Topic: The Fool (Zero)


  
  THE FOOL: BOUNCING BETWIXT THE BINARIES
The Fool represents Zero, the Negative around the Tree of Life that is the source of all things and the genesis of all numbers: the Qabalistic Zero, the equation of the Universe, the initial and final balance of opposites.
Zero is the symbol of the Fool, in which all 9 numbers are inherent as a quality of Zero.
Upon the spiraling whorls of Light are many other attributions of the Fool: the vulture of Ma’at; the dove of Venus (Isis, Mary); the sacred ivy of his devotees; the butterfly of the many-colored Air; and the wingéd globe of splendid Saturn with twin serpents, echoed by the twin infants embracing the middle spiral.

fool appears in a variety of guises from the goitered idiot with feathers in his hair to the homeless man with bells to warn of his approach.
Giotto illustrated one in the fresco of Foolishness, one of the seven vices illustrated in the Arena Chapel in Padua (1306) (4).
So although the homeless Fool of the streets would likely have been the first impression to strike the mind of the ordinary card-player, it is also reasonable to assume that the religious image was sufficiently familiar to have arisen as well.

The Fool represents carefree living, not in such a way that it is negative necessarily, but in the sense that the Fool doesn't worry about the trivialities of life.

His card is numbered zero, and among scholars of the tarot there is constant debate whether he is the beginning of the story, or should appear in the middle, or at the end.

 The Fool
In his Manual of Cartomancy[?], Grand Orient[?] has a curious suggestion of the office of Mystic Fool, as apart of his process in higher divination; but it might call for more than ordinary gifts to put it into operation.
We shall see how the card fares according to the common arts of fortune-telling, and it will be an example, to those who can discern, of the fact, otherwise so evident, that the Trumps Major[?] had no place originally in the arts of psychic gambling, when cards are used as the counters and pretexts.
The conventional explanations say that the Fool signifies the flesh, the sensitive life, and by a peculiar satire its subsidiary name was at one time the alchemist, as depicting folly at the most insensate stage.

 The Fool as Zero
From the Zero first comes the negative, (which could be a point or dot), and then the line extended, which is the Positive.
Zero is Nothing, and the O is AYN, 70, which is equated with Capricorn in the Sepher Yetsirah, however AYN means 'Nothing, Negative', and the Devil card has never been considered as the first Atu.

 Educrap | Adventures In Zero Tolerance
Ignoring the fact that all the students named granted the student fishwrap interviews and signed off on the use of their names, Smith Middle School's assistant principal went non-clinically bonkers and impounded all copies of the student fishwrap because naming names - with or without the namee's permission - is a no-no at Smith.

 Fool's Journey
In the Tarot, the Fool is typically shown without a care in the world, carrying a knapsack of his worldly belongings, in the process of stepping off a cliff (unaware of the divine protection prepped to save him), and accompanied by a small, white dog (representing the Fool’s Higher Self).
When the Fool begins his or her Journey, it is the encounters of experiences represented by the Major Arcana trumps, the cards of the Tarot that matter.
This latter Fool -- the one represented by the “22” -- is indicative of having all of the attributes of the Fool as before (oblivious to life’s travails, without a care in the world, and under divine protection).

 The Way of the Fool - The Zelator by Laura Knight-Jadczyk
The Way of the Fool is, apparently, an initiatory path of those who set out on their own and, from time to time, encounter a teacher who they interact with for a period, and then move on.
That's why the Fool is prepared to go through life naked to the world, knowing that the lower is nothing more than a reflection of the higher....
And if you choose the Way of the Fool, do not fear appearing to be a Fool in the eyes of the world, for you do not stray too far from the ancient road, in the eyes of God, you will always remain the beloved......

 The Fool and the Pole Star
There is suggestive evidence of the influence of Papus in Crowley's commentaries on the Fool card, the Ace of Disks and the Princess of Disks in particular.
There is another interesting idea that connects the Fool card to the Ace of Disks and the Two of Disks - Crowley draws attention to the colour green - the Green Man of Spring, the green of Isis for the Ace of Disks, and the green snake in the 2 of Disks.
The implication here is that even if PCS knew about these ideas, Waite endeavoured to make sure she never incorporated them into her tarot artwork, nor that this was the direction his studies was taking him.
