Enochian is an interesting practice because there are many suggestions that it’s intended to be expanded from the source material of John Dee’s diaries. First, it embodies the idea of continuous revelation, which is to say that the Divine continues to reveal itself to us, because Dee and Edward Kelley literally petitioned God for knowledge, understanding, wisdom, etc. Second, because it’s been reconstructed from lost material, we have to make do with the information that we have and fill in the gaps in the material. Third, there are times in the source material itself that the angels hint at additional material, such as the 30 additional Parts of Earth (for a total of 121, or 11 squared) or the hints that a different Holy Table may be ultimately used, which differs from the original one received.
So it was that I found myself looking at the notes on my phone that I took when creating the Book of Silvered Leaves: a 31st “inner” Aethyr that I just forgot about (LOL–remember to take notes, kids!) by the name of TRATOMB. Unlike the first 30 Aethyrs, this one’s name is seven letters long, which means that all the letters in these Aethyrs (so far) total 97. This is an interesting parallel to me between the Book of Silvered Leaves (96 leaves across 48 pages) and the Book Amzes Naghezes Hardeh (commonly known as Liber Loagaeth, which is 98 leaves across 49 pages–though there are 101 tables in all on it).
I recently scried this Aethyr and the pertinent parts from the vision are below:
I began by seeing four separate circles in a row, with the 3rd one offset downward, reminding me of the dip in a ladle. The four circles seemed like the Tetragrammaton to me. Then they arranged themselves as the base of a square pyramid (a symbol which appeared to me during my reconstructed gebofal ritual). They then told me to imagine these five points as a 5-cell rather than a square pyramid.
Next, I saw eight circles at the points of a cube. The circles then continued to increase according to the Fibonacci sequence. I reflected on how adding or subtracting 1 to elements of the Enochian system got you interesting results: 4 watchtowers plus one gets you 5, the fifth Fibonacci integer; the seven kings of the Heptarchia plus the one king over them (Carmara) gets you to 8, the sixth Fibonacci integer. 12 zodiacal kings plus one gets you 13, the seventh Fibonacci integer (Carmara has noted to me that, as Marmara, he also is the high king over the zodiacal kings); note that the dimensions of the watchtowers are 12 by 13. The 21 letters of the Enochian alphabet themselves are the eighth Fibonacci integer, and adding 1 comes to 22, the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet.
When it comes to reversals (the angels liked to reverse things, quoting Christ in Matthew, and numbers are no exception), 13 is the reverse of 31 (the Gematria value of one Hebrew name for God, El), 21 is the reverse of 12 (the number of apostles, tribes of Israel, signs of the zodiac, etc.).
At this point in the vision, I made an odd error–I added 21 to 8, not 13. I say that this is odd because I very rarely make arithmetic errors or mathematical errors in general (you’ll just have to take my word for it). At any rate, this led me to 29, which is an important Enochian number (see my summary of the number 29 as part of a larger analysis; a possibly easier to read summary, which follows from a more general introduction to Enochian, can be found in my Telicom article reprint). From here I added this to 21 and got 50, which is of course important in Gematria. This got me thinking about a potential alternatives to Fibonacci: 1,1,2,3,5,7 (5+2),12,19,31,50,81,112 (81+31–112 is the original number of letters in the vision given to Edward Kelley for Leaf 49)–every 6th number adds the previous number with the number two places back (rather than one).
Next, the angels pointed to the need to both add and subtract 1; subtracting from 4, you get 3, the number of points need to make a plane (note that Galvah mentioned “The Mystery of the Trinity”). 4 itself is the minimum number of points for the simplest 3D solid, a tetrahedron, while 5 is the minimum number for a hyperspace object, the aforementioned 5-cell. From 8, you can subtract to 7 (the septenary nature of Enochian), or up to 9, the trinity squared. From 13 (Christ and the apostles, Israel and his sons) you can go down to 12 or up to 14 (the number of kings and princes in the Heptarchy). From 21, you can go down to 20–half of 40 (cells in the outer ring of the Sigillum Dei Aemeth, Christ’s days in the desert, Noah’s days on the ark), or up to 22 as mentioned above. From 29 you can go down to 28 (Enochian’s 7 times the 4 watchtowers) or up to 30 (the number of Aethyrs received by Dee, the number of degrees in each sign of the zodiac). Ultimately the angels told me to look up the geometry, which is mostly done here–leave a comment if you find more interesting geometrical parallels.
Next the angels show me a light and a fractal pattern, then a golden ratio, but the angels are specific that I ought to think of this more as a fractal pattern. The golden ratio is an irregular number which converges after a long series, whereas a fractal pattern is regular from the beginning; “As above, so below, and as below, so above.” The angels show me that the light is coming through in this vision, and shows me my “point” along this fractal pattern, and show me that within, the pattern continues in a shrinking fashion, and without, it continues in a growing fashion. It’s up to the heart to rectify itself to the fractal of divinity, to “get out of its stupor” (misalignment of consciousness from the Divine).
When we move ourselves into the clear-light consciousness, because the “outer” world is not yet rectified with the Divine, there is the “skew” that CodyP has talked about, which slightly misaligns us once more out of the fractal of the Divine. The nature of the “Great Work” is to do the difficult thing of compensating for the dynamic skew. I ask, “How do I do this for myself? What is it that keeps me here?” The Divine answers, “It’s partly karma”–in the sense of how every seeker must undo a lot in their ecosystem. Because of the karma, we overly identify with the karma. We need to release ourselves from this thinking, and allow the fact that it’s going to take time. The Divine does what he can, knocking out some obstacles in my head, heart, and in the rest of my system. The Divine repeats to “just be patient, just do the work, just keep doing the work: that’s all you ever need to do,” and laughs gently. The Divine shows me one part in particular with respect to a major recent event in my life, he knocks the obstacle in my heart out there, too–allowing a greater freedom within these circumstances.
I see a large sphere that is being held by a space taken up by a cone, or more precisely a line that is rotating about an axis to create a cone. The xy-axis is not quite able to spin at the appropriate rate for the sphere to stay in the same level; this is a metaphor for the heart not being able to stay in the clear light. How does the heart compensate for this? It needs to find the bias within that is reflected in the bias without and somehow compensate for it. Part of it is working through the “unreality” or misconception or “lower-level” thinking that happens when one tries to armor the heart against the outside world. One also needs to compensate for the fact that not everyone else has done that yet and to allow for that. In that allowing and in that constant work of compassion and wisdom–yet not identifying with or craving a particular end-result of that compassion and wisdom–just allowing one’s heart to be in that space. Wisdom essentially allows one to be as effective as possible at one’s compassion, but the highest wisdom is not getting caught up in the particular results.
The vision ends and I feel very uplifted.
