The Divine Metaphor; Nuclear Fusion and the Bible.

The Zohar tells us 600,000 angels accompanied the 70 Israelites (Jacob’s family) into Egypt, and in our last article (on parsha VaYigash) we also learned from the Zohar that the chariot Joseph harnessed and rode to greet his father was of angelic (divine) origin, the same one that appeared in Ezekiel’s famous vision. In a few weeks (17 chapters or 50 paragraphs, from now), we’ll read in the Torah (parsha BeShalach) how Pharaoh sent 600 chariots chasing after the 600,000 Israelites, who had just used the 70 Angels (Triplets, Names) to split and cross the Sea of Reeds. Let’s take a moment to examine all that. We know that 17 is the numerical value of Tov (good) and always implies this when designated specifically in the Torah, such as Joseph’s age when he was sold by his brothers and such as the 17 good years Jacob lived in Egypt (Goshen). We also know that 50, or an interval of 50, always refers to the 50 Gates of Binah and in turn to the 50-year jubilee period. So it can be easily inferred that this period from the entrance of Jacob and his 70 family members with their 600,000 escorting angles to their 600,000 descendants exit 210 years later was a good thing and that it relates to Binah and the jubilee counting system. And indeed, we know from the Zohar that they did overcome the negativity of Egypt and reach the 50th Gate of Binah at Mt Sinai, 210 years later. Moreover, those 210 years were exactly 4.2 jubilee years, a reference to the al-important 42-Letter Name of G-d....

The flaming sword

The first portion of the Torah, Bereshit, has 146 verses, corresponding to the numerical value of the word, Olam, world.  At the 80th verse, we encounter the revolving flaming sword that G-d uses to block Adam’s (Man’s) reentry into the Garden of Eden, thus splitting the Torah portion into 80 and 66 verses.  It also separates those 80 verses from the rest of the Torah.  Interestingly, the letter Pe has a numerical value of 80 and there are 4805 of them in the Torah, while the entire Torah has exactly 304805 letters, meaning that if take a cue from Bereshit and the flaming sword of separation and we split off the 4805 Pes, we get 4805 and 300,000 letters. Now knowing that nothing in the Torah is coincidental we find it further interesting that when we take the Pe (80) out of 4805, we’re left with the digits, 45, which is the numerical value of Adam, or Man. One reason for the connection to Pe, is that it is the final letter in the name of the Aleph-bet’s first letter, Aleph (ELP) signifying the beginning or seed level, and since we know that there exists a primordial Aleph preceding the Bet of Bereshit (the Torah’s first written letter), we might surmise that the primordial (or heavenly) Aleph extends to the 80th verse, and can’t go any further because of the sin of Adam and because the world after that point is a world of physicality. This is an obviously clue for us to examine deeper the first 80 verses, etc. Do note though that the 304805 letters of the...

Isaac Luria = Moshe = Ehyeh = the highest level

How are Moses and the Arizal related? What is their essence? And what level were they at? The 3 letters of Moshe Rabbeinu, Moses’ name, is spelled (MShH) and when it is spelled out it is MM ShYN HY which has a numerical value of (80 + 360 + 15) = 455 which is the same numerical value of Isaac Luria, the Arizal’s actual name. This value, 455, just so happens to be the same as the 3 aspects of Eyheh, the higher Name of G-d, together, which are respectively 161. 151, and 143 and used extensively in his divine calculations. It also is the hidden meaning in Meah Shanah, 100 years, from Bereshit 23:1 in describing Sarah’s life, of which we’ve previously;y connected to Moshe, the Ari, David H’Melech and the Messiah, H’Mashiach in several other posts. Shanah has the numerical value of 355 and when we add the 100 for Meah, we get 455. And since 100 represents Keter, crown, the highest level, just as Ehyeh is the highest Name, 455 signifies a high point. Now, speaking of 100, the Arizal likes to expand the value of yud (10) especially when it is in the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) to 100 to reflect the fuller 10 sub-sefirot (dimensions) within each sefira. In teh case of the 3rd aspect of the Tetragrammaton, the one that reflects the bundled 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin (YVD HE VEV HE) there are 3 alefs, and the Ari connects these to the 3 expanded Ehyehs mentioned above that each begin with the letter Alef. Since the numerical value of the spelled-out alef is 111,...

Shakings of the Lulav

Regarding the daily shakening of the four species, they would seem to correspond to (5 sets x 6 directions) the 30 blasts of the shofar, and the numerical gematria value (30) of the large Lamed (connected to Binah) in the Torah. That Lamed connects to the Lamed of Lulav; the Lamed that along with the letter Pe controls the month of Tishrei (Libra) in which we do both the shofar blowings and the shakings; and the lamed of aleph (the first), when the controlling letters of Tishrei are completed (Aleph-Lamed-Pe) and connected to both keter and the beginning, as in Aleph B’Tishrei (permutated to spell Bereshit, the beginning). With the 3 shakings/direction, corresponding to the 3 beats per type of blast of the shofar, there are 18 total shakings per set, and as Rav Abraham Brandwein points out, “The Lulav hints at the vertebral column that has 18 vertebrae and every movement indicates vitality. Thus all 4 species need to be damp and alive and not dry.” The 18 corresponds to the value of the word, chai, (life). And straightening this connection is that the word value of lulav is 68, as in chaim (life) With 18 shaking per each of the 5 sets there are 91 total shakings per day, which corresponds to amen and union of G-d’s names that it represents (YHVH-ADNY ) and to the value of the word Succah itself. Moreover, at 30 daily shakenings x 7 days, there are 210 total shakings, as in the 210 years of Egyptian exile. And when the 3 shakings per direction are considered, there  are 210 x 3...
