I have added a new tool to the resources section of the website: the Daimon Sigil Generator! You can go check it out immediately, or keep reading for some additional background.
Where did this idea come from?
Whether penned by Agrippa or Pseudo-Agrippa, FBOP contains a wealth of delightful gems. You can learn more about it in this podcast episode with Douglas Batchelor from What Magic is This?. In one section of FBOP, there is a method for transforming a spirit name into a sigil or character that uses a very primitive type of cryptographic hash. Though written in very obtuse Latin, the formula ends up being:
- n is the current position in the name (starting at 1)
- c is the number of letters in the name
- v is the numerical value of the current letter (starting at 1)
It turns out that math and magic were closely intertwined in the past!
It’s open source, so you can look at what’s happening!
If you are not a programmer or tech nerd, and you want to support this kind of tool creation, you can help out by using the tool and telling others about it! You can also help by supporting my work at Arnemancy through Ko-Fi or other methods.
Enjoy your math and enjoy your magic!
