OK, well, that image is the Tetragrammaton, as you know, within a Pythagorean figure of the tetractys. It's just showing that the Divine Name YHVH can be put into a form that has geometric as well as symbolic significance. The yod on top represents the point of origin. The yod, he on the second line represents the line, next in a geometric emanation. The yod, he, vav on the third line is the first emanation from point to line into an actual surface, a triangle, the minimal needed 3 points to present a surface, and the final full four letters the yod, he, vav, he can be arranged into a square for a full material manifestation. That's the general idea of that arrangement. It correlatates math with letters with form with actually how the universe came to being, from a point, then a Big Bang (the beginning shown as a line, a line of energy occurring), into a plane and then material. It's kinda cool how symbolically it can then geometrically be "seen" and realize that that's actually how it occurred in our universe! It's a great meditation picture.

Is this smaller image readable? It looks really small on my computer screen. I suppose I could enlarge the type from the computer screen to see it however. How does it look on your phone?

You can save the image, then go back to it and press: "'more'
Then press 'resize image'
Then adjust the height to 700, and width will adjust itself automatically
Then 'save as' ... In the box at the bottom give it a name
Then try it
If unsuitable, bring it up again keep altering dimensions and 'saving as' with a new tag 1, 2, 3 or whatever, until you're satisfied

I think?

-- you'll get there, lol

Ayiyi.... that's pretty cotton pickin huge all right....I'll figure it out. Kind of a cool thing though that the Kabbalah Tree of Life can be placed on man just like the chakras from the Far East! After all, both traditions are tying in man with the cosmos, just using different names and arrangements for the symbols.

I can't wait to do some of the geometry figures the Kabbalah discusses... That will be interesting me thinks.

Kabbalah is one of those Jewish traditions which was also taken up and modified and developed in other directions by various Christian and then later Ceremonial Magic groups.

If we're going to discuss it here in the Jewish context, then the chakras don't make much sense. On the other hand, the Esoteric subforum might be a better place for a more eclectic context.

True that. No, I'll keep it in the Jewish Zohar context here. I was just practicing trying to post images is all. On the other hand, doing this also in the esoteric forum would be cool as well.
