That animated graphic was pretty cool for showing the kabbalistic Tree of Life and some related symbols. Did you find it provided any particular insights for you?

I've always thought geometry is somehow sacred in an intuitional sense, but due to a personal experience in math class:eek: l maintain a fascination with complete ignorance. so the less exact symbology/art/correspondences was absorbed more naturally in my interests of the continuum and necessity of the finite in the infinite in the finite and the kabbalah is a good avenue [if varied, obviously] of this divine/human exploration just like other religions or systems dealing with metaphysical concerns from an in sightful pov. It is therefore to me a worthy worldview to accompany a journey of life if succumbed to deeply.

Have you been grazing on liberty caps? :D

I posted this on another thread but the link shows at least one of Jung's efforts of spirographic ecstasy...

I think it is very profound and deep.
And we are still just scratching the surface.
Those 2 pics were done by me by the way about 15 yrs ago when I was quite fascinated by it.

BB,

for Jewish kabbalah, yes, but if someone weren't aware of that he might think, from reading this thread, that they can both be present for hermetic qabbalah. That is why I ask if in hermetic qabbalah that is ever possible. Nothing in this thread has explicitly stated that both can't be present at the same time.
