November 28, 1909. 9.30-10.15 A.M.
 TOR = Leo, Libra, Pisces = Teth, Lamed, Qoph = 139.
 The three Gunas — Sattvas, Rajas, Tamas. This is an introit to the Aethyr. As we proceed, we find more and more obstacles to entering.
 More introit; veils to the true vision.
 Tamas, Kerub of Earth. He and the Eagle of Air make up the four officers of the new temple. (I presume this to mean here that the three Gunas or qualities plus the Eagle of Air make four.)
 A warning to the Seer not to allow himself to ignore or despise the plain facts of life. Mysteries — nay, even the Mysteries themselves — are apt to seduce the aspirant. He becomes exalté (as the cold rational French, observing these errors, call him) instead of exalted.
 The tradition of the bull Apis. The Beetle is the Midnight Sun, the hidden hope of Earth.
 The King rules by virtue of the labour of his people. Even Taurus (Earth) is necessary as the support of Heaven. Nuit is upheld by Shu, who stands on Seb. Neglect to understand this causes many pure mystics to fail lamentably. They go off their base, in the significant slang of commonsense folk.
 The Bull is stationed in the North.
 The Bull is sacred to Osiris. This refers to the Crown of Thorns.
 Again a reference to the formula of Osiris. The spear (the sacred lance, phallus) pierces the heart of the Dying God.
 These two paragraphs declare the identity of the Bull with his Zodiacal opposite, Scorpio.
 The crown of Yod (as a Path on the Tree of Life) is Chesed. It leads thither from Tiphareth. The path of the Bull leads from Chokmah down to Chesed.
 See Knorr von Rosenroth on the Qlippoth (the Shells). He wrote Kaballa Denudata in Latin which was translated into English as The Kaballah Unveiled by McGregor Mathers, one of the Chiefs of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.
 The Rose of Earth surmounts the Cross of Fire in the symbol of Venus.
 Toil creates kinetic energy.
 All this paragraph explains the Qabalistic doctrine of stability = change. (Yesod, support of the Tree, is both Air and Luna.)
 These are intended to show symbolically that the Bull is the same as the Eagle.
 This transformation into Air shows the identity (in ultimate philosophy) of the two forces of change which constitute the Lesser Mysteries of the Sword and the Disk.
 Refers to the Scorpion in the symbol of the Bull of Mithras.
 These two paragraphs refer to the formula of the Dying God, its perversion and profanation at the hands of those who abused it.
 Air has a peripheral consciousness.
 The true unity does not exist in any particular number, but in Aleph as a whole.
 The Rose and Cross are not merely symbols of definite types of energy — female and male. They are extended in the correlative symbols of infinity — Nuit and Hadit.
 Air and Earth are harmonious vibrations — complementary.
 The vibrations of Tetragrammaton, Yeheshuah, the Hexagram, and the Swastika are duplicated, being complete in each of the two series, Air and Earth, the lower forms of masculine and feminine. (This refers to a variation of a Buddhist meditation in which peace and love are directed to all points of the universe. By the time Crowley obtained this vision, he had come to know Buddhism — and to discard it.)
FAL is a permutation of the letters of Aleph, thick darkness; PLA, the hidden wonder — a title of Kether. The whole symbolism of Aleph, III, must be studied thoroughly. It is especially the equations: One = Zero; and Three = One. Aleph is Iacchus, Lord of Ecstasy; Harpocrates, Lord of Silence; Zeus Arrhenotheleus; Bacchus Diphues, Baphomet, etc., Lord of the Two-in-One-Love: Parsifal, the Pure Fool, the wandering spirit of God, who impregnates the King's Daughter. (The best account of all of these symbols is to be found in that section of The Book of Thoth concerning The Fool.) UT is the title of the Holy Guardian Angel in the Upanishads. LI is the Hebrew for "to me."
See Liber AL vel Legis, II, v. 24. The hidden virtue which satisfies her.
FALUTLI (in Greek) is 1271 = 2542 divided by 2. 2542 is Thelema spelt in full in Greek.
