tipheret

The Devil does not exist. It is a false name invented by the Black Brothers to imply a Unity in their ignorant muddle of dispersions. A devil who had unity would be a God.
It was said by the Sorcerer of the Jura that in order to invoke the Devil it is only necessary to call him with your whole will. This is an universal magical truth, and applies to every other being as much as to the Devil. For the whole will of every man is in reality the whole will of the Universe. 
It is, however, always easy to call up the demons, for they are always calling you; and you only have to step down to their level and fraternize with them. They will then tear you in pieces at their 
leisure. Not at once; they will wait until you have wholly broken the link between you and your Holy Guardian Angel before they pounce, lest at the last minute you escape. 
The Devil. is, historically, the God of any people that one personally dislikes. This has led to so much confusion of thought that the MASTER THERION has preferred to let names stand as they are, and to proclaim simply that AIWAZ the solar-phallichermetic, Lucifer, is His own Holy Guardian Angel, and .The Devil. SATAN or HADIT of our particular unit of the Starry Universe. This serpent, SATAN, is not the enemy of Man, but HE who made Gods of our race, knowing Good and Evil; He bade .Know Thyself!. and taught Initiation. He is .the Devil. of the Book of Thoth, and His emblem is BAPHOMET, the Androgyne who is the hieroglyph of arcane perfection. The number of His ATU is XV, which is Yod Hé, the Monogram of the Eternal, the Father one with the Mother, the Virgin Seed one with all-containing Space. He is therefore Life and Love. But moreover his letter is Ayin, the Eye; he is Light, and his Zodiacal image is Capricornus, that leaping goat whose attribute is Liberty.

The TEITAN whose number is the number of a man, six hundred and three score and six.unsubdued, consoled by Austral Asia and Panthea, must send forth constant showers of blessing not only upon Man whose incarnation he is, but upon the tyrant and persecutor. His infinite pain must thrill his heart with joy, since every pang is but the echo of some new flame that leaps upon the earth lit by his crime. For the Gods are the enemies of Man; it is Nature that Man must overcome ere he enter into his kingdom. THE TRUE GOD IS MAN. IN MAN ARE ALL THING HIDDEN. Of these the Gods, Nature, Time, all the powers of the universe are rebellious slaves. It is these that men must fight and conquer in the power and in the name of The Beast that hath availed them, the Titan, the Magus, the Man whose number is 666.

THE REVELATION OF JOHN THE DIVINE
CAP 13

1 And I saw a beast rise out of the sea, having seven heads, and ten horns, and 
upon his horns were ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 
2 And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet like a bear, and his 
mouth as the mouth of a lion; and the dragon gave him his power and his throne, 
and great authority. 
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death, but his deadly wound 
was healed, and all the world wondered and followed the beast.
4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast, and they 
worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to war 
with him? 
5 And there was given unto him a mouth, that spake great things and 
blasphemies, and power was given unto him, to do two and forty months. 
6 And he opened his mouth unto blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his 
Name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the Saints, and to overcome 
them, and power was given him over every kindred, and tongue, and nation. 
8 Therefore all that dwell upon the earth, shall worship him, whose names are 
not written in the book of life of the Lamb, which was slain from the beginning of 
the world. 
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear. 
10 If any lead into captivity, he shall go into captivity; if any kill with a sword, 
he must be killed by a sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the Saints. 
11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth, which had two horns 
like the Lamb, but he spake like the dragon. 
12 And he did all that the first beast could do before him, and he caused the 
earth, and them which dwell therein, to worship the first beast, whose deadly 
wound was healed. 
13 And he did great wonders, so that he made fire to come down from heaven 
on the earth, in the sight of men, 
14 And deceived them that dwell on the earth by the signs, which were 
permitted to him to do in the sight of the beast, saying to them that dwell on the 
earth, that they should make the image of the beast, which had the wound of a 
sword, and did live. 
15 And it was permitted to him to give a spirit unto the image of the beast, so 
that the image of the beast should speak, and should cause that as many as 
would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 
16 And he made all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to 
receive a mark in their right hand or in their foreheads, 
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of 
the beast, or the number of his name. 
18 HERE IS WISDOM. LET HIM THAT HATH WIT, COUNT THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST, FOR IT IS THE NUMBER OF A MAN, AND IS NUMBER IS SIX HUNDRED THREESCORE AND SIX.

Kabalistically TEITAN = 300 + 5 + 10 + 300 + 50 = 666

Teitan: is the form of the Chaldean SHAITAN, God-Devil of the ancient Sumerians, the Fiery Angel Melek Taus, the God of the Yazidis, whose secret name, according to Crowley, is AIWASS.

The right strength and terrible killing eternally abortions was appointed by the Jews Samuel, from the Eastern Satan, Lucifer by the Latins.
The Lucifer cabal is not an angel cursed and electrocuted; is the angel with fire illuminates and regenerates; are the angels of peace as the comet to the quiet stars of the spring constellations.
The fixed star is beautiful, radiant and calm; drinks are heavenly aromas and love watching the sisters in bright clothing, the front adorned with diamonds; smiles singing his song in the morning and evening, enjoys an eternal rest that nothing could disturb and proceeds solemnly along the way that the guardians of light have given her.
The rogue comet instead, bloody and disheveled rushes from the depths of the sky, rushes between quiet spheres as a war chariot of a procession of Vestal, dares to face the fiery sword of the guardians of the Sun and, as a bride who seeks the lost groom dreamed in his widows nights, comes up the tabernacle of the king of the day, then escapes exhaling the fires that devour and dragging along a fire; stars pale at his approach, the flocks grazing starry flowers of light prairie sky seem to escape his terrible breath. (…)
The uncreated light, which is the Divine Word, rays, because wants to be seen, and when he says, is light, open your eyes and creates intelligences:
When God said, Let there be light, the intelligence was made and the light appeared.
So Intelligence scattered by God with the breath of his mouth like a star detached from the Sun, took the form of a beautiful angel and the sky greeted him with the name of Lucifer. Intelligence awoke and all are included in hearing these words of the Divine Word: Let there be light!
She felt free because God had ordered her to be, and, raising his head and spread his wings, he replied:
“I will not be slavery.”
“You will be then the pain?” Asked the voice uncreated. “I will be the Liberty” said Light.
“The Pride will deceive you,” continued the voice uncreated “and thou shalt bring forth death.”
“I need to fight against the death to win the Life” still filming the Light created …

Eliphas Levi

In the cabal the number 6 is associated with the sephiroth Tipheret dominated by the sun, in the same plane lies the supreme self, or Guardian Angel. The 6 refers therefore, to the dual nature of the Logos as divine and human; the interlacing of the upright and averse triangles in the hexagram. It is
the first number of Sun, whose last number1 is 666, the number of a man..
The Sun being 6, a square 6 × 6 contains 36 squares. We arrange the numbers from 1 to 36 in this square, so that each line, file, and diagonal adds to the same number. This number is 111; the total of all is 666.

One thing that I usually do when writing about Nocturne is not to focus on the Law –Neutral-Chaos mechanism in contrast to SMT, SMTII, Strange Journey and SMTIV.

Normally Law-Chaos is based on the god vs. devil/anti-god concept which already started with the Zoroastrian faith in which Ahura Mazda represented law and the order and Ahriman/Angra Mainyu represented sin and chaos. The Judeo-Christian faith kinda continued this concept.
The depiction of YHVH and Lucifer in SMT, SMTII, SMTIV and Strange Journey also shares similarities with Paradise Lost which portrays God as a tyrant and the devil as originally not having bad ideas however being consumed with pride.

Nocturne however is rather philosophical, slightly Nietzsche like.
In contrast to SMTII which takes place in a lawful world and with Aleph inserts you into Jesus’ role and his conflicts with strict law followers in a futuristic Jerusalem with the Tokyo Millennium, Nocturne takes place in a chaotic world inspired by the Revelation and uses small bits of Japanese mythology:.

(for example Kagutsuchi who killed Izanami and basically was the deity which kinda brought death to the world according to Japanese mythology since Izanami ended up in Yomi due to him.
The term Magatsuhi which derives from two deities created from the filth that had been washed away by Izanagi when he returned from Yomi which became two gods, Yasomagatsu Hinokami and Ohomagatsu Hinokami.
Izanami and Izanagi also appear in the game as spirits etc.)

As for the Kotowari/Reasons:
