Crowley illustrated this card on the basis of 3, Binah's number, showing 3 wheels at 3 points in the pyramid. This grouping of Three, is shown in Alchemy as Mercury, Sulfur, and Salt; or in Qabalah as the maternal letters Shin (Fire) Mem (Water) and Aleph (Air) and in geometry as a Plane.
If you are interested in Hindu system of Guna, the three are Sattva, Rajas and Tamas.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about the Indian philosophical concept "Guna". For other uses, see Guna (disambiguation). Guṇa (Sanskrit: गुण) depending on the context means 'string, thread or strand', or 'virtue, merit, excellence', or 'quality, peculiarity, attribute, property'. The concept originated in Samkhya philosophy, but now a key concept in various schools of Hindu philosophy.
There are three guṇas, according to this worldview, that have always been and continue to be present in all things and beings in the world. These three gunas are called: sattva (goodness, constructive, harmonious), rajas (passion, active, confused), and tamas (darkness, destructive, chaotic). All of these three gunas are present in everyone and everything, it is the proportion that is different, according to Hindu worldview. The interplay of these gunas defines the character of someone or something, of nature and determines the progress of life.In some contexts, it may mean 'a subdivision, species, kind, quality', or an operational principle or tendency of something or someone. In human behavior studies, Guna means personality, innate nature and psychological attributes of an individual.There is no single word English language translation for the concept guna. The usual, but approximate translation is "quality".]
The Pyramid seems to be arising out of a Great Sea, that represents Binah the Third Sephira on the Tree of Life. This card also represents the Material establishment of the Universe as determined by its basic form of 3, the Plane. The influence of Mars is shown as the Red-tint.
According to most scholars, the reaction of a non-riding culture to the appearance of a man on horse back, such as early Greek, Mayan etc., produced the artistic rendition of Centaurs; a very much fantasy creation, that has excited the imagination of many writer's throughout history. The fact that such anatomy could never live, was beyond the superstitious, who substituted knowledge to the animal "fear of the unknown". Yet instead of being a personalized pestilence, or disease, Orobas, is a "good guy" who being yet another "great and mighty Prince of Hell" (the 55th one) who was classified by the linear nature of his "binding" by Solomon (Sun of On), seems to cause love amongst enemies, but knows Divine Creative intimately and can divulge any and all information about it.
The inventiveness of the human imagination is astounding and continues to cause awe, but a little knowledge, helps to iron out the fantasies. That is one of the purposes of The Soul of the Solar Logos, and its union with the fear bound survival animal mind. For not only do I, the Spirit learn discrimination, where thought that "lives" is found by sensational connection to a "Grand and Mighty Prince of Earth", the Human body, but also I find out how my Alien Psyche can expand and liberate the Animal Mind of Earth, from self imposed limits: limits imposed by fear and superstition. In reality, the Divinity "within" you, will give you all the knowledge it has, just by "turning inward" and releasing your fear, to the pure faithful reality of, "You built me to be me...so let's Rock!" The Divine Creative is in love with "Rock and Roll" souls!
