The Sacred Decad
These nine divisions of the Magnum Opus of Alchemical Law meet in Ophiuchus and are three (3) times three (3), plus the Universal Prima Materia (Azoth) life force which equal ten (10), the sacred decad of Pythagoras. The Hebrew Tetragrammaton (YHWH-4) and ten spheres of emanation in the Tree of Life are based on the Sacred Decad or Tetractys. This is a triangular figure consisting of ten points arranged in four rows. As a mystical symbol, this was very important to the secret worship of the Pythagoreans which became the basis of many mystical teachings. Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism have claimed to have evolved out of the Pythagorean Brotherhood. Ten is the all-inclusive structure of the four dimensional Universe, which also represents maintaining the domination and order contained within the structure. Thus, ten also represents the “Matrix” of that construct which hypnotizes and keeps one locked in the illusion of the third dimensional world.
The Sacred Decad (10) or Tetractys symbolize the Four Living Creatures and the elements that made them through the Prima Materia; fire, air, water, and earth. This also intersects into the four quadrants of cardinal directions and represents the divine calculus of the Universe. The Sacred Decad geometry is held within the Ophiuchus constellation transmission (13=4) which represent the organization of dimension and space in the Cosmos:
• the first row represents zero-dimensions (a point)
• the second row represents one-dimension (a line of two points)
• the third row represents two-dimensions (a plane defined by a triangle of three points)
• the fourth row represents three-dimensions (a tetrahedron defined by four points)
Four as the Universal Prototype
According to the Pythagorean symbolism in the Tetrad, Four is considered the root of all things and the source of all nature. It is the number of numbers because The Sacred Decad or 10, includes 1, 2, 3 and 4, because it is a symbol of the four of the first four numbers. The tetrad connects them throughout all numbers, elements, and temporary structures which manifest as recurrent cycles in time. A Master Builder or Mason is quantified by the number 22, which when broken down aligns back to the structure of Four. The Master Builder sees the archetype, and brings it down to earth in some material form. The Universal Prototype in the Law of Structure related to the Four is revealing its truth to us now. That which has been created with falsified archetypes or with deception is being destroyed. While that which holds the sacred and perfect number of the Universal Law will remain and reveal its truth. To consider the importance of the Four as the Universal Prototype in the Law of Structure, there are many aspects in creation:
There are compositions known as The Sacred Decad, which have been confirmed in several literary catalogues of tablets dating back to ancient Sumeria-Egypt. Sumerian artifacts are the basis of all written history believed to have been established and is the earliest known record of developed human civilization. The Decad contains the narrative of the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh, which has influenced modern literature, religions and culture. All themes from the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh are found in later biblical text stemming from the time of the Annunaki invasion.
