On the Flames.
The four flames' domains consist of parts
of the Earth and sky, the 1st operating within aethers 1-29, the 2nd
from 30 to the ground, the 3rd from the bottom of 22 to the bottom of
30, the last from the surface of the Earth to its core. They fit in
a four-fold pattern found in various places in the Enochian system,
notably calls 1-4, 8-11, etc. This is associated with the letters of
the name AMSU,
a being with whom Runar has been in contact (see Book
of AMSU). The AMS are follow the assignment of the Hebrew
mother letters S=heaven, M=earth, A=space between, and thus with the
assignment of these letters to the crosspaths of Luria's version of
the Tree. These fit with the numeration S=1, M=2, A=3.
The first reaches from whatever place is higher into whatever place
The second acts on behalf of the first in the lower place.
The third arises between them.
This is also the same as the traditional Father-Mother-Son pattern.
The U of AMSU is then the being encapsulating or made possible by these.
It can be numbered 0, relating to 0 as meaning potential, or 4 by order.
The related Enochian letters seem to be L=1, Z=2, D=3, O=0. The AMSU
pattern appears in other places in the system. One such is the structure
of the olive, and by extension the mighty sounds (see PEOAL). It is
interesting to compare the spaces associated with the letters of AMSU
in relation to the flames and the mighty sounds:
Spaces (numbers refer to aethers):
||surface to core
In each case 23-29 seems to be associated
with the third, though the details vary.
The second flame describes himself as a slave
of the first, the third as a servant of the first. This use of the term
servant and slave incidently gives a possible interpretation of Liber
AL II:58's "the slaves shall serve" as implying a rise in
status from slave to servant through contact with the one they serve.
The first three flames are concerned with energy passing through the
region of the aethers to the ground. The last is concerned with opening
contact between the surface of the Earth and the core, something made
possible by the actions of the first three.
