Ryan Peverly, Occulture and the Seven-pointed Star on the Infinite Path?

I listened to the latest 'Occulture' podcast yesterday, which was really a podcast crossover with Ryan being interviewed at 'The Infinite Path' podcast of Niles Heckman -
The Infinate Path: Episode 79 Ryan Peverly
"Ryan Peverly on his influences, his inspirations, his conversations, art, the occult, and Occulture."
I only started listening to Ryan's podcast when Chris Knowles mentioned being on an 'Occulture' podcast (the above You Tube) and I only found out about Niles Heckman and his 'The Infinite Path' podcast when Ryan mentioned being interviewed by Niles.
I like how Niles re-branded his podcast starting with Episode 69:-)

Aleister Crowley seemed to think highly of that number -

But with me being an Australian it was Ryan's talk of his fascination with the seven-pointed star which he uses for his avatar for his podcast show and ascribed to John Dee that got my attention, as we have seven-pointed stars all over our national flag.
The original Australian flag had a six-pointed star for a few years until it was replaced by the seven-pointed star.
"The flag's original design (with a six-pointed Commonwealth Star) was chosen in 1901 from entries in a competition held following Federation, and was first flown in Melbourne on 3 September 1901, the date proclaimed as Australian National Flag Day.
A slightly different design was approved by King Edward VII in 1903.
The seven-pointed commonwealth star version was introduced by a proclamation dated 23 February 1908."
John Dee (13 July 1527 1608 or 1609) was a mathematician, astronomer, astrologer, occultist, imperialist and adviser to Queen Elizabeth I.
The star is known as the Sigillum Dei (seal of God, or signum dei vivi, symbol of the living God, as called by John Dee the Sigillum Dei Aemaeth) was a late Middle Ages magical diagram, composed of two circles, a pentagram, and three heptagons, and is labeled with the name of God and his angels.
"The Commonwealth Star (also known as the Federation Star, the Seven Point Star, or the Star of Federation) is a seven-pointed star symbolising the Federation of Australia which came into force on 1 January 1901.
Six points of the Star represent the six original states of the Commonwealth of Australia, while the seventh point represents the territories and any other future states of Australia.
The original star had only six points; however, the proclamation in 1905 of the Territory of Papua led to the addition of the seventh point in 1909 to represent it and future territories."
The flag was approved for use in 1962.
It is only used by the Queen when she is in Australia, or attending an event abroad in her role as head of state of Australia.
The Queen's representative, the Governor-General of Australia has a separate flag.
The flag consists of a banner of the coat of arms of Australia, defaced with a gold seven-pointed federation star with a blue disc containing the letter E below a crown, surrounded by a garland of golden roses.
Each of the six sections of the flag represents the heraldic badge of the Australian states, and the whole is surrounded by an ermine border representing the federation of the states.
Umm ... G'Day?-)
We're gearing up for Australia Day at the moment, so seven-pointed stars are everywhere.
But of course, that seven-pointed star on the flag and coat of arms would surely have nothing to do with Dee's star, would it?-)
But either way Australia is a magical place to live in, I think.
