There are certain topics that I have decided to only post on the Order Of Necronomicon Forums Page, and this will be the first in a series of topics.


I had the pleasure of talking with Brother Ashnook last nite. We were able to relate some of our recent findings concerning the GateWalking Process. Recently, I had the honor of Walking the Anu Gate. It gave me more insight into the Necronomicon System, as every Gate does.  I am sure that those who have been working with the book for some time will agree with me when I say that every time you open up the book, you always discover something new. There has definitely been a lot of information that has come to light even though I have been in the Anu Gate for only less than a week. I had previously noticed that after I walked the Seven Initiatory Gates, the Gates that followed (NINHURSAG, ENKI, ENLIL, AND ANU) began to effect me immediately. I realized that some of the things I discovered on my blog page were indeed correct, but before I continue let us review some of the information that we have previously discussed.


After Walking the Seven Initiatory Gates for the first time, I decided that I would follow the pattern of Walking given in the MAGAN Text. The MAGAN Text is probably one of the most beautiful of all sacred texts that exist in the world. What is often misunderstood about the MAGAN Text is that it is not a basterdized version of the Enuma Elish, or ISHTAR’s Descent into the Underworld. However, it does list alchemical formulas based on these epics, and what they meant to the priestly class. I began reading the section in the MAGAN Text entitled, Of the Sleep of ISHTAR. The title immediately indicates that the content of this epic serves a purpose different from a general reading of ISHTAR/INANNA’ Decent into the Underworld.  The Sleep of ISHTAR tells us that ISHTAR descended from Heaven into the Black Earth, or the Land of Kutha.


Queen of Heaven
Bright Light of Nights
Mistress of the Gods
Set her mind in that direction
From Above she set her mind,
To Below she set her mind
From the Heavens she set forth
To the Abyss
Out of the Gates of the Living
To enter the Gates of Death
Out of the Lands we know
Into the Lands we know not
To the Land of No Return
To the Land of Queen ERESHKIGAL
ISHTAR, Queen of Heavens, she set her mind
ISHTAR, Daughter of SIN, she set forth
To the Black Earth, the Land of CUTHA
She set forth
To the House of No Return she set her foot
Upon the Road whence None Return
She set her foot
To the Cave, forever unlit
Where bowls of clay are heaped upon the alter
Where bowls of dust are the food
Of residents clothed only in wings
To ABSU ISHTAR set forth.
Where sleeps the dread CUTHALU
ISHTAR set forth”


 We have discovered in some of our previous discussions that the Black Earth, or Kutha, is the Universe that we see around us in our waking state. This is the Underworld in all its glory. No where else can we read about such mass destruction and pain, like it is in the world in which we live. Yet despite the great notorious evils that have occurred in human history such as the Holocaust, or the Slave Trade, and etc, Many religious people think that there is a world much worst than this.  It is within this world that evil forces exist, not in another world. The GateWalker should be very cautious not to slip into thinking that the Underworld is some place else. Notice what is stated on page 11 of the Simon Necronomicon, where it states:


“These are the signs carved upon the grey stone, that was the Gate to the Outside:”




The Three Seals of MASSHU are the key to opening us up to influences that exist Outside of the Underworld.  This is what is meant by the Outside, or things that exist Outside of the Underworld. This maybe confusing to some for when we step into GANZIR after our Walking MARDUK, we need to understand that even within the Judaic-Christian definition of the Qliphotic Tree there is also a DAATH or the Pit, where the seven fiery hells exist. The Three Seals of MASSHU are the same symbols that we mark our ritual tools with so that they can be affected by forces that exist outside the Underworld. Notice what is said in the Simon Necronomicon on page 97:


Know, fourthly, that it is become the obligation of the Priests of the Flame and the Sword, and of all Magick, to bring their Power to the Underworld and keep it chained thereby, for the Underworld is surely the Gate Forgotten, by which the Ancient Ones ever seek Entrance to the Land of the Living, And the Ministers of ABSU are clearly walking the Earth, riding on the Air, and upon the Earth, and sailing silently through the Water, and roaring in the Fire, and all these Spirits must be brought to subjection to the Person of the Priest of Magick, before any else. Or the Priest becomes prey to the Eye of Death of the Seven ANNUNNAKI, Lord of the Underworld, Ministers of the Queen of Hell.”


The passage quoted above clearly indicates the Priest/Priestess should keep their Power chained to the Underworld. It further states that the Priest must bring the spirits of the Air, Earth, Fire, and Water, under his/her subjection. These elements of Air, Earth, Fire, and Water exist is this realm, and are of this realm. This is one indication that this is the Underworld.  It further states that the ‘Priest may become the prey of the Seven ANNUNNAKI.’ These are the very same ANNUNNAKI that are mentioned in the MAGAN Text on pages 173-174 of the Simon Necronomicon:

“And the ANNUNAKI, Dread Judges
Seven Lords of the Underworld
Drew Around Her
Faceless Gods of ABSU
They stared
Fixed her with the Eye of Death
Withe the Glance of Death
They killed her
And hung her like a corpse from a stake
The sixty demons tearing her limbs from her sides
Her eyes from her head
Her ears from her skull.”



These Faceless Gods were none other than the Seven Elder Gods of the Seven Gates. They are considered to be “faceless” since they do not shine as stars do. This is further indicated by another passage that is mentioned on page 174 of the Simon Necronomicon, where we are informed of the affect that ISHTAR’s death had on the world:



“And the Elder Ones were rent with fear.”



This is the same “fear” that ENKI expressed when APSU was slain. This means then that the Initiate has been imprisoned by the same forces that teach him when he begins the process of self-initiation. When we begin to look at ISHTAR as a class of beings rather than an individual goddess in this account, the Initiate begins to learn more about his origin and the origin of his kind.




This is probably one of the most important passages in the Simon Necronomicon and it is also one of the most misinterpreted. The passage mentions that ‘INANNA TAKES HER OWN.’ This represents the class of Watchers who are from the Heavens yet live upon the Earth with Mankind. These Watchers were born of men yet fathered and mothered by a class of spirits known as the Lilitu, also known as the Succubi and Inccubi.  The Lilitu are defined in an online article that I read about Lilith. Notice what is written in this Wikipedia article about them.


“The earliest reference to a demon similar to Lilith and companion of Lillake/Lilith is on the Sumerian king list, where Gilgamesh’s father is named as Lillu.[4][1] Little is known of Lillu (”Wind[wer]man”; or Lilu, Lila) and he was said to disturb women in their sleep and had functions of an incubus, while Lilitu appeared to men in their erotic dreams.[1][5][6] Such qualities are further suggested by the Semitic associations made with the names Lila and Lilitu, namely those of lalu, or wandering about, and lulu, meaning lasciviousness.[7]

The Assyrian Lilitu were said to prey upon children and women, and were described as associated with lions, storms, desert, and disease. Early portrayals of such demons are known as having Zu bird talons for feet and wings.[1] They were highly sexually predatory towards men, but were unable to copulate normally. They were thought to dwell in waste, desolate, and desert places. Like the Sumerian Dimme, a male wind demon named Pazuzu was thought to be effective against them.[8][9]

Other storm and night demons from a similar class are recorded around this period: Lilu, an incubus; Ardat lili (”Lilith’s handmaid”), who would come to men in their sleep and beget children from them; and Irdu lili, the incubus counterpart to Ardat lili.[10] These demons were originally storm and wind demons; however later etymology made them into night demons.

Lilith’s epithet was “the beautiful maiden”. She was described as having no milk in her breasts and was unable to bear any children.[5][11] Babylonian texts depict Lilith as the prostitute of the goddess Ishtar. Similarly, older Sumerian accounts assert that Lilitu is called the handmaiden of Inanna or “hand of Inanna”. The Sumerian texts state that “Inanna has sent the beautiful, unmarried, and seductive prostitute Lilitu out into the fields and streets in order to lead men astray”. That is why Lilitu is called the “hand of Inanna”.[12][13]

The Lilitu, the Akkadian Ardat-Lili and the Assyrian La-bar-tu like Lilith, were figures of disease and uncleanliness. Ardat is derived from “ardatu”, a title of prostitutes and young unmarried women, meaning “maiden“. One magical text tells of how Ardat Lili had come to “seize” a sick man.[1] Other texts mention Lamashtu as the hand of Inanna/Ishtar in place of Lilitu and Ardat lili.

Lilith is further associated with the Anzu bird—Kramer translates the Anzu as owls, but most often it is translated as eagle, vulture, or a bird of prey—lions, owls, and serpents, which are animals associated with the Lilitu. It is from this mythology that the later Kabbalah depictions of Lilith as a serpent in the Garden of Eden and her associations with serpents are probably drawn.[14][15] Other legends describe the malevolent Anzu birds as “lion-headed” and pictures them as eagle monsters,[16] likewise to this a later amulet from Arslan Tash site features a sphinx like creature with wings devouring a child and has an incantation against Lilith or similar demons,[17] incorporating Lilith’s correlating animals of lions and owls.

Lamashtu (Sumer Dimme) was a very similar Mesopotamian demon to Lilitu and Lilith seems to have inherited many of Lamashtu’s myths.[18] She was considered a demi-goddess and daughter of Anu, the sky god.[19] Many incantations against her mention her status as a daughter of heaven and exercising her free will over infants. This makes her different from the rest of the demons in Mesopotamia. Unlike her demonic peers, Lamashtu was not instructed by the gods to do her malevolence; she did it on her own accord. She was said to seduce men, harm pregnant women, mothers, and neonates, kill foliage, drink blood, and was a cause of disease, sickness, and death. Some incantations describe her as “seven witches”.[20] The space between her legs is as a scorpion, corresponding to the astrological sign of Scorpio. (Scorpio rules the genitals & sex organs.) Her head is that of a lion, she has Anzu bird feet like Lilitu, her breasts are suckled by a pig and a dog, and she rides the back of a donkey.[21]

Two other Mesopotamian demons have a close relation to Lilitu, Gallu & Alû.[22] Alu was originally an asexual demon, who took on female attributes, but later became a male demon. Alu liked to roam the streets like a stray dog at night and creep into people’s bedrooms as they slept to terrify them. He was described as being half-human and half-devil. He appears in Jewish lore as Ailo, here, he is used as one of Lilith’s secret names. In other texts, Ailo is a daughter of Lilith that has had intercourse with a man. The other demon, Gallu is of the Utukku group. Gallu’s name, like Utukku, was also used as a general term for multiple demons.[23] Later, Gallu appears as Gello, Gylo, or Gyllou in Greco-Byzantine mythology as a child stealing and child killing demon. This figure was, likewise, adapted by the Jews as Gilu and was also considered a secret name of Lilith’s.[24]



“We discussed previously that LAMASHTU, LILITH, and NINHURSAG, were all the same deity or class of spirits. Interestingly, LAMASHTU or LILITH is said to be the handmaiden of ISHTAR. This gives us a deeper definition of the passage in the Simon Necronomicon.




The Lilitu, LAMASHTU/LILITH, and NINHURSAG, are all one and the same. These forces are not necessarily evil, but come from Universe B and are acting in accordance with their natures. We have identified the location of Universe B in our article about the Qliphotic Tree of Transformation. This is a very important point because if the Initiate has not reached the Sphere of ANU then they are not able to effectively work with the forces of the URILLA Text. In the SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIAL TO 777 that appears in the Introduction of the Simon Necronomicon it corresponds ANU with TIAMAT. Interestingly, Lana Rings, in her online article entitled Draco, the Dragon Most Awesome Constellation which can be found here had this to say:




“The words are all interrelated in meaning. Tiamat was the primordial oceanic waters from which all things came, the primordial womb, reminiscent of the oceanic waters of the womb (egg or mammalian uterus). According to the various myths the waters divided themselves or were divided to allow life to spring forth, again very reminiscent of the birth of humans, where the mother’s body is “divided” or “rent” to bring forth life from the waters of the womb. Even the eggshell is divided to bring forth new life–reptilian or fowl. The primordial waters were also red, after which the Red Sea is named, and red because that is the color of the waters of life, the blood which issues forth new life in birth. According to Walker, the word ‘diameter’ is derived from Tiamat, Goddess Mother, and to this day means splitting in half of a circle–for it is the line drawn through the middle of a circle, splitting it in half, just as the Mother was “split” in order that all creation could come from Her.



The word ‘diamater’ (God Mother) is close to the word Demeter, Goddess of the Grain in Greek religion. She is the Grain Mother, in astrology she is also Virgo, the Virgin (Virgin Mother and/or Maiden Aspect of the Triple Goddess [maiden, mother, crone]). She is the Virgo constellation in the sky. So could she be related to Tiamat, who is thought to be the Draco constellation? Could they be aspects of the same Goddess or divinity? From different times or places or aspects of her? I think so.



The Tiamat story that I have read is not the only one. Walker refers to a book from 1901 that I would like to get: Assyro-Babylonian Literature, for the books I have contain only the one story, where the primordial waters were already both female and male (Tiamat and Apsu, she the salt waters, he the fresh waters, by this time perhaps representing the liquid of both female and male in intercourse and human embryo production, and finally female birthing “waters”). However, there evidently are other versions, and in one or more Tiamat is the original divinity. So I’d like to find those stories as well. The one I have read comes from around 1000 or 900 BCE, and scholars think its origins come from around 2000 BCE.



The Tiamat story is a metaphor for birth, I do believe, for light comes from darkness, and form from chaos. She is the primordial waters, and from the darkness of the human mother’s womb, we are born into life and light. We also seem to assume form in the world after having been part of the “chaos,” i.e., primordial waters of the mother at conception and throughout pregnancy. (I also believe Armaggedon to be each human being’s death, for we all face it. I think that is where the idea of the end of the world comes, for it comes in reality with each human’s death.)



Now, Tiamat is originally the primordial waters in the story I read, but later on in the story when she has been persuaded to fight the later Gods, she has form, for she has legs, chest, head, mouth, and when Marduk kills her, he cuts her in half and creates heaven and earth from her halves. In addition, in one part she is called a “monster.” I wonder if in other stories she is called a serpent or dragon, because that is what some scholars think she was. In fact, Allen cites sources that maintain she was Draco, which would be logical. If she were the creator-destroyer divinity, around which all of creation turned, then it is quite plausible that she was indeed Draco, around which the whole of the sky turned when the polestar (north star) was a star in that constellation around 3000 BCE.



According to Johnson, Ishtar is another representation of Tiamat. She maintains they are one and the same. If that is so, that is quite interesting, for Ishtar is Aphrodite, or Venus, and is the morning and evening star. That then would link Draco, Virgo, and the planet Venus in the sky, as the same divinity, or aspects of the same divinity. In fact, Johnson goes on to state that Ishtar has both aspects to her, the creator and the destroyer, and her destroyer aspect is called AnZu (one word). Ishtar is a virgin Goddess, I believe, according to Johnson. The hymn to Ishtar is supposed to be from about 1600 BCE. It is from Mesopotamia. At this time in Crete, the Minoan Bird-Snake Goddess is being made. Are there any connections?



Certainly there are connections between Tiamat and Ishtar. According to Johnson, “[f]rom Ishtar’s divided body, the firmament and the earth were born and all living things formed. An expression of the origin of the universe from chaos, this myth also describes the seasonal fruitfulness of the land where spring flood waters (Ishtar) are dispersed by the sun and winds” (p. 230). Ishtar is the waters, similar to Tiamat, and her body was also divided to make the heavens and the earth. Further, “[a]n alternate name for Ishtar, Tiamat, has as its root the Semitic word ‘tehom’, meaning “the deep of the ocean,” which links her to the fish” (p. 230) and to the Old Testament creation story. “



The above quote indicates a correspondence between ISHTAR and TIAMAT. If this is true then it would also explain other Sumerian myths, and Simon’s placement of TIAMAT with the Sphere of ANU, as ISHTAR was married to ANU. They had a son named Shara. This would also explain why NINSHUBUR was the Watcher to both ISHTAR and ANU.  Eanna was considered to be the Temple of ANU and INANNA/ISHTAR, which was located in Uruk. Simon must have recognized the correlation between TIAMAT and INANNA/ISHTAR, which is why he put the attributed TIAMAT in being in the same Sphere of ANU in his SUPLEMENTARY MATERIAL TO 777. Notice what is mentioned in the Simon Necronomicon in its Introduction, under the topic GODDDESS OF THE WITCHES:



“Therefore, the Goddess of the Witches has two distinct forms: the Ancient One, Goddess of the Dragon-like telluric Power which is raised in Magickal rituals, and the Elder Goddess, Defeater of Death, who brings the promise of Resurrection and Rejuvenation to her followers those who must reside for a time after death and between incarnations in what is called the “Summerland“.”



The above quote mentions ISHTAR as the conquerer of death, and this promise can be fulfilled by those who follow her. The Of The Sleep of ISHTAR account given to us in the MAGAN Text, it mentions the following:



“Our Father ENKI
Lord of Magick
Receiving word by NINSHUBUR
He hears of ISHTAR’s Sleep
In the House of Death
He hears how GANZIR has been
How the Face of Abyss
Opened wide its mouth
And swallowed the Queen of Heaven
Queen of the Rising of the Sun.”



We are the class of ISHTAR who lay dead in the Underworld until we begin Calling upon ENKI. ENKI gives us the vital energy that we need to move through the Gates ascending back to where we came from Universe B. however, we must keep in mind that the Seven Initiatory Gates are there to strip away the false ego that we acquired in the mundane world. Notice the following number system.

  2. NANNA GATE = 30
  3. NEBO GATE = 12
  4. ISHTAR GATE = 15
  6. NERGAL GATE = 8
  7. MARDUK GATE = 10
  8. ADAR GATE = 4

30 + 12 + 15 + 20 + 8 + 10 + 4 = 99. Now we must remember that we given access to the 50 Names in the Sphere of MARDUK. This would mean that we must add the 50 Names in. 99 + 50 = 149. Now we must remember to count our own self as the Arra or Star. This would give us a total sum of 150.

It is important at this time to remember that the SPHERE OF KI is LAMMASHTU/LILITH/NINHURSAG is without number because it is a space between the worlds. It is recorded that LILITH or LAMMASHTU is recorded as being the “handmaiden of ISHTAR.” This means that the Lilitu, as we mentioned before are the Initiators and Mentors to the Initiate. These spirits may appear evil to some but only to those not chosen by ISHTAR. This is what is meant by “INANNA TAKES HER OWN FOR HER OWN.” The Lilitu, or spirits from Universe B, are used to seductively attract men and women or those of us who once resided in Heaven and descended into the Underworld. This is why it is also written in the Simon Necronomicon that “ONCE CHOSEN BY HER (ISHATAR) NO MAN MAY TAKE ANOTHER BRIDE.” This means that our initiation into the way of the Ancient Ones, or those of the Sumerian Pantheon, cannot be replaced by another once the Initiate has begun there journey, or any other path that they have been on before coming to terms with INANNA/ISHTAR. The seriousness of this is also described by is an Interview with Historian Denny Sargent, he mentions the following:



“It is not for me, the mythology doesn’t interest me except from an academic point of view and (see my answer above) I would not mess with ‘part’ of this system in any way. That would be half-assed. I am very much an eclectic ritualist (I wrote a book on it! Global Ritualism) but this is not an ‘open source’ mythic system- it is magickal and not devotional- One should not dabble to try out this system. DO IT or do NOT do it – don’t dabble. Read the book first!!!”



The Interview with Historian Denny Sargent can be seen here:


The marriage between the female/male spirits (Lilitu/Lilith/Lamashtu) and the Priest/ Priestesses of the Sumerian Pantheon is the foundation for understanding the deeper meaning of these rites. The Bible tried to hide this form of alchemy in the Hebrew Scriptures. Notice what is said in the Book of Genesis Chapter Six:


1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.”


We can see that the Judaic-Christian rites try to completely destroy the feminine aspect of the Sumerian Pantheon. However, we do see a correlation when we identify the “sons of God” as the Lilitu, or handmaidens of INANNA/ISHTAR. We can also see that demeaning viewpoint of woman that is so typical of the Judaic-Christian rites because the underlining meaning to this Biblical passage is that the angels of god defiled themselves with woman, as if women are filthy. Yet we compare this passage to the Mesopotamian rites, we can see that both men and woman were selected by the Goddess.


Now that we have a clear understanding of the Lilitu’s role in our rites, we can move on further into our discussion. So now we can say that the Initiate has been stripped of his/her false ego and has passed all the Seven Initiatory Gates. He/she is standing at Adar and must return no back through the way they came until they get back to LAMMASHTU/LILITH/NINHURSAG, which would be ground zero. Now that they are stripped down, they must work on becoming a new creation. This can be done by venturing into the Gates of ENKI, ENLIL, and ANU. The numbers of the Three Great Watchers are as follows:

  1. RNKI = 40
  2. ENLIL = 50
  3. ANU = 60

The sum of these three numbers gives us a total of 150. This is the same number that we arrived at in the Seven Initiatory Gates. It should be noted that the Seven Gates serve a great purpose, in that we are able to see the true potential in ourselves and what tendencies we have fallen into that must be undone to truly make ourselves anew. Yet when we are venturing into the Gates of the Three Great Watchers, we must Walk one after another because the Gates of ENKI and ENLIL serve as transitional Gates leading us to Universe B, or the Sphere of ANU, which is not the final Gate, but the beginning in our becoming the Dragon. Some like to visit ENKI and ENLIL, and then descend back down to the transitional Gates. However, this would only washout what is added by our visit to these transitional Gates of ENKI and ENLIL.



Once the Initiate has reached the Sphere of ANU they have entered Universe B. However the journey does not stop there.

The passing of the Gates gives the priest both power and wisdom to use it. He becomes able to control the affairs of his life more perfectly than before, and many have been content to merely pass the first three Gates and then sit down and go no further than that, enjoying the benefits that they have found on the preliminary spheres. But this is Evil, for they are not equipped to deal with the attack from Without that must surely come, and their people will cry unto them for safety, and it will not come forth. Therefore, set thy face towards the ultimate goal and strive ever onward to the furthest reaches of the stars, though it mean thine own death; for such a death is as a sacrifice to the Gods, and pleasing, that they will not forget their people.”


The “death” that is spoken of in the quote above is symbolic of the death of the ego. When we step into Universe B, or the Sphere of ANU, we are at the beginning to manifest divinity within ourselves. Yet we must continue this process to the furthest reaches of the stars. So what are the Spheres that are past ANU? Notice what is mentioned in the MAGAN Text on page 154:


“Then it was that the Gods were formed within the Ancient Ones.
LLMU and LLAAMU were brought forth and called by Name,
And for Ages they grew in age and bearing.
ANSHAR and KISHAR were brought forth,
And brought forth ANU”


The above passage informs us of the lineage of ANU. ANU constitutes our placement in Universe B, or entry into those alien worlds. For us to reach further in perfecting ourselves we must Walk the Spheres beyond ANU. The next Sphere would be that of ANSHAR and KISHAR. The Sphere of ANSHAR and KISHAR is where heaven and earth become one. We walk past the divided mind into a place of unity and the metaphysical world becomes one with the mundane. ANSHAR means whole sky and KISHAR means whole earth. Thus, it stands that the Sphere of ANSHAR and KISHAR is the unification of heaven and earth. This makes us reflect on the legend of ENLIL separating ANU from KI. In the Gate of ANSHAR and KISHAR we experience a world before this separation occurred. Since ANU’s number is 60, then it would be safe to place ANHAR at 70, along with KISHAR at 70. 70 + 70 = 140. This would mean then that the number of ANSHAR and KISHAR is 140. The effects of this Gate upon the Initiate’s consciousness is almost equivalent to Walking the entire Seven gates at once, as its number is 140, just ten less that the total number we came up with in the Seven Initiatory Gates and the Gates of the Three great Watchers. This is why I suggest that ENKI, ENLIL, and ANU must be walked in their order and not broken up by Walking one of the Seven Gates in-between, otherwise the effects could be difficult to embrace. If one were to Walk ANSHAR and KISHAR after Waling ANU, then it is a smoother transition, though it is still extremely powerful. The fact that the number of the Sphere of ANSHAR and KISHAR is 140, and is 10 less than both the Seven Gates and the Three Great Watchers, these both totaling to 150 each as we have discussed, indicates that this is a Gate where one experiences the world without the MARDUK (10) male patriarchy energies. Universe B is the universe of the Goddess. Marduk also represents benevolence and morality, the concepts of which are not known in these worlds, in the same sense that humans see these things. The goodness and morality are liberating rather than being analytical or imprisoning. It is an alien experience.


After we Walk the Sphere of ANSHAR and KISHAR, we are to approach the Sphere of  LLMU and LLAAMU.. The definition of LLMU and LLAAMU, properly known as Lahmu and Lahamu, is not certain amongst scholars. However, Lahmu and Lahamu is usually translated as the “muddy ones.” This term has also bee defined as the twilight, or the dawn. This is the Gate where one is truly a new creation and an Ancient One by all sense of the word. It is here that our Inner Flame, also known as the Black Flame is much brighter that the external lights effect upon us. Appropriately, the number of LLMU would be 80, and the number of LLAAMU would be 80. This would mean that the Sphere of LLMU and LLAAMU is 160. Interestingly, when we add up the corresponding numbers we get the sum of Universe A. Notice the info below:


Universe A

The Seven Initiatory Spheres = 150

The Spheres of the Three Great Watchers ENKI, ENLIL, and ANU is 150

Universe A has a total value of 300 – 60 = 240 since ANU is the first step and border between Universe A and B


Universe B.

The Sphere of ANSHAR and KISHAR is 140

The Sphere of LLMU and LLAAMU is 160

Universe B has a value of 300, but when we add in the number of ANU, we get a total of 360. 360 was considered to be a perfect number by the Sumerians


The difference between Universe A and B is as follows: 360 – 240 =  120.

The number 120 is the sum of ENKI (40) ENLIL (50) and NANNA (30) 40 + 50 + 30 =120


In INANNA’S Descent Into The Underworld,  INANNA sent her Watcher to NANNA, ENLIL, and ENKI, or the difference between this Universe and Universe B. This shows us that this indeed is the Underworld since Universe B is of greater value. Next we will define what is the meaning of MARDUK slay the dragon have to do with our recent findings.








  1. Congratulations on making it to Anu gate, brother. I have recently begun walking that gate myself. The understanding really flows like never before, eh?

    Are you familiar with the Voodon Gnostic Workbook by Michael Bertaiux? He organized the Order of the Black Snake (La Coulouvre Noir) in Chicago. I have found his work to be an excellent companion to the advanced sections of the Necronomicon. I highly recommend you pick up a copy if you haven’t done so already – I’m sure you could make great use of it.

  2. warlockasylum says:

    Thanks Brother David! It’s good to hear from you. I have heard of that book before, and I will definitely make it a point to get it since you mentioned it. Congratulations on your visit to Anu as well. Do you find that since you have Walked Anu that the Urilla Text seems to unfold a little more? Especially since Simon lists in his Supplementary material that links Anu/Tiamat?

    Would be interesting to get your opinion on that. Thanks once again for posting that info 🙂

  3. Oh yes – not just the Urilia text, but EVERY esoteric text I have is becoming lucid!

    Since I did go with Simon’s attribution of Anu and Tiamat being in the Zero, transcending the Unity of the Crown/Kether, the experiences have been extremely mystical. Oftentimes my identity is in flux during the sessions – the distinction between myself and the gods can disappear.

    One of my major experiences was with the 3 Negative Veils of Existence – Endless Light, Infinity, and Negation (Ayn Sof Or, Ayn Sof, and Ayn). The last one can’t be “passed” without physically dying, but my guide (I’m not sure if it was Metatron, Anu, or maybe both) showed me that if I turned my face around and walked backward, I could merge with the veil/gate itself, and thus integrate myself with the Final Positive while remaining alive on earth. To look upon the face of God is to know madness and death, but our own faces can become ideal reflections of that Great Face to everyone around us. Its written in the Torah that blinding light shone out of Moses’ face when he came down from the Holy Mountain, and so they had to put a veil over his face so he didn’t blind everyone. In the secret sense, this implies that Judaism (and later Christianity and Islam) felt compelled to place veils over Moses’ entire tradition, and indeed over the apprehension of God Itself.

    The final klippot` is called Thaumiel, which means “the twin(s) of God”. Duality itself is the final hurdle to overcome! What a magnificent mystery! I don’t know what comes next, but I feel like I’m learning to make peace with those two great poles of existence that we call by so many different names and aspects.

    Interesting indeed! I know what you mean by understanding the nature of different texts on a different level. Especially the veiling of Moses’ Tradition. You might try reading Revelation Chapter 12. It would read almost like an excerpt from the Mad Arab. Have you been prompted to Walk the joined Gate of Anshar and Kishar? I think that the epitome of the system ends with LLMU and LLAAMU, in my opinion. However, I do not think it ends there since the Mad Arab says that his journey lasted for 1m001 Moons, which is 77 years. I think this means that he walked the Tree of 11 Spheres in all 7 Gates. Another type of Walking could be to Walk the 11 Spheres in the four elements. However, since there are 13 moons in one year, once you past the first 7 Gates in the process of self-initiationm begin at Earth, or Ninhurag to LLMU and LLAAAMU would be sic Gates, as we are reinventing ourselves after being stripped down by the Seven gates like Ishtar was. Of course 7 + 6 would give us 13, but if we include Tiamat then that would be 7 + 7 or the 77 🙂

    I am thinking of going to up to LLMU and LLAAMU. The other thing to conider is that Walking those gates is a supernatural intense experience yet Anshar and Kishar were never spoken of separately, which leads me to conclude that in that Gate Heaven and Earth become united. Since the number of this joined gate would be 140..i imagine it to be very intense. Any thoughts?

  5. I think that the Mad Arab – at least, the outer character that is presented in the Necronomicon – only went as far as Anu in the book that “he” left to us. Remember that in the beginning of the story he’s telling about how he finally found the Arzir gate after a very long search, and that he was writing the book through the power of the planes of the Igigi – ie, the Watchers. That would include both the race of watchers and the Three Great Watchers that rule over them. That’s the realm of Wisdom/Chokhmah – the realm of the right brain in which the black/white dichotomy begins to break down into a more neutral gray. He begins a personal nightmare when he attempts to breach the next gate, and thus feels compelled to write the Necronomicon before the creeping doom he’s unleashed catches up with him.

    I was told when I got to that point that not just the Mad Arab, but everyone who reaches that stage must write their own grimoire and systematize what they have found to pass on to others. I think it was Crowley who said that the objective of the Magus degree was to create and implement your own law and word. What lies beyond becomes more and more impossible to convey the farther you go.

    I do not believe that the end of the Necronomicon was the end of the Mad Arab. What it did entail was the beginning of the end of his dualism between the Elder gods and the Ancient Ones, and the beginning of the ego death as you have described it. You can see in the final chapters where he’s starting to get suspicious that there’s more to the story than he’s been told. “They called on Enki! They can’t do that – its blasphemy! He’s our god, not theirs! Isn’t he? And why do they worship the ancient ones with such pride?”

    Its a classical shamanistic initiation in which the spirits tear the candidate apart so that they can reassemble him as a more perfect being. Since our hero had consciously rejected goetia & necromancy in favor of only theurgy & “positive” magic, only a very traumatic experience could force him to see beyond his artificial duality. European magic itself saw this great schism occur – the high and mighty scholar/cleric mages were constantly trying to distinguish themselves from the “low and base” sorcerers, witches, and negromancers. They claimed the tradition of the magi was poluted and debased, and perhaps it was, but in truth magia embraces both the light and the darkness. Lo and behold you have inquisitions and burnings (maklu) breaking out everywhere. Meanwhile, masters of black, Faustian magic like the Borgias are being crowned as popes!

    Whether the Mad Arab deliberately wrote the Necronomicon with that dualistic blind or he just naturally didn’t know any better is a matter of opinion – he admits that he copied the Magan and Urilia texts from others and did not author them himself. Whether he couldn’t or wouldn’t convey their deeper understanding is secondary to whether the initiate can breach that final gap themselves. The Necronomicon’s final test is whether you will be forever trapped by its worldview, or you will have the courage to transcend it in favor of your own personal gnosis.

    Very well put. I agree with your opinion as to how far the Mad Arab walked according to the book. The Anu gate is very interesting indeed. Excellent thought. Thank you!

  7. I have been reading about necronomicon but I do not have any ideas as to how it works. Can you please provide me with more information regarding this effort.

      I will send you an email shortly, where we can correspond about the “work”

      Be Well

  8. I have not checked in here for a while as I thought it was getting boring, but the last several posts are really great quality so I guess I’ll add you back to my daily bloglist. You deserve it my friend. 🙂
