"Is there any point to which you would wish to draw my attention?"
"To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time."
"The dog did nothing in the night-time."
"That was the curious incident," remarked Sherlock Holmes.

The magician Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa (1486-1535) attributed the 6x6 magic square (where the total of all 36 numbers is, of course, 666) to the Sun.

In the famous Aleister Crowley "Black Magic Libel Case" of 1934 (Crowley vs. Constable & Co. Ltd & Others) is this amusing exchange between the defense lawyer, Malcolm Hilbery and Crowley.

Hilbery: "Did you take to yourself the designation of 'The Beast 666'?"

Crowley: "Yes."

Hilbery: "Do you call yourself the 'Master Therion'?"

Crowley: "Yes."

Hilbery: "What does 'Therion' mean?"

Crowley: "Great wild beast."

Hilbery: "Do these titles convey a fair impression of your practice and outlook on life?"

Crowley: "It depends on what they mean."

Hilbery: "The Great Wild Beast and Beast 666 are out of the Apocalypse?"

Crowley: "It only means sunlight; 666 is the number of the sun - You can call me 'Little Sunshine'."


Crowley lost the case.
