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.

210 = 4.2 Jubilee Years

This is very important to the understanding of why the Israelites were in Egypt, why we’re still in exile, and when we’re coming out of exile.

Let us note further that exactly 44 jubilee years passed from Adam to Joseph’s birth (2200 years) and the first and essence of the 10 Plagues was in Hebrew dam (DM), meaning blood, of numerical value 44, like the blood Joseph’s brothers spread on his coat that they showed Jacob.

Nevertheless, according to the Zohar, the Israelites were in Egypt for one main purpose, to recuperate the holy sparks scattered there at the shattering of the 10 disconnected vessels (sefirot/dimensions) that existed prior to the Creation of the Tree-of-life.  And so as the expanded from 70 to 600,000 they physically absorbed those sparks 600,000 and the 70 angles. Meanwhile, the 600,000 protecting angels went from 8571.428 angels per Israelite to 1, and the Sea of Reeds was in front of them and Pharaoh’s 600 chariots behind them.

In order to overcome their situation, the Israelites were forced to band together, unify, conjoin their 600,000 angels and concentrate their energy through the 70 Names.  Theses 70 Names are also called today the 72 Names, as they are comprised of the 216 letters derived from the 3 consecutive 72-letter verses in BeShalach, but of the 72 Triplets there are only 70 unique Names as emphasized by the Zohar and as we can see for ourselves.

There is to this day still only 600,000 Israelite soul roots that originated from the 70 family members, the 12 sons of Jacob, the 3 Patriarchs and Adam, and we may have to reunite once again to end this exile as our ancestors did in the first. After all, it took Ester, Morchachai and Ezra to unite our ancestors trapped in Babylon to end their 70 years of exile as well.  It stands to reason, unity amongst our souls is key.

Let’s set that aside for the moment and take a closer look at those 70 Israelites. Interestingly enough, there are an awful lot of 7’s in this story. Jacob “began his journey” by leaving Beer Sheba, the 7th Well.  He then worked 7 years for Leah, 7 years for Rachel, and 7 years for himself. Then there was Pharaoh’s dream of 7 cows emerging from the reeds, 7 more emaciated cows, 7 ears of corn, 7 more shriveled ears of corn, which were translated by Joseph to 7 good years and 7 fallow years. Jacob worked 7 years for Leah, 7 years for Rachel, and 7 years for himself.

Then on the way to Goshen, Jacob, now called Israel, “began his journey” and stopped back at Beer Sheba, the 7th Well, where God spoke to him in a night vision, very similar to the prior time when he had just left Beer Sheba and had his famous vision of the angels racing up and down the ladder. When G-d reiterates his Covenant with Jacob that He had made with Abraham and Isaac, the Torah tells us Jacob set out from Beer Sheba, “the 7th well”.

Next the Torah describes the make-up of the 70 family members and we find out that 7 are directly from Rachel, 14 from Rachel’s handmaiden, making 21 indirectly from Rachel in total, or 3 times 7. And the other 49 family members were from Leah and her handmaiden (33 and 16 respectively), or 7 times 7. We have 1 x 7 + 2 x 7 + 7 x 7 = 70.

Yup! That’s a lot of 7’s. Could it be possible that the life and journey of Jacob was about establishing Zeir Anpin, the trunk of the tree-of-Life, comprised of the 7 lower sefirot (dimensions) and their 10 sub-dimensions each, or 70? Even the 16 offspring from Leah’s handmaiden corresponded to the 16 times Beer-Sheba (the 7th Well) is mentioned in the Torah and their 49 members are almost split in a 70/30 ratio.

Nevertheless, when we apply the ration 8571.428 angels per family member, it works out to exactly 180,000 angels for Rachel’s camp and 420,000 for Leah’s camp, very interesting round numbers, especially considering that the square root of 180,000 angels is 424.26, with 424 being the numerical value if Moshiach Ben David and 26 of the Tetragrammaton (26).

Nevertheless, back to the 8571.428 angels/person. If those angels were assigned to guard the 12 directions, as explained by the Zohar (think of the edges of a cube), and each of those groups (714.28 angels) were to be split up to guard the right, left, and central columns of their particular direction, then there would be 238.095… per group. Yet another interesting number, considering that 238 is the numerical value of Rachel, and also that 1/42 = .0238095.

And yes, 238.095… is also the atomic weight of Uranium238.

Moreover, the Atomic number of Uranium238 is 92 because it has 92 Protons in its’ nucleus and also 92 electrons circling it. Since Joseph was born in 2200 HC, Jacob was 92 at his birth. And of course, the numerical value of Rachel, his beloved, and Joseph’s mother is 238.

Smelling something fishy? What about the fact that 2200 HC is the year 1560 BCE in the Gregorian calendar and the numerical value of Joseph is 156. Is this all a big Divine metaphor?

So what’s the power here? Nuclear? Nuclear Fusion? Is that the power behind the conjoining of our souls.

Mathematically, what went on here? Following the instructions of the Arizal, we simply took 600,000 and divided it by 70 and then again by 12 and again by 3, mimicking the soul route of the Israelites from Adam to the 3 Patriarchs to the 12 sons (tribes) to the 70 family members, or 600,000/2520. And what is 2520, but the year of the Exodus and revelation at Sinai, 2448, plus 72, as in the 72 Triplets (Names that were utilized to effect the final fusion.

(2448 +72) = 2520


600,000/(2448 + 72) = 238.095 = Uranium238.

So why was Joseph’s family split into Rachel’s camp of 21 and Leah’s camp of 49? It’s because 21/49 = 3/7 = .428 and that forms the relationship of the upper 3 sefirot (dimensions) with the lower 7 sefirot. In other words, it mimics the Tree-of-Life and it was planned that the Israelites would spread along the branches of that tree.  kabbalistically, Leah is always representative of he upper levels, and Rachel of the lower ones, Malchut, but this is not what the Torah is showing us here.  Except that the Zohar confirms that Leah’s children are the real malchut, while Joseph was of Yesod of the upper worlds.

There are many more secrets here.  To be continued…

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 Torah correspond to the two Hebrew letters governing the first month of the year as laid out by Abraham in the Sefer Yetzirah, Tishrei (Libra): Lamed, of numerical value 30 and Pe, represented by the 4805 Pes in the Torah. When the primordial aleph of the 3 mother (E,M,SH) is added to Lamed and Pe, it spells Aleph (ELP) which helps explain why Tishrei is the first month.  Please further note that it takes 42 rotations of the 7 letters governing the planets to return to the starting point again, but more about that in another posting.

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, the 3 alefs collectively have a value of 333, and if we use the expanded value of 100 for the letter yud and add teh two letter heys and the two vavs we get (333 + 100 + 5 + 6 + 6 + 5 = 455). Note that the vav-dalet (value 10) of the letter spelled-out yud get folded in, as Y (10) x VD (10) = 100.

And the three alefs are reflected again in the Name Ehyeh Esher Ehyeh, “I am that I am” which reflects the upper 42 letters of the name of G-d. And with the 3 alefs as One, it has the numerical value of 541, that of Israel.

And to be sure, when we separate out the 3 alefs, the rest of the letters in the name (YVD HE VEV HE) sum to 42.

Now, the repetition of 3‘s is no coincidence here and we find in Moses’ name’s value that 345 = 115 x 3 and that 115 is the value of the word strength, hazak, which we recite 3 times at the close of every Torah Book, which is not only a connection to Moshe, but to the Messiah, H’Mashiach, an embodiment of Moses, as there are 115 jubilee (50 year interval) years up to the generation of 5778 when it’s been prophesied that Mashiach will come.

Thus we see that the Ari is an incarnation of Moses and that they carry in their essence the full name of G-d Ehyeh and use it to draw strength to Israel until the time of H’Mashiach.

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 or 630 total shakings in the 7 days. 630 is 10 x 63, the value of the Tetragramamton in the aspect of Binah.  The 10 always corresponds to the 10 sefirot (dimensions) and in this case to the 10 sub-dimensions (inner sefirot) within Binah. During the entire process of Sukkot, we’re drawing down the energy from Yesod of Ima (Binah) so the Binah connections are very fitting and part and parcel to the technology involved in the shakings. Over the 7 days of Sukkot, we’re making 70 sacrifices to share the energy with the 70 nations of the world. Each of these sacrifices corresponds to a specific one of the sub-sefirot in order as we descend through them during the 7 day period.

Regarding the four species: As we know from the Arizal, the four species correspond to the Tetragrammaton (YHVH): Hadas (yud), Aravah (hei), lulav (vav) and Etrog (hei). So since the numerical values of Hadas and Aravah = 346 (Shmo), the two species above correspond to Yud-Hei Shmo as in 5 of the 6 letters that occur at the top of the 248 columns of the Torah that are not vavs, excluding the initial bet of bereshit. The three sides of the sukkah itself forms a Bet. The missing bet from the B’Yud-hei Schmo sequence would appear to be the bet in lulav (LVLB), since the word lulav both begins and ends in and also ends in  Lamed-bet as in the first and last letters of the Torah.  This is an allusion to the recycling of the Torah that occurs during this period when we read the last verse of the Torah and immediately twist it back to the beginning and erad from Bereshit.

Moreover, the numerical value of Hadas and Aravah and lulov together = 414 (kaddish) or 2 x 207 (Or/light), and as in known from chazal, etrog has the value 610 as in parnesa and ma’aser and their various meditations. The Etrog corresponds to the malchut of yesod, the place where we earn our parnesa (sustenance).

But the total value of the 4 species = 1024, which is 256 (28) x 4 with 256 being the value or the Ark of the Covenant (also Aaron) and 1024 being both 210 as in the 210 years of exile yet again, and also the 1024 unique word values in the Torah.

Furthermore as we meditate on sharing light with the 70 nations through the 70 sacrifices, it’s appropriate that the sum of the 4 final letters (B,G,H,S) in the names of the 4 species add up to 70, while that of the Hadas and Arava alone add up to 65, Adonai.

Interestingly, and not coincidentally, the sum of the ordinal value of the 16 letters in the names of the 4 species is 151, as in the value of the Name, Ehyeh (EHYH) spelled out (milui) and also of the word, mikve. Moreover, The sum of the ordinal value of the letters in lulav is 32 as in Lamed-Bet (heart, and the last and first letters in the Torah) and the 32 paths of Wisdom, which is in essence the Tree-of-life, represented by the lulav, whose standard gematria value is 68, that of chaim (life).

Moreover, when we  add Lulav’s standard value and its ordinal one, we get 68 + 32 = 100, the value of, sach (SCC), the roof (covering) of the Sukkah and the representation value of  keter, the highest sefira.

Now, if we add all the elements of the holiday together, we get 100 (Sach) + 91 (sukkah) + 1024 (4 species) = 1215. There is a reason fro 1215 but we wont go into it now, but when we take away 1 for the kolel, and get 1214, much of the technology gets revealed:

For example the 11 unique letters used in creation of the first verse of the Torah connect with the 11 dots above the letters that occur in the same parsha (portion) as the large letter lamed, and together they help us convert curses into blessing through the 11 incenses (etc). These 11 unique letters have a complete value (ordinal plus standard gematria) of 1214, and 1214 is the exact numerical value of “70 languages” (ShBAYM LShVNVT), corresponding to the 70 nations that we;re making the sacrifices for. Also, 1214 is the exact value for the “permutation of the letters” (ZYRVP HEVTYVT).

Now, while the last of the 11 letters under the 11 dots is ayin, with a value of 70, the complete value (standard and ordinal) of all 11 letters under the dots is 422, which is the exact numerical value of the word “seventy (70)” (ShBAYM). These, of course, connect to the destruction of the Two Holy Temples in –422 BCE and in 70 CE, respectively, as is detailed and chronicled in The Divine calender.  It’s also not a coincidence that the letter ayin, with a value of 70, has an ordinal value of 16, as in the 16 letters of the 4 species discussed above.

It’s so beautiful how perfect the Torah and Hashem’s tools are!
