Canseliet mentioned that plate 4 should be taken symbolically and not literally. Any of our members have thoughts on this notion?

I'm also looking for an explanation/interpretation of the events taking place in plate 14.

In the 14th plate, on the third row, is what looks like a mortar & pestle, but actually it's a vajra and a cup/chalice.

The vajra is a representation of the male aspect (amongst many other things), and the chalice is a representation of the feminine aspect. Since the vajra is placed within the cup, symbolically it might represent the union of the male/female principle.
