PART 8. TARO AS THE SYSTEM OF EVOLUTION. SEPHIROT
6.2.1. Structure of tarot cards .
Tarot cards (The sacred book of Thoth ) consist of 78 sheets (maps). Each sheet contains the text of the whole chapter of the book. Usually, in the deck, the authors put in one empty card in case of replacing the lost one. For applications for card use (guessing, modulating situations, or charging talismans), if the Mag knows every card thoroughly, if one of the cards is lost, he can symbolically mark it on an empty card, consecrate ( see the consecration of cards below) and use as a card itself. The profane , who do not know what Tarot cards are in general, often interpret the meaning of an "empty card" in their writings, thus provoking the laughter of the initiated. By analogy with the Runes, which represent a completely different system of working with energies, ignoramuses see a deeper meaning in an empty map. But the Runes are energy flows, and the empty rune denotes its (energy) absence, as, for example, when the light bulb is off. Tarot cards have pages of the text of the book. What, for example, is the deep meaning in a blank sheet? What can be subtracted there?
Further, the tarot deck consists of two parts (sections), called the Big and Small Arcana Tarot . The word Arkan means exactly the rope tool, representing a long rope with a long loop, similar to the way nomads catch horses, cattle and each other.
Arkan means in this case a tool for setting the mind to catch energy of a certain quality. Each map has a picture field and service fields. For Big Arcans on the service field fits the Roman numeral indicating the serial number of Arkan and his "slogan". The Small Arcans has a division into "pictures" and "figures". The "number" in the service field is represented by an Arabic numeral number, the symbols of the Elements are included in the "picture" of the card. The "pictures" of Small Arcana in the service field indicate their dignity: Volts, Knights, Ladies, Kings, Aces. All cards, like the pages of the book, have clearly marked top and bottom. Some ignoramuses took it as a rule to comment on the meaning of "inverted" maps in their writings, demonstrating to everyone the complete lack of knowledge in the matter. By analogy with the Runes, which are vectors of energy and have, therefore, direction, these fools overturn the texts of the Book of Thoth . However, if the inverted rune has just the opposite direction of the energy vector, then what exactly is an inverted book in the hands of a layman trying to read it? Means, mainly, ignorance of letters and inability to read. For the Magician, the presence in the Tarot book of comments on an empty or inverted map immediately means that this work was written by a profane , and there is no need to waste time studying it.
Over time, players in gambling (which the meaning of Tarot was absolutely unavailable) simplified the deck for their needs. This would be a complete surprise for the ancient Egyptians, accustomed to take care of the texts. Thus there was a playing deck of cards, in which are completely absent Big Arcans, and Small Arcans include only number and color (element). For Big Arcans in preferance deck (more complete) got 22 Arcana card ( "Fool"), transformed into the Joker and, apparently indicating the player. Of the Knights, however, the Knights disappeared.
Matching Tights and Elements:
Swords (Fire) - Peaks of Dinaria (Earth) - Tambourines of the Cup (Water) - Worms of Wands (Air) - Clubs.
There are decks made by the profane , in which instead of Small Arcana "playing" cards are placed. These fools, apparently, somewhere heard that in Tarot there are 22 Great Arcana, and somehow they draw (not knowing what they are doing), but instead of Small Arcana simply put playing cards, not thinking about the discarded text (not even guessing that he should be). Such a deck is similar to a book containing only chapter titles and page numbers. To such grief-masterpieces can be attributed and the "Marseilles deck," made by the Magi specifically for screening profane. In former times, in this way, the self-styled sailors were sifted out of the navy . They were asked: - What did you go to sea? - Yes, on cruisers, on battleships .... - And on a latrine? (name of the ship's toilet). - And how, on it more often ...
Thus, there are several ways to immediately weed out the profane , struggling in the field of tarot cards .
The Tarot deck consists of 22 cards of the Big Arkan and 56 cards of the Small, broken into 4 suits (Elements) with 14 cards each. Each suit forms a structure called the "Staircase of St. James" (the saint had a vision that supposedly showed the work of this structure).
188.8.131.52. A curious case of the interpretation of symbols.
The fact is that the above system of keys is not a special case, applied only to the Tarot , but it is a kind of universal system for the entire occult heritage, including alchemy, but with some additions related to the specifics of the work of alchemists. This also includes the interpretation of ancient Tibetan iconography. So, for example, the Tibetan icon of Kalachakra depicts a male demonic (low-frequency supernatural) creature that is in sexual contact with a female demonic being. From which the profaneconcluded that in the Tibetan religion there are sexual practices (to the surprise of the Tibetans themselves, nothing about this not knowing). Really there it is said about the mind of the lower plan (male supernatural being), accessible to contemplation of the Magician by means of intuition (female being). However, the interest generated by the profanation of this icon gave birth immediately to the market of proposals. There was a whole galaxy of teachers who began to teach Tantra (in fact, the name of the Tibetan version of Buddhism, which has nothing in common with sexual practices) to all comers. These practices were enthusiastically received by a sex-hungry public who was able to satisfy their sexual needs under the guise of spiritual development.
In Soviet times, Russia published a lot of critical materials about Magic, Alchemy and Astrology. In these articles the worldview of the Ancients was presented as primitive and very naive, which fit very well into the idea of the progressive development of civilization (descendants know more than ancestors). However, this process is not linear, but spiral (which was recently confirmed by scientists, having come to the conclusion that 25 thousand years ago there was a nuclear war on the Earth).
This means that the ancients were not so naive, and their worldview can far outrun existing ideas about the world. Mocked as a pseudoscience, Alchemy produced an absolutely real product: chemically pure gold in very close to industrial volumes (and it exists to our time).
Astrology allows you to predict many life events with a large correlation. The ancient methods of controlling reality (Magic) describe absolutely terrific possibilities.
Thus, the cosmogonic and physical representations of the Ancients can be very interesting to us.
Under the Elements, the Ancients understood the principles of the organization of matter in our Universe. Their breakdown of the structure of matter into five principles was based not on empirical guesses. In total there were five Elements: Earth, Water, Air, Fire, Ether.
- The Earth carried in itself the notion of a solid state of matter, information, and energy density per unit volume.
- Water includes concepts of the liquid state of matter, elapsed time and inertial mass.
- Air includes ideas about the gaseous state of matter, the future of time and Chaos. The probabilities of events and parallel worlds are associated with it.
- Fire corresponds to the plasma state of matter, kinetic energy and present time.
- Ether is a system of interaction of the four Elements in equal proportions, an idea of living matter and vital energy.
The concept of Elements is connected with the principle of organization of matter in the universe and with the existence of other Universes constructed from other Elements. It is said about the Universes bordering on ours, such, in whose structure there is
Elements like those that exist in our universe. Between our Universes there is a Boundary and the transfer of objects is possible. These other universes are named after the common (boundary element). For example, the Worlds of Fire or the Worlds of the Earth. Beings that pass into our world from other universes are called Elementals .These include the Elements of Fire, referred to as the Magi of the Salamander (medieval terminology), Elementals of the Earth - "Dwarves" or "Kobolds", Elementals of Water - "Undines", Elementals of Air - "Sylphs".
There are many names for the Elementals of Ether: " Ollie ", "Dryad", " Loa ", " Elementary ", etc. The Mages themselves describe the Elementals (Elementals) as such fluctuations of the Elements, which can be regarded as the presence of some living being. For example, in the flame of a candle, in the absence of a draft, uneven burning occurs, and the tongues of flame form bizarre patterns resembling a lizard (fiery salamander). The Elementals theme is not covered in detail in the Egyptians' heritage ( Tarot cards ) or the Hebrew heritage (the Torah book is the deciphering given by Moses on the Tablet of Stone). This theme was worked out by the ancient and medieval magicians, including Paracelsus. The most complete description of this topic is still the repeatedly reprinted book of the abbe Villefort de Montfocon "Count Gabalis ", written very dark and metaphorically. For a person who is not familiar with the occult method of concealing information, it will be very incomprehensible and useless. There are also known works of Agripa and Paracelsus, affecting the nature of spontaneous spirits.
6.2.2. Consecration of tarot cards .
As already mentioned above, the tarot cards represent the surviving version of the ancient Egyptian Holy Book of Thoth . In turn, this book is a textual record of a selection of information plates Atlanta. In the original source there were no written texts, there were video materials that included all the parameters of reality (sounds, smells and tactile sensations) that people perceived not from the screen, but as occurring directly with it. Based on these experiences, the Egyptian priests also compiled their tables with texts. The Atlanta Library, even if you take those few plates that the Egyptians got along with Helmet Ra, was amazing in size. Priests immediately eliminated "all unnecessary", which includes incomprehensible alien technology, art and literature, and stopped their attention on several magical materials. Translated into the texts of these collections, they isolated the "most necessary" from them and thus created a textbook of Magic. The main thing in this textbook, from their point of view, was the technology of changing reality with the aid of the "command system" (Big Arcana). In addition, they found the keys to working with matter and energy, as well as ways to penetrate other Worlds (Small Arcana). Each of the 78 tables described the method of entering a certain "command" state of consciousness, in which the human consciousness turns into a "reality converter ". This system of knowledge, which is the product of achieving the science of an entire civilization, in principle operates with a different model of the world than modern physics.
Briefly describe this model is possible by analogy with the ideas of the movie "The Matrix": we are all only programs in a giant computer. Atlanta talked about the information model of the world in which the Earth is a computer with a 22-bit processor. In other words, each object in this system (in our objective reality) is denoted by a name that includes 22 signs. Having found such an object for the object and entering the state of reality control (get to the program itself), we can rewrite the name of the object, changing its properties.
In addition to the digit capacity of the "processor" Atlanta found that the system has 10 levels (information is recorded on 10 disks). Each such level corresponds to one of the 10 Sefirot (see Sephiroth or Jewish heritage. In the 10 Tablets handed down by Moses from Mount Sinai , Sephira was apparently described ). The program itself (reality) is written using a language containing 22 symbols, each of which corresponds to one of the program commands (the law of nature acting in this world). Thus, behind each map of the Great Arcana there is a really existing information packet of information. The map itself describes the method of setting up consciousness for this external information block. When the mind is configured in accordance with the map, the Mage can hold this energy and fix this stream to the map itself. This procedure is called "consecration" of cards. Sanctifying each of the 22 cards of the Big Arkan, the Magician passes to 56 cards of Small Arcana.
Small Arcana indicate the points of the universe in which certain forces act. Tarot cards include 14 dots for each of Elements (the direction of displacement of one of the 4 universe boundaries (a total of 6: Fire, Earth, Water, Air, Ether, forming two Elements:. Life and Death) are shifted in accordance with the indicating the map at a given point in the universe, the Mage fixes its properties on the map, that is, it charges the map with the energy of that place, using the point of the Universe described by the map as the "Place of Force" ( see Places of Power).
After fixing all 14 points on the maps for each of the Elements, the cards are laid out as the main Mandola of Tarot (triangle in the square) in order for the energies of the cards to align with each other. After the consecration of cards, they can be used as talismans possessing the quality indicated for this card ( see Talismans of Big Arcans).
6.2. Great Arcana Tarot and the evolution of human consciousness.
All the tree Sephiroth tree can be considered as a device for the development of human consciousness (like a gym). For many lives, working with different Arkans, a person moves from one level of development to the next level. As a rule, for levels 1-3 castes this transition is unconscious. Next, a person begins to engage in evolution, as a matter of fact, and approaches this transition consciously (Magic). However, development does not necessarily take place with one person, but sometimes with the entire society. One can imagine how whole civilizations leave the lower world of Malkut in the next world of Yesod or other worlds . (With m. Section Sephira Tarot ).
There are several described examples of strange disappearances of entire populations of people. There is a description of the resettlement of a whole village of some sectarians in a higher-frequency world (presumably, Yesod ), and the technology was described in the diary found there. There is also a modern description of one American tourist, who lived for several months among Australian aborigines, quite seriously discussing plans to move to a higher-frequency world (not death) of the whole tribe. We can assume the existence in the past of civilizations, which managed to completely move into higher-frequency worlds.
6.5.1. Arcana as a method of customization.
The main textbook of Magic, which is the heritage of the civilization of the Assyrian ( Sephirotic Magic), is still the Holy Book of Thoth , which has survived to the present day in the form of a Tarot card , and the Holy Scripture of the Jews in the form of the book "Torah." This book is based on the stone tablets brought by Moses from Mount Sinai (the reserve version of the book of Thoth , hidden there by the Egyptians before the Hyksos invasion and the death of the Ancient Kingdom of the Egyptians).However, the texts of the Old Testament are very vague. The Ten Commandments in number are joined with the idea of the ten Sefir . In some pieces of text, the description of the Arcana Tarot is seen .
Thus, the story of Adam, the apple and the Serpent is a verbal description of the 6 Arcana (but the Arcana Tarot is 2-5 thousand years old than the Torah). A vague description of the creation of the world roughly describes 1 Arkan. However, the esotericists who examined the Torah said that its text was encrypted in a complicated way. The same conclusion was given by modern researchers who studied the Torah with the help of computers. As a result, CURRENT soup first time the best and most understandable textbook Magic (scientific paradigm ancient civilization) is a tarot card deck. But it is also encrypted. However, the method of deciphering it is simple, as is the method of reading the sacred letter of the Egyptians. Here we are dealing with intuitive symbols (as in modern technology). To decipher the Tarot, you need to know a few basic concepts that were passed orally (oral tradition) from teacher to student. These key concepts were called "Keys" and were recorded in the Bible, according to legend, King Solomon (King Solomon's Keys). Crossed keys in the coat of arms of the Vatican reflect the claim for knowledge (possession) of this oral tradition. More important yshim key is illustrated in figure Taro winged sphinx (Sphinx enigma). The decipherment of this Key is given in several Magical Tracts. However, the symbol itself is painted inside 10A.
In general, all instructions related to Tarot cards should be searched within the maps themselves. In principle, analyzing the figures of Tarot , you can decipher Glyphs(symbols) yourself, especially if you first study the works of esotericists, tk. most of them relied on the Tarot (see Mobius, Uspensky, etc.).
6.5.2. Features of Ritual Magic.
Working with the energies of the Great Arcana Tarot is usually called Ritual Magic. The fact is that each Tarot card contains a certain number of glyphs (signs), indicating the need to perform actions to adjust consciousness to the flow of energy of this Arcana. Since for centuries, with each of the Arcanes, many people worked, then each card got the energy of the ritual (the energy of the Egregor Ritual of this Arkan). In other words, getting into the ritual (when starting the ritual) tuning to this Arkan, you seem to get on some rails, which you yourself send further. In themselves, Tarot cards are nothing more , than a paper with pictures. However, when they engage the energy of the ritual (the consecration of the Tarot deck ), and for each of the 22 Arcana, the cards become a source of the Force, which is a volt of the Sephiroth Tree (System Volt).
6.5.3. Management of planetary processes, like work.
Working with large Arcana is similar to the work of a starship crew. All together serve a more complex mechanism. Those who work with Arcanes 22-18, are bilge sailors. They serve machinery, body, engines. Working with energies 17-10 are engineers. They work with ship control systems. Those who work with the Arcana 9-5 are officers. They control all services and plot the course of the ship. Those who work with the Arcanes 4-1 are the headquarters headed by the captain (1A), the navigator (2A), the chief power engineer (3A) and the Senior officer (4A). Thanks to the efforts of the entire crew, this ship plows the expanses of the Universe.
6.3. Small Arcana Tarot and Five Elements.
As mentioned above, the Tarot deck consists of 78 cards. Of these, 22 are the Great Arcana ( see above). The descriptions of Sephiroth , apparently, were hidden separately (stone tables of the Covenant containing the 10 commandments) and got in some kind of encrypted form in the Torah, and from it into the Bible. The 56 remaining cards are the Small Arcana and in modern esotericism this is the most mysterious area. Virtually none of the modern books on Tarology has advanced further descriptions (always controversial) of the sci-fi aspects of Small Arcana. Meanwhile, this is one of the most exciting areas of the Assyrian Heritage , called "Practical Magic". These Small Arcana keep a knowledge of psychotechnology ancient. All cards of Small Arcana - 56 pcs. - divided into 4 groups (Elements), reflecting the features of the energy and world perception of man. In fact, such groups (Element, or Elements) are not 4 and 5. And the fifth Element Life (Element "Ether") contains at once two active principles, or directions - Life and Death. That is, theoretically in Tarot cards there should be two groups (suits) more. However, the compilers of the Book of Thoth withdrew the Ether beyond consideration. There is a separate Necronomicon (Book of Seth), describing the death of poems (14 cards (or chapters), by analogy with the rest of the verse), and the Book of Life, which has a completely different name (from the Crane Books to the Book of Dragons ( Draconomicon )). In addition, there are references to the Book of Flowers and the Book of Trees. We will assume that the writers of the Book of Thoth had good reasons to exclude Element Ether from consideration. Thus, we have 56 cards divided into 4 groups of 14 cards.
6.6.1. Evolution of consciousness and Hierarchy.
As described in the description of the Great Arcana, the Sephiroth Tree is a rigid hierarchical system in which the higher rule the lower. A complete analogue of the organism, in which there are control systems and controlled cells, tissues, organs. The growth of consciousness occurs due to its specialization. Also in the human society, the growth of mastery is inextricably linked with the narrowing of specialization. Specialization consciousness of the Magi (4.1-4.4) occurs within the Element, usually called the Elemental Clan. Elementary clans are complex social structures with a multiparameter hierarchy. One of the hierarchical parameters of the spontaneous clans is designated in Small Arcana and looks like a transition from 2-to-10-kam (4.1-4.3) and from volts to aces (4.3-4.4). If we consider the Small Arcana as the Stage of the evolution of consciousness (usually 14 maps of the Elements are called "St. Jacob's Ladder"), then one can say that at each step a person learns certain skills. If the Big Arcana dealt with the work of consciousness with energies of a certain type (a description of the Tree of Sephiroth himself - our analogy with the starship), the Small Arcana describe the profession of the crew of this spaceship, and the description begins not with sailors' professions (1-3), but with the level of engineers (3-4.1-4.4). In this case, the engineering professions (4.1-4.3) are described by digital maps (from 2 to 10), and the officer's professions - by "pictures", from Volts to Aces. As a result, there are two sections of Practical Magic: Development of Consciousness (Adept Magic (4.1-4.3) (2-10 Minor Arcana)) and Vyzyvatelnaya Magic ( invocation of the "higher powers" (from volts to Aces (4.3-4.44)).
6.6.2. The Power of Hierarchy.
Unlike the human society (1-3), where the "bosses" create verbal (manifested) conditions for subjugating other people (laws, material incentives, etc. ) , in the world of Magic (4.1-4.4) the power of the Hierarchy is non-verbal ( is not manifested in the form of incentives or coercions emanating from a specific person), but is hidden and expressed in the form of a change in the picture of the world (the Treaty). For example, the world of a squirrel sitting in a cage is arranged in such a way that it is forced to turn the wheel, although nothing is paid for it, and no one asks for it. Simply, knowing its nature (features), she was created such conditions. The hierarchy rules the Treaty and through it - by individuals. At the same time, the power of the Hierarchy is anonymous and is not based on orders, but on the emergence of situations that lower standing should work. Consciousness of highest create a world - in which the lowest live. In this regard, ordinary people can be defined as those from whose consciousness
The treaty (the picture of the world) does not depend, and the Magicians - as those on whose consciousness it depends.
