PREFACE

CAN any good thing come out of Palestine? is the broader anti-Semitic retort to the sneer cast by the Jews themselves against the harmless and natural Nazarene; one more example of the poetic justice of History. And no doubt such opponents of the modern Jew will acclaim this volume as an admirable disproof of that thesis which it purports to uphold.

The dissimilarities, amounting in some cases to sheer contradiction, which mark many numbers, will appear proof positive that there is nothing in the numerical Qabalah, especially as we may presume that by filling up this dictionary from the ordinary Hebrew Lexicon one would arrive at a mere hotch-pot.

Apart from this, there is a deeper-lying objection to the Qabalah; viz., that the theory is an example of the fallacy Post hoc propter hoc.

Are we to believe, asks the sceptic, that a number of learned men deliberately sat down and chose words for the sake of their numerical value? Language is a living thing, with many sources and diverse; can it be moulded in any such arbitrary fashion?

The only reply seems to be a mere assertion that to some extent it certainly is so. Examples of a word being spelt deliberately wrong do occur; and such a jugglery as the changing of the names of Abram and Sarai to Abraham and Sarah can hardly be purposeless. Once admit the end of such a wedge, and it is difficult to say whether it may not be driven home so far as to split asunder the Tree of Knowledge, if not the Tree of Life.

Another line of argument is the historical. We do not here refer to the alleged forgery of the Qabalah by Rabbi Moses ben Leon — was it not? — but to the general position of the ethnologist that the Jews were an entirely barbarous race, incapable of any spiritual pursuit. That they were polytheists is clear from the very first verse of Genesis; that Adonai Melekh is identical with “Moloch” is known to every Hebraist. The “Old Testament” is mainly the history of the struggle of the phallic Jehovah against the rest of the Elohim, and that his sacrifices were of blood, and human blood at that, is indisputable.

Human sacrifices are to-day still practised by the Jews of Eastern Europe, as is set forth at length by the late Sir Richard Burton in the MS. which the wealthy Jews of England have compassed heaven and earth to suppress, and evidenced by the ever-recurring Pogroms against which so senseless an outcry is made by those who live among those degenerate Jews who are at least not cannibals.[1]

Is it to such people, indeed, that we are to look for the highest and subtlest spiritual knowledge?

To this criticism there are but two answers. The first, that an esoteric tradition of great purity may co-exist with the most crass exoteric practice. Witness the Upanishads in the land of Jagganath, hook-swinging, and the stupidest forms of Hatha-Yoga.

Witness the Tipitaka (with such perfections as the Dhammapada) in the midst of peoples whose science of torture would seem to have sprung from no merely human imagination. The descriptions in the Tipitaka itself of the Buddhist Hells are merely descriptions of the actual tortures inflicted by the Buddhists on their enemies.

The second, that after all is said, I find it work very well. I do not care whether Sq.Rt. -1 is an impossible, an unimaginable thing, or whether de Moivre really invented it, and if so, whether de Moivre was an immortal man, and wore whiskers. It helps me to make certain calculations; and so long as that is so, it is useful, and I stick to it.

Other criticisms of the methods of the Qabalah itself have been made and disposed of in the article on the subject in “The Temple of Solomon the King” (Equinox V) and no further reference need be made to them in this place. It is only necessary to say that the article should be studied most thoroughly, and also the article “A Note on Genesis” in the second number of The Equinox.

With these two weapons, and the Sword of the Spirit, the Practicus, fully armed, may adventure himself in the great battle wherein victory is Truth.

PERDURABO.

EDITORIAL NOTE

THIS dictionary was begun by Allan Bennett (Fra∴ Iehi Aour, now Bhikkhu Ananda Metteya) in the last decade of the nineteenth century since Ψ-J.C. It was bequeathed to the present Editor, with many other magical MSS., on I.A.'s departure for Ceylon in 1899.

Frater Perdurabo used it, and largely added to it, in the course of his Qabalistic workings. With George Cecil Jones (Fra∴ Volo Noscere) he further added to it by making it a complete cross-correspondence to the Book DCCLXXVII.

It was further revised and checked, re-copied by a Jewish scribe, and again checked through, in the year V of the present Era.

The mathematical additions were continued by Fra∴ P. and Fra∴ Lampada Tradam; and the MS. finally copied on a specially constructed typewriter by Gerald Rae Fraser (Fra∴ Ψ) who added yet further mathematical data.

This copy has again been checked by Fra∴ P. and Soror∴ N.N. and the proofs further by three separate scholars.

The method of employing the dictionary has been fully indicated in The Temple of Solomon the King (Equinox V).

None of the editors claim to possess even the smallest degree of scholarship. The method of compilation has been to include all words given in Von Rosenroth's Qabalistic Dictionary, those specially commented on in S.D., I.R.Q., and I.Z.Q., those given in 777, and those found by Fratres I.A. and P. Some of them are found in texts of the Hebrew Scriptures which appeared to those adepts to be of magical importance. Owing to their carelessness, the meaning of some few words has been lost, and cannot now be traced.

□ (Square) after a number shows that the number is a perfect square.

√ (Square Root) before a number shows that the number is a perfect square.

3√ (Cube Root) before a number shows that the number is a perfect cube.

4√ (Fourth Root) before a number shows that the number is a squared square.

👑 (Crown) after a number shows that the number is a perfect number.

L (Factorial) about a number shows that the number is factorial*. (*See special table following.)

LL (Sub-factorial) about a number shows that the number is sub-factorial.

∑ (1—k) is an abbreviation for “the sum of the first k natural numbers.”

TABLE OF FACTORS

ODD NUMBERS FROM 1 TO 3321 (5'S EXCLUDED);

SHOWING LOWEST FACTORS, AND PRIMES (P.).

“—” INDICATES THAT THE NUMBER IS DIVISIBLE BY 3.

{WEH NOTE: This table was originally published five columns to a page. It is here reproduced the same format.

Note also that Crowley gives “1” as the first odd number. This is not always used by mathematicians. More significantly, he takes “1” as the first Prime number, and hardly any mathematicians of his time or the present do that. The first prime number is considered to be “2” by mathematicians, with “1” being the multiplicative identity element.

The main structure of this table is that of a compressed factoralization reference, always yielding the lowest factor directly or implicitly. Once that is obtained, any remaining factors may be found after division by the first factor and recursion to the table. Even numbers and numbers divisible by five are omitted in view of the fact that the lowest factor of such numbers is obviously 2 or 5.}

Footnotes:

[1] WEH NOTE: Crowley's irony at times has led to his detriment. Elsewhere, and much later, he denies the validity of the “Blood Libel”. Here he writes in somewhat dubious humor an anti-Semitic seeming introduction to a book on Jewish mysticism!

[2] WEH NOTE: There is a limited use in Gematria for the vowel points. All dots are counted as 10 and all linears, whether vertical or horizontal, are counted as six. On this method see the collections at Oxford: HUNT. 41.

[3] WEH NOTE: This word actually means “Bride groom” or “Lord of the Bride”. It is Syriac, not Hebrew in origin. The meaning “Lord of the Flies” is an ubiquitous error through-out much of Christian and European magical history, so general as to have its own standing.

[4] WEH NOTE: SIC, should be Angel of 3 Taurus if the Shemhametphorash is properly constructed from Ex.
