Path 32-bis

From Encyclopedia Thelemica
Jump to: navigation, search

In the Qabalah, the 22 Paths (named after the letters of the Hebrew alphabet) connect the ten Sephiroth on the "Tree of Life." The Path of Tau—the 22nd path joining Yesod and Malkuth—is bisected, and the second half (or alternate) is numbered 32-bis on the Key Scale.

The 22 paths are: 11 Aleph, 12 Beth, 13 Gimel, 14 Daleth, 15 Hé, 16 Vau, 17 Zain, 18 Cheth, 19 Teth, 20 Yod, 21 Kaph, 22 Lamed, 23 Mem, 24 Nun, 25 Samekh, 26 Ayin, 27 Pé, 28 Tzaddi, 29 Qoph, 30 Resh, 31 Shin, 32 Tau, 32-bis, 31-bis
