Tsade צ

Tsade is eighteenth and it is circumspection.

It is the careful hunt and the unavoidable gaze; it is the instrument that captures and keeps, the archivist's tool in the search for truth. It is the selective wisdom of the quest, and the wise ruthlessness of the scholar.

Tsade changes magic into science. It eliminates the superfluity of ritual, but keeps the essentials and codifies them. What is done in the end is the minimal, the ideal, the true. What more can you ask? Or should you?
