How the spirit influences matter (Macro Group) and Leonardo cuoco (Om Editions). The event is in collaboration with the ASEQ Publishing Bookstore and the Italian Federation of Writers. Introduced by Prof. Natale Rossi, president of Fuis, Guglielmo Giovanelli Marconi and Massimiliano Kornmüller.

The Keys to Knowledge. How the spirit affects matter

(Macro group)

Assuming that the physical world derives from the metaphysical world in the same way that ice derives from water, as the spiritual masters of all time affirm, there is a principle capable of explaining the contradictions of physiognomy, the successes and failures of psychosomatic medicine, the relationships that bind the physical world to the metaphysical one?

The answer is yes.

It is the principle of the Respondence of matter to spirit and we can formulate it as follows:
The spirit influences matter with a force that is inversely proportional to the density of the matter itself.

This principle, inherent in the density of matter and its reaction times to stimuli emanating from the spirit, is the keystone for a profound understanding of the relationship between physics and metaphysics.

Discovered and analyzed by the author in all its facets, it will revolutionize our global understanding of reality, of the dynamics that govern the generation and maintenance of forms in this universe.

“The principle of the Respondence of matter to spirit has important implications in the understanding of the mechanisms that regulate the formation and maintenance of the physical body, in its aesthetics and physiology, as well as experience in a broad sense, the events that occur in what , a little wrongly and a little rightly, it is called the “external world”. In fact, physics has its roots in metaphysics. So far many mechanisms have not been understood and this for the simple fact that science excludes from its sphere that spiritual part of reality that escapes the experiment as it is abstract and qualitative and which nevertheless represents the metaphysical foundation of that part of reality that we can see and touch. “

“If the physical world is perceived as something independent of the subject, it is only because of the inertia and apparent static nature of its forms, characteristics that it has assumed as a consequence of the high degree of density of the matter of which it is constituted.”

“If the material world derives from the spiritual world (psychic and archetypal) like ice derives from water (since matter is a crystallization of the spirit), the material forms of the body of the human being (physiology and physiognomy) and of the world that surrounds it can only correspond to our spiritual being (archetypal and psychic) ​​and to our “inner world”. “

“The spirit constantly alters matter, but matter opposes to the spirit a force which is directly proportional to its density and which manifests itself as inertia, as dullness, as the slowness of matter in following the spirit.”

The Keys of Knowledge is also a synthesis of the metaphysics of various cultures and the teachings of many spiritual masters, an illuminating treatise that sheds light on many still unsolved enigmas of esotericism. Written in a simple and witty way, the volume is enriched by the ironic illustrations by Riccardo Passoli.

Booktrailer (first chapter):

Leonardo cook (Om Editions)

Among the praises and criticisms of the television series on Leonardo, in the spring of 2021, among the restrictions due to the pandemic, was released, for the types of the Om Editions, “Leonardo cook”, a philosophical and initiatory novel, illustrated in a lighthearted and amusing way by Piacenza Riccardo Passoli, starring a young Leonardo da Vinci intent on opening a vegetarian tavern first in Florence and then in Milan, under the aegis of Ludovico il Moro.

In the novel, together with this unpublished and hilarious version of Leonardo, vegetarian and animal rights activist for the occasion, as well as “initiated into the mysteries”, various illustrious characters appear such as Pico della Mirandola, Marsilio Ficino, Lorenzo the Magnificent, Savonarola, Ludovico il Moro and even Paracelsus, Cornelio Agrippa and Ramon Llull (by virtue of a spell). In a series of Leonardo’s conversations with these interlocutors, topics such as vegetarianism, raw food, psychosomatic medicine, physiognomy, magic, alchemy and… the secret of eternal youth are addressed!
