    This is my understanding, as best as I can describe, trying to keep it as simple as possible:

    Its really about climbing the tree. From gross to subtle.
    The process of initiation, the stages one must pass through before becoming purified (or perfected [freemason], or distilled/white stage [alchemy], is the passage towards melding the astral self with the natural/ego self. After initiation, which is essentially the consequence of agreeing to the path, which first cause is ultimately the destruction of the petty ego, next step is the appearance and prominence of the astral/etheric self which is kind of like a second state of consciousness perceivable as seeing those things which are the forces behind the physical causes of earthly matter and action. It is a state not outside, but within, that once harnessed/mastered can then further work to connect with the forces of the higher planes. However, the higher we reach on the upper planes, the more primordial, subtle and abstract the states of consciousness become. I like to think of this as the "thinking about thinking about thinking about thinking" scenario. There are 4 steps here. There are four planes of reality on the Kabbalah tree.

    For example, Its easy to do the first two steps of thinking and then thinking about thinking; and then possibly the third stage; but the fourth becomes almost too difficult to conceive. At some point we are dealing with a type of subconsciousness that is on a singular level which is seemingly automatic. If we were to sit still and pay attention to each thought that passes before our "eyes", we begin to assume that this level of thought is arriving from a vast source outside. In fact, from what I understand, this is the realm of deep consciousness attributed to Binah, the supernal mother (upper one rather than lower/earth) from which form is conceived.

    The truth is that this "automatic" type of consciousness/subconsciousness can be controlled, or, at least lead onward by will, which is kind of like the gas which goes in your car to make it move. I find this idea quite relevant to the theme of the "Shepherd", which appears throughout antiquity. The shepherd is one who allows their self to be free of the need to control (ego) and allows themselves to be lead, however, the ultimate destination is the ultimate will of the Shepherd. The Shepherd both directs and allows their self to be lead. Two become singular.

    At every moment we are bombarded with incoming signals. Standing on the mount like the rose swaying in the "breath of Zues", above the beasts of life- the astral and further lower-level urges which distract or detour us and threaten to confine us to lower states of awareness, where we are ruled by the King of Terrors.

    I have read the works of some that describe the process as a "reversing" of this astral, or akashic, fluid/force that we might naturally find ourselves on the receiving end of. Reversing implies a process of production rather than passive receptivity.

    There is another idea that is relevant from another whose work I have read that states the process is akin to reversing the flow of memory. In this scenario, rather than the normal arrival of a thing or event into our lives that we later react to, we reverse this process by beginning with the emotional response to what we would expect to arrive and essentially "trick" our memories into believing, or perhaps more accurately, taking for granted that which is desired, much in the same way we have accepted or come to terms with something that has already transpired. In this sense, it is also a way of "tricking" time.

    There is of course so much more to it. The six first refers to the middle part of the tree, where the planetary attributions are, but then past another level of initiation, the six become the top six of the tree. This leaves four at the bottom and produces an important and common symbol which consists of a circle made of the top six spheres and a cross out of the bottom four.

    I am working on another piece withe more details, but it gets quite abstract from here and more difficult to work with in writing.

    I hope this makes sense and is helpful.
    Hayward,

    Thank-you for the detailed and clear description.

    It is my understanding that an individual on the path, is not alone, but uses unseen hands guidance. This is very different than using the various earthly establishments which claim to promote the Mysteries – although belonging to, say, a Lodge would not be contradictory to the pursuit, either.

    Your narrative so much reminded me of the simultaneous dual plaintext meaning of the line

    HERE CONJURE THE BEAST WITH THE KEY

    1) use the Key to conjure the beast
    2) conjure the Beast that has the Key


    The logic, I believe, is simple and inescapable, and explained in more detail in the puzzle encoding.

    As to my understanding, yes, the ‘marriage’ of the conscious and subconscious is central – the subconscious providing the bridge that extends beyond the individual. Here’s a quote, with my addition in parentheses

    “Still, get your ruler out.”
    “(be) Still, (and) get your Ruler out (replace the Beast with another Ruler)”

    The Key, and its application, is not different today than it was thousands of years ago, and certainly not any different than when this puzzle was introduced into the public .
