24. nun

(death)

Nun links Tiphareth, the soul prepared for incarnation, with Netzach, polarized and projected manifestation. Netzach is the first sephirah of the astral-personality triangle. Therefore the link between Tiphareth and Netzach is the path where both incarnation and dis-incarnation into and out of the personality takes place. It is a death (or birth) of the soul into the constraints of a personality and a death (or resurrection) in the more common understanding of the word. Death is also the name of the related tarot trump.

The energy's wandering down the tree is a process of polarisation and therefore increased projection. Tiphareth projects itself into the form-world (Yetzirah) beginning with Netzach. Nun is the path on which the soul directs and models the personality downwards into incarnation: "...it gives a likeness to all the similitudes which are created in like manner similar to its harmonious elegancies" (harmony=Tiphareth).

In Netzach we are seeking ourselves in others, in Tiphareth we experience our individual wholeness. The projective character of Netzach leads to desire, but it must be left behind to reach Tiphareth: Not only sexual desire but the desire nature of the personality as such, even the desire for life, survival. Acceptance of this death provides us with the freedom to change and ressurrect, to live.
