Gematria, Language of the Illuminatus
We have seen that Pi is the "Omnific Word" as used by Western Occult Systems. Specifically, the first 32 decimal digits of Pi.
So what is Gematria? It is the willful encrypting of a word fused to a mathematical value in order to provide the word with an encoded significance. This definition is a radical departure from profane discussions on this subject, but the definition is far more accurate and clear. Furthermore, the "encoded significance" is further comprised of two primary encoded realities: words that have an absolute truth encoded into them, and words that are encoded to reveal "esoteric significances".
An "absolute truth" may still be compound in nature, meaning that the word has an "esoteric significance" even as it encodes a literal truth. An "absolute truth", often will be set against some astronomical calculation, or some mathematical constant. This principle is set forth in "The Beginning of Masonry, page 24",
If the ultimate and all sustaining secret of Freemasonry may be openly expressed in a few words, it will be these:
The entire course of nature is manifested in cycles. Some of these are scientifically real, others are but appearances based on the presence and position of the observor upon the Earth, away from which they have no true existence. For instance, there is no night except as we are temporarily on the shadow side of our globe during its diurnal rotation. There is this movement of the Earth upon its axis; there is the annual revolution that we term the year; and there is the stupendous cycle called the precession of the equinoxes, which requires nearly 26,000 years for its accomplishment. There are relative velocities and courses of the planets, the axial revolution of the sun, their angles of inclination, the atomic weights of metals, the phenomena of light, color, crystallization, and gravitation. When the results are expressed in their simplest forms, the latter prove to be some rudimentary geometrical figures that supply the structure of crystals, and all blend together into the marvelous triangle (pythagorean theorem or "golden triangle") that caused old Pythagoras to cry "Eureka!" when the beauties burst upon him."
