If our thoughts, minds and imagination aren’t limited, why should the Torah be? Just because the part we can see is physically constructed of a set number of letters and spaces laid out in a definitive matrix, why can’t there be more there than meets the eye.

Let’s say we can expand the Torah Matrix of** 248 **columns by** 42 **rows**, **totaling** 10416** lines, beyond their arbitrary artificial borders. Let’s say we did it **7** fold, or** 7** times, as in the time cycle of **7** with which for spiritual reasons we Biblically count our days, weeks, and jubilee years. The cycle of 7 is a spiritual pumping mechanism in which every Shabbot the holy sparks we’ve uncovered that week are raised up (as if by elevator) and deposited above, exchanged for spiritual sustenance before we descend again for the next 6 days.

If we did expand the Torah **7** fold, we’d get **10416 x 7 = 72912**, whose square root is **270.222**, evocative of the **22** and **27** building blocks of the Hebrew alphabet, which are the prima fascia physical manifestations of the primordial black fire, and it’s also evocative of the number **2701**, the numerical value of the Torah’s first verse.

Sure, this expansion is arbitrary, but in a Torah model that we already know works out two different ways to exactly **5**^{8}, why would we think there is any way that the Torah is meant to be simply 2-dimensional?

So for arguments sack, let’s say that the Torah matrix of 248 x 42 is 7 layers deep. It could be **70**, or could be whatever, but at 7 levels deep we know that there are 72912 character spaces in a long narrow slab like shape. And while we’re at it, why can’t we fold that slab over, twist it, turn it into a ring, a mobius strip, or torus? We can of course, and it would never change what we see on the surface: “In the beginning G-d created Heaven and Earth…”

So what if the 42 rows times the number of columns x 7 layers worked out to a precise–we won’t say perfect, because the Torah is always perfect–**72,000** lines? What would that mean? For starters, if we divide the cubic volume of **72,000** lines by **7** (it’s depth) and by **42** (it’s height), the resultant length of the Torah would be a very plausible **244.8** columns, given that most current Torahs are either **245** or **248** columns in length. These **244.8** columns are, of course, so reminiscent of the year **2448** which is when the Israelites received the Torah at Mt Sinai.

Remember, this is hypothetical. Nevertheless, let’s take those **72,000 **lines at the given** 29.31944** letters/line which we’ve **previously showed** to be the Torah’s average per line. It works out to** 2111000** letters. Then, if one letter were to equal one day in time, the **72,000 **lines would be equivalent to** 5779.50** years, or in the Western calendar, the year** 2019 CE**, as constantly keeps coming up for the final redemption (*geula*), and as in line with the prophecies of the tzaddikim.

In keeping with the concept of cycles and time, let’s see if this relates to the lunar months upon which the Hebrew calendar is based. Since there are not 29.319 days in a lunar month, but actually 29.53059 days/month, the resultant 5779.5 years is equal to** 71485** lunar months. And the difference between** 72,000 **and** 71485** is** 515**, which is analogous to the **515** times that Moses prayed to enter the Promised Land, which, according to the sages, would have brought the final redemption right then. It’s also notably akin to the **515** hours between Rosh Hashannah (head of the lunar/solar year) and Hoshana Rabba (the checking of the lunar shadow and the sealing of our annual fate). Once again, cycles, this time annual.

Nevertheless, let’s get back to our primordial space/time unit that the **Torah matrix was designed upon**, the square root of 5. One of the fundamental Names of G-d, the “I am” in “I am that I am,”* Ehyeh ( EHYH)* when spelled out in its highest form has a numerical value of

**161**and

**161/√5 = 72.00**, evocative for sure of the

**72**Names of G-d that were physically constructed from the 3 consecutive

**72**-letter verses of Exodus that bridged the Red Sea (Endless Sea).

We can thus say that this matrix of** 72,000** character spaces is comprised of **1000** spatial units of *Ehyeh*(**161/√5 **) , or **1000 x 72.00. **Think about it because this is not an easy simple concept and it’s a very different way to conceive of the Torah and indeed of time/space. The Names of G-d are not static letter written on sheet of parchment.

Obviously, these **72** Names (triplets) existed spiritually long before the black fire coalesced at Creation and we see that the collective sum of the square roots of the individual **72** Names is **720.0**, or **10** times **72.00**, which is** 10** times **161/√5** which is the numerical equivalent of the “spiritual space” of *Ehyeh* in each of the **10*** sefirot* (dimensions) that comprise the Tree-of-life. There are also **10** letters in *Ehyeh ( ELP HY YVD HY* spelled out, reflecting its expansion throughout the

**10**sub-

*sefirot*(dimensions) of each dimension.

Please note that the 72 Names, like the Torah and the 42-Letter Name of G-d are designed to form a specific matrix, an 8 column by 9 row one, and that when sum the collective square roots of each of the sum of the numerical values of the names in the 9 rows, we get improbably **280.0**, the counter part to (**1000 – 720.0**). Please recall that the expanded **72,000** character Torah matrix is** 1000** units of *Ehyeh*.

If the** 72** triplets were set in any other matrix, this would not have worked out this way, and neither would the fact that there are only two places amongst the 72 triplets where letters have back to back triple* tagin* (crowns): column **5**, row** 7** and column **7**, row **8**, or **5-7-7-8**. **5778 HC (2018 CE)**, anyone? Don’t forget **5778** years are just **5778** cycles of Earth circling the sun whose surface temperature is **5778 K**.

As we enjoy the intense celestial light shows presented by the **record solar flares** being shot directly from the Sun to the Earth this year, do we have any doubts that there isn’t a greater design purpose here?
