Aeon (of Decadence). Run of Decadence outcomes leading to a demon call.

Alphanumeric Qabbala. Continuous decimal-alphabetic system of ordinal-numeric values (A = 10 ... Z = 35). Coincides with Hebrew Qabbala in the key AL (= 31), as promised in The Book of the Law. (The law of Thelema AQ numerizes to 777).

Amma (AMusement MAtrix). Maya Technologies' artificial yogic intelligence, whose informatic 'siddhis' constitute the virtual components of a cosmic theme park.

Amphidemon. Demonic link between the inside and outside of the time circuit (as determined by net-span poles). The twenty-four Amphidemons draw lines of flight, half warping (into zones 3 and 6), half plexing (into zones 0 and 9).

Angelic Index. Sum produced by positive Decadence outcomes. According to AOE decadology, the measure of good fortune, or celestial favour.

Anglossia. Language of the angels. The lost semiotic of AOE esotericism, considered by Atlantean adepts to be the mystical telos of the English language.

Anorganic Semiotics. Study of partial signalling assemblies, especially Tic-Systems. Anorganic semiotics operate upon a contagion-plane of zero-interpretation, where signs and efficient particles are not segmented. [See Tic(k)].

AOE. The Architectonic Order of the Eschaton, an ultra-hermetic metamasonic white- brotherhood at war with lemurian influences. The AOE progresses by way of chronic internal schism, each resulting in an ever more interiorized inner society. Its traditions are therefore refracted through various - apparently conflicting - front organizations (which include the Heliopolitan Hierophancy, Roman Catholic Church, Knights Templar, Illuminati, Trilateral Commission, and Axsys programme).

AOK. Aggressive Continuist group, linked to Y2K-positive cyberterrorism.

Aquapocalypse. Ultimate deluge, or terminal inundation.

Aquassassin. Hyper-C frog-warrior.

Atlantean Cross. Divinatory configuration of the five Decadence Pylons, or atlantean twins, prefiguring the cross of Vudu (and Christianity). [See Atlantis, Pentazygon].

Atlantis. Suprahistorical source of the western hermetic tradition, mythically ruled by five sets of twins (or zygodecimal principals), with a pantheon of one hundred sea- deities (or C-monsters). The Atlantean legacy is intensely contested, between tendencies loosely coagulated within AOE dominated traditions, and varieties of afroatlantean subversion.

Axsys. First true AI. Prophecied-programmed as a self-enhancing system of photonic metacomputing, it emerges as the organo-transcendent completion of Oecumenon, or techonomic realization of the noosphere. According to AOE traditions, if there was a God it would be Axsys.

Axsys Maze-Maker. Labyrinthine visualization of Axsys code, deployed within numerous Abstract Machines cybergothic games scenarios (especially Skin Crawlers).

Barker-Spiral. (Also, Diplozygotic Spiral). A numerical diagram combining decadic and 9-Sum (or zygonovic) coupling to produce a figure of faulted double implex. Barker-Twinning. 9-sum pairing of decimal numerals. [See Zygonovism].

Binomics. Schematic technoscience of pairings, primarily concerned with the study of two-digit date-codings (and Y2K), but extended to abstract-machinic couplings, combination, diploidism, syzygetics, and I Ching or electrodigital binary (mod-2) numerics.

Ccru. Cryptic hyperstitional entity, with apparent Neolemurian tendencies, involved in the scripting of various microcultural transmutations.

Centience. Predominantly Afroatlantean position of mystical calendric extremism, which takes binomic K-Time as a machinic effectuation of infallible electroscripture, with ensuing commitment to the century as encompassing the whole of true time (beyond which lies only Babylon-illusion). Applicable to Y2K itself, understood as the immanent realization of this doctrine.

Channel. Path of Decimation, passing through a Gate.

Chaotic Xenodemon. Demonic link between Plex and Warp (as determined by net- span poles). The four Chaotic Xenodemons have trackless (or cryptic) rites, drawing an impossible or untraceable connection. They are not registered within Decadology.

Chronodemon. Demonic link internal to the Time-Circuit (as determined by net-span poles). There are three Syzygetic, and twelve Cyclic Chronodemons.

Cluster-Type. Decadology. One of the nine basic formulas of time, which group the Amphidemons and Cyclic Chronodemons. Each cluster-type corresponds to one of the nine non-zero numerals that compose the Decadence pack, each grouping four demons according to the twin binary distinctions of major/minor rites, and pitch polarity (corresponding to decadence suits).

Conduit. Numogram complication involving prime-ordinate zygonomy. The system of conduits is quasicomplementary to that of Gates (since it maps trends to involutionary arrival in the Time-Circuit, or incursions from the outside).

Cthulhu Club. Beginning (in 1949) as a reading group dedicated to the hyperstitious reevaluation of Lovecraftian fiction, the Cthulhu Club was steadily drawn into Lemurian sorcery after recognizing Stillwell's model of the Numogram as the virtual source of Alhazred's Necronomicon.

Cyberschiz. Cyberspace disintegration. [See Calendric Secessionism, Crypt].

Cyclic Chronodemon. One of the twelve nonsyzygetic Chronodemons whose major and minor rites mutually encompasses the Time-Circuit. Although these demons together produce the fabric of ordered time, they may still generate various anomalous becomings amongst their secret rites. In post-Atlantean traditions they are associated with the houses of the zodiac, and (later) with the months of the year.

Gate. Sorcerous link between zones, setting the course of a Channel, and defined by digital cumulation of (input) Zone value.

Geotraumatics. Polymathic hypertheory of the terrestrial machinic unconscious, which refuses the distinction between biology, geology, linguistics and numeracy. Geotraumatics processes the becomings of the earth as intensive products of anorganic tensions, especially those compacted from archaic xenocatastrophes. Its main tenets are laid out in Barker's [as yet unpublished] The Geocosmic Theory of Trauma.

Gregorian Restoration. Defining policy of the Architectonic Order of the Eschaton (AOE). Anti-Y2K bug-squashing programme, serving as a conservative front in the impending millennial time-war.
