What can the 22 letters themselves tell us without relaying on words or verses. Each letter has a unique energy value and thus unique numerical valuations of that energy depending on which cipher is being used to read them. And each letter has as a quasiunique name. I say quasi, only because a few of them can be spelled different ways depending if the letter yud (Y) is included or not., and there no real right way to spell those letters because in different situations they are meant to be spelled different ways depending on whether the support of the yud, representative of the sefira of chochma, is needed. Names are very important as they define what something is and should be chosen carefully. When it pertains to Torah. like the names of the Patriarchs, the names themselves are gateways, or in an analogy consistent with modern technology, the names are cosmic web addresses, each socially networked to other names and addresses. Together they form a giant tree with myriad branches to be explored.
For the charts below, we’ve selected the most common spellings for the half dozen names that can have multiple versions and switched to a different version when it seemed to make sense. It’s not so much poetic license as it is trying to follow a predetermined trail by exploring the different branchings until we find the one with the choicest fruit.
As you can in the first chart, the sum of the 22 names of the 22 letters equals exactly 4242, not only a double representation of the number 42, but one that included 424, the numerical value of Mashiach Ben David. All the possible variations came to 42** and the next most likely branch summed to 4248, one that combined 42 and 248, the numerical value of Abraham. This particular one was further interesting because the squares of the 22 different names plus the number 42 added up to exactly 1395000 or 1000 (keter) x 1395, and 1395 is the sum of the (numerical values of the 6 Patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, and Aaron. (see chart #2).
Why would that be? Why would the names of the 22 letters link up with the names of the 6 Patriarchs. we can only speculate, but if we add the names of the 4 Matriarchs (Sarah, Rivka, Rachel and Leah), we find that the 10 together add up to 2481 or 10 x 248 (Abraham/mercy), which also happens to be the value of the sum of the names of the 5 Books of the Torah (Bereshit, Shmot, Vayikra, Bmidbar, and Devarim), or 2480. And Bmidbar (the Book of Numbers) also has the numerical value of 248.
It’s all obviously hinting at the 10 sefirot structure of the treeoflife, of which we know that there are 22 connecting paths, making 32 in total, which brings us to chart # 3, where we utilized the sofit values for the 22 names and made one variation in the spelling of the letter vav, using the treeoflife version without the yud this time. And loandbehold, the total came to 10032, or 10000 (keter) plus 32, as in the 32 Paths of Wisdom.
Moreover, the sum of the square roots of the sofit values for the 22 names is 424.242, which is an even clearer graphic representation of 424, Mashiach ben David and also 42, 42, 42. Now, when we subtract the value of 4242 that we found in chart #1 from 10032, we get 10032 – 4242 = 5790 and 5790 – 12 = 5778. Why 12? There could be lots of reasons, possible to represent the 12 sons of Jacob, since all the Patriarchs were already represented, or it be that when we add the 10 for the yud we didn’t utilize with the sofit calculation, we get 12 + 10 = 22, as in the 22 letters.
So why all this circular, redundant branching, and this reinforcing of a specific structure pattern? Because it’s all a giant multidimensional matrix that constantly draws us in deeper, with each Name connecting to multiple other gateways, all capable of imparting a different set of knowledge or abilities to us. It’s literally like leaping across the neurons of a giant mind. But whose?
Who indeed!
And why?
Because the deeper we get and the more in tune we get to this structure, the closer we get to Gd and more prepared with are for Mashiach Ben David in 5778.
