Human Body
THE LIVING LIBRARY: COSMOECONOMICS FINANCIAL MARKET FORECASTING SALON: WILLIAM D. GANN: THE LAW OF VIBRATION: Human Body
Friday, June 24, 2005 - 12:24 am Igor Alexeychuk When I `ve read Gann`s Course I was wondered by one phrase: Woman is more perfect than man because she can create. Her body contains 12 openings. MAn`s body only 11. The 12 represents the 12 signs of Zodiac. !!!The fact than man`s body only contains 11 openings proves why a man betrayed Christ and not a woman.!!! It`s not obvious for me - ability for betraying of Christ and number of openings... Who can help to clear this problem? Tuesday, July 5, 2005 - 03:43 am smithsonjames Dear Sir, Thank you for your query. At first sight, Ganns statement does indeed appear to be illogical or even nonsense. However, our initial response in trying to understand Gann should be to take a step backwards and to put this short course, entitled The Human Body, into context. By doing this we will note the following: 1) Gann wrote this short course, entitled The Human Body, in January 1931 when he was 52 years old. Ganns career, as a highly successful stock and commodities market investor with an outstanding ability for accurate long-term financial forecasts, had by then lasted over 20 years (it may be viewed as having started around the time of his interview to The Ticker & Investment Digest in December 1909). 2) Some years earlier he had publicly forecast the contemporary economic and financial conditions. i) For example, in his semi-autobiographical novel, entitled The Tunnel Thru The Air (written in 1927), he wrote: Robert calculated that from March 1931 until the end of June 1932 would be troublesome times for the United States. Depression, war and panic would hang over the destinies of his country. Robert had gone deeply into the Bible study in order to learn more about the great science of astrology (page 213). ii) Moreover, in April 1930 (i.e. less than one year earlier) he had written his book Wall Street Stock Selector in which he stated: The coming investors panic will be the greatest in history, because there are at least 15 to 25 million investors in the United States who hold stocks in the leading corporations, and when once they get scared, which they will after years of decline, then the selling will be so terrific that no buying power can withstand it (page 203). 3) Therefore on 17th January 1931, as Gann wrote his short course entitled The Human Body, the Dow Jones Industrial Average had fallen from its peak of 386 (on 3rd September 1929) to 165 (i.e. a 57% fall). However, the DJIA would of course continue falling until it bottomed out at 41 on 8th July 1932 (i.e. a 75% fall from 17th January 1931 and a 90% fall from its peak). As stated above, in 1927 (in his novel The Tunnel Thru The Air) Gann had forecast that the coming depression would last until The end of June 1932, when in fact it lasted 8 days later (until 8th July 1932). 4) Gann realised that he had discovered a new paradigm for trading and investment. It appears to be a fact that Mr Gann has developed an entirely new idea as to the principles governing stock market movements. He bases his operations upon certain natural laws which, though existing since the world began, have only in recent years been subjected to the will of man and added to the list of so-called modern discoveries . I know that he (i.e. Mr Gann) has a firm grasp of the basic principles which govern stock market movements, and I do not believe any other man on earth can duplicate the idea or his method at the present time (Ticker & Investment Digest interview, December 1909). 5) Moreover Gann was confident that his paradigm, or methodology, worked in practise: A man

may evolve a beautiful theory for making money in the stock market, and he may try it out on paper and find that it works. It is apparently successful, but when he applies it to actual trading and begins to buy and sell, he then finds the weak point and the theory fails in actual practice. I know whereof I speak, for I have tried dozens of different theories, put my money down and lost; exploded the theory, discarded it and started all over againAfter over twenty years of diligent study of the stock and commodity markets, I feel that I am competent to write something from experience that will prove valuable to others in actual practical trading. The fact that my method of forecasting has stood the test of time is sufficient proof that I have solved the problem (What Fits A Man To Write As An Authority in appendix to Wall Street Stock Selector, 1930). 6) Finally Gann felt privileged to have received this gift of forecasting and he made an important comment on this in his semi-autobiographical novel The Tunnel Thru The Air: Robert remained a few days longer at Silver Springs. Enjoyed being with Lady Bersford and told her of his understanding of the Bible and natural laws. She said that the pure, clean life he had led was what had brought him in contact with the spirits that had revealed to him the truth (page 265). Indeed, Gann raised this important issue in the foreword of that book: I believe this book will prove interesting and valuable to men and women in all walks of life. If it does, you will be thankful to the power that guided my hand in showing you the way to eternal truth (foreword to The Tunnel Thru The Air). Therefore we can conclude that on 17th January 1931, when Gann wrote his short course entitled The Human Body, he was 52 years old, he had been forecasting the stock and commodity markets for over 20 years and he was probably at the height of his forecasting ability. Moreover he was clearly confident that his method worked because it was apparently based on an eternal truth and he was keen to guide others along this same path. Therefore, Ganns fundamental aim in writing his short course entitled The Human Body (and indeed in writing all his other books and courses) was to show his students the way to eternal truth. In pursuit of this aim, Gann encouraged his students to think widely, deeply and creatively and to not necessarily be bound by the rules of conventional logic. This is apparently necessary in order to break out of the bounds of conventional wisdom, to identify a new paradigm and to thereby find the way to eternal truth. Turning specifically to the paragraph in Ganns course entitled The Human Body that you are having difficulty with, here are some suggestions. 1) Gann is implying that perfection and creation are associated with a complete set of all 12 signs of the zodiac. This is implicit in the following quotations from the Bible: i) And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God (Luke 4, 3-4, quoted by Gann in the introduction to his book The Magic Word, 1950). ii) And he humbled thee and suffered thee to hunger and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live (Deuteronomy 8,3, quoted by Gann on page 10 of The Magic Word). iii) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1,1, quoted by Gann on page 16 The Magic Word). This quotation from John 1,1 reminds us of a paragraph quoted above from Ganns 1909 interview to The Ticker & Investment Digest: He (i.e. Gann) bases his operations upon certain natural laws which, though existing since the world began, have only in recent years been subjected to the will of man, and added to the list of so-called modern discoveries. Thus, for the avoidance of doubt, the Word of God is synonymous with astrological vibrations, and hence astrology was apparently the basis of Ganns forecasting ability. 2) Conversely, Gann is implying that those who do not benefit from all 12 signs of the zodiac/ every Word of God experience (amongst other things) suffering and betrayal, as implied by the following quotation: Then certain of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, Master we would see a sign from thee. But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas (Matthew 12, 38 & 39, quoted by Gann on page 69 of The Tunnel Thru The Air). 3) Gann is also implying in this same paragraph that 12 is a perfect number, whereas 11 most

certainly is not. Indeed, throughout his writings Gann emphasised the importance of the number 12 and its multiples because they represent natural support and resistance levels. Thus, for example, 12 x 4 = 48. 2 x 48 = 96. 2 x 96 = 192. 2 x 192 = 384. The importance of these natural support and resistance levels can be seen as follows: 1) The Dow Jones Industrial Average peaked at almost exactly 384 on 3rd September 1929 and on 13th November 1929 bottomed out at almost exactly 192 (i.e. 50% decline in 10 weeks). 2) The Dow Jones Rail Average peaked at almost exactly 192 on 3rd September 1929. They also bottomed out on 13th November 1929 but did not fall 50% to 96, but instead fell exactly one third to 128. 3) These examples illustrate not only the importance of natural support and resistance levels based on multiples of the number 12, but two other principles that Gann emphasised. Firstly that stocks and commodities make tops and bottoms in some exact mathematical proportion to other tops and bottoms. Secondly, financial markets move more rapidly at higher levels (and hence more slowly at lower levels). 4) Finally, if we believe that in this paragraph from his course The Human Body Gann is highlighting the importance of the zodiac/ astrological influences and also the number 12 and its multiples as natural support and resistance levels, then we should look for corroboration or confirmation elsewhere in Ganns writings. We do indeed find this. More specifically, in 1954 Gann wrote to one of his students recommending that he study astrological influences on the soybean market: The longitude of the planets and the longitude of the average of the planets determine the resistance levels as the price of soybeans moves around each cycle of 24 cents per bushel (Gann astro letter, January 1954). Since Gann died 18 months later (in June 1955), this was one of his final lessons to his students. Moreover, it appears to repeat the same point (but somewhat more clearly) that Gann made in his The Human Body course (written 23 years earlier). I hope this is helpful. Best wishes, James Smithson. Monday, July 18, 2005 - 07:39 am Lee Stein Thank you for your excellent information. I had done extensive planetary latitude research several years ago and did not see consistent chart correlations. It never occurred to me to do add positions to obtain a cumulative multi-planetary position. Further, I hadn't run across the idea in any of the extensive readings I've done of astrological texts. So thanks. A great tool for researchers seeking detailed long-term Ephemeris data online -- NASA's ONLINE EMPHEMERIS GENERATOR is an absolutely invaluable tool and I highly recommend it: http://ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/eph Drawing on your concept of a cumulative position and employing the above resource, I've run a couple of years as follows: 1. Heliocentric cumulative position of Mercury, Mars, Earth & Venus (Longitude & Latitude [excl. Earth of course]) 2. Geocentric ditto and of course substitute Sun for Earth. Most of my work in the past has concerned Heliocentric research. However, using the cumulative approach yielded some promising first results with Geocentric data. I'm not prepared to say definitively since multiple years data are needed to confirm the interesting first pass of a couple of years. It also seems potentially useful to add in the planets from Jupiter outward. As of this writing, I excluded Moon position because the moon moves so fast that a cumulative position would move even faster, rendering it useless. I'm curious what you mean by an AVERAGE POSITION. Do you mean a straight mathematical

position of totaling all planets and divide by 4, if using four planets? I've been totaling all Longitude and reducing the total back to a range of 0 to 360 degrees, but not dividing by the number of planets calculated. On latitude, I've observed several interesting phenomenon with a straight cumulative addition of Mercury, Venus & Mars. Further work on various combinations is required and in process. Again, thanks for the useful and stimulating note. Lee Stein
