58. Why 58 indices? Because 5 + 8 = the members of the body, arms, legs, and head, and the eight regions of the body: the back, the belly, the skull, the face, the buttocks, the genitals, the anus, the throat.
Or else because 5 + 8 = 13 and 13 = 1 & 3, 1 standing for unity (one body) and 3 standing for an endlessly circulating agitation and transformation; dividing and exciting itself among the body’s matter, soul and spirit … Or even: the arcane XIII of the tarot deck designating death, death incorporating the body in an everlasting universal body of mud and
chemical cycles, of heat and stellar bursts.
