Makes You Smarter.
Here's an interesting effect worthy of further study. Studying "Qabalah" increases intellegence. (That is, I am claiming that studying qabalah appears to have an effect which I am calling increased intelligence, and I am inviting you to consider this possibility, and it's implications.)
Studying "Qabalah", particularly via certain mental exercises, has, in my experience, led to a marked increase in middle range and long term memory.
It also increases or enables new modes of subjective representation-- visual thinking, symbolic or representational thinking, multiple perspective thinking.
There is also an increase in the subjective experience of the volume of thought process, experienced for example as the capacity to be thinking about several things at once.
Aside from these "intellectual" benefits, there's a strong emotional benefit, in the form of a sense of well-being and/or understanding. I think that modern culture is particularly lacking in coherent, user-friendly and "sensible" or "common sense" world-pictures; that is, it is lacking in human-scale cosmologies. The qabalah, or more specifically the "Tree of Life" diagram, offers just such a human scale cosmology, which, despite it's limitations, works.

|A note circa 2004: These pages on qabalah have not been completed as well as they should have been, I always intended to improve them but you know how things go. Look at them as rough notes for a larger piece.|
