connections
The Greek philosopher Heraclitus had said: “A hidden connection is stronger than one we can see.” Otto Maier was always fascinated with Time. Things occupy space—but how many of them there are (or could be) belonging to time? If you take off the face of a clock you won’t find time there, only human fabrication. Those numbers, circling round, make...
Nornir and Runes
We take it for granted that the past is fixed and time is linear. History always happened the way we remember it happening. But how do we know for sure that that’s the case? Otto Maier started to work on a project called “Nornir” in the 30ties and 40ties. To understand project Nornir and its goals you need to step...
Heisenberg
The uncertainty principle is among the the most famous (and also probably most misunderstood) concepts in physics. It demonstrates that there is a fuzziness in nature, an elementary limit to the things we could know about the behaviors of quantum particles and, consequently, the tiniest scales of nature. Of these scales, the most we can hope for is to compute...
universe
Otto Maier like Heisenberg certainly had some most extraordinary concepts in physics and reality. Arthur Young wrote a remarkable book: Reflexive Universe, The Geometry of Meaning, and the important compendium Consciousness and Reality, co-edited with mathematician Charles Musès. Young stressed the nature of intentionality, an area neglected by science, but that, in and of itself, is linked to the term...
Wali Widi Widar
Otto Maier’s secret texts. Is there more than meets the eye? Wali – Wili – Widi – Widar. In Eddic mythology Odin is avenged on the Fenris wolf by Widar. Wili is named alongside We as Odin’s or Wotan’s brother. According to the third poem in the Poetic Edda, the vafthrudnismal (Vafþrúðnismál). Widar and Wali (who avenges Baldur and Hödur)...
Otto Maier
The break between the scientific comprehension of time as well as our general knowledge of time has bothered thinkers all through history. It has deepened since physicists have slowly stripped time of most of the characteristics we usually ascribe to it. Now the rift between the time of physics and the time of experience is approaching its logical conclusion, for...
quantum mechanics
According to the great Richard Feynman, no one really understands quantum theory. It presents us with a truly bizarre picture of Reality, a picture that, for a long time, we have only succeeded in making intelligible by supposing that the existence and character of reality depends on our own minds. This view is known as the Copenhagen Interpretation (named after...
Aurora Borealis
It’s been said that Otto Maier headed to Pohjola. Maybe this was an astray for the powerful men who tried to track him down. Maybe it’s just a clue or perhaps a code. But where’s Pohjola? Pohjola_ (poch’-yo-la) means the Northland something very  similar to Hyperborea. Kalevala Far up in the ice-bound north, where the sun is almost invisible in...
project Nornir
There are a lot of old rumors of work in time experimentation. Especially during the early 1990s at popular UFO-conferences. One of the hypes was the “Montauk Project“.  Which is believed to be an extension or continuation of the World War 2 Philadelphia experiment. Preston B. Nichols and Peter Moon wrote a book about this topic titled The Montauk Project: Experiments in Time. It...
David Friedrich
Lost in the world. As an instance of nature, man is only a reed, liable to be crushed at any moment by the forces of an immense and blind universe in which his existence is but a particular blind accident, no less blind than would be the accident of his destruction. As a thinking reed, however, he is no part...
Otto Maier Truth
Reveries on the search for Veritas … It is really crystal clear that the concept of dangerous truths has, for a very long time, been widespread, not to say a cliché. A little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing. Curiosity killed the cat. Ignorance is bliss. What you don’t know won’t hurt you. On a much deeper level, one...
When following Otto Maier’s path one will meet somewhere on his/her road, Böhme. Like the contemporary student of the inner world, alchemists were concerned about differentiating imagination from fantasy. They were aware that true imagination possesses a power and depth that fantasy does not possess. Jakob Boehme was one of those who warned against the delusions of fantasy. Struggle for...
