The Ten Commandments Part V: Where are You, God?

Some Got it, Most Didn’t; Will We?

…Continued from The Ten Commandments

In the previous installments we spoke of the first 3 words (Exodus 20:2), “I am God, your Lord,” of the 10 Commandments and how they connect with the Torah’s first verse and how they contain the entirety of the 10 Commandments’ power and structure.

Just to add to what’s been discussed already,  we note that we can break down (ENCY YHVH ELHYC) into the symmetrical phrase (EYC YHVH NHL EYC), which numerically is (31 + 111 + 31) and while 31 is the numerical value of El (G-d) and Lo, (LE), meaning “don’t,” used so often throughout the 173 words of the 10 Commandments.  Meanwhile 111 is the value of the letter alef (E), the permuted phrase could translate to “Where are you? G-d, our guide, Where are You?”

Some of the Israelites reached Keter, and the Tree-of-life represented by alef, which when broken down (Yud-Vav-Vav-Yud) has the numerical value of 32 and thus is our physical symbol of the 32 Paths of Wisdom that are the 32 connections (energy centers and channels) of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) that comprise the Tree-of-life. One of the interesting things about the structure of the letter alef (Yud-Vav-Vav-Yud) is that the upper Yud-Vav component when spelled out equals 42 numerically, as does the lower Yud-Vav component when spelled out equal 42. Thus the letter Alef, all on its own represents the complete union of the upper and lower 42-letter Names, which chazal has explained together translate to Pad (84), redemption.  It’s no wonder that the Alef represents the Tree-of-life, which according to R’ Chaim Vital of blessed memory in his book, New Writings, is really 42 and connected to the 42 Letter Name, because the 32 Paths are added to the 10 sefirot (dimensions). This is also why there are 42 letters in the names of the sefirot.

Most did not, and asked “Where are you? G-d, our guide, Where are You?”

They could see the words but not beyond them. We have to do everything we can to see beyond them, past the barriers of our own illusions, our own limitations.

Like the first 3 words of this first verse that significantly have 13 letters that correspond to the 13 verses of the Ten Commandments, the last 2 words of the verse m’bet avadim, have 9 letters corresponding to the 9 paragraphs: (MBYT ABDYM), “from the house of slavery.”

So let’s examine those 2 words, which were last used in the Torah during the killing of the first born, the 10th plague, whose initials were MB. These 2 words (MBYT ABDYM) begin with Mem-Bet and Ayin-Bet respectively, as in the 42-Letter Name and the 72 Names, which are the keys to freedom hidden within the doorways to the house of slavery.

Some found these keys, most didn’t.

Those that didn’t weren’t really ready, even after everything they had seen. They still weren’t ready to let go completely.

When we unlock the MB and AB in (MBYT ABDYM) we’re left with 5 letters that total 1024, as in the numbers of word values in the Torah, precisely 210, or 32 x 32. Moreover, concealed within teh word for slavery (ABDYM) are the initials of Mashiach Ben David, and what’s left is the Hebrew word  Yi (AY), meaning “debris, ruins.” Two clear choices.

When faced with a revelation of light, we can choose to embrace it, or to embrace our doubts instead.  Most people choose the comfort of their doubts, and the company of their peers.

And while the numerical value of MBYT is 452, so is the number of times that the value 86, that of Elohim appears in the Torah, 452 times.  It’s noteworthy that found Elohim appears in both the Torah’s first verse and the 10 Utterances introductory verse (Exodus 20:1), both of whichare comprised of 7 words and 28 letters.

Meanwhile, the value of (MBYT ABDYM), “From the house of slavery” is 578, a possible allusion to the year prophesied  5778.

The connection to Elohim is understandable, considering that this Name (aspect of) G-d, was found 32 of those times in Creation, the first chapter of the Torah, which of course, means that the value 86 is found 32 times the story of creation and 420 times in the rest of the Torah. Things that make you go hmm!

Moreover, the value 86, that of Elohim, is found a total of 62 times through the completion of the 10 generations of Adam in chapter 5, analogis to the 62 letter Yuds of numerical value 10 within the 620 letters of the 10 Commandments.

There’s not much room for coincidence here. Nor room for error, as the window to the Tree-of-life opens for the 3rd time, the last time being 3330 years ago.

As one would imagine there’s so much concealed information and guidance jam-packed into these 620 letters that it becomes tedious to try to maneuver through it all. So we’ll stop here and continue in our next posts, where we’ll explain what everything in the previous articles were hinting at: what happened at Mt Sinai; what were the two paths in the Torah that followed; and what’s hidden in plain sight within the 10 Commandments that describes what the next few years will bring.

The implications for us today are extraordinarily profound, which is why all this tedious background enlightenment into the workings and encodings of the Ten Commandments (Utterances) and to its connection to the whole Torah were necessary. The Torah must be seen as a whole, and the 10 Utterances as a special moment or window in time if we are to welcome the next cosmic opening.

…to be continued shortly.

The previous installments of The Ten Commandments are here.

What the 10 Sefirot Reveal?

Tonight is the hillula of the Arizal, one of the greatest kabbalists of all time and to whom we owe most of our understanding (even if only on a limited basis) of the Tree-of-life. It is in his merit that we share today new revelations about the Tree-of-life. And as Abulafia said, nothing gets revealed without heavenly permission; everything in its time. As you’ll see now is the time. Rabbi Chaim Vital of blessed memory, the Arizal’s prized student and redactor, explained that the Tree-of-life was directly connected to the 42-Letter Name through the 10 sefirot (dimensions and 32 Paths of Wisdom that interconnect them, but it seemed in conflict with other commentary that described it was 10 sefirot and 22 linkages for a total of 32. Nevertheless, what neither he, nor anyone that we know of, has ever written about is that the 42-Letter Name also connect to the Tree-of-Life through the 42 letters in the 11 Names of the sefirot (including the all-important balancing dimension of Da’at, located between Chochma and Binah).

Now, we can’t tell you how they interact–anymore than Chaim Vital did over 400 years ago–but we do know, as the sages have told us, that it’s the understanding of the 42-Letter Name that will bring the geula (final redemption) and we can show you how the 42 letters of the 11 Names in the Tree-of-life mathematically spell out the date for the geula, the same date given to us by Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag, of blessed memory.

But first let’s examine what a little understanding can connect us to. First and foremost we must understand that, as explained by Abraham in his Sefer Yetzirah, the Hebrew letters are the building blocks of the universe and that how they recombine determines both the physical and spiritual (energetic) structure of the universe, so they are a lot more than squiggles on a page. Every word and name they form has significant individual meaning with far-flung consequences we can’t see nor fathom. And it’s only through the translation of gematria and simple mathematics that we get even a glimpse into that deeper meaning and purpose.

The 11 Names of the sefirot that make up the dimensional structure of our greater universe (Keter, Chochma, Binah, Da’at, Chesed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod, Yesod, and Malchut are spelled in Hebrew:

CTR

ChCMH

BYNH

DAT

ChSD

GBVRH

TGERT

NZCh

HVD

YSVD

MLCVT

It’s well known from the writings of the Arizal that the initials of these sefirot (without the inclusion of Da’at connect to the 5 letters of the name Israel through it’s value (541+5 = 546), and some people know that the first 4 initials of the upper sefirot (Keter, Chochma, Binah, Da’at) add up to 32, as in the 32 Pathways themselves. But what no one has written about that we know of is that there are 11 sefirot, 22 outer letters in the 11 Names, and 20 inner letters, and that the ordinal value for the letter C, T, and R, spelling Keter (CTR) are 11, 22, and 20; therefore, it’s through the spelling of these 11 Names that we can eventually connect to Keter, the crowning sefira.

And the timing for accessing that crowning level is found within the numerical value of the first and last letters of the 11 sefirot: 1985 plus 32 for the kolel of the 32 Paths equals 2017 (5778). Morever, the total value of the 42 letters in the 11 sefirot is 3342 and 3342- 11 (kolel) = 3331. And 3331 years (66.6 jubilee years) from 2448 HC, when the Israelites left Egypt and received the 10 Commandments, equals the end of the year 5778 and a new beginning, for it’s in the beginning where we found the 42-Letter Name and the Tree-of-Life.

Ezra

A similar parallel exists between the structure of the Tree-of-life and 10 plagues that preceded the last opportunity we had for achieving the Tree-of-life reality.

The 11 initials of the 10 plagues numerically equate to 541, the numerical value of Israel. The last two initials of the 11 words in the 10 plagues are M-B, as in the Shem MB, the 42-Letter Name. And with that, we’ll segue into the hidden spear in Washington DC that also points to 2018 (5778 HC) in our next article.

And God Spoke to Moses: The Location of Da’at

The verse V’Ydber Adonai El Moshe L’emor
וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר

Why is the verse V’Ydber Adonai El Moshe L’emor repeated so often in the Torah and what does it have to do with Creation?

In an earlier article we discussed how the verse “ וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר ” V’Ydber Adonai El Moshe L’emor breaks down two words at time through gematria (248, 376, and Lo Mar) to the blessing of He will bless you with (248): Mercy (248), Peace (375) and No Bitterness, and the distribution of multiple occurrences of this verse in certain specific portions so we wont go into that again. Taking the first letters of the words in the verse, two words at a time (VY, EM, and LM), just as in the blessing, we have the values, 16, 41, and 70 for Lo Mar “ לא־מר ” . The first two letters (“ ױ ”) of V’Ydber and also the second three (“ ידב ”) and the last three of the second word, the Tetragrammaton (“ יהו ”) also sum to 16, which is the ordinal or alphabet placement value of the letter Ayin (“ ע ”) whose standard gematria value is 70. And 70 are the number of times this verse is repeated in the Torah. As for 41 and “ אמ ” we’ll get to that shortly.

Concerning the 70 times the verse V’Ydber Adonai El Moshe L’emor of total value 913—the only verse of this value ( The unique value of this verse is 895 plus the kolel of 18 for the 18 letters of the verse ) in the Torah—is repeated in the Torah, we know 913 is the value of the Torah’s first word Bereshit , and that according to the Tikkunei Zohar there are 70 valid interpretations of Bereshit , in other words 70 connections to the seed level of creation. Seventy is obviously representative of the 70 sub- sefirot of the Zeir Anpin and a connection to the 70 family members of Jacob that entered Egypt and through which all the 600,000 Jewish souls passed. There’s also a connection to the 70 Elders who got a share of Moses’ divine presence with which to prophesize and help guide Israel. And also to the 70 Nation, their 70 languages, the 70 ministering angels, and the 70 bullocks sacrificed during Sukkoth. And also to the 70 years of Babylonian exile and to both the fall of the second Temple in 70 CE and to the 70 years that Adam gave up of his 1000 years lifespan to King David so that he could live to age 70.

How does the verse connect us to Keter and to Secrets?

Mathematically—the physical imprint of the spiritual world—70 represents the highest level, keter, in that the sum of the logs of all the integers 1 through 70 is 100.0 (keter). Spiritually, 70 is also the gematria value of the word, “ סוד ” Sod , secret, as in the 70 levels of Sod , secret understanding of the Torah, or as the Zohar puts it, the 70 faces of the Torah.

This is why, according to the Baal Shem Tov, of blessed memory, we use wine in our cups to do blessings over non-specific items: The cup, or vessel, is the malchut and the wine “” of numerical value 70, represents the 70 sub-sefirot of Zeir Anpin which connects us to sod, secrets. In other words, the act of the proper blessing, creates a unification and connects us to secrets.

Now we can see that the first letters in each of the 5 words of this verse add up to 87 and 87 plus 913 equals 1000, which is “ אלף ” eleph, and consequently the letter aleph of the same spelling. The significance of this is that through this verse, which seeming implies that God spoke to Moses prior to the spiritual writing of the Torah, the letter Aleph precedes the initial Bet in the Torah. We also see the parallel of the 5 words to the 5 kabbalistic worlds (levels of existence) and the 5 Books of Moses. And since the ordinal value of first two words of the Torah sum to 99, added the aleph would bring them up to a perfect 100, or the level of keter.

We also know from the Baal Shem Tov, of blessed memory, that the Name Ani Hashem “ “ is a unification of the upper and worlds, or of the Shechina (Ani)/Malchut with the Tetragrammaton (Havayah) “ ” representing Tiferet (Zeir Anpin). And the numerical value of that all-important unification is 87, which is why the first letters, or seed level consciousness, of the 5 words in the verse had to be 87.

What did Abraham say of the number 87?

Before we see to what Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah (The Book of Formation) connects the number 87, we should note that the sum of all the letter value word occurrences in the Torah is 7570 whose square root is 87.00…. In other words, this is the amount of times words with the value of the 22 individual letters appear in the Torah; for example gimmel has a value of 3 and words of that value appear in the Torah 68 times. Now, referring to Abraham’s description of the 10 sefirot, 87 is the value of Beli-mah “ “ meaning a profound nothingness.

Abraham’s description is far more descriptive in Hebrew, as the word breaks down to Bet-Lamed-Yud of value 42, an obvious reference to the 42-letter Name and Mah of value 45, another obvious reference to the attribute of the Tetragrammaton at the level of Zeir Anpin, and is known as Mah. The Bet-Lamed-Yud itself is quite descriptive since, as Rabbi Chaim Vital of blessed memory explains, the 42-letter Name corresponds to the 32 Paths of Wisdom (Bet-Lamed of value 32) and the 10 Sefirot (Yud of value 10), and moreover Bet and Lamed are the first and last letters of the Torah respectively.

How does this verse connect us to fortune?

We also know that 87 is the value of nazal, which is related to mazal and means to flow or drip, which is what the 5 seed level letters do to the rest of the 5 words and which the 5 words do channeling the energy to us when the Torah is read. How do we know this? Because as the Zohar tells us, the number 5 is connected with the letter Hei as in the oversized Hei found in the word beheibaram that was transferred to Abraham, whose name is permuted with the same letters whose value is 248, and the Hei (5) represents the 5 Books of the Torah. 248 is the value of the first two words in this verse (V’Ydber Adonai) and is the square root of the value of the word, “The Torah. Our connection to creation comes through Beheibaram which means “when they were created” from the verse “These are the generations of the heavens and the earth when they were created…” (Gen 2:4). And as Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai states in the Zohar, “He made them with the letter Hei.”

We also know from the Zohar that the Hei we’re referring to is representative of malchut, which is where the 5 seed level letters are directing their flowing energy. The Hei given to Abraham changed his fortune and allowed him to give birth to Isaac and be fruitful and multiply. Using this verse with the kavannot, or correct consciousness, during the Torah reading, we can do the same, for its purpose is to reconnect us with Creation and like Abraham, as it states in the Zohar, “the heavens are now in your control and all the stars and constellations that shine in them…”

Moses blessed us with the Aleph.

Aleph has a value of 111 and eleph spelled the exact same way means 1000. In Devarim 1:11, just before he passed away, Moses blessed the Israelites with “May G-d, the G-d of your forefathers increase you a 1000 fold.” Since G-d had already blessed the Jews to be as numerous as the dust on the earth, Moses was blessing them with a connection to Binah, as explained by the Arizal.

It is said that the Torah is designed to constantly connect us to Mashiach consciousness, how does this verse do that?

According to chazal, the final letters in a phrase indicate the future, and thus the 5 final letters in this verse sum to 441, when the kolel of one is included and this is the value of Emet, truth and it’s well known that the Torah is Truth. Thus the Torah exists in the future in reference to this verse. In other words, this verse preceded the Torah.

When we deduct the first and last letters from each word of this verse, plus 10 for the ten letters and thus the primordial 10 sefirot they represent, we get the 8 central letters that are equivalent to 358, the value of Mashiach, the Messiah.

So if G-d spoke to Moses prior to the supernal giving of the Torah, then Moses existed on a soul level prior to Adam and creation and he could be expressed in the Aleph that precedes the Bet ands thus he could be the Mashiach as many of chazal have expressed.

How is the 42-Letter Name Truth?

The Shem Mem-Bet or 42-letter Name is also Truth. Emet is spelled Aleph-Mem-Tav. Likewise, the 42 letters begin with Aleph and ends in Tav and has 40 letters in between with 40 being the value of Mem. Moreover, the letters koof, yud, are derivative from aleph in that their values reduce from 100 to 10 to 1 and the value of emet is 441, while among the 42 letters there are 4 koofs, totaling a value of 400; 4 yuds, totaling a value of 40 and 1 alef or value 1, so the 3 derivatives of aleph add up to and align perfectly with 441.

It’d known from chazal that the 42 Letter Name is also integrally connected with the famous name Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh or “I am that I am” and that the 2 Ehyeh “ “ in the Name, each of value 21 can be squared, 212, to equal 441, emet, and that they sum to 42.

What does this mean for the 42 Letter name?

According to the Arizal, all enveloping lights (Or Machief) are derived from the name Ehyeh; therefore, the Shem Mem-Bet is enveloping light.

If this verse is representative of the Torah and Truth and the same is said of the Ana B’koach (Shem Mem-Bet), how does this verse connect to the Shem Mem-Bet (42 Letter Name of G-d)?

The first 2 words of the verse have the standard gematria value of 248, as in Abraham, mercy, and the full 4 spelled out aspects of the 4-letter Tetragrammaton. And while the Torah’s first verse has a total value of 2701, which is equivalent to the sum of the integers through 73 (chochma ), the sum of the integers though 70 is 2485, indicative perhaps of the sum of the names of the 5 books of the Torah, 2480. Moreover, 70-28 = 42. Now the very first word, V’Ydber, has standard gematria value of 222, and an ordinal value of 42 as in the Mem-Bet Shemot , but 222 is the base 4 value of the base 10 number, 42. And while the Torah has 248 columns and 42 rows and that we can say this verse encapsulates the physical blueprint of the Torah, we can also see that at the seed level this verse is strongly tied to the “ מ״ב־שמות ” Mem-Bet Shemot. This is crucial because we know from chazal that the Mem-Bet Shemot preceded the Torah and the full value of the 42 letters of the 42 letter Name is 3701 exactly 1000 more than the value of the Torah’s first verse (2701) represented by the letter “ א ” aleph as discussed above.

As for the number 222 and base 10, the Tetragrammaton is found 222 times with an interval of between 2 and 10 in the Torah and 4 times that or 888 times with an interval of 1 up to the Book of Numbers.

So what are numbers?

The Sefer Yetzirah, or Book of Formation, says that numbers are the foundation of existence. 248 is one of the most significant Torah numbers with extremely positive connotations and representative of the love of Abraham. Indeed the 4th Book in the Torah, Bmidbar, which is called Numbers in English, has a numerical value of 248. It’s also the value of Romach “ “, the spear used by Pinchas, according to the Zohar, to unite Zeir Anpin and Malchut and thus end the plague that had already killed 24,000 or the 600,000 Israelites. 248, like all significant Torah numbers, is a point in hyperspace that has specific attributes and that can be accessed when connected to properly. They are like web addresses in the hyperspace of the Internet, virtual places from which we can download real information that can help us. And the simple Torah equations that link them together are like the algorithms that Google uses to search through the virtual universe and find them.

Interestingly enough, when we deduct out the value of this first word, 222 from the total raw verse valuation, 895, we get 673, a not so cryptic reference to both Binah (67) and Chochma (73). Not surprising because of the 70 verses: 10 are in Shmot (Exodus), corresponding to the 10 Commandments and the level of Keter; and 27 are in Vayikra (Leviticus), and 100 (keter) less 27 equals 73 (Chochma); and 33 are in Bamidbar (numbers) and 100 keter) less 33 equals 67 (Binah). And since the breakdown clearly represents the upper 3 sefirot it’s also not surprising that 10 equals 3 x 3.333 and 27 equals 3 x 3 x 3 and 33 is 33.

The last two words of the verse Moshe L’Emor add up to 616, the value of H’Torah “The Torah,” and also the number of times the name Moses appears in the Torah without prefixes. And the square root of 616 is 24.8, the same gematria as the verse’s first two words, V’Ydber Adonai.

What’s the connection with 333?

Besides 3 representing the kabbalastic balance of the right, left and central column or positive, negative and neutral system of the universe and sefirot. 333 is also connected to the 42-letter Name. Many people know of the 42-letter Name, also known as the Ana B’koach from the prayer derived from the Name, but very few know of the upper 42 Letter Name, also know as the 42 Letters of the Name, which is in simplistic terms the spelling out of the spelled out form of the Tetragrammaton at the Level of Av (Chochma). This Name comprised of 42 Letters works with the Ana B’koach and has a standard gematria value of 708, which when a kolel of One is added is the same as that of what the Sefer Yetzirah (Book of Formation) refers to as the seven Doubles, or seven letters that represent the seven planets of the Zodiac and thus control fortune (mazal). It is also equivalent to the word Ketoret, as in the incense of the holy Temple. It also has a gematria katan value of 159, as in the 159 paragraphs in Devarim, the last Book of the Torah. When we add the gematria katan value of the upper 42 letter Name and the lower one, plus One for the kolel we get 159 plus 173 plus 1 equals 333. 333 is also the exact total of the lines, meditation letters, pairs, triplets, words, and letters in the words of the Ana B’koach itself. Moreover, 1.73… is the square root of 3.

Now that we’ve established that connection, it appears not so coincidental that the location in the Torah where the 42 Places that the Israelites journeyed through in passage from Egypt to Israel, each beginning with a Mem and a Bet (to and from) and universally acknowledged by chazal to correspond to the Shem Mem-Bet or 42 Letter Name, is at Bamidbar 33:3.

So 70 is a number and numbers are virtual places, so where is 70?

The number 70 is obviously significant to the Torah, but 70 is not so much a number as a spiritual place located midway between Chochma/Wisdom (73) and Binah/Understanding (67) and the difference between the square root of 73 and the square root of 67 is .358650 with 358 being the value of Mashiach . Moreover, the sum of the integers through 73 (or 2701) less the sum of the integers through 67 (or 2278) plus the kolel of 1 is 424, the gematria value of Mashiach Ben David . The number 70 has the numerical value of the letter Ayin , whose ordinal value is 16, the same as the Name/word Eyeh (“ איה ”), meaning where, which is rather fitting for a place called 70. This place might be opposite the place called Ein (“ אין ”), or Nothing, which according to the Zohar denotes a spiritual place also between Chochma and Binah , called Keter and/or Atzilut the highest place/ sefira of G-d. When we spell the Ayin (“ אין ”) we see the juxtaposition of the letter Ayin (70) with the letter Aleph (1).

Interestingly enough, the natural Log (LN) of 70 is 4.248, a numeric blend of 424 and 248. And 70 is further tied to the 42-letter name through the mathematical constant Pi, in that the number 9, representing the 9th sefira, Chochma can be divided by the small gematria sequence of the name (123049…) to give us 9/.123049 = 73.141594 or 70 + Pi (3.1415926) to an astonishing accuracy. For more information on the relationship of the Mem-Bet Shemot and the Torah’s first verse to Pi, Phi, Mashiach and each other you can find it in The Genesis Prayer . Of further elaboration in that same book is the significance to the Torah and creation of the value 28 or 256, which is not only the numerical value of Aaron, the Ark of the Covenant, and Devarim, the fifth of the 5 Books of Moses, but is also the spelled out form of the letter Ayin(70) “AYN YVD NVN.”

What are the 32 Paths of Wisdom?

We know from chazal that the letter aleph is broken down to two “ װ ” vavs and two “ ײ ” yuds and thus has a value or 32, which is spiritually quite significant because as R’ Chaim Vital of blessed memory, explains the greater universe is comprised of the 10 sefirot and the 32 paths between them corresponding to the 42 letters of the Mem-Bet Shemot. So it’s obviously fitting that we find a possible spiritual aleph preceding the Torah. According to the Sefer Yetzirah, this 32 connotes the 32 Paths of Wisdom, which G-d utilized in bringing the greater universe into being. And it is even more fitting that the Targum Yerushalmi translates the word Bereshit as “With Wisdom.” And since chazal says as above below, we should ask how this is reflected in the Torah and we see it reflected in the 32 Elohims in Creation, all beginning with the letter Aleph.

And the 32 Paths are indicative of the 32 times the Tetragrammaton “YHVH“ is spelled out in the Torah with an interval of 32. And why Wisdom? Because there are also 32 times that the Tetragrammaton “YHVH “ is spelled out in the Torah with an interval of 73, the value for Chochma, or Wisdom. And since Aleph is also eleph, meaning 1000, there are also 32 times that the Tetragrammaton “YHVH “ is spelled out in the Torah with an interval of 1000.

Moreover, according to the Baal Shem Tov, the Supernal Wisdom is called Aleph.

It’s also notable that the letter aleph is present in all of the first 8 words of the Torah except the 5th one, “ שמים ” Shamaim , Heaven, possibly because it’s already present there before the “ ב ” Bet.

What is the connection between the 5 Worlds and 32 Paths of Wisdom?

With the help of Aryeh Kaplan’s scholarly analysis we find a definitive mathematical link between the 5 Books of Moses, 5 worlds, 5 words, and 5 levels of existence through the 5 dimensions that make up 5-dimensional hyperspace, in that there are 32 hyperquadrants that can be defined in that hyperspace, and that moreover, they correspond to the 32 apexes found on a 5– dimensional hypercube. In other words, with 5 dimensions or levels of existence folded into a single unified design, the points of reference or juncture points that stand out are 32, or 25. Interestingly enough 32 is also equal to 21 + 22 + 23 + 24, representing the unfolding of the higher dimensions.

How does the light spread from the 32 Paths?

According to Rabbi Chaim Vital of blessed memory, Torah light spreads through squaring and so it is with the 32 paths as when we square them, 322, we get 1024 spiritual depositories or juncture points, and the Torah has exactly 1024 different word values. According to chazal, all words with the same numerical value are spiritually related since in the spirit world closeness is determined by similarity of form (partially defined by the parameters of an object’s gematria) and not physical distance.

To understand this better, we must note that while the 5 dimensional hypercube has 32 apexes, when it’s squared it becomes a 10-dimensional hypercube having 210 or 1024 apexes, which means we can conceive the Torah as a 10-dimensional hypercube with each apex having a different gematria value of ranging from 3 to 1500.

And thus as the light of the 32 Paths of Wisdom is spread throughout the Torah it is sealed in with and signified by the Torah’s first letter, Bet, and its final letter, Lamed, which together have the value 32.

How does this reflect the fractal nature of the Torah?

To be fractal, an object must keep reflecting the same dimensions or parameters no matter how deep or what level of magnitude it’s examined, and so it is with the simple dimensions that define the Torah and the expansion of the 32 paths of wisdom.

Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah speaks of mathematical factorials (i.e. 5 X 4 x 3 x 2 x 1) and the Torah often utilizes the sum of integers, such as the 7 words of the first verse reflect its 28 letters and wisdom through 7+6+5+4+3+2+1 = 28 and the sum of the integers through 73 (Chochma) equals 2701, the total value of the same verse, so it’s interesting that the sum integers through 32 squared, or 1024, is 524800 and the sum of the names of the 5 Books of the Torah is 2480.

And speaking of those 5 books, there are 28056 Heis “ה“, each of value 5, in the Torah and the natural log of 28056 is 10.24+, all relating back to the 5th dimensional hypercube.

And why was it so important that there were 28056 heis in the Torah?

Because, as detailed in The Genesis Prayer, the 28056 heis have a total value of 140280, and there are not coincidentally exactly 90,100 individual yuds (Y), heis (H), and vavs (V) in the Torah, which can combine to construct precisely 14028 Tetragrammatons (YHVH), or exactly 1/10th of the total value of the heis; and moreover, 90,100 is the exact sum of all the integers through 424, the value of Mashiach Ben David. And why did it have to work out to exactly 1/10th? Because there are two heis in each Tetragrammaton and together they total 10. There is always a deeper reason for everything in the Torah.

What is the deeper meaning of the 90,100 Tetragrammatons?

There are many, but simply, 90 is the kabbalistic value of the level value of Chochma and 100 of Keter and if the two heis representing Binah and Malchut are subtracted out, we’re left with 62044 Yuds and vavs, and 620 is the value of the word Keter, And all this means that each and every Yud, hei and vav in the Torah, no matter where they are located, works together in an invisible matrix that helps to elevate us to Chochma and Keter and bring us closer to Mashiach. It also means, that each one is additional, and like the principal of the sum of the integers so ingrained into the mathematics of the Torah, each additional letter adds power, energy and light to the pervious, and if pay close attention to them and are conscious of them, to us as well. As the Baal Shem Tov explains while commenting on Proverbs 16:15, “One should bind one’s thoughts to the light of the Ein Sof (Infinite One) that is in the letters, which is the life-giving ‘Light that is in the King’s presence.’” He further states, “This is a major rule for Torah study and prayer, and is also remedy to annul harsh judgments.”

If the 70 verses of physicality feed off the aleph (1) how does it survive?

This is like the Rabbis say in Pesikta Rabba 9:2: “A single sheep resides amongst seventy wolves. These wolves attempt daily to devour the sheep, but the Almighty saves it from their clutches.” The Aleph is constructed of an upper and lower Yud separated by a double barrier, which doesn’t permit the lower from accessing the upper, only the upper to give to the lower unilaterally and unconditionally.

In discussing the connection of aleph and eleph the Arizal mentions the connection to the “one million shield-bearers of the first world” as revealed in the Zohar, and since the value of the lower yud is 10 and that of the lower vav above it is 6, we have 106 equals one million. Moreover, the shield as in the Magen David, or Star of David, is six pointed.

How does the primordial Aleph connect with Moshe and Mashiach?

As the primordial aleph connects with Moshe, we see that we can leave the Mem of Moshe alone and convert the Shin into a Bet using the popular gematria cipher called atbash, forming a Mem-Bet (42) plus the letter Hei (5) representative of the 5 words in this verse. When use the exact same cipher sequence on the word Mashiach (“ משיח ”) we form Mem-Bet (42) plus the letters “ יח ” Yud-Chet (18) representative of the 18 letters in this verse. And the letters Hei Yud-Chet spell out the word חיה ” Chaya , the level of soul that only Moses attained. And since 5 plus 18 is 23, the same as Chaya , it’s fitting that the word seventy (“ שבעים ”) is found 23 times in the Torah.

How else does Aleph and Moshe connect?

As we’ve previously stated the aleph can also be understood as eleph, the word for 1000 and while 1000 is equivalent to 10 cubed, 103, according to the Arizal, it also has an essential connection to Hashem and Moshe, both composed of the same transposed letters. He explains that Moshe has the numerical value of 345, the same as the Name, El Shaddai, “ EL ShDY“. And when El Shadai is spelled out “EL ShDY“ and 1 is added for the kolel it has a value of 1000.

Without the kolel, El Shadai spelled out is exactly 999, or 3 times 333. And it just so happens that 999 is the value for both the Torah’s 1st and 3rd words together and its 2nd, 4th and 5th words, meaning it is repeated twice within the Torah’s first 5 words.

If the verse V’Ydber Adonai El Moshe L’emor is so important, what of the verse V’Omer Adonai El Moshe L’emor, which according to chazal is at a higher level?

While V’Ydber Adonai El Moshe L’emor needed to be repeated 70 times for us to make the full connect, the verse V’Yomer Adonai El Moshe L’emor only needs to be repeated 5 times for us to connect to the 5 worlds, etc.

What is Moses’ connection to the 42-letter Name?

We know from the Zohar that Moses was given 173 keys to the gates of Heaven and we know that this is an allusion to small gematria value (173) of the 42 letters of the Mem-Bet Shemot , which is interesting because 173 is the 42nd prime number when the 1 is included. When it’s not included it is the 41st prime, as in the 41 letters of the fully spelled out Ehyeh , another name of G-d that begins with Aleph and is known by chazal to also precede the spiritual creation of the Torah, and as in the 41 letters of the first verse of the ten utterances (commandments)—associated with the Keter, or crown, of the Torah, which just so happens to have a gematria value of 173. Moreover, the verse V’Ydber … is repeated 10 times in Shmot (Exodus) where the 10 Commandments were given.

The square root of 300, which is the value of the Shin in Mashiach and Moshe and both the gematria atbash (reversed alphabet) value of the Tetragrammaton “ “(YHVH) and the gematria milui (spelled out) value of “ אלקים ” Elohim is 17.3….

Now, the physical Torah is written on the level of Zeir Anpin as expressed in the vav of value 6 that begins the verse V’Ydber Adonai El Moshe L’emor and indeed 60% of the verses in the Torah and all but 6 columns in the Torah. And the 70 Vavs that begin V’Ydber Adonai El Moshe L’emor total 420, or 10 times 42. Also, the sum of the square roots of the 5 words in the verse is 60.60; therefore the sum of the 70 verses is 4242.2, which is interesting because the value of the word seventy “שבעים” is 422. And while the 2nd Temple was destroyed in 70 CE, the 1st Temple was destroyed in 422 BCE, both 70 and 422 being forms of the same number 70.

The numerical difference between 73 (Chochma) and 67 ( Binah ) is 6, but on the level of the upper the sefirot this is equivalent to 6000, because each expansion is on the order of 103 as opposed to Zeir Anpin where it is 102. For those that understand, this verse indicates the timing of the arrival of Mashiach.

Are there any other letters concealed before the Bet of Bereshit.

When we combine the Alef with the Mem of either Moshe or Mashiach we get “ אם ” Im as in Ima , mother , and thus Binah , the spiritual state that precedes Zeir Anpin . Appropriately enough Em (“ אם ”) can also mean female, womb and matrix, which the Torah actually is. According to the Arizal , the mem-sofit “ ם ” can be constructed of two dalets “ ד ” and two yuds” ײ ” and the aleph of two yuds and two vavs , which first of all, if we deduct out the four yuds that connect us to the Chochma spelled out level of the Tetragrammaton (“ יוד־קי־וי־קי ”) we’re left with “ ו־דוד or “and David” which brings a back to the 70 years of David and the Mashiach connection through him. Secondly, these 8 letters that comprise the primordial Aleph-mem , and can be said to represent the original 8 Kings and the world of Tohu “ תהו ” that existed before our Creation and shattered giving way to the Tree-of-life and the Torah. And thirdly, these 8 letters spell out “ י יוד יוד י ” ushering in the seed level of Chochma, and also since the dalet and yud make up the letter hei “ ה ” , they can spell “ יו יקוה ” ushering in first the masculine aspect of the Tetragrammaton and them the full complete form of it.

What is the connection between the Aleph-Mem sofit and Mashiach?

With the value of mem-sofit at 600, the two primordial letters add up to 601, which it states in Genesis is the year the flood ended and life started anew. It is also the sum of Moshe (345) and Aaron (256), the two figures associated with Mashiach. The Arizal and chazal say of Moshe: “whatever pertains to the first redeemer [Moshe] pertains to the final redeemer [Mashiach]. (Bamidbar Rabba 11:3)” and the prophesies regarding Moshe, “My servant” “also refer to the Mashiach [since] the numerical value of Shilo is the same as that of Moshe’s name,” and Shilo refers the Mashiach, as in the verse from Genesis 49:10: “…until Shiloh arrives.” And as for Aaron HaCohen, he is the Torah’s direct link to Mashiach and his arrival date, but that is an entire other article unto itself.

How can the souls of the 600,000 trace through Moshe if he was amongst them?

The transmigration of souls, according to the Zohar and the Arizal , are traced back from the 600,000 souls that received the Torah at Mt Sinai, through the 70 family members of Jacob, through his 12 sons, through the 3 Patriarchs and through Adam, which forms the equation 1/(600,000/70/12/3) = .0042, or simply 42. So with Moses primordially aligned with the Mem-Bet Shemot (42-letter Name) it’s apparent why he was able to unify the 600,000 Jewish souls long enough to receive the Torah and why to disseminate it he needed the 70 elders. Incidentally, he was advised in this, by Ytro “ יתרו , whose numerical value was 616, the same as “The Torah.”

We can understand now the Arizal’s commentary that “namely, that the entire generation of the desert, six hundred thousand souls, were all soul-sparks who were derived from the source of Moses’ soul, which was the source of all of them.”

We’re not suggesting, G-d forbid, that anyone should add an aleph before the Torah, only that there is a spiritual one present there at all times. And as we trace the soul root of the 600,000 Israelites we note that Adam begins with Aleph and is followed by dam , blood, so it can be understood as the blood of aleph , or alternatively, mem sofit from aleph , suggestive of our primordial Aleph-mem connection above and since mem sofit —which spiritually denotes pregnancy–has a value of 600, it’s also the 600 souls from Aleph (1) or 600 times 1000 ( eleph ), 600,000. And as for the letter dalet in Adam, there are exactly 7032 of them in the Torah, a possible reference to the 70 verses, etc and the Aleph of value 32 to which they connect.

If all the Jewish souls traced through Moshe, what of Abraham and Adam?

And with the aleph preceding the Bet, the Torah spiritually begins with aleph-bet-resh as in the name Abraham (248), leaving the hei –mem sofit (“the mem ”) as in the hei and mem of Moshe or simply the mem sofit from the name Abram. The hei –mem from Abraham, of numerical value 45, is the same as Adam, completing the scenario of connected Abraham to creation by showing us the direct link from Adam. We further know from the Arizal that the 45 of Adam, and as we’ve just shown, Abraham, is a direct reference to the spelled out aspect of the Tetragrammaton on the level of Mah , or Zeir Anpin . It is thus understandable that the Zohar and Torah says that man was created in the image of Elohim (“ אלקים ”) and that it is written in Devarim 14:1 “You are sons to G-d your Elohim,” since the outer Aleph and Mem-sofit form mother/womb and are primordial as explained above and the inner Lamed-Hei-Yud להי ” have a combined value of 45 as in Adam, man.

It should be noted that while the aleph through the 32 paths connotes space in the spiritual sense, “ מ mem of value 40, connotes time in the Torah, as every critical phase of the Torah lasted for either 40 days or years, which on a certain level of understanding is synonymous.

And as for that dalet in Adam, it was passed on to Yehuda, whose name is a compilation of the Tetragrammaton and the letter dalet and whose name is found 42 times in the Torah without prefixes.

So exactly where and what is the place of 70?

Since we know it’s between Binah and Chochma and opposite Keter in the tree-of-life, which can be visualized as two stacked cubes tiled downward to expose the uppermost face of the upper cube, then the diamond face of the upper cube his 61 as its apex for “ אין Eyn and Keter, 73 ( Chochma ) as the right point, 67 ( Binah ), as the left one and 70 is the bottommost one, or Daat (“ דעת ”), which has the letter “ ע Ayin (70) as its central letter and is where the 70 sefirot of Zeir Anpin originate.

Keter/Ein 61

Binah 67      73 Chochma

70 Daat

What is the connection of Keter/Ein to the Torah?

And for those that want to understand better the relationship between Ein and Keter and the place of the Torah we have only to look at “ אין Ein (61) less “ אמ Em (41) equals 20, Esryim (“ עשרים ”) of numerical value 620, the same as Keter —the reason according to the Arizal that a sukka” סכה ” has a limit of 20 cubits in height—and the quantitative value of all the words, letters, and verses of the Torah added together is 6252 with 625 being the value of “ הכתר H’Keter , “The Crown,” and since, as Rabbi Chaim Vital of blessed memory, explains, “all Torah light spreads through squaring” we can see from where the fountain spreads.

We know that the first verse of the Torah has 28 letters and 28 is the value of the word for unification, and that the first verse is the unification point between the Torah and the upper words. We also know the wisdom is spread through the Torah as described above and that the value of those 28 letters is 2701 and moreover that 2701 is the sum of all the integers through 73, which is the value of Chochma, wisdom. We further note that, as R’ Chaim Vital has pointed out, Torah light is spread through squaring, and in particular the squaring of the individual letters in a word, so when the phrase Ten Sefirot of Nothingness “Y EYN” of Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah, representing the entirety of primordial existence, works out to 102 + 12 + 102 + 502 or 2701, we see the how the linkage to the upper words is established for us.

The hidden Samech:

It goes beyond the comprehension of our discussion, but for those that understand, the 60 represented by the letter, Samech (“ ס ”) is found in the center of them all (within the cube), and if you calculate the difference between each of the four points and the number 60, they will add up to 31 ( “ אל ‘ ) G-d, and 31 plus 60 is 91 the unification of the Tetragrammaton and its spoken ( Malchut ) equivalent Adonai, the juncture of the 70 sefirot of Zeir Anpin with the upper worlds. This place of 60, which can be thought of as a vessel, (“ כלי ”) of numerical value 60, is controlled by the Name (“ סאל ”) of numerical value 91.

Keter/Ein 61

Binah 67     60       73 Chochma

70 Daat

Mt Sinai?

To complete our discussion, the value of the spelled out letter “ ע Ayin (70) is 130, the same as Sinai and סולם (ladder)—as in the ladder of Jacob—both of which begin with Samech and on a certain level of understanding are synonymous with each other and with Zeir Anpin and the Shem Mem-bet, all connections from our world to the spiritual realm.

The two parts of the Crown:

And if we ask where the primordial mem-sofit of the Em (“ אם ”) before the Torah fit in all this, we must note that its value is both 40 and 600 and while 60 less 40 equals 20 ( keter, “ כתר ” ), there are two parts to the crown, the large round base and the crowning ornament or jewel represented by 600 and 20, or mem-sofit and the endless, keter of keter . It’s endless because 20, Esryim (“ עשרים ”) of numerical value 620, will always give us another Keter . It’s not coincidental that 600 also forms the base for 611, Torah: 612 Brit /covenant; 613, the mizvot /precepts: 616, “ התורה H’Torah ; and 618, which among other things is representative of .61803399, phi, the primordial constant that not only helps create the fractal nature of the Torah and our universe, but controls all spiraling growth in the universe. And what is the value of 20, it’s the value of the spelled out letter Yud (“ יוד ”), the tip of which we know from the Arizal is where keter is located. And do not think for a moment that any of this is coincidence or that there being 62 yuds , totally 620 (Keter) in the 10 Commandments, or that Moses’s pure name (“ משה ”) being mentioned 616 times in “the Torah” of value 616 is coincidence, or the Moses’s name permutes into Hashem “ השמ ” , “The Name,” G-d. To continue with the explanation of the Arizal, 20 is also the value of the letter Caf (“ כ ”), which in starting off the word Keter (CTR), is representative of it and thus considered Keter in its own right. Another reason the Arizal gives that caf is really keter is that Caf is spelled Caf-Pe (“ כפ ”) and those two letters add up to 100, synonymous with Keter . Interestingly, when we use the Pe sofit , they add up to 820, the same as the famous Torah verse that Hillel, of blessed memory, said encapsulated the entire Torah, “Love they neighbor as thyself.” Moreover, if we explain the word Keter (“ כתר ”), we see that it too is split into the value 20 for Caf and 600 for Tav and Resh as in the word, Torah (“ תורה ”), which we know is comprised of the Tav-Resh of Keter and the Vav-Hei of the Tetragrammaton (“ יקוק ”), but this leads to a much longer and deeper discussion.

So the Aleph precedes the Torah and gives rise to the Aleph-bet , the Names of G-d and the Mem (M), which also precedes the Torah, and which combines with the first Bet (B) in the Torah to form the Mem-Bet Shemot , the 42-letter Name, which gave rise to Creation and the rest of the Torah.

Keter 61

Binah 67    60 -40     73 Chochma

70 Daat

And for those that understand the mem of value 40 compliments the Samech of value 60, making 100, also considered keter. And just as we calculated with the letter Samech , the total difference between the values of the four cardinal points and value of the mem (40) is 101, which is the value of the Archangel Michael, synonymous with protection. It’s also the value of one of the Names of the 72 triplets, NNE, and along with the primordial Aleph this is one of the secrets to the two verses contained between the two backwards facing nuns that many chazal describe as a separate book of the Torah within pasha Behalotcha..

And just as we calculated with the letter mem , the total difference between the values of the four cardinal points and value of the mem-sofit (600) is 2669, which when we add the 32 for the Aleph and/or the 32 Paths of Wisdom, we get 2701, the value of the Torah’s first verse. None of these calculations are meant to show how the letters, or the Torah, are generated in a mathematical sense; they are meant to be used as a spiritual blueprint to the organization and processing of the universe and how it interacts with the Torah and our world.

The Origin of the Shin of Moshe and Mashiach:

The primordial connection to the upper 3 sefirot is made by the letter Shin “ש” in that the sum of the standard value of Ein, Chochma and Binah plus their respective 3 ordinal values plus the kolel of 6 is 300, the same as that of the letter Shin “ש.” With the Shin located just above yet behind the Aleph, which itself is just before the Mem, we can now understand Abraham’s Sefer Yetzirah, in which he explains that the after the creation of the ten sefirot from Nothingness, he created the 3 doubles, Aleph, Mem, Shin “” beginning with the Aleph, representing the 32 paths, as explained above.

The excerpts below are courtesy of Aryeh Kaplan’s wonderful translation and explanations of the Sefer Yetzirah (The Book of Creation) published by Samuel Weiser Inc.:

“With 32 mystical paths of Wisdom

engraved Yah…”

“And he created His Universe

with three books (Sepharim),

with text (Sepher)

with number (Sephar)

and with communication (Sippur)…

“Ten Sefirot of Nothingness

And 22 Foundation Letters:

Three Mothers

Seven Doubles

And twelve Elementals…”

“These are the 10 Sefirot of Nothingness:

The Breath of the Living God

Breath from Breath

Water from Breath

Fire from Water

Up, down, East West, North, South…”

“Three Mothers: Aleph, Mem, Shin “”

A great, mystical secret

Covered and sealed with six rings

And from them emanated air, water and fire

And from them are born Fathers.

And from Fathers, descendents.”

“Three Mothers, AMSh “”

in the Universe are air, water, fire.

Heavan was created from fire

Earth was created from water

And air from Breath decides between them….”

If these are the upper 3 sefirot how do they connect to the Torah and physicality?

The first of the 7 doubles described by Abraham and corresponding to the 7 lower sefirot of the unified Zeir Anpin and Malchut is Bet “”, the first letter of the Torah and the place where our physicality and indeed, reality, begins to take form.

How do the Three doubles connect with the 42-Letter Name and physicality?

If we add the numerical value primordial Samech, the Ayin of Daat, and the Aleph, Mem, Shin as discussed above, we get 471, the same as the sum of the first letters of each of the seven lines of the 42-letter Name, which collectively represent the seed level of each of the 7 sefirot from Chesed to Malchut, and the drawing of light in our world and lives. And in case we were to think this is a coincidence, the last letter in each of the 7 lines sums up to 2480, the same as that of actual Five Books of Torah (913, 746, 317, 248, 256), whose average value is 496, the same as that of Malchut.

How is the Connection spelled out?

The primordial doubles Aleph, Mem, Shin are followed by the Torah’s first two letters Bet Resh. When we separate the Primordial doubles, Mem-Shin from the from the hei and the Yud-Chet from Moshe (Mem-Shin- Hei) and Mashiach (Mem-Shin-Yud -Chet) respectively, and combine them with the Bet-Resh of Bereshit, we get Bet-resh-yud-chet-hei, which spells out the word Escape in Hebrew, but more significantly, when we permute these 5 letters, we get chet-bet-yud-resh-hei, which translates to “Connection.” And in connection we find redemption. And this Connection allows us to Escape the reality of our mundane world and reach the spiritual one.

The Mystery of the 600,000 letters Solved. The choice: Programmer of Programmee.

There has been a great mystery in Kabbalah and Judaic studies for millennium. The Zohar and chazal clearly state in many places that there are 600,000 letters in the Torah, but just as clearly if you count them, there are only 304,805 actual letters. Many people have posited that they were counting the white fire between the letters, or duplicating the letters by counting their upper world reflections and other theories, but none of these calculations ever came close enough to 600,000 to satisfy anyone, so the mystery persists. Or does it?

The first thing we need to understand is that the letters are already upper world manifestations (black fire) in our world and that their meaning/essence is as hard to actually grasp as is a fleeting inspiration drifting down from keter and chochma–you may have it one second and lost it the next. But it is essential that grasp and understand the letters as best we can.

But why do we really need to understand the letters when we already understand the words?

We can all understand, especially with the guidance of our spiritual rabbis, past and present, the meaning of the words, so why look any deeper to the letters? The answer is the same as with your computer programs. You can email and IM your friends and colleagues and play all sorts of great games on your computer, but unless you know the programming code you can’t create programs themselves, and as any kabbalist, spiritual teacher, theologian, and most rabbis and Torah scholars will tell you, our purpose is to be more like the Creator, not just his recipient.

When you analyze how a program was created, you gain insight into how the programmer thinks, into how his mind works, and so it is with the programming tools of the Torah (which incidentally are mimicked in the technology of all our prayers). These tools are the patterns and algorithms used to create what we call words, verses, paragraphs and the chapters of the Torah. And the building blocks, as Abraham explained to us in the Sefer Yetzirah, are the 22 Hebrew letters. He further explained that they should be counted, measured, permuted and studied.

So we can either spend our time sending email to our friends and colleagues, or learn about who enabled us with the ability to have friends and colleagues in the first place. Yes, we are supposed to do our spiritual work in this world with those people, but if you have the merit to understand more, you have the obligation to those very people to do so. You must be their channel. You also have the obligation to yourself to be more like the Creator, because the more you understand about how He thinks, the more that gets revealed to you about how the universe really works. You can see the email on your screen, or look deeper and see the world for the illusion that it really is.

Every bit of technology that gets revealed comes with a gift. It comes with additional understanding to be sure, but it also comes with the means to bridge Heaven and Earth, to change your reality, to help people, to improve the world of tikun, and for you to do your part in bringing about the arrival of H’Mashiach.

The choice is yours–it always has been: To be a programmer or to be programmed.

As we draw within a short few years of the programmed date for the arrival of the messiah and Mashiach consciousness, the Lord is fulfilling his promises of revealing all the knowledge to us. Thus each one of us will have been given the tools to have done his part in bringing about the geula, the final redemption. On the flip side, no one will be able to say that they weren’t given the opportunity and had chosen accordingly. There will be a great split (schism) accompanying the time of Mashiach and there will be two different worlds afterwards. And we’ll each be given the opportunity to prove which world we belong in, for that is why we were born in this generation.

For that reason, it’s time to reveal the 600,000 letters, which we know from chazal connect with the 600,000 Jewish souls that received the Torah 66.6 jubilee years ago at Mt Sinai, and for a lack of belief of a mere 6 hours lost the opportunity to know immortality on the heavenly scale. It’s said that we all have a letter in the Torah, now we know it is our root to Heaven. It is also our route.

The answer to the riddle of the 600,000 letters is quite simple, which in and of itself explains why it must have been concealed from chazal until now. If the 22 plus 5 final Hebrew letters are broken down into their correct 50 composite parts (letters) the answer becomes clear. But first, we should note that when we break down a composite letter into the letter elements that formed it, we’re going one step deeper into the mind of the Creator. For example, the mem is written (created) by combining a caf and a vav and placing them in an exact juxtaposed position. We know that Caf-vav of numerical value 26 is a direct reference to the Tetragrammaton, (YHVH) and the ordinal value of Caf-vav is 17, that of tov, meaning good, so just having this little bit of programming knowledge brings new meaning to every word you see and read containing the letter mem.

The next point we need to know is that there being 50 essential letters (composite parts) is no accident. We know from chazal that 50 connects to Binah (the upper sefira of understanding) and that the Torah makes a very distinctive point to tell us to count the jubilee years, each of which is 50 years long.

Once we multiply the 27 letters, individually broken down into 50 parts by the number of times each letter occurs in the Torah, we get a total of 599592 letters, or exactly (600,000408) as shown in the chart below:

So why not exactly 600,000 letters, which would show show us perfection? Because we already know G-d is perfect and what He wants is for us to understand his thought process, the underpinnings of the universe, and then realize how perfect the universe is.

So why exactly 408 letters shy of perfection (600,000) as we understand it. Since 60% of the verses in the Torah begin with the letter vav of numerical value 6 and all but 6 columns begin with the standard letter vav (6) and since the letter vav represents Zeir Anpin, the connection to Heaven, and thus represents the link to the upper sefirot, let’s see what happens if these 408 letters were all vavs, and 408 x 6 = 2448. And if you recall from The Divine Calendar or from your own Biblical studies, 2448 was the year of the Exodus from Egypt and the reception of the Torah at Mt Sinai.

Now, if we’ve learned any insight into the thought process of Hashem, it is that everything has multiple correct meanings and every bit of technology works overtime to delineate multiple story lines for us, multiple opportunities and streams of knowledge for us.  One of those streams leads us to the realization that the 50 component letters led us to (600,000 – 408) which led us to 408 x 6 = 2448 HC and that in turn leads us to 2448 + 50 (jubilee year) X 66.6 = 5778, the year prophesied for the arrival of H’Mashiach.

The Zohar explains this connection to the jubilee year and to 408 in Toldot 8:68., in referring to Vayikra 25:13, “In the year of this Yovel, you shall return every man to his possessions, when this (h’zot) shall be finished. The numerical value of hazot is 5408.”

According to the Zohar, the 6 directions/extremities of Heaven measures 600,000 parasangs, so the 408 could also represent a space, but that’s just a thought to ponder. What we do know is that the highest word value in the Torah is the word from Devarim 7:3 (shall marry, TChTTN) of numerical value 1500, but when we use the 5 final letters the highest word value is from Bamidbar 16:13 (you shall rule, TShTRR) and it is 1908 and interestingly enough 19081500 = 408.

Now, 1908 is not only 110 (the numerical value of nes, miracle) years earlier than 2018, which in the Hebrew calendar was the date of the Covenant of Abraham and in the Western (Gregorian) calendar is the year prophesied for the arrival of H’Mashiach (5778 HC), but 600,000/1908 = 314.465408… with 314 being Pi, Shin-dalet-Yud (Shaddai) and Mettatron, the archangel (and a central reference point of Bereshit , as per all the revelations in The Genesis Prayer. And if we wanted to examine this deeper, we could say that 46 in 314.465408 is Me’ah, the measure of the cubit (a whole secret unto itself for later posts) and that 5408 in 314.465408 is 370 years before 5778 and we know from the Arizal how important 370 is in conjunction with the 370 lights of Arich Anpin.

As far fetched as this seems, the Zohar in Toldot 8:68, tells us in explanation of the Bible codes that the word H’zot defines the arrival of Mashiach and then 40 years later the resurrection of the dead, but I’ll expand on that in a separate post and it goes on to explain that the reason for this is that with the He of h’zot, the word value becomes 5408, as in the year 5408. What they didn’t say was that the small gematria of h’zot is 5718 and is we add the cholam for forgiveness to the alef, we get 5778, the prophesied date for H’mashiach and the geula.

Meanwhile 600,000/1500 = 400, signifying an end by the value of the letter Tav (400). And according to chazal, in the end of days there will be a period of 8 years in which in H’Mashiach will have to pass through in order to achieve the brit, covenant in 5778. Obviously, this is the same process as the brit milah for the newborns.

The value 408 is also the value of the word, Zot (TzET), meaning “that” in the feminine. According to the Zohar, Zot is a code word for the Messiah, It also signifies Malchut, our world of receiving, which is why when we lift the Torah, we recite V’Zot H’Torah, because the 408 (the malchut) is not part of the Torah and must be added to it to complete it. Also, by coupling it with Vav, representing the 6 sefirot of Zeir Anpin, it’s yet another indication that 6 x 408 = 2448, as explained above. Moreover, the numerical value of Zot plus H’Torah is 408 + 616 = 1024 = 32 squared, or the 32-Paths of Wisdom (the tree-of-life_ squared. And we know from R’ Chaim Vital of blessed memory that all Torah light is spread by squaring. The value 1024 is also the total number of different word values in the Torah, of which 1500 was the highest. It is also 2 raised to the power of 10 (sefirot, dimensions).

But since we know from the revelations about the verses of Vayera, Bereshit 2018 and 21:1 made in previous posts and from the revelations in the book Nothing is Random in the Universe that there is a split in the time frame from before 2018 to after 2019 is it really a surprise to find out that the square root of 408 is 20.19…?

And how perfect is it that when we take the complete value of each of the 27 letters (standard plus ordinal and the complete value of the 50 composite letters that make up those 27 letters we get a total valuation for the alef-bet of 10386, which works out to the number of net actual rows in the Torah (248 columns x 42 rows less the blank lines) and for the (600,000 – 408) composite letters in the Torah that this gives an average of 57.73 letters per line. 600,000/10386 would have given us and even closer date of 57.77, so maybe that 408 represents a space that we have to fill to overcome the gap between ourselves and Mashiach consciousness.

Is it a fear, as the word Chat (ChT) of numerical value 408 would indicate? Perhaps, to know that we must all look inside. The Torah and the letters provide us with the clues and the technology, but we must do the work. That is why we were born in this generation. It is a great merit; let’s take advantage of it.

And speaking of Mashiach, if we take those 10386 full complete values individually and multiply them by the occurrences of their corresponding 27 letters in the Torah and then take their square roots (since R’ Chaim Vittal of blessed memory has revealed to us that all Torah light is spread through squaring) the 27 (50) letters’ square roots sum to 35797.9359, which is only a tiny .005766% off an exact 35800, or 358 x 100 (keter), with 358 being the value of Mashiach. What do we gave to fear?

And regarding the 600,000 Jewish souls at Sinai in 2448, we know from the Arizal that it was no accident for the Jewish soul root can be traced from the 600,000 to the 70 members of Jacob’s family who entered Egypt to his 12 sons to the 3 Patriarchs and back to Adam, and:

One soul divided by (600000/12/70/3) = .0042 or simply 42, as in the Shem mem-bet, at the very root of our soul. And as preposterous as this may seem 1/(600000/12/70/3) = 238.095, which is the exact the atomic weight of Uranium 238.

1/(600,000/70/12/3) = 238.095

and

1/238.095 = .0042

or simply

42

as in the Shem Mem-Bet
