6The fact that the exemplary lunar number among the Assy ro-Babylonians was 30 rather than 28 does not contradict the Babylonian origin of these concepts — t hese planetary numbers probably belong to another design. Thus for example, Kircher {Edipus Egyptiacus, Vol, II, p, 305) and, following him, Lenain (Le Science Cabalistique, Amiens, 1823, pp. 119-125), count twenty-eight Lunar Mansions/Houses to which they then add the two supplementary days to arrive at thirty.

We must recall that among the AssyTo-Babylonians the sign for month was simply the sign for day bearing the number 30, that of Sin, the Moon god. Each planet-deity had his number. Anu, the father of the gods, had the number 60, the perfect number in the sexagesimal system and number of the 60° of the signs Capricorn and Aquarius, over which Saturn reigns in an uninterrupted manner. Bal is assigned the number 50; 40 was the number of F-a, god of the abyss; 1">. that of lshtar, Is it because Venus shows the same phases as the Moon that she is assigned half of the lunar number?

1850,

9M. Akor. follower of P.V. Piobb, who brought the Telescope to my attention, assumes with good grounds that there is a precise interpretation for each unusual word found there, Thus, for example, if you replacc each letter of GENHELIA (name of the solar spirit which opens the series of nine planets) with its following letter, you get: HFOIFMJB, i.e., H(Hiram), Foi (allusion to the eighteenth degree), FM (FreeMasonry), JB (name of the two columns of the Temple). The Telescope thus connects Masonic teaching with Astrology, which was always a part of the secret initiatory ceremonies of the Society.
