Hey all, some research has yielded some interesting things: Like, I MAY have discovered what the Ceremony is based on.
The Four Pillars are connected as different Zodiac signs. One involved in the Fall ceremonies is Hathor, The Goddess of SONG and MUSIC. There is actually a ritual and a SONG of Hathor.
It involves a practice called the “Opening of the Mouth” which imbued statues with “ka” (spirit) and sustained the deceased or godly spirits. It supposedly imbues statues with afterlife spirits…or perhaps in this case, BREE with afterlife spirits.
Why Hathor, you ask? Well, besides the Egyptian references to Song and Music, well….Hathor’s TEMPLE is at…(wait for it….)

There is actually more:
In Crowley’s poetic work, Tannhauser , she is one of the characters that is of the “World of the Gods.” Therein she has merely one line: “Light, Truth, arise, arise!” In this work she is seen as being synonymous with Aphrodite and Mary. Venus is seen as being the “Evil and Averse Hathoor” of the “World of Demons” who proclaims to Tannhauser:
Hathoor am I, and to my beauty drawn
All glories of the Universe bow down,
The blossom and the mountain and the dawn.
Fruit’s blush, and woman, our creation’s crown.
I am the priest, the sacrifice, the shrine,
I am the love and life of the divine!
Life, death, love, hatred, light, darkness, are surely mine—
Qabalistically, Crowley associated Hathor with the path of Daleth. He also found that the Hebrew spelling of her name, AThOR (????) was related Qabalistically to the same words for the Tarot (TARO), wheel (ROTA), Law (TORA), and Gate (ThROA). Each of these equals 671. This number besides being a product of 61 x 11 also is the sum of the values of each of the letters written in full of the Hebrew word Adonai, or Lord.
Outside of the works of Crowley Hathor has a number of Thelemic adherents. Soror Het Heru of the House of Horus website, for instance, has written on the connection between Hathor and other Thelemic goddess figures, namely, Nuit and Babalon. In her work she states that Hathor represents a more manifest influence of the same energies found in the other two goddesses.
Additionally, the science fiction writer and founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard, is claimed by his son to have a Holy Guardian Angel by the name of Hathor. Hubbard’s involvment with Thelema and Jack Parsons is well-documented.

Path of Daleth is interesting as well:
Daleth Yetziric Text
The Fourteenth Path is named “The Illuminating Consciousness”
It is called this because it is the essence of the Speaking
Silence (Chashmal). It gives instruction regarding
the mysteries of the holy secrets and their structure.
