What does 440 mean to you?

I wouldn’t usually discuss this, as it is a very personal thing, but I recebtly wrote an essay on the importance of names and Magickal oaths, and prior to posting it, I think it would be okay to share it -

440 is the Magickal oath/motto that I took as a Probationer in the A.’.A.’. proper. It is the Gematrical enumeration of a phrase that was said to me by my first official teacher Frater 939.’.; “Change is Stability, stability is change”. I didn’t understand the meaning of this phrase until the time I took my first oath within the initiated A.’.A.’. - it reflected my understand of myself and Magick, and ny understanding of the Universe at the time. So I decided to translate and simplify the phrase into latin, which gave me ‘Motus et stabili tatem’ - this enumerates to the number 268, which means 'stones of the sling’ in Liber 777, and then the english simplification calculated to 172, meaning 'cut’, 'divided’ and 'clusters of grapes’ - all of these meanings attributed through Gematria, had relevance to the phrase itself, and also are well attributed to the chapter of Liber LXV that I chose to memorize (although I only realised this some time after).

So 268 and 172 make 440, which in Liber 777 has the attributions 'collaudatio’ (meaning warm praise, commendation and eulogy in Latin), 'The Great Dragon - “curls”’ (The Dragon being my chosen Asana), 'irreproachable; perfect’. When taken altogether 440 truely took on a very philosophical and physical meaning, during the course of my Probationers’ period I was incarcerated (for a driving offence) which taught me so much about the real meanings behind 440 (the only books I had access to during my first few months whilst there was my personal A.’.A.’. copy of The Holy Books of Thelema, Liber 777 and several Buddhist sutras that I recieved whilst studying with the Buddhist meetings held by HMP.) Became very apparent and of great help. Whilst undergoing several other personal ordeals and great changes during this time I realised that when you take an oath, it becomes a very real thing, names hold great power and when you take a Magickal oath/motto, be prepared as it is no light thing!

Hence I used 440 for this blog too, as 440 was my practical starting point, and probably one of the most important things I have come to understand, so I thought it relevant to use it as my starting point in all things, and to share it with all and any who have interest.

This is as short and sweet as I can keep the explanation, but I hope it does an okay job of showing the import 440 has for me, and why I have chosen it to share.

Q: You must be tired of being on planes....
  • Hoya: We have our own way of having fun [on planes]. We like to play around alot. Before lift off, we like to pull the sheets on the seats that are next to us and then we tattle on them to the stewardesses.
  • Sungkyu: The stewardessed don't really like it. There are lots who just think it's cute and brush it off and there are some who yell at us. I hope they understand that it's just our little way of playing and we mean no harm.
  • Sungyeol: The ramen you eat on the planes are the best! It's standard to eat it twice. First when you have lifted off and second when the person next to you is eating it; you smell it and eat it over again. And the ice wine!
  • Woohyun: That is really tasty [referring to what SY said]. The wine they had on the plane was good so we bought it and drank it at the dorm together.
  • L: I sleep. No matter what, I sleep. You can think of it as: if it's a 14 hour flight, I sleep about 11 hours.
  • Sungkyu: I thought he was a bear hibernating in the winter.
  • Dongwoo: There was a time I watched 4 movies throughout the flight. But, OOOAirlines didn't update [their movie list]...
  • Hoya: I've been studying English these days and I watch some movies without the subtitles. If I look at English, I fall asleep in 30 minutes...
  • Woohyun: I watch Korean movies with English subtitles and check to see if they were translated correctly.

Kris Straub wanted to talk about how tv shows portray hacking, computers, and video games. Here’s what we learned: CBS does a wonderfully poor job.

1. Scorpion’s plane hacking.

2. Gears of War has been hacked on CSI NY!!

3. Four hands are better than two when it comes to keyboards on NCIS. 

4. Numb3rs doesn’t know what IRC is.

5. Maybe CSI NY understands Second Life? 


You can watch the full panel here and listen to our funny banter over these videos!

Disappointed, but not in Bernie. Disappointed in our whole rigged system. Disappointed that millions did not have the opportunity to vote due to superfluous rules, or not switching parties in time (like in NY).

I understand the anger and frustration; I feel it too.

Bernie has fought for the working class, for the environment, for senior citizens, for veterans, for his whole life. To dismiss a lifetime of his efforts based on his endorsement of Clinton seems misplaced. This man has fought so hard for us and done so much. He’s sparked a flame that will not be extinguished. It’s up to us now. The revolution continues.
