By Albert Pike - The clasped hands is another symbol which was used by Pythagoras.clasped hands

It represented the number 10, the sacred number in which all the preceding numbers were contained; the number expressed by the mysterious Tetractys, a figure borrowed by him and the Hebrew priests alike from the Egyptian sacred science, and which ought to be replaced among the symbols of the Masters degree, where it of right belongs.

The Hebrews formed it thus, with the letters of the Divine name:

The Tetractys thus leads you, not only to the study of the Pythagorean philosophy as to numbers, but also to the Kabalah, and will aid you in discovering the True Word, and understanding what was meant by "The Music of the Spheres."
