Thanks for that roppo. I wondered about that myself.

"Derived to" is a phrase Waite uses quite a bit elsewhere. In that sentence, if an editor couldn't read his handwriting, "derived" seems like an unusual choice. If he/she was making a guess, "directed" seems like it would've made a better candidate.

I'll have to leave this to ponder tomorrow.

By the way, the Wisdom of the Ages is what Waite called the Secret Doctrine.

okay I came across this Video, seriously just watch it. pay attention to these times in the video what do you see?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MrjJ8OGWCY

First time (video at 0:40 ) you find this symbol on the back of the PSC tarot deck. and on the Death card. very interesting <thinking> Where is the location of this ? Very curious about this Stone. also look at the broken stone next to it, I see a letter ( e ) and the number ( 1`).

Then skip to this time:

Second time ( video at 5:26) watch the Magician (Conduit) in action. well not in action (tube) look at what is connected to the tube. (above and below or top and bottom)

If you want you can watch the whole video

Or better worded channeled to?
The Magician receives energies from "above" (superconscious levels, higher dimensions, planets and stars etc) and channels them into the realm "below" (human affairs, individual existence, physical reality).

ETA: ie: Electricity has 2 forms, AC and DC, so for the Magician, which of these for example would he represent.
I would say, a good Magician can work with all different sorts of energy. It's a somewhat difficult question since the Magician is not literally working with electricity, unless of course you are talking about somebody like Nikola Tesla who was indeed called a wizard. As you probably know, he was working his technological miracles with AC of high voltage and high frequency. Interestingly, Tesla coils were sometimes being used in séances.

He is the "Conduit", "Receiver", "Transmitter", "Channel", nothing more.

Radio Transmitter, Tubes, Pipes, etc.

Considering the items on the table, which represent the four elements, so here I have something for you to ponder.

"On the table in front of the Magician," writes Dr. Waite, "are the implements of the four Tarot suits, signifying the elements of natural life, which lie like counters before the adept, and he adapts them as he wills." The Magician's problem is to arrange them in proper order.
What energies or metals, would fall into these elements. make a list.

Fire
Air
Water
Earth

Uranium, Mercury, Silver, Gold, Copper, Electricity, Laser, etc.

The reasons for this is that The Magician needs to put them in proper order. So lets see what that order might be.

Note: In the above video, that I posted, if you watched it, The Magician "Conduit" is the copper pipe, and this Copper pipe has an energy, it slowed down gravity. (magnet)

He is the receiver and transmitter of the energy, but he is directing it according to his Will.

Scientifically what would be the "Will"?

While you posted your response, I did edit the above, by adding more thoughts and fixing spelling, did you watch the video? if you did then you will understand my question.
