There are many Hermetic, Alchemical, and Qabalistic codes and puzzles out there, but one for me came full 'circle' (pun intended) recently. Let us dive in.
360 (degrees) = 9.
In esoteric terms, 9 is the completion as all the numbers we use run from 0 to 9, and 10 is the beginning of a new cycle. 10 = another 'one' circle / cycle / revolution.
9 in esoteric numerology is initiation, a bridge, and every multiplication of 9 reproduces itself e.g 9x17 = 153 = 1+5+3 = 9.
In Qabalistic terms, 9 is the Sephirah Yesod, the psychic centre, the dream world, the astral, the storehouse of images, electromagnetics, the machinery of the universe in the invisible, the magic of the moon, and the bridge to the spirit / inner worlds (leading up to Sephirah 6, Tipareth, the Viel).
Some years ago I was in solitude up a volcano.....here it is...
....and I was going deep into some Qabalistic puzzles, one of which was why is there 360 degrees in a circle and a sphere? I mean it seems such a random number, why 360? Why do all planets have 360 degrees? Why do they all spin 360 degrees? Why do they all move in orbit at 360 degrees? Why do the Qabalistic Sephiroth (spheres) have 360 degrees?
I went into a deep spin with this (and other Qabalistic puzzles) as you can see in some of my notes below.....
A few months ago I read an article on the (controlled, lying, peado and zionist loving) BBC, stating isolation warps the mind - and that one can conjure up mathematical puzzles in ones head that mean nothing at all - and it's a sign one going crazy.
"He kept his sanity during solitary confinement by taking refuge in a world of abstractions, making up mathematical problems which he then tried to solve."
I laughed as I know the BBC loves people in group think and nice and safe in the society box. What is a warped mind anyway? There's no such thing.
....Then two weeks ago I came across this - the solution to my "360 degrees" hermetic puzzle.
The world of mysticism is far beyond the propaganda of the BBC, as great movie makers and authors remind us.
