The Torah is a **248-column x 42-row matrix**, just like the **6-column x 7-row 42-Letter matrix** that the kabbalists tell us acts like a remote control to it and just like the **8-column x 9-row 72 Triplets matrix**. We saw earlier the precision of the sum of the **72** square roots and the sum of the 9 rows of the **72** square roots that together totaled **1000.054** and we are beginning to understand that that tiny remainder of **.054** was left on purpose to match the Phi shift, etc. Now we must explain that in kabbalistic gematria **1 = 1000** because the word for **1000** in Hebrew is *elef* (**אלף**), which is the same as the word for *alef* (**אלף**), the first Hebrew letter with numerical value **1**. The difference between the two words is only the vowels, a series of dots and dashes that are not written into the Torah. The hint here is the **72 **Name matrix is to be taken as a whole, as One, and not utilized as individual Names. It would be like breaking off a piece of your cell phone and trying to text a friend with it.

Does this total of **1000.0** connect in any way to the **1000** letters of the Shema prayer? The answer must be yes. Since the purpose of the Shema is written right into its first verse with “*YHVH Echad*,” G-d is **One**.

__Echad__

__Echad__

The Hebrew word *echad* (**אחד**) means “**One**” in English in every sense of the word: One as a wholeness; One as in Unity; One as in first; and One as in the numeral **1**. The Hebrew word *echad* (**אחד**) has a numerical value of **13**, the same as *Ahava* (**אהבה**), meaning love. The relationship between **42** and **13** is special. Spiritually, it is extremely deep and profound, and numerically it illustrates that **13** can represent **1**, and that the choosing of which letters comprise which words was never arbitrary. When we take **1/42**, which we will see later is also the soul root of the Israelites, as per the Arizal, we get:

Then when we take the number **13** over **42, **we get:

With the repeating sequence **238095** in both decimal results, clearly this relationship between **13** and **42** is not casual. And given the ratios in *the Alef-bet* splitting and the Torah dynamics around **58**, the relationship between **42** and **72** cannot be casual either, since **42/72 = .58333**, which equals approximately **(1 – .42):**

Simplifying **42/72** by removing the factor of **6** from both numbers, the fraction and resultant equation reduces to **7/12** **= .58333**, which equals approximately **(1 – .42)**. This is significant because as will be explained in greater detail shortly, the **22** Hebrew letters are broken down, according to Kabbalistic texts dating back thousands of years, into specifically **3** Mother, **7** Double, and **12** Elemental Letters.

As for those **1000** letters in the Shema and perfect **1000** sum of the **72** square roots, it just so happens that **22,** as in the **22** Letters, in base **2** is **1000**.

We are going to briefly explain about those **3** Mothers, **7** Doubles, and **12** Elementals Letters and how their simple partitioning of the **22** Letters into **3** sets reflects Pi, the **54**-unit shift, and **13** as One concepts. Simply speaking, **(3 + 7 + 12) = 22** and therefore **3/22 + 7/22 + 12/22 = 1.00.** Everyone learns in school that **22/7** is the smallest whole number approximation of **Pi, 3.142857**… what is not so obvious is that **7/22 = .3181818**, and that **318** represents the **318** men Abraham took to fight the battle of the **5** Kings vs **4** Kings and as Rav Azulai of blessed memory points out in his 16^{th} century book, *Chesed L’Abraham*, **1818 **is the value of the **3** iterations of the spelled-out letter *Alef*(**א**), or One(**1**), using the same method we saw with the Upper-**42**-Letter Name expanded from the Tetragrammaton (**יהוה**).

Kabbalists, using the Hebrew letters with their inherent exponential values have been using iterations for hundreds and even thousands of years. These iterations are what mathematicians call Infinite Expressions, another important branch of mathematical studies, which we will use later to illustrate how Phi is infinitely related to One (1). When we freeze an infinite series at a particular iteration, we are taking a partial sum of that infinite series. There can be many reasons for this, though the Kabbalists generally freeze the expressions at **3** iterations, mostly for spiritual reasons, including the **3**-column system that the 10 dimensions of the Tree of Life are connected through, reflecting the **3**-prong balance in the energy forms we call matter in our **3**-dimensional physical universe. This is also why some of the divine Matrices are based on Triplets, and why the Hebrew alphabet can be divided into **3** sets of specific Letters.

The connection between **12** and **22** is much more obvious to us, as **12/22 = .545454**…, a simple representation of the **54**-unit shift we found in the **22** Letter two-part split. And finally, **3/22 =** **.13**636**363**… with **13 **coming up again. This time loosely connected with **363** the numerical value of *H’Moshiach*. The much deeper connection between **54** and **13** will be established later in this paper.

Speaking simply again, **(3 + 7 + 12) = 22** and this time **22/3 + 22/7 + 22/12 **does not equal** 1**, nor** 22**. We already discussed Pi (**22/7**), so **22/3** equating to **7.333**… can be see as representative of **73,** while **33** can be anything really. Remember, these relationships are not proofs unto themselves of anything, yet it is interesting how they keep revolving around one another. The final pairing, **22/12,** is special and helps us reveal a very deep Kabbalistic secret about the **42**-Letter Name never publicized before. **22/12 = 1.833… **The **42**–Letter Name has a total gematria value of **3701**, or precisely **1000** more than the Torah’s first verse (**2701**). At the midpoint of the **42** letters, right after the **21 ^{s}**

^{t}letter and just before the

**22**letter, the total gematria is

^{nd}**1833**, which not only matches

**22/12,**but also matches the

**1833**times the letter

*Samechs*(

**ס**) appears in the Torah. The letter

*Samech*(

**ס**) has a numerical value of

**60**and when we add that to

**3701**we get

**3701 + 60 = 3761**, or the year

**“0 CE”**in the Western calendar, matching the Hebrew calendar year

**3761 HC**. More about this later in the paper. For now, just suspend your disbelief; it is not a coincidence.

Then as if to tell us that this connection to the

**42**-Letter Name is appropriate here, we see that

**22/3 + 22/7 + 22/12**= 12.

**3095238095**or

**12**plus .

**3095238095,**which as we have just seen is the decimal equivalent of

**13/42.**

Remember what we just said about the value

**60**being hidden in the center of the

**42**-Letter Name, well, when we further compare the relationships of this ancient 3-way partition of the

**22**letters, we see that

**22/3 – 22/7 + 22/12= 6.0238095…**or

**60**with

**1/42**.

Finally, let us not forget that:

**(****3 + 7 + 1 + 2) = 13 **(**אחד**)

The 3 Mother letters, *Alef* (א)*, Shin*(ש)* and Mem*(מ), have a special relationship to Phi and the Torah elements. One such example is found in the equation:** (א** x **Phi**^{-1}**) + (ש** x** Phi**) **= 187.028**, the **187** chapters in the Torah and the **28** letters in the first verse. Another example is **(ש** x **Phi ^{-1}) + (ש** x

**Phi**)

**= 670.820**with

**670**being the number of paragraphs in the Torah, and

**820**being the value of the verse Levitcus 19:18, paraphrased as “Love they neighbor as thyself,” said to be the essence of the entire Torah. It is also more fully, 6

**70**.

**8**203… giving us

**708**as the gematria of the upper

**42**-Letter Name and

**203**, the first 3 letters of the Torah too.

__A Deeper Purpose to the Shema__

The purpose of the Shema is to bring it all together for us, with referenced connections to the **72** Triplets through its two paragraphs of **72** words each; and to the **42**-Letter Name and the **42** rows of the Torah through its first **42-**word paragraph; and to the **248** columns through the **248** words in the Shema, and especially though its **6**-word **25**-Letter first verse. For starters. the sum of the 1^{st} and last word of the Shema’s first verse equals **424** including the *kolel* for **1** (*echad*).

It gets much deeper than that and the coding much more profound. There are **13** words—the gematria of *echad* (**אחד**), One—in the first **42**-word paragraph pf the Shema that have the initial letter *Vav* (**ו**). Then there are **42** more of them in the rest of the Shema, for a total of **55**. There are also exactly **42** words in the Shema that have the initial letter *Alef* (**א**). The letter *Vav* (**ו**) spelled-out is *vav-alef-vav* (**ואו**) of numerical value **13**. More about how to use the *Shema* as a portal later, for now we want simply to establish its designed relationship to the concept of One (**1**) and the sequential numbers: **13, 42, **and** 55**.

We are about to see the special significance to the sequence **13, 42, **and** 55**, but first let us use a gematria variation on Number Theory to see how they are related. Using a little known but very revealing gematria cipher we can take the product of (**13 x 42 x 55) **and divide it by the sum of** (13 + 42 + 55) **and get** 273**, the gematria of the word “gematria.” It is also the value of Absolute Zero, **c**. If you think there is the slightest coincidence in this, please review our paper on Time and the surprising mathematical structure of our solar system or on Science, Theology and the Future Holy Temple. We are way beyond coincidences and as we will soon see, about to enter the Twilight Zone of mathematical import.

The article *Et*(**את**) before a word in the Torah increases its importance and significance, as in the role it plays in the Torah’s first verse when it appears before the word Heaven. The numerical value of the article *Et*(**את**) is **401**, so we could interpret the **401**,273 basic elements of the Torah as a visual amplification of the significance of “gematria.” In other words, it may be a hint that we should pay attention to it. It is also at **273** degrees Kelvin where water freezes and –**273** degrees centigrade is Absolute Zero, where all movement in the universe ceases completely.

### 401,**273** Elements in the Torah

Part VI will follow shortly, where we will see how important the role of the combination **13 -42- 55** really is and what it unlocks.
