The theory of Magick Squares is a very old one.

NEMO. This square adds up to 516, the number for MIKA-SOESA meaning "the mighty savior within." Also 516=129x4 where 129 is the number for MOZ which means, "joy." Furthermore, 516= 12x43 where 43 is the number for BALT-ZA meaning "in justice." AIK BKR reduces 516 and 129 to
12 which reduces to 3, "the son or sum of one" (the supernal father) and "two" (the supernal mother). This is the square of NEMO, the Magister Templi or Master of the Temple.
AMMA. This square adds to 625 which is the number for YRPOIL-TELOKH meaning "the separation of death." Also 625=25x25 where 25 is the number for BESZ, matter. The word AMMA means "cursed," MTIF can mean "a visit like no other," MIRE can mean "a visitation of torment," and AFFA means ""empty."This square em-
bodies the idea of the inherent limitation and mortality of matter and of all physical existence. It should be used carefully.
ROR. This square adds up to 524, the number for IALKOMO which means, '^burning windo' and KHR TOANT BESZwhichis, "wheel that unites matter." AIQ BKR
reduces 524 to 2, the number for "Divine Will." ROR is the Enochian word for "the sun" and ODO means "to open." The name of the Egyptian solar god, Ptah, means "the Opener" and this Magick Square expresses the same creative forces that are associated with Ptah This square embodies the forces of the solar current.
