In a very simplified recap, we’ve linked the verse *Bereshit* **21:1** and the keeping of G-d’s promise to Abraham and Sarah, and the birth of Isaac to the coming of *H’Mashiach* (the Messiah) in **5778 (2018 CE) **and to the **Ari**, Rabbi Isaac Luria, (of numerical value **211**) and then we’ve linked *Bereshit* **23:1** to the coming of *H’Mashiach* in **5778 (2018 CE)** and to the **Ari **again. Now, let’s take it further, much further.

While we saw that the phrases “The Ari lives” and “The Messiah Lives” are connected to *Bereshit* **23:1** and to the phrase “Sarah Lives” there are two more verses connected to this **5**th portion that link with one another and bring further clarity to the generational chain of *H’Mashiach*, two more pieces of the puzzle if you will. They are *Bereshit*** 24:1** and **1 **Kings (*Malachim*)** 1:1**, both of which begin with the key phrases “**coming with the days**” commonly translated at “old age.” But “**coming with the days**” is a definite reference to ** ** for those that understand. *Bereshit* **24:1** is talking about Abraham and **1** Kings **1:1**, which is from the *Haftorah* portion associated and read with Chayei Sarah, is about King David.

*Bereshit* ** 24:1** is the verse recited **3** times after the* Hallel* prayers: *V’Abraham zaken Ba Bayamim V’adonai berach et Abraham bacol*. “Abraham was old, well advanced in years and God had blessed Abraham with everything. We’ll show shortly how this is a continuation of the previous verse, which was also the first in its respective chapter, as are these two, and we’ll also show how they all refer to the end of days (advanced in years) and to G-d’s fulfillment of his promise, his Covenant with Abraham.

The first connection between this verse and *Bereshit ***23:1** is hinted at in the palindromic word VYHYV, which if your recall indicated a coming and going in two different directions and thus a doubling of Sarah’s **127** years, as in **127 x 2 =** **254**, which just happens to be the numerical value of *V’Abraham*, the first word in *Bereshit ***24:1**.* *And if you recall from the posts about verse *Bereshit* **22:1** and **23:1**, about how they reflected Moses’ **515** prayers for the Messianic age to come and moreover that that the **516**th prayer would have ushered it in, thus finding that the numerical value of the 4 word phrase that begins *Bereshit* **24:1**: *V’ABRHM TzKN BE BYMYM,* is **516 **is quite significant.** *** *

The verse begins with 4 words phrase: *V’ABRHM TzKN BE BYMYM*, very similar to the verse in

**1**Kings

**1:1**that begins

*V’H’Melech David*

**TzKN BE BYMYM**, substituting the name King David for that of Abraham, and just like

*V’ABRHM*having the value of

**254**, or

**2 x 127**, the

**3**letters in the word

*melech*(MLC) King, spelled out, also have the value of

**(80 + 74 + 100) = 254 = 2 x 127.**But we can really begin to see the connection when we notice that the phrase

**“**

**David H’Melech Chai (King David lives**” has the numerical value of

**127**,

**as in the**

**127**years of Sarah’s life.

The first of the two similar verses that reflect the same thought, *Bereshit* **24:1** and **1** Kings **1:1**, has 4 words and the second one has 5, together, **9** words, once again reflecting that theme of **9** that we saw when we were analyzing Sarah’s verse* Bereshit* **23:1.** Since it takes two words to say “King David,” we see that while the first letters of the first 4 words of Abraham’s verse add up to **17**, that of *tov*, good, the first letter of the first **3** words in King David’s verse add up to **17**as well. This harks back to Creation when the Torah states that G-d made the Light and it was good (*tov*).

In case you haven’t realized yet, and I guarantee you have will by the time you finish this blog, the purpose of all this encryption is to lead us to *David H’Melech* (King David) and his connection to *H’Mashiach*. Even the **22** letters of the Hebrew *Alef-bet* say *David H’Melech*, loud and clear. The sum of the **22** letters is **1495**, which visually and mathematically breaks down to **14** and **95**, **and 14 is the numerical value of David and 95 is the numerical value of H’Melech, thus the sum of the 22 letter represents David H’Melech.**

Moreover, the various examples we have of specific words in the verses equating to **254 is more than just 127 x 2**. Since **the sum of the integers through 22**, **as in the 22 letters, is** **253 **and **254 is 1 more than 253**, these specific words are all references to **going above physicality**, which is what both Abraham and King David did. This is also a hint as to what we must do both in order to see and understand all this, and to be able to see and understand what will happen in the time of *H’Mashiach*, “in the coming of days.” We must expand our minds, our vision, our loving kindness (*chesed*) beyond the physical, which means beyond ourselves, and our selfish natures. Just as we do every *Elul* leading up to Rosh Hashanah, *but on a much grander scale,* we must prepare ourselves for meeting and greeting the King.

Using the **3** *Shanah* (years) and the **3** linked verses and the multiple of **3** word combinations that keep leading us to astoundingly redundant messages as yet another clue, we can take another **3** word combination, such as the values of the two ** BYMYM **from the two verses (

*Bereshit*

**24:1**and

**1**King

**1:1**plus the value of the word

*from those verse and add*

**TzKN****2**for the

*kolel*of the

**2**verses and we get

**204 + 157 + 2 = 363**, the numerical value of

*H’Mashiach*, “The Messiah.” Even verse numbers themselves,

*Bereshit*

**24:1**+

**1**Kings

**1:1**plus

**6**for the

*kolel*of the

**6**digits =

**241 + 111 + 6 = 358**, the numerical value of

*Mashiach.*

While the word* V’Abraham* from, *Bereshit* **24:1** has the numerical value *sofit* of **814**, the same as the verse Vayikra 19:18 paraphrased as Love thy neighbor…, the word *V’H’Melech* “And the king,” referring to King David from verse **1** Kings **1:1**, has the numerical value of **101**, which is the same as the *gematria atbash *of *Shanah *(ShNH), year, from verse Genesis **23:1**. And **101 **is** **the same numerical value as the cyclical ordinal value of the **3** Mothers (E, Sh,M), and is also the simple *gematria *of Michael, the archangel, protector of Israel, whose numerical value of **541** is the cyclical ordinal value of the **7** Doubles (*B,G,D,C,P,R,T*) as revealed in the *Sefer Yetzirah* and as will be explained soon in another post to this blog.

But more germane to our current analysis is that the ordinal value of Sarah, Abraham, and David is **46+41+14 = 101**, as well. And their numerical value, including the *kolel* for the **11** letters in their **3** names is **505 +248 + 14 + 11 = 778**, as in **5778**.

And since the first word of *Bereshit ***24:1**, *V’Abraham *and the first word of **1** Kings **1:1** together have the numerical value of **254 + 101 = 355**, that of *Shanah* (year) and/or *sefira* (dimension), so what better link to Sarah’s verse in *Bereshit ***23:1** can we ask for?

Except that when we strip away the prefixes as we often do when trying to find the essence of the matter in the Torah, we see that the spelled out *sofit *values for the **3** letters of the **3** words from the **3** verses, Sarah, (*ShRH*), the *EBR* of Abraham, and *Melech *(*MLC*) plus the **24** letters in the spelled out versions of these **9** letters = **2635 + 996 + 1345 + 24 = 5000 **exactly. And when we couple that with the equation just above, we get **Sarah, Abraham and King David = 5778.**

And just in case we think this is some colossal coincidence, please note that verse *Bereshit ***24:1** is divided down the middle into two phrases of **5** words each: *V’Abraham zaken Ba Bayamim and V’adonai berach et Abraham bacol*

**.**The second phrase “God had blessed Abraham with everything,” has the numerical value of

**1995 + 18 (letters) + 5 (words) = 2018. And since we know G-d made his Covenant with Abraham in 2018 HC, it must be telling us that Abraham will finally receive everything (His Promises fulfilled) in 2018 CE, 5778 HC.**

But what of the second part of **1** Kings **1:1**, which is also split to two** 5 **word segments (phrases)? That may be giving us another version of the end of days. “*YYCSHV BBGTYM VLE YChM LV*” translates to “he could not keep warm even when they put covers on him.” It’s a very cold, bleak, uncomforting end.” And since the first word in that phrase has a numerical value of **107** and begins and ends in **vav**, like the** V**HYH**V** that began *Bereshit ***23:1**, and because all the integers from 1 to **107** add up to exactly **5778**, we need to take this warning, this possible outcome, seriously. It’s not coincidence that there are **31** verses in **1** Kings **1**, just as there are in *Bereshit* **1**. And/or that there are **31** words in all **3** verses. It’s another beginning.

But how do we know these **3** verses are really meant to be connected and that they collectively connect to the end of days? The total standard gematria of the **3 **verses is **5770**, plus **8** for the **8** years that we’re told by *chazal **that H’Mashiach* will have to pass through before the *brit* (covenant) can be achieved gives us** 5778**, and also a clue that the *tzaddikim* of blessed memory are probably correct. And the square root of the *gematria sofit* value for the 3 verses is **111.848**, pointing us again to the *Alef*, and the unity of the three ones, or columns of the tree-of-life in the end and since **848 = 2 x 424**, the value of *Mashiach Ben David*, it’s also pointing to the 2 heads once again.

Now, going back to the **3** *Shanah’s* (years) from the 2nd part of verse *Bereshit* **23:1**, Sarah’s verse. When we spell out (ShNH, ShNH, ShNYM) using the* mem sofit* we get **2048**, a reference to Abraham (**248**) no doubt, but more to the point, the **2048** is the year their son, Isaac was born. Incidentally, Sarah died when he was **37,** as in the value of the first word of that verse (*VYHYV*), which starts out “this is he life of Sarah.” Moreover, **2048 – 27 (letters) – 3 (words) = 2018 yet again.**

Of course, simple gematria of the 3 *Shanah*s (years) gives us a value of **355 + 355 + 400 = 1110, or 10 x** **111**, the numerical value of the letter *alef*, and also *elef*, the word for **1000**, thus **10 x 1000**, which either way, translates to the** keter (crown) or head of the 10 sefirot.** And if we add the ordinal value (

**138**) to it to get the complete value, we get

**1110 + 138 = 1248,**a simple allusion to

**1000**(

*keter/elef/alef*) and to Abraham (

**248**). It should be very clear by now, that this sequence and these verses are telling us about the seed level of

*Mashiach*, of the universe, and about both the beginning and the end of it all. And that sentiment is echoed in that the

**3**

*Shanah*sequence ends in

*Yud-mem*, representing

*Keter*of value

**620**.

And speaking of first words, the numerical value of the first word in each of these three verses, not only begins with *vav*, making **3** *vavs*, or **6 + 6 + 6 = 18**, the value of *chai*, life, but they in simple gematria they are **101 + 254 + 37 = 392** and when we add the *kolel *of **16** for the **16** letters in the **3** words, we get **408 **as in the **408** missing composite letters from the Torah, **(600,000 – 408 letters)**.

Incidentally, the **231** in Genesis **23:1 **can be said to relate to the **231 Gates of Wisdom **discussed in the *Sefer Yetzirah*. Nevertheless, of the **12** words in the verse, Genesis **23:1**, the two-word phrase *Sarah Chayeh* is repeated, not only emphasizing that the Torah is talking about someone beyond Sarah, someone yet to come, someone from her spiritual lineage. It also allows us to take note that when the *kolel* for the **6** letters in this phrase is added to its complete word value (normal and ordinal together) we get a total of **613**, as in the **613** precepts delineated in the Torah, indicating we are talking about a complete *tzaddik *(righteous soul).

The word * TzKN* repeated in each of these

**2**similar verses (

**24:1**and

**1**Kings

**1:1**) has value of

**157**so the value of both these words together is

**157 x 2 = 314**, that of

*Shaddai*Mettatron,

**Pi**, etc. This in itself is a hint to the

**3**letters of David (DVD) that have a value of

**14.**And speaking of

**Pi**, the letters

*Shin*and

*yud*that were both repeated

**9**times in

*Bereshit*

**23:1**are not only completed with the letter

*dalet*of David to form the

*Shin-dalet-yud*of

*Shaddai*, but they translate through

*gematria atbash*to

*Mem*and

*Bet*as in the

*Shem Mem-bet,*and as noted in

*The Genesis Prayer, when we divide the number 9 by the small gematria*of the

*Shem Mem-Bet we get:*

**9**/.123049027395534023292943802957033870306904 =

**73.14157**77

= **70 + 3.141577**

The simple equation not only yields an impossibly precise approximation of the mathematical constant Pi, but also **5777**, the year **2017** CE. It’s also coupled to the all-imp*ortant* Biblical time span of **70** (years), including David’s lifespan, and to the number **7****3**, the value of *Chochma*, wisdom, the **9**th *sefira*, but we’ll get into **Pi** and its connection to **5778** a little later.

Next, the words *BE BYMYM* common to both verses (**23:1** and **1** Kings **1:1**) contains two *mem-bets* each, signifying the upper and lower Names, meaning redemption, *Pad* (*PD* of numerical (**42 + 42**) value **84**, and represented by the *Eyheh Asher Eyheh* “I am that I am,” also known as the two heads (RESh, a permutation of *Asher*), which fits with the twin numerical values of the two *Yud-mems* of the* B YMYM.* and the

*Bet (B)*which signals

**2**

*,*by its value (

**2**)/ Meanwhile, the

*Alef*of

*BE*, is also a sign of head, as it’s the primordial letter that comes before the

*Bet*of

*Bereshit*, the physical first letter of the Torah, and it’s also the head of the

*alef-bet*. Spelled out y

*ud-mem*has the numerical value of

**100**and the second one has the

*sofit*value of

**620**, both representative of

*keter,*and thus the two heads, or crowns. This also is indicative of a crown at either end, at the beginning and at the end, though that is up to interpretation.

The other head is also Sarah, as the numerical value of **3** of the first 4 words of *Bereshit ***23:1** subtracting her name they total (**VYHYV** ShRH** ChYY MEH**) **37 + 28 + 46 = 111**, which is that of the letter *Alef*.

The other two heads are Sarah’s spiritual lineage and Abraham’s, the two halves of the soul that came together with G-d’s blessing to make their spiritual seeds as numerous and as bright as the stars.

Nevertheless, the word **BYMYM** when spelled out has the value **412 + 100 + 100 = 612**, as in the value of the word* Brit*, Covenant, so we know that the Torah is not fooling around when it mentions **“the coming of days.”**

There are many different types of gematria, (established encryption decoding systems, some more common, like *sofit* (final letters), *katan* (small), *atbash *(reverse a*lef-bet*) and *albam*, (plus 11 or middle of *alef-bet*) and some are much more concealed and known only to a very few people today. but all are revelatory. Nevertheless, it should be cautioned that other than very basic gematria, none of the others should be utilized unless it has already been established that the particular subject that you’re examining has significant already proven spiritual relevance. In this way, you are not imposing your own creation, but rather stripping away the layers to reveal more and more about the spirit of the subject.

Since we’ve more than established the significance of *Bereshit* **23:1,** and indeed the name Sarah, we can see that her name may contain additional encoded information. And while the name Sarah in gematria *atbash* (**BGZ**) has a numerical of **95** as in *H’Melech*, “the King,” in gematria *albam* it is **109** as in *David H’Melech , “*King David.” Moreover, the the first line of the **42**-Letter Name (*Shem Mem-Bet*) which included that letters **(BGZ)** and which has the numerical value of **506** (one more that Sarah, **505**) has the remaining letters (EYT) and if we convert these back using *atbash* as well, we get (**EMT**) which spells the word *Emet*, meaning truth, commonly thought of as Torah truth. Thus the the **42**-Letter Name’s first line, whose value equates with that of the Hebrew word for “Unconditional Love,” translates to “*Sarah Emet*.” And thus both, thN Name Sarah and the 42-Letter Name, not insignificantly, connect to *David H’Melech*.

The sum of the *atbash *values for Abraham and Sarah is 898 plus the *kolel* for the **8** letters in their names gives us **906**, as in the value of the last line of the **42**-Letter Name again, and as the value of the words *Et Sarah* from the *Bereshit* **21:1** which began our sequence of posts on this subject. Moreover, as we shall see momentarily, **906 BCE** is also the year *David H’Melech* was born.

In relation to the **3** different year parameters mentioned in Genesis **23:1**, which we know from the *Zohar* relate to the different sets of *sefiro*t, 100, 20 and 7 respectively, if we follow Abraham’s advise in the *Sefer Yetzirah*, we get **(100 x 20) + (100 x 7) + (20 x 7) + (1 x 2 x 7) = 2854 **and **2854 HC** **is the year King David was born.**

There is no coincidence here. If you haven’t read it already. I suggest you check out the blog post titled **“King David and the Messiah**” and also the book *The Divine Calendar**,* but a few highlight below will illustrate my point:

**King David was born in 2854** **HC**

**2** x **2854** **HC **= **5708 HC**

**Israel Received Statehood in 5708 HC**

**therefore**

**King David’s Birth marks the Mid-point to the Founding of Israel**

**5708 HC = 1948 CE**

**therefore**

**Israel Received Statehood in ****1948 CE**

**2854** **HC **= **906 BCE**

**2854** – **906** = **1948**

**2 x 906 BCE = 1812 BCE**

**1812 BCE = 1948 HC
**

**Abraham was born in 1948 HC**

**therefore**

**Abraham was born in ****1812 BCE **

**and therefore**

**King David was born at the Mid-point between Abraham’s birth and the year “0” CE
**

**King ****David was born in ****2854 HC
**

**King ****David** **died in** **2924 HC**

**therefore**

**King David lived 70 years**

**2854** + **2924** = **5778 HC**

**therefore**

**The Mid-point of King Davids life = 2889 HC**

**The Mid-point from Adam to Mashiach = 2889 HC**

**therefore**

**The Mid-point of King Davids life marks the Mid-point in the Time-lime to Mashiach
**

**King ****David was born in** **906 BCE**

**King** **David** **died in 836 BCE**

**906** + **836** = **1742 BCE**

**1742 ****BCE =** **2018** **HC**

**2018** **HC =** **The Covenant of Abraham**

**2018 CE = 5778 HC**

Pretty convincing!

Now regarding the **3** sets of years again (**100, 20**, and **7**) the value of the word used for **100, **(*meah*)** **is **46** and that of **20 ***(esrim)*** **is **620**, which we’ve stated perviously is *keter*, but** 620 + 46 = 666**. And while the sum of the values and ordinal values of **20*** (esrim*) and** 7** (*Sheva*) together is **620 + 80 + 272 + 39 =** **1111**, the sums of the words used for **100, 20**, and **7 **collectively sum to 10**38** and 1**38** for their simple and ordinal values respectively, once again indicating the **38** years of the Ari’s life that were even more specifically indicated in the previous posting.

Also in relation to King David, who lived **70** years, we should note that the numerical value of the Ari, **211**, is half of **422**, the numerical value of the word seventy **70**. For many more connections to this and the First Temple’s destruction in **422** BCE and the Second Temple’s destruction in **70** CE, please see *The Divine Calendar*.

The *gematria albam* of the **3** interconnected names **Abraham, Sarah **and **David** including the *kolel* of **15** for the **15** letters in their names is** 948** as in the **948** digit in **Pi** where the final series **5778**18**5778** occurs, but to really understand that and to grasp its profound significance for us we must read *There’s Nothing Random in the Universe.*

Before we move on to the next clue the Torah gives us, I received an email from a reader Ron A who had made a profound finding:

**יִּ**הְיוּ

**חַ**יֵּי

**שָׂ**רָה,

**מֵ**אָה

*VAV*‘ of

*zeir anpin, Yihyu, Chayey Sara Meah*, take the first letter of each word and you get ‘mashiach’…”

As stated in the last posting, verse Genesis **23:1** that gave rise to all the connections from Sarah to the incarnations of *Mashiac*h (the messiah) is the **5**th portion in the Torah and it is the** 55**th paragraph in the Torah so how perfect is it in the grand scheme of things that this verse contains the word *Shanah*, year, of numerical value **355**, twice, **3** times when we consider the plural version, *Shanim*. Why perfect? Because we know from the *Zohar *that the value of *Shanah* (ShNH) is also that of *sefira *(dimension), as in the **10** *Sefirot* (dimensions) of the Tree-of-life, and not only is **55** the sum of all the integers from 1 to **10**, but **55** is also the **10**th Fibonacci number (1,1,**3,5,8**,13,21,34,**55**…), a series of numbers integrally based on the mathematical constant **Phi **which controls the spiraling nature of the universe and is integrally linked to the year **5778**, as explained in the except below. And you may have also noticed that the consecutive 3rd, 4th and 5th Fibonacci numbers spell out **358**, the value of *Mashiach*, while, it just so happens, the numerical sequence found at the **10**th digit in **PI** is also **358**. And it’s also perfect because when we add the *kolel *of **3** for the **3** letters of the word *Shanah *(ShNH) we get **355 + 3 = 358, Mashiach**.

And of further interest here is that that the first **5** Fibonacci numbers **(1,1**,**3,5,8**,13,21,34,55…) total **18**, as in *chai*, lives and the **3** *vavs* (**6,6,6**), and as in its connection to **2018 **and** 5778 **as will be explained below. Also, while the first **4** numbers add up to **10** (*sefirot*); the first **6 **add up to **31**, the value of *El*; and the first **7** add up to **52**, the value of the Tetragrammaton YHVH at the level *Ban, Malchut*; and the first **8** add up to **86**, the value of *Elohim*; the first **10** equal 230, as in Genesis Chapter **23**, where all this about the **10** *sefirot* is revealed.

Nevertheless, As we explore the relationship of **55** and **505** and **555** to the Ari, of numerical value **211** and verse Genesis **2:11**, to the year of the arrival of *Moshiach*, it’s worthwhile to note as discussed in *There’s Nothing Random in the Universe* in regards to the mathematical constant **Pi** that the ” Small Gematria Value of the **42-**Letter Name = **173** and that at **173** digits after the decimal place in **Pi** we find the numerical string** …2110555**… and **2110555 =** **exactly 5778.28** Sidereal Years. Moreover, we know that this isn’t an odd, yet still pure coincidence because besides the **3** statistically impossible inclusions of **5778 (2018)** and also of the following year **2019**, there’s yet another numerical string within these first 1000 digits of **Pi **and that’s 737190, which in sidereal days equates to exactly **2018.28** years.”

This excerpt from There’s Nothing Random about the Universe helps explain the connection of **Phi**, the mathematical constant that controls the spiraling nature of the universe to the number **18**, that of the **3** *vavs *(**6,6,6**) and of (ChY) *Chai*, as in *Sarah, Chai, Mashiach Chai, David Chai*. *Moshe Chai,* and the *Ari Chai*, all definitive connections we’ve seen linked to these verses **( Bereshit 21:1, 23:1 and 24:1, and 1 KIngs 1:1):**

# Chapter 4

### And that single unique number is 5778.

For some reason beyond explanation **5778** and **Phi **were designed to interact, and **5778** was made to stand alone within all the numbers in the known universe.

### Why would this be possible?

Why it’s possible for a number to stand out so is difficult to say and maybe not for us to say at all. But we can explain a little bit about the mechanism and the why might get clearer as you get deeper into this book.

The next series of minor revelations may shed some light though on the process by which **5778** became so unique. When we divide **5778** by **Phi** raised to the power of 15, or **Phi ^{15}**, it equates to approximately

**4.24**

**,**which is the numerical value of

*Mashiach Ben David*

*,*the Messiah, Son of David.

Then when we divide **5778**** **by **Phi** raised to the power of 16 we get **Phi ^{2}**, or written as an equation,

**5778/Phi**

^{16}= 2.61803399 = Phi^{2}**.**

Then when we divide 5778 by Phi raised to the power of 17 we get Phi, or written as an equation **5778/Phi ^{17} = 1.61803399 = Phi**

**.**

And finally when we divide **5778 by Phi** raised to the power of **18** we get 1, or written as an equation **5778/ Phi ^{18} = 1.0000000…**, representing a singularity, an absolute oneness.

** **

Therefore **Phi ^{18} = 5778**

**and the square root of**

**18 = 4.242640**, once again the numerical value of

*Mashiach Ben David*

*,*the Messiah, Son of David. And this time followed by the numerical value of the Tetragrammaton, 26.

We can begin to understand that there is a dynamic occurring here and that 5778 didn’t accidentally become unique. Regardless of how we want to read this, **5778, Phi**** **and the number **18** are integrally and dramatically linked together.

It’s interesting that 17√5 and 19√5 bound 18√5 on both sides.[1] It’s the same with dividing **5778** by Phi raised to the power of 6 less 17, and also 19. In other words we get a resultant whole number to 3 decimals places or more when with the equation** ****5778/(Phi ^{6} – 17**

**),**and also with 5778/(Phi

^{6}– 19).

It’s as if the numerical universe were zeroing in on 18 and **5778**.

**And 5778****/****(Phi-1) ^{18}**

**=**

**33385284**

**=**

**5778**

^{2}

And as we learned in The Divine Calendar, **3338** **was the year the First Temple was destroyed.** This also means that **(Phi-1) ^{18 }= 1/5778.**

**5778/ Phi ^{18} = 1.0000000**

**Phi ^{18} = 5778**

**√18 = 4.242640**

**5778/(Phi-1) ^{18} = 5778^{2}**

**(Phi-1) ^{18} = 1/5778**

### What Does Phi^{18 }= 5778 Mean?

** **

The equation **Phi ^{18} = 5778** simply means that

**5778**is the

**18th**

**power of Phi**. And as a derivative of Phi itself the number

**5778**might be expected to work out to a whole number, or nearly a whole number, at some point.

But that doesn’t answer what the significance of **18** is, or why it had to equal **5778**. And it certainly doesn’t explain why **5778** in the Hebrew calendar is 2018 in the Gregorian or Western calendar. Once again **5778**** **and **18** linked together.

** **

If you’ve already read *The Divine Calendar* you already understand why that is and don’t believe the **18** in **2018**** **and in **Phi ^{18} =**

**5778**to be coincidental. As you read this book you’ll also come to know that it wasn’t.

**5778 is the 18th Power of Phi**

**or**

**phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi x phi = 5778**

**5778 HC = 2018 CE**

**Phi**^{6} x Phi^{6} x Phi^{6} = 5778

**6+6+6 = 18**

[1] Five(5), but possibly more significant 17 and 19 are part of the exceedingly rare set of Mersenne primes, meaning that they satisfy the equation for being prime numbers such that M_{n} = 2^{n }–1. They are the 6^{th} and 7^{th} Mersenne Primes, which is also probably significant as the dimensions of the 42-Letter name Matrix are 6 by 7, but that will be better understood in the course of this book. The prime number 67, the numerical value of the dimension of *Binah* (understanding), also connected to the 42-Letter Name, is another of the Mersenne Primes, a set of only 12 numbers up to n = 127, making M_{127} an enormously large number of 39 digits.
