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.
MUSIC AND MATH SHARE THE RULE OF 9’S
Music and math share the rule of 9’s. I find this very appropriate because music and numbers also share in usage of the same side of the brain. Words, on the other hand, use other side of the brain. I will first demonstrate the rule of 9’s by music. Then I will demonstrate it with numbers. Inversion means to reverse the order, be it of numbers or the two tones of a musical interval sounding at the same time. A unison inverts to an octave as 1 + 8 = 9. The second inverts to the seventh as 2 + 7 = 9. The third inverts to a sixth as 3 + 6 = 9. The fourth inverts to a fifth as 4 + 5 = 9. Change in the quality ( major to minor intervals or diminished to augmented)) will be the subject of a future blog
HOW ADDITION — USES THE RULE OF 9’S
Now let’s look at inverted numbers. If someone is adding an entire column of numbers in a ledger, once in a while the digits in any one number might be mistakenly reversed. For example, instead of writing 189, you write 198; or instead of writing 235, you write 532. This act is comparable to inverting or reversing musical tones. If what you expected the total to be, as opposed to what it is, differs by a multiple of nine, then you inverted or reversed the digits of the numbers in the manner that I have just demonstrated. Here is the proof: 198-189 = 9. With the second example, 532 – 235 = 297 When you divide 297 by 9, the quotient is 33. Let’s take a larger number: When you record 23,572 as 32,572 the difference is 9,000. That is also a multiple of nine.
In conclusion, since math and music are virtually twins, to study one without the other is like separating these twins, How sad! The study of mathematics must be complemented by the study of music.
Every child in school should be given the opportunity to learn music through piano lessons or musical programs at school.
The point I made above is amply demonstrated by Albert Einstein; a great mathematician who played the violin. The fictional detective genius sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, also played the violin. Arthur Conan Doyle realized the importance of music and how it is a part of superior intellect. One more word on the rule by 9’s. In the highest court of our land, the Supreme Court, we also have a rule by nine. The founding fathers of America were also brilliant.
Albert Einstein is the prototype of the musical mathematician. He played the violin. In his writings he discusses how one the the best moments of his life was one he received a good review by a music critic for playing .
