Therefore I withdraw myself. (Thus far the vision upon Da'leh Addin, a mountain in the desert near Bou-Sâada.)
December 3, 2.50-3.15 p.m.
December 3, 1909. 9.50 - 11.15 p.m.
 UTI = Capricorn, Caput Draconis, Sagittarius = עגס = 133 = ים המלח = The Salt Sea. (Binah.) Again T is referred to Caput, whereas in other places it is referred to Leo. See Table, 15th Aethyr, Note 8. There is a paradox of attributions here that is yet to be resolved.
 The Bull was probably seen in mistake for a Stag. Then U = ע = the goat. T = Caput Draconis = the Dragon. I = Sagittarius, the Stag.
 This is Saturn. He is conceived as a dragon, Theli. He is referred to Binah.
 The Sphinx is one of the four elements referred to the path of Tau = Saturn. The Python is the great snake that surrounds and devours the Universe. This is his victory; glory is a function of the manifested existence of the Sphinx. (See Liber LXV for further reference to the snake.)
 On the Middle Pillar: Kether, Daath, Tiphareth, Yesod. Thus the spine of existence itself is destroyed in this initiation.
 An injunction of Zoroaster. It is useless to seek the soul of things beneath their surface; for their surface is their soul!
 To accomplish the Great Work in Tiphareth, one must be an initiate of Binah, its mother.
 He is about to destroy. (See the grade signs comprising LVX of the 5° = 6□ grade.)
 There was also an instruction to build a Temple of stone with altar and circle. There was a public sacrifice offered to the God Pan by the Rite of XI° O.T.O. See Equinox X, pp. 114-115. (The XI° was one of Crowley's additions to the traditional German O.T.O. rites, and pertains to the practice of homosexuality which, in spite of himself (see The Law Is For All, his commentary on Liber Legis), he constantly sought to glorify and excuse at the same time. Nonetheless, it must be reiterated that Crowley's concept of the fully attained adept was that he was epicene.)
 This is the absolute negation of light, which is Binah, for she absorbs it perfectly.
 Akasa, the Tatva (element) of Spirit is a black egg, symbolically. It is the darkness in which all things are conceived.
 The fifty gates of Binah have been variously explained. They do not appear to be of any great importance; it is only their number which is significant. The reference is to נ = 50 = Scorpio = Atu XIII — Death.
 Reference to previous ceremonies of initiation.
 N.O.X. (נעץ) represented by the symbol — ⊗ = 210.
 It is also a Phallus, which dies itself to communicate life to others.
 I suppose that only a Magus could have heard this word. (It seems to be "Inertia" or some equivalent. It is the reverse of the three Binah qualities to balance them — speech, and motion, and light.)
 70 / 333 = .210. The process of reducing the dyad to zero, which at once becomes again the dyad, is recurrent; the cycle of existence and non-existence.
 Different Masters of the Temple may be cast out into different spheres.
 The Sankharas — the constituent elements — of the man that has become a Master of the Temple, are reconstituted below the Abyss, so that they can function as an Exempt Adept. But their permanent function is in that grade to which their "centre of gravity" (so to speak) tends.
 50 = Scorpio = נ.
 Spelled in full, the letter Nun becomes the word נון = 106.
 These seasons (in the case of the Seer) to be proved lunar months.
