The Future Holy Temple and the Human Body, Part III; We are One.

In our first article of this series we discussed how both the Celsius and Fahrenheit temperature scales aligned perfectly with the specific structural design of the Future Holy Temple and how the Kelvin scale and the surface temperature of the planets aligned with the dates given by the tzaddikim for the final redemption. Then we explored how the Temple and Torah formed and further aligned with the multi-dimensional Tree-of-life, forming hypercubes, including one with a telltale finger pointing to 314 (Pi).

We’ll go back and examine this connection to the mathematical constant Pi and the Torah and the design of the Future Holy Temple and prove that the Hebrew Alef-bet, the Ana B’koach (42-letter Name of G-d) and the Torah were constructed utilizing that primordial constant to at least 6 decimal places of accuracy in a later article in this series. Today, though, we’d like to discuss how the structure of the Future Holy Temple and the alef-bet are mimicked in our bodies.

The Human Body

The human body is composed of mostly water so the way water reacts to energy and temperature is crucial to our existence and thus it shouldn’t be so surprising that our body’s structure is analogous to the temperatures scales and thus the Temple.

Nevertheless, the body is also made up of solid substance and structurally central to that are our bones. As G-d made Man in His image, so too must the human body follow the design of the universe (Tree-of-life) in that we have 32 teeth in our mouths, 32 vertebrae in our spines and 206 bone segments in our bodies.

Please note that since the inner courtyard measures 100 cubits and the distance from the inner to the edge of the outer courtyard is 106 cubits together they measure 206 cubits.

A bone in Hebrew is “עצם”, of numerical value 200.  It also means essence. The letters are a combination of the word for Tree “עצ” and the final letter Mem(ם). The final letter Mem(ם) has four sides and it shaped like a square, like the 100 by 100 cubit courtyard and the 32 by 32 cubit Alter.

When it says that G-d created us in his own image. “בְּצֶלֶם אֱלֹקים בָּרָא אֹתוֹ” It is exactly so. Image in Hebrew, tzelem “צֶלֶם” has the same numerical value as Tree, “עץ”. It is the Tree of Life that is inside and around us, and is constructed with the 32 Paths of Wisdom.

According to the Ramchal, the Temple’s central Alter, measuring 32 by 32 cubits,  is an energy pump dispersing shefa (life-giving energy throughout he Temple and our world. By comparison, our innermost alter is our Heart, Lev in Hebrew, which likewise has a numerical value of 32.

Moreover, the heart is similarly surrounded by our bones (rib cage and spine), which is our inner courtyard, and then by our Ohr Machif, or our surrounding Light, or aura, our outer courtyard.

Depending on how we count the fused vertebra in our spine, as explained below, we either have 206 or 212 bones in our bodies. Either way, both numbers are germane to our discussion, as the number 212 is analogous to the measure of the 312 cubit wide outer courtyard less the 100 cubit square inner courtyard. And following our allusion above that would mean that our 212 bones are equal to the size of our aura.

Central Column

That said, the central column of our bodies are comprised of 54 bones, 22 of which are in the skull, corresponding to the 22 letters of the alef-bet and the 22 paths between the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-life.

The other 32 bones (vertebrae) in the spine bream down to the 3 bones of the Coccyx, the 7 of the neck, the 12 thoracic bones of the upper back and the 10 of the lumber and sacrum, split evenly 5 and 5.

Interestingly, this special distribution correspond to what Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah (Book of Formation) referred to as the 3 mother letters, the 7 double letters, and the 12 single letters that comprise the 22 in the alef-bet.  Moreover, the remaining bones correspond to the 10 sefirot, which he further describes as being split into 5 and 5.

Also, the sacrum and the coccyx are sometimes considered as one, fused to each, reducing the number of bones in the spinal column to 26, as in numerical value of the Tetragrammaton ( YHVH), which is not-coincidentally the measurement of the top of the Alter, since the central Alter narrows from 32 cubits square at its base to 26 cubits square at it’s summit.  And thus the number of bones in our spine does as well, narrowing by 6, as it ascends upward from its base (our buttocks) through the 6 bundled dimensions of Zeir Anpin toward the YHVH.

Right and Left Columns

Furthermore, while the universe and the Future Holy Temple are largely symmetrical, so too is the human body, with the upper extremities having 2 times 32 bones in them, which makes 32 on the upper right half (column) of the body and 32 on the upper left half (column) of the body. These 64 bone segments break down structurally to 54 bones in the hands and 10 in the shoulders and arms.

Once again, note the symmetry, not just with he 10 sefirot (dimensions) of the tree-of-life, but with the 54 bones of the hands with the 54 bones of the Body’s central column. And as we’ve note in previous articles this symmetry extends to the timing of our brains which ticks at 54 beats/minute and to the divine calendar which ticks at the average Biblical lifespan of 107 years of 54 spans per prophesied 5778 years from Adam to Moshaich and the geula (final redemption).

Central Alter

And the complete upper chest has 24 ribs, 1 sternum, and 1 hyoid bone for a total of 26 bones protecting the Heart (of numerical value 32), once again mimicking the central Alter of the Holy Temple, which narrows from 32 cubits at its base to 26 cubits at the summit.  And just like our chest cavities, the Alter’s internal summit platform is 24 cubits square, surrounded by 1 cubit on each side.

Our Lower Body

The lower appendages are also split into 5 and 5 for the bones of the hips and legs and 26 and 26 for the bones of the feet, which make the feet a total of 52, the numerical value for the aspect of the Tetragrammaton that is Malchut, the lowest dimension, our earthly dimension, which makes perfect sense given the relationship of the feet to the body and the feet to the earth.

Moreover, this further means that the hands and the feet together, our extremities, add up to 54 + 52 bones, or 106, which leaves 100 more centralized bones, once again maintaining the mimicking of the Holy Temple whose outer courtyard measures 106 cubits further on each side than the inner courtyard of 100 cubits square.

The Aura and Outer Courtyard

As we said, the the 4 sides of the Outer Courtyard that lie beyond the confines of the concentric Inner Courtyard, measuring 106 cubits each side, correspond to our aura (our surrounding light). This Ohr machief is our potential light, and those 4 sides add up to 4 x 106, or 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David.

The Flow of the Shefa (Life-Force).

So, in summary, the central skeleton of the human body, is divided into three columns of 32, with both chest/heart and the spinal column being analogous to the Holy Temple’s central Alter. And all of them reflect the 32 Paths and 3 column structure of the Tree-of-life.  Moreover, we thus see hints of a 3-dimensional cube of measuring  32 x 32 x 32.

The body can also be defined as an outer and inner structure, comprised of 106 and 100 bones respective just like the outer and inner courtyards of the Holy Temple.

And while, no one would call our bones the gateways to our bodies, they do support them like scaffolding to a building.  And as the shefa (life force) flows through the Holy of Holys in the Future Temple and through the sefirot (dimensions) to all the creatures of our world, it passes first through the gate of 42 that’s 6 cubits high by 7 wide, then out through the Gate of the Temple, then the Gate of the Inner Courtyard, and then the Gate of the Outer Courtyard, before finally filling the Gate of the Temple Mount, each of which is 50 cubits tall. The collective height of the 4 Temple Mount Gates plus the height of the Holy of Holy Gate totals 206 cubit, reminiscent of the 206 bones in out bodies that give us our height.

Dry Bones and Final Redemption

Even the word for cubit, Emah (EMH) when spelled out (ELP-MM-HY) has the numerical value 206, for this is how we measure man.  And when the letters are permuted, they spell Meah (MEH) the Hebrew word for “100,” our inner measure.

As it says in Devarim 20:19, “…a person is a tree of the field…” And so it is supposed to be, according to the tzaddikim, in 2019, we will once again be as the Tree-of-Life, with our alters in tune with the harmony of the universe’s 10 dimensions.

But before we get to that, let’s note that 312, the measure of the full outer courtyard, is the numerical value of the Hebrew word yavesh, meaning dry, as in the dry bones of Ezekiel 37:1-28, the verses that speak of the geula (final redemption) when the spirit of G-d reanimates and brings to life the dry bones.

The word Ezekiel uses for bones, Atzmot has a numerical value of 606, the same as the collective height of the 13 Gates (12 x 50 + 6) of the Holy Temple.

Let’s let the shefa enter our bodies and bones, may it flow through the Gates of the Future Holy Temple soon. The Temple stands ready, built for us in spiritual form, hovering over Jerusalem, waiting as the waters of the Sea of Reeds waited for their moment, waiting for unity amongst the people, waiting for Moses and his staff engraved with the Name of 42 and the Name of 72, waiting for us.

Ezekiel 37:1-28

The following are the most pertinent of the dry bones prophecy of Ezekiel to the above article:

Ezekiel 37:1. The hand of the Lord came upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley, and that was full of bones.

Ezekiel 37: 2. And He made me pass by them round about, and lo! they were exceedingly many on the surface of the valley, and lo! they were exceedingly dry.

Ezekiel 37: 4. And He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.’

Ezekiel 37: 5. So says the Lord God to these bones; Behold, I will cause spirit to enter into you, and you shall live .

Ezekiel 37: 9. Then He said to me, “Prophesy to the spirit, prophesy, O son of man, and say to the spirit, ‘So says the Lord God: From four sides come, O spirit, and breathe into these slain ones that they may live.’ ”

Ezekiel 37: 10. And I prophesied as He had commanded me, and the spirit came into them, and they lived and stood on their feet, a very great army, exceedingly so.

Ezekiel 37: 11. Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are all the house of Israel.

Ezekiel 37: 21. And say to them, So says the Lord God: Behold I will take the children of Israel from among the nations where they have gone, and I will gather them from every side, and I will bring them to their land.

Ezekiel 37: 26. And I will form a covenant of peace for them, an everlasting covenant shall be with them; and I will establish them and I will multiply them, and I will place My Sanctuary in their midst forever.

Ezekiel 37: 28. And the nations shall know that I am the Lord, Who sanctifies Israel, when My Sanctuary is in their midst forever.”

The Real 5 Books of the Torah: Dimensions Beyond.

There are 5 Books of the Torah as we see them laid out in the scroll before us, 2 dimensionally, and even if we study its secrets and read the Rabbis’ different interpretations, there are still only 5 Books divided into a stream of words, but that’s because we’re only looking at them from our limited point-of-view, stuck in Malchut.  There is another way of viewing them that will expand our consciousness and raise us into the Tree-of-life.

This is Wisdom for those that understand. The Arizal in his commentary on portion Terumah, said that the Torah was at the level of Yesod of Abba, which is Chochma, which is also the Yud in the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).  We’ve read elsewhere and also from the Ari himself that the Torah is at the level of Zeir Anpin (the bundle of 6 sefirot/dimensions from Heaven to Earth), and also that it’s at the level of Binah, so what gives?

What gives is our limited perspective. They are all right.

In the Arizal’s pregnant statement that the Torah was at the level of Yesod of Abba, we can see that there are about 80,000 words in the Torah and then knowing that 80 is the numerical value of Yesod(YSVD) and that the 5 digits in 80,000 reflect 10x10x10x10 or 104 we have clues to understanding the Ari’s statement.

First we must understand that there are 5 main levels of the sefirot corresponding to the 5 worlds and the 5 parts of the YHVH.

5 Main Dimensions

5: Keter (tip of the Yud)

4: Chochma or Abba (Father) Yud

3: Binah or Imma (Mother) Hey

2: Zeir Anpin (Vav)

1: Malchut (final Hey)

Then we can see that 5-digit numbers are at the level of 104, as shown above, and thus they are at the 4th level, which as the Arizal said, is Abba (Chochma).

We can thus understand from the Ari’s statement that the words of the Torah are at level of Yesod of Abba (Chochma). Yesod is the point (funnel) where the light flows into the next lowest sefira, in this case Binah or Imma.

And the pseudo-sexual reference to flowing into Imma from Abba is not coincidental as this analogy is as best we can understand it  and Yesod is indeed associated with the sexual organs for this very reason. In fact, one of the reasons that there are 79,976 words in the Torah and not 80,000 exactly is that 24 of them, or .03% were removed in a spiritual circumcision of sorts, since a proper circumcision (brit milah) is done is 3 parts: a) cutting away the foreskin, b) Revealing the glans, and c) Extracting the blood from the wound.

Letters

Now, there are 600,000 letters in the Torah. Actually there are (600,000 -408) component letters of the 304,805 full letters in the Torah, as we’ve explained in previous articles, but the sages use the 600,000 figure, corresponding to the 600,000 Israelites at Sinai.

The numerical value of the letter Vav is 6, and 60% of the verses in the Torah begin with the letter Vav. And if those 408 missing letters were Vav’s, their value would be 2448, the year the Torah was revealed at Sinai, which would be .408% of 600,000.

Nevertheless, 6 is representative of Zeir Anpin.  And 6 digits is at a higher level that the 5 digits of Abba (Chochma), and thus would be at the highest level of Keter. Thus the 600,000 letters of the Torah are similarly at Zeir Anpin of Keter.

5: Letters: Zeir Anpin of Keter

4: Words: Yesod of Chochma

How are we to understand this? When we look at the Torah we see letters grouped into words, but this is like seeing the various components of light already assembled together: the blue wavelength, red, infra-red, ultra-violet etc. Or seeing matter already formed with electrons, protons, neutrons. It’s all been put together to make it easy for us for us to comprehend the universe, but in the end all we see is the limited malchut world of illusion, a reflection of the truth instead of the Tree-of-life reality beyond limitations.

Any scientist will tell you that the atoms are 99.9% empty space, so how come we can’t see or pass right through them? A better question might be, who said we can’t?

In actuality, the letters and words exists on separate planes of existence, which is why gematria can analyze them separately and add to the whole, rather than detract from it, and it’s also why Rav Abraham Abulafia of blessed memory said Gematria is the highest form of Torah understanding.

Verses

As for the 5845 verses of Torah, they are 155 less than 6000 and 67 more than 5778, the year prophesied by Rav Ashlag, etc for the final redemption (geula) and the 3rd opening of the Tree-of-life reality in our world. While the 4 digits indicate the world of Binah (Imma) one dimension beneath Chochma (Abba), 6 again signifies the 6 dimensions of Zeir Anpin, and 67 is he numerical value of Binah (Imma), reiterating that connection.  And 155/6000 is .26%, with 26 being the numerical value of the YHVH, which on a whole is Zeir Anpin.

Therefore the verses of the Torah are in the dimension of Zeir Anpin of Imma (Binah).

5: Letters: Zeir Anpin of Keter

4: Words: Yesod of Chochma

3: Verses: Zeir Anpin of Binah

Taken together all 3 elements in their separate superimposed dimensions (Letters, Words, and Verses) add up to exactly 58, 5 raised to the 8th power. Now that’s perfection not attainable from our limited perspective.

Nevertheless, There are two more major Torah elements, the 670 paragraphs and the 187 Chapters.

The 3 digits of the 670 paragraphs represent Da’at, the triple balancing point, or reservoir of knowledge between Chochma and Binah, and the place from where Zeir Anpin draws its shefa (life-force). And once again 67 is the numerical value of Binah; therefore the 670 paragraphs are in the dimension of Binah of Da’at, which is the level where Moses drew his energy and wisdom.

The 5th element, 187 chapters, breaks down to 120 + 67 with 67 once again being the numerical value of Binah, and 12o being the length of our generations, those from Moses on, for as the Torah says in Genesis 6:3 “God said, ‘My spirit will not continue to judge man forever, since he is nothing but flesh. His days shall be 120‘.”

In the 5th chapter, just prior to that, the 8th man (generation) in the lineage of Adam, Methuselah lived 187 before begetting Lemekh (LMC), whose name is a permutation for King(MLC), and whose life and lifespan hint to 5778. (See our post on Abraham and Jupiter.)

There are 26 generations delineated in the Torah, and they averaged 91 years each.  Then from Moses (the 26th generation) on, we and according to chazal, he, lived 120 years each generation. This gives us an average of exactly 107 years over 54 generations to 5778, since 5778 = 54 x 107.

Now the 67 chapters represent 35.8% of 187, and 358 is the numerical value of Moshiach, the Messiah, who is to be manifest in 5778 (2018 CE).

All that said, the 2 digits of  the 67 chapters are on the level of Zeir Anpin and 67 is Binah. Meanwhile the Arizal tells us that 120 represents the 120 permutations of the 5 letters in Elohim (ELHYM), the Name of G-d at the level of Malchut. Therefore, the 187 chapters stretch from Binah to Malchut, which is Zeir Anpin .

Thus the 5 dimensions of the Torah:

5:Letters: Zeir Anpin of Keter

4:Words: Yesod of Chochma

3:Verses: Zeir Anpin of Binah

2:Paragraphs: Binah of Da’at

1:Chapters: Zeir Anpin

And when we read he Torah, the table it sits on is Malchut, where we then see all 5 dimensions all together as One: Keter, Chochma, Binah, Da’at and Zeir Anpin brought down to our level.

Did you notice that the smaller the individual Torah element (the individual letters being the smallest and the chapters the greatest) the higher the sefirot (dimension) it connects to. It’s just like the tip of Yud in the YHVH. The adage less is more is very ancient.

5778(2018 CE) is almost here, isn’t it time we rise up to the Torah’s level and see its infinite multi-dimensional beauty.

When we are in sync with the luminous 5 dimensions of the Torah we are in another state of mind and being.  We go from viewing the world as 3-dimensional objects and 2-dimensional words on vellum to viewing it as a 4-dimensional hypercubes (Tesseracts). These have 32 edges, just like the 32 Paths of Wisdom that form the Tree-of-life, all of them connecting various wondrous gateways of limitlessness.

Moreover, those 80,000 words in Yesod of Chochma are divided into exactly 1024 word values, which is precisely 32 x 32, thus expanding the Torah’s dimensionality even further into a full 5-dimensional hypercube or Penteract. It has 32 vertices and 80 edges and 80 faces. The Zohar and sages of blessed memory say the Torah has 70 faces, and with the 10 sefirot there are 80, completing its 5th dimensionality.

The image is a little hard to fathom, but it’s only a projection, nothing like being able to access those dimensions.  everything we see in our world is nothing more than illusory projections of higher dimensions on the walls we’ve built up around us, and on the ceiling we’ve built for ourselves.

If you were to shine a flashlight above a cube onto the wall, you’d see a square. That’s what we’ve done to ourselves, accepted the square as the end-all.

And with 248 columns and 42 rows per column we add two more dimensions to the Torah dimensionality, two more aspects of Zeir Anpin, which when added to the words, letters, and verses in the Torah give us a total of 401273 Torah elements, which work out to exactly 248,000 X Phi, the primordial mathematical constant of value 1.61803399… that controls the natural spiraling growth in the universe, from the petals on a flower to the arms of the Milky Way.

And while 248 is the numerical value of the Hebrew word for mercy, Abraham, and while 2480 is the numerical value of the Names of all 5 Books of the Torah, when you start from One and spiral outward 18 times, or Phi18, we get exactly 5778.000. And by the way the square root of 18 is 4.2426 or 424, Moshiach Ben David with 26, YHVH. Just step outside the square.

Isn’t it time we explored the Torah’s higher dimensionality. Isn’t it time we left the world of limitation, Malchut behind, and prepared for the Tree-of-life reality.

All My Teachers

The portion of Ekev starts off with “If only you listen..” The first word Vhayah (VHYH) is an obvious permutation of the Tetragrammaton YHVH, and the second word Ekev of numerical value 172 is the also the word for heel, which the sages equate with the heel of Adam, which is what they say our generation is, the lowest of them all spiritually. Yet 172 is only 1 away from 173, the small gematria value of the 42-Letter Name of G-d, which was the seed of all Creation.

So as lowly as we are, we are closer than any previous generation (except the one at Mt. Sinai that blew their opportunity) to returning to Creation and the Tree-of-Life reality.

So, yes, if only we listen.

Devarim 7:13 “He will [1] love you, [2] bless you, and [3] make you numerous. He will [4] bless the fruit of your womb, [5] the fruit of your land, [6] your grain, [7] your wine, [8] your oil, [9] the calves of your herds, and [10] the lambs of your flocks…”

In the very next verse, Devarim 7:13, we are given 10 blessings, split into the upper 3 and then the 7 lower ones, just like the 3 and 7 structures of the Tree-of-Life.  Once again, Moses is trying to strengthen our connection to the Tree-of-Life and show us the blessings that will come from it—if only we’d listen.

To that end we need to start listening with our hearts. The numerical value of heart, lev (LB) in Hebrew, is 32 and all 32 Paths of Wisdom flow through the heart.  The only truth is actually found in our hearts, no matter how great a wisdom we find in our heads.

Why then is there so much wisdom revealed through the Torah, because the Torah is the heart. It begins with the letter bet (B) and ends with the letter lamed (L), or lev (LB) backwards. It is a channel to and though our own hearts.

But the Torah cannot do it for us. We must speak to the world through our hearts and listen to it through our hearts.  A secret that should not be as deep as it is, is that abundance flows through the heart. If you are not living up to your potential and most of us are not, it is not because we aren’t working hard or smart enough, it is because we are speaking with our mouths and not our hearts.

Our hearts are the gatekeepers of what we project. You can have it all thought out and say all the right things, but people hear only what’s being silently projected from your heart.

For many of us it is a very difficult thing to wrap ourselves around, because we’ve long ago centered our hearts in our heads and though we know we love someone or care about them and may show it (at least in our minds, but also demonstratively) other people can’t see it, hear it or feel it, because those hearts in our heads are illusions (virtual hearts); the real ones in our chests are sitting there silently, snoozing, waiting to be called upon.  And when we do, they will open the gates for us, and people will begin to hear us, some for the first time. The universe will hear us to.

And once that gate is open, it swings both ways, and we can then start to actually receive.

So now that we know the channel through which G-d gives to us—through our hearts—it’s obvious that no matter how hard we try in life, and how many times we plead with G-d to help us, with or without the proper spiritual tools, He can’t if our hearts are closed.

How do we know if they’re closed? Believe me, you know when they are open: you see things totally differently, with joy; you see people as opportunities to help and share with; you see people reacting positively to you; you hear the messages clearly without veils; you see your own garbage (blockages) and you see how to rid them; and you see things flowing freely and working out for you.

We get messages all day long, but when we open our hearts, they come to us from the right place and we can hear them clearer, which means everyone becomes our teacher and we have the chance to learn and grow all day long.

Our minds can only get us so far.  Sure, without them, without our intellectual prowess and curiosity we’d still be asleep within the world of illusion and never be in the position to recognize that there was a Tree-of-Life reality out there, waiting to welcome us. But to reach it, to take us the rest of the way in the final years, we’ll need our hearts. Sure, there are 10 sefirot within the Tree-of-Life, but there are 32 paths between them, and the only way to climb them is along the paths.

You have often heard me quote Hillel in our articles, how it and the Torah all boils down to one verse, Vayikra 19:18, “You must love your neighbor as yourself. I am God.” Pretty simple, right? So how come so few of us live like that?
If it had only said, “As you love your neighbor, you will be loved,” things would be different because we understand cause and effect.  That’s something the head can grasp easily.  Loving thy neighbor—that’s thinking with the heart.

If does mean “As you love your neighbor, you will be loved,” and what you give from your heart will come back to you, and what you don’t give will also come back to you; and what you do unto others, will be done to you, it’s true, and if we live our lives knowing that and acting accordingly we’ll have much better lives, but G-d didn’t want it to be so easy.

He didn’t want it to be so hard either—He didn’t want it to be hard at all—but He wanted us to grasp the concept in our hearts, not our heads.  So the secret is out: start living your life knowing that “As you love your neighbor, you will be loved,” but don’t forget to start channeling everything through your heart, the one in your chest.

Though it’s easier than you think, it takes a lot of effort to shift our mindsets from our heads to our hearts, but we must do it and we must help one another to—it’s our responsibility. Write in with your comments and/or contact me on facebook if you want help, or want to help me. We are all each other’s teachers and all part of the same soul, that of the heel of Adam.
