I found this; I thought to post it, I know it is further along in the study and it belongs in the beginning of the study group. sorry that it took me sooo long. I'm Waite illiterate.

I have said as much as I can; it is the truth after itsown manner, and as much as can be expected or required in those outer circles where thequalifications of special research cannot be expected.....”

35. If the Tarot were of fortune-telling in the root-matter thereof, we should have to look in very strange places for the motive which devised it—to Witchcraft and the Black Sabbath, rather than any Secret Doctrine.
I read this in the THE DOCTRINE OF TRANSCENDENT MAGIC by Levi, translated by A.E.Waite

Yes, gold can really and materially be made by means of the stone of the sages, which is an amalgam of salt, sulphur, and mercury, thrice combined in Azoth by a triple sublimation and a triple fixation. Yes, the operation is often easy, and may be accomplished in a day, an instant ; at other times it requires months and years. But to succeed in the great work, one must be divinus a diviner, in the kabbalistic sense of the term and it is indispensable that one should have renounced, in respect of personal interest, the advantage of wealth, so as to become its dispenser.
I found this too, just thought to post it before, I totally forget where I read this.

Fundamentally, the figure is analogous to the cherub of Jekeskiel, of which a representation is here given, and to the Indian symbol of Addhanari, which again is analogous to the ado-nai of Jekeskiel, who is vulgarly called Ezekiel. The comprehension of this figure is the key of all the occult sciences.
