One of the best ways to begin scientific enquiry into magickal phenomena is through the same way as has been done from the dawn of humanity, which is by learning from the animals themselves. All the different species and their unique characteristics convey the natural sciences in their variety of evolved features, including electricity and bio-luminescence in eels, fire-flies and fish, the aero-dynamics of birds and insects, the martial armor of the turtle and beetles and the tactics of the ants, bees, etc. Many of our traditions as humans reflect those of the animals and insects who we take for granted, including the building of mound-like monuments, hive-shaped Capitol buildings, and underground tunnels like the ants who somehow instinctively 'know' what to do, and follow single-file down the invisible path to carry out The Great Work.
In a Shamanic sense, each animal is a totemic emanation of the Godhead embodying the specific elemental qualities it represents. The Egyptian tradition shows this particularly well, and Aleister Crowley notes in Chapter XII of Part III, Magick In Theory and Practice of Liber ABA, on the Bloody Sacrifice, that each animal of course can be fitted into the correspondence-patterns of the Qabalistic Tree of Life and its Sephiroth and Paths. From this single map alone can be found the underlying patterns of many legends and religious myths involving various animals and the qualities which they represent. These animal spirits are manifestations of the same forces to be absorbed and utilized by the Shaman, or Magus, and therefore represent aspects of the Universe in its denser aspect known as the plane of Assiah (Material World) to which the Neschamah (Animal Soul) is relegated, the Sphere of Malkuth in which all the higher and subtler forces of all the paths and Spheres coagulate into the 'pantacle' or 'disk' of the perceived crystallization of manifestation ('Earth').
|ESU (71), the voodoo trickster/devil|
In Mayan mythology, the 'devil' and supreme death-god was conceived of as a subterranean vampire called Camazotz, who lived in the House of Bats or 'Zotzilaha' (from the root zotzil, 'bat'), an analog to the legend of the 'pit' of Hades, Hell, or Sheol. The bat is of course related to the Vampire, whose symbolism alone can and has taken up many volumes, and also carries the magickal characteristic of seeing or hearing in the dark (i.e. occult vision), and relates to the Tarot card of The Hanged Man, who both hangs upside-down (symbolic of the reflection of the waters of darkness or the subterranean/subconscious) along with the obvious relation to Blood (Mem, Water). Again, in the chapter Of the Bloody Sacrifice, Crowley explains the magickal relevance of the Blood as the Life-Force. The undefined quality of which he hints, and which modern science has still yet to even begin to understand, i.e. the Plasma-Light Body which activates and inhabits the material body, is of course the same Astral Light described in the Chapter on The Magical Link. This force has been known of under different names by every religious and mystical tradition and is the actual Magickal Force of all manifestation - so clear and pure as to be nearly imperceptible, if it weren't for the fact it is the complete fabric and substance of all materialization.
This all-pervading and omnipotent force is of course THE WHITE LIGHT (111) of Kether descending in its tri-form rays to formulate the dimensional matrix to manifest its infinite beauty, and through the Prism it rays to create the rainbow-antahkarana coagulating into Being. (As the legend goes, there is a pot of Gold at the end of the Rainbow.) The Nine Worlds or Planes of various world Universe myths correspond to the 9 numbers, and particularly the Nine Chambers of Qabalah (111-222-333-444-555-666-777-888-999) which contain the Secret Wisdom of each. They each represent the manifestation or externalization of the spiritual or internal hierarchy of the Micro- and Macrocosms of Mind and Matter. In thus reviving this wisdom in the year 2012 (See Words) it is ironic that I have established a veritable link between all extant traditions and re-activating them, including the Ancient Egyptian, Hebrew, Greek, Eastern, Mayan and Native American traditions - all of which seem to have either intuitively ascertained this wisdom without the advantage of being able to cross-check and connect with all others. Now, the matter is largely ignored by both occult and magick researchers and practitioners as well as scientists, anthropologists and historians. Modernity has seemed to sever the living link between those 'living' and those who have lived, but only for those who have lost the spiritual guidance and life-style, which can still be recovered.
Though the Illusion has been shattered, the knowledge of Life and Death when ascertained, shows us that neither is to really be held on to or feared, to be alive for eternity would be a hellish eternal death of its own sorts, and to be eternally resting is already occurring and yet still - here we are. The light must shine in the darkness, and truly there is no actual darkness for that which is not is nothing, and therefore even for 'empty' space to instill distance between its contents implies that emptiness to be an indication of our lack of sensory apprehension thereof rather than any literal 'emptiness' we might easily like to ascribe.The mythology of the Light and Dark are naturally involved in every tradition as well, as they go back to the very act of seed germination and the biological functions of plant and animal life. It should not be that difficult to see that both are necessary, as in every story without the problem to be overcome, the abyss to be crossed, or the villain to be defeated, there is no story.
In every hero-legend, there is usually a young aspirant who has either some unattainable goal or an unforseen but 'coincidental' event that forces him to put himself through a series of obstacles to obtain the necessary strength and discipline to strategically obtain this goal or find some 'answer' which will provide him with the Key to the Kingdom. There is also accordingly, usually a series of further obstacles every course of the way, without which he would never obtain the necessary strength to reach the goal or successfully handle the Key. Sometimes, this even results in the loss of all else in the process rendering the goal to seem unworth the means, or the Key useless when the Kingdom has already been sold or destroyed. Thus, the burden of the Goal is understood generally to have been shrouded and kept far off for the reason, not to be attained - but aspired toward, and the Story is regenerated when recounted as a dream or legend to the next of kin.
Every ancient tradition also has a form of the 'alien', or xenos, 'stranger'. Even in the Egyptian Tradition, Set - the god of chaos and confusion, was never specifically relegated as any specific type of animal, and generally chimerical, sometimes called the 'Set animal', or Sha. He was sometimes represented as an unknown type of jackal, relating to the general view of that animal as a trickster type. In any case, the ALIEN is a type of THE BEAST, although, not of the Neschamah/Assiah realm, but of the Daathian/Uranian sort which is alien, or strange to the known System. Distinction between the various 'races' and types of aliens and spiritual beings has been severely muddled, but through understanding the basic levels of manifestation much can be rather cleared up. To each Sephiroth or Sphere is relegated a choir of Angels, which represent the 'Light' or Day-side (Positive) forces of Manifestation, the 'angles' of form. The 'demons' would be the 'fallen' or dark-side, i.e. the subconscious and reverse-aspects of these, known as the Qliphoth or shells.0

The Spheres of the pillars help to balance and give energetic quality to these fundamental elements. The middle pillar, however, is the primary Magickal Link or Astral Thread which is only to be utilized when the center of Tiphareth has been attained (known as the Knowledge and Conversation with the Holy Guardian Angel). Until this has been attained any attempts to communicate with anything beyond oneself will be either useless or detrimental. The glass ceiling of Daath can only be transcended through the Hidden Light, which is not trapped by space-time. For this reason it is also useless to ask for physical 'proof' of spiritual phenomena, as it is intended to be apprehended on its own plane, though on occasions we may catch a glimpse of breaches in the matrix and kinks in the web, but usually only for a short time. It is the entire premise of Magick that the outward superficial level of reality is to be changed through the knowledge of its internal and underlying formulae.
The Ancient Mayans and Egyptians didn't worship the Serpent as such, the revered the underlying essence that the Serpent symbolically embodied. In a similar but opposite way, Christians don't fear snakes as such, so much as they fear the knowledge it represents - which with one drop of its antivenin would destroy much of its falsity, though also prove much of the wisdom it contained to be essentially correct in the sense that children's fables are not 'true', but the truths which they embody nevertheless convey. 666, for example, as I have shown is QUETZLCOATL, the SERPENT OF THE MAYANS - which is the same as that of the Biblical GENESIS SERPENT MYTH. Incidentally, I am part Sioux Native American, and the tribe's name means 'little snake', and their symbol known as the Medicine Wheel is that of the 'Mark of the Beast', or the ⊗, which is a form of THE SWASTIKA coagulated together as the elements to form Manifestation. This symbol represents also the Gate of Matter, and The Devil tarot card is also known as Lord of the Gates of Matter, i.e. Maya.
I have already written extensively on the subject of Alien Disclosure (see Visions of the Past, Transmissions from the Future, The Silent Calling, and Clearing the Airwaves.) It should be apparent that for higher dimensional experiences and information to be relevant it must be grasped on its own level. Too much confusion comes from the confusion of the planes and the need by the uninitiated for 'physical proof' or evidence of non-physical or meta-physical phenomena without taking the necessary steps to be able to apprehend it effectively. Three dimensional limitations and being caught in the current of Chronos does not easily allow for transdimensional and timeless states or information, but through cultivation of the Astral Body these obstacles may be overcome. The boundary between the Astral or Diamond Body and the Ego is distinguished over the course of the beginning mainly, but throughout Initiation. This is the Plasma-body alluded to by Crowley in the Chapter on Blood which science has still yet to quantify in physical terms because it is much like trying to measure a dream-building with a physical tape measure. The state in between Waking, Dreaming and Deep-Sleep (void) has been discussed throughout this publication, and with heavy references to The Mauve Zone of Kenneth Grant, the fourth state of being associated with Daath on the Tree of Life and the Final Hé or Daughter aspect of Tetragrammaton, and of course the 'fourth state of matter' (Plasma) and the 'fourth dimension', generally attributed as Time. It is through the opening of this Gateway in the 4 Worlds of Creation that the Double-Window of the receptive Hé is opened that the hatch in the egg is opened for ingress and egress of transdimensional data.
As Crowley notes, the Aura or Body of Light (i.e Astral Double, Astral Body, Diamond Body, Rainbow Body etc.) is the true source of power for the Magickal weapons and ceremonies. It is THE CIRCLE itself, which is the source and field of the ELECTRIC power of 666, i.e. the Star or ASTER (Sol), THE COSMIC FIRE. This is rayed prismatically from the Egg (O), which is also one with The Crown of Kether and its 3 rays beginning with ALPh, 111 (Aleph), the Fool who is also the 0, who 'falls' into manifestation, and through the full cycle or circuit of initiation becomes the Magician who is 1, I, but also Beth, which is two. Beth is the House, the habitation or Temple (i.e. the Body and environment).
THE WHITE LIGHT (111) of the Aura reflects outwardly - the Eye of the Dragon of Daath looks inward as well as outward, projecting the Mask of Malkuth, ego, or the formulation of IDENTITY (=107, the crystallization of BITzH, 'egg', THE MAGICK EGG through Γιογκα, 'Yoga'.)
222, being the reflection of the Inner Light against itself is ATMAN SAMADHI, the Self-Samadhi or Self-Realization which becomes apparent as DRAVYA, 'substance', or 'composition'. 222 is also the formula of DHYANIPASA, the divine rope or veil (ring pass not) between the phenomenal world and noumenal cosmos. 333, the next chamber in the index represents the three main TIME-STATIONS of the KALACHAKRA WHEEL. It is THE TIME LOOP of the HIGGS BOSON which is the fundamental element of the thread of the fabric of reality, which Kenneth Grant called S'LBA, a resolution of self and not-self in a third, neither-neither - which generates altogether 'alien' formulae in their combination and conquering, generating a vacuum or vortex, as it were.
333 being also the root or reduction of 'Sigil' as SGL, and the formula of that mode by which it is said to be most effective in which to perform a SIGIL IMPLANT into the akasha by way of the subconscious, i.e. to MASTURBATE, with the objected aim being that through such stimulation the 'sigil' of your Willed formula becomes not only engrained, but also energized as a sort of battery for the vacuum or vortex to alter the prism and its projection accordingly. Thus it is the GATEKEEPER of the 3 time and mind-zones, and the boundaries of the various levels of manifestation. Being also 'GROUND', it is where the three triads of the Tree ground out into outward form.
555 is the middle chamber, and thus can be thought of like the King's Chamber in which THE COFFIN was placed, apparently not for any actual deceased mummy but most likely for the symbolic MASONIC ILLUMINATION of going into the Amenta for a period and being resurrected in Spirit, and then again in the material world. 555 is the LUCIFIERIAN INITIATION of the Fallen or Sleeping Light of the Soul, which according to legend was the Cornerstone of Creation and the Highest Angel or Angle. 555 is THE NIGHTSIDE OF EDEN, the obverse side of the Tree called the Sitra Ahra or Tree of Death. In Qabalah, Qliphoth and Goetic Magic, a chapter is given about the nature of 5 being concomitant with the forces of the separation from the original Unity to give way for Creation, and though this fracture of the FRACTALS has generated A QUANTUM UNIVERSE, the true QUANTUM PARTICLE of the 0 is merely the manifestation of Nuit in the expansion of HAD (HE=10 + ALPh=111 + DLTh=434 = 555). "HAD! The Manifestation of Nuit."
666 is THE CIRCLE of THE COSMIC FIRE of the Magickal Child of Nuit and Hadit manifested as the Solar Intelligence, SVRTh (Sorath) and as the numerous Light-bearers among men on Earth. 666 is the Immortal Soul known in Thelemic terms as the Ever-Coming One, who has both a positive or active aspect, as well as a negative-passive aspect as Horus and Set, or Harpocrates. The integration and balance of these forces helps to balance the entire Ruach and Middle Pillar, and thus Malkuth or Manifestation directly. The source of much of the SORROWS in manifestation arise from a blockage and/confusion of the Sephiroth and the inability to even see beyond Malkuth, which requires a necessary looking inward. Beyond the mental imagery of Yesod, and the self-nature of Tiphareth through the reflecting pool of Daath, past the Ugly Statue of Kether from the egg of infinity only leads back around to the same center all at once but in different stages and in their own planes of densification. 666, being the Key of the Keys to the Abyss is thus the key to all power in all reality constructs operative in its crystalline mainframe. Being THE AKASHIC RECORDS, it is the LIBRARY CARD to all Knowledge of Daath.
777 comes together to form the Antahkarana Ruach-Rainbow, as the Sephiroth on the Tree of Life that comprise the Ruach are all the colored ones, excluding Malkuth which is basically a synthesis of all the above/inner Spheres. Being that it is OVLM HQLIPhVTh, The Wolrd of Shells (The Qliphoth) it is also the forces of the Nightside or subconscious as well, and thus the BROKEN SHELLS which are said to be used for the recreation of the universe after its last destruction form IN DIGITAL (Nun final) the QABALAH OF MANIFESTATION, THE VAST EXPANSE of THE LIGHT WORLD (i.e. reflections, or shells). Magickally, our body is our Temple and altar on the physical plane, and our Astral Body is our shamanic space-ship, your our magickal egg which Crowley gives Liber O as a treatise. 777 also contains THE MAGICIAN'S KEYS of GEMATRIA KEYS & FORMULAS as it is THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF GEMATRIA CODES which Crowley began and I have expanded upon with Greek and other formulas which all retain their own consistency as well as correspond uniquely with each other. Whereas 666 is the Key of THE EVOLUTION of Man, i.e. THE HOMO SAPIEN EVOLUTION, the next link in the evolutive sequence of the chambers as 777 is THE PROOF OF EVOLUTION.
888 is a formula of THE AKASHIC EGG OF MAAT and THE AZOTh, the Astral Fluid which formulates manifestation. Being also Ιησους, Jesus and Ηαρποκρατης, Harpocrates it represents the dual aspect of the 444 cross of the ELEMENTS in the Chaos Star-Stone of THE GLOBED PRIEST. The Ogdoadic Zone is also related to Daath counting up from Malkuth, and known as the false Crown which is presided over by Abraxas in the Gnostic tradition - THE GNOSTIC DEMIURGE. The Sword of Light(ning) and the Serpent of Wisdom are both necessary elements, as Jesus said he came not to bring peace but a sword, and to be wise as serpents, essentially Gnostic 'Luciferian' keys to illumination via THE DOUBLE POWER of THE DOUBLE-WAND OF COPH NIA, the balanced dual-contending forces Micro/Macro-Inward/Outward MANIFESTATION.
999 being technically the highest chamber of the traditional Qabalah of nine chambers is thus, significantly, The Key in Hebrew spelled in full (Mem=90 + Pe=85 + Tau=406 + Cheth=418 = 999), the fullness or Pleroma of Περιαγω, 'Perfection' - Ο Απορρητος, 'The Secret' and Το Αρρητον, 'Unspeakable', 'Inexpressible' Κοσμικος Σοπηια, 'Cosmic Wisdom', which is just beyond and between the numeric chambers or cells, but which they act as information condensers for. 999 being the 'full' circle is thus THE ALIGNMENT and reparation of the 666/Beast-Man in THE HIGHER POWER of THE TRUE SPIRIT beyond but within the Material form. Thus, 999 is THE SUBTLE BODY willed into Manifestation, as 999 being the Key of The Key is THE NUMBER OF THE KEY OF IT ALL. MANIFESTATION & PERFECTION (=999) are the Key word-formulas of what Frater Achad termed 'THE AEON OF TRUTH AND JUSTICE', which he said was made known to him in a 'lesser cycle' he also termed THE INCOMING OF THE AEON OF MAAT', both of which are also 999. Before knowing any of this I happened to take an oath of self-initiation on September 9, 2009 and then had an experience after I decided to buy an obsidian egg for no apparent reason other than that it intrigued me, when just beginnng to read the books of Kenneth Grant (particularly Outside the Circles of Time) that I realized the very date I chanced to 'obtain the GOLD (107) egg without haggling' was April 2, 2011 - right before the 107th year of the Aeon of Horus, and the number of the Egg of MA-ION Achad prophesized in 1948 on the same date. This talisman has thus served to open The Gateway of Initiation further for an influx of the Maatian tide of trans- and hyper-dimensional forces, formulae and data for the advancement of human and organic transhuman (as opposed to synthetic transhuman) development.
