Tonight, Rabbi Shimon Revealed Another Secret

It’s fitting that this is Lag B’omer, the celebrated death anniversary of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, for not only did he pass away on the 33rd day of the Omer period, but in his final speech (See Zohar Idra Zuta), he spoke about the 115th psalm.

There are moments when science, religion and spirituality come together. There aren’t as many as there should be because everyone has his own entrenched beliefs. Nevertheless, this is one of those precious moments of harmony, when we can all be in awe, when we can all see and understand that the primordial underlying structure of the physical universe, that the Bible, which is the essence of religion, and that the structure of the spiritual world are all the same, and that this is in no way random.

There is an innate structure to our universe no matter how chaotic it may feel to use, and stepping back we can understand that; after all, if there are a set of natural laws and a set of mathematical (physical) constants then no matter what scale things should look alike and follow the same patterns. But what about an ancient scroll 248 columns long? Should the letters, words, chapters, and verses on that 3330 year old document adhere to the same pattern? If it was written by G-d it might, or by the universe itself it might? But if it were written by man, could it?

Maybe today it could, using computers and software, but 3330 years ago? And if it did, why was the number and date 5778 (2018 ce) singled out? Some of those answers can be found in the Torah portions read during the Omer in the portions surrounding Lag B’Omer.

The Torah or 5 Books of Moses is comprised of several finite and very defined structural elements: the number of words in it, letters, verses, chapters, paragraphs.  These haven’t changed in 3330 years, which in Biblical counting as we learn in this week’s portion, Bechukotai, is 66.6 jubilee years (50-year intervals).

The wonderful things about having quantitative numbers verses qualitative words is that we don’t have to interpret them. The total 187 chapters in the Torah divided into the Phi (.61803399) proportion is exactly (187  x .61803399) = 115.566, and 5778, the year prophesied by the tzaddikim for the arrival of the geula (final redemption) in jubilee years (5778/50) is precisely 115.56.

Moreover that 115th chapter is the chapter 25 of the Book of Leviticus, the first chapter in Torah portion Behar, and as it happens not only does Behar have 57 verses in it, but the very next portion (often read together by the way) is Bechukotai with 78 verses. Thus at the 115th chapter in the Torah we have 2 consecutive portions of 57 and 78 verses respectively, a nice allusion to 5778.

As we explain in much greater depth in There’s Nothing Random About the Universe, the primordial mathematical constant that controls the natural shaping of spirals, from the stars in our galaxy, to the petals on our flowers, to the shape of our seashells and our Trees, and to the growth of our populations is called Phi.

Phi is a specially balanced proportion that extends between the two parts of a segmented whole and then to the whole itself (ie the short length is to the longer one as the longer one is to the entire length).

Nature naturally follows this proportion at all turns, and when art or architecture does too it gives us a beautiful sense of harmony, balance, and well-being. But Phi is not only integral to the existence of the universe but to the design of the Torah as well, as we’ll show below. Moreover, as is covered extensively in There’s Nothing Random About the Universe it is uniquely connected to the number and thus the year 5778 as well.

There are 5 Books in the Torah, all of varying length, number of chapters, words, letters, verses, etc. and it was written down by hand thousands of years ago, before anyone had ever heard of primordial mathematical constants, or calculators. So it is amazing that the Torah is actually divided into specific segments using the Phi proportion with the first chapter of the Book of Numbers (Bamidbar) being the dividing point in terms of letters, of words, of verses, and of all 3 together, that splits the Torah into two harmonic portions.

Thus:

(Genesis + Exodus + Leviticus)/ (Numbers + Deuteronomy) =

1.61803399 letters, or words, or verses

And

(Numbers + Deuteronomy)/(Genesis + Exodus + Leviticus) = .61803399 letters, or words, or verses

So Lag B’Omer is the 33rd day of the Omer, and the 33rd portion of the Torah is Emor, the very portion where the number of words, letters and verses of the Torah is split into a proportion of .5778.

In summary, the have the portion of Emor connected to Lag B’Omer, and to the .5778 proportion in terms of the number of words, letters and verses in the Torah. Then we have the next two portions in the Torah, Behar and Bechukotai, with 57 and 78 verses respectively as the final two potions in Leviticus, and with their connection to splitting the Torah’s 187 chapters into the exact Phi proportion (115.56) that equations to the number of jubilee years from Adam to Moshiach in 5778. And then in the very next portion, in fact the very next chapter, the first chapter in Numbers, we have the Torah split into the Phi proportion in terms of letters, verses and words.

Now as explained in There’s Nothing Random About the Universe the connection between Phi and also Pi to 5778 is a profound one and Phi18 = 5778.000 precisely so maybe it’s more than coincidental that the gematria of Lag B’Omer is 358, that of Mashiach.

Maybe there is a reason for all this. And maybe we should wake up and stop perusing dates from dead cultures and calendars and start looking at the Bible (Torah) for the answers and timing that was given to us exactly 66.6 jubilee years before 5778 at Mt Sinai and that was spelled out for us in terms that could only be readily understood by our generation, the first to use computers and analytical software.

Thank you once again, Rabbi Shimon.  We’ll resume our discussions and revelations about the Future Holy Temple shortly.

Here’s a couple more equations for those so inclined, or so skeptical.

Also, as illustrated in The Genesis Prayer, while the collective number of words, letters, and verses in the entire Torah = 390,625 = exactly 58, they too as a whole connect with Phi in that:

(Words, Letters, and Verses in the Entire Torah)/(106 x (square root 1 + the square root of 2))

= 1.618022

Moreover, as is also illustrated in The Genesis Prayer:

The Words, Letters, Verses, Columns and Rows in the Torah = 248000 x 1.61803399

With 248 being the numerical value of Abraham and also of Mercy (Rachem) and also the number of columns in the Torah.

We’ve proven repeatedly in The Genesis Prayer, in There’s Nothing Random in the Universe and in our articles the purposeful interweaving of Pi (3.1415926358…) in the construction of the Torah. Now we see that the primordial mathematical constant Phi (1.61803399) was likewise programmed in.

Purim, Removing the Masks, Part I: New Revelations from the Beginning

It is said that Purim will be the only holiday that we’ll celebrate after the final redemption, but if all the holidays are based on cosmic windows, what separates Purim in the grand scheme of cosmic time? There is obviously some special connection between Purim and the times of Moshiach or the sages wouldn’t have made this special distinction.  We read about Purim in the Book of Ester so that’s where we must search for the answer.

It’s known that the Book of Esther is all about concealment, which is why we celebrate it with a costume party, but like the Torah there are layers of concealment.  The Name of G-d isn’t overtly mentioned in the Book of Ester, but it is found numerous times as the initials of phrases, often as permuted versions (ie YHVH, YHHV, VHYH). The Name Ehyeh (EHYH) is also found in the same manner, as are triplets of the 42-Letter Name and the 72 Names of G-d , but these are all relatively easy to find.

As we are so close to the time of Moshiach and the end of the 70 year period from the foundation of the State of Israel, we should be able to dig deeper, we sho9uld be able to reveal even more.  After all, the Book of Ester, marked the final years of the 70-year Babylonia exile.

It’s OK to get happy and a little inebriated on Purim in order to shed your mask and reveal the inner light within you, but the Baal Shem Tov and his students got drunk on Torah on Purim and so must we if we want to reveal the inner light within the holiday, the light of Moshiach (the Messiah) and Creation.

The story begins by telling us King Ahasuerus, who ruled over 127 provinces, displayed his wealth for 180 + 7 days for a total of 187 days.

Queen Vashti, his wife and equal, held her own party with her 7 maidens for the same final 7 days. On the 7th day, Ahasuerus consulted his 7 chamberlains.

The initials of the first two were Mem and Bet, an obvious allusion to the Shem Mem Bet (42-Letter Name) and also an indication that a journey would begin, as all Torah journeys begin with the Mem-Bet. The total value of their initials is 73, the numerical value of the sefira(dimension) of Chochma (wisdom), associated with both the 42-Letter Name and the Torah’s first verse, of 7 words, whose numerical value is 2701, which is also the sum of all the integers through 73.

Please keep in mind that at the heart of the Book of Ester is about removing Amalek (kabbalistic code for doubts) from our lives in order to bring about Mashiach, the geula (final redemption) and the Tree-0f-life reality, so just in case skepticism were to creep in and ruin it for us, the Book of Ester made certain we wouldn’t miss the connection to Chochma. The ordinal value of Chochma (CChMH) is 37, which is also the ordinal value of the initials of the 7 chamberlains (MBEBEZC).  Moreover, 37 x 73, the inner and surrounding light of Chochma equals 2701.

And as if that weren’t enough to grab our attention the last two chamberlain “Zether and Carcus” add up to 913, the same as the Torah’s first word, bereshit.

Oh, and by the way, those 187 days of display are analogous to the 187 chapters in the Torah, as are the 5 Parts of the Book of Esther analogous to the 5 Books of the Torah.

While the sages tell us Queen Ester was an incarnation of Sarah, the Matriarch, who live 127 years, 127 is also the number of ways any 7 items can be permuted, such as the 7 words in the Torah’s first verse, the 7 lines in the 42-Letter Name matrix, or the 7 dimensions (sefirot) in Zeir Apin, the ladder between Heaven and Earth to which both of them are associated.

We’re only at the 10th verse of the first of 10 chapters in the Book of Esther, an oft overlooked part except to the kabbalists, yet the 10 chapters in themselves is a hint that the Book of Esther may be about the necessary rectification of the 10 sefirot that comprise the Tree-of-life.

This 10th verse begins with  “On the 7th day, when the Kings heart was merry with wine” but let’s break that down, the 7th day is analogous to Shabbat, the 7th and final day of creation and “the King” to Hashem (G-d), and k’tov (was merry) has the numerical value of 37 once again and literally say was good, so the inner light of wisdom was good–the timing was right. The heart of the king (LV-HMLC) has the numerical value 127 once again, indicating that the timing was right to bridge the gap between Heaven and Earth, and with wine (B’YYN) can be understood as “in 70“. Thus the story is really telling us that in 70 years, the timing will be right for the re-establishment of the Tree-of-life reality, just as it was right for Ezra to bring the Israelites home from Persia after their 70 years of exile.

If you like how the Book of Ester’s revelations have begun you’ll love how it ends. In the next installment, we’ll reveal how the Hamelehk (The King) and the names of the other characters in the Purim story all reveal the same date for Moshiach’s manifestation.

Stay tuned for Part II

50 Gates and 42 Journeys

Every bit of the Torah has meaning beyond meaning and a purpose beyond purpose. In our previous article we spoke about Egypt being a code word for the “straits (constriction) of the Sea” with the sea (YM) being a code word itself for the 50 gates of Binah. The Arizal takes it a step further and says that the word for Egypt is also a constriction of the Holy Name “Who (MY)” which is comprised of the final 2 letters in the Holy Name Elohim (ELHYM), and moreover that (MY) likewise represents the 50 Gates of Binah. He referenced Isaiah 40:26 “Lift up your eyes on high, and see who (MY) created all this,” and explained that besides “Who” being connected to Binah and thus Understanding, the word for “All” used in this verse is spelled Eileh is spelled (E-L-H) as in the first 3 letters of Elohim.

The Book of Numbers, called Bamidbar (BMDBR) in Hebrew, doesn’t mean Numbers, but Wilderness, usually referring the desert, such as the Sinai Desert. And while it’s true that Numbers are a Wilderness, the important number is the number of journeys that is took the Israelites to cross the wilderness, which is also the number of journeys that it takes us and our souls to cross our wilderness. According to the Torah, the Sages and Tzaddikim that number is 42.

Even though the process of the 42 journeys began on the far side of the End Sea (YM SVP), the Torah tells us in portion Beha’alotcha that the Israelite Journey began here on the 2nd day of the 2nd month of the 2nd year (222). It was right after we learned about the 8 days of sacrifices, which can be connected to the arrival of Moshiach on or about 5778 as will be explained later, and also right after the final approved construction of the Tabernacle on the 8th day.  Since the Torah is always consistent once you understand the madness, we see that 2 x 2 x 2 = 8 and that this new journey into the Wilderness begins in the 64th or 8 x 8th Paragraph of Bamidbar.

The word Bamidbar (BMDBR) has the same numerical value (248) as Ramak (RMCh), meaning spear, which is most appropriate as the “spear i”s symbolized by the simple letter Vav (ו) of numerical 6, which kabbalistically represents the 6 sefirot (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin, as does the 4th Book of Moses, Bamidbar.

The 42-Letter Name of G-d, abbreviated (MB) also represents Zeir Anpin (the 6 dimensions of Heaven) as it acts as our link between Malchut (M) and Binah (B). Therefore, it’s not so surprising that Bamidbar (BMDBR) permutes to (DBR MB), which means say (speak) the 42-Letter Name.  And we know from Chazal that it is the understanding of the 42-Letter Name (MB) that will bring about the geula (final redemption).

As you know by now, it all emanates through the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) and the sum of the two numerical values of the spelled-out aspects of the YHVH that represent Malchut (52) and Binah (63) is 115, as in the 115 jubilee years (50-year intervals) from Adam to Moshiach in 5778. Moreover the relationship between Zeir Anpin and malchut can be expressed as 6/52 = .11538

The numerical value of the initials of the six (6) chapters that span the Behar-Bechukotai combination of 57and78 verses respectively though Bamidbar with its Phi and 5778 connections and through the Naso-Beha’alotecka Chanukah/sacrifices and 5778 connections through the portion of Shech Lecha (BBBNBSh) equates to 358, the same as Mashiach. These 6 parshot (portions) represent 6 of 54 or exactly 1/9th of the Torah’s 54 portions. These 6 parshot also represent 17 of 187 chapters, or exactly 1//11th of the Torah’s 187 chapters.

Maybe that’s just coincidence, though nothing in the Torah is coincidental. Our lack of understanding is just that: our lack of understanding, not a lack of meaning or significance.

These are secrets true and sure, but what we should take away from this is that as our journey through the wilderness gets difficult you should, “Lift up your eyes on high, and see who (MY) created all this.”

The deepest secret of all is coming up shortly.

Even More Beautiful!

One of the astounding aspects of the Torah is that the deeper you look the more beautiful and awesome it is, even if you’re receiving the same message over and over again in varying ways–like staring into those amazing and colorful digital renditions of fractals. That is because the Torah itself was designed fractally and fractals are naturally occurring phenomenon designed by the same force that created the Torah.

If you doubt that, we challenge you to explain just the few revelation in our last article “It’s a Beautiful Thing!” and which we’re expanding on in this one. So if you haven’t read it yet, should do so now and then read this one.

187 chapters

670 paragraphs

304805 letters

79976 words

5845 verses

There is a very concealed form of gematria that consists of multiplying the numerical values of the letters and dividing it by the sum of them, and as you may recall, that gave us approximately the value 3.14159, or Pi, when we applied it to the Torah’s first verse.

When we take the 18 positive digits of 5 core quantitative Torah elements and the deduct all the components of the year that the tzaddikim have declared for the arrival of Moshiach and the Tree-of-life reality, 5778, which would be the 5’s, 7’s, and 8’s and then apply this rare but most revealing form of gematria, we get:

(1+6+0+3+0+4+0+9+9+6+4) = 42

which is not only the source–the 42-Letter Name–of the entire Torah, but the Name that the tzaddikim have told us to understand in order to bring about the geula (final redemption). And since you’ll recall that the sum of the main 3 elements added up to exactly 58, and the square of that was 625 with .625 being exactly 5/8, it’s not coincidental that 42 = 100-58.

Now while Phi18 = 5778, in finishing the revealing gematria we find that the product/the sum of those 8 of the 18 digits is:

(1*6*3*4*9*9*6*4)/42=3333

That, of course, leaves us the 10 digits (8+7+7+8+5+7+7+5+8+5) or staring from the end of the list, (5+8+5+7+7+8+5+7+7+8) = 67, the numerical value of Binah, the sefira (dimension) of Understanding.

As you may have noticed there are 670 paragraphs in the Torah, or not coincidentally 10 x 67 (Binah).

And that there are 5845 verses in the Torah, which is 67 more than 5778.

There is even deeper understanding amongst this simple set of digits indelibly encoded into the 5 core and immutable quantitative elements of the Torah, but we’ll leave that for you to discover (and share with all of us) on your own, as the light of discovery burns brightest when you do it on your own, and all these layers of Torah understanding were put there for the sole purpose of allowing us to reveal light into our lives and world.

One other thing the sum of the 5 elements divided by 67 (Binah) = 5843 or 2 less than the number of verses 5845. Obviously they are connected, but why are there 2 missing? I guess G-d has more surprises ahead for us. Help solve the mystery. Someone just asked me why 70 years and not 72 as the Zohar also mentions, and I will answer him more completely after Shabbat, but perhaps part of the answer lies in this mystery.

Shabbat Shalom

Ezra
