  1. Before you can start "Discerning the Transmundane", you must first begin the
    main quest "Elder Knowledge". "Elder Knowledge" immediately follows "The
    Throat of the World". After your conversation with Paarthurnax, you are tasked
    with finding an Elder Scroll. Head to Arngeir and ask about the Elder Scroll.
    He will direct you to the College of Winterhold.

    Once you're inside, head to the Hall of Elements, then take the door to The
    Arcanaeum. Talk with the orc Urag gro-Shub about the Elder Scroll. He will
    retrieve two books. You can read them both if you want, but all you have to do
    is open "Ruminations on the Elder Scrolls", then talk to Urag again and tell
    him the book makes no sense. He will tell you that it was written by Septimus
    Signus, who has taken up residence in a dwemer ruin in the ice fields up
    north. This marks the beginning of "Discerning the Transmundane" proper.

  1. Contrary to the post above me, you don't need to be progressed in the story to obtain "Discerning the Transmundane". All you need to do is head to Septimus Signus's Outpost, located due north of the College of Winterhold (close to the map boundary) and talk to him.

  2. Continuing from "Icedragon26"'s post, if you're looking forward to obtain the book "Oghma Infinium", you have to be at a certain level in order to continue on from the quest "Discerning the Transmundane". Otherwise, Septimus will just ask you to wait until he figures a way out to open that box. As for the required level, correct me if I'm wrong, it's Level 15.

  3. Contrary to my post, once you had hit level 15, a courier will come looking for you and give you a letter from Septimus. Septimus will ask you to get back to him and from there, you'll be continuing the quest. If you have any difficulty gathering the bloods, travel to "Lair's Retreat". They have all the bloods there except for High elves. Once you had gotten all the blood except for the high elf, exit the lair and fast travel to the Thalmor's Embassy. Pick the gate and go harvest your blood.
