22 is the number of compactified dimensions of space predicted by bosonic string theory. Expressed in terms of the integers 1, 2, 3 & 4 symbolized by
the four rows of the tetractys:
22 = 1^4 + 2^3 + 3^2 + 4^1.
Superstrings have 10 (=1+2+3+4) space-time dimensions and so bosonic string theory predicts the existence of 16 higher dimensions, where 16 = 4^2.
22 is the number of Paths in the Tree of Life (Otz Chiim). They consist of (16+6) Paths, where the six Paths are edges of the tetrahedron with
Netzach, Hod, Yesod & Malkuth as its vertices. The number 6 refers to the six compactified dimensions predicted by superstring theory.
10 is the 4th triangular number and 16 is the 4th square number. 22 is the 4th pentagonal number (notice that the order is 4 each time. The reason for
this is that a fundamental "Tetrad Principle" governs basic parameters of the physics of space-time.
22 is part of the mathematical description of reality as represented in the blueprint of the Tree of Life, whose 16 triangles have 10 corners and 22
sides. More details can be found
