Commentary on Liber L vel Legis
This commentary relies heavily on my take on English Qaballah which should be reviewed first. Crowley's role had two related aspects, declaring the Aeon of the Child and acting as the Magus fitting with the letter Chet. The Aeons involve the trinity Father-Mother-Child, Father being divine spirit, Mother material manifestation, and Child particular existence arising from their interplay. In Kabbalistic terms, Ain Soph fits with the Father, the material plane the Mother, and the Tree of Life with the Child. Within the Tree there are a number of ways of assigning these, the most obvious being the Supernals as Father, Malkhut as Mother, and the Zer Anpin as Child. The Aeon of the Mother was pantheistic, fitting with Malkhut. The Aeon of the Father was focused on movement up the Tree, reaching naturally to enlightenment in Binah, further steps involving a focus back down. The Aeon of the Child involves climbing the Tree and then acting from the levels reached, a back and forth that allows all levels to be reached. The specific sequence is discussed in relation to English Qaballah.
Hadit-Nuit-Horus are again Father-Mother-Child, Hadit fitting with the Supernals, Nuit with the lower eight Sephirot, and the forms of Horus being centered around Binah where they meet. This also fits with the Khabs fitting with the Supernals and Khu with the lower eight in terms of the individual. Binah is described as part light and part dark, the light being the light of enlightenment and the dark being the part fitting with the Supernals as reflecting the deeper light of Ain Soph. These two lights are likewise seen in the first two days of the Tibetan Book of the Dead. The light of Binah is embodied in the Shekinah, which is considered to reside in Binah but descend to Malkhut under appropriate circumstances. Nuit is similar, but with an emphasis on Binah as providing the structure within which individuals as stars and their light reside. This fits with Crowley's Magushood fitting with Chet in the sequence of Maguses, Chet's value of eight indicating the lower eight sephirot connected, allowing Malkhut to be transformed to reflect Binah's light. Verse II:78's line "They shall worship your name, foursquare, mystic, wonderful...." seems to refer to the letters of Chet spelled out. Chet's gematria is 418, the 4 coming from Tav, 1 from Yod, and 8 from Chet, and the 41 fitting with the four elemental creatures about the throne, these fitting with Malkhut as fitting with the elements and the throne connecting to Yesod as lower Yod. The it's in the names Nuit, Hadit, and Ra-Hoor-Khuit seem to fit with this, implying grounded energy in contrast to the raw energy of Nu, Had, and Ra-Hoor-Khu.
As discussed elsewhere, the Tree of Life and Olive structures have related fivefold patterns, but with different elemental associations. The use of colors in Liber L relates to these. The colors purple, red, blue, yellow (not mentioned), and green fit with Keter, Chokmah, Binah, Zer Anpin, and Malkhut with a sense that these are structuring things. Note that purple is a combination of red and blue and green of blue and yellow. Lapis Lazuli and Jasper, mentioned in verse I:51, imply Nuit and Hadit reflected in Binah and Chokmah. Scarlet seems to connect Chokmah as fire with Skin as fire and azure Binah as water with Nut as water. Silver and gold reflect parallels drawn between Keter and Malkhut, both of which have a lunar quality and connect the Tree to the Ain Soph and material respectively, and between Chokmah and the Zer Anpin as being between Keter and Binah and between Binah and Malkhut. Gold more specifically fits with the light of Binah and its reflection through the Zer Anpin and may be associated with Zer Anpin as air and Seed as air. Black then fits with Malkhut as earth and Fruit as earth, the Fruit being the part that both obscures the higher parts from the personality and provides the means to ascend to them. Crowley associated with words of Do What Thou Wilt with the letters of YHVH, but they seem to fit better with the corresponding parts of the Olive, Seed-Do, Nut-What, Fruit-Thou, Skin-Wilt.
The names Had and Nu, indicating the raw power of the god-forms, have gematria's 11 and 31. This reflects the fact that Hadit as a god-form is about moving deeper, hence the general formula 11, but Nuit as a god-form is about connection to the material, hence 31 as Nuit acting on the particular. Hadit's genatria of 58 is the same as house, as in "Khabs is the name of my house." implying the Supernals as Hadit's vehicle. Nuit's gematria of 78 implies Binah giving form to the influence of Chokmah and Binah reflecting this through the lower eight sephirot, fitting with the Khu.
There are eight names of Horus in Liber L. Heru-ra-ha is a form of the elder Horus and the deepest aspect in the book. Heru has gematria 58, fitting with the Supernals as Hadit's vehicle as focused through Binah. Ra has gematria 13, the same as do which fits with Chokmah as per Do What Thou Wilt, and as a sun god fits with gold as the light of Binah refleted through the Zer Anpin. Ha has genatria 5, the same as all, fitting with Keter and Malkhut. The total gematria of 76 implies the elder Horus as helping reveal people's inner stars.
Each chapter has a version of the name Harpocrates whose parts follow the same pattern as with Heru-ra-ha. The first part is Hoor in the Nuit and Horus chapters, which has gematria 30 the same as Khu, associating Hoor with the lower eight sephirot, and Heru in the Hadit chapter, fitting with the Supernals. The second part is Pa in the Hadit and Horus chapters, which has gematria 27 implying the individual moved by influence from the Supernals, and Paar in the Nuit chapter, which has gematria 40 implying Hadit's influence manifested. These fit more with the path of Dalet and EM (note the similarity to the names) than Chokmah directly. The third part is Kraat in the Nuit and Horus chapters, which has gematria 47 which reflects Hadit manifesting through the Supernals and is the same as it the last two letters grounding Hadit, Nuit, and Ra-Hoor-Khuit, and Kraath in the Hadit chapter, whose gematria of 51 implies connections to the Ain Soph and material plane. Hoor-pa-kraat has total gematria 104=8x13, implying Chokmah as the do of Do what though wilt and as active force directed through the lower eight. Hoor-paar-kraat has total gematria 117=9x13, the do being absorbed into the prima materia because Nuit allows the Pa to become Paar, an expression of Hadit. Heru-Pa-Kraath has total gematria 136=8x17, Chokmah manifesting through particular reflections of Binah, the Heru shifting the focus from the lower eight to the Supernals and Kraath to direct connection to Ain Soph and the material.
The names Ra-Hoor-Khu, Ra-Hoor-Khut, Ra-Hoor-Khuit fit with the pattern of the parts of the earlier names. Ra fits with Chokmah and Hoor and Khu with the lower eight, apparently implying Horus as intermediary between Chokmah and the individual. This seems to tie to Crowley's somewhat confused notion of the Holy Guardian Angel. The term originally referred to an actual angel acting as guru, but Crowley applied it to Aiwass who is a separate individual and further identified both concepts with the Bornless One, as per Liber Samekh, which refers to a higher aspect of the self acting as self-guru. This seems to relate to Aiwass's unusually close relationship to Horus, which he sought to recreate with Crowley and apparently intended as a model for humanity. Ra-Hoor-Khu's total gematria of 73 implies Binah reflected in the body of Nuit. Khut's T would fit with the four elemental creatures, its gematria of 54 bring the same as four implying the elements and snake implying spiritual understanding of the material, and fits with Pa/Paar's relationship to the path of Dalet and the EM. Ra-Hoor-Khut's total gematria of 97 is the reverse of Abrahadabra's of 79, both of these reducing to 8 via 63 and 18, implying Chokmah as an active force arising between Keter and Binah. Khuit's gematria of 77 is the same as silver, implying Keter and Malkhut, and Ra-Hoor-Khuit's total gematria of 120=2x3x4x5 implies the combined trinity finding means to manifest, a particular individual becoming an acting spiritual agent.
In III:34, it says that after the fall of the Great Equinox, "Hrumachis shall arise, and the double-wanded one assume my throne and place." A mundane equinox being one day out of a season, the Great Equinox would likewise be on the order of 1% of the millennia of an aeon, or a matter of decades. I believe in this regard Horus's transitional role is completed. Hrumachis (Horus as sunrise) and the double-wanded one are distinct figures, as indicated by "blessings no longer be[ing] poured To the Hawk-headed Mystical Lord." This is anticipated in verses III:70-72, III:70 being Hrumachis announcing his appearance, III:71 informing Ra-Hoor-Khuit and Harpocrates that their time in charge is done, and III:72 being the double-wanded one taking over. In this regard, the part about "I have crushed an Universe and nought remains." is strongly suggestive of Shiva's eye opening destroying the world of illusion. Note that the hypothetical name Ra-Khu would have gematria 43, the same as Shiva; Ra-Khut gematria 67, the same as Olive; and Ra-Khuit 90, manifesting action in the prima materia.
Verse I:46 says, "Nothing is a secret key of this law," and the fact that the various related words are to be interpreted as indicating raw potential is key to understanding the deeper meanings of many verses. No has gematria 21 and indicates choices made from a deeper level. Not has gematria 45 and implies possibilities with which Hadit combines to act. The digits 4 and 5 fit with the two parts of Dalet in the initiatory sequence, and not read as a noun would fit with the4 and as a verb with the 5. Verse I:56 says, "Expect him not from the East, nor from the West," associating not and nor with East and West and by extension day and night. Nor has genatria 33 implying possibilities within the body of Nuit as prima materia. Nothing has gematria 97, the same as Ra-Hoor-Khut, implying Chokmah as an active force arising from the Supernals. None has gematria 60, implying the possibilities through which Hadit and Nuit in combination manifest. Nought has gematria 77, the same as silver and Khuit, implying Malkhut as reflecting Keter.
Liber L vel Legis
This has gematria 666 in Hebrew, taking the E's as 5's and the S as 300. In EQ gematria, it has value 187, the same as English Alphabet and son of midnight.
I:1 Had(11)! The(53) manifestation(200) of(25) Nuit(78).
Had invokes the raw power of Hadit in relation to Nuit, enabling the process to begin. The implies the chapter holds the office of manifestation of Nuit. Manifestation's gematria of 200=2x4x25 implies means of creation attract an agent or agents (in this case Aiwass and Crowley in relation to the book) who become expressions of Hadit through them. Of implies the manifestation as allowing expression of Nuit. Of Nuit has total gematria 103, implying the potential within particular experiences of Nuit. Manifestation of Nuit has total gematria 303=3x101, implying that the potential arising between Hadit and Nuit reveals the body of Nuit as prima materia.

The 3 digit of 36, fitting with Nuit, and 4 digit of 46, fitting with Hadit, imply the complementary nature of male and female. And implies that there are spiritual differences between men and women, but is implies that the essential nature of each is to be a star. A implies that each star is a particular part of Nuit's company, this contrasting with the the's used in the previous verses. Star is a relational term, 42=2x3x7 implying the individual connecting Nuit through Binah to her body, thus reflecting Hadit. This contrasts with the term Khabs, which is the star taken as its own individual self. The verse number 3 implies Nuit's manner of connecting to her body.
I:4 Every(87) number(109) is(28) infinite(164); there(90) is(28) no(21) difference(179).
Every again implies all possibilities as potential expressions of the divine. Number's gematria of 109 implies possibilities arising from particulars being part of the prima materia. Is implies the essential nature of numbers is to be infinite, this fitting specifically with reduction by multiplying digits immediately reducing all numbers to 0 if 0 digits are included. Infinite's gematria of 164=4x41 implies Hadit reflected through his endless particular possibilities. There implies the prima materia as the place of action. Is implies that the nature of the prima materia is one of no difference. No implies choices made from a deeper level, by Hadit. Difference's gematria of 179 implies particular experience of heaven's (79 see verse 2) structure, impying that Hadit's choices come from a level deeper than Binah. No difference has total gematria 200, the same as manifestation from verse 1. The verse number 4 implies Nuit's role as manifesting Hadit.
I:5 Help(57) me(46), o(7) warrior(70) lord(27) of(25) Thebes(103), in(37) my(36) unveiling(139) before(107) the(53) Children(99) of(25) men(60)!

In implies that the body of Nuit is the place where Binah's influence is occurring. My has the same gematria as man, implying particular expressions of inspiration. Unveiling implies increasing awareness, as in I:2. In my unveiling implies particular expressions of increasing awareness within the body of Nuit. Before's gematria of 107 implies the potential arising from particular connections to Binah. The implies the Children are potentially inspired individuals. Children implies the potential to participate in the Aeon of the Child, 99=9x11 implying Keter and Malkhut as Hadit and Nuit. Of implies that men, implying incarnate individuals, are the means of the Children's expression. Men's gematria of 3x4x5 implies Hadit and Nuit in combination able to employ individual's possibilities. Children of men's total gematria of 184=8x23 implies the khu as lower 8 as an I reflecting Chokmah. The emphasis in the verse on the relationship between Binah and the body of Nuit may be considered as an elaboration on star's gematria of 42=2x3x7. The verse number 5 implies that individuals in her body are the means through which Nuit acts.
I:6 Be(45) thou(52) Hadit(58), my(36) secret(104) centre(113), my(36) heart(66) & my(36) tongue(98)!

Of implies the minister serves Hoor-paar-kraat. Hoor-paar-kraat is discussed above. Minister of Hoor-paar-kraat has total gematria 289=17x17, implying particular experiences of Binah let the individual express Chokmah in the prima materia. The verse number 7 implies that this is how Nuit connects to her body through Binah.
I:8 The(53) Khabs(39) is(28) in(37) the(53) Khu(30), not(45) the(53) Khu(30) in(37) the(53) Khabs(39).
The implies that the focus is now on the individual experiencing Nuit. Khabs's gematria of 39 implies that connection with the Supernals allows recognition of the body of Nuit as prima materia. The Khabs has total gematria 92, implying the prima materia open to the individual moved by Hadit. Is implies the nature of the Khabs is to be in the Khu, i.e. to incarnate. In's gematria of 37 implies the influence of Binah (expressing the Khabs) in the body of Nuit (through the Khu). Khu's gematria of 30 implies the individual acting in the body of Nuit.
