A Solution to Liber Loagaeth, Part 6

Note: see update at bottom.

So one other thing that has previously been observed about Loagaeth is the interspersing of the full Enochian letters throughout the text. For example, the Enochian letter equivalent to the English letter E is Graph, the equivalent to Z is Ceph, etc. The letters of Loagaeth were transmitted one by one, yet the letters themselves sometimes spell out a letter, equivalent to receiving J-A-Y in order to just make the letter J, C-E-E to receive the letter C, and so on. So the simplest of substitutions is to experiment with replacing these spelled-out letters with a single letter, and then using what remains to create a word, the equivalent of turning J-A-Y-O-B into J-O-B by substitution to have the word “job.” I suspect that much more of the Loagaeth text will be readable by just making this change.

You can see a couple of advantages of this sort of veiling of the knowledge for those receiving initiation into these mysteries (or in our case, piercing the veil, since we don’t have Dee or other direct lineage from which to receive initiation!). The main one is that, as Cody P. has mentioned to me, the psychological effect of gestalt and also deeper awareness of our symbols, and connection to how we form them when we pronounce them. Interestingly, the names of the Enochian letters don’t include the sounds they represent. Other than Ged for the equivalent of G and Van for V, no other letters include the sound of the letter within the full names of the Enochian letters: English A is Un in Enochian, B is Pa, C and K are Veh, D is Gal, and so on. It’s almost as if Enochian is trying to lift us up from identification of the letters from their mere “pronunciation” and instead create letters which are separate from their pronunciation, words that are closer to their root meaning, and verbs with so many irregular varieties and varied spellings that the mind has to take each instance of speech as a unique moment of communication.

Yet this speech also is part of a narrative (unveiling of knowledge, the fall of humanity–and implicitly, the hope of evolution from a merely human state for those who are lifted up by Divine grace through these mysteries), a mathematical structure, a Divine force to uplift our minds, a geometric structure in which we think, and the like. The foundation, of course, is humility (deep openness to knowledge the supplicant lacks) and a sufficient understanding. The angels then provide a language that separates the understanding of the letter as separate from (or more accurately, not parallel with) the production of speech–in neurological terms a language that separates Wernicke’s area from Broca’s area. This allows a new way to think about thinking, a new way to use language and reading in understanding.

The angels incorporate parts of an individual’s existing symbolic narratives as well and communicate via both imagery and speech to the supplicant. Along the way they include number sense (the dorsal parietal, frontal, and inferior temporal areas of the brain, apparently), and as the visions in the Enochian Aethyrs themselves become progressively more abstract, they become more geometric in nature, so throw in visual-spatial and geometry skills. Because there’s so much to coordinate, there is quite likely a large working memory component for the supplicant to develop as well.

All in all, this process seems like several subtle reboots to the brain, an upgrade to individual interface packages, followed by a big change to the operating system. The importance of this is that unravelling each part of this is helpful to the supplicant in considering transformation/decryption of the text, as well as interpretations of Loagaeth.

At any rate, I’m not pursuing this solution just yet (I’m trying to onor the ; I just wanted to let some of the considerations that could be applied to a potential solution to Loagaeth.

Update. An interesting of the letter whenever its spelled out name appears in Leaf 49: doncha, ur, chinvane, vors (or uors), adnor. This reduces the words to icha, L, chinve, ufs (more likely than vfs), and adnf (likely pronounced adneff by inference). This also reduces the number of total letters in Leaf 49 from 113 to 106. Repeating this process with our new words, we can further reduce chinve to chinc for 105 letters (as specified by the angel Galvah). The reduction by seven letters and then an eighth also parallels the seven heptarchical kings who are ruled by an eighth. An additional justification of this approach is that it leaves five L’s, paralleling the five tables of 21 letters that Galvah instructed Dee to make out of the words received.

This parallels Leitch’s reduction of the letters in Leaf 49 via the spelled-out letter zed to Z and reducing ch to k via Kelley pronouncing the former digraph as a /k/ sound. This is only somewhat defensible given that the angels spelled out the ch as two letters in Row 1 of Leaf 1A (making a seven-letter word, to Dee’s delight, recognizing the concordance of this with the septenary nature of the Heptarchy), and that other words, such as Moz and Mozod, aren’t equivalent, for the angel Nalvage specifies they have similar but not identical meanings (“joy” and “joy of God”).

Another approach to reducing Leaf 49 from 113 letters to 105 put forward by the AOM is to simply remove the eight-letter word “Loagaeth,” because it had previously been received. This is doubtful, for it was only received moments earlier. Leitch suggests either a miscount by Dee (which he is rightly dubious of, mainly because he could see the words in front of him, to which I would add the five tables that Galvah instructs Dee to arrange the letters into five tables of 21 letters, which parallels the 21 letters of the Enochian alphabet itself), or that two words which appeared separately, adnor and doncha, belong together because Dee may have split the word adnordoncha when a distracting vision of seas appeared before Kelley. This is a good case, as is he unique underlining notation below vors and hirobra being suggestive of concatenation for vorshirobra.

The ultimate test of my approach, though, is whether this reveals a hidden order (of the wisdom/Chokmah variety) from what Galvah calls a “hotchpot without order” (much as Babalon appears more orderly with mental concentration in ZIP), and is consistent with Galvah‘s observations, of “the speech of that disorder or prophe[cy].” Unfortunately because this adds to the number of I‘s (or Gon‘s), this does not create letters that can be removed from the end of the letters in Leaf 1b. Perhaps a transformation of Leaf 49 (such as replacing the letters with those in the reverse place in order) and then subtracting those letters from 1B may work, or that approach may remain a dead end. Regardless, I simply want to transparently show readers my process in thinking about a possible solution to Liber Loagaeth, to share additional interpretations of this material, and to encourage those who may have their own approaches in working with it.

A Solution to Liber Loagaeth: Part 2

This post follows on to this post, and is edited from a Discord discussion about my thinking about the ring nature of the leaves of Loagaeth. Thanks to Jon Ciel of Uizelian magic and Argus for their feedback and input, some of which I have incorporated.

So here’s the outlines of an approach to unlocking Liber Loagaeth that I’ve been thinking about; the Great Table in Enochian is 25 letters wide by 27 letters high. This is divided into four quadrants, typically thought of as elemental in nature, but also includes the names of all 91 (or 92) governors.

There are 94 Liber Loagaeth half-leaves of 49×49 grids (more on this in a moment). So the idea here is you place a reduced Great Table (24×24) by eliminating the names of God (the 12-letter names, e.g., ORO IBAH AOZPI–they are holy, after all) in the four quadrants corners as well as the entire Black cross. Then, overlay four Great Tables in the onto a 49×49 leaf. This leaves (heh) each 49×49 table with its own central cross, possibly as the key to try to solve it.

Another possibility (let’s call it Approach 2) is removing only two of the rows, leaving a 24×25 and overlaying this version four times (two of them would be rotated 90 degrees). This would leave a single letter in the center as the possible key to solving it.

There are some advantages to each approach. Approach 1 leaves a nice parallel to the Great Table. Furthermore, this Central Cross is more evenly balanced than the Great Table’s Black Cross, and could be folded three dimensionally into two rings, like so:

Which would look similar to this diagram by Johannes Dryander:

Annulorum trium diversi generis

In fact, this suggests that a third ring should be added, such as at the 13th and 37th rows or columns. I would stick with rows, though, because this would continue the parallel to the Great Table. Ultimately there would be 9 letters in all, and this parallels not only the bottom of Leaf 1b (which is a 9×49 table) as well as the sum of the numbers in the SDA (which totals 441: “Truth” in Gematria).

Approach 2 has its own merits. Not only does respect the placements of the central names of God (after all, these are the names on the Tablet of Union!), it leaves each of them four times, not twice (if this sounds tricky, consider we could instead have a 25×24 modified Great Table by leaving the column of the Black Cross as-is and instead deleting its row along with the rows for the four 12-letter names of God. Why would this matter? This means that you get 16 names–a perfect parallel to the Great Table–as well as a Gematrially-sound 1 + 6 = 7, matching the septuple nature underlying the entire system. On a personal note, 16^2 = 256, and I was specifically asked to calculate the ratio of a 5D-volume of a 5-sphere circumscribed about a 5-simplex vs one inscribed…it was 256:1. Took me a while to find the formulae, (thank you Google Books), but I did.

Both approaches include deleting the names of God in the Great Table. Note that this leaves 77 governors, which adds both the septuple nature and also appears in the 2nd Book of Chronicles, the Gospel of Matthew (and, via an alternative interpretation of that passage as 70 times 7, the Book of Daniel.

We’ll come back to another Bible verse in a moment, but here is a sequential summary of what constitutes the leaves of Liber Loagaeth:

  1. One half-leaf, which actually is 49 long lines of text;
  2. One half-leaf which is a hybrid of 40 lines of text with a 9×49 table at the end to complete it;
  3. 54 straight-up 49×49 tables of letters (and with one exception, numbers), each of them uniquely titled;
  4. 40 titled tables of 49×49 with every other letter missing (i.e., tables to be completed/solved).
  5. One table of five 21-letter triangles (side length 6).

Another bible passage that is used by the angels in their transmission to Dee & Kelley, and seems very apt, is The Gospel of Luke (here I use the King James Version): “And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.” This suggests that the last table should at least be considered first; I have yet to write it but it can be found at the end of this version attributed to Donald Correll. Perhaps the sequence of all of the chapters of the book is to be reversed.

Some of what I have realized about this last table is that it was originally transmitted via Galvah (whose is described as “the end of wisdom”–suggesting the path of Aleph (or Heh, depending on the source) connecting Chokmah to Kether), and in that transmission, there is an additional word, “LOAGAETH,” which of course itself means “Speech of God.” This leaves 5×21 =105 letters (or 113 letters if we include Loagaeth). This once again leaves two approaches to understanding ways to unlock and use this table.

Both approaches have the five triangles together suggest inner and outer 4-simplexes (AKA a 5-cell), which is a 4-dimensional regular polytope made of tetrahedra (just as the 5-simplex is made of 4-simplexes). Galvah says of this table: “In them is the Divinity of the Trinity. The Mysterie of our Creation. The age of many years. And the conclusion of the World. Of me they are honoured, but of me, not to be uttered: Neither did I disclose them my self: For, they are the beams of my understanding, and the Fountain from whence I water.”

Any correct understanding of this must include a mystery of the Trinity (i.e., look for triangles of words), the mystery of our Creation, and the conclusion of the world. Since this is coming via Dee, we can expect a mathematical bent to this, but let’s first look at one of the triangles (using English letters; sorry if the formatting comes through weird, essentially it’s an equilateral triangle with side-length six (keep that number in mind) and 21 letters arranged from top to bottom in a 1-2-3-4-5-6 format):

S
EG
LOX
IBRI
NCCLA
RZEDDO

The “middle triangle” of 3 that one could make from this would be OBR (Med-Pa/Peh-Don). Thus the mystery of the trinity would be to create one of each of these creating 5 three-letter words in all. This would match the 15-nature of Saturn and, with 105 letters across these five tables, would also be 15*7. This would be the first approach. Keep, 15, 3 and 5 (the factors of 15) and 7 in mind, they’ll come up again.

Taken as-is, the 105 letters of the final table are divisible by 7, 15, yet we see that 15 is the mystery of the trinity, for it means that humanity) long associated with the number 5) is in production with God and with creation (7 planets suggesting the three Kabbalistic worlds of Formation, Creation, and Emanation). Remember that in mathematics, products are definitionally the result of multiplication. The implications of this are that God’s work on earth is something He produced with/through humanity to bear witness to his Creation (105 in Gematria: “God is Witness”/ALAD; “Yah is omniscient”/YHVYDA). Finally, note that Galvah says it is “the conclusion of the world.” Another word for conclusion is “end” and thus “purpose.” This suggests that the end of wisdom is to understand the purpose of the world, and here we see that this purpose is to understand ourselves to be in constant co-working with the trinity (at Binah/Understanding) and the creation. Regardless, we have a strong case for this approach.

The next approach is to note the glaringly absent word LOAGAETH from these equilateral pyramids. Why would happen if we put this at the bottom? The 8-letters would be imbalanced, but if we omit the name of God eL/L (again, too holy to be included), we get 7 letters, and a 1-2-3 triangle (six letters–I told you this number would come up again!) of OBRCCL, which is of side-length three and also a divisible in number by 3.

Well, I admit I had to put something back in to get this interesting take, but let’s step back a minute and look at 113 (the number of letters if you include LOAGAETH). Turns out, this is an interesting number for various reasons. In Gematria, it suggests gems & glowing. Mathematically, it’s prime, and a centered square number, the sum of 49 & 64 (these numbers have a difference of 15!), and is part of a Pythagorean triple of 15(!), 112, and 113. Speaking of triples, 49 (7^2) + 24^2 (576) = 25^2 (625)–now we have our friendly 24×25 returning.

Sticking with the 15/112/113 triple, let’s look at this kabbalistically: 15 squared, which is 225 (“Worthy gift”), which comes to 9 in Gematria. Thus 15 reconciles Yesod (2+2+5=9) with Binah (15 as the the sum of any row in a Saturn Square–you could also say it is 45 (the sum of the entire Saturn square) as seen through humanity (5). 15 itself relates to Hod, leading us back to the 8 and thus 8^2 +49 = 113. 15 itself comes to 6 in Gematria–suggestive of Tiphareth.

112 is not only the first product of 7 with its first 2-digit Kabbalistic form, 16 (16*7=112), it also expands into 12544, which comes to 16 & then to 7. I see this more as a reconciliation of the 7 planets with the product of quadriplicity, the elements interacting with themselves. Alternatively, Jupiter/Chesed is its own product (4^2) and Mercury/Hod meets itself (8*2)–Mercury being a pretty dualistic planet in its own right). On its own, Gematria for 112 includes “To thrust” which suggests Chokmah (it reduces to 4 which is Chesed again, which links directly with Chokmah on the Pillar of Mildness on the Tree of Life), which has been linked to KAOS/disorder in the Aethyrs, and indeed Galvah says of this table, “[I]t signifieth a disorder of the World, and is the speech of the Disorder or Prophesie.”

113^2 is 12769, which comes to 25 & 7 via gematria. 113 itself reduces to 5, suggesting Geburah. The largest number in this Pythagorean triple expands Creation to a balance between Mars (5^2) & Venus at Tiphareth. Creation is balanced within itself. Note that 15=6, 112=4, and 113=5 suggests the central world of Creation.

So I’ve offered two pairs of approaches to solving it, laying out some ideas of what a solution to Loagaeth may look like. The math here is incredible and I respect Dee’s ability as a mathematician, the words within Loagaeth itself do not seem to be glossolalia, and I look forward to finishing copying the book and seeing whether I can combine these insights with 46a (hey, how many chromosomes do humans usually have again?).

One additional thing I would like to do is see what happens when you draw, from the center of the Holy Table of Practice, lines from the center to each of the 7 ensigns and see which letters on the outer square you pick up….

The (Z)OM(G) post!

Like, did you ever look at the PELE ring?

Pele ring: now you’ve looked at it.

The outer letters are “PELE” which is Latin for “He will work wonders” and which also means “miracle” in Hebrew. The middle letters are V & L, which suggests LVX or Latin for “light” (the circle makes five crosses suggesting 5 X’s, one for each of Christ’s wounds; 5 is generally considered the number of man).

But, like, have you noticed the middle? It’s, like, a circle, man, and there’s a horizontal line in there, man! It’s like it’s referring to geometry, man! It’s a reference to a compass (which makes arcs, or a whole circle!) and straightedge! There was geometry to this magical system from the very beginning…. Also, the opening prayer says “His Name is Wonderful: PELE.” If you take the V as the Latin for the English W and follow downward, you not only make a cross, you get the first two and last letters of the word “Wonderful.”

But, like, what else does the circle and line suggest? Why, a mouth making the word OM, the most sacred word in Hinduism! This is just more evidence to me that Enochian is (among other things) a modifier to Christianity to interface more readily with Eastern systems, and make it universal (much as mathematics is universal; also see Prayer 110 for an example of how the core concepts of the major religions can be translated directly into Enochian).

After all, U/V & L are also the first and last letters of the word “universal.”
