Edmond Furter wrote the book Stoneprint, the human code in art, buildings and cities (2016, Four Equators Media). The book expands demonstrations of the subconscious expression of archetypal structure, to houses, temples, monuments, pyramid fields, geoglyphs, sacred sites, villages, cities and regions. The same structure also appears in mythology (such as Babylonian building rituals); and in reflexology points in our hands, irises, teeth, and ears, thus in nature. Stoneprint demonstrates that the periodic table is a kind of natural 'culture', and that culture is a natural 'species' of behaviour. The structure in our works is as rigorous as grammar or DNA. Stoneprint follows on Mindprint, the subconscious art code (2014, Lulu.com), which drew on extensive research in iconography, archaeology, history, esoterica, and astronomy, spanning 26 years. Furter said of his subject; “At first I studied psychology about what we feel, then archaeology about what we make, astronomy about what we observe and record and deduct, then cognitive archaeology about what we think. Ironically, this book is not based on the premises or findings of any of these disciplines. "Stoneprint is about what we do not consciously feel, make, see, record, read or think. It is about the archetypal attributes, sequence and structure that we subconsciously and compulsively express. I am expanding structural anthropology applications to a holistic approach to the cultural record.” He works as a freelance researcher and editor in Johannesburg.
