Five hundred fortieth post is all About Man. Here’s the story as an excerpt from my The Staff of God Vol II. A number of Middle Eastern languages have the same symbol for numbers and letters. In this manner a numerical value can be equated with a particular number. This is called by the ancient Greek word, gematria.
Five hundred Fortieth Post Numerically Parallels the 5 Sided Pentagon
The gematria of the first man, Adam is 45.
This number has kinship with the 3 x 3 number square.
The sum of the numbers that comprise the square,
Being the sum 1 thru 9, totals 45.
The word for Adam is actually set up like the square.
Aleph = 1; dalet = 4; and mem = 40.
Aleph + dalet total the central 5.
Mem equals the sum of the perimeter of 40.
The square of three is like a lump of clay,
From which right and left limbs can be molded.
Using polarities up and down by hundreds
Example, 951 + 159, total 1110.
(That is the sum of 555 + 555)
Multiple balanced polarities can take the shape
As with the 951 axis of the head and torso:
438 + 672 can be viewed as the left and right arms.
The reverse 834 + 276 can be the left and right legs.
(all sums equal 1110.)
Five hundred fortieth post
The 3 x 3 number square utilizes opposite polarities by number. Man’s polarities are left and right: Arms and legs swing back and forth while walking. Power in martial art utilizes strength through polarity: One arm thrusts forward while the other goes backward in a set manner.
Here is an internal. The 1st sentence of Genesis uses three polarities. One is obvious and two are hidden:
- By single numbers the perimeter is 40.
- Double and overlap the perimeter numbers. You get 440.
- Triple and overlap the perimeter numbers corner to corner. You get 2,220. The total of the 3 perimeters is 2700.
- Add all three totals The 1st sentence of Genesis totals 2,701. Thus, 40 + 440 + 2220 = 2700. We add the One to the opening sentence of the Torah.
