I thought the symbols would be helpful with interpreting dreams and visions, but I'm finding error that undermines the credibility of the book. Here are some examples: 1) The author says the number six is regarded as the "perfect number." (No, number six is the number of "man," in a very negative sense. Seven is the number of perfection.) 2) The author says the phoenix symbolizes Christ and the resurrection. (No, the phoenix symbolizes sun worship. It's credited with the power of infernal regeneration.)
