776 1/2 col. 806 - desultory questions

Postby gmugmble » Tue Aug 23, 2011 7:45 am

I've got a few questions about 776 1/2 col 806 "Magical Formulae".

Lines 4 and 9: What are "SU" and "MU"?

Line 5: Why is Shekinah attributed to Geburah?

Line 13: Why is Amen attributed here? I thought it was attributed to Kether?

Lines 25 and 26: Why is ON here?

See Heart of the Master. I think these originated there, and have etymological roots of interest. Would have to do some digging to find my original notes, but that's where I think it originated.

Line 5: Why is Shekinah attributed to Geburah?

5-lettered name (and essentially fiery in nature - an expression of the Babalon idea to which Geburah opens). ShKYNH and ALHIM were the 'original' (OK, earlier!) pentagrammatons, almost interchangeable female deific ideas before the Christian dispensation.

Line 13: Why is Amen attributed here? I thought it was attributed to Kether?

It is a Divine Name (or sorts) of Kether, yes. It's given to the 13th Path because 91 is S(1-13) and 7 x 13.

Lines 25 and 26: Why is ON here?

ON = 120, an important formula for the advance to Tiphereth. (A better question would be why it isn't attributed to Nun.)

Thank you for the answers.

Yes, I was actually going to ask that too. Why isn't it?

Dunno. I copied that part from 777. Personally I would take it as a formula of A'ayin + Nun, in combination, and of Samekh overall (since ON = 120 = SMK).

93,

Really interesting - it opens up some explanation on why, when there is a sense of Presence in a ritual, there is the feeling or atmosphere of Power.
