What discriminates ‘Multi-Perspective Palm Reading’ from all other approaches in the field of hand reading?
Multi-Perspective Palm Reading is a new type of hand reading that is rising from scientific research reports that relate to the hand as a ‘diagnostic tool’. The unique characteristic of this advanced type of palm reading is that it only includes hand markers which have been confirmed to have significant value according scientific studies. So this NEXT NATURE variant of ‘palmistry’ is not connected anyhow with astrology nor any other philosophic system.
In Multi-Perspective Palm Reading is the hand studied from 7 different perspectives in order to make an assessment for various specified themes – which can result in either a confirming- or prognostic ‘hand-diagnosis’.
The philosophy behind Multi-Perspective Palm Reading:
The philosophy behind this new advanced type of hand reading can be described as follows:
“In Multi-Perspective Palm Reading, a reliable hand-diagnosis is only possible when a pair of hands displays ‘diagnostic clues’ in MULTIPLE perspectives of the hand. According Multi-Perspective Palm Reading a person typically requires to have ‘diagnostic clues’ in at least 3 perspectives of his/her hands, before one can speak of a solid, specified hand-diagnosis.
The application of this philosophy in the practice for making a hand assessment can be understood by studying the role of the simian line in hand diagnostics. In the 20th century the simian line (the most well known of all palm line variations: a.k.a. the single palmar transverse crease or simian crease) became known as a diagnostic marker for Down syndrome. However, during the past decades this uncommon hand marker was recognized as a ‘minor physical anomaly’ that has diagnostic value for other syndromes, diseases & developmental problems. But in order to specify it’s significance as a major hand line for the individual that has this characteristic in one or both hands, a study of the other perspectives of the hand is required!
The 7 perspectives used in Multi-Perspective Palm Reading:
In the following seven perspectives are required to be studied in order to make a thorough hand assessment:
1 – Palm Reading & the HAND SHAPE, including e.g.: hand index, palm shape, hand length, hand breath.
2 – Palm Reading & the FINGERNAILS, including e.g.: color, morphology, structure, growth.
3 – Palm Reading & FINGER MORPHOLOGY, including e.g.: finger length, 2D:4D ratio, variations in shape & width.
4 – Palm Reading & the MAJOR LINES, including e.g.: primary creases, secundary creases, tertairy creases & accessory lines.
5 – Palm Reading & the DERMATOGLYPHICS, including e.g.: fingerprints, palmar dermatoglyphics.
6 – Palm Reading & SKIN QUALITY, including e.g.: colour, structure, flexure / tone.
7 – Palm Reading & HAND MOTORICS, including e.g.: flexibility, motoric hand index.

In 1943 Cummins & Midlo presented a work which became known as the Bible of fingerprints, titled: “Finger Prints, Palms and Soles”. The book is e.g. featured with a model named: ‘a family tree of finger print types’: see the picture above.
This ‘family tree’ presents an interesting perspective on how various types of fingerprints are related. Starting with the ‘concentric whorl’ (which sort of raises associations with various phenomena – such as: a solar system in the cosmos, or force fields in the atmosphere, hair streams on the human body, etc.), progressing via the ‘loop’, and ending with the ‘simple arch’ (which raises associations with more stable, inert phenomena).
At Amazon you can order a copy of ‘Finger prints, Palms and Soles’, or another fingerprint book (such as: ‘The Science of Fingerprints’ – a FBI production). For more details about the book, see: Google books & Ed Campbell’s article ‘Fingerprints & Palmar Dermatoglyphics‘.

lefty facts… Left-Handers Day was first celebrated on August 13th, 1976 by Lefthanders International). The purpose of the day is to both celebrate left-handedness and raise awareness of the unnecessary biases against left-handers. The holiday is still proudly observed by lefties every year on August 13th. Enthusiastic supporters may organize lefty vs. righty sports matches and encourage right-handers to try using left-handed products to experience the same awkwardness they are too often forced to endure.

What causes left handedness?
The factors that contribute to handedness, are not completely understood. Both genes & environmental factors are involved, but the brains play a significant role as well. The left brain, which controls the right hand, is dominant in most people and is the center of logical thinking. But in left handers is the right brain more dominant. And because the right brain is more associated with art, creativity, phantasy & emotional expression – the might explain why research has indicates that left handedness is about twice as often seen in artists than in the general population.
Where does left handedness excel?
Typical fields where left handers relatively often excell are:
7 Out of the last 14 US presidents were left handed, and Barack Obama’s final ‘rival’ – senator John Mc Cain – is left handed; in 1992 all three presidential candidates (George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton & Ross Perot) were left handed!
Left-handers excel particularly in tennis, baseball, swimming and fencing.
Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo & Isaac Newton were left handed, and 1 in 4 Apollo astronauts were left handed.
A few other exceptional historical ’lefties’ from various fields are:
Julius Caesar, Fidel Castro, Charlie Chaplin, Robert DeNiro, M.C. Escher, Mahatma Gandhi, Bill Gates, Alexander the Great, John McEnroe, Niccolò Paganini, Rembrandt van Rijn, Romario de Souza Faria, Mark Twain.

The benefits of washing hand go far beyond hand hygiene!
In the journal Science, researchers Spike W. S. Lee and Norbert Schwarz write that hand washing seems to lower the amount of second-guessing and rationalization that occur after making a decision:
“After choosing between two alternatives, people perceive the chosen alternative as more attractive and the rejected alternative as less attractive. This postdecisional dissonance effect was eliminated by cleaning one’s hands. Going beyond prior purification effects in the moral domain, physical cleansing seems to more generally remove past concerns, resulting in a metaphorical “clean slate” effect.”
Obviously, soaping up your hands may do more than just get rid of germs. It may scrub away the inner turmoil you feel right after being forced to make a choice between two appealing options.
So it turns out that Shakespeare was really onto something when he imagined Lady Macbeth trying to clean her conscience by rubbing invisible bloodstains from her hands. A few years ago, scientists asked people to describe a past unethical act. If people were then given a chance to clean their hands, they later expressed less guilt and shame than people who hadn’t cleansed.

The word ‘dermatoglyphics‘ was first coined by Harold Cummins in 1926, and refers to the study of the characteristics in the skin ridges of the hands and the feet. What are the most common dermatoglyphic characteristics?
In most populations around the world is the ‘ulnar loop’ the most observed fingerprint pattern (see: the fingerprint of the pinky finger in the picture above). Loops are most frequently found on the little finger (and middle finger); loops are least frequently found on the pointer finger.
The variations in the dermatoglyphics of the handpalm are much more complex than the variations in the fingerprints. An important element concerns the presence of the ‘palmar triradii’ (see: a, b, c, d, and t in the picture above): normally each finger is featured with a palmar triradius – triradius t belongs to the thumb (the thumb mouse – a.k.a. as the ‘thenar’, or in palmistry: ‘mount of Venus’ could be recognized as the third phalange of the thumb).
T = L + D – 1

Picture: example of a normal pattern of dermatoglypics [NOTICE: If the 'c-line' is ending between the ring- and middle finger it always creates a palmar 'loop', which implicates that the author of the picture has missed 6th palmar triradius between/below the c and d triradius]

In 1892, Sir Francis Galton published his highly influential book, ‘Finger Prints’ in which he described his classification system based on the number of triradii. On of the 3 most well-known fingerprint types is the ‘whorl’ (next to the ‘loop’ and ‘arch’), which is often found on the fingertips – but rarely found on the hypothenar (in palistry: ‘mount of Moon’)!
What was already known about the ‘hypothenar whorl’?
Quote from the article:
“While the classic palmistry literature describes that the ‘hypothenar whorl’ (a.k.a. ‘whorl on mount of Moon’) can be recognized as a sign for finding a ‘highly imaginative person’, various scientific studies have indicated that dermatoglyphic whorls on the mount of moon are linked with Down’s syndrome + a few other medical problems.”
NEW RESEARCH FINDING ON AUTISM!
Another quote from the article:
“A study on the hands of 30 people with autism (25 men, 5 women) revealed a surprizing high percentage of a specific (very rare) variant of the ‘hypothenar whorl’ – the ‘hypothenar composite whorl’.”
Some examples of the ‘hypothenar composite whorl’ are presented below.
In the perspective of the fact that in the science of fingerprints the ‘composite whorl’ is related to the ‘double loop’, it is interesting to notice here that the new finding relates to an earlier reported finding which pointed out that the hands of people with autism are often featured with a ‘double loop’ in the fingerprint of the pinky finger and the presence of 2 palmar loops below that 5th finger.
In cases you’re interested to learn more about the basics of fingerprint classification – the illustration below describes the 8 most common types of fingerprints (including: 2 ‘arch’ variants, 2 ‘loop’ variants, and 4 ‘whorl’ variants).
NOTICE: The ‘composite whorl’ whorl does not belong to the 8 basic fingerprint types (the name ‘double loop whorl’ in the picture below is traditionally described as a ‘double loop’).
