Immanent Kaaba of Liber AL
“Fear not at all; fear neither men not Fates, nor gods, nor anything. Money fear not, nor laughter of the folk folly, nor any other power in heaven or upon the earth or under the earth. Nu is your refuge as Hadit your light; and I am the strength, force, vigour, of your arms.” TBOTL III:17
66 very important symbols between those quotes!
66 + 51 = 117
Tetrahedronal energies multiplied by 6.
19.5 x 2 = 39
39 x 3 = 117
19.5 x 6 = 117
Kaaba is the name of “House of Allah”.
The famous Kaaba and the black stone in Mecca. Kaaba, in Arabic, means the "cube" and also "a shape that emerges"
“We are all born with six fundamental orientations: front and back, left and right, up and down. They are the three pairs that make up the three dimensions that we can tell with our eyes closed. Which is why we have three semi-circular canals in our inner ear, which are responsible for our sense of balance, and we move our heads along the same three planes. These planes are arranged at right angles to each other along the x-, y- and z-coordinate axes that we studied in school. There is something else we were taught in school: that there are only five possible symmetrical solids in the universe. A symmetrical solid is one that is made up of similar faces that meet each other at the same angle: in the whole Universe, there are only five ways of doing that! Plato discussed them in the Timaeus and hence they are also called Platonic bodies. The Greeks named them after the number of faces (or hedrons) they had. Hence they ranged from the minimal four-faced tetrahedron to the 12-faced dodecahedron. Because there is no solid beyond the dodecahedron, it was regarded by astronomer al-Biruni as a symbol of the universe. Midway in the Platonic series occurs what the Greeks called the hexahedron (the six-faced solid), which in English we call the cube and in Arabic, the Kaaba. Of the fundamental five Platonic solids, it is only the cube that has six faces which face the same three pairs of orientations that are intrinsic to us: front and back; left and right; up and down. Hence at the centre of the fundamental solids that make up the universe, we have one that is uncannily anthropomorphic.”
The Book of the Law, also says:
“Change not as much as the style of a letter; for behold! Thou, o prophet, shalt not behold all these mysteries hidden therein.” Liber AL vel Legis I:54.
This has nothing to do with Crowley’s quick comment. There is another reason for not changing ‘as much as the style of a letter’. I shall reveal the ‘mysteries hidden therein’.
Chapter three says ‘get thee the Stele of Revealing’. Of course Crowley assumes, as many do that this is the Stele Rose pointed out at the musuem in Cairo in 1904. And getting that is important, as you shall see, because of verse 14 in Chapter 1, is transcribed from the Stele.
But other than that, I see the Stele of Revealing somewhat like a Rosetta stone. I say the Rosetta stone, the Stele of Revealing is the Book of the Law itself.
In fact, imo, verse 76, of chapter II, of Liber L, states is all succinctly:
“4 6 3 8 A B K 2 4 A L G M O R 3 Y X 24 89 R P S T O V A L
What meaneth this, o prophet? Thou knowest not; nor shalt thou know ever. There cometh one to follow thee: he shall expound it. But remember, o chosen one, to be me; to follow the love of Nu in the star-lit heaven; to look forth upon men, to tell them this glad word.”
9 numbers, 11, depending on how you look at it.
“The child of thy bowels, he shall behold them. Expect him not from the East, nor from the West; for from no expected house cometh that child. Aum! All words are sacred and all prophets true; save only that they understand a little; solve the first half of the equation, leave the second unattacked. But thou hast all in the clear light, and some, thogh not all, in the dark.” Liber AL vel Legis I: 55-56 No expected house, no expected Kaaba. Not from the East or the West. I am that child. I am not from any house. The house or the Kaaba is The Book of the Law, itself, and this is why the letters cannot be changed in any way or style. This is why I cannot be from that house. The house comes to me, as you will see, the temple opens up and reveals itself.
I am not even sure if Crowley did solve the first half, tho his work on Liber Trigrammaton might be that work, as R. Gillis has pointed out. I mention R. Gillis work here, because I think it is excellent, and fits well with what I am about to reveal.
“Commentary on Liber Trigrammaton and TBOTL, the Book of Mutations is a study of Liber Trigrammaton, which A. Crowley called "the foundation of the highest theoretical qabalah." The Trigrams of this Holy Book comprise all the numbers from 0 to 26, written in Base 3 notation. These form the 26 components of the Cube of Space as 13 pairs of opposites, and are the basis for a streamlined explanation of the Hermetic tradition. Astrology, tarot, magic squares, divination, and I Ching are also examined. Crowley's attribution of English letters to the Trigrams is explored in depth, in order to establish the Trigrammaton English Qabalah, or TEQ, based upon the new paradigm of Base 3 mathematics.“
There are other excellent solutions to verse 76, like John Farthing’s Toavotea Key, and some excellent Numerology systems to look at this like Mars Kamea, by Frater RIKB, and my own Chance Shape, Double Wanded One, and other various numerologies.
So if we take Liber L as the Kaaba, verse 76 solution is found within the book, and this is why we are not to change style or letter.
There are three answers, taking into account the three chapters, but much deeper, the meaning of the 3 hidden ordeals, and the 3 in 1 ordeals spoken of in TBOTL:
“The the priest fell into a deep trance or swoon, & said unto the Queen of Heaven: Write unto us the ordeals; write unto us the rituals; write unto us the law! But she said: the ordeals I write not; the rituals shall be half known and half concealed: the Law is for All. This that thou writest is the threefold book of Law.” Liber AL vel Legis I:33-35
“Who call us Thelemites will do no wrong, if he look but closely into the word. For therein Three Grades, the Hermit, and the Lover, and the man of Earth. Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.” Liber AL vel Legis I:40
“There is great danger in me; for who doth not understand these runes shall make a great miss. He shall fall down into the pit called Because, and there he shall perish with the dogs of Reason.” Liber AL vel Legis II:27
This book is the core of understanding the Immanent/Transcendent aspects of Thelema. The gnosis is beyond reason. This is what Scientific Illuminism is all about.
“Nor shall they who cry aloud their folly that thou meanest nought avail; thou availest: they are the slaves of because. They are not of me. The stops as thou wilt; the letters? Change them not in style or value!
Thou shalt obtain order & value of the English Alphabet; thou shalt find new symbols to attribute them unto.” Liber AL vel Legis II:54-55
“Aborgate are all rituals, all ordeals, all words and signs. Ra-Hoor-Khuit hath taken his seat in the East at the Equinox of the Gods; and let Asar be with Isa, who also are one. But they are not of me. Let Asar be the adorant, Isa the sufferer; Hoor in his secret name is the Lord initiating. There is a word to say about the Hierophantic task. Behold! There are three ordeals in one, and it may be given in three ways. The gross must pass through fire; let the fine be tried in intellect, and the lofty chosen ones in the highest. Thus ye have star & star, system & system; let not one know well the other!” Liber AL vel Legis II:49-50
“The fool readeth this Book of the Law and its comment’ & he understandeth it not.
Let him come through the first ordeal, & it will be to him as silver.
Through the second, gold.
Through the third, stones of precious water.
Through the fourth, ultimate sparks of intimate fire.
Yet to all it shall seem beautiful. Its enemies who say not so, are mere liars.
There is success.” Liber AL vel Legis III:63-69
We will come back to these things, I just wanted to set the stage.
Now I will reveal my answer to all of this, verse 76:
4 6 3 8 A B K 2 4 A L G M O R 3 Y X 24 89 R P S T O V A L
The 4th verse in section one is:
4. “Every number is infinite; there is no difference.”
Excellent answer to begin with, isn’t it?!
6. “Be thou Hadit, my secret centre, my heat & my tongue.”
3. “Every man and every woman is a star.”
8. “The Khabs is in the Khu, not the Khu in the Khabs.”
Ok, now here is the technical shift, we go from numbers to letters. The first letter is A. What did I do? I looked for the first whole word that begins with the letter A. (I decided to gloss pronous like a, the, etc).
Nice first A word to have, don’t you think?!
And so forth. This is the process and I do it with each chapter.
Here are the results of my work with each Chapter:
“Every number is infinite; there is no difference. Be thou Hadit, my secret centre, my heart & my tongue! Every man and every woman is a star. The Khabs is in the Khu, not the Khu in the Khabs. Aiwass behold Khabs. The unveiling of the company of Heaven. Every number is infinite; there is no difference. Adore Light Gods. Manifestation Other Rule. Every man and every woman is a star. Your (ordeal) X. I am Nuit, and my word is six and fifty. But whoso availeth in this, let him be the chief of all! Rituals. Priest. Star. There. One Vault Above Love.”
“Yet she shall be known & I never. I am the flame that burns in every heart of man, and in the core of every star. I am Life, and the giver of Life, yet therefore is the knowledge of me the knowledge of death. In the sphere I am everywhere the centre, as she, the circumference, is nowhere found. Who worshipped Heru-pa-kraath have worshipped me; ill, for I am the worshipper. All Bride Knowledge. Come! all ye and learn the secret that hath not yet been revealed, I, Hadit, am the compliment of Nu, my bride. I am not extended and Khabs is the name of my house. Yet she shall be known & I never. Am Life. Good Magician. Old Revealed. In the sphere I am everywhere the centre, as she, the circumference, is nowhere found. In the sphere I am everywhere the centre, as she, the circumference, is nowhere found. Behold! these be grave mysteries; for there are also of my friends who be hermits. Now think not to find them in the forest or on the mountain; but in beds of purple, caressed by magnificent beasts of women with large limbs, and fire and light in their eyes, and masses of flaming hair about them; there shall ye find them. Ye shall see them at rule, at victorious armies, at all the joy; and there shall be in them a joy a million times greater than this. Beware lest any force another, King against King! Love one another with burning hearts; on the low men trample in the fierce lust of your pride, in the day of your wrath. O prophet! thou hast ill will to learn this writing. Rituals Purged Secret That Ones Veiling Away Light.”
“Choose ye an island! Dung it about with enginery of war! Now let it be first understood that I am a god of War and of Vengeance. I shall deal hardly with them. With it ye shall smite the peoples; and none shall stand before you. Abrahadabra Beware Kiblah There is division hither homeward; there is a word not known. Spelling is defunct; all is not aught. Beware! Hold! Raise the spell of Ra-Hoor-Khuit! Choose ye an island! All Lurk God Miraculous Other Ra Hoor Khuit Now let it be first understood that I am a god of War and of Vengeance. I shall deal hardly with them. Ye (ordeal) X The best blood is of the moon, monthly; then fresh blood of a child, or dropping from the host of heaven: then of enemies; then of the priest or of the worshippers, last of some beast no matter what. Ye shall see that hour, o blessèd Beast, and thou the Scarlet Concubine of his desire! Raise Peoples Spelling There Off Vengeance Aught Law”
You can check my work, but trust me, I went over this with a fine toothed comb, and I checked my letters and numbers, counts more than twice. If you follow along you will undoubtedly agree my choices were correct.
These are not my words. This is following the formula of using verse 76 as the template, and using Liber AL as the Stele of Revealing, the Kaaba, and I did ‘find new symbols to attribute them unto’ directly from the book itself. ‘Yet to all it shall seem beautiful. Its enemies who say not so, are mere liars.’
My goal is to create the next four web pages where I shall go into each chapter and make my comments on it, and in Chapter Four I will reveal the ‘ultimate sparks of intimate fire’ by using these other systems like Toavotea Key and Trigrammaton English Qabalah to show how this all comes together, as we each have pieces to the whole. I have read Aleister Crowley’s Old and New Commentaries on the Book of the Law, had discussions with various people and groups, such as Greater Thelema, Thelema Nu, and other occult groups no longer online, and I have studied and read, worked magick and meditated on this work since 1984. Of course at the same time, in 1985 I began to study the Mayan stuff, and talked with Dr. Jose Arguellas and have also worked simulatneously with the Dreamspell. Being a Libra, this has helped to foster my polarity/duality/mirroring technique that has helped me to discover this, which is a process that I call ReVision, which I think is the key, core to The Great Work, The Book of the Law, the Book of Lies, and of course Crowley’s excellent magickal comments on Liber AL Vel Legis, The Book of Thoth and his, Lady Frieda Harris Thoth Tarot Deck.
We shall test to see if all of this that I have uncovered here is complete nonsense, or if it does fall into place with the 3 hidden ordeals, the 3 in 1 ordeal mentioned above, and the 4 ordeals mentioned in Chapter three. If an Exegesis of Thelema and the Book of the Law unfolds, then I would say this is proof that I have unlocked a key to the Book itself, the riddle that has perplexed many, and at the same time has led to much discussion, diversion and creativity by other prophets. ‘There is success.’
Email me if you wish to discuss anything, ask any questions. I am not here to argue or convince. I hope to show what is obvious. Not everyone will have ears to hear, but those who do will understand this work, and the gnosis behind the Immanent Kabba of Liber AL, and therefore be able to understand the transcendent nature of Liber AL for themselves.
