Aut, Aleph-Waw-Tav, in idiomatic Hebrew is "letter" or "sign." With this "sign" we are immediately at the heart of the non-arbitrary and semantically-accurate language of structure and energy embodied in the true Qabala. Aleph, the Ineffable, is reflected in and by its counterpart and perfect mirror, Tav, cosmic resistance. The "signifier" of the "sign" projects a two-fold energy in oppostion and interpenetration, connecting consciousness to its objects at every level of structuration (the signified).

The structural meaning of "letter" describes a connection, or interpenetration, or union (Waw) of Aleph and Tav: the beginning and end, the explosive and compressive, the spiritual and the material, consciousness and its objects. Further, these 22 component letters (aut=sign in Hebrew), span the range of possible structuration and signification and constitute a complete specification for a universal formative language.

The Revelation of Moses, Aleph-Hay-Yod-Hay, indicates that Aleph and Yod are alive. In short, the Autiot express the following equation:

400 6 1
400 6 10

That is to say, the Autiot are the active agents fertilising the Tav by Aleph and by Yod.

This multiple and single intermediary messenger, Autiot Yassod, entering the world of Aleph and Yod, seems much more like Jacob's ladder than the angels who are supposed to go up and down it: the coming and going movement is the making of the ladder's substance. It is an internal process.

        Suares, Sepher Yetsira (Yetzirah), p.34

The Autiot, a feminine plural energy, is characterized by a masculine singular quality, Yassod. Male and female, multiple and singular messengers of the Word. Idiomatically in Hebrew, when aut is plural, the ending is spelled yod-waw-tav, instead of waw-tav like the other feminine plurals. Yassod: Yod-Sammekh-Waw-Dallet,, existence - (male) fertility - (female) fertility - (archetype) resistance, a fertile massing of elements into one (the angelic cohort ascending and descending).

The three primary double equations of the Sepher Yetsira, Nativot-Playliot, Sepherot-Belimah and Autiot-Yassod, must all be understood as structural equations for dual energies in the process of entering and creating space-time. Their "translation" as paths, spheres and letters is completely inadequate.

The gematria of Autiot-Yassod, 903, is ten less than Bereshyt, 913. Creation is the alphabet in existence (Yod/10). The only occurance of gematria 903 in Bereshyt/Genesis occurs deep within YHWH's sililoquy in Genesis 4:14 -- Behold, thou hast driven me out (Ghimel-Sheen-Raysh-Tav) this day from the face of the earth. Sheen-Raysh-Tav, sherat, is a network.

When YHWY wished to confer immortality on Cain (Quayn, Qof-Yod-Noun) he names him with an Aut (Genesis, Book One). If one is satisfied by reading that he put a "sign" on him, one fails to know what it means. Such is this unfortunate way of reading the Bible, for, in fact, he confers Aleph-Waw-Tav on him; the double-flowing energy of life. In other words he defined Cain as mankind's creative genius, always triumphant whenever attempts to extinguish it are made.

        Suares, Sepher Yetsira (Yetzirah), p.32

Aut, Aleph-Waw-Tav, appears 6 times in Genesis, each time at a momentous event.

First, when Elohim creates the lights in the firmament to divide day from night:

Genesis 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years

when YHWH marks Qaheen with the Aut:

Genesis 4:15 And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him

three times in converation with Noah:

Genesis 9:12-13 This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

Genesis 9:17 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

and once to Abraham:

Gen 17:11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.

It should not be necessary to point out that the only "negative" use is in relationship to Cain.
