Genesis: a la Sherlock Holmes. First, the mystery. In Genesis itself, we have references to a previous world. God was called by the name “Emesh”. אֶמֶשׁ .The references in the Torah are noted by Aryeh Kaplan. He was a physicist who became a mystical and Biblical scholar. His text that I use for my source is his book entitled, Sefer Yitsirah. The pre-Genesis world is alluded to and described as follows.
- Genesis 1:2 It was unformed and void.
- Genesis 31:29 “The God of your father, Emesh, said to me.” This was alluded to by Laban.
- Genesis 31:43 “And Emesh gave judgement.” This is alluded to by Jacob.
Keeping Sherlock Holmes on the Trail
In these blogs, I state a premise. This premise is affirmed by leading authors and archaeologists. The numerical essence of a deity (gematria) is found as the civilization’s key measure. A ruler also ruled by setting the standards of measure. Invaders obliterate the old standards of measure when they conquered a country. That can make clues even more difficult to find. The ancient foundations at Teotihuacan were also conceived by the “hunab” of 3.41 feet. The ancient deity referred to is Genesis, Emesh, אֶמֶשׁ, by using the rules of gematria, equals 341. Aleph = 1; mem=40; and shin = 300. Thus, 1 + 40 + 300= 341. The 3.41 foot “hunab” is the official standard of measure of various cultures in central America. Peter Tompkins, in his Mysteries of the Mexican Pyramids, refers to the hunab’s discoverer: Hugh Harleston. Although Teotihuacan was developed in the 1st century AD, it was built on older ruins. Some schools of thought believe its foundation may even be even predate 4,000 B.C.
What Conclusion Might Sherlock Holmes Draw?
The conclusion is “elementary, my dear Watson”. There was “chaos” before the Creation in Genesis. Mystics explain that this happened because the vessels on the Tree of Life did not interact. In keeping to themselves, the vessels could not endure the pressure that resulted. There needs to be a free flow from one vessel to the next. As a consequence they broke. Their shards became the root of all evil. As the vessels on the Tree of Life need to interact, so do people. That’s why greatest teaching of all our true religious leaders is to practice love. If man becomes the vessel par excellence of love, then nothing will be shattered. We then can all enjoy a new era of peace and plenty.
