THE PYRAMID OF THE PAST

The second of the pyramids is inverted. Its downward point penetrates into the innermost depths of the ocean of the human psyche, the human unconscious, the collective unconscious, the world spirit, the ocean of the transcendental wisdom of the Buddha.




(X1)

The pyramid works downwards from card number 22 to card number 44. This pyramid is a continuation of the pyramid of the future.

LEVEL NUMBER ONE: The immediate past, the causes of the future.

LEVEL NUMBER TWO: The further past. The deeper causes of the future.

LEVEL NUMBER THREE: The unconscious. The age of teens.

LEVEL NUMBER FOUR: The drives and childhood.

LEVEL NUMBER FIVE: The human embryo in the womb. The central symbols and archetypes of the collective unconscious. The egg and the sperm. The anima and the animus. The blood and the genes.

LEVEL NUMBER SIX: The world spirit. The original genes and cells. The root cause of human life, containing its final conclusion. Both pyramids supplement each other. Each one card position in the lower pyramid represents the root cause of the event, indicated by the appropriate card in the corresponding position in the upward position, the pyramid of the future. In this particular system, we establish the unity between past and future and learn to enter the dimension of circular time.

THE STAR OF KING SOLOMON:

Using the Space Age Tarot, the consultee sets out to first create The inverted triangle of twenty-one cards, the oracle of the unconscious. Thereafter, he sets out to place the upward pyramid of twenty-one more cards on top of the inverted triangle.

INTERPRETATION:

Cards number 1, 2, 3 and 16, 17, 20 and 21 of the inverted pyramid remain visible.

Cards number 1, 29 and three of the inverted pyramid are the foundation cards. They represent the foundation of all these future events that are being indicated by the cards of the pyramid of the future, namely the upward pyramid.

Cards number 16 and 17 of the inverted pyramid, as they remain visible, represent the root causes of the events of the near future.

Cards number 20 and 21 represent the root causes of the events of the far future.

INTERPRETATION OF THE PYRAMID OF THE FUTURE; NAMELY THE UPWARD PYRAMID: The pyramid of the future presages future events. The cause of each one of these events indicated can be found by lifting the card and interpreting the card below, the cause card of the partially covered inverted pyramid.

Cards number 1, 2 and 3 of the pyramid of the future indicate the final answer to the question asked of the pyramid, the final conclusion of the oracle.

ALTERATIONS: If the final conclusion section of the pyramid of the future, namely, cards number 1, 2 or three indicate an unsatisfactory omen, the consultee may remove any one or all of the cards number 1, 2 and 3 of the inverted pyramid.

EXAMPLE: The consultee is dissatisfied with the omen indicated by card number 2 of the pyramid of the future. He therefore, removes the cause card, namely card number 2 of the inverted pyramid. He places that card into the remaining portion of the deck, shuffles the deck seven times and then takes the top card of the deck, replacing the cause card number 2. Thereafter, he removes card number 2 of the pyramid of the future, Enters it into the future.

(Xxi)

The remaining portion of the deck, shuffles it for seven times and Then takes the top card of the deck and places it in position number Two on the pyramid of the future. He is advised to do this only once with any card, for the second judgement of the oracle is final. The consultee may follow the same procedure with any face up card of the pyramid of the future, first replacing the cause card below and then the covering card.

LEVELS: LEVEL NUMBER ONE: The cause foundation of the present situation and of future events. LEVEL NUMBER TWO: The is the way in which the cause foundation manifests as the basic of future events. Card number one, level number one governs cards number 16 and 17, level number two. Card number two of level number one governs cards number 18 and 19 of level number two. Card number 3 of level number one governs cards number 20 and 21 of level number two. Ultimately, cards number 1, 2 and 3 of level number one govern cards number 1, 2 and 3 of level number six, the final judgement of conclusion cards.

LEVEL NUMBER THREE: Where events sprouted at level number two, they now grow into sturdy plants, acquiring a basic reality.

 LEVEL NUMBER FOUR: Events are coming up. They are about to materialize.

LEVEL NUMBER FIVE: The card number 5 in the center represents the central event. Cards number 4 and 6 represent the two supplementary events. Cards number 16 and 17 inverted, cause and govern the near future, represented by card number 2 of level number six. Cards number 20 and 21 of the inverted pyramid cause and govern the event of the further future as indicated by card number 3 of level number six.

 LEVEL NUMBER SIX: Card number 1 indicates the final omen, cast by the oracle. All three cards at this level are being caused by cards number 1, 2 and 3 of level number one and governed by those cards.
