More on the 7 vs 7 Triplets vs 7 Words
There are obviously infinitely more connections to be found between the 42-Letter Name and the Torah’s first verse, but we want to extend one more from where we left off in the previous article (Part VIII). In further analysis, besides the 3701 – 2701 = 1000 or Alef(א) relationship between the intertwined 42-Letter Name and the first verse of the Torah, we have also been given two balancing equations between the 7 words of the first verse and the two 7 Triplet halves of the 42-Letter Name, as illustrated below:
The left side of the 42-Letter Name versus the right side. Or the 7 left-hand side Triplets compared with the 7 right-hand ones. How do they interrelate with each other and with and with the specific combinations of the 7 words of the Torah’s first verse?
Right off the bat, we see that the sum of the left-hand side, 2498, is exactly equal to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th words combined. That is all but the 2nd word (ברא) of numerical value 203. This 2nd word (ברא) of numerical value 203, though, is clearly reflected on the 7 Triplets of right-hand side of the Name, which total 1203. The difference being exactly 1000, as in the 1000-unit difference between the Torah’s first verse and the 42-Letter Name. Thus, a proportion of (1 + 6) = 7 words is established, as in the 6 bundled dimensions (sefirot) of Zeir Anpin and 1 reflective illusory dimension called Malchut built into the Tree-of-Life design of the universe.
Both the derived proportion and its link to the design of the 10 sefirot are analogous to the 6 and 1 days of Creation from Chapters 1 and the first 3 verses of chapter 2 of the Torah. This itself is analogous to the 42-Letter Name derived from the 1st verse of the Torah of 28 letters and the 3 words of the 2nd verse of 14 additional letters. Fitting since we are discussing the number 1203: 1st, 2nd, and 3 (verse/words).
Meanwhile, the right-hand side of the 42-Letter Name for its part totals 1203, which also works out to exactly the combination of the 4th, 5th, and 6th words of the Torah (1203).
This split left-hand side versus the right-hand side of the 42-Letter Name, or 2498 versus 1203, also yields yet another comparative combination when the elevating number 1000 is subtracted. Since the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 7th words of the Torah equal 1498 or (2498 – 1000) we see the interplay of the number 1000, representing Binah, on both sides of the 42-Letter Name and how it integrates with the Torah’s first verse.
Without the addition of the number 1000, the ratio between the 7 Triplets of the left-hand side and the 7 triplets of the right-hand side would be 1498 vs 203 or (7 x 203) + 77. As we will see later, this design feature of the 7-row matrix called the 42-Letter Name of G-d and number 7 has a distinct purpose, especially as concerns the word “to create.” Meanwhile, the comparison is between the left side and the right side or 2498 vs 1203 and 2498 represents the sum of the 3rd highest value combination of the 7 words and 1203 represents the 74th highest combination. Together (3 + 74) equal the 77 value in the 1498/203 = ((7 x 203) + 77) equation above.
Expanding this train of thought 103 is 1000, reflective of Binah, and 3 x 10 = 30, the numerical value of the Hebrew letter Lamed (ל), also reflective of Binah, and the 3 spelled out letters of the letter Lamed (למד) = 74. Moreover, the two well-known enlarged letters that connect to Binah and delineate and define the first verse of the Shema are Ayin (ע) and Dalet (ד) of numerical value 74. More about how the 1000-letter Shema and 42-Letter Name integrated later.
The left-hand side of the 42-Letter Name represent as a proportion, .92% of the Torah’s first verse, which also means that 6 of the 7 words represent 92% of the Torah’s first verse, possible reflective of the 92 natural elements of the physicality, which we will get into later. Obviously, it is not 92 exactly as illustrated above; it is 92.48426% or .9248426 of the total. Let us set aside for a moment that the proportionate split between the left-hand side of the 42-Letter Name versus its right-hand side in terms of the value of the Torah’s first verse (.9248426) yields the number 924 that we saw when the alef-bet was split into the Phi(ϕ) proportion. The resultant number .9248426 also includes in sequence the key Torah numbers 248, 42, as in the Torah’s 248 columns and 42 rows, and the Tetragrammaton (26). This would be a nice comparative suggestion that both the Torah and the 42-Letter Name should be viewed as matrices or arrays divided into columns and rows and that they both somehow relate to the Tetragrammaton (26) but that is pure conjecture.
We can also compare the two sides (columns) of the 42-Letter Name with its whole value (3701). When we sum both resultant proportions of the two comparisons, we get an oddly even result. The sum of the percentage splits between the two sides in comparison with both the Torah’s first verse (2701) and with the value of the entire 42-Letter Name (3701) is a round ratio of 1.600 vs .400. In other words, (.9248426 + .6749527) = 1.600 and (.0751573 + .3250472) = .400.
This resultant proportion (1.600/.400) works out to exactly an 80/20 or 4/5 and 1/5 split. It also works out to exactly four(4). Is there a mathematical quirk that makes it work out this way? No. Once again, no.
This was part of the same purposeful design that deftly integrated Pi and Phi into both portals. And through the use of the value 1000 or 103, the primordial Alef(א) was brought into it in yet another way.
That the final result was a complete integration between the Torah’s first verse and the 42-Letter Name was the number 4 was more than purposeful design. It was even more than a clue of how we can reach Oneness, the Source.
Some have suggested that the ordinal value of the two central letters (רצ) of the 42-Letter Name, 18 and 20 should be added to their respective sides (1.600 and .400) to give us 1.618 or Phi(ϕ) and .420.
And others have suggested the lone Alef(א) of the 42-Letter Name should be added to complete the 6 Alefs(א) of the Torah’s first verse to make a total of 7. They are probably right, but that is obviously speculation. What is hard undeniable fact are the integrated connections, equations, and resultant proportions delineated above.
Moreover, just In case we were to think that that connection of 924 to the 924 in the Phi(ϕ) splitting of the alef-bet was a coincidence, let us consider that we are talking about the 14 Triplets and that the first verse of 28 letters is even divisible into two sets of 14 and 14 letters. When we add the 14 letters on the left-hand side of the Torah’s first verse to the 7 triplets of the left-hand side of the 42-Letter Name, and do the same with the right-hand side, their sums would give us 4007 and 2395 respectively. Forget what the numbers 4 and 7 may represent, 4007 as a percent of the 42-Letter Name and First Verse combined is (4007/(2701+3701) = .625… matching perfectly the 625 of original alef-bet split and the square root of the 390,625 core elements of the Torah.
And any discussion of the 7 Triplets vs 7 Triplets vs 7 first words would be incomplete without mentioning that the 42 letters and 28 letters together make 70 in total.
Oddly, the two numbers of the 4 numbers associated with the phi(ϕ) split and the original split of the alef-bet not represented in these equations of the 14 Triplets and 14 first-verse letters are 870 and 571, which summed together give us a palindromic 1441 for an average of 720.5. You get the point. The 720 of the 72 Triplets was once again woven into the equation, in yet another eloquent and simplistic manner, bringing together the 4th of the 4 Essential forces or portals of the Torah (1st Verse, 42-Letter Name, Shema, and 72 Triplets).
If you want to read 1441 as a hint in how to recombine 571 and 870 into 5778 and 10, we are not going to dissuade you, but that too is just speculation and should not take away from the hard facts of what is being taught us from across millennia, from across time and space.
One quick additional note is that 1203 of the right side of the 42-Letter Name was the sum of the 4th, 5th and 6th words, and (4+5+6) = 15, or in Hebrew Yud-Hei(יה), and 2498 was the sum of the 1st, 3rd 4th, 5th , 6th and 7th words and (1+3+4+5+6+7) = 26, or the Tetragrammaton (יהוה). Yes another independent form of integration beyond the scope of derivative mathematics. And those 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 7th words of the Torah that equaled 1498, give us a sum of (1+2+3+7) = 13, while 1498 is the 55th highest combination of the 7 words, as in our (13 – 42 – 55) combination and all that to which it connected.
Regarding those special 7 words or 28 Letters of Creation and their 7 combinations, if we add their digits in their individual sums (i.e. 2+4+9+8 for 2498) together with the digits in the words which were not utilized in that particular combination (i.e. 2+0+3 for 203), they will always sum to 28. The two exceptions are for the complete set of 7 which totals 2701 or 27 + 1 = 28, and any set of missing words that totals 28 or higher in which case small gematria is applied and the totals as summed again (i.e. 2+8 = 10 and 1+0 = 1). Another phenomenon of those combinations is that any of the 23 combination that is wholly divisible by 37 has the property that the sum of its digits (i.e. 2+7+0+1) is equivalent to the sum of the digits in the quotient of that number divided by 37 (i.e. 2701/37 = 73 and 7+3 = 2+7+0+1 = 10). These properties no doubt play an undisclosed role in this process of discovery that will reveal itself in due time.
We do know that the 23 combinations are comprised of 84 words and (23 + 84) = 107 and like the sum of 1 – 73 that equals 2701, the sum of the integers from 1- 107 = 5778.
Nevertheless, why are all these integrations significant? It is not just redundancy—we have seen enough of that already—it is the essential natural of the relationship between the splitting of the alef-bet, the splitting of the 42-Letter Name, the 72 Triplet Name. the Shema, and the Torah’s first verse.
The Four (4) Essential Elements
The 42-Letter Name, the 72 Triplet Name, the Shema’s first verse, and the Torah’s first verse. Four (4) essential elements split and combined.
Perhaps it is no coincidence that the Zohar in portion Vaera and elsewhere describes 4 basic creative elements: fire (aish), air (ruach), water (mayim), and dust (afar). These are the same four philosophical elements of ancient Greece, Egypt, and India. The Sefer Yetzirah, describing the basic elements in the universe before creation describes only three: air (אויר), water(מים) and fire (אש), whose initials (אמא) sum to 42. The difference between the two set of elements would be that the Zohar’s version includes the process of physicality represented by the Torah’s first verse.
Since the six(6) days of Creation in the Torah have exactly 434 words, the gematria of Dalet(דלת), the 4th letter of the alef-bet, of numerical value 4, perhaps, this too is a reference to the 4 elements, or 4 essences of Creation.
While we tend to think of an element as more scientific, and usually in terms of the fixed elements of the periodic table, actual atomic elements of matter, the original writings thought of them in more esoteric terms.
If we want to think in terms of the physical naturally occurring 92 elements of the periodic table, we can imagine them as next generation extensions of these 4 essences. Not only does the first and last letters (בצ) of the Torah’s first verse equal (2 + 90) = 92, but the sum of the words (units) in the 4 essences or portals, also equals (7+7+6+72) = 92. Moreover, as Peter points out, there are 92 Hebrew root words in the 7 days of Creation. At first, of the 92 elements on the periodic table (1 is hydrogen and 92 is uranium, the natural limit) 90 elements were known to occur naturally and 2 were synthesized by man before they were actually found in nature. Funny how that worked out: (בצ) or (90 and 2). The isotope mass of Uranium is 238.05078… so similar to 104/42 or 238.095, as if the natural limit to the physical elements is related to the 42-Letter Name of G-d.
We already know that the sum of the 3 Core Torah elements (words, verses, and letters) equals 58 and that the Torah is also partitioned into 670 paragraphs, 187 chapters, and 54 portions, so it may is it coincidental that (400,000 – (58 + 670 +187 + 54)) = 922, in other words that the 6 key elements of the Torah = (400,000 – 922) = (4 x 105 – 922)?
Is there meaning in 92/4 being equal 23, as in the 23 multiples of 37 amongst the combinations of the 7 words of Bereshit?
Instead of viewing our 4 key Torah elements as matrices, what if they were interdimensional hyper-mechanisms, for lack of a better word? Four (4) vehicles connected to the 4 letters of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) and 4 wings of the Alef (א). These are not vehicles in the sense that we normally think of vehicles that are to be driven, but as elements of exchange and creation, driving forces that breath vitality and even existence into our universe. In a very real sense, they are part and parcel of the Creator and Creative force Himself. This is why they carry the appellations “Names of G-d.” Granted, what we see of them may only be their dashboards, or even some 2-d slice or shadow of them as they cross our plane of existence, in the way Moses saw from a crevice, though a narrow slit, a scan (or slice) of the impression that was left after the essence of G-d passed by.
Even with our limited ability to grasp them, we can still engage them, even harness them. If this were not meant to be the case, they would not be here for us to find. Yes, it has taken us thousands of years to evolve to the point where we are ready to decipher and understand them, and to see them for the glory of what they truly are. The equations of connectivity are no longer proofs for us; they are schematics of how we are to reassemble them.
Where do we go from here? Let us back off for a breather before plunging deeper.
We Sold You Short on 390,625
We may have sold you short on the significance of the number 390,625. We have seen how absolutely precise and remarkable it is that the Creator of the Torah made all the elements work out precisely to 58. We have also seen several very important aspects about that, yet there was even more significance to choosing that number. First though, please take a look at how other contemporaneous ancient cultures viewed that number and try to fathom how they would have worked out any of the mathematics we have discussed so far, or are about to.
Given their counting systems, would they have ever been able to calculate that 625 was the square root of 390,625 and even if they figured out somehow that 10/2 + 10/8 = 6.25, would it have had any relevance to them, to the first 28 letters, etc. Counting back then, when used at all, was for strictly necessary and rudimentary accounting/transactional purposes, not for contemplating how they can incorporate the fundamental mathematical and physical constants of the universe into their stone carvings. Man would eventually get around to ponder these issues, first in calculating land partitioning for their agricultural needs and property rights issues, and then architecturally, and then more academically in trying to understand basic shapes and the relationship between their sides and then their angles. This would take thousands of years. The true explosion of mathematical knowledge has happened in the last few hundred years and then again with the advent of the calculating devices and the computer.
So, let us go back in time 3760 years ago when Abraham was writing about gematria and combinatorics, etc. and attributing his knowledge to G-d, and 3330 years ago when Moses received and understood the Torah with all its hidden mathematical algorithms and also attributed it to G-d. After seeing how the square root of 390,625 is 625, and how the 4th root is 25, and how its 8th root is remarkably the prime number 5, we can now discuss how its 16th root continues the pattern and is the square root of 5, or √5, making it integral to Phi(ϕ).
What we were remiss in mentioning earlier was that the cube root of 390,625 is 73.100443, self-referencing to the Torah’s first verse once again and remarkably similar to the number 9 divided by the 42-Letter Name, or 9/123049… = 73.141593. The resultant difference of .041150 is off by only .0562%
We were also remiss in not pointing out that the 5th root of 390,625 is 13.132639022019…. Yes, that would be the same 1.313 exponent that the Hebrew Alef-Bet is designed around; and yes, that would be the year 1313 BCE that the Israelites received the Torah, The 5 Books of Moses (390,625), on Mt. Sinai (130); and yes, that 1313 would be followed with the digits 26, the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton(יהוה). Are there any lingering doubts that any of this is coincidence?
A Blessed Gift
Why do we even say blessings? Chazal advises we should recite 100 of them every day. There is the philosophical debate over whether the Creator of the universe needs our repeated thanks or needs our appreciation for what He created. This is not the forum for that debate. Nor for the myriad explanations over the millennia for why we should recite blessings. After we explain a bit about what is in a blessing, you can decide for yourself from a different perspective if it might benefit you to recite them.
Most of the blessings we recite begin the same way: Baruch Atah Adonai or Baruch Atah Adonai Elohenu Melech Ha’oam (ברוך אתה יהוה, אלהינו מלך העולם). Do not pronounce it out-loud unless you are doing an actual blessing over something. That said, there is tremendous technology embedded in each and every blessing. We are at the point now where we can see the revealed numbers in the technology no longer as representative figures, but as gateways to the primal elements themselves. This makes the blessing an alchemic formula for how to properly harness them.
We have mentioned before that the word baruch meaning blessed, has a gematria sofit of 708. This is the numerical value of the 42 Letters of the Upper 42-Letter Name of G-d through which the Arizal explains all prayers and blessings must be processed. It is their entry portal into Binah (hyperspace).
The two next words Atah Adonai (אתה יהוה) have the gematria of (406 + 26) = 432, which is the frequency of Binah in our world, as we have previously explained, including its spreading forth through the two cubes (216 + 216) of the Tree-of-Life. So, let us concentrate on the second set of 3 words.
The kabbalists consider the letter Lamed (ל) an extension of the dimension of Binah because it is the only letter to extend above the upper plane. As it happens there are 3 Lameds (ל) in these 3 words, one in each word:
(אלוהינו מלך העולם), spaced out symmetrically.
The letter Lamed (ל) is also an extension of the dimension Binah because it has a complete numerical value of 42. Its standard value is 30, like the name Yehuda found 42 times in the Torah. Therefore, the product of the 3 Lameds (ל) is (30 x 30 x 30) = 303 = 27 x 1000 = 33 x 103. Their cubic nature within the blessing is very important and so is their connection to the 27 Letters of the alef-bet and 1000-unit relationship of the 72 Triplets, the first verse, the 42-Letter Name and the Shema, the 4 portals to Binah(hyperspace).
The letter Lamed (ל) is special for another reason. If you recall the letter values are representative of an energy spectrum based on an exponential scale. On that scale the letter Lamed (ל) = 1.31312 = 26.2528… If we flip the exponential power with the variable ordinal value of the alef-bet the letter Lamed (ל)’s spectral value becomes 121.313 = 26.1195…. This entire second spectral scale ranges from 1 to 57.889 from Alef(א) to Tav (ת), and the only letter that has a very similar value in both scales is the letter Lamed (ל). And while 26 is telling on its own as the value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה), the average between the two is (26.2528 + 26.1195)/2 = 26.18618625 or Phi(ϕ)2, 2.618; Phi(ϕ), 618; and 625, as the square root of 390,625, the total of the 3 basic Torah elements.
So now that we have separated out the 3 Lameds (ל), we see that the remaining letters complete the equations. Elohenu(אלהינו) without the Lamed (ל) has the numerical value 72, while Melech H’olam (מלך העולם) without the Lameds (ל) has the numerical value 181, which as we have seen is the 42nd prime. Moreover, there are 42 digits in the first 23 primes and those first 42 digits sum to 181, while the sum of the digits through 181 (the 42nd prime) is 378 which is the value of (Echad Usho Echad) from He and His Name are One. Also, there are 181 digits in 111!
Therefore, without the 3 Lameds (ל) the 3 words (אלוהינו מלך העולם) have the gematria (72 +181) = 253, as in the sum of the integers from 1 –22, as in the 22 letters of the alef-bet.
Regarding both 181 and 253, interestingly enough they are both Star numbers. As we mentioned earlier in these articles, Star numbers are fairly rare—there are only 12 of them less than a value of 1000—and besides forming a perfect Magen David they include 541, for Israel; 13 for Echad (One); and both 37 and 73 from the Torah’s first verse. Obviously, this is by design and has a purpose beyond symbolism. If we add the two Blessing components or alternatively the two consecutive Star Numbers, we get 434, the numerical value of the letter Dalet(ד), or 4, which as we just explained is representative of the 4 Essential Forces of the universe.
Then examining the 6 letters in those last two words Melech H’olam (מלך העולם), we see that the two final letters (ךם) have a value of 1100, and the two letters (מע) have a value of 110, and last two letters (וה) have a value of 11. Collectively, the 6 letters in those last two words have a value of 1221 or 11 x 111, or 11 alefs(א).
The total gematria of the blessing is 1003 or (903 plus 100), as in the suggested 100 blessings. Thus the recital of the blessings can connect us to 903, as in the sum of the integers from 1 – 42, meaning the full power of the 42-Letter Name, and as in Vayomer Elohim, the 10 Utterances of Creation. Meanwhile the full sofit value of the blessing, 3451, connects with 3450 plus One. The value 3450 is 10 x 345 (Moses/Hashem) and is representative of the 3450 Ets and V’ets in the Torah, the two Hands of G-d.
What we have learned is that each blessing contains an underlying equation that connects us to the Upper 42-Letter Name of G-d, the frequency of Binah, 11 alefs(א), the 72 Triplets, the 42-Letter Name and both the 22 and 27 letters of the alef-bet.
Could it be that we are the ones receiving the blessings when we recite them?
Once again, it is not about the numbers. Making connections to the numbers as you recite the blessings will not make a bit of difference. Focusing on the four points of the Alef (א) and picturing the upper and lower 42-Letter Names, the 72 Triplets, first verse of the Torah with the alef-bet lined up in the center will engage all 4 Creation essences and draw both inspiration and empowering energy to you. There are no buttons to push or batteries to install; we are engaging our predisposed consciousness to connect with points in hyperspace that are already there. The hyperspace is not in some far-off galaxy; it is all around us.
If we sum all the integers from 1 to 10, we get our special number 55. If we take each of those numbers as a fraction of 10, in other words divide 10 by each of those 10 integers and sum them, we get (10/1 + 10/2 + 10/3…10/10) = 29.28…, which all things considered might be a reference to the year (2928 HC) when the First Holy Temple was constructed.
Then when we raise each of those fractions of 10 to the power of the original integer, (10/x)x we get some more interesting results. For instance, the highest result of the 10 came from the number 4, which gives us 10/4 = 2.5 and thus (10/4)4 = 39.0625. Yes, this simple equation based on the number 4 and 10 gave us the sum or the words, letters, and verses in the Torah.
Another interesting number is generated by the number 3, as 10/3 = 3.333… and (10/3)3 = 37.037037…. Not only is 37 one of our 5 core primes integrated into the Torah’s first verse, but it is reminiscent of the 3701 value of the 42-Letter Name and 1/2701, its inverse counterpart. Moreover, the sum of 37.01 + .02701 = 37.03701
When we limit the calculation to 3.3333 the result is 37.0269 and 1/27.01 is .03702332 with the difference between them being (.03702592703 – .03702332) = .000000260234.
As discussed multiple times now the 42-Letter Name is comprised of 14 Triplets and the 3rd Triplet (קרע) has the numerical value of 370, which means that the 3rd Triplet = (10/3)3 and fits in nicely with this scale of 10.
What are we getting at here? Euler’s Number, also known as Napier’s Constant: 2.718281828459045…
While the divisions of 10 and their exponent results peak at 39.0625 for integers, the actual peak is when the number e = 2.718281828459045 is plugged in. 10/e = 3.678794 and (10/e)e = 39.59863. This is not by chance. Euler’s Number e, first developed in 1618, is a natural limit found throughout and integral to our base 10 mathematics. Indeed, the natural logarithm of a number x is defined as the base e logarithm of x: ln x = loge x.
Euler’s Number e is the unique number whose natural logarithm is equal to One(1). It is this tie to the number One(1) that makes Euler’s Number significant in our connections to the Torah’s design, yet it is its limiting or bounding factor that makes it so important in mathematics and to our physical universe. To be sure Euler’s Number will come up again in our discussions.
The 14 Triplets: Archetype Forces
Previously, we summed the 7 Triplets on the right side and the 7 Triplets on the left side and compared them to the 7 first words of the Torah. Now we will examine them row by row, comparing them left to right. These are the values of the 14 Triplets of the 42-Letter Name as they appear in the matrix, along with the results of subtracting the right-hand side from the left-hand side, row by row:
359 – 370 = 11
330 – 57 = 273
493 – 211 = 282
129 – 110 = 19
187 – 43 = 144
500 – 406 = 94
If we take a closer look at the first two rows:
500 – 6 = 494
359 – 370 = 11
We find that the two differences from the 1st and 2nd rows (494 + 11) when added together equal the numerical value of the first matriarch, Sarah, 505.
If we take a closer look at the last two rows:
187 – 43 = 144
500 – 406 = 94
We find that the differences from the 6th and 7th rows (144 + 94) taken together equal the numerical value of the last of the 4 matriarchs, Rachel, 238.
If we take a closer look at the 5th row:
129 – 110 = 19
We find that the difference in the 5th row between the two Triplets equals the numerical value of Eve, 19, and the row begins with the same letter Chet (ח) as Eve (חוה): חקבטנע The row also begins and ends with the initials of the Tree-of-Life (עח).
The central two letters (רצ) of the central 4th row equal the numerical value of Miriam, 290. This is also 248 + 42, as in the 248 columns and 42 rows of the Torah Matrix. The value 248 is the gematria of the permuted Hebrew words for “mercy” and “womb.” The 42-Letter Name is considered masculine energy, yet as we can see it is tempered and balanced with mayim nukva, feminine waters in kabbalah parlance. This is also why meditating on the Resh-Tzadi (רצ) in the center of the 42-Letter Name can help couples to get pregnant. A couple asked me for help a while back when they were having trouble getting pregnant and I advised them of this meditation and for the wife to use it during her mikve meditations. About 9 months later, she gave birth to a boy on Shabbat Pesach. I believe with the right spiritual intentions it could help someone meet their soulmate as well. Remember it is all about energy, and knowing what circuits to connect to is not hocus-pocus.
Following the same pattern as above, subtracting the right-hand side Triplet from the left-hand side Triplet of specific rows, yields yet another defining paradigm .
359 – 370 = 11
330 – 57 = 273
129 – 110 = 19
187 – 43 = 144
500 – 406 = 94
When we add the differences between the Triplets in the 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th and 7th rows we get 541, Israel, just as we got when we summed the pairs of the 11 Alef-bet splits.
Considering those 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th and 7th rows that yield Israel, simple math shows us that 2 x 3 x 5 x 6 x 7 = 30 x 42, and we have already discussed 30 as the value of the hyperspace dimension of Binah through the letter Lamed (ל) and that the 42-Letter name connects us to that dimension, and that 30 is the value of the name Yehuda, Leah’s son, and that the name Yehuda is found 42 times in the Torah. We should also mention that the Name Yehuda (יהודה) contains the Tetragrammaton (יהוה). What makes this discussion germane is that of those 5 rows the differences in the 2nd and 5th ones add up to 30.
359 – 370 = 11
129 – 110 = 19
500 – 6
Then when we add the value of the first Triplet (6) we get 36, the numerical value of Leah, the mother of Yehuda. The differences of the 2nd and 5th rows plus the first Triplet equals 36.
Applying the same exact formula to the 4th and 5th rows provides us with the value of the final matriarch.
493 – 211 = 282
129 – 110 = 19
500 – 6
The differences of 4th and 5th rows plus the first Triplet equals 307, the numerical value of Rebecca.
Before we get into why these feminine archetypes are built into the 42-Letter Name, we should point out that their 6 Initials (ח,ל,מ,ר,ר,ש) total (300+200+200+40+30+8) or 778. A reference to 5778 in the 6th millenium?
The Earth, the Sun, and the Moon
There is one more significant result derived from this simple formula and it pertains to the 3rd row:
330 – 57 = 273
While, the 6th Triplet (יכש) equals 330 or (6 x 55) and has an ordinal value of 42, the 9th Triplet (חקב) has a value of exactly 1/3 that and equals (13 + 42 + 55). What brings this all together is that the difference between the Triplets in the 3rd row, 273, is the numerical value of (13 x 42 x 55)/(13 + 42 + 55). We have seen the significance of the special sequence 13, 42, 55 and also how it pertains specifically to the Shema so this is yet another deep integration between two of the 4 Essential Elements of the universe.
Furthermore, the value 273 is also the gematria of the word “gematria,” and more significantly the value of Absolute Zero, -273˚ C, the point where everything freezes, and 273˚K (0˚ C) is the point where water freezes.
The significance of building the value 273 into the 42-Letter Name is greater than you can imagine and is aligned with the Creator’s goals in building it into the framework and structure of our universe and in particular our solar system. While the surface temperature of the Sun is 5778˚K, the core temperature of the Sun is 27.3 million degrees Fahrenheit, and sunspots (places of relative coolness) revolve around the Sun in exactly 27.3 days, the same 27.3 days that our Moon orbits the Earth. Meanwhile, the ratio of the Moon’s diameter over the Earth’s diameter is .273. Diameter is not just a distance. It means the Moon’s overall size and spherical volume is 27.3% of the Earth’s, even as it revolves around that Earth at the same exact 27.3-day pace that the sunspots are revolving around the Sun’s surface.
Furthermore, the amount of time the Moon takes to complete one turn on its axis with respect to the stars (a sidereal day) is also 27.3 days. On a darker note, our Moon’s period of rotation matches its time of revolution around the Earth, and since it takes the Moon the same amount of time to turn on its axis as it takes it to go completely around the Earth, we always side the exact same side of the moon. This is why we never see the dark side.
In a more basic geometric sense, the area of a square is 27.3% larger than the area of a circle inscribed or drawn inside it. This is significant because it means the number and proportion 27.3 plays a major role as a ratio when we go from the basic 2-d square and 3-dimensional cube to the circles and spheres we find all around us.
To many, this may be our most controversial revelations yet. There is a specific deliberate design to our solar system that follows a blueprint and not natural laws of physics. For much more about the actual and beautiful symmetry in the schematics of our solar system, including how the Earth orbits the Sun at 66,600 mph and how the Sun, Moon, and Earth are all created to the same proportionate dimensions, including their angle of inclination and their distances apart, see our article on Time.
Whether we can yet fathom this or not, the facts are real and whoever designed the Torah and the 4 Essential Elements of the Universe not only knew them but incorporated those dimensional facts and blueprints into them. We can only imagine that these integrated design elements are there to help us harness and escape the system.
On a simpler note, the balance between the Sun and Moon is also a balance or interplay between kabbalistically masculine (Sun) energy and female (Moon) energy, or two symbiotic forces. By the way, the small gematria of the Hebrew word for “the Sun (החמה)” is 5845, as in the 5845 verses in the Torah, and its standard gematria is 58. While the small gematria of “The Moon(הלבנה)” is 53255 making (The Moon/The Sun) = 53255/5845 = 9.111, and the standard gematria of the “The Moon” is 92, as in the 92 physical elements. Kabbalistically, this makes sense as the Moon, being associated with female type energy is hence associated with physicality and manifestation in the physical world. It also makes sense because the isotope mass of Uranium, the 92nd and last of the natural elements, is 238.0… and while that number is equivalent to 104/42, the number 238 is the numerical value of the energy archetype of Rachel, the difference built-into the 42-Letter Name’s final two levels, the 6th and 7th, the levels of physicality and manifestation.
The different energetic levels between the Sun and the Moon is reflected in their ordinal values. The Sun’s (חמה) ordinal value is 26, reflecting its relationship with the masculine energetic dynamic of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) associated with the full 7 levels of the 42-Letter Name. The Moon’s (לבנה) ordinal value is 33, for a difference of (33-26) = 7 between them, reflecting the 7 levels that the energy is stepped down before it can be harnessed on our physical plane. It is akin to electricity necessarily being stepped down from when it leaves the generator at the power plant to us charging our delicate phones at home. If we were to plug them in directly, they would simply explode and the energy would be useless to us. The 42-Letter Name is not some massive devise through which all the energy that enters our physical universe is processed, but it is designed to be reflective of that process and tapped into it so that when properly used it can help us to correctly harness that immense energy and possibilities.
The male/female energetic symbiotic relationship is reflected in the full row versus Triplet differentials that we find in the 42-Letter Name. In kabbalistic terms it is front verse back. A simpler understanding of this is found in the Adam/Eve archetypical relationship. The Torah tells us Eve(חוה) of numerical value 19 came from Adam(אדם)’s side. Adam has a numerical value 45. Subtracting Eve (19) from Adam (45) we get 45 -19 = 26, the masculine Tetragrammaton (יהוה). Furthermore, the difference between (26 – 19) is 7 once again. Perhaps this is why the archetype Eve was built into the 42-Letter Name Matrix.
The Torah tells us in the portion Chaye Sarah, or “This is the life of Sarah,” that she lived 127 years, one hundred, twenty, and seven (7). We discussed this previously and saw how 127 was the number of unique value combinations that could be made with 7 elements and the same holds true with the 7 rows of the 14 Triplet differences. So, this innocuous statement may be a code to us, considering elsewhere the Torah tells us man ‘s age is 120, and this mysterious sequence of the Matriarch names begins with Sarah for the first two rows. There are many possibly telling combinations amongst those 127 as you might expect, none of which sum to the names of the Patriarchs. Therefore, it is pretty clear, that this type of subtractive processing was designed to channel the feminine energies (Mayim nukva). Moreover, the differences in the 3rd and 4th rows total 555 and Chaye Sarah is the 5th portion in the Torah and found at paragraph 55. Another possible clue is that 555/127 = 4.3701, bringing the total value of the 42-Letter Name into the equation as one of the 4 Essential Elements.
330 – 57 = 273
493 – 211 = 282
According to Kabbalistic principles the mayim nukva or feminine waters gets triggered or awakened from a provocation above and once it starts flowing upward it is met with a powerful acceptance above and a powerful response of downward flowing masculine energy. This has little to do with male or female and more to do with two opposite but similar attractive forces. It is similar to the way lightning really works. In the clouds above, positive charges build up in the top of cloud and negative ones in the bottom, causing positive charges to pile up at high points in the earth below. The cloud sends out a thin invisible stepped leader of negative charges, causing and inspiring the earth to send out a string (flow) of positive charged energy to meet it. When they meet the negative charges then flow in force and lightening happens, heating the air to 54,000 degrees.
The two charges or energy types are complementary and symbiotic, and any model of our universe or Torah schematics must take them into account.
The Patriarchal/Matriarchal names are indicative of specific portals or energy processing centers/filters that have corresponding pairings. The 42-Letter Name orders this process for us. The way the process lines up is that Sarah would draw/receive the energy from the higher hyperspace dimension (Binah) and channel it to Rivka, who “shared her tent.” It would then split and spread out to Leah and after several steps it would reach Rachel, the ultimate attractive force and a reflection of Sarah. The mayim nukva would then rise up and be energized and centered through Eve and Miriam. At the center (רצ) of the 42-Letter Name is what can be called the Well of Miriam, where the ascending and descending masculine and feminine waters meet. It is for this reason that the Patriarchs and Matriarchs are always encountering each other at the Well, including Moses and Tzippora.
The rising waters/energy would then attract and meet up with strong empowering energy from Binah. What this means for us is that we receive an inspiration from above in seed level form, then process it through different stages and levels in our world, including sharing it and taking actionable steps to manifest it. At this point the positive energy we are generating attracts a powerful helping boost from above.
500 – 6 = 494
359 – 370 = 11
129 – 110 = 19
500 – 406 = 94
Would any discussion of any of the 4 Essences of Creation be complete without the Creator working Phi into the equation? The differences in the 1st, 2nd, 5th, and 7th rows total 618 or 1/Phi(ϕ). Since the 14 Triplet differences incorporated the energetic archetypes of the 6 Matriarchs—Sarah, Leah, Rivka, Eve, Miriam, and Rachel—we can take them as a whole unit. What we find is that the sum of their gematria values (505, 36, 307, 19, 290, and 238) = 1395 plus the sum of their ordinal values (46, 18, 46, 11, 56 and 40) plus 6 for the complete value of the 6 Matriarchs is 1618, as in Phi (1.618).
Reuniting the 4 Forces of Creation
Obviously, the universe did not start off with 4 Essences of Creation. In the beginning there was only One. Reintegrating them is an end goal and a means to prop open the portal. To do this we will need to employ several of the methodologies that our analysis of the Torah has taught us; in other words, we need to use the clues or breadcrumbs dropped for us.
The First 8 Words of the Torah.
The 72 Triplets.
The First Verse of the Shema.
The 42-Letter Name.
They are found at Bereshit 1:1; Shemot 14:19; Devarim 6:4; and allegedly at Bereshit 1:1. We say allegedly, though we will prove that it is, because the 42 letters are permutations of the first 42 letters and with the exception of a specific 3 of them, they are incarnations of the Torah’s letters and not the actual same letters themselves. One of the clues that we have been exploring is that these verses are divided into meaningful Triplets: 11 in Bereshit; 72 in the 72 Names; and 14 in the 42-Letter Name. We also learned that the first verse in the Shema is a combination of the Triplet Shema (שמע) of numerical value 410 and of the Upper 42-Letter Name of value 708, translating to “Listen to G-d on High”, or “Holy G-d”, either way totaling 15 Triplets.
The 4 essential forces of Creation are composed of a total of 112 Triplets, representing the three (3) essential spiritual forces of the Universe as defined in the Sefer Yetzirah: Ehyeh (אהיה) of numerical value 21; the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) of numerical value 26; and Adonai (אדני) of numerical value 65.
Another clue we have learned is to use the initials of words to help guide us to their source. Thus, when we sum the initials of the 72 Triplets and the 14 Triplets of the 72 Names and the 42-Letter Name respectively we get 2672 and 1170 for a total of 3842. The numbers themselves are telling 26–72, 11–70 and 38-42, but that is not the point. Neither is it that 72 + 14 = 86, the numerical value of Elohim (אלהים). Their combined value of 3842 is the exact value of the first 42 Letters of the Torah that permute to/from the 42-Letters in the 42-Letter Name.
Let that sink in for a moment. The 72 Names and the 42-Letter Name are integrally connected at their source, and so is Bereshit. What does Bereshit mean? “In the Beginning.”
It also means that the 72-Letter verse Shemot 4:19 “וַיִּסַּע מַלְאַךְ הָאֱלֹהִים, הַהֹלֵךְ לִפְנֵי מַחֲנֵה יִשְׂרָאֵל, וַיֵּלֶךְ, מֵאַחֲרֵיהֶם; וַיִּסַּע עַמּוּד הֶעָנָן, מִפְּנֵיהֶם, וַיַּעֲמֹד, מֵאַחֲרֵיהֶם. And the angel of God, who went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of cloud removed from before them, and stood behind them,” and the 14 initials of the 14 Triplets in the 42-Letter Name together equal 3842, which in turn equals the first 42 Letters in the Torah. Therein lies another clue for another day.
Meanwhile, the sum of the initials of the 11 Triplets of Bereshit and the 15 Triplets from the Shema total 1273, as in the 401273 total core elements of the Torah. Therfore, the 26 initials of these 26 Triplets equal 1273.
All together the 112 initials of the 112 Triplets total 3842 + 1273 or 5115. Another lesson we have been taught is to examine proportions or the relationship between key numbers, and as such we find that 3842/1273 = 3.018 or very close to 1273/3842 = 1/3. So too is 26/86 or the 26 initials/86 initials, in other words the Tetragrammaton (יהוה)/Elohim (אלהים). In terms of the 4 Forces of Creation it can also be read as the (Shema and Bereshit)/(42-Letter Name and 72 Names). And proportionally (the Shema and the first 8 words of Bereshit) are 1/3 of the One source for the (42-Letter Name and the 72 Names). Lots of clues to interpret here. All in due time.
The unification of the 3 essential Names Ehyeh (אהיה), the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) and Adonai (אדני); and also of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה)/Elohim (אלהים) that equal 112 has long been known to the kabbalists. They often refer to this unification as Yabok of numerical value 112, the river where Jacob defeated the dark angel. Again, the Torah is making clear the analogy of the river and flowing energy with these essential forces.
Meanwhile, the sofit gematria value of those 112 initials since the 10th Triplet of Bereshit begins with tzadi sofit(ץ) is 5925.
One clue to our next step in this integration process is found in the words of the Shema’s first verse that we set aside in lieu of the Upper 42-Letter name. Starting with the Yud(י) in Israel and ending with the Dalet (ד) in Echad, the 8 Triplets’ initials total 46, as in the kabbalistically interchangeable Me’ah (מאה), Amah (אמה) and Ha’em(האם), or 100, cubit and the mother (Binah) respectively. In a previous article we discussed the derivation of the cubit (27.5”) from the total value of the 4 aspects of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) or (232 + 39 + 4) = 275. If we were to add the numerical value of those 4 aspects of the Tetragrammaton (275) to the value of the initials of the 112 Triplets of the 4 Essences of Creation(5925), we would get (5925 + 275) = 6200, or Keter (620) x 10.
As proof that this connection to the cubit is truly part of this equation, involving the unification of the 4 essential forces of the universe, we need to take note that the cube root of the cubit, or 3√27.5 = 3.018 = 3842/1273.
Moreover, the sum of (112 + 275) = 387, the numerical value of the 3rd row of the 42-Letter Name.
While this is a key part of the ultimate unification process, we must also take into account that according to the Ramchal, the height of the 3rd and Future Holy Temple is 100 cubits high, specifically corresponding to Keter, and that the unified essential Light force emanates from the Holy of Holies through the gate of 42, then the 100 cubit by 100 cubit inner courtyard, and then to the 4 directions through the 4 gates of Binah in the 4 walls of that courtyard.
More about the Temple design later. Nevertheless, is it so surprising that the necessary tools we would need to build the Future Holy Temple would be integrated into the most important elements of the Torah, into the Names of G-d themselves?
We could be asking why the Creator of the Torah gave us more than one Name of G-d. Why not simplify matters for us with a single Name? Would that really be simplifying things though?
By giving us 4 different elements to work with, 112 different Triplets, we are receiving so much more data with which to help us reengineer the circuitry. Imagine how much more complex our task would be if we would only have a single 4-Letter Name to work with. It might take us another 1000 years, all the way to 3018 to unravel the code. It might take us far longer than that.
Each Triplet is a gateway. Each gateway is an entry point of understanding. Each gateway has a unique purpose and energy. The beauty is that all the gateways are linked in specific arrays. Some of those arrays were given to us in the form of specific Names of G-d. And some of those Names when we got close to them transmitted the knowledge to us where to find even more arrays and the links to them. As we stayed close, eventually the larger networking became more and more apparent. This is by design. This is what is known as G-d’s Mercy. This is a specific and necessary process.
This process has been known to the true kabbalists (not the astrology reading, jewelry selling, mind manipulating charlatans) for millennia. They defined each of the Names of G-d as a different aspect of G-d. They advised that the only way to get close to the Source was though the understanding of the specific Names and the only way to get close to a Name was through humility. You must make yourself small.
When you approach a gateway, stay there, humble yourself, the gateway will grow and so will your understanding. Where people have gotten off track and lost is by taking the kernel of understanding they first receive (and most people who approach do) and running with it, expanding their ego to create grandiose schematics and philosophies. Sometimes these illusions and delusions attract thousands and even millions of adherents. Sometimes they just drive the practitioner mad. Either way they are flawed in that by making themselves too large to fit through the gate they separated themselves from the source, and thus from truth. In recent decades entire organizations were concocted to take advantage of the system and pretend that it was they who were the disseminators of the truth, guardians of the gates, and that they had to be paid to give you what the system offered freely as they addicted you to their illusions.
Still, as a teacher once pointed out to me, they served a purpose. Like a flower or plant attracting organisms to approach and carry off its seeds, so too do these gateways. It is all those disparate kernels of truth now floating out there that cause people to awaken. As they say in Spanish: Nadie sabe para quien trabaja (No one knows for whom they work). If enough of those awakened souls can survive the technological illusory onslaught and humble themselves, we will all be able to enter the gateways and work together from the inside to unravel the next levels of codes leading to the Source.
According to the true Kabbalists, your easiest and suggested entry gate is the 42-Letter Name. Also, the longer you linger there, the greater will be your understanding, the wider the gate will open, and the greater access you will have to all other gates. Always return to your entry gate. Always reenter from the same gate. The other advice of the true kabbalists is appreciation. That goes hand in hand with humility. Be in awe of what you find in the works of the Creator.
