Masonic rituals are now well enough known to the Public that we may enter into their symbolism without further explanation. 6 Footnote missing footnote in original - PV.

the Archetypal Man, the original Androgyne charged with protecting and cultivating the mythical "garden" of Eden, in place of the Elohim...

The acacia, with an easy play of words (phonetic Kabbalah) which can be done in Hebrew or Sanskrit, reveals that it represents the eternal Present, that which is everywhere at once...

Its branches possess 28 to 30 leaves, the number of the lunar cycle regulating our World.

Its flowers, in the East, open and close with the Day (See Dupuis: "Origin of Cults").

The consequence of this double death (which was really only one), is that the masonic Temple, image and microcosm of the universe, is thus plunged into obscurity, Darkness reigns, the Blazing Star is extinguished between the two Columns of the West, as is the Sun every evening...

Then comes the Recipient, (the Man of Desire...), who accepts his death, just as his master, the Architect Hiram, did. He thus relives, in microcosm, the drama lived by Hiram, the Macrocosm. By means of the knowledge of the Initiates (the Masters of the Lodge), the Recipient penetrates the Kingdom of the Dead, the shadowy "Middle Chamber"; he is incorporated into Hiram, and like Orpheus bringing Eurydice out of Hell, reanimates the dead Master by means of his own flesh, and serves as his psychic vehicle. So Hiram is reborn, and lives again in all Initiates, who carry him within them and integrate with him there...

Then, as the ultimate consequence of the resurrection of the Master Architect, the Shadows disappear, the heavy black drapes, symbols of the palpable, exterior Darkness, are erased, glorious Light gushes in from the shining Holy of Holies, flooding the Temple of the World...

And in the east, the Blazing Star shines anew, as does the Sun each morning...

Profanes and materialist or ignorant masons only see in this splendid symbolism the daily or yearly rebirth of the Day Star, father of life, and the triumph of education over ignorance!

Is it not rather a complete summary of the aforesaid Doctrine of Reintegration, attributed to Martinez of Pasqually, who was in reality only its popularizer?

Absolutely! And then an inevitable conclusion presents itself to the mind.

Adam (the Jack-of-all-Trades of the Elohim), Atem or Atoum (the Egyptian Demiurge), Helios (the Greek demiurge, driver of the World, the "Protector of Initiates" according to the Orphics), Hiram, (the Master of the Works of the Celestial Temple), in a word the Grand Architect of the Universe, and the metaphysical entity, the enduring principle of intellectual Knowledge and of Occult Light, is but one and the same person...

Thus the ultimate identity of Lucifer as conceived by Catholicism and of Adam Kadmon of the Hebrew Kabbalah are one!

This point has moreover already been regularly put forward by the Kabbalist Occultists61.

The singular importance of this conclusion will be all the more particularly appreciated if one studies certain chapters of the Zohar, and various Kabbalistic authors, who describe the breaking of the "vessels", the kings of Edom, etc. and in general, on the origins of Evil and its repercussions on the Natura Naturanda.

We are would be incomplete if we omitted to mention the common character of the representations of Baphomet, known as the regular hermetic Androgyne (male bearded face, horned, female chest, erect phallus) and the XVth Major Arcana of the Tarot of Marseilles, called "The Devif', which present us with an equivalent image.

On the subject of Baphomet, Eliphas Levi gave us this French meaning of the same name, Kabbalised in Latin: "The Father of the Temple, Universal Peace for Men"...(Templi Omnium, etc. ..).

The Father of the Temple can equally be called Hiram, Adam Kadmon, the Demiurge, etc... It is unavoidably the Grand Architect!

The pathology of the poet says that the undevout astronomer is mad the pathology of the very plain man says that the genius is mad and between these extremes, which stand for ten thousand analogous excesses, the sovereign reason takes the part of a moderator and does what it can. I do not think that there is a pathology of the occult dedications, but about their extravagances no one can question, and it is not less difficult than thankless to act as a moderator regarding them.
