Thoth Deck Tarot: 0-THE FOOL

The Thoth Deck Card-The Fool, is the Negative above the Tree of Life, the source of all things. It is the Dark Energy, the Unknowable, the innocent and it is the Vacuum part of Air.
This card is attributed to the Hebrew Letter Aleph, which means Ox, and by its shape represents a plowshare, making the symbol Phallic. Aleph is the first of the Mother letters, Mem and Shim are the others. Making this card a womb as well. These three correspond to all the triads that occur in the Thoth Deck cards, notably, Fire, Air and Water,; Father, Mother, Son (Sun); Sulphur, Salt, Mercury; And the Hindu, Rajas, Sattvas and Tamas.
The Fool, is the Qabalistic zero, which is the equation of the Universe; the initial and final balance of the opposites.
If we assume that the Tarot is of Egyptian origin (Crowley obviously does) then the medieval  name for this card Le Mat (from the Italian, Matto which means mad-man or fool) becomes Maut, the Egyptian Vulture Goddess who was a more sublime modification of Nuit that Isis. Amongst the legends concerning the Vulture, there are two most prominent and they are that the Vulture has a  spiral neck (the Universe according to Einstein, is of Spiral energy----we call this Spirit) and the other, is that the Vulture is supposed to reproduce her species by the intervention of wind. In other words, Air is considered the Father of all Manifested existence. This Fool, (derived from follis, which means wind-bag) is both the Father and Mother in the most abstract of terms. Then there is the legend of  Prometheus who stole fire from his Father Zeus, and gave it to mankind (The Life Force). For his punishment he was chained to a mountain and a Vulture would swoop down every 7 days and eat his liver and somehow this never killed him. The legend goes on and he was latter saved by the Goddess Hathor, but it is important to note, that Fire is Spirit, and Mountain means Earth and Vulture is the Goddess of Reincarnation ( the number seven is the number of the Goddess). So basically, Prometheus (Fire-bearer) was disowned and was made human and had to live and die with mankind. Some might call that theft Foolish, others would call him the Savior. The connection between foolishness and holiness are traditional. In the East the madman is believed to be "possessed", a holy man or prophet. This was also a belief of many Native American nations. In our western culture. so deep is this identity of the fool, that it is buried in our language. "Silly" means empty, i.e. The Vacuum of Air, Zero. And the word is from the German Selig which means, holy or blessed. This describes the Innocence of the Fool. Since He/She is the Whole (Holy) one the fool is also compared to the "Holy Ghost".
In the beginning, there was no separation of male and female (there isn't really one now either) Male is expressive and female is receptive, both aspects are attributed to the Fool and both aspects are in each of us. Thus male is categorized as electric and female as magnetic.
In the Thoth Deck the Fool is illustrated as the "Green Man", the "April Fool", who to the Medieval,  is the Personification of the mysterious phenomena that produces Spring. Any way you look at it, The Great Fool, is a definite doctrine. The Survival mind is always looking for a Savior but Salvation (whatever that may mean) is not  obtained by any reasonable means. Reason is an impasse, a damnation, only divine madness , offers an issue.
The Fool is too deep a card for one small blog----so I shall continue this discussion on the nest blog. This is the formula of the Tetragrammaton.[ Zero = plus 1 plus minus 1.] This is also the formula for male and female. Let me give you a clue, if you manifest a male-polarity form on this side of the Mirror of Light, than your identity on the other-side of the Mirror is Female in polarity. Welcome to the concept of Hermes-Aphrodite...Divine Hermaphrodite!
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!

Virtually all of what you articulate happens to be astonishingly accurate and that makes me ponder why I hadn't looked at this in this light previously. This article truly did switch the light on for me as far as this specific subject goes. Nonetheless at this time there is just one position I am not too cozy with so whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the core theme of your issue, permit me see exactly what the rest of your readers have to say.Very well done.
