Vav , the sixth letter, stands for the number six. Yod , the tenth letter, stands for ten, and so on. But there is another, more esoteric value for numbers based on a complex but fascinating system. There are twenty-two Hebrew letters as there were in the Phoenician alphabet from which it derives. And the number twenty-two has a little-known mystical significance. It comes from the fact there are exactly twenty-two regular polygons that can be inscribed in a circle. Why should this idea have any importance?
Greek Isopsephy and its influences on Simple(6,74) English(7,74) Gematria(8,74)
These twenty-two figures would thus symbolise the interaction of heaven and earth. This schema is, as far as I can tell, almost unknown in the English-speaking world. The latter has been translated into English; the former has not. Abellio points out that the esoteric numerical value of each Hebrew letter corresponds to the number of sides of the polygon to which it relates.
For example, the first Hebrew letter, aleph , corresponds to the triangle, the first of the regular polygons. Hence the esoteric value of the aleph is three.
Its value in more familiar versions of gematria is one, because it is the first letter of the alphabet. The second letter, beth , has the value of four, because it corresponds to the next polygon, the square, which has four sides, and so on. Mouravieff adds another dimension to this picture. In the first place, he says this system was expounded esoterically in the th Psalm.
The Greek Qabalah by Kieren Barry - Book - Read Online
This psalm, the longest by far, consists of twenty-two stanzas, each of which corresponds to one of the Hebrew letters. The eight lines of each stanza all begin with that letter.
In the second place, Mouravieff gives a table of the esoteric meanings of these numbers. The last number is of particular interest. Although I have never seen a drawing of this figure, I would imagine that its sides would be so small that you could be fooled into thinking it was a circle. Body Lotions Face Creams.
