Just to add to this a little. Regardie told me that Paul case had very strong 
views against the Enochian system. Regardie also told me that BOTA used in 
their rituals a set of tablets that have been rectified Enochain ones. I was 
also told that some of the Enochian names have been re arranged in these 
tablets. Now I have never seen one but would like to and do an analysis. I 
have tried for years to get a set of these tablets without success. I know one 
or two people that have them but for reasons of secrecy or other motives they 
keep them to themselves. Frankly looking at the whole BOTA Enochian 
association would be interesting to many readers. So if someone one out there 
wants to post them on the net so we can all get a look it then go for it. And 
yes I am completely unashamed for asking and make no apology for it.  You do 
not get anywhere until you ask.
