{Illustration on the facing page partly represented and partly described:

“LIBER [KABBALAE TRIUM LITERARUM.] Taw SVB FIGVRA CD”

In the top quarter of the page is an elongated Hebrew letter Taw, and within this letter are all the other Hebrew letters except Taw, arranged in three rows and seven columns. These Hebrew letters proceed from right to left thusly:

1st row: ZAIN      VAU       HEH       DALET     GIMEL     BET       ALEPH
2nd row: NUN       MEM       LAMED     KAPH      YOD       TET       CHET
3rd row: SHIN      RESH      QOF       TZADDI    PE        AYIN      SAMEKH

The text given below is presented vertically below each of the seven columns, beginning on the right. The text is bordered on right and left by lotus crowned wands.

“The Magister Templi, the Adeptus, the Neophyte [8 Degree=3Square, 5 Degree=6Square, 0 Degree=0Square]

“The Ultimate Illusion, the Illusion of Force, the Illusion of Matter.

“The Functions of the 3 Orders: Silence in Speech; Silence; Speech in Silence: Construction, Preservation, Destruction.

“The Supreme Unveiling (or Unveiling of Light), the Unveiling of Life, the Unveiling of Love.

“Equilibrium; on the Cubic Stone, on the Path, and among the Shells.

“The Rituals of Initiation, 8 Degree=3Square, 5 Degree=6Square, 0 Degree=0Square: Asar, as Bull, as Man, as Sun.

“The Ordeals of Initiation, 8 Degree=3Square, 5 Degree=6Square, 0 Degree=0Square: Birth, Death, Resurrection.”}

[This analysis may be checked by adding the columns vertically, 69, 81, 93, 114, 135, 246, 357. Dividing by 3 we get 23, 27, 31, 38, 45, 82, 119, which in the Sepher Sephiroth mean respectively Life, Purity, Negation, “38×11=418,” Innocent, Formation, Prayer, Weeping. The analogies are obvious.]
