Naso

The people presented offerings to God: "...and they brought their offering before Hashem, 6 wagons and 12 oxen.1" Then it clarifies that there was "...a wagon for two [2] princes and an ox for each one (1)." The language is somewhat obtuse. Why not simply state that the princes (or leaders of the 12 tribes) gave 12 oxen and 6 wagons? Instead, the number of offerings is followed by mention of a ratio involving two (2) princes and one (1) ox. 

There are numerous opinions regarding the unusual syntax, but none of them explain that these numbers are consistent with the measure for each dimension of the luchot. The first two dimensions of the luchot measured 6 x 12 handbreadths in their divided-side-by-side state. The third dimension measured three handbreadths, but in this third dimension, any two (2) elements (or cubic handbreadths) of the matrix are decidedly different from the other one (1)2

This specific set of numbers in combination with the subsequent ratio, reflects not only the three-dimensional geometry of the luchot, but also the specific ratio involved in permuting the 72 letters in the 3 verses of Parashah BeShalach where the actual letters of God's Name are hidden. We'll provide a three-dimensional model in a moment, to help the reader see the relationship between the wagons, the princes, the oxen, and a much larger reality involving the geometry of the luchot and the letters of the Name.

Meanwhile, if you are new to this blog, please read each of the essential constructs listed in the column to the right before proceeding. These pages reveal some of the basic mathematic connections between the letters of God's Explicit Name and the multidimensional geometric characteristics of the luchot, both in the divided state and combined cubic form, along with the internal geometry that casts a shadow known as a magen david. There is a special connection between the Name, the luchot and the geometry of the magen, and together they form a unique signature. We refer to this geometry and its mathematic common denominator as the Signature of the Architect. The purpose of this blog is to show how all of these things connect, and to reveal where this 'Signature' is hidden, not only in each week’s parashah, but the physics of time and space, quantum mechanics and celestial dynamics to name a few. Once you are familiar with these constructs you can more fully appreciate each post.

The set of numbers describing the wagons (6) the oxen (12) and the subsequent ratio (2 and 1) involving princes and oxen, is a good example of this signature. The luchot were of course three-dimensional and so their volumetric measure is simply the 6 handbreadths of the first dimension times the 12 handbreadths of the second dimension (72 square handbreadths) times the 3 handbreadths of the third dimension (for a total volume of 216 cubic handbreadths). In addition, two (2) cubic handbreadths within any given array of the third dimension, are different from the other one (1) cubic handbreadth, which is sandwiched in between. This is just like the letters of any given triplet. One is the mirror image of the other!

The secret of permuting any given 3 letter group among the 72 triplets, is hidden in this ratio (the number of princes mentioned, to the number of oxen mentioned). The “prince” (being the head of each tribe) is at one end of the spectrum in terms of importance, significance, or status, whereas the "lowly" ox is at the other end of that spectrum. The triplets are permuted in like fashion, with two (2) letters being taken from the head of their respective verses, surrounding the one (1) letter taken from the end of its respective verse as is known. This is the underlying reason for the obtuse sentence structure and the unusual description of the offerings in terms of 6 wagons with 12 oxen and two (2) princes with one (1) ox for each.

Please keep in mind that this description alludes not only to the letters of the Name (the Triad Havaya of 72) and their permutation, but to the measure of the cosmic blueprint (luchot) that these letters define.

2 "Princes" and 1 "Ox"

The sequence of letters and/or their linguistic structure, as well as the characteristics of events and other things pertaining to Israel, as described in Torah, are very often a mathematic and/or geometric reflection of the luchot, which are in turn a precise reflection of the numbers, sets of numbers and ratios that characterize the letters of the Name (or its abbreviated subsets) and sometimes, as in this case, a reflection of the actual "permutation" involving the triplets.

To review the connection between the geometry of the luchot and the permuting of the letters, think in terms of each dimension:
  • 1st dimension consists of 6 elements (in the form of linear handbreadths)
  • 2nd dimension consists of 12 elements (side-by-side in square handbreadths)
         (the 72 letters in each verse are permuted to create the third dimension)1
  • This third dimension consists of 3 elements (in the form of 3 cubic handbreadths)
          (two of the three handbreadths are on the outside of the matrix and one is on the inside)
          (two of the three letters are on the outside of any given triplet and one letter is inside)

We also read in Naso that each of the 12 tribes brought offerings over a period of 12 days. The first was a silver bowl weighing 130 silver shekels. The second was a silver basin weighing 70 shekels, the third was a gold bowl filled with incense weighing 10 [shekels]. 

The ARI tells us that the number 130 is directly related to the 130 years that Adam Rishon was separated from Chava. This pattern ripples through time and space. We see a reflection in Yaacov aveinu’s age at the time he entered Egypt (130) and another in the birth of Moshe 130 years later. The descendant’s of Ya'acov numbered 70 when they came down to egypt, actually 69 plus 1, as the 70th was born the moment they crossed the border. The child born was Yocheved, who would later become Moshe’s mother. Moshe, in turn, would be born exactly 130 years later. The number 130 also alludes to Mashiach, and just happens to be the number of "points of intersection" between each "linear handbreadth" on the two visible sides of the foundation stone (the measured geometry of the luchot). See the post on "The Name in the Stone" and its sequel entitled "The Supernal Stream" for details on this aspect of the signature geometry. 

It's easy to see that the numbers 130 (and 70) both have a unique place in the cosmic scheme of things. However, the same is true when certain sequences of numbers in this parashah are compared mathematically to the number of letters in God's Name. For example:

1) There were 12 tribes and the offerings were provided over a period of 12 days. The first item was the bowls valued at 130 silver shekels. The simple product of the numbers in this linguistic sequence, that is the number of days, times the number of tribes, times the value of the trays (12 x 12 x 130) is 18,720, which is the 260th multiple of the number of triplets in the Explicit Name (72 x 260 = 18,720) where 26 is the gematria for it's primary subset called the Tetragrammaton. 

2) The simple product of the numbers corresponding to the silver basins (12 x 12 x 70) is 10,080, which is the 140th multiple of the number of triplets (72 x 140 = 10,080). The  10,080 can be expressed as 10 'thousand' and 8 'tens,' the numbers being a function of the volumetric measure for each of the luchot, where 108 is a reflection of the measure for each half of the combined cubic form of the luchot (108 cubic handbreadths) and where 108 is also the gematria of the word "half" ("chatzei" in Hebrew).

3) The simple product of the numbers corresponding to the gold bowls (12 x 12 x 10) is 1440, which is yet another multiple, the 20th (72 x 20 = 1440). 

So the first part of Naso alludes to the 3 groups of 72 letters and the method of permutation (in the number of wagons, oxen and princes) and then later in the same parashah, we find the above mathematic reflections where 3 specific sequential sets of numbers pertaining to the offerings, are all context-related multiples of 72

The root integers of the 'products' and the 'multiples' mentioned in the previous paragraph therefore all have great significance. Aside from the number 26 being the gematria of the Tetragrammaton as mentioned; and the 10,080 being a function of the volumetric measure for each of the luchot as mentioned (108) cubic handbreadths; there are 14 elements in a tetrahedron (an internal mathematic construct within the combined cubic form of the luchot). The specific multiple of 144 (tens) alludes to the number of tetrahedrons in 2 cubes (14 elements in 4 tetrahedrons) where each of the 14 elements of the 4 tetrahedrons are internally distributed between the 2 cubes (the 'two cubes' being the shnei luchot that were brought down twice) like the measure of the Altar of Incense (essentially two cubic-cubits). 

Other mathematic factors (like the 72 x 20 that equals 1440) are even more specific, as each of the cubes has 2 opposing tetrahedrons within, which together have 72 triangular corners (216) for a total of 144 such corners (432). The 1440 is the geometry for the reign of all 10 pre-flood 'kings' from Adam to Noah3. Add the 216 years in which God reigned alone, and the total is equal to the 1656 years (masoretic text) that elapsed between the creation of Adam and the mabul/flood (1440 + 216 = 1,656). See the post on Bereishit for details.

In other words, the actual geometry of the primordial torah is intricately connected to the letters and the narrative of the Torah of Moshe. This is the best explanation for why each product or multiple of any pertinent sequence of numbers, is a mathematic shadow of a larger reality defined by the cube [of creation] that is in turn 'measured' by the 216 letters.

All of this considered, a few other numbers are worth noting:

  1. The simple mathematic product of the numbers corresponding to the number of oxen, rams, sheep and goats that were burnt offerings (12 x 12 x 12 x 12 = 20,736) is a multiple of the total number of letters in the Name (specifically the 96th multiple: 216 x 96 = 20,736). 
  2. The simple mathematic product of the numbers involved in the peace offerings of bulls, rams, sheep and goats (24 x 60 x 60 x 60 = 5,184,000) is also a multiple of the total number of letters in the Name, specifically the 24,000th multiple (216 x 24,000 = 5,184,000). At the same time, it is bright a reflection of the geometry of the kodesh kodeshim (holy of holies) with its 8 golden beams on three sides (a total of 24 beams) giving rise to its measure of 3 x 72 handbreadths outside, and its 60 x 60 x 60 handbreadths inside. Needless to say, the 'measure' arises from the geometry of the primordial torah (luchot) that in combined cubic form measured 6 x 6 x 6 handbreadths, and the tetrahedral geometry hidden that consists of the 12 small faces on each of the 2 subdivided tetrahedrons (a total of 24 small faces within the confines of its outer geometry measuring 6 x 6 x 6). This in turn gives rise to the 72 triangular corners on the surfaces of the star tetrahedron (an intrinsic mathematic aspect in the combined cubic form of the luchot).
In each case, the numbers reflect the nature of a larger reality revolving around God's Name. The two 'instances' above, involving multiples of 216, are a reflection of the shnei luchot that were brought down twice (2 x 216 cubic handbreadths).

Any one of these examples could easily be a mathematic coincidence, maybe even two. However, the repeated occurrence of a precise pattern like this is indicative of design, and in this case the mathematic initials of the designer, e.g. the "royal signature"  having a total of 216 letters that are combined and permuted in the form of 72 times 3 letter/groups corresponding to the measure of the luchot that were brought down twice (432 cubic handbreadths).

If these patterns were found only in the text of the Torah, one might erroneously contend that it was concocted by human authors (albeit with significant knowledge of mathematics) rather than being of divine origin. However, we see the same patterns throughout the entire universe as explained in the essential constructs on Hashem Hameforash (the Explicit Name); "The Nature of Sapphire" which was/is the substance of the shnei luchot (tablets) and especially the post on The Primordial Torah. The pattern is also found in the Carbon-12 mystery (of life) in biology, the measurement of the earth's surface (both mentioned in the post on Metzora) the celestial dynamics mentioned in BeHa'alothekha and the physics of time and space discussed in the post on "The Eight Dimensions," to name a few. It is in fact, the Signature of the Architect that we spoke of in the first few paragraphs.

Are all of these things really connected to the "letters" of the Name? We say, "This is the Torah that Moshe placed before the children of Israel upon the command [literally 'from the mouth of'] the Name, through Moshe's hand." In Hebrew:

וזאת התורה אשר שם משה לפני בני ישראל על פי יהוה ביד משה 

The phrase על פי יהוה means: "...from the mouth of HaShem (the Name)." The letters of this phrase just happen to have a gematria of 216, which is the number of letters in that Name. 

What was from the mouth of God? The Torah was from the mouth of God. Where was the Torah given? It was given at Mt. Chorev (Horeb in English). In Hebrew, Chorev is spelled chet, vav, resh, vet (חורב) and it too has a gematria of 216. Coincidence? In Torah script, the chet (ח) is written as though it were in the physical form of twin letter zayins (זז) alluding to the sapphire cube [of creation] that was divided into two halves, becoming the luchot or sapphire 'twins' that were ultimately brought down (twice) at this location. When the numeric value of 'Chorev/Horeb' is calculated using twin zayins, instead of the chet, its gematria is still 2163 like the volumetric measure of the "twins" themselves (the shnei luchot) that were 2 (tablets) x 108 (cubic handbreadths) but still equal to 216 cubic handbreadths, or the 'volume' of the original cube [of creation] before division.

When someone learns about God's One Unique Explicit Name and comes to understand how precisely He has 'engineered' the cosmos (and everything else) it often has an unusual effect on their consciousness. Just keep in mind that it is the Jewish people who have preserved this knowledge. They are the only people who know its secrets; how it pertains to creation, the manner in which its letters are permuted; and when, and under what circumstances they are permissible to pronounce. 

Next week's post will focus on the celestial dynamics of the Earth and the Moon as they relate to one another, and as a mathematic and geometric function of the letters in God's Name, as well as where this relationship is hidden in the text.

Bamidbar

The royal seal was used whenever the king issued a decree or proclamation... [and] reference to the king’s [name] was stamped on the laws as well.”

The above quote was from the story we told in the post on Emor. You may recall from the story, that the royal seal contained the symbols representing the mathematic and geometric characteristics of the King’s Name. The King in the story was of course God.

In the last post on BeHar and BeChuko-thai we showed the relationship between the 360 degrees of a circle and various biblical systems of measurement (which in many cases are the basis for their modern counterparts) and explained how the circle is really a mathematic shadow of a three-dimensional sphere within any cube, although its significance is specifically relative to the combined cubic form of the luchot established by the 216 letters. The posts on Metzora and BeHa'alothekha showed how deeply the royal seal of the King’s Name (in the form of its mathematic characteristics) was embedded in these circular or spherical systems.


If you are new to this blog, then you should read each of the essential constructs listed in the column to the right before proceeding. They explain some of the basic connections between the letters of God's Explicit Name and the multidimensional mathematic and geometric characteristics of the luchot, both in the divided state and combined cubic form, along with the internal geometry that casts a shadow known as a magen david. There is a special connection between the Name, the luchot and the geometry of the magen. The purpose of this blog is to show how they connect with one another and to reveal where the Signature of the Architect is hidden, not only in each week’s parashah, but the physics of time and space, quantum mechanics and celestial dynamics to name a few. Once you are familiar with these constructs you can more fully appreciate each post.

Before looking at this week’s parashah, it is worth taking another look at the ephah. The ephah is a dry unit of measure. It occupies space and thus has volume. This is why it can be equated to lugim (logs) which is a liquid unit of measure. Both occupy space and have volume. A barrel of wine takes up the same amount of space as a barrel of wheat, although we measure them using different units of measure. An ephah equates to 72 lugim, which is the same as the number of triplets in the Triad Havaya of 72. A log is 6 eggs, so 72 lugim equates to 432 eggs (2 x 216) which is the square root of the absolute speed of light, and where 216 equates to the total number of letters in the Name. The letters of the Name in turn define the luchot or cosmic blueprint, with a volumetric measure of 216 cubic handbreadths. The luchot were brought down twice (2 x 216 cubic handbreadths = 432 cubic handbreadths). It's very easy to see that the numbers, sets of numbers and ratios are identical between the systems of measurement, the properties of the luchot and the letters of the Name. 


If you take a series of random numbers and multiply them all together and then divide the result by another random 3 digit number, the odds are, you’ll get a crazy number like 148.294717402 (with a sizable fractional remainder). It is unlikely you will get an integer, let alone an integer that has any real significance. It's even more unlikely you'll get one of the numbers, or sets of numbers associated with the geometry of the primordial torah (luchot).

Now consider the amount of meal that was actually required for the morning and afternoon tamid offering. One tenth (.1) ephah was required for the morning tamid, and one tenth (.1) for the afternoon tamid. One tenth (.1) of an ephah would have the same volume as 7,776 minims (1/60th of a fluid dram). Is this measure, which is the amount required each and every day for the morning and afternoon tamid, also a function of God’s Name? If you divide this number by the number of letters in God’s Name (216) you'll get 72 (2 x 7,776 = 15,512 divided by 216 = 72). In other words, the two primary factors in the equation (216 and 72) are the number of letters and the number of triplets in that Name (3 x 72 = 216). The numbers themselves, or set of numbers (for those looking at this "equation" through the lens of set theory) and especially the ratio between the numbers, all conform to the geometry of the royal seal that is here stamped on both the unit of measure, and the amount that is required for its use in the daily tamid. God’s Name is clearly a mathematic and geometric function of both.

This is also true for the ‘hin.’ We’ve already showed in previous posts how the royal seal was embedded in the amount of oil required for the morning and afternoon tamid. The morning tamid required 1/4 hin of oil and the afternoon tamid required 1/4 hin. A hin is 432 drams2, a quarter hin is 108 drams, so the morning and afternoon tamid together required 216 drams. This not only equates to the number of cubic handbreadths in each of the 2 luchot (2 x 108 = 216) but together they reflect the nature of the offerings with respect to the male and female nature of the universe, where the daily total (216) is equal to the total number of cubic handbreadths in both luchot and also the number of letters in the Triad Name.

If all of the above numbers were programmed into a computer, the computer would have to stand up and dance. The symmetry of the equation; the interconnected nature of the measurements, as well as the amounts required for the offerings; and their origin in the properties of the luchot defined by the letters of the Creator's Name, are beautiful. The point is that, so far, we see all of these things connected in a significant and meaningful way, demonstrating once again, that the mathematic and geometric characteristics of God’s Explicit Name are a central part of the design, for everything in the kingdom.

This brings us to BeMidbar where we find requirements for the transport of the tabernacle and other holy things. For the purpose of this post, Eleazar's responsibility for transporting the following will be examined: 1) the illuminating oil for the menorah; 2) the incense; 3) the anointing oil or shemen hamishchah; and 4) the meal for the offerings (just mentioned above). Let's see if the dynamics of the royal seal (tetrahedral geometry with is 72 triangular corners) can be found in the amounts necessary to fulfill these requirements.

We’ll start with the illuminating oil. Our sources tell us that Eleazar was required to transport 1278 lugim of this oil. With 12 lugim to a hin, and 432 drams to a hin, this amounts to 46,008 drams (1278 lugim /12 hin x 432 drams = 46,008 drams). It can also be expressed in minimal form as minims or drops (1/60 of a fluid dram) in which case it is 2,760,480 (minims). Do we find the royal seal of the King on these requirements? Yes. In fact, both numbers (expressed as drams and minims) reflect the Signature of the Architect. Both are ‘multiples’ of the number of letters in the King’s Name.

Let's progress to the next item that Eleazar was required to transport, which is the incense. According to our sources, he would transport a years portion, which today would be 365 (days) x 150 drams per day1, or 54,750 drams. Does this amount have the royal seal stamped on it? No. It does not. If we divide the number of drams by the number of letters in the Name, we get 253.472222. If we divide it by 72 we get 760.416667. If we divide it by 108 we get 506.944444. The amount Eleazar was required to transport does not seem to have any relationship whatsoever to the King’s Name. What’s wrong?

As it turns out, all of the sources that describe this requirement (pertaining to 365 days) were redacted long after the time of king Hezekiah. Today the earth orbits the sun every 365 days, so we think of the requirement in terms of 365 portions. However, it is fairly common knowledge among researchers, that before the time of king Hezekiah, the earth orbited the sun every 360 days.

The details are rather interesting, however they reduce to the fact that at one time, the calendar of every ancient civilizations consisted of 360 days. Sometime around the Hebrew year 3060 (700 b.c.e.) a planetary catastrophe occurred. The catastrophe, whatever it was, resulted in a new orbit of 365 1/4 days a year (approximately). This in turn necessitated the adjustment of each calendar, maintained by each civilization existing at the time. There is an overwhelming amount of evidence to support this, falling into such categories as geological, geographic, also astronomical data and computations involving celestial mechanics, and of course, a wealth of actual historical records as well. We will not delve into the matter here, as it is too extensive. However, anyone wishing to pursue the matter need only do an internet search using the words “360 day year.” Be forewarned, the result will provide you with roughly 870 million pages dealing with the subject matter. If this information is correct, then prior to the time of Hezekiah (note that the exodus from Egypt and the period immediately following the exodus is long before Hezekiah) the solar orbit and the length of a year was 360 days.

If indeed a year consisted of 360 days, then Eleazar would have been required to transport 360 portions (at that time) of 150 drams (the daily amount). When you multiply them together to calculate the amount that Eleazar was required to transport, the amount is equal to 54,000 drams of incense, which is a perfect multiple of the number of letters in God’s Name (216) in fact a very round number, specifically 250. The 54 (thousand) is also a mathematic function of each quadrant within "The Eight Dimensions" of the luchot explained in the post by that name.

That brings us to the shemen (oil) used for anointing. In this case, there was only one amount that needed to be carried. The reason is that only a small amount of it was ever made, and it never diminished, even after use.
Rabbi Yehuda said: “12 lugim were made... and 12 lugim always remained” because even after a portion was used, a miracle occurred and the amount never diminished. The relationship between the 12 at the start and the 12 at the end, is like the 12 letter (abbreviated form of the) Explicit Name and it's counterparts explained in the post on Ki Thavo, and part of the same dynamic seen in the measure of time with 12 hours opposite 12 hours, described more fully in the post on "The 216 Letters in Noah's Ark." The reflection was eventually distorted as explained in the post on BeHa'alothekha, but the original dynamic can still be seen in the average, which still coincides with the infinite nature of the Creator (Who can in no way be diminished) and whose Name takes the form of a 12-letter abbreviation with a 12-letter counterpart, that are both derived from 216 letters. And so there were 12 lugim of this oil, or 432 drams to be exact, and this of course is not only a function of the number of letters in the Name (2 x 216 = 432) but also a function of the volumetric measure of both sets of luchot (brought down twice). If we convert this to minims or drops (432 x 60 = 25,920) the result is also highly significant. It is the number of years in the procession of the equinoxes. Coincidence? Not hardly!

Each of the above examples demonstrate that the royal seal, bearing the Signature of the King, can be found embedded beneath the surface of many things that we see in the Torah and the history of Israel. “The royal seal was used whenever the king issued a decree or proclamation... [and] reference to the king’s [name] was stamped on the laws as well.”

If you’ve not yet read the post on Emor, wherein the story with above quote is explained, please do. If you'd like to see how the above "multiples" (of the letters in God's Name) manifest themselves in "the future," see the post on Parashah Korach where these seemingly random numbers are the basis of, and can be seen creating (
in perfect context) the characteristics of the events involving the rebellion of Korach.
