Necronomicon

Terminological Analysis of the Necronomicon Part Seven – Negative States of Mind

The Necronomicon is real paganism, real flesh-and-blood paganism. It is the paganism of the sacrifice, of howling at the Moon, of demonic forces unleashed in the Mesopotamian night. It is the magic of the Outsider, rituals of distress, incantations of anger and rage: the part of paganism – of real human life and experience – left out of most New Age circles. It represents spiritual, even existential, desperation.

Dead Names – Simon

We will be conducting our analysis according to Simon’s description of the magic of the Necronomicon, with a specific focus on negative aspects and mental states. We will try to illustrate a proper synergy between the numerical values of certain obscure names, their possibly corresponding degrees of negative mental states, and how these energies are described in the texts.

In the Urilia Text the Mad Arab informs us on ‘Two Prayers to the Ancient Ones’, telling us that they are ‘Prayers of Emptiness and Darkness, which rob the spirit’.

Hymn to the Ancient Ones

They are lying down, the Great Old Ones.
The bolts are fallen and the fastenings are placed.
The crowds are quiet and the people are quiet.
The Elder Gods of the Land
The Elder Goddesses of the Land
SHAMMASH
SIN
ADAD
ISHTAR
Have gone to sleep in heaven.
They are not pronouncing judgement.
They are not deciding decisions.
Veiled is the Night.
The Temple and the Most Holy Places are quiet and dark.
The Judge of Truth
The Father of the Fatherless
SHAMMASH
Has gone to his chamber.
O Ancient Ones!
Gods of the Night!
AZABUA!
IAK SAKKAK!
KUTULU!
NINNGHIZHIDDA!
O Bright One, GIBIL!
O Warrior, IRRA!
Seven Stars of Seven Powers!
Ever-Shining Star of the North!
SIRIUS!
DRACONIS!
CAPRICORNUS!
Stand by and accept
This sacrifice I offer
May it be acceptable
To the Most Ancient Gods!

IA MASHMASHTI! KAKAMMU SELAH!

This particularly confusing prayer contains a lot of hidden surprises, and we should make it immediately clear that the main body of the text actually originates from an old Babylonian prayer to the gods of the night, the stars. We will omit examining those parts of the prayer, as we have discussed that elsewhere and it can be viewed, with additional information, in Alan Lenzi’s Reading Akkadian Hymns and Prayers. Instead we will take a look at the ‘barbarous’ names through the use of simple gematria, while keeping in mind that the use of this prayer somehow robs the spirit.

AZABUA: A(1) + Z(26) + A(1) + B(2) + U(21) + A(1) = 52

IAKK SAKKAK: I(9) + A(1) + K(11) + S(19) + A(1) + K(11) + K(11) + A(1) + K(11) = 75

KUTULU: K(11) + U(21) + T(20) + U(21) + L(12) + U(21) = 106

NINNGHIZHIDDA: N(14) + I(9) + N(14) + N(14) + G(7) + H(8) + I(9) + Z(26) + H(8) + I(9) + D(4) + D(4) + A(1) = 127
Only the last name has its foundation in Sumerian lore, though in this instance it might just have come in handy for its numerical value. This will become clear when we match these values with specific mental concepts certainly capable of ‘robbing the spirit’.
PRIDE: P(16) + R(18) + I(9) + D(4) + E(5) = 52
MADNESS: M(13) + A(1) + D(4) + N(14) + E(5) + S(19) + S(19) = 75
ADULTERY: A(1) + D(4) + U(21) + L(12) + T(20) + E(5) + R(18) +Y(25) = 106
CONDEMNATION: C(3) + O(15) + N(14) + D(4) + E(5) + M(13) + N(14) + A(1) + T(20) + I(9) + O(15) + N(14) = 127
The Book of Fifty Names contains different variations of some of these names and makes mention of others too. Whatever their nature, they all seem to be either Ancient Ones themselves or, in one way or another, associated with them, and apparently able, when invoked, of robbing the spirit.
IAK KINGU: I(9) + A(1) + K(11) + K(11) + I(9) + N(14) + G(7) + U(21) = 83
IAK AZAG: I(9) + A(1) + K(11) + A(1) + Z(26) + A(1) + G(7) = 56
IAK AZABUA: I(9) + A(1) + K(11) + A(1) + Z(26) + A(1) + B(2) + U(21) + A(1) = 73
IAK HUWAWA: I(9) + A(1) + K(11) + H(8) + U(21) + W(23) + A(1) + W(23) + A(1) = 98
ISHNIGARRAB: I(9) + S(19) + H(8) + N(14) + I(9) + G(7) + A(1) + R(18) + R(18) + A(1) + B(2) = 106
IAK XASTUR: I(9) + A(1) + K(11) + X(24) + A(1) + S(19) + T(20) + U(21) + R(18) = 124
IAK KUTULU: I(9) + A(1) + K(11) + K(11) + U(21) + T(20) + U(21) + L(12) + U(21) = 127
Again we are able to link these specific entities to various degrees of negative mental states, as we will see.
ALTER EGO: A(1) + L(12) + T(20) + E(5) + R(18) + E(5) + G(7) + O(15) = 83
HATRED: H(8) + A(1) + T(20) + R(18) + E(5) + D(4) = 56
SLANDER: S(19) + L(12) + A(1) + N(14) + D(4) + E(5) + R(18) = 73
ANXIETY: A(1) + N(14) + X(24) + I(9) + E(5) + T(20) + Y(25) = 98
ADULTERY: A(1) + D(4) + U(21) + L(12) + T(20) + E(5) + R(18) +Y(25) = 106
DEPRESSION: D(4) + E(5) + P(16) + R(18) + E(5) + S(19) + S(19) + I(9) + O(15) + N(14) = 124
CONDEMNATION: C(3) + O(15) + N(14) + D(4) + E(5) + M(13) + N(14) + A(1) + T(20) + I(9) + O(15) + N(14) = 127
The prayer is concluded by the words:
IA MASHMASHTI! KAKAMMU SELAH!
The word MASHMASHTI is interesting as it equals the same gematrical value as PAZUZU.
MASHMASHTI: M(13) + A(1) + S(19) + H(8) + M(13) + A(1) + S(19) + H(8) + T(20) + I(9) = 111
PAZUZU: P(16) + A(1) + Z(26) + U(21) + Z(26) + U(21) = 111
And the word SELAH brings us back around to the negative mental states, and the subject of this text.
SELAH: S(19) + E(5) + L(12) + A(1) + H(8) = 45
ANGER: A(1) + N(14) + G(7) + E(5) + R(18) = 45
I have no doubt that those who walked this Path already are quite familiar with any and all of these “sins of the mind“, for does the Mad Arab not warn us by actually saying:
“… if the gates ( the gates of the mind) are not kept always locked, bolted and barred, then the One who is always ready, the Guardian of the Other side, MADNESS, will enter and bring with him the hordes of the armies of the Ancient Ones (chthonic mental states), The Alter Ego, Hatred, Slanderous Words, Anxiety, Adultery, Depression, and Condemnation.
