In Quicksilver Wolfie, Tala and Zi’ib discover an ancient magic square which helps them to unlock the secrets surrounding their lives….
According to John Michell in his book ‘The New View over Atlantis’ the ancients used patterns of number which correspond to particular geometric shapes to represent aspects of universal energy. Magic Squares are just one example of the number patterns traditionally used for magical invocation, and the numbers in them were often used in measuring the plans for ancient temples.
