In Search of theMiraculous was originally to be calledFragments of an Unknown Teaching. It is a mosaic of interlocking ideas, setagainst the backcloth of turmoil in Russia covering the ten-year period 1914 to1924. Written by R D. Ouspensky, it was acknowledged by Gurdjieff as anaccurate record of his teaching, when he read it just before it was published25 years after the events it described. Its theme is freedom; from the tyrannyof the collective and, even more importantly, from the delusions of theindividual mind. Since it first appeared, it has been an inspiration forcountless numbers of seekers, and has gradually penetrated into popularculture.
Gurdjieff told Ouspensky, "A great deal can be found byreading. For instance, take yourself: you might already know a great deal ifyou knew how to read". This Indexshows the ideas in their various contexts as they emerged over the years, byfollowing their chronological appearance.
As a DuVersity publication, it serves the understanding ofcomplexity and how we can encounter and participate in the deep thinking ofhumanity. This thinking takes nothing less than 'all of everything' for itssubject, which is owned by no authority and is beyond any system whetherreligious or scientific.
