The 18 card of the tarot deck is the moon card. The moon card, has two pillars. Kabbalah has two pillars. Kabbalists presume to "restore the balance" of the universe between the pillar of mercy and the pillar of severity. Occultists conquer their enemies by dividing them (creating balance) and pairing them off against each other. Pundits were split on the issue of the tazering incident.
A half-light and half-dark moon represents duality. Kabbalists believe in a dualistic, half male, half female god. They believe Adam was created in the image of this hermaphrodite god. The number 18 tarot card also features a crayfish. The crayfish has occult significance for being able to impregnate itself, thus containing both the male and female principle and hearkening back to the pre-fall occult hermaphrodite mockery of Adam, the first man, and the utopian state which occultists seek to "return" to.
Andrew Meyer is said to be associated with the Hillel at the University of Florida. Hillel is the student arm of the ADL of B'nai B'rith. B'nai B'rith is Judaic Freemasonry. Freemason, Albert Pike states that tarot contains the Kabbalistic alphabet (Morals and Dogma, p.777). There are 18 consonants in the Hebrew alphabet. Orthodox Judaics pray Shemoneh 'Esreh (18 benedictions).
In Kabbalah, 18 is the numerical value of chai or "life." Chai is the name of the transcendent soul of Atzilut, the highest of the four Kabbalistic worlds of creation. Atzilut, literally, means "emanation."
Atzilut is the world of Divine emanation, wholly conscious of its Divine origin. The process of "emanation" is described in Chassidut as one of he'elem v'gilui ("concealment and revelation," i.e., the process of revealing the essence of that which had hitherto been concealed).
[according to] the theory of the cosmic aeons of the Sabbatians ... the Torah of atzilut ... is the "true" Torah which, like the "mystery of the Godhead" it makes manifest, has been in a state of concealment for the entire period of the exile. Now that the redemption has commenced it is about to be revealed and although it is identical with the Torah of beriah [creation], it's way of being read will be different, thus, all the prohibitions and commandments of the Torah of beriah will now be reinterpreted in light of the World of atzilut, in which (to take but one example), as is stated in several Kabbalistic sources, there is no such thing as forbidden sexual practices ... The concept of the two Torahs was an extremely important one for Sabbatian nihilism ... (Gershom Scholem, The Messianic Idea in Judaism, pp.111-112)
The eighteenth degree of Scottish Rite Freemasonry is titled, "Knight Rose Croix" (knight of the rose cross). Rosicrucians are knights of the rose cross. In the 1615 Rosicrucian manifesto, Confessio Fraternitatis, it is stated that in the future the occult would make it's secrets known. Michael A. Hoffman refers to this era foretold by the Rosicrucians as the Revelation of the Method era, or the Making Manifest of all that is Hidden era. Albert Pike states that the 18th degree, Knight Rose Croix, teaches, " ...extinction of evil and sorrow, by a Redeemer or Messiah yet to come ..." (Morals and Dogma, p.287).
The occult is gambling that they have alchemically processed humanity to the degree that they will be able to reveal their secrets to us and we will do nothing about it; that the revelations will not free us but will only enslave us further. Will you allow them to win their wager?
