David Hockney's Secret Knowledge is a short and thrilling book with big new things to say about European painting. Hockney has followed his painter's technical curiosity into questions that have mostly been ignored by academic art history. Were the great leaps in verisimilitude achieved by European painters after the middle ages enabled by the use of mirrors and lenses? Illustrations are a large part of the story here. Linked by an exiguous text that breathes an engaging Boys' Own practical enthusiasm, the pictures create a tension between your desire to linger on the gorgeous images and your eagerness to turn the page and see where Hockney is going. This essay is followed by a very useful little anthology of writings on optics over the last 1, years, followed in its turn by an intermittently interesting sheaf of letters exchanged between Hockney and various academics on his research. Hockney started from a conviction that Ingres used a camera lucida - basically a small prism on a stalk - to draw rapid portrait likenesses on paper.
The passage of time is not always accompanied by an increase in knowledge, wisdom and truth.

Ancient occult knowledge Hall — In Scripture we are told that God made man in his own image. Occult groups, signifies the "Cross of Nero". The pine cone symbol, then, alludes to the Third Eye: it abounds in ancient art and architecture, a symbolic representation of our now-dormant window to the world. The occult symbols are associated with knowledge of the paranormal and study of the higher spiritual reality that goes beyond logic or pure reason. The laws, principles and formulae—the life and breath of modern science—were never made public, and in many cases never written down at all. In Tarot cards, an occult system of divination based on the Kabala, it symbolized strength or power. Alongside are spells and incantations to channel the occult energies of planets and stars to achieve power and enlightenment.
In any in-depth study of occult physics, one soon recognises a critical truth: Prior to recorded history many millennia ago there once existed an extremely advanced civilisation on the face of the earth. Global in scale, it was highly evolved in science and technology, and also spirituality. As time passed though, due to corruption, war, and celestial catastrophe, this ancient civilisation was all but wiped out. Only a remnant remained, mostly composed of the unlettered and the uncultured, as the ancient Greek philosopher Plato recorded. Civilisation had thus to begin all over again.
It is no ordinary manuscript. In antiquity, it was common practice when parchment supplies were limited to scrape the ink from old manuscripts, with chemicals or pumice stones, and reuse them. Rossetto, a PhD student, was given the images as an afterthought, when an older scholar complained that reading them was beyond his failing eyesight. But these were no ordinary photographs, either. They were taken using a state-of-the-art technique known as multispectral imaging, or MSI, in which each page of a text is photographed many times while illuminated by different colors and wavelengths of light, and then analyzed using computer algorithms to find a combination that most clearly distinguishes the two layers of text. The style of the script suggested that it was probably written in Egypt in the fifth or sixth century, and Rossetto expected another Christian text. Instead, she began to see names from mythology: Persephone, Zeus, Dionysus.
