Everything has its place. When things become displaced, they no longer function as they should, or they take on the characteristics of what should be there. The experience is of being lost or disorientated.

The Universe and the Hebrew Alphabet
Beth – a House
The letter Beth is related to Saturn, the heaviest and darkest planet – the opposite of Aleph, The Fool. The Universe represents the matter at hand – the non-self as opposed to the self of The Fool.
Beth means a house, that which encloses and defines our life. The Fool is freedom, unrestricted, free. The house is fixed, a representation of our roots and family. We tasted freedom with The Fool, but now we come back to earth, and it feels heavier, as we see how great our burden is.
My Father has many Mansions
- B – Saturn
- Y – Virgo
- Th – Moon
Two is where the real work begins, but there is redemption as the Moon is the last of the alphabet, and completion of the work. Saturn is the slowest moving planet, while the Moon is fastest.
Virgo is the Virgin, the sign of work to improve, and the month of harvest.
Aleph and Beth both have strong feminine influences, Venus for The Fool, and Virgin for the Universe.

Alchemy of The Universe
Nigredo or Blackness is the key alchemical process of depression needed at the beginning of the process.
The alchemical stage that this Key represents is Coagulation. This occurs when all parts of the experiment are reunited and are brought back together as a solid or thicker substance when the liquid has evapo- rated. Applied to this Key we find that the formation of the figure is the substance in question, with the four Kerubics as the fixed aspect of the experiment. This can then be applied to the final stage of the Great Work bringing the resulting form into a solid, completed and exalted substance if done by heat, or a liquid if by cold. It is the Philosophers Stone, or Elixir of Life.
