Towards an Analysis of The Logomachy of Zos
"Art alone having the gift of tongues has universal understanding, hence to know its fundaments is the initial path to Wisdom and Knowledge."
in the Logomachy this same statement is repeated with only minor variation; "To
know the fundaments of Art is to know the path of all wisdom." We should
keep in mind that the Logomachy was an unfinished work and we probably witness
in it a process of altering and refining the various ways in which a thing can
be said. And yet, the Logomachy, like many of Spare's other works, is also supposed
to be a channeled work and so it is not Spare who is consciously performing the
refinements and editing. Similar repetitions occur in other places in the text
what hasn't been mentioned here, a question which has been with us in the background
from the very beginning. Is Spare playing with the Qabalistic divide of Knowledge
(Daath), Understanding (Binah), and Wisdom (Chokmah) or are the words being used
loosely and, at points, interchangably? This seems an important point upon which
it doesn't yet seem possible to draw an absolute conclusion.
