"The Symbolism and Spiritual Significance
of the Number 72"
by Dee Finney
|The Tabernacle was a structure built by the children of Israel under
the supervision of Moses, around 1450 B.C. The layout of the
Tabernacle and the materials of its construction were specified in
great detail to Moses by God at Mount Sinai, a few weeks after the
children of Israel had left hundreds of years of slavery in Egypt (the
Exodus). The Tabernacle was a portable construction, made by wise,
skilful workmen and transported by one tribe (the Levites) through
the 40 years in the desert wilderness and on into the land of Canaan.
|This page was brought about due to a series of dreams and visions
I had over the last 10 years. For most of that time, I was not aware
what the number 72 meant except that I knew it had value. It was
not until I had access to the internet that I could easily find out what
it meant through research by computer. Like the Bible Code wasn't
possible until the invention of the computer, without access to a
University library, one cannot easily do this research. I present
what I have found below, beginning with the pertinent dreams I had
over the years since I started journaling my dreams.
I went to pick up my children. It was a : 172 = 10 = 1
(1 x 72 = 72 = The names of God )
I was bringing my children home. It was a : 372 = 12 = 3
( 3 x 72 = 216 which symbolizes "names of God spoken in the Holy of Holies in the tabernacle") (See this movie: PI )
I went to pick up some black people. It was a : 472 = 13 = 4
( 4 x 72 = 288 which symbolizes 'double light')
I was bringing the black people home. It was a : 572 = 14 = 5
( 5 x 72 = 360 - The Gematrian Wheel - a complete circle)
8-22-90 - (This was a meditation ) As I was raising my vibrations, Billy H. introduced himself to me. I held a conversation with him. He said that he had a bunch of copies of stuff at home, that he wasn't going to give me.
I then got onto an elevator and two thin black men and a white woman got on the elevator with me. The black men were at least 7 feet tall, wearing black pants and silk shirts with a black, red brown and white print... similar to Giraffe markings, but smaller. The white woman stood behind my right shoulder. She was wearing a black skirt and white blouse. They all carried attache cases of medium reddish brown. The men set theirs on the floor. She carried hers safely.
A man who gave me some keys yesterday was standing to my right, wearing reddish brown pants and white shirt. He was now locked out and was waiting for me to let him back in. I found a brown coin purse at the top of the stairs. A voice said, "Are you aware of the value?"
I then saw a calendar or radio dial flip from 18 to 19.
|NOTE: The 18 is the inbetween number of a Gematrian wheel divided into
Number 18 implies the exploration of secret realms - a quest that is not without its perils. Number 8 is evolution and leads to 1+8=9, initiation. It can also be enumerated as 6+6+6=18, referring to initiation of not only of the individual but also of the race. Consisting of the digits 1 and 8, which add up to 9, a connection between the Moon and the Hermit is indicated. In Key 18, we see that there are many hidden things to be learned, even by those who are already advanced on the Path.
The letter Teth is attributed to the 19th Path and represents a serpent curved into a circle. This serpent is identified as the great serpent curled about the world, whom Hebrew tradition calls Theli. In the Sepher Yetzirah, Theli is described as the Dragon of the Stars, set over the universe as a king enthroned. This signifies the sun's ecliptic and therefore, the celestial dragon is defined by the 12 Houses of the Zodiac.
I then called Master Babaji and Jack (TM's cousin) I was then asked,"Where is a good place to put this where HE won't get it. IT was something which would be seen. Babaji suggesting putting it on the corner of the bed. It would be seen there. I said, "No! It would be better to put it on the shelf in the closet, way up high!"
Billy H. said that he wanted to take the information that he won't give me to the 7 Mile Fair. (That's in Milwaukee) I said, "No! You can't do that It will surely cause tragedy."
Babaji started to make a phone call to a woman but got interrupted. I asked Babaji if he would give me the number he was just going to dial so I could give it to TM. He said, "You are both precious!"
I again asked Babaji for the numbers that he had been about to dial. He said, "yes!" It was Jack I was about to call."
Babaji said, "How could a number join us?"
I explained to him that TM had forgotten the numbers he had been given. Babaji said, "Oh! America!" Babaji said, "I am going to watch you to make sure that you are right. Don't worry Dear!"
I heard the ringing of a telephone. I heard TM say, "Let's see what that is.!" We were talking about some kind of difficulty. Babaji said that it was hard to tell when somebody has it.
I again asked Babaji for the number. He seemed to be stalling for some reason and took his shoes off. He said, "I just did that 20 minutes ago." I asked for the numbers again, and he answered, "I have to guard this." I asked for just the last four numbers. He said, "7275". I again asked for the numbers. He said, "I just did that." I saw a silver spoon flip upsidedown and on the bottom was the number. The first 3 digits were 883.
NOTE: (72 x 75 = 5400 which is the co-ordinate intersect of the Sphinx)
In the study of Metrology, which is the study of coins and weights and measures, there aree two sets of standards and 72 = 75 and is regarded to be the same)
http://www.greatdreams.com/gem1.htm - (8+8+3 = 19) (See above also)
I asked Babaji to confirm the numbers and asked him to please call the country club and let me know.
I was decorating for Christmas and I told Babaji that I was going to go all out this year for Christmas. Babaji wanted to know what I wanted for Christmas. I saw that I wanted to work for Spiritual Communications. He said that was a big wide subject. I couldn't decide exactly what kind of communication to ask for. I picked the ability to call for an answer to any question that I had to get an answer. He said that that would be my gift for Christmas.
10-6-90 - MEDIATION - Q. What am I to do with my future?
I heard the number 72. I saw a bunch of people dressed in black walking from right to left except for the tall man at the end who was wearing a rose colored shirt. I felt that these were my children grown up and their spouses. A voice said, "They are old enough for a meeting." I saw someone sitting on a chair, curled upon their right thigh. I got the impression that I am to gather my family together and tell them that they are to move north and west.
A voice said, "I need to call Earl to get those boxes down. I'm going to do that."
I had a conversation with a woman as I was going to sleep. She may have been my higher self. She said that I was suffering from over-stimulation and over-frustration. (I had been complaining that I was too sick to lead a normal life.)
1-3-92 - DREAM - I was headed home down a country road (172nd St. ) when I saw two men on the left. One was strangling the other. I knew that was "the strangler" and I had to get away. There was a road on the right and I headed that way as fast as I could go. The road ended up going under a bridge on a building. There was only one narrow exit and it was blocked by a monk dressed in orange. He allowed me to come into the temple courtyard where I saw many other monks dressed in orange. They were dismantling the temple piece by piece to store it for future usage.
I finally rushed home and someone was cooking oatmeal for breakfast. I knew how to cook it well, but the person cooking was thickening it with flour. When it was done, they threw torn up dollar bills into it. I was mad that they had done this and I pulled all the dollar bills out and threw them on the floor. I told them that they had better save the pieces.
When all the pieces were picked up, I also went through my father's wallet and pulled out all the bill receipts he had stored there. A man came up to me with one of them and it was for a singer at a wedding. I remembered the wedding. The singer had sounded like Andy Williams. The man asked me to look at the bill to see if it had been paid and it appeared to me that it had been even down to an extra 10% they charged to make the music faster so no one would get bored waiting around.
My father decided that he'd go down to the studio on 76th St. to make sure
the bill had been paid because he wanted to use the same singer for another
wedding coming up.
NOTE: The father represents God and the bill represents 'karma'.
There was some other stuff about deciding whether to spend time laying in the sun and whether it might be dangerous and wanting to visit somebody named Ann who lived on 20th St. When I woke up, I heard the noise of a distant temple horn in my left ear.
3-9-92 - DREAM - I was in New Berlin and we had a tester in the house and the potentiometer had gotten weak. There was one on sale at the drug store for $1.40 and Edward (my husband) volunteered to go get it. Somehow I became Edward and as I went north on Calhoun Rd. to National Ave., I saw a huge 3 masted blue boat going east along the road. Lining the road were tall poles with extensions on them with flags waving and it sounded like gunfire.
NOTE: The name Edward means 'guardian'.
The next thing I knew, I was laying alongside the road on National Ave. and the blue boat was east of Calhoun Rd. (172nd St. ) being accompanied by hundreds of men. I didn't know how long I had been laying alongside the road or how I had gotten there, but I knew I had to get the potentiometer and get home.
There was an old woman who lived in a house where I was laying and she had a red blanket laying in a square covered up with plastic. I yanked the blanket out from under the plastic and rolled it up into a bedroll. She called the police to catch me, but I outsmarted them and headed cross fields instead of by road. I ran as fast as I could, going over, under, and through fences the best way I could. Every one of them had an electrified strand across the top, which was demonstrated by a dark haired woman who tested hers by spitting at it from yards away and delighting herself in her accuracy to see the spit fly up in a hissing stream when it hit the wire.
The cops were determined to catch me, but I eluded them and even when I crossed the roads between Racine Ave. and Calhoun Rd. they couldn't catch me.
I was now Dolores again and I came to a finely plowed field just north of my house and met my neighbors from across the street.
I was using a ballpoint pen and writing my life story,using the rows of plants as lines like on a tablet. However, when I wanted to show my neighbors what I had written, it didn't show up. We looked closer and saw that when the dew glistened in sparkling droplets on the lines of lettering in the new sunlight, we could make out the lines, but I knew I'd have to write it out in longhand on yellow legal paper and then type it up on the computer for anyone to be able to read it. I finally got home then and a friend had been kind enough to loan me a potentiometer for my tester and it was working fine again.
3-10-92 -DREAM - I was out in the State of Washington, living in a huge side by side duplex. I was lounging in the livingroom. The only light in the room was the blue light from the television set. The rest of the house was dark. I heard the phone ring. I saw that the A's. (business name) line was red and I could hear a woman screaming, "Help me, I'm in trouble. Someone pick up the line." I picked up the receiver and the first line came on green and it was my mother. I said, "Hi!" and told her I was trying to pick up the other line. Then I saw that the kitchen door to the outside was open. I told my mother that I had better lock up and then go to bed. Just then I heard a noise in the dark in the kitchen. I picked up a "switch" (short stick) to defend myself with and an old black man came out of the kitchen towards me. He also carried a "switch". (He was wearing a brown suit) I started dueling with him and chased him outside, continuing to try to whip him with the stick. I told him that if he ever came back again that I'd kill him.
A car pulled up then and two guys got out, dressed just like the old black man. I was prepared to fight again, but the shortest guy walked up to the garage and asked where I was from. He said, "Oh! Wisconsin! He read off the license number on the bicycle being towed behind my car. The number was '7275" He continued up to the garage and there was several men and women in the garage making porno movies or having sex or something. the guy said, "We've got to stop making house calls like this. It was then I realized that he was an undercover cop. I told him that I had found a guy in my kitchen, but I didn't know if he had taken anything. We walked into the kitchen and there was a huge birthday cake sitting there with some frosting missing off of one side. I then saw big chunks of wedding cake, half eaten. I had two thoughts immediately. The first one was, "I don't need my daughter to make frosting for me, I can do it for myself." My second thought was, "I would donate these cakes to the local orphanage if they didn't have frosting missing. It's too much for me to eat."
The cops were trying to turn on the lights but the switches weren't working. I wondered if the old black man had stolen the light bulbs. I saw that there was a gas stove and one burner was on with a blue gas flame. That was the only light in the room. From that light, I saw a stand like a candelabra with many little cakes on it. I reached for another light switch to see what else was in the room and something grabbed me under the arm. I started to scream and woke up, feeling like a mouse was running up my side and I was screaming out loud and my heart was beating so hard and so loud, I could heart it with my ears. Then I realized that I was feeling no chest discomfort, no shortness of breath, no angina pains. Then I thought," Jesus must have healed me." when my heart slowed down and I realized where I really was and that no mouse was crawling over me, that the dream was trying to tell me the "sugar" (from the cake frosting) was robbing life from me and that's what I needed to lock out of my life and that perhaps the old man with the brown suit could have been D. (a friend) and I needed to lock him out too because he was stealing from me.
March 3, 1996 - Dream (by a friend of Dee)
I was in a somewhat darkened building on an upper floor. Someone informed me that I was to become the Anti-Christ. Upon receiving this impression, I became very agitated with the realization that being the Anti-Christ was the anti-thesis of everything that Christ represented. This perception of being Anti-Christ was very troubling and that state of consciousness remained with me for the entire dream experience.
I thought clearly of references to the Anti-Christ in the Bible's book of Revelation. One could readily sense the spiritual damage the Anti-Christ would sow among man. I even dwelt upon a past Anti-Christ that existed 2,000 years ago. He became the most hated, reviled and despised human being in history. The entire thought of Anti-Christ and it's meaning was overpowering.
From the higher level of the building, I descended some wooden stairs to the first floor. The first floor seemed to be located in the South or Southwest corner of 72nd and Greenfield (near the AC headquarters - the spiritual work center for me) 72 = 7 + 2 = 9
D.F. came to me at the 72nd and Greenfield location and asked for a charge number that would be used for all work associated with Anti-Christ activities. D.F. was going to be a full participant for these activities. She was requested that at the very least she should provide the charge number representing some good, i.e. 3, 7, or 9, not 4, 6, or 8.
Note, although D.F. had requestion the charge number, she was actually going to provide it.
Further, to asking for a "good number" D.F. was advised that the 1996 was 7.
(1+9+9+6 or 1+15=1+6=7)
D.F. was using the dates 4/29/1996 and 4/30/1996 to obtain the charge number.
(4/30/96 = 7=7=14 = 5 and 4/29/96 = 4+2+7 =4)
The reason for wanting "good numbers" was to counteract the overwhelming negativity associated with Anti-Christ activities.
I am not aware of what the final number was to be used.
Lastly, someone other than D.F. advised me or the impression entered my mind that the Anti-Christ activities would last for three years. Using the figure 3 and adding it to the year 1997, the resulting year was going to be the year 2000 AD. Thinking this over, I realized that the period of time, 1997 through to the year 2000 AD was correct.
With the understanding of the time spanning 3 years, someone again (unknown) informed me or intuitively the thought entered my mind that the Anti-Christ activities would be miracles, healing, teaching, etc. so as to mislead the people.
EOD (Note: It is one thing to BE the Anti-Christ and it is another thing to be thought of AS the Anti-Christ)
6-8-97 - VISION - While listening to the 72 names of God, I could see a yellow sheet of paper with the 72 names of God written in brown ink.
This is the story and meditations done when I met Joe. It fits totally with this page.It includes all these numbers and references to the Tetragrammaton being magickal.
8-4-97 Dream: I was traveling south on Calhoun Rd. I looked behind me and saw my favorite mountains in Washington State. They were way back so I knew I was headed south towards California. I came to the intersection of National Ave. The light was green but it was blocked from me for the moment to allow cars going north and left turn to go first. I was asked by the dream voice if I wanted to see my name. They showed me "Dolores". (This is important in comparing the next dream)
8-4-97 - Dream #2 - I went into a large office building and was taken upstairs to where I was going to work. They were going to take me to show me my name plate and told me to look up into the air. My name was shown to me. It was "SYNTHESIS".
A CHANNELED MESSAGE - DANGER IN SOUTH AFRICA
by Dee - 3-17-98
In 1972, in Southern Africa, 'Me he ki he de' was given a message from spirit. He spoke to his people and told them of a great travesty coming. There would be much fire and water but not at the same time. Great roaring winds would come and wipe everything off the land, so they needed to go underground.
To this day, they are prepared with food, stockpiled for 7 years. This is the way it will be for them... but not for all. Many will not survive. The great wind is coming soon and those not prepared will not survive.
NOTE: 1+9+7+2 = 19 = 10 = 1
5-2-98 - DREAM - Part I - I saw a dinosaur coming down from the sky and it landed in a cave opening. I went inside the cave and there were two men in the cave who were archaeologists who were looking at the dinosaur. I went over to see what they were doing. It wasn't a live dinosaur, nor did it have skin on, and where the bones were supposed to be, it was made out of faceted jewels, many, many different colors. . It was really huge. I went up closer to look at the dinosaur and the jewels were beautiful. The jewels were all finely faceted and it looked like it had been made by a person. After we looked at the dinosaur, I and the archaeologists went to a restaurant where we were going to have lunch. The head archaeologist ordered champagne and something really expensive. The other archaeologist protested and said, "Oh, you shouldn't have done it, ". He was appreciating it, but saying those words, and the first archaeologist got pissed off and started hollering at him. But the guy really meant well.
Part II - Because of the jeweled dinosaur, I was given $2,500,000. With that money, I bought a humongous silver and blue bus (like the Greyhound type - only bigger) This was to take people to church. I didn't know anyone in particular to do this with. I was living in the old A-C building on 70th and Greenfield. (I used to work there) I parked the bus on 72nd and Washington Streets. (I used to live there) I walked into the executive building of A-C which is on the west side of 70th St. (the opposite side of the street from where I was living). I walked all the way through the building and gave my bus keys to the woman in charge of keeping the keys in that building. She hung them on a peg inside the door for safekeeping. She was in charge of all the keys and she had many pegs with keys on them in that room. I walked across the street then to the old A-C building which is where I lived. It was then about 9 a.m. Church began at 10 a.m. and I planned to drive the bus. I knew it would be crowded there and thought about parking the bus in the middle of the street. The church was on 76th and Wisconsin Ave. I then walked back across the street to the executive building to get the keys to the bus and there were no keys in that room. A woman who was standing in the doorway of the room said that the woman who was the Keeper Of the Keys was making her rounds and had taken all her keys with her. I became very upset because I wanted to go to church and it was getting nearer and nearer to 9:30 a.m. She ran around the building and found the Keeper Of the keys and brought them to me, and handed me the keys to the bus. I still didn't have anyone to go to church with, but as I walked down the hall, people began to notice that I had the keys to the bus that was going to church. I don't know how they knew this, but they somehow became aware that I was going to drive the bus to church. I met T.M. in the hallway and offered him a ride to church because I knew he was going there himself. I told him I would meet him on 70th St. on the sidewalk and walk with him to the bus and drive him to church. At that point he didn't know I had the bus. As I was walking through the hallway to the street, I noticed a room on the left where prostitutes hung out, did their makeup and changed clothes. They noticed that I was going to church and they wanted to go with me. So, as I exited the building going East to 70th St., I had a troop of female prostitutes behind me. When I came out of the building on 70th St. I found myself on the edge of the ocean. (Lake Michigan is about 25 miles East of that point, so this is not consistent with reality) Where the sidewalk was supposed to be, there was a very narrow wall holding up the earth between the building and the beach where the ocean was. This wall provided a narrow place to walk down to the beach as an alternative instead of walking on the sidewalk. Walking along the ocean actually went to the same place, it was just more beautiful. I saw T.M. walking along the sidewalk way above me, and I waved and "Yoo hooed" to him and he came down the narrow walkway and joined me on the beach. I noticed that when I put my arm around his waist, he was very fat and soft (unlike reality) We met some other people along the beach. It was now about 9:30 a.m. (I remember one man was an attorney who lived in my Jackson St. building) He was laughing and jovial, but he told us there wouldn't be any room in the church for us when we got there. But I knew that when the church proper was full, you could climb the stairs and sit in the choir loft and that was what I was planning to do. When then climbed the stairs and walked up Washington Street to where my bus was parked. At this point we were being trailed by a lot of people who were going to ride on the bus with us to church.
10-17-98 - DREAM - Joe and I moved into this new apartment building. I'm sure this was the same building at the previous dream. I was a teacher of the children here. We lived on the 3rd floor. Joe and I were in our apartment and Becky (my ex-daughter-in-law) came to visit. The door to the hallway was open and the couple across the hall was having a fight. A tiny little girl came walking into the apartment and came over to where Joe and I were sitting. Her name was Judy. Joe picked her up and she climbed over onto my lap and I held her. I wanted Becky to see her. Judy was a tiny child like in the previous dream. She had little legs and arms but a bigger head and thin blonde hair. Becky wasn't paying attention, just looking around the apartment. I tried to get her attention, but then she went to the bathroom to "take a crap" and she didn't see the child. The child left and then I had to take Becky back out of the building and we went down the elevator. The door opened on the 2nd floor and I could see on the 2nd floor was still under construction. when I came back to the building, I stopped at the little gift shop by the front door of the lobby. All three items were for sale and had been hand crafted by people who lived in the building. I had to move a black shiny bicycle to see the items . I couldn't get it to stand up by itself so had to lay it down.
I particularly payed attention to two items. One was a stained glass candle holder. It was an upright box. The edges were made of thin sticks of wood. The walls of the box on the lower sides were opaque greyish white glass and on the top were various triangles of blue green, red and yellow. It was really pretty. One of the other items which I looked very closely at a series of thread works similar to tatting. It was made of thin sticks frames and n between the sticks the thread work was done in intricate knots. The thread was very thin crochet cotton of bright blue. the price on the 3 inch one was $272. (2 x 72 = 144 = Light) There were two smaller sizes and two larger sizes. The two larger ones were labeled "Ask for price". they were that expensive. I wanted to try to make this myself but knew I wouldn't remember the design. I thought maybe I could xerox the pattern but there were other people in the shop and I couldn't sneak one out and copy the pattern.
The building maintenance man came in then and wanted to make an appointment to come upstairs. He sat down at a table. I told him he was going to have to call before he came up. I had trouble coming up with the number because we had just moved in. I said it was 278-3874. ( 2+7+8+3+8+7+4 = 39 = 12 or 3) I had to emphasize the 3 because it was trying to look like a 5. I told him he had to be there before 10 p.m. because the aliens came between 10 and 11:30 p.m.
I put the bicycle away before I left. I then went to the elevator. The door opened and a tall, thin, black woman got off. The elevator was dark inside. She said, "One other is going up with you."
I hesitantly got on the elevator not knowing what to expect. When I turned around to face the door the light brightened in the elevator and I saw a tall thin blonde woman standing to my right. Since I'm almost 6 foot tall myself, the blonde woman had to be at least 7 feet tall.
As the elevator went up, the door opened on the 2nd floor as it had on the way down. I told the woman that this floor was under construction but was surprised to see how much work had been done since I went down the elevator. They were in process of putting pink insulation into the walls of the rooms now.
The door closed and we ascended to the 3rd floor. The door opened and we both got off the elevator. Ahead of us were brightly lit showcases full of jewelry of gold and silver. I particularly noticed a pair of earrings that were made of many long strands of gold linked together and it glittered in the light. The woman admired the jewelry and I said, "This is nothing!" You should see the showcase down this way...pointing down the hall toward where my apartment was.
At the same time, I noticed that there was a railing beyond the showcases where one could look over at something several stories down. (In several other dreams there were exotic animal places.) This time I didn't look because I heard someone screaming from way down the hall towards where my apartment was.
The man was screaming, "Aliens! Aliens! Aliens!" From that I knew it had to be 10 p.m. but I didn't want to confront the screaming man. (Note: I wasn't afraid of the aliens, I just didn't want to confront the screaming, out of control man) So, I ran into an open closet where the light was on. I tried to shut off the light but it wouldn't go off and I tried to shut the door and it just swung through. The door was shaped really weirdly. It was narrow on the top and really wide at the bottom, with one side on an angle like a trapezoid.
I could hear the man coming down the hall still screaming, "Aliens! Aliens! Aliens!" I ducked down behind a dresser-like thing with drawers in it, hoping he wouldn't see me if he came into the closet, but he ran all the way into the closet anyway, and I had to stand up and calm him down. when I got done explaining that everything was all right, he started singing the line from the song that goes, "Life is just a bowl of cherries."
NOTE: I told Joe about the glass candle holder. He asked me if I could draw it and I said, "Yes!" He wants to make one. I went on the computer and found on-line instructions for tatting, macrame, and string art. Now we are in business.
4-10-99 - VISION - I saw two triangles...one from the left and one from the right. They came together, one above the other, then I saw the number 172. (perhaps a timing number)
(1x72 = 72 = Number of the divine names of God and the 72 years is 1 degree of the precession of the equinoxes through the zodiac signs. 72 x 360 = 25,920 (the precession number of years)
8-8-99 - DREAM - I was in a house with Joe and a couple of my kids. It was my New Berlin house. (Joe never saw that house) I had a computer and I could see that there were words there, but there was no light behind them so I couldn't read them. I knew I had to figure out how to turn the light on so I could see the words.
I had three books from the library. I had only read two of them, but I didn't want them all to be late, so I decided to take the two back and worry about the third one later.
Before I left, however, Joe and I stood in front of a blue bulletin board in the bedroom. In the upper left hand corner were ribbons like awards, but in the center, there was long black hair growing. I took a hand hair trimmer and began to cut the hair back. My daughter said, "Why are you doing that?" Joe said, "We were told that we are holding back." I knew there was more hair in a brush from brushing this long hair, but I would worry about that later, I had to get to the library.
Tom, my son, said he would drive me to the library. I got into a car but there was nothing in front of me and nothing on the sides. I was sitting on the seat and had to hold onto the sides. I had to hold my bare feet up so they didn't drag in the road ahead of the car. Tom was driving his vehicle and I was thinking, "Jeep" and that he must be driving from above and behind me, because I couldn't see him, yet I knew he was there.
We headed south on Calhoun Rd. (172nd St. ) and a black car came towards us heading the other way and swerved to the side at the last second. Tom slowed the vehicle down and they acknowledge each other.
We made a right turn at the corner, but I was tired of holding my feet up and decided I would drive myself to the library when we got to the next intersection which was a Y shape where the Peace Lutheran church stood that we attended.
Tom stopped the vehicle and I looked at my feet which were not blue on the tops and a little dirty. I could have driven barefoot but I didn't think they would like it if I walked into the library that way, so I could decided what to do.
NOTE: The Y shape is the part of the woman's body where the legs meet. Joe had this dream in June of 1991) Three energy lines go out from the center, one to the left, one to the right, and one downward. Then the energy lines go out from the center towards the sides. A voice said, "Some say there are three ways of unfolding the world. We say two!"
NOTE: At the time of Confucius, the Chinese Sage, about 500 B.C., in place of the triangle, the Chinese used a glyph in the form of the present-day Y. This they called: "the Great Term", "the Great Unite", "the Great Y". "The Y has neither body nor shape, all that has body and shape was made by that which has no shape. The Great Term or the Great Unite prehend three - One in three - and three in One."
8-10-99 - The radio was on while I had this dream, so I don't know how valid it is.
DREAM - I was in New Berlin. I both lived and worked at my house. I was going to go somewhere and went north on Calhoun Rd. (172nd St.) I got to the top of the hill where the two churches were and looked back. The valley below was so beautiful and my eyesight was perfectly clear. I wanted to go on but I saw something that made me come back to warn the others.
I saw female soldiers coming out of the woods and fields, heading for a house on the west side of the road. None of them were armed yet, but they were in uniform, all wearing that ugly green khaki color...long shorts and shirts.
They didn't bother me as I passed by as they weren't at war yet, but they were gathering together.
When I got back in my own building, I didn't know who was safe to tell about the gathering army.
I saw the boss having a meeting across the hall . . . Paul and ____. I went over and closed the door so they wouldn't be bothered. The boss acknowledged my presence and nodded when I indicated I was closing the door.
I had knowledge that a famous Princess had lost the button off her white coat, but I found it on the floor and headed towards where she was to sew it back on. However, I discovered that there was a spy in the building and I put him off the trail to finding the button. He didn't seem to know what exactly was missing.
I went to get the needle and thread to sew on the button before anyone noticed it was gone, and ended up sewing it to a huge pillow for a couch as it appeared the stuffing was coming out. I didn't have enough thread to make a knot at the end but it was sewed shut at least.
I then went to my bedroom and a radio announcer came in to do a show. He lay on the bed, reading the news into the microphone and I and another man were laying on the floor listening. What a cushy job I thought.
NOTE: That last part I now had bled through from the physical.
11-26-99 - DREAM - I was the manager of an apartment building on Jackson St. where I had worked before in Milwaukee, WI. They hired me and I started work, but never went into the office, so I didn't have a clue what was going on. There was a maintenance room in the southeast corner of the first floor. My old friend and maintenance man Michael was in charge of it. I had to go in there to get a key made for my apartment because I had lost it. I also needed a mail box key so I could get my mail which I hadn't picked up for awhile. There were so many guys in the room, none actually working. They were sitting around talking, and young boys who should have been in school were sitting at a counter doing their homework, or being homeschooled.
Some women came in and offered me gifts while I was waiting. The men had been making crafts out of maintenance parts and they were really cute, little boards in various shapes you hung on your wall with hooks to hang keys on. All these gifts were full of keys and they gave me several of them. One of the maintenance men was actually inside a cabinet sorting out keys from packages. I finally got my own keys and went to get my mail. I had a stack of it. I decided I didn't want the small apartment I had been offered because it was so small, so I said I wanted the keys to apartment 212 and took all my stuff up there. I had so much mail and gifts from the women, it took me two trips to carry it all.
While I was going up the stairs, I could see all the work that was being done around the building. The first floor was being patched roughly after all the green carpet was being ripped out, and carpet of brown, blue and red was being laid down in sectioned areas, but hadn't been stretched and tacked yet, so I had to walk over all the lumps and bumps.
I met the carpet layers on the stairs and they guaranteed me it was going to look good when they were done and I replied that I knew they always did a good job.
I got to my new apartment. It was huge and I loved it because of its size, but it had ugly red and black plaid carpet on the floor. But I couldn't find a closet to hang my coat in. I knew what the doors led to, other huge rooms, but there were no closets. Other women followed me into the apartment and were astonished that I had no furniture. But I still had another place to live and I could move a few things each day, there was no hurry to move everything at once.
Once I got in the apartment, I realized that my rent was going to be more than my wages that I had agreed on. My rent was going to be over $1,000 a month for that apartment. I wasn't going to make that much, so I was going to have to get a second job to fill in the rest of the money.
So, I left the building, seeing my old bosses Paul and __?__ on the way through the hall. They went into a 1st floor office. I continued on my way outside.
I went down to the corner where there was a large intersection. The place I was going to apply for a job was on the northeast corner of the intersection, it was a huge building surrounded by a fence, huge lawns, bridges, and moats of a sort.
Outside the fence were people dressed in raggedy old clothes and young men with misshapen faces which had been damaged somehow by some kind of horrendous event and they all had old men who were their keepers who led them around by the hand. I didn't want to get near any of them because their faces were so horrible to look at . . . what you would think was caused by nuclear war radiation perhaps, and they were all hanging around a gate where the common people went in for jobs.
So, when I saw another gate farther up the street where the executives went in and out and went across the bridge to the office. It seems that tourists went in this gate also because the men who were on the bridge didn't look down on me or ask questions as I went across the bridge.
I entered the building and found the elevator easily enough. The door opened automatically and a voice on the speaker boomed out, "Please step to the center of the circle and press your desired button". It was a one person elevator and the buttons were red and lined up in a straight line on the far wall in the back. The circle on the floor in the center was large enough for one person to stand on and had a 6 pointed star in the center of medium green and light green variegated linoleum and the circle and star were of gold metal.
As soon as I stepped on the circle, the elevator started upward. There was no chance to press a button, the door closed behind me and the elevator started to rise quickly. I could feel the sensation of rising fast.
When the elevator stopped, I stepped off into a hallway. I don't know what floor it was. There was a beautiful woman walking through the hallway and other beautiful women, all dressed in dress suits beyond her. She smiled and I said I was looking for a job. She cheerily laughed and said that there were 72 men executives who ran this place and only 17 women executives. She said that the women planned to change this ratio but it would take some time. She said she would hire me on the spot, so I was very happy.
However, she handed me a yellow dress uniform with a white apron to put on and said I could change in the bathroom. I must have looked a little stunned and didn't know which way the bathroom was. There was a stairway right there. She pointed down... and said..."The bathroom is downstairs, and the kitchen is upstairs. The bathroom is in the "F" section." That made some sense to me, so I began to go down the stairs. I met a pretty blonde woman dressed in yellow with a white apron on the stairs swabbing the steps. Her left breast fell out of her dress as she bent over. The dress obviously was very low cut. I got the picture immediately... I would be swabbing floors, not being an executive. However, it was a foot in the door and I could work my way up.
When I got down the stairs I saw a great many dour faced men, all dressed in dark grey suits. They looked at me with disdain. I looked down one hallway. There were paddle-type signs at each doorway. They all started with F, FA, FE, FI, etc. all the way down the hall. In the next direction, the hallway had all paddle-type signs starting with C, CA, CE, CH, etc. Each of these rooms had a man in charge of it. I assumed that each letter combination of the alphabet had it's own hallway or floor.
I started looking for the bathroom, not seeing it immediately. I knew I had to go down the F hallway but I didn't know how far. I started down the hallway and woke up.
12-30-99 - DREAM - I was at a school, which was made of grey stone. It seemed to be a school for adults and I was one of the teachers. I participated in some kind of ceremony. I don't know how this was accomplished, but there were 8 glossy black cards, each with a man wearing a red cape that was floor length on the back, facing away... so you saw only his back and the cape, not his face. The cards were placed such:
I I I
I I I
In the ceremony, the man in the red cape made broad sweeping arm gestures which were accompanied by sound of perhaps a trumpet or something that sounded like a trumpet. Only the bottom two cards were sounded in this particular ceremony. The one on the left corner had three arm movements and three sounds. The one on the right had two arm movements and two sounds. One could assume from that that the other cards had arm movements and sound also, starting with nine on the upper left, ending with the two on the bottom right. There was no card in the number one position.
After the ceremony, I was talking in a quiet conversation with another female teacher and kinda choked on a word and made a sound that ended with a 'isht' sound, then continued the sentence. Afterwards, I discovered that one of the male teachers had tape recorded this whole thing, the ceremony, plus my conversation and intended to give it to a radio broadcast station. He was telling others that I had said a 'bad' word ending in 'isht' perhaps there is such a word in a foreign language. However, I had not said a word, only cleared my throat and I became irate that he was going to do this terrible deed to defame me. So, I went into the classroom where he sat surrounded by other male teachers. I confronted him and demanded that he give me the audio tape with my voice on it. I was very assertive and said, "Give me the tape NOW!" His face blanched white when he knew that I had heard what he had done. I held out my hand to receive the tape, and he took one of the five audio tapes he held in one hand and gave it to me.
I then discovered that this same man could have made a video of the ceremony because there was an upper level overlooking the room where the ceremony was done, and I recognized my classroom when I was up there looking through the overlooking window. I pointed this out to another female teacher.
I then went into another room on the first level to change back into my street clothes. There was a pass-through window and my music teacher from high school was standing on the other side of it. (I note here that he played the trumpet in a band and was pretty famous in our home town. He also led a marching band and was the drum major for it. Perhaps he was the man in the cape in the ceremony.) I touched his shoulder so he knew I was standing there, and thanked him for standing up for me. He smiled in acknowledgement, but then when I was changing clothes, he tried to watch, so I had to hide so he wouldn't see me without my outer garments on.
In the classroom, I had worn a heavy woolen suit with a jacket and skirt, the color which was like stone tan/beige. That was not suitable for street wear. One could say it was like a professional uniform of the school.
NOTE: Who is the man in the red cape?
|We found this page after I had the dream:
"According to this theory, the magical name of Jesus was composed of the same Four Hebrew letters as Tetragrammaton, but with one letter added in the middle, the Hebrew letter Shin...The Fivefold Name, 'IHShWH', which can be rendered into English as 'Yeheshuah,' was held by the Christian kabbalists of the Renaissance to have deprived Tetragrammaton of all its power, even as Jesus Christ had supplanted the jealous God of the Hebrews (which he didn't) and the Gospels had displaced the Old Testament (which they havn't).
This view was first explicitly set forth by Giovanni Pico della Mirandola (1463-94) in his seminal seventy-two Conclusions on the kabbalah, published in 1486. In the fourteenth conclusion, he argued that the insertion of the shin into Tetragrammaton represents the descent of the fiery holy Spirit into the fourfold realm of matter--the incarnation of God in human flesh. Pico held that the addition of the Sh made the previously ineffable IHWH pronounceable.
This premise was defended by the first great non-Jewish kabbalist Johannes Reuchlin (1455-1522) in his highly influential work De Verbo Merifico (On the Wonder Working Word)...and his later work De Arte Cabalistica (On the Science of the Kabbalah)...Reuchlin held that with the birth of Jesus, the name of the Four letters had been rendered powerless, its abilities to cause miracles having passed into the name Jesus. This is why in the Gospels the name of Jesus has such force in casting out demons...and healing the sick. By using the holy tongue, Hebrew, and the numerical methods of the kabbalah, Reuchlin maintained that the truthes of Christian doctrine could be proved and, more than this, that all occult secrets could be laid bare...
Hence Christ saith, 'whatsoever you shall ask the Father in my name, he will give you;' and after his resurrection saith, 'In my name they shall cast out devils'...so that the name of Four letters is no longer necessary, the whole virtue thereof being translated into the name Jesus...Neither is there any other (as Peter saith) under heaven given unto men, by which they may be saved." Tetragrammaton, pp. 47-49.
1-1-2000 - DREAM - This was a lucid dream though I don't know how lucid compared to others. I had a box like a game boy and the number 72 was coming down and I was lining them up starting at the top, all the way across and then filling the rows from the top ... down. There were 18 rows of boxes across and 4 rows of boxes down.
1-1-00 - This almost seems like cheating. :-) I was working on a page about this number before I went to sleep. DREAM - I was working on a page about the number 72, so I went to sleep and dreamed about the dreams I've had about the number 72. duh! There were 5 of them. I opened up the files and read the dreams. One of them was actually about the number 72,000. My dream told me that this base-10 harmonic meant the same thing.
1-3-00 - VISION - I was laying in bed because I had gotten suddenly tired while working on my new web page about the number 72.
I heard Joe walk by in the livingroom. I immediately saw "THE NUMBER 72", and then saw a soldier wearing an ugly khaki green uniform, get down on one knee and shoot someone else with a machine gun.
The color green uniform of the solider was the same color green which was the color walls of the garage of the school from my dream earlier today.
Dreams of January, 2000
1-3-00 - DREAM - The house I was living in had an old white haired man living upstairs. He did his best to keep the people separated into separate blue and white boxes over the number 72.
Much of the interpretation and mystical practices of the oral Torah are related to the Name of God. The Tetragrammaton or Schem Hamphorasch refers to what Kabbalists and many Orthodox Jews call the Ineffable Name. The four-lettered name of God in Hebrew is, "yod, he, vau, he", or in English capitals YHVH, although some occult sources say it's IHVH. Others also state that the YHVH is "yood, hey, vood, hey." According to various writings, the true ancient pronunciation is now unknown since it has been believed that the Name was too sacred to be written or pronounced by the profane. For that reason, the term 'Adonai' was substituted in "sacred" writings and is also why Hebrew Roots and Messianic adherents write God as "G-d."
We read in Exodus 33:19 and then 34:5-6:
And the Lord descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord. And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth.
And in the New Testament: Philippians 2:10 -11
"That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
Quoting various sources, Nesta Webster states that the 'real' Name of God was hidden from the people for the reasons stated above.
"....The Tetragrammaton might only be uttered once a year on the Day of Atonement by the High Priest in the Holy of Holies amid the sound of trumpets and cymbals, which prevented the people from hearing it. It is said that in consequence of the people thus refraining from its utterance, the true pronunciation of the name was at last lost. The Jews further believed that the Tetragrammaton was possessed by unbounded powers. "He who pronounces it shakes heaven and earth and inspires the very angels with astonishment and terror."2. "The Ineffable Name thus conferred miraculous gifts; it was engraved on the rod of Moses and enabled him to perform wonders, just as, according to the Toledut Yeshu, it conferred the same powers on Christ..."
From other information, we know that the sages, who promoted this belief, were mystics, many of whom also believed the entire Torah was the Name of God. Through gematria permutations and other practices, "72 names of God" could also be discovered. The Divine or Ineffable Name is believed to be known only by those adepts who qualify for that secret initiation and knowledge and these are believed to become endowed with "magical powers" by uttering or writing the Name. According to the Toledot Yeshu and similar writings, the miracles of Christ are a reflection of His possession of this same "mastery" over the Name, no different than any other "adept."
The Ineffable Name of God in Hebrew, being read Cabalistically, included within itself the male and female principle, the generative and prolific energy of creation. The Tetragrammaton is supposed to denote the hermaphroditic essence of Jehovah as containing within himself the male and female principle.
In Kabbalah and Jewish Mysticism, we learn of legends in the Talmud and Zohar about rabbis who uttered or wrote the Tetragrammaton and thereby "created an artificial man." There are also Talmudic and Kabbalist stories of rabbis creating animals for food and other such legends by use of the "Name".
"The Talmud and other sources ascribe supernatural activities to many great rabbis. Some rabbis pronounced a name of G-d and ascended into heaven to consult with the G-d and the angels on issues of great public concern. One scholar is said to have created an artificial man [Golem] by reciting various names of G-d. Much later stories tell of a rabbi who created a man out of clay and brought it to life by putting in its mouth a piece of paper with a name of G-d on it. However, this area of Kabbalah is known by very few, and practiced by even fewer."
Many sources claim that these "golem" did not have a real soul because it would be unacceptable to create what only God is able to do. These acts were considered permissible and are not considered to be the same as those involved in Black magic, although no explanation is given as to the difference. Some suggest it simply showed the adept's ability to be close to God's wisdom and creative ability. These sages are considered to be holy men and above reproach. Others state that these 'creations' were a form of initiation and proved the adepts knowledge of the Name and other issues.
While many created the "golem" from the earth, others were able to produce the "creature" by "influx of the alphabet"--out of thin air. Many stories recount that the "golem" was made to "work" or accompany the adept, although few "golem" are reported to have the ability of "speech".
The 'golem' is sometimes regarded as a mute worker who was able to follow commands. According to Scholem it was this parallel in Jewish golem and alchemy that finally led to Paracelsus' idea of the "homunculus." These wax or clay figures were employed in back magic to inflict injury on enemies. Behind the preoccupation of modern science with cloning human embryos lies the Kabbalistic art of alchemy for eugenics purposes.
Practical Kabbalah - Talisman's and Masters of the Name
Shem ha-Mephoresh: a Hebrew phrase meaning "the Seventy-two-fold Name of God," said to be an extension of the Tetragrammaton. A divine name of 216 letters derived from three verses in the Biblical book of Exodus (Exodus 14:19-21). One of the systems of temurah is used on these verses to obtain 72 names of God, which are each assigned to one of the 72 quinances (sets of five degrees) of the Zodiac. The names of 72 angels are formed by adding the suffixes "yah" or "el" to the 72God-names.

2012-DEC-22: The Mayan calendar has many divisions of time: months of 20 days, years of 360 days, katun of 7200 days and a baktun of 144,000 days, and a long cycle of 5,125 years.Their calendar started on 3114-AUG-13 BCE with the birth of Venus. They expected the world to last for exactly 13 baktun cycles. They anticipated the end of the world near the Winter Solstice of 2012. (3)
99 Holy Names of God
The 72 Alphabets, or "the seventy-two praises", connect with the 72 lettered Name of Cod in the Hebrew tradition, the Shemhamphorash. This was contained in the three verses of Exodus XIV : 19, 20, and 21, each containing 72 letters in Hebrew, which when written down using the Kabbalistic system of boustrophedon, gives 72 Names of God. Interestingly enough the text of Exodus XIV, 21 describes Moses stretching out his hand over the Red Sea and parting the waters, which is referred to in the text of the Virga Aurea.
The Virga Aurea - Seventy-two magical and other related alphabets
In between the Ultimate God, the lesser gods, and human beings are groups of beings with great powers and abilities which for millennia we have called 'angels', and indeed there are angels who have never been in human bodies, but there is another group of beings who have been called angels who have gone back and forth between the human world both in and out of human bodies. In this age of enlightenment and awareness, we now call them 'aliens'. These aliens have been called "The Watchers", and "Elohim", the creator 'gods' who were the Annunakis from Sumerian texts and the "Nephilim" which were the giants told about in the Book of Genesis which are half human and half 'gods'. In Biblical texts we see the title of "Elohim' which is a plural term for the creator god which appears over 2,500 times in the Old Testament. They created the world through the will of Yahweh.
Even beginning Bible students see these verses in the Bible and question them.
Genesis 1:26-27- "And God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea , and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. (27) So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."
How could the words 'us', and 'our' mean anything else than plural. If god is plural, that means there is more than one. Since belief in God is that of a creator of all that is, how could God create man in his image? Does God look like us? If we believe that God is the Elohim or the Watchers, he certainly does. Mankind has always believed that God looked like us and that man could talk directly to God and the angels. If the Elohim looked like us, who is Yahweh through whose will they worked? There is obviously a greater God who created the Creator Gods.
Yahweh, also called YHWH (Yod Hey Vod Hey) is one of the 72 sacred names of God, one of the Elohim present in the Garden of Eden. He speaks to them in a real physical voice. And they answer in real physical voices. In Genesis 2:16, God commanded Adam, "Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:; (17) but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." In Genesis 3 the serpent makes an appearance, which the Bible tells us is a symbol of Satan, but is really another creator God. See: Revelation of the True Satan. The Bible tells us in Chapter 3:1- Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God made. And he said unto the woman, "Yea, hath God said, 'Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?" (2) And the woman said unto the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden; (3) But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hat said, "Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die." (4) And the serpent said unto the woman, "Ye shall not surely die; (5) For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." Thereby Eve ate of the tree in the midst of the garden and gave some to Adam also because it tasted good and they became as gods just as the serpent had said. They immediately knew they were naked and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves aprons. They heard God walking in the garden and he called to them, (9) "Adam, Where art thou?" God questioned Adam and Eve why they were hiding, and how they knew they were naked, and asked them who told them they were naked. Eve, of course, blamed the serpent, and God immediately cursed the serpent and told him he would henceforth crawl on his belly and told Eve she would henceforth desire her husband, be subject onto her husband and bare her children in pain. In verse 22, God speaks to the other creator Gods, "And the Lord God said, 'Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil; and now, lest he put forth is hand, and take also of the tree of life and eat, and live forever; (23) Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken."
Yahweh was not a happy God. In Number 21:14, it references the book of the Wars of the Lord, which is missing from the Old Testament. Joshua 10:13 refers to the book of Jashar which is missing from the Old Testament. Both the book of Enoch and the book of Jashar are now available from many libraries and theological book stores, and I recommend them highly.
Sixty-twelve is considered as harmful in the apocryphal books of the Old Testament that speak about the 72 dead (Will of Abraham) and of the 72 sicknesses (Life of Adam and Eve).
The 72 disciples sent by Jesus. (Lk 10,1)
The 70 ancients accompanying Moses that received an outpouring of the spirit, plus the 2 absent ones which had remained in the camp, Eldad and Medad. (Nb 11,25-26)
The 72 races resulting from Noah. They are enumerated in chapter 10 of the Genesis. There are fifteen descendants by Japhet, thirty by Cham, twenty-seven by Sem. The list is arbitrary since the descendants of Peleg are not taken into account, and that the fathers are counted at the same time that their sons.
The 72 languages confused to the Tower of Babel.
In several mystical revelations, it is often question of the twelve Apostles and 72 Disciples of the last times, which will teach, preach and cure and this, in all the parts of the world on all the continents.
The Important 5040 Cycle
Now then, we come to "a very difficult point," as some of our friends are always saying! The ancients in my judgment knew of the planets Uranus and Neptune, but they did not include them in their astronomical works. We Theosophists know why. It would be extremely interesting, but it would take me a week to explain this why. I will merely add that all these astronomical ages -which is what these Hindu yugas are -- all these astronomical cycles and key-figures, are based on the calculated key-numbers of Jupiter and Saturn, 12 and 30, as factors. Yet a very interesting fact comes forth. How many Jupiter-years does the planet Uranus contain? I mean, one year of Uranus comprehends or includes how many Jupiter-years? 7, practically exactly. How many Jupiter-years does the planet Neptune contain, in other words one Neptune-year? 14 Jupiter-years. If you are following these thoughts carefully, the conviction will grow upon you that the periodic times of all the planets are time-connected, connected by time-periods; and my own conviction is, although I never have had time to work this thing out, that some Theosophical mathematical 'sharp' could go ahead and even find that the planets Uranus and Neptune would be included in still larger time-cycles.
One of the most important cycles mentioned even by Plato in his Dialog called The Laws is 5040 years. This figure is remarkable for several features, amongst which is that it is divisible by 58 different divisors among which are the key-numbers I have been speaking of this evening, to wit 5, 6, 12, 30, 60, and of course 36, 72, and 360; but what is noteworthy about this cycle of 5040 is that it is likewise divisible by 7, giving us the quotient 720 -- in which we see the key-number 72 again, x 10.
Furthermore, this figure of 5040 is arrived at by multiplying by each other the simple arithmetical series of the first seven digits taken in order, to wit: 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x 7 = 5040. This remarkable number or cycle, so specifically mentioned by Plato in another connexion, was of course known to the ancient astronomers, astrologers, and mathematicians; and by using this figure or cycle, we find that the year-period of every planet, whether the 7 sacred planets known to the ancients, or those including the others supposedly unknown to the ancients, to wit, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, used as a divisor will divide into 5040 without remainder. In other words, 5040 is a cycle which contains the planetary years of all the planets in the solar system, and thus links them up through having as one of its factors the number 7 -- a most interesting fact, and one worthy of study.
Dawns and Twilights
But notice how the Earth-year divided into days is enmeshed again with the other planetary cycles: Jupiter-year 12 of our years, Saturn-year 30 of our years. 30 x 12 is 360. Marvelous that the number of days in our year is exactly the same as the Saturn-year and the Jupiter-year multiplied by each other. You know in the Jewish Bible there is a passage saying: "The days of our years are threescore years and ten" -- 70. Well, actually this is an Oriental way -- Jews were Orientals -- of using a round figure for 72. You know how they make 72 out of 60, which is 5 Jupiter-years and two Saturn-years? What is 1/10 of 60? 6. Put down 6 for the Dawn, another 1/10 for the Twilight: 6 + 60 + 6 = 72. In the same way you will see in the Table that there is a Dawn and a Twilight for every cosmic period; and the dawn and the twilight are in all cases of relative equal length, and in all cases are 1/10 of the cycle period. 1/10 of 4000 is 400 -- the Dawn; 1/10 of 4000 is 400 -- the Twilight. In the Treta-Yuga there are 3000 Divine Years, please, not our Solar years: 1/10 of 3000 is 300 -- the Dawn; 1/10 of 3000 is 300 -- the Twilight. The next is Dwapara-Yuga. It is 2000 Divine Years; 1/10 of that is 200; 1/10 of 2000 again is 200 -- the Twilight. And so for the last of the yugas, the Kali-Yuga, 1000 Divine Years in length; 1/10 of it, 100 the Dawn; another 1/10 -- 100, the Twilight. A shorter way, of course, is to take 2/10 or 1/5 to find the combined length of the Dawn and Twilight.
Yugas in Divine and Solar Years
Dawn = 400 divine years -- 144,000 solar years
Krita-Yuga = 4000 d.y. -- 1,440,000 solar years
Twilight = 400 d.y. -- 144,000 solar years
Total = 4800 d.y. -- 1,728,000 solar years
Dawn = 300 d.y. -- 108,000 solar years
Treta-Yuga = 3000 d.y. -- 1,080,000 solar years
Twilight = 300 d.y. -- 108,000 solar years
Total = 3600 d.y. -- 1,296,000 solar years
Dawn = 200 -- 72,000 solar years
Dwapara-Yuga = 2000 d.y. -- 720,000 solar years
Twilight = 200 d.y. -- 72,000 solar years
Total = 2400 d.y. -- 864,000 solar years
Dawn = 100 d.y. -- 36,000 solar years
Kali-Yuga = 1000 d.y. -- 360,000 solar years
Twilight = 100 d.y. -- 36,000 solar years
Total = 1200 d.y. -- 432,000 solar years
Total Divine Years = 12,000; Total Solar Years 4,320,000
THE MAYAN CALENDAR
The Mesoamericans used sequences of additive numbers in their astronomical calculations, as is apparent in their five-part Long Count dating system, composed as follows. (Because 20 and 13 are involved, the great cycle can also be expressed as 7200 tzolkin, so that the great cycle begins and ends on the same name day, 4-Ahau, also called Four Flower.)
1 uinal = 20 days
1 tun = 18 uinal = 360 days
1 katun = 20 tuns = 7200 days
1 baktun = 20 katuns = 144,000 days
1 great cycle = 13 baktuns = 1,872,000 days (about 5125 years)
Note the use of the term "sequences of additive numbers," rather than "multiples." There is a subtle difference here that may assist us in getting into a Mesoamerican "headset." Multiplication is really a special form of addition. "There is no evidence showing that the Maya ever used their notation for multiplying numbers, or even that they ever multiplied two numbers, with or without their notation." Many important numbers of astronomical significance can be created from additive functions. For example, if you add the numbers one through twenty-seven, you get 378, the synodic period of Saturn (in days). Adding one through 39 equals 780, the synodic period of Mars. As we have seen, adding the numbers one through thirteen gives 91, the number of days in a season.
Other Interesting Factors
Now a further interesting thing about this 72: a human being is a child of the Universe, and being its child, its laws are his. Its life is his. Its pulsations are his. The rhythmic periods in Nature must therefore work through man. One of the greatest rhythmic pulsations in man is the pulse-beat. Do you know what the average pulse-beat for a human being is? 72. 72 beats of the human pulse every minute, or if you like, it is 60 pulse-beats plus the increment of beginning plus the increment of lapsing into the next pulse-beat. 60 plus 12; 5 x 12 + 12. You see how these numbers recur? 72 is twice 36. Well, now you remember 360 there, and 36 is 6 x 6. You notice how the numbers thus keep coming, whatever you do. 6 goes 12 times into 72 human pulse-beats in a minute. 6 x 12 is 72.
Here is a very interesting factor. In enumerating the years of the different planets I intentionally did not speak of the Moon, for your minds are so enwrapped with the astronomical teachings of the West in which the Moon is not considered a true planet, that I did not want to confuse you. Yet so thoroughly does Nature work throughout, after the same laws, the same rhythms, the same principles, the same pulsing, that do you realize that what the astronomers call the minor Saros, that is the eclipse-cycles, the cycle of years in which the eclipses begin again and repeat themselves nearly as they were before, is 18 years and some 10 or 11 days? We can here drop the days. 18 years: 6 x 3, 12 plus 6, ½ of 36. I want to call your attention to these key-figures, which keep coming to the fore. Furthermore, this is not all. Do you know how many is the average number of eclipses in this minor Saros of 18 years -- Solar eclipses and the eclipses of the moon? The average number is 72.
The Divine Year and the Yugas
I want to call your attention to the Table again: a Divine year is the name given according to this system of archaic calculating of time-periods to 360 of our years or Solar years. Therefore 12,000 Divine years in Solar years are 4,320,000. Made up thus: the Krita-Yuga of 4000 Divine years -- 1,440,000 Solar years, with the Dawn and Twilight thereof -- a Krita-Yuga is 1,728,000, (and isn't 1728 the cube of 12?). The Treta-Yuga is 3000 Divine years. Multiply this by 360 to turn it into our ordinary Solar years, and you get 1,080,000 years. Add on the 2110, the Dawn and Twilight, and you get 1,296,000 years.
Here in the Table you get this series of 144, (the square of 12). Isn't it in Revelation of the Christian New Testament that it is said that the sealed unto the Lord, or the saved, shall be 144,000 in number? You see here again the mystical figure, 144, that is the main point. You can add and take off ciphers according to the time-period or cycle you are discussing. It is the head of the series of figures that is important -- 144. The square of 12, twice 72, 4 x 36, and so forth. So we go down to the Dwapara-Yuga: turn it into Solar Years, with a Dawn and a Twilight, and you have 864,000; then Kali-Yuga, the age we are in now called the Iron Age, adding to it its 2/10 for Dawn and Twilight, you have 432,000 years. This system, or mathematical calculation of adding an opening and a closing of every age-period or cycle which the Hindus call the Dawn and Twilight, is an extremely archaic method of calculating based on Nature herself, for she always introduces everything she does with a preparatory period, whether of time or phenomena, or both, or whatever you may be dealing with. All diseases come with the Dawn of preparation. Then there is the disease. Then there is the Twilight of the disease as it fades out. So to get the full time-period of the cycle you must know not only the length of the cycle itself, but its Dawn and its Twilight, its beginning and its end.
The Key-Number 72
With reference to the key-number 72, which itself of course is a cycle of varying length depending upon the ciphers added to it, the following series contains cycles, every item of which on the list is important and well worthy of study by those interested in chronological or cyclical matters: 72 x 10 = 720; 720 x 2 = 1440; 720 x 3 = 2160 -- an extremely important cycle this because entering into the computations of the precessional cycle mentioned above, for there are 12 such cycles of 2160 in the Precessional Cycle of 25,920.
720 x 4 = 2880; 720 x 5 = 3600 -- a cycle well known to historians and chronologers as the famous Babylonian Saros, which again multiplied by 100 or 102 equals the racial cycle mentioned above of 360,000.
720 x 6 = 4320 -- again a most famous cyclical key-number, well known in ancient Hindusthan and in Babylonia and in the esoteric or occult schools of virtually all Asia and ancient Europe, a cycle which with zeros added is an even more important human racial cycle than is the 360,000 above mentioned.
720 x 7 = 5040 -- another extremely useful, interesting, and important cyclical period, with or without extra ciphers to define shorter or longer periods, and mentioned even by Plato in his Laws, as already stated.
The ancient initiate-astrologer-astronomers rarely failed in their prophecies, for it was a relatively perfect knowledge of the interrelations of planetary movements and of other cosmic time-periods, both great and small, which enabled them to predict with an accuracy of Nature herself events which they knew would take place because of their knowledge of what had taken place in other preceding cycles of time; and all cycles are repetitive, bringing more or less the same train of events or sequences as happened before, when these cycles begin anew. It should be noted that this is in no sense fatalism; for every cycle, although repeating itself constantly in time, due to what modern astronomy calls the irregularities in planetary and other celestial movements, is never precisely or exactly what the preceding cycle was; for every such cycle beginning anew its course always differs in less or greater degree from its former courses.
