Studying Qabalah Makes You Smarter.
wpe7.jpg (21231 bytes)

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.)

How does studying qabalah increase intelligence?

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.

The Holographic Tree of Life - each sphere contains all the others.

 

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.

 

The Art Of Memory by Francis Yates
A book and an idea that will revolutionize your understanding of qabalah

THIS IS NICE! Pretty Illustrations, I think you'll enjoy it.

A Tree of Life of a Modern Qabalah
Mostly just something nice to look at...

Book about Magick, Qabalah, Alchemy, and the Elements. Very appropriate for students of Cornelius Agrippa, Aleister Crowley, and Israel Regardie.

I haven't read his book, but the pages are interesting enough to check out.

The Web Of Qabalah
A new site, some original writing, I enjoyed it, you might too. "...an educational and referrence resource for anyone with an interest in Qabalah and / or related subjects such as meditation or ritual magick. This site aims to be of use to both beginners with no previous knowledge of Qabalah and experienced and advanced practitioner alike."
