But the inexpressible is so only by contrast with the expressible; unnameability emerges always out of the presence of names. The way of negation is not the opposite of affirmation, but its inseparable companion. And here we see emerging the second characteristic: the mystery of names. For whether the gnostics belong to the Jewish Merkabah or the Christian Gnostic, and perhaps to a lesser extent to the Hermetic or the Neoplatonic tradition, one finds a gnosis of the divine names. Here naming refers, not to arbitrary designations, but to inherent characteristics of what is named, to actual energies that the name itself embodies, evokes, indeed, is.
In general, it is reserved for those who are capable of it, who are worthy of it, and who will not use its power for selfish purposes. We find a similar approach to language visible in Jewish esotericism in the doctrine of the Shemhamphorash, or sacred Names of God: by vibrating the names of God in the permutations of the sacred letters and by knowing their proper, true pronunciation, one is in touch with inconceivable power. Such doctrines of the hidden names of God, in turn allied with similar numericalalphabetical mysticism involving the angels, are prevalent in Jewish esotericism during precisely the same time that Christian Gnosticism was flourishing, and in fact close scrutiny of this time suggests that Jewish and Christian esotericisms are so intermingled as to be virtually inseparable.
What is more, numbers and letters can open up into aspects of consciousness itself, so that to work with them is to enter into the existential quality that is their real nature or kernel, of which the quantitative designation is a husk. Such a gnosis of numbers is visible during the medieval period, where we find definite traces of Latin number and letter transposition corresponding to what in Hebrew is termed gematria. 5 A similarly gnostic view of numbers appears again in the work of Louis-Claude de Saint Martin (1743–1803), a theosopher in the line of Jacob Böhme, who wrote his friend Baron Kirchberger that “Numbers are no algebra, my dear brother, but men have sometimes lowered them to it.
