But to enter fully upon the nature of these various worlds would carry us too far into the obscure mysticism of the Cabala.
It is divided into three species: Gematria, Notaricon, and Temura. The word, which is evidently a rabbinical corruption of the Greek geometric, is defined by Buxtorf to be "a species of the Cabala which collects the same sense of different words from their equal numerical value.
Gematria, is therefore, a mode of contemplating words according to the numerical value of their letters. Any two words, the letters of which have the same numerical value, are mutually convertible, and each is supposed to contain the latent signification of the other.
Thus the words in Genesis xlix, 10, "Shiloh shall come," are supposed to contain a prophecy of the Messiah, because the letters of ''Shiloh shall come, " and of "Messiah," both have the numerical value ofaccording to the above table.
By Gematria, applied to the Greek language, we find the identity of Abraxas and Mithras, the letters of each word having in the Greek alphabet the equal value of This is by far the most common mode of applying the literal Cabala. Notaricon is derived from the Latin notarius a shorthand writer or writer in cipher.
The Roman Notarii were accustomed to use single letters, to signify whole words with other methods of abbreviation, by marks called notae. Hence, among the Cabalists, notaricon is a mode constructing one word out of the initials or finals of many, or a sentence out of the letters of a word, each letter being used as the initial of another word.
Thus of the sentence in Deuteronomy xxx, 12, "Who shall go up for us to heaven? Temura is a rabbinical word which signifies permutation. Hence temura is a Caballstic result produced by a change or permutation of the letters of a word.
Sometimes the letters are transposed to form another word, as in the modern anagram ; and sometimes the letters are changed for others, according to certain fixed rules of alphabetical permutation, the first letter being placed for the twenty-second the second for the twenty-first, the third for the twentieth, and so on.
It is in this way that Babel, is made out of Sheshach, and hence the Cabalists say that when Jeremiah used the word Sheshach, xxv, 26, he referred to Babel.
A group of minor Greek, deities the name signifying great Gods having the protection of sailors and vessels at sea. Worshipped at Lemnos, Samothrace, Thessalia, Bocotia, etc. Initiation into their mysteries portrayed passage through death to a higher live.
Many of the ancient deities believed to have been members of the Cabiri such as Pluto, proserpine, Mercury, the sons of Vulcan, the sons of Jupiter, etc.
The gods called the Cabiri were originally two, and afterward four, in number, and are supposed by Bryant Analysis of Ancient Mythology, iii, to have referred to Noah and his three sons, the Cabiric Mysteries being a modification of the arkite worship. In these mysteries there was a ceremony called the "Cabiric Death," in which was represented amid the groans and tears and subsequent rejoicing of the initiates, the death and restoration to life of Cadmillus, the youngest of the Cabiri.
The legend recorded that he was slain by his three Brethren, who afterward fled with his virile parts in a mystic basket.
His body was crowned with flowers, and was buried at the foot of Mount Olympus. There is much perplexity connected with the subject of these mysteries, but it is generally supposed that they were instituted in honor of Atys, the son of Cybele or Demeter, of whom Cadmillus was but another name.
According to Macrobius, Atys was one of the appellations of the sun, and we know that the mysteries were celebrated at the vernal equinox.
They lasted three days, during which they represented in the person of Atys, or Cadmillus, the enigmatical death of the sun in winter, and his regeneration in the spring. In all probability, in the initiation, the candidate passed through a drama, the subject of whichwas the violent death of Atys.
The Cabiric Death was, in fact, a type of the Hiramic, and the legend, so far as it can be understood from the faint allusions of ancient authors, was very analogous in spirit and design to that of the Third Degree of Freemasonry.
Many persons annually resorted to Samothrace to be initiated into the celebrated mysteries, among whom are mentioned Cadmus, Orpheus, Hercules, and Ulysses.
Jamblichus says, in his Life of Pythagoras, that from those of Lemnos that sage derived much of his wisdom. The mysteries of the Cabiri were much respected among the common people, and great care was taken in their concealment.
The priests made use of a language peculiar to the Rites. The mysteries were in existence at Samothrace as late as the eighteenth year of the Christian era, at which time the Emperor Germanicus embarked for that island, to be initiated, but was prevented from accomplishing his purpose by adverse winds.
Richardson Dictionary defines it as " The word is purely Masonic, and in some writings of the early part of the eighteenth century we find the expression cable rope. Prichard so uses it in The German word for a cable or rope is kabeltauw, and thence our cable tow is probably derived.
In its first inception, the cable tow seems to have been used only as a physical means of controlling the canidate, and such an interpretation is still given in the Entered Apprentice's Degree.
But in the Second and Third Degrees a more modern symbolism has been introduced, and the cable tow is in these grades supposed to symbolize the covenant by which all Freemasons are tied, thus reminding us of the passage in Hosea xi, 4"1 drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love.
But the expression is really symbolic, and as it was defined by the Baltimore Convention inmeans the scope of a man's reasonable ability.We will write a custom essay sample on Substance Abuse Clinical Assessment specifically for you for only $ $/page.

BLAVATSKY, Author of "ISIS UNVEILED." "There is no Religion higher than Truth.". Substance Abuse Treatment as it Is Related to Trauma Research indicates that there is a strong correlation between people who have experienced trauma (whether in childhood or in adulthood) and substance abuse or dependency.
However, diagnosing problematic drug-seeking behavior also requires a specialized knowledge of the substance abuse disorders in particular, including etiology, diagnosis, and treatment. Remember, though, that simply using substances is not a sufficient criterion for diagnosing substance use disorders.
