At any rate, I have found this work to be one of the most useful resources on esoteric subjects I have ever run across. Book 1 discusses Gematria, a powerful tool for analyzing language and harnessing it for Magickal ritual. Book 3 is a Qaballistic dictionary indexed by the numbers and various Hebrew words and phrases associated with each one in terms of the sum of the values of the Hebrew letters in each not all the larger indexing numbers are listed, however, and of those that are given, many are without corresponding Hebrew associations , along with a display of the Hebrew alphabet and the numerical value or values of each of its letters some Hebrew letters have more than one value, depending on where they fall in a word. In Book 1 of this work, Crowley discusses the definition of Qaballah: a set of distinct numbers in bijective correspondence with a set of distinct alphanumeric symbols. He also says that which numbers are used as the indexing set for those symbols can be whatever you wish them to be, as long as you are consistent.

The old Kabbalah was an early Jewish form of Torah commentary that was prominent in the sixteenth century via the book the Zohar. It introduced the diminishing Four Worlds , God as the transcendent Ain Soph , Israel as embodying the Shekinah , or "presence", as children of the True God, and most popularly the ten Sephiroth as schema of the universe between Israel and Jehovah.
It did this by interpreting the concrete ethics of the scripture rather than, say, the universal parable more evident in the gospels. Through the darker centuries, it became popular with occultists like Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa , Pico della Mirandola and Eliphas Levi before being formalised in popular new-age magic. Gematria[ edit ] Gematria was extrapolated from The Equinox vol. It explains the dogmatic Qabalah as taught by the original order of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.
The main studies are the ten "Sephiroth" or "Emanations" of the godhead. These can also be seen as rungs of a divine hierarchy between Earth and Godhead—and the three forms of word analysis. The title refers to a lightning flash descending the diagrammatic worlds, the zig-zag pattern suggesting three diminishing 7s.
It consists of roughly columns, with each row corresponding to a specific Sephirah or path on the Tree of Life for a total of 35 rows and is used for a quick reference for corresponding mnemonics and factors of religion for use in magic for instance, an evocation of Venus would have one looking across that column for the colour corresponding to Venus that will be the colour of his or her robe, and then Venusian incense, etc.
The first appearance of was published anonymously in after Crowley had written it from memory in just a week. The horizontal columns have many categories pertinent to religion, mythology and magick given in some parts each.
From the 11th path onward some of these numbers have been exemplified by appearing to the left or right in the margin for easy reference, paths 11, 23, 31, bis and bis are leftwards and denote the five astrological elements; paths 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 22, 24, 25, 26, 28, 29 are rightwards and denote the 12 astrological signs, the rest are astrological planets.
This includes smaller tables that extrapolate correspondences of the five elements, twelve zodiacal signs and seven planets only. Sepher Sephiroth[ edit ] Sepher Sephiroth was originally a supplement to the Equinox vol. The title means "Book of Emanations" and is also indexed as Liber
