"Dear Akira The Don

Firstly, I'd like to thank you for your writing over the past year. It has been a wonderful and illuminating journey, recently made all the more significant when I stumbled across your PlayLouder archives while searching for The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster (what a band!). How far you have come, young man!

"They're a nasty looking bunch... The sort of people made for rock'n'roll, prison, and little else. And what a fucking racket they make! Breathtaking, menacing, spleen shattering sickness. They should tour with Slipknot. Rock'n'roll should always sound like this. If PlayLouder were a rock'n'roll band, it would be The 80s Matchbox B-Line Disaster, and there is no higher compliment we can offer."

For what it's worth, I am glad you chose to be a rapper rather than a rock 'n' roll band. And if you are sad or unsure at the moment, as you seem to be, you shouldn't be, because as Guy said in your interview, "What an amazing thing. What fucking amazing things are going to happen!" I believe that with all my heart.

So make of this what you will (I am quoting liberally here).

In Hebrew, each letter possesses a numerical value. Gematria is the calculation of the numerical equivalence of letters, words, or phrases, and, on that basis, gaining, insight into interrelation of different concepts and exploring the interrelationship between words and ideas.

The Book of the Law was the base text for Thelema's "English Qaballa": a system of decryption that assigns numerical values to words, following the principles of Gematria as applied to the Torah and the Midrash in the Hebrew Kabbalah. Using the "grid" present on page sixteen of Book Three in Liber Al, researchers discovered a methodology by which they believed the "order and value" of the English alphabet could be discerned and a valid method of assessing value to letters. This system, which can be found related in an excellent introduction by Frater D.T., has many adherents, and there have been some interesting correlations discovered using it in conjunction with Liber Al and other "Class A" A.'.A.'. works. Similarly, there have been numerous other attempts to create an English gematria system, but none have seemed to thusfar reasonably provide correlation to the riddles within the text and function outside the bounds of direct application to Class A texts.

If this makes little sense, perhaps you haven't been keeping up with your friend Jeff Wells' writings of late. I'd refer you to these two posts:




"An interactive and multi-systemic Gematria can be found on this page," writes Jeff, "Words and numbers can be entered here to get an sense of their cryptic value according to the code of the English Qabala (though not necessarily the exact correspondences in The Book of Law). This isn't a particularly serious tool, in part because it's so easy to use, so it should probably carry the disclaimer "for entertainment purposes only." And yet "George Bush" = 137, which corresponds with "White House," "False Christs," "wealth magic" and "espionage.""

It comes up with lots of other interesting things too. I took the liberty of searching two... themes in your work over the past year. The results are as follows.
