Ten Commandments Part IV; Back to the Beginning

At the Seed of Keter, the Window Opens

…continued from The 10 Commandents

It’s not surprising that the high point (H’keter) in the Torah would be connected to its first verse, or seed level consciousness, in the same way that if we don’t have the purest of intentions when we help someone, our efforts will go awry or even backfire.

So let’s look to the seed level within the 10 Utterances, at its first verse at Exodus 20:2. Amongst the 9 words of the verse, which are analogous to the 9 paragraphs of the 10 Commandments, we find that its first 3 words form a 13-letter phrase (analogous to the 13 verses of the 10 Commadnments), “Anochi Adonai Elohicah (ENCY YHVH ELHYC),” “I am God, your Lord.”

That should have been enough.

While 3-word phrases in the Torah are often associated with the 3 columns of the Tree-of-life schematic, and this time even more so since the word ELHYC has the gematria sofit value of 546, as in the initials of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-life.

This is not surprising, as we know from chazal that the 10 Utterances represent those 10 sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-life, but what is news is that the regular gematria value of this phrase is 173, as in the 173 keys of Moses, the 42-Letter Name, the understanding of which chazal tells us will bring the geula. And which is analogous to the 172 words plus 1 for the kolel of the 10 Commandments.

It should have been enough, all the power of the 10 Commandments, the power to transform and transcend, was all wrapped up in its first 3 words, “Anochi Adonai Elohicah (ENCY YHVH ELHYC),” “I am God, your Lord.”

And if you recall from the prior articles in this series, the numerical value 173 is found 13 (ahava/love) times in the Torah. Yes, it’s because of G-d’s love for us that He gave us the 42-Letter Name, but also this is another piece of evidence that the 42-Letter Name (Ana B’koach) is the love algorithm, a spiritual formula and cosmic technology that connects us to “unconditional love,” the numerical value of of which is not only the value of the 42-Letter Name’s first line, 506, but also the number of times the 14 triplets in the Name appear in the Torah, 506 times. This is also the complete (ordinal and simple) value of Mashiach Ben David, but much more about that can be found in The Genesis Prayer.

Moreover, 506 is also the numerical value of the 32nd (VShR) of the 72 Names, and as we saw with our blogs on the splitting of the Red (Endless) Sea, the 42-Letter Name and the 72 Names often work in concert when big, so-called, miracles are required.  This also further connects the 42-Letter Name to the 32 Paths of Wisdom and thus the Tree-of-life.

And speaking of Moshiach and the geula, not only are the first 2 words of the 10 Utterances “I am God” found at letter number 107007 in the Torah, but their numerical value is 107 as well, leading us right back to 5778 (2018 CE), the date the tzaddikim gave us for the arrival of Mashiach and the geula (final redemption) since the sum of the integers through 107 = 5778, and since this being the 54th paragraph in the Torah, 54 x 107 = 5778 as well..

Why not a perfect 107007?

Because it probably is perfect on some level that we don’t fathom as yet. We find this non-perfect reference again in the (600,000 – 408) component letters in the Torah, whereby 408 x 6 = 2448, the year of the 10 Utterances and when Keter was achieved for a few, and not for the 600,000 Israelites who were present and could have achieved it.

Meanwhile, while 408 x 6 = 2448, the equation 408/6 = 68, the numerical value of Cha’im, life, as in Etz Cha’im, the Tree-of-life, and the number of alefs (E) in the 620 letters of the 10 Utterances.

Are we reading into this? You decide. The verse that immediately precedes and introduces the 10 Utterances, Exodus 20:1 “God spoke all these words, saying:” has 7 words and 28 letters, just like the Torah’s first verse.

Moreover, the initials of those 7 words add up to 68, again, the numerical value of Cha’im, life, as in Etz Cha’im, the tree-of-life.

And, the total gematria sofit value of that verse less a kolel of (28/7 or 4 for the YHVH) is 2448.

And with a kolel of 28 for the 28 letters it equals 2480, which is the sum of the Names of the 5 Books.

Also the standard gematria for the full verse is 1332 or 2 x 666.

Anyway you look at it, this introductory verse is connecting the 10 Utterances (Commandments) spoken by G-d at Sinai to Creation itself. That simple 3 word phrase Anochi Adonai Elohicah (ENCY YHVH ELHYC),” “I am God, your Lord,” was directly plugged in to G-d Himself. Soon, we’ll be able to plug in once again…

Part V to follow shortly…

The first 3 articles in the series, titled The 10 Commandments can be found here.

The Real 5 Books of the Torah: Dimensions Beyond.

There are 5 Books of the Torah as we see them laid out in the scroll before us, 2 dimensionally, and even if we study its secrets and read the Rabbis’ different interpretations, there are still only 5 Books divided into a stream of words, but that’s because we’re only looking at them from our limited point-of-view, stuck in Malchut.  There is another way of viewing them that will expand our consciousness and raise us into the Tree-of-life.

This is Wisdom for those that understand. The Arizal in his commentary on portion Terumah, said that the Torah was at the level of Yesod of Abba, which is Chochma, which is also the Yud in the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).  We’ve read elsewhere and also from the Ari himself that the Torah is at the level of Zeir Anpin (the bundle of 6 sefirot/dimensions from Heaven to Earth), and also that it’s at the level of Binah, so what gives?

What gives is our limited perspective. They are all right.

In the Arizal’s pregnant statement that the Torah was at the level of Yesod of Abba, we can see that there are about 80,000 words in the Torah and then knowing that 80 is the numerical value of Yesod(YSVD) and that the 5 digits in 80,000 reflect 10x10x10x10 or 104 we have clues to understanding the Ari’s statement.

First we must understand that there are 5 main levels of the sefirot corresponding to the 5 worlds and the 5 parts of the YHVH.

5 Main Dimensions

5: Keter (tip of the Yud)

4: Chochma or Abba (Father) Yud

3: Binah or Imma (Mother) Hey

2: Zeir Anpin (Vav)

1: Malchut (final Hey)

Then we can see that 5-digit numbers are at the level of 104, as shown above, and thus they are at the 4th level, which as the Arizal said, is Abba (Chochma).

We can thus understand from the Ari’s statement that the words of the Torah are at level of Yesod of Abba (Chochma). Yesod is the point (funnel) where the light flows into the next lowest sefira, in this case Binah or Imma.

And the pseudo-sexual reference to flowing into Imma from Abba is not coincidental as this analogy is as best we can understand it  and Yesod is indeed associated with the sexual organs for this very reason. In fact, one of the reasons that there are 79,976 words in the Torah and not 80,000 exactly is that 24 of them, or .03% were removed in a spiritual circumcision of sorts, since a proper circumcision (brit milah) is done is 3 parts: a) cutting away the foreskin, b) Revealing the glans, and c) Extracting the blood from the wound.

Letters

Now, there are 600,000 letters in the Torah. Actually there are (600,000 -408) component letters of the 304,805 full letters in the Torah, as we’ve explained in previous articles, but the sages use the 600,000 figure, corresponding to the 600,000 Israelites at Sinai.

The numerical value of the letter Vav is 6, and 60% of the verses in the Torah begin with the letter Vav. And if those 408 missing letters were Vav’s, their value would be 2448, the year the Torah was revealed at Sinai, which would be .408% of 600,000.

Nevertheless, 6 is representative of Zeir Anpin.  And 6 digits is at a higher level that the 5 digits of Abba (Chochma), and thus would be at the highest level of Keter. Thus the 600,000 letters of the Torah are similarly at Zeir Anpin of Keter.

5: Letters: Zeir Anpin of Keter

4: Words: Yesod of Chochma

How are we to understand this? When we look at the Torah we see letters grouped into words, but this is like seeing the various components of light already assembled together: the blue wavelength, red, infra-red, ultra-violet etc. Or seeing matter already formed with electrons, protons, neutrons. It’s all been put together to make it easy for us for us to comprehend the universe, but in the end all we see is the limited malchut world of illusion, a reflection of the truth instead of the Tree-of-life reality beyond limitations.

Any scientist will tell you that the atoms are 99.9% empty space, so how come we can’t see or pass right through them? A better question might be, who said we can’t?

In actuality, the letters and words exists on separate planes of existence, which is why gematria can analyze them separately and add to the whole, rather than detract from it, and it’s also why Rav Abraham Abulafia of blessed memory said Gematria is the highest form of Torah understanding.

Verses

As for the 5845 verses of Torah, they are 155 less than 6000 and 67 more than 5778, the year prophesied by Rav Ashlag, etc for the final redemption (geula) and the 3rd opening of the Tree-of-life reality in our world. While the 4 digits indicate the world of Binah (Imma) one dimension beneath Chochma (Abba), 6 again signifies the 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin, and 67 is he numerical value of Binah (Imma), reiterating that connection.  And 155/6000 is .26%, with 26 being the numerical value of the YHVH, which on a whole is Zeir Anpin.

Therefore the verses of the Torah are in the dimension of Zeir Anpin of Imma (Binah).

5: Letters: Zeir Anpin of Keter

4: Words: Yesod of Chochma

3: Verses: Zeir Anpin of Binah

Taken together all 3 elements in their separate superimposed dimensions (Letters, Words, and Verses) add up to exactly 58, 5 raised to the 8th power. Now that’s perfection not attainable from our limited perspective.

Nevertheless, There are two more major Torah elements, the 670 paragraphs and the 187 Chapters.

The 3 digits of the 670 paragraphs represent Da’at, the triple balancing point, or reservoir of knowledge between Chochma and Binah, and the place from where Zeir Anpin draws its shefa (life-force). And once again 67 is the numerical value of Binah; therefore the 670 paragraphs are in the dimension of Binah of Da’at, which is the level where Moses drew his energy and wisdom.

The 5th element, 187 chapters, breaks down to 120 + 67 with 67 once again being the numerical value of Binah, and 12o being the length of our generations, those from Moses on, for as the Torah says in Genesis 6:3 “God said, ‘My spirit will not continue to judge man forever, since he is nothing but flesh. His days shall be 120‘.”

In the 5th chapter, just prior to that, the 8th man (generation) in the lineage of Adam, Methuselah lived 187 before begetting Lemekh (LMC), whose name is a permutation for King(MLC), and whose life and lifespan hint to 5778. (See our post on Abraham and Jupiter.)

There are 26 generations delineated in the Torah, and they averaged 91 years each.  Then from Moses (the 26th generation) on, we and according to chazal, he, lived 120 years each generation. This gives us an average of exactly 107 years over 54 generations to 5778, since 5778 = 54 x 107.

Now the 67 chapters represent 35.8% of 187, and 358 is the numerical value of Moshiach, the Messiah, who is to be manifest in 5778 (2018 CE).

All that said, the 2 digits of  the 67 chapters are on the level of Zeir Anpin and 67 is Binah. Meanwhile the Arizal tells us that 120 represents the 120 permutations of the 5 letters in Elohim (ELHYM), the Name of G-d at the level of Malchut. Therefore, the 187 chapters stretch from Binah to Malchut, which is Zeir Anpin .

Thus the 5 dimensions of the Torah:

5:Letters: Zeir Anpin of Keter

4:Words: Yesod of Chochma

3:Verses: Zeir Anpin of Binah

2:Paragraphs: Binah of Da’at

1:Chapters: Zeir Anpin

And when we read he Torah, the table it sits on is Malchut, where we then see all 5 dimensions all together as One: Keter, Chochma, Binah, Da’at and Zeir Anpin brought down to our level.

Did you notice that the smaller the individual Torah element (the individual letters being the smallest and the chapters the greatest) the higher the sefirot (dimension) it connects to. It’s just like the tip of Yud in the YHVH. The adage less is more is very ancient.

5778(2018 CE) is almost here, isn’t it time we rise up to the Torah’s level and see its infinite multi-dimensional beauty.

When we are in sync with the luminous 5 dimensions of the Torah we are in another state of mind and being.  We go from viewing the world as 3-dimensional objects and 2-dimensional words on vellum to viewing it as a 4-dimensional hypercubes (Tesseracts). These have 32 edges, just like the 32 Paths of Wisdom that form the Tree-of-life, all of them connecting various wondrous gateways of limitlessness.

Moreover, those 80,000 words in Yesod of Chochma are divided into exactly 1024 word values, which is precisely 32 x 32, thus expanding the Torah’s dimensionality even further into a full 5-dimensional hypercube or Penteract. It has 32 vertices and 80 edges and 80 faces. The Zohar and sages of blessed memory say the Torah has 70 faces, and with the 10 sefirot there are 80, completing its 5th dimensionality.

The image is a little hard to fathom, but it’s only a projection, nothing like being able to access those dimensions.  everything we see in our world is nothing more than illusory projections of higher dimensions on the walls we’ve built up around us, and on the ceiling we’ve built for ourselves.

If you were to shine a flashlight above a cube onto the wall, you’d see a square. That’s what we’ve done to ourselves, accepted the square as the end-all.

And with 248 columns and 42 rows per column we add two more dimensions to the Torah dimensionality, two more aspects of Zeir Anpin, which when added to the words, letters, and verses in the Torah give us a total of 401273 Torah elements, which work out to exactly 248,000 X Phi, the primordial mathematical constant of value 1.61803399… that controls the natural spiraling growth in the universe, from the petals on a flower to the arms of the Milky Way.

And while 248 is the numerical value of the Hebrew word for mercy, Abraham, and while 2480 is the numerical value of the Names of all 5 Books of the Torah, when you start from One and spiral outward 18 times, or Phi18, we get exactly 5778.000. And by the way the square root of 18 is 4.2426 or 424, Moshiach Ben David with 26, YHVH. Just step outside the square.

Isn’t it time we explored the Torah’s higher dimensionality. Isn’t it time we left the world of limitation, Malchut behind, and prepared for the Tree-of-life reality.

The Ten Commandments – Part III – From the Seed of Creation

First there were the 10 plagues which cleansed out the negativity (klippot) of the 10 sefirot of the negative (or inverse) Tree-of-life.  Then there were the 10 doubts that cleaned out the the negativity (klippot) from the 10 sefirot (levels/dimensions) that had crossed over into Malchut, our world, the lowest of the 10 dimensions of the positive Tree-of- life.  Then we were ready, or so we thought, for the 10 Commandments.

We’re covering the 10 Commandments over many parts not only because of their depth and their importance as the high point (keter) of the Torah, but because they play a role in our lives and for our generation bigger than any of us could imagine, and we’ll reveal exactly what that is–perhaps our biggest revelation to date–by the end of the series.  For now, we need to understand them and the mechanics behind them better.

So while the total number of letters, words, and verses in the entire Torah total 390,625, which is 6252, or an astonishingly exact 58, the number of letters, words, and verses in the actual 10 Utterances (Commandments) is 620+172+13 = 805, the numerical value of “The rainbow,” which was G-d first Covenant (brit) with Earth.

And while 13, as in the 13 verses of the 10 Commandments, is the numerical value of ahava (love), if we add the 9 paragraphs to 805 we get 805 +9 = 814, the numerical value of the verse that Hillel stated summarizes the entire Torah in Levitiucs 19:18, paraphrased as “love they neighbor as thyself.”

That there are 9 paragraphs is probably not coincidental either as the numerical value 625, that of H’keter (The Crown) is found 9 times in the Torah, and keter (Crown) of value 620, as in the 620 letters of the 10 Commandments, is found 10 times that many times, or 90 times.

As we’re dealing with the moment the Israelites touched Keter, it should be noted here that the number 10 (or any multiple of it) is in a proportion with the year 5778 (2018 CE) that spells out the 173 Keys (the 42-Letter Name) which were given to Moses, and that are necessary to achieve the final redemption, according to chazal.

For example,   10,000, or 104, representing Keter, when divided by 5778 yields 10,000/5778 = 1.7307026, or a perfectly graphic rendition of the shem mem-bet (173 keys); the The Divine Calendar70 nations, etc; 702 (Shabbat); and the YHVH (26). Readers of this blog and of The Divine Calendar know full well the significance of the number 70 and the role that the time span of 70 years repeatedly played in the Israelite history, so we should point out that the 10 Commandments (Utterances) occur in the 70th Chapter in the Torah.

And if what we’ve recently learned about the role the 10 Commandments are to play in out future, G-d is very serious about keeping the Sabbath (Shabbat), so none of the numbers in the above equation are superfluous.

So, it’s pretty obvious to us, as it’s always been to the tzaddikim, that in the relationship between reaching Keter, which means receiving the Mashiach and the Tree-of-life consciousness, the understanding the 42-Letter Name (the ability to access the 173 keys) and the year 5778 is a most important one. It was important enough to etch onto the cosmos and to build the Torah around, and important enough for G-d to reveal to us today only 7 years shy of 5778.

The 10 Utterances and the Seed of Creation, the First Window

We always look to the seed level of anything to find its outcome, for as with a seed and the eventual tree that grows from it, its entire genetic blueprint is already there, and so it is spiritually as well with our actions. In this case, we’ll look to the first verse in the section, Exodus 20:2, and to the first verse in the Torah to which it connects.

We know from chazal and have explained numerous times and in depth in The Genesis Prayer how the 42-Letter name is integrally connected with the Torah’s first verse as both a remote control for the Torah and as the seed of Creation itself, so we’ll skip that here, and instead point out the Torah’s first verse’s interesting connections to keter and to these 620 letters.

OK, so we know that the 7 words in the Torah’s first verse are connected to chochma/wisdom, of numerical value 73, because their total value is equal to all the positive integers through 73, and we know that the letter Yud (Y) of numerical value 10, represents the sefira of Chochma in the YHVH, and that there are 62 Yuds in the 620 letters of the 10 utterances, but what we didn’t know was that the word values of each of the Torah first 2 words (9 letters) are repeated a total of 62 times in the Torah.

So let’s think this through. The Torah’s first 2 words’ numerical value are found 2 x 31 (the numerical value of El, G-d, and thus is Lo, “don’t”) which the value if the Yuds amongst the 620 letters of the 10 Commandments is 20 x 31, El. From 2 to 20, a multiple of 10, as we’re climbing up the 10 Sefirot of the Tree-of-life to Keter.

For a tree to grow, a seed must be planted.

Back to the Torah’s first verse. While the actual 4th and 6th words (totaling 4+6=10) in the Torah (Et and V’Et) are found a total of 3450 times in the Torah, or 345 x 10, with 345 being the numerical value of both Moses (Moshe) and Hashem (G-d), the total number of times that their word values reoccur is exactly 622.

There are also 62 times that the 2nd word and or it’s value, 203, reoccur.

So the first 2 words together and independently connect to 62 and the 4th and 6th together do as well. So if we add up those 622 and 62 and connections, we get 62 x 65 of them, all within the first 7 words of the Torah, and since 65 is the numerical value of Adonai, representing Malchut, the connections stretch from Keter all the way down to Malchut.

This compares with the 7363 total word occurrences and word value recurrences for those 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 6 words in the Torah, all of them connected to 62.  And for some reason 7363 – (62 x65) = 3333. It seems almost too perfect.  Or they may be yet another clue and piece in the puzzle, and have something to do with the 3330 years between the twp tree-of-Life opportunities in 2448 at Sinai and in 5778.

So maybe the fact that 1+2+4+6 = 13, as in the 13 verses of the 10 Utterances, isn’t a coincidence either.

And as for words #3, 5, and 7 of the Torah’s first verse, whose collective numerical value is 777, their total word and word value recurrences is 3125 or 625 (H’Keter) x 5.

Is it possible that this is yet another rendition and clue to 5-777, or 5777 (2017 CE)?

In order for Moses to have led the Israelites to Keter at Mt Sinai in the seed had to have been planted 2448 years earlier. And in order for us to experience it would take another 3330 years to reach full height (maturity). But before we can climb it, we have understand it and the best way to do that is to understand the seed that spawned it.

So what connects the Torah’s first 7 words and its 70th Chapter, where we find the 10 Commandments? For one, they are connected by 107,007 letters, and just as the sum of the integers through 73 equals the T0rah’s first verse, the sum of the integers through 107 equals 5778.

Nothing in the Torah is situated randomly. Everything has a purpose and is part of a plan. Wouldn’t you like to know what that was?

Just note for now, that what’s happening all over the Mideast right now is directly related to what’s happening to the 70 supernal ministers over the 70 nations and what’s happening to them is directly related to our shift through the 70th chapter of the Torah.

We’re getting closer. Part IV will follow shortly.

Abraham and the Planet Jupiter; Foretelling the Final Redemption.

Abraham’s journey began with the planet Jupiter; so did ours.  Who knew it would take so long? Regarding our last post on Jupiter and the 40 Days and 40 Nights, David wrote into me with a great insight:

How can we connect this to the fact that Avraham’s astrological array was Jupiter and Hashem moved it from east to west so that it doesnt influence Avraham’s ability to have children? seemingly this means that all his descendants are also under Jupiter’s astrological sign and affected by it.

source Shabbos 156B ““Who awakened Jupiter from the east?”

To understand this you must begin with Shabbos 156A, nevertheless, the Gemara connects that moment when G-d had Abraham gaze up into the stars to Abraham’s age (70) at the Covenant of Halves which occurred in 2018 HC, and this is especially noteworthy given that 2018 CE is 5778 HC, which as per the referenced article just published is the date revealed by both Jupiter’s orbit, the Sun’s temperature and the phrase “40 days and 40 nights,” 5-778.

And more so given that the exact Torah phrase used for “70 years (VShBAYM ShN-H)” has the same exact gematria as the “40 days and 40 nights” or “778 plus the final Hey(5) of Malchut” just like Jupiter’s orbit.

The real significance though is that Israel will be 70 years a nation in 5778 (2018 CE), just as Abraham was 70 years old in 2018 HC. And according to Rav Ashlag (HaSulam) the Covenant will then be fulfilled, coinciding with the Zohar that also enlightens us to that 70 year period prior to the final redemption.

One reference to this is found in Zohar Mishpatim (Ra’aya Meheimna-the deepest secrets section)17, 473-475, regarding “the 70 words in the psalm: ‘May Hashem hear you in the day of trouble (Tehilim 20:2), ” Rav Ashlag explains that this alludes to the 70 sounds made by the expectant mother about to give birth, “being also the 70 sounds given out by the Schechinah for the distress of the children of Yisrael prior to redemption-considered ‘a day of trouble’.” The Zohar intimating a conversation between Moses and Elijah, continues, “Why does She cry out? It is known that among Yisrael there are masters of Torah and kings from the aspect of the star of dawn, namely the Shechinah. There are two grads: morning and dawn, about which it is said: ‘at Your right hand are pleasure evermore (Netzach)” [Tehilim 16:11]. The morning of Abraham, Chesed, appears on the Day of Redemption. But the dawn precedes the Day of Redemption, being Netzach, as the Shechinah from this aspect is called ‘the star  of dawn’.”

In the next paragraph, the Zohar continues explaining, “Hence the chief musician [lamenatzeach] is spelled Netzach [forever] and Lamed-Mem [70], which are the 70 sounds that the doe  [star] of dawn cries out for her children when the darkness of exile overcomes them, the darkness of dawn taking place in the last 70 years. At that time will be fulfilled in Yisrael: ‘Like a woman with child, that draws near the time of delivery, is in pain, and cries out in her pangs; so have we been in your sight, Hashem’ [Yeshayah 26:17]…”

“..The morning alludes to the right hand of Abraham, Messiah, Son of David, who stems from Judah [Yehudah] about whom it is written, ‘Judah is a lion’s whelp’ [Bereshit 49:9]. For this reason, ‘as Hashem lives: lie down until the morning’. [Ruth 3:13].

The Zohar, as always is very deep and cryptic though we can’t miss the obvious allusions that the last 70 years will be painful and include all the birth pangs of Moshiach. So it’s interesting that of the 42 times (Yes, 42 as in the 42-Letter Name, the understanding of which chazal will bring about the final redemption) the 778 plus hey (5) phrase is used in the Torah, the first time is in conjunction with 70 years in Genesis 5:31 with Lemekh(LMC)–kabbalistic code for king(melech, MLC)–who lived for 777 years. And notice that Lemekh(LMC) begins with the Lamed-Mem that the Zohar was referring to above.

And it’s even more significant that the next time it was used was in paragraph 42, Genesis 12:4, when Abraham was 70 years and 5, which is what the Gemara was referring to, in 2018 HC.

As my son pointed out to me at breakfast this morning, Jupiter’s days are 10 hrs long, a possible connection to the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-life.  What the full connection to Jupiter is yet to be seen, but as the 70 supernal ministers are removed above, so are their respective counterparts in the nations below, and so far since the start of this year 1/1/11, Lebanon, Tunisia, Egypt have fallen, and Jordan, Yemen and Afghanistan are in the process. The prophecies of the Zohar and tzaddikim are being fulfilled.

When the Torah connects the dots, it does it for a reason, and not an insignificant one.  Over the next few weeks we’ll be unraveling more of these trails.
