Enochian, Vattan & other alphabets

Talking about the power to communicate with metapsychic entities, we should consider preliminarly the aleatory meaning of these expressions. A rational thought would put out all these questions, beyond the field of scientific thought. Notwithstanding, if we shift the matter from the rational sphere to enter inside literature, we must admit their influence, even far beyond what academic sources are disposal to confer to them.

Therefore, inquiring this difficult field, we are needed to consider their influence and possible origin. The most known among these mystical alphabet is the “Enochian”, the pretended angelic language” recorded in the private journals of John Dee and his colleague Edward Kelley in late 16th-century England. Kelley was a spirit medium who worked with Dee in his magical investigations. This alphabet is quite widely known also because it entered into the “Golden Dawn” teachings, being part of the repertory of this magic society which was active during the years between the end of XIX and the beginning of XX century in England and then exported in America.

Another esoteric language is the “Vattan”, developed in Russia in the same age than Golden Dawn, coming through the Martinist tradition in Saint Peterburg, with the intermediation of personalities like Joseph De Maistre and Saint-Yves d’Alveydre. What we can immediately recognize through by a comparison between Enochian and Vattan is their common debt with the schemes of the Qabbalah.

Here we stop our short treaty, expressing more contents in a reserved area. Anyway, we may remand here to an interesting article published in Journal of the Western Mystery Tradition, No. 15, Vol. 2. Autumnal Equinox 2008, which connects this alphabet with a sequence of the 64 hexagrams/codons, which describes the changes, or relationships, within the action of RNA, the celestial sequence describes the quality of time as the evolution of the results of action, what the Hindus call Karma, a total picture of reality emerges.

Concerning the “Vattan” of the Russian tradition, we find very interesting the substantial identity with the Enochian and, better than the former, its complete permutability with the Hebrew. As we can read through The Creation of a Universal System: Saint-Yves d’Alveydre and his Archeometer, by Joscelyn Godwin, “Saint-Yves learned this from Haji Sharif (or “Hardjji Scharipf”), his Sanskrit teacher. Haji came from Bombay and lived in Levallois-Perret, a suburb of Paris. The lessons took place three times a week, beginning on June 8, 1885, and continued with a few interruptions at least until November 12, 1886. Sometimes the Marquise was also present. These lessons, written out very carefully by Haji, are in the Sorbonne Library (MS. Carton 42); they are also interesting for the information they contain on “Agartha,” which I have treated elsewhere (…) Vattan was mentioned as the primitive source of all the languages in the world, being evidently the source for the equivalents of the 22 letters of Vattan with those of Hebrew—crucial for the Archeometer—and with part of the Sanskrit alphabet”.
