For those who may have been having fun repeating this to themselves (the original is in an earlier thread), I offer an update and the eleven lines complete.

I should mention, for those who may be interested, I'm diving in again on translation and other things and having fun working out my Thelema/Vulcan-Voluntarianism hybrid -- for good or ill. A side note: Though I possessed an early interest in alchemy, I only recently realized, as far as I can recall, that Vulcan (the Greek god) is himself the God of the Alchemists! (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vulcan_of_the_alchemist s"> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vulcan_of_the_alchemists ). I know he seems the obvious candidate for that position, but I never went that direction (into physical or chemical alchemy, specifically). I came through my conception of Spock, oddly enough, and now the circle is complete (of course, much of this understanding must have been beneath the surface).
At least now I can always fall back on the god Vulcan if the folks at Star Trek decide to squash me like a bug.
Any thoughts anybody might have on my foolish and fun quest, I'd be glad to hear them. I'm kind of stuck with this. I've heard it suggested that, in magick, one should try to work with the religion one knows. I've always had Spock (and Star Trek in general), which hit me at just the right tender age.
What exactly is T'Khasi?
Oh, I took the liberty of imaging that the Dunap T'To-Gav (Book of the Law) came from Vulcan, so I didn't stick with the expected proper names...
T'Khasi is what the Vulcans call their planet -- Oahksu-pidsu T'Khasi means (honored - "O-") warrior lord of Vulcan.
Opidsu t'Ralash-Fam'es means (honored - "O-") Lord of Silence
I also snuck Spock (Spohkh) in there as a replacement for Aiwass -- bad me.
(P.S. Pardon, from above -- Vulcan, Roman god or the Greek Hephaestus).
Ee lad, tha means t'Vulcans live in t'Khasi?
Well, my Vulcans live somewhere else 😉 , but close enough.
The mysteries which were delivered by the cabiri, cabir, cabari, kabiri, kabeiroi, and kebeiroi, all allude to 'Vulcan' and were exoterically symbolised with 'fire' in the mysteries. The cult of Samothrace is very ancient indeed, extending thousands of years B.C., well into Phrygian and Indo-Aryan territory. These sacred rites were fundamentally alchemical in nature. Outwardly, all forms of metallurgical operations involving fire, were gross concealments of the occult psycho-sensual experience of the firesnake. Thus, the hierophants would shine with an electro-magnetic radiance. Their eyes would blaze and experience deep trances etc. The use of 'fire' esoterically, was synonymous with the thunderbolt, the qabalistic mezla, or 'starfire', an oneiric cosmic radiation of stellar consciousness which bathed the initiate (dioskouri) in a sea of oracular gnosis.
When the adept is ready...the stars will rain down revealing a shining epiphany...
Keep up the Great Work
Ok, this is really effing sad. How about one of these updated for us modern BS fans, in Cylon? I know you're up to it.
What's a BS fan in Cylon?
Battlestar Galactica, the new, War On Terror version. It's about as relevant to Liber Al as this Star Trek rubbish.
Yay, magispiegel! I love it! S.T. Vulcan is a veil for that other Vulcan and his "planet' a largely black-hole of history and philosophy into which I can pour my imagination. Beautiful words you gave.
BlueKephra, relax, let it flow over you, the Spock awaits! (or perhaps you are not familiar with the concept of a god-form -- garments, my man). Besides, he actually kind of looks like him, in my estimation.
Vampire, Demon, Elf, Dragon, Magician -- I collapse them into one and call it Vulcan (and add a hidden meaning for spice). Shorthand. Terminology.
If the fear is that Spock is just a logic machine (like a Cylon), then that is the joke that I play upon myself -- the Method of Science, but, largely unseen: the Aim of Religion! (there's certainly enough to support it -- ritual (highly illogical), allusions to Vulcan gods; do you imagine, for example, that the concept of a Vulcan mind-meld or will-at-a-distance is something born of merely a logical mind?).
Why can't I play with the myths of today?
McCoy - To Know
Scott - To Will
Kirk - To Dare
Spock - To Keep Silent
No room for contemplation or magick therein?
Did you know that the Vulcan hand-sign is the sign for SHIN?
But don't worry about me; this is just one aspect of myself. I can change my terminology at will. But, as I mentioned, Star Trek is in the "Bones."
Here's an interesting something I came across --
Wish I could find something else I came across about Star Trek and Arthurian myth, but you get the point -- Spock/Merlin, Kirk/Arthur. These archetypes come from somewhere.
Thanks for triggering my pleasurable rant.
Gotta share this one.
Consider the Vulcan IDIC symbol above, the symbol of the Vulcan "religion."
IDIC stands for Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations.
Consider ISIS - "Infinite Space, and the Infinite Stars thereof" -- from Liber AL.
Infinite Diversity = Infinite Stars?
Infinite Space = Infinite Combinations?
Close enough to be awfully suggestive, I'd say.
Witness also the "arms of Nu" encircling the image of "Had."
Here's another fun one, Spock's Starfleet serial number --
I'd have to get into EQ to analyze the 179, but it was a blast finding the 276 there.
