There are 32 degrees and then the 33rd honorary degree, right?
Keeping in mind that Bible scholars talk about 42 Generations From Abraham to Jesus, the best 32 I've been able to discover is this.....
7 x 40 x 42 = 11,760 and........
11,760 divided by 365 = 32.2 which very oddly reminds me of 322.
It takes a little over 32 years to go through the full cycle.
That is the very best 32 I've ever heard of, and nobody else talks about it, so I've always thought it must be important.
Your thought are not so wrong, despite not right. None of the numbers in sacred geometry are even or seldom they are. The golden rule that builds all in the universe depend on Phi and Phi is 22/7.
Now, 33, 23, 12, 18, 7 all those numbers have a real importance in the geometry of the cosmos, same as numbers like 212 or 666.
The jewish alphabet has 22 letters, 3 mother, arir fire and water, 12 singles, the zodiac and 7 doubles, the planets and those are also the number of cards in the great arcana of the tarot, the human body has 22% water and his head is made of 22 bones. The body has 33 vertebrae, has two paired set of 23 chromosomes, the zodiac has 12 signs and the sun moves trough it by steps of 1 degree every 72 years what makes 25920 years, count the numbers of that sum together and you get 18. 212 x Phi is 666 and so on and we could take hours to go trough the gematria hidden in names of the scriptures and what they mean.
The ancients had a system to hide the scientific evidences that where prosecuted by the religious authority to death if they ever tried to change anything in science that could cause any attempt to faith the way they teach it and wanted it to be and remain.
Out of this became the scriptures that contain this wisdom written between lines in coded branches and the gematria that greek and hebrew alphabet allowed them to do so.
Secret societies base there degrees on that system and this is due to the fact that philosophical teachings like the Kabbalah on what all is based have set up a system which can open to anyone the philosophy of life, how it emerged and became and how it works and this not only on the level of the human body but the existence and manifestation of matter all over.
There are so many things the common profane doesn't know. i asked so many the question along those that pretend to be in masonry or Kabbalah to give me an approach to what the signs of the Zodiac or the great arch of Noah mean and relate with human behavior. The kabalistic tree of live has the great arcana of the Tarot in the 22 path and with the 10 sephirot it is the basic tree it is the 32 degrees that masonry has and if we add that hidden sephira called Eloha Va Daath, the supreme wisdom or light, symbolized by the brightest star in heaven, Sirius, we have the 33 degrees.
The 3 of life is not more then you spinal cord, from the head to your feet and with all the branches that control your functions, your mind, your behavior and feelings, including the motion of your 2 arms where with one you can take and the other can give. That 3 elements, spine and the 2 arms are that 3 pillars of life one finds in the tree. That tree is the human all in all that has behaviors, ways of thinking, different levels of creativity and all those things are again symbolized in 4 different levels of the tree where every sign of the zodiac has a specific place and the planets as well and here it is the symbol of the Planets that are the key and not the Planet itself. I will post the meaning in the next post.
So, there is much that the common mortals do not know and taking time to ask what the 33 degrees mean is waisting time since it is a very bitty part of the whole puzzle.
so in the next post I give you something different to think about and see if you understand what the zodiac and planets are in relation to your personality.
