The simplest overall explanation of what I mean by "studying qabalah increases intelligence" is on the last page of these four. I want to give you, my guest, a technobabble warning here- some of this qabalah talk might seem irrelevantly intellectual. In order to speak to the broadest base of people, including those who have already studied the qabalah and who will be judging this presentation based on my technical qabalah skills, I have to throw in some qabalahspeak.
For those who aren't familiar with technical qabalah, just browse these pages
and see if there's anything that does seem interesting to you. Then read the short essay
on the last page.
Here is an example of the diagram of the "Traditional" Tree of Life. 10 sepheroth or spheres, although Daath (the dotted line sphere) is an "implied" 11th sphere. The basic concept is of a stacked hierarchy of 3's (three element groups). Think of it as a flow chart of how consciousness and reality 'works'.
*Now, for the purposes of this short presentation, let me
give you an explanatory aside. In the illustrations following I use a modified tree of
life diagram. The intelligence increase effect I'm suggesting has nothing to do with this
'new diagram'-- you'll get the effect just as readily, and probably even easier and
faster, with the traditional diagram/map/flowchart pictured above. But, I do use the
modified diagram below, so those are the illustrations I have. I think they are
interesting and fun to look at, but I want to make it clear that there's nothing 'magical'
implied in the changed diagram.*
|As a way of overcoming some of the rigid top-down two-dimensionality of this diagram, I like to think of the tree tree on it's side, shuttling back and forth between Existence (malkuth, which means kingdom, the brown sphere at the 'bottom') and Other-Than-Existence (Ain, infinity, the colorless sphere at the 'top'), back and forth for each experiential moment.|
Back and forth, thousands of times per second.
