AL I:1Posted: May 8, 2012
Had! The manifestation of Nuit.
The first verse of the Book.
The big bang. The singular point unmanifest universe and its expansion as the body of stars.
The two principal polar deities are introduced. Compare to II:1.
We have no definition as to their qualities yet.
There are two ways to read this and these two are one:
1. “Had!” the exclamation, “The manifestation of Nuit.” the explanation and definition thereof.
2. “Had!” the point event, “The manifestation of Nuit.” the resultant events.
First is above the abyss, a description from where there is no space/time.
Second is as seen below the abyss, from one subject to space time.
NUIT = Νυιτ = 760 = αφανης, “that is not manifest”
12. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
760 = μυριαδες “double myriad, ten thousand, an indefinite number”
One of Nut’s titles is “She Who Holds a Thousand Souls”.
So we see that the nature of Nuit is both non-manifest and Infinite. It is only through Had! that she may become manifest and discrete.
18. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19. For the earnest expectation of creation waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
Here the word that is translated “manifestation” is “ἀποκάλυψις” which means “an uncovering” or “revelation”. It is used in 1 Corinthians 1:7 “the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ”.
