The Energy at the Dawn of Creation.

The Arizal explains that the Zohar tells us that the Torah existed for 2000 years before Creation, and that it existed in a form in which all the 79,976 letters would appear to be jumbled to us today.  In other words, what is written in the Torah and was frozen in time once the letter were rearranged to form the narrative we know today, was formerly written in a potential state, whereby the events of our Biblical past could have played out differently.  Adam didn’t have to sin.

Nevertheless, he did, and we have to struggled and fight our way back to the Tree-of-Life reality that existed prior to that initial sin.  As part of that process (the easy part) we study the secret coding of the Torah (Sod Torah), which R’ Abulafia of blessed memory calls the deepest level of Torah understanding (that we’re capable of at any rate).

But what are we really doing when we examine the gematria and the permutations of the letters and words of the Torah?

Yes, we are revealing the underlying technology that the Torah was designed with, and occasionally by doing so, yes, we are revealing hidden blessings, prayers, and specific gateways. And yes, with each revelation into the magnificence of the Torah we bring more awe of the Torah and G-d into our lives and the world and thus bring ourselves and others closer to G-d ( a thoroughly worthy cause unto itself).

But what are we really doing when we rearrange the letters according to ancients codes that seem to exist before time? At times, it feels like all the letters of the Torah are on stone wheels, each with all 22 (or 27) letters embossed on the–79,976 wheels in all.  At other times, it’s as if the Torah was an enormous multi-dimensional matrix, with gateways and portals  appearing at the intricate junctions and apexes, each leading us to other portals.

But what are we really doing?

When we reveal and understand the codes that permute the letters, we are in essence re-scrambling the letters to the primordial state they were in before creation, to the state of potentiality. We are connecting ourselves to energy of purity that existed before the sin of Adam, to the energy of the Tree-of-Life. We are connection ourselves to the energy that knew no limitations, the energy that houses all possibilities.

What is this like?

It’s like converting the aging cells of our bodies back to pure undifferentiated stem cells that still have to potential to be anything our bodies need, that are young, disease free, and full of youthful health.

This is what we are really connecting to.  What we do with that energy is up to us.

As for the state of the Torah before Creation, we know, for sure, of the formal order of at least 42  of the 79,976 letters, the first 42.  Prior to Creation the first 42 Letters of the Torah were the 42 letters of the Shem MB, the 42-Letter Name of G-d, which is known as the Ana B’koach. This is why when we do the Ana B’koach (See the book The Genesis Prayer), we often see miracles; we are connecting to that primordial energy of pure potential, which means our reality can shift instantaneously.  This is the power of the Tree-of-life.

When we were given the Torah everything was already set (fixed), and both time and a time-frame indelibly established, events had already played out and future events had already been determined. But…

But we were also given, a gateway out (beyond). Adam left Gan Eden with the Ana B’koach, the 42 letters that tap into  the energy he was forced to leave behind. That 42-letter matrix is still here with us today, and still access all that beautiful potential energy. It is our key back in.  As the Zohar puts it, it is the 173 keys to Heaven given to Moses (the small gematria of the 42 letters totals 173).

This is why we study the codes.  It’s all about the Tree-of-Life.

The Journeys of our Lives

These are the journey(s) of our lives. In the Torah portion Masei, we encounter the list of the 42 journeys the Israelites took during their 40 years in the desert including exiting the exile in Egypt at Pi-Haratha to entering the Promised Land. The tzaddikim, including most notably the Baal Shem Tov, have told us that these journeys parallel the journeys each of us must undertake to return our souls to G-d in purity, and also that these mimic the journeys that we all take collectively from the moment of Creation to the geula (final redemption).

The 42 places were separated from each other by the prefixes to (Bet) and from (Mem) and also by the word journey (VYSAV). The prefixes M and B, together have the value 42 and also reference the 42-Letter Name (the Shem MB), while the word journey (VYSAV) is repeated 42 times in this section of the Book of Numbers, chapter 33. It is repeated another 17 times, the numerical value of the Hebrew word tov, meaning good, throughout the rest of the Torah, for a total of 59 times.

The word journey (VYSAV) is interestingly constructed, as it can be split into VYS of numerical value 76 and then AV also of numerical value 76, and when we multiply 76 x 76 we get 5776, plus 2 for the kolel of the two 76’s gives us 5778, the year the tzaddikim have indicated for the arrival of the Moshiach (Messiah) and the geula.

This makes sense to readers of this blog and of “The Divine Calendar” and “There’s Nothing Random in the Universe,” as we’ve already seen a preponderance of evidence for the date 5778 (2018 CE), but within the context of the 42 journeys, let’s look back to Creation, where the 42 Letter Name comes from (the first verse of the Torah and the first 42 letters of the Torah).

Before we do that we should mention that when we add the 14 times the word “will journey” without the final vav (VYSA) to the 59 times the word journeyed (VYSAV) is used, we get a total of 73 times in the Torah that the word “journey” is mentioned, which is interesting because the small gematria value of the upper 42 Letter Name is 159 and that of the lower one is 173, and the unification of the two brings about the redemption.

This is significant for several reasons: 1) 73 is the numerical value of the sefira/dimension of Chochma (wisdom); 2) The total gematria of the Torah’s first verse is 2701, which is equivalent to the sum of all the positive integers through 73; and 3) The number 9 divided by the written out small gematria of the 42 letters is equal to 73.1415777, a graphic combination of the number 73, the mathematical constant Pi (3.14159…) and the year 5777 (5778).

Thus through the 73 times the word journey is utilized in the Torah, the journey is anchored at the moment of Creation, and extended outward from there, theoretically ending in 5778, So let’s take the year 5776 derived directly from the word “journeyed (VYSAV)” and we see that when we take it back to Creation through 5776/42 we get 137.5238… with 137 being the numerical value of Kabbalah, meaning “to receive” and both 52 and 238 (Rachel) represent Malchut.

It’s all connected, as explained in “The Genesis Prayer,” 137 and 73 are both reciprocals of one another as 1/73 = .0137 and visa-versa, and the total gematria value of the torah’s first verse, 2701 is 73% of that of the 42-Letter Name, 3701.

137 is also the numerical value of the name of the angel of the Torah, Yofiel, and like all the angels represents a specific energy that we feel, yet cannot begin to grasp. Likewise, Metatron, chief of the Archangels, guardian of knowledge and the Throne of G-d, has the numerical value of 314, the same as the mathematical value of Pi (3.14159265358…). He is the key to all Creation, permeates all our existence, and yet is totally beyond our comprehension. When G-d created our world, he first set forth these specific energies as a basis for matter and life to feed off of, a dynamic scaffolding of sorts.

It’s not coincidence that physicists see the universe as 13.7 Billion years old.

Within the name Metatron (MTtTtRVN) we have the double letter tet-tet, which the Zohar explains has the numerical value 18 and thus is chai (life), but this is also the marker for the end of our cycle, for as I explained it to my children, the end of the time-out Adam was given as punishment for forsaking the tree-of-life for the momentary pleasure of the tree-of-knowledge of good and evil.

For you see, as fully explained in the book “There’s Nothing Random in the Universe,” the other primordial mathematical constant that guides life and the universe, Phi (1.61803399…), when raised to the power of 18, in other words (Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi X Phi), equals 5778.000.

And the letters that are left in his name (MRVN) add up numerically to 296, that of “the Earth (HERZ),” the final word in the Torah’s first verse, the verse which, as detailed in “The Genesis Prayer,” also equates to Pi (3.14155) through a simple gematria operation and also in a dozen other ways.

And while we know from “There’s Nothing Random in the Universe” that Pi is also intimately connected to the date 5778, we can also apply the same formula we did with Phi and see that Pi raised to the power of 18 can be divided by 666.52 squared to equal 2000, the Hebrew year 5760, which is 18 years prior to 5778 (2018 ce), and is the year that Rav Abraham Azulai of blessed memory advised the period of Oy and Ashray would begin.

These are the journeys of chai (life), our individual lives and our collective life as a people. In the Hebrew days of the week there are collectively 28 letters, connecting them to the 28 letters of the Torah’s first verse as well, and they add up to exactly 3000 in gematria, as explained in the dailyzohar.com. If we take the 7th day as “the seventh (HShBYAY)” instead of Shabbat, then the total gematria, including the kolel of 6 for the 6 preceding days, is 2701, the same as that of the Torah’s first verse. By the way, the two variations together, 2701 + 3000 + the 7 days = 5708, the year Israel became a nation, 70 years before 5778, with 70 being the expansion of the 7 days through the 10 sefirot (dimensions).

Every week is another opportunity to connect to the full energy of Creation through redemption. Every week that passes is a missed opportunity.

Every week we pass through another cycle of 7, another journey, and must ask ourselves what we learned about ourselves that brought us closer to G-d, through awe, love, or appreciation, that brought us closer to ending out time-out. In explaining it to my children when they asked about it, it was simple. You get time-out from your father when you’ve done something wrong because he loves you and wants you to learn from your mistake (with mercy), and when the time out is over, if you’ve been good, realize the error of your ways, and are in a good place, the time out is over; if not, it gets prolonged.

And to bring it full circle, the square root of 5778/(7 day cycle) = 28.730… as in the 28 letters and the sum of the 73 integers in the Torah’s first verse, from which Creation stems. But we have the cycles of our years, lives, generations and jubilee years (7 X 7 +1 years) to contend with as well. We must use them all to work on ourselves.

5778 years is a long time-out, for us anyway. Let’s make sure we’re in a good place, have realized the error of our ways and are ready to embrace G-d (Our Father) and the tree-of-life reality when it ends.

When the Israelites, left Egypt and stood at Sinai, and last had the opportunity of receiving immortality and the Tree-of-life reality through a reprieve in the time-out, the year was 2448, 66.6 jubilee years before 5778, and 42.4% of the way to 5778. 424 is the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David. There are no coincidences in G-d timetable, His actions, or His Torah. Let’s not let doubts overcome us as they did our ancestors at Sinai.

Spirituality (the realization of the tree-of-life reality) doesn’t just happen; it takes work and time, which is why G-d gave us so much of both. So let’s not find ourselves staring down at 5778, and looking back, saying, “if only He had given us more time.”
Chodesh Tov.

It’s Rosh Chodesh Av, the month controlled by the influence of the Sun, as explained by Abraham, the Patriarch, in the Sefer Yetzirah. This is the Sun, whose surface temperature is 5778 K. Let’s connect to the energy that G-d has given us, and come out of our time-out better for having had lived through it.

The YHVH and the Final Redemption

G-d’s timing can be found in His Name for He and His Name are One. His Wisdom is boundless, yet it’s there right in front of us for all to see, and always has been.

According to the Zohar Pinchas 293, “…For the Holy One, blessed be He, and His Shechinah are voice and speech of every angel, and in every voice and speech of Torah, and in every voice of prayer, and in each single precept, and in every place of His rule, among upper and lower beings. He is the life of everything. He carries everything.”

And in the Zohar Pinchas 294, the spirit of Moses, known as the Faithful Shepherd, continues, “Just as there is no speech without voice and no voice without speech, so there is no Adonai without the Yud Hei Vav Hei [YHVH]…”

Nothing exists or happens without the YHVH thus one would expect there to be much wisdom to be gleaned from it, and indeed all wisdom can be gleaned from it, but even just superficially, we can see and understand how the timing of the geula (final redemption) can readily be seen shining on it’s surface, much the way the Sun’s surface (known to the kabbalists as Zeir Anpin) burns at 5778 K, the perfect temperature to give life to the Earth.

There are 4 spelled-out aspects of the Tetragrammaton, corresponding to 4 spiritual levels:

Chochma (YVD HY VYV HY) of numerical value 72

Binah (YVD HY VEV HY) of numerical value 63

Zeir Anpin (YVD HE VEV HE) of numerical value 45

Malchut (YVD HH VV HH) of numerical value 52

And as you can see there are 9 letter Yuds in the expanded Name, with the letter Yud(Y) being the spiritual seed of the entire YHVH..

And as we’ve explained in The Genesis Prayer and in several articles already: 9/(the 42-Letter Name) = the 70 faces of the Torah + Pi (3.1415926)

9/.123049… = 73.141593

So how surprising is it that when we individually divide the 4 aspects of the YHVH by the number 9, representing the 9th sefira (dimension), that of Chochma/Wsidom, we get:

Chochma 72 72/9 = 8

Binah 63 63/9 = 7

Zeir Anpin 45 45/9 = 5

Malchut 52 52/9 = 5.778

Total: 232 25.778

It’s pretty clear that there is a message within this wisdom.

But if we take the results one step further:

Chochma 72/9 = 8 we get 8/72 = .11111…

Binah 63/9 = 7 we get 7/63 = .11111…

Zeir Anpin 45/9 = 5 we get 5/45 = .11111…

Malchut 52/9 = 5.778 we get 6/52 = .1153846153846…

Or alternatively:

80/72 = 1.11111111

70/63 = 1.11111111

50/45 = 1.11111111

60/52 = 1.153846153

The series of 1’s obviously represents unity, but while there are exactly 115.3846 jubilee years from Adam through 5769 (2009 CE), which just happens to be 9 years prior to 5778 (2018 CE), the 8th root of PI is precisely 1.15383506784 as well.

Things that make you go Hmmm!

The YHVH, 42-Letter Name, 9, Pi, and 5778; All linked together.

And speaking of that, not only does the 4th root of (72*63*45*52) = 57.078…but 5778/173 (the small gematria value of the 42-Letter Name, also known as the 173 Keys given to Moses) = 33.39 and the square root of 33.39 = 5.778

HMMM!

There is infinite wisdom in the YHVH, so what will happen in 5778?

We’ve discussed innumerable connections between Mashiach and the Divine Calendar and the number 8. Moreover, the aspect of the YHVH spelled YVD HH VV HH, of numerical value 52, represents Malchut, the final level (sefira) from which we saw 6/52 = .1153846, along with all its connections to 5778; thus the equation utilizing the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David (424) divided by Malchut, or 424/52 = 8.153846 must mean something to us as well.

The number 6 also represents Zeir Anpin. And Malchut is to Zeir Anpin as Adonai, of numerical value 65, is to the YHVH, thus the simple equation 1/153846 = 6.50000*10-6 is quite telling as well, with Malchut reflecting Adonai

As Moses said in the Zohar,“There is no Adonai without the Yud Hei Vav Hei [YHVH]…”

It all comes together in 5778; the perfect fusion of Zeir Anpin and Malchut in the Tree-of-Life reality, the full manifestation of Mashiach, and all things returning to the state of Creation through the 42-Letter Name, which, as the tzaddikim have said, is so necessary for the geula (final redemption).

The Tabernacle, Creation, and Modern Physics

We know from the Zohar, The Book of Splendor, that the construction of the Tabernacle, Mishkan, is connected to the act of Creation in the first verse of the Torah (Bible).

So let’s examine all that money (metal) collected to built the Tabernacle, Mishkan and see what shakes out.

…….Talents…Shekels

Gold ….29………730

Silver 100…….1775

Bronze 70 ……2400

……….199……4905

Now, it’s relatively easy to see that the 1775 shekels represent and are connected to the 27 letters of the Hebrew alphabet which have a total gematria value of 1775.

Moreover, the 70 talents of Bronze is most probably connected to the 70 Nations, the 70 years, etc, and also the 70 faces of the Torah. And even more so, since the square root of the 4905 shekels is 70.03571 and 3571 is exactly (5778/Phi), or precisely Phi17.

Now, let’s leave the 1775 Silver Shekels out of it for a second since they were for a special counting, and we have 29+100+70+730+2400 = 3329. And since the Torah makes a special point of telling us that the Mishkan was built in the 2nd year of the Exodus, (in 2449), we get 2449 + 3329 = 5778, the year prophesied by the tzaddikim for the arrival of H’Moshiach, the Messiah.

And since a talent = 3000 shekels, we see that there is an extra mixed talent of metal currency that can be separated from the shekels, leaving us with (4905 – 3000) = 1905 and giving us a total of 200 talents and 1905 shekels in all that was contributed to the building of the Tabernacle.

And since we’re looking at the Torah’s first verse, it’s interesting that the 27th letter is Resh (R), of numerical value 200, same as the 200 talents.

Genesis 1:1 BREShYT BRE ELHYM ET HShMYM VET HERZ

And if were to add the 28th letter, Zaddi (Z) of numerical value 90 to 4905, we’d get 90 + 4905 = 4995, which is the gematria sofit value of all 27 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet.

Genesis 1:1 BREShYT BRE ELHYM ET HShMYM VET HERZ

Obviously, the contributions of the Tabernacle are all about the letters (or the light/energy in them).

Is this reaching? You decide since the total value of the verse is 2701, which is equivalent to the sum of all the positive integers through 73, as in the 730 shekels of gold used to built the Tabernacle, and since the square root of 730 is 27.01….

What this also means is that the Torah’s first verse is based on a triangular number, the 73rd triangular number. And we know this isn’t a coincidence because not only is the sum of the first 8 words (33 letters) of the Torah also a triangular number (3003), the 77th in fact, but the 7 words of the Torah’s first verse are comprised of 28 letters and 28 is the 7th triangular number. (For more on this and for a better understanding of the Torah and G-d’s design, see The Genesis Prayer)

So knowing this, if we see which letters correspond to triangular numbers within this first verse, we get:

Genesis 1:1 BREShYT BRE ELHYM ET HShMYM VET HERZ

(BETEEMZ)

These correspond to the 7 triangular numbers: 1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, and 28, which collectively add up to 84, or 3 times 28, a sin the 3 metallic elements of the tabernacle, and as in Pad (redemption), the union of the upper and lower 42 Letter names.

And while the sum of the ordinal value of these 7 letters is 78 or 3 x 26, the gematria sofit sum of the 7 letters is 1905 again.

We discussed numerous times the connection between the brain’s natural rhythm/frequency (timing mechanism) of 54 beats per minute and its relationship to 5778 which is 54 x 107 = 5778 with the 107 triangular number being 5778, but we’ve recently learned that 54 is also the complete cycle of the 27 letters with its returning light of 27 letters (more on this soon in another article). And the standard gematria sum of the 7 triangular letters above is 535, which when multiplied with 54 x 2 or 27 x 4 = 57780, two cycles.

And we know that G-d, revealed by the 4 letter Tetragrammaton (YHVH) of numerical value 26 had a hand in in it. So why 1905?

At the age of 26, Albert Einstein experienced his year of miracles (annus mirablis in which he published 4 earth-shattering papers on the physics of the universe that changed the course of history and laid the foundations of quantum physics, introducing the special theory of relativity, explaining Brownian motion and proving the existence of atoms. And it was on 9/27/1905 on the 27th day of Elul that Einstein revealed the world’s most famous equation: E = Mc2

Energy = Mass X the speed of Light (c) squared

The Torah, Tabernacle, Creation, the 27 Letters, triangular numbers, Phi, the brain’s frequency (54 B/Min), the surface temperature of the Sun (5778 K) and a dream that revealed quantum physics. And what runs through them all: The Light of G-d.
