Esoterica: Kabbalah, eyes without faces, Kabbalistic astral projecting and the reveal and conceal of Tzimtzum

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.

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.

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.

Oddly enough, The Incomplete Enchanter is a fantasy novel about the linking of two different world, the real world that we know and that of the spirits by way of symbolic logic. So basically exactly the bonkers rumour I was told. What are the chances?

Kabbala and The Brothers Grimm are linked in an almost inseparable manner with the weaving of themes, esoterica and subtle prediction on the level of George Orwells 1984 encoded within nightmarish tales that make Roald Dahl look tame.

Yes, a hidden face. Hidden in what isn’t known though, only that it isn’t standard face materials.

Unknown source of this rather haunting example of the every present eyes. This is less esoteric but certainly uses the hands as a frown. The Disney Snow White image below uses similar methods but goes full concealed within subliminal esotericism.
Snow White Disney Hidden Eyes Tsimtsum Kabballa Esoterism
Snow Whites from Disney contained not only a whole host of owl images but also hidden eyes that acording to the Jewish Hasidic practice of Tsimtsum are revealed and then concealed. This Cabalistic esotericism is very common in almost all orthodox Jewish beliefs but most commonly in Hasidic teachings.

    Interesting post and especially an impressive collection of images! I’m very visual, so enjoyed looking at them.

    As for the text of your article, it suggests and hints at many things but doesn’t really flesh them out. I don’t know much at all about Kabbalah. I gather that is a form of the occult as practiced in certain historical parts of Judaism. I guess every large community of people going to have their own occult subculture that crops up.

    But I wonder whether Kabbalism is truly, necessarily tied to orthodox Jewish documents or doctrine. Saying there is a necessary link kind of strikes me as similar to painting all Christians as snake handlers. Or perhaps more like the charge leveled against Christians that the ceremony of communion involves literal human sacrifice and blood-drinking.

    I have also heard through the grapevine that historically, anti-Semitic movements have been driven by the belief (or have utilized the charge) that all Jews are secretly, deeply involved in the occult. Do you have any posts that make a distinction between Jewish flavors of occultism and mainstream, orthodox, or historical Judaism? And do you, anywhere on your blog, denounce anti-Semitism? I’d kind of like to follow you, but I feel like I need to find out more first.

      Hi Jennifer, I do contend that Kabbala is at its core the spiritualism that guides almost all witchcraft but as far as I can see it’s Hasidic Judaism that’s the esoteric reading of the old scriptures.

      Anti-semitism is awful as is all racism. I have a huge amount of respect for the Jewish people and the battle they fight. What I tend to focus on with this blog is occultism hidden within religion and that tends to be area based. Kabbalah is actually bigger numberwise in New York and Hollywood than with Hasidic Judaism and I cover both Greenwitch Village and Hollywood on the same topic. I have a series on Philippines as I have spent some time there and due to the colonisation their folklore and pagan practices is synchronised with Christianity. Similarly alot of African nations which I intend to do some articles on soon.

      I tend not to pick moral positions and just throw out the info out there. As the blog has developed I have tried to steer away from politicising it though. Pretty much every culture and country has hidden ancient esotericism floating about just below the surface.

      I know what you mean about fleshing out a centralised point with the info but on some topics it’s impossible. You have info that’s vague can be drawn together for truths but they are large and in many ways hard to literalise. If I could, I would 🙂

      Thanks for taking the time to read and I appreciate the concern.

    Thanks, that is what I needed to hear.

    It’s interesting that you have spent some time in the Philippines. I spent some time in Indonesia and I recognized some of the images in this post as similar to art that I’ve seen in Bali.
