A minor quibble

I've just finished reading the chapter on the Star and noticed that Seckler has switched the traditional Intelligences of the 15th and 28th paths. Those are the paths of the Star and the Emperor.

The 15th path is traditionally assigned to the Constituting Intelligence. While the 28th path is usually called the Natural Intelligence. In my opinion the Intelligences correspond to the Hebrew letters and therefore don't move with the cards. Seckler's successor in T.O.T., Jim Eshelman, seems to agree and has retained the traditional order.

But it just goes to show how malleable and fluid the correspondences of these two paths can be, and how interpretations can easily be reframed on compatible paths such as Heh and Tzaddi.
