Z'EV - Rhythmajik e-book (1992)

Rhythmajik is perhaps the most unusual book we published. Part dictionary, part magical primer, it constituted a complete practical guide to the rhythmic and magical uses of sound.

Based on the ancient qabalistic tradition where every letter has an equivalent numerical value, Z'EV translates the written word into sound patterns, and describes how these can be put to practical (i.e. magical) use.

As a qabalistic dictionary, it's extraordinary. Every number combination is indexed to a range of meanings. These can be combined to create complex sound patterns for use in healing rituals or other workings. It knocks Crowley's 777 into a cocked hat in terms of its richness and application. And because it's based on sound it can be applied irrespective of language. It removes the mystification of qabalistic systems at a stroke. You can even translate words to number to image via the dictionary, creating complex visual collage out of the symbolic references. Description from Permuted.

Thanks a lot for sharing. I typically don't read books on my computer unless they are expensive, rare and hard to find. This one looks promising (if I can ever get mediafire to load).

I think that the link might be dead any chance for a re-upload?

Mediafire seems to have become a rat bastard about uploads even if the name of the band and album is disguised. I had a ton upped there and they are all gone now, ERROR. Megaupload is pretty good if you mask the name of the band and album. Otherwise they figure it out and remove it.
