The Prime Directive

To have faith is to believe in G-d. To believe in G-d is to believe that everything has a purpose, a reason for being.  That begins with the numbers and ends with us.  There is no physicality without numbers because numbers describe the size and pathways of matter. There is no physicality or spirituality without energy and the numbers represent that energy, bridging the gap between the two worlds.  More than just descriptions of the energy’s strength, frequency and amplitude, numbers are also the portals that link the two worlds. They also mark our time and our place in both history and our universe.  Given their significance, how can they be random? There not. And once we understand that, we can begin to harness them. Once we truly understand that nothing is random we can start working the system, rather than let the system work us.

We have seen repeated how there are digit sequences built into the primordial mathematical constant Pi, which by bending straight lines into a circles and spheres gives our physical world its shape and also by bending time gives it its cyclical nature.  We have seen how those sequences relate directly to the Divine Calendar and how both Pi and those sequences have been integrated into the Torah.  We have seen how Phi, the primordial mathematical constant that gives shape to the natural spiraling growth in all aspects of our universe, integrally connects to the Torah and to the Divine Calendar.  We have seen how the very structure of our solar system can be broken down into a very few specific numbers that artificially repeat over and over again, and also relate directly to the Torah and the Divine Calendar.  They all integrate like one gigantic clock mechanism, one that cannot be carved out by random nature.

We have seen how the quantitative dimensions of the Torah have a multifaceted purposeful design with an inhuman precision. We have seen how the sequential integers both inside and outside those quantitative dimensions can be summed up to reveal the spiritual gateways, linkages, and portals between the worlds. We have seen how viewing the numbers in multiple dimensions by squaring and cubing them and even raising them to higher powers reveals the same symmetry, as does stacking them in pyramids in both 2 and 3 dimensions, as does packing them into geometric shapes like the 541 units that form a 12-gonal star, the Magen David, exceptional in that the numerical value of Israel is 541.  Coincidental in that there are 541 rooms in the Capitol building in Washington, and noteworthy in that we have seen the border dimensions of the state of Israel also match up with these highly symmetrical and redundantly coded numbers.

There is one set of numbers, though, a subset of the integers, that is considered more primal than all the rest.  These are numbers that have no factors other than themselves and One.  In other words, they cannot be reduced by division. They are the Prime Numbers.  Once again, as they done with every aspect of physicality we have shined a spiritual light on, scientists will tell you emphatically that prime numbers are random and that there is no discernible pattern in them, none. For 2300 years, ever since Euclid defined them as “A prime number is that which is measured by the unit alone,” mathematicians have been looking for such patterns and have poured superior computer power in search of them, and yet have found nothing.  Why?

Prime numbers are unique, each one is an undividable unity until itself. If they could find a pattern that generates them, they could take G-d out of the equation and call it simply physics. If rather than a generating pattern, there were undeniable patterns within the numbers, if there were proof of deliberate design, the opposite would be true: There would have to be G-d.  There is the natural aspect of G-d, called Elohim that even Pharoah accepted. It is Elohim that defines the laws of physics.  Then there is the higher aspect of G-d, who goes by the unpronounceable (יהוה) and other higher Names. This is the G-d who actually Creates.  He Creates with purposeful design that defies the simple laws of physics.  This is why scientific elites hand out millions in prizes to anyone who can find generating patterns in the numbers. They do not spend even a moment looking for the more obvious deliberate designs that would rock their world.

As we illustrated in The Genesis Prayer the sum total of the spelled out 22 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet is 4248. We can readily recognize the significant spiritual numbers 42, as in the 42-Letter Name of G-d; 424, as in the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David; and 248, as in that of Abraham, but we are not going to rehash 14 years of articles, explanations, and proofs in this short space.  We are simply going to advise you that the first few prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23 and when we divide One (1), as in “G-d is One,” by a numerical string made by those numbers sequentially we get:

1/.2357111317192329 = 4.24248100930230

Thus One (1) divided by a simple sequence of the prime numbers in order gives us 42, followed by 4248, and 100….. or the 42-Letter Name of G-d; 424 twice, as in the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David; and 4248, as in the spelled out 22 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet, including 248, as in  Abraham, the first person to acknowledge the One G-d, followed by 100. And this is just the beginning.  Diving One (Unity) by a G-d given string of numbers to get another astounding G-d given number is not new to us.  In the same Genesis Prayer book we revealed that dividing the number 9 by the numerical string formed by the 42-Letter Name of G-d gave us 9/.1230490… = 73.141593 or 70 plus Pi (3.14159265).

It is not the purpose of this article to discuss the merits of specific equations, it is odd, though, how those same numbers came up when, with the help of Rav Brandwein of blessed memory, we analyzed an unfathomable secret of the Zohar concerning the upper and lower worlds and the primordial aleph (א).  It is also notable that when we take only the numbers following the zeros (0)’s in the resultant quotient above, 4.24248100930230605, we get 9265, as in Pi (3.14159265) and as in the primordial aleph (א) equation: the Zohar’s 300109265 worlds divided by (Aleph(א)  X Aleph(א)) = 2701, the numerical value of the Torah’s first verse.

Nevertheless, we already know everything ties together, and we hope to wrap it up nicely and in a very simplistic way in the final of these three articles.

Speaking of Aleph (א) in the Torah, at the very end of parsha Balak in paragraph 107 of Bamidbar, translated as Numbers, we find, as the very last word of the verse and paragraph, the word Aleph (אלפ).  Balak had just finished prophesying about the end of days and Pinchas has just saved the Israelites and ended the plague of 24,000.  Not only is finding the Aleph (א), the quintessential beginning, in the end noteworthy, but the phrasing in this last verse is also telling.

The prophecy about the end-of-days starts off with the verse, “…not in the near future, A star shall go forth from Jacob, and a staff shall arise from Israel.  The first two words (ולא קרוב )  in this phrase contain a word with the same numerical value of Korach, who is supposed to be the righteous leader in the time of Moshiach, and both words together add up to 345, the numerical value of “Moshe,” the redeemer.  Nevertheless, it is the juxtaposed names of Jacob (  מישראל and מיעקב) that prove most telling. Notice how they both begin with the letters (מי), which individually means “who” or “who will” in Hebrew, but together forms the word yamim (ימים), meaning “days.” The two names ( מישראל and מיעקב) begin and end with the same letters (ל and ב) that the Torah begins and ends with.  While the two names in the prophecy have between them concealed inside them the names of Israel’s arch foe, Amalek (עמלק), Balak (בלק) and Balaam (בלעם), the letters that are not used in these sinister names appropriated form the word Masher (מאשר) meaning “rather than” and also “approved/endorsed, happy, content.”

What is most important is that the numerical value of both names together ( מישראל and מיעקב) is 903 as in the sum of the integers from 1 – 42. “From Jacob (מיעקב)” or kabbalistically, “from Tiferet (Zeir Anpin)” begins and ends with (מב) or 42 in gematria, as in the 42-Letter Name, the understanding of which, as Rav Brandwein of blessed memory pointed out, will bring the Geulah.  It is not a coincidence that the Israelites endured a journey of 42 places, each punctuated in the Torah with (מב) to reach the Promised Land, or that Balaam tried and failed 42 times to curse the Israelites.  The straight line from Jacob to Israel has 42 portions. The gematria of “From Jacob (מיעקב)” is 222 and since Zeir Anpin is 6 or 6000 taking 222 from Jacob leaves us with 5778.

Why do we dig and search for meaning in every word of the Torah? Because each word is a well and the deeper we dig the more mayim nukva, the precious pure desirous waters of our world enter it, rather than be squandered about on our arid plain. These mayim nukva solicit the coming down of the Mayim Dukhrin, the upper waters, and like the union between the upper and lower (מב), 42-Letter Names so crucial to our existence, the bonding of the two spiritual waters opens the gates of Heaven to us.

Back to final Aleph (אלף) that connects us to primordial Aleph, Binah, the one that preceded the Torah and all physically. “In that plague, 4 and 20 thousand had died.”

וַיִּהְיוּ, הַמֵּתִים בַּמַּגֵּפָה–אַרְבָּעָה וְעֶשְׂרִים, אָלֶף

Notice that first word is palindromic, ending how it begins, foreshadowing the Aleph in the end.  While the final letters of the first 3 words in the verse have a combined gematria of 611, the same as that of “Torah,” we find the two letters (במ) starting off the word for plague(במגפה), which has the same numerical value as Sinai and sulam, ladder in English, which in turn is what the lower (מב) 42-letter Name is, a ladder to the upper world.  The next word, four (ארבעה) gives us a clue in that it has the gematria of 278, which is that of “the gematria.” After the four (4), the final two words, including the kolel, have the numerical value 2019. And since aleph (אלף) is synonymous with eleph (אלף), meaning 1000 and eluph (אלף) meaning chief or head of, we should look at the final 4 digits of the first 1000 digits in Pi,  in which we had astonishingly found the digit sequence “5778” three times, and the subsequent year 2019 CE another three times.  Those last 4 digits comprised the third and last of the “2019” digit sequence. Contemplating again the exact wording of the verse, we see it could easily read “4 and 2019,” just like the full final sequence in those 1000 (אלף) digits: 42019.  And since we found it at the very end of the 107th paragraph of Numbers, we need to note that the sum of the integers from 1 – 107 is 5778.

And so we see further hints by the Torah that the period at the end of 5778 and start of 2019 is the final transformative shift, when the veils of illusion will be lifted for all to see. The final process begin, as prophesied in the Zohar and elsewhere, 70 years earlier with the birth of the nation of Israel in 1948, just like it was foretold eons ago with the three first locations within Pi (digits # 246, 703 and 996) for the sequence 2019, which with their kolel add up to 1948. This is also the year (1948 HC) of the birth of Abraham 3830 years ago, which mirrors the destruction of the Second Holy Temple in 3830 HC, may the Future Holy Temple be completed swiftly.

The Zohar, regarding Balak’s prophesy and these current days, tells us, “At the time of the revealing of Moshiach, the inhabitants of the world will find themselves in one distress after another and those who hate Israel will get stronger. Then the spirit of Messiah will stir against them, and will destroy the wicked Edom, and the entire land of Seir will go up in flames. Concerning that time, it is written: ‘And Israel shall do valiantly’ (Bamidbar 24:18). That is the meaning of: ‘And Edom shall be his possession, Seir also, his enemies,’ meaning the enemies of Israel.’…At that time, the Holy One, blessed be He, will raise the dead of His people and remove death from them.”

The Zohar also states in the same section Balak 47:501, “…are for future times, in the period of King Moshiach. We learned that the Holy One, blessed be He, will build Jerusalem and display a fixed star that sparkles with seventy moving planets and with seventy winds that display light from it in the center of the firmament. Another seventy stars will be instructed and guided by it, and it will be glowing and blazing seventy days.” B”H we will all understand this prophecy soon, though days and years are often synonymous in the Zohar and in Kabbalistic terms and this is the 70th year.

On the 4th of July this year 4 earthquakes of average 4.2 on the Richter scale struck in Israel as foretold in Psalm 18 that describes the salvation of Israel and ends with the 36 (לו) zaddikim and Moshiach Ben David. It was also foretold in this same Zohar portion, (47:504) “During the day when that star will be covered, the Holy Land will shudder and shake 45 miles around the area of the Temple…the most high saints (zaddikim) will be gathering to him. Then, Messiah will be revealed in the entire world and the kingdom will be granted to him.”

“The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry.” Psalms 18:7

We’ll get into the prophecies in the third part of this trilogy. For now, let us return to the primes. We are going to arrange the prime numbers in sequential order into a natural stacked pyramid pattern to reveal some subtly concealed symmetries.  If we were to stack the prime numbers sequentially in a pyramid, starting with 1 on top, followed by 2 and 3 on the 2nd level and 5, 7 and 11 on the 3rd level, etc we would get

If we were to add up all nine columns (ie column 1 = 1+2+5+13…151) and divide by 9, we would find that the exact average is 425.778. That is right, 42 and 5778 yet again, irrevocably embedded in primordial mathematics.  Once again, we find design in the undesignable. It also works out that the average of the first 45 primes times the number 5 = 425.778.  Oddly enough, the sum of the digits in all those primes through 193 equals 402.

The sums of each line in this prime pyramid are 1 for the first line, 5 for the second, 23 for the third, 72 for the fourth, 181 for the fifth line, 358 for the sixth line and 625 for the seventh.  We stopped counting at seven.

While we’ve discussed the significance of 23 in recent articles, and 72 could be said to connect to the 72 Names of G-d, the number 181 is not only the 42nd prime, but 181 is also the sum of the first 42 digits in the primes (2+3+5+7+1+1…)—actually through the 23rd prime—yet another allusion to the 42-Letter Name of G-d.  Continuing to the sixth and seventh lines, 358 is the numerical value of Moshiach, and 625 is not only the numerical value of H’Keter (the crown), but it is also the exact square root of the total number of words, letters and verses in the Torah, (the 5 Books of Moses).  625 is also 25 squared, since the total number of words, letters and verses in the Torah is also 25 raised to the power of 4, and this is germane to our discussion because the average of the first 25 primes is exactly 42.4, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David. Can we still think this is coincidence? By the way, the first 9 primes, the 9th being number 23, add up to exactly 100, or 25 x 4, making their average 11.111111, which is perhaps a connection to Aleph (אלף)  of numerical value 111.

Since it appears that once placed in a natural pyramidal stacking, the G-d given list of prime numbers may hold hidden significance for us, let us take a closer look.

Working our way through the list, we see that while the sum of 23 and 72 is 95, as in the value of “H’Melech (the King)” as in H’Melech Moshiach, the sum of the first four line’ sums (1, 5, 23, and 72) is 101, as in “Michael,” the protective archangel of Israel. Then we see that the line sums 72 and 181, alluding to both the 72 and 42-Letter Names of G-d as mentioned above, add up to 253, which is the sum of the integers from 1 – 22, as in the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, whose spelled out letters summed to 4248, which we have just seen being derived directly from the primes.

We have repeatedly seen how the sums of the integers is integral into the design of the Torah, starting with its first verse of 7 words and the sum of the integers from 1 -7 being 28, as in the 28 letters in those 7 words. Therefore, it is no surprise that the very next prime after the sum of the 6 th line of primes, which is 358, that of Moshiach, is 107, the 28 th prime.  What is most significant is that the sum of integers from 1 – 107 equals 5778, meaning that the 6th line, or interpretatively the 6th millennium, results in 358, Moshiach at 5778. By the way the final prime before prime # 107 is 577.

Moreover, 7 is the 4 th prime and while 7 x 4 = 28, the sum of the first 4 consecutive primes (2,3,5,7) is 17 and the sum of the sums of the 6 th and 7 th lines, 358 (Moshiach) and 625 (H’Keter) respectively, together equal (1000 – 17).  This can be seen as tying back to the 1000 digits of Pi, aleph (א) and to the millennia. The 4 th verse of the Torah states, “G-d saw that the light was good.” The gematria of Good (טוב) is 17 and that of the entire verse including a kolel of 20 for the 20 letters is (1000 – 17).  The word 20, esrim has the same numerical value as Keter.

וַיַּרְא אֱלֹהִים אֶת-הָאוֹר, כִּי-טוֹב

4 And God saw the light, that it was good

 

Perhaps it is a hint of what is to come soon as the continuation of the verse is G-d separated the light from the darkness.

 

וַיַּבְדֵּל אֱלֹהִים, בֵּין הָאוֹר וּבֵין הַחֹשֶׁךְ.

and God divided the light from the darkness.

 

Even within just this first group of primes, there are an endless stream of significant numerical equivalents derivable from the strings of consecutive primes. Here are some examples that further show a divine intent in the design of the primes, as opposed to a random naturally occurring sequence. Of course, that would not be possible without G-d. While some could argue that super intelligent aliens could create the infinitely complex Torah and that incredibly powerful and intelligent aliens could create our solar system, how could they create the infinite set of irreducible prime numbers? They could not.

  • The average for the first 77 primes is 19480, which is interesting only because Abraham, the Patriarch was born in 1948 HC and lived for 175 years, while the average of first 53 primes is exactly 110, Joseph’s age. Keep in mind that the 3 locations within the first 1000 digits of Pi (digits # 246, 703 and 996) for the sequence 2019 with their kolel add up to 1948. Moreover, we are now in the prophesied 70 th year from 1948 CE, when the state of Israel was founded, which is all the more amazing because the sum of the logarithms for the numbers 1 – 70 equals 100.0 and the 100th prime is 541, the numerical value of Israel. If you recall, following Moshiach Ben David 424 and Abraham 248 in the Primal Equation (1/.23571113… =4.24248100) is 100.

Maybe G-d wanted to send us messages where no one could mess them up, where there could be no fake news.

  • Like the 7 lines in the 42-Letter Name of G-d, the sum of the first 7 consecutive primes (1,2,3,5,7,11,13) is 42.
  • The sum of the first 9 consecutive primes (1,2,3,5,7,11,13,17, 19) is 78.
  • The sum of the second 9 consecutive primes (23,29,31,37,41,43,47,53, 59) is 363, Moshiach Ben David.
  • Thus the sum of the first 18 consecutive primes (1,2,3,5,7,11,13,17, 19, 23,29,31,37,41,43,47,53, 59) is 441, “Emet (אמת), truth.” This is like the sum of the stacked 20 cubes in the core of the Great Pyramid, whose sum (1^3 +2^3 + 3^3…20^3) equals 44,100. Once those 20 cubes were stacked they equaled 210 units (cubits) in height, which is the exact height of that pyramid, both in cubits and in its 210 This would correspond to the sum of the 8 consecutive primes (13,17,19,23,29,31,37,41), which is 210. Then the very next 6 consecutive primes (43,47,53,59,61,67) adds up to 330, the base measurement of that pyramid in cubits.  Is this also coincidence? Our civilization’s knowledge of primes was supposed to have begun 2300 years ago with Euclid; now we are pushing it back another 1200 years at least to whoever designed the Great Pyramid.
  • Emet (אמת), is the seal of truth we say after each Torah reading, so how fitting that the 15 consecutive primes that include both the height and base of Great Pyramid (13,17,19,23,29,31,37,41,43,47,53,59,61,67,71) equals 611, the numerical value of “Torah.” Also, how fitting is it that the sum of the digits in those consecutive primes is 125 or  5 cubed, which corresponds to the sum of the 3 main structural elements of the Torah, which is 5 raised to the 8th power.
  • The full first 21 primes from 1 – 71 equal 661, when the kolel of 21 is included and since Purim is the only holiday that we will celebrate after Moshiach arrives, it is fitting that that 661 is the numerical value of Ester. The primes from 1 – 21 represent the full first 6 levels of the prime pyramid, with the 6th level possibly representing the 6th millennium in the 21 st century, and definitely totaling 358, Moshiach. The sum of the digits of those first 21 primes is 144 or 12 squared.
  • 73 is the 21 st prime and the Torah’s first verse has a numerical value equal to the sum of integers from 1 – 73.
  • The final letters in the first 3 words of the Torah spell Emet (אמת) of value 441, or 21 squared, the final letters of all 7 words (from the 28 letters) of the Torah’s first verse add up to 1371, which is the total of the first 28 primes, ending appropriately enough with the number 107. Moreover, since 107 is the next prime after the sum of the 6 th line of the prime pyramid, which as we showed totals 358, the value of Moshiach, it is interesting to note that when we add 358 to 1371, we get 1729, as in the exact 1729 words of numerical value 26 in the Torah, with 26 being the all-important value of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה).
  • The average of first 91 primes starting with 1 is exactly 210, with 210 being the Israelites years in exile in Egypt and the height of the great pyramid, and the product of the first 4 primes (2,3,5,and 7) The number 91 represents the all-important union of the Tetragrammaton (יהוה), of numerical value 26 and Adonai (אדני) of numerical value 65 that we will discuss in the conclusion of this three part article when we reveal the Trinity. Speaking of trinity those 210 cubits and/or 210 levels measure 5775 inches, so add 3 to them for 5778.
  • And if we were to sum up all the integers between 26 and 65 (i.e. 27+28….63+64) they would also equal exactly 1729. Moreover, if we were to sum all the integers from 26 to 65 (i.e. 26+27+28….63+64+65) inclusive they would equal exactly 1820, the precise number of Tetragrammatons (יהוה) in the Torah. We have written about 1820 before and will touch on it again in the final article, but know that it also equals 91 x 20, the number of the stacked cubes which form the central tower that has been hidden in the center of the Great Pyramid for thousands of years.
  • The 28th prime is 107. The next to last prime before it is the 27 prime, 103, so the last two primes are 103 and 107, which total 210, alternatively 27 and 28 equals 55, the height of the entrance to the Pyramid in feet and the sum of the integers from 1 – 10, which is also the number of inches in 2 cubits, and the square root of the perimeter of the Pyramid in feet. Also, If we add the prime numbers in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th prime pyramid levels (1 + 5 + 23 + 181) we get 210 yet again.
  • The sum of the 6 consecutive primes (37,41,43,47,53,59) equals 280, the value of the five final letters in the Hebrew alphabet associated with the end-of-days.
  • There is also the sum of the 3 consecutive primes (53,59,61) that equal 173, the small gematria of the 42-Letter Name of G-d and also the 40th prime number. 173 is also the average of first 78 primes, starting with 1, while the average of first 42 primes, starting with 1, is exactly 7857.

How much clearer can G-d’s messages to us be? Well how about if He designed the Torah too so that the total gematria of the Torah divided by the value of its first verse (21009826/2701) would be 7778.536?  And how about if that total gematria of the Torah divided 3636, or (21009826/3636) worked out to 5778.28. Why 3636?  Maybe because 3636 is 36 x 101, which represents the protection of the 36 Tzaddikim and Michael (101), the protectors of Israel. Or maybe because 3636 = 2 x 1818, representing the 3 iterations of the letter Aleph (א) that R’ Azulai wrote about in L’Chesed AbrahamThese two (2) fully empowered Alephs (א) are the 2000 years and the 2000 generations found in the 18 words of the 13 Attributes of G-d, “Notzer Chesed Alefim.”

  • Adding a 4th consecutive prime (53,59,61,67) equals 240, the value of Amalek, the eternal enemy of Israel.
  • We see entwined within the prime numbers, found right at the beginning where we could not miss them, the numbers associated with G-d’s names, 72 and 42, and the value for Moshiach, 358. Then when we add the value (26) of the Tetragramamton (יהוה) they sum to 496, the numerical value of Malchut, our world, meaning Kingdom. It is the third perfect number after 6 and 28, a very small set of numbers, whose factors equal itself.
  • And even clearer is the fact that the 42nd prime, which is 181, plus the 72nd prime, which is 359, plus 1 for the kolel equals 541, Israel, the 100th prime. This is not only purposefully designed, but beautifully so, as one would imagine anything created by G-d. We can see this in that 181 is the 42nd prime, and there are 42 digits in the first 23 primes and those first 42 digits sum to
  • We touched on factorials as they applied to the Torah in The Genesis Prayer. Factorials are when all the integers up to a number are multiplied together, rather than added so it is apropos that there are 181 digits in 111! (111 factorial), connecting the sum of primes yet again to Aleph of numerical value 111. And yes, (181 – 70) is 111.
  • Whatever G-d’s plans and the designs He built into our universe the digital string “181” occurs at position 728 with the constant Pi after the 3, and Resolution 181 was adopted by the United Nations on November 29, 1947.  This resolution was designed to divide Britain’s former Palestinian mandate into two separate Jewish and Arab states by the date that the mandate was set to end.
  • And referring to the prime pyramid line sums (5,23,72,and 181), the number 181 is also the 5 th Star number, which is a centered figurate number that represents a centered hexagram in other words a six-pointed star like the Magen David. The numerical value of Israel (541) also is a Star, number, the 9 And we saw earlier how 72 and 181 summed up to form 253, the sum of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, so its interesting that 253 is also a star number, the 6th. And while 661, the numerical value of Ester discussed above is the 10th star number, the 3rd Star number is 73, representing the Torah’s first verse (2701) as the sum of the integers from 1 – 73. Incidentally, the 2nd star number id 37 and 2701 = 73 x 37.

The first star number, though, is the most important of all, 13, the numerical value of Echad (One) and Ahava, (love). With this, we wish you a Shabbat shalom. This is a concept we will develop further in the final article.  In the meantime, when you look at anything in this world look past the forgery and the fake, look past the words and works of man, and see the hand of G-d in it all.

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.

A Newly Revealed Gematria Cipher Takes Our Understanding of the Torah to a New Level

A new and very logical gematria cipher has recently been revealed and with it many amazing clues of the Torah have been deciphered. It is almost needless to say that it is only new to us, and is actually as ancient as Hebrew itself. This revelation is dedicated to the elevation of the soul of Chiel Mordechai Ben Abraham, may he study peacefully in the highest palaces. With these new revelations, more pieces of the grand puzzle of our universe fall neatly into place and heretofore-mysterious aspects of the Torah have become clear.

This gematria cipher is quite simple compared to most of them and simply uses the 5 final letters in a slightly different way. The standard gematria sofit takes into account the larger values of the special 5 final letters of the Hebrew alef-bet (C= 500, M= 600, N=700, P=800, and Z=900) for a total of 3500, while their standard values are normally counted as (C= 20, M= 40, N=50, P=80, and Z=90) for a total of 280, but since the letters represent energy and energy is never lost, another way to count them includes both values, thus treating the final shaped letters as extensions of the originals for a total of 280 + 3500 = 3780. Many of you may recognize this as 10 x 378, the numerical value of the word chashmol, the angelic cloaking that is today known as electricity, but today we’ll look straight to the heart of the Torah’s structure and leave the numerous other application of this cipher aside for now.

As usual, we turn to the seed level of the Torah to seek out wisdom, whether in the 73 faces of the Torah’s first verse or in the 32 paths of the letter Alef that preceded the Torah. The Torah (Bible’s) first verse states “In the beginning G-d created Heaven and Earth,” and the first word of this omniscient verse is

Bereshit (BREShYT), which is broken down to the prefix Bet (B) meaning “in” and REShYT meaning “Beginning.” The numerical value of REShYT is 911—yes, as in 9/11—but more germane is that utilizing the newly discovered ancient gematria, 911 represents the letter Alef. The letter Alef (ELP) is spelled out Alef-Lamed-Pe) whose numerical value is typically 1+30+80 or 111, but when we add in the 800 for the Pe sofit inclusive) we get 111 + 800 = 911, and thus the first verse of the Torah can be read as “In Alef G-d created Heaven and Earth.

We know from the tzaddikim that the letter Alef(E) is constructed of an upper letter Yud(Y), two parallel diagonal letter Vavs(V,V) and a lower letter Yud(Y), and that we can infer from this that the upper Yud created Heaven and the lower Yud created Earth in a spiritual (or energetic) sense. Moreover, we know from the Arizal that the Letter Alef also represents the numerical value of 1000, as Alef (ELP) and Elef (ELP), meaning 1000) are spelled exactly alike. So it’s surely no coincidence that the 5th word of the verse, HaSha’im (HShMYM), meaning Heaven, has a numerical value of 1000, utilizing the newly revealed gematria along with the kolel for the 5 letters: 395+600+5 letters = 1000

Likewise the new value for the 7th and final word in the verse, Earth, H’Aretz (HERZ) is 296+900+4 letters = 1200. So when we add “Heaven and Earth” together with the letter Vav(V), the prefix for “and”, we get  (HShMYM  V’HERZ) = 1000 + 1200 + 7 = 2207. This includes the kolel for each of the 10 letters in the phrase.

Now, to most people the number 2207 would be insignificant and random, but to readers of There’s Nothing Random about the Universe, the number 2207 represents 5778/phi2 or more specifically, exactly 2207.000 .

What does this mean?

First, the basics: 5778 is the Hebrew year given by Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag, and others for the geula, the final redemption; and Phi (1.61803398…) is the primordial mathematical constant that controls harmonic spiraling growth throughout our universe from the number of petals on our flowers to the shape of the Milky Way.  Moreover, since 5778.000 is exactly phi18, then the number, or year, 2207.000 is precisely two iterations of Phi away from 5778.000. Observed geometrically, 5778 is exactly 2 turns of the spiral further along the cosmic spiral of time than 2207. The number 5778 is a natural harmonic progression of 2207; therefore, the Tree-of-life reality is a natural progression of “Heaven and Earth,” and the first verse of the Torah may have been designed to show us that.

2207.000 expanded 2 Revolutions along the spiral Phi = 5778.000

Since the letter Alef represent the 32 Paths of the Tree-of-Life and the 10 letters of “Heaven and Earth) also represent the 10 sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-Life, we now see a hint that the Tree-of-life reality, which was present at the dawn of creation, will have to go through 2 more iterations (expansions) to reach the geula in 5778, which is in actuality no different than the tzaddikim have explained numerous times. After Adam, and the start of the 5778-year calendar, the next opportunity for the Tree-of-life consciousness came in 2448 at Mt Sinai, which was exactly 66.6 jubilee years before 5778, when the third cosmic opening for the Tree-of-life reality is destined to occur.

And while probably just coincidental that 22/7 = 3.1428, a close approximation of Pi (3.14159…), through simple gematria the Torah’s 1st verse of 7 words and 28 letters yields an even closer approximation, 3.14155, as explained The Genesis Prayer.  The important concept to keep in mind is the Torah as the nexus between the physical world that’s structurally guided by Phi and Pi and the spiritual world that’s guided by the Tree-of-life.

Speaking of the Tree-of-life, Etz Chaim (AZ ChYYM), its numerical value, utilizing the newly revealed gematria, is 1728 and with 1 for the kolel it equals 1729, as in the 1729 words in the Torah that have a numerical value of 26, that of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).

And as for the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), there are 1820 of them in the Torah and 1820 just happens to be the numerical value, utilizing the new gematria, of the famous verse that Hillel and other sages have said encapsulates the entire Torah, Vayikra 19:18, paraphrased as “Love they neighbor as thyself,” which is the essence of the consciousness that will lead to the Tree-of-life reality.  The number 1820 is not only 70 x 26, but it’s also the number of letters in the 28 prophetic verses of Ezekiel 37 about the “dry bones” and the geula in the end of days.

You can add 19+18 in Vayikra 19:18 and get 37 and say “wow,” but a much bigger Wow! moment comes when we compare when we apply the newly revealed gematria to the collective words in the entire Torah.

First of all, the standard gematria gives us a total value of 21009826 and while  (2+1+0+0+9+8+2+6) = 28, as in the number of letters in the Torah’s first verse, the product of those same digits is (2*1*0*0*9*8*2*6) = 1728, as in the value of Tree-of-life using the new gematria. And just to keep us honest, another deeply revealing form of gematria gives us 4(P(21009826)/ ∑(21009826)) = 4(1728/28) = 2.802828, not so dissimilar from the square root of the exact number of words in the Torah, 282.8002828, but we’ve discussed elsewhere about 28 being a core Torah concept and won’t go further with it today, except to say that 28 x 26 (YHVH) = 616, the numerical value of “The Torah,” and the number of times Moses’ name (MShH) is mentioned in the Torah.

Nevertheless, it’s when we apply the newly revealed gematria that we discover that the square root of the total gematria value (33640626) of the 304,805 letters in the Torah is 5800.0054, which is pretty astonishing considered that exact collective number of words, letters and verses in the Torah is exactly 58.

And what ties these two gematria ciphers even closer together and ties them both to the main quantitative (or structural) elements of the Torah is that while the square root of 58, the sum of the words, verses, and letters in the Torah, is 625 and 5/8 = .625, and while 625 is the numerical value of H’Keter(“The Crown”) or highest and crowning sefira (dimension), 21009826/33640626 = .625 (approximately) = 5/8.

Moreover, while the sum of the 22 spelled out Hebrew letters is 4248, it becomes 10048 when the final letters are considered in the spelling, in other words exactly 5800 more.

And in case you didn’t do the math: 5800 – 22 = 5778

Thus, it’s pretty obvious in these days of knowledge that the revelations of formerly concealed gematria ciphers are opening up whole new avenues of Torah exploration for us, and that simple names, like Abraham, whose value was 248, now take on new meaning for us as 848, or twice 424, which is the value of Moshiach Ben David.

As revealed in The Divine Calendar the Covenant of Abraham (also knows as the Covenant of Halves) occurred in 2018 HC.  And 2018 CE is the swiftly approaching Hebrew year 5778, the year dictated by the Torah’s structure, its gematria values and by the 22 letters of the Alef-bet. And in case you think this is all utter nonsense, ask yourself why then is it also the surface temperature of the Sun (5778 K). Did man create the Sun as well?

Ask yourself this as well: If G-d’s Covenant with Abraham in 2018 was known as the Covenant of Halves, what is half of 848? You already know the answer in your heart: 424, Mashiach Ben David.

We can close our minds to the depth of the Torah and its relationship to the underlying structure of the universe and G-d’s designs, or we can open them up and try to grasp the endless dimensions of the Tree-of-life reality.  Either way, it’s through the burning desire of our hearts for the truth that will draw us closer to it.

Since writing this post just a few days ago, many new ancient secrets have been revealed, which we hope to share shortly, including the 42 letters of the Tree-of-Life hidden write under our noses, and a new and very specific clarification to the Zohar’s lengthy discussions about the end-of-days (final redemption).

Ezra

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.
