Crowley Commentary

This analysis may be checked by adding the columns vertically, 69, 81, 93, 114, 135, 246, 357. Dividing by 3 we get 23, 27, 31, 38, 45, 82, 119, which in the Sepher Sephiroth mean respectively Life, Purity, Negation, "38 x 11= 418," Innocent, Formation, Prayer, Weeping. The analogies are obvious.
