Dennis, although sceptical on progressions, a real interesting correlation you've made with your "Physical basis for progression theory"! Always thought that geomagnetism correlated with biochemistry could give the explanation (in the future) to the astrological fact. But, to go further into the correlation, how does it work, physically? Can we imagine the mechanism?

The icon/index/symbol is the most known (the only known!?) of the distinctions made by Peirce to analyse the sign. (Incidently Peirce mention here the "Symbol" as a mere linguistic sign). Peirce has spent all his life to find various classes of signs. At the end of his life, he obtained more than 50,000 classes of signs, with only 66 "valid" classes. His distinction Firstness/Secondness/Thirdness is the "pierre angulaire" for understanding what he means.

I've discuted all this in my article & in the following one (see 'From Semiotics to Astral', http://cura.free.fr/04semas.html, not yet translated in English).

Peirce is the real genious, still relatively unappreciated, of the American philosophy. "All is a sign for me": it was his credo, & a real philosophical new perspective. To read Peirce is to discover a new land, a continent ...

By the way, I'm looking for his time of birth (Cambridge, Massachusetts, Sept. 10, 1839) & also to get his, now unobtainable?, Collected Papers (first edition: Charles Hartshorne & Paul Weiss ed., Cambridge (Mass.), Harvard University Press, 1931-1935 & 1957-1958, 8 vol.)
