In Nomine Babalon, LXXVII

LXXVII

Seven and seventy droplets of dew

And seven plus seven by seven are two,

Plus seventy-seven reflecting the dawn;

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

LXVI

Seven are the heads of the Beast that She rides!

Concealed, Her star in the firmament hides

The mystery of Her initiation!

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

Hierarchies Recapitulated from Part VII: The “Seven” Thrones in In Operibus Sigillo Dei Aemeth by David Richard Jones.

“We add the following as a demonstration of the consistency of this division in regard to the Thrones.

Mi: Of those seven Seals and the seven semicircles than contain them “the 7 angles next unto the uppermost Circumference”

Ur: “Those 7 letters, are the 7 Seats of the One everlasting GOD. His 7 secret Angels proceeding from every letter and Cross so formed.”

Michael & Uriel, Liber Mysteriorum Secundus 20 March 1582″ [via, see]

Part III: The Circumference and the Hieroglyphic Monad in In Operibus Sigillo Dei Aemeth by David Richard Jones.

“Curiously, and we have to wonder if it was known or unknown to Dee, the geometry of the Monad as analyzed and expected in Theorem XXIII when applied to a circle subdivides the circumference of a circle into seven equal divisions with almost perfect elegance. This finding was first made by Clay Holden, in whose debt we are for this important discovery and the initial geometric constructions demonstrating the figure.

This correlation of the Monad to the sevenfold division of the circle indicates that an intimate relationship may exist between the metaphysical formulae of Dee’s Monad and Sigillum, sevenfold division being the very foundation of the formulae of the Sigillum.” [via]

 

 

Part III: The Circumference and the Hieroglyphic Monad in In Operibus Sigillo Dei Aemeth by David Richard Jones.

“The encoding of this connection is indicated by the relationship of the geometry of the Monad with that of the Sigillum. Note that the problem of constructing a regular heptagon sept-dividing (dividing a circle into seven equal parts) with the aid of a compass and a straightedge only without the aid of measurement has been a problem since classical times. So difficult a problem is it that no such formulation is provided in the Elements of Euclid, to which John Dee wrote his famous preface. A solution by Archimedes is preserved in Arabic, but was not rediscovered until 1927, and is notable even to its author/preserver for its lack of elegance.” [via]

The Deeper Symbolism of Freemasonry from The Meaning of Masonry by Walter Leslie Wilmshurst.

“We are told seven or more years was the normal period, though less sufficed in worthy cases. The most severe tests of discipline, of purity, of self-balance were required before a neophyte was permitted to pass forward, and a reminiscence of these tests of fitness is preserved in our own working by the conducting of the candidate to the two wardens, and submitting him to a merely formal trial of efficiency.” [via]
