@natecull where’s the connections?
what I do glean from what little I understand of the pathways is that the right-hand side is a little 'higher' than the left, in that energy flows from the 'top down, and right to left', but...
... yeah, the whole point of this variant is to de-emphasise a vertical flow and emphasise a flat circular flow, and the centrality of Tiferet. again, this may be very nonstandard.
I see two energy flows in the inner triads:
Che -> Gev -> Yes
Net -> Hod -> Dat
@zensaiyuki I can't tell you quite why I feel this (other than that there's a very strong tradition of the Seal of Solomon being two overlapping triangles, which I read as counterrotating, and it's roughly following the classical pathways idea of right to left), except that I find it interesting that the Martinist version of the Seal appears to show something similar.
All of this may well just be random neural firings, of course.
@zensaiyuki Like one of the things I find confusing about the classical Tree is that I think it's trying to square several competing circles
* the Star of David / Seal of Solomon / Anahata ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anahata_(Heart_Chakra) ) hexagram, a triangle of Heaven, Triangle of Earth, heart center
* the Greek Tetractys, a set of 10 increasing pyramidally from the top
* a human figure
and it's doing an okay-ish job, but, these are fundamentally awkward concepts to try to unify in one 2D diagram.
@natecull the flow of energy is more important than the nodes themselves- its how the name of an angel or demon becomes the routing code for their location.
you are right that it doesn’t all fit on a 2D diagram. it’s harder to visualise but I am fairly certain traditional tree it’s a 4D subset of a 5D figure, projected crudely onto 2D
@natecull the trouble with it is in 2D it’s like an escher impossible figure. stuff doesn’t untangle until you get up to 5D
