If you want to take part in an on-going, world-wide, low-volume, high-level discussion of the topics addressed in The Sacred Landscape web site, you may enjoy the e-mail list email@example.com.
HOW TO SUBSCRIBE TO
What is an e-mail list? Essentially it is a mail-multiplier. You send a message to a central site (in this case egroups.com, which is home to hundredss of e-mail lists) and your message is duplicated and sent to every subscribed member of the list (including yourself). You don't need to go into usenet to read the messages -- they are delivered to you with your e-mail.
E-mail lists (sometimes called e-lists) can be managed manually by a human being, but they are usually managed by a software program that allows them to function automatically. The program resides at its own e-mail address (not the list's address) and because it is a robot (or "mail daemon"), it can only operate when given precise commands which it can "read" and act upon. Various brands of mail daemon software use different commands, so when you subscribe to e-lists, it's a good idea to copy and save the list of commands each one uses, so that you can stop the flow of e-mail messages if you are going away on vacation or lose interest in the discussion.
The e-lists at egroups.com are managed by a web-based software program, and as is customary with such programs, they contain a web interface that alows you to subscribe and unsubscribe. The interface also permits you to select the form in which you wish to receive messages from the sacredlandscapelist -- either as single pieces of e-mail, as a daily summary of subject lines, as a full-text daily digest, or via a link to the world wide web. In order to subscribe (or unsubscribe), you have to address yourself to egroups, not to the list itself. Here is the necessary link.
Fill in your address and click on the "join group" button. When you get to the egroups welcome page, complete your registration and choose your preferred form for receiving messages. It's that simple!If you have trouble with any of this, contact the human administrator for the sacredlandscapelist. His name is Barry Carroll and he can be reached directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The sacredlandscapelist is a public forum for sharing ideas, research and resources on a broad range of topics that fall under the heading of "interdisciplinary studies." Discussions comprise a lively interplay between students, scholars, and serious amateur students of mathematics, geometry, art history, comparative religion, astronomy, archaeology, and social history in the following subject areas:
- sacred geometry;
- temple and shrine architecture, both ecclesiastic and vernacular;
- sundials and astro-calendrical devices;
- latent geometrical order in the biological world;
- religious and Freemasonic iconography in architecture, theater, and garden design;
- the history and construction of labyrinths;
- garden follies, grottoes, and other forms of symbolic landscaping;
- relationships between architecture and music;
- geometric principles underlying formal garden design and sacred architecture;
- geomancy, feng shui, and ley lines;
- symbolic and religious considerations in agriculture (e.g. culture-
- specific astro-calendrical beliefs about planting times and harvest festivals);
- the history of mathematics, geometry, metrology, calendar-making, and related sciences;
- sacred site tourism;
- and contributions to a web-based Sacred Landscape Bibliography featuring information and commentary on what others have published on these topics.
The above subject list is by no means exhaustive, and we often wander into only vaguely related areas that we hope will throw light on our interests. However, despite the metaphysical, cosmological, and mystical underpinning beneath much of what is known as sacred geometry and sacred site architecture, we do have a special focus on how scientific understanding, as well as religious belief, informs our research into "sacred spaces," in both historical and contemporary contexts.
The tone of discussion on this e-list is informal and unmoderated. However, list members in general approach their subjects with an objective and scholarly attitude. The sacred landscape list accepts and acknowledges the value of subjective insights regarding some of these topics but also urges participants not to let mystical excess overwhelm their contributions to the list.
Common courtesy should prevail in all exchanges on this list, especially during disagreements. The list manager will intervene only if disagreements become excessively heated or sink to personal attack. Members should bring any inappropriate behavior that cannot be remedied by consensus to the attention of the list manager, Barrance C. Lespine, at his private e-mail address: email@example.com
Because the sacred landscape list is a public forum, open to anyone, any messages posted to it may be cross-posted or re-posted into (and out of) usenet newsgroups. Furthermore, in addition to the short-term posting archive that is maintained by our host organization, egroups, posts of substantive quality may be archived for future reading at the web-based Lucky Mojo Esoteric Archive -- where most of them will be found under the general heading "interdisciplinary studies."
