    This technique of permuting letters plays an important role in Kabbalistic wisdom. Alternative alphabets are similarly based on exchanging letters in an orderly manner, revealing deeper and more hidden aspects of the Torah. Gematria, Jewish numerology, works according to the same principle. Similar to how physics and chemistry rest on a mathematical foundation, so too, deeper dimensions of Torah are revealed thoughgematria. Mispar ha-Akhor – The value of each letter is its standard value multiplied by the position of the letter in a word or a phrase in either ascending or descending order. This method is particularly interesting, because the result is sensitive to the order of letters. It assigns the values 1–9, 10–90, 100–400 to the 22 Hebrew letters in order. Sometimes it is also called Mispar ha-Panim , as opposed to the more complicated Mispar ha-Akhor . Although a type of gematria system (‘Aru’) was employed by the ancient Babylonian culture, their writing script was logographic, and the numerical assignments they made were to whole words. The value of these words were assigned in an entirely arbitrary manner and correspondences were made through tables, and so cannot be considered a true form of gematria. Aru was very different from the gematria systems used by Hebrew and Greek cultures, which used alphabetic writing scripts. Similar systems have been used in other languages and cultures derived from or inspired by Hebrew gematria; Arabic abjad numerals, and English gematria. There is currently no academic consensus over whether Hebrew gematria or Greek isopsephy was used first. In Hebrew, every letter is given a numerical value and those values can be added up to achieve the numerical value of a word. The concept of gematria numerology stems from the idea that mathematics is the universal language of nature and within it may be the keys to explaining our universe or evidence of supernatural power.

Marty Leeds has taken this concept of the Kabbalistic gematria and applied it to the English language, believing that he has found a cipher in our alphabet to prove this theory. If you have implemented the Full Reduction Gematria, then it should be clear to you that the Reverse Full Gematria is completely a reverse to the Full Reduction Gematria. You can find the value of any word by the gematria calculator, as it is simple to understand the code.
