Base 3 is the foundation for the mathematical mysticism of the New Aeon

The Cube of Space is an incredibly logical and mathematically ingenious system for mapping the universe. It is very easy to memorize and visualize because of the marvelous base 3. The only drawback is that the Cube of Space is difficult to comprehend in 2d. That is why I made an printable fold-out of the 3d Cube of Space. It shows the 26 trigrams (the 27th is inside the cube) in their correct order. Each trigram represents either an element, or an planet, or a zodiac sign.

The Trigram 1 and Trigram 2 form the front side and back side of the cube (Yang in front, Yin in back).

The Trigram 3 and Trigram 6 form the right side and left side of the cube (Fire on the left, Water on the right).

The Trigram 9 and Trigram 18 form the top side and the bottom side of the cube (Air on the top, Earth in the bottom).

All opposite parts of the cube are occupied by antigrams. Each edge is the sum of the two sides that meet at that edge. Each corner is the sum of the three sides that meet at that corner.

I've starting to use the Cube of Space as a memory palace. With impressive results. Traditional qabalah can also be presented as a cube (sefer yetzirah). The 2D map presented by Golden Dawn and other western occult organizations lacks the spatial dimensions.

Scientists are re-discovering how fundamental spatial memory is: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/11/181108142443.htm
