It’s Not Your Imagination; Things Are Heating Up!

Preheat oven to 5778K. Mix all the ingredients for 6 days, let it set, then bake in the speed-of-light convection oven at 173 petawatts for 5778 years until it reaches at temperature of 57.78 degrees. Remove Earth from oven and voila!

We found G-d’s recipe book.

Yes, it’s getting hotter globally. Hottest first  6 months on record and July seems even hotter, but this isn’t the weather channel. We explained last year that the 100-year average surface temperature on earth was headed towards 57.78 degrees and this year that steady rise has shifted into high gear.

When in 5-6 years the average temperature hits 57.78 degrees Fahrenheit, it’ll be numerically exactly 1.00% of the Sun’s surface temperature as measured in Kelvins, 5778 K.

It’ll also be the year 5778 (2018 CE) in the Hebrew calendar, the year prophesied for the coming of the Moshiach (Messiah). None of this is new to readers of this blog, but I did want to add a little more insight toward the bigger picture unfolding around us.

As the tzaddikm were well aware and as is written in the Zohar, Moses was given 173 keys, which really referred to the 42-Letter Name of G-d whose gematria value summed up to 173.  The 42-Letter Name is more powerful than any of us will probably know and I’ve personally have witnessed glimpses of that power and how it bends the so-called natural forces (laws) of our universe, which we call miracles, but we’ve written about that and will do so again elsewhere.  Nevertheless, 173 relates back to the sun, whose surface temperature is 5778 K in that the total energy that the Earth receives from the Sun is 173 Petawatts (a petawatt is a quadrillion [or million billion] watts). Imagine that!

That’s a lot of symmetry, considering that according to the sages, it’s the understanding of the 42-letter Name that will help bring in the Moshiach. But there’s more and there always will be more as we can no more comprehend the scope of G-d’s designs than we can His greatness.  If we take that solar power reaching Earth and divide it by the speed of light (299,792,458 m/s) we get 577065885, which is not exactly indicative of 5778 or even 5777.78. Nevertheless, if in the equation we take the square root of 3 (1.7320508…) instead of the ridiculously rounded off and large 173,000,000,000,000 watts, we get:

 the total energy of the sun on earth = (√3  x 1015)/(speed of light)= 5777.5 x 103

 That the square root of 3 would relate to the 42-Letter Name or this solar equation that brings together the Earth and Sun in some sort of harmonic relationship is not so surprising. After all, the square root of 5 is at the root of the Torah’s design as well as that of everything natural in the universe though the constant Phi (1.618033…), and that the number 5778 is precisely Phi18

No, somehow it all makes sense.  Since the dawn of Biblical creation, the earth will have circled the Sun 5778 times (or Phi18 times), equivalent to the surface temperature of that Sun (5778K), lets say 1 degree for each encircling, and during that period, at the speed of light, the Sun sheds 173 Petawatts of energy on the Earth, warming it’s surface (with our help most recently) to 57.78 degrees F, or .o1 degree for each encircling.  And when we divide that 173 Petawatts of energy by the speed of light which is the speed that energy would have traveled to get to the Earth we see that they are related by a factor of 5777.5

Light, Energy, Heat, Sun, Earth, Time; they are all related, intertwined. And they are all winding down, or winding up to a moment just 5-6 years from now when it will all be clear to us.

While the puzzle is being unfolded around us, the answers as taught by the tzaddikim are not to be found in this world, but in the spiritual one as what is played out here is nothing more than a reflection of a shadow there.  The two artifacts we were given to peer into that world are the Torah and the 42-Letter Name of G-d, which is why it’s at the center of the life-giving transference of the Sun’s power to our planet. And this is why it’s apropos that we reveal it at the time of year we read about the 42 journeys the Israelites made in crossing from Egypt to the Promised Land.

The equations above are more than just numbers; they also represent a formula, or a recipe if you will: Preheat oven to 5778K. Mix all the ingredients for 6 days, let it set, then bake in the speed-of-light convection oven at 173 petawatts for 5778 years until it reaches at temperature of 57.78 degrees.  Remove Earth from oven and voila!

The question is what do we get?

The Torah; Beyond the Beginning.

Where to begin? “In the beginning G-d created….” The Torah tells us what to do in its very first word: Bereshit (“In the beginning” ). But the Torah is far from a narrative and the word Bereshit is far more than the beginning of a story. It’s a commandment. It’s a commandment for us to look deeper, to look to the source, to seek out the beginning, and in so doing to come closer to the Creator.

In this blog and our articles, we’ve often selected key words, phrases, or portions of the Torah and dug deep, uprooting profound meanings that help open up the big picture, but this time we are going beyond.  We’re going to unravel the Torah and all its 304,805 letters, 79,975 words, 5845 verses, etc etc and go back to its latent state, when ALL existed in potential and nothing was limited by physicality. We are going to pull back some of the veils to the endless. We’ve been silent for quite some time now, but permission has finally been granted. It’s time.

In it’s physical state the Torah is a document written on 80 sheets of parchment and about 80,000 words long, which makes sense since spiritually, according to the Arizal, the Torah is Yesod of Abba and the numerical value of “Yesod” (the sefira/dimension) that channels forth the shefa (life-force energy) is 80 and Abba is the highest level, but this is just a side note.

This “document” is comprised of black letters and white space, referred to by the Zohar as black fire and white fire, neither more or less significant than the other. Without one we could not see or fathom the other.

There are strict laws in recreating a Torah that a scribe must follow meticulously or the Torah isn’t kosher, in other words completely invalid. For example, each of the 304,805 letters, comprised of exactly (600,000-408) component letters must be formed fully and perfectly and in the precise order; one deviation and the entire document is nullified. He does, though, have a little leeway in how many letters, grouped into specific words, verses, and paragraphs to place on each line, put just so long as each of the columns begin at specific places.  This means he can stretch certain letters within guidelines and also stretch the space between some of the letters again within guidelines.

Nevertheless, in the end there will be 42 rows of spaces and letters, let’s call them collectively “character spaces” in each column, and either 245 or 248 columns per page, as there are always two points of view in Judaism. The standard is 248 columns, corresponding most fittingly numerically to “womb” and “mercy” and “Abraham,” considering that the sum of the Names of the 5 Books in the Torah is 2480. But enough gematria, we’ll explore the significance of 245 columns, and also 246 columns, after we tackle the matrix formed by the 248 columns by 42 rows.

There is nothing left to chance in the Torah, also known as The 5 Books of Moses, everything has a special “harmonic” alignment and thus purpose. The total number of 304,805 letters, 79,975 words and 5845 verses collectively equals 390,625 or 58. That would appear to be more than an accident, right? Exactly 5 raised to the power of 8. Try just calculating that in your head, 5 x 5, now 5 again, now 5 again, again and again 8 times, let alone keeping track of all those letters, words, and verses.

But what if all the letters and the empty “white fire” spaces, in other words, the character spaces in that same 248 x 42 matrix also totaled 390,625 or 58?

Because they do, more or less. It’s because of that leeway that today’s scribes have in stretching the letters and spaces that the matrix created even before the Torah was laid out, in other words before Creation, might not necessary come out to exactly  58, but if properly written it will be close.

This by itself should be astonishing, but there is a deeper reason behind it, one primordial to life and the structure of the universe itself.  And that’s what we’re seeking out. But before we get to that, we need to help ally the skeptics fears about there really being a G-d (or as some put it, a G-d-like force in the universe) and show how the numbers add up.

First of all, let’s note that this 248 by 42 matrix works out to 10416 rows, with 20 (4 between each book and 1 before and after each of the two songs) being necessarily empty, leaving us with 10396 rows that contain at least some letters. So when we divide the 304,805 letters amongst the 10396 rows it works out to 29.32 letter/row on average, which corresponds with the Shulchan Aruch that states that a length of line should be three times the word “למשפחותיכם” or 30 letters more or less (Shulchan Aruch, Yoreh Deah 272:2).

But that’s just the letters and it’s the easy part. Next, we know that there are 79975 words in the Torah, and 79975 words divided by 10396 lines gives us 7.693 (7.7) words per line, which means that there are at least 6.7 spaces between the words on average per line. And thus without any further computation we know that there are 36.0123 character-spaces directly attributable to the letters and words. A nice round number (36) but not the complete picture, which would necessarily be 37.50 character-spaces per line if indeed there are 58 character-spaces in the Torah. One of the essential elements of Torah study followed by the sages for ages has been the use of the initials of words in a specific Torah phrase, and coincidentally or not, the initial numerals in the 304,805 letters, 79,975 words and 5845 verses which collectively equal 390,625 or 58 are 3, 7, and 5, as in 37.5 character-spaces per line.

Now, there are 670 paragraphs in the Torah and there has to be a minimum of 9 spaces between them and a maximum of about 35 and here is where the scribes have lots of leeway. On average, and somewhat arbitrarily, there’s between 17 and 20 spaces allotted to the paragraph separation . Using 17 for the 670 paragraphs, we have 11,390 additional character spaces. Then there are the 20 empty rows at 37.5 character spaces each and you could argue that that is arbitrary, but we already know that it is at least, and also close to, 37.11, so it’s not so farfetched.  Anyhow, this gives us 20 rows x 37.5 spaces, or an additional 750 character spaces.

Then if we add the approximately 28 by 24 extra spaces in the Song of the Sea and the 70 lines by 9 extra spaces in portion Ha’Azinu, we have another 672 and 630 spaces respectively, bringing the total to within about 2000 or so spaces of the total 390,625, easily compensated for by the allowed stretched spacing and stretched writing found in most Torahs. We could easily make it work out exact, but if it were meant to be, as the sum of the letters, verses and words are, it would have been.  We are dealing with the intangible spiritual state and are meant to enter this cloud-like state as Moses did, focused by our certainty and not by a well-lit path.

The 2000 or so spaces can go either way, and thus on average will go right down the middle, directly toward 390,625, which when broken down by gematria spells out “The Crown (625, H’Keter) of Heaven (390, Shama’im).

Thus focused and ascending, let’s continued beyond, where we recall the words of Rabbi Chaim Vital of blessed memory that all Torah light is spread by squaring, and thus we can now see how this matrix of white and black fire was unfolded into Creation.  Working backwards, we can take the square root of 390,625, which is 625, then do it again (25) and again (5) and one more time (√5) for a total of 4 times, corresponding to the 4 Letter/levels/phases of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH).

(√5)2 = 5 and 52 = 25 and 252 = 625 and 6252 = 390,625

It’s not called the 5 Books of Moses for nothing.

This square root of 5 is no arbitrary number, not by a long shot.  Yes, on the surface it’s just some endless irrational number 2.2360… but so is Pi. Nevertheless, √5 appears to have been chosen to define the primordial existence that gave birth to Creation and thus physicality in the formation of the Torah matrix.  A bold statement for sure, but the mathematicians are already smiling because they already know what’s coming next.

It turns out our physicality is indeed defined by the square root of 5. For you see the (√5) is at the heart of the primordial mathematical constant Phi, which controls (dictates) all natural spiraling growth in nature from the petals on the flowers, the branches on the trees, the twisting of seashells, our DNA, and arms of the Milky Way.

(√5 – 1)/2 = Phi (.61803399…)

and also

(√5 +1)/2 = Phi2 (1.61803399…)

And reminiscent of the essential Kabbalistic equation, “He and His Name are One”

we have the reason why the square root of 5 creates natural growth.

(√5 – 1)/2 x (√5 + 1)/2 = 1


Phi x Phi2 = 1

Extrapolating from 1, we get 4

(√5 – 1) x (√5 + 1) = 4

From Unity to the YHVH

So, G-d took this sacred space or dimension and unfolded it 4 times before shaping it into a matrix of 248 by 42 in a proportion of about 6 columns to every row, the same proportion (59%) of verses in the Torah that begin with the letter Vav of numerical value 6. Which leads us to the filling of that matrix, going from a potential state to a physical one, the point of Creation.

After the matrix was filled with swirling white and black fire in very specific quantities, both of which as we’ve seen tie back to the square root of 5, the black fire was arranged according to G-d’s Name, YHVH.

As you can imagine, the shape the black fire took was significant in every detail. Even without the help of the scribes the 22 Hebrew letters vary in size with 2 of them Yud and Vav occupying a single width, 4 of them occupying 2 widths and 16 of them occupying 3 widths, thus once again giving us a unfolding squaring pattern, 2, 4, 16.

For some reason, the fire of the 304,805 letter characters was split into exactly 300,000 of the 26 assorted letters (including the 5 final variations) and 4805 of the letter Pe, or Phe (possibly representing Phi in both its spiraling shape and sound).

Then of those 300,000 letters, 90,100 letters, or 30% of them, were the letters Yud, He, and Vav, the building blocks of the Tetragrammaton, the YHVH, with the value 90,100 being equivalent to the sum of the integers through the number 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David.” (The Messiah).

Sum of integers 1 to 424 = 90,100

    424 = Moshiach Ben David

These 3 letters were arranged in specific patterns throughout the Torah matrix forming along the way 1820, or 20 x 91 Tetragrammatons (YHVH). Now those 1820 YHVH are comprised of 7280 letters, reminiscent of the 7 words and 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse, whose inextricable ties to the 42-Letter Name of G-d and the mathematical constant Pi are pervasive.

We only bring this up to point out a persistent pattern in the way the black fire unfolded within the 248 x 42 matrix. As we said, the first verse of the Torah has 7 words, and the sum of the integers from 1 to 7 is 28, as in the 28 letters of that verse.  Then we have the total numerical value of that verse being 2701, which is likewise the sum of the integers from 1 to 73, the numerical value of Chochma (Wisdom). And then there is the total numerical value of the first 8 words (33 letters) of the Torah, which is 3003, and which happens to be the sum of the integers from 1 to 77, the numerical value of mazal (divine fortune).

This pattern of including all the previous integers starts with the essential Name of G-d, which is injected into every aspect of the the Torah matrix. The 4 letters of the YHVH when spelled out YVD HY VYV HY become 10 letters, just as the sum of the integers from 1 to 4 = 10. When spelled out again they become 28 letters, as in the sum of integers from 1 to 7. And in its first 3 spelled-out iterations the YHVH and thus the energy of the YHVH becomes

4 + 10 + 28 = 42

These are the 42 Letters of the Upper 42-Letter Name of G-d, from which all divine sustenance flows down to us.

This pattern of including all the previous integers (spiritually just representations of specific energy levels) is oft repeated throughout the Torah; nevertheless, we’d like to point out that Torah space is more than space as we conceptualize it; it’s space and time and more, wrapped up in one. Therefore, when we add the sum of the first 7 and the first 8 words of the Torah together with the average of what they represent as the sum of integers:

2701 + 3003 +(73+77)/2 we get

= 5779

This is the date prophesied by the Tzaddikim for the coming of Moshiach consciousness and the Tree-of-life reality. Now, if Torah space is more than space, how much more would the primordial unfolded space-time occupied by the square root of 5 be?

And we find the answer in that the sum of the integers through 42, which is 903:

The sum of the integers from 1 to 42 = 903

903√5 = 2019

2019 CE = 5779 HC

You can read all about these prophecies by Rav Yehuda Halevi Ashlag, etc on our blog and The Divine Calendarin The Divine Calendar and Nothing is Random in the Universe so I’d like to get back to the brand new revelations and the structural essence of the Torah, but we would like to point out that the matrix is a reflection of sorts of the Tree-of-life, of which there are 32 Paths, which we’ve pointed out in other articles corresponds to the 32 times the Name Elohim is mentioned in Creation and to the 5-dimensional hypercube with its 32 vertices and 80 edges and 80 faces.

And one such result of this reflection is found by taking the matrix itself, 248 x 42, or 10416 lines (rows), and taking its square root again and again, 6 times, until it equals  (1.155517…) 32 A meaningless number, whose only significance (to our limited understanding) is that when we multiply it by 50, as in the 50-year Biblical jubilee period that the Torah commands us to to count, we get 57.77588…, yet another representation of the period 5777/5778 HC and of the use of the Jubilee year.  Whether it’s  115.552 jubilee years from Creation to 5778 or 66.6 of them from the reception of the Torah at Sinai in 2448 to 5778, it must all have been designed from even before the black fire was allowed to mix with the white.

None of this is surprising of course, because Phi18 also equals precisely 5778.000 and against all astronomical odds, the only 4-digit numerical strings found to repeat 3 times within the first 1000 digits of Pi, are 5778 and its CE equivalent, 2019, back to back years, a demarcation in time.  But you can read about that in Nothing is Random in the Universe and today, we’re concerned mainly about the unfolding of the Torah, not space-time.

Interestingly, when we take the square root of 10416 and take it again (the 4th root) we get 10.1024 and while 10 universally represents the 10 dimensions of the Tree-of-life and of modern physics, 1024 is precisely equivalent to  322 . Moreover, there just so happens to be exactly 1024 different numerical values represented within the 80,000 words of the Torah.

Now, let’s go back to those 90,100 Yuds, Hes, and Vavs of which 7280 formed the 1820 Tetragrammaton (YHVH) in the Torah.   As you may have noticed when we mentioned 1820 = 20 x 91, the numerical value of the all important kabbalistic unification of YHVH and EDNY (Adonai) and of “Amen (EMN),” there is another synergistic 91 hidden here. It’s found in the simple sum of the whole and it’s parts; “He and His Name are One:

1820 + 7280 = 9100.

Nevertheless, and even as the importance of this is lost on us, there is a deeper significance that we can note. Since there are 304805 letters (black fire) within the 390625 character-spaces, there are necessarily 85820 white fire spaces within the matrix, just about 22% of the Torah spaces.  While the connection to the 22 Letters of the Hebrew alphabet, or as Abraham described them, the 22 building blocks, is obvious, the juxtaposition to the 82820 Yuds, Hes, and Vavs that do not comprise the 7280 YHVH is less so.

Subtracting 82820 from 85820 gives us and even 3000. And what we can take away from this is that possibly all but 3000 of the “empty” spaces correspond to either Yuds, Hes, or Vavs and thus carry the Name of G-d within them, an energy that bonds the letters into words and verses; after all, because of this special design that’s incorporated into the Torah, those 85820 “empty” character spaces correspond precisely with the 85820 words and verses in the Torah.

Words (79975) + verses (5845) = 85820

Empty Character spaces = 85820

YHVH in Torah = 1820

82820 Resultant Yuds, Hes, and Vavs

820 = Numerical value of “Love thy neighbor as thyself”


The Sun and the Moon

Speaking of the 5845 verses, the small gematria numerical value for “the Sun (H’Chamah)” is 5845, which is all the more interesting considering that there are on average 29.3 letters per line of Torah and the days of the lunar cycle are 29.5. Not a perfect match, but if you recall at the outset of their article we mentioned that it is accepted practice to write the Torah with 245 columns as well as the standard and as we’ve seen oh so special 248.  If the Torah matrix were to have 245 columns everything would be crammed into a slightly smaller space, resulting in 7.78 words/line and 29.68 letters/line, but if it were 246 columns, there would be 29.50 letters/line, meaning each line would be representative of the monthly lunar cycle. This leeway provides room for us to think and ponder. It gives us room to explore and find our own way. If G-d gave us a giant clock, Man would probably have broken it by now.

By the way, in case you are new to our blog, the surface temperature of the Sun is 5778 K and the average surface temperature of the Earth will reach 57.78 F within the next 6 years. One big clock.

According to the Zohar, in the time of the geula, final redemption and of the advent of Moshiach consciousness, the Sun and the Moon will be equal. The Torah matrix provides a structure for this to occur; it’s up to us to find it.  But recall, the Sun, represents Zeir Anpin, (a sharing/channeling force) and the Moon, Malchut (a purely receptive vessel), possibly meaning that in the so-called end-of-days, the receptors will be able to share with the givers and a new balance will be in order.

But before there was a Sun and a Moon there was Phi, the primordial mathematical constant that along with Pi and several laws of nature helped bring into being our physical world, once the matrix had been laid out.  Going back to the 248 column structure of the Torah matrix, we note that besides the 390,625 elements there are also the 248 columns and the 10,400 lines (discounting the 16 blank lines that separate the 5 Books). These total 401,273 total elements and

Phi2 = 1.61803399..

401,273/Phi2 = 248,000


390625/(√1 + √2)=1,618,022

And when all the black fire was laid out and arranged amongst the white fire, and divied up amongst the 5 Books in the Torah, all of varying length, the number of chapters, words, letters, verses were indelibly set into place. It’s here that we find that they were all split (actually divided) into specific segments using the Phi proportion. T he first chapter of Numbers (Bamidbar) is 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


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

There should be no doubt that Phi is an integral part of the structure of the Torah matrix or that we weren’t meant to eventually wake up and realize it.  By the way, if we add the 670 paragraphs and the 80 pieces of parchment to the 248 columns,  10396 rows and 390625 elements we get 402019 and the only 5-digit string to repeat in those first 1000 digits of pi is 42019.

390,625 + 10396 rows + 248 columns + 670 paragraphs + 80 parchments =


Everything has a purpose in the Torah.

We’ve breached the boundary of the upper worlds, and thus endless wisdom is available to us, but we’re right at the entrance and must be careful not to drag our negative shells (klippot) and personal agendas along with us.  Walking up is only the first step. It’s what we do from then on that matters.

There’s a lot of math here and the concepts underlying it are very profound so we will take our time in subsequent articles exploring them and bring them into our lives in a more concrete way.

Best wishes and love to everyone on this hillula of Moshe Rabbeinu,


The Future Holy Temple, Part IV – Primordial Proportions: Phi and the End of Days

In our first article of this series we discussed how both the Celsius and Fahrenheit temperature scales aligned perfectly with the specific structural design of the Future Holy Temple and how the Kelvin scale and the surface temperature of the planets aligned with the dates given by the tzaddikim for the final redemption.  Next, we explored how the Temple and Torah formed and further aligned with the multi-dimensional Tree-of-life, forming hypercubes, including one with a telltale finger pointing to 314 (Pi).

Then we discussed how the courtyard and Alter design of the Future Holy Temple mimicked the skeletal bone structure our bodies, and how it all ties in with Ezekiel’s prophecy of the “dry bones” resurrection.

We’ll go back and examine the connection to the mathematical constant Pi and the Torah and the design of the Future Holy Temple and prove that the Hebrew Alef-bet, the Ana B’koach (42-letter Name of G-d) and the Torah were constructed utilizing that primordial constant to at least 6 decimal places of accuracy in a later article in this series, but today, we’ll concentrate on the equally alluring primordial constant Phi and how it relates to the Holy Temple and the final redemption.

So there are 54 bones in the hands and 54 bones in the body’s central column (22 head and 32 spine), and our brains’ internal timing mechanism is 54 beats/minute, what of it?

Let’s first note that the walls of the Holy Temple are 6 cubits wide, so when we add their width to the 312 cubit width of the outer courtyard, we get a total of 324 cubits or 54 x 6 = 324. The number 324 is also 182, or the numerical value of chai (life) squared. It’s also, not coincidentally the numerical value of Moshiach Ben David raised to the 4th power, (4.24264).

Moreover, it also means that the Outer Courtyard of the Holy Temple was designed so that its outer wall perimeter is exactly 64 cubits in total.

When discussing the temperature scales, we noted that 5778 K was the surface temperature of the sun, and that this is suspiciously the same year given by Rav Ashlag, etc for geula, final redemption, 5778 (2018 CE), and that if the surface temperature of the sun were even 1 degree cooler or warmer there may be no life on Earth as we no it at all. Now, as it just so happens, the proportion of the Holy Temple’s Outer Courtyard, 312 cubits, divided by 5778 is .054 or 5.4%, and while 54 x 107 = 5778 and the sum of all the positive integers through 107 equals 5778, the number 54 times 5777.777 exactly 312,000.

The length of 5778 inches itself is exactly 3 inches more than 210 cubits with 210 being the number of years the Israelites were in exile in Egypt, and also the height in cubits in and levels of Joseph’s Pyramid.

If we venture back to the perimeter of the walled courtyards for a moment, we can also see that the sum of the perimeter of the 32 x 32 Alter, the 112 x 112 walled Inner Courtyard and the 324 x 324 walled Outer Courtyard is precisely 6.57784 in total. Coincidental?

Of course, without the walls, the same sum of the perimeters is 1776, as in the date of the founding of the United States of America, and also as in 1 more than the sum of the 27 letters of the Hebrew alef-bet (1775).

Moreover, the exact triple point of water, the term our current physicists use, is precisely 32.018, which not only conveniently still points to 32, but it is also oh so evocative of the year 2018 combined with the number 3 as in the 3rd Temple, which is the 3rd opportunity for us to achieve the Tree-of-life reality, the previous one being exactly 66.6 jubilee years earlier, in 2448 HC at Mt Sinai.

In our previous installment we explained about the 206 bones in our bodies and the various connections to 206 in the Holy Temple, including the collective height of the 5 inner gateways leading into the Holy of Holies.  Thus we can understand the relevance of the equation 206 cubits x 3000 cubits (the width of the full Temple Mount) = 618000 = 106 x Phi, the primordial mathematical constant that controls harmonic spiraling growth in our universe, (.6180).

So given the connection between Phi and 206 in the structure of the Holy Temple and that there are 206 bones in our bodies, which incidentally conform to the Phi proportion themselves, and given what we’ve learned about the year 5778 from Rav Ashlag and others, it’s interesting that 5778/28 = 206.3571 and that 3571/5778 = Phi (.6180339) precisely to 7 or more decimal places. As is revealed in the book, “There is Nothing Random in the Universe,” there are deep connections to the number 28, Phi, and 5778 way beyond the first verse of the Torah having 28 letters, so it’s most probably not coincidental that Ezekiel’s prophecies of the geula and the dry bones occurred in 28 verses, or that time is measured in 28 segments, according to Ecclesiastes (3:2-8).

Or even considering the width of the walled Outer Courtyard is 324, and thus 182, that Phi18 = 5778.000

Therefore, it’s possible to view the 5778 year period as a process whereby we were meant to cleanse ourselves (our souls) to account for everyone of our 206 bones that are to rise up at the end of days.

And, of course, while the 42 Letter Name of G-d, the Name meant to help the journey of our souls and to help us reach the final redemption (the Tree-of-Life consciousness) according to the tzaddikim, is derived from the first verse (28 letters) of the Torah, we should note that 28/42 = .666, the Kabalistic proportion representing both Zeir Anpin and the relationship of the upper to the lower worlds (sefirot). And equally significant is the relationship of 28 x Phi (.6180339) = 17.30 since 173 is the small gematria value of those 42 Letters, referred to in the Zohar as the 173 keys to Heaven given to Moses.

Science and Theology are One; Secrets of the Future Holy Temple

In our last article we discussed how both the Celsius and Fahrenheit temperature scales aligned perfectly with the specific structural design of the Future Holy Temple as laid out by Ezekiel thousands of years ago, and moreover how the Kelvin scale and the surface temperature of the planets aligned with the dates given by the tzaddikim for the final redemption.

Given that, and returning the the freezing point of water, 32 degrees Fahrenheit, we see that the major structural dimensions of the Future Holy Temple centers redundantly and concentrically on the 32 Paths of Wisdom that comprise the Tree-of-life.

As we lay out this structure for you in a 2-dimensional grid, please note that the Temple, like the Tree-of-Life, is multi- dimensional and should always be viewed that way, staring with the fact that 32 is 25, and that 32 represents the 32 edges (paths) of what is called in mathematics a 4-dimensional hypercube.

Though our modern physicists, by and large, agree with the ancient Kabbalists that the greater universe is constructed in 10 dimensions, we cannot even fathom , except mathematically, how a 4-D cube, or indeed any object would actually look.  Nevertheless, in the same way that a 3-D cube casts a 2-D shadow on our desk, a 4-D hypercube does the same in our 3-D world.  It’s by these shadows, much like Plato’s cave, that we can glimpse and maybe grasp that upper dimension.

The following illustrations are just such shadows of 4-D hypercubes on our world, and the reason we need to perceive them before getting back to the temperature scales will be clear in a moment, but keep in mind that it’s only because of light that we have shadows and thus perception in the first place.

One of the shapes that a 3-D cube casts on a flat 2-D page is a square, another is a hexagon, and likewise one of the shadows cast by our 4-D hypercube on our 3-D world is a cube itself (if you follow the outlines in the blue image). Others, include the tesseract, as in the image above (a cube within a cube), and also the double stacked cubes, which once turned on its axis, forms the exact Tree-of-Life depiction kabbalists have been elaborating on for thousands of years.

Since we have a difficult time imagining hyperspace or multiple dimensions, lets look at the simplest schematic of the Future Holy Temple’s layout, which has an outer courtyard that measures 312 x 312 cubits square, an inner courtyard centered within it that measures 100 x 100 cubits square and the Alter within that that measures 32 x 32 cubits square. There is, of course, the Holy of Holies, measuring 100 x 100 x 100, a perfect cube of 100 cubits per side that sits off to the side,  and also numerous other significant structures, but today we are concerned only with the precisely centered concentric ones.

These shadows on our world form another shape: a truncated pyramid, just like Joseph’s Pyramid that we’ve been analyzing in conjunction with the Future Holy Temple. Picture, if you will, the 32 cubit square, flat-topped Alter, widening first to 100 cubits square then to 312 cubits square

The three temperature scales align such that 0 Kelvin = -273.16 degrees Celsius, and 0 degrees Celsius = 32 degrees Fahrenheit = 273.16 Kelvins, and 273.16 = half of 546.32. Thus from 0 Kelvin to 32 degrees Fahrenheit, there are 546.32 degrees Kelvin.

This is most interesting because the number 546 is the sum of the initials of the 10 sefirot (dimensions) along the 32 Paths of the Tree-of-life.  Thus, to the kabbalists, the temperature, which after all only measures energy transference, is analogous to the Tree-of-Life.  Furthermore, 273 is thus the Tree-of-Life cleaved down the middle as described by Abraham 3700 hundred years ago in his Sefer Yetzirah, The Book of Formation.

The energetic connection between 32 and 100 goes deeper than the results on our thermometer. According to the ancient science of gematria, each of the Hebrew letters has a numerical value representing its underlying energy and when the letters spell out a word they impart their combined energy to that word and its meaning. As is well know, the Torah begins and ends with the letter Bet and Lamed, which in gematria have the numerical value together (2 +30) of 32, and 32 squared, the area of the central Alter of the Holy Temple is 1024, or in scientific notation 210, which just happens to be the exact number of different word values in the Torah, 1024.

Now, what makes this especially telling is that a hypercube in the 10th dimension, as in the 10 dimensions that most of our modern physicists believe the universe to be made up of, and as in the 10 dimensions of the tree-of-life that our ancient sages and kabbalists believe the universe to be made up of, has 1024 vertices or points (corners). So one could view (if we had such extraordinary vision) the Torah as a matrix designed in 10 dimensional space, forming a hypercube whereby each point represented a different word value of the Torah.

Now, a little more down to earth is, as we just said, the first and last letters of the Torah, Bet and Lamed, have a numerical value of 32, but they also carry an ordinal value of 14, making their complete value 46, which is that of the Hebrew word for cubit, Amah (EMH) as in the 32 cubits of the Alter.  Moreover, the letters in Amah (EMH) can be rearranged to spell Me’ah (MEH), also of numerical 46, which is the Hebrew word for 100, so both cubit and 100 occupy the same vertex (point) on that 10-D hypercube and both connect directly to the point occupied by the number 32.

Now, since envisioning this in a flat two dimensions would be shortsighted, and one of the secrets of the structure of the Future Holy Temple, is revealed by adding the 3 concentric central components of the Temple together. The base measure of the Alter cubed, 323 plus the measurement of the Inner Courtyard cubed, 1003 plus the Outer Courtyard cubed, 3123 = 31404096, which is precisely 31400000 plus 4 x 322, or 4 times the number of word values in the Torah, and thus in scientific notation 212.

The number 314 is quickly recognizable as the mathematical constant PI, but also the numerical value of the Name of G-d Shadai (ShDY) found on every mazuza, and it is also that of the Archangel Metatron, guardian of knowledge. And when you connect this intrinsic cosmic design to the proper  sequence of Holy Names, you have the flow of the Divine Life Force (the Shefa) that sustains all existence.

Moreover, 312 is just 1 of the 1024 word values in the Torah, but individual words with the value 312 are found 128 times in the Torah and that is 32 x 4 times—probably not a coincidence, right?  Also, the 312th word value in the Torah is 314, also found 128 or 4 x 32 times in the Torah.

The Torah and divine structure of the universe is nothing if not awe-inspiring.  And the Future Holy Temple will be our bridge between the Tree-of-Life and our limited world of illusions.
