It is a Class A paper and students of the mysteries have found it to be one of the more accessible and understandable papers of the A. In this system which is far older than any other extant the supernal sephiroth of Kether, Chokmah and Binah are rectified into one combined supernal Palace, and Yesod and Malkuth are brought together as the first Palace.
Just as the Tree of Life is at the core of Kabbalah, the Seven Palaces is the basis of the Merkabah, and indeed the study of Kabbalah may be considered the enciphered study of the Merkabah because the Tree of Life was derived from the Seven Palaces. These Palaces are not to be confused with the Qlippoth nor the Seven Hells as they are things that were themselves derived in their construction from the Tree of life; and are an averse depiction of the purity and sanctity of the former.
The Seven Palaces Originally, the silence and secrecy that has traditionally surrounded the Seven Palaces was due to a prohibition by Judah the Patriarch  that forbade Jewish people from speaking about the Merkabah. The reasons for the prohibition were likely threefold; there was the Jewish desire to reclaim the land of Israel; there are pantheistic elements of the Seven Palaces such as the Goddess Elat and the Elohim of Hadad on its paths and palaces; and there appears to have been some concern over the spiritual welfare of students to the Merkabah, as evidenced by the stories of Rabbi Akiva and the Pardes.
The silence and secrecy of Occult orders on the matter has another source; either they are wholly ignorant of the Seven Palaces through some break in the proper transmission from adept to adept, or they are seeking to preserve knowledge that they have judged to be proprietorial to the wise; something that is in their view not to be seen with the eyes of the profane. He took it upon himself to create an entirely new syncretic system upon it that was fit for the new Aeon as he saw it.
His own silence about the Seven Palaces may have been because of Oaths to magical orders that he made  , and equally — if he had revealed the Seven Palaces openly to the world at any time after he had published the Book of the Law, he would have given away the solution to the Riddle of Liber Al vel Legis. There is however, no point in keeping something so secret that knowledge of it dies out completely and there is a break in transmission.
Therefore I have absolutely no motivation to keep any of the system secret, and unlike Crowley I have made no oaths to anyone that would prevent me from doing so . Rather — I shall throw it open and let the latter day students of the mysteries have at it, and judge for themselves whether it is an effective vehicle for individual transformation and enlightenment — or not — from their results.
A fellow adept once remarked to me that when it comes to the mysteries, there is little need for formal secrecy as it is the limit of the students understanding that draws a veil of secrecy over matters such as these in any case.
Notes — The Gematria used here is biblical paleohebrew Gematria. Also there is no final values for Ashuri final letters. Also the Isopsephy used here is one that adjusts the Greek letters to match their Paleohebrew counterparts. The cards are keyed to Liber Arcanorum according to the value of their Hebrew letters, with the exception of the Shin and the Tav which appear at the end of the pack according to tradition. The Fool 1 Aleph The Fool0 0.
A, the heart of IAO, dwelleth in ecstasy in the secret place of the thunders. Between Asar and Asi he abideth in joy. Asar on Asi did beget Horus twin brother unto Set. It is attributed to two of the Palaces themselves, at either side of the Seventh Palace.
The Alephs received the influx from the letter Beth above them, for God began the creation of the World with the letter Beth . The influx flows around the circumference to the twin Palaces of the Dalet below which are doors; one opening to allow the spirit to incarnate in the world below the Palace of the final Heh and the other allows the return of the spirit through its door once the earthly body is deceased. Asar is thought to be Osiris, and Asi — Isis.
In the Palaces of the Alephs, they are primal forces that beget Horus the Sun God — dwelling in the central Palace of the Resh and all things on earth. The Voice came from the Silence. Then the One ran and returned. He represents the wisdom and the word of the aeon. This card is attributed to the highest Palace which is the private abode of the creator divinity. In the heavens this Palace corresponds to the Pole Star.
Gematria: The Palace of Beth forms 3 primary gates and 5 small gates from the paths around it. The most important permutation is the number base you intend to use. That determines the limit of how many units are accounted for in each cycle of the base number. Now imagine that each base was a palace, that housed an infinite amount of numbers in each palace. Is there an infinite amount of numbers or is there Seven infinitive amount of numbers? God is not a number.
God just made everything have a number through the very act of perceiving a difference… and even that shall remain a matter of eternal speculation. Are we all just quantum sparks going off in the quantum night of the pre-material world? Is every man and woman a quantum star? Essentially we can only speak in numbers because all other qualia is absent on the subject of God.
Ought said about God is instantly a thing of speculation only. The symbols of divinity and ancestor worship in both the old and new aeons share essentially the same quality; that they insist upon a God or a state of consciousness that cannot be named, nor described through the medium of words nor numbers. There is a semantic employment of the symbol of the veil being cast over something without form, nor measurement nor localized position in time or space.
We can talk around the matter only by making a separation between the creator and the created, and yet that again is a matter of speculation only… the butterfly wing of a quantum fluctuation in the space-time continuum that is everywhere and nowhere and possibly there all at once.
The following is a list of permutations in their logographic placement of the letters in their mathematical relationship to each other, and to the Beth. There is little else to say, because the rest is God, united and at one with the universe; an all pervading, and everywhere experience of consciousness itself throughout a near infinitely long time period. It is the heavenly Holy of Holies between the abode of the Father and the abode of the son and the Sun.
Its gate value of using all the letters is identical to the gate value of all the palaces when added together; thus representing that everything in the Macrocosm is both begat and extant from the manifestation of divine generation. She is clothed only in the luminous veil of light.
It is important for high initiation to regard Light not as the perfect manifestation of the Eternal Spirit, but rather as the veil which hides that Spirit. It does so all the more effectively because of its incomparably dazzling brilliance.
Thus she is light and the body of light. She is the truth behind the veil of light. She is the soul of light. Upon her knees is the bow of Artemis, which is also a musical instrument, for she is huntress, and hunts by enchantment. Now, regard this idea as from behind the Veil of Light, the third Veil of the original Nothing. This light is the menstruum of manifestation, the goddess Nuith, the possibility of Form.
This first and most spiritual manifestation of the feminine takes to itself a masculine correlative, by formulating in itself any geometrical point from which to contemplate possibility. The third sister is Nephthys who creates in the dark and the silence. In the Palace of the Aleph there is only Isis Asi but the triune goddess is represented on this path. Isis veils herself with light.
Nuit veils herself with the possibility of form and Nephthys veils herself in dense darkness as she creates. When the Gimel 3 is added to the Zayin 7 and to the Palace of the Resh then the gate of Nephthys is revealed: for N. In her heart is Hadit the invisible glory. Ayin is 70 and the path of Ayin transmits the fertile and creative force and fire of the Sun from the Palace of Resh at the axis of the Wheel.
Not alluded to in Liber Arcanorum is the Palace of the Dalet on the right, probably because that would have been either too confusing or too revealing to the student. Traditionally, the Palace on the right is like a weigh station that receives dead souls from the underworld. Terra cotta, earthen-ware; by implication, of earth or earthen. This Palace of Dalet on the left is the doorway for the letter Dalet was a pictogram of a door to Life or Rebirth; where the soul was clothed in the material flesh before entering into the world.
When the Dalet joins with the Resh of the solar barge below then it forms the word DR which means pearl, or mother of pearl in Hebrew. This upper Heh joins Gimel and Zayin on the path. The sign indicates the number 4, because there are 4 letters on the path thus indicated and also because the Universe card is attributed the letter Tav which has the value of 4.
He is Asar between Asi and Nepthi; he cometh forth from the veil. This card is the last of the 3 cards on the path between the Palaces of Beth and Resh. When Resh is united with the Beth 2 through the medium of the Heh 5 this also sums to Aristophanes c. Earth, the Air and Heaven had no existence. Firstly, black winged Night laid a germless egg in the bosom of the infinite deeps of Darkness, and from this, after the revolution of long ages, sprang the graceful Love Eros with his glittering golden wings, swift as the whirlwinds of the tempest.
He mated in the deep Abyss with dark Chaos, winged like himself, and thus hatched forth our race, which was the first to see the light. Therefore he reflecteth the Fool, and the sevenfold veil is reveiled. The Palace of the Aleph is corresponded with the card of the Fool; thus the Charioteer reflecteth the Fool. The amber-coloured cobblestones underneath the Chariot reinforce this earthly facing attribution; to the North are the heavens and to the South is the Earth; so when the spotted horses go forth to the south country in Zechariah we may understand that they are going forth towards the earth.
Note that the red horses travel in no direction! The Bull and the Lion are coloured black like the black horses of Zechariah, and the Eagle and the Man are coloured white like the white horses of the biblical prophet. The inspiration to use Kerubs instead of horses probably came from Ezekiel As for the Wheels, they were cried the wheel in my hearing.
The eleven letters of Abrahadabra suggest the gate of this path, which is She is depicted as a lioness and she is a goddess of healing, but she can be enflamed by bloodshed and so festivals were celebrated at the end of battle to pacify the lust of Sekhet for war and conquest. Mistaking the beer for blood, she became so drunk that she gave up the slaughter and returned peacefully to Ra. This card corresponds to the path of the Yod between the Palace of the Aleph on the right and the Palace of Resh.
Crowley makes an equivalence between the figure of this card and spermatozoa. The figure of the priest resembles the phallus with the hair of streams of semen.
Fortune 20 Kaph Fortune Now then the Father of all issued as a mighty wheel; the Sphinx, and the dog-headed god, and Typhon, were bound on his circumference. Bethsheba Ashe 11th July And now I was entrusted with some of these devastating though priceless secrets. University of California Press.

Liber Arcanorum, Part I
This book is true up to the grade of Adeptus Exemptus. A, the heart of IAO, dwelleth in ecstasy in the secret place of the thunders. Between Asar and Asi he abideth in joy. The lightnings increased and the Lord Tahuti stood forth. The Voice came from the Silence.
Kiktilar A house is where we live by our own choice, a prison cell is where we live without that choice. For Fate was already established. Upon her knees is the bow of Artemis, which is also a musical instrument, for she is huntress, and hunts by enchantment. Also the Priest veiled himself, lest his glory be profaned, lest his word be lost in the multitude.
