Paul Foster Case based it on the Sefer Yetzirah. The book talks about the structure of something but doesn’t say exactly how it looks.
The Cube of Space (wikipedia) is based upon two verses in the Sepher Yetzirah. Chapter four’s verse associates the six Hebrew letters with the six cardinal directions: up, down, east, west, north, and south, and chapter five’s verse associates the 12 Hebrew letters with either 12 diagonal directional ‘arms’ or 12 diagonal boundaries. Different translations contradict each other; with some interpreting the 12 Hebrew letters as referring to the 12 edges of an octahedron while others like Paul Foster Case interpreted these as the 12 edges of a cube.
To this day no one knows the origins of the Sefer Yetzirah. Some say Abraham (father of Ishmael and Isaac) wrote it but then he would have to have had knowledge that is above his understanding. The original book by Abraham is based on how the things of our universe came into existence. Paul Foster Case published the Cube of Space in his book “The Tarot: A Key to the Wisdom of the Ages.” This is where I am getting the information for the Major trumps. I am posting the cliff notes version of it on Reddit otherwise everyone would have to buy the book to follow along.
I didn’t want to mention what I know or how I know until later when the cube is described in further detail… much later on. I was communicated a message in a dream “Rabbi’s first”. This is my interpretation of working with the divine or higher self which I will describe later on Reddit. I interpreted that as Jesus’s disciples in the order that they joined him. There is more to that one dream with that phrase but it’s too much to explain to anyone who hasn’t been interpreting their dreams or random thoughts. The Foundation of the Cube is basically saying this is where we began and what we should be learning along the way. From another point of view would be to say that YES some of us will get stuck along the way and have to repeat certain areas in order to progress. In other words, it appears that there is a certain order of development but in reality everyone progresses at different stages or has to go back and repeat other stages before they can learn to move on.
I haven’t gotten into this part yet on Reddit but I believe the stages of development have to do with the combinations of the trumps that are near by. For example, the first stage is in the Northeast part of the Cube. This is the Emperor trump or Peter (the first apostle which means rock or stone). Hebrew letter Heh which means window is how we view situations from the outside looking in and from the inside looking out. In other words, there is more than one way to a view a situation. How we learn this information is limitless. The trumps close by in combination with the Emperor is how we are learning this part of creation.
I am guessing that the Foundation of the Cube (12 edges) are the first 3 densities but I could be wrong. The sides of the cube appear to be our level of awareness ranging in 7 types of consciousness. Which are the state of waking consciousness; deep sleep; dreaming; transcendental consciousness; cosmic consciousness; god consciousness; unity consciousness. Which side of the cube goes with which aspect of consciousness is still being explored. I had a dream last night hinting that Genesis in the Bible describes these aspects so more investigating… Yay! The sides of the cube could be 3rd density and up but I’m still unsure of this information.
My hypothesis for the Cube of Space is that we are working our way from the outside to within. This will be explained further with the Armor of God (Ephesians 6:10 - 20). The Aspects of Divine hints toward the Armor of God with the display of the Greek Gods that go along with each side of the Cube. I was originally going to go with the Archangels to tie everything and have it related to the Bible however I ran into a problem when 2 of the 7 angels could not be placed properly according to the days of the week. The source I was using had too much false or contradicting information so therefore I went with the Greek Gods. Each Greek God goes with a specific piece of armor.
Those are just my notes on the side of the cross. The final version hasn’t been created yet. The cross is the Cube unraveled. The 6 sides of the cube are the Gods who wear the armor. The 7th God is at the center of the cube.
- Apollo/ Sun (Feet fitted with the readiness of the gospel of peace)
- Artemis/ Moon (Belt of Truth)
- Ares/ Mars (Sword of Spirit)
- Hermes/ Mercury (Helmet of Salvation)
- Zeus/ Jupiter (Breastplate of Righteousness)
- Aphrodite/ Venus (Shield of Faith)
- Cronus (The World trump aka Saturn)
Essentially, the gods put on their armor and prepare to battle Cronus at the end of time. I am thinking that Cronus is the blackhole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy. Our experiences are the outside of the cube or the stars and the planets getting sucked into the blackhole. This is why on the “Aspects of Divine” link I have Cronus as eating his children. In Greek mythology this is how the story is told.
The inner aspects of the cube have not been explored entirely. I believe this is how 6th density higher self and above communicates messages to us in order for us to learn everything. This will be explained later on Reddit. I believe this has to do with the diagonal lines along with the intersecting coordinates of Judgement, Hanged Man, Fool and World trumps. The diagonal lines are displayed as the following:
- Key 10 - Final Kaph - Southeast Below to Northwest Above
- Key 12 - Final Mem - Center
- Key 13 - Final Nun - Northeast Below to Southwest Above
- Key 16 - Final Peh - Southwest Below to Northeast Above
- Key 17 - Final Tzaddi - Northwest Below to Southeast Above
Each line within the cube intersect at the center or Final Mem (Hebrew letter). I am sure the reader is curious how this is going to be depicted so that everyone can understand how this works. “The Tarot: A Key to the Wisdom of Ages” by Paul Foster Case showed an example which blew me away.
Final Tzaddi (fish-hook) pulls out intersecting Final Nun (fish - meaning transformation) out of intersecting Mem (water) toward Hierophant (inner guidance), Lovers (team work), and Star aka Tzaddi (changing conflict).
In other words, Higher self is always sending us messages to change our mind about how we are progressing in certain situations. They use metaphor in our dreams that we need to interpret. First we create an experience then they try to help us see from another point of view. We change the experience or repeat the experience. Then higher self again tries to change our point of view. When interpreting dreams, however, it appears as your day being experienced before it happens. It isn’t until the end of the day that the dream makes more sense because the experience has passed and now you can see what the dream was about. In the end, Higher self is trying to have you see the positive aspect of creation but most people cannot interpret their own dreams therefore everyone is always repeating their own mistakes.
I cannot wait until I begin exploring the rest of the possibilities of the inner cube. Feel free to ask me more questions because I sometimes get ahead of my own thoughts.
