Paul Foster Case uses this term to refer to Alpha God, but also uses it to refer more generally to the Fabric of Consciousness. "[1]

"In brief, then, the Hermit and the Fool are two aspects of one principle, which is the “foundation” of all things. The Hermit is the Ancient One, the Source of all existence, above all things, yet supporting all. He precedes everything, and is forever young, as in the symbolism of the Fool;"[2]
