Liber AL vel Legis and the Illuminati Cipher

Hello friends,

This is a message that is related to an older post of mine, called "Ciphers of the Illuminati and the One Dollar bill", which you can read in

In this message (which will be structured in three parts) I'll show you some recent discoveries that I've been making while applying the Cipher of the Illuminati to the text of Liber AL vel Legis, the holiest book of Thelema.

In the meantime, as I presume some of you may be interested in this subject, I'll leave here a very curious discovery made near to March 5th.

Watch the Holy Sigil of the A.'.A.'.

In it you can see the sigil of Babalon hiding the formula 77+(7+7)/7+77 = 156 (Babalon) which circles a form that resembles the greek letter Theta (Θ). Also, in the upper part of the sigil, you can see a "squared circle", which is a primitive form of the greek letter Theta and the hebrew letter Teth. Theta is the initial of the words "Thelema" (Will) and "Therion" (the Beast), and it was also --in its primitive shape as a point within a circle-- the symbol of Ra and Aton, demiurgic solar gods. In the greek isopsephia, the value of "Theta" is 318, which is the value of "Helios", the Sun. As a side note, notice that according to the Illuminati Cipher the word "TETH" sums 51, which has the same value as "CIRCLE", "SUN", "HELIOS", and "PTAH" (egyptian creator god).

Besides all these considerations, which can be expanded to a greater field, notice too that all around the central Sigil of Babalon there are the words Sigillum Sanctum Fraternitatis A.'.A.'. These words are important, as it will be shown.

According to the Illuminati Cipher, which is this one (as exposed in Abbé Barruel's 1797 book "Memoirs illustrating the History of Jacobinism"):

A=12 ....... I,J=4 ...... R=17
B=11 ....... K=3 ........ S=18
C=10 ....... L=2 ........ T=19
D=9 ........ M=1 ........ U,V=20
E=8 ........ N=13 ....... W=21
F=7 ........ O=14 ....... X=22
G=6 ........ P=15 ....... Y=23
H=5 ........ Q=16 ....... Z=24

... the values are:

- SIGILLUM = 18+4+6+4+2+2+20+1 = 57
- SANCTUM = 18+12+13+10+19+20+1 = 93
- FRATERNITATIS = 7+17+12+19+8+17+13+4+19+12+19+4+18 = 169
- AA = 12+12 = 24

Total: 57+93+169+24 = 343

Amazingly enough, 343 is 7x7x7, and this is curious --to say the least--because there is, as seen, another very explicit numerical reference to multiple 7's.

By the way, according to the Illuminati Cipher:
-> "Point within a Circle" = 194 = "Great Central Sun"

And for the value 343, you have the following correspondences:
-> "Hoor-Pa-Kraat" + "Ra-Hoor-Khu" + "Heru-Ra-Ha" (the Horus Trinity)
-> "Igne Natura Renovatur Integra" (the I.N.R.I. formula)

After calculating the value of "Sigillum Sanctum Fraternitatis A.A." I made, however, another startling discovery. If you add the value of this sentence to the value of "BABALON" (which can be seen in the same sigil, in a circular fashion around the center) you'll have:

343 (or 7x7x7, as shown)
B(11) + A(12) + B(11) + A(12) + L(2) + O(14) + N(13) = 75
418, the qabalistic value of the Word of the Aeon (Abrahadabra)!!!



And now, as promised, here's some of the stuff I've been finding lately about a curious relation between Liber AL vel Legis and the Illuminati Cipher, and how it unlocks some of the riddles in this book. Unless stated otherwise, every time I say "the Cipher" I'll be referring to the Illuminati Cipher.


AL I:24
– "I am Nuit and my word is six and fifty."

According to the Cipher, "Nuit" sums 56.


AL I:54,55
– "Change not as much as the style of a letter; for behold! thou, o prophet, shalt not behold all these mysteries hidden therein."
– "The child of thy bowels, he shall behold them."

Note that in the original manuscript of Liber AL Crowley underlined the word "he" so as to show that this word is of some importance. Applying the Cipher to this word, it's value is H(5) + E(8) = 13, which is the gematric value of the hebrew word Achad (Unity). Charles Stansfeld Jones, a.k.a. Parzival or "Frater Achad" as he's most known nowadays, was believed by many, including by Crowley himself, to have been the magickal Child of the Beast 666 and the one who would reveal --and did indeed reveal to a certain extent-- some of the mysteries of AL.


AL II:2,3
– "Come! all ye, and learn the secret that hath not yet been revealed. I, Hadit, am the complement of Nu, my bride. I am not extended, and Khabs is the name of my House."
– "In the sphere I am everywhere the centre, as she, the circumference, is nowhere found."

In these verses we are presented to the symbol of the union of Nuit (or Nu) and Hadit, which are respectively represented by the all-encompassing circle ("the circumference") and the infinitesimal point in the centre of the circle. There is no need for further explanations about this symbol, because most of them have been signaled already in this and other topics. By the way, I would like to point out verse 8 of the first chapter of Liber AL, in light of these two verses:

AL I:8 – "The Khabs is in the Khu, not the Khu in the Khabs."

If Khabs (the Point) is Hadit, and Khu (the Circle) is Nuit, as it seems to be, it is curious to note two very interesting equivalences:
– Khabs = 49 = Hadit
– Khu = 28, and 2x28 = 56 = Nuit


AL II:55
– "Thou shalt obtain the order & value of the English Alphabet; thou shalt find new symbols to attribute them unto."

Even though, as far as I know, there isn't any direct reference to the Illuminati Cipher in this verse, it should be noticed that this cipher indeed answers this purpose. There is a peculiar order for the letters in the Cipher, according to their value, and also a set of symbols that correspond to the alphabet. However, interestingly enough, "Illuminati Cipher" = 140 = "English Alphabet". Replace "English Alphabet" by "Illuminati Cipher" and the text remains logical!

And here's some other correspondences for the number 140, according to the same cipher: "Harpokrates", "Hoor Pa Kraat", "Love under Will", "To Mega Therion", "Prophet of Had", "Great Old Ones", and finally, "Flying Saucer". Heheh ;)


AL II:75,76
– "Aye! listen to the numbers & the words:"
– "4 6 3 8 A B K 2 4 A L G M O R 3 Y X 24 89 R P S T O V A L. What meaneth this, o prophet? Thou knowest not; nor shalt thou know ever. There cometh one to follow thee: he shall expound it. But remember, o chosen one, to be me; to follow the love of Nu in the star-lit heaven; to look forth upon men, to tell them this glad word."

I've tried to get any kind of clue to solve this riddle by using the Illuminati Cipher but, unfortunately, the result has been completely unsatisfactory. Anyway, if you add the values of the numbers and the words you'll get 383, which is the 76th prime number (the number of the verse in which the riddle appears). Also, half 76 is 38, which resembles the total of the riddle, 383. This is all I've got so far, but I doubt it has any "practical" meaning at all.


– "Abrahadabra; the reward of Ra Hoor Khut."

I know this could be called "cheating", but if you use Ra Hoor Khuit (notice the "i" in Khuit) instead of Ra Hoor Khut, both words share exactly the same value:
"Abrahadabra" = 130 = "Ra Hoor Khuit", and also "Book of the Law".

Using Ra Hoor Khut, it's value becomes 126, which is the same as "Ankh-f-n-Khonsu" (the Scribe of the Stele of Revealing).


– "The other images group around me to support me: let all be worshipped, for they shall cluster to exalt me. I am the visible object of worship; the others are secret; for the Beast & his Bride are they: and for the winners of the Ordeal x. What is this? Thou shalt know."

It is commonly thought that the Ordeal X refers to the experience of Crossing (X) the Abyss, where the Adeptus Exemptus faces the "demon" Choronzon and either is able to "spill every drop of his blood into the Chalice of Babalon" (that is, to overcome dualism and sacrifice one's attachments to fear, desire, hate, indiscriminate love, power, and even all worldly possessions) thus becoming a Master of the Temple, or he fails to do so and becomes a "Black Brother", who acts according to the choronzonic principles of Restriction and Dispersion. In the Tree of Life, the Abyss is represented by Daath, the "non-sephirah" which corresponds to Knowledge.

The Illuminati Cipher sheds some light on this, as "Ordeal X" sums 84, which is the value of "Knowledge" (=Daath).


– "The half of the word of Heru-ra-ha, called Hoor-pa-kraat and Ra-Hoor-Khut."

If we use "H.P.K." for Hoor-pa-Kraat and "R.H.K." for Ra-Hoor-Khut, we'll see that HPK + RHK sums 48, which is *half* the value of "Heru Ra Ha" (96).


– "This book shall be translated into all tongues: but always with the original in the writing of the Beast; for in the chance shape of the letters and their position to one another: in these are mysteries that no Beast shall divine. Let him not seek to try: but one cometh after him, whence I say not, who shall discover the Key of it all. Then this line drawn is a key: then this circle squared in its failure is a key also. And Abrahadabra. It shall be his child & that strangely. Let him not seek after this; for thereby alone can he fall from it."

In order to show what I've discovered through this verse I would like to make some considerations on Ra Hoor Khuit, the Lord of the Aeon, and the symbol of the point within the circle. In this message we've seen that the Point within the Circle clearly is an important symbol in Thelema: it represents the two principles of Nuit (the circle, all-encompassing) and Hadit (the point, "nowhere to be found"), and these are some kind of "patron deities" of the first two chapters of Liber AL. The third chapter clearly has the mark of the Lord of War and of Vengeance, Ra Hoor Khuit, and is represented by the Point within the Circle, an obvious symbol for the Sun which was --and continues to be-- used with the same meaning. We've seen also that the point within the circle is an ancient form of the letters Theta (greek) and Teth (hebrew) and these are very important because they represent:

1) the initial of the words "Thelema" (Will) and "Therion" (Beast), and of several other equally interesting greek words. Also, the value of the name of the letter Theta (Θητα) is 318, the value of Helios (Ήλιος), the Sun, and the Lord of the Aeon (RHK) is, as Crowley calls him, a Solar-Phallic Deity.

2) the mystery of Babalon and the Beast conjoined. This is shown in Atu XI, "Lust", which corresponds to the hebrew letter Teth and depicts the Scarlet Woman holding a Chalice and riding a 7-headed Beast. Also, notice that in this card, the tail of the Beast is in the shape of the gnostic symbol of the Lion-Serpent, or the Demiurge, the Solar-Phallic Force of Creation.

With this said, let us begin to analyze some key words and expressions in the verse:

-> "Then this line drawn is a key:"

In 1989, Gerald Suster explained a very simple way to decode the riddle of AL II:76, by using this little sentence as a clue, and this was published in the journal Nuit-Isis. I would recommend you to read George T. Mortimer's excellent book "The Key Of It All", which is available online, in order to better understand how Gerald Suster's intelligent solution works. Anyway, the most important part of it is that by using the "line drawn" in the manuscript of Liber AL (which goes from the letter C to the line corresponding to 7) and creating a new cipher with it (in which C=7, D=8, ..., V=26, W=1, X=2, etc) the sum of the values of all the numbers and words in AL II:76 is 419, which is the value of the letter Teth written in full (TYTh = 9+10+400 = 419).

-> "then this circle squared in its failure is a key also."

It is a "circle squared in its failure" because it is a circle *almost* squared: the four ends of the “X” aren’t connected to the circumference. If the circle was perfectly squared, it would be similar to the early form of the letters Theta (greek: Θ) and Teth (hebrew: ט), and thus synonymous with the Point within the Circle.

-> "And Abrahadabra."

And Abrahadabra! Very effective clue! In hebrew, the value of Abrahadabra is 418 which is one less --"one to follow thee"!-- than 419 (the value of Teth written in full).


AL III:49,50
– "I am in a secret fourfold word, the blasphemy against all gods of men."
– "Curse them! Curse them! Curse them!"

The secret fourfold word is Θητα, Theta (4-lettered in greek), which is the blasphemy against all gods of men because it represents the Point in the Circle, the Lord of the Aeon, and the Word of the Law ("Thelema", beginning by a greek Theta). Besides, the three sentences in AL III:50 (3x "Curse them!") have a total value of 318, according to the Illuminati Cipher, which is the value of Theta written in full (Θητα), according to the greek isopsephia.

Yesterday’s (June 5th 2009) discovery:

I calculated the total value of the motto of the A.•.A.•., “The method of science, the aim of religion”, and obtained the following result:

“The method of science” = 180
“the aim of religion” = 138

180 plus 138 equals 318, precisely the value of the letter Theta written in full.


These have been the most important discoveries that I've made with the Illuminati Cipher while analyzing some passages of Liber AL vel Legis, but any other major discovery will, of course, be posted online too. In the meantime, any kind of comment, correction or whatever feedback you wish to send, will be most appreciated.


To conclude, here's some other correspondences that I've discovered that are related to Thelema, the mottos in the 1 Dollar bill, secret societies, organizations and people, new age cults, etc:

169 = "Hoor Paar Kraat" = "Annuit Coeptis" = "E Pluribus Unum" = "Eye in the Pyramid" = "Eye in the Triangle" = "Illuminati Bavaria"

"Novus Ordo Seclorum" = 229 = "The Equinox of the Gods"
"Great White Brotherhood" = 252 = "United States of America"

81 = Illuminati = Jah-Bul-On = Mah-Ha-Bone = Sirius
(A.A.S.R. XIII° Masons will find this exceedingly interesting! ;))

-> 229 (the value of "Novus Ordo Seclorum") is the 50th prime number, and 50 is, as you know, connected to the United States. 50 is also the numerical value of the hebrew letter NUN ("fish"), which corresponds to the Tarot Arcanum XIII ("Death") and to the sign of Scorpio. This astrological sign is also called the Serpent, the Eagle or the Phoenix, and these are obvious symbols for the United States.

-> The phrase "In God We Trust" has 12 letters and sums 168. Apparently this is the only sentence which isn't connected to the "pattern 13" present in the Dollar bill. However, if you look at it, you'll see that below this sentence there is the word "ONE" (from "One Dollar"). Adding "ONE" (1) to both 12 [number of letters in "In God We Trust"] and 168 [its value according to the Illuminati Cipher], you'll get 13, and 169 which is 13x13.

H.G.A. = 23 = H.P.K.
(the Holy Guardian Angel is Hoor-Paar-Kraat)

Atenai = 68 = Jehovah = Jesus = Sophia = Lucifer = Beast = Phallos
Atonai = 74 = Yahweh = Yeshu = Madonna = Satan = Horus = Phallus
(Both ATENAI and ATONAI are word plays based on the equivalence between Aten/Aton, the One Solar God of the Amarna period, and Adonai, the hebrew word for "Lord")

Liber Legis = 80 = Therion = Higher Self = Hiram Abiff = Shambhalla

Ashtar = 83 = Apophis = Shaitan = "The Sun"

Ashtar Sheran = 156 = Adam Weishaupt
(those tricky aliens! lol)

Aiwass = 85 = Baphomet = Bafomitr = "Fallen Angel" = "Holy Grail" = Sorath = Arcanum

Big Brother = 112 = All-Seeing Eye = Khabs Am Pekht = Capricorn = Caput Algol

Ankh-f-n-Khonsu = 126 = Ra-Hoor-Khut
Abrahadabra = 130 = Ra-Hoor-Khuit = Book of the Law

"Bavarian Illuminati" = 182 = "Universal Religion" = "World Government" = "Order of B'nai B'rith"

Aleister Crowley = 183 = Argentum Astrum = "As Above, So Below" = Azure-lidded woman
Ala'aster-a-dekerval = 191 = Aleister E. Crowley = Argenteum Astrum = "Number of the Beast"
(The name "Ala'aster-a-dekerval" was taken by me from Liber 231)

L. Ron Hubbard = 131 = Scientology
(L. Ron Hubbard was *the* creator of Scientology!)

"Priest of the Princes" = 219 = "Threefold Book of the Law"

“Great Wild Beast” = 166 = “Stele of Revealing”

"Crowned and Conquering Child" = 277 = "I am alone: there is no God where I am"

93 = “True Will” = “Divine Self” = “Kristos” = “Sun + Moon” = “Circle + Dot” = “Pineal Eye” = “Third Eye”


Feel free to make any comment, or to contact me at baphomet [at] iol [dot] pt
(please include "Illuminati Cipher" in the subject line for better identification).

Best regards,
