Affinity Between The Figures And The Numbers

We have already studied both the figures and the numbers separately, let us now see what connection exists between the figures and the numbers.

If we group the similar terms according to the identical Law which rules them, we shall find them as follows--

The King is the

Yod

of

1. 4.

7

The Queen ---

He

of

2. 5.

8

The Knight ---

Vau

of

3. 6.

9

The Knave---

2nd He

of

10

The sequence of the figures is reproduced three times in the series of numbers, that is to say, that each series of numbers represents a conception of the figures in each of the three Kabbalistic worlds.

The series 1, 2, 3, 4 represents the emanation of the sequence king, queen, knight, knave in the divine world.

The series 4, 5, 6, 7 represents this evolution in the human world. The series 7, 8, 9, 10 represents this evolution in the material world. Each colour is a complete whole, formed after the manner of beings. Of a material body:

Of a vital force:

Of an intellect:

Of reproductive organs:

Each of these parts can subdivide itself into three others, as the numbers indicate. 1

Ut us, however, return to our deduction, and by summing up the results obtained, we shall find-

Representations of the Yod:

The King The 1 or Ace The 4 The 7

Representations of the He:

The Queen The 2 The 5 The 8

Representations of the Vau:

The Knight The 3 The 6 The 9
