 It represents Sakti,or Teh; femininity always means form, manifestation. The masculine Siva, or Tao, is always a concealed force.
 The letters Aleph and Lamed are infinitely important in this Aeon of Horus; they are indeed the Key of the Book of the Law. No more can be said in this place than that Aleph is Harpocrates, Bacchus Diphues, the Holy Ghost, the "Pure Fool" or Innocent Babe who is also the Wandering Singer who impregnates the King's Daughter with Himself as Her Child; Lamed is the King's Daughter, satisfied by Him, holding His "Sword and Balances" in her lap. These weapons are the Judge, armed with power to execute His Will, and Two Witnesses "in whom shall every Truth be established" in accordance with whose testimony he gives judgment.
 In the symbolism above outlined, Yod is the Mercurial "Virgin Word", the Spermatozoon concealing its light under a cloke; and Mem is the amniotic fluid, the flood wherein is the Life-bearing Ark. See A. Crowley "The Ship", The Equinox I, X.

 The XI° O.T.O. is a rite which employs sodomy (either with a man or a woman). The whole paragraph contains veiled allusions to different aspects of this rite, which Crowley used in The Paris Working (see The Great Beast).

Harpocrates is the "wandering seed", i.e. this god of silence typifies gestation. The dove in the poem of Catullus does likewise through its connection with Aleph, air or spirit, i.e. seed. Crowley uses astrological and tarotic symbols to indicate in a concealed way a sexual act, but one in which creation is baulked. The use of this formula for other than magical purposes was frowned upon by Crowley; hence his denunciation of it as "an abomination".
