It’s rare to run into any Thelema related poetry these days, good Thelemic poetry even less so. I accidentally stumbled on this one via an invocation of The Emperor. I literally navigated to it and purchased in a deep trance. Some of my favorite artists have been discovered this way so it’s a process I’ve learned to trust.
Aijin is not advertised as being related to the Book of the Law, but references to Liber al Vel Legis, Liber Tzaddi and the Book of Lies are prominent throughout the reading. Imagine my shock and awe when I realized I was reading Book of the Law quotes in a seemingly obscure and mundane looking little e-book I was lead to by the Emperor archetype.
The author admits to stealing from Crowley and Blake, midway through the book. The work tends to be a commentary on the true state of the world. I admit to having become quite high reading it. The book pushed my trance session straight into the stratosphere, without any entheogenic input at the time. I played Eve Online shortly afterwards and it was the most ecstatic experience I’ve ever had. I was listening to The Emperor himself speak through my fleet mates over comms.
I’m always careful to watch for hidden messages in works by artists of any kind, but especially the ones I’m lead to during trips. The muses, or, whatever it is I saw, once, for lack of a better term, wanted to reveal the way they work on this world through the minds of men, showing themselves to the chosen ones and disguising themselves from the minds of vulgar men. Some of this I’ll cover in an upcoming article for those of you who want to tap into the TwinStar’s entertainment potential. It’s really very good at this sort of thing – a flexing universe all around us that few dare to even imagine. I’ve seen it. And that’s all I need.
As i sit here and rule about the underworld,
and talk to the minions
and beautiful fucked saints and blood lovers
expanded outward and inward
over the half-faced geometrical map that be the ticking
clocks of war
vomiting earth’s bittersweet black bile crust
into each-other’s faces
transparent bodies watch blindly
weaving in and thru themselves
crying at the loss of such a formerly triumphant frequency
torn and lost they still whisper a slow calming rapture
grinding the sweetest noises out from the particles of dust
as their interwoven transparency gives position to yet
another tangled gesture
– Aijin: Draugur Stúlka
The book is quite lengthy, at 394 pages, and it’s the only work by the author, Ryan James LeBlanc.
It deals especially well with the conundrum of duality, riveting with its reverence and revulsion for every perspective about love and beauty under the sun. The author goes beyond the dark side into some pretty scary territory, necessary for any student of the abyss.
If you’re scared of Crowley, at any point, avoid this. If Crowley was a little too milquetoast for you and you liked the third chapter of the Book of the Law, you might find this to your taste.
You’ll find Nuit aplenty, as well as Hadit’s other sides. I didn’t pick up on a lot of Ra Hoor Khut, this is dealing with mainly very high Supernals material instead of the brewing room of Tiphareth.
It’s only available in Kindle/ebook form currently, the link to amazon is below.
After showcasing our timeline album over at IMGUR of The Mutational Alchemy Tarot a few people asked me to cover the publishing process from start to finish. I’ve seen a few Kickstarter projects asking for absurd amounts of money for low runs so in my opinion transparency is a good thing here.
Publishing a tarot is easier than you might think, especially with the ease of access to resources via the internet. While in the past hand cut decks were popular, they are very time consuming and thus they are very limited in distribution, numbering between 15-100 copies. Large factories can handle tens of thousands of copies as long as you can pay for them, and offer a wide array of services like gilding and different paper types.
The first thing you need to make sure of is that your art is of a high enough DPI, or resolution. The bigger the image the higher the quality of the final printing.
If you are painting or constructing the images digitally you’ll need to make sure that you’re painting with CMYK in mind, the inks that a printer uses. The computer you’re using has access to a lot more colors than a conventional printer, and more than even some of the advanced industrial printers you’ll possibly be sending your images to.
If you are painting traditionally you will need a good working knowledge of cameras, lighting setups and have the equipment itself, either rented, borrowed or owned. If you don’t wish to deal with this you can also hire a photographer to take pictures of your work. Expect to shell out at least $20 per photo for the photographer’s time, if they are professional. Make sure you get a high DPI digital version, and not prints. You can put this images in a photo editing program to make adjustments later on or send them directly to the printer.
I shouldn’t need to mention this, but under no circumstances should you ever use someone else’s images in your work. Whether it’s the likeness of a celebrity or a photo you cut out of magazine and painted, it’s stealing. (see http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/heart-of-stars-tarot/ for an example of what not to do – this is literally a crime and could never be picked up by a publisher or printer legally) If you use photo manipulation please make sue the image has the proper creative commons release or is in the public domain. There’s nothing wrong with that and it doesn’t hurt anyone’s livelihood or infringe on their individual rights. If you put a likeness of your friend in the tarot, make sure they’re okay with it first.
Getting it Published
Finally when all of your images are done and they are in digital form, (JPEG with at least 300 DPI resolution.) what do you do now? You can send it to a local printer if they have the equipment to handle a tarot deck. Most printers in the USA do not – they will print a sheet for you and you have to cut it yourself. There is a niche market for such handmade decks. Other times you’ll find that the quality is lacking and it can get expensive testing one printer after another.
Tarot cards used to be exclusively hand pressed and painted, so it is definately a real option for one-off’s especially, and well done lithographic tarot can become extremely sought after.
Some go with the publishing route, but if you do this you need to widely publicize your work on the deck during its creation and target a niche audience that represents the common occultist – highly advanced or innovative decks will not do well and publishers will rarely take a chance with them. As an example, we wrote to two publishers before deciding it would be in our best interest to retain all ownership rights. US Games told us outright that while they could see it was based on the Thoth, the nudity would offend their customers.
Llewellyn just ignored us despite writing to them twice.
Small Local Printers and Hand Cutting
Our first real option after this lull of publisher rejection was offered by a student of m1thr0s’s, MythMath who already had a lot of experience making homemade games and had made playing cards before using a corner rounder. We had been working on the pack for nearly five years at that point and he wanted to get The Mutational Alchemy Tarot printed right away, and ordered some difficult-to-source poker paper to get it done locally. The paper was luxurious, durable and flexible but the images were noticeably off center. The printer wasn’t equipped to handle cards and it was extremely cost prohibitive. To make one deck would require an investment of $200, and I knew there had to be a better way, considering companies churn out decks for $15 a pop over and over again with few major problems with centering.
If you want highly professional service dedicated to tarot printing alone, on state of the art machines, you will have to go to Los Angeles, New York, or…Asia.
The TwinStar Orders Us Around
In 2014 that taskmaster the TwinStar began pushing me hard to get the deck published en masse. Its urgent demands were something I knew could not be ignored, nor would it be overly difficult for me to obey them as it probably already had a printer lined up. You have to work with the TwinStar for a few years to begin to understand just how perfect it is in action and conversation – it’s never wrong, it always has your best and highest interests in mind, and it’s not worth arguing with it, as you will lose, badly!
I started researching possible companies to self publish, and found Make Playing cards.com, which was very expensive at $15.00 per deck and while the colors looked good the paper stock was flimsy like a run of the mill massmarket deck according to other users. I uploaded all of our images and ordered a test copy to see if it was worth ordering a big batch. They wrote us back stating they had a policy against nudity! I couldn’t believe it. There was no other option in the USA for wholesale printing jobs.
Ali Baba and the Forty Tarot Factories
Asia was a labryinth, but m1thr0s and I absolutely wanted to get our cards printed in China for magickal reasons. Navigating the maze of trade liasons, importers, manufacturing companies and factories however, was daunting and indimidating. Sending thousands of dollars halfway across the world is even scarier, since it was a business loan and there was no way we could afford to do it again, especially since we wern’t sure if it would pay for itself. It was an investment in the long term for TAI itself, so that the website, annual taxes and licensing would begin paying for itself at least, and m1thr0s and I could gift the ownership of the MAT to TAI to help any future leaders of it.
I did some research and found out that dealing with factories directly was more cost effective, while the alternatives such as importers who go to factories on your behalf are more expensive, but supposedly more reliable.
After reading an article on the topic of doing business in China I decided to seek out factories. I started on Ali Baba, the trade hub of the world for everything from handbags to 3D printing machines sold wholesale. I hung my signpost out that said I was looking for a publisher for high quality art cards with nudity “not porn”, hoping to avoid any surprises later on.
I got quite a few responses and had to take days looking at all of them, talking to agents about what I needed and what they were willing to do. I sorted them out by weeding out people who seemed to abrasive or hasty, people who didn’t represent the factory directly (they call these importers or trade liaisons, and while they can be very helpful I was trying to cut all of the extra costs to put everything into the decks) factories that seemed to focus only on poker cards instead of oracle and tarot, and finally I was left with my choice, Shenzhen Wanjing Printing Co. They had a very nice website on Ali Baba with lots of photos of their staff and factory, a very responsive and polite agent as well as lots and lots of details about what they could do. The pricing was up front and they took the time to give me quotes based on what I asked for, instead of just throwing a cheap number at me without any details on the weight of the paper and packaging options.
I was lucky in that I didn’t have to make any compromises, except for paying more than I would have going to another company. We got exactly what we wanted, from the neat tuckbox to the black bleed-to-edge border. We did have to resize each image very slightly to fit their template, which was a little bit bigger than what we had planned, although this was actually a plus. Everything cost about $5,000 for 500 decks. It can go a lot lower for lower quality paper such as the kind you find in mass-published tarot decks which are seemingly never more than 300 gsm. (ours are 350 gsm art paper)
firstname.lastname@example.org is the email address of our contact Fanny Yeung at Shenzhen Wangjing and they are the best. If you decide to use them tell them The Abrahadabra Institute and Izi sent you. They are very reputable and are used by big publishers as well.
Even if you can pay for it, can you afford it?
We hadn’t been recieving very much financial support for our work on Abrahadabra even though people would come to us constantly with questions and requests for advice. This was very upsetting to our local busines advisor and she told us to stop doing it. We had to put the entire amount on the credit we had built carefully over the years. m1thr0s was on disability since he was hit hard with COPD around the time I was familiarizing myself with his work. I had been working on the deck for 5 years while doing customer service and freelance on the side at very low paying jobs to support him and the entire Institute, so we didn’t have any savings to put towards it. There just isn’t enough time to work on these important scholarly subjects and work at a full time typical career job, that’s the bottom line, especially with m1thr0s needing more and more assistance physically at home due to his poor health.
Both m1thr0s and I are highly skilled artists, so I knew we would be able to sell them once they were published. I know a lot of occultists want to publish a deck but if your situation is fragile like ours usually is you shouldn’t dump everything into publishing a deck that might not sell. I knew all of these risks and the reality of the situation well before I started on the project, but after talking with others involved in the Abrahadabra Institute I knew it was important to have a graphical representation of the kind of ideas we are always going on about in a fun form factor.
Shipping is very expensive from China for heavy boxes and you should expect to tack on at least a thousand dollars for every 500 decks. They initially wanted to send it to a port but I couldn’t get any of the ports here to explain how to pick it up, so the easiest option was by air with UPS. The best part of choosing Shenzhen Wangjiang is that they reassured us and guided us every step of the way, and we ordered everything sight unseen without sending a quality controller. This is very risky but I had to trust that since things were going so smoothly my spirit lodge helpers were managing everything as they always do.
m1thr0s is way more marketing savvy than I am having been the chief director of marketing at the Anarchist-Chaote publisher Loompanics for years before being hit with COPD. First he had us notify our clan at Abrahadabra, asking them to check out the deck and give us reviews at Aeclectic which one person did. The rest of our loyalists who had eagerly been awaiting the deck to hit purchased one and we rewarded them with signed cards from the first printed copy as well as free shipping.
We posted ads on Facebook, Reddit and locally and received quite a response. A customer asked for us to do a video review and I did so using my smartphone which wasn’t hard. It’s pretty easy to do marketing like this, we could probably go harder at it by advertising in magazines and such but I don’t feel like it’s necessary at the moment due to selling them pretty quickly as it is. The biggest tarot site on the internet is Aeclectic Tarot so we felt like we should put the pack in the directory there, and generated quite a bit of activity surprisingly. Aeclectic tends to be a Rider-Waite crowd but it is inexpensive and important to register there as they are basically the only directory of tarot on the internet aside from Amazon. If you can’t afford anything else at least get on Aeclectic.
Whether you are looking to publish your own oracle deck for personal use, or you are an artist looking to make a name in tarot, I hope this article has been useful for you. As always feel free to ask questions in the comments and support us by buying your copy of The Mutational Alchemy Tarot!
Grab a truly tantric t-shirt design while they last! This magickal garment combines the ancient Kali Yantra merged stunningly to the TwinStar of modern day Mutational Alchemy. This version of the Kali Yantra emphasizes the 5 Koshas (literally sheaths) of the Body of Light while the TwinStar defines the most efficient means of scaling and thus transcending them, culminating in perfect mastery of the Atman, or the highest attainable state of transcendental consciousness. A perfect marriage between the very ancient and the very rare. A highly occult emblem that few will understand but all will appreciate and find difficult to avoid being captured by its magnetic spell!
This is a great unisex t-shirt for both men and women. Looks good on, and feels even better.

*Author’s Note* *All posts by m1thr0s at this site are amended articles extracted from a much bigger work-in-progress that will be defining Mutational Alchemy in all of its diverse principles and applications. Since there is a great deal to this topic which is many months away from completion, certain of its tenets deemed as standalone topics are being allowed to run ahead of the finished book. No responsible theoretician would ever imagine himself to be the only one pioneering important new insights all by himself so that where certain breakthroughs strike me as vital to the overall discussion at hand, these will occasionally find themselves posted as independent articles. This should serve several purposes at once, creating interest in the larger work on the one hand while facilitating a sense of fellowship with other pioneers at the same time.
Mutational Alchemy makes constant reference to the so-called Abrahadabra Grid so it is important that we take a good look at this structure and clarify both what it means and why it matters. The only tangible remnant of this magickal word-formula we have from history confines itself to a certain medical application whose form is inverted and whose function it is to attempt to reduce the physical impact of fevers or other aggressive maladies from a dominant to a diminished capacity. It was once common medical practice that physicians would proscribe certain meditations and/or ritual practices intended to embellish whatever medications might be given to their patients. In this way the patient was always an active player in their ensuing cure which rendered the practice of medicine part-science, part-art and thus all-magick in the end.
Mutational Alchemy has a much more ambitious objective in mind, since Abrahadabra has been hailed as a most auspicious magickal word invested with tremendous power above and beyond the routine treatment of the sick. Aleister Crowley’s commentaries on Liber Al vel Legis (alongside his other writings) frames it as a misapprehended key to Praeter-Human Stars, yet throughout Crowley’s persistent volumes of endless rants on the subject it is never made especially clear why this word should be accredited so lofty a status. We are left to our own devises to determine (first) if there is any reason to think it may have some unique relationship to Stars at all and (second) what types of applications may ultimately validate its usefulness towards this unexpected end.
An inordinate amount of time has already been invested into the literal meaning of the word which has ultimately revealed very little of any real consequence. While a few outspoken individuals have insisted on its Aramaic origins, having the general interpretation “I create as I speak”, cooler heads have ultimately rejected this strained interpretation as both forced and academically unsustainable. The word literally means nothing that any responsible scholarship can resolutely confirm at this point in time. And yet the word has survived down through the ages and has almost always been associated to magick in some way. Perhaps the fact that it literally has no other meaning is one of its more defensible characteristics, but if we are going to assert that it does in fact have some especially important correlation to Stars, then we had better start looking at other reasons why this might possibly be true.
The syncretic approach to magickal word analysis offers us certain advantages not always enjoyed by other methodologies. In the case of Abrahadabra we have a well developed internal geometry that cross-references easily with other well known glyphs that allows us a more pictographic accounting of its inherent topological characteristics. Some of these are especially revealing as we shall see. Since this word is typically expressed as having eleven letters at its base reduced by one letter per eleven rows until we arrive at a solitary letter at either apex or antapex, we get the sum of sixty-six letters in total for the equivalent of an eleven-letter word repeated exactly six times. The extended word is generally not expressed in this precise way though the historical record does not tell us all the ways that might have been acceptable renderings. Inasmuch as the geometry of the word itself is unconcerned with directional considerations, we are especially interested in its ascending form for reasons which will become more evident as we proceed.
Abrahadabra Grid Proofs 001 – Figure 1
Having established our basic ground rules, we can now replace our 66 letters with simple points, connecting these together with straight lines to give us a proper grid. One of the first things we observe upon doing this is that the large equilateral triangle incorporates exactly 100 internal triangles, counting both ascending and descending forms. This is important because it corresponds to the magickal square of Earth (aka the Qamea of Earth, or Malkuth : Kingdom) This tells us that Abrahadabra is in some sense intended to convey the idea of Earth in Perfect Balance – something I suspect that most of us can agree is generally lacking in Earth in general. The second thing we can clearly observe is a balanced subset of ascending triangles adhering to the well-known symmetry of the Pythagorean Tetractys with its ten component parts spanning the entire structure from top to bottom. These are displayed in Figure 2 as lightly shaded triangles. When I first noticed this I coined them *the Secret Chiefs* as they appeared to me to be like guardian chieftains standing over the greater tribe of equilateral triangles. I even use the term *Pythagoras’s Revenge* on occasion referencing the return of *Logos* – a very important concept in Pythagorean thought since this symbol was heralded as supreme among all others and was called the *manifestation of God on Earth* according to the great perfection the Pythagoreans read into its symbolism. Last (but not least) we get a rather startling array of four concentric circles descending from the very top to the very bottom of the Abrahadabra Grid, whose appearance in this instance is not only unexpected, but corresponds exactly to the single most important Qabbalistic Glyph we know of: the Four Elemental Worlds giving rise to the Tree of Life itself, as we will begin to examine in greater detail.
Abrahadabra Grid Proofs 001 – Figure 2
The perfect placement of the four concentric rings within the Abrahadabra Grid is so profound, one hardly knows where to begin their technical explanation. The entire story of the Creation of the Universe begins around the Four Elemental Worlds and their descent from Ain Soph Aur (The Boundless Light of Nothingness) through a succession of manifest unfoldings to the material worlds below culminating in Malkuth (aka Kingdom) at the lowest rung. In the Far East they are recognized as corresponding to the Four Cardinal (binary) Bigrams: An Old Yang, A Young Yang, A Young Yin and an Old Yin respectively. In the West they assume the elemental constitutions of Fire, Air, Earth and Water but their definitions go much further than this alone. It would take the average student years to become even adequately acquainted with their properties and literally all of Creation follows upon their heels. The entire doctrine of the Adam Kadmon (the first, perfected Man) is rooted in their principle, while the super-symmetry established in their coordinated alliance both establishes and maintains the whole of Creation itself. All of this is perfectly well known in qabbalistic circles, but what it not well known and has virtually never been discussed (that I know of) is the intimate involvement of Abrahadabra in relation to this entire Creation mythos! Looking carefully at Figure 3 we find each of the Four Elemental Worlds is balanced out by its own unique Tetractys, which again is echoed in the omnipresence of the so-called Secret Chiefs across the greater grid itself! How on earth could something as profound as this ever possibly have been missed and what are we to make of it now that we are confronted with it at the level of plane geometry? It has always been more or less assumed that the Tree of Life is such a vast cosmological construct altogether outclassing all possibility of human comprehension that it must surely be a standalone system requiring no other components to complete itself, yet here we find a very clear indication that Abrahadabra is there from the very beginning, more or less guiding the process of Creation at one remove as it were. This is our first unavoidable suggestion that the Tree of Life is a physiological subset of the Abrahadabra Grid! The Book of Genesis reminds us: In the Beginning there was the Word… and here we find an exceptional Word that technically precedes The Tree of Life, generallyattributed to the so-called Adam Kadmon, or Perfected Man which is the biblical proto-human being!
Abrahadabra Grid Proofs 001 – Figure 3
The idea that Trees may be mathematical subsets of Stars and that Stars may better define human potentiality than Trees is actually not a difficult thing to wrap our minds around once we begin breaking things down at the energetic level. The technical solution has been right in front of us all along but we have had a difficult time knowing how to make the adjustment. When the DNA code was discovered in 1953, geneticists were astonished at what a vast range of possibilities could all be defined at the binary level. Many physicists even today are convinced that there is nothing which cannot ultimately be defined within the binaries, but several thousand years ago a secondary system was postulated that put consciousness on an even footing with matter and that system was the ternary system developed by the Taoist Alchemists of ancient China. One of the things that fascinated the Pythagoreans about the Tetractys is that it corresponds to the ternaries and thus defines an entire energy codification system rooted in three principal energy flux properties instead of the usual two more indicating of the binaries. Mutational Alchemy maintains that Stars are fundamentally ternary coded systems different from Life’s other great Kingdoms rooted principally in the binaries. The difference, in a nutshell, is consciousness and at this time there is no certified proof that this theory is 100% accurate. It is a cutting-edge alchemical theory looking for some way to validate itself, but the theory itself is not new. In Figure 4 there is demonstrated several types of elemental notation that serves to identify how the ternaries are defined at the level of their most basic compound (bigrammal) properties. Where the binaries give us 4 basic elements, the ternaries give us 9 and in every exceptional circumstance denoting a ternary compound, at least one line value incorporates consciousness. Even whether it is more accurate to say consciousness or intelligence is not entirely clear but despite these ambiguities it is perfectly possible for us to identify these properties mathematically and even simulate them tantrically. The tentative prediction is that we will eventually uncover an altogether new kind of codified energy matrix that has been with us all along, similar to DNA but that it operates at the ternary level instead of the binary. Naturally we might think that this is simply atomic energy itself but indications are that it has more to do with the principle of focused intention or will in some way not fully grasped at present.
Abrahadabra Grid Proofs 001 – Figure 4
In Figure 5 we are looking at how the Tree of Life Sephiroth line up against the Abrahadabra Grid. The doctrine of the Sephiroth (Hebrew word for numbers) links these energetic epicenters to different aspects of the human body itself, whereas the Secret Chiefs (which also have their associated numbers) correspond to the Star Body, not ordinarily accessible to people unless they have taken the required time to power it up. Powering up the Star Body is nowhere near as complicated a process as most people would probably assume, but here in the West we have mostly lost the knowledge and conversation of Tantric Infusion, also referred to as Alchemical Projection in Mutational Alchemy. This can easily be restored but people have to show some interest in redeeming their Body of Light estates. No one is obliged to teach others things they have no desire to learn and no one is inherently entitled to this knowledge simply by virtue of being human. All of that aside, there is no doubt that utilizing the Star to energize and balance the Tree is the most efficient means available to us and eventually evolves into an incredibly intricate transmutational science.
It happens that there are numerous versions of the Tree of Life in circulation, but Mutational Alchemy has found a way to resolve which of these is the most useful and is ultimately the most correct. I will address this in future articles since, for right now, the important thing to take away from this article is the understanding that the Tree of Life is a mathematical subset of the Abrahadabra Grid which Mutational Alchemy defines as technically synonymous with Stars directly. When others speak of Abrahadabra they are talking about a makeshift Word of Power. When Mutational Alchemy speaks of Abrahadabra we are talking about literal Stars themselves.
◈◈◈ Abrahadabra IStheStar ◈◈◈
There is also a very strong relationship between the Kabbalistic Adam Kadmon and Abrahadabra; the principal difference being that it has generally been assumed that Man was the principal focus of Creation. Evidence I have repeatedly reviewed suggests that this assumption may have always been in error but that we lacked the proper language to draw the necessary distinction between Trees and Stars in terms of a coherent mathematics until quite recently. It has virtually never even occurred to us that the focus of Creation might have been Stars, so that the so-called Primordial Man may not look very much like a conventional Man at all! Moreover, it seems as though the Egyptians may have got it righter than most where its godforms were typically considered to have two most essential manifest options: the man-like form when standing firmly upon the Earth and the collected Wadjet form when lifted up or otherwise at one remove from Earth. This type of iconographic symbolism effectively consolidates Tree and Star manifest forms in one, roughly equating to binary and ternary mathematical synergistics, where the Tree is rooted in the binaries and the Star is rooted in the ternaries.
Abrahadabra is not just some austere word that represents Stars allegorically. It is an encrypted alchemical formula defining Stars quite literally at the level of their anatomical physics. Aleister Crowley seems to have missed this critical detail as evidenced by his general failure to correctly insist upon the Tree of Life as a mathematical subset of Abrahadabra itself. He simply could not get past his own pernicious indoctrination in the end. This is why we find him stubbornly confining himself to Abrahadabra’s role within the Tree of Life, as though that information had anything new or especially meaningful to offer future generations. No matter who you are, if you miss this pivotal detail you’ve probably missed Abrahadabra’s technical significance entirely. You would subsequently be left with no adequate explanation as to why Ra Hoor Khut would personally endorse this word above all others. The truth of what I am reporting here is contained within a vast range of technical proofs that I have studied for nearly 40 years, have gone public with since April, 2002 and am in the process of updating almost daily. Study these proofs as they emerge and draw your own conclusions but the implications are stark and gravely challenging and should be considered among the most important esoteric disclosures ever revealed. If we do not have a very clear idea of what Praeter-Human Stars are, there isn’t much we can do about it at a time when direct assertive action is what we most desperately need to be engaging. It is not at all certain how long this window of opportunity will be available to us what with apocalyptic frenzy having reached unparalleled pandemic proportions in this morbidly nihilistic world.
Abrahadabra Grid Proofs 001 – Figure 5
Abrahadabra has been called a *glyph of the Great Work in completion*, which is a reasonably catchy phrase but actually tells us next to nothing. If Abrahadabra has something of value to offer us we need to break this annoying habit of assigning nonsensical value to it and replace that with the value that it really does represent; value that can be independently verified and subsequently acted upon. Scrutinizing the Abrahadabra Grid is a good place to begin this process since it turns out to have some very remarkable characteristics we would almost certainly be operating at a severe handicap for lack of understanding. At this pass, much of what it has to tell us is still occurring at the theoretical level but the sheer volume of startling information it reveals is sufficient cause for us to step up our investigation as aggressively as possible. It’s (encrypted) imagery appears to be doing a great deal more than painting a pretty picture of what Stars look like for instance. Rather, it appears to be revealing a comprehensive biostellar physics that identifies what Praeter-Human Stars are as well as how they work. Armed with this unexpected physics, there may ultimately be nothing we cannot accomplish by way of mastering its underscoring principles and training them to suit our various purposes.
Carefully examining Figure 6 tells us something very important about a fundamental difference between the Abrahadabra Grid and the Qabbalistic (aka Kabbalistic) Tree of Life. Even though the Tree of Life can be said to be nestled under the umbrella of Ain Soph Aur (the Boundless Light of Nothingness), it has no direct access to it! There is no path or other structural bridging that takes us right up to its physical location. For all practical intents and purposes, The Tree of Life begins at Kether, whose number is 1, not 0! The Abrahadabra Grid, by way of contrast, stems directly from 0 and unfolds uniformly all the way to 10 (called Malkuth, or Kingdom). This is just one among numerous reasons we are justified in asserting that the Tree of Life is a mathematical subset of the Abrahadabra Grid; that the Tree is something like its Magickal Child, carried safely within its own independent Body of Light. It happens that the Secret Chief that occupies the apex position also bears a number, whose number is 1, but the 1 of the Abrahadabra Grid vs the 1 of the Tree of Life are two very different kinds of 1, since the 1 of the Abrahadabra Grid is physically merged with Ain Soph Aur in no uncertain terms. Thus we get a logical distinction between the ideas of Crown (Kether) and what we might think of as the Highest Crown of Abrahadabra itself! Mutational Alchemy holds with this notion of the Tree of Life as a mathematical subset of Abrahadabra and in the many articles and images to follow at Abrahadabra.com, we will be exploring all the reasons we believe that Abrahadabra is both a pragmatic key and a full-fledged technology to literal Praeter-Human Stars.
