8 carry 1
I felt like collating the Chariot related imagery and thoughts and thus born from depths of the electronic maelstrom - this.
The Chariot - a tarot card , given to , or corresponding with the Hebrew letter Ch - 8. Perhaps showing my lack of mystic acumen, I don't see how it can be the 7th card. Why the Tarot cards should fiddle around with 0=1, 1=2, 3=4, criss-crossing the Hebrew and Latin numerals, I have no idea. Personally I think AC was taking the Mick-Key.
Hebrew 'letters' have to be spelt in full, and the full form of Ch = ChYTh , which sounds somewhat like hHAyt, a hardish H, slightly gutteral, but not Kh, even though the English transliteration seems to indicate that.
ChYTh = 418 = ABRAHADABRA - the word of the AEON, accorded to us by the eminent mountaineer , spiritual and mundane, Aleister Crowley. The word translates from the Hebrew as 'fence, enclosure' which seems to go well with its corresponding astrological symbol - CANCER - The Crab. With different diacritic marks and grammar the word seems to mean ' BEAST' or 'LIVING THING' as in Genesis Chapter 1, verses 24&25.
Above a young and necessarily innocent Charioteer proffers a Cosmic Cube. Her face expressionless like the vizored chap in the BOOK of THOTH
What of the Chariot - a vessel, a carrier, from the Latin CARRUS. The word weedled its way in or out of Breton , and the Chariot-maker became known as the CARPENTER thus alluding to the Charioteer as some kinda Jeesus.
I include many forms of transport within the Chariot motif - A Ferry , Taxi, Airship, anything that carries. Latin 'ferre' means to carry, bear and this includes the Light-Bringer -LUCIFER, The Christ-bearer -CHRISTOPHER, Water-bearer - AQUIFER, Cone -bearer - CONIFER as well a s the family of words like INFER, REFER, CONFER etc. rounding with FERTILITY carried by our imaginations.
