english qaballa

…serving a different reality


E. Qaballistic


God is tricky. I mean, it’s a tricky word. Tends to get conflated with the Hebrew deity, and as I’ve suggested elsewhere, we are in a position to attempt a new and hopefully more entertaining definition…

…even though trying to define God these days is a bit like trying to define the “Spirit of Cricket”. We’ve all got an idea of what we mean, and we broadly agree in the most general terms, but precise definitions are somewhat elusive at best, and we come closest when describing what it isn’t. Atheists have a pretty clear notion of what it is that they don’t believe in; and the willow-and-leather brigade know very well when something “isn’t cricket.”


outAnd nobody enquires too closely into matters of Creation, which is supposedly God’s area of expertise.


Which is odd, since Magick is all about creation, and Creation is all about magick.


But I digress.



The word GOD has the value 24 in E.Q. which is the value of the letter T. This immediately brings up an association with the 32nd Path, and all the symbolism that pertains thereunto. 24 is the number ascribed by AL II:76 to the Manifest Kether on the Complete Tree, and T is the letter given to Tiphareth.

OK so far? – not a bad fit with the old Judeo-Christian correspondences, I suggest…


Right. (Well, we had to start somewhere).


                 – Forward!


GOD can be written as GO D. As Crowley said, one’s function is to GO; and D=6=LAW.
The word then becomes a glyph of the Law of GO-ing.



G=11 and O=7, so in numbers these two letters read 11, 7 or 117. This is the value of Kether manifest in the Domain of Time. It is the value of GEMINI and THE LIGHT. It’s worth noting that this doesn’t violate any traditional ideas, it simply puts them together differently…

GOD=24=NOW. And that’s how come God is everywhere, all the time.

An easy E. Qaballistic definition of GOD comes out as “the irresistible impulse to motion, for the transmutation of which a sacrifice is necessary, that is continuously happening everywhere.” We might add something about the apparent dualities, but that’s a different story…

So, is it just a single omnipresent deity with all the authority, power of life’n’death, judge, jury, benefactor and executioner, all rolled into one? – or is it a crowd of gods and other beings in various states of deshabille all rompin’ about from Olympus to Valhalla, proddin’ the mortals and having a jolly fine time? – and are they (or is it) above us, or  below?

We can do better than this binary black or white bickering and Right but Repulsive/Wrong but Romantic reasoning. We have three more planets functioning in our philosophy than the neo-platonists could have dreamed of, not to mention several new gods who are not affiliated to the planets. We are living in a time when we can think of our planet hanging in space, with no particular up or down and only a few miles of terrestrial substance between us and eternity. We are living in a time when we can think of a cat shut up in a box with a decaying radioactive isotope, and comprehend the notion that the cat is both alive and dead.

Schrodinger, who came up with that idea, also said “The number of minds in the Universe is One.”

So we should be able to cope with ONE=46, MANY=51=ONES.




In this book we have compiled a full introduction to the English Qaballistic system of initiatory magickal alpha-numeric correspondences revealed in the vocabulary of Liber AL vel Legis. The methods of E.Qaballistic working, and the most significant numeric symbols, are described in detail, and the unequivocal solution to AL II:76 is clearly explained. The effects of initiation by E.Q. and the reasons behind the Ordeal X are also dealt with. This book presents a genuinely consistent and coherent view of magickal reality underpinned by the integrity of pure numbers, and shows the reader how easily it may be attained. We’ve made it  easy to read for beginners and for experienced occultists alike – for, as a Brother of the O.’.A.’.A.’. Second Order said recently, “E.Q. is best explained as if to children.”
One of the nice things about the English Qaballa is that it proves the divine origin of the Book of the Law: the numerical correspondences work, and that is beyond human devising. If you’re looking for a comprehensive, coherent and complete alternative to the dualistic conflicts of the Western Occult Tradition and its historically patriarchal systems; if you are interested in a practical system of self-initiation synchronised with astrological phenomena, which integrates all other systems, past and present, through the unassailable purity of numbers – a system which explains II:76, and the significance of the five-pointed star, and Woman as Goddess leading Man as Beast, and those dodgy bits in Chapter Three – to say the least! – then this might just suit you.
Unfortunately another important thing about the English Qaballa is that it was not discovered by Aleister Crowley, nor by Achad, nor by any of their adherents, even though the original manuscript holds a major clue in the curious grid on Sheet 16 of the third chapter. So if you’re looking for more Crowleyanity, or if you’re worried about the health and safety of your sacred cows, go your way, and think not more upon this lie.
