Science and Spirituality Collide; The New Speed of the Sun: 600,000 MPH

Even before the dawn of civilization, man has looked to the stars for signs. Much more recently, we’ve been equipped with powerful telescopes and computers with which to gaze at them. And our astrophysicists are pretty good. After only a few hundred years of being able to make advanced calculations they’ve been able to do astounding feats, and with a precision and accuracy unheard of, except in ancient times.

Huh? Except in ancient times?

Yes, while we have ancient documents such as the Torah and ancient objects such as Joseph’s Pyramid (separate blog post) structured precisely and accurately to within several decimal places every which way they are examined, our modern scientists are extraordinarily accurate until they’re not. And then, they just recalculate. Imagine, up until recently we knew that the sun was hurtling through space around the Milky Way Galaxy at 500,000 mph. And now, all of a sudden, they tell us it’s 600,000 mph, a small shift in gears of 100,000 mph. Oops!

The size of the miscalculation is irrelevant; what’s important is that they now know what the ancient kabbalists knew. Do you think it’s a coincidence that the sun is traveling at 600,000 mph, and that there are 600,000 letters of black fire) in the Torah, or that there were 600,000 Israelites at Mt Sinai, or that, as explained by the Arizal hundreds of years ago, the soul root of Adam was divided into 600,000 parts, and that at the core of it is Uranium 238?

Huh, Uranium 238?

Yes, following the Arizal instructions, we trace the Jewish soul root back from the 600,000 at Mt Sinai to the 70 of Jacob’s family who entered Egypt to Jacobs 12 sons to the 3 Patriarchs (Jacob, Isaac, and Abraham) then to Adam, and we get:

600,000/70/12/3/1 = 238.095

The Exact Nuclear weight of Uranium 238

It’s also 42 when we invert the equation:

1/(600,000/70/12/3/1) = 42


There are no coincidences. That’s the first spiritual precept we must understand. Scientists will keep changing their numbers until the physical laws of the universe eventually match the spiritual ones. And as time speeds up for all of us, the convergence will grow more apparent.

And more crucial too, because the more accurate the scientific data, the stronger the tree of knowledge of good and evil, and thus the more destructive science can be. Or the more helpful, if the scientists wake up to the spiritual reality of the Tree-of-life.

The key here, is why the scientific accuracy in the first place. Assume for a moment you actually wholeheartedly believe in G-d, an omniscient intelligence, then was his place for us to be able to get to the moon and mars, to be able to make nuclear weapons and alter our DNA? Or was it to inspire an awe and wonder at the grandeur and possibilities of infinity (the infinite), of the limitless and boundless and fully integrated wonders of the universe, no matter where and on what scale we look. It’s only by embracing this awe that we can appreciate what we’ve been given, and the next spiritual precept to understand is that only through appreciating what we have, can we hold on to it.

As we look to the stars in this article, and use only the numbers our scientists have given us, we hope you’ll share our awe of how divinely perfect and planned out the universe really is, and of the one and only way it could have worked out so perfectly.

OK, so what does it really matter how fast the Sun is flying through space?

Because we are too. We are bound to the Earth, which is bound to the Sun, which is soaring at 600,000 mph, and at that speed the boundaries between science and spirituality are melting. As we hurtle toward the year 5778 HC, the year passed down from tzaddik to tzaddik as the year of the final redemption, only 9 years away now, the year that corresponds to 2018 CE and thus within the divine calendar to 2018 HC when G-d made his Covenant with Abraham, the veils cloaking the spiritual world from the physical are burning away at a frightening pace.

Scientifically, what it means by our speed to have been found to have increased from 500,000 to 600,000 mph is that the dark matter at the center of the Milky Way is far more massive than our physicists had imagined. They said oops, but a student of kabbalah would ask why? Why did that extra dark mass suddenly appeared 10 years prior to prophesied date of the geula (the final redemption), and also contemporaneously with the fall of the world economic systems, which lost 42% of its markets values last year, and which also happened immediately after the Large Hedron Collider was fire up back in September.

Now, scientifically, one thing cannot be connected with the other.

Spiritually, everything is connected. The outcome of an event is already present in its beginning. And energy anywhere instantaneously effects everything and everyone. These are the spiritual tenets we need to grasp, as the markets, economies,and global hostilities continue to be drawn to that newly discovered dark mass.

The kabbalists would suggest that the scientists try an experiment to change the phase of a proton on one side of the universe and check what happens to its mate on the other side of the universe. But wait, they did that, and miraculously, and instantaneously, whatever they did to one, happened to the other. That’s because the spiritual tenets exist on a higher level than the physical ones, and the spiritual precedes the physical. It’s all based on dimensionality and the relationship between the 10 dimensions (sefirot) that make up the tree-of-life reality.

By the way, there are few physicists today that would argue with the 10-dimensional structure of the universe. But instead of the integral, highly organized, and divinely planned one that the Kabbalists have been writing about for thousands of years, the 10-dimensional structure of the universe posited recently by our modern scientists is a mathematic ball of thread.

Be that as it may. the 600,000 figure is obviously not a random number, and we know from chazal (the righteous sages of blessed memory) that it relates to the letter vav, of numerical value 6, the 6 days of Creation, and the bundled 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin, which in the tree-of-life schematic represents Heaven (H’Sham’im), the linkage between our physical world and the 3 spiritual upper worlds.

Given that we’re talking about inspiring awe, why does the Torah have (600,000-408) component letters, and not exactly 600,000?

There are several reasons, one being that 408 is the numerical value of the Hebrew letter chet (8), but we go into that discussion in depth in The Divine Calendar so we won’t do so here. And another explanation is that 408 letter vavs (which are single flame strokes) of numerical value 6 gives us 408 x 6 = 2448, the year the Torah was received by the 600,000 Israelites at Sinai.

And another of the many reasons can be found in our Rosh Hashanah prayers when we pray that repentance, prayer and charity can remove an evil decree against us. There are three words that appear above these words in tiny Hebrew letters; they are צום קול and ממון. Each of these words has a connection to tshuvah, and each has a value of 136, together they sum to 408. Which is the universe and Hashem’s way of telling us that in order to complete the Torah, to complete perfection and ourselves, we must do tshuvah (repentence, prayer, charity). This is certainly not a new concept, but just as darkness is descending around us, we’ve been given a powerful flashlight to help us find our way through it: tshuvah.

But why is this heavy dark matter happening now and what does it mean for us?

The answer lies, not far off in the center of our universe, but in the center of our solar system. In the Sun. Thanks to science, we know that the temperature of the surface of the sun is 5778 degrees Kelvin. That’s hot, but that’s also the year that’s been prophesied by the tzaddikim, and illustrated over and over again, as the year of the geula, the final redemption, and the arrival of Moshaich, the Messiah.

Think about it; it’s perfect! What is the source of all out Light? What is the source of the energy that gives us live? The Sun. So what more fitting a billboard could God give us than to post the date of the redemption in our skies, right in front of our faces, every single day, since the birth of Adam 5778 years earlier?

I can tell you with certainty that the ancient kabbalists didn’t know that the temperature at the surface of the Sun was 5778 K. It hasn’t been that long since the Kelvin temperature scale was created, or even centigrade or Fahrenheit for that matter. But they had the date 5778 HC and they showed us we can easily calculate it too based on a scale of 2/3 of the 6 sefirot, or 666.666 year intervals, but the astonishing thing here is that we can look to the same place they did, the radiance of the Light for the timing of the coming of the Messiah (H’Mashiach). Or conversely, if we want to ignore the spiritual messages, the End of Days.

Do you realize that if the Sun were to be even one degree K warmer or cooler, we’d be history, fried or frozen. That’s a pretty good reason to chose 5778 as a focal point.

And if you’re scientifically oriented, don’t get hung up in the fact that the universe is 13.7 Billion years old, because time is an illusion and can be dimensionally collapsed, and also because 137 is the numerical value of Kabbalah, meaning “to receive,” which is all we’ve been doing for 13.7 billion years. But if you are scientifically oriented you must read There’s Nothing Random in the Universe, which illustrates how most of the mathematical constants and especially Pi and Phi integrally hinge on this date, 5778 HC (2018 CE), which is also phi18.

We all know things are on pretty shaky ground right now, spiritually and physically, around the planet, and a great many of us can feel something big coming, and those that can’t are being forced to confront their demons by the unfortunate series of events that just seems to get perpetually worse.

But curiously, 6 years before 5778 HC (2018 CE), on Dec 21st 2012, the Sun and Earth will align in a way not seen in 26,000 years with the Sun eclipsing the dark center of the galaxy. And while, to many this portends the End of Days, it is probably just emphasizing the linkage between heaven and earth as we draw closer in the final 6 years, because how bad can the Light eclipsing the darkness be?

However, we can all feel the encroachment of the darkness every day as we get closer, and there are no signs times will get any easier so we need to understand what’s going on much better. And it’s important to note that the 26,000 years is based on the precession of the equinoxes,in other words the revolution against the backdrop of the cosmos and the sun of the tilting of the Earth’s axis. And moreover, that it’s not really 26,000, but more accurately 25770 years give or take 10 years or so.

We don’t mean to minimize the events that will happen around the year 2012 (5772), but its become increasingly apparent, considering the amount of greed and selfishness in our world and the lack of true spiritual (compassionate/sharing/giving/self-sacrificing) consciousness, that the darkness is necessary for us to able to see the light. The events around the world may be truly devastating on the individual, community, regional and global scale, but what 2012 marks, is not the end, but a pivotal turning point. As will be illustrated later in the article, as the Sun pulls away from the central alignment point of the serpent shaped darkness at the center of the Milky Way, we’ll all have to make a final choice: follow the Light of the Sun, or stay focused on the darkness.

Both physically and spiritually, it’s only against a backdrop of darkness that we can truly see the light shine. It’s easy (though most of us don’t do it anyway) to be spiritual when times are good, but exceedingly hard when they are not, and conversely it’s exceedingly difficult to see a candle flame in bright room, but turn out the lights, and voila.

And thanks to modern science we have the advanced equations with which to reveal the spiritual numbers that the kabbalists use to perceive the hidden universe, the numbers that lead them and can lead us to the necessary awe we’ll need to get us through the darkening days.

Through the equations below, copied from Wikipedia about the energy of black bodies, more specifically about the temperature of the earth as seen from space and the temperature of the Sun at its surface, we can perceive the spiritual relationship between Mother Earth and the Sun (father, Av) and our place in it. Since our lives depend on this connection between Earth and Sun and the relationship between them, it’s pretty important that we understand it.

It’s very technical, so unless you’re a physicist, scroll to the bottom, because the equations aren’t the point, only the results that they’ve found matter to us.

This is Science:

Temperature relation between a planet and its star

Here is an application of black-body laws to determine the black
body temperature of a planet. The surface may be warmer due to the greenhouse effect.[13]

Factors

(Image Source: Wikipedia)

Earth’s longwave thermal radiation intensity, from clouds, atmosphere and ground

The temperature of a planet depends on a few factors:

  • Incident radiation (from the Sun, for example)
  • Emitted radiation (for example Earth’s infrared glow)
  • The albedo effect (the fraction of light a planet reflects)
  • The greenhouse effect (for planets with an atmosphere)
  • Energy generated internally by a planet itself (due to radioactive decay, tidal heating and adiabatic contraction due to cooling).

For the inner planets, incident and emitted radiation have the most
significant impact on temperature. This derivation is concerned mainly
with that.

Assumptions

If we assume the following:

  1. The Sun and the Earth both radiate as spherical black bodies.
  2. The Earth is in thermal equilibrium.

then we can derive a formula for the relationship between the Earth’s temperature and the Sun’s surface temperature.

Derivation

To begin, we use the Stefan–Boltzmann law to find the total power (energy/second) the Sun is emitting:

The Earth only has an absorbing area equal to a two dimensional circle, rather than the surface of a sphere.
P_{S emt} = \left( \sigma T_{S}^4 \right) \left( 4 \pi R_{S}^2 \right) \qquad \qquad (1)

where

\sigma \, is the Stefan–Boltzmann constant,
T_S \, is the surface temperature of the Sun, and

R_S \, is the radius of the Sun.

The Sun emits that power equally in all directions. Because
of this, the Earth is hit with only a tiny fraction of it. This is the
power from the Sun that the Earth absorbs:

P_{E abs} = P_{S emt} (1-\alpha) \left( \frac{\pi R_{E}^2}{4 \pi D^2} \right) \qquad \qquad (2)
where

R_{E} \, is the radius of the Earth and
D \, is the astronomical unit, the distance between the Sun and the Earth.
\alpha \ is the albedo of Earth.

Even though the earth only absorbs as a circular area πR2, it emits equally in all directions as a sphere:

P_{E emt} = \left( \sigma T_{E}^4 \right) \left( 4 \pi R_{E}^2 \right) \qquad \qquad (3)
where TE is the black body temperature of the earth.

Now, our second assumption was that the earth is in thermal equilibrium, so the power absorbed must equal the power emitted:

P_{E abs} = P_{E emt}\,
So plug in equations 1, 2, and 3 into this and we get

\left( \sigma T_{S}^4 \right) \left( 4 \pi R_{S}^2 \right) (1-\alpha) \left( \frac{\pi R_{E}^2}{4 \pi D^2} \right) = \left( \sigma T_{E}^4 \right) \left( 4 \pi R_{E}^2 \right).\,

Many factors cancel from both sides and this equation can be greatly simplified.

The result

After canceling of factors, the final result is

T_{E} = T_{S}\sqrt{\frac{\sqrt{1-\alpha}R_{S}}{2 D}}
where
T_E \, is the blackbody temperature of the Earth.
T_S \, is the surface temperature of the Sun,
R_S \, is the radius of the Sun,
D \, is the distance between the Sun and the Earth,
α is the albedo of the Earth.

In other words, given the assumptions made, the temperature of Earth
depends only on the surface temperature of the Sun, the radius of the
Sun, the distance between Earth and the Sun and the albedo of Earth.

Temperature of Earth

If we substitute in the measured values for the Sun,

T_{S} = 5778 \ \mathrm{K},
R_{S} = 6.96 \times 10^8 \ \mathrm{m},
D = 1.496 \times 10^{11} \ \mathrm{m},
\alpha = 0.367 \

we’ll find the effective temperature of the Earth to be

T_E = 248.573 \ \mathrm{K}

This is the black body temperature that would cause the same amount of energy emission, as measured from space.

That’s what physics tells us; now, this is spirituality:

We already know what 5778 is supposed to portend and that the Sun, represents father (Av), and according to the kabbalists it also represents Zeir Anpin (6), making its speed of 600,000 mph even more fitting.

Now, that the sun’s surface temperature, or radiance, is 5778 K, is astonishing, but even more so given that as illustrated in the conclusions of the above scientific equations, the radiance of the Earth is 248.573, since 248 is the numerical value for Abraham, who is always associated with mercy(rachum) , which also has a gematria value 248.

One of the key spiritual concepts here is that this radiance of the Earth, this Light of mercy. is returning Light (Or Hazer, as it’s known to the kabbalists). The earth has no light of its own; it can only reflect light back part of the Light (heat, radiance) that Sun has blessed it with.

Now, while, it’s true that if the Earth’s temperature weren’t 248, it wouldn’t numerically mean Abraham, or mercy, it also means that it it were increased to 249 or decreased to 247, we’d have either global warming or another ice age. So that fact that the earth’s surface temperature is being increased by the greenhouse effect is just another indication of us selfishnessly and shortsightedly messing with divine intent and trying to play G-d, rather than take a clue and act like G-d (with merciful radiance).

It’s important to understand that the biblical names, especially the names of the Patriarchs, represent far more than historic figures; they represent energetic archetypes that are available for us to tap into, like the log in codes on cosmic web sites full of important information and gifts for us to download, and also full of great links to other important sites.

Moreover, given that that the exact number for the Earth’s radiance is 248.573, there are even more spiritual significances to be drawn (cosmic linkages to other key sites). And as is explained in The Genesis Prayer, the sum of the 5 Names of the 5 Books of Moses is 2480, (thus 2480+5 =2485), and just as important, the sum of all the positive integers through the number 70, as in the 70 years that Israel will attain in the year 5778 is 2485.

Just to give you an idea of how awesome a document the Torah and the divine intent that went into it, and that links its every word and letter to the cosmos, we can take the Torah’s 5 quantitative structural elements—the words, letters, verses, columns, and the rows—and collectively add them up to get 401273. Then considering that the Milk Way galaxy spirals according to the mathematical constant Phi, the resultant equation 401273/Phi (1.61803399) = 248000, shows us yet another integration of the divine schematic for the cosmos with the Torah and Earth, the intercession of the physical with the spiritual. (In The Genesis Prayer, from St Martins Press, you can read the details and see dozens of such awesome and awe-inspiring results).

That both 248.573 and 401273 end in 73 is not coincidental either, as 73 is the numerical value for Chochma/Wisdom, the 9th sefira (dimension). Indeed, the Torah’s first verse, which itself is integrally related to Phi, Pi, the 42-Letter Name of G-d(Ana B’Koach), and also to the value for Mashiach, has a numerical value of 2701, which is the sum of all the positive integers through 73.

And why 73, Wisdom?

Because just as the Torah has (600,000-408) flames of G-d’s wisdom, there is wisdom (73) for us in 248.573, and wisdom will be what is waiting for us at the end of the 70 years (from 2485 = Sum 70) since the birth of Israel in 1948 CE, for the Tree-of-life reality is wisdom. Remember, to the kabbalists, these numbers gateways, cosmic web sites. They can be the same to us as well, but at the very least they need to serve to awaken the spirituality inside us.

And since spiritually minded people have been referring to the earth as mother earth for some time now, it’s further interesting that 248 is also the numerical value of womb. In simple terms, the Sun gives, the earth receives, and uses what the sun gives to give birth to life.

To further understand their relationship we have to divide 5778 by 248.573, or 5778/248.573 = 23.2447, where we find that232 is the numerical value of the 4 aspects of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH: Av, Sag, Mah, Ban), the ineffable name of G-d.

Therefore, the relationship between the Sun, or the Mashiach Radiance, and the Earth, Abraham’s merciful nurturing radiance, is the fully expanded expression of G-d. This is the relationship G-d wants us to have with him. He doesn’t care about the numbers; He just wants us to get it, and to get it in time.

Incidentally, there were 2447 years (as in 5778/248.573 =23.2447) up to the Exodus from Egypt and the time of greatest reception of Light, the Torah at Sinai, exactly 66.6 Biblical jubilee years (or 3330 actual years) before 5778.

And to sum up the these numbers and put them into perspective: since this physical cosmic relationship between the Sun and the Earth is quoted in the temperatures 248 K and 5778 K, it’s more than curious that 5778 HC is the year 2018 CE in the Western Calendar and 2018 HC was the year of G-d’s (232) Covenant with Abraham (248), which has been prophesied over and over again to be fulfilled in 5778, which is 70 (as in the Sum of the integers through 70 = 2485) years after Israel became a Nation in 1948 CE, and is conversely the year Abraham was born in 1948 HC. Which now helps explain the scientific fact that when viewed from space, the Earth’s maximum point of reflected light is centered over Israel.

Moreover, this does help explain, as chronicled in The Divine Calendar, why King David, whose life’s midpoint ( in 2889 HC) marked the exact halfway point between Adam and Moshiach in 5778, and why he had to live for 70 years; and why the Second Temple was destroyed in 70 CE; and the First Temple in 422 BCE (422 being the gematria value of “seventy”); and also why the square root of the Hebrew year the First Temple was destroyed, 422 BCE = 3338 HC is 57.78.

Remember, these are gateways to knowledge and gifts, sites in a cosmic internet, which is why they always link one to another. And the more there are the bigger and more awesome a picture there is when you connect the dots. The only difference is that instead of G00gle’s algorithms, you need to use spiritual ones, (and trust me, spiritual ones are a lot easier to understand).

We could stop there, but it’s the nature of Kabbalah to look deeper, and when we do we find that the core temperature of the Sun is a whole lot hotter, in fact it is 156 Million degrees kelvin. And while 156 is the numerical value of Joseph, integrally linked to the Moshiach, the messiah. And while 156 =6 x 26 (the value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), it’s also 156,000,000 = 27,000 x 5778, its surface termperature.

Taking a second to digest this. The furnace of enormous power (156 million K) that the Sun has at its core, is spiritually the energy of Joseph (Yesod of Zeir Anpin), who represents the concentration into a point of all the energy of the 6 (as in 6 x 26) sefira (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin above it. Then from the Sun’s core this energy is stepped down 30 x 30 x 30 times to a level (5778 K) that will give and sustain life on Earth, who through the intervention of G-d’s 4 aspects (232) is defined by its own merciful nurturing returning radiance of 248.573 K.

And this is all going on against the backdrop of the expanding darkness that the Earth and the Sun are coming into alignment with, and which we can feel descending over us like a thick cold fog. One of the lessons we must take away from this cosmic equation is that we can’t just receive: we must give back if we are to perpetuate life (physically and spiritually). That these equations are connected to the Torah and its first verse are not surprising given that the verse states, “In the Beginning G’d created Heaven (Zeir Anpin) and Earth.” It continues on to say, “The earth was without form and empty with darkness on the face of the depths, but G-d’s spirit (ruach) moved on the water’s surface.”

This image of the Sun and the Earth juxtaposed to the darkness adn G’d Spirit moving across it are reflected in the picture of what our solar system will look like against the cosmos in the year 2012, and the years before and after for that matter. We can use it to glean the deeper meaning of what’s involved:

[2012-12-21]The round white spot (below the name “Pluto” is the Sun, and the half round spot between Jupiter and Uranius is the Moon. The white lines indicate the approximate boundary of the Milky Way.

In Abraham’s Book of Formation (the Sefer Yetzirah), he speaks of the 3 fathers (primordial energies), which he relates to “Earth, Wind, and Fire,” and he says “He set them in the Teli, the cycle, and the heart.” The first part, among other things, pretty obviously relates to the Earth (248), the ruach (spirit of G-d, 232) and the Sun, (fire at 156 million K and 5778 K). But, the Teli, which over the centuries has been described by the kabbalists of blessed memory as the pole serpent, a dragon, and the Milky Way galaxy, which if you look at the picture below, you’ll understand their similarity. Many of them also say that it is the axis around which the cosmos rotate.

And in Isaiah 27:1, we have a multiple references to the same Pole serpent, in conjunction with the End of Days and the final redemption: “On that day, with His great harsh sword, G-d will visit and overcome the Leviathan, the Pole serpent, and the Leviathan, the coiled Serpent, and He will kill the dragon of the Sea…”

We don’t know exactly what the Teli was that Abraham was referring to to, but the full verse from the Sefer Yetzirah is: “A proof of this true witnesses in the Universe, year, Soul and a rule of twelve and seven and three: He set them in the Teli, the cycle, and the heart.” We know the rule of 12, 7, and 3 refers to the 3 types of primordial Hebrew letters, which run on cycles and which spiritually control the planets and that these cycles also spell out 5778, but from the latest fusion of modern science and ancient spirituality we see that the universe is indeed evidence and witness to cycle of 25778 and of the year 5778 and in the heart of the Milky Way lies the darkness of the serpent that’s capable of overwhelming our souls, dragging them into the Abyss. And we also see that the universe and cosmos have been designed not only to give us Light and life, but also hope and the ability to see beyond the limitations and boundaries of our physical thoughts.

Now is the time; we need to use science to increase our awe of the divine and to take the signs that science call spell out for us to make us more spiritual and to become better citizens of the cosmos and of our communities. Now is not the time to take science as a refuge to hide behind as everything we thought we knew implodes around us.

As 2012 approaches, we all have a clear choice to make, metaphorically, we can get seduced by the Serpent and get swallowed up by the leviathan, or we can follow the Sun, the Light. The earth will be here either way, but whether we chose to follow its example of giving back and radiating the returning Light of mercy, or to keep selfishly taking, is up to each of us. Not only is the writing on the wall, but it’s in the stars. 4000 years ago, Abraham (248) wrote that ” A proof of this true witnesses in the Universe, year, Soul and a rule of twelve and seven and three,” could he have know as we do today that “twelve, seven, and three” help define the equation 401273/Phi = 248,000? Maybe not, but he didn’t have to; he had the necessary awe already. His is the energy and example we need to tap into to navigate through the darkness and into the Light.

[2012-12-21]

What’s Coming From America? The Light is Good.

For a long time most of the world has envied America. For a long time most of the world emulated America. For a long time most of the world took advantage of America. Most of the world hates America.

To cause so much of a reaction, there must be a lot of Light in America. That’s a spiritual law.

But you can’t see Light unless it’s encased in darkness. That’s also a physical law.

America and the Tetragrammaton, G-d’s ineffable Name, YHVH

Just 232 years ago, America created a revoltion and a government of, by and for the people, a truly revolutionary concept. It’s fitting that 232 is the total value of the full four aspects of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH, Av, Sag, Mah, and Ban)

Av (YVD HY VYV HY) is composed of Ayin (70) – Bet (2)

Sag (YVD HY VEV HY) is composed of Samech (60) – Gimmel (3)

Mah (YVD HE VEV HE) is composed of Mem (40) – Hey (5)

Ban (TYD HH VV HH) is composed of Bet (2) – Nun (50)

The two lower aspects Mah and Ban represents the union of Zeir Anpin (the 6 sefirot/dimensions of Heaven) and Malchut (our world), and thus aptly the 7 lines (sefirot) of Shem Mem-Bet, the 42-Letter Name, named thusly because the letters Mem (40) and Bet (2) = 42 in Gematria, the ancient science of letter valuation based on energy inherent in the Hebrew letters as first explained to us by Abraham, the Patriarch in his Book of Formation, the Sefer Yetzirah.

Meanwhile, the first letters of Av-Sag (Ayin-Samech), the two upper aspects, add up to 130, the numerical value of the two synonymous words and thus concepts of Sinai and Sulam (ladder) thought by the sages to originate from the center of the Shem Mem-bet. You must bear in mind that the 42-Letter name, while arranged 2-dimensionally in our world as a 6-letter by 7 line matrix, is really a multi-dimensional one in the upper worlds.

The combined numerical value of the representative letters (Ayin-Samech-Mem-Bet) is 70+60+40+2 = 172 and when we add 1 for the kolel, we get 173, as in 173 keys that the Zohar, the Book of Splendor written by Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai around 130 CE, tells us were given to Moses, which is just a figurative way of saying he was given the secrets of the 42-Letter Name (the Ana B’Koach), which has the small gematria value of 173.

The remaining letters (Bet-Gimmel-Hey-Nun) have a total numerical value of (2+3+5+50) = 60, the value of Samech, the letter hidden within the center of the Shem mem-bet, and the number of years of Israel’s existence as a nation when the USA reached 232 years of age (in 2008 CE).

And interestingly enough, if we use the squaring principles of the Arizal and Rabbi Chaim Vittal of blessed memory, the four aspects of the Tetragrammaton sum up to 5742, and then if we add 26 for the original Tetragrammaton they emanated from, as the Arizal was apt to do, we get 5768 or 2008 CE.

Alternatively, when we add up the spelled out gematria sofit values of Ayin-Samech-Mem-Bet and include the kolel of 16 for the 4 YHVH, we get 2448, as in 2448 HC, the year the Torah was given at Mt Sinai, 2320 years (or 232 x 10 sefirot) earlier.

Then when we add up the spelled out gematria sofit values of Ayin-Samech-Mem-Bet together with their second letters Bet-Gimmel-Hey-Nun and the kolel for the number of letters in their spelled out names and also in the 39 letters of the 4 aspects of the Tetragrammaton, we get 3760 HC (0-1 CE).

Now, the reason it’s said the letter Samech is hidden within the center of the 42-Letter name (Ana B’Koach) is that the value of the 21 letters through the midpoint of the 42 Letters add up to 1833 and there are 1833 samechs in the entire Torah.

But here is a deep secret: The value of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) is 26, which in Hebrew is Caf-vav (CV) and when we spell out Caf-vav for 3 iterations, we get (C+V) +(CP + VYV )+((CP +PE) + (VYV+YVD+VYV)) or (20 + 6) +(820 + 22) + (901 + 64) = 1833, so in the center of the 42-Letter Name is the ladder (sulam) to the YHVH, as has been told to us by chazal.

Let there be Light

In the 3rd verse in the Torah, G-d said “Let there be Light.” and the numerical value of that verse is 1729, which is significant because there are exactly 1729 words of numerical value 26, corresponding to the value of the Tetragrammaton, YHVH.

We have proven time and again that the Torah could not have been written by man, 3330 years ago, or even today–it’s just too mathematically intricate. And contrary to popular secular belief the Torah was not written by several authors over hundreds of years. It was produced and given to us instantaneously, complete in all its glory, which is why the moment the thought of Light entered the Torah, there were 1729 instances of it’s reflection throughout the 5 Books.

So after establishing the Light throughout the Torah, in the next verse, G-d establishes that Light is good, but also sets up a destiny that would happen 5536 years later, in the 111th jubilee year (Biblical 50-year period). We mention this because 111 is the numerical value of Alef, the first Hebrew letter, representing a beginning. And a very fitting one, since this destiny was hinted at in the 4th verse of the Torah and using the prophesied date of 5778 for the geula and coming of Moshiach, He would arrive in the 4th jubilee year after the 111th.

It’s in the Alefs (the Ones)

Now, there are 6 letter alefs in the Torah’s first verse, which correspond to the 6 elufim (6 thousand years universally understood by religious Torah scholars) until the arrival of the Mashiach, which in actuality is 222, or 111 x 2, years less in the year 5778, and since 111 is the value of the letter alef, those 222 years are really 2 alefs. It is also the sum of the first 3 letters (BRE) in the Torah along with the primordial alef, 221 +1 = 222.

So what was that destiny hinted at in the 4th Verse?

Genesis 1:4. “God saw that the Light was good, and God divided between the Light and the darkness.”

America was founded in 1776, a number that is one more than 1775, the total sum of the 27 letters in the Hebrew alphabet (the alef-bet including the 5 final letters), but perhaps more significantly 1776 is the total value of the 4th verse in the Torah (Bible).

It’s in the 4’s

OK, the 4th verse of the Bible connects to America and to Light, the 4 letters in the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), and to the 4 aspects of the full Tetragrammaton (YHVH), which are connected to pure Light and just maybe to America in 2008, when the darkness first descended upon it and as the 4th exile comes to a close, 4 jubilee years later. So isn’t it fitting that the 4th word in this verse is the 4 letter word, H’OR, “The Light,” that has been mentioned 4 times up to and including this 4th verse in the Bible?

Coincidence, right? Is it coincidence too that 1776 = 4 x 444.

And how many letters were in the 4 YHVH from above? 16. And hoe mnay alefs (111) in 1776? 16

Now let’s forget for a moment that the two times that “the light” is mentioned in this verse has the numerical value of 2 x 212 = 424, which is that of Mashiach Ben David, and let’s move on to examining this significant verse a little closer.

Just about everybody knows that “the light is good,” which in Hebrew is “H’OR Ci Tov‘ (HEVR CY TtVB), and the sum of the words “The Light is (H’Or Ci)” is 242, which is the age the USA will be in the year 2018 (5778 HC), the year chazal has prophesied for the coming of the Mashiach (Messiah) and the final redemption (See The Divine Calendar for details), but setting that aside for now, the sum of the first letters of the words in the verse through the word Tov (good) is 42, as in the 42-Letter Name that we know from chazal will help bring about the Geula, final redemption, and/or the “end of days” as it is known.

And while 242 can be looked at as the 4 aspects of the Tetragrammaton, 232, plus the 10 sefirot, alternatively, if we add the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David, 424, to the age of the US in 2018 (5778 HC), we get 424 + 242 = 666, the number chazal used to calculate the arrival of Mashiach Ben David in 5778. So how odd is it that 242 years is 4.2% of the 5778 years from Adam to the prophesied arrival of Moshiach?

If you ask why 666, considering all the negative Christian connotations? Remember, the backbone of the Torah is the 6 sefirot of Zeir Anpin, which is why all but 6 columns begin with the letter vav of value (6) and 60% of all verses start with vav (6), but as the Arizal explains 666 is really just 2/3 and in a very simplistic reducti0n of the Arizal’s explanations, 2/3 of the way through the 6 sefirot of Zeir Anpin is where the emotional world meets the intellectual one (the head of Rachel connecting to heels of Leah 2/3 up into Tiferet).

But back to the Light is Good.

We also know from chazal, the righteous sages of blessed memory, that the final letters in a Biblical phrase point to the future and the final letters in “H’OR Ci Tov‘ (HEVR CY TtVB) add up numerically to 200+10+2 = 212, the numerical value of “The Light” once again. The Torah often does that, utilize overkill and redundancy, when it wants to make sure we get the message loud and clear. In this case it is that: “THE LIGHT IS GOOD.”

The Chanukah connection to Light

We discussed in our post regarding Chanukah about it’s lengthy associations with bringing Mashiach, and the first letters of the phrase “the light is good,” which in Hebrew is “H’OR Ci Tov‘ (HEVR CY TtVB), also hints at Chanukah. As the first two letters Hey and Caf are the last letter of the word Chanukah and have the numerical value 25, as in the 25th of Kislev, the first day of Chanukah each year. And the letter tet, has the value 9 as in the 9 candles of the Menorah (Chanukiya). This would probably be nothing more than a coincidence if the phrase wasn’t about light and in the verse first verse of the Torah discussing light and if the holiday of Chanukah wasn’t all about lighting candles.

It’s also about the 42-Letter Name.

The 42-Letter Name has been utilized and concealed by the sages throughout the Mid-East and Europe for thousands of years, but its powers are only now being revealed for all to benefit from, and they are being revealed in America though web sites and blogs and books like The Genesis Prayer. So the fact that it is numerically linked to the birth date of the US should be no surprise.

And so there is a curious equation derived from cubing the digits in the year of America’s birth, 1776, which is that 13 + 73 + 73 + 63 = 903, and 903 is the sum of all the integers from 1-42, which because in spirituality nothing is ever lost, 903 is the collective consciousness of 42. It is in the same way that the value of the first verse in the Torah, 2701 is the sum of all the integers from 1-73, which is thus the collective consciousness of 73, the numerical value of Chochma (Wisdom/crown). And likewise, the same holds for the first 8 words of the Torah equally 3003, or the sum of all the positive integers through 77, Mazal (fortune), so this is obviously more than a coincidence. It is a plan.

It’s also very odd that 2701 – 903 = 1776 + 22, as in the 22 letters of the alef-bet, tying the Torah’s 1st and 4th verses together in an odd way.

Light or “the Light” is mentioned only 7 times in the Torah and the total gematria value of those 7 mentions is 1701, which must be meaningful, because the total gematria value of the Torah’s first verse is 2701, and the total gematria value of the 42-letter Name is 3701, each increments of 1000, which in Hebrew is elef, the same word as alef, the primordial letter that preceded the Torah, whose component value is 32, as in the ordinal value of the word H’Or (the light) and as in the 32 paths of Wisdom that is the tree-of-life.

So given these odd connections, let’s contemplate this next mathematical link between the 1st and 4th verses: 73 – 42 = 31, which corresponds to the value of El (G-d, 31) and to the 31 verses of the Torah’s first chapter. And then there is the equation 2701 – 903 = (1776 +22) = 1798 and 1798/31 = 58 = (100-42).

Which brings us back to Chanukah, whose first two letters spell Noach, of numerical value 58, and whose last 3 have the numerical value of 31. Now 58 is the numerical value of Noach (Noah) and the Biblical word for flood is Mbul, which begins with Mem-bet (42), but there is an interesting secret embedded in the Torah’s first reading, Bereshit.

As each column of the Torah scroll has 42 lines, the first chapter of 31 verses is written in 57 lines and the next two readings, which ends with Genesis 3:21 where the Lord banishes Man from the Tree-of-life, cover a total of 78 lines, which not only makes 57 and 78 written lines, but between them there are a total of 77 verses, aptly spelling out 5778, from Creation through the banishment from the Tree-of-Life reality.

But back to America’s birth and its connections to the Mashiach and thus the end of days.  Did you notice that 5778-1776 = 4002, which is both graphically 42 and numerically 40 (x10 sefirot) + 2 = 42, mem-bet?

And then there are the factors of 1776 = 37*12*4, which is all very interesting because there are 12 words in the 4th verse and it loosely connects us to Genesis (Bereshit) chapter 37 in Torah portion Vayeshev, the 9th one in the Torah and the 73rd paragraph in it.  Not by coincidence 73 is the numerical value of Chochma, (wisdom) the 9th or second highest sefira/dimension, and the inner light, or ordinal value, of the letters in Chochma (ChCMH) is 37.

In Vayeshev, Joseph (The Light) and one of Jacob’s 12 sons has the dream alluding to them final redemption and is sold to the Israelites (the Arabs and/or Persians) partially because of it. First they wanted to kill Joseph (the Light) then they sold him, then he was brought down to Egypt (Mizra’im), known as “the darkness,” where he shined, faded, and kept hope alive for 210 years until the 2448, when the Torah was given. We learn right away in Chapter 37 that Joseph was 17 years old when he had his dream of Mashiach and the end of days, and 17 is the value of tov (good), bringing us back to verse Genesis 1:4 and the Light is good,”and if we count backwards 17 years from the final year 2018, we get 2001, as in 9/11 2001 when the bubble first burst on our illusions and the countdown to the final days began. And again, where did this happen? To better understand the process of these last 17 years for America and the world please see our post titled “Separation.” As we head into the darker days, this serves to remind us that the final outcome for those that believe in the Light is tov (good).

We could go on and on, but suffice to say, there are reasons for everything, even for the darkness, and candles of light that were lit 5768 years ago will glow ever more intense the darker it gets.   The candles were lit for America, the country that for all its many faults, was created in, and for the most part lived by, the premises of freedom.  And thanks to America, people throughout the world have the freedom to choose the light. For all their hatred of America, if it were not for America most of the world would live under oppressive dictatorships, modern day Egyptian Pharaohs,  and not know freedom at all.

Now, it’s up to each of us in these ever darker times to remember to light our own candles and that “The Light is Good.”
