I read this book awhile ago.
i especially found interesting his mention of kabbalah and its significant of being teh gematria of 137.
As the author explains, 137 is the DNA of an atom - the value of the difference between the two spectral lines.
This AMAZINGLY parallels the Hebrew word kabbalah, which means 'recieved'. Archetypally, it means any transference between two realities, the
spiritual and the physical. It also symbolizes the overall reality that everuything is mirrored; this world being the physical manifestation of the
spiritual world (or as Jung and paulie would call it, the world of archetypes).
Thus, the 2 spectral lines symbolize the spiritual and the physical. And the number which differentiates them the concept which in kabbalah actually
unifies the two realities.....
He also made mention of the incredible fact that kabbalah (recieved) is the sum of Naviah (prophecy or clairvoyance) and Hokmah (wisdom) both
essential aspects to recieving (kabbalah) Divine direction.
I also noted that at the end he mentioned that reality is governed by 26 fundamental constants. This is also pretty amazing, because teh gematria of
the tetragramaton (aswell as the God) is 26. The Kabbalists have always referred to this name as the 'essential' name, which all reality patterns
itself after. Funny that physical reality so far established is maintained through 26 streams or physical constants..... Mirroring yet again
beautifully the spiritual mechanics as explained through kabbalah.
Rabbi Isaac Ginsburgh has also noted that the gematria of Elohim, 86, which conceptually represents the archetype of 'contraction' and restriction
of divine light, is mirrored physically by the 86 naturally occuring metals in the peridoic table. We can assure ourselves that no more will be
discovered, since the last element discovered was in 1947. As for the symbolic association. There are 4 physical kingdoms which parallel the 4 letters
in the tetragrammaton as well as the 4 kabbalistic worlds (and you could further connect this to Jungs 4 functions which in itself is a
reinterpretation of the kabbalistic 4 worlds). They are Human, Animal, Vegetable, and Inanimate which inthemselves correspond to the functions of
speech (man) thought (animal) emotion (vegetable) and action (inanimate). Suffice to say the conceptual correlations are quite mystical. Anywho, the
lowest kingdom, inanimate, symbolies the most contrraction revelation of divine life, and therefore, the name Elohim is most present in this kingdo -
- which means its quite startling to discover that metals, which demonstrate such a protractec form of life, appear in 86 different varities -
paralleling the divine name Elohim and its archetypal nature. Metal is therefore the physical manifestation of this eternal principle.
