The Seal of Saturn is geometrically related to the hexagram. It is therefore related to each of these well-known occult symbols in turn.
- The Seal of Solomon
- The Seal of Hermes/Thoth (also known as the Seal of Silence).
- The Unicursal Hexagram
- The Seal of Thoth is a hieroglyphic text, apparently apocalyptic in nature.
- Thoth's teachings pertain to the mysteries of the heavens, and as such he is identified with the messenger of the God's; Hermes/Mercury.
- The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus, patron of hermetism, dictates the following, as a formula for alchemy and the universe at large; That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above corresponds to that which is Below.
- The formula; as above, so below, is represented in the Seal of Solomon, by two inverted triangles.
The Seal of Solomon; Hermes Trismegistus.
Hermes transmits light by concealing it, behind the veiled meaning of the symbols. Hermetism is founded upon the idea of secrecy, therefore its teachings must remain as such. The invisible world of the celestial realms can only be made visible through their concealment. The Seal of Hermes is also known as the Seal of Silence, perhaps for this very same reason.
- The Seal of Saturn is the Seventh Planetary Seal.
- In a series of alchemical drawings, known as the 12 Keys of Basil Valentine, the Seal of Hermes appears in the 7th Key, along side a woman bearing a balance and the sword (Judgement).
- From the Book of Revelations 8:1 "When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets."
- The opening of the Seventh Seal is a Prelude to the 7 Angels their 7 trumpets, and the Final Judgement.
- The number 7; of 7 seals, planets, angels, trumpets and keys.
- The Emerald Tablet of Alchemy.
- The coming apocalypse; according to the Christian Tradition.
- And silence; i.e. the Seal of Silence, and the quote; "there was silence in heaven."
If magic squares form the basis for alchemical planetary seals and hold the key to the occult significance of the number 17, then it is very possible that Yamasaki included this type of gnomic geometry into his designs for the WTC towers. The Twin Towers were of square floor plan; 208 feet by 208 feet (63.3984 metres). The floor area was spanned by numerous truss beams that divide the region into 261 even square segments. This equivalent to a square with length 31 for each side. The magic square size-31 can be seen here overlaid on the WTC2 floor plan. Each row, column and diagonal of this square sums to 14, 911. Now, that's a coincidence; not only does it contain the number 911, but two times 7,000, which is 7+7, correlating, once again to the July 7th attack in London; 77.
Magic Square Size-31 over the WTC-2 floor plan revealing important quadrals. All rows columns and diagonals
sum to 14, 911.
The rectangular feature in the floor plan is the shaft that contained the elevator system for the entire building. Each corner of this rectangular feature sits on one of four quadral numbers, within the magic square, these are; 343, 619, 951 and, surprisingly, 11. The sum of each of these four numbers forms what is known as a kernel number, in this case; 1924. By dividing the characteristic number of the magic square; 14, 911, by the kernel number, the result - 7.75 - confirms, once again, the 77 correlation. More interestingly, 1924 was a year of maximum solar activity, just like 2001. As such, 1924 was a year of considerable social and political upheaval, particularly in India, where the 1924 Kohat riots occurred; lasting from Sept. 9 - 11, and leaving 155 people dead.
Between the two years 1924 and 2001, is a period totaling six full Sunspot Cycles, lasting 11 years each; or 66 years. Other years of solar maximum, and some of their significant events, include;
- 1936: March 16 – Adolf Hitler announces German rearmament in violation of the Versailles Treaty.
- 1946: July 1 – Nuclear testing: Operation Crossroads, a series of nuclear weapon tests conducted by the United States at Bikini Atoll in Micronesia, is initiated by detonation of Able at an altitude of 520 feet (158 m).
- 1957: An important year (in occult terms) to do with the years 1990, 2001 and 2012.
- 1968: A hugely important year in terms of student uprisings and political crises, May of '68.
- 1979: August 27 – Lord Mountbatten of Burma and 3 others are assassinated by the Provisional Irish Republican Army. He was a British admiral, statesman and an uncle of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. On the same day, the Warrenpoint ambush occurs: Provisional Irish Republican Army members attack a British convoy at Narrow Water, County Down, killing 18 British soldiers.
- 1990: September 11 – Gulf War: President George H. W. Bush delivers a nationally televised speech in which he threatens the use of force to remove Iraqi soldiers from Kuwait.
- 2001; September 11 – no comment.
- 2012: Information pending.
The magic square of order 31 is associated with sorrow, violent death and an affront to national or individual pride - very appropriate in terms of 9/11. Unlike the other magic squares, whose seals are planetary and represent planetary objects, the seal of magic square size-31 is the Seal of Silence; governmental, as well as hermetic. The seal is too large and intricate to be reproduced here successfully, but I may include it at some later stage.
Magic Squares are important for use in the creation of ciphers and encryptions, in general. As such they may have been invaluable to secret service agencies throughout the Cold War, and beyond. I believe that the magic square size-7 was used by Soviet Military Intelligence, at one point, to relay messages that pertained to activity of a paranormal nature.
Due to the fact that much of the information concerning magic squares appearing in this post comes from dream symbolism, I cannot vouch for its empirical authenticity.
