At dinner during that seemingly timeless time-period, the question was posed to Dr. Jones: "How would you compare your work and that of Dane Rudhyar?" His response was not recorded in detail, but one rather specific and quite accurate quotation is this: "Rudhyar is a metaphysician. I am a clinician." It was readily apparent that the terms used in this reference were not intended to be taken as defined in either academic philosophy or clinical psychology. Somewhat so, but not quite so. What MEJ meant to indicate was that a great deal of attention in his own work in the field had been purposely bent toward developing practical yet esoteric applications of astrological/philosophical insights that are intended to have high use or advantage in very immediate situations of counseling. I gathered that, from his point-of-view, the work of Rudhyar was most significant because of Rudhyar's capacity for success through informing or even illuminating astrology and the philosophy of astrology with a panoramic and inspiring vision of universal unity as perhaps exemplified by the transformational energies that may open up to mind and spirit through rational and idealistic contemplation of Cycle and Wholeness per se.

      Rudhyar, in a work dedicated to Jones (The Pulse Of Life), made singular and affecting use of this vast Explanation for human life that avails itself to us through correct awareness of humanistic and transpersonal Cycle and Wholeness. Jones, in his public and private comments clearly affirmed his own view of the reflexive and intimate nature of the relationship or awareness that existed, and still exists, between of these two great thinkers and teachers of this late and onward-passing century.
