(Hebrew for "The Tree of Life"
(Drawings by Adam Blatner)

Posted July 31, 2013 (though drawn over the previous 30 years)


I have been charmed by the Kabbalistic Tree of Life diagram, a "map" of the stages of emanation from the Divine to the Mundane (going out or down), or (going up) the various levels of meditation and contemplation that hint at successively higher levels of mystical enlightenment. I write of the significance of this latter process in another website. It is the form, though, that offers an opportunity for elaboration in many ways, a form that represents the vertical axis that hints at the "Great Chain of Being," and the horizontal axis that hints at the range or extent of the variety of elements to be integrated.

So I've drawn a number of pictures of these designs!


Others of course have created elegant pictures of the Tree of Life.

The Kairotropister is a device that, were it to have 3-dimensional form, looks something like this:
A diagrammatic expression of how these parts work.

More Pictures.

These are from the odd book titled The Anatomy of the Body of God
by Frater Achad. Interesting permutations of geometry.
