The number 93 is of great significance in Thelema, a religion founded by English author and occultist Aleister Crowley in 1904 with the writing of The Book of the Law (also known as Liber AL vel Legis).[1] The central philosophy of Thelema is in two phrases from Liber AL: “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law” and “Love is the law, love under will.” The two primary terms in these statements are “Will” and “Love”, respectively. In the Greek language, they are Thelema (Will) and Agape (Love). Using the Greek technique of isopsephy, which applies a numerical value to letters, the letters of both of these words when added together equal 93:

  • Thelema = Θελημα
    • Θ (Theta) = 9 +
    • ε (Epsilon) = 5 +
    • λ (Lambda) = 30 +
    • η (Eta) = 8 +
    • μ (Mu) = 40 +
    • α (Alpha) 1
    • = 93
  • Agapé = Αγαπη
    • Α (Alpha) 1 +
    • γ (Gamma) 3 +
    • α (Alpha) 1 +
    • π (Pi) 80 +
    • η (Eta) 8
    • = 93
