In at least one offshoot of the Golden Dawn, there was an intermediary grade between that of 7=4 Adeptus Exemptus and 8=3 Magister Templi, corresponding to the Qabalistic pseudo-sephirah of Daath. This grade was apparently worked in the Stella Matutina[1], however apart from the fact of its existence, almost nothing has been publically revealed about this grade.

In a paper delivered to a Golden Dawn conference held in London in 2006, Tony Fuller, a former member of the Whare Ra temple in New Zealand, mentioned that initiates of the Daath grade were given a ritual referred to as "Storming the Gates of Heaven," which involved making contact with the forces behind the Enochian tablets.
