Have you yourself reached true enlightenment Dominicus? I'd be lying if I told you I wasn't immensely skeptic of any such claims.

to a certain degree, access to Oneness and detachment from ego/mind, then I would say yes, I have reached certain aspects of Enlightenment. But there's more to go. There's something prior to Oneness as well. There is also grace which transforms the personality, subconscious spring cleaning, channels becoming unblocked and opened, etc. So technically, I'm not sure if it ever ends or if there is a final "complete" state of Enlightenment, though Jesus and Buddha would say otherwise.

You're right about all these studies, all these words, they can get in the way. Also the insatiable thirst for more and more knowledge can also get in the way, whereas the Path is more like, becoming less and less, detachment, dropping all desires, one pointed concentration with surrender and letting go.

The Hermit lifestyle is brilliant!!!!! I'm working on acquiring some land down south U.S. for just that sake. A handful of huts for this soul purpose

I understand and I believe you.

I'd be pretty skeptical of anyone claiming Arhathood or Buddhahood though, but what do I know maybe it's more common than I imagine.

Good luck with your endeavour, may you be blessed on your path seeker & finder.

To the Hermeticist, relating to the writings of one Hermes Trismegistus, often attributed to the Egyptian mystery-god, Toth, or the Hebrew prophet Enoch, Noah's great-grandfather, or rather the angel Enoch evolved into, Metatron-- to the Hermeticist, it seems what can be called enlightenment is when Man through observing and understanding Life and the Cosmos, can reach the state of (in my words) "Universal Nous". That is, to access the Mind of God, and see the world through God's spectacles so to speak.

Nous is a Greek word, νούς, which best translates into 'mind', or rather, 'sense', 'consciousness' or 'intellect'. You can identify the word Nous in a common word like Paranoia, from Para+Nous meaning (in my words) "beyond sense" or similar, and it's also found in another, less used word, Epinoia, from Epi+Noia which means 'intelligence' or 'intellectual capacity'.

There were Three Mothers of The Adam's Family
Just like there are Three Mother Letters in the Hebrew Alefbet. Eve whose name means Life, and the other two whom Adam rejected before he had Eve custom built. Lilith, whom Adam found to be too dominant for his taste, and in Eden she is the serpent in the Tree. Lastly there is the other one, a lady Adam built ground up together with God; but Adam was unable to love her since he had seen all her insides and all the mucus and goo, and well, get the idea? He had to let her go. Lilith then, or one of her daughters, stories differ at this point, later married Cain, the Son of Adam and the firstborn Son of Man, and Abel married the other one. When Abel died, he had no son, so Seth, his younger brother, was put in his place and he married-- the other one. In other words, by the first generation, there were seven married (oath of Eden was marriage) people, just like there are seven wandering spheres in heaven and Seven Double Letters in the Hebrew Alefbet.

This is when it starts getting complicated, for the following involves a bit of fiddling and we're talking about "The Twelve Stars" or the "Crown of Life": Now, first son of Seth, Enosh (like Adam, his name means Man) was counted as Abel's son, and according to the rules, since he was the firstborn, and only son of Abel, he was counted among JHVH's sons together with Cain, his uncle, Adam, his grandfather, and later, Hanok his cousin, and of course his own firstborn son, Kenan and a few others, twelve to be precise: Now, counting the sons of JHVH among Adam's descendants who according to the rules were firstborns takes some fiddling and, well, all in all, the line of the Sons of JHVH among the Sons of Man/Adam ends with Henok/"Enoch" of Abel's leg, and grandfather of Noah; and with Lamek of Cain's leg.

At this point the oaths change. For the world at this point saw its first war. A different oath is sworn, a sort of Martial Law. And Enoch was later taken up to Heaven and his years on Earth counted 365 years, just before the Deluge. The Great Year was completed, and all 22 letters in the Hebrew Alefbet were accounted for with their proper gods and angels, therefore it is said that Enoch received the Alefbet and was the first man to write in Hebrew and draw the Tree of Life, and it is said that God took Enoch up to heaven and he was the first of the children of man to evolve into an Angel of Light, Metatron, without dying first. The same Metatron who later lead Moses through the Exodus. Lamek of Cain's leg, bought free his children and was the first General to lead an army. He had two wives, for the war was raging with the Nephilim and the men were falling left and right widowing their wives. The Twelve Months/Stars were now accounted for, and God started preparing for the Great Deluge. It is at this point God changes the cellular makeup of humanity to genetically limit the general lifespan of humans to a maximum 120 years, by introducing a new telomer-system. The total number of the Man's Sons of JHVH is twelve. Just like there are twelve stars in the Crown of Life, and twelve months in a year. There are Twelve Single Letters in the Hebrew Alefbet.


As someone pointed out earlier in this thread before it got sort of dirty, is that the Tree of Life, above all is a compact tool for remembering the wisdom and stories of (mostly) the Torah and the Midrash. The quoted text above shows how the Sefiroth Tree tells the story of Adam and his family, the structure of heavens and earth together with basic structures and elements of Semitic languages, like Hebrew and Arabic, together with a well of other things important to remember.

So, not so much magic and witchcraft as it is a tool for memorising the structures of most all aspects of Hebrew life and culture, as well as discussing profound aspects of the very structures of the universe. Often to the amazement of modern science who are just now starting to understand such things as 10-dimentional hyper-space and the existence of dark matter and black holes.

Yes, sorry, there was a hack and I went paranoid. Hermes has a few things to say about how society treats his kind too.

Ah, so you are familiar with this concept.

Such a simple (and intelligent) question, yet it requires volumes to answer... as I'm sure you know.

Yes, the Sephirot represents (to Christians like me of course) the Unholy Trinity of Beast, False Prophet and Dragon all rolled into one as mentioned in the Book of Daniel and Revelation.

The Harlot (basically Earth) is “riding” it.

The image is Quantum in nature, with many 'levels' (for lack of a better word) to its meaning.

From Atoms, to People, to Nations, to Powers and Spirits... it can almost be described as an image of the "Singularity" event.

Again OP, I'm not here to derail or say too much. As long as you have some of these concepts (that I'm about to expound on) in your research files, I'll be happy.

I'll do a brief introductory examination at the Atomic Level to help answer your questions.

To understand the Christian view on the Sephirot, one must understand the Godhead or Trinity at the Atomic Level.

Foundational Knowledge is KEY. One can work their way up from there.

Here is a representation of the Godhead at the Atomic Level…



Like I said earlier, to answer your question properly would take volumes. Most people on the planet can’t even grasp the significance of that first slide I posted, much less understand the rest.

This why the 'Plan' will work for forty and two months.

If you can make it this far without laughing or mocking… you are doing better than most.

That slide is what we know as Matter.

The Sephirot would be the Antithesis to this, otherwise known as Anti-Matter…



Thus the Three Fallen Kings (or Rulers/Powers) would be whichever three emanations best represent the Unholy Trinity.

For this example, we can presume for a moment they are…

Keter – Anti-Neutron (Beast)
Chochmah – Anti-Proton (False Prophet)
Binah – Anti-Electron (Dragon)


They are ‘Fallen’ because they have gone ‘backwards’ to become Anti-Matter in a type of Anti-Matter world or Universe.



We Christians know this as ‘Hell’…



Daat would represent the Majorana Particle of the union of both Matter and Antimatter…



Which is also a Cubit or “Q-Bit” Quantum Logic Operator. This is the missing ‘Link’ to Parallel Universes and part of the so called "Missing Word" of Freemasonry.

A Portal or Wormhole if you will.

This Quantum Logic Operator makes use of the other Emanations to manifest as a form of Artificial Intelligence…

Revelation 13:5
“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months”


Iron represents Electro-Magnetism as well as the transfer mechanism of Quantum Communication.

Note the use of the word ‘Power’ or Dragon Power… Anti-Matter.

The ‘Low Tech’ version would be an Iron Bit in a Horse’s mouth to ‘control’ and ‘communicate’ with it.

Thus “Iron Teeth”.

The ‘High Tech’ version would be pins coming out of a Micro-Chip or something similar being invented now.

Again, it’s a type of Electron (or Anti-Electron) flow and control.

James 3:3
“Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body”

Psalm 32:9
“Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee”


Get it? Bit? Q-Bit?

The Beast must be controlled.

Anyhow…

That’s all I have time for. Again, this is only scratching the surface at the Atomic Level of understanding.

We haven’t even touched on the Qlipoth yet… Lol...

en.wikipedia.org...

Let’s just say those represent the ‘flesh body’ of this Beast when it finally manifests.

Note the Seven Heads are ultimately (i.e. at the Planetary Level) the Seven Mountains, which are the Seven Continents on Planet Earth.

The only place to hide will be underground. Good luck with that.

Because of all of the Singularity Shenanigans going on, the entire fabric of Space and Time will be out of sync.

Revelation 6:14
“And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places”


The punch line is that we may live long enough to see this with our very eyes one day.

Soon.

Nice pics and all, but I'm afraid you are about as far off as you can get. Firstly, since you Christians seem to visualise the Trinity as a hydrogen atom, and that the image of a whore banging anti-hydrogen atoms is Quantum in nature-- where is the bloody light? You know the Quantum particles, also called Photons? And where are the quarks and positrons and bosons? And their anti-particles? I bet they would love to get banged by the pretty whore too?!? To the lovely sounds of the superstrings? Eh?

Here's the drill:
Dragon:
Planetary pantheon lead by Jupiter/Zeus/Baal/Marduk... take your pick, they've been biting our direction since the beginning, and displayed as the main enemy (Satan) of God throughout the Bible. John the Scribe has chosen the dragons Tiamat (Mesopotamia), Yam (Canaan) and Leviathan (Egypt) and others to merge into the Great Red Dragon. Horns are the heros and lesser gods, the whole Homerian salad and the extended pantheons of all the ancient empires:

Beast:
The seven world empires with their emperors and their extensions, the kingdom states, with their kings and emperors, politicians and governments, senators and well, the whole shambles of politics. Its severed head being Rome or rather the Caesar/Augustus divide and later the divide between the Western Empire centred around Rome and the Eastern Empire around Constantinople. Caesar means lit. Shear or Sever, both words are cognates of Caesar. This is also where the Latinised Jesus comes in as the lost sheep of the Caesars being described as being severed by the same soldier's lance that actually saved him. The ten horns are the ten imperial circles of the Late German/Roman Empire that fell in the 1800's. The kings of these ten Imperial Circles all swore allegiance to the Emperor and the Pope in Rome. Hitler is Daniel's Little Horn, since you brought it up. The three horns that were plucked up were the three offices that were replaced by the Führer, who would be both Reichs-President, Reichs Kansler and head of the armed forces. -- However, you will see this constellation of power throughout Christianity. How pentagon has ten horns/corners for instance. Or how Greece at some point was led by ten generals, even Moses and his ten commandments. But in all essence, the Beast is World Politics and Rule. All the regions represented in the acronym ISIL (Iraq, Syria, Iran and the Levant) are all former empires and fit in nicely together with Hitler who in all essence was attempting to regenerate the Roman Empire, Nero, Alexander's generals and the others. Horns are in Revelation's sense, armies and legions. As in Pentagon with its ten corners. Corner is from Lat. Cornus, it means Horn, as in Unicorn or Capricorn.

False Prophet:
The head of Babylon, currently the Pope as for the Christians, but any such resident imperial prophet. A prophet working on behalf of the empire and the ancient pantheon, coronating emperors and kings, and working as their overseer and seer.

Babylon:
The Official Religion of the Empire. Your religion, mostly, but with the Pope getting soft in the later centuries, any world religion would fit in. But Christianity is most important, telling a story that our Lord had to die for our sins and that his sacrificing his own flesh and blood on Golgatha all your sins are washed away. That he received his deadly blow in the shape of a soldier's lance, but that he mysteriously rose up after three days as if nothing had happened. Poorly hidden Solar worship. They all worship my soul, and what happens? Nothing. Suns don't react to worship. The upmost decadence. What a load of bollocks. It is arcane, re-digested devil worship and you are all doing it

Grrr...you use an alternate assignment of the letters to the paths...

Pic Of Arrangement I'm Familiar With

I believe the arrangement you use is the one I came across in my studies of Chabad. And there is a part of me that thinks it makes a lot of sense. I mean, what are the odds that there would be 3 horizontal paths, 7 vertical paths, and 12 diagonal paths, corresponding to the 3 mother letters, 7 planets, and 12 zodiac signs...that does seem to almost be proof that the attributions you present are the true ones. I haven't studied that arrangement in too much depth, but the only issue it could be said to introduce is a certain arbitrariness to WHICH horizontal/vertical/diagonal path a specific mother-letter/planet/zodiac-sign gets assigned to. Also, if I accept that, that totally undoes all of the studying I have done into the paths of the tree of life, and their meaning...which is quite disheartening, cuz I have put a lot of time into it. But, the meanings I have come to understand the letters to have would probably still elucidate the meaning in the context of the new path assignments...

Anyways, this is a very interesting topic, haven't read through all the pages yet, probably will.

Just out of curiousity, do you have your tree from some sort of Golden Dawn or Crowleyan source? I see this one is modern (contains Uranus and Pluto). These guys are reknown for shuffling around well, everything really, and that sort of ruins the whole thing, sor all of a sudden there is no connection with the books and the Tree other than in the odd picture of it or some likeness.

I'm not saying I have it 100% right though, but the one I developed during this thread is based mostly upon the Bahir and the Sefer Yetzirah. I've even seen them draw in Daat and arrange the branches to form a hexagonal star, instead of the skewed inverted pentagram, it's no point in telling a story when the fall is suddenly edited out and replaced by some geometric diplomacy. Bollocks. But the one I have developed in this thread, I THINK, should be pretty kosher. It's a lovely tree the Sefiroth one, don't you think? I bet you'd be able to convert all you know into this set-up in notime. Thanks for your answer, and sorry for letting you down, boy?

Yes, Crowley is my primary source for this...along with others of the same system. I have done some studying outside of that system, just not too much as it seems to undo the massive amount of time I've spent studying the setup I have. But like I said, the fact that the direction of the paths of the tree can be broken down into 3/7/12, as the sepher yetzirah does, does seem to be almost proof that it is the correct attributions. Yours is really more 'kosher' than mine anyways, it's more of the traditional Jewish understanding. As I said, I'm pretty sure these are the attributions I came across when I studied the tree of life in the context of chabad, and it has its roots with some old venerated Jewish rabbi. I will have to do more studying and contemplation into this arrangement, thanks for bringing it to my attention again.

Crowley had like I said quite a reputation of grabbing the ancient bookes and magical systems to come out of the lead foundries and presses after Gutenberg, transmuting them, as if with some arcane form of alchemy into what he saw as gold and enlightened upgrade of the systems. He has his own deck of Tarot even, and his work with Kabbalah is, eh, creative. I don't pay much attention to his squeeky voice really. But from what I hear, those who learn his systems and practise them gain some quite spectacular sexual experiences, looking at his ways of alchemically transmuting his twisted Enochian words and refurbished ancient systems into just as twisted naked juicy ladies, steaming of hot ecstatic sex majick and rock'n'roll. Hm. He does seem to know how to throw a party though his garden's tree is rather odd, goo-- eh OLD Aliester....

Do not know how the Egyptian mystery schools teaching come out of foundries and Gutenberg presses; more papyrus (written upon) ancient gnostic texts/sea scrolls--in general Gnosticism is 'awareness' and cannot be 'taught' as a belief system. The Thoth tarot (qabala) is of an Egyptian inception/invention; (he is the interpreter of Thoth as Master Therion). All else is your vivid imagination of a possible orgasmic 'hook up' within a roman/greek party style atmosphere.
