David Bryant Perkins arrived on December 17, 1953 at 90º 20’ West Longitude, 32º 45’ North Latitude around the time when most local banks and government offices were about to close.
Growing up on B-52 bases between Texas and California, David became a state champion and 3-time All American in swimming during high school, and became interested in science, history, human behavior, art, and the “unknown”.
Graduating from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1977 with a degree in Psychology, and teaching credentials - David applied the art of teaching to further his education in other areas of life. His interest in metaphysics and the paranormal began as a child often gazing at the stars, then learning how to read tarot cards while in high school.
Interest in astrology began in 1975 while working on a behavioral lab project in university - the results of which showed this ancient art of describing and predicting behavior outperforming other standard methods of psychology. David has since been on four different continents studying astrology’s history, philosophy, methods, and uses within many cultures. In 1985, he completed the first ever instructional and certification course ever given for (map on right) Astro*Carto*Graphy in San Francisco by it’s developer, the late Jim Lewis.
Since 1983, David’s astrological / metaphysical work has been published throughout Europe, from technical articles in journals to magazine pieces and entertainment weekly forecasts. For 10 years he was the featured astrologer in Germany’s largest weekly woman’s magazine Bild der Frau. While playing chess in a Hamburg city park, David ran across a veteran astrologer who worked in the SS Department of the Occult - The Black Sun - leading to the works of Karl Ernst Krafft and other personalities who developed the occult for the Nazi war machine; thus becoming the catalyst for the historical novel and screen play Hitler's Astrologer.
In the 1990's David created a weekly question & answer metaphysical advice column appearing in the daily Kurier Szczecinski (Szczecin, Poland). A collection of the best articles from this column were published into a book: Moja Gwieznda Therapia (“My Star Therapy” - ISBN 83 - 909578 - 5 - X) in 1998 distributed throughout Poland.
On the artistic side, David picked up a Moog synthesizer in 1979 after hearing Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, and Gary Numan, which he describes as the ‘music of his calling’.
In 1983 David went to Hamburg, Germany, played in the band Turbary, and later learned sound engineering after the band’s first visit to the studio. He later began recording other bands who liked his scientific approach in designing effects & adding layers to their sound, leading to designing sounds for theater. When asked by a record executive to forecast the future of music in 1986, David found a repeating 30 year cycle existing with popular music associated with the 29.7 year orbit of Saturn. A doctorate paper illustrating this qualitative study can be seen below.
In 1990, David was invited by the Impossible Industrial Action Theater to design sounds and create the soundtrack for their theatrical collaboration with Towson State University: “The Pleasure Raiders”.
While in Baltimore, Perkins teamed up with fractal artist Marcos Ferrer to develop David’s musical concept FUTURE CIRCUS into a multi-media performance art group, which traveled in the US, Japan, Germany, & Poland working with other artists as well as introducing the concept of audience participation into the act.
In 1993, David went to Poland and worked with Szczecin’s Teatr Wspolczesny (The Modern Theater of Szczecin) creating the music, video, and animation effects for the acclaimed “Moda Smierc” (1996) - which was invited to the Bonn Biennale, Germany - the bi-yearly showcase for the best modern theater in Europe. David also negotiated the rights for Teatr Wspolczesny to perform Woody Allen’s A Mid-Summer Night’s Sex Comedy, which premiered in Szczecin on September 12, 1998.
Other sound and video works for Teatr Wspolczesny include:
“Kochan I Nas troje” (1998)
“Balllladyna” (1998) *winner of the All Polish Classics Competition
Pablo Picasso’s “Four Little Girls” (1998)
While in Poland, David, with the help of a grant from the Soros Foundation, created Student Teatr Szczecin, a theater educational institution that brought German and Polish students of the Euroregion Pomerania together to learn the various aspects of using computer technology in music and video to develop theater.
With the Russians leaving Poland in the early 1990's coinciding with the Polish Ministry of Education deciding that Russian would no longer be their (forced) second language, David was elected Vice-President of the Szczecin English Speaking Association which brought together students, teachers, and the business community to assist all parties in mastering English for their specific goals.
David returned to the United States in 2000 and currently lives in Las Vegas, teaching high school History, English, & Government as a handling a case load of Special Education students.
Besides being the school's chess coach, David also creates opportunities for students to learn outside of the standard curriculum by being adviser to the Aquaponic & Music Technology clubs.Many of the missing pieces and facts uncovered to complete HITLER'S ASTROLOGER, were due in thanks to the Library of Congress, and a list of many others. Released in October, 2013 by Tate Publishing the book is available on Amazon & other major distributors, as well as the 'Get The Book' link at the top of this page.
The screen play for HITLER'S ASTROLOGER is registered with the Writer's Guild of America, listed on the International Screenwriter's Association, and is currently being entered into various screen writing contests...wish me luck! For those into film, the screenplay Logline:

If you're a history buff, or even if you're not, I hope you'll enjoy the book, and maybe, just maybe we all might be able to enjoy this as a film as well....

Using History Repeating Itself to make Future Predictions
A Doctorate Paper
by David Perkins
The story, HITLER'S ASTROLOGER, is centered around a figure who was one of the biggest names in 20th century astrology - Karl Ernst Krafft - who you may not have heard of, even if you are 'into' astrology, and of course the story will reveal why.
Yet, besides the incredible influence Herr Krafft had on some of the Third Reich's leading figures, even less is known about his astrological work, despite his major contributions of in the areas of statistics, harmonics, and the characteristics of the then newly discovered Pluto.
To give readers and idea of how Karl Ernst Krafft created his many accurate predictions during the 1930's, the paper below describes the cycle illustrated above that was created using the principles designed by Karl Ernst Krafft for looking at historical cycles in order to predict future trends.
To the left you are welcome to read a doctorate paper describing the 30-year musical cycle illustrated above found occurring in American popular music during the 20th century.
The paper illustrates relationships found when looking at this historical cycle repeating itself, as well as taking some of these characteristics so that one can predict future possibilities by continuing looking into the future using this 30 year cycle.
The point of the paper was not just to get a grade, but to test
the theoretical approach that the main character in this story, Karl
Ernst Krafft, introduced into the field of predictive science, as well
as to understand how his predictions describing the Third Reich were so
If you have a question, comments, or counter claims concerning this theory or the paper, I welcome your comment.
