There is a linking of the Thoth court cards (and their respective
sephiroth) with the Leary 8-circuit model in Robert Anton Wilson's
"Prometheus Rising." 

I have sketched out a few QBL correspondences (which are different
than the court card links).

The first four circuits would be the four sephiroth beneath Tiphareth:

Circuit 1 (oral bio--survival circuit) Malkuth
Circuit 2 (anal emotional-territorial circuit) Netzach
Circuit 3 (time-binding semantic circuit) Hod
Circuit 4  ("moral" socio-sexual circuit) Yesod

None of these are complete fits (except maybe Circuit 1 -- Malkuth).
The circuit imprints follow each other in linear order, and the
sephiroth I've attributed to them skip around (Yesod as circuit 4
rather than 2, for instance).

Above that:

Circuit 5 (Holistic Neurosomantic Circuit) Tiphareth 

(This one seems the most clear cut to me)

Circuit 6 (Collective Neurogentic Circuit) Chesed
(Again, these are dodgy when you try to pin them down, but generally
this has to do with accessing and integrating the evolutionary
"script" from the DNA, so it is more of an organizing force).

Circuit 7 (Meta-programming Circuit) Geburah
(Tears down everything you already "know" and rearranges it as the
case may be. Definitely a more volitile force than the more settled
Circuit 6).

Circuit 8 (Non-Local Quantum Circuit) The supernals (Binah, Chokmah,
and Kether).

It's a strange piece of synchroncity that you asked this, because I
had just finished sketching this out in my notes after doing some
Leary and Wilson reading. 

In thinking about this, I'm not sure all of the circuits cover all of
the sephiroth; the consensus seems to be that an incarnated human
doesn't reach to the top of the tree. Then again, according to Leary,
all bets are off above the 4th circuit, so anything is possible. QBL
says that no one gets to reach Kether and stay on this world, but it's
possible that those who reach Circuit 8 will reach a similar fate. 

I'd definitely like to find out for myself. :)
