from the Grady Project:

Eld

It is told in sagas and songs of old
That strange men dwelled on the world's high roof
And held strange commerce with gods aloof
When our Earth was young - and before the Cold.

And the stories tell of a fairey gold
That was bartered for garments of elvin woof,
For sequined jewels - but there is no proof -
So who is to know if the truth were told?

The dream worlds touch on those years of our eld
And hearty dreamers may voyage at will ---
Through lands the waking have never beheld

They storm with their thunder winged steeds uphill
Up valley and mountain and icy ledge
Spearheading the sky-winds - over the Edge.

From the Outbasket

This will be the last installment on symbolism of the Hebrew Alphabet for a bit. The following "code" attributes meaning to the Letters of the Hebrew Alphabet through correspondence to the story of Moses in the Old Testament. As was the case with the "Genesis Code" last month, the structure of the Hebrew alphabet is used for correspondence, not the traditional sequence of letters. The three Mother letters are used to represent primal things. The seven double letters are used to describe a period in the life of Moses which roughly corresponds to birth through Magister Templi. The twelve simple letters are taken to describe the work of the Master. The five finals describe the "One who came after". This strikes a parallel to Crowley's tradition, perhaps a bit more A A than O.T.O.

The Pentateuch Code.

(Developed from the Magical Diary of Frater , 6/17/75 e.v.)
Copyright © by Bill Heidrick, 1988

This way of interpreting the Letters of the Hebrew Alphabet is drawn from the Pentateuch or first five books of the Torah/Bible. It is contrasted with the "Genesis Code", which expresses abstract concepts more than it stems from the Book of Genesis. The same structure of Hebrew letters is used in both the Genesis and Pentateuch codes.
The story of the birth and life of Moses forms the basis of this code. As we pass through the events of the Pentateuch, individual Hebrew letters are matched to the significan events. From this, a generalization leads us to meanings of the Letters themselves in terms of a human story. The story is made complete by applying the "final" letters in a sort of "Joshua" code to the epilogue of the Pentateuch.

We begin with the story and the letters:

Aleph ---- Moses and Israel.
Mem ---- The Lands of Egypt and Canaan.
Shin ---- The gods of Egypt and of the Jews.
Bet ---- Moses upon the river.
Gimel ---- Moses reaches manhood.
Dalet ---- Moses is confused by the events of his life in Egypt & as an Exile.
Kaf ---- Moses is a noble of Egypt, a wanderer, a shepherd and a husband.
Peh ---- Moses sees the burning bush and receives the command to lead Israel.
Resh ---- Moses acquires Aaron's aid and sets out for his people in Egypt.
Taw ---- Moses returns to Egypt and speaks to his people.
Hay ---- Israel hears Moses.
Vau ---- Moses is recognized as the leader of Israel by Pharaoh.
Zain ---- The Plagues, Passover, the beginning of the Wandering.
Chet ---- The people of Israel go forth.
Tet ---- The destruction of Pharaoh's armies and the Camp built.
Yod ---- The Reception of the Ten on Mt. Sinai, the Ark and Tabernacle.
Lamed ---- The Laws given to the People.
Nun ---- The Death of the Sinful Generation.
Samekh ---- The testing of faith in the Hardships of the Wilderness.
Ayin ---- Conquest of the old tribes.
Tzaddi ---- Moses blesses the people. He is shown the Promised Land.
Qof ---- Moses dies without entering the Promised Land.
Kaf-final ---- Joshua receives the Command of Israel.
Mem-final ---- The Promised Land is taken.
Nun-final ---- Israel is established within the Land.
Peh-final ---- Joshua dies.
Tzaddi-final ---- The people of Israel endure. Joshua is buried and the bones of Joseph
           rest in the Land of Jacob.

Now, let's take those events and generalize them a bit --- not too much, just enough so that they may apply to any human story of similar wholeness and complexity:
For comparison, the Genesis code is given in short aphorisms.

Letters:      Genesis Code:Pentateuch Code:
    AlephPure BeingA thing exists in itself (Entity).
    MemPure SubstanceThe form and material aspect of a thing (Body).
    ShinPure WillThe spiritual essence of a thing (Spirit).
BetDirected FlowAn Entity pursues its purpose.
GimelMysterySeparate physical existence.
DaletMany ImagesExperience without order.
KafCyclesPursuit of order through trying of different roles.
PehRevelationDiscovery of the direction of Life.
ReshMeaning Attaches
to Things
Destiny is accepted and intelligently pursued.
TawAll Created
Things & Events
The harmony of life sings through the acts and
experiences of life.
Hay    OrderLife becomes organized along the lines of destiny.
Vau    UnionAction follows plan.
Zain    SeparationThat which opposes life is destroyed or avoided.
Chet    ContainmentThe pattern of life establishes itself for all to see.
Tet    Natural PowerThe pattern of life manifests through its own power.
Yod    CreationThe philosophy and rules of life become conscious.
Lamed    BalanceThe limits of life and activity become established
consciously.
Nun    TransformationThe pattern of life is passed on to another by
teaching or parenthood.
Samekh    TemperingThe pattern endures the test of time.
Ayin    Perception of
Limitation
Flaws to the success of life are discovered and
dealt with.
Tzaddi    MeditationThe pattern and its promise are praised.
Qof    EvolutionThe pattern is released to permit its growth into
a greater.
Letters:Genesis Code:Joshua Code:
Kaf-finalDevelopment of
the Created
Life pattern passes on to another form, another
destiny.
    Mem-finalMatterThe second destiny provides the final fruits of the
first.
Nun-final    Rational ThoughtsThe second destiny establishes itself securely and
naturally.
Peh-finalPhysical LifeThe last direct link to older ways of being and
doing vanishes.
Tzaddi-final    LivingLife establishes itself through further
generations.

Here's a test of both codes to see how they fit some traditional words of power in the Qabalah. In this application, a word spelled with Hebrew letters is expanded into a loose phrase or statement by matching the letters to their meanings in these "codes". This is very like a Tarot reading in that no exact word-for-word substitution of the codes for the letters is attempted. It is the meaning of each letter that is used. We must always begin with the defined meaning of the word. After that the Genesis Code offers a spiritual or abstract interpretation when the meanings of the letters are joined and expanded into a sentence. Finally, the Pentateuch code is used in the same way to generate a more anthrocentric interpretation. The Joshua code for the final letters is an option in some cases. This can also be used in divination on the name of a person or on a word obtained in meditation. In studying these examples, remember that Hebrew reads from right to left, in the direction opposite to English.

Mem-finalDaletAleph

Pent: A self-existing one endures chaotic

The Center for Enochian Studies, Volume I, number 9:


Marty 15 Thursday. Hora 1 1/4 a meridie1

Dee - After Edward Talbot his calling into the stone; appeared a
tall man, with a sceptre (Very great) of gold glittering. His body
all red: and out of his head, did shoot out beams of light, like
the sun beams2.
Dee - I being desirous, to know who he was, and his name; I
requested him earnestly thereto, but he answered as followeth:
---: Invocate nomen Domini agnoscetis eum.
      'Call in the name of the Lard, You will recognize him.'
Dee - Then I prayed the Psalm:3
Deus misereatur nostri, et benedicat nobis: illuminet vultum,
suum super nos, et misereatur nostri.
Vulg. Ps:LXVI:1.
'May God be gracious and bless us, may he show us a benign
countenance.'
Douay:LXVI:1.
'God be merciful unto us; and cause his face to shine upon us:
Selah4.
A.V:LXVII:1.
After that, he said:
---: I am mighty.
Dee - Because he delayed to declare his name, Edward Talbot the
skryer did require him: in the name of God the father, Jesus Christ
his son5, and of the holy ghost, to express his name. And he
answered in speech:
---: So I will by and by.
Dee - Then he seemed to take from his head little bright
sparks,like little candles' ends; and to stick them about the
chair6, and he went round about the chair, and then he spake, as
followeth:
i.
---: I am mighty and working wonders; I am SOLOMON7. I rule in
the heavens, and bear sway upon earth; in his name, who be blessed
forever. Thou doest doubt at me. I am the servant of God, in his
light; I serve him. I say, I serve him; with fear and reverence.
My name is SOLOMON8: Mighty in the Sun9, Worker of Worldly actions;
as well internal, as external. Known unto God; whose name I know,
and bless forever.
Dee - Then appeared a big flame of fire by him in the air.
Solomon: Thou knowest not, or thou wilt not know, that
Mammon10, with his servants, are present about thee. Whose presence
doth hinder the presence of the virtues11 Adonai overcoming.
Blessed be God, in the highest. Amen.
Dee - He took the forsaid flame of fire, and flung it unto the
heavenward.
ii.
Solomon: Mammon12 is a king whom God hateth: whose sect
continually tempt, provoke, and stir up wickedness against the
Lord, and against his annointed. But he dies, blessed be God
forever. Drive him away.
Dee: It is incomparably more easy for you to do. And as for my
part I feel neither in body, nor soul; any token of his presence or
working.
Thereupon he caused the whole chamber (Which we were in) to
appear very plainly in the stone13: and so there shewed a great
company of Wicked Spirits14 to be in the chamber; and among them,
One, most horrible and grisly, threatening, and approaching to our
heads, and scorning and gnashing at us.
Solomon: God determines his mysteries, by Art and Virtue.
Dee - Then he Willed Very eagerly to drive them away. And I
prayed fervently. And there seemed one to come into the stone,
which had very long arms; and he drove them away courageously. And
so they were driven away.
After that presently, came one into the stone, all white.
Solomon reached this white one a Cup. The white man held up the
cup; and said, as followeth:
iii.
---: Lo this is my name.
God shall bless you. Fear not. Your faithfullness provoketh me
to tell my name, and this it is: (putting forth the Cup again) for
I am called
Medicina Dei15.
God his Healing.
I will shew thee, and I will show you, the Angel of your Direction,
iv.Which is called OCH16
Dee - This name he spake, he showed it also on the Table17

(before him) written.
Raphael: He is mighty in the Sun18 beams, he shall profit
thee19 hereafter.
Dee - Then came in another, and sat down in the chair; and he
said as followeth:
---: The strength of God Liveth, and reigneth forever.
I am
Fortitudo Dei20.
God his Strength.
Dee: Why then, you are Gabriel; and I took you but hereto to be
Michael. Michael; how shall I then amend my book, in respect of
your name always before written Michael?
Fortitudo Dei: What thou hast Written, That hast thou
Written; and it is true.
Write down this name POLIPOS.
Doth thou understand it?
Dee: No, God knoweth.
Fortitudo Dei: When that day cometh, I will speak with thee,
v.if thou observe that which I have commanded thee.
As truly as I was with SOLOMON21, so truly will I be with
thee.
Dee - Then came in another; Whom we take to be Uriel, for he
went also, as he was want, and leaned at the Table.
Fortitudo Dei: Search for Wisdom and Learning, and the Lord
Will deliver it unto you.
Dee: I would to god. I knew your name truly, or What peculiar
Letter I might set for you, to Note your Words and Actions by.
Fortitudo Dei:Name I have none, but by my Office.
SOLOMON came not hither, but by me.
He is a mighty Prince, governing the heavens, under my power.
This is sufficient for thy Instruction.
I was with Solomon, in all his Works and Wonders22; and so was
this, Whome God had appointed Unto him.
The Divines know his name, and he is not hidden from the face
of the earth. His name is written in the book which Lieth in the
Window.
vi.
Dee: Do you mean Agrippa his book? And it is there expressed by
the name SOLOMON?23
Fortitudo Dei:I have said.
Dee: What order will you appoint unto us two, in respect of our
two beings together My friend here may have other intents and
purposes of his affairs, than will serve me for his aid having in
these Actions.
Fortitudo Dei: Join in prayers. For God hath blessed you.
Doubt not. Consider these Mysteries.
Dee: Then they in the stone used talk together, but not well to
be discerned by the ear of Edward Talbot.
At length Fortitudo Dei talked very much, and speedily to
Edward Talbot and disclosed unto him (Which he expressed not to me,
at the stone, but disclosed afterward) all the manner of the
practice, and circumstance about the Action intended, With the Gold
Lamen, the ring, the seals etc24. And after I had spoken somewhat;
in requesting him to shew me the manner, How I should artificially
prepare everything spoken of he said:
Fortitudo Dei:25 ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...

Dee's Marginalia:

i. SOLOMON: Of Solomon you may read in the call,
Diei Dominica in Elementis Magicis Petri de Abano,
Of the lord's Day in the Elements of Magick of Peter of Abano
their called Salamia26.

21. It is interesting to note any survey of medieval grimiores will demonstrate the
degree to which this form of magikal literature is dependent on the authority

Lesser Keys are probably the most familiar.
22. SOLOMON. The historical and mythological aspects of Solomon are far too
immense to cover in this limited space, but the interested will find a consider-
able begining, if they examine those sources cited in our previous articles with
attention to all Solomonic references.
23. Dee renders this name throughout as both SALAMAIN and SALOMON.

conclusions as to what is actually missing. As noted above the remaining
fragments and Ashmole's post script will bring the body of Doctor John Dee's
Liber Mysteriorum Primus to a conclusion in next months Thelema Lodge Calender.
