No connection has been proved. The point is: the correlations being brought to light are sufficient to warrant a more serious investigation of the alphabetic evidence contemporaneous with the early Tarot.

Well, this may be true within a metaphysical context, a context in which one is able to draw some correlation between virtually any two things. But it certainly isn't true within a scholarly context, a context in which correlations must be specific, conspicuous and singular. The correlations of the occultists are wonderful but are of a different type than those of the historical researcher.
