Why do we count? Why does the Torah always list numbers, and why are numbers so hard for us to grasp?
The following is an excerpt from The Divine Calendar about the curious mathematics in the 26 generations from Adam to Moses. It is just one more aspect in and of the magnificence of the Torah. To most people reading and studying Torah (the Bible) the years in the generations of Adam are extremely insignificant and that may be the point: Even the most insignificant detail of the Torah shines with the magnificence and depth of the brightest star. I was compelled to make this particular post because I followed an advertising link to a site whose premise was that we can’t count the generations. I confess I didn’t read through their premises in depth, but if the Torah didn’t want us to count up its numbers, why is the Torah always taking censuses and counting everything constantly. And why are there always deep and numerous revelations when we do.
Why would there be so much revealed perfection in the Torah’s numbers if we weren’t supposed to find it?
The answer is that our generation is meant to find this perfection. What else other than the awe of Gd can save us?
Rav Abraham Azulai in Chesed L’Avraham stated about the end of days, which he advised us would begin in 5760, “After this time, the hidden secrets of the Torah shall be revealed to all Israel, even to those that never tried to study Torah’s secrets beforehand. Though, that they did study Torah in exile, they shall now achieve to know the way of Sod.”
Then why are numbers so hard for so many people?
It is because they are Sod, secret knowledge. People’s eyes glaze over when they see numbers and they get sleepy, which is no different then often happens to people listening to a tzaddik speak. When the energy is too powerful, we can’t connect, so our minds disconnect. But know this, everything in the Torah is a gift, and everything was meant for us to take advantage of it.
OK, secrets, sure, but those can be bottomlined for us, why do we need to look at the numbers?
Because numbers contain enormous power unto themselves, which is why there are so many of them in the Torah. Think of them as the IP addresses of various cosmic computer stations. Once you once the address your mind/soul can dial in, the same way your web browser does for you while you’re sitting at your desk, unlocking an endless stream of information. Now imagine, if all those web addresses were sorted into a specific order for you to link into just the right and accurate information and to tap into just teh right frequency of energy you need to maximize your potential this and every week of the cosmic year. This is why the Torah is divided into very specific portions (parshot) according to the weeks and holidays of the cosmic calendar year. Now these cosmic web sites are wonderful to visit, but if you could only read them (if they were in your language) how much more would you get out of them. And that’s what were are attempting to do in this blog, help you to read the cosmic web sites, translate them as best we can, because the closer we get to 5778 and the “end of days” the more we’ll need accurate information and the appropriate spiritual energy.
So what energy can we tap into this today?
At the end of this except from The Divine Calendar, one of the more technical sections of it, I’ve added new important revelations about the chronology of these 26 generations and their connection to the prophesied arrival of Moshiach in 5778.
“There are 26 direct generations in the lineage from Adam to Moses, and we know exactly how long each of them lived according to the Torah, which the sages say existed before Creation and the scientists and scholars tell us existed for the past 3330 years or so. Nevertheless, if we list all 26 generations and take the logarithm of each, and then sum up these 26 irrational numbers, we get exactly 66.661199… or 66.66.12, a numerical pictograph of 666 and 612, which is the numerical value of “Covenant, or Brit.”

What are the odds of that? Really. If the Torah were divinely designed, then there’s no issue. Of course the same force that created all our mathematics could have designed this specific set of 26 interlocking numbers that ended in the year 2488 HC to be anything that He wanted it to, but if we want to design a scenario where Man could have created this chart 3330 years ago, then we have a problem. You see, John Napier only began developing the concept of logarithms around 400 years ago.
Ironically, or maybe not coincidentally at all, John Napier wrote a book about the mathematics of the Book of Revelations, but what he wasn’t privy to was that there were 600,000 Israelites at Mount Sinai when the Torah was given and when the 27, or 3^{3}, Hebrew letters of the Hebrew alphabet are broken down into their component parts they expand to 50 total letters, which makes the number of actual letters in the Torah climb from 304805 to exactly (600,000 – 408.)
Now, there are many reasons why the Torah was designed to be 408 letters shy of the perfect 600,000, one of them being that 408 x 6 = 2448 and 2448 HC was the year the Torah was given to us at Mt Sinai, but what ties this all together so utterly perfectly is that the log of 600,000 is 5.778.
LOG(600,000) = 5.778.
The other oddity to notice about the above generational chart is that the sum of the 26 square roots, again 26 irrational numbers, also works out to 535.814805…, with 358 being the numerical value for Mashiach, the Messiah, and 814 being the numerical value of the phrase from Leviticus 19:18, “You must love your neighbor as (you love) yourself,” and 805 being the numerical value of “The Rainbow” which was Gd’s Covenant with the Earth following the Flood.
Of further note is that not only does the cumulative sum of the 26 square roots connect to Mashiach, but the cumulative sums of the first 17 (the value of tov, good) do so as well. They sum to 424.666, a not so subtle connection to Mashiach Ben David (424) and 666.
Also, you may have observed that the numerical sequence or string 5358 is found at the 9^{th} position in the mathematical constant Pi: 3.14159265358, right after the number 26 representing both the Tetragrammaton and the 26 generations, whose square roots summed to 5358, and that the number 26 immediately follows the number 9.
Now someone might say that there existed in the days of Moses a genius capable of doing square roots and logarithms and that he somehow contrived to create a 26generation chart where the dates end in 8’s and the logs sum to 66.6612 and square roots sum to 535.814805 and that he knew that out of the 304805 letters in the Torah, there would be exactly 4805 letter Pe’s, each of value 80, and moreover, that he convinced Moses to let him write this section of Genesis, but did he also create Pi, which is really nothing more than a mathematical result of curving a line into a circle and which thus existed at the dawn of creation? Do we really think that this is logical reasoning? That this is plausible?”
So what is really going on here?
Obviously, in buildingin such precision perfection, which we can easily unravel given today’s technology, Gd wanted to give everyone in this generation the opportunity to realize in time the blessings of Torah and that there is so much more out there than we can fathom with out limited minds.
But just as importantly, the Torah is letting us know that we all come from the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) and that if your soul is one of the 600,000 that was at Mt Sinai, then it came through and was at one point united within Adam, and that it needs to be reunited again with H’Mashiach (the Messiah) in 5778.
That’s why it’s called a divine calendar; because it was preordained, and the Torah’s wants us to know that, to tune into that so it can help us to unify, to reunite. If the Torah knew the path our 600,000 souls would take then it also knew how difficult the path would be and how much help we’d need in the end days. This is why we were given this 18year period from 5760 to 5778 (2000 CE to 2018) to live (18 is the value of chai, life) and to learn this technology, of which permission has only recently been granted for it to be made available to everyone.
If you’re reading this, chances are you are one of the 600,000 and need to help get it to the other 599,999. If you were a cell in your body, you wouldn’t think twice about helping and sharing valuable info with the rest of your body–this is what keeps you alive, but as humans, it’s not our nature (or so we deceive ourselves into thinking). Think about that: How can what our cells do naturally not be within our nature. This is the illusion of our present world. This is what Torah is trying to help us break though. This is what is on the other side of the end of days. It is the treeoflife reality.
What about those new revelations?
We know that the number 8 plays a significant role in the divine calendar, and we also know from chazal that all the Patriarchs were supposed to live as long as their fathers, so it’s probably not a coincidence that 8 of the 26 in the generations from Adam to Moses, both of whom are aspects of Mashiach, lived shorter lives than their fathers did. They are:
Kenen, the 4th generation
Yered, the 6th generation
Methusalah, the 8th generation
Noach, the 10th generation
Eber, the 14th generation
Terach, the 19th generation
Isaac, the 21st generation
Amran, the 25th generation
We’ve seen repeatedly in our blog posts how the number 107 is encoded into many of the Torah verses and/or Bible codes and we know that since it is a spiritual tenet that nothing is ever lost, we understand the significance that all the integers from 1 to 107 add up to 5778. Thus, isn’t it significant that the sum of the generations of those 8 forefathers of ours is 107, thueds linking them, us to 5778. And also that the first 5 are all even numbers that add up to 42, as in the 42Letter name of Gd, that we learned from the Arizal, is our real soul root (see the blog post regarding this), and also that the last 3 are all odd numbers which add up to 65, the numerical value of Adonai. Now, if you piece it together in reverse order, you can trace it back to 3,5,8 or 358, Mashiach.
With these simple ages, the Torah is helping us to reconnect with our soul roots and to connect to the Mashiach. Note, all these numbers come from the extraordinarily secret Book of Adam, as the Torah alludes to in Bereshit 5:1, to which only a very few tzaddikim have been privileged to see, but now we can all connect with this knowledge openly.
And since the Torah wants to illustrate the parts are all part of the whole we can see from these numbers that the sum of the integers from 1 to 26 (YHVH) is 351 and that the sum of square roots of the 18 (268) numbers not highlighted for us is 351.702, with the number 702 being the value of Shabbat, the 7th day. And if you add 7 to 351, you get 358, Mashiach again.
One more parting gift: 5778/107 = 54, which is the numerical value of the letters dalet and nun, the two letters of the month of Scorpio, according the Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah, that are also associated with the arrival of Mashiach, but this will be explained in detail in another post.
