The term was considered by occultist Aleister Crowley to represent a unity of beginning and ending by tying together the first and last letters of the alphabets of antiquity.
A/Alpha/Alef (first character of Latin, Greek & Hebrew), Z (final character in Latin), O as Omega (final character in Greek) and Th as Tau (final character in Hebrew). In this way permeation and totality of beginning and end was symbolized to consider the supreme wholeness and the universal synthesis of opposites as a 'cancellation' or cohesion,and in such a way is similar to the philosophical "absolute" of Hegel's dialectic. Crowley further made reference in his works referring to Azoth as "the fluid."
The base of the Azoth Headdress is made with black lambskin leather and black velvet within which are fastened black turkey feathers. Old silver tarnish coins with an antique crucifix lay in the center of the headdress along with
black rosary beads extending to each side. On both sides antique black fringe dangles from velvet buttons and antique rosary pieces. The headdress is adjustable with a hidden elastic band in the back and braided black fabric.
