Metaphysical meaning of Kartan (mbd)
Kartan, kär'-tan (Heb.)--double city; large city

A city of Naphtali that was given over to the Gershonite Levites (Josh. 21:32). It is believed to be the same city as Kiriathaim.

Meta. Kartan, like Kartah, represents a group of thoughts of a convening, cooperative nature, only doubly large in number, or two groups united in one (double city), and belonging to the Naphtali or strength center in consciousness. The strength of these thoughts is set apart for use in sustaining the natural religious tendencies (Levites) of the individual.
