KHU HRU - a brief analysis

KHU HRU - a brief analysis

by Fra. Xenos XXIII

Throughout the latter half of the 1980s I have been working constantly with the cosmic forces known as the Old Ones, gleaning scraps of intuitive knowledge here and there. One particularly enticing reward of such work has been the persistent reference in visions and dreams to a Grimoire known to me as 23 NAILS a "book" or repository of formulae related to, or a part of, the so-called NECRONOMICON.

As far as I can ascertain. 23 NAILS is an "astral document" that translates on the Yesodic plane to a series of visions of cosmically ancient cities, each city being in itself a sprawling, sentient entity. Penetrating into this "cities" of which there are 23) requires a "rending of the veils" using the "Nail" to open the gateway. (The Nail can be considered here as being interchangeable with the sword a more traditional symbol of the power of analysis). Once the gateway has been rended open, the vision of the city proceeds...

One such vision I received showed a titanic, (organic?) city-entity whose centre was a colossal tower, from which radiated tentacular roads and Labyrinthine, crumbling streets, populated by robed, batrachian figures. This "city" was called KHU (tun-um) HRU; a name of the entity, and also its magical formulae. Here follows a brief analysis...


The Chaldæan Oracles of Zoroaster

The Chaldæan Oracles of Zoroaster

If thou extendeth the Fiery Mind to the work of piety, thou wilt preserve the fluxible body.

186. The number nine is divine, receives its completion from three triads, and attains the summits of theology, according to the Chaldaic philosophy as Porphyry informeth us.

187. In the left side of Hecate is a fountain of Virtue, which remaineth entirely within her, not sending forth its virginity.

188. And the earth bewailed them, even unto their children.

189. The Furies are the Constrainers of Men.

190. Lest being baptized to the Furies of the Earth, and to the necessities of nature (as some one of the Gods saith), you should perish.

191. Nature persuadeth us that there are pure Dæmons, and that evil germs of Matter may alike become useful and good.

192. For three days and no longer need ye sacrifice.

193. So therefore first the Priest who governeth the works of Fire, must sprinkle with the Water of the loud-resounding Sea.

194. Labour thou around the Strophalos of Hecaté.

195. When thou shalt see a Terrestrial Dæmon approaching, Cry aloud! and sacrifice the stone Mnizourin.

196. If thou often invokest thou shalt see all things growing dark; and then when no longer is visible unto thee the High-arched Vault of Heaven, when the Stars have lost their Light and the Lamp of the Moon is veiled, the Earth abideth not, and around thee darts the Lightning Flame and all things appear amid thunders.

197. From the Cavities of the Earth leap forth the terrestrial Dog-faced demons, showing no true sign unto mortal man.

198. A similar Fire flashingly extending through the rushings of Air, or a Fire formless whence cometh the Image of a Voice, or even a flashing Light abounding, revolving, whirling forth, crying aloud. Also there is the vision of the fire-flashing Courser of Light, or also a Child, borne aloft on the shoulders of the Celestial Steed, fiery, or clothed with gold, or naked, or shooting with the bow shafts of Light, and standing on the shoulders of the horse; then if thy meditation prolongeth itself, thou shalt unite all these Symbols into the Form of a Lion.

199. When thou shalt behold that holy and formless Fire shining flashingly through the depths of the Universe: Hear thou the Voice of Fire.


220 = Aeon of Babalon


878 = And in the heart of the star is an exceeding splendour
878 = Stabat Crux juxta Lucem. Stabat Lux juxta Crucem.

And there is writing in Greek above that. The word "nox" written in Greek, and a circle with a cross in the centre of it, a St. Andrew's cross. —The Cry of the 6th Aethyr, Which is Called MAZ

eww! St Andrew's Cross spider

Some say that book was written on parchment, while others say it was engraved on a sapphire. How was that sapphire read? Adam held it up to his eyes, and the flame burning inside that sapphire took the form of the letters, so Adam could read them there. —Book of Raziel

Today the historical territory of Rus, in the broadest sense, forms part(s) of the territories of Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, a small part of north-eastern Slovakia and a narrow strip of eastern Poland ... Red Ruthenia, small strip in Poland (Przemysl), rest part of Ukraine (Galicia). Poland called the area the Ruthenian Voivodship. —Ruthenia

Karol Józef Wojtyla was born on 18 May 1920 in Wadowice (annexed by Austria and incorporated into the newly-established Kingdom of Galicia).

Ukraine is a republic in eastern Europe which borders Russia to the east, Belarus to the north, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary to the west, Romania and Moldova to the southwest and the Black Sea to the south. It is the largest country wholly in Europe, with a population of about 48 million people ... Various Slavic etymologies have been suggested for the name. Most translate it as "borderland" or "frontier" (compare Krajna, Krajina - in Polish, or Okraina in Russian) and also "country" (compare Krayina in Ukrainian and Kraina in Belarusian). Other more legendary ethymologies trace the name to a verb meaning, "to cut" (krayaty), indicating the land the Rus' people (or Ruthenians or Ukrainians) carved out for themselves; some take it to mean "homeland" or "one's own land" ("Kray").

someone recently told me about Stephen King's The Dark Tower (series) and how King was influenced by Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came by Robert Browning and The Song of Roland. The Tower is the nexus of existence or the universe (All-World is the universe known as "Keystone Tower" ... the only universe in the multi-verse that contains the Dark Tower in its true physical form). the last gunslinger, Roland, resumes a quest to find the dark tower because his world seems to be falling apart. interestingly (as far as i can figure out) the tower appears as a rose in new york city in another world.

my friend told me of the rose in The Dark Tower & how the rose in the 14th æthyr (The Vision & The Voice) dovetails well with Roland's story. i love this stuff: searched & discovered the Pre-Raphaelite BrotherhoodEdward Burne-Jones did a drawing of Browning's poem:

At this period Browning still suffered from public neglect, his work being considered difficult, but despite, or perhaps because of this, he was passionately admired by Rossetti, Burne-Jones and their circle. Rossetti introduced Burne-Jones to Browning in July 1856. Browning, Burne-Jones wrote the following year, was ‘the deepest and intensest of all poets’, and they met again in Italy in 1859, Burne-Jones probably benefiting from Browning’s knowledge of Italian pictures. Nonetheless, the relationship between the drawing and its literary source is complex. While the mood of Browning’s poem is deeply introspective, Burne-Jones adopts a heraldic, decorative approach, even introducing a gravity-defying scroll inscribed with the title. Equally, he replaces the poem’s terrifyingly barren landscape with nothing less than a riot of sunflowers. In her Memorials, Lady Burne-Jones described how carefully he studied these in preparation for the drawing. In fact Childe Roland is one of the earliest examples of the sunflower motif which was to play such a prominent part in the Aesthetic Movement. {Extract taken from Watercolours and Drawings, Cecil Higgins Art Gallery by Evelyn Joll}

also discovered The Black Watch-Tower in The Temple of Solomon the King and {1} learned about the noneagram unicursal, {2} Nonagram (compare numogram), and {3} Star Figures. i always knew the stars i keep drawing could be explained mathematically—just never found the math that explained them.

all this inspired me to start thinking of the Star of Babalon. first, i drew it in blood, then during the funeral i created the graphic. i was watching tv at the time & the priest singing the nicene creed (i think) in latin was the most powerful moment for me. writing this i'm trying to remember what got me so interested in Babalon in the first place. Crowley & Parsons. Phil Hine (Invoking Babalon, Occult Homophobia). Biroco's KAOS 14 & KAOS 13 describing his KAOS-BABALON working. for some odd reason, a couple of years ago, i was searching for a four and a seven. i found an image of the seven palaces (not this one, or this one, but that's the general idea). discovered Jacob's Wheel the next day. i've studied that system in great detail & admire its elegance. just wish there was more Babalon there.

what would the symbol of Babalon look like? this got me thinking, as i've been writing this for a few hours, about the AEON OF BABALON (very surprised to see it equal 220 in alphanumeric qabala). is there such a thing? is that really loopy shit? found Leah Hirsig's magical record {1}{2}{3}{4} at scarletwoman.org where she writes: To become the Babalon I need to be {2}. Hirsig performs a series of 11 invocations of RA-HOOR-KHUIT {1} Hear me, Thou Lord of the Double Wand of Power. Unto Thee do I eat this cake of light, that it may breed lust and power of lust in me.

i'm reading Double Wand of Power (Word doc) & also posted earlier a short article i found today: HRU = the oracular intelligence of the Tarot, the Lord of the double Wand of Power. According to Grant HRU is the "Watcher in the Tower ... enclosed within the Sign of the Elder Gods ... the Watchtower (is) situated in the 'Desert of Stars, not far from the Temple of Babalon'".

how does the "transfer" or "dawning" of a new aeon occur? i'll find more links of women doing Babalon workings. but, here are my two favorite "Babalon" sites for now: Gateways To Babylon & Babalon.net.

For some years now, the North has been constructed as a sort of "future territory", an imagined belonging, an experiment in postmodern territoriality whereby a region is being politically produced, communicated as politically relevant. Academics and politicians compete in constructing and floating visions of a European North that anticipate and even generate reality. —The_Blank_Space, Sergei Medvedev


NAMMAMAD is Zone 8 Neptune. Numeric Keypad direction: North.

Both numerically and figurally, eight is associated with perfection (in the sense of macrocosmic completion and return). These are particularly notable in the East, where obvious references include the Buddhist eightfold path, and the eight immortals of Taoism. The number eight - particularly in its triplicate reiteration (888) is considered an especially auspicious number in Chinese culture. —Zone 8

AQ 888 = Get thee back from the Urn; thy ashes are not hidden here. —6th Aethyr

The Eighth Gate (Gt-36) connects Zone-8 to Zone-9, and the corresponding Channel is the sole path of escape from the Torque - or 'Time-Circuit' - into the Plex. Due to its digital cross-match with the 6+3 Syzygy (occupying the Warp-region of the Numogram, and carried by the Xenodemon Djynxx (6::3)) the Eighth Gate seems to address what Stillwell has called the 'ultimate numogrammatic enigma' - that of the intercommunication between the Warp and Plex regions. This linkage is crucially emphasized in the culture of Tzikvik shamanism, and - under the name 'Gate of Charon'- is taken-up into Late-Atlantean apocalypticism (since its digital sum (36) itself cumulates to 666, and thus echoes the number of Seals to the Great Abyss (long associated with the thirty-six cards of the Decadence pack)).


Yet, Thou hast said: "I love you! I yearn to you! Pale or purple, veiled or voluptuous, I who am all pleasure and purple, and drunkeness of the innermost sense, desire you: Come unto me!" —31 Hymns To the Star Goddess, Fr. Achad (Charles Stansfield Jones)

Put on the wings, and arouse the coiled splendour within you: come unto me! ... Sing the rapturous love-song unto me! Burn to me perfumes! Wear to me jewels! Drink to me, for I love you! I love you! I am the blue-lidded daughter of Sunset; I am the naked brilliance of the voluptuous night-sky. To me! To me!

Also I was in the spirit vision and beheld a parricidal pomp of atheists, coupled by two and by two in the supernal ecstasy of the stars. They did laugh and rejoice exceedingly, being clad in purple robes and drunken with purple wine, and their whole soul was one purple flower-flame of holiness. They beheld not God; they beheld not the Image of God; therefore were they arisen to the Palace of the Splendour Ineffable. A sharp sword smote out before them, and the worm Hope writhed in its death-agony under their feet. Even as their rapture shore asunder the visible Hope, so also the Fear Invisible fled away and was no more. O ye that are beyond Aormuzdi and Ahrimanes! blessèd are ye unto the ages. They shaped Doubt as a sickle, and reaped the flowers of Faith for their garlands. They shaped Ecstasy as a spear, and pierced the ancient dragon that sat upon the stagnant water. Then the fresh springs were unloosed, that the folk athirst might be at ease. —Liber Cordis Cinti Serpente
