Here’s The Deal

What we have called a deck of playing cards is actually a timeless system of knowledge written in a mathematical, symbolic language.

As far back as we can trace, this knowledge was already present. In early human civilizations, this knowledge was inscribed on clay or stone tablets. Later, this language was inked on loose leaves of papyrus. Then, in 14th century Europe, it was printed on the now familiar cardstock.

This system of knowledge forms a conceptual framework that depicts the mathematical structure of our reality.

The basic math:

  • The deck has 52 cards, and our year has 52 weeks.
  • The deck has 4 suits, and our year has 4 seasons.
  • Each suit has 13 cards; each season has 13 weeks.
  • Add the numerical values together for each suit: The Ace is worth 1, the Jack, Queen, and King are each worth 11, 12, and 13 respectively, and we have:

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11 + 12 + 13 = 91

  • And there are 91 days in each season.
  • Combine the numerical values of all 4 suits and we have

91 x 4 = 364

  • The Joker is the 53rd archetype and the 5th element in this 4-part matrix. His numeric value is represented as his elemental interplay with the 4-part baseline structure, mathematically rendered as

5/4 which reduces to 1 ¼

  • When we place the Joker back into the deck we get

364 + 1 ¼ = 365 ¼

Our Earthly Matrix

Based on the number correspondences, we can see that this “deck of cards” is, in fact, a conceptual representation of the Earth revolving around the Sun.

It thus perfectly represents the holographic deck on which, and in which, we live and move and have our being.

Now, to an ancient mind, a collection of loose leaves could still be considered a book. Recall that books of the bible were unbound scrolls and pieces of parchment. To ourmodern mind, the leaves must be bound to qualify as a book. Not so, in ancient times.

And thus, the 52 + 1 loose leaves of this deck that represent our life upon this Earth were known in ancient esoteric spiritual societies as a book – a book of numbers and symbols representing the mathematical matrix in which we find ourselves. It is a book that represents life, as we know it.

This Deck of 52 is none other than the ancient, fabled Book of Life.

And, there are more than twenty references in our Bible to the Book of Life. It forms the basis of Kabbalah and Hermetic philosophy.

The Biblical writers were well aware of it. There are more than 20 references in the Bible to the Book of Life.

The deck of cards is the Book of Life. It has been hidden in plain sight all this time, which is, of course, the best place to hide anything.

Live An Elevated Life

We realize our full potential in life, not by trying to overachieve, outperform, or 10x our productivity. That approach only pushes us out of our natural sweet spot and leads to stress and burnout. Rather, we realize our full potential when, and only when, we're in harmonic resonance with who we are.

When we're in sync with ourselves, we enter our flow state. It's what athletes or musicians might call being in "the zone." And it's then that we effortlessly elevate our life's performance.

The question, of course, is how to get in sync with ourselves? It's a question I could only answer for myself once I found out what's in the cards for me.
