“The first step in the organization of thought therefore, is to reduce the complexity of knowledge to a more or less simple program and to discover from the whole philosophical literature of the race those parts which are of primary significance. He who uses this process will soon discover that beneath a vast and complex philosophical literature are a few basic principles. These principles once grasped, equip the mind to cope with any issue with at least a fair measure of true intelligence.” - Manly P Hall (A Monthly Letter, May 1st 1934)
In these times there is so much white noise to sift through in our search for knowledge it can be difficult for the student to know where to begin. My advice to all students is to always try and source the most ancient and purest Texts.
