It’s Getting Warmer!

It’s Getting Warmer. What does that mean, physically and spiritually. Whether is man-made or natural global warming makes no difference. The temperatures are rising. We’ll start off by looking at where they are going, but rather than an apocalyptic discussion of what that will mean for the coastal nations and cities, we’re going to tackle the nature of temperature itself and surprisingly how the temperature scales and modern are built into the design of the Future Holy Temple, as laid out by the Ramchal and the visions of Ezekiel.

Even before Japan declared Fukushima another Chernobyl, both NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reportedthat the global average surface temperature for 2010 had tied the record set in 2005. The analyses differ slightly; nevertheless, using the NOAA version, the average 2010 temperature was 1.12 degrees Fahrenheit above the average for the 20th century, which is 57 degrees.

At our current pace of global warming, it’s only a matter of time, maybe just 6-7 years before the average 100-year surface temperature inches up to 57.78 degrees Fahrenheit, or numerically exactly 1.00% of the Sun’s surface temperature as measured in Kelvins, 5778 K.

If 5778 (2018 CE) weren’t just around the corner(6-7 years from now) and if 5778 wasn’t the date the tzaddikim advised us the final redemption and tree-of-life reality would happen, then it could be just another cool (hot) coincident. But they are, so the special temperature confluence can’t be overlooked, which makes it even odder that the two places this global temperature increase is centered on is the Arctic Circle and Israel.

So what is temperature and what on Heaven or Earth does it have to do with the Future Holy Temple?

Temperature measures heat, a thermodynamic derivative of energy and light, and the Fahrenheit scale, created in 1724, set the freezing point for water—the molecule necessary for sustaining all life on our planet—at 32 degrees and the boiling point at 212 degrees.

The Celsius scale, created in 1744, translated that 32 degrees F to 0 degrees Celsius and that 212 degrees F to 100 degrees Celsius. And then the Kevin scale, created in 1848, further adjusted those scales so that 0 Kelvin, or absolute zero was –459.67 degrees F.

So Man took water and measured energy’s (light’s) effect on it and developed a scale, actually 3 scales, all correlated. But what did G-d do? Besides making the water and the light and man?  According to the kabbalists, He designed the universe around the structure of the Tree-of-life, which consists of 32 paths of wisdom, further broken down to 10 dimensions and their interlinking 22 connections.

Since those 10 dimensions are further broken down to another 10 sub-dimensions each, there are a total of 100 sefirot (dimensions), thus we have right away the obvious comparisons between 32 and 100 attributes of the Tree-of-life and the 32 and 100 degree critical temperature points of water,

This just happens to be a natural correlation between man’s science and G-d’s; nevertheless, the point of this article is to illustrate how G-d designed the Future Holy Temple—a pure extension of the greater universe itself—around those same proportions inherent in the temperature readings of water and light.

These revealed proportions are based on the dimensions given to us by R’ Chaim Luzzatto in his Mishkney Elyon written between 1722 and 1729, which he derived from the description of the Future Holy Temple in Ezekiel 40-43.

It’s funny how the two major temperature scales (Fahrenheit and Celsius) would come into being within the same 20-year window that the thin esoteric book by R’ Chaim Luzzatto, the celebrated kabbalist, did. Hmm!

According to the dimensions given by R’ Chaim Luzzatto, the Future Temple is constructed along the lines of the 10 sefirot of the Tree-of-life through the 32 Paths of Wisdom. To that end, the Alter, at the exact center of the concentrically arranged Temple, is 32 cubits square, and also exactly 32% of the inner courtyard’s dimensions. The inner courtyard, which is 100 cubits square is at the very center of the outer courtyard, and is likewise exactly 32.0% of that outer courtyard, which is 312 cubits square. Simply put, 100/312 = 32.0% and 32/100 = 32.000%

So lets look at this simple structure closer. Water freezes at 0 and 32 degrees, totaling 0 + 32 = 32, and it boils at 100 and 212 degrees, or 312, so how much of a coincidence do we think it is that the Future holy Temple is designed into concentric squares with 32 at the center, 100 in the next outer square, leaving 212 as the distance from that square to the outermost one, which is 312 square. Pretty cool, right?

And this is only the beginning…. Part II to follow soon

Color My World

The seasons change and so do the colors. Why? Sure, there is a scientific biological reason and it’s not really open for dispute, but there is a spiritual reason as well.  Everything in our world runs in cycles, usually cycles of 7, and there is a time for everything, as in the 28 times of Ecclesiastes (3: 2-8), and depending where you live there are 4 very distinct seasons.

So why then the colorful change during the different seasons and why are we mentioning it in a kabbalah blog?

Because color is nothing more than differing frequencies of light and light is nothing more than a stream of photos, which are energy bundles, ergo colors are just reflections of differing frequencies of energy, the same as the Hebrew letters.

Our ancestors knew this, which is why when the Israelites built the Pyramid that built it to reflect the spectrum of light.  The most basic measurements of the Pyramid are its height, exactly 210 holy cubits, and its base, exactly 330 holy cubits.  We’re calling them holy cubits because this cubit (27.5 inches) is the one based on G-d’s name, (YHVH) and designated for the Future Temple, as we’ve discussed in our prior articles. Nevertheless, given only 210 and 330 and the 10 dimensional structure of the universe agreed upon by both most modern physicists and the ancient kabbalists, we find that:

1/(330*102) = 1/33,000 inches (the exact wavelength for red light)


1/(210*330) = 1/69300 inches (the exact wavelength for violet light on the opposite side of the visible light spectrum).

And by the way, 210 + 330 + 1 = 541, the numerical value of Israel, at the center of the visible frequency scale.

Be that as it may, our world was created for us and there is meaning and purpose in everything in G-d’s Creation. Everything was put there to support us, including the colors. We actually need the energy available to us in the colors, and there is an easy way to tap into that energy. If you live in a area where the leaves change colors you especially need to tap into them before winter arrives, no different than the squirrels need to hoard acorns.

So what do we do?

Very simply, you want to spend some time outdoors, stare in he direction of whatever color pops out as brightest, and allow your eyes to soften their focus. Soon the colors will intensify. Just allow yourself to absorb them.

You can do this for a few seconds, or you can doing a full meditation or Ana B’koach–all depends on your desires. In the Fall, I’d do this with as many different colors as I could find, intense reds, yellows, oranges. Winter will be here soon.

In the Spring, or in an area of perpetual green, focus on the bright light green, yellowish new growth; the energy will rejuvenate you.  While hiking in the Cascade Mountains, inspired by the beauty and the waterfalls, I went a few miles too deep and had exhausted myself, with sundown fast approaching. In a few seconds of soft focus, the green forest was ablaze of bright light green rejuvenating energy.  And after only a couple minutes of relishing in this energy, I quickly retraced my trail and beat the sun.

And by the way, the colors of sunset and sunrise, give us those bountiful same energies, just in time to begin our days, and our nights.  As for the blue frequencies, we have only to look up to the sky. Take advantage and enjoy all that was given to us.

We were given this world, let’s make the most of it. Getting in tune with it, is a great way to begin.

The Essence of the Letter Yud; the Power of 10.

All light emanates from the letter Yud(Y).The first line of the Ana B’koach (42-Letter Name) has the numerical value 506, and since the 42-Letter Name of G-d is divided into 14 triplets and there are 506 occurrences of these triplets in the Torah (see The Genesis Prayer), it would appear this is no coincidence.

We’ve mentioned repeatedly that we know from the sages that 506 is the numerical value of “Ahavat Chinam,” unconditional love. And as Zion just pointed on in his comment on our last article that 22 x 23 = 506. What he left unsaid, but is well aware, is that 22 represents the 22 letters (energy bundles) of the alef-bet and 23 is the numerical value of ray (TzYV) or radiation, as in the light of the Shechina. Thus 506 is also the radiation of the 22 letters or energy building blocks that Abraham Avinu tells us in his Sefer Yetzira that the universe is constructed with.

Moreover, the complete numerical value, including the kolel, for radiation of the Shechina (TzYV H’ShCYNH)is 424, the same as that of Mashiach Ben David (the Messiah). Keep in mind that the tzaddikim have told us that it is the understanding of the Ana B’koach (42-Letter Name) that will help bring about the Geula (final redemption) and the Moshiach.

What does this have to do with the letter Yud(Y) and the essence of 10?

Let’s follow the trail of light. According to the Zohar, Peace (Shalom) is the vessel for everything. So far so good; on a simple level, without peace in a marriage or a nation, there is no vessel for holding wealth, health, happiness, fulfillment, in a word, light.

Now let’s take it a step further. The complete numerical value (standard plus ordinal) of Shalom (ShLVM) is 376 + 52 – 4 (kolel for the 4 letters) = 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David (the Messiah) again. So far so good again; the completion of the vessel of Peace leads to the Mashiach (Messiah).

So what does the Moshiach lead to?

So now, let’s take the complete numerical value of Mashiach Ben David (MShYCh Bn DVD) and see that it is 424 + 82 = 506. Thus the presence of the Moshiach leads to unconditional love and the full emanation of the radiation of the Shechina through the 22 letters of the Alef-Bet, in other words, the revelation of the Tree-of-Life reality that is defined by the 10 sefirot (dimensions) and the 22 paths that connect them. The difference between that reality and ours is that we operate in the lowest level of that existence and perceive everything as finite and limited, while in the time of the Moshiach, our perception will open to comprehend the infinite, and we’ll realize there are no limitations, physical or spiritual.

By the way Shalom and Mashiach have the same ordinal value, 52, tying them both spiritually to the emanation of manifestation, known as Ban(52), or Malchut. Meaning that to achieve that ultimate Tree-of-life reality, the vessel for Peace and the establishment of the Moshiach will have to start with our work on the physical plane.

But what of the letter Yud(Y)?

The letter Yud(Y) of numerical value 10 is the first letter of the Tetragrammaton, the ineffable Name of G-d (YHVH) and is always associated with the sefira of Wisdom, Chochma. We’ve previously discussed its associations with the 10 Commandments (Utterances), 10 Plagues, the 10 generations of Adam, the 10 Songs, which are all just manifestations of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) of the Tree-of-Life.  Indeed, all our mathematics is based on the base-10 decimal system, an those 10 dimensions that the Ancient Kabbalists wrote about are the same 10 dimensions that modern physicists swear comprise the greater structure of the universe.

Nevertheless, the letter Yud (Y) is spelled YVD, of numerical value 20 and when we spell out those letters yet again, forming the 3rd iteration of the letter Yud, they add up to (10+20+476) = 506.




OK, we know from the tzaddikim and the Zohar and from the modern mathematicians and physicists that the 10 sefirot (dimensions) expand by the power of 10: 10-100-1000… So considering what we’ve just learned, as the light(energy) of the letter (Y) expands exponentially from 1 to 1000 (Keter) it equates to 506, which is equivalent to the full emanation of all 22 letters and to the emanation of unconditional love and to the manifestation of Mashiach Ben David.

There are 13 letters in this 3-part expansion and 13 is the numerical value of Ahava (love) and Echad (one), as in “G-d is One.” It is not a coincidence that the letter Yud (Y) is the first letter of G-d’s name (YHVH), as the entire name emanates from the letter Yud(Y), and note that this full emanation totals 42 letters in its 3 iterations, forming the Upper 42-Letter Name of G-d.

But back to the simpler expansion of the letter Yud (Y), which totaled 506 numerically. The ordinal value of the 13 letters in the 3 iterations of the letter Yud(Y) is 110, as in the numerical value of Nes (NS, meaning miracles), and as in 10 for each 11 sefirot in the complete Tree-of-life (including Da’at), which incidentally is spelled out in 42 letters. Thus the complete value of the 3 iterations of the letter Yud(Y), is 616, the exact numerical value of H’TVRH, “The Torah,” and also 616 is the number of times the exact name Moses (MShH) is written in the Torah.

So what’s in a letter?

From now on every time you see the letter Yud(Y), especially in the Torah and especially in the Name of G-d (YHVH) you should see the full manifestation of its energy, its radiation, until it encapsulates you and the world and brings about the Moshiach, Unconditional Love, and the Tree-of-Life reality, B”H soon. The message here is that that energy (cosmic imprint) is ever present and only needs to be manifest. We can tap into it at any time.

The Hidden Message Within

At the end of the Book of Vayikra (Leviticus), just when we’re taught about the jubilee year, we reach a turning point not only in the Torah, but in the Tree-of-Life as well. An intricate and very important message to us was woven into the structure of the Torah. And only by taking a step back does it become readily apparent.

The final two portions of this the 3rd Book, Behar and BeChukotai have 57 and 78 verses respectively, completing the upper 3 sefirot (dimensions) —Keter, Chochma and Binah—and splitting the Torah into two portion precisely along the Phi (Golden Mean) proportions.  Followers of this blog know full well that Rav Ashlag and others have given us the year 5778 (2018 CE) as the time for the arrival of Moshiach (the Messiah) and the geula (the final redemtion), which ushers in the 3rd time we had the opportunity to achieve the Tree-of-life reality, so it’s not surprising that the Torah would once again be encoded to showcase that date.

There’s no coincidence that we’re told to count jubilee years (50 years intervals) or that we’re told to do it in the 115th chapter in the Torah (Behar, 25:1-24). Previously, we’d been told to count 50 days from Pesach to the reception of the 10 Commandments (Tree-of-Life) on Shavuot. This is called the Omer period, but kabbalistically the sages have taught us that “days,” “months,” and “years” are synonymous and that counting 50 days is also a message to count 50 years. But the message isn’t just to count 50 year intervals, which were told to do explicitly in Behar anyway. But that we’re supposed to count a specific period, we which can extrapolate to mean from the exile in 2448 HC to the reception of the Tree-of-life, which if it occurs as foretold in 5778 HC, will be precisely 66.6 jubilee years. But it would also be the 115th jubilee year from the first time we had Tree-of-life consciousness back in the Garden of Eden with Adam.

So are there hidden time codes hidden year? Of course.

In an article we wrote about the famous “End of Days” prophecy of Daniel and Time, times, and half a time, we discussed the connection to the Torah’s odd wording in the Chayeh Sarah verse “Shanah, shanah, Shan’im” or “year, year, and years,” especially since Shanah can be regarded as “time” as well.

To better understand this, we need to go to a place before time, where the primordial letter alef exists before the physical universe took shape. According to Abraham and his Sefer Yetzirah (The Book of Formation) in that place/empty space before Creation and before the Torah, the 3 Mothers (Alef, Shin, and Mem) came into existence. But first among them was the letter alef.

Alef typically has the numerical value of 1 and is spelled, ELP, which has the numerical value of 111. Now the Tree-of-life is split into the 3 upper worlds, and Zeir Anpin, or the 6-world (dimension) ladder than takes us from our world (Malchut) to the upper ones. The Torah is akin to Zeir Anpin, this 6-dimensional channel, which is why 60% of the verses in it begin with the letter Vav (of numerical value 6) and why there are 6 letter Alefs in the Torah’s first verse, totaling 6, or 666 when spelled out. The place delineated by the final two chapters totaling 57-78 verses and that ultimately the splits the Torah into the precise Phi proportion as will be explained below also according to the sages, splits the Torah into the upper 3 sefirot and into Zeir Anpin with the start of the Book of Numbers (Bamidbar).

So since the Israelites received and blew the 2nd Tree-of-life opportunity at Mt Sinai in the 50th jubilee year from Adam and the 1st opportunity, we now have the 3rd opportunity approaching after an additional 66.6 jubilee years, and 66.6 is not only very relevantly connected to the 6 letter Alefs of Creation and representative of the numerical and all-important kabbalistic fraction 2/3, but it is also 1/3 more 50 (i.e. 66.6/50 = 1.33).

Interesting enough, the two portions whose verses total 57-78 and whose first and last verse contains the words “B’har Sinai (On Mount Sinai)” have 7 and 5 paragraphs between them, paragraphs 87-98 of Vayikra to be precise and the sum of 87 through 98 is 1110, or that of 10 letter Alefs (ELP). And in case we were to miss this, Behar is the 32nd portion in the Torah, as in the 32 Paths of Wisdom that make up The tree-of-Life and as in the value, 32, or the 4 component letters that physically make of the letter Alef (Yud-Vav-Vav-Yud).

The Arizal further explains that Alef (ELP) can also be the word elef, meaning “one thousand (1000).” Now, if we substitute, as the Arizal did, the value 1000 for the value 1, the value of alef spelled out become 1110, which is 10 x 111, or Alef expanded to cover all 10 sefira (dimensions).

So if you ever thought that the dividing up of the Torah into portions and paragraphs, etc was arbitrary, this should serve as a reminder of the depth of its encoding and technology.

Moreover, “Shanah, shanah, Shan’im” also has the numerical value of 1110, and thus is spiritually connected to primordial time, to the beginning before Creation. We wont go into again here all the technology built into that portion from Chayah Sarah where it’s declared Sarah was 127 or from Daniel 12:7 or how they both connect to Moshiach and 5778, but we will explain that Alef (ELP) is also Eluf, or “chief” and thus 1110 also represents the 10 chiefs or heads of the sefirot in unison, which must occur in order for the Tree-of-life reality to manifest in our world.

It should not be so surprising what is found at parsha Behar since Behar (BHR) has the same numerical value as “Light (Ohr)” and “secrets (Raz),” but the beautiful moment comes at the close of this 3rd Book, after the 57-78 sign, when in the first chapter of Bamidbar.

As we explain in much greater depth in There’s Nothing Random About the Universe, the primordial mathematical constant that controls the natural shaping of spirals, from the stars in our galaxy, to the petals on our flowers, to the shape of our seashells and our Trees, and to the growth of our populations is called Phi. Phi is a specially balanced proportion that exists between the two parts of a segmented whole and then to the whole itself (i.e. the short length is to the longer one as the longer one is to the entire length). Nature naturally follows this proportion at all turns, and when art or architecture does too it gives us a beautiful sense of harmony, balance, and well-being. But Phi is not only integral to the existence of the universe, but to the design of the Torah as well, as we’ll show below. Moreover, as is covered extensively in There’s Nothing Random About the Universe it is uniquely connected to the number and thus the year 5778 as well.

There are 5 Books in the Torah, all of varying length, number of chapters, words, letters, verses, etc. and it was written down by hand thousands of years ago, before anyone had ever heard of primordial mathematical constants, or calculators. So it is amazing that the Torah is actually divided into specific segments using the Phi proportion with the first chapter of Numbers (Bamidbar) being the dividing point in terms of the number of letters, words, and also verses, splitting the Torah into two harmonic portions.


(Genesis + Exodus + Leviticus) / (Numbers + Deuteronomy) =

1.61803399 letters


(Genesis + Exodus + Leviticus) / (Numbers + Deuteronomy) =

1.61803399 words


(Genesis + Exodus + Leviticus) / (Numbers + Deuteronomy) =

1.61803399 verses

And conversely,

(Numbers + Deuteronomy)/(Genesis + Exodus + Leviticus) = .61803399 letters, or words, or verses

Also, as illustrated in The Genesis Prayer, while the collective number of words, letters, and verses in the entire Torah = 390,625, which is exactly 58, they too as a whole connect with Phi in that:

(Total Words, Letters, and Verses in the Torah) / (106 x (√1 + √2))

= 1.618022

Moreover, as is also illustrated in The Genesis Prayer:

The Words, Letters, Verses, Columns and Rows in the Torah = 248000 x 1.61803399

With 248 being the numerical value of Abraham and also of Mercy (Rachem), but also—and here is another clue—of Bamidbar (Numbers), where we find the Torah divided precisely into the Phi proportion.

Now, we mentioned earlier that Behar began with the 115 chapter of the full 187 chapters in the Torah and that 5778 occurs in the 115th jubilee year, actually at 115.56 jubilee years from Adam and the first Tree-of-life reality we were offered. So how coincidental is it that 187/phi = 115.57236.. and that 115.57236 jubilee years (Biblical 50-year intervals) = 5778.618.

Or that the last chapter in Bechukotai, the other half of the 57-78 portions, is the 117 chapter and 117/187 = .625 with 625 being the square root of 390,625, the collective number of words, letters, and verses in the Torah.

There are moments when science, religion and spirituality come together. There aren’t as many as there should be because everyone has his own entrenched beliefs. Nevertheless, this is one of those precious moments of harmony, when we can all be in awe, when we can all see and understand that the primordial underlying structure of the physical universe is the same as that of the Bible and of the spiritual world as well, and that this is in no way random.

Given all that we’ve seen, as the events of next few years unfold we need to pay close attention to the Torah, because nothing is random, and all has been foretold.

The message is that the 3rd opportunity for the Tree-of-Life is upon us, whether we’ve chosen to prepare ourselves or not.
