Speaking about QBL, this game seems to be fully set within the sephiroth of Tiferet.
Not only is is about optimism, ritual, etc, but Tiferet is the sephiroth of the sun, and also the 6th sephiroth (6 is the number of 'slices' the sun symbol is cut into). It's color is yellow, the same as the game.
It is seen as a place to sweat out all your ambitions, and then set about doing the Great Work.
6 is the number of holism, harmony, beauty and love. Which seem to be closely related to the guiding principles of this game.
As Ian mentions in Feutility, this game may be degrading. If that is so, it is then appropriate, as it is another ambition to be sweated out of the system before being able to accomplish the 'Great Work'
