Writer’s block calls for desperate measures! Western Gematria, for instance. With Phil Sandifer (who clearly likes to connect things “around the back”, as Nick Land puts it) doing some sort of chaos magic sigil thing to turn Gnon into an ancient hand-puppet, what better opportunity to test my Ashkenazi chops in numerology?
Primer in hand, I looked for a connexion between Gnon and Glycon, with but little success. AQ 86 = GNON = LION; AQ 130 = GLYCON = ALLOCES – the Goetic demon about whom it is said “His Face is like that of a Lion”. So there’s that. In fact, the bridge between these two characters appears to be… Phil Sandifer!
AQ 229 = PHIL SANDIFER = ALPHANUMERIC (which rather justifies the whole enterprise) = POSTMODERN (what else) = GNON PROXY = GLYCON BRIDGE.
Further, AQ 148 = SANDIFER = GNON MAGE = PUPPET = SNAKE GOD.
And AQ 324 = SANDIFER’S PUPPET (a puppet’s puppet?) = HOUSE SLYTHERIN = TROLLING IS AN ART.
Yes indeed. As for AQ 192 = NATHAN COOK = OPHIOLATER… no comment.
