AL I:28

None, breathed the light, faint & faery, of the stars, and two.

The word “faery” here takes on the definition of “unsubstantial, visionary, unreal”, rather than implying that Nuit is from the land of Faeries.

In the previous verse, the priest has adored Nuit as a being that has no discrete being, describing her as “none” and “continuous”. This is the ultimate state of union with Nuit, where there is no difference between her, yourself and any other thing. In this verse we start to come down from the Samadhi, a subtle, insubstantial light vibrates into speech, once more creating division. Crowley writes about this as the 0=2 formula.
