I forgot to mention that in the ArkLetter article on Courtly Love, http://www.tarotarkletters.com/2008/06/courtly-love-in.html , I did a long section on this very topic. In that it article it appears under the heading The Presence of Absence. Just scroll down below my little book-review section (at the beginning) and you'll find it. This same set of ideas is reviewed from a mythological perspective in the discussion of the Hymn of the Pearl in the article Sophia, Holy Word. http://noreah.typepad.com/tarot_arkletters/2007/05/sophia_holy_wor.html
For magicians and priesthoods, this deep focus on "Something from Nothing" started with the Emerald Tablet. To this very day all attention is focused on somehow "conceiving" a spark of our future selves, the ones who magically appear with fixes in hand for our present insolvable dilemmas.

One might also stay with the Courtly Love article a little longer and read the review of Christopher Lehrich's fascinating _The Occult Mind; Magic in Theory and Practice_. It follows the above section under the title 'Tarot and the Mind of Magic'.
I can't emphasize enough that historians of Tarot will forever misinterpret the evidence they are digging up until they can recognize and understand the magical worldview of the Renaissance.

Here's a new archive Samten just made available -- we are so lucky he's such a collector!
