For anyone's interest. On further meditation, it is evident that while Paraoan plays a role of oversight over the earth, it is a different one than the Angel. Finding this out was my primary interest in the invocation.

I wasn't going to say it... But at the end in my notes I called him the Solar-Hadit of the earth. Take it as you will, but I'm not clinging to that.

At a brother's request, here's my invocation of PARAOAN.

Quote
Every letter in PARAOAN is a living fire: but all of one quality and of one creation. But unto N is delivered a viol of destruction.
-Ave, to John Dee

The letters of PARAOAN are from each Watchtower. Having never worked down the hierarchies past the Seniors, I chose to set up banners and evoke the Kings only. My hope was that it would be enough to activate the tablets in order to draw out the letters of his name.

R E C O R D

9:14PM - Star Ruby. Prayer of Enoch. Banners Arranged.
9:31PM - Temple openings per Liber Chanokh: Paroketh, 2=9, 3=8, 1=10, 4=7.
9:49PM - Keys 1-6 read, including 2nd. I draw each King out of their Watchtowers.
10:07 - Invocation:

The invocation begins with visualizing each letter of Paraoan burning where I've erected the Watchtowers in my ritual space, relative to where they appear on the Great Table. I circumbabulate vibrating each letter as I rotate past each Tower. Tension builds, I stop suddenly, and sit down before my altar. Sitting still, I continue to intone PARAOAN and visualize each letter in enochian script. Roughly ten minutes pass since beginning the invocation, and my perception shifts markedly. I am quite 'out of it'. This is what I see:

Everything is burning, and the flames roar loudly. I see Hell; Earth immolated. Everything now incinerates in white heat and I see Paraoan. A great dragon, burning white with flames of every colour lapping off of him. In turn I see blue, green, orange, yellow, and red. But he burns clear, white, and hot. His size covers my entire field of view, wings vastly stretching across the whole space. This all happens in a vision, rather than in my work space. And Paraoan speaks:

Quote
All parts of the earth are mine to watch over. And so I watch over you. All is accessible through us for all is ours. You must pass through destruction to come to our Father.
His wings close, darkness falls behind them and they wrap about me. I recall the fires of Shin which burned away my impurities, leaving the essential nature of my spirit. In this case, the sheer magnitude of Paraoan terrifies me, but I am filled with enough awe that the fear falls away.

Quote
I am the beginning and the end. The cycle ends by me and so too does it begin by me.
Through this I see each letter of his name. In the first six the world burns and transforms, but on the seventh, N, the world ends. Paraoan swallows the sun and all becomes dark. Yet, this too is temporary. His name begins again and the light fills the world.

Now he kicks me out of the vision and I'm back on earth. I see the Kings in their kerubic forms more clearly than I ever have before. I write:

Quote
This is the dragon that eats time. At each N, it is as if the Universe winks, as if God winks. All is destroyed, all returns. The letters of his name are backwards for spoken forward they end in destruction.
Through this, I perceive Paraoan as a giant sun blazing over me, made of a similar metaphysical constitution as the Watchtowers. But it is intense, heavy, and bright. Stars or comets fall from it towards the earth: the apocalypse has begun. The sun 'winks' periodically, darkening for a moment before it continues to pulse.

Quote
Judgement comes, but true to our Lord you shall pass it.
10:48PM - Close with Star Ruby and widdershins circumbabulations. The sun remains over the space for the evening.

A N A L Y S I S

All very apocalyptic. I didn't really get any information I wasn't already aware of. It hit all the expected notes: fire, dragon, white, rainbow. Although more solar than I expected. His points about being everywhere jives with the letters being on every Watchtower tablet, and likely has to do with the 22nd aire's ability to send you to other aethyrs. He seems to stand over time and space. Literally appearing as the sun over the Watchtowers. The solar relationship is the most interesting part to me, right now.

In the first part of the invocation, it seems I went 'up' to him. Then I got booted to earth and perceived him above. The record is missing most of what I saw in the first part because I couldn't write fast enough. Now, other than a few flashes of infernal flames and divine flames, I pretty much can't remember what I saw.

Thank you for this, Satyr. This is a lot already.
Yet I want ask, with some eagerness but no rush, if you're going to also talk of the thirty aethyrs? Helpful as bits you've said have been, I've been wanting to hear more from you on the subject for a long time.

Nice catch. How would you go about using this in ritual?

Just caught this from the Satyr reply. I would, first of all, prefer these images for talismans or meditations, and their corresponding Orphic hymns which I get results with and now I don't have to force onto Egyptian or pseudo-Egyptian deities. I have also toyed with following Mathers and making my own tarot design, incorporating the corrected Sepher Yetzirah material.

Speaking of which, KHR = Wheel of Fortune, in Liber 418 ends with a vision of the Son of God and solar imagery appropriate to Kaph.

This is on the right track, imo, and from what I've gleaned from working with the tesseract as a vehicle for K&C/reintegration.

No, it really isn't the right track at all.

ISI/98/Thoth is a black brother and a bullshitter. He claims to have crossed the abyss, when he obviously has not. He claims that Da'ath, the false sephirah, is a bridge across the abyss, which is absurd.

By definition, there is no path across the abyss. The only way across is through the renunciation of all you have and all that you are. There is no other way and anyone claiming otherwise is lying or deluded.

Saturn cannot be reasonably correlated with Da'ath. Knowledge (Da'ath) is not understanding (Binah). This is literally saying that the abyss is the goal of crossing, and not Binah.

Furthermore, there is no theoretical basis for thinking the Tesseract might be a vehicle for K&C.

People like ISI cannot imagine giving up all their clever ideas, let alone themselves. Rather than face the loss of all they are, and all they hold dear, they seek to substitute something less painful for actual attainment. They deceive themselves to preserve themselves, and in the case of ISI attempt to justify their stupidity by convincing others to follow them into the abyss.

Exactly as Enoch was instructed: recite the prayer three times per day for 50 days. It's excellent preparation.

General Discussion / Enoch, his prayer
« Last post by Satyr on February 26, 2020, 11:33:06 PM »
[Saturday, 7 July 1584. Cracow.]

[Dee.] Afterward, [the angel Ave] came again, and (after a pause) said as followeth.

Ave ...... My brother, I see thou dost not understand the mystery of this Book, or work thou hast in hand. But I told thee it was the knowledge that God delivered unto Enoch. I said also, that Enoch laboured 50 dayes. Notwithstanding, that thy labour be not frustrate, and void of fruit, Be it unto thee, as thou hast done.

[Dee.] O Lord, I did the best that I conceive of it.

Ave. ...... I will tell thee, what the labour of Enoch was for those 50 dayes.

[Dee.] O Lord I thank thee.

He made, (as thou hast done, thy book) Tables, of Serpasan and plain stone: as the Angel of the Lord appointed him; saying tell me (O Lord) the number of the dayes that I shall laobour in. It was answered him 50.

Then he groaned within himself, saying, Lord God the Fountain of true wisdom , thou that openeth the secrets of thy own self unto man, thou knoweth mine imperfections, and my inward darknesse: How can I (therefore) speak unto them that speak not after the voice of man; or worthily call on thy name, considering that my imagination is variable and fruitlesse, and unknown to my self? Shall the Sands seem to invite the Mountains: or can the small Rivers entertain the wonderful and unknown waves?

Can the vessel of fear, fragility, or that of a determined proportion, lift up himself, heave up his hands, or gather the Son into his bosom? Lord it cannot be: Lord my imperfection is great: Lord I am lesse than sand: Lord, thy good Angels and Creatures excell me far: our proportion is not alike; our sense agreeth not: Notwithstanding I am comforted; For that we have all one God, all one beginning from thee, that we respect thee a Creatour: Therefore will I call upon thy name, and in thee, I will become mighty. Thou shalt light me, and I will become a Seer; I will see thy Creatures, and will magnifie thee amongst them.

[¶] Those that come unto thee have one gate, and through the same gate, descend, such as thou sendest. Behold, I offer my house, my labour, my heart and soul, If it will please thy Angels to dwell with me, and I with them; to rejoyce with me, that I may rejoyce with them; to minister unto me, that I may magnifie thy name.

[¶] Then, lo the Tables (which I have provided, and according to thy will, prepared) I offer unto thee, and unto thy holy Angels, desiring them, in and through thy holy names: That as thou art their light, and comfortest them, so they, in thee will be my light and comfort. Lord they prescribe not laws unto thee, so it is not meet that I prescribe laws unto them: What it pleases thee to offer, they receive; So what it pleaseth them to offer unto me, will I also receive. Behold I say (O Lord) If I shall call upon them in thy name, Be it unto me in mercy, as unto the servant of the Highest. Let them also manifest unto me, How, by what words, and at what time, I shall call them.

[¶] O Lord, Is there any that measure the heavens, that is mortal? How, therefore, can the heavens enter into mans imagination? Thy Creatures are the Glory of thy countenance: Hearby thou glorifiest all things, which Glory excelleth and (O Lord) is far above my understanding. It is great wisdom, to speak and talke according to understanding with Kings: But to command Kings by a subjective commandment, is not wisdom, unlesse it come from thee.

[¶] Behold Lord, How shall I therefore ascend into the heavens? The air will not carry me, but resisteth my folly, I fall down, for I am of the earth. Therefore, O thou very Light and true Comfort, that canst, and mayst, and dost command the heavens; Behold I offer these Tables unto thee, Command them as it pleaseth thee: and O you Ministers, and true lights of understanding, Governing this earthly frame, and the elements in which we live, Do for me as for the servant of the Lord: and unto whom it hath pleased the Lord to talk of you

Behold, Lord, thou hast appointed me 50 times; Thrice 50 times will I lift my hands unto thee. Be it unto me as it pleaseth thee, and thy holy Ministers. I requre nothing but thee, and through thee, and for thy honour and glory: But I hope I shall be satisfied, and shall not die, (As thou hast promised) until thou gather the clouds together, and judge all things: when in a moment I shall be changed, and dwell with thee forever.

These words were thrice a dayes talk, betwixt Enoch and God: And in the end of 50 dayes, there appeared unto him, which are not now to be manifested nor spoken of: he enjoyed the fruit of God his promisse, and received the benefit of his faith. Here may the wise learn wisdom: for what doth man that is not corruptible?

I am starting this thread to post corrections for things in the 777 tables. The relationship of the double letters to the planets was discussed in the other thread.

Greek Gods
The 777 attributions for the Zodiac are based on the images on Tarot trumps. There actually was an ancient correspondence between the Olympians and the Zodiac:

"Pallas (Minerva) watches over the Woolbearer (Aries);
Cytherea (Venus) over Taurus;
Phoebus (Apollo) the shapely Gemini;
You, Cyllenius (Mercury), over Cancer;
and Jupiter, you yourself rule Leo with the Mother of the Gods;
Virgo who bears ears of grain belongs to Ceres;
and the forged scales to Vulcan;
quarrelsome Scorpio clings to Mars;
Diana cherishes the hunting man part horse (Sagittarius);
and Vesta the contracted stars of Capricorn;
opposite Jupiter is Aquarius, the star of Juno;
and Neptune acknowledges his own Pisces in the upper air."

This does not necessarily have anything to do with planetary rulership.
