This is an apparently scarce text that originally came with what it refers to as a "Hum-Watch," which appears to have been a kind of concept watch for the well-established watch brand Capella; as we were unable to find any reference online to the Hum-Watch explored here, we suspect it may have been a prototype or proposal that never made it to production. Throughout the text are references to Carl Jung's theories about Archetypal images, along with explanations of how to understand these images (using your watch) in order to obtain happiness and fulfillment. There are many mentions of the symbols of the "circled four-leaf clover" and the "wheel." A color photograph of two Hum-Watches on page 87 suggests these were the two Hum-Watch design choices offered for purchase. Chapter titles of this book include "Luck and its symbols," "Happiness and its secret," "Reflections on the term <>," The essential structural elements of the circled four-leaf and man," "The circled four-leaf as a scheme of concentration or as a means for discovering our own bodies," "The exercise," "Benefits of the exercise," "In search of the subconsious archetype of completeness," "Happiness and time," and "The clock and happiness." Pages 68-87 contain black-and-white and color illustrations of various symbols (with explanatory texts) and places deemed spiritual "monuments of happiness."
