In the Beginning of the Beginning
Are Towers and Wells equals and opposites?
The Torah begins with an enlarged letter Bet(ב). Then in the 50th and final chapter in the Torah’s first Book, Genesis (Bereshit), there is an enlarged final Mem (ם). The Zohar and Arizal tell us that the few enlarged letters in the Torah connect us to the realm of Binah (Understanding), which we now know to be the Plane of Potentiality. Together, the two enlarged letters Bet-Mem(בם), spell out numerically 42. While the letter Bet(ב) is the first letter in the Torah and thus of the Book of Genesis, the last or final letter of that Book is Mem (ם), once again giving us Bet-Mem(בם), literally Biblical bookends. Indeed, the last word in the Book of Genesis is B’Mitzra’im(במצרים), which not only begins and ends with Bet-Mem(בם), but begins with Bet-Mem(בם) as well. Even the two central letters of B’Mitzra’im(במצרים) are the two central letters (רצ) of the 42-Letter Name. For anyone that has not been following this series from its inception, you can find the entire work here.
One more connection that ties these first and last words together is that they both have the same small gematria, 76.
These are new revelations, but of not great import to us at the moment, as we already know the significance of the Upper and Lower 42-Letter Names.
What is significant is that the Bet-Mem(בם) is clearly anchored at the first letter of the Torah. What is significant is that is carries through all of Creation.
This redundancy in the word B’Mitzra’im(במצרים) and as part of the Book Bereshit (בראשית) is the same as we saw with the first and last letters, Lamed (ל) and the Bet(ב), and the last two letters (לב) of the species Lulav(לולב) that matched the first and last letters of the entire Torah, but in reverse order.
The next Book in the Torah, Exodus or Shemot (Names) begins, “These are the Names (שמות ואלה),” alternatively translated as “42 Names.” If we join B’Mitzra’im(במצרים) the last word in Genesis with V’Eleh (ואלה), the first word in Exodus, we get numerically (382 + 42) = 424, Moshiach Ben David. This is another new revelation, but not of great import to us either for similar reasons.
What is significant, though, is that the effect of the 42-Letter Name did not end at Egypt but expanded. It would pass through and protect the Israelites during the 210 (רי) years they were in Egypt “B’Mitzra’im(במצרים).”
Some may fear that we are trying to elevate the status of Egypt by pointing out the connection of the word “In Egypt” to “In the Beginning.” On the contrary, we are elevating the status of G-d’s words—not within universe because that would be impossible—within the minds of those that do not fully understand them. All the words have a purpose, several in fact, and all the words contain hidden treasures.
The First Letter
We have already discussed the significance of the design of the first letter of the alphabet, Alef(א) and all its connections to Phi(φ). The first letter of the Torah was chosen to be Bet(ב) though. It is the second letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Why was Bet(ב) chosen to lead off the Torah and be part of the Bet-Mem(בם)?
As we discussed in a recent section, there is an important equation in which the spelled-out letter Bet(בית) x Phi(φ) = (בית)φ = 412φ = 666.63. The result of this unification of Bet(בית) and the primordial constant Phi(φ) is a nice one, as it works out to exactly 2/3 of 1000, which is Binah. This result is also the portion not associated with darkness (333). It is not so nice if like most people you have mistranslated and misinterpreted ancient texts that read “understanding of the number 666” as “mark of the beast.” That is entirely irrelevant though, as the real reason Bet(בית) was chosen to lead off the Torah is that 412 is 3 times the Phi(φ) angle (137.5o).
Why is it so important to begin the Torah with a letter equivalent to 3 times the Phi(φ) angle (137.5o)? Because once or twice does not escape the circle. Growth begins, when the generation process passes 360o. Moreover, Genesis is a formula for Creation, and it must start at the very beginning.
The letter Bet(ב) is composed of 3 letters Vav(ו ו ו) for several reasons. One of which was to clue us in to the 3 equal measures of the Phi(φ) angle (137.5o), the 3 turns of the generator, when we were ready to understand. Those who were not, will simply see 3 sixes.
There was another secret that was kept between Bet(ב) and the Phi(φ) angle. Being the second (2nd) letter, Bet(ב) has the numerical value of 2, and 2 times the Phi(φ) angle (137.5o) = 275 which is equivalent to the secret and ancient cubit (27.5”).
The letter Bet(בית) also spells out the Hebrew word for “house,” as in Beit YHVH and Beit HaElohim “House of God (האלהים בית and יהוה בית)” and “Beit HaMikdash (בֵּית־הַמִּקְדָּשׁ), The Holy Temple.” So how ingenious was it to build into it the necessary Phi(φ) angle and the critical measure of the cubit necessary to build those Houses of G-d and hide them away for us in plain sight! Every year for 3330 years at the end of the 22-day Holiday cycle, we have raised the Torah and made an eye connection to that first letter. Only a handful of people have ever known why. To the rest it was a reminder, missed or not, to pay attention to the first letter Bet(בית).
The cycle of the 54 portions begin anew with that connection to the enlarged Bet(ב) and the Torah unfolds from it like the spiraling seeds and petals in a cosmic flower. To those that understood, tracing each of the 3 branches of the Bet(ב) was akin to refreshing Creation anew. A year forms a circle. Time is just a form. That 22-day Holiday cycle begins on the “1st of Tishrei (בתשרי א),” which permutes to Bereshit (בראשית).
The Stack of 21
We have spoken about the spelled-out letter Alef(אלף) extensively, and for good reason, and now the letter Bet(בית) as well, covering two of the first three letters of the Torah. And long ago, once upon a time, in a section of this series, we spoke about how the sum of all the spelled out names of the 22 Hebrew letters equaled 4248, and how that reflected the natural log of 70, or ln (70) = 4.248 495,and about the Primal Equation, which was (1/.23571113… = 4.24248100…). We already know that all this is by design, purposeful advanced intelligent design, as the Torah is a matrix of 42 rows by 248 columns, so we will jump ahead to the point. The number 4248 is also reflective of the magnetic precession (42.48 or 42.49 Mhz/T), that gyromagnetic ratio of precession which governs the spin of all particles and pivots from the Plane or Inertia (Potentiality), the magnetic to dielectric ratio.
We have previously spoken extensively about the incredible properties of the Tower of Truth based on 212 and the 20 stacked cubes from 13 – 203. We have also discussed the addition of the amazing 21st cube (213) that gives us the mysterious repetitive 18-digit Fibonacci sequence. Now we see that when we add together the first 21 spelled-out letters of the Alef-bet, in other words (111 + 412 +…360), we get a sum of 3842, out of a total 4248.
Astonishingly, the total of 3842 for the 21 spelled-out letters matches the total of the Torah’s first 42 Letters, the same 42 letters integrally intertwined with the 42 Letters of the Name of G-d. I assure you; this is no coincidence and the significance of this cannot be overstated.
Equals and Opposites. One of the most common forms of gematria is Atbash, in which the value of the letters are the exact opposite of their counterparts at the far end of the alphabet. As such, the standard value of the letter Alef(א), or 1, is transformed into the letter Tav (ת) and is now worth 400. Using gematria atbash, the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) transforms into another form and aspect of the Tetragrammaton(מצפצ) of numerical value 300, like the 21st letter, Shin (ש).
Using gematria atbash the Name Ehyeh (אהיה) of numerical value 21 and associated with Binah, the Plane of Potentiality, becomes the Name (תצמצ) of numerical value 620, that of Keter, the highest level. Nevertheless, and the reason we went here is that in atbash, Bet(ב), the 2nd letter, is converted to the 21st letter, Shin (ש).
It cannot be coincidental that the spelled-out letter Shin (שין) has a numerical value of 360, as in the 360o in a circle. In our previous section we spoke about how the letters are also archetype depictions of the underlaying primal forces and movements, and that in all likelihood the letter Shin (ש) depicts the potentiality of the Wave field. Now we seem to be implying that it depicts a circle and a wave. Oddly enough, there is no incongruency in this. Waves are just a series of 180o loops above and below a midline axis. A single wavelength flipped over does not necessarily form a circle but will form a closed loop, even a torus. When Phi(φ) gets involved, we get the equation (180o – 137.5o) = 42.5o. When this happens, a pressure or potentiality is available in every wave and every semi-circle for it to grow harmonically along the Phi(φ) scale. We saw that simple pressure applied (or potentiality activated) in the growth of the vortices.
In this way, the Alef-bet is designed so that its sum, 4248 and thus its entirety is incorporated into the universe so that it reflects all potentiality, and that it is involved in all harmonics, growth, creation, and life, exactly as the ancient Kabbalists told us.
We have seen the special properties of water intertwined with the dynamics of Phi(φ), so it is not surprising that these dynamics are an integral part of the Creation formula. “The Water (המים)” of numerical value 95, is first found in the Torah’s 2nd, or Bet(ב), verse, at the 21st, or Shin (ש), word of the Torah, and this relationship is reflected in the Creation equation as the Phi(φ) angle (137.5o – 95o) = 42.5o.
If we subtract the value of the Torah’s first verse (2701) from the 3842 sum of the 21 spelled-out letters of the alef-bet, or alternatively from the Torah’s first 42 Letters, we get (3842 – 2701) = 1141. Adding 2 for the kolel gives us 1143, as in the first row of the 72 Triplets, and the average of the 8 columns, which is also 1143. These are just examples of further integration of the 4 components of the 112 Triplets, this time taking into account the order and spelling of the Alef-bet.
Wells and Squares
Are Towers and Wells meant to be more than physical objects. Are they meant to be more than just bridges to higher dimensions? Could they also possibly represent pressure mediation, the forces upon the fields that create the interactions we know as physicality.
The 3 channels of Light, YHVH (יהוה) + Ehyeh (אהיה) + Adonai (אדני), that enter the Holy Temple of numerical value 112 are triplicated. Those 3 sets of Triplet Names then form 9 Names, which correspond to the 9 quadrants of the Courtyards. Each of those 9 quadrants measures 100 x 100 cubits square without their enclosing walls, or 900 x 900 cubits in total, representing the final letter Tzadi (ץ) of numerical value 900 of the 27 letters of the Alef-bet squared. Are these cells or quadrants wells?
The small gematria sum of these 3 channels of Light is 76, which is the same as that of the 6 letters of the first word of the Torah, “Bereshit (בראשית), In the beginning.” Another way to read the word Bereshit (בראשית) is as “6 wells,” or the “6th well(באר).”
Specifically regarding the 6th of the 7 wells that Isaac dug, we read in Genesis 26:22, “He then moved away from there and dug another well. This time it was not disputed, so he named it Wide Spaces (Rechovoth). ‘Now God will grant us wide open spaces,” he said. ‘We can be fruitful in the land’.” The word Rechovoth (רחובות) is the plural of Rechov (רחוב), which is found in the Torah and in numerous times in Tanahk as describing a square or large plaza, as it is in Ezra, Ester and Ezekiel.
So, the 6th Well of the 6 Wells seem to correspond to open spaces and to large squares.
Further to that point, the Alter Rebbe, Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi, refers to the term “Rechovot Hanahar,” which was used to describe the place that the 6th of the 8 Kings of Edom came from: “The first hei of Havayah is bina, ‘Rechovot Hanahar’, and contains length and breadth etc. (See Sefer Hamaamarim 5659, English translation p. 30) like the letter hei.” He is alluding to “Rechovot Hanahar,” translated as “Avenues on the River,” as the expansion of the river of Binah that descends from the Sea of Binah.
What is this connection between the Wells and wellsprings of Binah to the expanse (length and breadth) of the squares and what at all does it have to do with the physics and metaphysics we have been discussing?
The connection is the Light of Binah that is being drawn down from the 3 Sets of Triplet Names, a force or pressure upon the fields of potentiality.
Why the reference to 6 wells, or the 6th well, and the 6th King?
To quote the Zohar, “…When the Holy One blessed be He, brought the Creation into manifest existence, he emanated the six ….But, since the Higher World is concealed, and everything that is associated with it is also concealed, the verse states ‘Bereshit…’ [meaning] ‘bara –‘[created]’- sheit’. Six supernal days.” This concept of “Created 6” is found numerous times in the Zohar regarding parsha Bereshit, including in Tikkunei Zohar, Tikkun 11, 69, etc.
Elsewhere we learn that the Torah is Zeir Anpin. Zeir Anpin, as previously explained, is comprised of 6 bundled dimensions, which manifests itself as the 6 directions of a cube. Science and string theory also bundle those 6 dimensions as a 6-dimensional Calabi–Yau manifold. You can see in this 2-d depiction of the Calabi–Yau manifold why the 6 sides of a cube are so much easier for us to comprehend.
The Light of Binah enters our world through the dimensionality of Zeir Anpin, hence a well must be dug through our world in each of the 6 directions to reach it and open all the wellsprings. The Philistines kept trying to fill the wells with earth, much as they do today, and deceived strangers kept challenging and accusing Isaac also as they do today, anything to stop the Light from flowing. Digging the wells is obviously a metaphor, a good one, and the Zohar goes on and on to explain the process.
The connection to 210 again and to the 72 Triplets will be reinforced shortly.
Wells of Living Waters
Isaac was digging the same wells that his father Abraham had dug, as he too had been tasked with releasing the life force into our world through the 6 channels of Zeir Anpin. When he dug the 4th Well, the Torah specifically states that Isaac “found a new well” one “brimming over with fresh spring water (be’er mayim chayim).” While the first two initials (מב) of “well of living waters” start with 42, as we saw for the Book of Genesis.
All 3 (מבח) initials add up to 50, as in the 50 Gates of Binah, and as in the 50-cubit height of the Gates of the Holy Temple through which the living water must flow into our world. It should also be pointed out that the first Gate that the well of living waters must pass through is the Gate of 42, the entrance to the Holy of Holies. The full numerical value of the phrase be’er mayim chayim is 360, as in the light from the 4th Well spreading out in a circle of 360 degrees. Once again, we see the circle built into in the movement of energy flow. We now understand that it is a wave function as well.
Moreover, with the kolel for the 3 words, the phrase “well of living waters” has the numerical value (363), the same as “The Anointed One, H’Moshiach.” Its initials have a complete value equal to the source of Binah(the Plane of Potentiality), which is Chochma(73); and its final letters have the value of the 5 final letters of the Alef-bet (280), associated with the end-of-days. Even the first 4 letters in the phrase (be’er mayim chayim) spell out Abram(אברם). The Torah and the Zohar spend a lot of time talking about these wells for a reason.
The wide-open spaces and squares associated with the wells of our forefathers reflect the 4-sided walled courtyards of the Holy Temple and the springs of living waters are the founts of Light that will enter them when the wells are once again dug out. Chochma will engage the potentiality in Binah, which will engage Zeir Anpin, which will properly initiate all the forces in our world.
An odd apparent contradiction occurs in the Torah right after Isaac names the 6th well Rechovot in the 6th portion of the Torah. But first, we must note that the word Rechovoth (רחבות) as spelled here is very telling. The first two letters (רח) have the same numerical value of Isaac(208); the first 3 letters (רחב) have the numerical value 210; the first 4 letters (רחבו) have the numerical value 216, as in the 216 letters in the 72 Triplets and as in (6 x 6 x 6); and the entire word Rechovoth (רחבות) has the same numerical value (616) as “The Torah (התורה). Since the Torah is Zeir Anpin and since Zeir Anpin is 6 dimensions, this allusion is very appropriate and draws our attention deeper into the 6 of the 7 wells.
The 7th Well
The apparent contraction mentioned above occurs with the 7th Well. In Genesis 26:32, Isaac’s servants found the well. Then Isaac “names the well Shibah. The city is therefore called Beer-Sheba to this very day.” It was named the Seventh (7th) Well. All well and good, except in Genesis 22:19, four chapters earlier, “Abraham returned to his young men, and together they set out and went to Beer-Sheba. Abraham remained in Beer-Sheba.”
So how could Isaac have discovered and named what already existed in the time of his father?
We can surmise that Abraham too had dug the 7th Well there and that maybe both Isaac and his father had been divinely guided there. Nevertheless, maybe the Torah was purposely drawing our attention to Beer-Sheba and the 7th Well that possibly existed all along. Moreover, the words “until this very day” indicate that the 7th Well, Beer-Sheba is still there now, today.
As we said earlier, time is circular. Creation happens repeatedly. Moreover, even if something in the Torah does not makes sense to us physically it does not mean that it is any less G-d given or that we should pay any less attention to the specific words. Indeed, we should probably pay even more attention to them. Nowhere in the Torah does it say that the meaning is blatant, obvious, and literal. The simple fact that the entire Torah is highly encoded reveals that there are hidden meanings beneath the surface.
Are we responsible for the 6 Wells, and the 7th Well is there to collect all the Light?
Are the 6 Wells actually hidden within the Torah itself?
Continuing with the narrative in Genesis, right after “Abraham remained in Beer-Sheba,” we learn specifically that Sarah lived to be 127 years old, curiously broken down to 100 and 20 and 7 years.
There are 13 gates in total in the Holy Temple: The Gate of 42, the Sanctuary Gate, the 3 Gates of the Inner Courtyard, the 3 Gates of the Outer Courtyard, and the 5 Gates of the Temple Mount. All the Gates are 50 cubits high except the 6-cubit high Gate of 42. All the Gates are 10 cubits wide except the 7-cubit wide Gate of 42. Collectively this makes the width of all the Gates exactly 127 cubits wide, meaning the exit flow of the living waters from the Holy Temple into our world is by a breadth of 127 cubits. The first restriction is through the 7-cubit wide Gate of the Holy of Holies. Their collective height would be 606 cubits. The gematria of Sarah is 505. Is there a connection we are supposed to make between Sarah and Abraham and the Gates and the Wells/Courtyards/Spaces?
As discussed much earlier in this series, the gematria of Sarah is 505 and the gematria sofit of Abraham is 808. Like the collective height of the gates, 606 cubits, they are all simple multiples of the 26th prime number, 101, injecting the Tetragrammaton(יהוה) into the equation.
It is interesting that once again 6 as in 6 x 101 and as in the 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin associated with the Tetragrammaton(יהוה) are built into the system of the Gates as well as the 6-cubit thick walls through which they are bored.
Besides the simple combination of (26 + 101)= 127, the numerical sum of the Patriarch and Matriarch (808 + 505) = 1313, giving us 13 (echad and ahava, Oneness and love) x 101; the year the Torah was received on Mt Sinai, 1313 BCE; and the exponential number (1.313) with which the Alef-bet is Created.
It is apparent the Torah was drawing our attention to the significance of the connection between Abraham and Sarah and the Spaces/Structures to the Gates of the Holy Temple. That connection is the Male-Female or opposite force relationship. We will explain how this applies to the Holy Temple soon, but we have seen this dynamic in every aspect of our physical and metaphysical universe and specifically in our centrifugal and centripetal forces within the fields. We are also being shown that they must all obey Phi(φ) in that Sarah, Abraham and their sum (505, 808, 1313) follow the basic Phi(φ)/Fibonacci sequence (…5, 8, 13…).
Of the 4 species, the one associated with Zeir Anpin is the Lulav (לולב) also associated with the Torah as explained above. The complete value of the species Lulav (לולב) is 100, as in each quadrant of the Temple Courtyards. It is divided into 68 for its standard gematria and 32 for its ordinal value, matching the design of the Holy Temple and the universe flawlessly. Given the central 32 cubits of the Central Altar and of the Holy of Holies, there are 68 cubits emanating from them to the Walls of the Inner Courtyard and to the edge of the Temple Building respectively. That the Universe is comprised of 68% Dark (Unknown or Unfathomable) Energy surrounding 32% unknown and known matter is precisely the point.
Of the entire universe only 5% consists of the fundamental particles that we know about, only 1/20th of the known universe. Does this known fundamental matter and energy exist only at the nexus of dark energy and dark matter? Does it only exist at the Inertial Plane or event horizon between them?
There is thought to be a little less than 5% of the universe known matter thought to exist, so given the first 21 letters of the Alef-bet equals the first 42 letters of the Torah, the remaining letter of the Alef-bet, the Tav(ת) is equal to 1/22nd or 4.55% matches physical matter. The Kabbalists have long explained that the letter Tav(ת) is the letter that connects to physicality, and it appears there are underlying metaphysical reasons why.
There is no physical proof of the existence of either dark energy and dark matter or of what they could consist of. Our physicists have only calculated that they cannot account for the matter or the state of our universe as it is without it.
What is Light?
That the walls of the Courtyards and of the Holy Temple are 6 cubits wide is the same reason that during Sukkot we shake the 4 species in 6 directions, and that there are 6 Wells of Creation. They all correspond to the Vav(ו) of the Tetragrammaton(יהוה), and to the 6 bundled dimensions of Zeir Anpin through which the Light of Binah must be processed before we can share it. Since we already know electricity is not what we generally think it is and that it involves the complex interaction of dielectric and magnetic fields, polarity, potentiality, centrifugal and centripetal forces and more, we cannot begin to describe the true complexity of these bundled 6 dimensions. Fortunately, the understanding is right there for us to grasp in Binah, once we learn the proper codes and alignments.
Light is typically understood as some super-fast particle, or particle-wave, or even as some hyper form of energy that we cannot really express. To better understand the nature of the Kabbalistic term for Light, we can turn to Nikola Tesla. He was perhaps the greatest genius of our race, and obviously one of the most connected consciousnesses to the Binah hyperspace Potentiality. Tesla was responsible for around 80% or our technology today and 99.999% of our electricity. His definition of light is that it is nothing more than a longitudinal [z-axis] disturbance in the ether, including alternating compressions and refractions. He compared them to sound waves that are nothing more than disturbances in the air. It is a little more complicated, but his point was that something is causing or emanating the disturbances and that something is causing light-speed waves to issue forth in space, not specific quanta of energy or matter traveling at that speed. We are not trying to undo your notions of physics, just open up the concept of what Light is in terms of the Creator.
When the Torah says “The Light is Good” it is not referring to Edison’s light bulb, who by the way owes much of his success to Tesla. This next point is important to understand in order to grasp how the different dimensions can exist simultaneously in the same space and interact with one another. The Light is a pattern of an original emanation that travels nearly instantaneously through the dimensions. Of course, it is good; it is existence. Nothing exists outside of it, not even the darkness.
The 4 Species Again
As it turns out, the collective value of the Lulav (לולב), the Hadas (הדס), and the Aravah (ערבה) that we wave around equals 414, twice the numerical value of the Hebrew word for Light, Ohr. And with their 11 letters they total 425, as in the 42.5o magnetic precession and the precession of the centrifugal and centripetal vortices and the 8th of the 72 Triplets. We do the shaking in 6 directions and if done right, the angle would be about 42.5o though nothing specific is dictated. Maybe, though, we should wave it in circles about 42.5o wide, making ourselves the point of Potentiality.
We spoke of the Lulav and Hadas together and of all 4 species together, and thus we now find that the value the Lulav (לולב) and Aravah (ערבה) together is 345, representing the value of the Name Moses(משה), the Word for G-d, Hashem (השם) and the 5th Triplet (מהש) of the 72 Triplets, said to be a source of healing. On the other hand, Hadas (הדס) and Aravah (ערבה) have the numerical value 346, that of “His Name (שמו), or twice 173, the small gematria value of the 42-Letter Name.
The Second Letter
The letter Resh(ר), is the second letter in the Torah, between the Bet(ב) and the Alef(א) in the first Triplet (ברא) and in the words “create” and “well.” The letter Resh(ר) is the 20th letter in Alef-bet and when spelled out (ריש) has a value of 510. It can be argued that the design of the letter Resh (ריש) includes the Tower of Truth in that the Resh-Yud (רי) combination equals 210 as in the height of the Tower of 20 cubes. That Tower would stand upon the circle represented by the Shin (ש). The Tower and the Well.
As Peter is about to point out, if we add the ordinal value of the Resh-Yud (רי), which is 30, to the value of the Shin (ש), which is 300, the letter Resh (ריש) gives us the height and base of the Pyramid in cubits and levels, 330, and 210 respectively. Contrived? Perhaps.
During the shaking on Sukkot we shake, or maybe should wave the 4 species in a circular motion in all 6 directions. Since every motion or force has an equal and opposite one, the 42.5o precession will thus occur in all 12 directions.
This means that the total precession covering the 6 directions of Zeir Anpin is 510, like the value of the spelled-out letter Resh (ריש).
Of the 22 or even 27 letters of the Alef-bet there are only two letters that are curved, the 20th letter Resh(ר), and letter Caf (כ) of numerical value 20. Together their value is 220. We know that the form of the letters are intelligently designed from beyond our realm of consciousness and that they are designed to depict particular primal fields, forces, or movements. What these two letters depict we cannot yet grasp, but we do know that the total values of the 22 letters is 1495 and that (1495 – 220) = 1275 and that 1275 = (42.5o x 30). By the way, there are 30 shakings every day on Sukkot, and 210 over the 7 days. And while Resh-Yud (רי) equals 210, their ordinal value is 30.Contrived? No. Abraham Avinu linked these two letters 3800 years ago as influencing the month of Elul, the month of Creation, one of 12 such pairs influencing the circular year.
The Summit of the 72 Triplets
What is this 2nd letter in the Torah, Resh (ריש), reminiscent of? Let us recall that the third letter in the Torah and first letter in the Alef-bet is Alef(אלף). Also that the 2nd letter in the Alef-bet, and first in the Torah, Bet(ב), in gematria cipher atbash is converted to the 21st letter, Shin (ש), which when spelled-out Shin (שין) has a numerical value of 360, as in the 360o in a circle.
In the center of the 72 Triplet Pyramid, there is the 4 Triplet platform, the 28th and 29th and at the very center the 36th and 37th Triplets. The central 4 letters (הראד) of that central platform add up to 210, as in the Resh-Yud (רי) of Resh (ריש); and the outer 4 letters of the platform (שמיי) add up to 360, as in the letter Shin (ש), completing the Resh (ריש).
It cannot be overlooked that the ratio of 210 to 360 or 210/360 is equivalent to 42/72.
That 210/360 ratio is also .58333 or (1 – .41666), quite similar to the 58/42 split that we found the alef-bet forming as we zipped apart the odd-even letters. Nevertheless, and much more germane is that the average letter value of the 64 Triplets that form the 8000-value square within the 72 Triplets is exactly 41.666.
The middle 4 letters (אנני), of numerical value 111, the same as Alef(אלף).
So, is this a hidden Well and/or Tower at the center of the 72 Triplets?
As we ponder the relationship between the Tower given by 210 and Well by 360 and frequencies and fields, I am going to tell you now that in the end the answer boils down to mastering this shape and equation as it applies to the human body, to particle and all physics, to Creation, and to metaphysics:
And with the proper explanations it is the same as with all the models that we have been examining. Meanwhile, it is important for us to recall that given that there are 4 letters in the Tetragrammaton (יהוה) associated with the 4 Essential Forces and Movements, the first four (4) prime numbers (2,3,5,7) when multiplied together equal 210. These 4 first prime numbers are the number 210’s unique prime factorization. Furthermore, the rest of the prime numbers less than 210, all 42 of them, when added together in matching pairs (i.e. 11 + 199) equal 210. That makes it so that all 46 first primes–reminiscent of the 46 chromosomes in our bodies that are also arranged in pairs–combine to form the number 210. This is also the last prime number in all infinity where this happens.
It not only makes that Tower at the very center of the 72 Triplets stand out uniquely within the universe, but literally hands us the number 210 as a linchpin to a cosmic puzzle.
When we sum the ordinal position of the 4 platform Triplets, 28, 29, 36 and 37, they equal 130, as in the numerical value of Mt Sinai, and “sulam (ladder),” and as in the first 3 letters in Chochma (חכמה) and Binah (בינה), which also sum up to (68 + 62) = 130.
On the surface, the gematria of the 4 summit Triplets are indistinctive, yet when we utilize their complete gematria as a cipher to their understanding the 28th Triplet has a value of 333; the 29th has a value for 260, as in the Tetragrammaton (יהוה); the 36th Triplet has a value of 125 or 53; and the 37th has a value of 86, as in in Elohim (אלהים). Once we have applied this appropriate prism, we can now see that the difference between the 28th and 29th Triplets is 73 and the one between the 36th and 37th is 39, both quite telling numbers amongst themselves, but collectively, (73 + 39) = 112, connecting us to the full 112 Triplets and the 112 Chakra or “vortex” system within our bodies.
The complete value of the 28th Triplet being 333, is the value of the word for darkness, H’chosech (הַחשֶׁךְ), as we saw in the equation provided by the 4th verse of the Torah, “And God saw that the light was good; and God divided the light from the darkness (וַיַּרְא אֱלֹהִים אֶת הָאוֹר כִּי טוֹב וַיַּבְדֵּל אֱלֹהִים בֵּין הָאוֹר וּבֵין הַחשֶׁךְ). Moreover, Since the outer 4 letters of the summit platform (שמיי) that add up to 360, as in the letter Shin (ש), have an ordinal value of 54, their complete numerical value is 414, which is twice Light (אוֹר) and thus maintains the 2:1 Light to darkness proportion of the 4th verse. Their 414 value is also the collective value of the Lulav (לולב), the Hadas (הדס), and the Aravah (ערבה).
Then, as Peter pointed out, the sum of the values of the two central Triplets, the 36th and 37th, equals 155, which matches the sum of the atomic weights of the 3 metals prescribed for use in the Mishkan (Tabernacle): Copper (29); Silver (47); and Gold (79). The Torah goes on and on about the use of these 3 metals: including how they were collected, counted, proportioned; how they were to be utilized; and precisely where they were to be used in minute detail and under what circumstances. A great deal of the Torah text is dedicated to the descriptions of these 3 metals, none of which has anything to do with wealth, only charitable contributions and spiritual construction, with the exception of the Golden Calf, which was deceptive charitable contribution for false spiritual construction.
While, 36 and 37 together is 73, as in Chochma, Wisdom, with its connection back to the Torah’s first verse, the sum of the ordinal value of all 4 platform Triplets, 130, plus the ordinal values of the 12 letters in them (123) equals 253, the sum of the integers from 1 – 22.
The reference to the 22 letters of the alef-bet at the center seems like a trivial point alongside the aforementioned glittering revelation, but it is an important cosmic hint not to be overlooked.
The question that keeps coming up with each new revelation is what is the significance of 210? Is it a frequency? A wavelength? We know it is front and center with Creation. Do we need to find the 6 Wells first?
Wrapping Up Sukkot
Abraham Avinu in the Sefer Yetzirah has shared with us that the universe was created with Books, text, number and communication, all of numerical value 340 (ספר) or 8 x 42.5, and we find that when we take the 4 Species of numerical value 1024, as in the 1024 or 210 word values in the Torah, and align or add it to the 336 letters in the 112 Triplets of the 4 Essential Elements, we get 1360, or 4 x 340.
Finally, as Rav Abraham Abulafia of blessed memory points out, the sum of all the elements of the Sukkot: the Sukkah (91), the Sach (100), and the 4 Species (1024) add up to 1215, the numerical value for the Hebrew phrase “70 Languages,” with whom the light of the cosmic holiday is supposed to be shared.
It is no coincidence that the first 3 Triplets of the Torah also add up to 1215.
In this world we can physically or virtually do the work; however, if we align our consciousness, we can link up with the Binah hyperspace and effect change beyond the scope of physical reality. What all 4 cosmic holidays and their 4 perspective instruments have in common is that they all involve Man making a conscious choice and using his hand (Yad,יד). Abraham and Isaac had to dig for the wells. They were already there, yet they both had to physically remove the earth.
In the next section we will discuss the importance of the Hakafot (encircling), the squaring of the circle, and the male-female dynamic.
