This made me wonder, which pillars would be emphasized by the other aeons.
We have Osiris => Mercy, Horus => Severity, ok.
Isis would have the Middle Pillar then?
Probably she wouldn't mind, except that she doesn't know of the structure of the Tree yet.
No, the Middle Pillar should go to the coming Aeon of Maat.

I like to dwell in all aeons simultaneously, past, present and future.
One must remember, that the world doesn't change. It is just seen differently:

It is the card of the Dying God; its importance in the present pack is merely that of the Cenotaph.

But if things have to be put right, it shows that they are very wrong.
It should be the chieftest aim of the wise to rid mankind of the insolence of self-sacrifice, of the calamity of chastity;
faith must be slain by certainty, and chastity by ecstasy.

In the Book of the Law it is written:
"Pity not the fallen! I never knew them. I am not for them. I console not: I hate the consoled and the consoler."
Redemption is a bad word; it implies a debt.
For every star possesses boundless wealth; the only proper way to deal with the ignorant is to bring them to the knowledge of their starry heritage.
To do this, it is necessary to behave as must be done in order to get on good terms with animals and children:
to treat them with absolute respect; even; in a certain sense, with worship.
