Daily Zohar 3288
80. וַדַּאי זֶהוּ בֵּרוּר הַדָּבָר, שֶׁאֱנוֹשׁ כְּשֶׁהִטְעָה אֶת הָעוֹלָם, בְּקוּלְמוֹס הָיָה רוֹשֵׁם רִשּׁוּמִים שֶׁל כָּל הַדְּמֻיּוֹת וַעֲבוֹדוֹת זָרוֹת בְּאוֹתוֹ קוּלְמוֹס (רֹשֶׁם רָשׁוּם), וְלָכֵן כָּתוּב בַּחֶרֶט, אוֹתוֹ שֶׁנּוֹדַע לַעֲשׂוֹת כָּךְ. וְזֶהוּ בֵּרוּר הַדָּבָר.
81. וְהַכֹּל הָיָה, שֶׁוַּדַּאי בְּכִיס הִשְׁלִיךְ הַזָּהָב וְכִסָּה אוֹתוֹ מִן הָעַיִן, כְּמוֹ שֶׁאָמְרוּ אוֹתָם מְכַשְּׁפִים, וְכָךְ צָרִיךְ בְּמִינֵי הַכְּשָׁפִים הַלָּלוּ. וְזֶהוּ מַעֲשֵׂיהֶם שֶׁל הַכְּשָׁפִים הַלָּלוּ – דָּבָר שֶׁצָּרִיךְ בְּגִלּוּי לְגַלּוֹת אַחַר כָּךְ, צָרִיךְ הַסְתָּרָה וְכִסּוּי בָּרִאשׁוֹנָה, שֶׁיִּתְכַּסֶּה מִן הָעַיִן, וְאַחַר כָּךְ יֵצֵא הָאֻמָּן לְאֻמָּנוּתוֹ. וְדָבָר שֶׁצָּרִיךְ אַחַר כָּךְ כִּסּוּי, צָרִיךְ בָּרִאשׁוֹנָה בְּגִלּוּי.

Zohar Ki Tisa
We continue the study of the Golden Calf and its creation process by the Erev Rav and their leaders, Yonos and Yimbrus. Start from previous studies of Ki Tisa to have a better understanding of this and the following studies.
In the book of Chanoch (or Book of Enoch, See note below) is says “Single child would be born to the the ‘head of white’ and when the people made from the flesh of donkeys they will cause him to make mistakes and put precious stones in golden bells without being aware of that. An image would be formed with the scriber ”
The single child from the head of white is Aaron that was born from the line of Chessed that its root is called ‘Head of White’. The Erev Rav are described as made out of Donkeys’ flesh. The golden bells are the bells on the garments of the High priest.
The ‘Scriber’ is the tool used by Enosh, son of Seth, son of Adam to make magic and lead people away from YHVH.
The Erev Rav knew that they had to connect to the Right column and draw Chassadim through Aaron, in order to succeed with their plot to create the Golden Calf.
Gold is the aspect of the Left and on Aaron, it used to draw holiness. The Erev Rav that is on the Left could connect to the Left (Gold aspect) of Aaron and draw Right/Chessed energy from him.
Enosh led the world into idol worship by the drawings he made with his scriber. His scriber wrote letters and shapes that expressed visually but drew down spiritual forces.
God created parallel spiritual systems. The Holy one on the right side and the impure on the other side. ‘סיטרא אחרא’ (Pronounced ‘Sitra Achra’) literally means ‘other-side’.
To create the Golden Calf, the Erev Rav needed the Holy Side of Aaron and they came with their magic and confused him to follow their ‘script’ and create their living idol.
The Book of Chanoch is one of the external books, found together with the Dead Sea Scrolls. It wasn’t included in the Bible because it wasn’t considered as sacred but Rabbi Shimon quotes it in the Zohar.
“וּלְשֵׁת גַּם הוּא יֻלַּד בֵּן וַיִּקְרָא אֶת שְׁמוֹ אֱנוֹשׁ אָז הוּחַל לִקְרֹא בְּשֵׁם יְהוָה.”
“And as for Seth, to him also a son was born; and he named him Enosh. Then men began to call on the name of YHVH.”
Enosh and his generation were on a very high spiritual level and could control the physical world by using the YHVH name but it was for selfish reasons. They were called the wicked generation of Enosh.
The leaders of the Erev Rav knew the wisdom of magic that came from the generation of Enosh. They needed the connection to the YHVH name that was in the hands of Aaron.
