the sexes: via bigrammaton to tetragrammaton

We don’t really sully ourselves with popular politics around here, since there’s already a plethora of articles from both sides of the fence out there. We’re dealing in stars, so the conversation necessarily has to anticipate the world hundreds of years from now. So while I will be attempting to lay out some pretty deep Tetragrammaton shit regarding gender issues, I’m going to try to avoid playing too much into the popular rhetoric of late, regarding transgender rights, the anti-feminism movements and so on. This thesis will be self-explanatory for anyone who wants to apply Mutational Alchemy ideas to their own take on current events.
       People who are not on board with Mutational Alchemy will not even begin to get any of this stuff, which is why this article is private, even though it addresses some fairly significant matters concerning a topic that is on the minds of almost everyone today. 
      Anyone who has read Aleister Crowley will understand the fight for women’s freedom is a fight for men’s freedom, so it’s just not necessary that I cater to the lowest common denominator that might actually think advocating for the rights of one demographic somehow takes away from the rights of another. It’s time for math, science and geometry. So if you’re straight and think this is somehow overstepping in the social justice arena, I can understand that but Mutational Alchemy gives us the tools to analyze a very turbulent subject with complete mathematical precision, and as usual, it turns out the progressives are absolutely right about some things…but not all.
      People have been asking me about the real gender sexes and bigrammaton for a little while now, and while all of the data is already right there in the bigrams, both ternary and binary, that will allow astute scholars to figure (at least some of) it all out; it seems I can never write enough words to assist in the task of unveiling what all of these charts and mirrors actually mean.

our life in consciousness

“The Khabs is in the Khu, not the Khu in the Khabs.” This is one of the simplest statements at the start of the Nu Aeon, that reasserts the definite nature of Man as a divine being. It can also be stated “The Star is in the Spirit, not the Spirit in the Star.” Since the class A publication also asserts that each and every one of us, Man or Woman, is a Star, then this line becomes crucial to understanding the physics of Stars. Another phrase we decided to use around TAI to help people understand their nature is *consciousness stars* a term which illuminates consciousness itself as something which is driving this whole *Life* mess to begin with, and is intimately linked to the idea of Stars. 
       Finally we have the assertion that there is a division between that illuminating, knowledgeable and willful consciousness and our state of being within matter or, within our body. 
      Why would a seemingly limitless, intelligent and creative force, like the personification of consciousness, limit itself within forgetful and limited flesh? Why would beings we humans have visualized as Vishnu, Hermes and Bes, want to limit themselves by becoming humans or any other super intelligent, self-aware species?
      We are the Gods, there is no doubt about that. There is No God but Man, as we say often enough around here – only degrees of power, I might add. The gods incarnate all the time amidst us – we see them do this blatantly and obviously as Krsna or Ravana, historically, but the everyday aspects of God or Goddess amongst us are just as interesting and wonderful. The Hellenic people knew full well that Hermes was the supreme personification of Man’s highest ideal, the true friend of Man, and that he manifested as Man, from within – he didn’t galavant around the skies on his pegasus – these were metaphors for the sacred reality, the initiatory mysteries.  In our own often miserable and challenging experiences throughout life, many times it is not obvious that we are completely divine in nature, and eternal, even though many authoritative doctrines try to inform us of this, such as the Bhagavad Gita and the Tibetan Book of the Dead. 
      What is the purpose of incarnating in the flesh, if not to play video games, drink beer and eat pizza? Probably to gather something or learn something here we could not possibly attain in loftier abodes. Entertainment may seem like a cheap answer, but in an eternity, boredom is a very real hazard. Lack of new things and new experiences could very well lead to depression and inhibition. Even if consciousness doesn’t need to procreate – it does need to be able to sustain itself under the forces of entropy.
       Some believe that all experience is necessary and what is wanted by Nuit. Nuit is called the Star Goddess, or the Queen of Infinite Space. In my experience, she is very fiercely opposed to pain and injustice, and isn’t the impassive experience hoarder who cares nothing for the pains of mortals, as some metaphysicists claim. These mortals are herself, and her consort. If she is not the personification of half the relationship between Yin and Yang, then she is very close to this Taijitu’s comprehensive reality. 
      No, Nuit is a being of perfect justice, but she is also a mathematician. The pains of this Great Work are going to be worth it in the end, when we attain what it is we seek. As I have already stated, I believe this end goal is the enormous playground we are building for our selves. Everything from the concept of family and friends, games and good food, is all part of the Great Work, arising from necessity and the opinion of our greatest authorities that these things will keep us warm and comfortable through the long watch of eternity. 
      The calculation that we would do better incarnating and gathering experiences from a position of limitation is Nuit’s mind at work. Each of us is a Star or Universe, a point within the consciousness web building a world within ourselves of pure pleasure and sophistication. Yet there is another purpose to this work and it is not insignificant. Consciousness must be trained. To know that your head is a head and your hands and feet are what they are, (the basis of the Sephiroth as a control panel) you really have to experience that firsthand and get it drilled into your mind by constantly walking, getting to know the way mind works in a 3D environment and with other consciousnesses when encountered. Life isn’t perfect, but it’s the best solution she could come up with, compromising between the two great forces of Yin and Yang.
      Each and every one of us are mirror variations of the Tree and the Star, the map of the Body of Light that expresses what we are, in mechanical terms, just as a map of the human body doesn’t fully describe human diversity, so the variables in each human are both essential and unsurprisingly present. How can a point of consciousness, a star, know what victory is, if they have never tasted the glory of Netzach? How can anyone know the relationship of Binah and Chokmah to a child, if they have never been a father, a mother or a child? These are the qualities of a star that are inherent to each of us, and must be mastered inside of a classroom environment suited to Stars – baby universes. That’s Earth. Earth is a lot of other things, too, but it serves as a pretty harsh learning environment for Stars.
      Nuit, or Mother Nature, is a hard teacher, but she isn’t insane, as some in the Thelemic community would have us believe, no more than a mathematician’s’ abstractions are insanity in the minds of those who cannot comprehend equations. We have to always presume that the temporary suffering is an unavoidable side effect of a worthwhile goal. She and her consort, the personification of Father Nature, “Had” the winged serpent of light, both go out of their way to assure us of this reality, that they recognize suffering as something that we are going through, and that this is not the ultimate goal of the Great Work, only shadows that pass and are done.
      The admixture of Yin, Yang and Jen appears to be at the heart of our weird environment. Matter itself is the personification of the Yin principle – perfectly receptive and earnestly devoted to Yang, following like a mare. The Jen flux emerges from these two forces, according to traditional Chinese doctrine, at which point the so-called “10,000 things” emerge – that is, everything else we can classify, from chemicals to species. While some presume that this is a random occurrence, for those who allow for the possibility that the universe is intentional. Not in the way we might think – a VR programme or some all-powerful lonely meta-being, but as a place for our own minds to rest, forget and create something better. Most of all, it’s a place to extract those parts of our self – Yin and Yang, that interfere with our perfect state of being in harmony – what the Nipponese refer to as ‘wa’.
      The tales of consciousness gone amok in space play on our imaginations. Some of the stories are derived from earlier true stories or ancient myths from hundreds of years ago. The tales of stranded explorers eating each other, the myth of the wendigo, or the other various grotesque expressions of intelligent life (as it reaches higher levels of refinement equal to Man) are well known. This is a very spooky world already – we don’t need space to amplify the strange phenomenon going on with consciousness. Placing the phenomenon in the context of space makes it more believable to people who have fooled themselves into believing they’re exempt from the natural law of the universe. And yet these tales often reflect the reality we live in every day. No one is immune to the effects of consciousness. If we don’t know what to expect from the effects of consciousness, our work with Mutational Alchemy can be unnecessarily alarming. If we don’t know what to do when being confronted with shards of our own rogue mind, either internal or external, then we can find ourselves standing knee-deep in shit. This can happen spontaneously, at any time, not just during magic mushroom trips.  This is why we always practice *Right Thinking* and *Right Action* in accordance with traditional Eastern doctrine. Knowing what to expect and knowing what to do about it is very important. We can attain this mental asana by researching what others have gone through.
      We see hints of wild, untrained consciousness all the time in mythology and folklore: the Fae, or fair-folk, elves and dryads, to weirder, rarer things that feed off energy or terrify incarnate beings, such as the Mothman or Jersey Devil. Some of these other mythological beings appear to be just a step above Man itself, shamans who quit their physical body a long time ago, the sásq’ets or Sasquatch, and the Arcadian satyrs headed by Silenus. 
      Consciousness is capable of immense diversity of form, and it’s easy for any point of consciousness (a Star) to travel vast distances in a blink. This is what happens when we get pulled up into other realms, or consciously go there. There is a deep and complex perfection beneath all of the chaos, but that perfection, encapsulated within images like the Adam Kadmon Series by m1thr0s, is necessarily always on the hunt for a greater reality, a Completion that finally achieves *Maximum Inertia* and *Minimum Stress* once and for all. That calculation is beyond our ability to solve, and yet we are all part of the ongoing processing Nuit is performing in order to get all of us there.
       At core we are all essentially bound up with the Jen flux, which was created by Yin and Yang itself out of pure necessity. This is what the various authors of antiquity, the enlightenment and even modern times are talking about when they posit that we are all one at heart. Yet this unity cannot be undermined by the pointless argument that we must not partake in all of the powers of the Tree at an appropriate time: the works of Mars, of Geburah, and the Lunar, sexual, psychotropic illusions of Yesod. 
      The only law that must be obeyed is to never interfere with the Will of another. This is why child abuse is the clearest and most unbreakable law of the Liber al Vel Legis triad: any interference with the child’s sexual development is one of the basest of crimes next to religious coercion, since it spins a Star out of its natural orbit, often irreparably.  (“… acts invasive of another individual’s equal rights are implicitly self-aggressions. … Such acts as rape, and the assault or seduction of infants, may therefore be justly regarded as offences against the Law of Liberty, and repressed in the interests of that Law.” – Aleister Crowley, The Law is For All)
        The rest of the playing field is fair game, as long as it doesn’t interfere with the trajectory of another star, right? Well, not exactly. Any action could potentially, adversely affect another star. What’s more, stars kill and eat each other all the time. So we have to presume our morality arises from some real need, otherwise, it’s probably pretty dangerous for us to go around asserting right and wrong. It may be that intent matters a lot, but it doesn’t wholly forgive unconscious ignorance. The answer to our puzzle is solved if we approach things from the perspective that we’re all experiencing what we do to each other, that we’re one, deep down, beyond the place where the 10,000 things arise. Well, maybe *three* would be more accurate. This is Abrahadabra of course, you’ll never hear us trying to wrench the Crown of All away from triangles. 

the kings and queens of the earth series: introduction

The following is an excerpt from the article, which is for members only – click here to read it now:

Attaining stellar consciousness is the all important, governing focus here at TAI – not even ordinary theurgy, nor, ideas of theurgy, will do. Following the Book of the Law to the letter, barely even scratches the surface, and Crowley has been dead for over a century. The simon-says approach to Thelema or Completion is intolerable, and dangerous for star theory. It’s poisoned the word Thelema so that we cannot even use it with good faith. We need to look forward and press on, into the void. There are discoveries that must be uncovered, like lost diamonds laying in wait for anyone with the resolve to go out on the uncharted territory and find them. […]     This trend of non-interest in scholarly trailblazing continued throughout the late nineties and early millennium, into the present day. The work at the O.T.O. has mostly become a cataloguing endeavor, as if the purpose of the work was to forever buzz around Aleister Crowley’s shit like flies.
      No one at the O.T.O. has ever contacted us concerning the new doctrine of Abrahadabra, even though he was prepared to counter any questions about the model, those questions never came. I spoke to m1thr0s about it at length several times. “We’re talking about the reward of Ra Hoor Khut, right…and these people could care less about that. I was astounded at how little had been accomplished since A.C. bit the dust. When I showed them the research I had done to apply the Tree to the Star, they basically just said “that’s nice” and that was it. They were more interested in orgies and parties. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, I mean, they’re fun and everything, but when it becomes the only thing, then there’s no difference between the O.T.O. and say, what the Church of Satan is doing now, which is exactly where I saw things going – a dead end. I wasn’t receiving any support for my work, so I left.” he stated. […]He continued: “And I was ready for them, man. About the same time that you (Izi) were getting on board with this stuff, I was in attack mode, waiting for a complete war to break out over the assertions I was backing with Abrahadabra itself. It never happened, but the material I was revealing from my work was a smash hit with everyone else. [Continue Reading…]

Girl Fighting of the Advances of Eros, by William Bouguereau, 1880

abrahadabra curriculum 2018 – sign up opens in january!


Below at the end of this announcement is a very short excerpt from the 1-1 module (one of seven modules/packets for the first year, accompanying nine books) More info is available in our Discord channel, listed below, or, on abrahadabra.com.
       This module, (1-1 AI Curric Welcome and Intro, Module I,) is only the “guide”to the other, more in-depth modules, so, it’s a summary, basically, of what we will be going through for the first 3 months. There is an enormous amount of written documentation for each reading assignment within the other modules, so it is a very intensive course. Third year students will be required to travel to The Abrahadabra Institute to pass some of the coursework and undergo initiation.  
      Please note, you must be a member of The Abrahadabra Institute, in good standing, to apply for this coursework. Registration opens in January. 
      You will be required to acquire your own textbooks. Some of them we can get at a discount from Princeton, and some are pretty cheap, digitally, while two are rather pricy. If you want all paper copies in great condition, the cost will run about $200, but most of that is two rare printings by Regardie and Crowley we’re trying to source inexpensively as we can, as the copyright is up in December for one of the pricier of the two.

Because it is legal, I am willing to create a PDF of it and hand it out for free, which means the book list would be more like $125, without any discounts from Princeton University Press or other publishers which could be very generous depending on how many people want to order new copies through us. 

Members can review the textbook list on the forums here: http://abrahadabra.freeforums.net/thread/346/textbook-list-year-2018?page=1&scrollTo=1165

Goals

By the end of March, you should be able to build a hexagram using the method unique to The Abrahadabra Institute. You will also understand how to look up the hexagram once cast and analyze moving lines as well as rulers, and comprehend the overall meaning of the hexagram in synergy with your life circumstances.
      You will become familiarized with The Great Mystery, or Tai Hsuan Ching. You will memorize the basic traits of Yin, Yang and Jen by the end of the month. You will become familiarized with the Kama Sutra. You will become familiarized with the Qabbalistic Sephiroth, with the primary goal of memorizing the colors, names and placement of the individual Sephira on the Tree of Life by the end of the year.
      You will set up a permanent altar. You will begin to learn how to perform the TwinStar scrying meditation, using your magickal mirror. You will begin learning about and analyzing the work of Aleister Crowley, via his top student, Israel Regardie.
      It’s important that you cover the modules in the order given here, otherwise you’ll be missing important interlocking data that will allow you to smoothly progress.
      You’ll need to check in at least once a month on the forums under the Abrahadabra Academy section so we know you’re doing okay and not struggling with anything. You will be given posting assignments each month, but you can post as much as you like pertaining to the information in your modules. If you do have issues with anything you should contact us immediately. Below is our contact information:

[…]

Unpack everything and hang up the infochart poster (Labelled Adam Kadmon Tree with Four Elemental Worlds) where you practice or study. If this is not in the same place, hang it in the place where you study. Keep your books and supplies together in one place, preferably separate from other books on their own shelf, table, or in a container. This ritualistic pattern will set the tone for the years to come in which the benefits of ritual action is experienced firsthand, as underlined by Confucius, with externalized actions becoming internalized over time.
      Read the Introduction and March entry for Tetragrammaton 01 Basics (Bigrammaton) module I first. The Lo Shu, which the I Ching is based on, sets the stage for the work to follow. Follow any instructions presented. MAKE SURE you know the Lo Shu diagram and the elemental properties of Bigrams before beginning on the Trigrammaton module. If you need help, post on the forums, call, or email your instructor. Read the Introduction and March entry for Tetragrammaton 02 Advanced, first and follow all instructions at your own pace.
       Read rest of the modules in any order, but leave the Tantra module for last, as there are prerequisites in the other modules which may be useful. Follow any instructions presented. Try to familiarize yourself fairly well with the Sephiroth, (Tree of Life,) before you begin on the Tantra module. Some people will have already, or will be able to memorize the colors, names and locations of the Sephira within the first month, and this is desirable, however, if impossible due to personal time constraints it can be delayed until the end of the year. Don’t be discouraged if you can’t memorize them immediately, not everyone, even experienced occultists, have had time to dabble in Qabbalah, in addition to their other studies.

April

Goals

Become capable of performing a simple tarot reading for yourself and look up the card meanings online. You will be able to find the meaning of the different components of the card.
      Learn about the three aims of life espoused by Vatsyayana, PhD, and contemplate how you might integrate them into your own way of life. Begin learning about the vast history and foundational elements of the I Ching. Become acquainted with the concept of guru in the Eastern sense and the 729. Become introduced to the 81 Shou, and acquainted with the ternary and binary systems. Become familiar with the first chapter of the Book of the Law.

Instructions

Read through each of the packets individually and follow the instructions for the month. You may approach the packets in any order you wish, this month.

May

Goals

Continue your work with the I Ching, casting and reading a hexagram daily. Familiarize yourself with the history and implications of the I Ching that pertain directly to future Mutational Alchemy practice, such as the concept of Multiplicity from Nothing, as well as the idea that Hexagrams symbolize a forcefield. Examine the nature of a successful lover, their talents and abilities, and nature of Mankind’s sexuality itself. Become even more familiar with the concept of the 729 and its importance to Mutational Alchemy. Become introduced to the concept of interaction with other dimensional worlds, from the point of view of various cultures. Explore the initial underlying precepts of the concept of “raising the foundation”

Instructions

Start with Tetragrammaton 01 Basics, then Hermeticism paying special attention to the coordinates and attributes of Yesod and Da’ath on the Tree of Life, then Tantra. After this, study the Tetragrammaton Advanced module and finally, Hierophantic studies.

June

Goals

Continue casting […]

ningishzidda rising

The old Ningishzidda Rising thread has been reposted within Abrahadabra Forums. Non-members can read a preview below. [Members can skip this intro and read the article now]

It’s headed by a massive article commissioned by m1thr0s 729 and written by Izi Ningishzidda, intended as an update and facelift to the older and hopelessly outdated old thread header. m1thr0s had created that information way back in 2001, detailing the few known attributes of this significant deity. After years of study and digging through the stacks, this academic information now forms the core of our knowledge about Ningishzidda, who he is, who his family is, and why it might make any difference to occultists and especially Thelemites. We have always known he directly relates to Abrahadabra in some very unusual ways, but those coincidences and synergy kept rolling in long after m1thr0s discovered the name matched Abrahadabra’s numeration in the Qabbala of the Nine Chambers. Feel free to join in the conversation if you are a member of The Abrahadabra Institute!

One of the very first tasks m1thr0s set me upon is the research into the Lo Shu Square and its nine elements. While at the large downtown Memphis library, I set about some extracurricular activity on one of our favorite subjects, the god Ningishzidda. The results of that journey lead me to some pretty amazing stuff, and after some time, he tasked me on creating a large replacement article for the old “Ningishzidda Rising” thread he had started a long time ago. I can’t imagine a more volatile and charismatic godform, especially one that has personally touched so many of the lives of my comrades or rivals in magick – many times in disturbing and violent ways. I first came across his name when m1thr0s[…]
      The caduceus is centered at the lip of the beaker so that liquid seems to pour from the top of the caduceus. With their scorpion tails, twining ophidian bodies, eagle taloned hind feet, the dangerous and divinely crowned creature supports and upholds the double twined serpents who represent Ningishzidda. In the Enûma Eliš, the Babylonian creation epic, Tiamat is said to have “clothed the raging lion-dragons with fearsomeness”. The winged lion dragon is considered to be so powerful as to be unrivalled in battle, hence its name also became a noun used to describe ultimate rulers. Similar in shape to the Mushussu, the Usumgallu would probably safely be considered a variant of the Mushussu, but it does have wings. The scorpion’s stinger is borrowed from another denizen of the Mesopotamian plains to form a malicious tail, while its hind feet and wings are taken from a raptor.
The style of the dragons became corrupted over time so that the gates of Babalon have a composite between the Mushussu and Usumgallu as the serpentine guardians, while lions, more realistically interpreted, are also present.It is important to note that the Babylonian times came thousands of years after the Sumerians peak and they must be taken in light of this passage of time and the great differences between the Sumerian and Semitic tribes, and even between Assyria and Babylon. Babylon did not worship Ningishzidda or his son Ninazu, known to them as Tispak, in the same way the Sumerians, Assyrians and Elamites did.
