THOTH DECK TAROT: Kether-The Crown and the four Aces

Kether, is ....and that is about all that can be realized. It is the Breath of all that is not. It is the Dark Fire/Dark Energy that is unlimited and unseen yet is the Source of Energy from the Infinite unmanifest. It is the Pusher of all the Universe, a Motion within all Movement. It is the All Seeing, observer, who only observes.  All that is comes from there, all that is returns to there. Only to cycle again. Kether is unexplainable, and in the Ace of Swords, Kether is depicted as the Crown, the Primary symbol of Kether, The other symbols attributed to Kether are the Point, and the Swastika. Thus Kether is often displayed as a white circle with a dark point in the center.
As with all the Sephiroth, Kether must be approached intellectually just to form a intuitive concept of the Source. For instance, we say that Kether is the point and as a symbol that is true, but the Point in not Kether. Just as God built us in It's own image, is true, but the Image is not God.
We are establishing some principles with symbols  The first principle symbol is the crown. We may think because of our anthropomorphic perspective that this Force of Motion lies somewhere in our head, as a spacial as yet unawakened part of our brain, However, this is not the case.
The Crown represents the Holy Guiding Spirit , the crowning glory that we all aspire to even though it is a Force our brain is subordinate to. Because of George Lucas and his marvelous creation of modern myth,  know as the Star Wars series of movies and books; The Force has been described as the personal Aspiration of all Jedi. Which seems to be a word cross of Magi and Djinn The ancient Egyptians called the Three Magi, the Three Stars in Orion's belt that pointed to Osiris's star Sothis (Sirius) , which "rose in the East". These belt stars were still called the Magi in the middle ages( See The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets- by Barbara G. Walker..page 565) . The Word Djinn is Arabian, and originally refereed to Ancestor souls Now this is all very interesting and we have a new word for Ancestor Souls whose power comes from the Three Sephiroth that make the Supernal Triangle, with Kether as the Crown, i.e.The Force. Again Myth is a story about a Truth.
All fun aside, Kether is the Crown from which all creation springs...as is observation in our mundane world. Observation, begins creation. Thus the Point. The Point is complete unto itself with neither dimensions nor external definition. This would be called a "Singularity" in Quantum Physics. The Seed from which the Universe has grown.  The Big Bang, the outward expression of this Seed that has been caused by a Force called Will, are shown as the Sephiroth on the Qabalistic Tree of Life. Each Sephira, is a crystallization of the latent aspects of Kether
The Qabalistic God name of Kether is "I Will Be" or Eheieh, likened to the sound of breath. Because all Work begins and ends with Kether, all ritualistic, or meditative work  must begin with the invocation of the Highest. This idea alone, causes subtle changes and activity on the Inner Planes. The Unconscious guides and directs us toward our Higher Self when we begin to imagine the "Light above".
To the Qabalist, Consciousness guides, motivates, transforms and even translates the Energy of the Divine Unconscious but does not create that energy, nor can it destroy it. Again Imagination is the Womb, but Kether is before Imagination. The "Will to be" ( us), is not the same as "I Will Be", for one is individual and idealize, while the latter is without idea...the ideas of being came latter in the conception of Time, as another latent aspect of Kether. The Will becomes three crystallized aspects. The  I Will Be. becomes Will to Force and Will to Form, then Will to be. 
The Number One is attributed to Kether, as 1 is the seed of all numbers, by simple addition. 1+1=2 and 2+1=3, etc. All seeming very simple until we begin to meditate on simple numbers and simple geometry. The symbol 1 could be pure 1 which is indivisible, so what do we really know? Symbols such as numbers, are themselves not what they represent. Thus Kether is .......but we really don't know What it is.

However, we do know that Kether is not static, for the "First Swirlings" of manifestation are in Assiah , the Qabalistic Material World. That is why the symbol of the Swirling Swastika, which rotates around a point, is another symbol for Kether. It seemed the Nazi's had high ideas for their perversions and have taken a ancient symbol for the "First Swirlings" that cause manifestation and as in all propaganda, changed the meaning of the symbol to suit their vision of self importance but that doesn't change the original meaning of the symbol.
"As above, so Below" , in essence states that the Sephira of Malkuth, the Physical  world, is equally as Holy as the Source. God and its Images, are undivided and inseparable. Our concepts of separation are just basically denial of our wholeness and errant belief that separateness makes us special.  Much like the City Person who insists that farmers are "red neck" hicks, a form of lower life than themselves; even though their whole life is dependent on the good work of the Farmer. Such people are indeed in denial. Much like a parasite, thinking it is more important than the host; such is believing that we are separate from each other. In truth, the City man depends on the Rural man and vise verse, It is indeed time to expand our perspectives and "above all things, know thyself".
finally, we must come to understand that Kether as Source of All  is a quality unknown to us, but which we can symbolize to some extent. Thus when an Ace appears in a reading, it implies great power that is beyond our perceptions. The Essence of a Thing, the idea of seed.
