I agree with another reviewer that the publisher's/editor's comments are equally, if not more, interesting and educational than the book itself. When it comes to The Temple in Man, I'm more fascinated by its effect on other people than what it actually provides. By itself, the book is a man's quest to find empirical evidence to support what he already knows intuitively. His tenacity and what he reveals about sacred architecture says more about the author himself than Universal Wisdom or Truth.
I do not deny the discoveries and premises in the text, but what good are they without the proper context which the information is inadvertently ripped from? The commentators try to instill the missing links with their elaborations, and like I mentioned before, their appendices are important, if not the prize itself that makes the purchase worthwhile.
The Temple in Man is proof that mainstream anthropological studies are shortsighted. Mystery Teachings bring to the table the philosophical and mathematical backdrop needed to essay the currently defunct spiritual machines archeologists incorrectly refer to as mere tombs and ancient aesthetics. The author's work, despite its meandering, foggy-like style, was not in vain. He begins what others should finish--and eventually will.
