Utrecht: Eureka Editions, 2007. First edition. This study covers Gurdjieff's concepts of subjective and objective time, time as energy and time as space. It exposes his exposition of the universality of semiotic expressions in the arts - dance, theatre, weaving, and writing - opposing a general devolution of man's linguistic capacities in mundane social contexts such as advertising, journalism and business.
His ontology, or science of being, is revealed as issue of the economy of time and use of languages. The three series of his work develop these ideas incrementally not only in the context of Western thought but also in the light of Near and Far Eastern wisdom literature.
