In Spare's "Death Posture" illustration in the "Book of Pleasure", Set appears in the Sigillic Forumula of the self-descending and ascending through the arcana of the subconscious, the very body of self taking form in Thanatos - The Skull headed God of Death. Set-Typhon himself rises from the Hawk Headed Mask of which the Prince of Darkness wears, ascending above Alpha and Omega (Azoth) and the Primal Body of Woman. Set is summoning the great Pyramid of the Self, the Hand and the Eye (Zos and Kia), in the center the Sun. It is in this aspect that through the self falling into darkness, Set as the rational and strong order making Lord of Chaos (note the opposing and adversarial nature) summons forth by Will the Temple of Azothoz, being the Noon -tide Sun, sacred to Shaitan/Azazel, a form of Set the Adversary. The Death Posture is the varying embrace of death through loosing automatic control, falling back unconscious to encircled and devour the desire in the form of a sigil into the subconscious and lose perception in the conscious mind.
