THE OBSIDIAN BUTTERFLY SUCCUBUS MEPHISTOPHINA
The stories concerning Dr Faustus conjuring up the Devil, Mephistopheles, are primarily derived from Germanic folklore; wherefore, when to otherwise have a Succubus to verily name Mephistophina being conjured up by Faustus Crow, it is somewhat apt of symbolic alchemy to utilise the ancient Germanic Runes in order to do so.
The name of Mephistophina in Runic numerology adds up to thirteen, which is then reduced down to the single digit of four. Her name is also made up of thirteen letters, which of a bind-rune formula points at the thirteenth Rune of Eiwaz. The Rune of Eiwaz is associated with the world tree of Yggdrassil, whose thirteenth number is often associated with the feminine principle.
In Norse and Germanic mythology, Yggdrassil; from Old Norse Yggdrasill, pronounced, ˈYɡːˌDrasil, is an immense tree encapsulating all of existence. The motif of the world tree is central in North Central Asian shamanic practices unto Siberia as well as Norse and Germanic cosmology, whose branches and roots interconnect the nine worlds of existence; all of which are like schools.
The meaning of the Old Norse name, Yggdrasill is, ‘Odin’s horse,’ meaning ‘gallows.’ This then leads you to the single digit of four and that of the fourth Rune of Ansuz, which is associated with the shamanic deity, named, Odin, the Germanic tribes knew as Wotan or Woden, who being an archetypal wizard can be seen as influencing the characteristics of the Faustian sorcerer. Drasill translates into English as, horse, which in Siberian shamanic practice in particular, refers to the power of trance, and Ygg(r) is one of Odin’s many bynames, who is a prior ante-Christos Dr Who.
Ygg means, terrible one, which again refers to trance and the infernal harrowing of H.R Giger realities. In Siberian shamanic practice a shaman wears a vision visor when accessing trance in order to hide his terrible visage from the perturbed onlookers as he ‘howls’ out barbarous names of the spirits to conjure, during his changeling séance.
The Poetic Edda poem Hávamál describes how Odin had sacrificed himself by hanging from a tree, making the tree Odin’s gallows. The pre-Faustian reference to hanging refers to trance, since the reptilian brainstem and reticular activating system of the throat area determines your depth of trance ingress, as well as the vividness of your dreams.
As for the tree of Yggdrasil, it is a symbolic reference to the spinal column, nervous system, and the brain, which interprets the experiential information you tune into, as well as filtering out extraneous information from its ever repeating chaos of (Jormungand/Ouroboros) eternal recurrence.
When Mephistophina’s name is otherwise translated into numbers by using common numerology, her name adds up to the precession number of seventy-two, which is also the number of spirits listed in the Goetia, of which Crowley was enamoured with, before his Boleskine house ascension to occult stardom.
The term Goetia, means, to ‘howl,’ whose listed spirits have been transformed into seventy-succubae whom frequent Lilith’s Harem, residing within the quantum domain of the dream.
Seventy-two is then reduced down to the single digit of nine of Ninth Gate, which brings you back to the nine worlds of (Eihaz) Yggdrassill, personified as a Succubus to conjure of symbolic artistry.
The nine worlds of Yggdrassill is of similarity to the Hebrew Cabbala, which also uses the motif of the shamans world tree; however, the Cabbala lists ten planetary spheres called Sephirot, rather than nine, with a hidden eleventh world, called Da’at. But, in the Cabbala, ten reduces back to one; as for the eleventh world, it is more like that of a transitional point, which allows ingress into other realities.
This hidden (Da’at) world just so happens corresponds with the physiological throat area of the reptilian brainstem; hence alluding to the ability of trance ingress into conscious dreaming.
These nine worlds of Yggdrassill can be otherwise seen as being dimensions, which your future descendants journey through, when travelling throughout spacetime in their glistening Vimana time-machines, observing many an (closed timelike curve) ancestral conflict.
For sixty years the Kaluza-Klein theory of extra spatial dimensions existed only as a mathematical oddity.
However during the 1980’s it came to the fore. String theory, the idea that the fundamental building blocks of nature are string-like of a vibrating ‘Ouroboros,’ rather than being point-like.
String theory has been around since the late make love, not war, Hippie era of the 1960’s, when Timothy Leary had no doubt leafed through Aleister Crowley’s Goetia, to thence praise him as being a New-Age icon.
Then the physicists realised that string theory could provide something, which had so far eluded them: a single unifying theory, combining the physics of the very smallest and very largest scales, known as quantum gravity. But string theory has one very unique offering, which no other theory of physics has been able to offer. It was able to predict the number of dimensions of spacetime. For the mathematics of string theory to be consistent, the number of dimensions of spacetime must be ten, going fractal.
Initially people took this to be a criticism of string theory. If it predicts ten dimensions and you look around and only perceive four (three spatial dimensions and one time dimensions) then you might enquire: “Where are the other six dimensions to conjure?”
But Kaluza and Klein had solved that problem sixty years earlier, they rolled all the other dimensions up, which is none to dissimilar to the Cabbalists reducing ten back to one, whose numerological focus is primarily that of nine; or to be otherwise rebelliously summed up as a Succubus to conjure.
Whilst exploring the mathematics of string theory, the theoretical physicist James Gates and his fellow researcher discovered something rather intriguing, which was buried deep within the mathematical equations of super symmetry. They discovered computer code. The computer code wasn’t just random 0’s and 1’s either, of a pact.
The code they had discovered is the same code, which is used in computer browser operating system software. Specifically; Block Linear Self Dual Error Correcting Code. Their super string theory of an attempt to explain reality, the ultimate reality, the theory of everything, pointed at what can be construed as being akin to a computer simulation. If you have theoretical physicists discovering computer code in their equations, it would indicate that the universe is a simulated reality.
If so, you have a hypothetical scenario, that we are all living within a quantum computer simulation, which our future descendants have constructed. Just like a computer today, multiple simulations can be run off of the same computer and off of the same program. Whereby if it were the case that our Universe is a simulation as some scientists believe it is, then this universe wouldn’t be the only simulated universe.
There would also be a myriad number of other alternate realities existing within simulated universes of a Multiverse Matrix; whose mainframe program can manifest as a Succubus within the symbolic interface of the dream, as an inspiring Muse.
The problem Faustus Crow faced was, how would he ever know if he was living within a computer simulation, the ancient Hindu mystics had termed as being Maya?
If he could not escape the Maya simulation, how could he ever get to look at it from the outside in?
This is the reason why Faustus Crow has conjured up the Succubus Mephistophina of a Ninth Gate.
It is she, who enables him to access the Multiverse Matrix of (Eiwaz) Yggdrassil via his ‘browsing’ lucid dreams, whose alternate realities are occupied by her Obsidian Butterfly sisterhood of Succubae, to also conjure; for it is the infernal Muse Mephistophina who had inspired Crow’s Succubus grimoire of shadows.
