My Old frind Erik Torell has sended me this message. I have mentioned this forum to him, he calls it Tarot-group, but never mind:

"Hi Sven.

It is good to hear from you. Sorry about your hopefully temporary ill health. Hope you will
be better soon.

Today Diane finished the work on our book. So we can to send it to Authorhouse soon.
Now that we are nearly there, could you contact the group of Tarot aficionados as my representative, please?

Sven think about this. I discovered TAI in February 1981, began to write it in February 1991 and we finished the work in February 2015. All in all it took 24 years to write it.
WOW man that was quite some time. What say you?

Naturally I will send you a copy when I have it. As I don't know anything about the Tarot group, that you mention, I need to know where they are.

TAI will be produced by Authorhouse in Indiana USA and sold via Amazon and Barnes and Noble in Boulder Colorado, Chicago, London, because we live there, which now has 8000 000 people, Los Angeles and in Newyork. They are all major cities with millions of people.

Los Angeles is where Hollywood is. A lot of people will be interested in my discovery too.

Boulder Colorado is known for its people with an interest in all alternative subjects.

I don't know where the tarot group, that you mention is, or if they can get it from there.

"TAI" has 364 pages. 3 represents the three systems that make up TAI and 64 links with the 64 hexagrams of the I Ching. As far as I know I am the only person in all the years that these three systems have exsisted, who discovered this connection, so I believe that "TAI" will sell well.

I have also written a four-line modernized Viking style poem for each card plus several larger ones too

After having worked on the book for 24 years, I believe, that whatever will come to us, is well deserved.

Can you let me know where the Tarot group, that yo mention, is situated please. Perhaps you could inform them about "TA" and be my link to them rather than giving them my e-mail address, as I do not want a lot of people to write to me. You could be my link in Dk.

In return I will send you a copy of TAI, when I have it and the names of the two I Ching books that I have used. It is also necessary that you use the same 2 I Ching versions, that I have used for many years. Let me know their reponse to what you tell them; but never give my email address to others. You will be my only contact in your part of the World.

Love and peace

Erik.

More from Erik Torell:

"Hi Sven.

Just a thought. My book will come out as a paper-back and as e-book stubs, that you can load onto your computer for next to nothing, as there are no production costs involved.
I could end you some, when I have them. Then you could forward them to the group, that you mentioned. It will cost a tiny amount to load on computers, but it would be worth it.

I'll contact you later, when I know more. Perhaps you could contact the group, that you mentioned. Then we can see where we go from there. I don't want to write to them myself.

I'll be back to you, when you write to me again.


Love and peace.

Erik.

A poem that Erik Torell once wrote concerning some aspects of this book:

"TAI Divination


In ninety-eighty-one I stumbled upon a discovery, quite unexpected.
How ancient Tarot, Astrology and I Ching they themselves connected.
It took place in a single night; but later selected details were corrected.
This proved the existence of the Divine to me. How else could this be?
For a start, how could systems so far apart link in a glimpse of infinity?
After five thousand years it appeared from nowhere that I could see.
It was so clear. I had no fear, no strange being near no voice to hear.
I laid the cards in TAI’s pattern out of curiosity and now, TAI is here.

King Fu Hsi, 2852- 2738 B.C., the founder of the Chinese civilization,
Wrote the laws of humanity to obtain sanity and guide the whole nation.
He threw sticks on the ground. From the patterns he found and clearly saw.
The eight trigrams evolved and people became involved with “Divine Law”.
Through countless ages ancient sages read I Ching’s pages and saw no flaw.
The eight trigrams formed a system of divination via hexagrams sixty-four.
King Wen, 1500 B. C., arranged the order of the hexagrams forever more.
Since then, Confucius, G. W. Leibniz and C. G. Jung praised the book, I adore.

Astrology began in Mesopotamia five millennia ago. They wanted to know,
How the fate of their Emperor and nation would flow, which way they’d go.
Since then it grew, helped people make choices and spread world-wide.
Now it’s a major industry, following Heaven’s voices; but you must decide.
Is it superstition based on ancient tradition or a genuinely divine science?
Only reality can with finality judge if it is banality or a heavenly appliance.
It has been here so long. Could all these millions of people be wrong?
Is the evidence sufficiently strong? Where does Astrology really belong?

Tarot, seen to serve the “Evil Beast”, came to Europe via Middle-East
Eight centuries ago, at least. It was used for predictions at many a feast.
This led to our modern sets. Via lucky bets many won money on games.
Prying friars did cry: “Gamblers would surely fry in Hell’s hottest flames”.
Pastors kept praying that those who were straying would return to the fold,
To save their soul ere they lost it for gold. Winning has such a strong hold.
Now gambling is an addiction, a bad affliction, supported by TV but not a sin.
You have a teeny-weeny chance to win; but know when to stop, ere you begin!

Follow TAI’s layout and you’ll see how TAI’s three unite into one creation.
Emperor-Justice, Aries-Libra, East-West and the rest form a neat foundation.
The Emperor: Arising, East, Shock, Thunder, Eldest Son is in House One.
The oldest son shockingly takes the power and throne, as was so often done.
VII Justice, (7th. House) (the Gentle, Penetrating, Wind, West, ‘Eldest Daughter’)
Submits and guides via gentle intelligence, as ancient traditions taught her.
How to define the essence of the Divine? How do cards fall, so they relate at all?
God’s magical, life-giving source lives in us all miraculously, from we are small.

Today I received this from Erik. It's not within the book that he will publish, but shows a view from the area in which he and his wife lives:

Feel-Good-Cricklewood’s Sanity is its Family of Humanity.
I love my gorgeous green neighborhood “Feel-Good-Cricklewood”.
This is understood. In a sad mood it feels good with foreign food
And fascinating faces from far-away places, no memory replaces.
A blend of sunny spaces and sassy races that delightfully amazes.
If along the flow I should wave “Hello” to people I don’t know,
I do this quietly, unashamedly and unobtrusively, wherever I go,
Many passers-by will cautiously reply to the smile I sent,
Most passing folks know and sense, it is always well meant.

People brighten for a second or two, as I do. It’s fun too.
Many of our smiles linger for awhile, as smiles often do.
Gleams in bright eyes let me realize their slight replies.
My warm, light gestures are not denied. They like my tries.
Many mothers, kids in train, in the rain, driving them insane
wish they were free again. It remains a tame shame to complain.
This ever-changing flow makes me glow and grow wherever I go.
By God! I love this melting-pot. It’s the best we’ve got, I know.

At last change is in the air from those aware enough to care.
Too long we fought each other, brother killing brother. Beware!
Our survival is at stake. End this mistake, replace what we take
Through inventions we make. Give war a break for all our sake.
Work for these unifying goals: Save our Earth. Save our souls.
All-together we can stabilize the weather. Add this to the polls.
“Hi neighbor, my Muslim friend, when will all this madness end”?
“Salaam Aleichem Viking friend upon our friendship we can depend”.

If I look into the pupils of your eyes, what do I see? I see twice mini-me
The glad-the sad, the good-the bad, the wise-the mad, how can that be?
I realize I see myself via someone else’s eyes. What a price surprise!
All are in us. We are in all. We are infinite light, infinitely small. How wise.
Grant great gifts gradual growth. For God’s grace to guide you, give pity.
That’s how infinity and eternity fit in with modernity in a modern, witty city.
You find peace of mind by being kind leaving no damaged life or heart behind.
Or, it seems, you may hear screams in your night’s dreams. Our deeds bind.

Cap the caper concerning wrapping-paper. The skin, we’re in, is paper-thin.
Racist passion is out of fashion. Appreciate and celebrate who we are within.
We are all the same. Regardless of from where we came, we are not to blame.
Love all humanity. It’s the only way to sanity. Anything less is an insane shame.
Won’t it just be jus’t and joyfully freeing, when all we are seeing is a human being?
A point about which we are agreeing! Many came because they were fleeing
from dangerous strife to create a life for them, their children and their wives.
Welcome one and all. Answer if they call. We could have the ball of our lives.

I Judge not by faith or colour of skin,
As a soul similar to mine lives within.

The title of the book which will be published in:
"TAI is now sent to Authorhouse in Indiana. TAI will be published in Boulder Colorado, America's most New-age-orientated state, Chicago, where Diane is from, London, where we live, Los Angeles, where Hollywood is and New York. Many artists including New-age orientated actors live there too. "
is:
"Lovely to hear from you. The full name of my book is: "TAI Divination Uniting Tarot, Astrology and the I Ching in One New-age Exploration".
TAI has 364 pages. 3 for the three systems becoming one and 64 for the amount of hexagrams in the I Ching. As soon as I have the books and E-stub books, which you can load onto your puter, I'll send you a copy. In that way you will have a lot to read.
"
Erik Thorell

Forty years ago when Erik was in Copenhagen, I told him that: "Erik, You can't use astrology in this way. You can't manipulate the heavenly bodies with cards, as they in their movements up there dictate the matters on our lives... " something like that. Well, reconsidering we shouldn't be able to manipulate the Thunder, Mountain etc. with the stalks or coins or whatever - but that's what we do when consulting the I.
Anyway, I've been looking the book loosely through and found that there's a lot of material, useful for the reader, the practised in divination.
Also, he explains why the four hexagrams namely hex. 1,2,63 and 64 are separated from the rest.
It's obvious that Erik's force lies within the Tarot in reading and understanding.

The book surely got a clear New Age aura. A brillant shining one !
