The Major Key Scale: Paths, Diagrams, Table on Contents. (notes on esoterica/mysticism)

*I draw the figures myself as part of my method. The understanding gained by looking differs from the understanding gained by doing/recreating. But to be clear: I know I don’t understand. I am unbothered by this. I give my method not as a suggestion, but as a token of my intent in transparency*

The Sephirotic Tree (found in Sufi meditation manual The Ecstasy Beyond Knowing)


Diagram (table of contents?) found between the two title pages of Umberto Eco’s Foucault’s Pendulum.

The pages numbers and spelling variations, outside of the drawn SPHERES, are my notes and not present in Eco’s figure.


This is my attempt to syncretise the two and then discern through contemplation


This is the iteration I currently contemplate. It contains the previous three iterations and now attempts to include those symbols used by hermetic traditions in their depictions of the Sephirotic Tree. Best to view this as a best guess. I am not affiliated and thus cannot speak to the meaning ascribed under these traditions. This was taken from the Wild, Wild, West that is internet research. It is not a truthful representation of knowledge. It is a method for further methodological contemplation and meditation.


This is the Key Scale in order.


There are 22 possible paths in this Tree of Life.

Here is as far as I have gotten currently.

New to the world of blogging, I have always been fascinated by the scientific endeavor and I read about or engage with those processes as much as possible. I am a compulsive reader and writer (predominately non-fiction and scholarly work) With a background in anthropology and as an arm-chair/backyard scientist, I hope to improve my writing skills and learn about any areas of weakness or misunderstanding in my analytic skills. I want to improve and am particularly interested in science blogging and creating science content as a freelancer. I work for a wonderful company procuring high asset/risk insurance coverage for niche businesses and professionals, not fitting typical underwriting models as a day job. I am excited to share my journey through scientific discussion, essays, how to's, technical papers, creative non-fiction, with some free verse prose thrown in for my own fun. Thank you for spending time here. Please reach out if you are so inclined. I'd be excited to hear from you.

  1. Why do you feel foolish? You shared with a lone individual. That sounds rewarding in itself, have a correspondant. Plus, you and I ultimately did the same thing. We studied, we tried, then did and shared the result.

    Are you not also “set to gain” from your own research and knowledge? My assumption upon reading you is that you feel betrayed or as though this individual did not repay what you gave. Is that the case? I respect your emotion here as our subject matter is heavy and of power.

    1. Thank you for sharing K. I will remove our comments from this post in respect of your privacy. How I howl at hearing this. Blood boils. Emotions are valid. The actions we take from our emotions however…
      An attempt to destroy your reality. Vengeance of an ignorant person. The very person you shared your spiritual seeking with. I howl for you, K. Howling for your pain. Howling for that person’s pain. So much pain to have come from love.

      That is the irony, yes? The thing I hope you remember because it speaks to the power you possess. This person seems to have found reality without you unacceptable and so tried to ruin yours. You were perfection to them. Power. You showed this person the well spring of your spirituality. What they saw from you must have been spiritual effulgence. They again saw the power of you.

      Those photos are powerful because you are. Your body is you. You cannot be exposed. We are told people seeing us bare and raw should embarrassing. We should feel shame. We are physically divine. That is what frightens them. That is why they do these things. Probably without awareness. To try and control what they see as a threat to their power. Control us and our opinions of ourselves. They lack the control. They fear what they do not possess (our bodies) because of how badly they wish they did, could, possess the form of us. The form of the feminine.

      Celebrate your power. Consider your power. Lament the ignorant and mourn the weak. But know that power can never be taken from someone. It can only be displaced, shifted, or shared.

      as this person felt like their reality was destroyed
