A law that describes and organises the processes of adjustment throughout the Universe probably goes well beyond most people’s beliefs. Nevertheless, the reality of such a law may be the gift that has been offered to us by three writers: by the renowned stock market trader William Gann in a well-known, but ill-understood, novel; by the great mindfulness exponent George Gurdjieff in a difficult-to-read treatise on the condition of mankind; and by St. Matthew in an otherwise obscure piece of text in his Christian Gospel. Concealed within the writings of all three authors is a very specific pattern that reflects the pathway of adjustment that will be taken by a living system in response to changed circumstances. The pattern symbolises a behavioural law that has been called the law of vibration.
Of the three writers, Mr. Gann provided the most detailed representation of this pattern, and Mr Gurdjieff provided an explanation of the processes involved. But it is not just a theoretical nicety; it is a practical tool. It can, for example, be used to track and anticipate fluctuations in financial market prices and in economic activity. In other words, beneath the apparent randomness of life, there is a form of order that has not hitherto been recognised. In fact, knowledge of this coherence seems to have been held as a secret by a small number of people spread over the centuries. It has been my very great privilege to uncover some of the detail of the law of vibration and to confirm that it does apply to collective human behaviour.
An account of research I undertook, a description of the pattern of vibration and thoughts about how the pattern applies to collective human behaviour in the financial markets and beyond can be found in my new book, The Law of Vibration.
