The four letters of the Tetragrammaton (yud-key-vav-key / YHWH) are often referred to as the Explicit Name because they are the primordial form of the 216, and together with their four-letter counterparts in ADNY (aleph-dalet-nun-yud) and Ehyeh (aleph-hey-yud-heh) they define a complex mathematic system that becomes the very heart of the universe. The sophisticated geometric relationship between all of these letters and how this Name rules the universe (by defining various aspects of physics, biology, chemistry and celestial dynamics) is the subject of this blog.
Here are just a few simple examples that reveal the larger reality that is associated with the Triad Havaya of 72:
- The average amount of water1 in the human body 72%.
- There are an average of 72 heart beats per minute for the human adult.
- The axis of the earth moves 1 degree every 72 years in relation to the rolling vault of heaven.
- The average life duration of the ovule is 72 hours.
- There are 72 paranatellons that rise and set simultaneously with the 12 constellations.
- 72 is the number of hours in 3 days
The "Signature" (essentially a mathematic reflection of the letters in God's Name) is hidden just beneath the surface of our reality so that it does not interfere with free will. However, those who look for it will find it in one form or another, just about everywhere.
The next construct is about: The Sapphire Cube (the combined cubic form of the luchot / primordial torah) that is "defined" by the letters of this Name.
Footnote 1 - The range for the amount of water in the human body is 50-75%. However, when this range is averaged factoring in each age group accordingly, the average is 72%.
More advanced students who are already familiar with God's Name and its abbreviated forms should note: the actual (216) letters of the Name are not the subject of this blog. For our purpose, all that is necessary is for the reader to be aware of their mathematic and geometric characteristics. Also, the Triad Name of 72 should not be confused with the miliu-ey of Yud-Key-Vav-Key known as the Havayah of Ayin-Bet which is an expansion of the Tetragrammaton that is numerically equal to 72. Nor should it be confused with the Tetragrammaton (Yud-Key-Vav-Key ~ YHVH) which is referred to as "Explicit" because it is the root of the 216 letters, and also the form or expression of the Name that describes the state of these letters at the moment "duality" was established in the creation of the universe (the 4 letters: yud-key with vav-key) and before its present multiplicity (expressed in all 216). The term/word "havayah' refers to this 'essential' four-letter form. However, since the other four-letter forms like Adnoot (aleph-dalet-nun-yud) and Ehyeh (aleph-hey-yud-hey) have a direct connection to this abbreviation, as explained in the post on the "Marriage of the Letters," we sometimes refer to all three as 'essential' (havayah) 'Names' regardless. In addition to the 216 letters of the Triad Havayah of 72 (3 x 72 = 216) there are a total of 54 ways the letters of the Name YHVH can be combined and permuted, and all of them mathematically yield a total of 216 letters (4 letters x 54 permutations = 216). These 54 permutations are said to be the mystery of power to all that exists within the created universe (YHVH = 12; YYVH = 12; YVVH = 12; YYVV = 6; YYHH = 6; VVHH = 6; Total = 4 x 54 = 216). You will see examples of this mystery manifesting itself when you've read the post on the primordial torah. These 4 letters are said to be like a soul to the 216 (Shaarey Orah 1, p. 4b, See also: Bahir 110, Zohar 2:270. cf.
