Day 365, December 31, 2022


Recommended Posts

Happy New Year!! 2023 is 400 years after the First Folio was published!


365 is the Big O, the snake eating its tail. The end and the beginning, 365 and 0 are the same. January 1 is Day 1, December 30 is Day 364 which makes the 31st, Day 365 and Day 0. No lines in the Sonnets as Day 364 is the final Day of the Sonnets. The "space" between Day 364 and Day 1 is 365, the snake eating its tail.


Grateful Dead lyrics for Terrapin Station a song I love that to me is 365 for sure:

In the shadow of the moon, Terrapin Station
And I know we'll be there soon, Terrapin
I can't figure out, Terrapin
If it's the end or beginning, Terrapin
But the train's put it's brakes on, Terrapin
And the whistle is screaming, Terrapin

Easy way for me is to repost something from Line 365...

Day 365 pondering as we shift from 22 to 23:

Hard to do esoteric research on number 365 without ABRAXAS coming up. Several quotes have caught my eye, but Manly P. Hall touches on a few points that interest me. You may enjoy some food for thought regarding what Yann and I do with numbers. 😉


Pages 195 (69) - 197 (70):

Pythagorean Mathematics

CONCERNING the secret significance of numbers there has been much speculation. Though many interesting discoveries have been made, it may be safely said that with the death of Pythagoras the great key to this science was lost. For nearly 2500 years philosophers of all nations have attempted to unravel the Pythagorean skein, but apparently none has been successful. Notwithstanding attempts made to obliterate all records of the teachings of Pythagoras, fragments have survived which give clues to some of the simpler parts of his philosophy. The major secrets were never committed to writing, but were communicated orally to a few chosen disciples. These apparently dated not divulge their secrets to the profane, the result being that when death sealed their lips the arcana died with diem.

Certain of the secret schools in the world today are perpetuations of the ancient Mysteries, and although it is quite possible that they may possess some of the original numerical formulæ, there is no evidence of it in the voluminous writings which have issued from these groups during the last five hundred years. These writings, while frequently discussing Pythagoras, show no indication of a more complete knowledge of his intricate doctrines than the post-Pythagorean Greek speculators had, who talked much, wrote little, knew less, and concealed their ignorance under a series of mysterious hints and promises. Here and there among the literary products of early writers are found enigmatic statements which they made no effort: to interpret. The following example is quoted from Plutarch:

"The Pythagoreans indeed go farther than this, and honour even numbers and geometrical diagrams with the names and titles of the gods. Thus they call the equilateral triangle head-born Minerva and Tritogenia, because it may be equally divided by three perpendiculars drawn from each of the angles. So the unit they term Apollo, as to the number two they have affixed the name of strife and audaciousness, and to that of three, justice. For, as doing an injury is an extreme on the one side, and suffering one is an extreme on the on the one side, and suffering in the middle between them. In like manner the number thirty-six, their Tetractys, or sacred Quaternion, being composed of the first four odd numbers added to the first four even ones, as is commonly reported, is looked upon by them as the most solemn oath they can take, and called Kosmos." (Isis and Osiris.)

Earlier in the same work, Plutarch also notes: "For as the power of the triangle is expressive of the nature of Pluto, Bacchus, and Mars; and the properties of the square of Rhea, Venus, Ceres, Vesta, and Juno; of the Dodecahedron of Jupiter; so, as we are informed by Eudoxus, is the figure of fifty-six angles expressive of the nature of Typhon." Plutarch did not pretend to explain the inner significance of the symbols, but believed that the relationship which Pythagoras established between the geometrical solids and the gods was the result of images the great sage had seen in the Egyptian temples.

Albert Pike, the great Masonic symbolist, admitted that there were many points concerning which he could secure no reliable information. In his Symbolism, for the 32° and 33°, he wrote: "I do not understand why the 7 should be called Minerva, or the cube, Neptune." Further on he added: "Undoubtedly the names given by the Pythagoreans to the different numbers were themselves enigmatical and symbolic-and there is little doubt that in the time of Plutarch the meanings these names concealed were lost. Pythagoras had succeeded too well in concealing his symbols with a veil that was from the first impenetrable, without his oral explanation * * *."

This uncertainty shared by all true students of the subject proves conclusively that it is unwise to make definite statements founded on the indefinite and fragmentary information available concerning the Pythagorean system of mathematical philosophy. The material which follows represents an effort to collect a few salient points from the scattered records preserved by disciples of Pythagoras and others who have since contacted his philosophy.



The first step in obtaining the numerical value of a word is to resolve it back into its original tongue. Only words of Greek or Hebrew derivation can be successfully analyzed by this method, and all words must be spelled in their most ancient and complete forms. Old Testament words and names, therefore, must be translated back into the early Hebrew characters and New Testament words into the Greek. Two examples will help to clarify this principle.


The Demiurgus of the Jews is called in English Jehovah, but when seeking the numerical value of the name Jehovah it is necessary to resolve the name into its Hebrew letters. It becomes ••••, and is read from right to left. The Hebrew letters are: •, He; •, Vau; •, He; •, Yod; and when reversed into the English order from left to right read: Yod-He-Vau-He. By consulting the foregoing table of letter values, it is found that the four characters of this sacred name have the following numerical significance: Yod equals 10. He equals 5, Vau equals 6, and the second He equals 5. Therefore,  10+5+6+5=26, a synonym of Jehovah. If the English letters were used, the answer obviously would not be correct.

The second example is the mysterious Gnostic pantheos Abraxas. For this name the Greek table is used. Abraxas in Greek is •βραξας. Α = 1, β = 2, ρ = 100, α = 1, ξ =60, α = 1, ς = 200, the sum being 365, the number of days in the year. This number furnishes the key to the mystery of Abraxas, who is symbolic of the 365 Æons, or Spirits of the Days, gathered together in one composite personality. Abraxas is symbolic of five creatures, and as the circle of the year actually consists of 360 degrees, each of the emanating deities is one-fifth of this power, or 72, one of the most sacred numbers in the Old Testament of the Jews and in their Qabbalistic system. This same method is used in finding the numerical value of the names of the gods and goddesses of the Greeks and Jews.

All higher numbers can be reduced to one of the original ten numerals, and the 10 itself to 1. Therefore, all groups of numbers resulting from the translation of names of deities into their numerical equivalents have a basis in one of the first ten numbers. By this system, in which the digits are added together, 666 becomes 6+6+6 or 18, and this, in turn, becomes 1+8 or 9. According to Revelation, 144,000 are to be saved. This number becomes 1+4+4+0+0+0, which equals 9, thus proving that both the Beast of Babylon and the number of the saved refer to man himself, whose symbol is the number 9. This system can be used successfully with both Greek and Hebrew letter values.


The original Pythagorean system of numerical philosophy contains nothing to justify the practice now in vogue of changing the given name or surname in the hope of improving the temperament or financial condition by altering the name vibrations.

There is also a system of calculation in vogue for the English language, but its accuracy is a matter of legitimate dispute. It is comparatively modern and has no relationship either to the Hebrew Qabbalistic system or to the Greek procedure. The claim made by some that it is Pythagorean is not supported by any tangible evidence, and there are many reasons why such a contention is untenable. The fact that Pythagoras used 10 as the basis of calculation, while this system uses 9--an imperfect number--is in itself almost conclusive. Furthermore, the arrangement of the Greek and Hebrew letters does not agree closely enough with the English to permit the application of the number sequences of one language to the number sequences of the others. Further experimentation with



From Higgins' Celtic Druids.


1 Names of the Hebrew letters.
2 Samaritan Letters.
3 Hebrew and Chaldean letters.
4 Numerical equivalents of the letters.
5 Capital and small Greek letters.
6 The letters marked with asterisks are those brought to Greece from Phœnicia by Cadmus.
7 Name of the Greek letters.
8 Nearest English equivalents to the Hebrew, Greek, and Samaritan Letters.

NOTE. When used at the end of a word, the Hebrew Tau has the numerical value 440, Caph 500, Mem 600, Nun 700, Pe 800, Tzadi 900. A dotted Alpha and a dashed Aleph have the value of 1,000.

The system may prove profitable, but it is without basis in antiquity. The arrangement of the letters and numbers is as follows:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

The letters under each of the numbers have the value of the figure at: the top of the column. Thus, in the word man, M = 4, A = 1, N = 5: a total of 10. The values of the numbers are practically the same as those given by the Pythagorean system.

Here's a quickie I did want to share:

Abraxas (Abrasax, Abraxis)


Abraxas (Abrasax, Abraxis) is the gnostic name for the demigod who rules the 365th (highest and final) aeon, or sphere, ascending to the unknowable God. Christian Demonologists put Abraxas in the ranks of Demons.

Abraxas also was the name of a sun mounting an ouroboros (a snake biting its tail) held by the highest Egyptian goddess, Isis, the creator of the Sun and mistress of all the gods. Isis mythology found its way into Gnosticism. In addition, Abraxas was associated with the Mithraic mystery religion of Persian origin, the chief rival of Christianity in Rome in its first 400 years. As did Gnosticism, Mithraism featured a complex astrology and numerology. Numerical values of Mithra’s and Abraxas’ names each total 365.

The number 26 is bouncing around in my cluttered brain. There is a reason why I'll try to explain. Manly P. Hall mentions,

"Therefore,  10+5+6+5=26, a synonym of Jehovah."

The Sonnets Pyramid has 14 Tiers of 26 Days. 14x26 is 364. Day 365 is kind of in between, which is a different topic.

But the number 26 has always intrigued me. Of course we have 26 letters in our Alphabet, and when the Sonnets were printed in 1609 there were 26 letters in print, but everything was still mostly based on the 24 letter alphabet. I never even considered that Bacon and Dee "invented" this table, I assume Dee come across it in his travels. I can picture Dee discussing numbers with the few on Earth who knew about them. Maybe Dee had learned almost every Secret available in his lifetime. The 14 x 26 table being one of them, so secret that it only appears with Shakespeares Sonnets.


It is important to accept this table goes back to long before the letters "J" and "U" were added. The number 26 is Key.

We know the Kaye cipher is in this table, but only goes to Z.

A is 1 Simple cipher, you add 26 to get the Kaye cipher, 27. That is how you do it on your head, you take the number of letters before K and multiply by 26. Once you remember all the numbers in the "Z row" (see above) you just add the number to the Simple cipher that matches how many letter you need to work with; 26, 52, 78, 104, 130, 156, 182, 206, so on up to 364. Simple cipher math. 😉

It's a very perfect design with incredible relationships. But the 365 is not in the table. It is the snake eating its tail, no end or beginning.

Read this:

ABRAXAS or ABRASAX ('Aβράξας, oftener 'Aβρασάξ):

A term of Gnostic magic, of uncertain etymology. According to Irenæus ("Adversus Hæreses," i. 24, 3-7), the Gnostic Basilides (died about 130) gave the name of Abraxas to the highest Being, who presides over the 364 kingdoms of spirits (52 x 7 = 364), because the numerical value of the letters of this name is equivalent to 365 (a = 1, b = 2, r = 100, a =1, x = 60, a = 1, s = 200)—i.e., the 364 spirits + the Highest Being Himself. In a magic papyrus it is expressly stated that Abraxas is equivalent to 365, the number of days in the year (Wessely, "Neue Zauberpapyri," p. 56; Dieterich, "Abraxas," p. 46).

Interesting article by Michael Taylor:

Master of the Rose New Chapters


Here is a snippet:


Jung identifies a three stage development in the human perception of God. The first stage is where God appears as one Supreme Being. The second stage is the perception of a benevolent sun-God (also known as Apollo, which Francis Bacon was known as in his lifetime) and the Devil. They are separated to the point where the Devil is finally banished by God. The final stage is the integration of the Sun-God and the Devil, and coming to consciousness of the purveyor of the highest God Abraxas and its quality – ultimate effectiveness.

The Seven Sermons, as quoted above, state that Abraxas is also known by another name – Pan. The word Pan means “All or “Universal”, a name aptly suited to the Creator of all. The centre of Pan’s worship is traditionally the land of Arcadia – where path to perfection takes place. The brotherhood of souls who, knowingly or unknowingly put into operation the plan for the uplifting of human consciousness, used to be known as the Brotherhood of Pan. Bacon pointed this out in his own writings. From Bacon’s time this brotherhood has been known as the Brotherhood of the Rose Cross, or Rosicrucians.

That Francis Bacon knew the ultimate quality of Abraxas/Pan is demonstrated in Novum Organum:
“Human knowledge and power coincide, because ignorance of the cause hinders the production of the effect. For Nature is not conquered save by obedience : and what in contemplation stands as a cause, the same in operation stands as a rule.” [Novum Organum, I. Aph. 3]

In other words, understanding of the causes of effects, brings one closer to ultimate understanding – symbolized by Abraxas. It is Abraxas who CAUSED the creation of the universe and all its qualities and principles (the first, greatest effect, an act of ultimate effectiveness). Understanding of ALL the causes of all effects of everything that has ever happened, is the ultimate goal of proper science, science that includes all realms both spiritual and temporal. This is also the goal of the Master in all his incarnations, including that of Francis Bacon.
