Please forgive me for taking so long to reply.

The graph was not meant to suggest that the Matrix and Experience are under the veil; rather, it was meant to suggest that they are on the other side of the veil. The reason I put the Potentiator and Catalyst above rather than below is because the unconscious mind is the conduit to the spirit complex, which I think of as being "above". So I think of the unconscious mind as "above" the conscious mind---despite the tree metaphor.

RE: An Archetype Workbook
Thank You Joseph for sharing your Work / for your Teachings. You've Helped me Greatly in the area of the Mind.

Regarding The Great Way of  the Spirit. Spirit contain All. That includes both male and female principles. The division You've made (page 44, last article):

Quote:The conscious portion of the spirit moves carefully into its experiences, always
scrutinizing itself to be sure that the influence that guides it is pure. Normally this
conscious portion must grope in the moonlight, but sometimes its field of vision is
expanded in a flash of light, potent but temporary. The unconscious spirit is an
influence felt but not seen. Sometimes it is felt as a demon, whether inner or outer,
and other times it is felt as a small guiding light. The two depend upon each other. The
conscious spirit has no guidance without the unconscious; the unconscious spirit has
no clarity or discipline without the conscious.

- may explain how this Great Way may contain both principles. It's impossible when You think of it in rigid terms. Depending on Ones state of Self / advancement / readiness (even unconscious) to go further than current point of Self. Experience of each Arcanum may vary in relation to Ones Progress / Work already done / processed.
At the beginning Matrix of the Spirit is dark/unknown and frightening/alien state / unconscious / female principle. Gradually with inner progress it brightens and become more available as foundation for further work / progress / become more conscious / male principle. Both principles are at constant play on this Great Way and their relations depends on Mind/Body configuration / progress / readiness to process / include Spirit Catalyst / Experience into their Cycles (to allow to consciously influence them). It doesn't mean that "longer Ones walking" this Path the more Male principle and less Female principle is within each Arcanum / Step. Rather their Balance and Union is emphasized / expressed in different way. I think that's exactly what depicts Great Way of the Spirit - perfect harmony of Female/Male principle that is a Foundation of the World / Seasons / Creation / Unity.
All above is of course only my opinion.

I envy You the ability to translate such profound concepts into daily experience with pinpointing the subtleties of different aspects of everyday life and attitudes People have / share. Great Way Graph (page 59) is Very interesting. I understand it as depicting Steps on the Great Ways made by completing Greater Cycles of each Way (via Transformation facilitated by educated/actualized Significator[-Self] via Lesser Cycles).

I wonder if You ever consider that when You work so closely with Concepts offered by RA and with such Purity as presented by your approach, that RA may literally "be with You"? I think there might be some wiggling in RA's Complex when You posted this ;-) Your Thoughts/Words/Work Helped at least one person here - me. Thank You once again.

Here is a link:

I can tell quite a bit of effort went into the project.

What has helped me the most in studying the images is drawing interconnections while not wholly insisting on congruent correspondence.

For example, if you think of the mind cycle of as a cube (6 faces) and move towards a point in space(the great way), a tesseract ( a cube within a cube) can represent the motion towards that point with the second cube being the body cycle. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesseract#/media/File:8-cell.gif)
Or each card of a type (i.e. matrix of body, mind and spirit) and their synesthesia being a tetrahedron.


I would have like to read what you thought about across-card symbols (bird, spheres, rod, Spinx, wings, grapes, etc)

My study with the cards these days is visual using symbols whose resonance can't quite be perfectly molded into words. I would really have liked to see how you synthesized perceptions of the cards with more drawings.

I would have been interested if there was more discussion of the kabbalistic phases of light and the dynamism of the first four card types.

The Tarot set in Ra contact used "Egyptian costumes and systems of mythology" in the images. I think that elements can be distracting because they are rather foreign to us. Maybe other Tarot set or Tree of Life would be a better choice.

I don't understand why this is an important point. Consistency is the most important factor for grasping the relationships. Choosing a set (and/or method) and consistently working with it is the only way to attain. It seems to me you are suggesting from a position without having been immersed in a set.

Being overly focused on the Egyptian culture was mentioned in the questioning as not being important as the "heart of the image".

Kabbalah has an equally as great, but different, methodology. Ra did suggest exploring Tarot, Kabbalah, and Astrology as seeking the touchstone .

I've replaced the link in the OP. I'm sorry I took so long fixing that.

Here it is again: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pq9pjw8qe25ecow/An%20Archetype%20Workbook.pdf?dl=0

Just FYI, I'm in the middle of a thorough edit of this work. I'm hoping the new version will prove to be both a deeper exploration of the archetypes and a more helpful aid to students of Ra.
