Instrument 666...

1. [A] formal legal document whereby a right is created or confirmed, or a fact recorded; a formal writing of any kind as an agreement, deed, charter, or record drawn up and executed in technical form.

2. In the law of evidence, the term has a still wider meaning, including also witnesses and things animate and inanimate that may be presented for inspection by the tribunal.

3. [A] system containing two or more objects, where the objects that make up the system are linked in a way that one cannot adequately describe the quantum state of a constituent of the system without full mention of its counterparts, even if the individual objects are spatially separated. This interconnection leads to non-classical correlations between observable physical properties of remote systems, often referred to as non-local correlations.

4. [A] set of metaphysical ideas and associated practices that supposes a consciousness, intelligence, or otherwise mystical component to the experience of existence or reality.

5. In running Instrument 666, the experimenter may remain alive and, thus, able to experience at least one of the universes in this set (even though these universes form a tiny subset of all possible universes). Over time, the experimenter would therefore never perceive his or her own death/self.

6. In many philosophies, the conscious mind is seen as a separate entity, existing in a realm not described by physical law. The map is not the territory. Some people claim that this idea gains support from the description of the physical world. The results of observations are described by classical information which tells you the result.

7. [A] position intermediate between the skepticism of Western science centered on objective observer independent facts, and the philosophies of ancient Eastern mysticism which put primary emphasis on conscious experience.

8. At the other extreme is the idea of a subject, mystically experiencing the unity of the world and no longer confronted by an object or by any objective world . Instrument 666 moves somewhere in the middle, between these two limiting conceptions; and maintains the tension resulting from these two opposites.

9. Instrument 666 is not a statement about the limitations of a researcher's ability to measure particular quantities of a system, but it is a statement about the nature of the system itself.

10. [A] circle can be measured starting at any point.
\Delta x\, \Delta p \ge \frac{\hbar}{2}
\varphi = \frac{1+\sqrt{5}}{2}\approx 1.61803\,39887\ldots\, \pi = \frac{C}{d}.
[A] love letter to a fictional universe trying to do justice to the inspiration from which it came.
Ab Ovo Non Serviam
Two divided by three equals.

"The Magician must build all that he has into his pyramid; and if that pyramid is to touch the stars, how broad must be the base!
There is no knowledge and no power which is useless to the Magician. One might almost say there is no scrap of material in the whole Universe with which he can dispense.
His ultimate enemy is the great Magician, the Magician who created the whole illusion of the Universe; and to meet him in battle, so that nothing is left either of him or of yourself, you must be exactly equal to him.
At the same time let the Magician never forget that every brick must tend to the summit of the pyramid—the sides must be perfectly smooth; there must be no false summits, even in the lowest layers.
This is the practical and active form of that obligation of a Master of the Temple in which it is said: "I will interpret every phenomenon as a particular dealing of God with my soul." --BOOK 4 Aleister Crowley
