Observe, however, that in each of these three words in the given name there are six letters — George has six letters, Cooper six, and Murray six; their mystic emblem also has six points. Each of these letters in the higher occultism is represented by three letters synthesizing into one, which is a symbol of a word; that, in short, the entire name is a TEMURA (six letters), which will be found embodied in stone in countless churches with six pillars in front or the PRONOAS [sic] of the temple."
