A MATHEMATICAL JOURNEY INTO THE NUMBER 666
4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 = 30
1 + 3 + 6 + 9 + 11 = 30...(Matthew 20:1-16).
WHEREAS THE NUMBER 30 REPRESENTS THE MATHEMATICAL SUM OF THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST ON THE LIMBS OF THE COSMIC TREE (Luke 3:23), AND WHEREAS THE NUMBER 6 REPRESENTS THE NATURAL WORLD, AND THE MIND OF THE NATURAL MAN, AND THE NUMBER 7 REPRESENTS THE MIND COMING TO SPIRITUAL PERFECTION...
...SO SOLVING FOR X (THE NUMBER 666), IS:
The name Solomon is derived from the Hebrew word Shalom, meaning peace, but has then been translated in the King James version as an alchemical amalgam of sol (sun), and omon (moon).
Alchemy, as it emerged in the Middle Ages, had its origins in the Hermetic sciences that stemmed from the esoteric wisdom of ancient Egypt.The ancient Egyptian name for their land was Kemet, from which we get the words chemistry and alchemy. The esoteric Judaic tradition seen in the Kabbalah is also thought to have derived some of its concepts from Egyptian beliefs....
Where also our Lord was crucified...(Revelation 11:8).
In alchemy the sun and the moon expressed archetypal principles, which, when united, symbolised the harmonious relationship between the masculine and feminine elements.
Gold in alchemy, represents the purified spirit and is also traditionally associated with the sun. The year, of course, relates to the solar cycle, so there is a suggestion in the Biblical quote from Kings of a link between the number 666 and the sun.
And the weight of the gold that came to Solomon in ONE YEAR was Six Hundred Threescore and Six talents of gold...(1 Kings 8:14).
Coincidentally, the first six Roman numerals written in their correct descending order (DCLXVI) represent 666:
While the number 666 could be an allusion to the Roman authorities, who were responsible for the crucifixion (and to the Roman religion in particular, which has been responsible for the death of millions of true believers throughout the centuries), the number is much more expansive and reveals much more than that. It is on its own symbolic journey to the Western ends of the earth, and to the words at Revelation 13:18.
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 = 36
The magic square of the sun has the curious property that if all the numbers between 1 and 36 are added together the total is 666.
The number 666 also emerged in another context- through the number symbolism of magic squares. As John Michell pointed out in his book View Over Atlantis the magic square of the sun contains all the numbers from 1 to 36 and is laid out as follows:
Total number of figures = 36
Sum of each row and long diagonals = 111
Sum of numbers of perimeter = 370
The factors of 666 are 2 x 3 x 3 x 37 or 18 x 37. The number 37 has the unusual properties that many of its multiples have repeated digits:...Of its factors, the numbers 111 and 370 are woven into the magic square of the sun and the number 18 (18 x 37 = 666) may also have been seen as significant because this number is the sum of 6 + 6 + 6.
THE NAME JESUS IN GREEK (888).
Jesus: The Sun behind the sun...The number of the physical world is Six, the number of the spiritual world is Eight. 600 is the number of Cosmos, (The word K O S M O S in Greek adds up to the number 600), while 800 is the number of the Lord (K Y R I O S) of the Cosmos. Similarly the number of Jesus, 888, the Spiritual Sun, is contrasted with the number 666, that of the physical sun. (Please see the chapter on the Name of Jesus).
In geometry, it is the figure of the Cube which unites the number Six and Eight. That is because the Cube has six sides and eight corners. (Thus it is just a slight shift in consciousness between the mind of Antichrist and the mind of Christ).
God created the world in Six days and rested on the Seventh, which was a Saturday. Christ rose from the dead on a Sunday which, for the early Christians became the Eighth day, symbolizing the new, spiritual creation and the regeneration of time. (By now we should be able to immediately associate this number with the sefira named Majesty, or Hod, on the Tree of Life). The number 8, the ogdoad, symbolizes the new order, and Jesus, 888, was known as the Ogdoad to the early Christian gnostics.
In the illustration on the left (above) a Cube is shown in isometric projection. Six rays emanate from a Seventh, inner point...Viewed from another perspective on the right, we can see that there is more to the other arrangement than meets the eye. Here the Seventh hidden ray is revealed, as is the Eighth point, the hidden Spiritual Sun from which all things flow..
According to the gnostics, most people are asleep and do not realize that there exists a higher, spiritual reality; it is though they see the illustration on the Left, take it at face value, and assume there is nothing more. Through the faculty of gnosis, however, it is possible for the higher reason (logos) to discern the existence of a more inclusive reality--the Sun behind the sun.
The literal-minded, like the proponents of materialism, see the world through the one diagram and see no further; literalism reads the letter of the law but does not grasp its spirit; materialism holds matter to be the only reality, but does not see that it is merely the effects of a higher cause. Those with the spark of gnosis, however, catch an occasional glimpse of the higher pattern--the Universal Logos, the intelligent pattern of order and harmony which informs all existence. Jesus Christ, Sun of God, by David Fideler, p.270.
SYMBOLISM OF THE NUMBER 37
For Pythagoras and Plato 37 was a holy number, and maybe they got it from Egypt.
In the Pythagorean triangle with sideunits 3, 4 and 5, the angle from the bottom up to the top is 37 degrees. The side in the triangle with 5 units is symbolizing the "path of return", it is rising up from the bottom of the triangle and back to the source from where everything came out in existence. So 37 is pointing the way back to The Father and the Source.
Jesus, with the greek gematrian value 888, is 37 x 24. Christ =1480 = 37 x 40, and so on. There is a lot of 37 both in the Old and the New testament.
37 is also like a "cosmic key", causing the existence to move on from level to level:
37 x 3 (1+1+1) = 111
37 x 6 (2+2+2) = 222
37 x 9 (3+3+3) = 333
37 x 12(4+4+4) = 444
37 x 15(5+5+5) = 555
37 x 18(6+6+6) = 666
37 x 21(7+7+7) = 777
37 x 24(8+8+ = 888
37 x 27(9+9+9) = 999
So Man is developing from 666 (= "the Beast", the physical/emotional/mental body and earthly existence), through 777 (completion and also greek gematrian value for cross/stauros), and 888 (transcendence and greek gematrian value for Jesus), up to the Father, the spiritual fullness and heaven in 999. This happens through the work of 37.
37 has also several other meanings, for instance a hexagon can consist of 36 + 1 = 37 units. The unit in the centre of the hexagon is number 37 and symbolizes the spiritual seed or Higher Self/ Christ Consciousness, surrounded by 36 other units (1+2+3+4+...36 = 666 = the physical world).
if you take any number with three digits and permutate it, then add all of them you get the sum which is always a multiple of 37. Example with 486:
108 x 37
The various sets of relationships inherent in the number 666 emanate from the numbers 6, 7 and 8.
In that day we shall raise against him (the antichrists) Seven Shepherds and Eight Principle Men...(Micah 5:5).
