Today the Think Tank HO Group got notice that the interactive capability it was promised is now working. Geoffrey Odhner has completed the program for building a draft Encyclopedia of Correspondences as described below. Only members of the HO Group will be able to follow the progress of the project, but the public will see items from time to time that summarize the higher meanings such as correspondences that the think tank has agreed upon. Key members of the group will be able to key into the draft version topics in the form of a word or phrase, various higher meanings for those topics in various contexts, and comments to explain and discuss the implications of those entries. When the number of items on the various meanings of various topics that are published on this site has reached a critical mass, so to speak, people will start to come here to check on the fruit of the think tank's investigations.
HUMAN ORGANIC NOW

~~~ Today is the opening day of the HO-Group think tank. We have accumulated seven charter members, and have re-designed the web pages with an improved web map. Notice, almost every page has navigation bars so that the viewer can jump to any place on the Human Organic web site that he wants. For HO-Group members, this includes the think tank pages. It is colorful and friendly. Happy charter day. ORO

mind, to the structure and function of society, and to transcendental

|~~~ Just installed, an anthology of a project on correspondences at the ANC conducted in the early 90's by the faculty Correspondences Committee, and edited by Geoffrey S. Childs, then president of ANC. It's called Correspondences - A Key to Distinctiveness. ORO
|~~~ An entirely new format for the Human Organic web site
has been provided to give you, the viewer, easier access to the
things of your particular interest. A web page map heads
the home page. With it you can follow the arrows in the shortest
path to your destination. New pages have been added to organize
the PROJECT part of the site. We hope the formatting of the
project files will provide a structure for the organization of project
task force groups.
~~~ New to this site is a major part of the pothumous book of Sanfid E. Odhner we had lead you to expect. The work had not been competed, and some sections still remain to be organized for publication here. ORO
|~~~ New to this site: The Natural Basis of Spiritual Reality, by Norman Berridge. This book has been used as a text book in The Human Organic course at ANC. It is the cutting edge of the doctrine of correspondences! Some polishing up of the text still remains to be done, but the current condition of the book is quite readable. ORO.
|~~~ A lot of editing has been done since last notice.
1) Much of Physiological Correspondences has been cleaned
up; work on this is continuing. 2) The
Human Organic Notes now has the graphic images and links
installed. Further editing is planned, but in the meantime,
please use it! 3) Dr. Hugo Odhner's personal copy of The
Human Organic Notes which contains marginal comments and attachments
has been scanned in graphic mode onto a CD and is available to students
at the Swedenborg Library, Bryn Athyn, PA. 4) Carl Th. Odhner's
Correspondences of Egypt
is proof read and contains all the graphic images.
~~~ We have obtained a copy of a pothumous book by Sanfrid Emanuel Odhner called You Are the Hero and a preliminary scan of the text. We plan to publish this book on this site for its first public showing (after we have caught up with the other jobs mentioned above. ORO
|~~~ Notice that we have just introduced a scan of a book by Worcester entitled Physiological Correspondences. This gives a vivid overview of the relationship of the body organs to mental and spiritual processes. In 1976 500 copies were printed by the Swedenborg Scientific Association. The scan still needs final proof reading. ORO
