For both of you to stand even a remote chance of surviving in a con ned space together, whether a lift, office or worse, actually sharing a home, you must read this book before it's too late. Remember: they are not like ordinary people.

Matrix of Creation

Book website

Sacred numbers arose from ancient man's observation of the heavens, and represent the secrets of cosmic proportion and alignment. The ancients understood that the ripeness of the natural world is the perfection of ratio and that the planetary system--and time itself--is a creation of number. We have forgotten what our ancestors once knew: that numbers and their properties create the forms of the world.
