There are obviously only two main issues of this, a best or a worst as may be judged by the rite-worker. These are invoked one after the other in this way. First, the problem or point of the rite is focused into clear consciousness and associated with the central “Here-Now” bottom base between the Pillars. This is carried over to the Black Pillar and the worst issues imagined, visualised, and otherwise dwelt on while the focus of attention travels steadily up the Pillar.
