Any Tarot system reflects both the "technical" views of its creators as well as the philosphical ones. In the GD system Creation was said to have begin with a pure state of being, which was then animated (by the Magician).

From a Kabbalistic standpoint this is important, as it affects the place and role of all the individual cards, but I'm not sure how important this is for just doing readings. Ruby Jewel, what switch are you referring to?

In any case, when in Rome, etc. Different systems have different symbolic languages, and overlaying one on top of the other (like making the Thoth Fool 21 or something like that) doesn't really work in my opinion.
