What’s the Secret Behind the Torah’s Numbers and Bible’s Divine Timeline? Logarithms.

There is a saying that you find what you look for? Such as the number 42, as in the 42-Letter Name of G-d. I see it in news reports everywhere and it keeps coming up for me. This could be because I’m hyper-sensitive to that number having written a book about that particular Name (The Genesis Prayer), or that I’m sending out energetic inquiries about it into the universe, or the collective consciousness as some would call it, or as some scientists would speculate, that I’m filtering out all else. Maybe it’s a little of everything.

Another example is my conviction in the date 5778 (2018 CE) because that was the date given by the tzaddikim for the geula, final redemption.  Again, I’ve written books about it and have found extensive proof of it within the context of the Torah and modern mathematics and physics, but then some skeptics would say that I would have done the same with the year 6329 or 2012 (though, I never found much to collaborate the end-of-the world thesis based on the Mayan calendar) had those been given to me.

So let’s take some of the key historic Biblical calendar dates, as The Divine Calendarillustrated in The Divine Calendar, such as 3760(0 ce), the pivotal beginning of the Gregorian (Western/Christian calendar);  -422 BCE (3338 HC), the fall of the First Holy Temple; 3830 (70 CE), the fall of the Second Holy Temple; and 5778 (2018 ce), the date prophesied for the manifestation of the tree-of-life reality, with its mirror date of 2018 HC, when G-d made His Covenant with Abraham, promising that final redemption.

Given those dates, and that the Exodus from Egypt and 10 Commandments were received in 2448 HC, exactly 66.6 jubilee years before 5778, how would the skeptics explain that the logarithm of the number of Israelites that received those 10 Commandments, (600,000 as per the Torah) is exactly 5.778151.

The number 151 is the numerical value of the Name of God, Ehyeh, the “I am” in the “I am that I am,” but that’s besides the point.

That said, how would they further explain that the logarithm of the year 5760 (2000 ce) is 3.760422, which is exactly 2000 years earlier (5760-3760 = 2000). As explained in The Divine Calendar , this special date of 3760 HC is what makes the two calendars so symmetrical with even Abraham’s birth in 1948 HC coinciding with Israel’s birth in 1948 CE, and if you recall, 3760 – 422 = 3338, the date of the destruction of the First Holy Temple.

And while they’re explaining that away as coincidence, let them tell you how the square root of 3338 being 57.78 is also meaningless.  And perhaps had they had computers and advanced mathematics 3330 years ago, maybe it would be meaningless, but would they also have known that the surface temperature of the Sun was also exactly 5778 K?

Of course, years are nothing more that the earth’s trips 365-day trips around the Sun, matching the 365 positive mitzvot (precepts)  in the Torah and the sum of all the integer logs through 365 is 778.39.

And as for the date of the destruction of the Second Holy Temple, 3830 HC, the logarithm of 3830 is 3.5832 with the 358 being the gematria (numerical value) of Moshiach (messiah), which may or may not mean anything, but we thought we’d throw it out there.

Nevertheless, we do have a clue that the Torah did indeed take logarithms in consideration of its creation, because the logarithm of the numerical value (913) of the first word (Bereshit, “In the Beginning”) of the first verse of the Torah is 2.960 and the numerical value of the last word (H’aretz, earth) of that verse is 296.

And speaking of verses, there are 5845 of them in the Torah and the sum of the logs of all the integers though 5845 is 19480.68… and 5845/1948 is nearly exactly 3.000.

It was the kabbalists, who first wrote about the 10 dimensions of the universe, the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-life thousands of years ago, and today most physicists agree.  So it’s only natural that the logarithmic scale is designed into the Torah and the Divine calendar as with most of our mathematics today, they are all based on a base-10 system.

Here’s a tip of the hat to those 2012 doomsayers, just so they don’t say we’re too fixated on 5778 (2018). The height of the Great Pyramid in Egypt is 5775 inches and the sum of all the integer logarithms through 2012 is 5775.15. Yet either way, the sum of the logs of the 3 integers for the 3 inches from 5775 to 5778 is .778151 or the log of 6 for the 6 years from 2012 to 2018 is .778151, so there you have it.

Everyone can choose to fixate on whatever they want, but if fixating on the tree-of-life reality and the coming of Moshiach consciousness will draw that into your life, its a worthwhile pursuit whenever it occurs, B’H soon.

We’ll begin shortly a series of articles that will posit differing scenarios of what it could be like to awaken from this world of illusions that we’re currently trapped in and see reality for what it truly is.

The Chosen Ones! Who Me?

We are the Chosen Ones. What does it mean to be chosen?

My wife wasn’t feeling well the other day and when I left to drop my son off at a play date, I told my daughter she was in charge while I was gone. She immediately said, “Then I’m the boss,” so I explained to her that it meant that she had to take responsibility while I was away (45 minutes), not that she could boss anyone around.

A leader leads by example, not by decree. And that goes the same for a people (the chosen ones). We have to take responsibility for what’s happening all around us and to personally work to fix it, without telling anyone else what to do.  If we can then inspire them to voluntarily help us, we will then be leaders.

We haven’t done that.  Moses did.  King David did.  The Baal Shem Tov did.  And a long list of tzaddikim understood that and did it on a smaller scales. But is anyone today doing it? Is anyone ready to step up?

The Geula (final redemption) will happen for those that are ready and have accepted the Tree-of-life reality, but for the majority it won’t, just like at Mt Sinai, as we’ve explained in numerous articles already. G-d provides cosmic windows for things to happen and either we’re ready and prepared for them, or we’re not.  No one can just appear and do the work for us.

Think about it, if that we’re the case, why make us wait? If we weren’t going to change on our own anyway, why wait until now, the year 2500 would have been just as good a time.

It’s not about waiting for Moshiach (the Messiah) to come; it’s about becoming like the Mashiach.  Those that have consciously accepted and prepare themselves for the Tree-of-life reality will step through it when the cosmic window opens.

But how do we reach the millions that don’t realize that, and are waiting for someone to do it for them? And if we don’t try to reach them, what does that say about whether we’ve fully embraced the Tree-of-life consciousness or understood the essence of the Torah, with its over-riding principle to love they neighbor as thyself.

We’ve been told Moshiach Ben Joseph will come first. Will he? It depends on us.  Any one of us can stand up and become the leader that the world needs.  If he steps up and takes responsibility, and inspires many others to follow and to take responsibility themselves, who would argue that he wouldn’t be Moshiach Ben Joseph.

Then the way will be paved for Moshiach Ben David to take us the rest of the way.

As the cosmic window of opportunity opens for us, someone needs to fulfill that mission, if not the 50th gate will close again.  Back at Sinai, in 2448, we were at the 49th gate, which not coincidentally was the 49th jubilee year (50-year Biblical period) since Adam.

As we finish our 5769th 9th of Av, we are reminded of the destruction of the First Holy Temple in 3338, 66.6 jubilee years after the sin of Adam, and are reminded of the darkness that comes from choosing the Tree-of-knowledge-of-good-and-evil over the tree-of-life.  Now, 66.6 jubilee years after the revelation and opportunity at Sinai, we face the choice again.  5778, the year known to the tzaddikim, is just around the corner.

When that 50th gate swings open will we go through as a tiny group, or as a whole people? Will we go through at all?

The First Holy Temple was destroyed in –422 BCE, and as readers of “The Divine Calendar” know, 422 is the gematria value of   “Seventy(70).” The Second Holy Temple was destroyed in 70 CE.  In 5778, the nation of Israel will be 70 years old, the age that King David died; will we go through the gate as a nation, or let fear, doubts, and hatred grip us as in the past?

We each have a choice to make.

It’s up to each of us to take responsibility and to step up, and for one of us to take it to heart and step higher, inspiring the rest of us to follow in his beautiful footsteps. Let’s all take that first step, and then the second to make it easier for him—9 years is not much time to work with and we all have a long way to go.

Let’s not waste anymore time.

Shabbat Shalom

What G-d Thought.

A lesson from my daughter’s kindergarten class:

They were exploring Parshat Noach and the teacher sent us this email letting us know what was going on in class: “We asked each student to draw a picture using a red crayon. We asked them to put effort into the picture. When they finished we handed them a orange crayon and asked them to add to the red picture…then a yellow crayon, followed by green, blue, and purple crayons. Half way through the students realized these colors created the order of the colors of the rainbow. After they finished, we asked them to share their picture with their classmates. Then we asked them to raise their hand if they liked their picture… and if they felt they put a lot of effort into it. All of them raised their hand. We told them the pictures were not good and they needed to crumple them up and throw them away and start over again. They were not happy. And so we began our discussion on Noach….”

“Through this short activity students were able to understand from first hand experience how God felt when He decided to destroy the world….God’s own creation.”

After explaining about the rainbow, they went on to explain that “When we get angry with things that don’t turn out the way we want them to…. be it a block structure, the letter S, a drawing, or a game, we do not have to destroy it; we need to fix it (Tikkun Olam). Although God promises us God will not flood the world again, there are many things that are wrong with the world. God gave the Jewish people the charge of fixing the world, being a light unto others… through TiKKun Olam.”

Thank G-d for wonderful teachers!

And thank G-d for giving us the opportunity to fix things. Through trial and error, he could have incrementally improved us; He could have wiped us out another 4 times already, yet He gave us the 4 exiles instead within which to work on ourselves. As explained in previous blogs, He gave us a total of
2448 years to learn to appreciate His Creation and to respect it, but after 2440 of those 2448 years, I wouldn’t want to have to bring home our report card.

And this I don’t expect my daughter’s class to understand: Those 2448 years divided by the 4 exiles work out to an average of 2448/4 = 612 and 612 is the gematria value of the word Brit, Covenant, as in G-d first Covenant with earth, the rainbow. At the end of the 4th exile, in the year 5778 HC , (2018 CE) as advised to us by the tzaddikim of blessed memory, G-d will fulfill with us his Covenant with Abraham, made in 2018 HC.

So, after the first 1658 years of our creation, at the time of the flood, how devastating was it for G-d? How hard was it for him to crumple up the beautiful earth that it seemed only He appreciated? In out terminology it must have been very painful, so painful he vowed not to do it again. It was so painful that he gave us another 4120 years, or 4120/1658 = 2.485 times as long as He had given the generation of Noach.

Sure 4120 = 1o x 412 (the numerical value of the letter bet(B) the first letter in the Torah and of the word Beit as in the Beit Hamikdash, or Holy Temple, but frequent readers of this blog should recognize 248 as Abraham and as racham (mercy) and also 2485. Especially since 5778 K is the surface temperature of the Sun and 248.5 is the surface temperature of the Earth, so it appears the destruction of the Flood was planned and known at the moment of Creation when the surface temperatures (radiances) of the Earth and Sun where set.

But just because it was planned, doesn’t mean it didn’t pain him. G-d, the Light if you will is in all creation and thus at the level that we can understand G-d loves all things and it pains him at the willful destruction even of a blade of grass, let alone all of civilization. Yet with the intensity that he must have felt our suffering, like a parent who suffers at punishing and thus depriving a child from something that he really enjoys in order to help him understand right from wrong, G-d did it for us.

I guess you could say that all that water came from His tears, which is why it’s so salty.

And what about the destruction of the First Temple in 3338 HC, since its ratio with the Flood date 1658/3338 is .49670 or nearly exactly 2 x 248.5. Readers of The Divine Calendar know that all the significant Biblical dates line up in a beautiful awe-inspiring well-planned time-line, including Israel’s statehood in 1948 CE echoing Abraham’s birth in 1948 HC and the midpoint of King David’s life in 2889 HC being the midpoint between Adam and Moshiach in 5778 HC, but beyond the awe that this should inspire in us, what it should tell us is how much G-d loves us.

He could have ended it all in 1658, or 3338, but that wasn’t His plan. He had planned on the year 5778 HC (2018 CE) all along, and He meant for our generation to be the one to receive H’Mashiach from day 1, so knowing we we’re so loved, that we are the chosen people, how are we showing our appreciation? More than any generation before us, we should be showing it today.

Even more than those kindergarten students respect their wonderful teacher, and even more than they love their parents, we should be respecting and loving G-d and all his creations. So I repeat, I wouldn’t want to see our report cards. When 5778 comes around, G-d willing (B’H), none of us will be in detention.

Amazing Unifications

I was studying the Arizal’s explanations on the 3rd of the 10 plagues last night, Lice (Kinim) of numerical value 120, when it occurred to me that the 50 letters in the 3 iterations of the spelled-out Name of G0d, Adonai, associated with the malchut level total 2608, which is 120 more than 2488, the year Moses died at the age of 120 and when the Israelites entered the Promised Land.

But Adonai is the pronounceable aspect of G-d’s Name, YHVH, which is associated with Zeir Anpin. Together Adonai (EDNY) and YHVH form a powerful unification YEHDVNHY equivalent to 91, the value of Amen, and we know from the Arizal that we should meditate on this unification whenever we say Amen in order to complete the connection of the 7 sefirot (dimensions) between Malchut and Zeir Anpin This helps elevate the blessing that was recited, and in so doing we procure for ourselves all the same benefits as the person who made the blessing.  Some chazal say we get even more benefit than the person reciting the blessing because we plugged it into the outlet.  And in these difficult days, the very least we should be doing is helping one another by saying Amen and making the unification (YEHDVNHY) in our minds.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve witnessed easy easy missed opportunities for people to help one another and help themselves by simply saying amen. It starts with the little things, with consciousness and compassion, and spreads to reveal Moshiach and a new reality beyond all the veils of illusion.

But this was an aside, what had really occurred to me was that when we unify the 50 letters of the 3 iterations of Adonai (EDNY) with the 42-Letters of the 3 iterations of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) we get 2608 + 50 + 708 + 42 = 3408 and 3408 was the year the Second Temple was Built.

First of all, we should note for those that noticed it, that the 42-letters of YHVH do indeed comprise the upper Shem Mem-Bet, or upper 42-Letter Name and that when we recite the Ana B’koach and take an action to manifest what we’re meditating on the two 42-Letter Names unite on our behalf. (See The Genesis Prayer for how to use the Names/meditations properly) Furthermore, according to chazal it’s this unification of 42 + 42 = 84 that create Pad (PD), redemption of gematria value 84.

Now, as readers of The Divine Calendar know, nearly all the significant dates of the Bible and Biblical events end in the number 8 so it’s interesting that 3408 results from the unification of the two very important Names of G-d and that they both also end in 8: 2608 and 708, and that 3408 is 800 more than 2608. Moreover, if we remove the 8’s, we’re left with the numbers 26, 70, and 340. The number 26 is always representative of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), and 340 is the value for the word Shem (Name) and 70 couldn’t be more integral to the Divine calendar.

The number 70 is more than just the 70 members of Jacob’s family who entered Egypt, or the 70 members of the Sanhedrin, and it’s more than 70 years that Adam and the Patriarchs gave to King David so that he’d live for 70 years and that the midpoint of his life in 2889 would mark the midpoint of G-d timetable from Adam to 5778, when the tzaddikim (righteous souls) have advised Mashiach (Messiah) and the geula (final redemption) will occur.

To begin to understand the simple complexity and divine beauty in G-d timetable, we need to note that when we square 5778, we get 3338… and the First Temple was destroyed in 3338 HC, and while the Second Temple was built in 3408 HC as noted above, there are 34083338, or 70 years between the destruction of the First Temple and the building of the Second Temple.  These 70 years comprise the Exile in Babylon that was ended by Ezra, The Scribe, who returned the Jews to Israel and who arranged for the Second Temple to be built. These 70 years also compare to the date 70 CE when the Second Temple was actually destroyed and to the numerical value for the word “seventy” (70), which is 422, as in the 422 years that the Second Temple stood, and moreover the date 422 BCE when the First Temple was destroyed.

Take a moment to reflect on that. There’s no mathematical slight of hand that could line up these dates or lengths of times; this is just the way history played out.  And it’s meant to create awe in us.

We need not fear G-d and suffer the 10 plagues again, not even lice,  if we can summon the awe of G-d that the Israelites had in 2448, which is 3330 or 66.6 jubilee (50-year intervals) years ago when in paragraph 42 of the Book of Names (Exodus) they sang out in praise to G-d for their deliverance from Exile.

“…and the people were in awe of God. They believed in God and in his servant Moses.”

That all it takes for us to exit the exile and enter the tree-of-life reality: To be in awe of G-d, believe in G-d (with certainty in our hearts and minds), and in his servant Moses/Moshe (Moshaich). Amen!
