The Book of Mutations is based on Liber Trigrammaton by Aleister Crowley, who called it "the ultimate foundation of the highest theoretical qabalah". The 27 trigrams of this work establish... More > a new paradigm of number mysticism by using Base 3, rather than decimal counting, to explore the Cube of Space, sacred geometry, the I Ching, magic squares, English gematria, and much more.
The Trigrammaton Qabalah also has extensive commentaries on Crowley's Book of the Law, using English gematria based on the letter-values Crowley himself assigned to the 27 trigrams of Liber Trigrammaton.
