The Ancient of the Days is original in each human being, He is the Father. There are as many Fathers in Heaven as there are humans on Earth. The Ancient of the Days is the occult of the occult, the mercy of mercies, the goodness of goodness, the root of our Being, the “Great Wind.” The hair of the Ancient of the Days has thirteen ringlets; his beard has thirteen locks.

The Thirteenth Arcanum is the Ancient of Days. Only by defeating death can we incarnate the Ancient of Days. The funeral ordeals of the Thirteenth Arcanum are more frightful and terrible than the abyss.

Tarot 13

We need a supreme death in order to have the right to incarnate the Ancient of the Days. Only the one who incarnates him has the right to internally wear the hair and the beard of the venerable Elder.

Only in the presence of the Angels of Death, after becoming victorious in the funeral ordeals, can we incarnate the Ancient of Days. Whosoever incarnates Him becomes another Elder in Eternity.

The Ancient of Days is the first outstandingly divine emanation of the Abstract Absolute Space.
