  Spiral Nature - Magick - Kabbalah - The Tree of Life
Kabbalah provides a vocabulary for states of consciousness underlying the phenomena, and one of the purposes of these notes is to explain this vocabulary, not by definition, but mostly by metaphor and analogy.
What Kabbalah does suggest (and modern physics most certainly does not!) is that matter and consciousness are the same stuff, and differ only in the degree of structure imposed - matter is consciousness so heavily structured and constrained that its behaviour becomes describable using the regular and simple laws of physics.
The Tree is composed of 10 states or sephiroth (sephiroth plural, sephira singular) and 22 interconnecting paths.

 Qabbalah - Tree of Life - Crystalinks
Kabbalah is an interpretation (exegesis, hermeneutic) key, "soul" of the Torah (Hebrew Bible), or the religious mystical system of Judaism claiming an insight into divine nature.

 Tree of life (Kabbalah) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tree of life is a mystical concept within the Kabbalah of Judaism which is used to understand the nature of God and the manner in which He created the world ex nihilo (out of nothing).
The latter describes the tree of life as being a sort of diagram (although not necessarily a physical one) that has 10 (sometimes 11) Sephirot and 22 (sometimes 24) paths which interconnect the various Sephirot.
The Tree of Life bears many similarities to the Christian Gnostic conception of the Pleroma, emanations from the ineffable and self-originating Divine Parent that offer the best possible means of describing God.

 Byzant Kabbalah - Paths on the Tree of Life
The Tree of Life is formed from 32 paths: ten objective paths known as the sefirot and 22 subjective paths that connect pairs of sefirot together.
There is a natural tendency to view the Tree as a series of discrete objects rather than as the unified, undifferentiated whole it actually is, and the paths allow us to begin the process of reintegrating the Tree by exploring the relationships between pairs of sefirot.
The Tarot and the Kabbalah discusses the relationship between the 78 cards of the Tarot and the Tree of Life, and includes a diagram showing the attributions of the paths.

The Tree encapsulates creation, existence and the return to the divine (or the path to enlightenment) in ten sefirot ("numbers," "emanations" or "spheres;" singular, sefira) and the twenty-two paths through which they interrelate (introduced in our Introduction to the Kabbalah).
The Tree of Life describes the descent of the divine into the manifest world, and methods by which divine union may be attained in this life.
In viewing the Tree as composed of the three pillars, each sefira can be classed as either negative (restrictive, passive and destructive), balancing or positive (expansive, active and constructive) depending upon whether it lies on the pillar of severity, equilibrium (sometimes mildness) or mercy respectively.

 Tree of Life - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is important to note that the sephiroth and the Tree of Knowledge are distinguished (Gen. 2.9) and that prohibition of eating the fruit concerns the latter(Gen. 2.17).
Of the many twigs which flourished when the tree was a mere bush, only two or three, now grown into great branches, yet survive and bear the other branches; so with the species which lived during long-past geological periods, very few have left living and modified descendants.
From the first growth of the tree, many a limb and branch has decayed and dropped off; and these fallen branches of various sizes may represent those whole orders, families, and genera which have now no living representatives, and which are known to us only in a fossil state.
