Temurah - The Dynamic Use of Number in English Qaballa

English Gematria has been seriously hampered by the intentional misdirections of Aleister Crowley. Why, for instance, was Crowley trying to create a whole new "order and placement of the English Alphabet" when indeed, the Alphabet had long ago been perfected and its mechanism of operation known and taught within various Masonic systems? Why indeed was Crowley intimating that the Letters of the English Alphabet required the affixing of new meanings to them when indeed, the meanings affixed to them had long ago been established and the Illuminatus System and philosophy inserted fully into the material and perfected over thousands of years?

The primary failure relative to the public in being able to ascertain the larger Illuminatus Construct arises from an inherently simplistic acceptance of the definitions put forward to the public. For example, Gematria is viewed with an idea that all letters are numbers, and therefore, all words are numbers and that all words (and their composite phrases) will have "esoterically significant" co-relations.

By this method, words as ISIS and OSIRIS can be shown to be equal to SPEECH and RELIGION respectively. Masonic texts written in the 1920's indeed make this direct co-relation, equating Isis to a "spoken or Oral" tradition while Osiris is equated to the written portion of the larger system. Each of the two systems are required and must be used collectively in order for the larger system to actually work. But this is just the beginning of the type of knowledge one needs to acquire in order to come to a comprehensive understanding of the larger Illuminatus system, which we refer to as "the Construct".

Gematria as a Simplistic Tool

As you delve into the world of the Occult and the use of number as a means to encode "truths", what you will find is that the number of ciphers documented reaches well over 100. In Dan Brown's "the Da Vinci Code", the At Bash Cipher was referenced to reveal "esoterically significant codes", or words with comparable values.

As taught to the profane (the non initiated public to include the schools dedicated to Crowley and Thelema), the use of Gematria extends by and large to the assigning of values to letters and simply adding up the values. However, to the keen student, the simplicity of such a system quickly becomes lacking in value as the complexity of the Construct becomes more fully known.

If we take the word "SUN", for instance, a basic ordinal code of SUN shows that SUN contains the basic ordinal letters 19.21.14, or S.U.N, and if we add the values of SUN together, we arrive at the number 54. As taught, you can then further reduce the value of 54 to a value of 5+4=9, and thus affix the number of the SUN to that of a "reduced ordinal code" of 9.

What exactly did you accomplish? Did you arrive at some special meaning by simply adding numbers as they appear in alphabet letter placements? How difficult was it to engage in a form of activity that is no more complicated than a third grade math test?

This form of Gematria, although you will find its place and value in the larger system, is still far from precise tools needed in order to penetrate the Veil of Isis (Speech). The process of adding (or re-adding) as it were, is the very basic act called "re-ad", or "reading". It is no more difficult for you to read as it is for you to make basic level of addition.

You should not presume that ANY SYSTEM predicated on simplistic addition, no matter how many skip codes and changes in value to the Letters you wish to make, is the process through which the Illuminatus System is constructed.

Temurah and the Dynamic Use of Number

There are multitudes of definitions available for the various Occult means of deciphering words. Temurah is but one of them, and like most of the available definitions, the definitions fail to truly point the aspirant into the proper direction upon which to begin to comprehend the intuitive nature of the larger Construct. Regarding Temurah, Manley P. Hall writes on in Secret Teachings of All Ages on the Qabalistic Keys to the Creation of Man,

"Under the general heading of Temurah several systems may be grouped and explained in which various letters are substituted for other letters according to prearranged tables or certain mathematical arrangements of letters, regular or irregular."

At the end of the day, Temurah is no more complicated than a recognition of a dynamic use of number as a means to perpetuate a truth as used by the Illuminatus systems. The system is based on the 6, the 66, the 666, and the 6666. These numbers alternate between meaning the Circumference (Pi), or the Diameter (inferring Pi). Thus you can affix a value of VIRGIN = 21+9+18+7+9+14 = 78 = 7+8 = 15 = 1+5 = 6, or you can apply a dynamic intuitive value in your analysis, showing that 6 is VI and RGIN is the word ORIGINAL, and hence VI-RGIN is saying "the Original VI", or the Original 6.

You can then show that 6 is Feminine, it contains the letters S and IX (as 9), and since the S is a 3, we can use the summative value of 3 (1+2+3=6) to show that the 6 (SIX) contains the word concepts of 6 and 9, or the Spiral Galaxy. This is just one example of Temurah, or the dynamic use of number.

Another example is in the word SUN. Since S and N have values of 3 and 5 respective (utilizing the Isisian Codes), then the letter 6 would have a Temurah component, or its placement is using a dynamic use of number, and so the 6 has a summative value of 21, or the direct letter placement of U in the Alphabet.

And yet there is another overt word that uses the dynamic use of number, and that is the word TON. Since T is located at 20, and the Letter O is the number 0, we can show that TO = 200, and yet a TON has a value of 2000 pounds. In this way, we know that the Letter N must have a value of 10 as TO has a value of 200 and TON has a value of 2000.

So when Manley P. Hall references the usage of number in either static tables where values are changed against a set matrix as the At Bash Cipher was demonstrated in the Da Vinci Code, or if you have situations where the values of the Letters clearly hide a mathematical formulation, as the word SUN, the most difficult hurdle you will make in seeking to comprehend the Occult system is that at it is a philosophy based on number and that any given set of words may or may not be utilizing a series of dynamic number even as the ordinal code (simple Gematria) too is being utilized.

Thus in the word ISIS we have the letters 9+19+19+9, and yet "36" is the secret number of ISIS as ISIS = 9+19+9+19 = 9*(1*9)+9+(1*9) = 666, and so forth.

This "dynamic use" of number is just one form of the larger subsystem known as "temurah".

The Gra, the Holy Grail, and the Vesica Piscis

When one seeks to penetrate the Mysteries, such mysteries to include the Holy Grail, it might benefit the seeker to understand the Hermetic Arcanum:

Let the studious Reader have a care of the manifold significations of words, for by deceitful windings, and doubtful, yea contrary speeches (as it should seem), Philosophers wrote their mysteries, with a desire of veiling and hiding, yet not of sophisticating or destroying the truth; and though their writings abound with ambiguous and equivocal words; yet about none do they more contend than in hiding their Golden Branch.

What this tells us is that there is a discernable philosophical reality hiding under the "manifold signification of words", that these significations are veiling and yet not destroying an underlying "truth", and that through a comprehensive analysis of words, studious "Readers" may be able to penetrate the entire system through a conscious recognition that what appears to be contradictory in wording may indeed be complimentary when placed into perspective against other comparable or related works.

"Readers" as opposed to the generic use of the word "reader", being that the former is capitalized, amounts to that of someone with a "title". This is a very simple yet succinct example as to the manifold significations of words. However, significations of words take on many forms, from the elevation of philosophics surrounding "the Omnific" or "Lost Word", to subtle hints as to how to build the the Philosopher's Stone.

Building on the Conceptual

Well-being I won
And wisdom too.
I grew and took joy in my growth:
From a word to a word
I was led to a word,
From a deed to another deed.

Odin, by sir E. Burne-Jones
When we build on the manifold significations of words, it is necessary to lay foundations along the way relative to the larger philosophic which has been for thousands of years in the process of being veiled. Hence in the poem "Odin" by Sir E. Burne-Jones, the hidden message is that well being and "growth" has much to do with the ability to penetrate the veil and to come to an understanding of the Conceptual. Words, or their manifold significations, must be pierced before one may be able to place a word down as a foundation stone. Each word must then be built one upon the other for each leads one back to the veiled and encoded philosophical truth contained in the language.

The entire process is what Plutarch refers to as "an apperception of the conceptual".

But the manner in which Philosopher's sought to veil and conceal without destroying contained, too, an artistic element. Thus in the form of expression known as Art we may find veiled references to the larger and all encompassing Construct. Thus in the Letter E we may find the Scales of Ma'at and the diameter and the circle (reference the design in the "e", lower case E), and so forth.

Yet still we have not approached the Golden Branch, which may be likened as being comprised of two components: a Geometric component and a literary expression of what would be mythologized as "the Lost Word", or the first 32 digit sequence of Pi.

GEMATRIA, or the fusing of Letters to Numbers to Sounds for the express purpose of encoding the larger Construct, plays a critical role in being led from one word to the next. Likewise, as the manifold significations of words is far more comprehensive than the laity can imagine, it is significant to note that in the root formation of words (consonants), we may derive two key words with the letters GMT:

GeoMetry and GeMaTria

Gematria provides the critical clues to the accompanying Geometry upon which the larger Construct and Philosophy has been caste.

Basic Philosophic Foundations

The Philosophy of the Illuminatus may be broken down into two primary elements, 0 as Female and 1 as Male. 0 as union, 1 as separation. Life is the process of evolution and dissolution. When male and female unite, life is created. Each individual life represents a division, while each individual death represents a dissolution, said dissolution trending when the soul operates normally towards "union".

The perfect expression of this element is fused to Pi, wherein the masculine 1 represents the male and 0 or circumference encodes the female. Neither the 1 as male nor the 0 female are said to exist "individually"; each must exist in harmony with the other.

These basic principles become inverted, as a "6" to a "9". If you are "sans gravity", or in a vacuum, without a reference point, and you were to see a 6 or a 9 floating past you, it would be impossible to know by the observation if you are looking at "6" or a "9", from purely a conceptual point of view. Hence within the Conceptual. The same would hold true if you took the letter X, divided it "at the waters", or the center point, cutting each half loose and allowed each to float independently. The V or the inverted "v" would be as the 6 is to the 9; each is derived from a composite symbol.

Gematria is the tool used to enable you to understand this aspect of the Philosophy or "Design of the Construct", as you prefer.

In the word SIX, we have two components, the Letter S located at 3 and the Roman Numeral sequence of IX, or 9. The number 3 of S is expressed in its summative form (1+2+3=6), and so the female 6 really cannot exist without the masculine 9 and so this is encoded as the word (S)(IX).

Thus the word S-IX encodes the philosophy, not the point of destroying it, but to veil it, as it were, into a simple mathematical expression. When we further review the Isisian Codes, we note that the word FIVE is located at Column 6 (FV=6). The formula of "5=6" as an "Hermetic degree" is well established, the degree veiling the underlying mathematical construction.

In the word 5 (FIVE), we can then invert the formula:

F = 6
IV = Roman Numberal 4
E = 5

F = 6; (IV)+E = 4+5 = 9

FIVE and SIX each contain the 6 female and the 9 male. Combine the two, and you arrive at the inspiration behind its formation, or a "spiral galaxy", the root "spiral" being integral to such words as "spine", "spirit", "spire", etc.

In each of these cases, we demonstrate the use of Gematria as a means to hide the inherent truth into simple yet easily visible and decipherable mathematical cryptograms. In the case of the 6 and the 9, the 6 is an inversion of the 9, and vice versa, with each representing division and yet unity equally as one cannot be separate from the other when viewed relative to the larger design (a spiral galaxy).

As in the case of the "spiral galaxy", we can build further onto the Construct: life as material existence requires order upon which to be founded. This "order" can be construed as the aggregate density of matter fused to time that enables the chemical processes that enable life to flourish. These processes become represented in a physical observation as a "spinning" process (again invoking the "spi" formation as in "spinal", "spiral", etc.). That "pi" follows the S in the spelling is clue enough, that the S can be viewed as 1/2 of 8 is clue enough, that the letter set to denote "that which comes before a word" is called a PRE-FIX is clue enough:



Through solving through the FIX, you have built upon a "word" and can now be led to another word. In this case, one could solve for the rational reasoning behind PRE, taking the above information into account as you try to reason it through.

Past Tense of Present Conditions

When we delve further into the manifold signification of words, it often becomes necessary to utilize the full range of tools available to us, such tools to include a comprehensive understanding of Gematria (Letters/Numbers/Sounds). We also require the use of Art, Music, Meditation, Reasoning, and so forth.

The critical start point remains, however, to realize that a Construct exists, that you are a part of this Construct, that part of your journey is to rise above this Construct so as to manipulate same rather than be manipulated by, to the degree and extent possible.

You become wise when you realize that millions of people have come before you in the development of the Construct and the preservation of same. Each of these were in search of their own "Holy Grail". Some of these people are well known, say a "Da Vinci", but in the United States alone, Masonry and its adherents numbered in the millions of people. Even if a small percentage of these people came to understand the Construct, say 2%, the numbers of those preserving and advancing and refining these inherent truths numbered in the 100's of thousands of people over a series of interlocking generations.

These people, knowing the war against ignorance is as keeping the sea at bay, practiced and set down the foundation of "Truth" in silence, and you can be assured that somewhere cells are operating in silence to continue to preserve this knowledge even in the face of egregious affronts to "these gods" to whom these cells are beholden.

So in each individual work of Art, or in each subtle poem, or in each rousing march one may find clues to the Construct hidden within. For example, the acrostic puzzle to the start of the Star Spangled Banner, "Oh say can you see, by the dawns early light" is an acrostic puzzle that reads "OCCULT":

Oh = O
(S)ay = S = 3 = C
(C)an = C = 3 = C
U = U
(S)ee = 3 = L
T = Sun arising on the horizon (dawns early light)

OSCUL(T=Dawn's Early Light) = OCCULT

Without the Occult, you cannot seek after your GRAIL save for a superstitious goose chase. Manifold significations are key to breaking down the Philosophy of the Illuminatus in a manner that enables you to see.

Take for instance the idea that "n" = "10". This principal is dealt with in the article, "Superman and the Relationship of "n" to "10"". There is a transposition set wherein N's are "D's" are "T's" are "J's" are "W's" are "X's", and so forth. What this means is that there "may be" "esoteric significances" set into words where a single letter is being changed within this sequence.

Within the Construct we have "The Garden of Eden" and the casting out of mankind therefrom. In the word GARDEN, the phonetic set of GARDEN can be changed to GARDED (guarded). In the word "guarded" we can shift the "d" to a "t" and create "guarted", implying that "art" is used in the guarding of the way to the "Garden of Eden", and so forth. Still, you must keep in mind the idea of Pi, or 1 and 0, as defined, lest you be led astray.

The word GARDEN is really referring, in a past tense sense, to that which is being "guarded". There is no difference philosophically in the design between the word "guarded" and "garden"; each is implying the exact same thing. What is being "guarded" is also known as a "garden". The philosophical implications should not be underestimated as you trace the energy from a profane idea of what a garden is to an understanding that the word is referring in past tense to the defacto guarding of "plants" to be used for some beneficial purpose in the future.

The word GARDEN becomes what is known as a "PAST TENSE OF A PRESENT CONDITION." The "garden" is a present condition, but its ability to exist is based on the fact that it is "domesticated", not of the wild, and hence it is being "guarded".

The use of "past tenses" to represent "present conditions" is subtle yet intuitively genius. If we equate to the Letter B (make the bottom bigger than the top) to be the profile of a pregnant woman, then the "past tense of this present condition" becomes the word B'ed", or BED. Now the philosophical function of a "bed" as a word comes more into focus.

The BED is the past tense (location) of the present condition (a woman pregnant), latent life awaiting manifestations (BR)ED, another past tense of a present condition.

The GRA and the HOLY GRAIL

If I ask you the question, "Did he sail his boat today?", the word SAIL is implied to be in the "past tense". Equally, if someone "fails", then the word "fail" is, too, in the past tense.

In Illuminatus transposition systems, L's are at times equated to T's and by inference therefrom, are equated to D's. "D's" are oft used along with "N's" to represent "past tenses", as in "taken", "beholden", or "laughed". Yet when we study the words SAIL and FAIL, we note that these are too past tenses, so what then of the word GRAIL? If you are to be led from a word to a word, the words FAIL, SAIL, and GRAIL are all then "past tenses" of present conditions.

We then have to break out the roots of the letters, in this case FA, SA, and GRA respective. FA and SA would then (and do) have their own philosophic within the larger Construct, while GRA is an integral part of the larger geometrical and philosophical underpinning of the larger Illuminatus Philosophy.

So if we are in search of our Holy Grail, are we in search of a "past tense of a present condition"?

We must now begin to utilize all the available tools at our disposal. The first step is to solve for the basic word "GRA".

"GRA" means love in Gaelic. That is handy, considering that the "grail" is depicted as a "chalice" or "cup". "Cups" as a symbol have always been equated with "love" or "hearts". Yet we cannot forget that all of this goes back further to being but representations of an "acroamatic cipher". Hence in the creation of the "CUP" as a shape and the "HEART" as a shape, each is independently encoding the same letter, the Letter J.

We are then returning to the idea of "UNION", wherein to make a single person, we must take the letter J (10 as X) as a representation of male and female and combine it with the Letter J (10 as X) as representation of male and female. Thus the HEART as a J+J and the cup as a J mirored on a J are representing the same philosophical construction.

In this form of deconstruction, we are simply utilizing a vast knowledge of Gematria, but Gematria is not complete without the Geometric component. So we delve further into the Illuminatus System and find the following:

This is known as "the 32 Paths according to Gra". If you are patient, everything always starts to come together.

Because the "32 Paths according to Gra" remain a veiled system, for you cannot expect a pure release from a purely Occulted source, you should make the assumption that the paths as depicted have inherent and planned errors. What the "32 Paths according to Gra" properly show is the interlinking hexagons: the paths are scrambled and confused and set to Jewish (Setianists) concepts (a failure point as Osirian systems are not set to Jewish concepts and indeed are opposed to them).

Gematria is the tool used to put the paths into their proper placement.

In Gematria, we have the principal of "5=6". The Letters F and V create the word FiVe, and yet FiVe is located at position number 6 (see the Isisian Codes at the of this page). In the 32 Paths according to Gra, we have correctly the concept of 3-4-3 and the interlinking Hexagons. It is correct that that the depiction shows the interlinking hexagons. What is confused in the 32 Paths according to Gra are the paths themselves, for you must put the "Five" in the 6, or the Pentacle into the Hexagon. Further, the "tree" has to be cut down (becoming a garden) and laid on its side as shown here:

This, of course, is the Vesica Piscis, or the joining of two circles (individual units) into a whole single entity. Philosophical inquiries or foundations from this point can go in many different directions, from worldly pursuits to metaphysical journeys into the astral to metaphysical journeys into the self.

But since the Garden of Eden really says "that which is guarded", as "garden" and "guarded" are the same, we must cover our "Garden of Eden" with a Flaming Sword and Cherub (Cube), to reveal the Golden Branch, or the Philosopher's Stone.

We have completed our quest, as it were, and found our "Holy Gra-il", a geometric representation of the Vesica Piscis, complete with complex archetypal paths that lead one back to "self" and "self realization", a realization that leads one back to an understanding of one's communion and union with the Universe.

English Gematria and the Apperception of the Conceptual

Gematria, by it's very definition, is intricately linked to achieving an apperception of the conceptual. After all, if one of the primary definitions of Gematria is a "system by which hidden truths and meanings are discovered within words", then by virtue of such one should be able to transcend to an apperception of the conceptual.

Gematria, in a very general sense, involves the affixing of Letters to Numbers and to Sounds in an inseparable string. The primary Illuminatus source document regarding this idea is the Book of Formation, also known as "the Sepher Yetzirah":

"In thirty-two mysterious Paths of Wisdom did Jah, the Jehovah of hosts, the God of Israel, the Living Elohim, the King of ages, the merciful and gracious God, the Exalted One, the Dweller in eternity, most high and holy--engrave his name by the three Sepharim --Numbers, Letters, and Sounds."

The conscious comprehension that Numbers are fused to Letters which are further fused to sounds opens immense direct channels to an apperception of the conceptual, but there still remains the physical work and reasoning working with the new found concept such that insights are able to be gathered such that an apperception of the conceptual can be achieved.

The Apperception of the Conceptual

The Apperception of the Conceptual implies a layered ability to penetrate reality. This ability serves as the basic definition of "discovering hidden meanings within words' through the use of Number. In the case of the number 1919, this can be divided into the Letters SS, for S is the 19th Letter of the Alphabet. The idea of the SS is then fused to the very symbol of the Swastika, which in this example is using a rounded outer form.

But with the Apperception of the Conceptual, the Thule Symbol is so rich with nuanced meaning as to defy a rational analysis from traditional academic points of view. For instance, the use of the letters SS, or the double rune Sigurd, was traditionally regarded as a curse to the Germans, substituting the double rune with the elongated "f".

However, as we know that the various mythologies are merely cultural transpositions of the same mythological source, we can trace the parallels in mythology to gain a further comprehension of the Apperception of the Conceptual.

In the case of the Double Rune Sigurd (SS), we can note that the word BI BLE includes a prefix of BI and a root of BLE. Using Gematria, we can show that BLE has values of 2+12+5=19, and hence a BI-BLE would be simply another form of the Double Rune Sigurd, or SS, for BI-BLE = Double S, or SS.

We then seek further into the story of Sigurd and we find that "Years later, with Sinjotli dead, Sigmund remarries in order to carry on the Volsung line; Odin intervenes to take his life before the child is born. The son, named Sigurd, thus inherits all the strength of his father. Reforging Sigmunds sword, he kills the dragon Fafnir" and a curse is laid down.

The parallels allow you to penetrate the Conceptual. The Double Rune Sigurd can be equated to the Father and the Son, for the Father, Sigmund, although dashed, still is able to carry on the line in the form of Sigurd. Thus the SS of the BI-BLE shows a similar parallel. Jesus as the Son is sought to be destroyed before he can rise, but using the remnants of his fathers religion (Judaism), the existing Setian religion of Judaism was able to rise again with the assistance of the son with the intent to destroy European Pagan institutions, themselves heavily influenced by Osiris and Isis systems.

Thus in the diagram above, with the descending sword as pictured, we can infer that the drawing agents were invoking Sigurds reforged sword (S) to become his own (S), and so we have powerful and yet subtle archetypal imagery aimed at the unawares. Further, with the intentional focus of the "1919" as being "SS", fused to the "SS" of the Swastika, the imagery becomes almost oppressive in nature.

These people knew what they were doing, and since the imagery was purely Setian in focus and intent, the negative aspects of the movement could be readily ascertained. That does not mean that power existed to halt the movement and its intentions, but clearly trouble was brewing and we may gain insights into the political agendas of the movements in question through a rational analysis of how current and past symbols were being employed.

Thick as a Brick as an Exercise in the Conceptual

In Morton Smith's "Jesus the Magician", Morton Smith tells of a 3rd century joke whereby Jesus, petulant and self centered, was rejected by his master. Distraught and forlorn, Jesus returned home and worshiped a brick as if it was his master. The idea that Jesus was worshiping a brick, too, finds its way into various Jewish Talmudic texts, whereby we find in Sotah7a,

"Sotah 47a: “Jesus was excommunicated by a Rabbi; Jesus worshipped a brick;
Jesus was a magician and led Israel astray.”"

Of course, the Conceptual is lost if you allow yourself to be led here or there. Nothing is changing. The basic framework remains the SS, or the Double Rune Sigurd. What is changing is a conceptual shift relative to local significance. Jesus as a movement was based on Osirian mysticism, whereby much of what would become the Catholic Church was essentially ripped and modified codes from Osirian Systems.

But it was and remains Setianist at its core yet saving much of the good contained in Osirian systems.

Mathew 34-36

"Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. "For I have come to 'set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law'; and 'a man's enemies will be those of his own household." It's intent was to destroy, but it could not do so without fusing politically and esoteric symbolic formulations already in full use. A compromise would have to be made, and so much of what was Osirian knowledge was able to be preserved in the new found religion.

The seeds of destruction, however, were planted.

By trying to build his foundation on that of "the Father", or Jehovah/Typhon/Seth, Christianity was doomed as a mechanism to bring down Setianism. So Jesus, worshiping a "brick", was just more conceptual foundational material being injected into the material. The "brick" would become "the Wailing Wall".

Sigurd as an S is using the reforged sword of Sigmung the Father as an S and so Jesus as an S is using the "wailing wall", or "brick" as an S. The Thule Society and the SS and the 1919 and the revolving double S Swastika are still the same energetical channels and invoking the same daemonic forces.

Thus we find in Ian Anderson's "Thick as a Brick",

"But your new shoes are worn at the heels and
your suntan does rapidly peel and
your wise men don't know how it feels to be thick as a brick."

Now imagine the armies of Christian missionaries through time who have spread "the Word", even as they so many knew not (but clearly some did) the foundational structure of "the Word"? Is the BRICK simply another manifestation of an Occult and corrupted version of "the Word"?

"See there! A son is born -- and we pronounce him fit to fight.
There are black-heads on his shoulders, and he pees himself in the night.
make a man of him
put him to trade
teach him
to play Monopoly and
to sing in the rain."

The Conceptual is already established. Sigmund and Jesus come to fight, and in the case of Jesus, it became the same monopolistic thought control as was and remains the core of Setian systems. In such systems there is little tolerance for any voice of authority save for the head.

Mathew 37-39 - "He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. {38} "And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. {39} "He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it."

"And the youngest of the family is moving with authority.
Building castles by the sea, he dares the tardy tide to wash them all aside". - Thick as a Brick"

Now imagine the spreading of Missions across the America's and elsewhere, with the awakening of the human spirit being the "tardy tide" meant to wash away these older Piscean systems.

"I've come down from the upper class to mend your rotten ways.
My father was a man-of-power whom everyone obeyed.
So come on all you criminals!
I've got to put you straight just like I did with my old man --
twenty years too late.
Your bread and water's going cold.
Your hair is too short and neat.
I'll judge you all and make damn sure that no-one judges me."

Now imagine the young Christian church. The clue is "your bread and water's going cold", a reference to the rite or ritual of "communion", while the hair being short and neat a reference to the salesman attire of the missionary manners.

And still. Their wise men don't know how it feels to be thick as a brick.

Hermetic Qaballa and the Summative Value of Number

I spend hours and hours in research on this subject, and that is on a daily basis. The reasons are many, but not the least of which is that knowledge and its synthesis tends to be acquired exponentially, even as the mechanism to learning any particular craft begins cumulatively. Without a doubt, such factors to learning applies to acquiring an insight into Hermetic Qaballa.

Hermetic Qaballa is really a Philosophy of Number set against Letters. It is exceptionally complex and beyond the capacity of the untrained and impossible to the unaware, yet Hermetic Qaballa becomes incredibly simple and beautiful to the knowing and aware.

Hermetic Qaballa is predicated upon the basic thesis that Letters are fused to Numbers are fused to Sounds. Each of these elements are inseperable. The properties of number, affixed as they are to archetypical realities, too then are fused to Letters, which too have their archetypal properties.

A comprehensive knowledge (the Apperception of the Conceptual) of this philosophy (Osirian or Speculative Masonry) can only be effected through an exponential component, while still a comprehensive knowledge can be acquired through cumulative processes.

In the cumulative nature of learning, we build upon one idea and move to the next. First there is A and then there is B and then there is C and so forth. A has it's properties and B has it's and so forth. The process is akin to memorizing charts of information while lacking the ability to fuse the constituent parts into a comprehensive system.

This basic element to learning, too, can be abused, and we should take care to note that our Philosophy of Number allows for basic and inherent truths to be discerned free from error providing we understand completely the Construction and the principle behind same. Thus although we may find vast elements of our knowledge fused to Thelema and the Golden Dawn, we recognize that because of certain faults in the foundation, the cumulative knowledge still has it's faults and must be isolated and further refined.

Our interests are not to conjure up ghosts; rather, we seek a comprehensive understanding of reality.

Thus we must build a note upon a note, hearing the A and the C# and the E and then discerning how this is an A Major chord, and so forth. Thus we begin the process of transformational learning, a process which can be viewed as being "exponential" in property.

The Summative Value of Number

In a cumulative nature of learning, we may view the Letters as if they are "Summative Values". The Letter A, for example, has an Ordinal Value of 1, in that its placement in the Alphabet is at position 1. In the Summative Value of a Letter, Letters are added from 1:n (their letter placement in the Alphabet). Hence, B, being placed at position number 2, will have a summative value of 1:2, or 1+2=3.

Since Letters are fused to Numbers are fused to Sounds, we can readily note that the shape of the Letter B is derived or utilizing the glyphs for the concept known as "one" and the concept known as "three". Hence B is comprised of the glyph "1" and the glyph "3", contracted and fused together, hiding as it were its actual mathematical formula that is the basis of its construction.

B = 2 = 1 + 2 = 3

That such a concept is being used in Initiatory Systems should not be questioned by the serious student, but for those who seek some confirmation, the above diagram from Aleister Crowley's "Liber VIII" should show such clear enough. That Crowley was fusing the Summative Value to the Hebrew Letters was perhaps his fatal error or his clever misdirection, but those who read here clear should be under no delusions: the Summative Value is Key to the Design of English and a System based on the 26.

Hence the Letter D, too, can be shown to be derived from or to be utilizing the mathematical formula to arrive at "the Summative Value", or for which Crowley referred to as "mystic numbers".

D = 4 = 1+2+3+4=10

Again, each of these values and numbers have affixed to the a series of archetypal knowledge fused to them, and their combinations, divisions, etc., form a comprehensive Hermetic, or "sealed", knowledge that can really only be ascertained after knowledge becomes acquired "exponentially".

For example, in the Number 10, or the Letter D, we simply turn the glyph 90 left degrees to reveal the Sun as it appears at sunrise or sunset. By simply noting that D turned 90 degrees to the left becomes as the sun as it rises on the HORIZON, we begin the process of exponential learning. Thus the 1 of the D is the "HORIZON" while the O of the D is the Sun itself. Thus the 1 and the O return us to Pi, and further, we can note that the very word HORIZON was a very simple and yet clever code:

H = The Greek Letter Pi
ON = ONe = ONE = 1

Or the Code of H (the Letter Pi) is comprised of the O and the 1 (H ORIZ ON).

Yet it is not possible to see the trandimensional way in which WORDS work unless we have acquired a vast catalogue of data AND we understand the multi-dimensionality of the puzzle called "reality" that lies before us.

Crowley, Thelema, Summative Values, and the Pi Proportion

That much of what is Hermetic Qaballa is really being secreted in Thelema and various works by Crowley and the agents and workers behind the concept that would become Thelema can be readily inferred once one has a firm grasp (to the extent possible) of just what Hermetic Qaballa really is comprised. That PI is integral to the whole of the Illuminatus System (Setian or Osirian)too becomes readily apparent with knowledge of the design. However, much can be inferred through a comprehensive tearing down (destorying) of what became Thelema and the inherent intended corruptions within,

For example, Crowley writes in "The Equinox of the Gods, Chapter 7",

"Now I knew that in the value of the letters of ALHIM, "the Gods," the Jews had concealed a not quite correct value of [pi], the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, to 4 places of decimals: 3.1415; nearer would be 3.1416. If I prefix our Key, 31, putting [sun, moon], Set or Satan, before the old Gods, I get 3.141593, [pi] correct to Six places, Six being my own number and that of Horus the Sun."

Equally, Crowley revealed further the extent to which Summative Values are employed in the Illuminatus System when he stated in the same document,

"and this card is my special card, for I am Baphomet, "the Lion and the Serpent," and 666, the "full number" of the Sun. (The "magical numbers" of the Sun are, according to tradition, 6, (6 x 6)=36, (666 / 111, and [epsilon] (1-36)=666.)"

That CROWLEY would affix the number "666" to himself really is not a big deal if you understood the Summative Value of Letter. In the word CROWLEY, we can infer that the Y is silent (actually the energy is spinning on the Y and so the number of CROWLEY as 666 is a half truth), and so by invoking the Summative Value of Number, we can show the following:

C = 3 = 6
R = 18 = 171
O = 15 = 120
W = 23 = 276
L = 12 = 78
E = 5 = 15


So to people unawares as to the Nature of the Construct and who are easily deceived equally by number (NUMB being a composite reality to NUMBER), in an Initiated System, that CROWLEY was "the Beast" as his number was "666" could be seen as a literal truth invoking a series of rules to the larger Craft.

Further, Crowley essentially gives away the actual core of the Illuminatus System in that he speaks of the 6, the 66 (6x6=36), and the 666. Yet in spite of sometimes insightful genius, Crowley utterly fails to deal specifically with the Design and the Construct, preferring as it were to change it to fit some Daemon rather than elevate the truth.

Thus Crowley was obviously a Setian agent and on the dark side of the Illuminatus System and so the study of his work can only be useful to a limited degree.

Examples of Summative Values in Language

There are many words that utilize the Summative Value.

The most obvious is the word SUN, where S can be shown in the Isisian Codes to have a value of 3 and N a value of 5. Thus the Summative Value of 6 is 21, and 21 is the U Letter, and so SUN = 3(Sum of 1:)65, or the number of days that the Earth takes to orbit the SUN. The Letter U, being placed at the Summative Value of 6, is often equated to a 6 in many a word.

Another Summative Code is the word INRI from the JESUS set of mythologies.


I+N+R+I = 45+105+171+45 = 366, or another number indicative of the Sun.

Obviously, in a blog of this nature, all that can provided is a flavor for what is really going on in the fabrication of concepts and ideas around numbers and sounds, but I trust this article will provide further insights into the nature of the Construct and will assist the interested to gain an appreciation for what is the apperception of the conceptual.
