Ish-Man is a human Axis Mundi, a microcosm of the Cosmos. He is a universal man (a polymath) reflecting the twelve fruits of the tree of life stored in binary numbers.
He is neither equal to the Vitruvian Man nor the opposite of the Vitruvian Man. Rather, he is the sum of God (the Spirit) and the Vitruvian Man.
Ish-Man = God + Vitruvian Man
The Ish-Man is Jesus.
The Father: God (the Spirit)
The way: the ladder
Me: Ish-Man (Jesus)
As the Ish-Man, Jesus is the ladder by which the angels of God descend from heaven to earth, and ascend from earth to heaven.
You will see ‘heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on’ the Son of Man. (John 1:51) "NIV"
The Son of Man: Ish-Man (Jesus)
The Vitruvian Man is the physical or the man of the earth. Since God dwells in the metaphysical, the Ish-Man is the bridge between the physical abode of the Vitruvian Man and the metaphysical where God dwells.
Yin and Yang. This, of course, means polarity where God is one extreme and humans are the other extreme. Here, Man is Yin, God is Yang, and 'Yin and Yang' is equal to the conflict between man and God. In other words, the Vitruvian Man is chaos.
Mandala is harmony, and the square and the circle of the Vitruvian Man constitute chaos. This means that the square and circle constituting the Mandala are uniform, while the square and circle of the Vitruvian Man are disordered.
His death was the exit of the Spirit from his body; it was the parting ways of God and Man.
Jesus said, With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. (John 19:30) "NIV"
The resurrection of Jesus is the return of the Spirit of God into the human body and the restoration of man from the Vitruvian Man to the Ish-Man. It is the victory over death. He is alive!
He is risen (Matthew 28:6) "NKJV"
The burial of Jesus Christ was the sowing of a royal seed.
What you sow is not made alive unless it dies. (1 Corinthians 15:36) "NKJV"
The resurrection of Jesus Christ was the sprouting of the seed. Malkuth was the royal seed, and the plant that came out of the seed is the tree of life.
The tree is the following ten sefirot:
- Keter (crown)
- Chokhmah (wisdom)
- Binah (understanding)
- Gevurah (mercy)
- Tiferet (beauty)
- Chesed (kindness)
- Da'at (knowledge)
- Hod (splendour)
- Netzach (eternity)
- Yesod (foundation)
The tree of life is the giant storm in Saturn's northern hemisphere. Saturn's Hexagon, depicting non-judgment, is the ten Sefirot.
The tree of the knowledge of good and evil, on the other hand, is the giant storm in Saturn's southern hemisphere where Saturn's eye implies judgment.
Malkuth was the mustard seed, and the storm in Saturn's northern hemisphere is the Giant Gaokerena described in the Parable of the Mustard Seed.
The tree of the knowledge of good and evil is now abolished: the giant storm in Saturn's southern hemisphere is now the root of the tree of life. There is only one tree whose shoot is the giant storm in Saturn's northern hemisphere and whose root is the giant storm in Saturn's southern hemisphere.
Saturn's hexagon is light (Yang) and Saturn's eye is darkness (Yin). Separated, Saturn's eye is dominant and Saturn's hexagon is recessive; united, Saturn's hexagon is dominant and Saturn's eye is recessive.
The tree of the knowledge of good and evil is the darkness below the planet Saturn, and the tree of life is the light above the planet. The darkness was destroye by the light the moment the two trees were united to form only one tree.
In other words, Judgment is destroyed by non-Judgment.
He has cast out your enemy. (Zephaniah 3:15) "NKJV"
never again will you fear any harm. (Zephaniah 3:15) "NIV"
The Word of God was a seed, and Malkuth was the seed (the Word).
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1) "NIV"
When planted, the Word (the mustard seed) sprouted and became a human being: the Ish-Man.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:14) "NKJV"
Malkuth was the grain (the seed) and the Ish-Man was the body that came out of the grain.
You do not sow that body that shall be, but mere grain (1 Corinthians 15:37) "NKJV"
Since the Ish-Man is the tree of life, the ten Sefirot are the following ten organs of the human body:
- Skull (Keter)
- Right Brain (Chokhmah)
- Left Brain (Binah)
- Central Brain (Da'at)
- Right Arm (Chesed)
- Left Arm (Gevurah)
- Torso (Tiferet)
- Right Leg (Netzach)
- Left Leg (Hod)
- Sexual Organ (Yesod)
Since the kingdom of God is made up of males and females, Yesod is a male and female reproductive organ.
They are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” (Matthew 19:6) "NKJV"
Since the cosmic tree described in the Parable of the Mustard Seed is the kingdom, the Ish-Man is the kingdom and the kingship. This was why Jesus said,
The cosmos (the orderly universe) is the magnified Christ. And every man must look inwards in order to discover the cosmos (the harmony) inside him. Christ (the cosmos) is the macrocosm, and the Ish-Man is the microcosm of the Macrocosm.
The Ish-Man is a human being full of wisdom and understanding. He is kind, merciful and knowledgeable.
His brilliance radiates splendour and beauty:
The Ish-Man wears the crown (Keter) and builds the foundation of his kingdom (his house) on a solid rock.
Jesus is the rock.
