In the thread on I Le Bateleur, I mention Goethe's concept of the Ürpflanze (outlined in more detail in that second link).

It is in that sense that I first began using the term many months ago in this forum - a term which has since been used by others (fair enough!) in other locations.

In its Ür-Tarot form, it is neither yet formed, nor yet unformed. It remains, in a sense, as a leaf, which transforms (metamorphosises) into its myriad possibilities - where each instance of its different 'incarnations' or manifestations is a particlar instance of the Ür-Tarot being metamorphosed by its local conditions. It is in that sense that what I wrote above reflects why I personally see the Hadar as a genuine ('véritable') Marseille.
