As a school of syncretic wisdom, Ambiarchy Academy draws from many diverse and even opposing sources, which are not always easily reconciled.
These listed resources are external interests to Ambiarchy Academy. While they do represent matters worthy of consideration, Ambiarchy Academy in no way fully endorses any of these resources in their entirety. These are not official documents, nor do they represent any dogma, for Ambiarchy Academy. None the less, these documents should provide a good deal of enlightenment for their readership. This database is currently being built.


These resources have to do with empirical and historical studies, relating to the documented and ongoing human experiences of reality. The categories of Cosmology, Biology, Anthropology, and Sociology are used in a very wide sense, and actually contain more than their labels, such that fields like history and economics, as well as sociology proper, are put into Sociology, and so on.
