Science and Theology are One; Secrets of the Future Holy Temple

In our last article we discussed how both the Celsius and Fahrenheit temperature scales aligned perfectly with the specific structural design of the Future Holy Temple as laid out by Ezekiel thousands of years ago, and moreover how the Kelvin scale and the surface temperature of the planets aligned with the dates given by the tzaddikim for the final redemption.

Given that, and returning the the freezing point of water, 32 degrees Fahrenheit, we see that the major structural dimensions of the Future Holy Temple centers redundantly and concentrically on the 32 Paths of Wisdom that comprise the Tree-of-life.

As we lay out this structure for you in a 2-dimensional grid, please note that the Temple, like the Tree-of-Life, is multi- dimensional and should always be viewed that way, staring with the fact that 32 is 25, and that 32 represents the 32 edges (paths) of what is called in mathematics a 4-dimensional hypercube.

Though our modern physicists, by and large, agree with the ancient Kabbalists that the greater universe is constructed in 10 dimensions, we cannot even fathom , except mathematically, how a 4-D cube, or indeed any object would actually look.  Nevertheless, in the same way that a 3-D cube casts a 2-D shadow on our desk, a 4-D hypercube does the same in our 3-D world.  It’s by these shadows, much like Plato’s cave, that we can glimpse and maybe grasp that upper dimension.

The following illustrations are just such shadows of 4-D hypercubes on our world, and the reason we need to perceive them before getting back to the temperature scales will be clear in a moment, but keep in mind that it’s only because of light that we have shadows and thus perception in the first place.

One of the shapes that a 3-D cube casts on a flat 2-D page is a square, another is a hexagon, and likewise one of the shadows cast by our 4-D hypercube on our 3-D world is a cube itself (if you follow the outlines in the blue image). Others, include the tesseract, as in the image above (a cube within a cube), and also the double stacked cubes, which once turned on its axis, forms the exact Tree-of-Life depiction kabbalists have been elaborating on for thousands of years.

Since we have a difficult time imagining hyperspace or multiple dimensions, lets look at the simplest schematic of the Future Holy Temple’s layout, which has an outer courtyard that measures 312 x 312 cubits square, an inner courtyard centered within it that measures 100 x 100 cubits square and the Alter within that that measures 32 x 32 cubits square. There is, of course, the Holy of Holies, measuring 100 x 100 x 100, a perfect cube of 100 cubits per side that sits off to the side,  and also numerous other significant structures, but today we are concerned only with the precisely centered concentric ones.

These shadows on our world form another shape: a truncated pyramid, just like Joseph’s Pyramid that we’ve been analyzing in conjunction with the Future Holy Temple. Picture, if you will, the 32 cubit square, flat-topped Alter, widening first to 100 cubits square then to 312 cubits square

The three temperature scales align such that 0 Kelvin = -273.16 degrees Celsius, and 0 degrees Celsius = 32 degrees Fahrenheit = 273.16 Kelvins, and 273.16 = half of 546.32. Thus from 0 Kelvin to 32 degrees Fahrenheit, there are 546.32 degrees Kelvin.

This is most interesting because the number 546 is the sum of the initials of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) along the 32 Paths of the Tree-of-life.  Thus, to the kabbalists, the temperature, which after all only measures energy transference, is analogous to the Tree-of-Life.  Furthermore, 273 is thus the Tree-of-Life cleaved down the middle as described by Abraham 3700 hundred years ago in his Sefer Yetzirah, The Book of Formation.

The energetic connection between 32 and 100 goes deeper than the results on our thermometer. According to the ancient science of gematria, each of the Hebrew letters has a numerical value representing its underlying energy and when the letters spell out a word they impart their combined energy to that word and its meaning. As is well know, the Torah begins and ends with the letter Bet and Lamed, which in gematria have the numerical value together (2 +30) of 32, and 32 squared, the area of the central Alter of the Holy Temple is 1024, or in scientific notation 210, which just happens to be the exact number of different word values in the Torah, 1024.

Now, what makes this especially telling is that a hypercube in the 10th dimension, as in the 10 dimensions that most of our modern physicists believe the universe to be made up of, and as in the 10 dimensions of the tree-of-life that our ancient sages and kabbalists believe the universe to be made up of, has 1024 vertices or points (corners). So one could view (if we had such extraordinary vision) the Torah as a matrix designed in 10 dimensional space, forming a hypercube whereby each point represented a different word value of the Torah.

Now, a little more down to earth is, as we just said, the first and last letters of the Torah, Bet and Lamed, have a numerical value of 32, but they also carry an ordinal value of 14, making their complete value 46, which is that of the Hebrew word for cubit, Amah (EMH) as in the 32 cubits of the Alter.  Moreover, the letters in Amah (EMH) can be rearranged to spell Me’ah (MEH), also of numerical 46, which is the Hebrew word for 100, so both cubit and 100 occupy the same vertex (point) on that 10-D hypercube and both connect directly to the point occupied by the number 32.

Now, since envisioning this in a flat two dimensions would be shortsighted, and one of the secrets of the structure of the Future Holy Temple, is revealed by adding the 3 concentric central components of the Temple together. The base measure of the Alter cubed, 323 plus the measurement of the Inner Courtyard cubed, 1003 plus the Outer Courtyard cubed, 3123 = 31404096, which is precisely 31400000 plus 4 x 322, or 4 times the number of word values in the Torah, and thus in scientific notation 212.

The number 314 is quickly recognizable as the mathematical constant PI, but also the numerical value of the Name of G-d Shadai (ShDY) found on every mazuza, and it is also that of the Archangel Metatron, guardian of knowledge. And when you connect this intrinsic cosmic design to the proper  sequence of Holy Names, you have the flow of the Divine Life Force (the Shefa) that sustains all existence.

Moreover, 312 is just 1 of the 1024 word values in the Torah, but individual words with the value 312 are found 128 times in the Torah and that is 32 x 4 times—probably not a coincidence, right?  Also, the 312th word value in the Torah is 314, also found 128 or 4 x 32 times in the Torah.

The Torah and divine structure of the universe is nothing if not awe-inspiring.  And the Future Holy Temple will be our bridge between the Tree-of-Life and our limited world of illusions.

The 7th and 8th Torah Portions Reveal the Truth

The 10 paragraphs and 10 chapters of VaYetze and VaYishlach, the 7th and 8th portions of the 54 portions of the Torah respectively, aren’t usually linked together beyond the sequential story of Jacob that they are telling. Nevertheless, on deeper reflection, they are bound together and have deep implications about the final redemption (geula), prophesied by the tzaddikim to occur in 5777.78 – 5778 (2018 CE).

Vayetze, of numerical value 107, begins with the verse “Jacob left Beer-Sheba and heded toward Charan. Innocuous enough, until we examine the Hebrew (VYTzE YAKB MBER ShBA VYLC ChRNH). We know from chazal that the final letters point towards the future, and while the first four of them (EBRA: VYTzE YAKB MBER ShBA VYLC ChRNH) add up to 273, the numerical value of “gematria” and thus pointing out the tool we should be using, all the final letters (EBRACH: VYTzE YAKB MBER ShBA VYLC ChRNH) add up to 778, as in 5778.

Now, this could very well be coincidence, if the numerical value of Vayetz (VYTzE) itself wasn’t 107 and if 5778 wasn’t the 107th triangular number, meaning that all the positive integers through 107 sum up to 5778.

Now, before we examine the letters themselves and delve into the hidden meaning of the verse, lets further note, that the value 107 comes up again significantly later in the portion. The portion begins with Jacob erecting pillar to G-d and it ends after he establishes (solidifies) the 7 dimensions (sefirot) of Zeir Anpin and Malchut through his union with Leach and Rachel with him erecting another one at/called “Geled,” of numerical value 107. BTW, 54 x 107 = 5778.

By erecting these pillars, Jacob was not only establishing the tree-of-life reality, but creating a bridge for us to follow to that divine reality beyond illusion and to the opportunity that approaches in 5778 (2018 ce).

If we look at the letters in the verse themselves, we see the first 3 (EBR) final letters are the first 3 of the Torah as well (BRE) meaning “to create”, They are also not coincidentally the first 3 in Abraham (EBRHM). So are we look past “Jacob Left” we first find the MB (Mem-Bet), as in the Shem Mem-Bet or 42-Letter Name of G-d, combination that is always associated in the Torah and Kabbalah with journeying, which leads off the phrase “Beer Sheba (MBER ShBA), the place named by Abraham and Isaac that translates as 7th Well.

If we rearrange the letters to find the deeper meaning we get MB BRE ShBA or 42 created 7, as in the 42 Letters created the 7 dimensions, alternatively rearranging them as MBSh BRE A, the 42-Letter Name created 70, as in the 7 dimensions expanded by the 10 subsefirot, as explained by the Zohar and the Arizal.

Before we move on and link Vayetze with Vayishlach, it’s notable that Beer Sheva is today the 7th largest city in Israel, and that in Tishrei, the 7th month, 70 years before 5778, Beer Sheva was conquered from the Egyptians by the IDF of the fledgling Israeli nation (1948 ce).

So with scene set, lets examine the joint 7th and 8th Torah portions. The final word of Vayetze in Machanaim (MChNYM) of numerical value 708, which happens to be the numerical value of the upper 42-Letters of the Name of G-d. And as pointed out by Rav Brandwein, when the two 42-Letter Names are linked as one, we get 84 (PaD), redemption, which is all the more relevant since the name Machanaim (MChNYM) means twin camps. The Ramban says that this is Jacob’s camp and the divine camp and since Jacob represents Zeir Anpin, defined by the lower 42-Letter Name, and the Upper 42-Letter Name could easily be the divine camp, we do indeed have the two twin 42-Letter camps.

If we follow the narrative of the Torah, we see that Jacob just left Galed, which we connected to 5778, and encountered angels, which was when he realized the Twin Names were as one, and the process of redemption was at hand. We have also just entered the 32nd chapter of the Torah, which connects us to the 32 Paths of Wisdom that comprise the Tree-of-Life, the unification of the Names.

That was all in the 63rd Paragraph or the Torah, or 70-7, where Jacob had to work for 7 years for Leah, 7 again for Rachel and 7 yet again in total. We turn to Vayishlach, whose first word, Vayishlach (VYShLCh) with the kolel for the 5 letters has the numerical value 359, that of Satan.

The lineage of the Patriarchs, not only defines the structure of the tree-of-life, but delineates a cleansing process, whereby the holy sparks of life were separated from the inherent evil inclinations with each generation. Ishmael was born first and received the brunt of any negativity Abraham had to pass on. Esau was born first and likewise received most of the negativity that Isaac had to pass on, which set up the dynamic of good vs evil between the two brothers Jacob and Esau.

The connection to Satan (evil-inclination) is followed by Jacob’s name (YAKB) of numerical value 182, and by the word malachim (messengers or angels): Jacob sent messengers. The deeper secret is that Jacob sent angles to check on Esau, not actual people as messengers, but the even deeper secret is that the first 5 letters in the word malchim (MLECYM) spell out the word Michael, as in the archangel Michael, the protector of Israel.

A little later in this same chapter Jacob will wrestle with and conquer a powerful angel, who will change his name to Israel, or numerical value 541. The Zohar tells us this was a negative angel, Samuel, also know as Satan, but other chazal say it may have been Michael. It would appear the first words of the portion set up that Dynamic: Satan Jacob Michael, and when we look even closer at the gematria we see 359, 182, and Michael (101). If you then add 359 + 182, you’ll get 541, Israel, insinuating that the new Jacob conquered Satan, and became Israel.

If we combine the final letter message of the first verse of Vayetze with the full 3 word message of the first verse of Vayishlach, we get (778 + 1242 – 2 (kolel of the 2 verses)) = 2018, the Year of the Covenant of Abraham, and when using the Western calendar, the year 2018 CE, or 5778 HC, 70 years after Israel became a nation and the Covenant began to be fulfilled.

A Hidden Equation

Keter (CTR), the crowning sefirot, can be expressed as its numerical gematria value of 620, or as 100, or even as 1000 depending on the circumstances. And in these combined two portions 10 chapters and/or 10 paragraphs) we have 100 letter Zayins of numerical value 7; 620 letter Ayins of numerical value 70 each; and 273 Nun sofits of numerical value 700 each. While the value of these 3 letters is 777, the number of these 3 letters is (100 + 620 + 273) = 993 = (1000 – 7), giving us an equation that balanced the ultimate Divine, Keter, with our spiritual path (ladder) from Earth to Heaven.

Flash Forward to Today

There is so much hidden and revealed in these two portions and many books have been written about them so we won’t duplicate that here. One point we do want to emphasize is the connection between Esau and Edom, which the Zohar often refers to as Rome and connects with the “end-of-days” as we know them, the final redemption. To begin with Ishmael is the father of the Islam world; Esau is the father of Edom, the Christian world; and Jacob is the father of the Israeli (Jewish world), all under Abraham. If you recall from our articles on the Washington Monument, Washington, the new center of Edom (the Christian World) is the United States, whose capital is Washington D.C..

We also explained that the original name for Washington was Rome (Rome on the Potomac) and that the Zohar insists Rome will lead the final and losing assault against the rising Moshiach consciousness that will bring about the Final Redemption. We further went into detail explaining the encoding of the Washington Monument, whose height is 555 ft, but now we can tie it into the portion that tells us Esau is father of Edom and hat lays out not only all his descendants, but according to the Zohar and the Arizal, the entire structure of the evil tree-of-life, the anti-tree-of-life if you will, prescribed by 8 Kings that preceded Israel.

After sending angels and engaging the help of Michael, Jacob gives a tribute to Esau of 555 animals, when the kolel of 5 is included for the 5 animal species (Goats, Sheep, Camels, Cows, and Donkeys). Every year a sacrificial goat is given over to Satan, the “scape-goat” to appease him and draw off the Israeli sins, and this gift to Esau appears to be no different.

So, let’s take a step back and review the connection.  Jacob spent the last portion of the Torah raising pillars (alters) to G-d. Now, he gives a sacrifice to Edom of 555 animals. Flash forward about 3430 years and the Masons erected a pillar in the Capital of Edom for the country to rally around that is 555 feet high.  Is this just a coincidence?

What’s the connection?

Shabbat Shalom and Happy Thanksgiving! We all have a lot to be thankful for. It’s only through the appreciation of what we have that we can receive more.
