The name Blissett is derived from Hebrew Beresh'it, "in the beginning," which is the first word in the Genesis. B/Beth is the second, T/Taw is the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet; they are the first and the last letter in Blissett as well as in Beresh'it. Why Beth and not Aleph? Because Aleph cannot be matched! As the absolute beginning, it is not yet an actual beginning because there nothing is set apart from it yet. In order to be a beginning of something, Aleph must be matched with Beth, so that Beth may be considered the beginning of Aleph, or the beginning of the beginning. Literally, Beresh'it/Blissett means "in the beginning"; figuratively, it means "from Beth to Taw," "from the beginning of the beginning to the end," that is, eternal.

Blissett in itself is symmetrical:

1: B - T, Beth - Taw, that is, from beginning to end.

2: L - T, Lamed - Taw.

Lamed as the 12th letter marks the exact middle of the Hebrew alphabet, i.e.

Lamed - Taw: "from middle to end."

3: I - E, are blind letters because vowels do not exist in Hebrew.

4: S - S, Sin - Sin.

If we substract the blind vowels, the resulting BLSSTT still retains the full symmetry. Without redundant occurences, the substrate BLST bears the correspondences Beth/Taw, "beginning/end," and Lamed/Sin, "middle/S." The latter reinforces the previous observation of S at the center.

Why MIDDLE S? Pico della Mirandola shows that S is a concretion supplement: He moves S into the center of YHWE and gains YH+S+WE, "Jessue" or "Jesus." Thereby, says Pico, once-unspeakable name has become pronounced and material. The concretion of S/Sin follows the logic of Adamitic language whose signs are not arbitrarily related, but naturally attached to matter, space and time and hence capable of affecting them. Without the concretion of Sin, a mere tetragrammaton BLT would read as "beginning, middle, end." Sin is concretion of itself, since its shape, a crown, corresponds to Hebrew Keter, the supreme crown in the Sephirotic system. With S supplementing BLT, B-L-S-T thus means concrete, crowned eternity. When subsituting the word "crowned" [S] with "blessed" [BLST], there results a mise-en-abîme, that is, perpetual recombination and concrete eternity in the letters themselves:


B - L - S - T

B - L -BLST- T











It follows that:

1: The concretion function of S is concrete itself. This proof is self-contained and therefore irrefutable.

2: S as the mobile center is the source of perpetuation and therefore never identical with itself.

3: Adamitic language transcends abstract representation by doing what it says; in this case, blessed eternity.

4: The perpetually permuting name Luther Blissett/BLST goes beyond arbitrary language and is purely Adamitic.

But what do the permutations effect? Since each of them produces one more letter pair BL at the beginning and one more single letter T at the end of the expression, the position of S gradually shifts to the end without ever reaching it. With every permutation, the initial BL chain gains additional weight against the T chain, so that "beginning - middle" BL outnumbers "end" T. The end T is perpetually being procrastinated, but never abandoned; after all, T steadily increases in absolute terms. At last, the dynamics of Blissett is such that BLST not only expands in time, but affects time itself by shifting the balance of the tenses, because time is not being spent (with a dynamics towards T), but gained (with a dynamics towards BL) with each permutation.




Appendix A:


A side-effect of the operation: an ever-growing reverse inscription of Luther Blissett's initials LB. Much remains to be said about the dynamics and internal symmetries of L-u-t-h-e-r/LTHR, but two simple observations should be noted:

1: The name Luther is etymologically derived from the Middle High German word lûter (Old English: hlutor, modern German: lauter) meaning "pure" and "honest." The Old Greek equivalent is katharos/KThRs, as related to KTR/Keter, the crowned S. If we therefore replace KThr/ThR in LTHR with S, the result is LS, our previously found statement "S - middle." This belongs to the allegoric and figurative sense of Luther Blissett/BLST.

2: Concerning the literal sense, see Appendix B.


Appendix B:


1: Luther Blissett and his affiliated societies HAVE PUT A HERMETIC SPELL ON THE EVIL BEAST IN ROME which is also known as POPE JOHN PAUL II.

2: Luther Blissett mantically predicts that THE EVIL BEAST WILL SNUFF IT THIS YEAR because the hermetical spell has sent the wicked metastases the Vatican has spun to strangle Europe back into the Beast's rotten body.

3: This is the beginning of Luther Blissett's mission for a TURKO-CALVINIST ALLIANCE against the EVIL EMPIRE OF THE POPE. This alliance will join the Calvinist, Orthodox and Islamic forces of Europe to crunch the Evil Pope and his Hapsburg Empire in the middle! For this purpose, Blissett has set off to Ankara and hopes to negotiate his plans with prime minister Erbakan.

4: Luther Blissett is in intense telepathic contact with OLIVER CROMWELL and FREDERICK, THE WINTER KING OF BOHEMIA to prepare the hermetical Quintomonarchy of the Invisible College.

5: Luther Blissett's messengers and Babtists will soon travel to the Puszta wastelands of Hungary and stage a Turko-Calvinist mass ritual against Marchart, the black magician of the Hapsburg court.
