Intro to Acroamatic Cryptograms


One of the primary driving factors in Freemasonry was this idea of the quest for and the returning of "the Lost Word", or the Omnific Word.  At first glance, this might appear to be a mystical pursuit, but knowing well that the Isisian Mysteries were esconced in the study of "Letters", it is presumed that if we conduct a thorough investigation of the Letters, then the "Lost Word" may indeed "reveal itself".

In F.D. Buck's treatise, "The Lost Word Found", we find that although the title sounds enticing, there is no real revelation as to precisely what that "Lost Word" truly is.  Instead, we are treated to a reasonable thorough lecture on moral integrity with an idea of freeing the soul and then perfecting the soul,

Much is stated in form of allegory and peculiar "Masonic mythology": Solomon's Temple, the widow's son, the death of the Master and with it "the loss of the word", the idea that a substitute has been available.  Ultimately, F.D. Buck says that the time for "the Word" to be recovered was "the present generation", but no real revelation of "the Word" is really presented.

Forgotten Books of Adam and Eve
In "The Forgotten Books of Adam and Eve", we find another reasonably long expose on the idea of "the Word".  In this document, we can discern "attributes" of what "the Word" is capable of achieving.  Primary in these attributes is the idea of "raising people up", "saving" people, and similar seeming beneficial assistance.  
Chapter 3, V 15 - And the Word of the Lord came unto Adam and Eve, and raised them up.
This idea of "raising people up" should be considered, perhaps, in a more pragmatic, rather than "mystical", sense.  What we know from Greek records was that there was a cataclysm known as "the Fall of Atlantis",  With this cataclysm came a dispersion of peoples.  Few of those dispersed had any semblance of a writing system, and soon fell into states of what is said to be near uncivilized barbarism.

Only the Egyptians were able to raise themselves back up relatively quickly.  This is primarily attributed to the idea that the ancient Egyptians had preserved their knowledge due to their extensive use of written works.

Hence we should consider that a "Word" that could lift a people up need not be actually "a Word", but rather something larger.  F.D. Buck hints of this in "The Lost Word Found" when he says at the time of the loss of the Word (itself Masonic mythology), it would not have been possible under the conditions of the time for a mere "Word" to have been lost.  Hence the "Word" must be something larger than a "Word".

The Acroamatic Cipher - Cryptograms in Mythology
However, perhaps the most lucid hint (among many available) comes from Manley P. Hall, when he states clear in "Secret Teachings of All Ages",
The acroamatic cipher is the most subtle of all, for the parable or allegory is susceptible of several interpretations. Bible students for centuries have been confronted by this difficultly...The creation myths of the world are acroamatic cryptograms, and the deities of the various pantheons are only cryptic characters which, if properly understood, become the constituents of a divine alphabet.
The video below explores and applies Qaballa with gleaned nuance from Freemasonry and applies it to English.  Originally recorded in December of 2009, the information remains lucid as the knowledge put forward is indeed - timeless.
