This is the obligatory "welcome" post for my new website.
The impetus for the creation of this site is somewhat crazy (well, to some it may seem that way). To make a long story short, I have a rock band, Pegataur, that is heavily rooted in conceptual mayhem inspired by Western hermetic and occult principles (mostly Qabala, or Kabbalah, if you prefer). Most of the early symbolism came from dreams from Aaron, and then I got the crazy idea that I should write some software that could analyze the music that we were writing along qabalistic lines. A year later, I had a pretty solid code base written in C#.NET that allows me to enter in song "data" and churn out qabalistic-derived points of analysis using gematria, notarikon, and temura techniques. This also necessitated that I create my own gematria database, which was a wild ride in and of itself. After a year of this I felt like I was going to be sucked into the movie Pi. It should be noted that I am not Jewish, although one friend who teaches Hebrew school suggested that I may in fact be an honorary Jew at this point.
I've been wanting to get the code out here for people, but I'm a little weary of having to support it. However, I will be making the database and other functionality available via web services, which I will be hosting off of this site. When I find the time, I'm going to try to make posts to this site about how I did this stuff and how you can use my stuff for anyone who is interested. I may also be trying to get help building and cleaning up the gematria database.
