Liber Gematria (1st Draft)
By Frater I Nigris (666)

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
The word of Sin is Restriction.

What follows is a gematria system for the English language.  It has reference to systems traditional and draws on many sources
where possible.  This is a skeletal framework, pending a more serious revision in direct comparison to traditional systems and
an alphabetical listing.

(editor's note:  Liber Al vel Legis has predicted that a system of gematria shall be worked out for the English language.  For the past century, many Thelemic occultists have puzzled over this.  This is not the only proposed system of gematria for the English language and should be heartily tested and compared with other methods.  "Success is thy proof..." [AL III:42])
