Who put the Tree into the Tree-of-Life: A Startling Revelation.

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, that the Bible, which is the essence of religion, and that the structure of the spiritual world are all the same, and that this is in no way random.

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 extends between the two parts of a segmented whole and then to the whole itself (ie 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 letters, of words, and also of verses that splits the Torah into two harmonic portions.

Thus:

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

1.61803399 letters, or words, or verses

And

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

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

(Words, Letters, and Verses in the Entire Torah)/(106 x (square root 1 + the square root of 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)

We’ve proven repeatedly in The Genesis Prayer, in There’s Nothing Random in the Universe and in our articles the purposeful interweaving of Pi (3.1415926358…) in the construction of the Torah. Now we see that the primordial mathematical constant Phi (1.61803399) was likewise programmed in.

This is beautiful and awe inspiring for bring science and religion together, but what the Torah is really illustrating for us is the secret proportions of the Tree-of-Life or spiritual structure of the universe. It’s common knowledge amongst the sages and tzaddikim that Genesis represents Keter; Exodus, Chochma; Leviticus, Binah; Numbers, Zeir Anpin; and Deuteronomy represents Malchut, our world.

So transferring the Torah proportions to the 5 main sefirot (dimensions) gives us Keter, Chochma and Binah collectively being Phi (1.618033) times larger than the seven lower sefirot (dimensions) comprised of the 6 bundled into Zeir Anpin and Malchut. In other words the topmost 3 sefirot (dimensions) represent 61.80 % of the Tree-of-Life (the greater universe) and the bottom 7 sefirot represents 38.2%.

Traditionally, the tree-of-life is depicted like this:

K

B – Ch

G – Ch

T

H – N

Y

M

But if you picture the proportions we’ve gleaned from the Torah, then you will see a thick tall trunk topped with a heavy wide and pointed triangular mushroom top:

K




B——————————Ch

G – Ch

T

H – N

Y

M

Now You Know Why it’s called a Tree!

There are 5 Books of Moses which we now know to be divided precise into the Phi proportion in terms of Books (3 and 2), and letter, and words, and verses, but what is significant about this is that Phi (1.618033887.,.) is based on the number 5, actually the square root of the number 5. It is exactly (1 + √5)/2 if you must know. We’ve discussed the sefirot that each of the books connect with, so we know that the 5th Book, the one that repeats the Torah’s story again from Moses’ point of view, is connected to Malchut, and we’ve seen in previous articles how numerous very specific prophecies about the last exile and the end-of-days is clearly spelled out in this 5th and final Book.

We know the Torah is exceedingly redundant (probably because we’re exceedingly thick-headed) and fractal in nature in its structure patterns and coding, so it’s not surprising to find that the 5th Book (Deuteronomy/Devarim) has 34 chapters, with 34 being the 10th Fibonacci number starting from zero. Fibonnaci numbers (0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55…) are a very famous sequence formed by adding together the two prior numbers, the ratio between which approximates Phi (1.6180…). As there are 10 sefirot (dimensions) the number 10 also represents Malchut, representing an ending of sorts.

Using this as a clue, it’s further insightful that the 5th Torah portion of the 5th Book (Deuteronomy/Devarim), parsha Shoftim, begins at Devarim 16:18.

Given this, and exploiting one of the basic and most unique properties of Phi, we find that the square root of 1.618033.. is 6.18033.., or (Phi –1) and Phi2 is 2.618033.., or (Phi + 1), so examining the 3 corresponding verses in Devarim, we find a concealed Torah

message about the end-of-days, which is really the dawning of the age of the Tree-of-Life. Devarim 6:18 corresponds the square root of Phi; Devarim 16:18

corresponds to Phi; and Devarim 26:18 corresponds to Phi2.

Devarim 6:18 “Do what is upright and good in God’s eyes, so that He will be good to you. You will then come and occupy the good land that God promised your fathers.”

Devarim 16:18 Appoint yourselves judges and police for your tribes in all your settlements that God your Lord is giving you, and make sure that they administer honest judgment for the people.”

Devarim 26:18 “God has similarly declared allegiance to you today, making you His special nation as He promised you. If you keep all His commandments, He will make you the highest of all nations He brought into existence…”

In short, “Do what is right, police yourselves, and God with elevate you to the Tree-of-Life state of reality.” The Arizal and other tzaddikim and sages have explained that we are our own police and judges and that we need to guard the gates of our souls, our senses and our consciousness. Moreover, the Zohar explains that as we judge others so we will be judged, so we must zealously guard our thoughts. And the word “people” in Devarim 16:18 refers not our own people, but to all other people in the 70 nations, for we are responsible for their well-being. Our thoughts and actions affect them.

We’re being told to take responsibility for our actions and thoughts and once we truly do, we’ll realize that we’re the only ones standing in our own way from receiving the final redemption.

At the first word of Devarim 16:18, where the portion of Shoftim begins, we find the 358th Shin-Mem (ShM) letter combination in the Book of Devarim. The combination spells the word Shem, as in the “Name” of G-d.  There is an abnormal preponderance of words with this combination in the previous portion, Reah, meaning “to see,” but the 358th one at the word Shoftim (Judges) alludes to Moshiach, also of numerical value 358, and also containing the same letter combination, yet in reverse (MShYCh). The spiritual explanation is that by honest judging, the Torah is speaking about judging with Mashiach consciousness, that of thinking with and through the heart.  Also, that from these actions will come Moshiach.

The Shin-Mem (ShM) letter combination has a numerical value of 340, significantly, 10 times the value 34, the 10th Fibonacci number and final chapter in the Torah, and also 18 (Chai, life,) less than 358, Moshiach.

We’re in final part of the month of Elul, the month of preparation for Rosh Hashanah, when we should be doing Tshuvah. Literally translated as repentance, it is deep self- examination and a going back in time to undo all the negativity that we’ve created.  The Torah shows us the way.  The numbers above are all intellectual, but the path traced is spiritual.  To travel back in time we must enter through our hearts and follow our actions and their results backwards along the universal harmonic path delineated by the Phi spiral until we get to their sources, whether in our childhood or in previous lifetimes, begging forgiveness and increasing our appreciate of Hashem and our understanding of our place in His universe as we go.

Thus it’s no coincidence that the Baal Shem Tov came out to the world in Elul, in the 6th Month on the 18th day of Elul (6/18), which split the month into the Phi proportion. It was likewise no coincidence that Rabbi Shimon’s hillulah is on the 18th of Iyar (the 33rd day of the Omer), which also split Iyar into those same proportions, both dates reminiscent of .618033.. and both Tzaddiks of blessed memory adding so much understanding to our world.

Phi18 = 5778, the year 2018 CE, a scant 8 years from this Rosh Hashanah. Let’s take advantage of this opportunity to take responsibility for our thoughts and actions and thus become part of the harmony of our universe, instead of being chaotic blights upon it.  Let’s not fight this spiraling ride we’re on, but ride with it, as time spirals ever tighter to 5778, and let’s ride it as our consciousness expands and spirals upward and outward into the broad branches of the upper Tree-of-Life, the reality beyond the illusions.

Now, if it occurred to you to ask why the 187 chapters of the Torah weren’t also divided into the Phi proportion, when that would seem like an easier calculation that keeping track of hundreds of thousands of letters, know this: 187/phi = 115.57236.. and 115.57236 jubilee years (Biblical 50 year interval) = 5778.618.  Go Figure!

So where was the split at Numbers 1:1, in terms of chapters? There are 70 chapters in the last two Books, so 117/187 = .625 and 625 is the square root of 390,625, the collective number of words, letters, and verses in the Torah. It’s also exactly 5/8 as in the exactly 58 total words, letters, and verses in the Torah.

Rosh Hashanah is nearly upon us. It is truly a time of awe.

The YHVH and the Final Redemption

G-d’s timing can be found in His Name for He and His Name are One. His Wisdom is boundless, yet it’s there right in front of us for all to see, and always has been.

According to the Zohar Pinchas 293, “…For the Holy One, blessed be He, and His Shechinah are voice and speech of every angel, and in every voice and speech of Torah, and in every voice of prayer, and in each single precept, and in every place of His rule, among upper and lower beings. He is the life of everything. He carries everything.”

And in the Zohar Pinchas 294, the spirit of Moses, known as the Faithful Shepherd, continues, “Just as there is no speech without voice and no voice without speech, so there is no Adonai without the Yud Hei Vav Hei [YHVH]…”

Nothing exists or happens without the YHVH thus one would expect there to be much wisdom to be gleaned from it, and indeed all wisdom can be gleaned from it, but even just superficially, we can see and understand how the timing of the geula (final redemption) can readily be seen shining on it’s surface, much the way the Sun’s surface (known to the kabbalists as Zeir Anpin) burns at 5778 K, the perfect temperature to give life to the Earth.

There are 4 spelled-out aspects of the Tetragrammaton, corresponding to 4 spiritual levels:

Chochma (YVD HY VYV HY) of numerical value 72

Binah (YVD HY VEV HY) of numerical value 63

Zeir Anpin (YVD HE VEV HE) of numerical value 45

Malchut (YVD HH VV HH) of numerical value 52

And as you can see there are 9 letter Yuds in the expanded Name, with the letter Yud(Y) being the spiritual seed of the entire YHVH..

And as we’ve explained in The Genesis Prayer and in several articles already: 9/(the 42-Letter Name) = the 70 faces of the Torah + Pi (3.1415926)

9/.123049… = 73.141593

So how surprising is it that when we individually divide the 4 aspects of the YHVH by the number 9, representing the 9th sefira (dimension), that of Chochma/Wsidom, we get:

Chochma 72 72/9 = 8

Binah 63 63/9 = 7

Zeir Anpin 45 45/9 = 5

Malchut 52 52/9 = 5.778

Total: 232 25.778

It’s pretty clear that there is a message within this wisdom.

But if we take the results one step further:

Chochma 72/9 = 8 we get 8/72 = .11111…

Binah 63/9 = 7 we get 7/63 = .11111…

Zeir Anpin 45/9 = 5 we get 5/45 = .11111…

Malchut 52/9 = 5.778 we get 6/52 = .1153846153846…

Or alternatively:

80/72 = 1.11111111

70/63 = 1.11111111

50/45 = 1.11111111

60/52 = 1.153846153

The series of 1’s obviously represents unity, but while there are exactly 115.3846 jubilee years from Adam through 5769 (2009 CE), which just happens to be 9 years prior to 5778 (2018 CE), the 8th root of PI is precisely 1.15383506784 as well.

Things that make you go Hmmm!

The YHVH, 42-Letter Name, 9, Pi, and 5778; All linked together.

And speaking of that, not only does the 4th root of (72*63*45*52) = 57.078…but 5778/173 (the small gematria value of the 42-Letter Name, also known as the 173 Keys given to Moses) = 33.39 and the square root of 33.39 = 5.778

HMMM!

There is infinite wisdom in the YHVH, so what will happen in 5778?

We’ve discussed innumerable connections between Mashiach and the Divine Calendar and the number 8. Moreover, the aspect of the YHVH spelled YVD HH VV HH, of numerical value 52, represents Malchut, the final level (sefira) from which we saw 6/52 = .1153846, along with all its connections to 5778; thus the equation utilizing the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David (424) divided by Malchut, or 424/52 = 8.153846 must mean something to us as well.

The number 6 also represents Zeir Anpin. And Malchut is to Zeir Anpin as Adonai, of numerical value 65, is to the YHVH, thus the simple equation 1/153846 = 6.50000*10-6 is quite telling as well, with Malchut reflecting Adonai

As Moses said in the Zohar,“There is no Adonai without the Yud Hei Vav Hei [YHVH]…”

It all comes together in 5778; the perfect fusion of Zeir Anpin and Malchut in the Tree-of-Life reality, the full manifestation of Mashiach, and all things returning to the state of Creation through the 42-Letter Name, which, as the tzaddikim have said, is so necessary for the geula (final redemption).

Shabbat Shalom

Phi in the Sky

I’m sorry for the delay in my posts. I’ve been working all week on the follow up article to the 10 Utterances and it’s such a crucial topic that spans 5 Torah portions that it’s taking longer then anticipated.

Meanwhile, one of you had asked me for some deeper math–everyone else can take a deep breath. I’ve only seen a glimpse of the complexity of the math behind the Torah, but it was enoughto know that with our gematria cipher connections, square roots, sums of integers, factorials, and with our simple formulas we are only cruising the surface. The truth would make an MIT professor blush.

One bit I will share today partials covers the amazing mathematic constant Phi. The understanding about this marvelous primordial constant will help explain why G-d based His divine plan and calendar around the numbers 5778, 666, and 18.

As readers of There’s Nothing Random About the Universe know, besides Pi, there is another primordial mathematical constant that also came into being at the exact moment of Creation and that is Phi (1.61803399…). The Greeks called it the golden mean because it governs all the spiraling growth in the universe, from the petals on a flower and the branches of a tree, to our DNA and the arms of the Milky Way.

Just like Pi, which mathematically bends a straight line into a circle regardless of its size, so too does Phi dictate the proportions and the angles in which a natural spiral grows. Phi is considered golden for another reason; everything that’s built using the phi proportion (1.61803399 : 1) is said to be in perfect harmony visually, spatially, and spiritually, and this resonates with our senses and sensibilities.

The thing about Phi that makes it so special and significant for us is that it’s based on unity, the number One (1) as in “He and His Name are One” and “G-d is One” and “One Soul.” All other numbers are constructed by dividing 1 into segments or equal or disproportionate length. The Phi division is always proportionate and always reflects the original unity (1).

We’ll get into what phi looks like in a moment, but we’d like to illustration Phi’s connection to unity first, and since the phi proportion formula Phi = 1 + 1/Phi can be expanded recursively to obtain a continuous fraction of 1‘s, we get :

Phi = [1;1,1,1,…] = 1 + 1/(1+1/(1+1/(1+…)

and also its reciprocal:

Phi-1 = [0;1,1,1,…] = 0 + 1/(1+1/(1+1/(1+…)

Moreover, since the phi proportion can also be writing as the equation Phi2= 1+ Phi we likewise get the continuous square root unity (1) formula:

Phi = √(1+√(1+√(1+√(1+…)

That said, we should also note that Phi can be equally constructed with the square root of 5, pretty appropriate considering G-d gave us the 5 Books of Moses.

Now, Phi, as a number, is an irrational constant whose digits go on and on infinitely, and thus dividing or multiplying by it should only infrequently give us a whole number. Well, actually, it never can, but if we set our criteria as the rounding off of the resultant numbers at three or more decimal places (i.e. 2207.0001) then we should come up a relatively small, yet still sizeable set of numbers, given that we’re considering all the known whole numbers in the universe.

Now, Phi has a very special property and that is that when we square it (multiply it by itself) it is really the same as adding a 1 to the number, which is what was expressed in the formulas above, but what it means is that 1.61803399 squared = 2.61803399. And the same holds true when we take the inverse of Phi, or 1/Phi, which is 1/1.61803399, and get .61803399, which is precisely Phi-1.

This special property is what actually gives Phi the ability to form spiraling effects on numbers, matter, and on energy. But be that as it may, any irrational constant, including Phi, when multiplied by itself or any other non-whole number for that matter will give another irrational number, and thus give us the same unlikelihood of getting a whole number rounded off to 3 decimal places.

Now, we said all this preamble because there is one number that is not only part of that short set of numbers wholly divisible by phi (1.61803399+) to 3 decimal places, but its equally so by Phi2 and by 1/Phi. Moreover, it’s also part of an even smaller set that’s also wholly divisible to the same extent by Phi3 and also by (Phi2+1), (Phi-1), (Phi-1)2, and (Phi-1)3, and also (Phi-2), and also (Phi-3) and by (Phi2-4) and (Phi3-4)2 too.

Even given an infinite set of numbers to work with, the resultant set of numbers that can do this is getting quite limited and most of them if they exist, are only multiples of 5778, yes 5778, as in the surface temperature of the Sun, 5778 K and the year the tzaddikim have given us for the geula (final redemption) and the coming of the Moshiach, the Messiah.

That a number even exists which can be evenly divided by several different endless irrational constants is mind boggling, but that relatively miniscule set dwindles down to just a single number when we further apply the criteria of dividing it by Phi-1, by Phi-2, Phi-3, by (Phi-2 +1), and (Phi-6 +1) and by the square root of 5 as well, or in mathematical notation √5.

The next series of minor revelations may shed some light though on the process by which 5778 became so unique. When we divide 5778 by Phi raised to the power of 15, or Phi15 , it equates to approximately 4.24, which is the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David, the Messiah, Son of David.

And then when we divide 5778 by Phi raised to the power of 16 we get 5778/Phi16 = 2.61803399 = Phi2. And then when we divide 5778 by Phi raised to the power of 17 we get 5778/Phi17 = 1.61803399 = Phi. And finally, when we divide 5778 by Phi raised to the power of 18 we get 1, or written as an equation 5778/ Phi18 = 1.0000000….

5778/ Phi18 = 1.0000000….

in other words

Phi18 = 5778

So it all boils down to Phi18 = 5778 and the square root of 18 = 4.242640,  the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David..

The number 18, the numerical value of chai, life, is of course 18 = 6 + 6 +6 and there exists a soecial trigonometric relationship between Phi and 666 such that:

Phi/2 = sin 666° = cos(6x6x6°)

and thus

Phi = sin 666° + cos(6x6x6°)


Like I said, it gets pretty complicated underneath the codes. And for those that may question further there assumptions/beliefs that the Mashiach is supposed to arrive in the year 6000, ponder this:

360°/phi 222.5°

and


6000 – 222 = 5778

360 degrees is a full cirle, once again unity and oneness.

Yes, Mashiach may come in late 5777 and the geula in 5778. Please do not get hung up on that.  The point is that G-d has a plan and we have hope, and need to work to be part of that plan to convert our hopes into reality, the reality of the tree-of-life.

B”H, very soon, we’ll bring you the sequel to the 10 Utterances and even more of G-d’s divine intentions will be revealed for us to learn and grow from.
