It’s Not Your Imagination; Things Are Heating Up!

Preheat oven to 5778K. Mix all the ingredients for 6 days, let it set, then bake in the speed-of-light convection oven at 173 petawatts for 5778 years until it reaches at temperature of 57.78 degrees. Remove Earth from oven and voila!

We found G-d’s recipe book.

Yes, it’s getting hotter globally. Hottest first  6 months on record and July seems even hotter, but this isn’t the weather channel. We explained last year that the 100-year average surface temperature on earth was headed towards 57.78 degrees and this year that steady rise has shifted into high gear.

When in 5-6 years the average temperature hits 57.78 degrees Fahrenheit, it’ll be numerically exactly 1.00% of the Sun’s surface temperature as measured in Kelvins, 5778 K.

It’ll also be the year 5778 (2018 CE) in the Hebrew calendar, the year prophesied for the coming of the Moshiach (Messiah). None of this is new to readers of this blog, but I did want to add a little more insight toward the bigger picture unfolding around us.

As the tzaddikm were well aware and as is written in the Zohar, Moses was given 173 keys, which really referred to the 42-Letter Name of G-d whose gematria value summed up to 173.  The 42-Letter Name is more powerful than any of us will probably know and I’ve personally have witnessed glimpses of that power and how it bends the so-called natural forces (laws) of our universe, which we call miracles, but we’ve written about that and will do so again elsewhere.  Nevertheless, 173 relates back to the sun, whose surface temperature is 5778 K in that the total energy that the Earth receives from the Sun is 173 Petawatts (a petawatt is a quadrillion [or million billion] watts). Imagine that!

That’s a lot of symmetry, considering that according to the sages, it’s the understanding of the 42-letter Name that will help bring in the Moshiach. But there’s more and there always will be more as we can no more comprehend the scope of G-d’s designs than we can His greatness.  If we take that solar power reaching Earth and divide it by the speed of light (299,792,458 m/s) we get 577065885, which is not exactly indicative of 5778 or even 5777.78. Nevertheless, if in the equation we take the square root of 3 (1.7320508…) instead of the ridiculously rounded off and large 173,000,000,000,000 watts, we get:

 the total energy of the sun on earth = (√3  x 1015)/(speed of light)= 5777.5 x 103

 That the square root of 3 would relate to the 42-Letter Name or this solar equation that brings together the Earth and Sun in some sort of harmonic relationship is not so surprising. After all, the square root of 5 is at the root of the Torah’s design as well as that of everything natural in the universe though the constant Phi (1.618033…), and that the number 5778 is precisely Phi18

No, somehow it all makes sense.  Since the dawn of Biblical creation, the earth will have circled the Sun 5778 times (or Phi18 times), equivalent to the surface temperature of that Sun (5778K), lets say 1 degree for each encircling, and during that period, at the speed of light, the Sun sheds 173 Petawatts of energy on the Earth, warming it’s surface (with our help most recently) to 57.78 degrees F, or .o1 degree for each encircling.  And when we divide that 173 Petawatts of energy by the speed of light which is the speed that energy would have traveled to get to the Earth we see that they are related by a factor of 5777.5

Light, Energy, Heat, Sun, Earth, Time; they are all related, intertwined. And they are all winding down, or winding up to a moment just 5-6 years from now when it will all be clear to us.

While the puzzle is being unfolded around us, the answers as taught by the tzaddikim are not to be found in this world, but in the spiritual one as what is played out here is nothing more than a reflection of a shadow there.  The two artifacts we were given to peer into that world are the Torah and the 42-Letter Name of G-d, which is why it’s at the center of the life-giving transference of the Sun’s power to our planet. And this is why it’s apropos that we reveal it at the time of year we read about the 42 journeys the Israelites made in crossing from Egypt to the Promised Land.

The equations above are more than just numbers; they also represent a formula, or a recipe if you will: Preheat oven to 5778K. Mix all the ingredients for 6 days, let it set, then bake in the speed-of-light convection oven at 173 petawatts for 5778 years until it reaches at temperature of 57.78 degrees.  Remove Earth from oven and voila!

The question is what do we get?

Passover is More Than You Think; Pesach is More Than You Can Imagine.

The Shabbat prior to Pesach (Passover) is called Shabbat HaGadol (the Great Shabbath). The word HaGadol occurs 26 times in the Torah, the same numerical value of the Tetragrammaon (YHVH) and 18 of those times the word HaGadol  (HGDL) is written with the cholam (vowel) instead of the Vav, giving it a numerical value of 42, the same as the 42-Letter Name of G-d. The number 18 is the well-known numerical value of Chai (life) and not coincidentally the square root of 18 is 4.2426, with 424 being the value of Moshiach Ben David. And all this is only to provide us with clues.

The real significance of this is that Shabbat HaGadol acts as a gateway to Pesach, much as the Gate of 42 is the final gate before entering the Holy of Holies in the Holy Temples, including the Future Holy Temple. This gateway to Pesach is more than a metaphor.

According to the sages  the first and last verses of the Torah link together seamlessly to form a complete cycle, or circle, which is why they are read together contiguous every year around the holiday of Sukkot. This analogy of an annual cycle is strengthen by the design which splits the 19 words into the 7 words of the first verse and the 12 of the last.  We realign our 12-month lunar cycles with our solar ones in cycles of 7 and 19, and this keeps the calendar progressing at an even pace and guides which portions of the Torah are read in which week in any given year.

One Shabbat not long ago I challenged my 8-year-old daughter to figure out which letters of the Hebrew alphabet were not included in the Torah’s first verse. She promptly figured out all 11 of them, and then added, “Why don’t we check the last verse too.” Since I consider EVERYONE to be my teacher, especially my children, we did. Lo and behold, there were 20 letters utilized and only 2 that weren’t:  Pe and Samech.

Samech and Pe spelled Saf (SP), as in end, threshold, but not a word we find in the Torah per se.  Nevertheless, there are 12 days of preparation, when we read a special portion of the Torah daily, leading to the 7 days of Pesach, which is spelled Pe, Samech, and Chet spell Pesach (PSCh).

The end of the Chet(Ch), which according to the sages gets circumcised at Pesach and become a He(H); hence chametz (ChMZ) is transformed into matzah (MZH).

So joining the Chet to the Pe and Samech, left 19 letters and begged the question: Why were these three letters isolated? Why was Pesach considered outside the realm of the annual cycle?

It is because the 7 days of Pesach are actually another dimension entirely, and once we climb the 15 steps of the seder to enter it, we are beyond the earthly realm. This is why there is another seder at the end of Pesach, to ease our descent back down.  This is also why all the cleaning for Pesach is essential. It’s a cleansing, or purification, process that prepares us to align ourselves with the energy of this higher dimension.

Pesach is a gift, the diamond set in the ring opposite the cyclical closure of the Torah’s first and last verses around Sukkot 6 months earlier.

The exodus from Egypt brought the Israelites to another dimension as well, a higher state, a place of Keter as indicated by the 620 letters in the 10 Commandments.  They too left all there chametz (personal garbage/klippot/negativity behind) and went through a final cleansing as they passed through the Sea of Reeds.

Getting rid of all the chametz in our lives is about disconnecting from the physicality; it’s a preparation for the time of Moshiach (the Messiah), which B”H will be upon us very soon. For nearly 3330 years, ever since the exodus and the reception of the Torah at Sinai, we’ve been rehearsing every Spring for the arrival of Moshiach consciousness. Except, most of us have treated it as Biblical reenactment, or even as a family gathering. It was nice, but we missed the point.

This time around, once we cross over, we should find (feel) joy in everything.  Each letter and word of the Passover Haggadah should ignite us with happiness. And every moment in this paradisaical dimension should feel, well, like Heaven. To the extent that it doesn’t reveals how much more cleansing we need to do in order to see through the darkened veils.

When we take away these 7 days of the year from the annual cycle of 365, we’re left with 358 days and 358 is the numerical value of Moshiach.  Likewise, the 210 years of exile in Egypt plus Pesach (PSCh of numerical value 148) equals 358.

So let’s all scrub and clean and cleanse the physicality out of our lives, so that we can climb easily into this higher dimension called Pesach, experience the otherworldly pleasures within, and after 7 days we can return from this vacation refreshed and rejuvenated. Or better yet, return without descending, bringing the Moshiach consciousness back with us, like a cloak of dew upon the spring grasses, helping to prepare our world for what is to come. Pesach is as much a community event as it is a personal one and it’s our responsibility to bring back and spread that consciousness for the sake of our brethren.

On Sukkot we make a space for that world within our own and connect to Keter. On Pesach (PE SMC ChYT) whose letters when spelled out with the kolel have the same numerical value as Keter, 620, we leave our world and ascend to that lofty dimension.

This year, as we circle the stellar ring, let’s grab that brilliant diamond and bring it home.

 Chag Pesach Sameach

May this be an amazing Pesach for us all,


The Sun and the Moon; Why Limit the Torah? A Matrix of 72,000.

If our thoughts, minds and imagination aren’t limited, why should the Torah be? Just because the part we can see is physically constructed of a set number of letters and spaces laid out in a definitive matrix, why can’t there be more there than meets the eye.

Let’s say we can expand the Torah Matrix of 248 columns by 42 rows, totaling 10416 lines, beyond their arbitrary artificial borders. Let’s say we did it 7 fold, or 7 times, as in the time cycle of 7 with which for spiritual reasons we Biblically count our days, weeks, and jubilee years.  The cycle of 7 is a spiritual pumping mechanism in which every Shabbot the holy sparks we’ve uncovered that week are raised up (as if by elevator) and deposited above, exchanged for spiritual sustenance before we descend again for the next 6 days.

If we did expand the Torah 7 fold, we’d get 10416 x 7 = 72912, whose square root is 270.222, evocative of the 22 and 27 building blocks of the Hebrew alphabet, which are the prima fascia physical manifestations of the primordial black fire, and it’s also evocative of the number 2701, the numerical value of the Torah’s first verse.

Sure, this expansion is arbitrary, but in a Torah model that we already know works out two different ways to exactly 58, why would we think there is any way that the Torah is meant to be simply 2-dimensional?

So for arguments sack, let’s say that the Torah matrix of 248 x 42 is 7 layers deep. It could be 70, or could be whatever, but at 7 levels deep we know that there are 72912 character spaces in a long narrow slab like shape.  And while we’re at it, why can’t we fold that slab over, twist it, turn it into a ring, a mobius strip, or torus? We can of course, and it would never change what we see on the surface: “In the beginning G-d created Heaven and Earth…”

So what if the 42 rows times the number of columns x 7 layers worked out to a precise–we won’t say perfect, because the Torah is always perfect–72,000 lines? What would that mean? For starters, if we divide the cubic volume of 72,000 lines by 7 (it’s depth) and by 42 (it’s height), the resultant length of the Torah would be a very plausible 244.8 columns, given that most current Torahs are either 245 or 248 columns in length. These 244.8 columns are, of course, so reminiscent of the year 2448 which is when the Israelites received the Torah at Mt Sinai.

Remember, this is hypothetical. Nevertheless, let’s take those 72,000 lines at the given 29.31944 letters/line which we’ve previously showed to be the Torah’s average per line. It works out to 2111000 letters.  Then, if one letter were to equal one day in time, the 72,000 lines would be equivalent to 5779.50 years, or in the Western calendar, the year 2019 CE, as constantly keeps coming up for the final redemption (geula), and as in line with the prophecies of the tzaddikim.

In keeping with the concept of cycles and time, let’s see if this relates to the lunar months upon which the Hebrew calendar is based. Since there are not 29.319 days in a lunar month, but actually 29.53059 days/month, the resultant 5779.5 years is equal to 71485 lunar months. And the difference between 72,000 and 71485 is 515, which is analogous to the 515 times that Moses prayed to enter the Promised Land, which, according to the sages, would have brought the final redemption right then.  It’s also notably akin to the 515 hours between Rosh Hashannah (head of the lunar/solar year) and Hoshana Rabba (the checking of the lunar shadow and the sealing of our annual fate). Once again, cycles, this time annual.

Nevertheless, let’s get back to our primordial space/time unit that the Torah matrix was designed upon, the square root of 5. One of the fundamental Names of G-d, the “I am” in “I am that I am,” Ehyeh (EHYH) when spelled out in its highest form has a numerical value of 161 and 161/√5 = 72.00, evocative for sure of the 72 Names of G-d that were physically constructed from the 3 consecutive 72-letter verses of Exodus that bridged the Red Sea (Endless Sea).

We can thus say that this matrix of 72,000 character spaces is comprised of 1000 spatial units of Ehyeh(161/√5 ) , or 1000 x 72.00.  Think about it because this is not an easy simple concept and it’s a very different way to conceive of the Torah and indeed of time/space.  The Names of G-d are not static letter written on sheet of parchment.

Obviously, these 72 Names (triplets) existed spiritually long before the black fire coalesced at Creation and we see that the collective sum of the square roots of the individual 72 Names is 720.0, or 10 times 72.00, which is 10 times 161/√5 which is the numerical equivalent of the “spiritual space” of Ehyeh in each of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) that comprise the Tree-of-life. There are also 10 letters in Ehyeh (ELP HY YVD HY spelled out, reflecting its expansion throughout the 10 sub-sefirot (dimensions) of each dimension.

Please note that the 72 Names, like the Torah and the 42-Letter Name of G-d are designed to form a specific matrix, an 8 column by 9 row one, and that when sum the collective square roots of each of the sum of the numerical values of the names in the 9 rows, we get improbably 280.0, the counter part to (1000 – 720.0). Please recall that the expanded 72,000 character Torah matrix is 1000 units of Ehyeh.

If the 72 triplets were set in any other matrix, this would not have worked out this way, The Divine Calendarand neither would the fact that there are only two places amongst the 72 triplets where letters have back to back triple tagin (crowns): column 5, row 7 and column 7, row 8, or 5-7-7-8 5778 HC (2018 CE), anyone? Don’t forget 5778 years are just 5778 cycles of Earth circling the sun whose surface temperature is 5778 K.

As we enjoy the intense celestial light shows presented by the record solar flares being shot directly from the Sun to the Earth  this year, do we have any doubts that there isn’t a greater design purpose here?


Shavua Tov





A Tidbit about the 600,000 Component Letters of the Torah.

We’re going to explore and develop every aspect of our previous article on the primordial derivations of the Torah and try to keep them short. Today, we want to begin at the place where the black fire begin to take shape into the letters we recognize today.  As we’ve previously written about, the 304,805 letters in the Torah are comprised of exactly (600,000-408) component letters. This means that the 27 building blocks–and we do mean blocks as we’ll get into soon in another article–are broken down individually into their component parts and a letter such as Alef becomes Yud, Vav, Vav, Yud as determined by the Arizal.  This also means that the 27 building blocks are made up of 50 separate parts and that these 50 letter segments are comprised of only 10 individual and indivisible letter.  Kabbalistically this makes perfect sense as 50 is always representative of the 50 Gates of Binah and 10 of the 10 sefirot that comprise Tree-of-life reality and what our modern physicists call our 10-dimensional universe.  And while the Torah is our bridge to Binah (the upper world) it is indeed built up of the essence of the Tree-of-life.

Being a bridge to Binah, the Torah that we know, the physically formed one, is Zeir Anpin, a heavenly ladder comprised of 6 rungs bundled together, or as our string theorists say, knotted.  The number 6 and the collective 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin is thus represented by the letter Vav. We say all this in order to point out that when the swirling black fire solidified amongst the white fire, it coalesced into only 599592 component letters and not 600,000, which to us would seem more appropriate. Nevertheless, 599592 is (600,000 – 408) and 408 letter Vavs have a collective numerical value of 2448, as in the year the 600,000 Israelites left Egypt chased by pharaoh’s 600 choice chariots and received the 10 Commandments, the year the gates opened and the Tree-of-life reality was made available to them.  They were just entering the 50th jubilee period since Adam,  a Biblical defined period of 50 years each, precisely because it connects to Binah.  It is also a date precisely 66.6 jubilee years before 5778, the year (2018 CE) prophesied by the tzaddikim for the geula (final redemption), the union of Zeir Anpin with Binah.

Farfetched? Maybe, but they why is the logarithm of 599,592 equal to 5.7778 and log of 600,000 equal to 5.778. And since as we’ve explained in the previous article and Nothing is Random in the Universe, the split in time appears destined to occur between 2018 (5778 HC) and 2019 CE why is the square root of 408 equivalent to 20.19. And if you shrug off that, why is the collective sum of the square roots of total gematria value of each Torah letter when broken down to its component parts (ie. the square root of the  27059 Alefs in the Torah times 32 (the value of Y,V,V,Y) equal to 20191.07 with the sum of the integers through 107 being equal to 5778.

Why indeed?

Everything has a purpose. We must remember that in our daily lives as well, if we want to connect our physicality to the spiritual and harness it. If we look at the Torah as a collection of stories then that’s what it’ll be; if we look at our lives that way we can’t expect them to be much more than that either.  The Torah has no limitations, as we’ll continue explaining in our next posts.  Our lives don’t have to either, not now, not in this generation.

Have a wonderful Purim and remember to connect to the Names (gateways) hidden behind the words and the swirling fire of limitless energy behind the letters.
