Psalm 118:22

Naturally, the correspondences all hinge upon where you place the ‘cipher’. Being that a person of no account, a fool, was known in medieval latin by this name, as was ‘nothing’ and ‘zero’, the cipher of the deck may provide a useful key. Ascribed the first letter, alef, he allows for a curious recursion of self-similar repeating patterns when applied to the 32 wondrous paths of wisdom outlined in the Book of Formation (Sepher Yetzirah).

The variations on the Tree of Life reflect their individual architect's attempt at reiterating those recursive symmetries further whilst leaving a conspicuous, yet instructive, piece of the puzzle out of place. As it is a framework for contemplation, each version bears the imprint of its maker's interpretation of how the 10 numbers + 22 letters are 'divinely' arranged.

Complementing the letters’ 3-7-12 typology in the Book of Formation, partitioning the letters by digit root (e.g. 7=1+6=16) groups their symbol attributions into sets which, fit together within the Tree, echo their recursive design yet further.

There is the question of esoteric tradition, but the hidden knowledge is in plain sight. If you see what I mean.
