"Those who follow the left-hand path, often called the black magicians or Brothers of the Shadow, are workers of spiritual and intellectual and psychical evil, and are therefore Vamacharins."

The circular dial, described in LeMarchand's notes as "The Schetrum of the Vamacharins" is now a movable/wind up feature in Pyramid-Gallery's musical replica of The Lament Configuration.

"Raphael, Oder Artzt-Engel"
Abraham von Franckenberg
Perhaps Franckenberg's most famous work - and certainly his most unusual - is Raphael, Oder Arzt-Engel, first published posthumously in Amsterdam 1676.
The Hebrew name 'Raphael' means 'God has healed'. The archangel Raphael has traditionally been linked with healing and restoration, and it is clear that Franckenberg, in subtitling his manuscript Arzt-Engel ('doctor-angel', a play on Erzengel, 'archangel'), is aware of this fact and wishes to make it clear to his readers. The work, ostensibly a medical tract, draws on both the alchemy of Paracelsus and Böhmian mysticism. There is also evidence pointing to Franckenberg's interest in the Kabbalah and of links with Rosicrucianism and the ideas of Joachim of Fiore.

Hellbound: Hellraiser II (Full Movie)
Puzzles come in many different incarnations. The passageway to Hell can be sought purposely or accidentally...
No matter what form or shape the puzzle manifests itself, one truth is certain. The puzzles are a myriad of logical sequences leading to the same configuration: Leviathan.

"It was not Leviathan that first unlocked the door to this world. Rather it was life, nature, chaos that exploded through it, spilling into his perfect order. Eons ago, when this world was teeming, swirling, sweating life, blue and green, from every pore, it continued to swell, like mother with child. Finally, rupturing through the walls it did not even know existed, it burst into Hell, giving birth to light, and introducing life in that cold dark place."
~ Clive Barker's Book of the Damned - Volume I: "Compositions"
"The people who bind themselves to systems are those who are unable to encompass the whole truth and try to catch it by the tail; a system is like the tail of truth, but truth is like a lizard; it leaves its tail in your fingers and runs away knowing full well that it will grow a new one in a twinkling."
~ Ivan Turgenev to Leo Tolstoy (1856)

"LeMarchand's first and arguably most classic, puzzle construct. Its complexity was managed by expanding on the design of a similar box designed and constructed by Albertus Magnus in the thirteenth century. When operated properly, a pleasing melody issues from within which belies its true nature."
- excerpted from "Tucker's Encyclopedia of Mass Murderers"

The boxes, known in some circles as LeMarchand Boxes, were each one of a kind creations which were also puzzles, with the answer to one's ultimate hearts desire as their solution.
