Planes of Being continues the author's mission to take the esoteric and make it exoteric. There are deep and rich seams of ancient and arcane kwledge which are often thought to be merely mythological in their nature and neither relevant or applicable to our modern day lives. Examples might include the I Ching, the Tree of Life or indeed the good old Bible. In Flavours of Thought, Tom showed how the Major Arcana of the Tarot could be deconstructed to allow all of us to access the wisdom contained within it. With a natural and enquiring engineering mind, he then concocted Recipes from groups of flavours to solve common malaises, capitalise on opportunities and to give enlightenment into our nature. Tom dusted off years of 'Chinese Whispers', got right down to the true core meaning of each card in the Tarot and explained each in an easily digestible manner. The message in the book is simple - by understanding and controlling our thoughts, we control and co-create what we think of as the reality around us. Planes of Being uses the same principles and approach to take the lid off the 56 cards in the Mir Arcana. Again, the book doesn't focus on the meanings, symbology and metaphors of the specific imagery in any particular set of cards. Rather it exposes the original meanings of the structure and numerology of the deck. As for Flavours of Thought, Tom aims are n-academic and n-theoretical. Planes of Being gives us a practical, real world tool we can use to answer and gain insight on absolutely any question we can think of. In short, it teaches each of us how, by tuning in, we can each become Wayseers, Magicians and Oracles. It also gives some clues as to the future of our evolution as we edge closer to a state called the Merged Mind.
