Things Needing Further Investigation

Here are some interesting findings which need further investigation. If anyone can shed light on them please contact me.

Cube Values

If we multiply the Gematrias of the 28 letters in Genesis 1:1

This number is a perfect cube =2880000000003

Another cube:
Gematria of First Verse
בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱ-לֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם וְאֵ֥ת הָאָֽרֶץ
913 203 86 401 395 407 296

Multiplying each word together..
913 × 203 × 86 × 401 × 395 × 407 × 296
The cube of G-d's Name = 263 = 17576.

This number appears in the end digits:

Furthermore, the first 11 words in Genesis are:
3853= בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם וְאֵ֥ת הָאָֽרֶץ וְהָאָ֗רֶץ הָֽיְתָ֥ה תֹ֨הוּ֙ וָבֹ֔הוּ
The Gematria of these 11 words = 3853.

The first 3853 digits of Pi sum to 17576 = 263
It is said the 42 letter Name of G-d is in these 11 words.

The sum of the square of the first 22 digits of Pi = 676 = 262.

"26" appears two times in these 22 digits. Namely:
1415926535897932384626 (ends at 7th digit and 22nd digit)

We also saw the first verse has Roshei Teivot (1st letters)=22 and number of words=7. This ratio of 22/7 is the best approximation to Pi for any ratio of numbers until 333/106

If anyone can shed light on this, please let me know.

End Letters

Sofei Teivot of First 11 Words
with Preceding Letters
בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם וְאֵ֥ת הָאָֽרֶץ וְהָאָ֗רֶץ הָֽיְתָ֥ה תֹ֨הוּ֙ וָבֹ֔הוּוּ֙ Gematria
ת א ם ת ם ת ץ ץ ה ו ו 1478
ש א ל ש ל ש פ פ ד ה ה 1135

Note also that for Genesis 1:1, these end letters form two consecutive Hebrew words and the letter Peh. Peh could mean "times" or "Pi"?
Sofei Teivot of First Verse
with Preceding Letters
בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם וְאֵ֥ת הָאָֽרֶץ
ת א ם ת ם ת ץ
ש א ל ש ל ש פ
=ask three times?שאל שלש פ

If anyone can figure out what this means (if anything), please contact me.

Fine Structure Constant

Does the Universe around us have a fundamental structure that can be glimpsed through special numbers?

The brilliant physicist Richard Feynman (1918-1988) famously thought so, saying there is a number that all theoretical physicists of worth should "worry about". He called it "one of the greatest damn mysteries of physics: a magic number that comes to us with no understanding by man".

That magic number, called the fine structure constant, is a fundamental constant. It actually combines three of nature's fundamental constants - the speed of light, the electric charge carried by one electron, and the Planck's constant... see here for more.

Interestingly, the fine structure constant is 1/137 or 0.0073..(0.0072973)
note 37 and 73.
As before, Genesis 1:1 = 2701 = 37×73
Interestingly, 2701×137 = 370037
also interesting: 773 = 137th prime number.
and 2.701×0.02701=0.07295401

Speed of Light

The speed of light is exactly 299,792,458 meters per second (the meter is the international standard unit of length and is now defined by the speed of light, so this number is exact). As known, the speed of light is the only thing absolute and unchanging in the universe.

The digit sum of the speed of light = 2+9+9+7+9+2+4+5+8=55.

The Gematria of Genesis 1:1 = 2701 = 37×73
The midpoint between 37 and 73 = 55.
55 is also the 10th triangular number and the 10th Fibonacci number. No other number is both a triangular number and a Fibonacci number. We have seen many times the importance of 10.

55 is also unique number in that it is the only number with digit sum=10 (5+5=10) whose sum of hundreds always reduces to itself when raised to any power. For example:
16+63+75=154 (1+54=55)
So too for all powers. It always reduces back to 55. In that sense it is the one and only number which points continuously to 10 for all powers (in the sum of hundreds) (the only other numbers which acts like this is 45 and 99. These latter two are due to the properties of 9 - 45=4+5=9, and 99=9+9=18=1+8=9).

Interestingly, the words multiplied of Genesis 1:1 has this perfection of sum of hundreds = 55:
Gematria of First Verse
בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱ-לֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם וְאֵ֥ת הָאָֽרֶץ
913 203 86 401 395 407 296
Multiplying Gematrias of Words:

Sum of the Hundreds:

Thus, Genesis 1:1 has this perfection of being unchanging in its sum of hundreds for the words multiplied. As before the speed of light is also unchanging.


Metushelach lived 969 years on earth (Gen 5:27), the longest living person ever reported in any text. Metu means "died" in plural and "shelach" means "send/dismiss". Hence, in his name it is written that he was able, so to speak, "to send away deaths" in plural. He was able to get rid of the effect of aging in disintegration and corrosion more than any other human being.

Normally, there is a regular process of deterioration, whether naturally (aging), or by increased speed of it as from illness or accident etc, namely, that in a "boom" stopped the functionality of the soul - simply because a bullet in the brain requires life-support that the nefesh-hachayah (soul of life) - for the most most part cannot support the "push" so much all at once. So it causes a very quick process of corrosion - a very accelerated one in which the cells of the body are losing the blood and life-force that run in them through the nefesh-hachayah and the nefesh-hachayah is not designed to push so many types of instant missing needs of vitality etc., for all other causes, faster or slower etc.

In any event, any type of very quick such deterioration in the pace of corrosion and disintegration is considered death - but most people also experience death slowly and more naturally and a few exceptionally never did - like Eliyahu-Hanavi or Chanoch. However - this is very very irregular or essentially does not exist in reality.

So let us only look at someone that lasted longer than anyone else normally - Metushelach. His name is 784 in gematria, a perfect and exact square of 28, i.e. 28 times 28, the "perfection" of "28" - the famous gematria in Hebrew of "koach" which means power/strength.

Also indicated in his name that he had special "power" and "strength" more than all other humans that resulted in 969 years of life, the maximum life-span in time of a soul that is able to do its max in the dark era where death dominates life so to speak. In the end of days, the life-force will dominate corrosion and disintegration to a higher extent than now, enough and more to sustain the body from suffering any corrosion and alike. "life" will increase its power over "death" - corrosion not only slowing down as now - but actually stopping.. (R.Omer Furmanski)

Metushelach also has small gematria=28 and ordinal gematria=82, hinting to Genesis 1:1. According to the midrash, he was a warrior of Kedusha (holiness). The Milui of his name is מם תאו וו שין למד חית = 1351 = the central point of Genesis 1:1!! (heard from Oren Evron) What is the connection between him and Genesis 1:1?

In this series, we have explored some levels down the stairwell of divine wisdom. Keep in mind this stairwell is bottomless; there is endlessly more to discover. On the contrary, the more we advance, the more we realize how much more there is to know. We find this exact same phenomena in nature. Every advance in science leads to bigger and deeper questions, especially in the fields of physics and microbiology. The modern scientists are climbing a mountain that just keeps getting higher.

Go and see just how incredibly complex the machinery of the cell is (see our series "Marks of Divine Wisdom"). In the world of science from Aristotle to Newton, the ultimate goal was to achieve perfect systematic knowledge that was in perfect harmony with our rational mind. The contemporary scientist, however, is revealing a new kind of knowledge: one that is so vast and awesome in its scope and implications, that it boggles our common, rational view of life and nature. Instead it leads us to a state of complete awe and wonder of the creation. It is this study that helps us gain a greater appreciation of the Infinite G-d (Avraham Apatow).
