by Douglas Forbes, with Richard Higgins
According to the flyleaf of this book, Forbes has a PhD in Metaphysics and has travelled widely, exploring a wide range of esoteric, scientific and mathematical systems. Through this, he arrived at the Human Pin Code – essentially, a complex and sophisticated numerology (though he'd not be thrilled with that description).
But it's not a form of determinism. "Within our programming," he says, "there is a choice in how we respond to our environment, which is what makes each of us unique. Each number in a Pin Code has approximately ten 'active' and ten 'reactive' attributes. These are the tools in a personality toolbox – by knowing what tools we have, we can understand how our personality functions, and thereby make choices on how we wish to undertake our life."
I've had the privilege of both a private telephone reading with Forbes, and seeing him speak. He's larger than life, with a personality that seems divided between his giant intellect and a quite sweet playfulness. Certainly, he's convincing: in my private reading, there was plenty of food for thought; and this book is a must-read for anyone who's fascinated with numbers and whether, in fact, they have any power or meaning at all. It's difficult not to be a believer while in the depths of this book.
