Abraxas (or Abrasax)

Sometimes the word has been used to describe the Demiurge or a lower emination. More often however the word is used to imply what is beyond the thing it measures out, thus pointing to the Prime Source through the circular cycle of our time. It is roughly the same as the Hebrew "Ein Soph", which is in both cases a reference to the true non-anthropomorphic God.
