Austin Osman Spare - Sigils / patterns

Ordered a second hand copy of Austin Osman Spare's Book of Pleasure to find out more about his ideas on Sigil's, as it seems like it might have interesting ideas connected to patterns/coherence/interference.

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring 
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Incidentally, if you're interested in such things, here's a great site featuring (mainly) translations from French of pieces dealing with Tarot, occultism and surrealism. Some of it is pretty higher grade stuff.

I will have a look thanks.

I didn't have any particular interest in traditional occult stuff, (but the history/use of the pentacle is interesting to me), I was just interested in AOS's use of letters to create a pattern... where upon he used some technique to move this into his subconsciousness... and where he thought it would have an effect... still a bit hazy on it.
