"In this volume are presented the basic symbol systems of Western Occultism culminating in the one comprehensive system of the Tree of Life in which all are related into a single whole. Planets and Zodiacal Signs, Material, Planet and Animal Kingdoms, Calendar, Mathematics and man-designed Cities and Temples - all are used as vehicles for the projection of human concepts of perfection. The Four Elemental Weapons, the Tarot, the Girdle Jewel of Adam Kadmon, and the Twenty-eight Mansions of the Moon become magical tools for the transformation of the magician himself. The Tree of Life is the philosophic and psychological means to the integration and comprehension of all that has been experienced and provides the magical foundation for Man's quantum leap to a higher evolutionary development." - from a blurb on the book.
