Hi. Well, after deliberating on the classic tree for about 20 years, and climbing my way up to Wisdom, and considering the lower animal nature, and how we are supposed to transcend it- I realized that the entire tree is flawed. The current tree is based upon an animal nature, and it doesnt attain to a Wisdom that portrays a level of humanity that we have declared to be more in line with knowledge and reason. Therefor I am making the following adjustments:

Strength will now be known as endurance
Victory will now be known as success
Splendor will now be known as gratitude

thank you.

I believe I can see where you are coming from. The titles of the sephiroth do appear to conform somewhat to a descending hierarchy from divine emanations to material manifestation; divinity to mortality - look for the pivotal transitions - the qualities of a god becoming that of a man.

I haven't considered changing anything, maybe first try to understand a bit more what's already there.

I believe that somewhere in the past, our wise leaders decided that there is a difference between what Man must do, and what Man should do. It is because of this compromise that we have the blood spilled on our soils, and families going without shelter and food and water. This fundamental faith needs to change.

There is something to the idea that boundless ignorance can be a viable mystical path. But then, the blissful ignorant don't go about fixing things, Grasshopper. Ponder this on the Tree of Woe.

So you are scratching off the sticker and slapping a new label on parts of the existing framework?

I propose replacing Kether with "Excellence". I was divinely inspired with this insight after watching Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

After all anyone can put on a Crown, but it takes work to take on Excellence.

I actually put Platos definition of Good there, but excellence works too
