perspective and attitude. Gann ’ s works. Through Silence. and I would tear down everything that I could not prove good. I would only do this in my spare time when it WOULD NOT DISRUPT OR HARM MY GOOD SOLID FOUNDATION OR BASE. I would go back to my s earch fo r the mas te r time fact or. I would do exactly what the contractor had done with the ladies house. I would try to Isolate myself from discussion of the markets and discussion of Gann material. Now through living my creed I had the confidence to know that I would do the same things in bad times that I would do in good times. I would not pay any attention to what this person thought about the markets or what that person thought about the markets. No longer. I would meet the demand of others by being supply. no. I knew it was sound. AND HOLD FAST TO THAT WHICH WAS GOOD. I had proved it. I would go back to studying Mr. I would take the commodity markets.

Circumstances related to you earlier had already caused me to tear down and destroy those things In myself that I had to eliminate. I have indicated to you in the dedication of this . I HAD ALREADY PROVED THAT. I didn't really know anyone including the Gann experts or maybe I should say particularly the Gann experts that I had met or heard of that the Gann material had really made successful. the trend indicators as I had understood and tried to use them hadn't helped me. I would have to do it myself. I would have to have a better understanding of it than I had previously had or I couldn't use it. at this point I would have to throw away the entire Gann trading method. I had always felt that the missing element which would provide the "key" to unlocking the usefulness of his material was that same old master time factor. The only people that I knew that had made any money on the Gann material were people who were selling information or seminars or advisory letters about his material. In fact they had not worked much better than the pathetic formula that "my friend" had sold me. and hold fast to that which was good. Until I had that key I knew that the rest of his material was useless to me in trading the markets. huh?) At any rate. I also knew that if I were ever going to find the master time factor. now. No one was going to give it to me or sell it to me. I knew that if the Gann material was ever going to provide a basis for a successful trading system for me. the calculators and master charts hadn't helped me. Gann's rules or they simply did not work for me. (Me too. and the time periods that I had tried to use hadn't helped me. The angles hadn ’ t helped me. I HAD ALREADY PROVED THAT TOO.CHAPTER 5 I BEGIN AGAIN I had not understood Mr. the squares hadn't helped me. if I were going to prove all things. Now I needed to do the same thing with the Gann material.

using the Gann material. I had it back now) dictated that if I were going to use only those parts of his work that I had proved useful. I learned them well. I DID EXACTLY THAT-I THREW THE WHOLE THING OUT. what do you think I did this time? You know me pretty well by now. In the commodity markets "good" means profits. I was determined to acquire the ability to trade the markets. Gann. common sense (yes. Now my lessons had taught me that if it wasn't good. I hadn't made any before. The M5 day calendar period. then I would have to THROW THE WHOLE THING OUT! Now. the painful way. I learned them the hard way. I wouldn't build on a bad foundation. Nevertheless. I told you that I had learned my lessons. you are wrong this time. why should I expect to make them now doing the same things that I did then. don’t you? No. The bible says that you will know a tree by its fruit. Actually. I opened 19 . I did retain one single item of the Gann material.booklet how I felt about Mr. I incorporated it into my rules. dear reader.

I quit keeping up with quotes during the day and would only update my charts the next morning. but simply to make profits of a good return on my Investment. I don't propose at this point to go into my trading rules. I practiced patience by having a rule that I could only enter the market on a new position on one certain day of the week and only under certain conditions. I was gathering materials that I could use in building my successful trading program. for the first time since I had been trading I had a net profit for the entire year. I made every effort to incorporate into these rules the opposite attitudes and perspectives that I had earlier. I had a rule that I would be in no more than two different positions at the same time. I quit discussing the markets with people. When I found something useful I kept it. All of my rules were just simple common sense rules that would help me be with a trend and get me out soon if I were wrong. I was trading now not to make a living. Most of the rules kept me from trading during the time that the markets were opened. I traded this account based on some simple common sense rules. Since I had so much more free time now that I wasn't looking up squares and time periods and divisional points of price and . and secondarily to learn more about attitude of myself and to find useful things that would work in the markets. At the end of 1982. you "know what some of them would be just by reading my story up to this point. For example. but. I also had a rule that if an account had losses for two straight months I would close the account out. or for my ego. I would save up the news during the week and only read it on the weekends.a trading account In the spring of 1982. which ever was reached first the profit or the loss. I limited myself to a situation where if I reached a certain profit that was three times the loss that I had allowed myself for a given month then I would quit trading for the month. a killing. I had spent very little time trading the markets that year. In other words the less time I spent trading the more money I made.

I had not wasted my time in studying the Gann material though.angles and calculators and getting quotes every hour. Yes. because I had re-discovered the value of my creed. It was supposed to be in the Library Of Congress but they could not find it. letters. Gann had ever written except for a small copyrighted booklet entitled "Senator Warren Harding of Ohio Will Be Our Next President". I had all his published materials and several pieces of documents. I decided to spend that free time looking for one thing. You may not have ever heard of this booklet. I knew that without it and maybe even with it that the rest of the Gann material was worthless to me as far as trading the markets. I had never heard of it either. But I found it listed in the copyright section in Washington D. Gann and his work. Gann. The master time factor. Well. and you remember that this was the most valuable knowledge that I ever found.G. I had copies of every piece of material that I had been able to acquire about Mr. 20 . I had every piece of all of the published material that Mr. as I said. you know me. Yes I went to Washington to see what I could find out about Mr. I told you I had looked hard.

For example. Anyway. I will tell you about Mr. So. This process began to give me a sort of mindset to the language and expressions of Mr.and unpublished materials. I checked to see if he used different words at different places to say the same things. I checked on all these language aspects. and vocabularies were areas of great potential for learning about anything. I had talked with a man that knew who Mr. I guess its like thinking that a physician would not have a physician. Gann. I even went to Miami once to interview the people in the neighborhood that Mr. I also wanted to see why he used them where he did and were they used for any other reason than what they appeared to be on the surface. But they would not have necessarily meant the same thing to me. Gann's astrologer in a later chapter. I would have ordinarily understood them differently. encyclopedias. I knew that my grandparents had expressions that were quaint to our expressions today. . I looked the different words up in the dictionary and compiled a glossary of sorts. Gann and I began to see some new meanings to things that he said that I had earlier understood differently. Gann’s personal astrologer was. I found that when he used "or" between two words those two words meant the same thing to him. I made a list of words that were different. Gann lived in his latter years. I decided to use what I had and analyze it in ever way that I could. First I analyzed every word that he used when he talked about time. I had notes that I had made in interviews with different people that knew Mr. Also. but meant the same to him. what I am trying to say is that I had a pretty fair collection of material written by Mr. I found that dictionaries. Gann would have a personal astrologer. I never knew until then that Mr. Gann. The next thing that I did was to analyze his quotations and see how many of them that I could find. I wanted to see if any of those old expressions had different meanings than they do today. They give you concise brief accurate descriptions about any specific word idea or concept.

That thing was the introduction of the Stock Index Futures to the commodity markets. I had read "Truth of The Stock Tape" and M45 Years In Wall Street" about 30 times each and I had pretty well memorized certain parts of them. By understanding the precise meaning of words and concepts and the various shades of meanings I began to understand better and I began to sense some subtle things that I had not earlier comprehended. Because of my lack of interest in the stock market I had never spent much time studying Mr. And I had read and studied the Stock Market Course some 20 or 30 times. Another thing also came to my attention about this time (Spring and Summer of 1982). Oh. Gann’s stock market books and his stock market course. I told you earlier that I had never been interested in buying and selling stocks themselves.Frequently I found that my understanding of a word or concept was much more vague and ambiguous than I had realized. By looking up important words and even simple words I began to have a clearer mental picture of concepts. But I had always read and studied them looking for clues regarding time and 21 .

OUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE WORLD AROUND US IS A REFLECTION OF THE WAY WE HAVE LOOKED AT THE WORLD. . If we learn through habit to look at something positively or negatively. they all too often turned out to be the true thing of VALUE. then continue to practice that way of looking at something. If I may digress again this brings up another curious part about life to me. I s i m p ly r ej ec t e d t hi s w i th ou t t h i n k i n g a b o u t i t . that book or idea that wasn't worth pursuing. it means that we have built on a FOUNDATION OF KNOWLEDGE that is wrong. that piece of real estate that I thought would never be worth anything. we must tear out that foundation and replace it with a good one. that person whom I thought wouldn't amount to anything. I have noticed it over and over in my life. And we have the tendency to reject them because we think that they have no value. In other words our understanding or comprehension is a reflection of the way we look at something rather than the truth about something. then after a period of time. Otherwise. If we viewed them positively our understanding would reflect to us our viewing rather than the truth. I was not interested in the information about the Stock Market. we stay in a vicious cycle that grows worse with time. Therefore. The way to avoid this jaundiced view of reality is be AWARE. I w as n ’ t interested in what he had to say about the Dow-Jones or the Stock Market. If we have problems seeing things as they really are. Be aware that we have this tendency. I have noticed and I am sure that you have. that the very thing that we reject as being of no value to us frequently turns out to be the most valuable of all-THE BUILDER'S STONE-lf you will. Reading and living by my creed will make you aware. Why is this? I think that the answer lies in the area of what I call "mindset".trying to apply this information to the commodity markets. our understanding and our comprehension of these things tends to take on the nature of the way we viewed them over time.

Again the reason I had rejected it was not that it wasn't important. Because this would be where I would find the master time factor. By doing this. I was BLIND to its value until it appeared in a form that I could see through the "filters" that I had put on myself. Gann wrote more books and material on the Stock Market than he did on the commodity markets. Now. I realized one day that I had the opportunity to study Gann ’ s stock market books and material and that I could trade t h a t i n f o r ma t i on i f i t p r o v ed us e f u l b y tr a d in g th e in d e x futures. This filter of course filtered my vision but as I said above my vision turns out to be my understanding or comprehension or knowledge. it is obvious that Mr. I have to tell you that when the stock index futures started trading. But I had rejected the stock market material except as I could apply it to the commodity markets.Now. The reason was that now it was acceptable to me because it wasn't the stock market anymore but it was now the commodity market. but simply that I VIEWED it as not important or useful. I had rejected the BUILDER !S STONE. 22 . To show you how our view of things change and why they do. do you see why I was willing to look at it now and saw value to it where I didn't see it before.

Now I went after the rejected "builder's stone" with great energy. or my ATTITUDE towards it had). . If you don ’t get anything else out of my material. Remember seeing and finding the TRUTH will make you FREE. It is our attitude that gives us our vision and it is our vision that allows us to see (know) what we do and we can only profit in the markets and in life as we react to our knowledge which is based on our vision which is based on our attitude. If you have already seen this then it doesn't mean as much to you as it does to me. I guess truths learned mean more than truths known already and I learned this one with much difficulty. Perhaps you have already realized this and it doesn't see-m important to you. The same material now had new meaning to me. if you can just understand what I am trying to say. There were many things to study and learn. it hadn’t changed. My "mindset" or attitude or vision now allowed me the freedom to search for the truth. Tills previous sentence is the most important truth that I will be able to offer you in this booklet. (This is the same material. it will be worthwhile to you. I had.

This is the feeling I had when I received the first revelation. so I will just drop it here. You will think I have taken leave of my common sense again when I tell you what it was that caused this feeling. The thing that caused this feeling was a quotation that Mr.CHAPTER 6 THE STOCK MARKET. I happened across two items in particular that were sudden bursts of revelation to me. this sudden dawning of inspiration almost overwhelms me.MR. I am able to get away from all distractions down there. Under the title there were headings of BOOK I and then PREPARATION FOR TRADING. It read. In ray renewed pursuit of the master time factor via study of Mr. it really didn't mean that much but for some subjective reason lights flashed all over Inside me. AND ME. Gann’s stock market material which I had previously rejected as related in the last chapter. It is difficult for me to put this into words because there was no logical reason for me to be excited about seeing this for the first time. however near to his eyes is the object. Gann used in his book. ASTROLOGY. Under this was a quotation from Emerson. I guess I am a strange person but when I receive insight of a clear nature about something that has troubled or perplexed me for a long period of time.MINDSET. I told you that I had been looking up and studying the quotations that he had used in his books and courses. One day I went downstairs and picked up the above mentioned book and just absent-mindedly opened it to page 1. and he shall be never the wiser-the . GANN. I still am not able to describe this feeling to you appropriately. I have a library and study downstairs on a semi-basement level in my home. "No man can learn what he has not preparation for learning. Maybe you understand what I am trying to say. "Truth Of The-Stock Tape". A chemist may tell his most precious secrets to a carpenter.

I tell you. time cycles. The seeing of this and the feeling that it gave me to see this clearly was overpowering. time was not up. Gann's "time periods. time had not run out. But I could not bring or did not bring myself to look at his time cycles from an astrological viewpoint for several reasons."Emerson. It floored me. but had never seen. I felt like I had been knocked down. time had run out. time was up. I knew this in a "direct-way" that gives me problems describing. The most important reason I didn't. It overwhelmed me. the MASTER TIME FACTOR"-all his references to time were astronomical cycles and divisions of them. we have already discussed and it 24 . I knew all the time that Mr. For the first time I knew that all Mr. and yes. Now. almost took my breath away. truthfully. and I knew that his time cycles were based on it too. Gann ’s work was based on astrology.secrets he would not utter to a chemist for an estate. You notice I said astronomical-not astrological. the time factor. This simple quotation that I read many times.

is most important that you and I always remember this and be
aware of this tendency in our make-up as human beings. Of
course, the primary reason I couldn't look at the time cycles
from an astrological standpoint was that I had rejected
astrology because I saw no value to it. It was outside my
experience. Just like in the previous examples my way of
viewing an object or concept by putting value to it or not putting
value to it with my viewing caused me not to see what was there
even though it was there. You understand? Mr. Gann said plain
enough in the quotation by Emerson that he had laid his
secrets out clear enough but if we did not have the preparation
(or FOUNDATION or BASE) then we would not comprehend
what those secrets meant. In another way this principle is
demonstrated by something as simple as an "Easter Egg Hunt".
Don’t you remember how sometimes those eggs that were hardest
to find were laid out on the ground with nothing hiding
them. They were in plain sight. But, because we were looking
for them to be hidden, we sometimes had trouble seeing them.
Now, I am not telling you that all of Mr. Gann ’s material was
laid out well enough for us to see it. If you had only one of
his books and didn't have his courses you wouldn't understand
what I mean. But I had all of his books and courses and some
unpublished material that had circulated around over time.
Another reason that it had been hard for me to look at his time
cycles from an astrological standpoint is that I thought
present day astrologers had not been able to take his material
and make profits with it. I should amend the previous
statement to read that I had not been able to find or hear of
an astrologer that had deciphered Mr. Gann ’s work. The only
profits I had heard of being made by astrologers were those selling
seminars or books on using astrology trading Mr. Gann. But I
knew no one that had been able to trade it. So, I just
discarded the possibility of my finding out how to use the
time cycles by studying astrology. I guess I thought that if the
professional astrologers who knew much more than I did

couldn ’ t find it or hadn't found it then it was useless for me
to try to use astrology to find the master time factor. My error
again, IMPROPER THINKING, as always. You and I have all
that we need to do anything. We Just need to realize where
our source of supply comes from and then allow it to work.
You can read about this source of supply in " The Seeker's
Creed". Reading doesn't do it though, you have to practice
what’s in there.
I know that it is hard to follow me in this chapter. The title
of it, alone, is enough to make you run the other way. Its just
that I'm not a writer (I'm a seeker) and I have difficulty saying
the things I want to say to you. For the rest of this chapter
please try to bear with me and realize that I am talking about
how the stock market which I had previously rejected, led me
to the astrology part which I had previously rejected, because
of a "mindset" that I had built out of my attitude and habits
of associating or disassociating value with whatever I had been
led by myself or others to think that value should represent.
This is a common problem, I believe, and I hope that I have
been able to
25

correct it somewhat in myself.
Another problem in writing this chapter is that I have two or
three things to tell you about; but th ey didn't happen
sequentially, they occurred simultaneously. So I may jump
from one to the other in telling you about these different
things.
In the beginning of this chapter, I told you that there were two
revelations. I have related the one about the quotation. On the
very same day that the first occurred, the second occurred
too. As I was thinking about the above I went to the stock
market course to look at the chapter in the course on page 90.
The one entitled "FORECASTING BY TIME CYCLES11. For those of
you who do not have the stock course, you will find a complete
copy of the chapter "FORECASTING BY TIME CYCLES" in Appendix I
of my booklet. Please read only the first page of that appendix
at this time.
I am quoting the second paragraph of Mr. Gann 's "FORECASTING
BY
TIME CYCLES"-----"The ancient hunters had a rule that when
they were searching to locate an animal in his den, they
always followed his tracks backward, figuring that it was the
shortest route to his lair. The quickest way for you to learn
how to determine future market movements is to study the
past."
So what, huh? Well that quotation after the first one I mentioned
above gave me precisely the directions to the path that would
lead me to the master time factor! I saw from that quotation
that I needed to get into astrology some more and that
further I needed to trace back in time the things Mr. Gann had
said about time and see if I could track him back to his
lair. I had documents and fragments of unpublished materials
and his books and courses. So I could date most of the things he
had written. I would take the latest material first and then go
back into time to his earliest material and see if he always

said the same things in the same way. Furthermore, I had all
kinds of old astrology books that I had purchased earlier but
had not really gotten into; so I would look at astrological
cycles and let the signs and houses go.
Excuse me for jumping around again, but here's another side
trip, and we will come right back. .1 have been on many many
paths searching for the master time factor. They have all been
dead-end. Now I "know" that the path which ends in "master
time factor" is nearby and I promise you that It will not be
long before we will get on. Anyway, this side trip. I had
talked with an elderly gentleman one time and he said that he
had known Mr. Gann by reputation but had never met Mr. Gann.
He did say though that Mr. Gann had an astrologer by the name of
Edward Johndro who helped him in his work on the markets. Well,
you know me, I began to see what I could find out about Mr.
Johndro. It was my intention to see if I could find him and if
he had already died, I intended to try to find his family and
see if he had left any papers. I called the American Federation
of Astrologers and had them send me the rest of Mr.
Johndro's books that I didn't already have. Then I learned
from them of a man that had studied

I tried reading Mr. was going to be threefold. I had read where some people . Gann’s circular calculators.Johndro work as much as any other living person. Johndro was a mundane astrologer. Gann. The gentleman in New York said that he was not interested in talking about financial astrology except to say that Mr. my approach now. Johndro was a famous astrologer and had clients that were high officials of the Canadian government. One-I would study to see what mundane astrologers thought at the turn of the century and earlier. Furthermore I wanted to look only at the writings from 1920 back in time because I knew that Mr. Gann's calculators were all related to something from astrology. At the same time I was going to track the writings that he had made back in time from those nearest his death to those earliest in his life. his papers were burned by his family at the request of these officials. Gann's Important time cycles by an astrological time cycle. I noticed that the cover on his booklet "A New Concept Of Sign Ruler ship" appeared to resemble some of Mr. two-I would try to identify each one of Mr. but I just assumed that it was because Mr. Johndro had some very Interesting ideas on it. In my searching through astrology books for old mundane astrological precepts I came to the conclusion that the useful part of astrology for me at that particular time would be something similar to the following. So I began a study of mundane astrology. The death was apparently "sudden" and because this Mr. Johndro 's work several times but I did not have a good enough foundation (preparation) to understand it very well. I did not pursue the matter further from here. I was excited now because I "knew" that I was getting somewhere. three-I would try to relate the first two approaches together and see if there were any parities or disparities between them. Gann had begun trading by 1902. So. Johndro had died in approximately 1955 at about the same time as Mr. I then contacted that gentleman in New York and I learned that Mr. and. The important thing that I learned from this was that Mr.

said that they did not believe in astrology. to me I was studying astronomy. but that they did believe that the planets In the solar system caused magnetic and electric fields in our earth's atmosphere and certainly we must respond to them in different ways at different times. They knew more than we think they knew. Some of these disturbances could cause waves of optimism and pessimism and weather disturbances. I knew that earlier generations were more practical than we give them credit for today. because. Certainly I could believe that and I was now willing to look at ideas and concepts that I would not earlier have looked at with sincerity. a science. Also. the best place 27 . where astrology is merely an Interpretation of events and conditions that may in fact have been caused by astronomical relationships. In fact. Now.

Major conjunctions (of the planets. Even though I had glanced through this book several times in the past I had my blinders on and therefore could not see. and in all mundane affairs. Used in connection with the solar ingress charts. where two superior to earth orbit planets appear to be in the same spot in the sky) are very important in the consideration of world events. It has always seemed that the conjunction of these two planets has had the greatest influence and significance upon the course of world affairs. I have mentioned to you earlier about the great value I had found in using dictionaries and encyclopedias. They were not about to dig one where it was not needed. Now that I was free I was almost blinded again by the light that came from looking at this and other books. Old-timers had to dig a ditch by hand. One of the best sources of general and specific information about astrology that I have found Is a book. "Encyclopedia Of Astrology" by Nicholas deVore. The 'life 1 of the Influence of these great conjunctions upon world affairs and Individuals remains in force until the next conjunction of the same pair of planets. I had also learned from HARD experience not to reject anything as having no value just because my educational background and Social circle saw no value in it. I have learned to acquire a great respect for the ancients and what they thought. "The old astrologers placed GREAT importance upon the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn. Everywhere I looked. and rightly since this conjunction involves the two largest bodies of our solar system.for me to put that ditch would be exactly where that old ditch had been dug.

This cycle was the most important of all to them and they watched it with GREAT INTEREST. 59«577 years have passed and with each 123 degree advance in the zodiac the conjunctions have come full circle of 360 degrees plus an additional 9 degrees (approximately) more. (all values are mean) the time period from conjunction to opposition (0 to 180 degrees) in the Jupiter-Saturn cycle of 19«859 years was 9^93 years (almost 10). I searched further into these cycles listed in the encyclopedia of astrology and I found more.858 years. I found that the orbit time (mean) of Jupiter in tropical years (from spring to spring) was 11. This term "first order recurrence cycle" was new to me. Another very important cycle to the ancients was the 3RD 20 year cycle of Jupiter-Saturn. You understand. For instance. This 60 year cycle is the one that the ancients spoke so much about. Gann's same time .talking about things that I found about the 20 year cycle in books about the old astrologers. While looking up more information about first order recurrence cycles.

I was finding Mr. the time period of conjunction to opposition of the Saturn-Uranus cycle is 22. This was very important to the ancients because the conjunctions were now taking place very close to the same spot in the zodiac that they had occurred 60 (approximately) years earlier. The occurrence of the next cycle takes place at an advance of approximately 123 degrees in longitude in the circle of the zodiac. I had READ it before but I had never seen it.

In "The Seeker's Creed" you can read about the necessary knowledge to develop a "mindset" that will allow you to overcome this vision problem that we all have to some extent.

What we are really faced with is this common problem of shutting up our God given powers of understanding when we refuse to see things because they are outside our experience. They are time periods of planets and planetary relationships. these cycles that I have been enumerating above are all scientific facts.(well. It had taken me four long and painful years of searching to see what his time cycles were. But reading about it will not help you as much as practicing it. Also.

" Now why would you suppose that he would say that the 90-year cycle is important BECAUSE it is 2x45 (or twice 45). He just mentions the 60-year cycle by the word compare.

Gann’s books and courses and read them with a new awareness that I hope to be able to give you before this story is over. O. huh? Then look down at the 20-year cycle heading. As you begin to go back over Mr. back to the test. There is a reason for the manner in which he described the above referenced cycles. The 90-year cycle is the "first order recurrence cycle of SaturnUranus. "The 90-year Time Cycle is one of the very important ones because it is 2x45. lets look at the headings 84 year cycle and 60 year cycle. under the 90-year cycle heading. The other two things that I wanted you to look at while we are on the adjoining page is to turn over to page 65 in the Commodities Course (if you have it. Maybe. That is why Mr.thing.

He says that the 20-year cycle is a very important cycleWHY?-because it is 1/3 of the 60-year cycle.K. but he describes the importance of the 20-year cycle because of its relationship to the 60-year cycle. While you are thinking about that. Almost just the word compare.

He just said to compare 60 years from tops and bottoms. In the 90-year cycle he described its importance in terms of the fact that it contained 2. I wonder why he didn't say much of anything about them and particularly the 60 year cycle. It actually takes an average of 90. and I quote.

The reason that I have spent so much time on the above is that I 31 . thought was the very important cycle. Yet Mr. In other words. Coincidence? The 30 year cycle is of course as we have all known all along the period of time that it takes for Saturn to complete its orbit. 1852.course the time it takes Uranus to complete its orbit. Just the 45-year cycle is the time from conjunction to conjunction (or "0" to "0") of Saturn-Uranus. The 45-year cycle is the one multiplied by 2 that gives the "first order recurrence" cycle of 90 years. I have seen one of Mr. The significance to Mr. There was a beginning (and ending of course) of a 45-year Saturn-Uranus cycle on March 15.

There is nothing wrong with the word commercial. I now find it to be the most difficult chapter of all.CHAPTER 7 I DISCOVER FACTOR! THE LEGENDARY MASTER TIME In writing this little booklet. that's a long word. if I could just get to the part about the master time factor. we get the order reversed.

I already know that I have not done as well as I had hoped. But. Profits is a beautiful word. There are several reasons for my difficulty in writing this chapter for you. I feel that part of the cause for this relates to the nature of the material that I am dealing with. simply has been to write the most lucid explanation of Mr. One.

And he hid it because he said it was too valuable to be "spread broadcast". If you are a "seeker". He hid it the way the ancients did-out in the open.

(This may have been what the New Testament parable meant about putting new wine in an old wine skin.

I found that the Bible is Indeed a book of natural laws. The first one. . YOU. How do I know that many of you will approach the explanation of the master time factor in this manner?

And I know that it makes it harder for you to SEE when I am jumping so. that I must try to explain it by analyzing it for you in the same manner that I did it for myself. The reason that I have had to take so much time with this preparation (foundation) is that I had to assume that some of you may have been in as "b ad of s hap e" as I was. a " s p e c i a l p a i r o f g l a s s e s " .

This also points out just what an astute businessman Mr. If he was going to make predictions for a newspaper article (free publicity) he chose deliberately to make them at a time right after (shortly after the 9th of October) the blow-off top would have confirmed itself. but emphasizing how he probably used the master time factor here at this point. Gann was. then he had someone. Not taking anything away from his remarkable feat.why and how the stock market actually acted in past similar cycles. Gllley) call 41 . Giving (as he said) not only the cause but the proof of market action. The same thing happened in 1929 but it was a much bigger "blow-off" because it was the end of the 60-year cycle (or 3rd 20 year cycle).

Also. selling every rally at its rally resistance point and then buying back at places on hard breaks for small rallies to re-sell on. If you will notice US Steel ’ s birthday you will notice that it was incorporated on February 25. Gann had said at other times that his forecast could be made one year or more in the future WITH JUST MINOR ADJUSTMENTS OVER TIME. I would like to point out to you why I think that US Steel was watched so much by Mr. If he knew what he was looking for (he did-and you are beginning to) he could allow for small adjustments in time on the repetition of these 20 years cycles. The markets at that time (1901-1920 on your chart sheet 1. in yellow) performed remarkably well for 3 points moves and divisional points of resistance. 1901. they were in the same year and the "1" year on his charts are really the "0" point of the chart.and offer to set up the demonstration for the article. Of course. (Today this chart is #19 in a packet of charts sold by Lambert-Gann Publishing Co. he probably traded the swings from the short side. the few months between March and November are not important. the M 0 W representing both the beginning of the chart in time at January 1901 and the "0" representing the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction itself in November 1901. When you are looking at a general monthly chart over a period of 240 months (20 years). Knowing that the top was done. you will notice that 1901 was the beginning of his natural 20 years cycle on his master forecasting chart. it had good volume (liquidity) over the years as time passed by. That's where his other rules begin to be developed . Mr. 1901. Astrologers (and astronomers. but Mr. Gann. Partly due to the nature of the market then. The conjunction was always the starting point in the cycle to measure from. Gann began following it early. I guess) represented the conjunction by "0" with quotations around it because it indicated the beginning of a time relationship of whatever was being looked at and it in fact also represented 0 degrees in that cycle. Also. and trading first began on March 28.) I have indicated to you earlier that there was also a conjunction of Jupiter-Saturn in November 1901.

So. 1929. I think that he used "Steel" as his natural barometer to trade off of the natural cycle (Jupiter-Saturn) that seemed to "influence" the stock market most. So. I speculate (to observe and believe as a result of the observation) that Mr. In fact in his stock course later he says that Steel (meaning US) made its all time high on September 3. when we utilize our new found understanding of Mr. Naturally. but as I will show you when I bring the master time factor up to date through the years that we can achieve a new perspective in regards to time. he could not then trade the stock indexes as we have today but he had to find an actual stock vehicle to trade and US Steel was the natural choice. I believe that Mr. in some fashion very sim il ar to wh at I ha ve d escr ib ed for yo u. Gann was in his prime. Gann made those trades for the "Ticker Magazine or Magazine of Wall Street" or whatever. We cannot expect to be able to forecast anywhere near that good. And of course the averages did too. Gann watched US Steel because it was born at the natural time (year) of the conjunction and was therefore (in his eyes) under the "influence" of the natural time cycle (Jupiter-Saturn).and used. Gann ’s rules based on 42 . then that shows you just how good Mr. If thi s speculation is approximately accurate.

NOW YOU KNOW WHY HE CALLED THE 5TH YEAR THE YEAR OF ASCENSION. or 5th period of anything.

We couldn ’ t be consistent before we learned HOW TO SEE (OR WATCH) BECAUSE WE HAD BLINDED OURSELVES and therefore could not see because we didn't know what we were watching in the first place so how could we be consistent.

In order to get back to the original line of thought that I started with at the beginning of the previous paragraph... or 1910 and you see that it is a bear year from 1909 top in October. you see under No. 9 that top is made September to November in 1909. Gann made his forecast.used by old astrologers to indicate the division of the circle on a square surface. Over time this will become clear to you. so you look at No 10.) And of course we can carry this symbolism (symbolism is truth in a subjective inner sort of way) on by pointing out that the 5th year is a 90 degree angle or aspect then the 10th year is also two 90 f s or 180 and Mr. Pretend it is now 1910 or 1911. then you look to see what happens from there. barring the usual rallies.then you look back to page 4 in the brochure and you now SEE how Mr. Gann ’ s rules reflect this by 5th year ascension up and another 5th year (10th year from beginning) down or bear year. but that rallies oftenrun until March or April. be toward lower prices until March or April 1910. How would 44 . Gann said in November 1909 that the trend of the stock market should. Then on page F-7 in the master time factor lesson. I want to say that on page 4 of the brochure where Mr.

And if you have some more good proven rules to give better indications of this forecast you are in a strong position to makes lots of money. As far as analysis goes. You might say with the rules in lesson on the master time factor on page F-7 that you would look for a top in September to November of 1929 and then you would look for a sharp decline with the market trending lower with some rallies until March or April 1930. and we may have looked at 1909 and 1910 more than you ever wanted to. I'm helping myself because I'm l e ar n i n g n e w t h i n g s al l t he t i m e. Still page 4-same two para. Lets wait and see what happens. then you would look for another severe break to run until November or December 1930 at which time that cycle would end (talking about a 10 year cycle now or the same thing as one-half of the twenty year cycle. Hmmm. Oh. -Now you will have to admit that we have done a lot of analyzing on two paragraphs. I forgot that you must have some plan to take advantage of this wonderful information.

This brochure was written probably in late 1939 and published in early 1940 (probably).Now this gives me an opportunity to show you something you already know. Gann forecast the election of Woodrow Wilson and has been correct in fo r e c a s t i n g t h e e l e c ti o n o f e v e r y P r e s i d e n t s i n c e t h a t t i m e .

I have told you several times how I feel about Mr. Page 4-third para. but some people think that Mr. Gann and his work. My search in his work allowed me to rediscover my creed. "In 1912 Mr. b u t h e f o r g e t s a n d o v e r l o o k s h i s m i s t a k e s a n d h i s failed forec ast s a nd predictions and j ust ne ve r mentions th em ag ain .

Gann never made a mistake in his forecasts and that he never told a lie about his records. .done a good job on this page 4 of the brochure. Mr. like all businessmen and economic forecasters and people in general advertised his hits and successes and never let us forget them (th at ’ s wh y he rem in ds u s.

because. on balance both in the markets and in life. Mr. For now. W45 Years In Wall Street". But. based on what we have already learned to this point. Now to finish this page 4. that he just miscalculated and didn't follow his own rules entirely. I will offer you an explanation. they are glaringly wrong. he apparently forgot missing that one. You can accept it or reject it. as I said In late 1939. by then you will have seen enough that you are ready to start on your own forecasting methods for yourself. that the paragraph on Page 4. you can see by that. It doesn't matter. We will cover all this in detail later. just remember that Mr. This is good for us to see because we must never get to sure of our forecasts. because of the bad forecasts. I know because I have gone back and checked all of them to see if they were true. about his forecasting the election of every President since 1912 was not true. In the markets we need to make more profits than losses on balance. HE ALSO SUBSTITUTED LESS VALUABLE LESSONS FOR LESS MONEY. When you find the predictions. Look on page F-11 in the master time factor lesson and you will see one of the very rare Instances where you get to see Mr. There is another Instance that you will have an opportunity to see a forecast made before the fact and it too was wrong. so to speak. Gann missed his forecast on the presidential election. but for those of you who can’t wait. now. Gann make a forecast for the next year BEFORE It actually happens. If you do figure it out now you are well on your way to admitting that you have the master time factor. Again. I thought that he had taken this lesson off the market. . Both are learning arenas and we should continue to progress and learn from our mistakes. as you can plainly see. because his rule says that it would be a bull year generally. now I AM CONVINCED THAT HE TOOK IT OFF BECAUSE IT MADE THE MASTER TIME FACTOR TOO PLAIN IN OPEN WRITING. because he wrote this brochure. but. and most of the time he was right. Besides that. until. it appears to me. his 1936 market forecastwould not have been any good to try to trade either. figure out why he made them. it is in his book. I will also show you that most of them were predicated upon this same master time factor that we are talking about. In other words he says he forecasted so and so. to try to get back to the subject at hand. furthermore. I will cover it later. Later. So.didn't pan out. and that he didn't want anyone to see it since it was not correct. I will cover one of them in particular detail so that we can see why he was predicting something that turned out to be totally wrong. In life we need to make more good moves than mistakes on balance. HE CHARGED MORE FOR THIS ONE THAN OTHERS. We just need to do better. If you look back at all his material you will find particularly in later years that these forecasts are merely mentioned in his books and discussed after the fact. As a final note on this. you can come up with an acceptable reason for his being wrong on that particular prediction then you still have a ways to go. But. for a long time when I read this back in 1980 and 1981. This may have had something to do with it. Gann wasn't perfect in his life and his forecasting and trading the markets AND WE DON'T HAVE TO BE EITHER. He also just sold this lesson as his MOST VALUABLE ONE.

. this time period from W0n to 180 consumes 120 months or ten years. basically it ’ s like a triangle.part about "His Stock Forecasts for 1920 and 1921 indicated a bear market with sharp declines. just like your left hand looks like your right hand. Also. then it starts down from opposition which is the new "0" in the 10 year cycle but only half way in the 20 year cycle but it is at the top of the triangle and coming down to the original base for the ending of one cycle and the beginning of a new one. This is generally the blow-off year.-" Now look at page F-7 in the master time factor rules on calendar years. .Page 5-lst para. This is simply a way for him to say it is the 9th year without telling you that it is the opposition of JupiterSaturn that causes this phenomena in the markets to occur. Since the left side of a triangle looks like the right side of a triangle. see again No. except that one is on the left and the other is on the right you have similar yearly patterns going up the 1st 10'years and then coming down the 2nd ten years. Gann explains it simply by saying that 9 is the highest digit. See again No. You generally have the top made in the 8th and 9th year. 10 year (or 1920). you have one 10-year period going up and another 2nd 10-year period going down. Since it is like a triangle within the circle (or square). that’s the page # in the lesson on the master time factor). the left side of the triangle going from "0" (remember that ’s conjunction) to 180 degrees (remember that’s opposition or top). Mr. Remember we did not start our chart at the exact date of the conjunction in 1901 but at the 1st month of the year in 1901. And again the reason that it comes in that particular year is because of the way and time frame in which we have devised the chart that shows us the picture of how the swings look over the two halves of the 20 year cycle. look at page F-6 (remember anytime I precede the page # with F. 1 year (or 1921) is the first year in a new decade (a ten year cycle-but it is also the first year and new beginning of the 20 year cycle. indicates a bear year with sharp declines-March and April.

if we start from the proper place (that we know) and be consistent. you see that it makes no difference where we start from. It makes no difference what we call them they are all the same.Several reasons for this. or we could shift our reference point two years to the left (backwards in time) on our charts and now the 8th year becomes the blow-off year (or top) of the triangle. he has given away his master time factor. We can just shift our reference point in our minds and say. O. circle or cycle that we are looking at. how do you think it would have looked to start it from November 28.) So. 2nd.K. the 12 months of a year allow us the most consistent way to look at them. square. THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AWE-INSPIRING WAY TO SEE TRUTH THAT THE ANCIENTS AND ADEPTS USED TO DEMONSTRATE PRICELESS INFORMATION AND CONCEPTS 47 . (He gave it away to me by simply starting from "1" year instead of "0". or we could shift our reference point to the left (backwards in time) and say that the 9th year will be the blow-off year (or top). 1st we want to look at several 20 year cycles stacked on the same time periods.-the 10th year will be the blow-off year in this cycle because its at the top of the cycle. if he starts his charts from the actual conjunction. 1901.

Now you can look at any cycle or circle that you want to with the above symbolism and mindset that I have described. -I used to think that this was probably his worst book because it was his earliest.FROM THOSE WHO WERE NOT PREPARED TO APPRECIATE AND UNDERSTAND THEM WAS HIDDEN IN THIS MANNER.

If you plan to use the master time factor in your trading. If looking at astrology disturbs you just ignore it. all in due time.

But. but it makes sense to me that there can be some causes of our behavior tied to variations In our magnetic life fields and as a result of this thought process. Gann (and the ancients and astrologers) called the 60-year cycle the Master Time Period is because it contains approximately 2 cycles of the orbit of Saturn and 5 cycles of the orbit of Jupiter. and future usefulness of his master time factor. I have to mention astrology here. Gann was an astrologer and therefore we must discuss it. it doesn't matter. then you at least need to know what the time factor is based on according to the man that developed it and spent a lifetime developing rules to utilize its repetitions. before I forget.

What he means is that if you have his master time element (factor) and his cy cl e th eory as mention ed in the same sent ence. Gann doesn't mean that here.4.5. by the word "effect ” he means the moves of prices up or down through time as a result of the cause. "mathematically determined " -you might first think he means the calculations necessary to determine the positions of the planets and this is a frequent expression used by astrologers. Just simple counting-1.

Look below in the next two paragraphs.talking about his 1937 forecast. Page 11-bottom of page. Gann was asked how it was possible to make such an accurate forecast one year in advance. it is sound advice for sure. This quotation has dual meanings. Downers had bad connotations. the second hidden under the 1st. same old story now with the forecasts. down. Here is one of my favorite quotations: "Prove all things and hold fast to that which is good. He always did his advertisements that way. but you have another opportunity to see why "7" was attached to the end of something. "He stated that it was his own discovery of a mathematical master time factor and cycle theory which enables him to tell when certain cycles recur and great panics and booms take place. "This year comes under a time cycle which definitely indicates a bear year in most stocks and a panicky decline— fl see his No. Gann ’ s natural genius for selling his products have been overshadowed by his forecasts but his sales ability was by no means small.AGAIN WE REPEAT: .HE MEANS. but did you know that it has another meaning to and that is why he is saying Again WE Repeat: above it.

He couldn't just come out and say the SQUARE OF 20 YEARS.w One of the rules is for trading for fast moves after the market gives a definite signal—". I have two comments that I want to bring to your attention on pages 13 and 14 of the brochure. You must always determine what he is talking about at the time in order to know which time period to select. BECAUSE THEN YOU WOULD KNOW THAT HE MEANT THE SQUARE OF THE JUPITER-SATURN CYCLE. the trouble I have had with the Gann rules. Another example. he is talking about the SATURN ORBIT or 30 years (approximately) or 360 months. page 13. to make you think he is talking about all of them simultaneously. So he tosses in the other time periods of days. T he r e a re se v er a l o th er s . I got signals 53 .THE SQUARE OF 20 YEARS. monthly.

You see for yourself you should plan your trades by the YEARS. but he was telling the truth. "Ye Shall Know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free". CAN YOU BEGIN TO SEE SOME BENEFICIAL things that the KNOWLEDGE of the master time factor is going to do for you in your trading? You must take the knowledge and then go back to everyone of his rules and see what he was really trying to do with each rule and what its purpose was. Gann's work now that you know what the master time factor is and now that you understand the idea behind it so that you can experiment. This gives you some Insight to what the quotation really means. you need to STOP TRADING. but have Instead been making losses. take the information that I have given you on Mr.all the time-and most of the time wrong signals.not by the days or hours.

I learned a lot about how Mr. I have mentioned to you before. you would assume at first glance that this would contain 54 . find out what's wrong. Gann used his words and his language by reading the descriptions in sales pieces that he had written about his courses and materials over the years. take this course that he calls his "Complete Course"."The Complete Course is in Four Lessons: --"Then he goes on to describe the contents of this course. Then and ONLY then go back into the market with prudence and common sense. designed by you. based on this remarkable man's work. and start over again. For instance.

I found that he would make something in an advertisement sound scientific.all of his material. The purpose of my bringing all this to your attention is that I want you to see that it is the little everyday things that we do everyday that is so important in the long run. this phrase or sentence would be in the piece that he advertised. or tied religiously to the Bible or some worthwhile quotation. 1939. . the one written in November 1935 (the real THING). Gann's past advertising habits will give us ironclad conclusive hard evidence out of his own mouth that I have been giving you his master time factor. by the previous relationship between how he advertised other past material and the style that he used to do so. GANN»S MASTER TIME FACTOR. then he would mention some phrase or sentence in the ad and tell you what the value would be to you in certain terms. HERE COMES MY FINAL EVIDENCE. By studying the past (his materials). but then his advertising habits allow us to SEE it clearly. and a poor one when compared to the "real McCoy". but this "Complete Course" does not contain the "FORECASTING" or master time factor lesson. By studying patterns we learn about all kinds of things. He protects it so well by hiding it out in the open (just like the ancients) and never really identifying it. I WANT YOU TO KNOW WITH CONFIDENCE THAT YOU KNOW HAVE MR. patterns in our minds will give us truths to live by that will set us free (the proper mindset). instead. a substitute. he will likely do the same way in the future. In other words what he did in the past. this would then tie them together and when you ordered the book or course you would see the relationship. this course contains the one he had just written 3 months earlier in August. it is simple. I know it by studying what and how Mr. Gann has advertised in the past. then I can see him do the same thing in the future and now. Intriguing. the patterns in Mr. Patterns in the market when learned will give us truths that will allow us to profit. mystical. He is a creature of habit Just like you and I and the patterns of the market and the seasons. You may ask how I know that.

Now I know that you think that this is a trifling 55 .In my Appendix I you will find a complete copy of the August 1939 lesson that Mr. Gann always did this. At the bottom of page 15 in the brochure he describes the lessons that will be included in the four-lesson course which he is calling his complete course here (at other times in past advertising pieces he has called the different courses by slightly different names). "There is a definite relation between price and time. But the key to knowing that this is the lesson that he is talking about comes in the next sentence after Time Elements and Time Rules. At any rate when he describes Lesson III he calls it Time Elements and Time Rules lesson." Mr. the fourth paragraph down on the title page starts with the sentence "There is a definite relation between TIME and PRICE. lesson entitled "Forecasting By Time Cycles". -" Then under appendix I.he would take one or more words or sentences directly out of the thing he was going to sell and he would use it or refer to it when he advertised it. He doesn’ t call it by the name "Forecasting By Time Cycles11 that you see on the Title page under his letterhead in my appendix I. He says. Gann had written 3 or 4 months before the publication of this brochure.

1. but now in 1939-40 times are hard. 2. look back at that same paragraph "There is a definite relation between Time and Price. Now in this course No. look at Course No. If this course is better than what he sold in past years for $5000. This is all in the Stock Market Course today. Gann was talking about in his brochure because he had so many and different ones at different times. To show you that the 1939 lesson on forecasting By Time Cycles 11 is the one again that he is describing. that's the starter set for young people it is Lesson 1 and 2 only and it costs half the price of Course No. You see going back to the Course Description that we are considering. Also notice the difference in the description in this Lesson 1 in Course No. On page 16. and he says that it is worth $5000. It's like I changed certain parts of my story in this booklet and sent some of you different versions. -Then next sentence"In the previous Lessons you have learned about Formations and Resistance Levels-M-Now look back to page 15 in the brochure and you see the Lesson I and Lesson II matching the description and order of this described course. he says it is more complete than ones he has sold for $5000 in the past. 1. then I'm glad I didn't get it. 2 Complete Course of Instructions-consisting of Four Lessons -the ones we have Just described except for the Volume Lesson which wasn't important to my discussion. so hard (he doesn't say this-that’s my observation) that he is going to reduce it to $1000.thing and that I am pulling at straws but you need to just bear with me because the fact that he has this habit of doing this is going to show you for yourself without any doubt that you NOW HAVE THE MASTER TIME FACTOR. because I have it now. it means break-a-way points. it is necessary to identify which course that Mr. if you have the Stock Market Course. . look at the price. you do too. and I could not trade off it well enough to make any money without knowledge of the master time factor. No mention of the master time factor. 2 because it is half the course. Now on page 16 he calls this same course described on page 15 as his Course No. In case you are wondering what the initials mean in the description of Lesson 1 under Course No.

Gann should have known better than to make a statement like that. because it was then "set in stone" so to speak and he had a remarkable record of correct forecasts and it does not look good for a forecaster to have bad forecasts lying around in books where anyone can see them.

BY: "THE SEEKER" BACKGROUND: THIS WAS WRITTEN BY "THE SEEKER" IN 1971. THE ONLY PERSON THAT THIS WAS EVER GIVEN TO PRIOR TO THIS TIME WAS THE MAN THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE SELLING THE AUTHOR MR. IT TOOK THE EXPERIENCES OF THE SEARCH FOR THE MASTER TIME FACTOR TO CAUSE THE AUTHOR TO RE-DISCOVER THE INCREDIBLE VALUE AND TRUTH OF THIS CREED. Gann’s MASTER TIME FACTOR. HE MERELY LEARNED THEM FROM OTHERS. 8 YEARS BEFORE THE 'AUTHOR EVER HEARD OF MR. THE AUTHOR TAKES NO CLAIM THAT THESE IDEAS OR BELIEFS ARE ORIGINALLY HIS. THE BOOKLET. THEN COMPILED THEM AS THE BEST OF TRUTH THAT HE HAD FOUND. NOTHING IN THIS CREED WAS ORIGINAL WITH THE AUTHOR. "THE Seeker’s CREED" WAS WRITTEN IN AN EFFORT TO ALLOW THE AUTHOR TO COMPILE HIS BELIEFS AS LEARNED FROM A LIFETIME OF READING AND SEARCHING FOR THE NATURAL LAWS AND PRINCIPLES OF LIVING SUCCESSFULLY. IT WAS NOT INTENDED TO BE MADE PUBLIC. IT WAS WRITTEN FOR THE PERSONAL AND PRIVATE USE OF THE AUTHOR.D. IF YOU WILL.APPENDIX V "THE SEEKER'S CREED" WRITTEN: JUNE 1971. HOWEVER. GANN. IT IS COPIED HERE EXACTLY AS IT WAS TAKEN FROM THE AUTHOR1 S PERSONAL NOTEBOOK. THE USEFULNESS OF THIS CREED WAS FORGOTTEN-LOST. "MY STORY-A SEARCH FOR W. THEN TRIED TO LIVE BY THEM. GANN'S MASTER TIME FACTOR" DESCRIBES WHAT HAPPENED. IN THE HUMDRUM OF EVERY DAY LIVING AND IN THE SEARCH FOR OTHER MORE EXCITING THINGS. . AND HIS EXPERIENCE PROVED THEM TO B& VERY VALUABLE. IT WAS ALL STATED IN DIFFERENT BOOKS THAT GREAT PEOPLE HAD WRITTEN OVER THE YEARS.

I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY THIS CREED WORKS. THERE ARE NO ETHNIC DIFFERENCES. IT IS SCIENTIFIC-IP YOU WILL. IT IS MEANT TO BE AND IS A GROUP OF NATURAL LAWS THAT ARE TRUE AND WORK. TRY IT! THE DIRECT USE AND APPLICATION OF THIS CREED IS WHAT ALLOWED THE AUTHOR TO FIND THE MASTER TIME FACTOR. YOU WILL BE AMAZED TO FIND THAT YOU WILL VASTLY IMPROVE ALL AREAS OF YOUR LIFE. THESE ARE MAN-MADE. ALL IS THE SAME IN NATURAL LAWS. WHATEVER YOUR FAITH-JUST SUBSTITUTE AS YOU LIKE IN THIS CREED.THIS CREED IS NOT MEANT TO BE A RELIGION OR ANYTHING RELIGIOUS. APPENDIX V . THE AUTHOR WAS BROUGHT-UP IN A PROTESTANT CHURCH BUT HAS NOT BEEN PARTICULARY RELIGIOUS. BUT IT DOES. IF YOU WILL ADOPT THIS CREED FOR YOUR OWN AND LEARN IT BY HEART AND PRACTICE IT. THE KNOWLEDGE AND PRACTICE OF THIS CREED IS FAR MORE VALUABLE THAN THE MASTER TIME FACTOR OR ANYTHING ELSE THAT THIS AUTHOR HAS EVER FOUND.

I believe that God created the Universe in the beginning and that it (this creation) is a continual process. I believe that God is all Powerful. I believe that God is Truth and that Truth reveals God. all Knowing. Health."THE SEEKER'S CREED" I. CREATION 1. I believe that God created the world out of His Mind through imaging by a positive force of will caused by desire to create. I believe that God is in me. the Creator and Ruler of the Universe! I believe that God is the primary Cause.I believe that God created the universe by His Word (mental . Joy. I believe that God is unlimited Resources and Energies. Blessing. I believe that God has dominion over the Universe. Faith. Praise. Riches.

I believe that God set up the functioning systems or laws of the universe at the same time that He created the universe and that He used the laws that He set up in order to create the universe. 6. 7. I believe that God created the universe and all in it by imaging it. The action took was using part of himself (His Flux or Energy). This creation was effected by His Desire to create something out of Him.image) first. I believe that God created the universe through: (1) Imaging. 6. then by taking action to bring the image into reality. .

5. (5) Using principles or laws in the creation. I believe that they are shown throughout the universe and throughout history. 7. 6. . I believe that these laws are designed to show the glory of God and to reveal God. in other religious writings. 4. II. 8. (2)Desire To Make Image Real.1. I believe that these laws are expressed in the bible. mental. morals. which would also govern the creation. 9.

I believe that all of nature including man prospers and functions best under these laws. Flux in proper manner to (4) Giving Of Himself (Putting part of His Energy into the creation). I believe that health. and throughout life and the universe. (3) Action (Using Energy or create image). 3.

phys ical. I believe that specific things in life are symbolic of these laws and that all natural phenomena reflect these same natural laws. and in fact. I believe you must ACT first. 2. I believe that for each action there is an equal reaction 4. all phas es and aspects of life are governed by these same laws. You get the power by ACTING (doing the thing). I believe that you ACT (do the thing) first and you shall have the power. . III. econ omi cal. I believe that there must be movement for I anything to be 1. I believe that Action is one of the first natural laws. THE LAW OF ACTION believe that there must be action (You must act). 3.

I believe that energy follows the action of the mind. I believe that man is made by his belief. I believe you must act the way you want to feel. and BECOME it! 10.5« I believe you must act (pretend movement) the part you want. 9« I believe that when you act something enough.I believe that acting in your imagination provides the realization of what you Imagine. HE BECOMES (is). I believe you must act as if you are already what you want to be. How will you act when you get what you want? Act that way now.I believe you will be the way you act. you BELIEVE it. 8. 7. 6. . I believe that as you believe. I believe that as a man thinking in his heart (his subconscious or image making apparatus). (What you think is what you get). thinks that way now. I believe you must act as if you have already created what you want to create. Thought is action in rehearsal. I believe you must act as if you already possess what you want to have. let that way of acting and thinking becomes a habit. so you are. I believe that continuous Impulses of thought have a tendency to clothe themselves in their physical equivalent. 11. I believe you must relax when you act and concentrate your attention on the way you act and think.

12. But. 14. I believe that heat produces action and action produces heat. I believe that resistance should not be offered to directed . Look-the part. Soon you will have the virtue. Uncomfortableness is one of the catalysts of achievement. Heat increases motion. I believe that this is also evidenced by "You cannot serve two masters at the same time". 16. Action. before long you will BE it. Action cause heat and therefore increases motion. 14.directed. 15.-and WILL GET! 13« I believe that you should assume a virtue if you don ’ t have it. I believe that you can only act one part at a time. I believe that if you act something in your own mind and daily and frequently repeat it. Dress the part.causes production of achievement. I believe that your manner shows your attitude. look out! It is a two-edged sword. Speak the part.. I believe that heat causes uncomfortableness and that uncomfortableness causes heat. I believe this part of the law is also further emphasized by the law of specialization. It cuts both ways. I believe your attitude shows what you expect. Act the part. This wonderful law is how you acquire anything that you want which you don't have.

Action. Live spelled backward is evil. Any resistance
offered to God ’ s laws is taking away from directed action.
Life is action. Every act rewards itself. Therefore any
resistance offered to action (life) directed (laws) is what
constitutes ev il (th e rev erse o f l iv e).
V. LAW OF HARVEST
1. I believe that a basic law of the universe is: DIVIDE .. and
GROW!
2.I believe that this is the only method of increase known
nature since the beginning of time.
3. I believe that God divided part of Himself (HIS ENERGY) when
He created the universe.
4.I believe that all nature has its own built in image — except
man, whose reproductive image is built in, but man's mind
(sub-conscious and conscious) can produce images of its own,
making man a small God.

6. I believe that growth is caused by. Desire from within.
Desire
to be what the image is.
7.I believe that desire is the planting of the seed. The seed
is the mental image. The seed is the WORD.
8. I

believe that like reproduces like. I believe that
everything reproduces after its own kind (its image) (whose
seed is in itself). Everything reproduces in its own
image
(likeness). BETTER WATCH YOUR IMAGES!

9. I believe the

seed

(image) has

the

ability to draw unto

itself what it needs for growth to perfect its maturity
(reproduction of itself after its own kind (image)).

10. I believe the growth of this seed is fertilized by blessing,
praise, giving, and thankfulness.
1 1. I be li ev e t hat he at (desire) causes th e seed t o bu rst ou t
of
its shell (mindset or mold of habits) and to move towards
the
accomplishment of growing into its own image.
12. I believe the heat is caused by burying the seed in the earth
(in the subconscious); by giving it (seed) away to the earth,
b y s o wi n g i t i n t h e e a r th , b y l e t t i n g i t ( s e e d ) d i e t o t h e
giver or sower. It must be given, or used, or die before it
can be reproduced in life. Then after the seed is sown, God’s
sunlight (insight and desire) causes the heat in the
earth
(subconscious mind), and the shell expands and bursts
forth
new life from this heat.

10. I believe that this is the same thing that happens in man e s
mind. The seed (mental image) must be burled with desire
in
the
subconscious.
It
must
be
buried
in
the
subconscious
before it can come alive. That is why I must be very careful
about the images (mindsets) that I allow myself to develop.
11. I believe that each seed then can only reproduce itself,
whatever it was or is. It cannot produce something it is not.
15- I believe the seed dies when it stops dividing and growing. I
believe that the law of cycles further emphasizes this. When
growing (outgoing) reaches a peak (maximum out-growth),
disintegration begins (contracting phase begins).
16. I believe that the seed and plant draws upon the surrounding
energy for what it needs for growth, at will when needed and
in the amount needed.
God supplies this energy through
his creative principles and laws!
17. I believe that God is the Source of All Supply. He is the
Provider of All.
(This is most important that I
understand
this at all times). "How blest are those who know this
(their
need of God as the Source of All Supply)—the kingdom of
heaven (expansion and growth) is theirs.
18. I believe that there is a mystic pattern behind the Law
of
Harvest and that it symbolizes all of God’s laws in their
relationship to man’s creations. I believe that it goes like
this: Preparing the
soil before planting; then
planting the seed; the seed bursting out of its shell and
a
like plant starting as a baby but knowing what its going

to
be
like and
growing into maturity; being fertilized,
watered, and cared for while growing; the bearing of
fruit
like Itself in due time while specializing in doing that one
thing only; the maturing of the plant and fruit into full
maturity; the harvest when the crop is gathered and the first
and best seed saved for the next planting (at least 10%
or
tithe);
then the reaping of the sowing and carrying the
crop
to the market place to get paid for that done (reaping);
then
the plant dies after the harvest when its work
(usefulness)
is completed, its seed has been safely stored and saved
for
next seasons sowing; the no longer productive plant is
cut
under or burned and the field is plowed under and allowed
to
rest for the winter. Then the seed will be sown in the earth
again to die and the cycle will start all over again (and
will be better each year if the best seed is saved and sown)
so long as heaven and earth shall last. THIS IS THE STORY
OF
SEED AND PLANTS AND THIS IS THE STORY OF MAN AND LIFE.
19. I believe that, in growth, the more a plant lacks channels
through which to expand, the more it is inclined to burst
forth and flow with power. Limit the channels for growth and
you direct the growth toward that direction with greater
p ower . A pl ant can no t st and s t i l l; i t m us t g ro w or st art
to

When you set objectives (goals) you create the need and then the need itself draws the means to satisfy. V. I believe that everything increases after its own kind. I believe that in the law of growing. I believe a purpose of life is to have dominion—to overcome obstacles in order to grow. plant it. LAW OF INCREASE AND EXPANSION 1. You use what you have at hand and thereby create a vacuum (or need). It must move. I believe that you must plant the seed before you can reap the harvest. 2. I believe that to increase a stock of anything. Every form of life holds within itself vitality (energy) enough to draw to it every element it needs for growth and fulfillment. then the means will come. that thing must be used. 5. I believe that everything reproduces after its own kind. put it to work. put to work. 21. and then the means. This is why setting goals and objectives are so important. 3.Die. I believe to increase anything you must use that portion of the same thing that you have. do it with purpose and deliberate intent. I believe that you must sow before you . the need. This is the law of increase and expansion.you first create the need. I believe that you work for increase in the form of whatever you already have. it must act. 20. I believe that to increase and expand you must increase the rate of motion (movement). release it. 4. put out at interest. First. then nature (God’s Supply) comes along and fills the vacuum (or need). You must use it.

8. and you must give freely (release whatever you give) with intent and with no strings attached. I 6. then you can expect and look for a harvest.reap. (Except a kernel of wheat fall into the ground and die.if it is gone beyond hope of return (when you have planted it for an express purpose of giving and for growth). (The harvest may not be exactly in the form that you expected but it will be a harvest). 7. I believe that he that finds his life (in order to do so). I believe that you cannot lend it. I believe that you must give (First). . freely and fully. I believe that if a thing be dead to you. it cannot bear fruit). and with express intent and purpose of giving freely and fully. 9. believe that you must give before you can get. you must give it (sow).

that which you give away comes back to you with more of its own kind (what you sent . 10. all things are sold (paid for). use it again). I believe that if you do the thing you will have the power. I believe that in nature nothing is given. I believe that he that gives all he has (his best efforts) in the service of his fellowman shall find that in doing so he has planted seeds which will bring him a harvest of happiness and plenty. He paid the price of putting part of Himself into His Creation). 11. I believe that for any benefit received a tax is levied. 14. 15. 17. 13. he that loseth his life (turns it over to his subconscious properly) for obeyance of the laws shall find i t . I believe that the law of increase say that what you keep (hoard) to yourself you lose.Shall lose it (buried in subconscious or turned over to the subconscious). 16. you get something else. I believe that you must pay the price.(and you really want to make it grow. I believe that you must pay the full price. (When God created the universe. If you don't pay the full price you don't get the thing. It is not possible to buy anything for more or less than its price. I believe that everything has its price. 12.and then take what you have paid for.

This is the law of Increase. whatever you have that you can give. THEN. The reason for this I believe is because time and space is curved. your knowledge. BETTER BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SEND OUT TO OTHERS. 19. any act. I believe that this is so because all motion is cyclic. You’re talents. I believe that you must give (First). I believe that the tithe is the way the ancients used to show man the law of Increase and expansion. You must give it to work for others and by so doing you will increase it. 18. is in accord with the law of increase and expansion and brings the actor closer to the kingdom of heaven (expansion and growth). I believe that any act. is contrary to the law of expansion and separates the actor from the kingdom of heaven (expansion and growth). which injures another. which helps another. 20. and your self. . (You reap as you have sown). When you stop giving you begin losing. Give freely of what you have.out). that which you send out comes back. it circulates to the limits of its possibilities and then returns to its starting point. your experience.

26. praise. (You cannot serve two masters). 24. you will get the same thing in return . The parable of the talents expresses the law of increase and expansion. I believe that any unhappy man cannot be grateful.) "To him that hath will be more given.I believe that everything you give increases after its own kind. I believe that unhappiness.10. any unhappy man gets what he gives 27. health.hold on to what you have just for yourself . give it away. will even that which he hath be taken away. 11. If you give happiness.and in the same proportions. then the nearest vacuum (need) will pull what you have away. life to others. I believe that you must be continually giving .and getting. I believe that you get that which you give. to him that hath not. 25. I believe that you cannot increase two things at the same time. I believe that unhappiness is a criticism of God. (Law of Specialization). that you must give (use) them and get greater riches in return.and you won't have it long! Use it or lose it). You can only give one thing at the time. or at . (To have something you must use it. I believe that you cannot hold onto riches. I believe that it Implies dissatisfaction with the way God did things. service. 23. Remember when you keep something to yourself you stop your need of it and when your need stops then you have done away with the vacuum (need). (To have not . respect. put it out to work.

32.peace because he cannot be aware of God ’ s great truths . I believe that your life and your environment is an image of what you gave (give). 30.if he is unhappy. If a man lives only for himself he will be unhappy . . I believe that a man cannot get or find happiness and service unless he first gives happiness and service to others. 29. I believe that a man cannot love God when he hates or dislikes his neighbor (God is in his neighbor). you shall be loved.because he will not be giving any happiness to anyone and therefore cannot get because he did not give. 28. I believe get happiness. I believe that when you love (first). through adding to the happiness of others. I believe that it is God’s plan to make man win happiness through service. that you must first give happiness to 31.

you will get (reap) tomorrow. 37. I believe that what you have is an image of what you have given.24. you will not get (reap) tomorrow. 41. glorify it. and envy are forms of fear.I believe that what you have today is an image of what you gave (or didn’t give) yesterday (in the past). 39. 42. I believe that God gives me all I will accept. 36. I believe that fear shuts up or restricts or limits channels or entrances or doors through which I allow myself to receive (God can supply from any source). give thanks for it. I believe that what you do not give (sow) today. and image it in the attitude of these emotions. I believe that what you give (sow) today. I believe that to Increase or expand something you must love it. bless it. desire it. I believe that Jealousy. hate.I believe that the only limit to what you receive (reap) is the limit (extent) to what you give (sow). 38. Fear repels. praise It. . holds on to what it has (stops giving and therefore loses what it has) and is contrary to the law of increase and expansion. 40. You must give (release) these feelings to your subconscious toward whatever you want to increase.I believe that the only limit to opportunities (means) is the limit of human happiness (needs). 25.

This is the law of Increase. I believe that what you give. You will get what you give. so they (your WORDS) must be controlled and directed too. I believe that a higher rate of motion (movement) (more use) causes Increase. . Control and direct them to accomplish whatever you wish. 45.I believe that the law of increase says that use causes Increase—disuse causes decrease. It is sure. It is God’s Law. 44. So you must control and direct your thoughts just as you must control and direct your actions. Your words represent your Images. Use what you have now at hand. you will get. freely and without fear (of not getting more) and more will be given you back. 46. I believe that what you think will happen because thought is the giving of mental images. Like the sum coming up in the morning. Your thoughts are motion (action) in rehearsal.43.

47« I believe that you must appreciate (be fond of) the things you want to increase. and then use what you have to create greater need so that law of supply will come in and work. (Where your heart is. 49. I believe that what you are today is the fulfillment of yesterday's desires .that which you will be tomorrow will be the achievement of today’s visions and images and desires. 53. I believe that the law of increase is started by desire (heat). 48. (Establish the need. 52. 51. give all that you have (in you) to others. I believe that with discipline you will do tomorrow what you . (Increase the need (demand) . Do you want something? Give that something which you want to all you come in contact with.give what you have). right now. 50. whosesoever you are and whatever you are doing. then use whatever you have. The law of supply says that whosesoever there is a demand (need) it will be supplied when the demand is great enough). I believe that the first step in using the law of increase is desire (to increase whatever you want. there will be your treasure also). I believe that the natural law of supply and demand is that there will be supply according to the demand. (Think in larger sizes or units and increase is in larger sizes or units think in smaller sizes and increase is in smaller sizes). I believe that the law of increase works in direct ratio of your thoughts to the thing to be increased.

etc. love. money. I believe that the only limit to the amount of creative force.

THE LAW OF ATTRACTION

1. I believe that you attract that which has like rate of
motion
(movement). I believe that you attract that which has the
same or nearly same vibration.
2. I believe that the only way to change
(growth-change)
anything is by degrees, by minutes, a bit at a time, by
changing the rate of vibration or rate of motion by degrees.
3. I believe that this is so because the building blocks of the
universe is pure energy (God’s Flux) and it is the same.
4. I believe that the difference between things is caused
by
their vibrations or rate of motion. I believe that you build
up or tear down by degrees. You change the rate of motion.
5. I believe that you attract that which you are (your rate
of
motion) and repel that which you are not (a different rate
of
15

Motion).
6.

I believe that a low rate of motion attracts a low rate
of motion and repels a high rate of motion - and the
7. 8. inverse is also true.
9.
I believe that to attract something you must have desire
10. for that which you would attract.
11.
12. I believe that desire is the emotion that attracts like
to like.
13.

I believe that to attract something you must vibrate with
it, tune it in (think about it with desire- release the
energy of the thought by the transmitter of your desire
within you).
I believe that to attract something you must use it
(that which you would attract).
I believe that you must have a need for something in order
to attract it.
I believe that anything you attract must be something
you have created a need for. I believe that to attract
something you must have a reason (purpose) for needing
it.
I believe that to keep something you must give it away
(use it, work it, spend it).

I believe that giving attracts high rate of motion things
into your environment because giving increases your rate of
15. motion.
I believe that love, faith, praise, joy, blessing,
16. kindness, and happiness attracts high rate of motion
things.

I believe that you cannot attract that which you have not 16 .I believe that to attract more you must give more. 19-20. you forgive first. you smile first. I believe that whatsoever you give (really give) becomes a seed that you plant—for God to multiply back to you (by His Natural Laws). you serve first. you give happiness first. you love first. I believe that you must first put something in.

He does this through his natural laws and because He is The Source of Supply. I believe that all things with life in them attract to themselves the elements they require to meet their in-built Images. 22.Wanted to attract.do not use it. 28.use it. I believe that this holds true for everything in the universe. 29. I believe that you attract today that which you wanted to attract yesterday. I believe that as you give of yourself you attract the same amount from the other side of the equation except that God (through the law of compensation) adds to what you receive back. I believe that you will attract tomorrow that which you want to attract today. I believe that you must attract that which you want to attract. I believe that the law of attraction says that "that which you give (use) or would willingly give .you repel. 25. because God's Natural Laws are universal. 27. that which you withhold (refuse to use or give) or strongly desire to withhold . 26. 24.you attract.

"WISDOM" Happy he who has found wisdom. In her left hand are riches and honour. and your feet will not stumble. you need have no fear. My son. By his knowledge the depths burst forth And the clouds dropped dew. In wisdom the Lord founded the earth And by understanding he set the heavens in their place. keep watch over your ability and prudence. Refuse no man any favour that you owe him when it lies in your power to pay it. your sleep will be pleasant. And an ornament on your breast. and he will keep your feet clear of the trap. when you lie down. For wisdom is more profitable than silver. And the man who has acquired understanding. for the Lord will be at your side. Then you will go your way without a care. (Proverbs) . Her ways are pleasant ways And all her paths lead to prosperity. And the gain she brings is better than gold. you shall have it tomorrow'-when you have it already. they shall be a charm hung about your neck. 'Come back again. She is a staff of life to all who grasp her. do not let them slip from sight. Long life is in her right hand. She is more precious than red coral. When you sit. Do not say to your friend. And those who hold her fast are safe. Do not be afraid when fools are frightened or when ruin comes upon the wicked. And all your jewels are no matches for her.
