The Hyperqabalah has its roots in the mysteries of the number 47. These have been given here. This manifestation of the 47 is entirely autonomous to the Pomona appearance and its subsequent Star Trek influence. Herein lie two connecting lines to the number 23, now sacred to Eris. Pomona is the Roman goddess of the orchard and hence of apples, and so the line is drawn. 47 found its way into Star Trek, the Star is Sirius (then this line drawn is a key…).
The Hyperqabalah draws from the 47 and pays homage to the 23 -which is prior. When the Gra-tree of the Qabalah was drawn, it placed the 4 and the 7 in the central column to emphasise their alternating nature as faces of the same thing. When each path was re-sigilised it was allocated a number 1-22.
Because positive integers were used for all paths in single symbols, when the notion to create the Hyperqabalah appeared it necessitated that the base in which it functioned be the one in which there are 22 single symbols for positive integers and that when 0 was added the 23rd became this base’s equivalent of 10.
Hence the base of the Hyperqabalah is base 23. This is not of the strongest necessity, but it is of reasonable necessity whilst it also taps into the historical accretive line of this number. The Hyperqabalah is a synthesis of the 23 and 47 on mathematical and historical accretive axes.
The Hyperqabalah is a snapshot of the reticulum, the a-spatio-temporal light fibres that underpin all the worlds. Hence the number of paths is in some sense arbitrary. In the Qabalah there is a sort of suggested necessity to the shape the Sephiroth form. In the Hyperqabalah there is no such necessity. There is a circuit of nodes, there are the feeder nodes and there are the three master nodes. The connectivity of circuit and feeders to the masters has less suggested necessity than that of the Gra-tree
What is the Hyperqabalah? Quite simply put it is a regular Qabalah whose paths between the Sephiroth have themselves been transformed into Sephiroth (or nodes as they are commonly referred to herein). Different arrangements of paths are then played with.
These are recognised to be totally contingent and thus the chosen model represents and aesthetic and not necessary choice. Of course this can be said to be true of the tree of life itself in either regular or Gra tree form. There is in this instance though something more of the appearance of necessity (especially in the Gra tree used here). The Hyperqabalah has no such appearance of necessity. The chosen nodal arrangement and quantity of paths is deliberate but only represents one small possibility of its unfolding.
In this way the Hyperqabalah works along side another current CEO project. This is that of the ‘reticular ontology’. The reticular ontology posits an a-spatial a-temporal connecting series of fibres that, when viewed by humans look like fibres of light. These run between all accretive nodes, either human formed or otherwise. The Hyperqabalah is a snapshot of the reticulum at different level beyond the archetypes found in the regular Qabalah. The paths in Qabalah can be understood as harmonies between the two Sephiroth. The same is true of the Hyperqabalah yet the concepts here are of necessity more alien and complex.
This call for submissions asks for persons willing to in some way conceptualise one of the paths of the as yet inchoate Hyperqabalah. Such a conceptualisation could be in any medium as the nature of the path will be quite abstract. If you would like to conceptualise a path for the project please contact us at:
For further information on the hyperqabalah you can look at these posts. Understanding the maths is not necessary, though familiarity with the shape itself is.
Anyone who thinks that the full excess of the numogram is a great discovery is kidding themselves. The digital pandemonium, demons, gates, it’s all pure accretive attachment. It is in this sense nothing more than Enochian magick and possibly something less. Of course the statement that it might be equivalent grants it considerable potential power. As an intimately crafted chaos-magickal hyperstitional accretion it is quite amazing. But most of it is just colouring in.
The lines though (that are not colouring in) sometimes don’t get seen in all there glory. It is this (I take to be Landian) discovery that I refer to:
Zero + Nine
One + Eight
Two + Seven
Three + Six
Four + Five
This is it. This is the thing of beauty. All the rest is accreted to it through attractive derivations that emanate from its spell -with the possible exception of the ‘gate of the five angles’ which details how one may add 90+81+72+63+54 to equal 360, thus connecting deep decimalisation to the base 60 of the Babylonians, historically tenuous but nicely done.
I would wager that the discovery of actual lines sent a shockwave through the receiving consciousness that it still does not properly understand. This is because you cannot understand it. Discoveries like this are as disturbing as full blown paranormal encounters. They look preposterous. They fill you with a sense of receiving something special and simultaneously you are aware that they can be simply a massive coincidence that just happened to occur in the structural threshold of language and number.
I have elsewhere labelled this sensation agnostic disjunctive, that is a split that cannot be answered, one can only choose to be an agent for one side -even if one thinks one has simply chosen the obviously true one.
It would be hard to be an agent for the above connection as it is even more insane sounding that 23, 47 or any of those. These at least, whilst they draw examples of power from recurring in various ways are not in the same league as this particular synchronicity. Look at it.
The actual totally contingent words for 0 and 9 have the same number of letters. The opposite of this distal pair also have the same (4 and 5). The middle three each have 3 and 5 letters respectively. All the totals of the letters thus equal 8 and all the pairs of integers equal 9.
What does it mean? Any Wittgensteinian can tell you it doesn’t mean anything. However if they pay attention to the language game they can also concede that it looks like it suggests that it might mean something, and because it is so preposterous it can act as a criterion for grammar than makes it cogent -agnostic disjunction.
Should anyone think that they can dismiss the appearance with simple coincidence they should consider that this appearance is exactly what it would look like it if was a weird transversal hint from dimensional directions considerably alien to our own. They then must consider if they know that this is not the case. When they conclude (as they must) that they know no such thing, they must also concede that since the appearance of the weirdness is epistemically equal to that of the coincidental model they must also give in to (minimally) the agnostic disjunctive level (and maybe consider being and agent for the alternative).
One can repeat the calculation very calmly but the real madness of the thing has to be acutely felt. Here are the English language numbers, a totally contingent system; here is base 10, also totally contingent (digital accretive reasoning accepted but bracketed off as still not rendering it necessary). The number of letters in the pairings makes a kind of pattern that whilst empty is eerily (in Fisher’s sense) is filled with hidden presence. There is no step you can take without descending into insane dogma (like Marko Rodin did with the Bahai faith), so what did Land do? He sidestepped and built a chaos-magickal accretion all over it. This no doubt created a feedback of further synchroncity, however the nub, the core of it is there. That is the motor.
I could be totally off the mark with some of the psychological speculation, but in identifying the only core part that sits there as an actual anomaly of hinted insane communication that cannot be decoded, I do not think I am mistaken at all.
I once encountered one of these myself when in the pre-internet world I was obsessively investigating the number 47 and all things 4 and 7 -itself the product of hints from the other world.
Triangles like the below can show square numbers. The square of the number of units high the triangle is, is the total number of units of the triangle. For instance a triangle 2 units high comprises of 4 units (its square).
I was insanely trying to understand if there was any logic to cross addition and had already worked out that if one squares then cross adds all the decimal numbers one gets either 1 4v7 or 9 i.e.:
1^2=1 2^2=4^2=(16)+=7^2=(49)+=(13)+=4^2 etc 3^2=9^2=(81)+=9 etc 4 see 2 5^2=(25)+=7 see 2 6^2=(36)+=9 see 3 7 see 2 8^2=(64)+=(10)+=1 see 1 9 see 3
What these triangles do is actually give a meaning to squaring and cross addition in some limited circumstances.
For instance if I have a triangle of a height of 4, necessarily it will be comprised of 16 units. The base however will be 7 units(1+6). That is the base actually reveals the cross additional answer.
These are the most concrete examples:
4 becomes 16 becomes 7 (the base units of 4)
7 becomes 49 becomes 13 (the base units of the 7 triangle) becomes 4
With small adjustments, these can also function.
13 becomes 169 becomes (curiously by preserving the first two digits as a whole number) 16+9=25 is the base number.
16 becomes 256 becomes 31 (by the same logic above) which is the base number and also reduces to 4.
22 becomes 484 and a similar logic derives the base. This time we extract 40 and add 8+4=12=3, re-add them and we have 43, the base number.
31 gives us 961, if we cross out the 9 for 9=0 in base 10 cross addition we immediately have the base number again.
After this the signal becomes too hidden. However the first two on their own are quite sufficient. It created a sensation (in me) of crossing over the lines. The (p)numinous sensation is formed by the following string of events:
Being given 47 as number of a ‘spirit’,
Finding a method in a book that said ‘squaring and cross addition reveals numbers higher essence’ (simply naively accepted at the time),
Applying this to the base 10 system and finding the alternating 4v7 therein (this already seemed quite ridiculous),
Recognising base 10 as contingent (1+3 has no intrinsic link to 4) but then finding that a triangle of that kind of units (a fairly uncontroversial triangle) contained traces of the lines of contingency being crossed i.e. the triangle is a necessary invariant system, yet the when side units are squared for 4s and 7s, the base reveals a number related to the cross addition. Because it is seeming true that 49 has no actual link to 13 and 4 (the contingency of the base) why do base 10 manipulations in conjunction with the triangle units create answers commensurate with cross addition?
Surely it shouldn’t happen -but it does.
This may be less impressive than the moment in which the syzygy pairings were disclosed but the agnostic disjunctive feeling would likely be the same. A path was followed and then there was the trace, the signal. Accretions form around the signals. Other powers are immediately attracted. But when we strip them away, the signal is still there, stark and impenetrable as ever.
And they are impenetrable. Keel showed fairly well that the beings out there are either psychic garbage of our own formation or a mixture of entities many of which are highly mendacious or will simply tell us what we want to hear. The appearance (or the consequence of the appearance) of these signals is that reality is alterable from angles we cannot conceive of but also that they may be signals, signals the could be decoded. This of course contradicts my statement of them as impenetrable. I think this is another agnostic disjunctive level. The appearance of the signal (if signal it is) is such that, whilst we can almost certainly not be able to interpret it properly.
Recent work on the hyperqab has revealed a much more suitable shape. The below shape utilises the circuit of numbers d-f-j-s-l-w-u-p-h-n-d as a circle with the feeders connecting in from the outside. Two cones are formed by the circle connecting to a above and m below. Each number from the circuit connects to a and m. In the centre of the circle is absolute 0. All the circuit numbers form extra paths by connecting to 0, a and m also connect to 0 forming a vertical axis to the system. This forms a total of 52 paths in this instantiation of the hyperqab. We must remember that there are in fact 529 virtual paths to the hyperqab and that any instantiation is to some extent arbitrary. However this instantiation reflects the circuit well, whilst the cones form a powerful symbol of the double-world as it appears to us.
The nodes of the hyperqab are the paths of the CEO adjusted qabalah. This is the reason for the name. The whole system is moved up a kind of dimensional level. The 22 paths of the flat tree become paths in a 23 node system utilising base 23. The CEO adjusted the hermetic qabalah by utilising the gra-tree as it fitted with the 47 based circuit in base 10. It then reaccreted the names of the paths and sigilised them. This cannot remove the previous accreted layers however it does make the latest layer take control of the path accretions to some extent. Again, magick is really to root of the accretive term employed as a general philosophy herein. Accretions in this sense are literally conceptual substance stuck together: a symbol, an idea, a number, force them together with the mind until they stick and there you have it, an accretion of pneuma.
To progress we must familiarise ourselves with the nodes of the hyperqab. In doing so we will eventually be in a position to understand the paths of the hyperqab. The table given below shows the accretive layering of the hyperqab nodes as they are rooted in the CEO gra-tree paths.
The original intention of the hyperqabalah was to form a shape that in some sense matched the necessity of the Gra-tree of life qabalah construction. Whilst of course there is no necessity even to such a structure, there is at least the easy suggestion of one. That is, the circuit 2-3-5-9-8-6-2 easily can be laid in two columns, one of 2 5 8 and the other 3 6 9, this leaves an easily inserted middle column of 1 4 7 10 to create the tree.
It was hoped that the unveiling the base 23 circuit would suggest a similar pattern however no such obvious shape shows itself. This issue was forced with the creation of this figure:
This figure can work with the lengthier base 23 circuit and retain numerical order in relation to spatial position however its structure is far less suggested than that of the regular Gra-tree in base 10. Owing to this lack of necessity it was deemed that whilst an interesting instantiation of the Hyperqabalah it could not be the Hyperqabalah itself.
The Hyperqabalah itself in acknowledging of this lack of necessity now takes on a much more virtual aspect. This means the necessity of it can only be perceived in those paths which are genuinely necessary for its existence at all. These are the paths of the circuit d f j s l w u p h n d and the feeder numbers that accompany each one of these. The below diagram shows these feeders as each one plugs into the circuit.
This means that the only actual necessary amount of paths in the Hyperqabalah is 20. In a sense this is not true though since there are two nodes missing (a and m). So unless we wish to say that no path connects to these nodes (which we do not) then there will be at least 22 paths (if we wish them all to join together). Now 22 is course the number of paths in the original Gra-tree. So the essence of the Hyperkab in this sense is just the circuit, the feeders and the two master nodes. If the tree were this minimal though how would we decide to which nodes the master nodes plugged in? Already the suggestion appears that the master nodes may plug into each of the other nodes simultaneously. This notion has a kind of level of suggestive necessity. We may find there are more such levels, however what seems eminently clear is that we have a much greater sense of virtual paths that may be instantiated after the original 20. It is only 20 since any connection to the master nodes is at the level of suggestive necessity and not mathematical necessity.
What we will need next is the total list of virtual paths…
