666 + ב (house) + stele = 777.
Get the stélé of revealing itself; set it in thy secret temple — and that temple is already aright disposed — & it shall be your Kiblah for ever. It shall not fade, but miraculous colour shall come back to it day after day. Close it in locked glass for a proof to the world.
The Old Comment
The Stéle of Revealing — see illustration.
That temple; it was arranged as an octagon; its length double its breadth; entrances on all four quarters of temple; enormous mirrors covering six of the eight walls (there were no mirrors in the East and West or in the western halves of the South and North sides).
There were an altar and two obelisks in the temple; a lamp above the altar; and other furniture.
Kiblah — any point to which one turns to pray, as Mecca is the Kiblah of the Mahometan.
"It shall not fade," etc. It has not hitherto been practicable to carry out this command.
The New Comment
The language is here so obvious and so inane that one is bound to suspect a deeper sense. It sounds as bad as "the last winking Virgin" or St. Januarius.
