I reacted to the number 418 the first time I read about it, but did not think it had anything to do with the things I associate the number with. Then I read in the "Abberant Players Guide", and found more to back up my theory.

According the Thelema, the religion founded by magician and mystic Aleister Crowley in 1904, the number 418 is the value of the word "Abrahadabra" - the Word of the New Aeon. According to Thelema a New Aeon started on March 20th 1904 - the Aeon of Horus (former aeons include the Aeon of Isis and the Aeon of Osiris). It is the era of freedom, and the only laws are "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law" and "Love is the Law, Love under Will".

Crowley is often associated with Satanism, and that "Do what thou wilt..." means that you are free to indulge in whatever whim you feel like at the moment. But in "Abberant Players Guide" Count Orzaiz quotes Crowley and says that it "is a call to greater personal responsibility". This means that the people behind "Trinity" at least have some form of idea what Thelema is about.

As a thelemite myself, I find this intresting. Just thought I'd share. ::smile
