sells books. The rest of the text shows other instances of his
appropriation and recontextualization (aka plagiarism), most notably
the "tooth & claw" section...
It *is* interesting to see what parts of the "standard"
translation/meaning of the calls were "offending." But that's about as
much as it's been good for IME.
- Enochian has a reputation for being very powerful and I think LeVey
want to to try to tap the demonic side of the system by using these
calls since people generally report great success with them. He
altered them to suit his philosophy and put them into his bible.
What I have heard is that the altered versions don't seem to work as
well if at all. Possibly the way Enochian is structure it doesn't lend
itself well to translation in the customary way but I'll see what
Aaron comes up with when he gets the book done and keep my little
theory under my hat for the moment. :-)
When Crowley was doing work with Demons he used the calls as written
by Dee and Kelly the Goetia is an example of this; he used them as the
conjuration. He called up most every type of spirit that way.
I don't have any practical experience working with LeVay's system and
probably won't in the near future but there are plenty of groups out
there and more details might be available through them.
- Perhaps the Enochian language was used to bypass the conscious
mind.When Lavey was introducing Satanism during the 1960's, there may
have been a heavy dose of Christian guilt lurking in the minds of people
who attempted to call upon demons.If the language was
unknown/unfamiliar,one could activate the rituals without the mind
bringing up barriers.True,there were English translations of the
Keys,provided,but the language itself,was new to most people.Less
resistance,more ability to access change of consciousness.
Just my opinion.

- Just some fun I had - I wrote this to celebrate getting the Picatrix

+The Aires Within which Imagination�s Clouds -
High Winds Write the Invisibles of our Spirit+
between the storm churned oceans of our World
and the airless deserts of the stone cold beauty
called the Moon
lay 30 aires or shells of ever-more rare atmosphere
in which each lay landscapes of spirits peculiar to that
each aire lay outspread about its horizon
with continent dense with all manifestation of habitation flora and fauna
and keeps maps of its own treasures within its special grasp of magnetism.
all such as said to inhabit the lay-lines and hidden lands of Earth in
lay at some secret location
here-in and up there or what have you except by some door of connection
between �here and now� and �that place� by
amulet, witch-birth, sigil and/or invocation of the daemon whose haunt
their high-roads inward evocation.
set these few rules as kisses in thine bosom:
the inward circle is nailed as per Topical 12 and 7
the outward wards as lamps and signatures are set
by the place of their guests each in their actual Heaven.
the table as a double cube has true East as Vernal
below the lamp whose burning marks the centre
for all devotions.
and the triangle is as a gunsight place in a smoked glass
on the wall
in which the magician
will don the mask of the invited guest as he or she will
voice both test and answer
to the scribe�s Witness True.
For all Gods and ghosts are heard by eye and seen by ear
within the breast of witch or seer.

LaVey used anything and everything he could... Deities from many different pantheons, Enochian calls with a few words changed around, and many concepts from Ayne Rand.
Here is the amusing bit... I had been working with Enochian magic for about 10 years or so when I started doing the odd ritual with a friend of mine who is a Satanist. He would always ask me to read the Enochian calls part of the ritual. So we experimented with the slightly modified LaVey versions vs the original calls. We found both to work quite well, and the spells come to be. I'm sure it was more then a bit blasphemous, but I'm always up for an experiment. One thing I have to give LaVey credit for is coming up with a use for the Enochian calls. The GD did as well of course. I have since experimented with using different Enochian calls for different types of magic, but in this case within the context of the Enochian system and in their original form. They definitely do work well :).
I still wonder what the calls were originally meant for. They did come before the great table, quite a bit before it in fact. Perhaps to be used with the 49x49 tables, or for something else entirely. I have my own theories, but much more experimentation is needed before I know for sure.
Btw, Aaron, fall of this year is so long to wait!! Hopefully the EEs can help me out with patience lol.
