At a time when even high church officials no longer conceal the fact that their belief in angels has ceased, there has been a surprising turn of events: scientific research brings us a wealth of proof that the medieval teaching about angels was right after all. Creative personalities throughout history have drawn inspiration from mysterious depths of soul - and they have captured simultaneously, and across the whole world, the same aesthetic, philosophical, religious and constitutional impulses. Regardless of whether they are atheists, Christians or Native Americans, they have given accounts of identical or similar inner revelations. These revelations correspond to the traditional archetypes, angels and deities; and in history they alternate in a cyclical chronological order that was still known to medieval Christian and Arabic scholars and which has been handed down from the treasury of ancient Babylonian temple wisdom.
The conclusion of the Bratislavian mathematician and sophiologist Dr. Emil Páleš is clear: angelology was not a speculation! This follows from a more than 15-year-long complex research into waves of creativity in history, using exact methods of mathematical statistics. Expert opponents have had the wind taken out of their sails and the Church is ill at ease. Age-old wisdom has taken wing and risen like a Phoenix from the ashes, rejuvenated and more radiant than ever before.
Dr. Emil Páleš
graduated at the Faculty of Mathematics & Physics at the Comenius University in Bratislava. Thereafter teaching at the Chair of Artificial Intelligence. In 1989-1994 head of the research project "Computational model of Slovak language" at the Institute of Linguistics of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, where he defended also his PhD. thesis in philology.
Since 1994 he founded and is leading the Sophia foundation. Seven years editor-in-chief of the Sophia journal quarterly. He ranks among the few representants of sophiology in the world. In his work he carries on Solovjov`s effort for the synthesis of sciences, humanities, arts & religion as well as the idealistic biology of Goethe and Portmann. Of his research the discovery of periodic and synchronous time-patterns in history and in the evolution of nature are of fundamental importance.
