O! (1)
The Ante Primal Triad which is
NOT-GOD
Nothing is.
Nothing Becomes.
Nothing is not.

The First Triad which is GOD
I AM.
I utter The Word.
I hear The Word.

The Abyss
The Word is broken up.
There is Knowledge.
Knowledge is Relation.
These fragments are Creation.
The broken manifests Light. (2)

The Second Triad which is GOD
GOD the Father and Mother
is concealed in Generation.
GOD is concealed in the whirling energy of Nature.
GOD is manifest in gathering: harmony:
consideration: the Mirror of the Sun and of the Heart.

The Third Triad
Bearing: preparing.
Wavering: flowing: flashing.
Stability: begetting.

COMMENTARY (The Chapter that is not a Chapter)

This chapter, numbered 0, corresponds to the Negative, which is before Kether in the
Qabalistic system.
The notes of interrogation and exclamation on the previous pages are the other two veils.
The meaning of these symbols is fully explained in "The Soldier and the Hunchback".
This chapter begins by the letter O, followed by a mark of exclamation; its reference to
the theogony of "Liber Legis" is explained in the note, but it also refers to KTEIS
PHALLOS and SPERMA, and is the exclamation of wonder or ecstasy, which is the
ultimate nature of things.

COMMENTARY (The Ante Primal Triad)

This is the negative Trinity; its three statements are, in an ultimate sense, identical. They
harmonise Being, Becoming, Not-Being, the three possible modes of conceiving the
universe.
The statement, Nothing is Not , technically equivalent to Something Is, is fully explained
in the essay called Berashith. The rest of the chapter follows the Sephirotic system of
the Qabalah, and constitutes a sort of quintessential comment upon that system.
Those familiar with that system will recognise Kether, Chokmah, Binah, in the First
Triad; Daath, in the Abyss; Chesed, Geburah, Tiphareth, in the Second Triad;
Netzach, Hod and Yesod in the Third Triad, and Malkuth in the Tenth Emanation.
It will be noticed that this cosmogony is very complete; the manifestation even of God
does not appear until Tiphareth; and the universe itself not until Malkuth.
The chapter many therefore be considered as the most complete treatise on existence ever
written.

NOTE
(2) The Unbroken, absorbing all, is called Darkness.
