Sephiroth: The figure comprised of ten circles and 22 lines , which is the primary glyph or mandala of the Qabalah or Kabalah. In western culture it is called The Tree Of Life.
The Tree Of Life illustrates, symbolically, a process of manifestation, or FORCE precipitating into FORM. Force in organization undergoes an increase in complexity and density on descending the Tree.
The circles are called Sephiroth or Major Paths of Wisdom, and represent established forms of existence (form concepts). The lines are called the Minor Paths of Wisdom and represent established forms of consciousness (force concepts).
