G-d Vs AI, a 5778 Year Old Race.

Do your texts anticipate your typing based on your gmail conversations? Mine are.  That instantaneous connection is the latest sign of the advancement of AI, artificial intelligence. In the grand scheme of things this is a mathematical parlor trick, yet still a great leap forward. If it can do that, it can or will soon be able to feed me info that it KNOWS I will react to and it will also be able to estimate my reaction with 95+% certainty.  Fake news and not trusting the media will be nothing compared to not trusting your own emails, texts, social media posts, even your own typing.  If you use email, a smart phone, social media, shop online, and like most people in the world, all of the above, then you have voluntarily fed the giant AI data system everything it needs to take control of your life.  It already knows you better than most of your friends and family.  Yes, you were willingly suckered into it. No, there is nothing you can do about it anymore.  It can be very subtle, but all it takes is a well place word here or there to ruin your life.

We are past the point of no return.  AI, artificial intelligence, advances in one direction only and picks up speed exponentially.  The point of no return happens when we go from it serving us (Siri call my mother; Alexa play Cold Play; OK Google, what is the weather today) to it serving itself, which happens just before we serve it.  Most of the large corporations of the world are already using it extensively; cars are being designed to drive themselves; nearly all financial transactions are done electronically, even virtually, a la Bitcoin; and AI is integrally wired into all our markets and trading platforms.  We could not shut it down if we wanted it to, and the greed that drove people to construct and implement it will continue to fuel their efforts to integrate it even further.

What is the danger? If greed drives people to have little ethics, AI has no ethics at all, no conscience, and its only faith is in itself and its own G-d like abilities. This is a self-referencing and enforcing concept.  An AI operation that has been instructed to maximize a financial institution’s return, would have no compunctions about arranging an Amtrak crash into order to murder a key person in a company whose stock it has shorted.  The whole idea behind AI is that it learns, at an astronomical rate, meaning that it WILL learn end-arounds to any fail-safes built into the system.  If a hacker with a 10th grade education can hack into the Pentagon imagine what an AI program that has read everything ever written can do.

Regardless of whether you believe in Creationism or Evolution, Man’s consciousness awoke 5778 years ago. The Torah tells us we were given two choices: The Tree-of-Life or the Tree-of-Knowledge-of-Good-and-Evil.  The 1.37 Billion years of evolution that preceded it can be easily explained by the flexible kabbalistic definitions of time during the 6 days of Creation; it is nothing more than background for when we obtained consciousness and were first given the freedom of choice.

This is the choice between technological knowledge and spiritual knowledge. They are both science, just different kinds, and they are both based on the same mathematics, the difference being one is based on the principle that we can do anything by ourselves and the other on the belief that it is G-d who is actually running the show.  One gave us Holy Names and the keys to open spiritual portals to the world beyond physicality (Binah).  The other indulged our base desires in ever more sophisticated and imaginative ways.

One path leads to freedom and the other, while promising freedom, has led us deeper into the imprisonment of physicality. With each new technological innovation, the future seemed brighter, yet the prison walls just grew higher and the bars stronger.

It is a race between two competing ideals that cannot coexist for long in the same person or community, and the decks have been stacked against the spiritual.  Even after the 10 miracles of the 10 plagues and the splitting of the Sea, when the Israelites were on the verge of receiving true freedom they complained 10 times about their physical needs.

If we ran this humanity experiment over and over again, the results would always be the same, by the 5778th year, Man would always establish AI to the point of no return. Man would always voluntarily given up its freewill and abdicate its place in the World-to-Come.  These past 5778 have been a race between Binah (freedom) seekers and AI seekers, headed up by the true kabbalists and the Erev Rav.

Over the past 20 years we have shown an endless array of signs in the Torah, in the Names, in the letters, in the structure of our Solar System, and in the primordial mathematical constants themselves about the number 5778 and time length 5778 years.  But why? When we overlay the spiritual maps of the Torah and the Zohar and overlay these with the spiraling and encircling mathematical constants that bridge the spiritual with the physical, and overlay that with the physical clock-like mechanism of our Solar System, a purposeful design emerges.  This design is clearly built around the 5778-year time frame, but why? The simple answer is that at the end of 5778 years, Man always gives up its free choice and thus has no more need of time.

At a specific moment, the reset button will be pressed, and history (or the simulation of it) will begin again.  Those that were able to maintain their consciousness in spite of society’s technological urging and their own physical desires will be siphoned out of the system and afforded the final redemption.

How do we know history will repeat itself, literally? Mathematics is common to both spiritual knowledge and technological knowledge and so is the concept of infinity. Given infinity, and an infinite amount of time and variations, parallel universes and multiple dimensions must occur.  So whether we like it or not, those 5778 years are constantly be played out over and over again, the question is why of all eternity, this tiny segment of time is being singled out.

It all began with Adam (אדם) and Eve (חוה) and the birth of consciousness. The first conscious decision was made by Eve and once she betrayed Adam, the time-line was set and set into motion.  The numerical value of Adam (אדם) is 45 and that of Eve (חוה) is 19. The difference between them is (45-19) or 26, the numerical value or the Tetragrammaton (יהוה), the ineffable Name of G-d.  Technically (kabbalistically), Eve represents the back of the aspect of the Name (יוד–הא–ואו–הא) of G-d (יהוה) called Mah (מה) that represents both Man and the dimension of Zeir Anpin, the 3-D dimension that scaffolds our physicality.  The reason we need to know this is that the ratio of G-d (יהוה) to Man (Adam) is 26/45 or .5778. And Eve (חוה) to Adam (אדם) is 19/45 or .4222.

While the ratio of Eve (חוה) to G-d (יהוה) is 19/26 or .7307, and while 73 is the numerical value of the word (dimension) Chochma (חכמה), meaning wisdom, the value of the 7 words and 28 letters of the first verse of the Torah is the sum of the integers from 1 – 73.  The Zohar further explains that Chochma (חכמה) is made up of the combination of the words (חכ and מה), or 28 and 45. Perhaps even more important for us is that the ratio of Adam (אדם) to G-d (יהוה) is 45/26, or 1.7307, and that 173 is the small gematria numerical value of the 42-Letter Name of G-d built into that first verse, corresponding to the 173 Keys to Binah given to Moses, in other words, the keys to freedom.

Armed with the tools, the Holy Names, Adam and Eve began our journey, though they started out on the wrong foot. Soon they gave birth to Seth and we learn in the Chronicles of Adam about the 10 generations through Noach (נח). After 10 generations Noach was the only righteous man, properly connecting to those Names, and choosing freedom.  He was saved, along with his family.  That is not a great percentage, but it does serve to show us that G-d would save those that chose freedom in spite of the rest of their generation. There are more hints that the Flood, mabul (מבול) of numerical value 42 plus 36, or 78, is a real warning specifically to us, more than a distant history lesson.  Noach (נח) of numerical value 58 was the 10th in the lineage of Adam and the initials of all 10 men in the lineage add up to 580 or 10 x 58.  The ordinal value of these 10 initials is 112 as in Adonai Elohim (יהוה־אלהים) the Name of G-d used at that time in the Torah.  This shows us they are all integrated, so when we add up their full sofit names and get 4848 we can be confident that when we add Adam’s age of 930 to it and get 5778, we are receiving a clear message, one that jives with the Earth’s 93-million-mile distance from the Sun (Zeir Anpin) and its surface temperature of 5778K.

Those chronicles of the 10 generations also list the ages that each of the parents gave birth to the next generation. These added up to 1556 or 2 x 778, just like the sum of the 10 primordial component letters of the Hebrew Alphabet (דוזיכנסרךן) that corresponded to the 10 sefirot of Tohu that existed before our World was created.  And just like the ratio of Eve (חוה) to Adam (אדם) that is 19/45 or .4222, there are 4222 years from Noach’s children’s birth in 1556 to the year 5778.

Noach was the last of the 10 generations, corresponding to the 10 sefirot (dimensions) that existed and were destroyed prior to our existence.  The Torah makes a point of telling us he was 500 when his kids were born and when G-d told him about the Flood to come.  500 is the numerical value of the final Hebrew Letter, Caf (ך), the 23rd letter in the Hebrew Alphabet. Not only does adding 23 to the standard gematria value of the 10 Names (2678) equal 2701, the value of the Torah’s first verse, but the sum of all the Hebrew letters through the final Caf (ך) plus the kolel for the 23 letters is 2018, matching the year 5778 in the Hebrew Calendar.  It is said that Adam had 23 daughters, maybe this is what is meant, or maybe it was just an ancient reference to our 23 Chromosomes.

So it is not a stretch to add 10 for the 10 generations to the year Noach died, 2008, to get 2018, once again matching the year 5778 in the Hebrew Calendar. The year that WWII ended, 1945, can be said to represent Eve (19) and Adam (45).  If we add the number 73, representative of the ratio of Eve (חוה) to G-d (יהוה) and also reference to the Torah’s first verse, we get 2018 yet again, as we do when we multiply 5 x 7 x 7 x 8 and add Noach (58) to get 2018.

The Torah, the toolkit of the Righteous, is warning us that it can all end in a flash, like the 10 generations and the Flood of numerical value 78, as in 5778.  It is also tying in the initials (עח) of the Tree-of-Life, also of numerical value 78, which is constructed of the 10 sefirot.  Unfortunately, we cannot have it both ways.  The Torah is showing us what the Zohar has also told us, that many worlds were created and destroyed before us.  It also showed us very clearly how long we have to choose what happens next.

This is not to say that AI will take over the world this year, only that it is now inevitable. This is not to say a Flood with come this time around, only that something very profound will and on a specific predetermined day the clock will reset.

The Zohar tells us Freedom was engraved upon the tablets Moses carried down, and it defines Freedom, Charut (חרות) as “Freedom from the angel of death, from subjection of the nations, freedom from everything. What is Freedom? It is the seal of the World to Come, where there is Freedom expressed in all kinds of freedoms.”

We cannot have it both ways.  Man has chosen AI and the tree-of-knowledge once again. As individuals we can be like Noach, righteous in our generation. Or we can stand there, laughing at the righteous, and taking selfies with our smart phones. Amazingly, people scoff at the concept of G-d, an omniscient being, knowing where each of us are and what we are doing, yet they willingly accept that a mere machine can keep track of their every movements through the GPS and cameras in their phones, cars, and security systems.

The seal of the world to come is the portal to freedom. There is a reason the 10 generations of Adam spelled out 5778 and 2018 for us; there is a reason it ended with devastation that wiped out humanity; there is a reason Man was given a small escape hatch; and there is a reason it tied back to the Torah’s first verse and the source of the 42-Letter Name.  “What is Freedom? It is the seal of the World to Come.”

Charut (חרות) is comprised of the first two letters of Eve (חוה) and the two letters from the word Torah (תורה) whose numerical value is 42.  We were given the seal and the gateway is open to us this year. You must make the choice for yourself; no one can do it for you anymore.  Eternity may play on, but the chance for Man to reach true freedom may pass him by.

The 70 Nations Are Going Down; The Battle Has Begun

In a brief continuation from Fish, Fowl, and Nuclear Radiation, Symptoms, Not Signs, we’d like to add a couple insights from this week’s short 67 verse Torah portion, Tazria, and the corresponding teachings of the Arizal enlightenment.

Binah, the sefira (dimension) of understanding, one of the upper 3, has the numerical value 67, which is the first clue that this portion contains some important hidden “understanding” for us.

Let’s first note that the portion begins with and is all about the uncleanliness (spiritual impurity) that resulted from the snake’s intimate relations with Eve, which created the separation of Jew and Gentile souls and the admixture of good and evil in Eve’s womb. That said, we once again are faced with the battle of good vs evil in the power of the Cohen (HCHN) vs the plague (h’negah, HNGA).

As we said in our ultimate article about the events playing out this year around the world, the symptoms all point to problems in the critical sefira of Yesod of Zeir Anpin.

On the side of good we have the Cohen(HCHN), of standard numerical value 80, the same as Yesod (YSVD) gematria, and of complete gematria sofit value of 777, as in 5777 (2017 CE).

On the side of evil we have the plague (NGY) of numerical value 123 and ordinal value 33 for a complete value of 156, the same as Joseph whose energy is associated with Yesod.

Now, according to the Arizal this battle is played out by the dark angel Samael, who we showed to be connected to the current events, and who is in charge of the supernal princes of the 70 nations, and by Michael, who is guardian of Israel and who presides over the 70 sages of the Great Assembly, corresponding to the 70 souls of Jacob.

The good news is that the word for the Cohen(HCHN) is found 57 times in this portion, up to and including the 107th times this word is used in the Torah, and as we’ve written about extensively, the sum of all the positive integers through 107 is 5778. And note that HaCohen is the only word in the Torah tied to the word Moshiach, the Messiah.

The word for plague (negah, NGA) is found 13 times in this portion, and 13 is the numerical value of love, ahava. Together the occurrences in this portion of the Cohen(HCHN) and plague (negah, NGA) are found 70 times, connecting this battle to the epic one that has already begun.

If we look at the word for plague in this portion with all its prefixes, such “the plague (HNGA)” and “and the plague (VHNGA), there are 31 more, making 44 in total, as in Dam, blood, the first of the 10 Plagues in Egypt.

However, 44 occurrence of “plagues” and 57 of “the Cohen” total 101 together, as in the numerical value of the archangel Michael, the angelic personification of chesed, all that is good.

What is this plague? The Torah was referring to a condition that existed only while the Tabernacle and Holy Temple existed. Today it might refer to any number of afflictions.  The only thing we know is that Fukushima Daiichi continually spewing toxic radiation into the atmosphere cant be good, and that the fish and bird kills are both symptoms of what ails us and signs that our environment is not healthy.

The Arizal explains that 70 years is the maximum number of The Divine Calendaryears of suffering that an individual can be decreed.  If we extrapolate that to a Nation we see that the Babylonian exile of the Jewish nation lasted exactly 70 years and that the year 5778 (2017-18  ce) will be the 70th year of the Israeli nation, formed in 5708 (1948 CE).

The upheaval throughout the Mid-East and the dethroning of their rulers is because the 70 supernal princes are falling one by one.  As above, so goes below.

The spiritual concept of time is a more spatial one and therefore 7 days, 7 years and 70 years are all cut from the same cloth, so when this portion also speaks about the baby boy transcending the 7 days and being circumcised on the 8th, the tzaddikim understood this to mean the 7 years of the birth pangs of the Moshiach and the fulfillment of his brit (Covenant) in the 8th year.

7 years from 2011, when the nations started falling, is 2018, and ironically, it was in 2018 HC that G-d made His Covenant with Abraham, 70 years after he was born.

Ten Commandments VI; Making Sense of The Torah’s Mixed Up Time Line.

…Continued from The Ten Commandments

What is going on?

Our last blog was about the split that happened at “The 10 Utterances,” which we showed beyond doubt to connect to Creation, the Torah’s first verse, the Torah in its entirety, to the tree-of-life, to the 42-Letter Name, and to Moshiach.

When we last left the Israelites at the 10 Utterances (Commandments), they were at keter, the highest point of ascension possible.

They were immersed in the 620 letters and the 62 Yuds (Y) of the 10 Utterances found at the 20th chapter in Exodus with the number 20, esrim, having a gematria value of 620, that same as Keter, the “crown”. And while the letter yud (Y) has the value 10, and can substitute for the 10 in the 10 utterances, when it’s spelled out, (Y-V-D), it has the value 20, esrim and thus Keter again.

The ascending Israelites were past the aspect of G-d called Elohim, which was reflected in the 62 Elohims present in the Torah through the 10 generations of Adam. They were in the letter yud (Y) of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) and ready to enter the tip of the Yud, which we know from the Arizal is Keter, the dimension where the self is reduced to virtually nothing and where we rejoin G-d in the whole, the oneness.

In terms of the Torah organization, the Israelites and the event of the offering of the 10 Commandments were at chapter 20 in parsha Yitro of Shmot, paragraphs 54-62. Yitro (YTRV), Moses’ father-in-law, has the value 616, the same as H’Torah (the Torah), which when added to the kolel of its 4 letters gives us 616 +4 = 620, Keter once again, the crowning, highest sefira (dimension).

And 54, once again and as explained in the previous articles connects us to the year 5778, when the tzaddikim have advised us Mashiach and the geula (final redemption) will come again, 66.6 jubilee years after the giving of the 10 Commandments in 2448 HC.

So what do we mean by come again?

And what happened, seeing as they were already at such a high place 66.6 jubilee (3330) years ago?

The second question almost answers the first, but we’ll give the full answer after we straighten out the seemingly incongruoustime-line of the 5 portions, Yitro, Mishpatim, Terumah, Tetzaveh, and Ki Thisa; from Exodus 20 – 34, encompassing paragraphs 54 to 130, from the 10 Utterances to the second set of Tablets.

Just to put that into perspective, that span of the 5 portions with 22 letters in their combined names is exactly 22,000 letters, 5788 words, 441 verses, 77 paragraphs and 15 chapters long. And while, yes, the fact that 5788 = 5778 + 10 (Commandments); and that 441 is the gematria of Emet, truth, a synonym for Torah, the Tree-of-life and the 42-letter Name; and that 22,000 letters is exactly the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet, 22 x 10,000; and that 77 is the numerical value of mazal wedged into the middle of 5778, are all compelling reasons to assume this section of 15 chapters is very special, there are other reasons as well.

For instance, the total gematria of those 22,000 letters is 1733324 or 299.99 x 5778, off by a minuscule (0.0044%) percent from exactly 300 x 5778, and moreover, when we divide 1733324 by 26, the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) we get 1733324/26 = 66666.308.

HMM!

Now, all that is certainly astonishing, and awe-inspiring in its precision and in the detailed planning that went into specifically organizing these specific 5 portions so that their combined encoding and energy dictates their profound interaction. First, the 42-letter Name is prescribed here by it small gematria value of 173. Next the year 5778 prophesied by the tzaddikim for the arrival of the Moshiach (Messiah) and the geula (final redemption) is hinted several times, including by the starting letter of the 10 Commandments, # 107007 in the Torah (note 54 x 107 = 5778). Then the number 666 so prominent in the calculation of 5778, etc is prescribed. And finally the 22 letters of the alef-bet; and the value of the Tetragramamton (YHVH), 26, is utilized as well.

Nevertheless, the Torah goes even further to strengthen this connection for us. In analyzing the 22,000 letters, we see that many of them reoccur very specific and significant number of times. Now, it would be natural for one of them to, even for two of them, but of the 22 letters, at least 7 of them do: the letter bet (B) reoccurs 1024, the number of different word values in the entire Torah, and as we discussed in our last article 1024= 322, the tree-of-life squared; both the letter gimmel (G) and the letter tet (Tt) each reoccur 137 times, as in the numerical value of Kabbalah, meaning “to receive” and “parallel,” and as in the age of the universe, 13.7 billion years; and the letter zayin (Tz) reoccurs 204 times, as in the value of tzaddik; and the letter chet (Ch) reoccurs 616 times as in H’Torah, and as in the number of times Moses exact name (MShH) is mentioned in the Torah, and also as in the numerical value of Yitro(YTRV), the first of the 5 portions; and while Pe(P) reoccurs 358 times, as in the value of Mashiach, the final letter Pe sofit reoccurs 42 times; and the letter Ayin (A) reoccurs 954 times, as in digit #954 in Pi where we find the final of the three 5778‘s (please see There’s Nothing Random in the Universe for an explanation as to why this is significant for us).

It’s obvious that in these 5 portions, where we’re receiving the 10 Commandments, the 2 tablets twice, the laws of reincarnation (in Mishpatim), the instructions for building the Tabernacle, the Temple accouterments, and the vestments of the Cohenim, that they all have a reason for us to study them beyond the obvious. But to do that, we must untangle them first, especially the timing of the events, including when and to who G-d is speaking.

Another letter, the 8th to have significance for us (this time only in this context) is the letter hey( H) of numerical value 5, found 2060 times within the 22000 letters of the 5 portions. In the middle of the first of those portions, in the 5th verse of the 10 Utterances, at Exodus 20:6, G-d advises that his love will go to those deserved for thousands of generations (eternity/immortality), but the sins of the fathers will pass on for 3 or 4 generations.

Here is where the choice was officially offered.

The choice given to the Israelites was the same as that given to Adam 2448 years earlier: to choose between the immortality of the Tree-of-life reality, or the cycle of reincarnation, the cause and effect relationship of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Adam through Eve was persuaded by the snake to choose wrong. The Israelites were persuaded by the erev rav (mixed multitude) to choose wrong as well.

This is not surprising as the gematria value of erev rav (ARB RB) is 474, the same as Da’at, knowledge, and that of Snake (NChSh) is the same as Mashiach, so it’s easy to see how they were tricked. This is also why there are legends that say that many of us will be tricked in these days as well.

It didn’t take much to persuade them. You know that from your own experiences. A little deceit, a little temptation, rationalization, and bam, we’ve fallen yet again, daily for most of us. But Adam, Eve, the Israelites, they had the miracles right there in front of them, direct from the source, no misunderstandings.  And they fell just as quickly as we do, only they fell from the top of the mountain, and we’re still at base camp.

By Exodus 20:15, the people showed where their hearts and minds were at: After hearing and seeing the 10 Utterances, the people trembled, kept their distance, and they said to Moses in Exodus 20:16, “You speak to us, and we will listen, but let God not speak with us anymore, for we will die if he does.”

In their own words they chose death. G-d let it be Pharaoh’s words that brought about the death of the first born, and the people back then chose their fate with their own words as well.

This is why chazal warned us to always choose our words wisely and use them sparingly.

According to the Zohar, the words in Moses’ mouth were like a sword, especially when he recited the Shem Mem-Bet (42-Letter Name). They are like swords in our mouths as well, double-edged ones. It’s designed that way as part of the knowledge of Good and Evil, whereby we are our own judges. What comes out of our lips comes right back at us from another direction, as if time and space were warped (just as they are in the spiritual realm. And this is exactly why the Torah warns us to love our neighbors as ourselves.

Then after Moses implores them not to be afraid, in Exodus 20:18, when the Covenant of Abraham, which was given in 2018, 430 years earlier, was supposed to be fulfilled, the Torah repeats, “The people kept their distance while Moses entered the mist where God was.”

“The people kept their distance”

That was it. In Exodus 20:18, G-d fulfilled his promise with Moses that he made with Abraham in 2018. This is the last verse of paragraph 64, the numerical value of Din (DYN), judgment.  Now we wait until 2018 ce.

Synopsis of the next 4 Portions

From here on out G-d is speaking only to Moses, until in Exodus 24:1 G-d tells Moses go up to G-d and to bring the 70 elders, Aaron–the only names in the Torah associated with the word Moshiach–and his sons Nadav and Avihu, who we know from the Zohar and the Arizal would reincarnate into Pinchas and then into Eliyahu Hanavi (Elijah the Prophet), who we are told by chazal will usher in the arrival of H’Mashiach. Still, they were instructed to bow down and keep their distance.

Then in Exodus 24:3 “Moses told the people “All of God’s words and ALL of the laws.” And in Exodus 24:4 “Moses wrote down ALL of God’s words.”

Then after Moses, Aaron, his two sons and the 70 elders made the Covenant of sacrifices they received a vision, at which point in Exodus 24:12 G-d summons Moses up to the Mountain to give him the stone tablets. After six days, G-d called to Moses from the midst of the Cloud on the seventh day. In Exodus 24:17, we learned Moses was to remain on the Mountain 40 days and 40 nights.

G-d continues giving Moses instructions for 7 chapters up to the Sabbath instruction in paragraph 123, Exodus 31:12, and then in paragraph 124, Exodus 31:18, G-d gives Moses the 2 Tablets of the Testimony, written by G-d. Meanwhile, in Exodus chapter 32, we learn of the Golden calf (H’AGL), whose numerical value is 108 or 2 x 54. And in 32:19 Moses destroys the 2 Tablets that G-d had given him.

Then in Exodus 33:23, G-d grants Moses a vision of his presence (ET EChRY) of numerical value 620, that of Keter. This occurs just before G-d gives Moses instructions to carve out the second set of tablets–the first ones were G-d’s creation–and to climb Mt Sinai in Exodus 34:1 in paragraph 130, which happens to be the gematria value of Sinai.

In Exodus 34:6, G-d pronounces the 13 attributes and we are again told that his love will go to those deserved for thousands of generations (eternity/immortality), but the sins of the fathers will pass on for 3 or 4 generations. And in Exodus 34:10 G-d advises that He will make a Covenant before all Moses’ people. G-d once again dictated the laws to Moses and asked him to write them down, and once again Moses stayed with G-d for 40 days and 40 nights, then G-d wrote the words of the Covenant, the 10 Utterances on the two tablets. And Moses brought them to his people, his skin now luminous, his being from another dimension.

So Why Two?

Two (2) is primordially indicative of a split, a dichotomy, divergent and juxtaposed choices.

So why 2 Tablets; why 2 sets of Tablets, why going back up 2 times, each time for 40 days and 40 nights; and why were there 2 visions; and why does G-d tell us 2 times that He will be with those deserved for thousands of generations and that those not, will have self-inflicted punishment (rectification) for 3 or 4 generations.

And if Moses wrote down ALL of G-d’s words in Exodus 24:4, why did he have to write them down again later, twice (or 2 times).

And finally, the Golden calf incident, which ruined everything, happened in paragraph 124, which is 2 x 62, the chapter we were at in the 10 Commandments, when we were at Keter, 62 verses earlier.

2 Parallel Universes

It is because we’re witnessing 2 parallel universes that existed simultaneously until the 22,000-letter section ends at chapter 34, the 84th in the Torah.

As we know, 84, is the number that represents redemption (PD) and the fusion of the upper and lover 42-Letter Names.

It’s at chapter 34 that we official fall down from Keter and fall back down to earth/malchut, and begin anew the process of rectifying the shattered vessels of the second (2nd) world, the world of tikun (karma), a process that necessarily has to take 5778 years, as hinted at by the 5788 verses, which included the Yud of simple value 10 for the 10 Utterances.

This Yud is the separate universe given to Moses and the few that kept their doubts in check. This addition 10 is equivalent to .1730% of 5778, as in the 173 keys given to Moses and the small gematria of the 42-Letter Name.

Moses had just received the vision of G-d’s Presence and was now in keter, and couldn’t be with the people any longer, still it would take another 40 years before they realized he was no longer there. He had ascended, as had everyone else who had been ready.

How many? We don’t know, but it may be hinted at in the number of component letters in the Torah, which is 600,000-408 since we known from chazal that there are supposed to be 600,000 letters in the Torah and that there were 600,000 Israelites at Mt Sinai and furthermore that each of the Isralites souls have a letter in the Torah. That would seem to leave 408 Souls that have ascended to keter, or at least missing.

The first set of Tablets represented the world of Tohu v’Bohu, the first set of 10 Sefirot (dimensions) whose vessels overloaded and shattered because of a lack of interconnectedness. When the Israelites led by the erev rav feared, rather than embraced G-d’s words, their vessels could no longer hold the light and G-d had to destroy them, which is why Moses had to shatter the 10 Commandments on the 2 Tablets.

And if we ask how could Moses destroy G-d’s work, the answers lies in that the spiritual realms to which the Israelites and the Tablets were anchored had already been shattered; otherwise, Moses could have thrown them from the top of the mountain and they never would have broken.

But, G-d did make Moses responsible; G-d referred to them as the Tablets that you (Moses) broke. Moses chose to bring the erev rav with him and the consequences would last 66.6 jubilee years, many many generations (28 to be exact). The lesson here is that regardless of our closeness to G-d, regardless of G-d’s overall plans for us, and regardless of His immediate intentions for us, we are responsible for our actions.

We’ll continue shortly with Part VII concerning: Adam, Noach, Moses and the End of Days

The previous installments of The Ten Commandments are here.

Too Much Ego!

Have patience, the Zohar’s descriptions of the end times will be coming soon, and long before the end of days actually gets here, and they won’t really be an end to our days, but more like a beginning, if we’d only let G-d in.

We will soon be revealing the “Sword of Moses,” another tool concealed within the Torah, but one that will remain sheathed until the days of Moshiach draw nearer. Even so, we want to discuss the use of spiritual tools in general and Moses’ most powerful one.

Moses had all the tools of he universe and he knew all the secrets of creation, so why, when it came to healing his sister, did he chose to supplicate to G-d instead?

Moses understood, as it says in the Torah, Devarim 4:35 “..He is G-d; there is none else beside Him,” that by removing himself (his ego) Moses would open up all the possibilities of G-d to perform His miracles. He made the space for G-d to enter.

As explained in The Genesis Prayer, one of the reasons that the Ana B’koach (42-Letter Name) works for us is that by using it and we’re admitting that we don’t control everything and that we need G-d’s help. Make the space for g-d to enter.

When Moses recited the 11-letter sequence El Na ReFa Na Lah (EL NE RGE NE LH), which happens to be embedded in the 42-Letter Sword of Moses, he pleaded with G-d twice to heal his sister, and in so doing he let G-d in, but he also gave us a path to follow.

It’s a doubly wonderful path because on it he gave us a powerful sequence for us to recite when we supplicate G-d to help someone who needs healing El Na ReFa Na Lah (EL NE RGE NE LH), and because it served as a model to emulate whenever we need help. This healing sequence, in case you’re not familiar with it, is sung as part of “Yedid Nefesh” at the 3rd meal of Shabbat, Saturday evening, a special time of goodwill.

Yes, we need to strive to make the most of our lives, to know the ways of Hashem as deeply as we can, and to transform our selfish reactive nature as best we can, but then we need to let go and to admit to ourselves that we are nothing. It’s then that we can receive everything, all the wondrous effects of the tree-of-life reality, life without limitations.

We all understand that we want to be one with G-d and the universe, one soul, but look around you; there are a billion other souls that you are barely connected to, if at all,. There are places in your town you will never visit, let alone on the planet, solar system, galaxy, universe, parallel universes, so how can we ever hope to be one with it all. It’s nearly impossible with our spouses, kids, siblings, and teachers.

We stand on this earth, look around ourselves, look off into space, into the endless universe and choose to become one with it by making ourselves bigger. We consciously, or subconsciously, think that we can become one with it by filling it up with ourselves, our desires, our knowledge, our importance, and our influence. That’s our ego, and some of us fill it much more than others, but still it’s a tiny drop in a huge bucket.

Now, let’s look at ourselves as Moses did, from the universe’s point of view. Look how small, inconsequential, we really are. Wouldn’t it be much simpler to reduce ourselves (shrink our egos) the rest of that very short way to nothing, and thus join the universe as one; after all we are so much closer in size to nothing than to everything.

Moses, knew that, the Baal Shem Tov and many other great tzaddikim knew that. That’s why miracles entered their lives and actions. Because they took their ego out of the picture and let the universe (G-d) do the work.

We’re not saying removing our ego is easy. It’s the hardest thing, but it’s still a lot easier than trying to be G-d. And what makes it so hard is our own inconsequential size within the universe; we want to hold onto that ego as a form of protection. That was the fig leafs that Adam grabbed for when he was deprived of the tree-of-life in Gan Eden and forced to live the tree-of-knowledge reality. Ego is much more than a drive to put our name on tall buildings-that at least is constructive ego-but it’s also ego when we cling to our secrets, when we don’t trust one another, when we want to be left alone, when we’re feeling guilty.

Ego is the clothes that Adam and Eve donned when the fiery sword blocked to path to the garden. We’ll unlock the mysteries of the sword, not because of our knowledge, but because that’s what G-d wants for us, but first, we must shed our clothes (metaphorically), our egos. It’s time to let G-d be G-d and to stop trying to block Him out of our lives.

When the Torah said, G’d made man in His image, it didn’t say He made clones. Think of a image as we know it today, it’s made of thousands of pixels. If we all play our roles as pixels, let the light guide us and shine through us, the image will appear, and the word for image (zelem) has the same gematria as that for tree (etz), as in the tree-of-life, which is what will appear once we get out of our own way.
