The above tablet, variously known as the Tablet of God and the Tablet of Nalvage, was revealed by the angel Nalvage just prior to the receipt ofðthe calls and Great Tablet. It consists of a 6x6 square divided into four 3x3 squares with four 4-letter names on the sides. Dee was first told that there were four sections, two dignified, one not dignified but to be dignified, and one without glory or dignification. He was then given three words in Latin for each section:
First: Gaudium (joy), Presentia (present), Laudantes or Triumphantes (praisers)
Second: Potestas (power), Motus (motion), Ministrantes (servants)
Third: Actio (action), Factum (performing), Confirmantes (supporters)
Fourth: Luctus (lamentation), Discordia (dissension), Confundantes (disturbers)
He was then given the lettering of the 3x3 squares, composed in each case of the word IAD (God) and two additional 3-letter words translated as the first two words already given for each section, as follows:
First: IAD (God) MOZ (joy) ZIR (present)
Second: IAD (God) BAB (power) ZNA (motion)
Third: IAD (God) SOR (action) GRV (performing)
Fourth: IAD (God) SER (lamentation) OSF (dissension)
He was then given the names on the sides of the tablet, each assoicated with one of the remaining terms given above: LVAH (praisers), LANG (servants), SACH (supporters), URCH (disturbers). The geometry of this is interesting, since the order of the inner sections gives a reverse Z, and the order of the side sections is a circle, yet the associated terms come in the same order for each.
Dee was told regarding the tablet that:
"1. Its substance is attributed to God the Father.
2. The first circular mover, the circumference, God the Son, the finger of the Father, and the mover of all things.
3. The order and knitting together of the parts in their due and perfect proportion, God the Holy Ghost. Lo, in the beginning and end of all things."
The side sections of the tablet were said to be assigned to the Son.
Runar has received additional names and information about the tablet. ðAssociated with each of the side names, called choirs, are five additional names, one curving out from the center and four extending straight in from the sides, as follows:
LVAH: ROAVA, LAOI, VMZR, ABNA, HDAZ
LANG: AAAAN, LAAN, ABZA, NRSF, GDEO
SACH: FEAAC, SAES, ASOF, CRRU, HDOG
VRCH: VOARC, VAOR, RSGU, CZIR, HDOZ
The central four letters of the tablet are associated with a square region and may be read VRAF or VRFA. VR is the name of the letter L which means one, the V indicating darkness and thus transcendence. VRAF is interesting because the 19 AF pillars connect to this tablet. VRFA may be translated as "One above nothing".
Around these central letters are found four names associated with a circular region surrounding the square: GOR, OES, ZAN, ZOI. These may be translated as follows:
GOR - open - synonymously this is also one of the words that are used for lust and light - but of the Q kind - (eros) and its much more eros and Babalon than OOE & OES that has been used for lust/extacy. GOR = negation-becoming - going. A word of birth by essences. Babalons use of this formula has been From negating the negative receive the unborn darkness as fresh motion.
OES - ecstacy.
ZAN - finger and will symbol. Duality-time/anew-interiority. Makes it look like a wand rather than any act. The wand must have the duality and time inside in order to be able to act, as its acts are imposing the will upon creation ( that is within linear time and duality), even if the wills foremost character is to appear one and nondualistic..
ZOI - duality-becoming-enabled. The zone which I belive zoi derives from are the primordial waters - the darkness beyond consciousness. In here there only exists nothing and the paradox that nothing is or/and nothing is not. This is the original duality in its first state and the raw material for any creator god.
ZOI GOR OES ZAN
From the unconscious, birth and concentration of the finger.
GOR OES ZAN ZOI
Here the phrase ZAN ZOI becomes different as it depicts a ready will, self conscious about its duality and powers of duality.
OES ZAN ZOI GOR
The wand acts.
ZAN ZOI GOR OES
The wand acts and creates in his image.
The square is assigned to the Father, the circle to the Son, and the regions to the Holy Ghost.
The following names are also found in the tablet:
1st: HDAZSEAS to be used for obtaining
2nd: IABLANRG for endurance
3rd: MBAVLAOI keep in control
4th: HDZCRUSA for the work mentioned in the circle
5th: IRZNAFOS the entrance to the square
6th: OIDHRRGU the square
The remaining letters of the tablet make up the name DIAC.
The tablet is to be taken as facing down (ie with the writing on the bottom), with the first region in the East, the second in the South, the third in the North, and the fourth in the West. The side sections correspond to the motion of the visible stars and planets through the sky, LVAH running from rising to midheaven, LANG from midheaven to setting, SACH from setting to nadir, and VRCH from nadir to rising. As the stars and planet pass from one of these sections to the next, influence from the region lying between them is felt. This influence is carried by the 5-letter name associated with the section being entered. The 4-letter names work within the sections and don't relate directly to the regions.
The regions may be viewed as a plain divided into four regions with a tower at the center corresponding to the square and circle. The square is not properly part of any of the regions. The four names of the circle give connections between the square and the regions they are in. The regions seem similar to the aethers in that they are spaces of a particular type of energy. They seem to connect to the watchtowers via the rugs in Kelley's vision, with the colors having somewhat different conotations in relation to this tablet and the watchtowers and thus giving the connection. An alchemical interpretation seems to fit the tablet, with green in the West referring to unrefined matter and black, white, and red in the North, South, and East referring to the corresponding alchemical processes. The regions also relate to the steps in the vision of the roundhouse. Finally, the regions fit with the four-fold pattern found in calls 1-4, the four flames, etc., with the first region being associated with the 4th of these, the second the 1st, the third the 3rd, and the fourth the 2nd. This is because the 1st is above the 2nd, the 3rd between them, and the 4th is above, below, or encompasses them, and may also be associated with the number 0 rather than 4. Note that the side sections proceed through these in the order 0123 or 1234, the names in the circle the reverse.
The first three of the six names relate to the regions and have functions along the lines given with the names. The next three relate to the circle and square as indicated. The square seems to be home to the powers that rule the tablet. DIAC relates to the side sections.
