vertical & horizontal hexagrammal pairs

*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 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 like pioneers at the same time.

One of the most central tasks of Mutational Alchemy has been aligning the 32 hexagrammal pairs of the Yi Jing (aka I Ching) to the 32 Sephiroth and Paths of the Qabbalistic Tree of Life. While the Yi Jing consists of 64 binary hexagrams in total, the convention (since the time of the King Wen arrangement) has been to group them together in 32 balanced pairs. The majority of these balanced pairs are referred to as vertical pairs (or inverted pairs), indicating that the  second hexagram is exactly the same as the first one, turned 180 degrees on its head.  In cases where the second hexagram produces the exact same hexagram as the first, the convention has been to resort to horizontal pairs (or lateral pairs) where each line of the second hexagram is the polar opposite of that same line in the first one. In this way all of the hexagrams 1-64 can be reduced to 32 balanced pairs of one type or the other, without omissions or duplications of any kind.

The reason we would like to be able to do this stems from two most apparent observations regarding both of these metaphysical systems viewed as a natural syncretic fusion. In the first instance there has always existed the general doctrine of balancing opposites within the Tree of Life itself as the recommended methodology of maintaining a kind of peak efficiency therein but also as a means of increasing our ability to receive and transmit mind and matter energy by way of calculated wave-cancellations achieving a type of zeroing effect thought to be essential to the alchemical levity principle. According to this doctrine (asserted both east and west) we are able to experience ethereal ascension (and everything that this entails) by means of balancing opposites in some deliberate way. Thus, by degree, we are able to liberate the Tree of Life from all of those constraints that clog its circuitry or drag against it continuously. Make no mistake about this. The Tree of Life suffers relentless assaults in this world left unattended. Take good care of your Tree and it will take good care of you. Abandon it and all bets are off.

Drawing upon focused intention we are able to align the Tree of Life as a whole in accordance to the Divine Will of Kether (Crown) from the lowest planes to the loftiest plateaus. Since Mutational Alchemy has evolved a method of simulating hexagrammal structures as a controlled visualization exercise, the 32 balanced pairs of the Yi Jing amount to a perfect template for achieving this dynamic balancing of opposites. That the Yi Jing is built upon the same mathematical matrix as the DNA code itself means we have a very high level of confidence in its intrinsic application to life in all its forms, from the lowliest little mushroom to Albert Einstein and beyond. But how can we know which hexagrammal pairs are best suited to the various coordinates within the Tree of Life?  While it is possible to identify several discreet numerical chronologies within the 64 binary hexagrams, the Tree of Life offers us no such ordering mechanism until the Proximity Principle is finally invoked.

the ten sephiroth
figure #1 – the ten sephiroth

Figure #1:  In order to understand how and why the Proximity Principle works as perfectly as it does we need to first run through a very basic primer on the qabbalistic Tree of Life. We begin from the ten sephiroth commonly referred to as the ten vessels or the ten emanations of Ain Soph Aur, or the Limitless Light from which all things originate and are thought to return eventually. There is much which can be said of how these ten sephiroth came to be but what most concerns us here is that they are identified as enumerations (or numbers). By default, this means that in qabbalistic thinking numbers are the highest expression of mind and matter. They are the purest language we can turn to in unravelling the mysteries of Life in its infinite diversity and are thus our surest guide to Truth as well. Numbers allow us to scrutinize the whole of creation without assuming anything with respect to God or some other imagined Creator operating  behind the curtain as it were. Numbers do not tell why things are as they are since they chiefly attend to the what but in many cases the why can be gleaned logically on the basis of  rational necessity laid down in the numbers.

Not included in Figure #1 are the topological constances of  Ain Soph Aur or its antapex counterpoint Daath which positions between sephiras 3 and 4 on the Tree of Life schematic.  That’s because neither of these epicenters are regarded as vessels per se, nor even emanationsbut are hidden (even from the hidden) and have never been considered to be sephiroth in themselves. Their roles are paramount in all cases but their properties are set apart from the Sephiroth and Paths.  We approach them somewhat differently than sephiroth and paths accordingly.

the lightning bolt
figure #2 – the lightning bolt

Figure #2:  illustrates the ten sephiroth superimposed by what is typically referred to as the lightning bolt. There are two kinds of lightning bolt descending from Kether (Sephira #1, Crown) generally conforming to the principles of Yin and Yang of which the one displayed here is the dominant, Yang bolt. There are numerous ways to analyze the lightning bolts but for our purpose at this time the important point to observe is that it establishes the chronology of the ten sephiroth from one to ten. Chronology is the science of arranging events in their order of occurrence in time, so the lightning bolt is giving us our timeline while the sephiroth are the discreet events occurring along that timeline.  The lightning bolt is also coordinating space since it begins from an above beginning (or alpha) location and concludes at a below (or omega) one. In all, we have a coherent Heaven Descending chronology established which coincidentally adheres to a 4:4 timing making it especially robust in terms of visualization applications.

That the chronological ordering of the ten sephiroth is entirely coherent means that we can implement that standard uniformly across the Tree of Life Paths as well. Exactly why this seems to have never been done before is something I have no explanation for but this is a good time to point out that the qabbalistic Tree of Life is an ongoing work in progress with numerous competing fractions attacking it from both similar and dissimilar points of view. Nor is linear chronology the only possible standard for us to build upon, but it is at least one standard that can be applied correctly without resorting to ambiguous subjective rationalizations.

the 22 manifest paths
figure #3 – the 22 manifest paths

Figure #3:  illustrates the dominant Tree of Life today with its 22 manifest paths, but there are more than one Tree of Life in circulation and there have been some pretty smart people proclaiming some terribly inaccurate models, apparently unable to ascertain the gaping holes in their own logic. The Tree of Life is a perennial theme across many cultures over very long spans of time. I will explain the importance of the arrows in a moment.

Mutational Alchemy has a distinct advantage over other models by virtue of having an actual physics brewing at the heart of everything. That raises the bar by more than just a notch or two and forces us to go where others may have feared to go in foregone epochs.  But the Tree of Life has become a compendium of half-logics over time where the standards being adhered to are lacking any respectable system of checks and balances, so people can assert just about anything and no one can correct them except to say that it does (or does not) agree with some other half-baked assertion.  Mutational Alchemy confines itself to falsifiable truth as much as humanly possible and this allows us a very different approach than we see in most other models.

the 16 hidden paths
figure #4 – the 16 hidden paths

Figure #4:  displays the 16 hidden paths  which ought to have garnered a great deal more attention than they have by now. The 16 hidden paths (aka the hidden diamond) define all those pathways not accounted for in the 22 manifest paths system. There are many characteristics of the hidden diamond that make it vital to any serious discussion of the inner workings of the Tree of Life. I am including it here as a kind of rebuttal of the Lurianic Tree of Life arrangement as well as various other arrangements that may assert a different ordering of paths without considering the stunning uniformity of the Hidden Diamond taken as a whole. In point of fact it has hardly been observed at all – an omission which (once again) leaves us dealing only in half-truths with respect to Tree of Life analytics. In Mutational Alchemy, the Hidden Diamond is accounted for via the 16 binary tetragrams which more-or-less parallel the so-called 16 geomantic figures (popular with medieval kabbalists) but for certain alchemical errors found rampant within that historical doctrine and methodology.  Another term for the 16 binary tetragrams is Tetragrammaton, since that is exactly what they amount to. How or why this could be so adamantly disregarded for so long is anyone’s best guess but it should serve as a reminder to us all how much work has been left unattended with respect to the Tree of Life.

the 48 sephiroth & paths
figure #5 – the 48 sephiroth & paths

Figure #5:  simply combines figures #3 & #4 to clarify the totality of Tree of Life paths available to us. It is always a good practise to take stock of all available possibilities and resources when embarking on a project involving any sort of alchemical distillation.  This allows us to be reasonably confident that we have not omitted anything vital to our final calculations, or if anything is omitted, that it can be accounted for on some coherent basis. If we were creating a map of any geological terrain, we might leave out underground water tables for instance, reserving that for a different kind of map altogether. In many respects the type of map we are dealing with in the Tree of Life is even simpler than the geological map would be, despite it being infinitely more important.

So at this point we should easily recognize that we are looking at 10 Sephiroth and a grand total of 38 linear paths, 22 of which can be deemed emanative or manifest + 16 secretive or hidden. The so-called Proximity Principle should (if we needed it to) be able to tell us the proper chronological order of either all or some of these linear pathways; which ever we choose to emphasize. As we will see, it does exactly that…

numbered sephiroth & paths
figure #6 – numbered sephiroth & paths

Figure #6:  Probably the first thing to be observed here is that this really isn’t very complicated. The only complication going on with this rationale is how so many reasonably intelligent and informed people seem to have altogether missed it, or else grossly underestimated the cost of downplaying it.

RULE: The closer the numerical proximity sephira to sephira, the smaller the path number.
Inversely: The further the numerical proximity sephira to sephira, the larger the path number.
Note: Since the Sephiroth 1-10 precede the Paths, our first path begins at #11:

◉Starting from Sephira #1: Three unclaimed manifest paths  (1–2, 1–3, 1–6)
◉sephira 1–2 = path #11  |  ◉sephira 1–3 = path #12  |  ◉sephira 1–6 = path #13

◉Starting from Sephira #2: Three unclaimed manifest paths  (2–3, 2–4, 2–6)
◉sephira 2–3 = path #14  |  ◉sephira 2–4 = path #15  |  ◉sephira 2–6 = path #16

◉Starting from Sephira #3: Two unclaimed manifest paths  (3–5, 3–6)
◉sephira 3–5 = path #17  |  ◉sephira 3–6 = path #18

◉Starting from Sephira #4: Three unclaimed manifest paths  (4–5, 4–6, 4–7)
◉sephira 4–5 = path #19  |  ◉sephira 4–6 = path #20  |  ◉sephira 4–7 = path #21

◉Starting from Sephira #5: Two unclaimed manifest paths  (5–6, 5–8)
◉sephira 5–6 = path #22  |  ◉sephira 5–8 = path #23

◉Starting from Sephira #6: Three unclaimed manifest paths  (6–7, 6–8, 6–9)
◉sephira 6–7 = path #24  |  ◉sephira 6–8 = path #25  |  ◉sephira 6–9 = path #26

◉Starting from Sephira #7: Three unclaimed manifest paths  (7–8, 7–9, 7–10)
◉sephira 7–8 = path #27  |  ◉sephira 7–9 = path #28  |  ◉sephira 7–10 = path #29

◉Starting from Sephira #8: Two unclaimed manifest paths  (8–9, 8–10)
◉sephira 8–9 = path #30  |  ◉sephira 8–10 = path #31

◉Starting from Sephira #9: One unclaimed manifest path  (9–10)
◉sephira 9–10 = path #32

That is the short and long of the Proximity Principle!  It is not a complicated rule of thumb in itself. It is both strong and irrefutable if we are going to base our path numerations on rational chronological ordering. Mutational Alchemy can do this without any hesitation inasmuch as it aspires to a falsifiable truth in all cases and is not beholden to any hand-me-down doctrines requiring of us to blindly acquiesce on the basis of faith alone. The Proximity Principle  affords us the ability to chronologically align the 32 hexagrammal pairs of the Yi Jing to the 32 Sephiroth and Paths of the qabbalistic Tree of Life with a high degree of confidence, complete with an inscrutable (internal) checks & balances. That confidence cannot be shattered by any rational criticisms I have ever been able to identify in the nearly 40 years I have been closely monitoring this state-of-the-art alchemical thesis.

22 hebrew letters
figure #7 – 22 hebrew letters

Figure #7:  demonstrates the logical placement of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet in coordinated alliance with the Proximity Principle. Eliphas Levi is often credited as the first occult scholar to have made this connection, which was later picked up and expounded upon by certain members of the Golden Dawn. In the Hebrew language, letters double as numbers and are assigned composite personality profiles as well as an odd assortment of alchemical attributions. There are at least two kinds of chronological orderings for us to be aware of which are very different from each other. The first type of chronology is empirical where events along a timeline are fundamentally objective, such as occurs with numbers. The second type of chronology is consensual  where events along a timeline are fundamentally subjective, and are thus more volatile and subject to change at any time. We can still make use of consensual chronologies but are much less able to rely upon them accordingly.

alchemical attributions
figure #8 – alchemical attributions

Figure #8:  catalogues the conventional alchemical assignments we find in practice at the time of this writing, in concert with the Proximity Principle such that their exact positionings are unique to this methodology and subject to change at a moment’s notice.  Here again, we can assimilate these kinds of orderings, but cannot rely upon them to be especially enduring. We even find multiple variations of these assignments asserted by the same author at different periods of their lives, so we can extrapolate from this that all such assertions are highly volatile by their natures, the crux of which is rooted in their consensual constitutions. The hexagrammal fields system asserted under Mutational Alchemy are of the empirical kind and are thus highly stable with the passing of time.  I am not listing those assigments here at this time but rather reserving that for another article and/or articles.

adjusted thoth assignments
figure #9 – adjusted thoth assignments

Figure #9:  demonstrates the effect of the Proximity Principle on the Book of Thoth tarot system created by Aleister Crowley and illustrated by Lady Frieda Harris. Crowley introduces a few changes of his own in that undertaking but still leaves the matter of positioning dangling precariously without adjustment, apparently oblivious of the fact that a rather serious problem exists here. In general, issues of this sort do not get addressed until we hit a crisis of some kind forcing their resolution. Mutational Alchemy can tackle this problem better than anyone else to date, simply because we need to know where each of these 32 balanced hexagrammal pairs belong with respect to the Tree of Life. Were there no particular need to resolve this technical issue it would probably go unchecked for another thousand years or more. Fortunately this particular need does exist so that this problem has now been identified and corrected. It may still take awhile for most people to become aware of the matter at all, but when they do they will be pleased to know that it has been thoroughly studied and spectacularly resolved.

note: where certain card positions have changed it is because they link to certain Hebrew Letters, so it is these letter/number assignments that is correcting their positions. Liber Al vel Legis (aka the Book of the Law) addresses Thoth assignments at one point in one small passage. It only addresses letter/image assignments and says nothing regarding positions. Book of Thoth enthusiasts will be pleased to know that Mutational Alchemy has not altered ANY of these letter/image assignments but where the Proximity Principle has repositioned a few letter/number values, the Book of Thoth positions have also changed. Everything follows on the numbers in this system.

twinstar-numbers-complete

*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 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 like pioneers at the same time.

tikkun olam is a Hebrew phrase that means “repairing the world” (or “healing the world”) referring to humanity’s shared responsibility to heal, repair and transform the world. This notion of assuming responsibility for the entire world is not unique to any one culture and forms the basis of what is sometimes referred to as the path of the *spiritual warrior*.  In Lurianic Kabbalah we encounter some very specific ideas of how this is achieved by means of liberating the 10 sephiroth (or numbers) of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. Luria taught that the Sephiroth (also called vessels) had become damaged in the first round of the Creation, making it necessary that these broken shards be returned to Ain Soph (the Boundless Light) from where they first originated. This is an allegorical tale hyphenating the need for us to manage our own mental debris, raising the standard of Mind itself. Mutational Alchemy goes on to demonstrate that the Tetractys of the Decad is ultimately the most efficient means of accomplishing this. The Tetractys unfolds symmetrically in four distinct stages finally culminating in Abrahadabra which contains 10 x 10 triangular *chambers* within itself distinguishing both Tree and Star divisions all contingent upon the number 10 – a number most often associated to Malkuth (Kingdom) and thus *the world* as well as *universe*, kabbalistically speaking. So we find that repairing ourselves is essentially synonymous with the principle tikkun olam.  *Physician, heal thyself!* the age-old axiom recants. Only by way of healing our spiritual selves does healing the world become rationally attainable.

While an in-depth study of the Tetractys eventually leads us to a symbiotic binary & ternary mathematics culminating in a highly complex anatomical physics, there are a few exemplary roadmaps in route to this that do not require of us to have fully mastered that more comprehensive physics. Indeed, on the face of it, it might take us a thousand or more years to do any such thing! What has come to be called the TwinStar is outstanding among these more distilled symbological roadmaps. Thus the TwinStar is most often passed on to seekers of this greater knowledge even at the beginning stages of their development, as it is known to comprise that greater knowledge within itself and can dispense that knowledge interactively with dedicated application and study. This can only be communicated experientially at this pass, despite the fact that there exists a growing body of data suggesting that we will eventually be able to prove it empirically as well. For the moment we are still relying upon the faithful accounts of individuals doing their own work and reporting their own individual findings.

The TwinStar is of the rarest class of magickally charged symbols expressing a kind of topological super-symmetry rooted in specialized numerical arrangements. The counting of these numbers in their proper sequence creates a kind of magnetic ley-line effect and the most potent of these are called unicursal glyphs as they are infinitely repeating symbols whose alpha and omega points are the same at the level of plane geometry. The most famous of these rare symbols is known as the Great Seal of Saturn in Western mystery traditions:

This arrangement of 9 sequential numbers is called magickal because all horizontal, vertical and diagonal rows of numbers produce the same value (15) whereas the resulting symbol is weighed auspicious for being compliant, coherent, unicursal and also conforming to 4:4 time rhythmically. It is thus highly adaptable to the pronunciation of various four-fold words of power, whether names of God or other dynamic four-fold mantras. Altogether we derive a means of both expressing and alchemically projecting some imagined form of Unity.  It is important to acknowledge that we are engaging the faculty of imagination in this type of visualization exercise but we are at the same time adhering to a well defined set of logical rules such that both hemispheres of the physical brain are equally engaged.  It is generally maintained that this sort of sigil is capable of producing a wide range of possible impacts, from stilling the mind to unlocking miraculous phenomenological events of many kinds, all rooted in the focused intent of the individual performing the operation.

The following glyph demonstrates how the Tetractys of the Decad interacts with the Kabbalistic Tree of Life which is constructed symmetrically to the human body itself. It is important to understand that the TwinStar (which is built upon the Tetractys) imposes a higher order of Unity upon the Tree of Life in total, having the general effect of collecting it into itself while retaining it intact, since the Tree of Life is a mathematical subset of the Tetractys as well as Abrahadabra. Thus we refer to it as the *Star* and often use the term *star alchemy* in referencing its properties. It is vitally important for the student to understand that Kabbalah (aka Qabbalah, Caballa, etc) is an ongoing work in progress where the image you are scrutinizing at this moment in time marks a significant turning of the page from older models to the new. In this image the Tetractys is expressed as the 10 shaded triangles, sometimes referred to as the Secret Chiefs according to their unique positioning within the 100 internal triangles of Abrahadabra.

There is so much going on with this visualization practice that it would be impossible to summarize it all within the confines of a blog. Moreover I just like having it posted like a lighthouse beacon quietly broadcasting its signal over and over again where some will learn from it directly and others will wonder and perhaps explore its premise on their own initiative. Still others may gain from its presence without ever knowing how or why!  For those who wish to learn how to perform it, you should always begin from the Widdershins Rotation, progressing through the Deiseil Rotation and finalizing with the Final Close actions – in that order. Follow the arrows and words as well as you can until you are finally able to perform the entire thing from memory.

So that is the gist of things in an extremely reduced nutshell, but there are still a few things that need a little clarifying that will leave most people hopelessly lost or confused if omitted: (1) it always takes two rotations to result in a complete TwinStar sigil, rendering the conceptual subtext one of symbiosis at all times. Aside from the numbers 1-10, there are two other numerical properties involved in the creation of the TwinStar: The property of Ain Soph (also Ain Soph Aur) resides at apex from which everything originates and is subsequently drawn. The property of Daath ( i.e.  Knowledge) which rests between Sephiroth 3 & 4 in the Tree of Life but completes the triangle in the TwinStar.

Anatomically, Daath corresponds to the ayurvedic throat chakra and is thus linked to the faculty of speech. Although its sephirotic identity is hotly contested, Mutational Alchemy’s position is that it qualifies as a pragmatically validateable *not-sephiroth*, or *not-number* contributing syntax and grammar to the sephiroth as a whole. It is especially significant that it comes to unite with Ain Soph (whose numerical value is 0) in the TwinStar visualization practise.  Daath is well known as a collection point for every kind of mental debris whereby unconscious ignorance is able to gain a foothold over us, distorting our sense of who we are and what our purpose may be. The fact that we routinely route it through Ain Soph in this visualization practise means we have a means of flushing it of all this kind of mental garbage and restoring it to its primal serenity and calm. It is one of the many dynamic characteristics of this particular alchemical projection exercise.

twinstar-hemispherical01

The method of creation being employed in this demonstration is called the *numbers method*. Numbers are possessed of enormous integrity that demand very little of us while affording us a nearly frictionless method of operations. By *frictionless* I mean that there is very little psychological debris associated to numbers in themselves, even though some have become resistant to numbers due chiefly to negative associations acquired through public education or other kinds of traumatic exposure. In cases like this we need to restore their true relation to ourselves as they are not our enemy but among our staunchest allies. They work especially well when pioneering kinds of action we may not have every reason to be trusting, thus allowing us a full range of rational skepticism via an absolute minimum of applied belief. If there is any downside to this, it is probably that they tend to make for a rather awkward grounding action in themselves. For this I am applying the formulas A-U-M-N (to the circle) and A-H-U-A  / A-Th-H (to the triangle) both ascending and on the final drop.  These word formulas have a long and tested history but no part of the mantras being employed here are necessarily etched in stone. They are offered here as being exemplary and that is all at this moment in time that is all that is required. The word A-U-M-N simply divides the circle into 4 even parts. The Words A-H-U-A / A-Th-H create the ascending triangle which then drops plumb (from apex) and floats quietly back to center. The alchemical formula Hua-Athh has a special relationship to Abrahadabra as both words add to 418. So again – as neutral a word formulas as we may be able to find, allowing us a means of testing the visualization practise without committing much more than a prudent attention to details.

Abrahadabra Grid Proofs 001 

*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

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

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, generally attributed to the so-called Adam Kadmon, or Perfected Man which is the biblical proto-human being!

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.

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 IS the Star   

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 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.
