## The Entrance; A Step Forward and Upward.

The article picks up our series about Joseph’s Pyramid and its connection to the Future Holy Temple, which we left off late last year (2009).  In it, we illustrated a possible design connection to the 6 sefirot (dimensions) of Zeir Anpin (the spiritual linkage between the upper world and our world as defined by the Tree-of-Life) with the placement of the extra wide 50-inch masonry band at the pyramid’s 35th level. It split the pyramid neatly into 1/6th and 5/6th of its height, which itself is a reference to relationship between the Hebrew letters Vav (V) of numerical value 6 and the letter Hei (H) of numerical value 5, the two final letters in the Tetragrammaton (YHVH), which, as we’ve discussed previously, are at the core of both the pyramid and certainly the Holy Temple.

If we apply that same split to the width of the pyramid’s base, 330 cubits, we’d have 55 cubits and 275 cubits respectively. And while 275 corresponds to the full value of the 4 expanded aspects of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) from which the holy cubit (27.5 inches) derives (see previous articles about the holy cubit for details), 275 is also 10 times 27.5, a reflection of the full 10 sefirot (dimensions) in their completion.

So knowing that the number 55 (twice 27.5) may play a part in the design structure of Joseph’s Pyramid. Let’s revisit the secret entrance to the pyramid, which is exactly 55 feet off the ground.

First of all, as we recently did with teh Washington Monument’s base of 55 ft wide and its capstone of 55 ft high, let’s note the wonderful symmetry of 55 ft being the exact square root of the the pyramid’s base perimeter, 3025 feet. Obviously, this was no design fluke, any more than it was with the Washington Monument. Nor was it a fluke that the base of the pyramid’s South side, 756.25 feet, is also the exact square of the 27.5 inch cubit, in other words:

Holy cubit = 27.5 inches

Holy cubit x Holy cubit in inches = (27.5 x 27.5) = 756.25 = Pyramid Base in ft

And

756.25 x 4 sides = 3025 = Pyramid Perimeter = 552

And Holy cubit + Holy cubit = (27.5 + 27.5) = 55

Or alternatively

55/2 = 27.5.

The secret entrance to the pyramid lies 55 ft straight up the steep highly polished face of the pyramid and was hidden by a massive hinged stone door, seamless and flush to the face. It guarded the secret entrance for thousands of years, and was never actually revealed beyond a need-to-know basis. This is why in 820 CE, Caliph Al Mamoun had to blow a hole in the side of the pyramid in order to open it  to the world.  He found no gold inside, nor even a King’s mummified body. Indeed, no artifacts or bodies were ever concealed or found within the great pyramid.  All the secrets were locked within its measurements and unlocked by knowing the measure of the Holy Cubit, itself only recently revealed.

Today, with the magnificent multi-ton casing stones stripped away by earthquakes, time, and urban planners who used them to build mosques in Cairo, we can see and metaphysically enter the Pyramid the proper way.  What we find first is that on the 19th level of the masonry, 55 ft up, and 24 ft off center from the Pyramid’s exact central axis, is the proper gabled entrance to the Pyramid, with the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) engraved above it, the true guardian of the secrets.

Of course, 55 feet being exactly equal to 24 cubits is just another bit of beautiful symmetry incorporated into its design. And this symmetry connects us to the Future Holy Temple, which is the whole reason we’re writing about the pyramid and may be the real reason the pyramid was constructed in the first place.  In a subsequent article  we’ll explain the reason that the upper platform of the Future Holy Temple’s centrally located Alter measures 24 x 24 cubits and telescopes down to a base of 32 x 32 cubits.  For now, let’s just note that they are connected.  Don’t forget, that since 24 cubits = 55 feet, the upper platform of the centrally located Alter of the Future Holy Temple measures 55 ft x 55 ft.

Which means that the mysteriously dimensioned Washington Monument of base 55 ft x 55 ft would fit seamlessly atop the Alter of the Future Holy Temple.  We can ask ourselves why? Why does this Egyptian Obelisk at the center core of the US power base connect to the Great Pyramid in Egypt, at the exact center of the world’s land mass, and why is it designed to fit snugly atop the Alter at the exact center of the Future Holy Temple, the nexus point connecting our world and the spiritual one.

As we’ll explain in future articles the final gate to the Holy of Holies is the Gate of 42, all the other Gates of the Future Holy Temple being a full 50 cubits in height.  But for now, lets just note that 50 cubits = 1375 inches, and not only does the last 3 lines of the Holy 42-Letter names of G-d (Ana B’koach) sum (906+230+239) numerically to exactly 1375, but

The pyramid’s base/the Washington Monument base = 756.25/55 ft = 13.75

Alternatively,

the pyramid’s base/it’s entrance height = 756.25/55 ft = 13.75

And half a cubit = 27.5/2 = 13.75 inches

Briefly, the measure of the 50 cubits is its connection to the 50 gates of Binah, the upper spiritual dimension of Understanding, and should be noted if one wants to use the last three lines of the Ana B’koach as a gateway.  This is also an allusion to the 50-year jubilee period that the Torah commands us to count.

As for the hidden entrance 55 ft up being on the 19th level of the pyramid is not so surprising to those initiated to its secrets, or entrusted to keep its secrets.  As the kabbalists well knew back then 55 is numerically in Hebrew represented by the letters Nun (50) and Hei (5) and the ordinal value of Nun (14) and Hei (5) together sum to 19.  Meanwhile, it was also well know that the two Letters Hei (H) of the YHVH were both gateways and while the lower Hei(H), representing the world of Malchut, maintains its value of 5, the upper Hei(H), representing Binah rises to the level of 50. Together, they are 55.  The secret to all this is found in Genesis 42:2, when Jacob tells his sons to go down to Egypt, and thus begin the 210 years of exile there.   I will explain this in another brief article shortly, for now, please just note that the verse begins with the Hebrew word Hineh (HNH) containing the 2 gates (HH) and the (NH).

Given the spiritual importance of  Alter of the Future Holy Temple, and of any  entrance, it’s not so surprising the the pyramid’s entrance was hidden 55 feet high, especially with what we know (and will reveal in subsequent articles) about the advanced scientific knowledge programmed into the pyramid’s dimensions.

Nevertheless, before we actually enter the pyramid we should ask what the simple connection is between: the pyramid’s capstone being 32 ft x 32 ft; and the Future Temple’s Alter being 32 cubits x 32 cubits at its base; also with the Alter’s summit platform being 55 ft x 55 ft; and the base of the entire pyramid being 55/2 ft x 55/2 ft; and with the entire pyramid’s base perimeter (3025 ft) also being 55 ft x 55 ft.

Basically what’s the deeper, spiritual, connection between 32 and 55?

It’s Kavod, G-d’s Glory.

The numerical value of Kavod (KBVD) is 32 and when you add its ordinal value you get 55, so both these figures were intertwined into the pyramid’s structure to represent the Glory of G-d,.

The great Pyramid never stood for some Egyptian Pharoah, who never occupied the Pyramid. When Al Mamoun blasted his way in and the 3 gigantic granite plugs were remove from the ascending passage, all the chambers were empty–no pharaoh, no retinue, no gold, no hieroglyphics, nor any carvings of any kind, just lots of secret knowledge hidden in the pure numerical dimensions.

That’s not to say there was no power there, just none tied to pagan gods of beliefs.

## Reflections of the Reflecting Pool.

It came to my attention this week that the giant Reflecting Pool that lies in the central axis between the Washington Monument and the Capital Building is 2300 x 150 feet. At first I dismissed it, even as they pointed out that 2300 x 150 = 345,000 sq ft and that 345 is numerical value of Moses. But on further reflection, I realized that 2300 = 20 x 115 and as we’ve been discussing in the last few articles, the value 20 is synonymous with the highest, crowning sefira (dimension) of Keter, and 115 is the number of jubilee years (Biblical 50-year interval) from Adam to the prophecies of Mashiach (the Messiah) in our generation, specifically 5778 (2018 CE).

Still, I didn’t consider it worth mentioning until I further realized that 2300  + 150 = 2450, and by removing the kolel of 2, we get 2448, as in the year of the exodus from Egypt and the reception of the Torah at Sinai in 2448 HC. Moreover, both 2448 and 2450 equal 49 jubilee years, which we know from the sages correspond with the 49 gates of negativity that the Israelites were at before they crossed the Red (Reed) Sea.

Now, the Torah commands us emphatically to count jubilee years and this connection between the measurements of the Reflection Pool and to both times that the window to the Tree-of-Life reality is said to have opened and is predicted to open again is a little suspicious.  Even more so, when we consider that there are exactly 66.6 jubilee years between those 2 dates and that the Washington Monument is 6660 inches tall.

Nevertheless, I held off writing about this until in a dream last night I saw in a straight line, just as it’s actually laid out, the 541 room Capital Building, the Washington Monument (the giant Egyptian Obelisk) and the 2300 foot long Reflecting Pool just beyond it. It dawned on me then that the US Capital was purposefully designed to reflect these aspects of the Exodus from Egypt across the red sea in 2448 HC, to the Promised Land, Israel, whose numerical value is 541, and who is symbolically represented by the Star of David (Magen David), a symmetrical 12-gonal star that is mathematical comprised of 541 points.

But Why?

## The Monument is Giving Up its Secrets!

There’s more to the Washington Monument than we first revealed, but more important is what it connects us to as a metaphor: the central axis of the Tree-of-Life; the 42-Letter Sword of Moses; the 10 Commandments; and even Joseph’s Pyramid and the Future Holy Temple. It’s not as odd as it sounds and we’ll explain all these concepts and we promise we’ll then segue into them in subsequent articles with much fuller explanations.

Since the Monument was built to resemble a giant Egyptian obelisk dedicated to the sun, let’s start with the word Cap, as in capstone, which is spelled (C-P). As per the Arizal, the letters CP are two of the revolving 7-letter sequence that connects to the energy of and spiritually controls the influence of the 7 planets CPRTBGD; they are the first two when it comes to controlling the Sun, whose surface temperature as we’ve previously noted is 5778 K.

Here is a secret about the letter Caf (CP). While its numerical value sofit is 820, the same as the all-important phrase at Vayikra 19:18, paraphrased as “Love thy neighbor as thyself,” Caf (CP)’s ordinal value is 28, making its’ complete value (820+28) = 848, or 2 x 424, the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David (the Messiah).

Nevertheless, besides representing Keter(CTR), the crowning sefira and besides also representing the Sun, as explained by Abraham, the Patriarch in his Book the Sefer Yetzira,” , the letter Caf (C) when spelled out (CP) also spells out the word for palm, as in the palm of our hands.

Thus our 2 palms obviously connect with the two 424’s, but they also connect with our 10 fingers, 5 on one side, 5 on the other, like the 10 sefirot, 10 Commandments on the 2 tablets, and like Abraham’s description, “5 on one side, 5 on the other, cleaved down the middle.” And the reason this is so significant will become clear once we examine why the 4 bases of the Washington Monument all had to be 55’ long.

Meanwhile, the Zohar supports this revelation in that in portion Ekev it states emphatically that the palms connect to the 14 joints of the fingers and that there are 28 joints in both hands, which is the numerical value of Koach, power.

Like the weight of the aluminum capstone at the tip of the Washington Monument (6.25 lbs) the ratio of its capstone (pyramidian) height to its base is also 34.45/55.125 ft = .625, reinforcing the image of the capstone pyramid as “H’Keter (the Crown)” of numerical value 625. It also connects it the Torah, whose square root of its total number of words, verses, and letters is exactly 625.

Just in case you think the Masons accidentally hit upon this ratio, please note that the ratio of the bases of the entire Monument to that of the capstone are also 34.45/55.125 ft = .625,

Another very significant and telling ratio chosen by the Monument’s architects is given by the Monument’s height to its base is 555/55.5 ft = 10 for a ratio of 10 to 1, or inversely 1 ft of width for every 10 of height, a very steep angle indeed.  More significant than its angle of inclination is its similarity of structure to another Keter that involves 10: The 10 Commandments.

The 10 Commandments (Utterances) found in the 13 verses of chapter 20 (the numerical value of the Hebrew letter Caf) of Exodus consist of exactly 620 letters, the numerical value of the word Keter and of the Hebrew word for 20 (Esrim), an obvious allusion to the point the Israelites had reached as they were being offered the Tree-of-Life reality. Nevertheless, the similarity in structure is delineated by the 62 letter Yuds (of numerical value 10 each)­­—the first letter of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH)—for a total of 620 (Keter once again), meaning that 1 in 10 of every letter in the 10 Commandments is the letter Yud(Y) of numerical value 10.

Like the 2 palms and the 2 sets of Tablets given to Moses, there are 2 recitals of the 10 Commandments in the Torah, for a total of 20, one in Exodus and the other in Deuteronomy. While the first has 620 letters, the second has 708 letters, with 708 being the numerical value of the Upper 42-Letter Name (the 42 letters of the 3 iterations of the spelled out Tetragrammaton (YHVH). We only bring up the 42 Letters because there are 42 Letters in the names of the 11 sefirot of the Tree-of-Life, the central column of which the Washington Monument may be a metaphor.

And between the 2 recitals there are 130 Yuds(Y) with 130 being the numerical value for Sinai and for (Sulam) ladder. And while some say that 708 relates to 5778 and 5708, the year Israel received statehood (70 years before 5778 as prophesied in the Zohar 2000 years ago, there is a less subtle connection between 5778 and the 10 Commandments. The first set, found at Exodus 20:2 is located exactly at the 107007th letter in the Torah or the 107000th letter from the word Bereshit (“In the Beginning”), and 5778 is the exact sum of all the positive integers from 1 to 107.  This obviously can’t be coincidental, and as divine confirmation the first 2 words of these 10 Commandments “Anochi YHVH (I am G-d)” have the exact numerical value 107, and they contain the first 2 Yuds(Y) of the 62, back-to-back right in their middle (ENCY YHVH). Moreover, these 2 words (I am G-d) have an ordinal value of 62.

And by the way, the last word in the 10 Commandments has the newly revealed gematria sofit sofit value of 820, the same as Caf (CG) and of the singular Torah verse of unconditional love, as mentioned above.

Thus the Monument can also be seen as a giant letter Vav(V), which in Hebrew is a vertical line, capped by the Hebrew letter Caf (C) and as any Kabbalist knows CV of numerical value 26 represents The Tetragrammaton (YHVH), the ineffable Name of G-d associated with the 6 sefirot (dimensions) bundled together and called Zeir Anpin, metaphorically the vertical pipeline from our world into the upper spiritual (Heavenly) one.

And speaking of metaphors, while the Washington Monument is found at the edge of the reflecting pool at NW 15th street, the 42-letters Sword of Moses is found right after the crossing of the Red Sea (Yam Suf or End Sea) at paragraph 42 of the Book of Shmot, Exodus 15:11.  Appropriately enough, the sword is tipped with the word and letter Alef, which is shaped like a X comprised of 4 component letter, 2 of which are the letter Yud(Y). If you look upon the monument as a 4-sided sword, you’ll see the X formed by the 4 angles at the top.

There is one more monumental connection to make, of which there is no doubt the Masons were aware, for, you see, the entrance to the Great Pyramid (referred to as Joseph’s pyramid in the series of articles we began late last year and hope to continue with soon as a prelude to The Future Holy Temple) is 55 ft off the ground, and that pyramid too had a special capstone high atop of it. Furthermore, the ratio of the height of the Washington Monument to the Great Pyramid is precisely 15/13 or 1.1538 as in the 115 jubilee years from Adam to the year prophesied for the 3rd opportunity of the Tree-of-Life reality, 5778.

And if you don’t think the architects of the Monument had some inkling as to what they were connecting to, please note that the perimeter of the capstone is 137 ft and 137 is the well-known numerical value of Kabbalah. Moreover, Moreover, the Base of the Great Pyramid is 13.7 times that of the Washington Monument, a giant Egyptian Obelisk. Furthermore, the resultant diagonals of the capstone are 77.85 (NE-SW) and 78 (NW-SE).

Moreover, the dimension 55 ft (5 on one side, 5 on the other, cleaved down the middle) hides the secret of the ancient cubit needed for the building of the Future Holy Temple, and 555 of those cubits equals 1271, the year the Zohar mysteriously reappeared in Spain.

And the Future Holy Temple will be 100 of Caf (CP) cubits high, once again connecting with Keter and that Capstone.

Nevertheless, 555 ft = 242.18 cubits, and since the year 5778 HC is also the year 2018 CE, this year of prophesy is exactly 242 years after the founding of the United States of America in 1776.

Food for thought.

In the coming weeks we’ll be exploring in depth the various avenues brought about from the various metaphors and connections laid out above.
