The fifth point, which relates to the IALPIRGAH "flames of first
glory" in call 7, is Haditian, the root of consciousness. The first
point, corresponding to call 3, relates especially to the lower set
of twelve seats mentioned there which are the zodiac. The zodiac seems
to correspond to the turning from the astral to mental planes in the
Enochian system and seems to be a major barrier. In contrast, the turning
from the mental to the causal, where the Abyss is usually placed, seems
to be incidental. There are two copies of the zodiac involved, one at
the outside of the veil over the Earth and equivalently outside the
aethers, the other between the aethers LIN and TOR. These seem to relate
to the distinction between the tropical and sidereal zodiacs. Inside
the inner zodiac, the sidereal zodiac which runs Aries-Pisces holds
sway. Between the two zodiacs, the tropical zodiac which runs Pisces-Aries
Outside the outer zodiac, there is just the direct influence of the
stars and planets. The aethers are apparently incidental and perhaps
identical with the veil over the Earth. Their geography is apparently
simple, with TEX nearest the Earth and the rest running outward in order.
The geography of the beings connected with the angles in the calls
is more complex. The second set of twelve seats mentioned in call 3
is the outer zodiac, and the function of the call is to admit things
through the veil. The PD and AF
mentioned in calls 4 and 5 start outside and come through. The EM
and NI mentioned in calls 6 and 7, by contrast,
live on the ground to begin with. This may say something about the relationship
between the veil and the planes. Anyway, the numbers 456 and higher
appearing in the original calls relate to the zodiac, 1=Pisces,
so that, for example, 456 can be interpretted Sagittarius-Scorpio-Libra.
Rowe's Zodiacal Round draws on this take on the zodiac.
Directions Mentioned in the Calls
The directions mentioned in the calls follow two patterns. The higher
one can be related to aethers 11-22 in groups of three and to the corresponding
OP spirits. These run East 11-13, South 14-16, West 17-19, North 20-22.
This gives a correspondence between North and the second angle (see
table above), explaining why the speaker of call 4 sets his feet in
the South (looking North). The second pattern relates to the continents
of the Tablet of God, with East 1st continent, South 2nd continent,
North 3rd continent, West 4th continent. It should be noted that these
correspondences are probably not primary but are the best currently
available. The directions mentioned in calls 7-10 follow the first pattern.
The OX of call 8 have four groups fitting
with the directions South, West, North of the first pattern and lastly
East combining the two. The directions mentioned in calls 11-13 fit
the second pattern.
The Celestial, Human, and Earthly realms
Also significant is the division of the world into celestial, human,
and earthly realms. This constitutes an independent dimension relative
to the angles. Related to this is the four-fold division found in the
NI and OX of receptive
celestial beings, implementers of the first group who span the three
realms, independent agents moved by these who also span the three realms,
and earthly implementers of these agents' will. This division is found
in the watchtower hierarchy in the form of the banner-names, the seniors
and kings, the kerubic angels and 6-letter names, and the 5-letter names
and serviant angels and squares. The EM and
VX live in the three spaces between the four
The Numbers Appearing in the Calls
The numbers appearing in the calls have a variety of natures. The numbers
5 and those from 8-33 are numbers of members of groups, with the word
being the name of the group. The numbers 456+, excluding 1000, refer
to groups characterized by the sequences of digits, which refer to combinations
of the nine EM spirits and the signs of the zodiac, with the words
being the names of the groups. Viu=2, norz=6, and motb=1000 seem to
be the names of these numbers simply as numbers. The angles mentioned
in calls 4-7, and the associated phrases "as the first and second"
etc., are numbered L=1, Viu=2, D=3, S/ES=4. The letter U/V is associated
with the second angle, and the letter I fits with 5th point both by
nature and as the first letter of IALPIRGAH. Additionally, the number
6 is associated with the return to the manifest, this going with the
letter N as the first letter of NI and norz. This relates to the system
of gematria I have received. Also, the flames in calls 15-17 are
numbered L=1, Viu=2, D=3, and mention is made of Viu L, second of the
first, in call 2, and L/EL the first in calls 2 and 6. These relate
to the AMSU formula, with the second relating
to S or Z and the last to O. Viu is written out in the calls because
two letters correspond to 2 in the different contexts.
Beings Invoked by the Calls
There is no I Ged material for the first two calls, and it seems that
they are meant to be used with the watchtower hierarchy.
Call 1 invokes the authority of Iad Balt who coordinates the activity
of the watchtower angels for the Enochian God. It is directly addressed
to the watchtower angels.
Call 2 invokes Viu L, second of the first, who has a structuring, materially
oriented nature, and his relationship to IAIDON,
the all-powerful. Not much is known about either.
Calls 3-7 proceed through the five points listed above.
Call 3 invokes 24 seats, 12 higher ones,
divided into six seats of living breath and six that are sharp sickles
or the horns of death, and 12 lower ones that are the outer zodiac in
the order Pisces-Aries as above. The first 12 seats form an opening
through the veil through which things may enter. The CLA
is an energy inside the zodiac which implements the will sent from the
Call 4 invokes the PD who need to descend
from their home outside the veil in order to create an environment recepive
to the AF's introduction. They are assisted in this by the MAPM
Call 5 invokes the mighty sounds in the
shape of olives. The brightness of the heavens
then lay the foundation for the AF pillars
through the space defined, and the AF carry the influence of a distant
system to aid the Earth. The PEOAL
assist in bringing through and integrating influences from outside.
Call 6 invokes the EM and their servants
below, the ACAM.
Call 7 invokes the IALPIRGAH, flames of first glory, which give rise
to the NI who set the pattern for coming back
Call 8 invokes the OX who form connections
between the points and then pillars below reflecting them and letting
their influence flow down. The pillars connect the point of working
with the opposite point on the Earth in five groups, four forming great
circles over the surface starting in the cardinal directions and one
going straight down. Then are mentioned the Dragon,
who consists of the perishable material of which the Earth is made,
and IADOIASMOMAR, Him that Is and Was and Shall Be Crowned, whose nature
Call 9 invokes the mighty guard of fire,
his instruments the P vials of wrath, and
his ministers the CIAL. The P are used to
break things apart. The CIAL then gather "the moss of the Earth"
from the disorder. They work through the OX pillars and reach from the
first set of attributes given for the directions into the second to
do their gathering. Also mentioned is IADBALTOH who seems to supervise
Call 10 invokes the oak formed by the OP
and connected spirits. The roots of the oak follow the four surface
groups of OX pillars. The trunk reaches from the ground to the region
between the zodiacs where the branches, the OP, form a cube. The DAOX
act as a filter along the roots and trunk, bringing through the things
gathered by the CIAL into the branched. When a process of gathering
is done, the connecting OL names make an avenue
for the finished product to return to the surface.
Call 11 features a choice between leaving the planet or attatching
oneself to Her, with the O either connecting
one to the Eagle so that one may leave or attatching
one to the Earth through the GA, which act
as a sort of elevator to the center of the Earth and the Worldsoul.
Call 12 invoked the OB, who are used to go
outside the Earth's gravity and travel to other places. This is how
those who choose the Eagle leave. The MIAN
provide a connection with the Earth.
Call 13 invokes the swords of the south and
their eyes VX.
Call 14 invokes 24 seats the OL who correspond
to and unite the two zodiacs, as well and the
sons of fury and daughters of the just who occupy the seats and
the QUAR who serve them. This call begins
a cycle completed with the first two aether calls.
Calls 15-18 invoke the four flames and related
characters whose purpose is to bridge the veil over the world, with
the boundary between RII and TEX being the main point of interaction.
Call 15 features the First Flame who moves
between the outer zodiac and LIL through to RII, as well as the DARG
who create a column from his region to the ground.
Call 16 features the Second Flame who moves
between TEX and the ground and who describes himself as the slave of
the First, plus the EMOD, who serve him
by connecting the space within the column to the Tablet
of God, and MADZILODARP, God of Stretch Forth and Conquer.
Call 17 features the Third Flame who moves
between the lower boundary of LIN and the inner zodiac through to the
lower boundary of TEX. He describes himself as the servant of the First.
Also featured are the TAXS, who serve him
by creating a space at the base of the DARG cloumn connecting the DARG,
EMOD, ERAN, and Tablet of God, and VONPO-UNPH, Wrath-in-Anger.
Call 18 features OLPIRT, a fourth flame
who is not part of a group with the first three but is made possible
by them, OIAD who is the member of the GA
that creates the connection between the center and surface of the Earth,
and the ERAN who live in the layers of the
Earth between the surface and center and create a shaft connecting them.
This call allows one to reach to the center without the need for the
whole GA structure.
The Call of the Aethers invokes the Parts of Earth in conjunction with
the 30 Aethers. The Parts have said that the Aethers were there first
and they moved in, adding to their original function of regulating life
on Earth. Most of the call seems to make reference to this original
function, which can be reached by using the second call without the
aether call, and features the characters IDOIGO, BABALON, and TELOCVOVIM.
IDOIGO is responsible for coordinating the Parts work in their original
function. BABALON is the body-life of the Earth, cut off from the spirit
which is trapped in the core. Not much is known about TELOCVOVIM.
The Calls as a system of Initiation
The calls are arranged in an order which seems eminently suitable for
initiation, though this doesn't seem to be their primary purpose. Experimenting
with them in order seems wisest to begin with. Aaron
Leitch has proposed attempting to pass through the gates as a method
of initiation. This seems to be a good method of testing whether one
has assimilated their energies, though there doesn't seem to be much
of interest on the other sides.
Parallels to Gnosticism
There are a number of parallels between the calls and Gnosticism, a
possibility first suggested by Aaron Leitch, though the orientations
of Gnosticism and the Enochian system are rather different. The first
10 and next 12 aethers seem to correspond to the 10 and 12 aeons mentioned
in the Apocryphon of John and Iraneus's attack on the Valentians, with
the next 7 corresponding to the 7 heavens. The structure of the angles/points
is seen in Pistis Sophia as is the idea of moving through successive
spaces as an initiation. The parallel with the first eight calls is
quite strong, though only some of the characters in the calls have parallels,
notably the EM and CLA whose parallels show up as the villians. This
is in contrast to the calls, where they are an essential part of the
system. I have been unable to get a straight answer from the angels
about the actual relationship between the Enochian material and the
stuff the Gnostics were working with.
