Seeking a Search to a Solution to Liber Loagaeth, Part 5

Some divine inspiration struck last night regarding certain numbers and their part in Liber Loagaeth. All of the leaves, save two, are in the 49×49 letter format. The first leaf has the front side (leaf 1a) with 49×49 words (hence why they must be written out over several pages, though the truly hardcore industrial individual may purchase a foldable 24″ square page and try to fit them all in!), and the “back” (leaf 1b) has 40×49 words and then has a 9×49 table of letters, 441 letters in all. The number 441 parallels the SDA as mentioned in prior posts.

The final table, 49, is “one” (i.e., the angels did not have Dee & Kelley produce a “back” side), and is to be made into five 3×7 tables, for 105 letters in all. This table is described as “a hotchpot without order, so it signifieth a disorder of the World, and is the speech of the Disorder or Prophe[cy].” By implication, the rest of the book should not be of the same sort of disorder. To understand the order of the rest of the book, then, a user who understands mathematics must subtract the number 105 from the 441 for a total of 336 letters. 336 divided by the number seven (the cornerstone of the Heptarchia and much of the rest of the system!) yields 48–the same number of total leaves of the first 48 leaves of the book.

How might such a solution work? I suspect that each of these 48 “keys” unlocking each table is used twice, once with the word going forwards, and once with it going backwards. We have seen the play on “the first shall be last, and the last shall be first” in my prior post on seeking a solution to Loagaeth. This may yield the Enochian keys / calls themselves. It may even be that each of the keys is to work, not once for each leaf, but rather the first key will unlock Leaves 1a & 48b, the second 1b & 4a, the third 2a & 47b, etc.

Let’s start with seeing if we can obtain a key: here is the key as transcribed from Sloane 3188 (note that for the sake of clarity I haven’t reversed the tables as they would appear in the Enochian script):

ADROS,A,CLODFAC,DOGEPNAH,LAPCAH,MOCDACODEFAMON,TUALC,DOM,
URASNAGEPH,AMPHIDON,GANSEL,VAX,OREHAMAH,VORSAFANSA,UKAS
DAMIFAGA,NABULAX,ORSAGEH,NAMVAH,OCAR,LUNSANGEL,CARPACOA.
LUNSEMNEPH,ODARNACHOH,ZEMBLOH,OBLICANDON,GALSORXULAGA,
FOMNAPH,APANSAGEH,LONSUGALAN,GRAST,UBLANSO,ARNOX,VONSAO
TALTEMAPHECH,ORMACHADAGENOX,URSTAMVAH,NADVAREH,ONS,ARG
ZUCANZU,NAPLIORAH,NORGE,HAHANAHA,USPLAH,GRADUNVAH,NAVIO,
ARSAH,VONROGEN,DAHVALAH,ORZAP,CUL,CARSED,A,PO,RSAL,QASTAVA,
GANFUMARABOMONAH,GASTAGES,ORDOLPH,NAQAS,ORGEMVAH,NOXAD.
bottom of Leaf 1B from Liber Loagaeth

Next, I move forward in order across this table and delete each letter from the first table 49 (I’m using the AOM version, without the word “Loagaeth”; doing this with the Leitch version leaves a suspiciously untouched 8th & 9th row from Leaf 1b):

ADROS,A,CLODFAC,DOGEPNAH,LAPCAH,MOCDACODEFAMON,TUALC,DOM,
URASNAGEPH,AMPHIDON,GANSEL,VAX,OREHAMAH,VORSAFANSA,UKAS
DAMIFAGA,NABULAX,ORSAGEH,NAMVAH,OCAR,LUNSANGEL,CARPACOA.
LUNSEMNEPH,ODARNACHOH,ZEMBLOH,OBLICANDON,GALSORXULAGA,
FOMNAPH,APANSAGEH,LONSUGALAN,GRAST,UBLANSO,ARNOX,VONSAO
TALTEMAPHECH,ORMACHADAGENOX,URSTAMVAH,NADVAREH,ONS,ARG
ZUCANZU,NAPLIORAH,NORGE,HAHANAHA,USPLAH,GRADUNVAH,NAVIO,
ARSAH,VONROGEN,DAHVALAH,ORZAP,CUL,CARSED,A,PO,RSAL,QASTAVA,
GANFUMARABOMONAH,GASTAGES,ORDOLPH,NAQAS,ORGEMVAH,NOXAD.

Repeating these steps with the remaining four tables from Leaf 49, one quickly discovers a problem: there are more letter I’s (Enochian: Gon) in that table than in Leaf 1B, regardless of whether the AOM or Leitch version of Leaf 49 is used. Darn! A “hotchpot of disorder” indeed!

My next attempt was to take every seventh letter out of these 441 letters; the first result of this is a 9 row by 7 column (the first 63 letters out of 105), which I show below with the letters of King Carmara (I’ve also bolded an additional letter M for the Marmara version) and Prince Hagonel.

C DH,MDTM,
GHNOH,AS
GAEH,NCA.
NRZODOA,
H,GURAOO
ARARH,EG
U,RE,HH,VO,
ODH,UD,L,A,
ANAOAVD.

I then continued with the remaining 42 letters out of 105, and noticed that not only were Carmara & Hagonel there, but also, separately, the common letters of Baligon (the Venusian version of King Carmara) and Bagonel (the Venusian version of Prince Hagonel): BAGNLO; with a separate I & E:

LGPAOO
EDL,AAA
A,OAR,EO
EABCLG
AH,LURA
PANMAR
NH,HPUI

Coincidence? Maybe, but the presence of these two kings and princes in particular (leaving only 19 out of the original 42 letters NOT part of a royal angelic name) suggests to me that rather than removing letters from this in a disordered manner (i.e., how they originally showed up), it makes more sense to remove the number of disorder from the original 441 in an orderly manner. Doing so seems to be confirm the method in that the Heptarchia shows up so as to wink at the process.

What remains are the following 48 seven-letter combinations, which may or may not unlock individual tables in Loagaeth:

ADROSAO DFACOEP NALACAH OCDCOEF AMNUALC DURASNA
PHAMPIO NGASEVA XREHMAV ORSFNSA UKDAMIF ANABULX
RSAGHNM VAOCALU SANGLAR PACLUNS EMPHODA NCHOHEM
LOHBLIA NONGASR XULAFOM NAPPANS AELONSG AANGAST
BLNSOAN XVONSTA LTEMHEC HOMCHAD GEOXUST AVANADU
RHONSAZ UCANZAP LIOANOR GHAANAA USLAGRA DNAHNAV
ARSAHVN ROGENAH VALAORZ APCLCAR SEAPORS AQASTAV
GANFUMR ABOMOAH GASTGES ORDLPHN AQSORGE MAHNOXA

I’ll try to test these out later when I get some inkling of how they are to work, but this is the stage that I’m at right now. Clearly, more needs to happen before this is solved. If you like, feel free to work to see if there is an algorithm; just get back to me (there’s an email form somewhere on the site) if you’re successful.

Approach to a Loagaeth Solution, Part 3

Just another note on the general structure of the tables of Liber Loagaeth which are to be completed by the magician; there are 1201 cells visible to the magician on most of the tables to be completed on most of them. It turns out that, like the 113 letters of Table 49, 1201 is a centered-square number. What are the other two integers that (by definition) go with it? 1,200 & 49. Interestingly, 1201 + 1200 = 2401, which is 49^2. “Multiplied and dignified” numbers indeed!

Additionally, 1201 is a “super-prime.” To explain this, consider the first few prime numbers: 2, 3, 5, 7, & 11 would be the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, & 5th primes. Of these, 3 (prime number 2, which itself a prime number), 5 (prime number 3, also prime), & 11 (prime number 5, also prime) would be called “super-primes.” Interestingly, 1201 is the 197th prime number, yet while 197 is the 45th prime, 1201 is the 45th super-prime; additional dignity! 1201 is also the 25th (5^2) centered-square number, and the 15th centered decagonal number. 25 +15 = 40, and to make sure we multiply and dignify further, 4 (for squares) times 10 (for decagons) is also 40, and of course 40 is highly significant biblically & in Gematria as the number of water, and is also the number of cells in the ring around the SDA. Water is indeed mentioned by Galvah when asked about the letters of Leaf 49: “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.”

Now that this seems to be exhausted (but you never know if Terence Tao will happen upon your blog!), let’s look at some of the exceptions to this. Leaf 43a, the first (technically, the first half) of the last 7 leaves of the 49 total (“So the last shall be first, the first last”) shows the a 7×7 square in the upper-left corner (but in Enochian/angelic letters, these would be in the upper-right). It also has the entire first row (rather than missing half its letters). In all, this makes 1246, which is a centered tetradecagonal (4+10=14) number, the 28th (14*2).

441, which is “Truth” in Gematria and additionally the sum (heh) of the outer ring of the SDA (as we saw in the previous post), is also a centered tetradecagonal number, the 17th, and for other reasons 441 is a very cute number: the sum of the first 6 cubes (“the mystery of the divinity” as promised by Galvah). 441=21^2 (21 letters in each of the 5 triangles in Leaf 49), which means there’s a further mystery of the trinity expressed through this leaf.

It’s not exactly clear, but either Dee or the angels or both seem to have also given us help on the other half of this leaf (Leaf 43b) but this time just with the first row, which means we have 1225 letters in all, or 35^2, or 5*5*7*7. We see yet again the expression of threes and fives in addition to the ubiquitous seven.

I noticed something else at Leaves 29a & 29b; Leaf 29 is the first of the fifth seven, and because five is the number of humanity, it makes sense that this is these are the first tables to have missing information (for we begin in a state of ignorance relative to the angels). Unlike the other leaves, which only leave out every other letter, Leaf 29a also has two complete 7×7 squares and two 8×7 rectangles at the left and right & top and bottom, respectively, each with capital letters where there would otherwise be blanks in every other cell. The use of 7 and 8 in this case is suggestive of the 113, or 7*7 + 8*8, letters in leaf 49. There are also four standalone letters at the corners, for a total of 110 (product of the 1st, 3rd, & 5th prime numbers). Altogether there are 1311 letters, which is 3*19*23. Leaf 29b looks nearly identical to 29a, except it has four 7×7 squares for an additional 100 letters and 2 letters in each corner for 108 (2^2*3^3) in all, or 1309 letters. 1309 is 7*11*17, and is the first sphenic number (numbers that are products of three primes) to be followed by two more sphenic primes (1310 and 1311, the latter of which we’ve seen before, which of course is the same first/last reversal we’ve seen repeatedly, since 1309, the earlier of these, comes last, while 1311 came first).

I’ll keep plugging away at this, but I thought I’d share the thoughts as they came to me!

Miniature SDAs

Those familiar with the Enochian system are likely aware of the Sigillum Dei Aemeth (SDA), or “Seal of God’s Truth,” a disc made of beeswax which is carved by the magician. This gorgeous seal has on its top an outer ring segmented into 40 parts, which circumscribes a heptagon of 49 spaces (7 for each side), which touches an inner heptagram at the points, within which are two more heptagons, the inner of which touches a pentagram. On the bottom, the Notarikon AGLA (Atah Gibor Le-olam Adonai,” or “Thou art powerful forever, Lord”) is written in a clockwise formation, within which several interlocking crosses are arranged.

There are hundreds of letters and numbers to be written on the spaces in the front in order to complete this seal. This can be done, but it takes patience on the 9″ version to do so when working with the beeswax: it an immense amount of when working on the four 4″ versions! My recommendation is to do so on the miniature (4″) SDAs soon after making the geometric template (and not waiting for a year, as I did!). Another caution is that it’s much easier to make a mistake with these, so be patient and careful. Double-check each place before lettering it. However, the angelic “high” that comes from making these smaller pieces of the temple furniture is the same as for the SDA, so it’s worth it from that perspective alone.

I’ll be reporting back after having done the lettering on all 4 of these. Chances are I’ll re-scry LIL again (that being my main Enochian activity nowadays).
