Let us note right off the bat that this magical cube of **42**, comprised of **27** Hebrew Letters, is in actuality a 3-d matrix, which in turn is called an array. The **27** letters, or force archetypes, are no longer limited to a 2-dimensional line or even a 3 by 9 matrix. This opens up their ability to interact on multiple dimensions at once, and our ability to analyze them. Remember, we are not folding them up into a cube. We are observing a 3-d projection of them from a higher dimensional hypercube that our minds cannot comprehend, much the way the 3-d cube was unfolded into a linear alphabet for our forefathers.

Given that, we have a few further considerations on the magic cube of **42**, or Merkabah.

After the **5 ^{th }**Element was Created, the

**4**wings of the

*Alef*(

**א**) at the level of the

*Binah*hyperspace dimension became the other

**4**Elements of Creation, which were presented to us as the first verse of the

*Shema*or

**15**Triplets with the concealed Upper

**42**-Letter Name; the

**42**-Letter Name or

**14**Triplets; and the first

**11**Triplets of

*Bereshit*; and the

**72**Triplets

*,*collectively known as the

**112**Triplets. Next came the Torah, whose

**7**words and

**28**letters hinted at the structure of the cube within the

**4**other Elements; and whose first

**8**words or

**33**letters that totaled

**3**00

**3**in their numerical value hinted at the

**3**structure of the cube itself; and whose

^{3}**5**words, letters, and verses and whose

^{8 }**2**word values reflected the hypercube origin of the magical cube.

^{10 }**Vectors**

Including the additional corner vector that pierces the central **#14** cube, there are a total of **7** vectors emanating from each of the **8** corners. What is this like? The 7 dimensions (*sefirot*) emanating from the **8 ^{th}** dimension (

*Binah*). There is a total of

**14**vectors pivoting on the central

**#14**cube, reflecting the

**14**chambers discussed in the previous section. Altogether, there are a total of (

**56 + 14**) =

**70**vectors, fully reflective of the level of

*Zeir Anpin*and

*Malchut*inclusive. The

**70**vectors plus the whole cube of

**42**is (

**70 + 42**) =

**112**, as in the

**112**Triplets and the Unification of

*Elohim*and

*YHVH*(

**86 + 26**), or alternatively

*Adonai, YHVH*, and

*Ehyeh*(

**65 + 26 + 21**).

What is this like? It is like the **42 ^{nd}** Name (Triplet) of the

**72**Names (triplets) whose numerical value is

**70**and whose complete value is (

**70 + 42**) =

**112**.

By the way, as Moshe pointed out to me, the **112 ^{th}** prime number is

**613**, as in the

**613**

*mitzvot*(precepts) detailed in the Torah. It is all connected.

How many Names are there in the **72** Names (Triplets)? With the two repeated ones, there are only **70**. Only **70**! Or are there *necessarily* **70** in order to match the **70** vectors and **70** dimensions of unification. The Zohar took note of this and further explained that this is why there were **70** members of the *Sanhedrin*, **70** faces of the Torah, and **70** Nations and **70** languages of our world.

Regarding the first verse of the *Shema* that conceals the Upper **42**-Letter Name, we can further understand that (**15** Triplets + 27 letters in the Cube) = **42**, and that (**28 + 42**) = **70**, representing the three other Essential Elements (Forces) of the **5** of Creation. Moreover, (**5 x 14**) = **70**. Most of the vectors come in triplets themselves given the nature of a **3 ^{3}** cube. In other words,

**3**parallel vectors or 9 letters in each plane. And what is the measure of each triplet vector?

**126**or (

**3 x**

**42**). And what is

**126**but (

**112 + 14**). Therefore, each of the triplet vectors is a conjunction of the

**112**Triplets with the central core emanation of

**14**.

Similarly, the total numerical value of the 6 faces, 12 edges, 8 vertices, and 1 grand cube is **1120**, (**112 x 10**). It is also (**26.666 x 42**). These (6 + 12 + 8 + 1) elements = (**26 + 1**) or **27** cube defining spiritual elements are missing only the concealed central cube of **14** that completes it and elevates it to *Binah*.

The letter *Nun* (**נ**) associated with the cube of **14**, has a value of **50**, as in the **50** Gates of *Binah* and the** 50** years of Jubilee, representing complete completion. The Hebrew word for all (**כל**) has the numerical value of **50**. The Torah instructed us in **2448 HC**, the year we first received it, to count the Jubilee years, one for every **50** calendar ones. When we add the **14** to **1120**, we get **1134**, which as it turns out equals (**27 x 42**), the power of **42** infused in every letter of the *Alef-bet*. Thus, completed with the central power cube, there are now (**27 + 1**) = **28** defining cubic elements of the magic cube of **42**, the **5 ^{th}** Essential Element of Creation.

Since the **27** letters of the cube total **378**, the relationship between the whole cube and the central cube is **378/14** = **27**. The central cube is indeed **1/27 ^{th} **of the whole.

I must give special thanks to Rav Yehuda Tzvi Brandwein of blessed memory for his insights into these matters.

The complete (ordinal and standard) numerical value of the **27** structural cubic elements is **20420**, yet an odd thing occurs if we consider all **28** elements and discount the ordinal value (**504**) for the **12** edges. I do not know why we would do that, but the total then becomes **19980**, or **4** times the value of the **27** letters, **4995**. It is also (**6660 x 3**) or (**3330 x 6**), reflective of the **666** Jubilee years from the giving of the Torah at Mt Sinai on **2448 HC** and** 5778 HC**, when the cosmic window opened for the **3 ^{rd}** time.

The net difference between the two equations above is **440**, and 440 + One(1) = **441**, *Emet*, Truth.

The ordinal value (**504**) for the **12** edges matches the ordinal value (**504**) for the **12** straight diagonals. Please note that there are also 4 cross cube diagonals. This is by design since **504** is (**12 x 42**). What is also by design is that the **33 ^{rd}** unique or 47

^{th}actual doubled word in the Torah has a numerical value of

**504**each, and there are

**50**of them in total 25 to the midpoint location of the doubled word and 25 after it. By the way, the

**42**doubled word is the

^{nd}*YHVH*(

**יהוה**–

**יהוה**). It is also the

**30**unique double word in the Torah. And what is this like? It is like the

^{th}**30**times the name Yehuda of numerical value

**42**appears in the Torah, and it is like the letter

*Lamed*(

**ל**) of numerical value

**30**and of ordinal value

**12**for a complete value of

**42**.

Understand which came first.

And what is this like?

**The Sword of Moses**

It is like the Song of the Sea that we recite on the 7^{th} Night of Pesach and should recite together every Shabbat. It is written in **30** rows and has the sword of Moses, the verse of **42** letters, right smack in the middle at Exodus **15**:**11**. It was **42** verses after the start of chapter **14,** where G-d told Moses to tell the Israelites to camp at Freedom Valley, *Pi *(**פי**)* HaChirot*(**החירת**) beside the Red Sea. Halfway to the verse, **21** verses later, He split that Sea. *Pi *(**פי**)* HaChirot*(**החירת**) breaks down numerically to **5’708** as in **5708 HC**, the year Israel became a nation. It is of note that chapter **14** and Exodus **15**;**11** together reflect 3 of the Essential Elements: the **14** Triplets of the **42**-Letter Name; the **15** Triplets of the *Shema’s* first verse and the **11** Triplets of *Bereshit*, all the while encapsulating the 4th Element, **72** Triplets revealed at the splitting of the Sea.

These are deep revelations. Taken in reverse, the sword sharpens to a point, as *pheleh* (**פֶלֶא**) backwards is *Aleph* (**אלֶפֶ**), the first letter of the Hebrew Alphabet (**א**), expressing the four sides of the sword spreading out from the central point, like a 4-sided pyramid seen from the top. The handle of this sword is the **42 ^{nd}** triplet (

**מִיכָ**) of the

**72**Triplets used to split the Red Sea. When the time comes, this

**42**-letter sequence will be reversed and the

*Mem*(

**מ**) in (

**מִיכָ**) will become a final

*Mem sofit*(

**ם**), representing 4

*vavs*(

**ו**) amongst other things. We mention the 4

*Vavs*(

**ו**

**ו**

**ו**

**ו**) because when taken in reverse, the numerical value of this

**42**-letter verse when the

*kolel*of

**42**is removed is

**6666**, representing the 4

*vavs*, each of numerical value

**6**.

As we just discussed, the Upper **42**-Letter Name of G-d has the numerical value of **708**, while the Sword of Moses without removing the *kolel* has a numerical value of 6**708**, so it is doubtful this is coincidental, nor is it coincidental that there are **670** paragraphs in the Torah or that **67** is the value of *Binah*, the upper level *sefira *(dimension) to which Moses connected.

### The Hidden Gateway and the Chariot

Now notice that the **42**-letter verse of the sword in reverse is split into **28** letters and **14** letters. This mirrors the **42**-Letter Name of G-d integrated in the first **42** Letters of *Bereshit* in that there are **28 **letters in *Bereshit’s* first verse and **14** letters that follow to complete the Name.

Before even Adam, before the beginning of time, the **42**-Letter Name was converted into the first **42** letters of the Torah. For simplicity’s sake, we can envision that conversion as **42** wheels on a combination lock, each engraved with **22** Hebrew letters, and when we turn those **42** dials to just the right combination, all the gates open. Except that **3 **of those dials are never turned, because **3 **letters never changed, the **8 ^{th}**,

**18**and

^{th}**40**This is a code unto itself.

^{th}.Furthermore, those **3** letters are the *Shin*(**ש**)*, Resh*(**ר**) and *Vav*(**ו**), which form the **32 ^{nd}** of the

**72**Names(

**ושר**). Permutations of these 3 letters form the Hebrew word for

*Ox*(

**שור**)

*,*a deep kabbalistic principle that we will not get into now, but it is one of the 4 faces of the

*Merkavah*. We find all

**3**of those letters (#21, #20, and #6) connected to each other on the same (rear) face of the magic cube of

**42**. Collectively the

**3**letters have the numerical value of

**506**, as in the complete value of

*Moshiach*

*Ben David*, the first line of the

**42**-Letter matrix, the kabbalistic term faces (

**פרצופים**), and the sum of the initials in the

**9**spiritual

*sefirot*.

The other oddity in the conversion of the **42**-Letter Name into the first **42** letters of the Torah is the skipping of a specific letter *Hei *(**ה**), the second *Hei *(**ה**) of (**היתה**), the **37 ^{th}** letter of the Torah, of numerical value

**5**. This is the gateway. It is also found on the same face as the Ox (

**שור**), spelling out “The Ox (

**השור**),” and the sum of their Torah ordinal values is

**52**.

Understand which came first.

**Life and the Tree-of-Life**

At the center of the magic cube of **42** is the central cube of **14** and letter *Nun* **(נ**) of **50** for a complete value of **64**, which can be said to coincide with the** 64** codon (Triplets) in our DNA coding and also the **64** codon (Triplets) in our RNA coding, our physical essence and our source of physical life. In the Zohar, *Vayikra *27:240 it refers to the Torah verse *Bereshit* 2:09: “ ‘The Tree of Life in the midst of the garden,’ called life.” The garden (**הגן**) has a numerical value of **708**, which is purposely the same as the Upper **42**-Letter Name of G-d. What can we see at the center in the midst of the garden(**708**)? The cube of life, the Tree-of-life.

The magic cube of **42**, refers to the Upper **42**-Letter Name of G-d, through which as explained the Arizal, all our prayer gets processed. It is the garden, the **5 ^{th}** Element of Creation. What other schematic do we find continuing in the subsequent verse

*Bereshit*

**2:10**? “A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden. From there it divided and became four[

**4**] major rivers.”

*Binah*flowed from the garden and became

**4**(Essential Elements /Forces of Creation).

Where else to we find the garden and the **5 ^{th}** Element of Creation, the Upper

**42**-Letter Name of G-d, as

**708**? We find it in the date Israel became a nation, the year

**5708 HC**. Why was it prophesied to be

**70**years before

**5778 HC**? Because the of

**70**

*sefirot*in the full unified

*Zeir Anpin/Malchut*, the same

**70**dimensions represented by the

**70**vectors in the magic cube of the Upper

**42**-Letter Name of G-d.

What was the year **5778 HC** in the Western Calendar? **1948 CE**, and the cube root of **48** is **3.63424**…, *H’Moshiach* (**363**) and *Moshiach Ben David* (**424**). If you recall, in our previous section in discussing the connection between the **3 ^{3}** magic cube of

**42**and the

**72**Triplets, we said that the sum of the ordinal values all the facial rows, columns, and diagonals is (

**756**

**+**

**756**

**+**

**504**) =

**2016**. Well,

**2016**represents (

**42**

**x**

**48**).

**U’Malchut**

We have examined the interior and faces (*partzufim*) of the magic cube of **42** separately. Now, as a whole cube of **27** numbered unit cubes, there are **9** columns, **18** rows, **16** diagonals and **1** grand cube for a total of **44**, equal to the candles we light on Chanukah, when we connect with the light by drawing down the river of *Binah*. The total value of those **44** elements is **2184** or (**42 x 52**). The value **52** is the numerical value of the aspect of the Tetragrammaton associated with *Malchut* (**יוד־הה־וו־הה**). Moreover, The average of those **44** spiritual channels is (**2184/44**) = **49.6****363**, which could be representative of **496** (*Malchut*) and **363** (*H’Moshiach*).

There is another way to look at the vector system of the cube and that each vector can start at either end of the given Triplet, meaning that the 9 columns, 18 rows, **16** diagonals become **18** columns, **36** rows, **32** diagonals for a total of **86**, as in *Elohim*, and they have a total gematria of (**42 x 86**) = 3612. And like the unification of (**86 + 26**) = **112**, the unification of those **86** vectors (Triplets) with the Upper **42**-Letter Name expansion of the *YHVH*, **708**, gives us (**3612 + 708**) = **4320**.

Is this an alignment with the **432,000** stones of 1 cubic cubit each for the outer border wall of the Future Holy Temple?

Is this an alignment with the operating frequency of *Binah* within our world? Is it **432** Hz as we have identified before?

On the front face of the magic cube of **42**, we have the numbers **12** and **7** side by side. This might be an allusion to the **7** words of the first verse of the Torah and the **12** words in the last. This is the same face of the cube that can be split into **54** and **72**. The Torah’s first word *Bereshit* (**בראשית**) when connected to the last word Israel (**ישראל**) completes the annual cycle of **54** portions, and this circle forms an **11**-letter phrase, “Israel in the Beginning.”

Separating out the first, middle and last letters (**בלת**), of numerical value **432**, we are left with two identical words, “(**אשרי**) *Ashrei,”* meaning blessing/happy. Within each of those words, and in the center of both *Bereshit* (**בראשית**) and Israel (**ישראל**) is the name/word *Asher***,** as in “I am that I am” (**אהיה־אשר־אהיה**). Thus, the ordinal value at the core (**אשר**) of both Israel, *Bereshit*, and “I am that I am,” is **42**.

Is the total **4320** of the **5 ^{th}** Essential Element in alignment with the design of the solar system, given that number

**432**is reflected in the ratios of the Sun, Earth, and the moon? The diameter of the moon

**2,160**miles is

**5**times

**432**, or half of

**4320**. The diameter of the sun is

**864,000**miles (

**200**x

**4320**). Moreover, we can ask if the total

**4320**of the

**5**Essential Element in alignment with the

^{th}**24**hours in an earth day, which is composed of

**86,400**seconds or (

**20**x

**4320**).

Then with every blessing we say and utter the words *Atah Adonai* (**אתה יהוה**) we are invoking that special frequency, **432 Hz**, since they have the combined gematria of (**406 + 26**) = **432**.

All these revelations are just considerations of the numbers, the energetic impressions or reflections on our world. They represent the **27** Hebrew letters, which in turn represent the **27** forces or pressure modalities upon *Binah* and *Zeir Anpin* that Created and sustain our world. The numbers help us understand the necessary order and interconnections between the forces, yet it is through the letters themselves that we must ultimately connect. This is why we began this series with the *Alef-bet*.

The **27** letters of the *Alef-bet* can form a 3 x 9 matrix and give us **9** Triplets, but when wrapped tight in a **3 ^{3}** three-dimensional matrix of cube, we get

**86**Triplets, a whole other level of complexity. There are two simple equations to keep in mind at the core of all this. The total ordinal value of the

**27**letters is

**378**, giving us (

**9**x

**42**) =

**378**, meaning each letter is tethered to the

**42**-letter Name. And the second equation is (

**378/27**) =

**14**, meaning that every letter is also tethered to the core cube of

**14**. Then, let us not forget that

**9/.123049**… or

**9/(42-Letter Name)**=

**73.1415777**… = (

**70 + Pi**). The value of

*Chochma*, the

**9**

^{th}*sefira*(dimension) is

**73**.

The 7^{th} day of Pesach is a time to connect to Moshiach. Together, we can unlock the power of this magic cube.
