The efforts you see are intended to enable you to piece together the Philosophy of the Illuminatus, and since profane "Occultism" is as subtle and yet monstrous a fraud as recorded human "history", the exercise oft revolves around providing a plethora of patterns such that when patterns present themselves in the real world, you, too, if you are able to comprehend the patterns, you may exclaim, "aha! I get it!"
And so another illusion falls.
And, seeing how reality has been called an "illusion", one should not be so quick to discount the very revelations as to how such illusions could be crafted. If you are moderately educated into the ways of Gematria, do you really think that a power strong enough to rule over a planet is going to have a system in place that merely "adds up the numbers" to arrive a value, and in the process reveal a series of "esoterically unique significances?"
Seriously. Everything is not so simple, and only the fool, as opposed to the Fool, would presume to come to comprehend the whole of the Construct. Says Plutarch, in "On Isis and Osiris"
"But the robes of Isis they use many times over; for in use those things that are perceptible and ready at hand afford many disclosures of themselves and opportunities to view them as they are changed about in various ways. But the apperception of the conceptual, the pure, and the simple, shining through the soul like a flash of lightning, affords an opportunity to touch and see it but once. For this reason Plato and Aristotle call this part of philosophy the epoptic or mystic part, inasmuch as those who have passed beyond these conjectural and confused matters of all sorts by means of Reason proceed by leaps and bounds to that primary, simple, and immaterial principle; and when they have somehow attained contact with the pure truth abiding about it, they think that they have the whole of philosophy completely, as it were, within their grasp."
The highlights are mine. Understand clear if you wish to proceed. The patterns revealed are as the "Robes of Isis"; each pattern affords a glimpse into the Construct. The ability to grasp clear what is being said is as attaining an "apperception of the conceptual", for the whole is set upon a "conceptual". Once an aspirant is able to see past the confused and befuddling realities that present themselves, and through effort and exercise become able to see the truths that are being contained within, the next step is that it becomes natural for the seeker to believe that he has come to an understanding of the Philosophy and so have it (the Philosophy) "within their grasp".
Just as you think you have achieved such, another permutation presents itself, and you soon learn what little is known of the whole. However, fortunately, there are numerous manifestations and usages of the Robes of Isis, and these guide us to the primary and simple immaterial principle. The Construct is set and crafted against Pi.
Let us begin.
