The hyper-prime Main Sequence with numerological associations via (the orginal) Roget’s Thesaurus:
(Yes, rigorous method demands extreme skepticism about numerological bonds, even when systematically explicated by a master.)
The utter howling chaos that has been qabbalization of the English language is truly a thing of wonder. It’s not as if sound foundations are especially difficult to establish. The entire phenomenon demands to be considered as a kind of comically lurid camouflage.
Trawling the Net, it’s peculiarly hard to find anything acute on the subject of John Nash’s ‘numerology’ — which was at least as firmly grounded as anything in the hermetic traditions (though still lost). I’ve abandoned the search for anything worth linking, in disgust.
In fact, Nash’s system, which treated words as modulus-26 numbers, and those of the hermeticists (which either slavishly model English Qabbala on Greek and Hebrew alphabetic numerals, or construct highly arbitrary numerizations through incontinently elaborate methods) involve complementary errors. Nash assumes a level of notational efficiency that is appropriate for arithmetical, but not qabbalistic functions, while the hermetics assume a level of esoteric obscurity that is beyond all historical precedent — derived from a profound abuse of tradition. Qabbalistic method is simple, mechanical, and intuitively plausible, however improbable — or even ‘schizophrenic’ — its epistemological object.
English Qabbala is Alphanomics. The rest is ruined Babel-towers of lunacy.
From The Secret Teachings of All Ages, by Manly P. Hall (1928):
The description of the Atlantean civilization given by Plato in the Critias may be summarized as follows. In the first ages the gods divided the earth among themselves, proportioning it according to their respective dignities. Each became the peculiar deity of his own allotment and established therein temples to himself, ordained a priestcraft, and instituted a system of sacrifice. To Poseidon was given the sea and the island continent of Atlantis. In the midst of the island was a mountain which was the dwelling place of three earth-born primitive human beings — Evenor; his wife, Leucipe; and their only daughter, Cleito. The maiden was very beautiful, and after the sudden death of her parents she was wooed by Poseidon, who begat by her five pairs of male children. Poseidon apportioned his continent among these ten, and Atlas, the eldest, he made overlord of the other nine. Poseidon further called the country Atlantis and the surrounding sea the Atlantic in honor of Atlas. Before the birth of his ten sons, Poseidon divided the continent and the coastwise sea into concentric zones of land and water, which were as perfect as though turned upon a lathe. Two zones of land and three of water surrounded the central island, which Poseidon caused to be irrigated with two springs of water–one warm and the other cold.
From Louis Ginzberg’s Haggadah compilation, Legends of the Jews (1909):
On the first day of creation God produced ten things: the heavens and the earth, Tohu and Bohu, light and darkness, wind and water, the duration of the day and the duration of the night.
In The Book of the Law (Liber AL vel Legis), Chapter II:55, it is said:
Thou shalt obtain the order & value of the English Alphabet
That is the Anglossic Qabbala, or Alphanomics. (Mechanized here, to be added to the side bar.)
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law = 777. (Quod erat demonstrandum.)
AL, the qabbalistic key, preserves its value in Hebrew, Greek, and English (AQ). Its number is 31. The 31st prime is 127 = THELEMA = NUMBER = CRYPT.
The gibberish of II:76 is a senseless distraction (“What meaneth this, o prophet? Thou knowest not; nor shalt thou know ever.”)
Thus ends the first essential lesson in reading.
