The EM names:

PERIAK , PA-I-ON , PERIO
PARAMAON
, PERDOI , PARAMA
PARAZAM
, PARAKETI & PARASEG.


 

On their names:
It must be said that the Fire spirits themselves do alter the spelling of these names, and the most usual difference is the change from Paraketi to Parakati and Paraseg to Paraseje and saji. This I have experienced to emphasize certain aspects of these spirits and I find it goes in accordance with the letteressences of Patricia Shaffer. The word Seg have I always got translated as bad, awful and similar things and I see the main root here is the SG as also is found in the word for Earth; Caosg. Keti, Kati or even Ketil is translated to the Good brother. That means that one can expect some teaching of basic enochian moral from these two. Zam means war or fight, doi-snake, ma-falling, maon - door, but I am not entirely convinced on the latter. The three first have also confused me withe regards on their names meaning, but Pa-i-on is at least a phrase meaning Being is made. It is very obvious that his name does stand out as something different as he has not got any R in his prefix. This I heard very early in the translation work to be caused by that Pa-i-on is not his true name, his true constitution is of an art that cannot get named.
It is also worth noting that the central governor in the Aethyr LIN : Paraoan is a name made in this pattern.

On their structure
In Call 6, the EM are described as "mighty in the firmament of waters". Water here, as well as in Call 5, the ACAM call, the corresponding OX cube, and also in numerous other systems, refers to the turning from the causal to mental plane. In Kabalistic terms this would refer to the region bounded by sephiroth 2-5, the region of Daath. The EM relate to the process of the supernals sending forth Daath as their child and its then influencing the lower sephiroth. This same process is described in the Stanzas of Dzyan (in H.P. Blavatsky's The Secret Doctrine), especially stanza 3.
Here, the "firmament of waters" is referred to by both water symbolism and the symbol of the egg. The divine thought, mahat, corresponds to the supernals.
The first group seem to correspond to active versions of Kether- Chokmah-Binah, more or less, and are the subject of DOzmt. PA-I-ON is the same as the unmanifest version of Fohat in the stanzas, the CLA being the manifest version. PERIO is associated with the opening of passages through the veil over the Earth (see OS and OL). PERIO is responsible for overseeing the lower six EM.
The second group is responsible for Daath as child of the supernals. PARAMAON is responsible for the formation of this out of the supernals. PERDOI, who is the same as OEAOHOO the Younger, the Blazing Dragon of Wisdom of stanza III:7, translates what is projected from above into energies capable of acting below. PARAMA is responsible for these being implemented and oversees the lower three EM.
The third group is responsible for implementing these energies. PARAZAM chooses whether they will be implemented by PARAKETI or PARASEG. PARAKETI implements things in a balanced way, PARASEG is a destructive way. The three groups are able to function in the spaces between the groups of NI; PERIAK, PA-I-ON, and PERIO being between the first and second groups with PERIAK closer to the first and PERIO closer to the second; the second group of EM between the second and third NI groups similarly; and the third group of EM between the third and fourth NI groups similarly.

Analysis of the names by Patricia and Dean.

Eight of the EM names begin with either PER or PARA, both roots related to the word for fire. PER can be read as "establish willful motion", PARA as a combination of PAR, the word for "in them", as "to fix or establish to remain that motivation" and ARA as "the source-waves of beginning arising from the Root of Motion", giving the idea of establishing a motivation which is the source of beginnings. The beings whose names start with PER seem to act directly, whereas the ones whose names start with PARA seem to inspire others to action


.

PERIAK:
to establish willful or intentional motion to energize the beginning of creation; to set into purposeful motion the energy to begin causing or creating; to establish deliberate or intentional change in energies is the beginning of creation; to set purposeful motivational energies as the beginning of causation.

Pe = the Angelic title for the letter transliterated as the English "B" (Choice): to establish (in all dimensions of space and time) the will; to establish or set [for a] purpose; to set or place willfully or intentionally; to establish by will, or willfully, deliberately. + (er) = to will to move or change; willing or willful movement; the will to move or change; the purpose of movement, differences; for the purpose of change; the purpose of emotions; willful or deliberate motion or change, the will in motion; ® (per) = to establish willful or intentional motion; to set into purposeful motion; to establish deliberate change; to establish [place or set ][for] the purpose [of, for, or by] emotions; + (ri) = movement is; to move, change or be motivated by energy; to be emotionally energized or enabled; changeability, variety, ® (eri) = to will or intend to motivate ability; purposeful motivational energy; to intentionally change the energy [of]; + (ia) = the energy source; energy "is" the origin or source, energy is the beginning, the enabler of beginnings; able to begin, the energy or ability to begin: can begin; "is" enabled or energized at or from the beginning; to energize or enable a beginning; able to refresh or renew; ® (ria) = to move or motivate the energy or ability to begin or be renewed; to change the energy of beginning; to motivate or change the ability begun; the emotional or motivational energy to begin; + (ac) = the source or original cause; to begin to make or cause; to begin because; ® (iac) = to energize the beginning of creation; the energy to begin causing or creating.


PA-I-ON:
This name is read as three words, PA establishing a source, I pure energy, and ON becoming self or becoming within. These relate respectively to PA-I-ON combined with PERIAK, PA-I-ON in himself, and PA-I-ON combined with PERIO. The ON is related to the ON in PARAMAON and is best read as becoming self here but as becoming within (the waters) in PARAMAON because PA-I-ON functions within the realm of divine thought and PARAMAON within the waters.

PERIO:
to establish deliberate or purposeful motion to energize being and enable becoming.

Pe = the Angelic title for the letter transliterated as the English "B" (Choice): to establish (in all dimensions of space and time) the will; to establish or set [for a] purpose; to set or place willfully or intentionally; to establish by will, or willfully, deliberately. + (er) = to will to move or change; willing or willful movement; the will to move or change; the purpose of movement, differences; for the purpose of change; the purpose of emotions; willful or deliberate motion or change, the will in motion; + (per) = to establish ["by choice" is implied by Pe] willful or intentional motion; to set into purposeful motion; to establish deliberate change; to establish [place or set ][for] the purpose [of, for, or by] motivation [e.g., via emotions]; + (ri) = movement is; to move, change or be motivated by energy; to be emotionally energized or enabled; changeability, variety; + (eri) = to will or intend to motivate ability; purposeful motivational energy; to intentionally change the energy [of]; + (io) = the energy of being; to energize or enable to become; the ability to become; [whatever] "is" able to become (or evolve); + (rio) = to move or change the ability of being-becoming; the motivational energy of [a] being; what moves or motivates enables to become; variability or changeability of being[s]-becoming;
