FO-HI, Chinese philosopher, has made a system of
philosophy, of science, and of life, with
the Key in these 8 KOUAS.
The basis of the KOUA
is the YANG,
(Pingala, positive), and the YINN,
(Ida, negative). These subtile principles exist in everithing,
according to the Polarity
of YANG and YINN, to make the different things. (Ref. sulphur,
mercury, salt of last week¨s lecture.)
The symbol of YANG
The symbol of YINN
Thus we symbolise Heaven as
perfect, positive, objective, ie
On the other hand Earth is three times YINN
Disease comes from excessive polarity if YINN.
Thus in Chinese medicine they puncture with needles to infuse gold
YANG or YINN according to need. From these 8 combinations they make a
system of Astrology. In this
way they have only 8 Signs instead of 12. The 8 Kouas can
make 64 combinations
Chart 2 gives the
16 basic Roots of Chinese. There are in all 409, making 10.000
characters, (little drawings), 2.000 glyphs, which make 10.000
characters, (little drawings).
In the Chinese Dictionary there are 42.000
characters. In Chinese there is no ABC but different Roots.
The numbers 1,2,3,4, etc, at the side agrees with the Hebrew
Alphabet, in numeric value only, The Hebraic alphabet is the
base and the Chinese is placed with it.
In Occultism, those 16 roots are the important and interesting ones.
(Ref. The writing, “The Tau of the King”, by Lao-Tse.)
The Signature of
Solomon (A), and Seal
of Solomon (B).
This is called the CLAVICULE of Solomon, (Ref.
similarity to the collar- bone, clavicle). This gives the instruction
of the Holy Traditions of the Hebrews,
(the Kabbalah). The picture in A is the plan of the galleries of the
Temple, and gives the direction,
The 4 Hebraic letters are:
Note:- The feet of each
Letter are turned to the centre of the circle. (Note the corruption
of the form of Beth).
In the Magic Ceremony they employ this PANTACLE,
the CLAVICULE of Solomon. It is a neutral PANTACLE, and, made in
lead, it is always a protection against everything, especially
and evil spirits.
The T, (Tau), in the centre is an Egyptian symbol
of Initiation. It is the last letter of the Atlantean alphabet,
and thus, in the Temples of
Atlantis, it is the Symbol of the last
step of Initiation.
In Egypt, the T, (Hammer), was used at the last room, to prevent the
infiltration of the uninitiated who failed at the last password.
Thus, in Freemasonry, the use of the Hammer to eliminate the
Christ on the Tau,,
never on the Roman Cross
It was His last Initiation, hence the tau. (Note:- the Head of the
Christ appears to shape the Roman Cross.)
(Christian Kabbalist), take the Tau as their Symbol of the two
polarities, of the two numbers of
Heaven and Earth. In the Bible Cross and multiply
is a Key.

readings of a number:-

Chart 4 shows the 6 Signs revealed to Solomon by
METRATON, who is supposed to be an angel. These are the basis of many
Symbols. Ref. Freemasonry
They are the 6 Keys of understanding for all the secret sciences.
