The sacred unspeakable name of God

God's name

This mystic sound is covered in a shroud of mistery, rapped in an enigma and served in a puzzle. This is a technical article, not a religious one.

This name has obvious religious considerations and forms I shall not be considering here and thus means that in spite of what is written next, it's not my aim to disprove anything, just to further elaborate on the ancient meaning of this formula.

So, what's it and what does it really mean and why can only holy man speak it?

Let us cut trough many missinterpretations. And again, let's get things straight from mearly a magickal perspective mystical point of view.

So, under this particular context we have that: 

- First, it's not a name. It's a formula. Of creation.
- Second, it can only be "spoken" if you know what it means.
That's why is said holy man did so in silence (it's a mental word).
- Third, it's not forbidden for the sake of forbiddeness.

Forbidden because the knowledge was out of reach to most, it was hidden, like cutting edge war technology nowadays. And this name, this word has power, unlimited power. That religion has got very right.

Lets refine.

Why can it be only spoken by holy man?

It's true that this is indeed one of the conditions.
But holy is not what you think. It was the modern equivalent of a cientist, someone with knowledge. Thus meaning that many non-knowledgeable could utter the sacred name over and over again and it's effect would always be null and that is equally true nowadays. It's like trying to master a ruller, just by holding and looking at it indefinitely, but without notions of geometry and expecting to build a palace.

And as of this name, or word, it's not a matter of sound but of meaning, deep meaning that must be conveyed using all senses. Thus only someone who knows the meaning of the name and "speaks" it with all senses involved is actually pronouncing the "forbidden" name, using it's "mind" technology. And meaning here is not one you'd find at a dictionary.

Why is it forbidden?

It's not forbidden per se.
Forbidden here means that knowing it is not enough. Thus, uttering it will be of no effect except if you have evolved a specific set of mind skills, thus meaning, have become holy.

Holy here, again, means a clear knowledge of the working of the mind and the mental universe (which begets reality).

How can one be holy?

It takes time, discipline, knowedge and very hard practice and it's way too much to even just grasp on the surface on this article.

Let me just state that you need to know how your unconscious mind communicates and that most people spend all day doing it wrong and getting painful existential results on that account.

Meditation is a good start, but meditation alone may proove insuficient. Meditation serves not to quiet the mind, but to search for information. Quiet mind is a necessary means to an end, which meditation techniques achieve, but not it's the end itself.

There are at least 32 very concrete metaphors in which to meditate with all senses that help bring higiene to your thought processes and make you able to trully communicate with this "Force" within you.

These are metaphores you must detect by reflex everytime they reveal themselves in mind and in physical reality. That's what ancient holy men and philosophers meant by communicating with the Gods.

Although discredited by the ignorant and by deluded fools who claim expertise on them, these metaphors are profoundly represented in a Tarot deck, which serves not for divination, except if by "divination" you mean conecting with the Divine within you, and that would imply you knowing all the symbolic meaning of each particular representation within the representations, in the card.

These metaphores of the language of the unconscious are also represented in the astral combination of zodiac signs and heavenly body influences, again, allegories, symbols, coding language of the mental world, a map to within.

How to interpret and learn that language is material for other articles. Usually, doing so, makes you a better human to the point people find you peculiar. Not crazy. Not in coo coo land. Just peculiar. In a charismic way. And at this point, you'll have no beliefs, and nothing to sell except freedom.

What's God's name then?

Ok... :-)...  Wait for wait... I.A.O.U.E.

Yep, I know it sounds familiar. But, magickally, here the spelling is important, again: I-A-O-U-E.

Five vowels, which is no accident. The hebrew YHVH has it's own esoterical formulaic meaning, very identical, which is not addressed by this article but I may do so in a future one.

Generally, in the West, consonants rap around vowelish content, giving it form, but it's vowels in between that provide substance. Read this metaphorically.

I.A.O.U.E. is the formula of creation, manifestation, manipulation of reality.
As you can read in previous articles of mine, everything begins with conscious will being implanted in the unconscious which then, by means of unfortold processes, manifests in physical reality within it's laws (time being of the most concert to... er... most).

Everything is perception. Perception therefore is everything.
This formula further enriches the grasp on the creation process. It's mental.
Let's make some computer parallels. :-)

I.A.O.U.E. - Creation

"I." stands for air, the formless substance. Pure consciousness, Mind in blissfull quiet form, complete awareness. It represents all potential, possibility, the raw material. In computer tech jargon this would be the #undefined, it's not nothing, nor zero, an uncreated existing space in memory allocatable to infinity which appears to be void, nothing yet exists in or of it but it itself "is". Computer geeks should immediatly understand this. :-)

"A." stands for fire, the Will. This is what is going to get seeded in the uncouscious, it's the conscious archetype of what's about to manifest into physical reality. Fire represents it's strenght and disruptive power, it's law. It's what us computer geeks refer to as #coding. There can be no errors in coding for there are laws of coding, language of coding, which refers me back to a few paragraphs above when I briefly spoke of the language of the unconscious. If you don't know it's code, you'll be programming gibberish. Garbage in, garbage out, another familiar motto to any computer technology afficcionado.

"O." stands for water, emotion, energy. If you read my previous articles, somewhere along I speak of a strong emotion being crucial to implement an idea in the unconscious mind. In computer terms this would equate to "compiling", transforming the rationaly interpreted order code into a oceanic mesh of apparent chaos of optimized machine code in order to be able to run much faster, in multiple parallel processes and operating system scenarios, making the code portable to inject in other systems without going through primordial creation (the archetype, the source code) again.

"U." stands for spirit, thus being the system itself in which the code will run. Without a complete system, code means nothing. In Computer Science terms this would be the "hardware" plus the computing process, but more in a "cloud" kind of way, non local, distributed, subjective, but All there is, and all is It, however, appearing modular, individualized, objective.

"E." stands for earth. Manifestation, reality. Physical reality. In computer terms, it's the output result. This output then becames part of the system itself which has to process it in further iteractions, thus being the rough equivalent of a recursive system, computing ad eternum, whereas the whole reflects the tiny and the tiny reflects the whole. As above, so below.

How to pronounce it?

The vowels meaning described above give a clue. There's symbols of all kinds, colors, sounds, flavours, imagery, people, contexts that represent each stage and proper coding.

Meditating on the cycle it encodes helps to reveal it's full sensorial and mental correct "speech". It's called the "kabalistic pronounciation" or, more currently, the magic words (we now know that is meaning, full sensorial/mind meaning that has power, not the words themselves), so often done in Harry Potter and those magical Arabian tales of many nights.

Why is it sacred? Can we speak it?

Everything you see and feel around went through this magickal "spoken" word process, so we're doing it all the time, just not aware and hence, not exactly manifesting in according to True Will.

It's sacred because it's knowledge. Sacred means something that works, almost as nowadays we say "it's science". The scientific method has yet difficulties in measuring and repeting experiences that include the realm of thoughs, of mind, but that's were God (goes by many names) is to be found.


Deviating from the technical context I hope it's clear now that Religion used to be a source of the utmost power. And I'm very sad to have to say "used to be". Of course, one can't generalize and I only did so for the sake of drama.

Having said that I have the most high respect for all forms of beliefs and religions, because, I should know, there's nothing more powerful than belief.
