The Existence card reflects a viewpoint quite opposite to that of the traditional card it replaces. The Magician is a manipulator, someone who deals with existence by asserting power over it, someone dissatisfied with the world and his place in it. The Magician wants to harness dangerous, even demonic forces to his will in order to create a world that reflects his own ego. The person on the Existence card contemplates the world, filled with awe at its majesty, content to be no more than a small part of it and with no desire to change it. While The Fool dances into the world, the person on the Existence card sits in meditation upon it.
