1:13 Five: three Autiot among the simples. Sealed (the) height (or apex). Three chosen. Solidified them with his great Name: Yod-Hay-Waw. And sealed with six extremities. Turned towards the upper, sealed it with Yod-Hay-Waw. Six: sealed the lower, turned towards the underneath and sealed it with Yod-Waw-Hay. Seven: sealed the East, turned towards his (own) face and sealed it with Hay-Yod-Waw. Eight: sealed the West, turned behind it and sealed it with Hay-Waw-Yod. Nine: sealed the South and turned to his right and sealed it with Waw-Yod-Hay. Ten: sealed the North, turned to his left and sealed it with Waw-Hay-Yod.
The nature and grouping of the directions shows that their natural representation is the Cube.
The first four Sephirot
(the non-spacial directions) are the center and axes of the Cube of Space;
the last six (the extremities) are the
spatial directions and the
faces of the Cube, and the last
six Sephirot of the Tree, a fact that seems sadly lost.
Directions in the Cube
Without an orienting geometry in 3-D space, the directions fall apart and are strewn around the Tree.
Among the critical losses (aside from semantic integrity) are the nature of the fifth Sephira as a hinge between
Adam Qadmon's inner and existential space, the rooting of the North and left in the 10th Sephira,
the location of the psyche's kernel, and
the exile of the Shekinah.
