Daath Exploration

Light of Truth Oracle copyright Matthew James
The Mystica: Daath, Hebrew, "knowledge," is the non-Sephirah in the midst of the Abyss, situated on the Middle Pillar of the Kabbalah Tree of Life between Kether and Tiphareth. Daath in many ways is the most controversial element of the Kabbalistic tree, being both complex and obscure. It is a downward reflection of Kether, representing the closest thing to the knowledge of Kether that is attainable below the Abyss. It is also knowledge, in the Biblical sense, of Chokmah and Binah, the primal male and female centers of the tree.
