The extra mile

The Complete Esoteric System

The difference between the ordinary and extraordinary is going that legendary extra mile.
Going the extra mile means that one is willing to make a special effort to achieve something.
It also reveals the difference between what is considered “exoteric”, the mundane life of the material world, and what is vaguely called “esoteric” and signifies the intangible “spiritual” world. One can settle for the obvious and tangible or can go the extra mile to discover the hidden. This world, however, is inaccessible for most people.
It took me twenty-five years of research, study and practical experience to have the outlines of my own esoteric system. It was not my intention to create a new system, but I wanted to understand and rectify the existing one. It was a task of backwards-engineering and rediscovering a lost, forgotten and altered system. In that regard, it is not “my system” but the system as it was originally designed. My only merit is walking that extra mile. My instruments were questioning, verifying, comparing, and take nothing for granted. The idea that “everything we know is wrong” haunted me. I always felt that something was not right, but I could not put my finger exactly on what was that. (…)
My first significant breakthrough was discovering what somewhat ironically I called “the God’s formula,” and which is three by four makes twelve. Identifying what the threes are, respectively, the fours throughout all the branches of the esoteric sciences, became my primordial working method. (…)
I published the core of my findings along with my first Tarot deck, the Unified Esoteric Tarot, in 2018.

KS Strength

Karpathy-Smith Tarot Strength

Karpathy-Smith Tarot Strength
If I defined Strength with only a few words, those would be silent resistance.
Strength can be assimilated to Courage in the larger context of the seven virtues, one of the four Cardinal virtues among Prudence, Justice and Temperance. In the enumeration of moral virtues, Courage was re-placed by Fortitude. Patience and perseverance are attributes related to Fortitude. On the other hand, Strength also can be associated with Chastity as opposed to Lust, one of the seven deadly sins.
Some of these characteristics are complementary, and others are interconnected or overlapping each other. Subsequently, their association with the Major Arcana cards is arguable. Both the attributes, names and the iconography of these archetypes have changed over time. Especially studying the decks of Etteilla, one may find disturbing discrepancies. Nothing is easy and straightforward as one may believe.

The Karpathy-Smith deck is a limited, 780 copies only, refreshing Tarot, a reimagining of the original Rider-Waite deck using mixed media techniques.
78+2 cards, 310 gsm, casino quality card stock, linen finish.
8-sided, accordion, printed mini-booklet, numbered, personalized, including instructions for 2 spreads, upright and reversed meaning for all the 78 cards and the diagram for the 32 paths of Wisdom.
Two packing options, rigid box and velvet bag.
