The newest design in Danny’s Grimoire Series features a pen and ink drawing contained in a spectacular vellum copy of Aleister Crowley’s 1904 edition of The Book of the Goetia of Solomon the King. The image is of Crowley stationed inside a protective magic circle as he summons the ninth spirit (Crowned King Paimon), who manifests while seated on a dromedary inside the Triangle of Art. In the center of the design is Paimon’s Seal from the Goetic spirit catalogue (a mapping of specific brain circuitry according to Crowley’s “masterly elucidation” that is part of his Initiated Interpretation of Ceremonial Magic). After being compelled to appear, the spirit, who instructs the Operator in all arts and sciences (along with secret knowledge), is further commanded to speak these things clearly and in the magician’s own language. The character (i.e. neurological zone) of Paimon can also be worn as a Lamen. For additional information concerning such extraordinary impressions projected back into the ‘phenomenal world’, see “Notes to Pentecost” in A.C.’s The Sword of Song.
