A Solution to Liber Loagaeth, Part 7

So I got to the “Pagesgem” half-leaf (9a) a few days ago. Aside from it being beautiful and the only table to both have numbers and a name, Bornogo, from the Heptarchy (four times in a beautiful cross-and-X pattern), and being the only table to have a large circle of diameter 21 within the grid, I wanted to make some points about the numbers themselves.

The four corners have simple 7×7 tables within them with either the numbers 1-7 or 2-8 in rows; two of each appear in opposing corners. Thus the sum of each row is either 28 or 35, meaning that two sum to 196 and two sum to 245; each pair sums to 441 (21^2), a number I’ve dealt with at length before. The digits begin in ascending order and from there shift over one spot, meaning that the number 1 for the 1-7 table and the number 2 for the 2-8 table is in a diagonal. The one exception is the lower-right corner which has the top of the table with the numbers 1-7 in reverse order at the top. Interestingly, if one chose to view the reversal as a reason to subtract that table from its lower-left counterpart, one would naturally get a difference of 49.

The lower-right corner is another clue, namely the general area that also number 49: column 32 of the grid within the circle (not including the ring of numbers itself–which sums to 272 (16*17–not part of a Pythagorean triple, sadly!). The circle itself, I should note, has exactly 111 letters within it, 111 being the number of God and the Gematria value of the Hebrew letter Aleph when spelled out (the Aleph as a letter alone is worth 1), and the ring is composed of 56 (7*8) numbers.

Interestingly, columns 30-32 break the inner pattern of the circle in many ways. Columns 18-20 (rows 18-20 & 30-32) have two length-3 sides adjoined by 90 degrees with a repeating number: the number 6 in the upper-left and the number 2 in the lower-left. For the counterpart in the upper right, a 4-4-4 column meets a 3-3-3 row due to a break in the normal pattern. The lower-right is even “curiouser”: the numbers make a 5-5-5 column, the topmost 5 of which begins a 5-6-5 row. Intrigued, I decided to sum these numbers by column and by row, and the number 6 produced a column sum (excluding the ring of the circle) of 50, while its neighbor which (which ends the row) yielded a column sum of 49. See the screenshot:

Columns 31 & 32 of Leaf 9a, within the circle

Fifty is a Kabbalistically significant number (associated with Binah and the letter Nun, among other things), and 49, of course, relates once more to both the Heptarchy and the dimensionality of Loagaeth. Of interest to me is that is these positions, columns 31 & 32, refer via addition to 63, or 7*9; multiplying by 7 (the basis of much of Enochian) yields 441 once again. the number of the row is 30, referring to the number of Aethyrs.

So, having seen this pattern here, another possible means to solve Loagaeth is to look to Columns 32 (the 6th & 7th from the middle row) and possibly also Row 30; or just cells R30C31 and R30C32 (to use MS Excel notation), across the tables. It’s possible a pattern (such as an Enochian phrase providing another clue) can arise in this manner. I haven’t yet explored it, but I will!
