Scent

Postby Corvinae » Thu Dec 15, 2011 9:01 am

Looking for a table or graph.

I am thinking that each letter of the alphabet corresponds to a fragrance, or a scent of some sort.

Looked in 777 and didnt see what I wanted, but maybe not familiar enough.

Was thinkning that if I had 22 fragrances, that I would be better able to understand the letters, and how they combine 231 different ways.....

On page 13, table XLII

http://hermetic.com/crowley/libers/liber777.pdf

Numbers 11-32 correspond to the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, in order.

And, similarly, 776 1/2, Cols. 802, 809, and possibly some other useful things in the 800 range.

Thanks, that was what I was looking for.
Looked right at it, but I do not understand why it would start at 11.
Table six seems to help, but still I just don't have the familiarity to grasp the whole.

I bet your book Mr Eshelman, would clarify things for me.

Some of those perfumes are not easy to come by, especially in essential oils.

I had thought about attempting to design a dispenser, sort of like a puzzle box, that you would shift the letter about to combine two scents...

Not sure that would be practical at all....

What is the best way to digest those tables?

Because all the columns are lined up to the Tree of Life. 1-10 are the sephirot; 11-32 are the paths.
