Juan Acevedo tracks in detail the common thread of many facile associations between Pythagoreanism, Kabbalah, and Sufism – the concept expressed in Greek by stoicheion, an indivisible synthesis of letter-number-element. The book sheds light on key aspects of cosmology, alchemy, and the Abrahamic religions.
