## The Ten Numbers

Let us now study these numbers. We are acquainted with the Law of numbers, or law of the sequences, which we have already stated in these terms--

Knave or 2nd He

The ten cards cannot escape from this law, and we can at once arrange them in series.

The first series will be formed of the ace, or 1, representing the active, of the 2 personating the passive, of the 3 for the neuter, and lastly of the 4, which represents the transition from one series to another.

1, 2, 3, 4 therefore correspond also with the Yod-he-vau-he, and are thins formulated--

Ace or Yod

Two or 1st He

2nd He Four

Vau or

Three

The other series follow the same rule exactly, the second He of the preceding series becoming the Yod of the following, series: thus 4, the fourth term of the first series, becomes the first term of the second series; 7, the fourth term of the second, becomes the first term of the third, as follows--

We see that the same law, Yod-he-vau-he, can be applied to these series. Since this law is also applicable to the four figures, we can make a comparison based on the following proposition-Two terms (the numbers and the figures) equal to a same third (the law Yod-he-vau-he) are equal between themselves.
