| Canaan |
| Gematria: 190/840
Canaan (188.8.131.520) is the place (20) full of existential life (50) where all the uncertainties,
all the creations and dissolutions, all the discoveries, inventions, buildings and shattering disruptions
of structures must perforce happen (70 and 700). It is in the midst of that turmoil that the human seed
can and must evolve and grow. It must never allow itself to rest because if it is not active it regresses.
The symbol Canaan is over the whole planet in every conflict, in every tragic error as in every
beautiful achievement. In it, mankind must come to understand its cosmic significance.
Suares, Ciper of Genesis p.166
God commanded Abraham to leave Ur of the Chaldees, the Light of the Magicians, and to go
into Canaan, the land of space-time and duality, and to conquer it by unifying the opposites.
Canaan is the environment of
Israel: no fixed adaptation (the stateless state)
in the land of maximum developmental challenge.
Kaf/20 is the container (place, land) (full) of Noun/50, existential life, in a particular state: Ayn/70-Noun/700:
all the possible possibilities of Ayn/70 opening into the Cosmic Indetermination of Noun/700. There is no
stability possible in an environment of intense uncertainty (70-700) and the seed of Elohim is not permitted
to settle down in any fixed adaptation.
The theme of this vast epic poem is the implanting of the human seed, of which the eponymic ancenstor
is Sem, in the mythical land of Canaan. When YHWH became, through Moses, a tribal deity and the Hebrews forgot the
original Revelation, they mistook Canaan for an actual country and waged ruthless wars to conquer it. This is one of the
countless examples of the perils inherent in local-temporal interpreation of Scriptures that are universal and timeless
in their original import.
