Tarot Illuminati-Key 16-The Tower

---the destruction of Self at the edge of the abyss.

Severity visits us because we refuse to change, and that refusal is entropy which will not be favored by the Soul's transformative process. Thus, salvation falls from the Heavens, like lightning and begins toppling the obsolete ego, in order to allow the personality/body to continue further progress. The Love of Spirit, demands we as its physical representative, stand in our power, and not kneel to our weakness. That Power, the ability to do work, requires adaptation, change, flexibility and often, complete egoic self-reconstruction. Attitudes no longer adequate for the situation shall be swept away by the Spiritual motion within for the material world is transitory but the soul is immortal in its movement of I AM.

both basically state the message that the inner self, will change outer self, whether it likes it or not. Because of the Mars martial force being applied, the harder one resists change the more traumatic the required change will be.

The Thoth Tarot, AYU 16 is subtitled "war" by Crowley and in medieval times it was called the "house of god" or the "blasted tower" and in the Tarot Illuminati version of Key 16, it is a "house of god" being blasted by lightning and Yod (hand) force falling like rain, implying the "hand of god" was in this action. For it is under the influence of Mars and attributed to the Hebrew letter Peh {Meaning-Mouth}, referring to Mars as a destroyer. Hence, cosmic energy is represented in its most primeval form.

What is traditionally shown as key 16 the Tower, is the destruction of the existing material by fire, and/or the old Aeon of Osiris (The Patriarch) being destroyed for the establishment of the New Aeon of Horus, shown as the Great Eye of Horus in the art of the Thoth Card. On the Tarot Illuminati card, the Patriarchy is shown as "being blasted" by the wrath of the Divine Creative as a king and queen falling from the Cathedral. This great "I" is a new identity, that of the Divine Child of the Divine Creative (Christ or Buddha consciousness), coming to the mundane man-made identity of past institutional indoctrination. . As we all know, new software (identity) requires erasure of the old, before it can operate or upgrade the hardware or in the human body sense, the "wet ware", properly. Thus, we have the geometric shapes of man-made identity falling from the avant garde art of the Thoth tower, as there are no straight lines in nature who constructs all things from "spiral energy". Therefore, life is flexible and ever changing; something the righteous man can never be.

The formula for the avoidance of the Tower Card in the Thoth Tarot, is the complete appreciation of all things created. The Self must equally rejoice in not only the smooth and fertile but also in the rugged and barren. Right and wrong are foolish thoughts of the mentally constipated. All things exist, because they are Created to do so. Thus, societies, that are based on Ruler definitions of what is Right and What is Wrong, are doomed to destruction. As history has shown, every Nation thinks it is the best, and every one of them falls. To destroy others in the name of right, will destroy you.

This destruction is illustrated at the bottom of the Thoth card as being the destruction of the Old Ridged Military Industrial Aeon by lightning engines of War. When one worships military might as authority over others and thereby resisting change, one is destroyed by that very god (Authority) they worship. Thus, the jaws of Dis (Roman god of destruction) belch forth the flames of destruction, and/or purification. Falling from the tower, the destroyed garrison of the military industrial empire, are those of man-made indoctrination. You may note that they are made of straight lines, i.e. unnatural, hence, they represent man-made identity.

The Ultimate reality of perfection is No-thing-ness, for only the "Waves" (disturbances or imperfections) in the No-Thing becomes something. This is because perfection has no further measure, it is done. Thus, only out of imperfection can flexible and evolutionary existence and motion exist. For instance, life itself, is always trying to achieve a perfect balance, but environment is unstable, and therefore, Life must continually adjust its balance.

In metaphysics, we now know that One Mind who is perfection, is not seeking perfection, for that is about as smart as a fish in the ocean looking for water. We are all to be unstable, that is imperfect, so that we keep moving forward, seeking balance, experimenting in Self Awareness for that is the "Joy of God", expressed as "I Will BE"! In other words, to make a long story short, the Divine Creative-the I AM- enjoys being, and self-awareness-M e- which requires self-discovery in the eternal NOW Each of us has the purpose of spending our lives in active experience. Self-discovery requires measurement, developed by senses, something the infinite cannot do unless it creates "Self within It-Self". Hence, we, the created identity of I AM Me, will always be imperfect, and thank god for that, as that means I shall always progress; maybe stumbling along to keep my balance in life's constant movement, but always experiencing self as it faces issues and solves them (entertainment). The secret is to turn that stumbling into a dance of joyous passion, which some call, "enjoying the journey". I for one, know that a diamond, the perfect and absolute stasis (righteousness) of the carbon atom, cannot dance! We must will to live to be, and will to die to become I AM ME. Thus, the dove on the left side of the All Seeing "I" on Thoth Card, symbolizes the Will to live (the spirit-feminine), and on the right is illustrated the Lion-Serpent (The spirit male) the will to die/transform.

The Yod (Hebrew for: hand) of the Divine shapes the Shin (fire) into forms of Self-Knowledge, and in the Tower cards,that Yod force reforms the True Persona which our worn-out and indoctrinated enslaved self-belief is not and therefore, consumed and purified, resurrecting us as a rising Phoenix of renewed purity. The trouble with purity, is that once the substance is removed from the furnace that purified it, impurities from the environment soon cling to it and it must be returned to the furnace to cleanse it and so it is for self-identity. Only the pure fiery spirit can cleanse it of all that is unworthy of Divine Self-identity. Hence, Life and death are known to the Qabalists as phases of a single element (Divine-Self-Awareness) that is constantly Real- I-zing itself (The All Seeing Eye (i)). In the end, we all must fall to the pollution of survival thinking, to be cleansed in the bright fiery Mind that is Spirit, and then stand again, innocent and pure. For only in an unpolluted base-material, can new things be nurtured and grown.

Tarot Illuminati-Key 16- Tower card .

As can be seen, the Tarot Illuminati-Key 16- Tower card implies all the same meanings of the Thoth Tower. However, the Cathedral is specifically pointed out as the subject of God's Wrath. Hence, implying the destruction of dogma. Both dogma and indoctrination, shape and form our "false ego's" and/or personalities. We are released from this form of slavery only when we realize we are the Image of the I AM----for from our very mouths comes the declarations of Greater Self: I AM health, I AM wealth, I AM happiness, I AM sickness, I AM poverty, I AM sadness I AM too fat, I AM too small etc..
