We know that the number **5778** is inextricably linked to the mathematical constants **Pi** and **Phi** and that there seems to be a divine hand in it and plan afoot. See **There is Nothing Random in the Universe **for all the details on how this plan unfolds in the world of physics and mathematics, and see **The Divine Calendar** for how it has unfolded throughout history. Today we’d like to point out one more linkage between **Pi** and **5778**.

We’ve often shown how the Torah structure incorporates the summing of the integers, such as the numerical value of the **28** letters of the Torah’s first verse being equivalent to the sum of the integers through **73,** the numerical value of Chochma (windom), and teh first **8** words of the Torah being equivalent to the sum of the integers through **77 , **the numerical value of Mazal (G-d given fortune).

And we’ve discussed how **5778** is the sum of the integers through **107 **and of **54** average generations from Adam to the date prophesied for the final redemption, **5778 HC (2018 ce)**, the **28** generations from Moses to **5778** are each **120** years long, corresponding with Moses’ age of **120**, and with the sum of the integers through **15**.

It’s also known that the **28 **letters of the Torah’s first verse are divided into **7** words and **28** is the sum of the integers through **7**, and also that the first exile lasted **210** years, which is the sum of integers through **20**, and that there are **66.6** jubilee years from the date that that exile ended, **2448 **until **5778**, and that **666** is the sum of the integers through **36** (** LV**), the number of tzaddikim the

**Zohar**tells us is necessary to sustain our world.

You get the point. The spiritual principle is that nothing is ever lost, and that the integers represent energy equivalents, which are added together as they progress. And this is why all the **Y**uds, **V**avs and **H**eis, the building blocks of G-d’s Name, **YHVH** in the Torah, number **90,100**, which is the sum of integers through **424**, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David (the Messiah). See **The Genesis Prayer** for more details.

What the Torah is also teaching us is that our lives, and personal energy is the sum of our actions as well. That goes for us individually, as a nation, and as a global community. Remember, nothing is ever lost.

So, if we were to sum up all the *sums *of the integers through **107**, saying that each year of the grand exile from the Tree-of-life included the energy all the other years before it, each of which held its own repository of accumulated energy (for good or for worse) that that sum of sums would total 209,934, or **210,000 – 66**, and **66** is the sum of the integers through **11**, as in the **11** sefirot and** 11** unique letters that the Torah’s first verse is created with.

That there are **1000** (*keter*) years (units) for each year of the **210** years of the Egyptian portion of the exile is interesting, especially with this being **2011**, since **20** is the sum of the integers though **210**, and 11 is the sum of the integers through **66**, The equation above would seem to loosely tie the year **5778 (2018 CE)** to the year **2011**.

What’s the physical connection?

Too early to tell, except that** 2011** began with all these weird massive and sudden bird and fish deaths on **1/1/11**. This may all be coincidence; nonetheless, it is a fact that **66** is **.0314%** of **210,000** and that **314** is the mathematical constant **PI**.

There is nothing random in or about our universe. Which is why it behooves us to search out and understand the patterns. One of the basic tenets of Kabbalah is to keep asking why?

The numerical value **107** is that of Emunah (Faith) with the *kolel*. We must have faith to reach the Tree-of-life reality, and we must also have understanding.
