9 – My personal story

My Personal Story

A formula of lives?

Nuit, Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit can be viewed as a triplicity. I believe that the path of my life, when compared to my lives as Levi and Crowley, also follows a triplicity formula: [Levi – Crowley – Glick]

Eliphas Levi made occult history by being the first person to connect the Tarot cards together with the Hebrew alphabet. At the time, there wasn’t any other information about that sort of a connection. He was the one that pioneered that and realized, “There 22 trump cards, and 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet, lets connect these together”

Other occults built on that, but the next major change was when Crowley, when studying divination, noticed the similarities between eastern and western divination, so he took it upon himself to connect these systems together. He also said to himself “In the west they have Tarot, which has 78 cards, and in the east they have the I-Ching which has 64 Hexagrams. Even though they are not equal, lets roughly connect them together the best that we can”.

He dropped the extra Tarot cards, and assigned 64 Tarot cards an I-Ching equivalent. The issue is of course, since 64 doesn’t equal 78, you are missing a few things, and it’s not really “perfect”.

I am the first person to connect Tarot to the Hebrew alphabet through geomancy and the I-Ching with no loss of data and doubled up positions.  While my work can completely stand alone, when it is tied into the previous knowledge of Levi and Crowley, it gives it a much further depth.

When you consider that Crowley hardly wrote anything about the Alubdiz working, and seemed to hardly spend any time with “ABA = 4”, it strikes me as extremely odd that this piece of information hasn’t been expounded on to greater depth. These two lines, prove the truth of what Albudiz communicated:

The name of the book is Aba, and its number IV.’ It was the correspondence of the name and number (ABA = Aleph Beth Aleph = 4)

Wait! Be patient! Work! Deny nothing! The simplest things mean most. You’re on the way. The “Book IV” means freedom to all. It’s the Light.

I believe that my work is the completion of the Abuldiz prophecy.

In the sense that Crowley expounded upon and went in a much different different direction than Levi did, I am also expounding upon and going in another direction than Crowley. For what Levi was to Crowley, Crowley is to me.

The child of thy bowels, he shall behold them.

Expect him not from the East, nor from the West; for from no expected house cometh that child. Aum! All words are sacred and all prophets true; save only that they understand a little; solve the first half of the equation, leave the second unattacked. But thou hast all in the clear light, and some, though not all, in the dark.

 

100 = 0 and 0 = 2

Lets talk about Crowley’s equation of “0 = 2” for a minute; another way to think of it is as “0 = 1 + -1”. In one sense, “1” and “-1” are the same number, but in another sense, they are fundamentally different things and need to be treated distinctly as individual pieces. As Crowley said:

It is pure enthusiastic delight in the Harmony and Beauty of the System that has led me thus far afield; my one essential purpose is to show how the Universe was derived by these Wise Men from Nothing.
When you have assimilated these two sets of Equations, when you have understood how 0 = 2 is the unique, the simple, and the necessary solution of the Riddle of the Universe, there will be, in a sense, little more for you to learn about the Theory of Magick.

What is interesting about my work with the “100 = 0” formula and Crowley’s “0 = 2” formula, is that they are perfect compliments of each other, but we have achieved these goals in opposite directions. Where Crowley started with the conception of Nothing, and then expounded upon that to create the entire universe. I’ve taken an established formula of the universe, added the missing piece, and balanced it back down to Nothing.

There is only one way to expound “ABA = 4” into this new system of Tarot, and there is only one way to reduce the Tarot back down into a zeroed out equation. My work is a perfect compliment to what Crowley began to establish.

 

My Personal Transformation.

I’m at a strange place with trying to understand the degree system. Since I view the current understanding of kabbalah as totally wrong and needing to be completely reworked, by extension, so do all of the degrees. However, through my own mystical workings though, I’ve realized that I’m currently at the equivalent of 9=2.

I went through an extreme mystical ordeal my crossing over from 8=3 to 9=2. My experience was that of meeting alternate versions of myself from parallel timelines. I will explain this in more depth later, but my understanding of what happened was that I was able to achieve a level of coherence between these alternate timelines. When people talk about their HGA, what are they really describing? People talk about a “Higher Self” or “More Perfected Self”, but essentially what is it? My current understanding has to do with the idea of coherence, which is similar to the conception of unity, but not exactly the same thing. Simply because unity implies that all things are one and working together, whereas coherence is any number of things working together.

When you make the jump from 7=4 to 8=3, whats going on? I see the “HGA” as a version of your “Most Coherent Self”. Once you reach that place, you have to give it up. Why is that? Because once you’ve achieved that level of individual coherence, you can’t have a vision of your “most coherent self” because you’ve become coherent yourself in that timeline. Where would someone go to advance from there? Simple, the next step is to achieve coherence throughout your timelines side to side. After I jumped to 8=3 and achieved a coherent timeline for myself, the next jump to 9=2 achieved coherence between these four timelines.

I can’t agree with everything that Crowley wrote, simply because he is coming from the viewpoint of a single universe. I fundamentally can’t have that viewpoint any more, so I have to figure it out for myself from here.

The day after the experience I had in communicating with my parallel selves, I was sitting in a ramen shop having lunch. I thought to myself “What the hell happened in meditation last night?!” and was browsing wikipedia, killing some time on my phone waiting for my soup. I was reading about the different magickal grades, and then just after my soup came, I read this line from the title of Magus: “His work is to create a new Universe in accordance with his Will.”

When I read that, I stopped, and I realized that my brain just could not compute it, nor take it in a literal any more. After reading that one line, I realized something: “If you understand parallel Universes, and how all universes come from a series of Multiverses, which is created by an Omniverse. How could you create a new Universe? Every possible Universe that could exist, already does.” I also realized that, in talking to myself in these other timelines, that each of them had a particular type of magick that was unique to them in their respective timelines.

Once I realized that as well, another line from the grade of Magus no longer made sense: “and is a Master of all Magick in its greatest and highest sense.”, I also realized this couldn’t be possible for what I’m doing in this lifetime in a literal way either. In the same way that you can’t be the most graceful ballerina and the worlds strongest power-lifter, my parallel selves have also achieved this level of a dichotomy between them.

Because of that, it’s impossible to be a “Master of ALL Magick” (emphasis mine) simply because there is magick that exists in parallel worlds that is inaccessible. Also, there are new formula that are constantly come out of the study of magick (such that I’m working on) that render older ideas obsolete. It’s impossible to know all of magick, since to learn the newest cutting edge, is to then destroy the older obsolete systems. Being a magus, and doing magick on that level is more of a continuum.

From this point I realized, I need to contact my parallel selves again, I need to begin to structure this experience and create rituals in a 5th dimensional context. I need to create new language, new symbols, new ideas, to explain these things. In fact, I realized, that there is no map for me out there, I have to make my own map. This is really what being a Magus is really all about. The tools and rituals I am working to create, will be as influential and important as the knowledge and conversation of the HGA.

 

Ipsissimus isn’t the end any more.

While talking to myself in parallel timelines, I had access to information that normally would be impossible to reach.

For that moment, I was accessing more than just myself in this timeline.

How could you go beyond your “Most true self”?

After you’ve hit this level, you can then permanently open the barrier that closes you off from your parallel selves.

If you do this, you would no longer just be your “Most true self”.

You would become your “Most true selves”.

You wouldn’t exist on Earth any more.

You would exist on Earths.

I purchased this book on geomancy back in Nov 2012. On the inside cover of the book, it has a label on the inside signifying whom owned it, which was Edward Bacon:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Bacon_(died_1618) .

bacon

The important thing to note in this situation, was that he was the half brother of Francis Bacon: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Bacon . On the inside one of the 2nd volume, there is a note that says that the original copies of this particular text, were owned by Robert Devereux, the 2nd Earl of Essex: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Devereux,_2nd_Earl_of_Essex .

This is significant because Francis Bacon and him were good friends, and there has even been a hypothesis put out, that they are secretly brothers, but I will get back to that in a little bit. While I can’t place this volume directly in the hands of Francis Bacon, there is something very interesting about the ownership and timing of these books. In the notes regarding Robert Devereux, it says that the ownership of this book changed hands after Robert Devereux was executed for high treason, which happened in 1601.

What’s really significant about this though, is just a few years after that, Francis Bacon released information on a new system of cryptography in 1605. This is from the following on the history of binary from wikipedia, these two paragraphs are right next to each other:

“Other cultures[edit]
The residents of the island of Mangareva in French Polynesia were using a hybrid binary-decimal system before 1450.[13] Slit drums with binary tones are used to encode messages across Africa and Asia.[5] Sets of binary combinations similar to the I Ching have also been used in traditional African divination systems such as Ifá as well as in medieval Western geomancy. The base-2 system utilized in geomancy had long been widely applied in sub-Saharan Africa.

Western predecessors to Leibniz[edit]
In 1605 Francis Bacon discussed a system whereby letters of the alphabet could be reduced to sequences of binary digits, which could then be encoded as scarcely visible variations in the font in any random text.[14] Importantly for the general theory of binary encoding, he added that this method could be used with any objects at all: “provided those objects be capable of a twofold difference only; as by Bells, by Trumpets, by Lights and Torches, by the report of Muskets, and any instruments of like nature”.[14] (See Bacon’s cipher.)”

From: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_number

“The writer must make use of two different typefaces for this cipher. After preparing a false message with the same number of letters as all of the As and Bs in the real, secret message, two typefaces are chosen, one to represent As and the other Bs. Then each letter of the false message must be presented in the appropriate typeface, according to whether it stands for an A or a B.[1]
To decode the message, the reverse method is applied. Each “typeface 1” letter in the false message is replaced with an A and each “typeface 2″ letter is replaced with a B. The Baconian alphabet is then used to recover the original message.

Any method of writing the message that allows two distinct representations for each character can be used for the Bacon Cipher. Bacon himself prepared a Biliteral Alphabet[2] for handwritten capital and small letters with each having two alternative forms, one to be used as Aand the other as B. This was published as an illustrated plate in his De Augmentis Scientiarum (The Advancement of Learning).

Because any message of the right length can be used to carry the encoding, the secret message is effectively hidden in plain sight. The false message can be on any topic and thus can distract a person seeking to find the real message.”

In fact, there is a small section of the book where it talks about how to divinate names via geomantic figures

If Francis Bacon had this book or the original, it would be very easy for him to come up with this encryption scheme. I’m still doing my own research, but considering all of the interesting theories about how Francis Bacon could be connected to the true origins of Shakespear’s works, along with the alleged encryption that might have gone on, these books might be essential in cracking that. I’m not sure where I stand with this, but considering Francis’s relationship with his half brother and the Earl of Essex, it’s within reason that the origin of this knowledge could be from these books. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_Tudor_theory

 

Encyption in the Book of the Law

Nuit

My scribe Ankh-af-na-khonsu, the priest of the princes, shall not in one letter change this book; but lest there be folly, he shall comment thereupon by the wisdom of Ra-Hoor-Khuit.
Change not as much as the style of a letter; for behold! thou, o prophet, shalt not behold all these mysteries hidden therein.

The child of thy bowels, he shall behold them.

Expect him not from the East, nor from the West; for from no expected house cometh that child. Aum! All words are sacred and all prophets true; save only that they understand a little; solve the first half of the equation, leave the second unattacked. But thou hast all in the clear light, and some, though not all, in the dark.

 

Hadit

Nor shall they who cry aloud their folly that thou meanest nought avail; thou shall reveal it: thou availest: they are the slaves of because: They are not of me. The stops as thou wilt; the letters? change them not in style or value!

Thou shalt obtain the order & value of the English Alphabet; thou shalt find new symbols to attribute them unto.

 

Ra Hoor Khuit

This book shall be translated into all tongues: but always with the original in the writing of the Beast; for in the chance shape of the letters and their position to one another: in these are mysteries that no Beast shall divine. Let him not seek to try: but one cometh after him, whence I say not, who shall discover the Key of it all. Then this line drawn is a key: then this circle squared in its failure is a key also. And Abrahadabra. It shall be his child & that strangely. Let him not seek after this; for thereby alone can he fall from it.

 

/r/Tarot and /r/Bacon

My main account is “omfgninja” I’ve had account there for 8 years. When they launched the feature to start a new subreddit, I created a bunch of subreddits about things I was interested in at the time. Two of the subreddits that I’m the founder and lead moderator for are /r/Tarot and /r/Bacon . Reddit’s love of bacon can actually be traced back to when I started the subreddit and reddit.com started advertising it. I started both of these subreddits back in 2008. I didn’t crack the Tarot until 9/2011, I didn’t buy this book on geomancy until 9/2012. The first “rough draft” version of my correspondence work with many of the systems I’ve described, fit together was at 5/2013. I bought Crowley’s wand in 7/2013 and then Levi’s dagger in 8/2013, which was the item that triggered my knowledge of my previous lives.

One thought on “9 – My personal story”

  1. I came by “accident” across your opinion and actually I’m not such a great AC fan boy for several reasons because he has not so much grip on the sub/ject. Of course you can believe whatever suits your taste Steven – but whenever you want to expand your knowledge and start to think for yourself (Bacon COULD be a friend for you on that matter… ) you are very welcome to visit (and comment perhaps) on Tarothistory.com for ex: http://forum.tarothistory.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1044 and wherever it suits you.

    Have a great time
