The Torah; Beyond the Beginning.

Where to begin? “In the beginning G-d created….” The Torah tells us what to do in its very first word: Bereshit (“In the beginning” ). But the Torah is far from a narrative and the word Bereshit is far more than the beginning of a story. It’s a commandment. It’s a commandment for us to look deeper, to look to the source, to seek out the beginning, and in so doing to come closer to the Creator.

In this blog and our articles, we’ve often selected key words, phrases, or portions of the Torah and dug deep, uprooting profound meanings that help open up the big picture, but this time we are going beyond.  We’re going to unravel the Torah and all its 304,805 letters, 79,975 words, 5845 verses, etc etc and go back to its latent state, when ALL existed in potential and nothing was limited by physicality. We are going to pull back some of the veils to the endless. We’ve been silent for quite some time now, but permission has finally been granted. It’s time.

In it’s physical state the Torah is a document written on 80 sheets of parchment and about 80,000 words long, which makes sense since spiritually, according to the Arizal, the Torah is Yesod of Abba and the numerical value of “Yesod” (the sefira/dimension) that channels forth the shefa (life-force energy) is 80 and Abba is the highest level, but this is just a side note.

This “document” is comprised of black letters and white space, referred to by the Zohar as black fire and white fire, neither more or less significant than the other. Without one we could not see or fathom the other.

There are strict laws in recreating a Torah that a scribe must follow meticulously or the Torah isn’t kosher, in other words completely invalid. For example, each of the 304,805 letters, comprised of exactly (600,000-408) component letters must be formed fully and perfectly and in the precise order; one deviation and the entire document is nullified. He does, though, have a little leeway in how many letters, grouped into specific words, verses, and paragraphs to place on each line, put just so long as each of the columns begin at specific places.  This means he can stretch certain letters within guidelines and also stretch the space between some of the letters again within guidelines.

Nevertheless, in the end there will be 42 rows of spaces and letters, let’s call them collectively “character spaces” in each column, and either 245 or 248 columns per page, as there are always two points of view in Judaism. The standard is 248 columns, corresponding most fittingly numerically to “womb” and “mercy” and “Abraham,” considering that the sum of the Names of the 5 Books in the Torah is 2480. But enough gematria, we’ll explore the significance of 245 columns, and also 246 columns, after we tackle the matrix formed by the 248 columns by 42 rows.

There is nothing left to chance in the Torah, also known as The 5 Books of Moses, everything has a special “harmonic” alignment and thus purpose. The total number of 304,805 letters, 79,975 words and 5845 verses collectively equals 390,625 or 58. That would appear to be more than an accident, right? Exactly 5 raised to the power of 8. Try just calculating that in your head, 5 x 5, now 5 again, now 5 again, again and again 8 times, let alone keeping track of all those letters, words, and verses.

But what if all the letters and the empty “white fire” spaces, in other words, the character spaces in that same 248 x 42 matrix also totaled 390,625 or 58?

Because they do, more or less. It’s because of that leeway that today’s scribes have in stretching the letters and spaces that the matrix created even before the Torah was laid out, in other words before Creation, might not necessary come out to exactly  58, but if properly written it will be close.

This by itself should be astonishing, but there is a deeper reason behind it, one primordial to life and the structure of the universe itself.  And that’s what we’re seeking out. But before we get to that, we need to help ally the skeptics fears about there really being a G-d (or as some put it, a G-d-like force in the universe) and show how the numbers add up.

First of all, let’s note that this 248 by 42 matrix works out to 10416 rows, with 20 (4 between each book and 1 before and after each of the two songs) being necessarily empty, leaving us with 10396 rows that contain at least some letters. So when we divide the 304,805 letters amongst the 10396 rows it works out to 29.32 letter/row on average, which corresponds with the Shulchan Aruch that states that a length of line should be three times the word “למשפחותיכם” or 30 letters more or less (Shulchan Aruch, Yoreh Deah 272:2).

But that’s just the letters and it’s the easy part. Next, we know that there are 79975 words in the Torah, and 79975 words divided by 10396 lines gives us 7.693 (7.7) words per line, which means that there are at least 6.7 spaces between the words on average per line. And thus without any further computation we know that there are 36.0123 character-spaces directly attributable to the letters and words. A nice round number (36) but not the complete picture, which would necessarily be 37.50 character-spaces per line if indeed there are 58 character-spaces in the Torah. One of the essential elements of Torah study followed by the sages for ages has been the use of the initials of words in a specific Torah phrase, and coincidentally or not, the initial numerals in the 304,805 letters, 79,975 words and 5845 verses which collectively equal 390,625 or 58 are 3, 7, and 5, as in 37.5 character-spaces per line.

Now, there are 670 paragraphs in the Torah and there has to be a minimum of 9 spaces between them and a maximum of about 35 and here is where the scribes have lots of leeway. On average, and somewhat arbitrarily, there’s between 17 and 20 spaces allotted to the paragraph separation . Using 17 for the 670 paragraphs, we have 11,390 additional character spaces. Then there are the 20 empty rows at 37.5 character spaces each and you could argue that that is arbitrary, but we already know that it is at least, and also close to, 37.11, so it’s not so farfetched.  Anyhow, this gives us 20 rows x 37.5 spaces, or an additional 750 character spaces.

Then if we add the approximately 28 by 24 extra spaces in the Song of the Sea and the 70 lines by 9 extra spaces in portion Ha’Azinu, we have another 672 and 630 spaces respectively, bringing the total to within about 2000 or so spaces of the total 390,625, easily compensated for by the allowed stretched spacing and stretched writing found in most Torahs. We could easily make it work out exact, but if it were meant to be, as the sum of the letters, verses and words are, it would have been.  We are dealing with the intangible spiritual state and are meant to enter this cloud-like state as Moses did, focused by our certainty and not by a well-lit path.

The 2000 or so spaces can go either way, and thus on average will go right down the middle, directly toward 390,625, which when broken down by gematria spells out “The Crown (625, H’Keter) of Heaven (390, Shama’im).

Thus focused and ascending, let’s continued beyond, where we recall the words of Rabbi Chaim Vital of blessed memory that all Torah light is spread by squaring, and thus we can now see how this matrix of white and black fire was unfolded into Creation.  Working backwards, we can take the square root of 390,625, which is 625, then do it again (25) and again (5) and one more time (√5) for a total of 4 times, corresponding to the 4 Letter/levels/phases of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).

(√5)2 = 5 and 52 = 25 and 252 = 625 and 6252 = 390,625

It’s not called the 5 Books of Moses for nothing.

This square root of 5 is no arbitrary number, not by a long shot.  Yes, on the surface it’s just some endless irrational number 2.2360… but so is Pi. Nevertheless, √5 appears to have been chosen to define the primordial existence that gave birth to Creation and thus physicality in the formation of the Torah matrix.  A bold statement for sure, but the mathematicians are already smiling because they already know what’s coming next.

It turns out our physicality is indeed defined by the square root of 5. For you see the (√5) is at the heart of the primordial mathematical constant Phi, which controls (dictates) all natural spiraling growth in nature from the petals on the flowers, the branches on the trees, the twisting of seashells, our DNA, and arms of the Milky Way.

(√5 – 1)/2 = Phi (.61803399…)

and also

(√5 +1)/2 = Phi2 (1.61803399…)

And reminiscent of the essential Kabbalistic equation, “He and His Name are One”

we have the reason why the square root of 5 creates natural growth.

(√5 – 1)/2 x (√5 + 1)/2 = 1

or

Phi x Phi2 = 1

Extrapolating from 1, we get 4

(√5 – 1) x (√5 + 1) = 4

From Unity to the YHVH

So, G-d took this sacred space or dimension and unfolded it 4 times before shaping it into a matrix of 248 by 42 in a proportion of about 6 columns to every row, the same proportion (59%) of verses in the Torah that begin with the letter Vav of numerical value 6. Which leads us to the filling of that matrix, going from a potential state to a physical one, the point of Creation.

After the matrix was filled with swirling white and black fire in very specific quantities, both of which as we’ve seen tie back to the square root of 5, the black fire was arranged according to G-d’s Name, YHVH.

As you can imagine, the shape the black fire took was significant in every detail. Even without the help of the scribes the 22 Hebrew letters vary in size with 2 of them Yud and Vav occupying a single width, 4 of them occupying 2 widths and 16 of them occupying 3 widths, thus once again giving us a unfolding squaring pattern, 2, 4, 16.

For some reason, the fire of the 304,805 letter characters was split into exactly 300,000 of the 26 assorted letters (including the 5 final variations) and 4805 of the letter Pe, or Phe (possibly representing Phi in both its spiraling shape and sound).

Then of those 300,000 letters, 90,100 letters, or 30% of them, were the letters Yud, He, and Vav, the building blocks of the Tetragrammaton, the YHVH, with the value 90,100 being equivalent to the sum of the integers through the number 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David.” (The Messiah).

Sum of integers 1 to 424 = 90,100

    424 = Moshiach Ben David

These 3 letters were arranged in specific patterns throughout the Torah matrix forming along the way 1820, or 20 x 91 Tetragrammatons (YHVH). Now those 1820 YHVH are comprised of 7280 letters, reminiscent of the 7 words and 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse, whose inextricable ties to the 42-Letter Name of G-d and the mathematical constant Pi are pervasive.

We only bring this up to point out a persistent pattern in the way the black fire unfolded within the 248 x 42 matrix. As we said, the first verse of the Torah has 7 words, and the sum of the integers from 1 to 7 is 28, as in the 28 letters of that verse.  Then we have the total numerical value of that verse being 2701, which is likewise the sum of the integers from 1 to 73, the numerical value of Chochma (Wisdom). And then there is the total numerical value of the first 8 words (33 letters) of the Torah, which is 3003, and which happens to be the sum of the integers from 1 to 77, the numerical value of mazal (divine fortune).

This pattern of including all the previous integers starts with the essential Name of G-d, which is injected into every aspect of the the Torah matrix. The 4 letters of the YHVH when spelled out YVD HY VYV HY become 10 letters, just as the sum of the integers from 1 to 4 = 10. When spelled out again they become 28 letters, as in the sum of integers from 1 to 7. And in its first 3 spelled-out iterations the YHVH and thus the energy of the YHVH becomes

4 + 10 + 28 = 42

These are the 42 Letters of the Upper 42-Letter Name of G-d, from which all divine sustenance flows down to us.

This pattern of including all the previous integers (spiritually just representations of specific energy levels) is oft repeated throughout the Torah; nevertheless, we’d like to point out that Torah space is more than space as we conceptualize it; it’s space and time and more, wrapped up in one. Therefore, when we add the sum of the first 7 and the first 8 words of the Torah together with the average of what they represent as the sum of integers:

2701 + 3003 +(73+77)/2 we get

= 5779

This is the date prophesied by the Tzaddikim for the coming of Moshiach consciousness and the Tree-of-life reality. Now, if Torah space is more than space, how much more would the primordial unfolded space-time occupied by the square root of 5 be?

And we find the answer in that the sum of the integers through 42, which is 903:

The sum of the integers from 1 to 42 = 903

903√5 = 2019

2019 CE = 5779 HC

You can read all about these prophecies by Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag, etc on our blog and The Divine Calendarin The Divine Calendar and Nothing is Random in the Universe so I’d like to get back to the brand new revelations and the structural essence of the Torah, but we would like to point out that the matrix is a reflection of sorts of the Tree-of-life, of which there are 32 Paths, which we’ve pointed out in other articles corresponds to the 32 times the Name Elohim is mentioned in Creation and to the 5-dimensional hypercube with its 32 vertices and 80 edges and 80 faces.

And one such result of this reflection is found by taking the matrix itself, 248 x 42, or 10416 lines (rows), and taking its square root again and again, 6 times, until it equals  (1.155517…) 32 A meaningless number, whose only significance (to our limited understanding) is that when we multiply it by 50, as in the 50-year Biblical jubilee period that the Torah commands us to to count, we get 57.77588…, yet another representation of the period 5777/5778 HC and of the use of the Jubilee year.  Whether it’s  115.552 jubilee years from Creation to 5778 or 66.6 of them from the reception of the Torah at Sinai in 2448 to 5778, it must all have been designed from even before the black fire was allowed to mix with the white.

None of this is surprising of course, because Phi18 also equals precisely 5778.000 and against all astronomical odds, the only 4-digit numerical strings found to repeat 3 times within the first 1000 digits of Pi, are 5778 and its CE equivalent, 2019, back to back years, a demarcation in time.  But you can read about that in Nothing is Random in the Universe and today, we’re concerned mainly about the unfolding of the Torah, not space-time.

Interestingly, when we take the square root of 10416 and take it again (the 4th root) we get 10.1024 and while 10 universally represents the 10 dimensions of the Tree-of-life and of modern physics, 1024 is precisely equivalent to  322 . Moreover, there just so happens to be exactly 1024 different numerical values represented within the 80,000 words of the Torah.

Now, let’s go back to those 90,100 Yuds, Hes, and Vavs of which 7280 formed the 1820 Tetragrammaton (YHVH) in the Torah.   As you may have noticed when we mentioned 1820 = 20 x 91, the numerical value of the all important kabbalistic unification of YHVH and EDNY (Adonai) and of “Amen (EMN),” there is another synergistic 91 hidden here. It’s found in the simple sum of the whole and it’s parts; “He and His Name are One:

1820 + 7280 = 9100.

Nevertheless, and even as the importance of this is lost on us, there is a deeper significance that we can note. Since there are 304805 letters (black fire) within the 390625 character-spaces, there are necessarily 85820 white fire spaces within the matrix, just about 22% of the Torah spaces.  While the connection to the 22 Letters of the Hebrew alphabet, or as Abraham described them, the 22 building blocks, is obvious, the juxtaposition to the 82820 Yuds, Hes, and Vavs that do not comprise the 7280 YHVH is less so.

Subtracting 82820 from 85820 gives us and even 3000. And what we can take away from this is that possibly all but 3000 of the “empty” spaces correspond to either Yuds, Hes, or Vavs and thus carry the Name of G-d within them, an energy that bonds the letters into words and verses; after all, because of this special design that’s incorporated into the Torah, those 85820 “empty” character spaces correspond precisely with the 85820 words and verses in the Torah.

Words (79975) + verses (5845) = 85820

Empty Character spaces = 85820

YHVH in Torah = 1820

82820 Resultant Yuds, Hes, and Vavs

820 = Numerical value of “Love thy neighbor as thyself”

 

The Sun and the Moon

Speaking of the 5845 verses, the small gematria numerical value for “the Sun (H’Chamah)” is 5845, which is all the more interesting considering that there are on average 29.3 letters per line of Torah and the days of the lunar cycle are 29.5. Not a perfect match, but if you recall at the outset of their article we mentioned that it is accepted practice to write the Torah with 245 columns as well as the standard and as we’ve seen oh so special 248.  If the Torah matrix were to have 245 columns everything would be crammed into a slightly smaller space, resulting in 7.78 words/line and 29.68 letters/line, but if it were 246 columns, there would be 29.50 letters/line, meaning each line would be representative of the monthly lunar cycle. This leeway provides room for us to think and ponder. It gives us room to explore and find our own way. If G-d gave us a giant clock, Man would probably have broken it by now.

By the way, in case you are new to our blog, the surface temperature of the Sun is 5778 K and the average surface temperature of the Earth will reach 57.78 F within the next 6 years. One big clock.

According to the Zohar, in the time of the geula, final redemption and of the advent of Moshiach consciousness, the Sun and the Moon will be equal. The Torah matrix provides a structure for this to occur; it’s up to us to find it.  But recall, the Sun, represents Zeir Anpin, (a sharing/channeling force) and the Moon, Malchut (a purely receptive vessel), possibly meaning that in the so-called end-of-days, the receptors will be able to share with the givers and a new balance will be in order.

But before there was a Sun and a Moon there was Phi, the primordial mathematical constant that along with Pi and several laws of nature helped bring into being our physical world, once the matrix had been laid out.  Going back to the 248 column structure of the Torah matrix, we note that besides the 390,625 elements there are also the 248 columns and the 10,400 lines (discounting the 16 blank lines that separate the 5 Books). These total 401,273 total elements and

Phi2 = 1.61803399..

401,273/Phi2 = 248,000

Moreover,

390625/(√1 + √2)=1,618,022

And when all the black fire was laid out and arranged amongst the white fire, and divied up amongst the 5 Books in the Torah, all of varying length, the number of chapters, words, letters, verses were indelibly set into place. It’s here that we find that they were all split (actually divided) into specific segments using the Phi proportion. T he first chapter of Numbers (Bamidbar) is the dividing point in terms of letters, of words, and also of verses 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

There should be no doubt that Phi is an integral part of the structure of the Torah matrix or that we weren’t meant to eventually wake up and realize it.  By the way, if we add the 670 paragraphs and the 80 pieces of parchment to the 248 columns,  10396 rows and 390625 elements we get 402019 and the only 5-digit string to repeat in those first 1000 digits of pi is 42019.

390,625 + 10396 rows + 248 columns + 670 paragraphs + 80 parchments =

402019

Everything has a purpose in the Torah.

We’ve breached the boundary of the upper worlds, and thus endless wisdom is available to us, but we’re right at the entrance and must be careful not to drag our negative shells (klippot) and personal agendas along with us.  Walking up is only the first step. It’s what we do from then on that matters.

There’s a lot of math here and the concepts underlying it are very profound so we will take our time in subsequent articles exploring them and bring them into our lives in a more concrete way.

Best wishes and love to everyone on this hillula of Moshe Rabbeinu,

It was Recorded Even Before Creation

After my recent lecture in Toronto and a deeper discussion with some of the students I had The Divine Calendara renewed interest in how the Ana B’koach (the 42-Letter Name of G-d) interrelates with the first 42 letters of Bereshit (Genesis). I also subsequently received new insights into another deeper matrix structure of the 42 Letters, but that is another article. Nevertheless, before I illustrate this new revelation, my going to re-post an article in Israel Today about a Rabbinic prophecy from 1217 that has been circulating on the web and that helps substantiate all our previous revelations on this blog and in our books, most notably, The Divine Calendar and There’s Nothing Random in the Universe concerning the date for Moshiach and the advent of the tree-of-life reality in 2017/2018 (5777/5778). I would also like to ask if anyone has any further knowledge about this prophecy or its source, Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel, may his memory be for a blessing.

“According to this article, Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel was a top Talmudic scholar in Germany. Just before he died in the year 1217 he prophesied that the Ottoman Turks would rule over the holy city of Jerusalem for eight jubilees. That is 400 years (8 x 50). The Ottoman Turks did take control of Jerusalem 300 years after the Rabbi’s death in 1517 and as according to the prophecy, the Ottoman Turks then lost Jerusalem 400 years later in 1917. It was during WWI that British General Edmund Allenby walked into Jerusalem on Hanukkah without firing a shot in 1917. The timing of this with the holiday and the ease at which it occurred indeed make this moment of history extremely significant.

In the book, Signs of the End, the significance of this date and its events helped launch the book. This was without even knowing of the Rabbi’s prophecy. They key was Allenby’s entrance into Jerusalem during Hanukkah. With the first world war underway with nation rising against nation and kingdom against kingdom there was added importance. In 1917 all nations that were involved in the war had become involved. But the kickoff day for WWI was the 9th of Av 2014, when Russia and Germany entered the war establishing the plurality of nations involved in the war. In doing a study on the day counts found in Daniel, these two days came up on the radar screen at the same spacing and these days were the second day of Hanukkah (Kislev 26) and the 9th of Av. With these days occurring in 1914 and 1917, it was found that 100 years later that the same day counts of Daniel occur. This with 100 years being the limit of a generation found in the Bible (as defined by Abraham’s 4 generations of a total of 400 years-–is it a coincidence that the Rabbi’s prophesy of 400 years also ends in 1917?).

The Rabbi then went on to say that after the eight jubilees, the ninth jubilee would have Jerusalem being a no-man’s-land, which it was from 1917 to 1967 until the Six-Day-War. The Rabbi’s prophecy then stated that in the tenth Jubilee that Jerusalem would be controlled by Israel and then the Messianic end times would begin. That would then bring the time to 2017 [5777]”

This brings us to the new revelation about the 42 letters of the Name of G-d that an intimately tied to the first 42 letters of Bereshit (Genesis). If you take the 42 letters one by one and multiple their individual ordinal (place value amongst the 27 letters of the Hebrew alphabet) values by their standard numerical gematria value and add them all up ( alef: 1 x 1 + bet 2 x 2 ….+ tav 22 x 400) they equal exactly 105777 or 100,000 + 5777, which is an obvious reference to the year 5777 (2017) , and to the 10 sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-life structure of the greater universe It also refers to the hypercube (105) structure of the Torah (5 Books of Moses), which we have previously written about, as 100,000 = 105.

We can see why the sages said that the advent of Moshiach consciousness will be brought about by the understanding of the 42-Letter Name.

Moreover, some of those selfsame articles touched on the Torah connections to Phi, the primordial mathematical constant that existed at the dawn of the universe.  As it just so happens, when we apply the same formula to the Torah’s first 42 letters, taking the 42 letters one by one and multiplying their individual ordinal values by their standard numerical value and add them all up ( bet: 2 x 2 + resh 20 x 200 ….+ bet 2 x 2) they equal exactly 151618, with 1618 easily being an allusion to Phi (1.6180…) and 15 to the YH of the YHVH, Abba and Imma to those that understand.  This is not surprising as phi controls the harmonic spiraling growth in the universe and that Phi18 =5778.000

Now given the two sums from both interconnected sets of 42 letters, 105777 and 151618, we see that once split graphically into 10 5777 and 15 1618 the two prefixes 10 and 15 are in the ration 10/15 or .666 to one another, which brings us back to Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel’s prophecy, as there are exactly .666 jubilees (Biblical 50-year periods) from the Exodus from Egypt and the receipt of the 1o Commandments in 2448 and the year of prophecy 5777/5778.

More to come, let’s all inject as much light into our world as possible in these darkening days.

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.

Purim, Removing the Masks, Part I: New Revelations from the Beginning

It is said that Purim will be the only holiday that we’ll celebrate after the final redemption, but if all the holidays are based on cosmic windows, what separates Purim in the grand scheme of cosmic time? There is obviously some special connection between Purim and the times of Moshiach or the sages wouldn’t have made this special distinction.  We read about Purim in the Book of Ester so that’s where we must search for the answer.

It’s known that the Book of Esther is all about concealment, which is why we celebrate it with a costume party, but like the Torah there are layers of concealment.  The Name of G-d isn’t overtly mentioned in the Book of Ester, but it is found numerous times as the initials of phrases, often as permuted versions (ie YHVH, YHHV, VHYH). The Name Ehyeh (EHYH) is also found in the same manner, as are triplets of the 42-Letter Name and the 72 Names of G-d , but these are all relatively easy to find.

As we are so close to the time of Moshiach and the end of the 70 year period from the foundation of the State of Israel, we should be able to dig deeper, we sho9uld be able to reveal even more.  After all, the Book of Ester, marked the final years of the 70-year Babylonia exile.

It’s OK to get happy and a little inebriated on Purim in order to shed your mask and reveal the inner light within you, but the Baal Shem Tov and his students got drunk on Torah on Purim and so must we if we want to reveal the inner light within the holiday, the light of Moshiach (the Messiah) and Creation.

The story begins by telling us King Ahasuerus, who ruled over 127 provinces, displayed his wealth for 180 + 7 days for a total of 187 days.

Queen Vashti, his wife and equal, held her own party with her 7 maidens for the same final 7 days. On the 7th day, Ahasuerus consulted his 7 chamberlains.

The initials of the first two were Mem and Bet, an obvious allusion to the Shem Mem Bet (42-Letter Name) and also an indication that a journey would begin, as all Torah journeys begin with the Mem-Bet. The total value of their initials is 73, the numerical value of the sefira(dimension) of Chochma (wisdom), associated with both the 42-Letter Name and the Torah’s first verse, of 7 words, whose numerical value is 2701, which is also the sum of all the integers through 73.

Please keep in mind that at the heart of the Book of Ester is about removing Amalek (kabbalistic code for doubts) from our lives in order to bring about Mashiach, the geula (final redemption) and the Tree-0f-life reality, so just in case skepticism were to creep in and ruin it for us, the Book of Ester made certain we wouldn’t miss the connection to Chochma. The ordinal value of Chochma (CChMH) is 37, which is also the ordinal value of the initials of the 7 chamberlains (MBEBEZC).  Moreover, 37 x 73, the inner and surrounding light of Chochma equals 2701.

And as if that weren’t enough to grab our attention the last two chamberlain “Zether and Carcus” add up to 913, the same as the Torah’s first word, bereshit.

Oh, and by the way, those 187 days of display are analogous to the 187 chapters in the Torah, as are the 5 Parts of the Book of Esther analogous to the 5 Books of the Torah.

While the sages tell us Queen Ester was an incarnation of Sarah, the Matriarch, who live 127 years, 127 is also the number of ways any 7 items can be permuted, such as the 7 words in the Torah’s first verse, the 7 lines in the 42-Letter Name matrix, or the 7 dimensions (sefirot) in Zeir Apin, the ladder between Heaven and Earth to which both of them are associated.

We’re only at the 10th verse of the first of 10 chapters in the Book of Esther, an oft overlooked part except to the kabbalists, yet the 10 chapters in themselves is a hint that the Book of Esther may be about the necessary rectification of the 10 sefirot that comprise the Tree-of-life.

This 10th verse begins with  “On the 7th day, when the Kings heart was merry with wine” but let’s break that down, the 7th day is analogous to Shabbat, the 7th and final day of creation and “the King” to Hashem (G-d), and k’tov (was merry) has the numerical value of 37 once again and literally say was good, so the inner light of wisdom was good–the timing was right. The heart of the king (LV-HMLC) has the numerical value 127 once again, indicating that the timing was right to bridge the gap between Heaven and Earth, and with wine (B’YYN) can be understood as “in 70“. Thus the story is really telling us that in 70 years, the timing will be right for the re-establishment of the Tree-of-life reality, just as it was right for Ezra to bring the Israelites home from Persia after their 70 years of exile.

If you like how the Book of Ester’s revelations have begun you’ll love how it ends. In the next installment, we’ll reveal how the Hamelehk (The King) and the names of the other characters in the Purim story all reveal the same date for Moshiach’s manifestation.
