In Parashah VaYetze, there are mathematic allusions to God's Explicit Name in numerous places. Consider the phrase: “...complete the week with one and we will give you the other."
To understand how this correlates with God's Name, flashback to last week's parashah (Toldot) where the signature geometry was embedded in the language of the phrase: "...when it came time for her to give birth, twins were in her womb."
The subject of that parashah dealt with the pregnancy of Rivka and the
twins, Yaacov and Esav. However, these "twins" were in her womb
throughout the entire gestation period, not merely "when
it came time for her to give birth,” alluding to the Shechina (Holy
Feminine) and the luchot, or more specifically the twins that
intrinsically reflect the unique Signature of the Architect.
week, in VaYetze, we see the instant replay with the same Signature,
only this time the twins are Leah and Rachail. Yaacov is told: “complete
the week with one and we will give you the other.” God says to Yaacov
(Israel) complete the week (observe the Shabbat ) and we will give you
the other (luchot) that are each 6 x 6 x 3 (108) times 2. Just as Israel would later receive 'twins' (the shnei luchot) Yaacov here receives twins. Each event is a reflection of a larger reality where the signature geometry repeats itself as time moves forward in the physical universe.
We will provide additional details in a moment, however those who are new to this
blog should 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 the signature geometry is
hidden, not only in each week’s parashah, but also such things as quantum mechanics, the physics of time and
space, celestial dynamics, biology, chemistry (etc). Once you
are familiar with these constructs you can more fully appreciate each
Parashah VaYetze, there are additional allusions to the Explicit Name
as well. Yehuda, for example, is born to Yaacov and his birth has
special significance. Not only was he the father of the tribe of Judah,
but his descendants would bear the royal line of kingship ("the sceptre
shall not depart from Yehuda") that was passed down from the pre-flood
kings as explained in the post on Bereishit and Noach.
Yehuda is the father of the lasting jews and it would be from his
descendants that Messiah would come. The term ‘Jew’ means “comes from
the tribe of Judah.” Of all the tribes, this is the one that lasted
throughout the ages and has returned to fulfill its role in the cosmic
scheme of things as we approach 6,000 years of human history. This is
not the place to go into why this has happened. It is sufficient to
point out that Yehuda has been and will always be the father of the
should therefore come as no surprise that his name and the
circumstances surrounding his birth have great significance with regard
to God’s Name(s). He was the 4th child of Yaacov, and father of the 4th
tribe. Events or circumstances in the Torah that are characterized by
the number 4 are almost invariably associated with more than one
instance of the number 4, because each is a reflection of the Explicit
Name and the nature of its abbreviated forms in the 4 letters of the Tetragrammaton; the 4 letters of its polar opposite in Adnoot, and their combination (marriage) that result in the 4 letters of Ehyeh.
This is the same “reflection” that was seen in the post on Parashah Ki Thetze, where the 4 strands of tzitzith were doubled over and become 4 opposite 4, on 4 corners of the garment.
This reflection was seen again last week, in Parashah Toldot: 4 wells were dug by Avraham; the 4 wells were then filled in by the Philistines; but then the 4 wells return to their earlier state when they are re-dug by Yitzchak.
significance of these reflections is very lofty and requires
contemplation. If you want to know God’s Name then take time (make the
time) to comprehend this. If you want more information pertaining to
this aspect of God’s Explicit Name and its abbreviated forms, then
re-read the posts on Maasey & Devarim and Ki Thetze and specifically the Marriage of the Letters.
in this parashah, we see this same reflection again. Only this time, it
is found in the name and the circumstances surrounding Yehuda who is
the fourth son and father of the fourth tribe. Yehuda's name is
also comprised of the four letters that spell the Tetragrammaton
In addition to the letters of the Tetragrammaton, it also
has another letter, specifically a Daled (ד) which has a gematria of four. It's the fourth letter of Yehudah’s name as Yehuda is the fourth
son. Coincidence? Not hardly—same reflection—a mathematic reflection
arising from a basic mathematic imperative of the primordial torah (luchot) and its signature geometry!
the cosmic scheme of things, the division of the letters in God’s Name
(into their respective male and female counterparts) create and sustain a
physical universe in male/female form. We see this “division” or
polarization of (male-female) letters in both: 1) the Explicit Name with
216 letters, where the division is seen when the luchot are brought down and where each half has a volumetric measure of 108 cubic handbreadths, and where the word “half” (chetzei) has a gematria of 108; and 2) in the 4 letters of Ehyeh that 'divide' (male opposite female) into the 4 letters of the Tetragrammaton opposite the 4
letters of Adnoot that are similarly
divided/polarized into their respective male and female counterparts
(recombined within human consciousness during the four bows).
The blueprint mathematically reflects this imperative because it is
necessary for maintaining space-time in a physical universe having
male-female attributes (duality) and this is also why we see its
reflection in the
world below as the history of mankind unfolds.
With the division of the 216 letters of the Explicit Name into 108 opposite 108 (as seen in the luchot) and the division of the 4 (letters in Ehyeh) into the 4 opposite 4
of the Tetragrammaton and Adnoot, the underlying basis
for a physical universe in male-female form is put in place, and so
creation progresses accordingly, in male-female form. This can be seen
in the male-female aspects of the luchot, where the combined cubic form
consists of 5 internal mathematic constructs and 5
polar opposites (the duality of the 5). This is not only found in the ”physical nature” of the
cosmic blueprint, but also the physical nature of the
created universe, as found in the 5 string theories reconciled by dual resonance).
Where do we see this reflection in this week’s parsahah? When
the Daled is added to the Tetragrammaton to “create” the name of
Yehuda, it moves the last letter of the Tetragrammaton, the letter Hey
(ה) to the fifth position, where it becomes the 5th letter of his name. The letter Hey
(ה) has a gematria of 5.
The nature of the blueprint (in the combined cubic form of the luchot)
with its 5 internal mathematic constructs and their 5 opposites is
essentially the mathematic by-product of the separation of the letters
into their 4 male and 4 female counterparts. So we see in this parashah,
not one, but two reflected forms of the Explicit Name and the luchot it defines in terms of 4 opposite 4 and
5 opposite 5.
this means of course, is that Yehuda’s name (substance/essence) is very
special. His name is literally the Tetragrammaton (one of the
abbreviations) with the addition of the daled. So the shadow of the
Creator’s Name of 216 letters is seen in the 4
letters of the abbreviation manifested in the physical person of Yehuda
whose name consists of those letters, along with the 5th letter that
alludes to the mathematic nature of the blueprint; the halacha that his
descendants would observe; and the nature of the physical universe in
which this observance would take place. Each is simply a time-dependent
reflection of the creation equation.
The letter daled (with a gematria of 4) is equally revealing in that it is in the 4th position of this name, manifested in the 4th son. This is a direct reflection again, of: 1) the 4 letters in the Tetragrammaton; 2) the 4 letters of Adnoot and; 3) their “recombinant form” in the 4
letters of Ehyeh. This is why the
last of these Names (the unified form: Ehyeh) is seen in verse 31:3
where God tells Yaacov to “...return to the Land
of your fathers, … and I (Ehyeh) will be with you” (the return being in essence a unification of the Name). The reason the
Jewish people are “married” to the land (and must return) is that our
very existence is wrapped up in the unification of the letters in God’s Name (last week’s post explains
why this Name is used in reference to the land). That’s why returning to
the land is necessary to sanctify the Name. The 4 letters of the abbreviation(s) as they pertain to the land are then manifested in verse 28:14 where the 4 cardinal directions: north-south-east-west are then mentioned, their physical existence being “measured” by, and dependent upon this Name.
The three (four-letter abbreviations) of the Name are a reflection of the triad nature of the One Unique fully expanded Explicit Name that consists of 72
triplets. There are many reflections of these “triplets” in this week’s
parashah. Each is a reflection of the Name. There are, for example:
3 flocks of sheep waiting to be watered when Yaacov comes to the well in Charan.
3 days pass before Lavan is told Yaacov has fled.
(After having separated the sheep that would be Yaacov’s wages: 30:36
3 days distance is put between Lavan and Yaacov and thus 3 days pass
before Lavan is told that Yaacov has fled).
3 types of fresh rods are used by Yaacov (poplar, hazel, chestnut)
(he then peels them to create the “hypnotic sheep mating sticks”)
3 types of sheep result from using three types of rods: ringed, speckled, and checkered.
Notice that there are four instances of 3.
The events that give rise to these numbers are dictated by the internal
geometry of the luchot, as mentioned in the essential construct on the primordial torah. In this case it is an aspect of the tetrahedron
within the cube (which is one of its five internal mathematic constructs) that has four triangular faces with a total of 720 degrees. Each alludes to the nature of the Name with 3 x 72 or 216 letters abbreviated as four (opposite four).
The 4 letters in Yehuda’s name that are those of the Tetragrammaton, plus the 5th letter (the daled) have a gematria of 30 (or 3 “tens”). The 4 instances above are another reflection of the abbreviations and the “3” alludes to the triad
nature of the Name. The reason for the multiple of 10, is that Yehuda’s
descendants (until today) have always kept (collectively) the 10 Commandments
inscribed on the luchot, whose volumetric measure corresponds to the
total number of letters in the Triad Havaya of 72 (216).
Other tribes of Israel did not keep the commandments and were ultimately
lost, and so as we mentioned above, the surviving Jews are (mostly) from
the tribe of Judah/Yehuda.
Additional reflections of this geometry are found in the circumstances involving Yaacov’s journey
to Charan when he stops in Luz. He has a dream in which God appears, so
when he awakes, he calls the place Beth El. Luz (the original name) has a
gematria of 43.
The integer sequence in the gematria (that should now sound vaguely
familiar) consists of the numbers that happen to characterize the above
events/circumstances. Beth El (the new name) however, has a gematria of 443 (a star tetrahedron which is the geometry of unification has four faces on one half, and four faces on the other half, each with 3 corners. The
cosmic blueprint (primordial torah) ultimately specifies reality in the
world below. In this case, the names reflect the larger reality. The
change in the name of this place, as seen in the sequence of numbers in their gematria, is the same with the exception of the additional 4 following the first 4. Yaacov says in 28:17 “Surely God is present in this place!” He then changes the name from Luz (43) to Beth El (443) alluding both to the two primary abbreviations in the 4 letters of the Tetragrammaton and the 4 letters of Adnoot, and the nature of their position in the Triad
Name that define His presence in this place (a total of 72 small faces with 3 corners on the 4 faces of one opposite the 4
faces of the other). In other words, the Name and its abbreviations
define the geometry of the blueprint (luchot) which in turn defines the
world below, or the nature of creation as it progresses over
time, toward unification, and its ultimate perfection. Names are
reflect the essence of what is named; what has happened; or what will
happen in the future. That’s why our tzadikkim recommend changing the
name of someone who is sick, to restore their health. It's not the new
name that is important, so much as how accurately the new name
reflects the letters of the Creator's Name.
In order to explain
it a little differently, the letters have
their counterpart in the numbers and sets of numbers in the mathematic
structure of the star tetrahedron (three-dimensional magen david) which
is a geometric reflection of the letters in God’s Explicit Name. This
reflection (which is again 1 of 5 internal constructs within the
cubic form of the luchot) defines the geometry of a star tetrahedron
that happens to consist of a tetrahedron with 4 faces/points opposite another tetrahedron with 4 faces/points, each face having 3
corners. The internal geometry of the luchot (blueprint) defines reality in the
world below, although we seem to decide (by our actions) how it is to be
manifested. In this case, Yaacov sanctified God’s Name (proclaiming
God’s Presence) in this place (Luz) by changing its name to Beth El. Of
course, as you might suspect, the Presence of God’s Name is found in
many additional places. We’ve examined the 3s and the 4s. The 7s are also somewhat revealing.
The 7s (as we’ve explained many times throughout
the blog) generally correlate to our observance of calendar related
halachah. However, they are an inherent aspect of the blueprint (luchot)
as well. Sometimes they are seen as 7 opposite 7, in which case they are a one-dimensional reflection of the magen david in the form of its 7 elements opposite 7 elements (as explained in the post on Emor which is a prerequisite to understanding this particular reflection of God’s Name). In other cases they appear as three 7s,
in which case they are a one-dimensional metric expression that corresponds to
(the cubic nature) in the cycles of 7 that mark the passage of time, a
construct that hides three 6s corresponding to the combined cubic form
of the luchot and the letters of the Explicit Name as detailed in posts like BeHar and Bechuko-thai.
In this parashah, we see this aspect of the blueprint/luchot manifested in: 1) the 7 years that Yaacov worked for Rachel but then by deception marries Leah instead; 2) the 7 days of wedding celebrations after the wedding and then; 3) Yaacov agrees to work another 7 years for Rachel. These three 7s define the cycles of “time” in a physical universe with three observable spacial
dimensions, invariably expressed in terms of sevens like 7 days (week) 7 x 7 days
(omer) 7 years (shmitah) 7 x 7 years (jubilee). All are reflections of cycles
pertaining to halachah, defined by the geometry of the luchot. This observance (that
reflects the nature of time) as previously mentioned, “hides” the 216
elements, which are the spaces/intersections within the matrix that
corresponds to the combined cubic form of the luchot and the 216 letters of the Explicit Name (again, explained more fully in the post on BeHar and Bechuko-thai).
In this case, there were not only 7 (years) for Leah and 7
(years) for Rachel: 7 opposite 7 (years) but also 7 (days) of wedding
celebrations, that then led to the 7 (days) it took for Lavan to catch
up with Yaacov on Mt. Gilead. So we see the 7s as both 7 opposite 7 (as in the royal seal of the magen david) but also three 7s
as in the matrix of time that hides the Signature of the Architect, a
signature that is now complete after the culmination of these events. A triangle coincidentally consists of three points (from among a total of 7 elements) where one point is different from the other two
points (any two of its points exist in one dimension while the third
point is in the second dimension with respect to the first two). The
events (below) mirror the geometry imposed by the primordial blueprint,
and so the sevens take the form of 7 (years) for Leah; 7
(years) for Rachel and 7 (days) of celebration, where one period (or measure) of time, is different from the other two.
This series of events continues
when Lavan eventually catches up to Yaacov. They make a treaty and then
pile stones on top of one another to mark the spot. The terms of the
treaty required each to refrain from crossing the border to harm the
other, and the stones marked the border set by the treaty. Then they
name the place Gilead which is actually two words (“Gal” and “Aid”) that
mean “witness mound,” in reference to the stones. Each person was of
course required to keep his half of the bargain. The gematria of “half” is 108 (as is the gematria for "the stones"
which is what they had piled up as a "witness"). The new name for the
place was Gilead, but it has a gematria of 107, which falls "1
short" of the mark (108 being half). The implication was that 1 party (Lavan) would not
keep his half of the bargain. Yaacov may have suspected as much. In next
week’s parashah, we’ll see how this is rectified.
At any rate,
the treaty required each party to refrain from crossing the border to
cause harm to the other, but soon after, Yaacov encounters Esav coming
against him with 400 men (next week’s parashah). How did Esav know that
Yaacov was coming? It turns out that when Lavan got home, he sent his
son Beor to incite Esav, to kill Yaacov, in violation of the treaty he
had just made (hence the defective gematria).
Beor along with
AviCheref, the son of Utz (who
was the son of Nahor) and 10 men (quite an entourage) run to Seir to do
the will of Lavan. When they reach Esav, they spin a twisted tale
accusing Yaacov of deception. Beor tells Esav that Yaacov "left
suddenly" without telling Lavan, as though Yaacov had committed a crime
(the alleged reason for leaving suddenly).
The truth was that Yaacov knew Lavan would try to prevent his departure
and he had no alternative. However, the truth didn't matter to Beor as
long as the desired result was achieved. And indeed it was, as the
allegation reminded Esav that Yaacov deceived him too, by "stealing" the
birthright (which was never true in the first place since the birthright
had been purchased). Then after further distorting the truth, and
worked up, they inform him of Yaacov’s whereabouts. So Esav gathers an
army and marches against Yaacov. The bottom line is that Lavan, lacking
any respect for God or what God requires of men (alluded to by each
luchot with 108 cubic handbreadths and the commandment against "bearing
false witness" or "murder") failed to keep his "half" of the bargain
alluded to by the gematria of Gilead (107). Gilead, made up of the 2 words
(even in the Aramaic of 31:47) signified the treaty made by 2 parties,
or 2 halves. To rectify the breach in the treaty, God had Lavan die
within 2 years of his violation of the treaty, so we see 107 (Gilead) +
107 (Lavan's unkept half of the treaty) 'create' the requirement limiting his life to 2 more years: 107 + 107 + 2 = 216.
The events once again are specified in the geometry of the luchot and
the letters of creation, that are once again, themselves derived from
the letters of the Name
summary, we’ve seen numerous instances in this parashah where a
knowledge of God’s Explicit Name is a prerequisite for both protection
and blessing. The signature geometry here takes one of 3 primary mathematic and/or
geometric forms: 4 opposite 4 (that are 4); 5 opposite 5, and 3 x 72.
These reflections of the Name go hand-in-hand with understanding the
nature of the luchot and what God requires of man. When Israel honors
God’s Name and observes halacha, "he" is blessed and protected. When "he"
does not, the blessings and protections take a different form, a form
involving painful realizations that inevitably lead Israel back to its
original path, ultimately destined to "return" (4 times) to the Land; a
path involving tikkun (rectification) of human consciousness; and a path
that invariably reflects every aspect of the letters in God's Name.
