Yetziratic text

The Eighth Path is named The Perfect Consciousness. (Sekhel Shalem) It is called this because it is the original arrangement. There is no route through which it can be pondered, except through the chambers of Greatness, which emanate from the essence of its permanence.

Description

Hod is the Sephirah of symbolic communication. Whereas Netzach represents the conquering forces of the instincts and of nature, Hod clothes those forces within many forms. It may be said that those forces "submit" to embodiment within form in this Sephirah.

In the human being, Hod is found within the conscious, voluntary processes, such as the striated musculo-skeletal system.
