Kabbalah, Tsimtsum and Esoteric Eyes in Art and Movies
Kabballa and Hasidic Judaism are so closely aligned that you can make a case that one is concealed and one revealed but they are just twins on different parts. The esoteric and open parts of Jewish mysticism are hidden in overcomplicated exposition but the basic concepts aren’t as prohibitive when one digs them out of this thicket of mystery.
Tzimtzum, the renaissance codec and fruity faces
A topic that fascinates many is the strange consistencies within Biblical art that seem to make little sense. Most common but probably noticed least are the eyes in the background watching all that transpires via the methods used overtly by Hyronimous Bosch and Giuseppe Arcimboldo but used more subtly in renaissance Biblical art. These subiminal images appear in everything from Masonic boards to paintings of Noahs Arc. This is no great secret at this point and whether from Dan Browns Da Vinci hints or just observation, it’s revealed but the meaning is still very much concealed. The florentine codecs are intentionally complex and strange so as to keep the true meaning buried within red herring and complexity.
Tsimtsum: The Revel and conceal
One very dense topic within Hasidic Judaism is “Tzimtzum/Tsimtsum” which is only quickly explained as something revealed and then concealed. Another phrase used is “Presence Through Absence”. Allowing the Ein Soph (Gods eternal light that cannot be comprehended by man) to conflate and then take presence quietly by way of symbolic presence is the eventual shorthanded explanation you get to and while it’s buried under over explained metaphors for the most part, it is actually pretty complex.
Cosmic Enochian Kabballa astral projection remote viewing
It’s also speculated that astral projection by Qaballists utilises objects that appear facelike as an almost adoptive set of eyes. The information on this is as sparse as concrete explanations of the Kabballist texts like the Zohar.
Below is a quote from http://www.myjewishlearning.com. Note the subtle hints towards, eyes, nose and mouth and the anthropomorphic face.
Following this, a third element, a ray from God’s hidden essence (Ein Sof) entered the empty space and acted upon the existing mixture of reshimu and Din. This illuminating ray serves as a permanent link between Ein Sof and the empty space. The form of the divine produced by this first ray of light is termed the “Primordial Man” (Adam Qadmon). The latter is described with vivid anthropomorphic detail.
The lights shining from Adam Qadmon‘s “ears,” “nose,” and “mouth” constituted a collective or perfectly unified structure. But the light issuing from the “eyes” emanated in a different manner. They were atomized or separated into different sefirot so as to require their containment in special vessels or qelim.
The esoteric teaching of Hasidic Judaism points towards the presence of God or G-d as they put it, through hidden anthropomorphic faces.
Owl pictures, baroque swirls making up the horns of the ram and other subliminal images of eyes are certainly very common within the type of material you might suspect such things would appear. Below are examples from a wide range of sources that are possibly occult, tarot or Tsimtsum.
A Ram Hidden in Thicket
Reading the Old Testament using the esoteric teachings of Judaism and many stories of the patriarchs are thrown into a different light. These truths are hard earned but make a great deal of sense when considered that Jesus Christ came and took aim at one set of people. The Jews and their Pharisees.
While these aren’t particularly easy truths and many Christians are likely to recoil touting “Gods chosen people” and pointing the very truth of Jesus, I say that they simply amplify what he did. He came as one of them and ended the line that had become poisoned over and over by worshiping brass snakes, Baal or Moloch and indulged widespread ritual sacrificing of children on many separate occasions.
The Ram in Thicket and the doctrine of angels has been abused and misused by many different groups and even today new age tarot, a coded version of cryptic Judaism and Kabbala misuse this doctrine.
