    Guess that’s a note for all of us going forward, Egyptian symbols seem to be somewhat important going forward. Keep an eye out for some at any possible event you attend.

    Ankh, eye, pyramid… possible man in pyramid… yeah Darren “Illuminati” gotcha. Toward Bryan and his SXSW thing just posted where he mentioned that as well.

    @jay956 Aleister Gordon was an account that was used intermittently throughout Tension. It was a sort of secondary account that some people spoke with and was used to sometimes deliver hints and clues to us that wouldn’t be done through the main Tension account

    Let’s see if I can do photos on here. It might not be anything but everything is something, right? Aleister Crowley was known to wear an Eye of Horus within a pyramid surrounded by a sunburst as ceremonial attire for The Golden Dawn.

    @pandace88 – On second viewing, looks like it was posted to The Lust main FB page.

    Perhaps I was mistaken on its source.

    @thegilded Quite common for Aleister to post the same thing as the main Facebook account so could be that it was originally on Gordon’s account but got deleted (which seems to be a new trend with social media posts…)

    Something else here. The symbols on the book: eye, breadcone (the pyramid), ankh… a rough translation, and please forgive a poor grasp of typing Egyptian phoenetics, would be “ir-di-nh” or “to make to give life.”

    It was suggested to me by someone who is a student of Egyptian history that the symbols on the spine represent. As quoted by her:

    “That is a bad omen – it’s Irkmunuk – black death – disease. Could also mean something dying on stone, or by fire. But yes, as a whole. It’s not a word, it’s a concept. google Ir, Kemet, Ankh if you want to break it down. What is important is the the kemet is to the left of the ankh.”

      @meghanmayhem Wow that’s awesome, you have some valuable sources on your team! I had no idea any of that is even how Egyptian hieroglyphs (if they even count as hieroglyphs) worked. I think @thegilded is right on when he suggests that Egyptian symbols or something we’re gonna be seeing a lot more of in the future. Keep your Egyptologist friend on standby!

    Is the word “motel” written on the sheet there along the fold? It looks like sharpie – it’s weird, though, right?

    Also, images seem to be the Eye of Horace, an Ankh, and… well, a triangle. Each of these have a meaning in isolation, but I don’t know the significance of them when placed in that particular arrangement… I will defer to the expertise of Meghan’s Egyptologist friend, though.

    More input from sources:

    “Is there anything masonic involved in the game? Because Thelema repurposed a lot of egyptian symbolism as well.
    Among the Egyptians, the darkness through which the candidate for initiation was made to pass was symbolized by the trowel, an important Masonic implement, which, in their system of hieroglyphics, has the form of a triangle. The equilateral triangle they considered as the most perfect of figures, and a representative of the great principle of animated existence, each of its sides referring to one of the three departments of creation, the animal, vegetable, and mineral.”

    Not a crazy theory, a “perfect self”

    I would also defer to @meghanmayhem‘s colleague before any of my cobbled together research. Go to!

    Maybe the compound because it was torched to the ground? Who/what/when is the Phoenix and when will he/she/it rise?

    Mr. Crowley was a very known cult leader, disciple of the occult, practician of magick. Not the account, the real man. Upon googling him you will find he did tons of occult rituals near or in the pyramids of Egypt. He also founded Thelema in which he “was the prophet that would guide humanity into the aeon of horus”.

    @mike Rebirth by fire?
    “This fire does not burn what we are, but simply all that we are not”

    Again, the translation is not a promised answer. It’s a suggestion of interpretation. Several of the people I asked seem to be struggling with the meaning behind that particular triangle.
    The thing everyone seems to agree on is this:

    “Egyptians believed that one’s earthly journey was only part of an eternal life, the ankh symbolizes both mortal existence and the afterlife. The eye above the other two can mean it’s “watching over” whatever is below it, whatever it transpiring and transitioning.”

    Sothic Triangle

    Thanks!
    Reading up on the Sothic Triangle is really quite interesting!

    Okay, so now this is getting super “new agey”, but I found something that links the Sothic Triangle (which is the hieroglyph for the constellation Sirius and symbol of eternal light) to Aleister Crowley, the eye of Horus, and the word PHOENIX (also symbol of constellation Sirus and secret password for the Freemasons as well). And tantric sex.

      @sfire8, it’s worth considering that “super new agey” could be the point. I mean, it’s Noah. Dude is arguably not a master of occult wisdom. He’s exactly the kind of huckster who thrives on throwing out a handful of mystic symbols, letting us dive into rabbit holes of our own creation, and find our own esoteric truths — truths he can sit back and take credit for. It’s one of the oldest grifts in the book, the wise master who lets his students do all the work.

    Since DLB said LUST was about sex, I’m feeling like Noah (and his quantum physics/Egyptian philosophy) might possibly try to achieve enlightenment/power though sex/sexual energy…it all seems related.

    Honestly, that sounds like a much better direction than the biblical approach.

    @sfire8 Aleister Crowley. Now you have piqued my interest. The black mass would be an excellent tie into the OOA. I think DLB mentioned that LUST was going to be about Sex – Dark and nefarious!

    Late to the “game” here, but @meghanmayhem were did your friend get “kemet” from this? The symbols appear to be “ir-di-ankh” the second one being.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bread-cone_(hieroglyph). di-ankh is commonly seen together and usually means: “gives life”. Ir is an eye and means “to see” or something like that depending on context.

    I could be completely wrong here given that it could be a complete word (and not three separate words).

    Kemet means black (km) but could also just mean Egypt (km.t) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Km_(hieroglyph)
