Hadit, Nu, and Therion
"In the sphere I (Hadit) am the centre, as SHE (Nu, being the "Six and Fifty", = "V-N", numerical value 56)), the circumference, is nowhere found. Yet she (Nu) shall be known, and I (Hadit, "T-Y-D-H", numerical value 28) never."
The mystical number "56" is of exceptional consequence as it relates to Torah and the number of possible powers in the cosmos. There are 7 Planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn) with 4 Elements (Fire, Earth, Air, and Water) with 2 Tendencies (Masculine and Feminine. Likewise, there are 56 Minor Arcana representing these 56 separate and distinct powers. Only 26 of these cosmic powers occur naturally, whereby we have the Tetragrammaton = 26 ! The "House" (Hebrew Letter "Beit" means "House" with a numerical value of 2) of "[the Tetragrammaton)" (i..e, "The House of the ""), is equivalent to "Hadit" Himself. In Liber Al 2:2, Hadit tells us that "Khabs is the name of MY HOUSE", with "Khabs" being equivalent to 322 ("Sh-B-Kh") whereby the "Door" ("Daleth", nv4) yields an equivalence to the 326 numerical value of the Pentagrammaton ("YeHeShUaH") who is at the "Door to the House of Hadit", as he said, "Behold I stand at the door and knock".
There is a method of explaning (Liber Al 2:3) "In the Sphere I am everywhere the centre as she, the circumference is nowhere found." The concept is known Mathematically as a 4 Dimensional Manifold which implies a physical correlation to "time" itself. Any object constructed in such a manner, theoretically speaking, would exist "outside" of our normal perception of the "flow of time". Hadit states (Liber Al 2:5) "the rituals of the OLD TIME are back", in reference to the time of the Old Ones, the Time LONG BEFORE even the Flood of Noah, from a Time which was considedred "Antient" even by those living during own Noah's time (Gen 6:4, JPS) "The Nephillim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the SONS OF GOD came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children by them; the same were the mighty men that were OF OLD, the MEN OF RENOWN." These "OLD ONES' were they whom destroyed the world in Genesis 1:2 (JPS), "Now the earth was unformed and VOID, and DARKNESS was UPON THE FACE OF THE DEEP..." The Hebrew literally reads "DESTROYED" ("VOID"). (Revelation 12:7 RSV), "Now war arose in HEAVEN, Michael and his angels fghting against the DRAGON; and the DRAGON and his angel fought, but they were defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in HEAVEN. And the GREAT DRAGON was thrown down, that ANCIENT SERPENT, who is called the DEVIL and SATAN." This Primordial WAR between Michael and this "SATAN" resulted in the initial DESTRUCTION of the WORLD. They were, are, and will always be known as the "OLD ONES", and their place was the place of "DESTRUCTION"---the "VOID" itself----The ABYSS ! The leader over them was none other than this "GREAT ADVERSARY" (i..e, "N-T-Sh", numerical value 359). Crowley identifies this "GREAT ADVERSARY" (ie., this "SaTaN") as "THERION"!
