Evaluating Tarot's Dubious Place in History

Each of us has lessons to learn, yet many of us will die before that occurs.  When we arrive to this plane of existence as infants, we are inchoate beings, innocent and without fault, but also devoid of wisdom or understanding.  When we leave this plane, we are full to the brim of information and facts, both trivial and important, but still with manifold lessons remaining, not just those of history, science or mathematics, but of morality.  None of us, even the greatest saint, is worthy of telling himself he has learned all the world has to teach.  Yet, so many of this earth bask in the glory of their own phony halos, secretly thinking themselves the author of their own immutable truth, the God of their own universe and the keeper of its laws.  The uneducated stay so because to them their position is the best and easiest way to skate through life.  Others of different sociological groups take it upon themselves to act as the police of everyone around them, not inconspicuous in their unearned and incorrect high opinion of themselves.  Even the humanist, clinging to his throne of egalitarianism, wishes that everyone was able to see the world as he does.  He says everyone is entitled to their opinion and often abstains from asserting any himself so that he can maintain a level of artificial dominance over those with the audacity to have one.  Humanity’s defect is that, deep inside, everyone, from the poorest to the richest, talentless to most gifted, believes theirs is the best thinking.  None of us is God.  Despite whatever New Age rhetoric is telling us, all of us are wrong.

Tarot is the ancient playing card deck used for games, as well as divination, the superstitious method of gaining insight.  Questions are posed, either aloud or silently, towards the deck, or whoever may be listening, and the person with the deck makes inferences resulting from which cards are dealt.  Based upon one’s understanding of each card’s symbolism is how the deck is used to provide answers to queries.  The organization of Tarot decks has varied, but the standard modern deck consists of 88 cards falling into two groups.  The “Minor Arcana” is basically similar to the normal 52-card playing card deck, but with different types of suits.  The “Major Arcana”, also called “trumps”, consists of 22 independent cards with whimsical names like “Wheel of Fortune”, “Justice”, “The Sun”, “The Moon”, “The Hermit” and "The Fool".  Each card has been imbued with its own tome of symbolism, the origin of which is impossible to ascertain.

Tarot has been used in both magnanimous and nefarious ways throughout its centuries long history.  Many kind occultists offer readings as a free service, seeing it as a genuine source of potential help for those whom are in some sort of guidance.  Others charge ridiculous fees and make insincere readings to eager clients whose gullibility they exploit.  Unfortunately, Tarot is so flexible that there is no way to prove the legitimacy or illegitimacy of any reading.  It’s not a science nor an art, but an exercise, a meter measuring the universe in units which we do not definitively comprehend.  Every tarot reading ever given likely contains some point of objection to be made by other practitioners.  Someone who knows nothing about Tarot might be forced to stammer their way through a reading and eventually give the same exact reading the world’s greatest expert would.  Tarot card readers are generally a supercilious bunch because by simply making deductions about the way the cards have fallen, they are asserting that their beliefs about the nature of the cards is informed.  The difference between an educated guess and a statement becomes blurred, causing them to think they possess knowledge where all they really possess is assuredness.  Once one becomes set in their ways, their ability to learn new methods of thinking is discontinued.

In this way, Tarot’s historical usage embodies all the faults of humanity.  Humans are stuck in such a ceaseless struggle for survival that if any chance arises for a trick to played, it is.  Knowledge isn’t shared, in order to empower others and the world as a whole, it is kept greedily at the chest, in order to assert dominance over others who lack it.  The reason that Earth’s understanding of Tarot is so nebulous is that those who truly understand it want to use that for their own benefit.  Readings are seldom prefaced by a disclaimer of bias or incomplete knowledge.  In order to market themselves effectively, people who provide readings for others represent themselves as having a deep and profound understanding of the deck, avoiding to admit that they don’t really know what they’re doing at all.  To their clients, the reader’s knowledge is complete and inarguable, relayed from Zion itself.  If they only knew that everyone is faking their way through Tarot and indeed through life, they wouldn’t be so quick to prostrate themselves below a false idol.  Of course, we all need to sometimes procure the assistance, advice, aid or mentorship of others.  Unnatural societal differentiation is created when the teacher becomes too comfortable in their position of leadership, while the student becomes too comfortable in their position of follower.  Even the teacher of millions is student to another.

The Tarot deck’s “Minor Arcana” is similar to the everyday deck, containing cards with names such as the “Five of Swords”, “Six of Cups”, “Seven of Wands” and “Eight of Coins”.  It might be easier and quicker to title these cards just what they are, “Five Swords”, “Six Cups”, Seven Wands” or “Eight Coins”, literally what is shown on the face of the card.  This method, however, would defeat the purpose of Tarot entirely.  If one pulls a single card, for example the “Five of Swords”, the reader is to infer that the universe is placidly asserting that the number five is “of” swords, intrinsically related to and a part of swords.  The esoteric symbolism of the number 5 would in this case be contained within the symbolism of swords.  The “Five of Swords” has the meaning it does because the universe where five is of swords differs from the universe where four or six is of swords.

Ultimately, Tarot is best used as a tool for one’s own study, not for making prophesies about the lives of others, or even oneself.  By gradually acquiring an understanding of each card in the deck, one begins to understand the significance of each number, besides its simple mathematical definition.  For instance, the numbers 3, 6 and 9 have a special significance on this plane.  The triangle has 3 sides, with angles equaling 180 degrees, which is divisible by 3, 6, and 9.  The circle has 360 degrees, also divisible by 3, 6 and 9.  Tarot cards of these numbers thus have interdependent relationships.  Endless formulas, equations and geometric images illustrate that these 3 numbers are paramount to the grand design of the universe.

The colossal secret of the century is that the authors of the mass media have instilled across the entire entertainment industry these exact blueprints, the living version of Tarot incarnated.  The majority of films, television shows, products, magazines, stores, slogans, videogames, songs and albums are titled to follow something called the “Rule of 3”, defined as the great overuse of letters which contain a multiple of 3 according to their place in the alphabet.  That means that most of the words you see everyday in the mass media begin with C (letter 3), F (6), I (9), M (13) , P (16), S (19), W (23), and Z (26).  This, the "3" group, is also used with letters which act to support its power: A (1), B (2), J (10), K (11) and T (20), letters which contain 1 or 2.  Like sacred geometry, upon which the numerological symbolism contained with Tarot is based, this “code” is an arcane subject worthy of unending study and contemplation.  Every single media piece is meant to represent, in the letters and initials of its title, its themes.  The “Rule of 3” is pervasive throughout the mass media because it also permeates through our physical plane of existence.  The remaining letters are eschewed because they are that which permeates through the higher, astral plane of existence, something which is rarely represented in the mainstream media.

Just as with Tarot, the preposition “of” is used to assert that one entity is related to and part of another.  In all other cases, the initials of words is what matters.  However, as used by The Code, “of” does not signify O (15), but instead implies a correlative relationship between the initials on its two sides.  The following list illustrates how the mass media code uses the word “of” in combination with the “Rule of 3”.  Every initial is either a “3” letter, those which contain a multiple of 3 according to their place in the alphabet, or is part of the “catalyst” group, those which contain 1 or 2.  The word “of” solidifies a connection between the initials which it intersects.

Hopefully you aren't surprised by the existence of this code.  Most of us have long been aware that, behind the curtain, Western media was hiding something, sinister or benevolent.  The entertainment industry is not just a business, it's a tool, used by the governors of the world to instill in the people the qualities they wish.  The consumerist culture is often maligned, but the ultimate goal of the Illuminati class is to make us thirsty for life, not greedy for products, but greedy for adventure, creation, experience, relationships and spirituality.  In order to live our lives fully, we had to be oblivious to the code, exist despite it.  Although it may sound not sound intuitive, having a closed mind is sometimes better than an open one.  The Code has been nagging at all of our consciousness for the entirety of our lives.  The people who blocked themselves from it are those who enjoyed their lives the most.  Spiritualists are the ones who've lived with a burden upon them, unable to solve the cosmic puzzle constantly haranguing them.  When the code is fully disclosed to the public, they will be vindicated, freed, and given back their nature.
