Tonight, Rabbi Shimon Revealed Another Secret

It’s fitting that this is Lag B’omer, the celebrated death anniversary of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, for not only did he pass away on the 33rd day of the Omer period, but in his final speech (See Zohar Idra Zuta), he spoke about the 115th psalm.

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.

There is an innate structure to our universe no matter how chaotic it may feel to use, and stepping back we can understand that; after all, if there are a set of natural laws and a set of mathematical (physical) constants then no matter what scale things should look alike and follow the same patterns. But what about an ancient scroll 248 columns long? Should the letters, words, chapters, and verses on that 3330 year old document adhere to the same pattern? If it was written by G-d it might, or by the universe itself it might? But if it were written by man, could it?

Maybe today it could, using computers and software, but 3330 years ago? And if it did, why was the number and date 5778 (2018 ce) singled out? Some of those answers can be found in the Torah portions read during the Omer in the portions surrounding Lag B’Omer.

The Torah or 5 Books of Moses is comprised of several finite and very defined structural elements: the number of words in it, letters, verses, chapters, paragraphs.  These haven’t changed in 3330 years, which in Biblical counting as we learn in this week’s portion, Bechukotai, is 66.6 jubilee years (50-year intervals).

The wonderful things about having quantitative numbers verses qualitative words is that we don’t have to interpret them. The total 187 chapters in the Torah divided into the Phi (.61803399) proportion is exactly (187  x .61803399) = 115.566, and 5778, the year prophesied by the tzaddikim for the arrival of the geula (final redemption) in jubilee years (5778/50) is precisely 115.56.

Moreover that 115th chapter is the chapter 25 of the Book of Leviticus, the first chapter in Torah portion Behar, and as it happens not only does Behar have 57 verses in it, but the very next portion (often read together by the way) is Bechukotai with 78 verses. Thus at the 115th chapter in the Torah we have 2 consecutive portions of 57 and 78 verses respectively, a nice allusion to 5778.

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 the Book of Numbers (Bamidbar) being the dividing point in terms of letters, of words, of verses, and of all 3 together, that splits the Torah into two harmonic portions.


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

1.61803399 letters, or words, or verses


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

So Lag B’Omer is the 33rd day of the Omer, and the 33rd portion of the Torah is Emor, the very portion where the number of words, letters and verses of the Torah is split into a proportion of .5778.

In summary, the have the portion of Emor connected to Lag B’Omer, and to the .5778 proportion in terms of the number of words, letters and verses in the Torah. Then we have the next two portions in the Torah, Behar and Bechukotai, with 57 and 78 verses respectively as the final two potions in Leviticus, and with their connection to splitting the Torah’s 187 chapters into the exact Phi proportion (115.56) that equations to the number of jubilee years from Adam to Moshiach in 5778. And then in the very next portion, in fact the very next chapter, the first chapter in Numbers, we have the Torah split into the Phi proportion in terms of letters, verses and words.

Now as explained in There’s Nothing Random About the Universe the connection between Phi and also Pi to 5778 is a profound one and Phi18 = 5778.000 precisely so maybe it’s more than coincidental that the gematria of Lag B’Omer is 358, that of Mashiach.

Maybe there is a reason for all this. And maybe we should wake up and stop perusing dates from dead cultures and calendars and start looking at the Bible (Torah) for the answers and timing that was given to us exactly 66.6 jubilee years before 5778 at Mt Sinai and that was spelled out for us in terms that could only be readily understood by our generation, the first to use computers and analytical software.

Thank you once again, Rabbi Shimon.  We’ll resume our discussions and revelations about the Future Holy Temple shortly.

Here’s a couple more equations for those so inclined, or so skeptical.

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) and also the number of columns in the Torah.

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.

Purim, 5778, and Moshiach

In the Midrash Mishlei 9:2 it is said that in the future time [of Moshiach] all the festivals will be annulled except Purim.

They say the Name of G-d (YHVH) has been omitted from the Megilat Esther, but like the Torah whose sum of Yud’s (Y), Vavs(V), and Heys(H) total 90,100, as in the sum of all the positive integers from 1 to 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David, so too do the letter in the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) unite within the Book of Ester.

We know all about the connections of the Torah, the Names of G-d, and the prophecies of the tzaddikim to year 5778 and the coming of Moshiach and the geula (final redemption) and we know all about the connection of the primordial mathematical constant that control spiraling growth in the universe, Phi (1.61803399) to 5778, and that the sum of the letters, verses and words in the Torah is exactly 58 so how astonishing is it the Megilat Ester (The Book of Ester) has the same connecitons.

The sum of the Yud’s (Y), Vavs(V), and Heys(H) in the Megilat Esther is = (1178 + 1277 + 1116) = 3571 = exactly 5778/Phi (1.61803399…). So I guess there really was a reason for concealing the Name of G-d (YHVH) from the corruption of negative influences. Uncorrupted, the Megilat Esther, like the Torah, is imbibed with the technology to bring us together at the right time to bring about Moshiach.

And while the sum of the letters, verses and words in the Torah is exactly 58, the sum of the letters, verses and words in the Megilat Esther is 3.335588, with the numerical value of Mashiach being 358. And this is only the beginning…

That 3571 = exactly 5778/Phi is good because that means that all the YHV’s in the scroll of Esther = Phi17 and 17 is the value of Tov, good, the last word  in the scroll “Charvonah Tzacur L’tov.”

And there is a special place in the 10 chapters of the scroll where the 10 sons of Haman are listed and they are separated by 10 “V’Et’s” (VET) each of value 407, whose square root is 20.17424, the year 2017 CE, coupled with , the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David (424).

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°


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.

Why Are You Crying Out to Me?

The Book of Exodus in Hebrew is Shmot, Names, and that’s really all we need to know. In Shmot 14:15 G-d replies, “Why are you crying out to me? Mah Titzak Elai (MH TZAK ELY)?”

That’s what G-d replied to Moses and the Israelites when they stood at edge of the Endless Sea (Yam Sof) with the 600 Egyptian chariots at their backs. Not a very compassionate response, as would appear on the surface. Yet somehow Moses knew exactly what he was being told and what to do because moments later the sea split about and the Israelites were saved. So let’s see what G-d really said.

Mah Titzak Elai (MH TZAK ELY)?

To begin with the 4 letter word TZAK splits in two the Name ELHYM, Elohim, much as G-d split the Red Sea in two. All of a sudden, things are starting to make some sense, since Elohim is the Name of G-d that represents nature, or the natural cause and effect world where our actions cause a chain reaction of events and where once G-d sets things in motion, He doesn’t intervene, giving man the sense that he’s in control to a certain extent. This is the G-d that Pharaoh recognized, not YHVH or EHYH that Moses knew.

And certainly, Moses knew that the Mah in Mah Titzak Elai referred to the Tetragrammaton YHVH at the level of Mah, zeir anpin, and that this is the level the Israelites needed to be thinking in to outwit them.

And reinforcing that are the initials of Mah Titzak Elai (MH TZAK ELY) which spell Emet (EMT), truth, which is known to represent Torah, Tiferet (Zeir Anpin), and the 42 Letter Name, which begins with E (alef), ends in T (tav) an has 40 letters in between.

We know from the Zohar that Moses was given 173 keys to Heaven, and Heaven is Zeir Anpin and that the Shem Mem-Bet (42-Letter Name matrix) is both Zeir Anpin and can control it, and that the small gematria value of the 42 Letters is 173, so we know Moses knew all about the Name engraved on his staff and how to use all the letter combinations on it. So let’s look at that Name for a moment and see what Moses saw in his hands:








The very last column of the 42-letter matrix has all 4 letters of Titzak (TZAK) in it, and the full sofit value of this column is 2480, the same as the sum of the 5 Names of the 5 Books of Moses, or 10 x 248, the gematria value of Abraham and also of Rachum (compassion/mercy).

And the 3 letters not utilized, Shin (Sh), nun(N), and gimmel (G), the 3 letters of Goshen (GoshNah, GShNH), where the Israelites lived while in Egypt, and when we add 5 (corresponding to the letter hey, H) for the 5 letters in Elohim we get both the full name (GoshNah, GShNH) which as we’ve pointed out in a previous blog adds up to 358, Moshiach, and to the 4 letters on the Channukah dreidel.

But what Moses also saw as he looked at the first 2 lines in the 42 letter Names was:



He saw the word TZAK spelled out before him with an added Resh (R) in between. And he knew not only knew that Resh (R) has the numerical value of 200, as in the simple progressive iteration of the Name Elohim (E, EL, ELH, ELHY, ELHYM), but there were 9 letters in G-d question Mah Titzak Alai? And there are 9 letters through EBG YTZ KRA, with the remaining 5 letters adding up to 216 as in the 216 letters of the 72 Names (triplets) that were also engraved on Moses’ staff and that according to the Zohar he called upon to help split the endless sea.

Before we explore what else Moses saw in G-d’s words, we should note that we can be sure Moses made these self-same connections because according to the Arizal, the 4th plague, the horde (Arov) corresponding to the sefira of Netzach (Victory) has the numerical value of 272 and is similarly broken down to the same iteration of Elohim (200) and to 72, in order to overcome the evil at that level.

And that it is no coincidence that the 72 Names (triplets) are derived from combining the three 72 letter consecutive verses found 4 verses after G-d’s reply to Moses in Exodus 14:19-21 or that 14+14+14 = 42 either. Or that these are the very 3 verses that describe the actual splitting.

Nevertheless, Moses, who insisted Joseph’s bones be at his side would have also known that through the end of the Book of Genesis the Name Elohim was mentioned 156 times, corresponding to the numerical value of Joseph, leaving 72 more times through the end of the Torah, including 42 times between Genesis and Deuteronomy, the Book he scribed himself, for a total of 228 times, corresponding to the numerical value of Etz Chaim, the Tree-of-Life, and of baruch, blessed.

So there we have 3 of the 4 elements Moses used to split the sea all neatly laid out for him by G-d, just as it is today for us: Joseph bones (or righteousness), the 72 Names and the 42-Letter Name. And the 4th element is also hidden within this Elohim schematic.

Since the 42 Elohims are contained within the 72 Elohims after Genesis and Joseph, we are not only left with 30 in Deuteronomy (Mose’s portion so to speak), but we’re given a hint to look within the 72 Names for the Mem-Bet (42-Letter Name).

And sure enough 5 (corresponding to the 5 letters of Elohim) of the 72 Names contain the letters Mem-Bet (MB): the 14th, MBH; the 55th, MBH; the 61st, VMB; the 65th, DMB; and the 70th, YBM. And this tells us a lot.

The value of the 5 names together is 240, that of Amelak (the endless scourge of the Jews) and the numerical value of the word doubt, which is exactly what the Israelites needed to overcome to reality the state of the tree-of-life reality necessary to split the sea. The 4th element was certainty. Not only did they, and do we, need the tools and the knowledge how to use them, but the certainty that they will work for us, that the Red Seas and obstacles in our lives are just illusions waiting for us to see beyond.

Moreover, the 5 letters in the 5 Names MBH, MBH, VMB, DMB; and YBM that were included with the MB’s, spelled YHVDH (Yehuda) of numerical value 30, as in the 30 times Elohim is mentioned in the 5th Book, the Book associated with the sefira (dimension) of malchut (kingdom) and manifestation, and the 42 times the simple name YHVDH (Yehuda), also associated with Malchut and manifestation, appears in the Torah.

So when G-d answered him “Don’t cry out to me” He was telling Moses that you have all the tools in your hands to do it yourself and Moses knew what he needed to do to manifest the tree-of-life reality and split the endless sea when he followed G-d Subsequent instruction to stretch out his staff over the sea.

And if we could see all that Moses saw, we’d also see that he knew he could use the first 9 letters of the 42-letter (Shem Mem-Bet, Ana B’koach) in a novel way (as illustrated and explained in depth in The Genesis Prayer) to create that split by dividing the number 9 by the small gematria version of those 9 letters = 9/.123049027 = 73.141595779 = 70 + PI (the mathematical constant that defines the physical structure of the 3 dimensions, by bending straight lines into circles), with the number 70 corresponding to the 70 branches of the tree-of-life.

And if you think this is preposterous, you really need to read There’s Nothing Random about the Universe; but nevertheless, note that the 5 location of those 5 Mem-Bet Names within the 72 Names (14, 55, 61, 65 and 70) add up to 265, which, as described in that book and in The Divine Calendar, is the 3rd triplet in Pi: 314159265358; the 4th triplet being 358, Mashiach; the 1st being 314, Shadai, the 2nd being the small gematria value of the 42-letters of the upper 42-Letter Name. Moreover, the sum of the two middle triplets is 159+265=424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David.

And as you ponder the endless sea (Ym Sof) that begins with 3.1415..keep in mind the 3 verses of 72 letters and that G-d’s encrypted reply to Moses and the Israelites was found in Shmot 14:15.

And the 5 Names within the 72 tie into Joseph’s bones as well.

If we multiply the numerical values of each of the 5 Mem-Bet Names within the 72 Names by their ordinal location within the 72 Names and take the square root of their sum, we get 113.1415… = 110 + Pi, in other words a reference to the 110 years of Joseph’s Life and the mathematical constant Pi again, and actually to G-d’s powerful 3 words at Shmot 14:15.

Num Value Ordinal Location Val X Ord Loc



















square root:


Moreover, the sum of those 5 names with their ordinal place within the 72 Names was 240+265 = 505, the numerical value of Sarah, the Matriarch, which Moses knew and which we’ve previously have shown in other blogs to be connected to H’Moshiach (the Messiah).

And Moses saw himself.  The numerical value of those 5 Names is 240 and their ordinal value of the 15 letters in the 5 Names is 105, so that 240 + 105 = 345, the numerical value of the Name Moses (Moshe, MShH), the same as the 5th of the 72 names, MHSh.

The 5 names are the 5 pronged crown of the 72, containing the 5 Mem-Bets and within Yehuda (YHDVH), the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).  And from Yehuda descended King David (David H’Melech) and thus Mashiach Ben David, whose arrival we hope to bring about through the proper understanding of these Names and the splitting of our own Red Seas.

In Shmot 15:6 during the “Song of the Sea” and alluding to Joseph of numerical value 156, it says “Your right, Hashem, is glorious in power; Your right hand, Hashem, has dashed the enemy in pieces.” The Zohar explains that the hand refers to the 5 fingers/sefirot (Chesed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach and Hod) and Joseph corresponds to Yesod, completing the 6 sefirot/dimensions of Zeir Anpin, hinted at in the phrase Ma Titzak Elai (Why are you crying our to me?)

But, hey, that’s just what Moses saw, why should we want to see the same thing?

Because when we find ourselves crying out to Heaven and to G-d, and he answers us “Why are you crying out to me?” we’d better be ready to understand all the wisdom and love that he’s packed into that answer for us. Otherwise, we’ll be stuck between the Egyptians and the sea.

G-d wasn’t just talking to Moses, or his generation. He was talking to us. It’s time we carefully learn about the tools and build up our certainty. We’re going to need them.

If you examine the 72 Names array of 8 columns and 9 rows carefully you’ll see that there are only two Names that contain side by side triple crowns (tagins), one is at column 5, row 7, and the other at column 7, row 8: 577, yet another on hundreds of connections to the year 5778 that the tzaddikim prophesied for the arrival of Mashiach, 66.6 jubilee (Biblical 50-year interval) years after the splitting of the Red Sea in 2448.

Today, we are in the year 2009 CE, 5769 HC, with 9 years to go you do the math, especially since the numerical sum of those 4 letters in Titzak (TZAK)
plus 5 for the 5 other letters that spelled Elohim and 1 for the kolel = 666.

Also, for what it’s worth the sum of the gematria atbash values for the 9 letters is 577 as in 5778.
