“Oh, that your frowns would teach my smiles such skill !”
(Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream)
Watch her when she frowns!… We possess a method of guessing the female nature by reading her wrinkles!… No need of a urine sample to decide whether she is lying :
Albertus Magnus‘s clever virginity test…
The initiated have at their disposal the infallible art of metoposcopy: wrinkle-reading. Since I will open a cabinet of metoposcopy myself soon, reviving this long-forgotten art based on the true teachings of Cardan, here is its essence: forget palm reading – anyone’s character is revealed by understanding the wrinkles of his/her face. Jérôme Cardan, the physician, mathematician, astrologer and gambler, who invented the… well, the cardan, the universal mechanical joint!… and who in his “Liber de Ludo Aleae” (“Book on Games of Chance”), devised a calculus of probability, useful to pay for his gambling debts, Cardan also discovered how our true nature is revealed by the patterns of the wrinkles on the face.
In his book “Metoposcopia” (Paris, 1658), he thus explains that deep, curved, parallel furrows on the forehead indicate nobility of character (that’s me over there).
But the strongest feature of his method is the analysis of female nature as revealed by her wrinkles. More about this soon… or ask for an appointment.
