Can anyone explain what this phrase means?

"Zos Kia Cultus is a form, style, or school of magic developed by Austin Osman Spare. It focuses on one's individual universe and the influence of
the magician's will on it. Consequently, it is highly personal.
While the Zos Kia Cultus has very few adherents today, it is widely considered an important influence on the development of western occultism in
general, and the rise of chaos magic in particular.
The meaning of Zos is the whole of the human, involving the whole spectrum of conscious thought. The symbol of Zos is a pentagram, or the five fingers
of the human hand.
Kia refers to the eye, the symbolism of which can be understood either as the gateway to Zos, the self, or a phonetic "I." It is clear from Spare's
writing that how the self is understood is key to the nature of the said self; our perception defines our nature, not the other way around. This is
the key to Zos Kia Cultus."
