How are we to interpret lines that end in several different letters/numbers on the rim of the Timemap?
A few examples:
- Day 2, 7, 8, and 12 have multiple lines.
- Day 8 has A3 and D4 (indicating encountering karma in two different Fields).
- Day 12 bifurcates and also goes through Day 13 with both lines ending in different Fields.
a) Do we draw cards for both Fields when there are multiple lines, like Days 2, 7, 8 and 12?
- Day 263-267 are conjoined to 2 different Fields.
b) Do we draw cards for both Fields (A4 and I1) on all the days?
These are valid questions, and I’m glad you asked: You always follow the line on the left. So, for day 2, your main insight will be D1, for example. On Day 12 it would be I3 (letter I, number 3). Day 13 has only one line through it and that ends in D2.
As for the days 263–267: Days 263,264,265,266 — these all follow the line to the left, which is A4. Only 267 follows the vertical line to I1 (letter I, number 1).
The bottom line is that you only draw ONE set of cards per day. I’ll explain why.
- The Timemap is a multi-layered, intricate device, especially this fourth one that indicates the flow of time forward and backwards and inter-dimensionally. The smallest detail has meaning. When 2 lines go through a specific day, there are two influences occurring but we only focus on the most dominant. Where a line originates and what direction it goes plus the color of the day and how it interacts with the color of the Field is a whole other depth of study. BUT THIS HAS TO BE USABLE FOR EVERYONE, EVERY DAY. And so we focus only on the most dominant influences of each day, rather than turning it into a complicated science.
