B.O.T.A. tarot deck

The B. O. T. A. Tarot was created by Paul Foster Case, founder of B. O. T. A. and artist Jessie Burns Parke. Although it is based upon, for the most part resembles, Arthur Edward Waite's 1910 Rider-Waite deck, Case changed what he said were mistakes or "blinds" on part of Waite; the B. O. T. A. Tarot is presented in several editions: the standard-sized full deck and a larger version containing only the Major Arcana are black and white, since Case believed that every student needed to color their own deck. After his death, the Major Arcana became available in color; each of these cards has a border of a particular color, the color, associated with the card in the writings of Case. Every trump card has a Hebrew letter written on it in the lower right corner, the letter, associated with the card in the writings of Case. In contrast to some earlier occult tarot decks, which place the fool card last in order, associate it with the second-to-last Hebrew letter, the B. O. T. A. Deck places the fool card first in order, therefore associates it with the first Hebrew letter, aleph.

It orders shin before tav, in the correct order of Hebrew letters. All of the illustrations on the cards of the BOTA deck differ in at least some minor way from those of the Rider-Waite deck, but some cards contrast much more than others; the card that contrasts the most between the two decks is the death card. In the Rider-Waite deck, the death card depicts death as an armored knight on a horse, carrying a banner, whereas in the BOTA deck, the death card depicts death as a bare skeleton with a scythe, with a red sky in the background, being based upon the death card of the Marseille tarot deck. In the Rider-Waite deck, the sun card depicts a nude child on a horse, carrying a dull-red banner, whereas in the BOTA deck, the sun card depicts two nude children standing in a field, being based upon the sun card of the Marseille tarot deck. In his book The Tarot, Case published the Hebrew letter attributions of the Golden Dawn for the first time. Made public was the tarot tableau, a pattern for laying out all of the tarot cards which reveals certain relationships and dissimilarities among them.

This tableau was used by the American branch of Alpha et Omega when Case was the'praemonstrator' of that order's Thoth-Hermes lodge in Chicago. The tarot tableau is an arrangement of the 22 major arcana cards into 4 horizontal rows that span across 7 vertical columns. On the top row there is only the fool card, in the center of the row. Rows two through four consist of 7 cards each, arranged in sequential order, such that cards 1 through 7 are on row two, cards 8 through 14 are on row three, cards 15 through 21 are on row four. B. O. T. A. Repeatedly emphasizes that tarot cards are a tool for meditation, not fortune-telling. P. F. Case invented a new, non-magical definition for the word'divination', his new definition being "the use of spiritual intuition to find solutions to problems". After explaining the B. O. T. A. Method for tarot divination in his book titled'The Tarot, A Key to the Wisdom of the Ages', Case explains the differences between this particular type of divination and fortune-telling.

Case closes with the warning: "Finally, let me reiterate the thought that this is not to be used for vulgar fortune telling, or to amuse a party of friends. If you yield to the temptation so to abuse this information, you will pay for it in the loss of all power of true divination, in the loss of ability to control the higher rates of psychic vibration." The Tarot was the first published book to reveal all of the tarot attributions on the'Cube of Space' diagram. There are 22 major arcana tarot cards; the Sepher Yetzirah is the source of the link between the Cube of the Hebrew letters. The Sepher Yetzirah itself does not directly mention any kind of cube. Case based the Cube of Space upon two verses in the Sepher Yetzirah. One of those verses is in chapter 4 and the other verse is in chapter 5; the verse in chapter 4 associates 6 Hebrew letters with six cardinal directions. The verse in chapter 5 associates 12 Hebrew letters with either 12 diagonal directional'arms' or 12 diagonal boundaries, which would refer to the 12 edges of an octahedron, though Paul Foster Case interpreted these as the 12 edges of a cube.

P. F. Case furthermore associated this'Cube of Space' with the'Tree of Life' of Kabbala, he based that association upon paragraph 95 of the Sepher Ha-Bahir. That paragraph does not mention the Tree of Life though, but a tree. Paragraph 95 states that a tree is inside the twelve diagonal boundary lines that are mentioned in the Sepher Yetzirah; because the Tree of Life consists of 10 sephiroth, P. F. Case associated the three'mother' letters and seven'double' letters of the Sepher Yetzirah with ten corresponding sephiroth; until the publication of The Tarot, most English-speaking occultists had never heard of Case's Cube of Space concept, much less were they aware of how it related to the much better-known'Tree of Life' diagram. In fact, until the mid-1990s, there were no other books in print which mentioned the Cube of Space; the ones that do defer to Case's writings on the subject.

Heinz Rutishauser

Heinz Rutishauser was a Swiss mathematician and a pioneer of modern numerical mathematics and computer science. Heinz Rutishauser's father died when he was 13 years old and his mother died three years so together with his younger brother and sister he went to live in their uncle's home. From 1936, Rutishauser studied mathematics at the ETH Zürich where he graduated in 1942. From 1942 to 1945, he was assistant of Walter Saxer at the ETH, from 1945 to 1948, a mathematics teacher in Glarisegg and Trogen. In 1948, he received his Doctor of Philosophy from ETH with a well-received thesis on complex analysis. From 1948 to 1949, Rutishauser was in the United States at the Universities of Harvard and Princeton to study the state of the art in computing. From 1949 to 1955, he was a research associate at the Institute for Applied Mathematics at ETH Zürich founded by Eduard Stiefel, where he worked together with Ambros Speiser on the development of the first Swiss computer ERMETH, developed the programming language Superplan, the name being a reference to Rechenplan, in Konrad Zuse's terminology, designating a single Plankalkül program.

He contributed in the field of compiler pioneering work and was involved in defining the languages ALGOL 58 and ALGOL 60. He was a member of the International Federation for Information Processing IFIP Working Group 2.1, which supports and maintains ALGOL 60 and ALGOL 68. Among other contributions, he introduced several basic syntactic features to computer programming, notably the reserved word for for a for loop, first as the German für in Superplan, next via its English translation for in ALGOL 58. In 1951, Rutishauser became a lecturer. In 1955, he was appointed extraordinary professor, 1962, Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics at the ETH. In 1968, he became the head of the Group for Computer Science which became the Computer Science Institute and in 1981, The Division of Computer Science at ETH Zürich. At least since the 1950s Rutishauser suffered from heart problems. In 1964, he suffered a heart attack from. On 10 November 1970, he died in his office from acute heart failure. After his untimely death, his wife Margaret shepherded.

He would win it for the last time on July 19, 1960, once again teaming with Gagne and defeating Stan Kowalski and Tiny Mills. Nomellini won his final professional wrestling championship on May 23, 1961 when he and Wilbur Snyder defeated Gene Kiniski and Hard Boiled Haggerty for the AWA World Tag Team Championship.
