|Integrae Naturae Speculum Artisque Imago |
(Mirror of the Whole of Nature, and the Image of Art) by Robert Fludd, 1617
The Circle was given 360° by the Babylonians who used a sexigesimal (base 60) mode of reckoning which we still carry on today despite our use of a decimal (base 10) mode for most other things. The number 360 is gematria value of the 21st Hebrew letter Shin in full which is attributed to Fire and means 'Tooth', or 'Sharp', representing the destructive forces of time and change. Shin is actually the root of the word שנוי, meaning 'Change'. The three main 'vav' looking parts of Shin represent the 3 apparent states/directions of Time and Space, and as the Fire of Spirit it is the Triple Flame at the heart of Matter extending as space-time-energy. (Note that the basic value of Shin is 300, equating its power with רוח אלהים, Ruach Elohim, The Life-Breath of the Creative Powers or 'Spirit of God', the פניקס, Phoenix which eternally regenerates itself.) As a symbol of the crystallization of Spirit into Tau (matter/earth) ShIN represents the original SIN of the 'Fall' of the Spiritual Spark as an ember of the Source into the material plane stemming from the need expansion and transmutation (change, i.e. Magick).
The Fall implies the first line of descent, the 180° angle which represents THE AXIS of the Circle. 180 is also the number of HELIOS, a name of the Sun which is the brightest circle seen by man and by whose light he measures all other celestial phenomena. If you divide the Circle of 360 again at another 180° you obtain the Cross or Mark of the Beast symbol signified by 'X', the letter which signifies the four 90° angles and also itself has a value of 90 as Tzaddi. At a 90 angle from the ground is the SKY, the zone of Helios' rulership. Adding another 90° to The Axis of 180 gives 270, the number of the STAR and THE CIRCLE itself showing that he Path of the Circle itself is created along the revolution of the stellar pathway of the Great Circle of 360°. Circles are the basic stellar pattern of radiation and being 3 parts of the full circle, 270 being THE TRIKAYA (The 'Three Bodies') of THE TATHAGATAGARBHA (The 'Buddha-Matrix') and corresponding to THE OPhANIM ('The Wheels') of THE K'RLA cell/THE VRIHL (The full chakra system, k'rla essentially meaning circle or wheel, i.e. Kalachakra. Vrihl being the substance of plasma.) The three bodies are the Physical, Mental/Intellectual (Ruach) and Spritual (Supernal) levels of Being. Tathāgatagarbha means "the womb" or "embryo" (garbha) of the "thus-gone" (tathagata), or "containing a tathagata". 270 is yet also THE PSYCHIC O, the buddha-matrix ophanim of ער, Aur 'Light'. ער reversed as רע is 'Darkness', 'Evil', the last 90° being related to the lefthand of the Tree and the darkness of Binah whose Understanding gives discernment between Lux and Nox (Tenebrae) through the perspective angle.
The role of the Circle in Magick is of great value being the central symbol of which most ceremonial and even low magickal rituals are based upon. The Circle is generally attributed to the Goddess or feminine aspect of Nature, but it is both and neither male/female, it could equally be said to represent Nuit, Hadit, and Heru-Ra-Ha. It symbolizes the vast and unmeasurable expansion of the body of Nuit and the center of Hadit which is omnipresent throughout it, and the creative explosion at their event-act in Horus, the Son-Sun. Thus, 360 as a value of THE SELF is of prime importance being as it is indicative of the magician's circle of protection from Qliphothic forces from beyond, one of the primary usages of A MAGICKAL CIRCLE via banishing. (Note that HORUS = 341, the value of the 3 Mother Letters, Aleph, Mem and Shin which formulate the 3 dimensional rays. Taken as a metathesis, THE HOURS then correlate to the clock of 360. The Veil of the Circle of the Self is the same Veil of Isis spoken of by Blavatsky and others which when rended admit forces wholly other into the zone of being. It is for this reason that it is significant then that the Hebrew שטנ, Satan, the Prince of Darkness and Chaos is valued at 359, the broken circle. Satan represents the fallen Light of the Soul which has disconnected from its source, the beginning and the end defunct. The Lost Word or Key then is the singular Aleph (The Self) which when placed in the slot bridges the gap of the Missing Cornerstone, the Stone fallen as lightning from Heaven. (Note that the Hebrew 'Cornerstone' פנה לראש is 666.)

The magickal significance of the Circle in regards to practical ritual is quite mundane and basic, repetition is practice and practice makes perfect, or at least better. Reenactments, calculated proceedings, daily and nightly routines, habits and behavior patterns - they all go to create the overall quality of mental and physical environment, therefore the modulation of these factors will greatly adjust the output and feedback. The Circle is the Portal, or A PORT or PORTA rather, meaning "gateway" in Old English port "portal, door, gate, entrance," from Old French porte "gate, entrance," from Latin porta "city gate, gate; door, entrance". The portal is to any possible point in space-time, much as the 0 which is everywhere and nowhere - the Eye of Amun. The Mirror of the Seer, or the MIRRORED SEER which conversely is 999 (the pleroma of the 0) reflects the Infinity in the 0, and in the process 0=2 becomes 0³, bringing it back to the original 000, or Ain-Soph-Aur.
Though the 0 is an oval, and the circle is 360 degrees, the 360th degree is also the 0 point, and the fact that 107 is the number of so many various connections to the 0, (I.e. OVAL, THE MAGICK EGG, BITzH 'egg', MA-ION, Μηδεν 'Zero', etc.) shows that the FINAL HE of Tetragrammaton, which is attributed to the dark daughter aspect (implying the shape of the Diamond and all its significance, see The Diamond of Perfection) is aligned with THE AKASHA, itself an ancient analog of the idea of 'Plasma', the 'fourth state of matter' equated with THOUGHT itself. Remember also that 107 is the formula of the AB (Father), AIMA (Mother), BN (Son) triad, which veils the Daughter as the encompasser and precipitator of the matrix of manifestation (the fourth dimension). This could also be figured as Yang (+) and Yin (-) and their counterparts the Yang aspect of Yang and the Yin aspect of Yin, balanced in the Yang of Yin/Yin of Yang which is Balance. THE TAO CIRCLE of 360 is the Golden Flower of Chinese mysticism composed of the light of consciousness and centered not in one singular place but distributed more or less evenly in 360 around each of the 3 dimensional planes. (Note that 360 extended into 3 dimensions is 1,080, which when centered with a point gives 1,081, the number of תפארת, Tiphareth and a form more akin to the Sphere rather than the Circle with the Point at its center.) The Egg/Circle of Light is thus the Golden Flower of Beauty with Sahasrara as the upper flower portion, and Muladhara the lower root portion.
107 and 360 are connected in yet another way via the Frater Achad in his role as conduit for the Incoming of the Aeon of Maat. Amalantrah gave Achad the title of ARKTION in the The Amalantrah Working which has the value of 360 and he was also told along with Crowley to find the Egg, which Achad did in 1948 on his birthday, April 2, when he realized that the 107 of BITzH veils the MA-ION in AL.I.1 and AL.I.66. He also noted that 107 (the Egg) + 150 (the Nest, קנ) equate to MANIFESTATION (O taken as Vav, which is sometimes customary in Hebrew transliteration, whence the value of MA-ION as 107, or 821 when in full with Ayin, particular caveats that don't allow for much but particular nuances.) the 13-fold formula which he took to be indicative of the Manifestation, not of Nuit, but the daughter-aspect - Maat, with her dark side Maut. (Note MAAT + MAUT=107=NU-MAAT, the space of space or the space behind/beyond space which is the continuum/menstruum of Nu-Isis, i.e. the radiations from beyond Pluto/Uranus, or the pylon of Universe 'A'.)
|Note that 438 is the number of PERFECTION, which when added to MANIFESTATION (using the flame of Shin) totals 999, the value of THE AEON OF TRUTH AND JUSTICE as well as THE INCOMING OF THE AEON OF MAAT. |
2015 is THE YEAR OF THE AEON OF MAAT, (Note Gematrix cannot calculate Final values, Nun final is 700, so instead of 1365 subtract 50 and add 700 - or memorize the values and learn to see the values in words themselves.) the 111th year of the Aeon of Horus and the year in which this Gnosis is being revealed in full by The Child of Liber AL, M.A.L., with the 107GOLD Key.

666-2. the Children of Isis will attend.
The Children of Isis attended in the tangential sense described in Against the Light and in Hecate’s Fountain. The Oracle resumes the Satanic Trinity of Typhon, Apophis, Besz – the Forces of the Sethian Current which are brought through into terrestrial manifestation from a non-human source represented by The Beast (ThRIVN) = 666. The ‘Seeress, pythoness’, or ‘Scarlet Woman’, AShH ShNI, also = 666. That this is identical with the primal current dedicated to the Goddess is confirmed in that the weight of the gold that came to Solomon in a single year [I.e., in one Circle of Time.] was six hundred threescore and six. 666 is a devotee of the Goddess; ‘he is anti-god’ (antitheos est.). Begley [See Begley, Biblia Cabalistica.] notes that of the 3,125 nouns in the New Testament, ΕΥΠΟΡΙΑ alone = 666. The euporia were the ‘ill-gotten gains of Demetrius, who made shrines of silver for the goddess Diana’, showing thus the abhorrence in the devotees of the primal Goddess were held by the later adherents of a paternalistic society. The number of the Primal Goddess is 5 = HA = 6 (see Comment to 776/26). The ancient Greek qabalists maintained that 666 denoted the quality of materialisation (5), or manifestation, appertaining to the Solar Divinity (6), ΟΣΕΡΑΠΙΣ and ΤΕΙΤΑΝ (Grk.), each having the value 666. But of paramount importance here is the fact that 666 expresses the sum of the numerical series 1 – 36, and that 36 represents the Sapphire Stone symbolic of the Aeon of Maat, the Perfect Stone of the Perfect Ion, or Perfection (see Comment to next verse). It is further significant that the ‘concubine offspring of Leah and Rachel’ = 666. Both these names are revived in the magico-mystical drama of Crowley (666), and of Helen Vaughan whose companion was named Rachel. [See Machen, The Great God Pan.] Both women were ‘Children of Isis’. The Great Circle of 360 degrees is explained in the next verse.
667-3. They came through the intersections of the web, and between the twilight zone and the junctions of the Great Circle.
The Satanic Triad (see Comment to previous verse) manifests through the ‘5 which is 6’, i.e., via H KOKKINH ΓYNH (667), ‘The Scarlet Woman’. She brings the 3 and the 6, the full circle (360˚), via the Stone or Egg (O) of perfection – the Perfect-Ion and the MÅ-ION, represented by the Star Sapphire. “The twilight zone and the junctions of the Great Circle” refers to the network of marmas and sandhyas which lace the trikonas of the Sri Chakra. [See Grant, Beyond the Mauve Zone, chapters 3, 4, and 5, for explanation of this and other Tantric terms.] The verse number is key to the central formula pertaining to Sri Tripurasundari who is the Beauteous Goddess represented by the Sri Chakra.
The connection with the Sri Chakra is important being as it is a yantra of the Universe, at whose marmas or intersections flow the kalas of Nu-Isis to regenerate the world with each cosmic pulsation. Between the degrees, or 'intersections of the web' between the 'twilight zone' (twilight is the between-state of day and night, or waking and dream, i.e. the Mauve Zone) come through the 'Children of Isis', figured as beetles (Kephra, the subconscious) who carry the solar orb rays into conscious manifestation. The O as the Stone or Egg of Perfection thus manifested in physical form on April 2nd, 2011 - the 107th year of the Aeon of Horus - as a totemic omen of the revival of the Maatian Current and the precision of 'co-incidence' is too much to deny, but the 'co-incidence' is beside the many points that have been brought into view as a result. That the Current is still active and unfolding should be apparent and those who Will to participate shall receive their signs in time as well if they still have yet to. The concepts presented here are intended to be gateways, be it the Egg, the Mirror, the Diamond, etc. and the O is another cognate symbol through which deep contemplation and meditation can yield such signs and/or epiphanies.
