Picking . . . The Queen of Wands, 2 of Pentacles, & 10 of Wands to express one perspective of the point. . .
Mirrors. Projections. Inspiration!
Everything is n + 1. Each Is More, Each of Us Is More
The Queen of Wands mirrors herself
to envision her blind spots backwards
to naturally flip them
to see right through their mirage
to forget her seeing
remembering the clarity of her energetic vision.
The 2 of Pentacles projects its shadow,
the shadow projecting the light,
the black spot on a yin-yang
more than beauty mark,
the white spot more than hope.
They are wormholes both
these dark dot white spot places
within fields of Other. . .
So far into one
as to become. . .
So far into the Other
to feel distinct Self. . .chthonic numinosity,
the depthful light of self.
Antinomy? Nope. Resolved AS life itself.
The 10 of Wands cockatieling what was once weight
cockatieling what was once unwieldy
coackatieling beyond simply holding it all together,
cockatieling wand-feathers temples flexing
fanning them forward effortlessly in yoga-powered form.
Both night and day in inspiration
brought forth chthonically numinous . . . ?
Or, more resolved like a porch n sky by Maigritte?
Night-time depthful front porch lit under dark tree canopy
under bright day-blue eyes-wide-open sky?
And. . .to sidestep copyright violation. . . maybe this painting says it all: “Empire of Lights” by Rene Magritte.
Or, this one. . . Another complete idea expressed by Magritte. Or, maybe saying or expressing or anything all is not the point.
And, when a triptych is as well quaternal . . . n + 1. 3 + 1 = 4.
Triptych of paintings also as group, a 4th, the quaternity of group.
Triptych in number = Quaternity of the group
And, n + 1.
And, there’s always more . . .
Even less is more, more or less.
Till next time!
p.s. This “Stoicheion-Somata Tarot” article by Christine Payne-Towler plays well with/on Aristotle via the Pythagorean sandbox.
They aren’t really oil and water, though each relatively useless without the other? Ground and dancing figure?
