Editorial Reviews

The essence of Pythagoras and his school, in my humble opinion was the understanding that numbers, letters (remember that the Hebrew alphabet's letters ARE actual numerical values), colors, Music, are all vibrate and this vibration effects our universe in more profound ways that we actually understand. This is the basis of the "secret" of Pythagoras that I have tried to convey in my video (perhaps not so successfully). I see a strong connection of the Kabbalah, Numerology and the Tarot. The three should be studied and examined in tandem with this basic understanding kept in mind, always. When one focuses only on one facet of the Ancient Wisdom, it is akin to take a few segments of an orange and claiming to have the "whole orange expereince"...

Despite the first negative review of this dvd, I decided to buy it anyway. It seemed that the reviewer was only upset because it was in a more boring, "powerpoint" type of presentation. I thought that was nice to know, but decided I could put up with it as long as the information was worthwhile. Well, this presentation turned out to be far worse than I could've ever imagined. Here are some reasons why:

1) The "narrator" is a computer animated head and shoulders. He looks very realistic except that his mouth was not animated in detail so it doesn't even remotely match the words that are supposedly coming out. His eyes blink every now and then but he has not one ounce of facial expression otherwise. He is blankly staring at you and his head doesn't move. My own neck muscles hurt watching him stuck in one position. Because of his unnatural appearance, it felt like he was an agent for cult brainwashing. He also has a yellow halo around him. I found him very uncomfortable to watch so I just looked out the window and listened during the large chunks of time I was forced to watch him. Seriously, he was scary.

2) The audio (and video) quality was very poor. Again, I could overlook this if the content was interesting, but it really wasn't.

3) There is NO emotion in the narrators voice. It's like some guy picked up a very boring textbook and is just reading it. Boring is the key here - and I think it takes talent to make an interesting subject like this one boring.

4) The script does not lead you on a journey of discovery. It's just a bunch of ideas that you don't even have time to absorb. And they're so incomplete that I'm not sure it CAN be absorbed from this presentation.

Totally engrossing, "The Secret of Pythagoras" is a wonderful DVD, making simple what has long been complicated. It is fun and engaging, and should be a "must see" for anyone interested in mathematics and its historical origins. Great job, Mr. Nagy. Escaping Innocence: A Story Of Awakening As The Twig Is Bent

This DVD is basically a Power Point presentation in which the creator speaks about Pythagoras. It is not interesting at all! I am a math teacher and I bought this to show my students, but instead I'll be tossing it in the trash! It's not worth $1!
