The Nordic runes are taken off an ancient model for the structure of an Indo-European's mind. It is called Yggdrasil. That model was known to the ancient Greek philosophers, it underlies Gnosticism and Alchemy and it is consistent with Yoga and Hinduism. The common factor is that all of these peoples were Indo-Europeans. Explaining this model and the esoteric meaning of the runes is the principle purpose of this book. It also puts the runes' development into their historical context. The contemporary importance of this model is that it underlies Carl Jung's work in psychology, and also tells how to reach the highest level of person development.

My ancestors were of English and Danish origins Consequently, they were Pagans for many generations, So, if ancestral memory exist, I may have them. Nevertheless, they were in North America since colonial times and I was raised an Episcopalian in a family that was of that denomination for many generations. So, I have strong conscious connections to the Anglo-American, English, and enlightenment traditions. My professional training was in biology, statistics and modeling and my job experience has been in consulting mostly on biology-related public policy issues. I have written one book on history and many reports on public policy issues.$12.64–$22.55
The Executioners is a book that covers several Armenian related subjects. The main theme is about the executioners who assassinated the Ottoman Turkish perpetrators of the Armenian Genocide and how
they went about accomplishing their assignments. The other contents include a short history of Armenia, the events of Bank Ottoman, the foundation of Operation Nemesis, and what is going on in Turkey, Armenia, and Azerbaijan today. Operation Nemesis was the secret organization that formed after World War I to execute the perpetrators of the Armenian Genocide. These were the same Ottoman Turks who were condemned to death by their own Courts-Martial but were able to flee to safe havens until the commandos of Operation Nemesis caught up to them and execute them.
