It’s fun to speculate. This is true- be it for thoughts or gold. Both can be immensely satisfying. That being said, I have a source for this blog: Physicist Aryeh Kaplan in “The Book of Creation.” As a matter of fact, he was the youngest physicist ever employed by the United States government.
Kaplan explains cycles of seven in cosmic timing. For example, the 1st Temple stood for 410 years. During this period Israel observed seven jubilees. The extended jubilee period lasts 49,000 years. Seven such periods lasts 343,000 years. These are divine years. A Divine Year lasts 365,250 earthly years. Based on these statistics we have:
The total time between the initial expansion and collapse of the Universe is 125,287,500,000 years. Kaplan states this figure is very close to scientific speculation. That corresponds to approximately 125 billion years.
Using this computation, eventually human life span will be expanded to the order of eighty million years! Certainly, Ira Gershwin’s lyrics would have to be rewritten: No gal will give in to no man what’s eighty million years.
My contribution to the topic of sevens includes the 7 primary number squares. I believe at one time they structured a lost Golden Age of peace and plenty. Primary planetary number squares were numbered from 3 x 3 to 9 x 9.
The first Christians were not insensitive to number seven. Add all the numbers (1-49) in the 7 x 7 number square. They total 1225. It so happens that 12/25 is Christmas Day. Check out my internal link to read more. Please feel free to share.
Longevity for man is Set at One Hundred and Twenty Years. At the bottom of the blog are just a few paraphrases of this Biblical source I found of Genesis 6:3. A basic question not answered anywhere is: Methuselah lived 969 years. Yet the lot of man is only 120. What is going on? The answer lies with the featured picture. If you have been reading my blogs, the 3 x 3 number square is of man. Add the numbers of this square: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 = 45. Adam, as spelled in Hebrew, numbers 45 by gematria: אָדָם (adam): Aleph is the glyph for (1). Dalet is the glyph for (4). Mem is the glyph for (40). Thus, 1 + 4 + 40 = 45, man’s number by gematria.
Man’s shorter life of 120 years comes out of the same square. Here’s how:
Any row of three numbers equals 15. Fifteen can be found in 8 different ways: Three vertical. Three horizontal. Finally in two diagonal ways. Thus, 8 x 15 = 120. Man by the word “Adam”and by life span is defined by this basic number square. Early cultures based their civilizations on number squares. That has been the subject of perhaps most of my blogging.
So, Where is the Longevity of Methuselah?
I have extensively blogged about numerous hidden number codes in the featured picture. One of them would contain the length of Methuselah’s life span. On this number square, adding three numbers (by hundreds) at the time always totals 1,110. Note the following: 492 + 618 = 1,110. 438 + 672 = 1110. Any three numbers that cross the center total 1,110 when added forwards and backwards. For example, 951 + 159 = 1,110. The triple numbers create the longevity code of the Bible.
So where did I learn of this code? On and around Oquaga Lake. I was focused on it by an Indian spirit from the Lennie Lenape tribe. I’ve blogged about my encounter. She dictated an entire volume of poetry. It is on my products page. Eventually all her poems will be in these blogs; so it not necessary to purchase the book.
New International Version
Then the LORD said, “My Spirit will not contend with humans forever, for they are mortal; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.”
Then the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.”
Yet we have Methuselah, the man reported to have lived the longest at the age of 969 in the Hebrew Bible. Extra-biblical tradition maintains that he died on the 11th of Cheshvan of the year 1656AM (Anno Mundi, after Creation), seven days before the beginning of the Great Flood. Methuselah was the son of Enoch, the father of Lamech, and the grandfather of Noah.
