And at last, they were involved in calculation work at the time of conclusion. Gematria is a form of the numerological system using which Hebrew letters signify numbers. This kind of number system was introduced by great Jewish mysticism, Kabbalah, which originated from the Greek influence. It acts as one of the fantastic tools that helped in interpreting biblical texts. After all, according to one gematria calculator, the word “gematria” has the same value as “foolish” — but also “messiah.” And “horse.” It’s totally obvious what that means. The main focus of the Kabbalistic use of gematria is on the name of God. The tetragrammaton, or the Hebrew name of God in four letters, YHWH, was the original focus of gematria. Leeds has applied his cipher of the English alphabet to the tetragrammaton and believes there is something there. 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. It’s been a while, and I’ve been busy with VR game development, but I took a break recently to finish working out the gematria of Brashith 1-2, and rather than write a book about it I’ve put it online and made it freely available. It’s the culmination of several years of decipherment, and the calculations for all the verses have been set out on a webpage on my Shematria site. I hope that it will provide insight into this ancient system of Hebrew mathematics that was employed by the Patriarchs to clarify and categorize their writings. By comparing letters to each other using gematria, you will make note of how other words match as well as how the numbers have been assigned. The letters 42 are equal to 42, which is an expression best known for stating “Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything.”. We have also shown that to obtain “exactly” 2 (with the approximation implicit in using Napier’s number “e”), it suffices to add only 4.5 hours to 1737 × 7 × 24 hours.
