Chapter I

1. manifestation of Nuit –In chapter one, ‘Nuit’ can be seen as a term that refers to the (personified ego of Satan aka Lucifer).

The word Nuit itself was not chosen at random, and can also refer to ‘a dark day’.

The main reason why the Nuit is even mentioned, is because with Satan being destroyed, his ego needs to be represented as something a follower can hold on to, and so it is personified.

Essentially, A.C is stating:

‘the personified ego/memory of Satan (Nuit), is honoured and worshipped by an occultist, instead of Satan himself, as Satan has been judged and is no more (C1:15, 1:28, 1:21)’.

This is the introduction to such.

2. the company of heaven – Mortal mankind of the new earth above, ‘reincarnate’ here to this earth which is known as ‘the second death’, and ‘the lake of fire’ (Revelation 20:14).

This verse appears here along with C1:3 which states men and women are stars (that have fallen from above).

Soon the then occult philosopher Aleister Crowley introduces himself in C1:5.

3. Every man and every woman… a star. –Meaning, post judgement day (Armageddon 69CE), we come back from the new earth above (Isaiah 65:17, 65:20), and ‘reincarnate’ to this earth (John 1:21).

4. Every number is infinite; there is no difference.

5. Help me, o warrior lord of Thebes, in my unveiling before… men! – The writer Aleister Crowley seeks to make his introduction to the reader here.

He does this with an appeal to a title of a created spiritual being which is ultimately directed to Satan (Lucifer).

After reviewing the text of this book, one can see that the philosopher is writing in an expressive style and has no communication with Satan at all.

‘the personified ego/memory of Satan (Nuit), is honoured and worshipped by an occultist, instead of Satan himself, as Satan has been judged and is no more (C1:15, 1:28, 1:21)’.

Here are some initial references to demonstrate this;

• In (C1:14-15), Satan is now described as ‘infinite space’ just after ‘crossing over to [non-existence] (Ankh-af-na-khonsu)’.

This ‘crossing over’ is when Satan was judged and literally destroyed, and the winged globe (judged earth) became his. This means, that he became ‘one’ (deceased) with the earth in C2:26, a parallel.

This ‘infinite space’ is what is now ministered to by his disciples and apostles instead of his actual self, and is again spoken of in C1:22.

• In C2:26, Satan (Serpant) is described as one (deceased) with the earth, after he joyously sprang up from the abyss/Sheol/Hades to go to decieve (shoot forth venom) the nations.

How do we know that being one with the earth meant he was literally destroyed?

In C2:23 it states that the Snake (memory of Satan and his forbidden fruit) are now alone and without a god (Satan’s actual body) here.

• In C2:2-4, Satan goes to meet his bride Nu (memory, desire, and forbidden fruit), however he is judged and literally destroyed at Armageddon (not extended).

This is why his Nu dwells in the hearts of people (Khabs) who follow him.

We learn that the centre of the earth (sphere) knew of Satan as that is where he dwelt (Ezekiel 28:2).

We learn that their were nations further out from the centre of the earth (those of the circumference), who did not know of Satan (and I never – ref. C2:4) (Ezekiel 32:9) – however they would be known to his Bride the Nu (the memory of Satan, and his forbidden fruit) – especially as the beast (united lands with mankind on them) which includes the false prophet has them align spiritually and morally with the united lands, and ultimately the dragon (Satan)/what he stood for (rebellion etc.) (ref. Revelation 13:11-18).

• Satan is described as being devoured by fire (judgement), and turned to a pile of ashes. He is made no more forever – and thus has been made one with the earth (Ezekiel 28:18-19, C2:26).

If anything this verse (C1:5) is an appeal to the memory of Satan – as the writer yearns for him to be his help.

6. Be thou Hadit, my secret centre, my heart… – Here A.C. continues to show his desire and affection towards Satan in that he desires Satan to be his secret centre, his heart and his tongue.

We read later that Satan does not live inside a person (C2:19), however his Snake/Nu (his memory and forbidden fruit) are kept close within a follower of him (ref. C3:10).

We are also about read that the occult philosopher is about to reveal something (see next verse).

7. Behold! it is revealed by Aiwass the minister of Hoor-paar-kraat.

Something is being revealed here, but what?

After having announced himself in C1:5, A.C likley asumes the alias ‘Aiwass’ (communicates with an angellic-style, airy communication), as the minister/representative (voice) for Hoor-paar-kraat (Satan).

What is being revealed? Some spiritual truths.

So far we are learning that;

• It is night – post Armageddon, Judgement Day (C1:1)
• men and women are described as stars, and ‘reincarnate’ from above (C1:2-3).
• Aleister Crowley desired Satan be his help, and secret centre (C1:5-6), however he is about to reveal something soon in his book (C1:7).

There is something else that the writer desperately wants to reveal at the beginning of this Book, and this is found in C1:14-15.

8. The Khabs is in the Khu, not the Khu in the Khabs.

The Nuit (personified memory of Satan) is in the men and women who ‘reincarnated’ into a body of flesh on this earth.

The body of flesh is not in the Nuit.

9. Worship then the Khabs, and behold my light shed over you!

A.C tells the reader to worship the Stars here.

Why? We see in C1:14-15, C1:22 that Satan nolonger truly exists, and those who minister to him, minister to ‘infinite space’; nothingness.

This is why the word Nuit was used here, to personify Satan’s ego and speak of him in this way.

Satan’s light refers to his forbidden fruit aka winged secret flame C1:16.

One of A.C’s goals was to develop a religious system and promote the occult (see first listed publication in Thelema set ‘Liber LXI vel Causæ’).

10. Let my servants be few & secret…

11. These are fools that men adore….

12. Come forth… under the stars, & take your fill of love!

A.C. promoted rituals which involved ‘open’ sexual encounters.

13. I am above you and in you. My ecstasy is in yours…

‘I (my ego) is figurativley above you’.

Soon we will learn that the figurative Nuit (ego, desire, intention, and memory of Satan) was that which figurativley remains above the blue sky (C1:14, C2:26) as Satan desired to be like G-d (Isaiah 14:14).

The body of Satan however was literally destroyed (see comments for C1:14, 2:26).

When it says my ecstasy in yours, it is speaking of the affinity for the desires of and memory of Satan that his followers hold dear, and likley also his forbidden fruit.

14. Above… azure – Above the blue sky, 

Splendeour of Nuit – is the naked splendour of Nuit (ego, desire, intention, memory of Satan); Satan’s desire was to be like G-d – above all things (Isaiah 14:14)

bends in ecstasy to kiss – the Nuit (ego of Satan) bends down (looks upon/interacts) in excitement (ecstasy) to action (kiss)

secret ardours of Hadit. – the passions (ardours) of Satan’s body (Hadit); he wanted to and did decieve the nations who destroyed the second temple in Jerusalem and made war on the people of G-d (ref. C2:25), 69CE approx.

The winged globe, the starry blue,
Are mine, O Ankh-af-na-khonsu! –

[At this time, the earth was judged in spiritual fire, and had then passed away (Revelation 21:1).

This is why it uses the symbolic ‘the winged globe, starry blue’ here.

The earth is now also known as the lake of fire and sulfur (Revelation 20:10).

A.C then writes these ‘Are mine’ – meaning, Satan’s body (Hadit) is ‘one’ (deceased) with the earth as we see in another place (C2:26, a parallel verse).

This is why it says Ankh-af-na-khonsu.

What this means is ‘O he lives in Khonsu’ (‘to cross over’); i.e Satan resides in non-existence after having crossed over (ref. https://history.fandom.com/wiki/Ankh-af-na-khonsu#:~:text=Ankh%2Daf%2Dna%2Dkhonsu%20(lit.,of%20the%20Egyptian%20god%20Mentu. ).

This all speaks of Satan’s judgement and literal destruction (Ezekiel 28:18-19) – hence, he is spoken of in the next verse here as ‘infinite space’ and this refers to his personified ego (C1:22) that is ministered to by his priest and apostles (C1:15), from then on].

15. Now…the chosen priest & apostle of infinite space – [Satan has just been confirmed judged and was laid to rest in the winged globe, this earth – when it says ‘are mine’ (C1:14) and that he is one with the earth C2:26.

It now says his Nuit (personified ego) is considered ‘infinite space’ (C1:22) – as he doesn’t exist. The Nuit is what is being ministered to by mankind]

is the prince-priest the Beast – [the ‘beast’ means united lands populated by mankind (Revelation 19:19, 13:1, 17:15)];

and in his woman called the Scarlet Woman is all power given – [the woman is the ‘city’ described in Revelation 17:18. All power was given to the city that led the united lands (Revelation 17:15). The second beast (united land with city) essentially doubled as the false prophet (prince-priest) as they looked like a lamb though spoke like a dragon and convinced mankind to recieve the ‘mark’ (undeniable affiliation with the world, and ultimately to Satan spiritually and morally (Revelation 13:11, 13:12-18)].

They shall gather my children… – [As false prophet (prince priest) decieving/convincing mankind to recieve the mark of the name of the beast, indulging in any forbidden fruit Satan left behind]:

…bring the glory of the stars into the hearts of men. – [The shall assist in having mankind worship the Nuit/Nu (ego, memory of Satan and his forbidden fruit) – whom was the glory of the [fallen] men and women (stars).]

16. For he –  [the prince-priest the Beast (C1:15); united lands with many peoples]
is ever a sun [offspring],
and she – [city]
a moon – [figurehead/leader of sorts].
But to him – [the prince-priest, beast, united lands who inturn follow Satan’s memory]
is the winged secret flame – [forbidden fruit, ‘winged’ here like in C1:14 indicates widowed/orphaned/now seperated from Satan’s destroyed body],
and to her – [the original leading city of the second beast for the united lands (beast) (Revelation 17:18)]
the stooping starlight – [The city is on the beast (united lands) and was deemed as very wicked here in the earth. It recieved the status of ‘lake of fire and sulphur’ forever and ever (Revelation 20:10). That is what it means when it says the stooping starlight looks down upon the city; the city and united lands are forever in this earth and judged as very wicked.

The city was involved in leading the united lands (beast) and convincing mankind to follow the dragon.

The lands (beast) are in the lake of fire forever and ever (Revelation 20:10), people populate the lands.

Unlike Satan in Revelation 20:10, they (people on the united lands) are listed as having been figurativley thrown in to the symbolic lake of fire and sulfur ‘alive’ (Revelation 19:18-20), and this is why mankind exist in the lake of fire (this earth) ‘alive’, this very day.].

17. …ye are not so chosen. – [Meaning, those of mankind in the lake of fire (this earth), have not yet been blessed with immortality as yet.

They have not yet believed in G-d and in Messiah (Christ), and thus have ‘reincarnated’ back to this earth which is also known as the ”second death’ (Revelation 20:14-15)].

18. Burn upon their brows, o splendrous serpent! –

[Note the exclamation mark at the end of this verse and the next verse.

It denotes the occult philosopher’s desire for mankind to worship Satan – however as C1:14-15 and C2:26 show us that the body of Satan (Hadit/ secret Serpent) was destroyed.

C1:19 and C1:21 speak of the body of Satan which is trapped in the blue (azzure-lidded) as per C1:14, judged and literally destroyed. It is from then in three Nuit (personified ego of Satan) that men minister to, and the Nuit is defined as ‘infinite space’ (C1:22).

Further, a name on the forehead of a person typically represents whom they worship (ref. Revelation 22:4).]

19. O azure-lidded woman, bend upon them!

[Note the exclamation mark at the end of this verse with an address to Satan.

It denotes the occult philosopher’s desire for mankind to worship Satan, and for Satan to meet/interact with them (‘bend upon them’ – ref. C1:14).

However the ‘azure-lidded woman’ is confirmed as being Satan’s body (C1:14 states his figurative Nuit (ego) was above the blue sky and had to bow down to his body (Hadit) which was in the earth, invisible (C1:21) – the Nuit being the one that mankind know now (C1:22 ‘infinite’).

The body of Satan was literally destroyed from these passages when it became one with the earth (C2:26) and thus the Nuit is ‘infinite space’ (C1:15).]

20. The key of the rituals – [events that have occured – i.e. Judgement Day (Armageddon) and Satan’s judgement and literal destruction)
is in the secret word – [markers found in these encrypted writings which have been derrived and inspired from Holy Scripture]
which I – [the ‘winged secret flame’ (C1:16) a.k.a the forbidden fruit left by Satan to the prince-priest beast (united lands) ref. C1:16]
have given unto him – [the beast; united lands as per C1:15-16, by way of enlightenment].

21. With the God & … Adorer  I am nothing: they do not see me.

[With the G-d of Abraham and the follower of him, I, the body of Satan (see C1:18-19, C1:22) do not exist (anymore)].

They are as upon the earth; – [they are accounted for and exist, are tangible].

I am Heaven… there is no other [g]od than me, and my lord Hadit. – [I, the figurative Nuit (ego, memory of Satan) am Heaven.

The personified ego of Satan is certainly mentioned as above the blue sky (C1:14), and thus ‘infinite space’ (C1:15), and infinitie stars thereof (C1:22).

Here, the figurative Nuit (ego of Satan) is claiming the place of ‘god’ over the actual deceased body of Satan (see comment C1:18-19).

We see the ego of Satan as a Snake on top of his dead carcass which is portrayed as Osiris floating on the Nile (Sheol/Hades) – better yet on the lake of fire and sulfur (this judged earth), given the mention of Typhon (linked with volcanic activity) – ref. Liber Cordis Cincti Serpente, C1:1)

This is a helpful reference in understanding Satan has been judged and literally destroyed.

Satan is recorded as being known as an ‘…arrogant man…’ (Habbukak 2:5 ESV), and not a ‘god’ (Ezekiel 28:2) – but rather as a ‘cherub’ (Ezekiel 28:14).

Thus the peraonified ego of Satan (Nuit) could be considered to be speaking in an arrogant tone.)

22. …therefore, I am known to ye by my name Nuit, and to him by a secret name [‘None’ (C1:27)] which I will give him when at last he knoweth me. Since I am Infinite Space, and the Infinite Stars thereof, do ye also thus.

[The explanations for C1:18-19, C1:21 are confirmed here, as it shows us that Nuit (Satan’s personified ego) is what is left of Satan, and therefore he cannot appreciate any worship afforded him from mankind (C1:18), his body (literal being) can not interact with people (C1:19), or be seen (C1:21).

When it says ‘when at last he know me’ – if this is speaking of the body of Satan (Hadith), it is expressive and just the wishful thinking of the Nuit (personified ego) and its yearning expressed.

This is said as, the body had crossed over to non-existence in C1:14 (Ankh-af-na-khonsu! def. ‘he lives in Khonsu’ (‘to cross over’) in the ‘winged globe’, and was made ‘one’ with the earth (C2:26)).]

Bind nothing! Let there be no difference… – Here there is a twofold message;

1) A.C the writer is encouraging people to esteem the Nuit (personified ego of Satan) as if it where Satan himself (though his being is now deceased).

2) This is also a reference to the manner in which the risen Messiah (Christ) lives, and this reference serves as a clue to understanding the the next three verses.

How does the end of this verse speak of Christ? Please see next comment for C1:23.]

23. … whoso availeth in this, let him be the chief of all!

Again the twofold message here is;

1) whoever esteems the Nuit (personified ego of Satan) just as he would esteem Satan if he were alive; let him be the chief of all.

2) As the Messiah (Christ) lived in a way that was selfless; according to Holy Scripture, he actually was describes as ‘chief’.

C1:22 toward the end says ‘bind/cling [to] nothing…’ and then  C1:23 says this ‘chief of all’.

The selflessness and servitude of Christ (Messiah) are spoken of where the corresponding verses might be ‘…Don’t store up treasure here on the earth…’ (Matthew 6:19 NIV), and ‘…All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.’ (Matthew 28:18 NIV).]

24. I am Nuit, … my word is six and fifty.

[The word Nuit has a double meaning and potential application here.

The reason why the Nuit is even mentioned, is because with Satan being destroyed, his ego/memory needs to be represented as something a follower can hold on to, and so it is personified.

It can then represent the personified ego of Satan, post Satan’s literal destruction.

It can also be used to describe a dark day, night and thus perhaps Judgement Day, Armageddon (Amos 5:18).

This verse says ‘my word is six and fifty’, and this is a marker of the beginning for the need and development of the term Nuit is perhaps the lead up to Satan’s destruction – and in the next verse we will see A.C perhaps felt his cruxifiction and resurrection (circa 35CE) would be best for such a marker.

In the next verse we will see A.C perhaps felt the cruxifiction and resurrection (circa 35CE) would be best for such a marker – it was certainly the beginning of ‘birth pains’ (Matthew 24:8) leading up to Judgement Day (Armageddon 69CE), which involved the destruction of Satan.

We also see that the sky grew dark (nuit) at that time in Matthew 27:45.

Workings can be found in the next verse explanation.]

25. Divide, add, multiply, and understand.

[As per C1:24, the numbers given to work with are 6 50.

6, 50.

The instructions in C1:24 were to;
• Divide (Reference numbers found)
• Add  (Result – meaningful numbers found)
• Multiply (Reference numbers found)
• Understand (Result – meaningful numbers found)

Divide: (50÷2 = 25) ÷ (6÷2= 3)
Explanation: These divide numbers are used as reference numbers for the ‘Add’ sum, and allow for the ‘Multiply’ sum’s answer to be used for the ‘Understand’ sum.

Add: 25 + 3 = 28.
Explanation: Jesus perhaps began his ministry at circa 28 years of age.

Multiply: 25 x 3 -> 75.
Explanation this equation uses the reference from the ‘divide’ sum, and is required to understand the next sum (‘Understand’) which shows the approximate date of the cruxifiction and ressurection of the Messiah (Christ).

Understand: 7×5 = 35
Explanation: 35CE is the approximate year for the crucifixion and resurrection of the Messiah (Christ).

This interpretation is close enough.

Note: Jesus was still in the world after his crucifixion and ressurection, helping and guiding (as a visible spiritual being – ref. Acts 9:3, 9:6) the disciples and apostles until the end of the age (Matthew 28:20) – which was circa 69CE at the destruction of the second temple in Jerusalem (Matthew 24:1-2, 24:30-31, 24:34).]

26.[In an effort to reveal when Satan was literally destroyed, A.C has a conversation with the personified ego (Nuit) of Satan here.]

Then saith the prophet [learned man]… slave of the beauteous one[Nuit – the personified ego of Satan (C1:24)]:

Who am I, and what shall be the sign? – [Who am I as a follower of Satan now that he has been loterally destroyed. And what was the sign of his destruction and thus ‘crossing over’ to non-existence (ref. C1:14; ‘Ankh-af-na-khonsu!’), O ‘infinite space’ that I now minister to (C1:15).]

she answered him, bendingdown – [The Nuit answers the learned man, and also bends down as in C1:14],

a lambent flame …, all-touching, all penetrant, … lovely hands upon the black earth – [Nuit is a similar term to Nu which is described as a flame – however, Nu is moreover representing the forbidden fruit (ref. C2:1-6). Dark earth representing – the approaching of judgement day 69CE (Amos 5:18)],

&… her soft feet not hurting the little flowers – [the people of the earth are not directly hurt by Nuit (the personified ego of Satan) – unlike when Satan was alive (ref. John 8:44)]:

… And the sign shall be my ecstasy – [Here, the sign that Satan was about to be destroyed is more than likley what is expressed in C2:26; the Joy that Satan had in his heart, as he went up out of the Abyss (sheol /Hades) to finish decieving the nations into destroying the second temple in Jerusalem (‘spit forth venom’), and make war on the people of G-d (C2:25).]

, the consciousness of the continuity of existence – [the understanding that the end of the world was a spiritual judgement at Armageddon 69CE approx.. Existence here on this earth continues, though in the symbolic ‘lake of fire’ – a judged place.]

, the omnipresence of my body – [how Satan (Hadit) ‘crossed over’ to non-existence (C1:14; ‘Ankh-af-na-khonsu.’), when he was made ‘one’ with the earth (C2:26) – only to have those who minister, minister to ‘infinite space’ (C1:15) from then on.

Satan’s body could not possibly have ‘omnipresence’, as previously when he existed, he was a created spirit being – locality based (‘…to and fro…’ – ref. Job 1:7, 2:2), described as a ‘…cherub…’ (Ezekiel 28:14).]

27. Then the priest… said unto the Queen of Space – [From here C1:15 states ‘infinite space’ is now being represented by priest and apostle],

kissing her …, the dew of her light bathing … in a sweet-smelling perfume of sweat – [figuratively kissing the nothingness, ‘infinite space’ (C1:15);  the ‘Queen of Space’ (C1:27)]:

O Nuit, continuous one of Heaven… ; that men speak not of Thee as One but as None… not of thee at all, since thou art continuous! –

[Here we read that a person should not speak of the Nuit as Satan himself – as the Nuit is simply a term used to describe his personified memory instead. 

This is why with regard to the Nuit, A.C says it is best that it ‘not be spoken of at all’ (C1:27). 

With C1:27, we see that Satan (‘None’) was judged by the fire of Judgement Day (C2:14, Revelation 20:8-10), and was literlly destroyed (‘became faint and faery’) – that is, Satan became faint (was literally ‘consumed’ (Revelation 21:10) and destroyed (Ezekiel 28:18-19)) and mystical (faery) – that is he from then on is addressed as the symbollic ‘Nuit’ which is used to describe Satan’s memory personified. 

This is the ‘division’ (Satan’s literal destruction). ‘and two’ – means the Nuit is seperate from Satan, and will be used to describe his memory/ego personified – hence the Nuit is ‘continuous’ and in reality nothing tangible, thus ‘none’ also (C1:27).

From this point on, his body became ‘one’ with the earth (C2:26) – meaning, he ‘crossed over’ to non-existence (Ankh-af-na-khonsu; def. ‘he lives in to cross over’) – in this judged earth (‘the winged globe, the starry blue’ – C1:14.

The earth is described as winged as it is described as ‘raptured’ (C2:26) – referring to when the fire of Judgement (light – C2:14), consumed it and ‘…heaven and the first earth had passed away…’ (Revelation 21:1 ESV).

From then on Satan’s lifeless body is described as the ‘azure-lidded woman’ (C1:19; meaning trapped in the empty earth), and also as ‘nothing’ (C1:21).]

28. None [Satan] , breathed the light [this is the fire (light) of Armageddon (C2:14)], faint & faery [was destroyed and became mystical], of the stars [amongst the created spirit beings], and two [was literally destroyed, and the ‘mystical’ term known as the Nuit (personified memory of Satan) was birthed – hence ‘and two’ (Satan ceases, though his memory is personified).

The Nuit/Nu is not one with the physical being of Satan, which is represented by ‘the Empress and Hierophant’ (those two are ‘not of me’ – C2:16).

See comment C1:27.]

29. For I am divided for love’s sake – Satan is literally destroyed (‘divided’ – ref. C1:27-28), and is now referred to as Nuit (Satan’s personified memory).

for the chance of union. –So mankind could be united with G-d.
We know this is with regard to mankind as Satan is to exist no more (C1:14-15, 1:19, 1:21-22, see comment 1:27).

We learn in C2:27-33 that the Underworld (Sheol/Hades) was destroyed for a ‘dog’ (C2:33) – that is, in exchange for Satan’s existence at Judgement day as described in C2:26 (see comment).]

30. This is the creation of the world, that the pain of division is as nothing, and the joy of dissolution all.

A.C writes, according to what is written in the Holy Scriptures, this is why the earth was created;

the pain of division (of death above in the new heaven and new earth only to come to this old earth – the lake of fire) for mankind is as nothing (lite – 2 Corinthians 4:17), forgotten.

The joy of dieing here on this earth, and having a person’s partnership/alignment with Satan cancelled, is all.

They also state that with faith (Isaiah 28:16, John 3:14-16), this means everlasting life above.

31. For these fools of men and their woes care not thou at all! They feel little; what is, is balanced by weak joys; but ye are my chosen ones.

[A.C. encourages those who follow the Nuit and hold it dear, to not care for the way of those seeking union with G-d; he feels they typically know (feel) little.

Those who seek out the Nu (Satan’s personified ego/memory) are deemed of greater status by A.C., as he then preferred to ‘sin’ alot.]

32. Obey my prophet! follow out the ordeals of my knowledge! seek me only!  – [A.C. writes: Obey me, seek to learn about Satan and his ordeals/account. Seek him only]

Then the joys of my love will redeem ye from all pain. This is so: I swear it… – [then the fact that you are separated from G-d will be as nothing, because the ‘joys of [Satan’s] love’ – that is, the memory of his Nuit (personified ego) and his forbidden fruit, will mitigate any sorrow a person might have.

He claims such an approach to be true.]

33. Then the priest fell into a deep trance or swoon, & said unto the Queen of Heaven; Write unto us the ordeals; write unto us the rituals; write unto us the law!

[After all we have read, here the occult philosopher chooses to communicate with the reader through the creative scenario of a priest in a trance who asks Satan tell of his ways;

We know that this is creative writing here as in C1:27, we have read Satan as a being is no more (C1:14-15, C2:26), though his Nuit (personified ego) is referred to as the ‘Queen of Space’ – that is he is ‘as None’ (no more); and let them speak not of thee at all, since thou art continuous [that is non-existent, now deemed ‘infinite space’ (C1:15) as a completely destroyed being].

34. …the ordeals I write not: the rituals shall be half known and half concealed: the Law is for all.

[The writer tries to communicate that not all is revealed about ancient occult ritual.

The writer encourages a reader to embrace ‘the Law’ that he has written and it reads: ‘Do what thou wilt’ (C1:40).]

35. This that thou writest is the threefold book of Law.

[Perhaps the book of the Law had three purposes;

1) That Satan (Lucifer) was judged and literally destroyed, leaving behind only his memory and forbidden fruit – now that we are past judgement day (Armageddon).

2) Speak on occult ritual

3) Give his law (‘Do what thou wilt’).]

36. My scribe Ankh-af-na-khonsu – [here we are still in the trance that began in C1:33. This is a literal egyptian human scribe being spoken of.],

…the priest of the princes, shall not in one letter change this book; … he shall comment thereupon by the wisdom of Ra-Hoor-Khuit – [Still in the trance of C1:33, Satan is described as saying by my wisdom/enlightenment he the scribe shall comment upon the words of this Book of Law].

37. Also the mantras and spells;…

the obeah – [practice of using supernatural spirits or agents to harm others]
the wanga – [voodoo/sorcery]

…these he shall learn and teach. – [The egyptian scribe and priest would teach these occult things to the people.]

38. …he may make severe the ordeals. – [In the vision, the Egyptian scribe and priest is allowed to make the learning process to acquire skills, ‘harsh’ (re: ordeals of knowledge ref. C1:33)].

39. The word of the Law is THELEMA.

40. … Thelemites… there are therein Three Grades, the Hermit, and the Lover, and the man of Earth. Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

[Themeites (occult philosophers) are typically of higher social and fiscal status. King and lovers (beds of purple – C2:24) on the earth, who do what they like.]

41. The word of Sin is Restriction… refuse not thy wife, if she will! O lover, if thou wilt, depart! … no bond … can unite the divided but love: all else is a curse. Accursed! Accursed be it to the aeons! Hell.

[The philosopher felt that the concept of Sin is limiting, and so here is the example of an adluterous, fornicating man with his wife, who also asks his [other] lover to leave.

A.C felt that sexually sinning (e.g. fornication and adultery), ‘united the divided’ – that is, the fallen peoples here that are currently separated from G-d (ref. C1:29).

Anything against this is not encouraged (Accursed).]

42. Let it be that state of manyhood bound and loathing. … thou hast no right but to do thy will.

[The state of many here of ‘the divided’ who are not sexually open and outgoing, are considered as bound, and that state is not desirable to A.C. (accursed ref. C1:41). He says to do what thou wilt.]

43. Do that… no other shall say nay.

44. For pure will – [actioned sexual desire], unassuaged – [not satissfied]
of purpose – [of just standard marital relations and procreation etc.],
delivered from the lust – [hunger during courting process and of longing each day etc.]
of result – [actioned sexual desire],
is every way perfect.

[A.C. felt that open sexual culture which is openly actioned and satissfied in each person, is what he prefers.]

45. The Perfect and the Perfect are one Perfect and not two; nay, are none!

[The married man (perfect) and married women (perfect) are one (perfect).

They are not two (two unmarried persons committing adultery) – no those eventually perish (are none) – ref. C1:46.]

46. Nothing is a secret key of this law… I call it eight, eighty, four hundred & eighteen.

Nothing is a secret key of this law… – the key to understanding the law of Thelema that A.C speaks of is the fact that Satan has been judged and is literally destroyed.

There is a link between all of these numbers and 2:15.

8 – symbolises eternity. If the letter eight was rotated 90 degrees, it would look like the symbol of Eternity/’continuousness’ (‘infinite space’ C1:15) – and these words are ultimatley to describe how Satan is no longer in existence (‘none’ C1:27).

His personified ego/memory (Nuit) is all that remains for a follower of Satan to cling to, and this is why is it describes as a continuous personified idea to keep in one’s heart.

80 – symbolises eternity/’continuous’ness (infinite space) like 8, however the 0 speaks of what C1:45 speaks of ‘none’ – and according to C3:15 this shows that the Nuit (Nu) is represented as sitting inside an 8 (eternity) and is represented as a 1 to signify this in C3:15.

418; D[E]A[T]H – means that Satan is literally non-existent, as his personified memory remains in nothingness, ‘none’, ‘infinite space’ (C1:15), in a ‘continuous’ (C1:27) state forever.

The [Book of the] law of Thelema leads to [the knowledge of Satan’s] death.]

47. But they have the half: unite by thine art so that all disappear.

[They (adherents to the occult) have half of any ancient rituals learned and made known, unite by these. Participants are tarnished (Scripturally) by such practices and tend to perish should they continue hence the commentry in C1:46 re ‘418’ meaning ‘death’.]

48. My prophet is a fool with his one, one, one; are not they the Ox, and none by the Book?

[My prophet – A learned person is considered foolish/mistaken holding onto the doctrine known as the 3-in-1 ‘trinity’ as true.

the Ox – Are those who hold such attached/belonging to the beast (united lands), and

none by the book – these people are not educated on monotheism, and Aleister Crowley’s percieved them to be judged strongly for their belief in the trinity, after they individually pass away.]

49. [The trance of C1:33 still continues;]

Abrogate – [to abolish by authoritative action (i.e. the torture and cruxifiction of Christ)]
are all rituals – [events / deeds an occultist might partake in],
all ordeals – [tribulations],
all words and signs – [markers].

Ra-Hoor-Khuit hath taken his seat in the East at the Equinox of the [g]ods – [perhaps just as mentioned in Ezekiel 28:2 which is reportedly the Mediterranean as per the Strong’s Hebrew Exhaustive definition for 3220];
and let Asar – [pester/plague (perhaps here plague metaphorically represents followers of the Messiah (Christ)]
be with Isa –  [Jesus], who… are one.
But they are not of me – [Satan].
Let Asar be the adorant [devotee/follower],
Isa [Jesus] the sufferer – [when he was cuxified, and then ressurected];
Hoor in his secret name and splendour is the Lord initiating. [Perhaps in sum here, ‘Satan took his seat and was involved in the cruxifiction of King Jesus’.]

50.
[A.C has just given mention to ‘Isa’ (Jesus) in the previous verse, and now shows his comprehension of the Scriptures by describing his understanding of the general journeys people might be experiencing here.

At the same time in C3:16, A.C does not recommend seeking the promised (blessings of the bible), and that means there was a time when he was definitely not seeking to be a ‘lofty’ one;

Hierophantic task – [task of explaining a mystery].
the gross – the many (‘gross’ def. Latin; ‘coarse’) of mankind are sifted and learn as they pass through ‘wickedness’,
the fine – the more upright are sifted and learn through knowledge (e.g. of the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob’s Commandments), and
the lofty – believers in Jesus (ref. C1:49) everlasting life – even in the highest heaven.
Star and star – people currently being tried and living in different ways.
System and system –There is heaven and earth here, and there is also the new heavens and new earth above.

People on this earth (now known as the lake of fire), go to the new earth above after their time here.
Isaiah 66:22-24 shows us that all flesh acknowledge and worship the G-d of Abraham, and that those above can go out and look down upon people who have rebelled in the lake of fire (this earth here).

The lofty live forever without end above.]

51. There are four gates to one palace; the floor of that palace is of silver and gold; lapis lazuli & jasper are there; and all rare scents; jasmine & rose, and the emblems of death. Let him enter in turn or at once the four gates; let him stand on the floor of the palace. Will he not sink? Amn. Ho! warrior, if thy servant sink? But there are means [people]  and means [different types of people]. Be goodly [happy/content] therefore: dress ye all in fine apparel; eat rich foods and drink sweet wines and wines that foam [eat/rejoice]! Also, take your fill and will of love as ye will [immorality], when, where and with whom ye will! But always unto me. [Satan, though more apt is Nuit (Satan’s ego personified – the infinite space, and stars (C15, C1:22))]

52. If this be not aright; if ye confound the space-marks, saying: They are one; or saying, They are many; if the ritual be not ever unto me: then expect the direful judgments of Ra Hoor Khuit!

[If you don’t feel happy (goodly) feasting, eating and being sexually open (will of love as ye will – C1:51), but rather confound the boundaries (between peoples) and see that those of the city (G-d’s people) are unified and many, and you desire to learn their (‘wholesome’) ways and potentially join them…;

And, if your deeds (ritual) are not always to me (devoted to Satan in the way that he likes), then expect dreadful judgements from Ra Hoor Khuit!

Briefly, no judgement from Ra Hoor Khuit (Satan) is going to take place if a person did find themself desirous of joining those of the new city (G-d’s people).

Here is why;

This name of a god (aka ‘Horus sun-flesh’; is the name of a diety whom slayed the Typhon creature – ref. http://deity-of-the-week.blogspot.com/2015/12/ra-hoor-khuitheru-ra-ha-thelema.html?m=1 , ‘Typhon was deposed’ https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Typhon ).

Typhon is a serpant linked to ‘volcanic activity’ and thus the lake of fire (as we read in ‘Liber LXV Cordis Cincti Serpente…’ v1; the dead body of Osiris was floating on the Nile (typically figurative for Sheol/Hades) – however with the Typhon creature mentioned (representative of volcanic activity) – the dead body of Osiris (Satan) was thus actually in the lake of fire, this earth, where the dead of mankind are sent to ‘reincarnate’.

The grouping of the diety name ‘Ra Hoor Khuit’ here with Typhon (linked to volcanic forces¹) is thus strategic; Ra Hoor Khuit is representative of Satan literally destroyed in the lake of fire and sulphur – given the link to Typhon – just as Osiris was destroyed in the lake fire, as mentioned above. (¹ref. https://www.britannica.com/topic/Typhon )

Fallen spirit creatures such as Satan literally ceased existing at Armageddon and that is why it says, ‘…You will be sought, but you will never again be found, declares the Sovereign LORD.”’ (Ezekiel 26:21 NIV).

Thus, no judgement from Ra Hoor Khuit (Satan) is going to take place if a person did find themself desirous of joining those of the new city (G-d’s people).

Perhaps A Passage ‘Judgement’:
Perhaps a passive judgement can be seen; they will no longer be joined with those who do follow and embrace the Nuit (personified ego of Satan) and his forbidden fruit – they will have been ‘cut off’ as a consequence.]

53. This shall regenerate the world, the little world – [if people cling to A.C’s instruction to pursue an occult lifestyle, such would continue to populate this earth with ‘reincarnated’ mortal people.]

my sister –[since his judgement and literal destruction, Satan is like a deceased brother to the winged globe (C1:14-15)],
my heart & my tongue [Satan was made one with the earth (C2:26)],
unto whom I send this kiss – [the earth recieved Satans forbidden kiss, which consisted of forbidden fruit.

If one is figurativley kissed (‘venom’ C2:26) by Satan in this earth, they have been decieved and likley recieved the forbidden fruit.].

Also, o scribe and prophet, though thou be of the princes – [are of high social status and intellect],
it shall not assuage – [satisfy]
thee nor absolve thee – [pardon you from judgement. Meaning, a life pursuing Scripturally forbidden things, will not pardon a person from judgement from G-d].
But ecstasy – [Forbidden fruit]
be thine and joy of earth: ever To me! To me!

[On this earth, seeking and indulging in the forbidden fruit and embracing the Nu / Snake (memory of Satan) is ritual (deed) and renders honour to Satan’s ‘…carcass…’ (ref. Ezekiel 32:5 ESV).]

54. … o prophet, shalt  .. behold all these mysteries hidden therein.

55. The child of thy bowels –

56. Expect him not from the East, nor from the West; for from no expected house cometh that child. Aum!…

[Perhaps, he writes children are not from East or west (horizontal directions) – rather, children here come from the new earth above, thus they are from ‘no expected house’ (ref. Isaiah 65:17, 65:20).]

57. Invoke me under my stars! … There is the dove, and there is the serpent. Choose ye well! He, my prophet, hath chosen, knowing the law of the fortress, and the great mystery of the House of God.

[my prophet, hath chosen – meaning, Aleister Crowley, a learned person, chose the way of the serpent over the way of G-d.

This is all with the realisation and revealing of knowledge that there is no longer a serpent, but rather just the forbidden fruit he had left along with his memory (Nu – ref. C2:2 ‘the secret revealed’; when Hadith (Satan) was hidden (destroyed), only Nu (his memory and forbidden fruit) were left.]

All these old letters of my Book are aright; but [Tzaddi] is not the Star. This also is secret: my prophet shall reveal it to the wise.

[Tzaddi, a ‘righteous person’ is not a star as per the definition of a star in C1:3 (stars are essentially men and women whom reincarnate – ref. C1:3).

A Tzaddi is a person who escapes the on going ‘reincarnation’ cycle (Obediah 1:17) and instead lives eternally above as they had believed the gospel (Acts 15:11).]

58. I give unimaginable joys on earth:…

[During a person’s lifetime on this earth, if they embrace the Nuit (personified ego of Satan), they also enjoy the forbidden fruit he left.

Satan cannot physically give a person a single thing (he was literally destroyed and became one with the earth C2:26, ‘crossing over’ to non existence (Ra-Hoor-Khuit – C1:14), and now those who minister to him, only minister to infinite space (C1:14-15), his memory.]

Upon death – this is the riddle answered; As Satan no longer exists, he cannot really demand anything in a person’s life or death either, and such includes sacrifice (aught sacrifice).

Death here for many is known as the dissolution (cancelling of a partnership/alliance) – a person no longer has forbidden fruit in their possession etc. (C1:30-32).

A person whom partakes of forbidden fruit is prone to sinning more, thus Scripturally a person has peace.]

59. My incense is of resinous woods & gums; and there is no blood therein: because of my hair the trees of Eternity.

60. My number is 11, as all their numbers who are of us. The Five Pointed Star, with a Circle in the Middle, & the circle is Red. My colour is black to the blind, but the blue & gold – [as per C1:50-51, these represent the gemmed azure aka. blue sky (C1:14-15), and the sun. These show us that the earth is where Satan was judged and literally destroyed – becoming ‘none’]

are seen of the seeing [blue and gold are prominent in egyptian artwork]. Also I have asecret glory for them that love me. – [Secret winged flame (C1:16) aka forbidden fruit]

61. But to love me is better than all things: if under the night stars in the desert thou presently burnest mine incense before me, invoking me with a pure heart, and the Serpent flame therein – [serpant flame is the winged secret flame of C1:16 aka forbidden fruit given to the beast (united lands)],
thou shalt come a little to lie in my bosom. – [A person who burns incense and calls in Satan’s name is described as a little child who lies in a bosom and naturally gors to sleep. This is symbollic for ‘goes to their death’ and forfeits their opportunity to gain eternal life if they fail to amend their ways and be found believing in Christ; Messiah.]
For one kiss wilt thou then be willing to give all – [if a person is figurativley kissed by the Nuit (personified ego of Satan), they recieve forbidden fruit, and are likened to a person who is willing to give their life in judgement as it is Biblically prohibbited to embrace Satan.];
but whoso gives one particle of dust shall lose all in that hour – [if a person sacrifices to Satan,  even his memory, as we read in the opening of the verse – this is thebequivalent to sacrificing to idols,  and is a grave deed which is Scripturally prohibbited at judgement (Revelation 21:8)].
Ye shall gather goods and store of women and spices; ye shall wear rich jewels; ye shall exceed the nations of the earth in spendour & pride; but always in the love of me, and so shall ye come to my joy – [those who follow the way of the dragon, follow his Nuit (personified ego), and tend to grow wealthy like he grew wealthy and proud (Ezekiel 28:4-5).
…Put on the wings, and arouse the coiled splendour within you –[meaning, in your body as Satan before he sprang out of the Abyss/Sheol/Hades in C2:26]:
come unto me! –[meaning, just as he did he went to meet his desire (Nuit), sinned (shoot forth venom), and literally was destroyed forever, became ‘one’ with the earth (C2:26), when he ‘crossed over’ to non-existence (Ra-Hoor-Khuit – (C1:14-15)].

62. At all my meetings with you shall the priestess say — and her eyes shall burn with desire as she stands bare and rejoicing in my secret temple — To me! To me! calling forth the flame of the hearts of all in her love-chant. – [In an occult ceremonial meeting in the context of memorial to the now dead Satan, traditionally a woman would seek a large amount of winged secret flame (C1:16), as they indulge in immorality].

63. Sing the rapturous love-song unto me! Burn to me perfumes! Wear to me jewels! Drink to me, for I love you! I love you!

[These types of offerings and their consequence are listed in C1:61.

Interesting note: secual immorality and food sacrificed to idols (Inc. deceased Satan) is given mention as something Jezebel would teach in Revelation 2:20-22. Jezebel is an alias for Satan, and she was thrown onto a ‘sickbed’ (i.e. judged and literally destroyed).]

64. I am the blue-lidded daughter of Sunset; – [the dead body and spirit of Satan (Lucifer) as we also read in C1:19, 1:21, 1:14. This became one with the earth (C2:26), meaning it ceased existing (Ezekiel 28:18-19) as he ‘crossed over’ into non-existence (C1:14; Ra-Hoor-Khuit – ‘he lives in crossed over’).]
I am the naked brilliance of the voluptuous night-sky. – [Nuit (personified ego of Satan), which evaporated into nothingness; the ‘infinite space’ and ‘infinite stars’ (C1:15, 1:22). This what any follower of the dragon is literally ministering to today (C1:15).]

65. To me! To me!

66. The Manifestation of Nuit… end. – [The making known of the personified ego of Satan, which is actually nothingness, is complete.]


Chapter II

C2:26.
[The parallel to this verse is C1:14-15]
I am the secret Serpent – [Satan (Lucifer) the being]
coiled about to spring – [forth from the Abyss/Sheol/Hades]:
in my coiling there is joy – [I go to finish decieving the nations at Armageddon, and make war on the people of G-d].
If I lift up my head – [and look up],
I and my Nuit are one. – [I and my ‘personified ego’ (‘Nuit’) are one. This is said as, Satan dreamed and aspired to be like G-d, seated high (Isaiah 14:14). If Satan looked up high, there he would see his ego mich like in C:14.]
If I droop [look] down [with] mine head, and shoot forth venom – [and decieve the nations with my cunning and lies (venom) at Armageddon (Revelation 20:7-9)],
then is raptureof the earth – [then came the spiritual removal of the earth – it passed away (Revelation 21:1) and was from then onwards described as the lake of fire (Isaiah 66:24, 9:18-19, Revelation 20:9-10, 15:2, 21:8)],
and I and the earth are one – [once Satan looked down and decieved the nations with his ‘venom’, spiritual fire (judgement) came down from heaven and consumed him (Revelation 20:9).
He was then figuratively thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur (a judgement description; ‘very wicked’), and his body was turned into ashes (Ezekiel 28:18-19).
C1:14 states this when it says the ‘winged earth… are mine’, and this is why from then on those who minister to him now minister to ‘none’ (C1:27) – nothingness; ‘infinite space’ (C1:15) and the ‘infinite stars’ (C1:22)].

C2:27. There is great danger in me – [a great danger in following Satan post his destruction (see C2:26)];
for who doth not understand these runes – [for all who do not understand these ancient words (Holy Scripture)]
shall make a great miss – [if one misunderstands the context of the ancient words, after they die they will find themselves as actually not in the underworld with Satan as they expected. Such would thus be unexpected.

The occult philosopher describes the literal end of Death and Hades as being destroyed in exchange for the judgement and literal destruction of Satan, described as a ‘dog’ (C2:33) – this taking place just verses after C2:26, his judgement.

‘dog’ is a word that is typically reserved for sinful men and women of the nations. Satan is described as an ‘arrogant’ (sinful) man in Ezekiel 28:2 and Habakkuk 2:5.

Since Judgement Day (Armageddon 69CE/AD) the dead here only go upward, and after they die in the new earth above (Isaiah 65:17, 65:20; ‘sinners’), they are eventually sent to this earth again (‘the lake of fire’ – ref. Isaiah 66:24, Revelation 21:8) to ‘reincarnate’ (Ezekiel 30:23, 30:26). If found believing, a person escapes such a cycle and is given eternal life (John 3:14-16, Obadiah 1:17)

Mankind no longer go to Sheol/Hades, as Hades was destroyed (C2:28-29, Revelation 20:14).].

He shall fall down into the pit called Because – [Sheol/Hades],
and there he shall perish with the dogs of Reason – [people (dogs) of lies – sinners (C2:32; ‘Reason is a lie’). There is a development with Sheol/Hades though (see C2:28)].

28. Now a curse upon Because and his kin – [a curse upon Sheol/Hades and its kin, those inside it (those who inherit it).

What is the curse upon Because (Sheol/Hades)?

The family (occupants) of Sheol/Hades are judged (Revelation 20:13).

This judgement results in them being thrown into the lake of fire (judgement) – where they ‘reincarnated’ into the earth here (lake of fire).

These remain as mortal people, and eventually perish above aswell – if their name is not found in the Lamb’s Book of Life (Revelation 20:13, 20:15).

Their ‘reincarnation’ process begins again, and they have opportunity to do better, even best.

Sheol/Hades are spiritual places where cursed also. These where literally destroyed (Ezekiel 29:12) in the spiritual fire (judgement) that makes up the lake of fire (Revelation 20:14).

From here earth became known as the second death, the lake of fire (Revelation 20:14)]!

29. May Because – [Sheol/Hades]
be accursed – [destroyed, desolate (Ezekiel 32:15)] for ever!

30. If Will [C3:34; Hrumachis -> said to represent sun -> ‘Satan’] stops and cries Why[cries out*], invoking Because [sheol/hades], then Will [‘Satan’] stops & does nought [is literally destroyed and can do nothing anymore].

[Support for C2:30: Hrumachis  (C3:34) – will / authority. This name is Greek for Hor-em-akhet;
He was thought to be a source of wisdom as well as a representation of the sun. 
https://ancientegyptonline.co.uk/horemakhet/#:~:text=As%20Horemakhet%20(Harmakhet%2C%20Harmachis),Khepri%2C%20the%20rising%20sun).]

31. If Power asks why, then is Power weakness.

If Power [C3:72; double wand of power (judgement) -> the word (of G-d), however here a play in words, so just ‘the word’ (John 1:1 NWT; Messiah (Christ)] asks why, then is Power [Christ] weakness. [i.e. ‘is not learned’ (ref. C2:11; ‘I am stronger’ – as opposed to ‘weakness’)
This means, that ‘if Christ asked the question why was Sheol (Hades) destroyed (accursed forever)?’ – he would look like an uneducated person; as this destruction of Sheol (Hades) is what had happened at Judgement Day 69CE (Ezekiel 32:11-15, Revelation 20:14) with his being present, of knowledge, and acting as a judge for all (Matthew 25:31-33, Ezekiel 32:4-15, 1 Corinthians 15:25).

[Support for C2:31: C3:72 is a support here; I am the Lord of the Double Wand of Power [double edged sword; the word of G-d described sharper than a double edged sword. A sword proceeds from mouth of Christ. Christ speaks the words of G-d. Double edged sword represents words of judgement.’ (Revelation 19:15, Hebrews 4:12, John 12:48-49)] – ; the wand of the Force of Coph Nia–but my left hand is empty [Judged the goats, including Satan (Matthew 25)], for I have crushed [judged] an Universe; & nought remains. [Heaven and earth passed away (Revelation 21:1), and are referred to as the symbollic lake of fire (Revelation 21:8, 15:2).]

32. Also reason is a lie – [(this shows us C2:27 means dogs that ‘lie’ no longer go to Sheol/Hades, but to this earth (fig. the lake of fire)];
for there is a factor infinite & unknown – [the lake of fire is a place where the united lands of mankind (beast – Revelation 13:1, 17:15) are tormented forever in wickedness. The people  on the united lands however, eventually die, then go upwards to the new earth for existence (Isaiah 65:17, 65:20)];
& all their words are skew-wise – [all their words are distorted and dishonest for the most part in the lake of fire, the world of lies (Revelation 21:8)].

33. Enough of Because – [Sheol/Hades]!
Be he [it] damned [accursed and no more (C2:28)] for a dog!

[The occult philosopher describes the literal end of Death and Hades as being destroyed in exchange for the judgement and literal destruction of Satan, described as a ‘dog’ (C2:33) – this taking place just verses after C2:26, his judgement.

‘dog’ is a word that is typically reserved for sinful men and women of the nations. Satan is described as an ‘arrogant’ (sinful) man in Ezekiel 28:2 and Habakkuk 2:5.]

With regard to the destruction of Sheol/Hades (C2:27-33) and the figurative stele of revealing (C3:10);

The stele of revealing represents ‘the secret of how Satan was literally destroyed – and thus the memory of him’. It is an ‘offering stele’, and thus is also of great interest in C2:27-33 as it states Sheol/Hades (‘Because’) was destroyed for the price of ‘a dog’ (Satan).

This means that A.C stated Satan’s literal destruction was a figurative offering for the destruction of Sheol/Hades.]


Chapter III

1. Abrahadabra; the reward of Ra Hoor Khut.

This verse lets us know that we will be learning about the destruction (‘reward’) of Satan.

We will see that Abrahadabra gives us two numbers from some simple mathematics; 10 and 11;

Abrahadabra tells us that the ‘reward’ being spoken of in C3:1 is the complete (10), literal destruction of Satan (11).

This tells us that the ‘reward’ being spoken of in C3:1 is the complete (10), literal destruction of Satan (11).

The Number 10
Completeness. Abrahadabra speaks of Satan’s complete (10) reward, which was destruction.

The number 10 can represent completeness and is obtained by the following equation;

The first row of numbers are obtained from their place on the Latin alphabet chart. They are added in pairs to arrive at final number at the top of the pictured number equation. If a number has two digits (e.g. 17), these are counted as a pair and added together (1+7=8). The final number at the top is 10, and this represents completeness.)

The Number 11
C2:15-16 assists us here in understanding what ‘Abrahadabra’ shows us further, in that C3:1 speaks of the following;

There are 11 characters in the word Abrahadabra, and 11 is a number that is attached to two titles which represent Satan (‘The Empress’ & ‘the Hierophant’) in C2:15.

In C2:16, the number 11 represents a third title/term (‘Nu’) – which represents Satan’s personified memory.

The Nu being a personification of Satan’s memory is not Satan himself – which is why it says ‘not of me’ (i.e. Satan (‘The Empress’ & ‘the Hierophant’) is not of me the Nu (personified memory of Satan) – as Satan was destroyed, as per C2:26, C1:14-15).


11. This shall be your only proof. I forbid argument. Conquer! That is enough. I will make easy to you the abstruction – [pulling away, diverting]
from the ill-ordered – [misinformed, unenlightened; not knowing of Satan’s literal judgement and destruction]
house in the Victorious City – [associated with the destruction of the second temple in Jerusalem at Armageddon (Judgement Day) circa 69CE, and the mark of the beast].
Thou shalt thyself convey it with worship – [by still honoring Satan’s Nu (Satan’s personified memory],
o prophet – [learned person],
though thou likest it not – [Re: ‘…let them speak not of thee at all…’ (C1:27); A.C. states that those enlightened accept the reality of Satan’s destruction, and then don’t need to speak of it, as they focus on moving forward.].

Thou shalt have danger & trouble. – [The unenlightened, irrational, ‘bad’ occultist will tend to disagree – however they will eventually cease (C2:5; ‘purged’).
The majority however, will seek this enlightened understanding, applaude and cheer you on for your enlightenment (Q2:62, 2:64-65, 2:5; ‘edified’).]

Ra-Hoor-Khu is with thee [in it’s correct context, in ‘the form of the Nu’ (personified memory of Satan; see notes on C2:15-16)].

Worship me with fire & blood; worship me with swords & with spears. Let the woman be girt with a sword before me: let blood flow to my name. Trample down the Heathen; be upon them, o warrior, I will give you of their flesh to eat! –

[In Q3:11 A.C has just spoken on the abstruction (pulling away, diverting) from the ill-ordered (misinformed, unenlightened; not knowing of Satan’s literal judgement and destruction) house in the Victorious City [associated with the destruction of the second temple in Jerusalem at Armageddon (Judgement Day) circa 69CE, and the mark of the beast].

Therefore by all rights, these worship practices are not obligatory. This verse here is instead an expression which reads along the lines of A.C saying ‘don’t stop honoring him!’

A person will see thus to be true in the following verses;].

12. Sacrifice cattle, little and big: after a child.

[Following the expression of the previous verse (C3:11) – it goes on;]

13. But not now.

[Here we see that the explanation for C3:11-12 is correct.

There would be a time (post Armageddon circa 69CE) when those who follow Satan, need not sacrifice anymore, as he ceased existing – leaving only his memory (Nu) behind (C2:15-16), and the forbidden fruit (C2:44; ‘kisses of Nu’, of which all who seek and learn of Satan (more specifically his memory), tend to be figurativley ‘kissed’ and recieve forbidden fruit).]

14. Ye shall see that hour, o blessed Beast, and thou the Scarlet Concubine [city] of his desire!

[Aleister Crowley here is stating that the united land and those upon it (including to misinformed Victorious City), will one day become enlightened as to Satan’s judgement and literal destruction, and know that sacrifice is no longer required.

Why? Because Satan was judged and literally destroyed (see comment C1:14-15, 2:26) at Armageddon (69CE) – the destruction of the second temple in Jerusalem, the spiritual judgement of mankind (Revelation 19:18-21, 20:8-10, 20:13, 20:15), and the destruction of the underworld (Sheol/Hades – ref. Revelation 20:14).]

15. Ye shall be sad thereof.

[Why? Because Satan was actually judged and literally destroyed at Armageddon (69CE), and thus sacrifice and offerings are of nonspiritual benefit. ]

16. Deem not too eagerly to catch the promises; fear not to undergo the curses. Ye, even ye, know not this meaning all.

[Alistair Crowley felt that, eventhough Satan was destroyed, he preferred to seek what the world may call enlightenment, and also indulge in sexual rituals either other people than a spouse.

He therefore does not encourage man to pursue the way of the L-RD which involves faith and obeying the commandments – rather, he states curses (from G-d) for sinning and not observing the commandments is not so bad.

He felt this was a riddle at the time, perhaps this is due to how the people of the nations do not typically know the commandments of G-d.]

17. Fear not at all; fear neither men nor Fates, nor gods, nor anything. Money fear not, nor laughter of the folk folly, nor any other power in heaven or upon the earth or under the earth. Nu is your refuge as Hadit your light; and I am the strength, force, vigour, of your arms.

Fear not at all; Here he states not to fear anything, but to take comfort (refuge) in Nu – that is, the embrace of the memory of Satan, just as Satan (Hadith) was once your light (re: C3:13; ‘But not now’). The forbidden fruit is ‘the strength, force, vigour, of your arms.’

Nu is your refuge as Hadit your light – Nu (the memory of Satan) is an occultists refuge, and Satan [was once] an occultist’s light (hope etc.). The ‘was once’ interpretative insertion can be seen from reading the comments on C3:11-12, 3:13-15.

I am the strength, force, vigour, of your arms. – This is likley the forbidden fruit (likley referenced in C2:44; ‘kisses of Nu’)

under the earth – no longer is there an underworld and this was confirmed previously in C2:27-33.

18. Mercy let be off; damn them who pity! Kill and torture; spare not; be upon them!

[Just like in Q2:55, Q2:58, Q2:60, A.C states that an enlightened occultist isn’t prey, but is still proud – though better positioned and informed with regards to his lifestyle and decision making (re: C3:13).]
