Via GrahamHancock.com Marty Leeds has a new article available now.
Greetings readers. My name is Marty Leeds and I am the author of three books, Pi & The English Alphabet Volume 1, Volume 2 and the recently released The Peacock’s Tales – The Alchemical Writings of Claudia Pavonis. I have uncovered a mathematical cipher hidden beneath the English Alphabet that is based on religious and secret society symbols and methodologies (a deconstruction we will explore in this article). I have an ongoing lecture series discussing symbolism, mythology, numerology, gematria and sacred geometry on my sites www.martyleeds33.com and www.youtube.com/martyleeds33 showing the myriad ways in which we can utilize this numeric cryptogram. The following article is an excerpt from my book The Peacock’s Tales – The Alchemical Writings of Claudia Pavonis. Thank you in advanced for your time and consideration.
Gematria is the art of assigning numbers to letters to reveal deeper meanings and significance to words. The art of gematria has been used since antiquity and was a quintessential science employed in the writing of many ancient holy books. The Greeks, the Kabbalists, the Hindis along with many other cultures all mastered this ancient art. Without intuiting and understanding the symbolism and geometry of the letters within an alphabet, as well as the numbers attached to them, a true discernment of the meanings behind these ancient mystical books could not be grasped. The phrase “read between the lines” is a direct reference to this ancient art. Gematria is a “scientific art” that, when mastered, allowed one a deep look into the mystical and magical construction of our universe and the universe within man himself. By merging mathematics and language, gematria immerses one into the language and thoughts of the universal creator. It allows one a glimpse at the blueprints of the Grand Architect.
The primordial language spoken of in the Holy Bible (before the fall of the Tower of Babel and the infamous “Confusion of Tongues”) is a reference to a language that has been shared by all civilizations, in all epochs of time. It is a language that simultaneously transcends and yet interpenetrates all dialects and all cultural expressions, a language that the universe herself speaks and one that expounds its glory on your two hands. It is the language of mathematics. Without a firm understanding of basic mathematics and geometry, one cannot possibly comprehend the universe as a whole. The banner above the Platonic schools read “Let None Ignorant of Geometry Enter Here.” The root word of ignorant is ignore. The ancient Grecians understood that if one was ignorant of geometry and mathematics, one was essentially ignorant about all things. Pythagoras, one of the most revered mathematicians of all recorded history famously exclaimed “All is number.” Angles, arcs, ratios and geometries are all around us, in every corner of our world – every flower, every tree, every sunrise and sunset, every wave of sound bellowed from our mouths and every tick-tock of the clock works its magic through the laws, principles and essences of number. To ignore the fact that number rules all is to ignore the ingenious construction and glory of the world that we have inherited. There is an intelligent force, a great mystery, a great spirit within nature and that intelligence is speaking to us through the magic of number.
The universe cannot be read until we have learnt the language and become familiar with the characters in which it is written. It is written in mathematical language, and the letters are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures, without which means it is humanly impossible to comprehend a single word.” - Galileo Galilei
“From the mind of God comes number. From number comes geometry. From geometry comes symbol. From symbol comes the letter and the letter comes from out our mouths. So tell me again, on whose behalf are we speaking?” - Claudia Pavonis
Numerology, the study of the occult significance of numbers, is a science, much like astrology, that is completely dismissed by contemporary, corporeal science. Numerology lies at the heart of gematria and, in the opinion of this author, without understanding numerology one cannot possibly intuit the beauty and utter simplicity of mathematics. Mathematics is not merely quantitative but qualitative as well. Numbers are not cold, dead, dry arbitrary accidents of cosmic chaos but the language and the lifeblood of the creative force behind creation. Numbers, as understood by the Greeks and Egyptians, are cosmological principles whose essences play out and are revealed to us in the material world. Numbers contain within them an inherent message – each number has a story to tell, and each of these stories pertains to the magnificence of the creation of our cosmos. But no matter how many stories are told, no matter how many infinite numbers unfold to weave the manifested matrix of all material creation, all divisions will ultimately lead back to the one philosophy that lies behind every true science and spirituality that has graced this blessed Earth and that is the incontrovertible fact that ALL IS ONE.
The crux of numerology is the idea of breaking down any number to the digits of 1 – 9. This property has a bevy of names: Digital Root, Kabbalistic Reduction, Pythagorean Addition, Theosophical Addition, and Decimal Parity. Example: the number 361 can be reduced down to “One” by simply adding 3 + 6 + 1 = 10 and 1 + 0 = 1. Therefore the quality or essence of the number 361 equals 1. Breaking down any number from 1 – 9, with zero, or the placeholder, gives us a total of ten numbers / digits to work with. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. No matter how large or complex the number, it can ultimately be reduced down to the numbers 1-9. These 9 numbers were celebrated by the Greeks and Egyptians in the Ennead and recognized in the 9 angels of the Christian Angelic Hierarchy. These 9 gods / angels were archetypal principles that regulated and ruled the cosmos through the laws of number. This methodology has been disregarded by contemporary mathematicians whose collective view has an almost deranged focus on material existence. The modern scientific method invariably sees any ancient practice, albeit numerology, astrology or divination as archaic, speculative and interpretative pseudo-sciences. Deviating from the current understanding of physics and mathematics is often considered blasphemous. Anything that does not follow theoretical physicists’ current story of universal construction is disregarded and often ridiculed – and this is where I believe science and mathematics has lost its way. Numerology shows us that the universe is much simpler, more magical, more crafty and in the firm beliefs of this author, unquestionably intelligent than we currently tend to believe. Numerology points us to the axiological philosophy that the universe is constructed using ten basic principles. Ten has long been considered a number of completion to the ancients. Ten qualities weave their magic into the fabric of space time – ten numbers unfold in numinous ways, complexifying, constructing and destructing, building and dissolving, casting and remolding the eternal presence and present of the immediate experience – the eternal WOW that is happening right NOW. Ten numbers that lead to universal scales so infinitely big and minutely small that to ponder on them boggles the mind. The numbers 1 – 9 and the holiness of the zero lead us to the Tree of Knowledge within the garden of true wisdom. These 10 digits may help us recognize a universal truth within our creation – that no matter how many branches and leaves and roots there are on the tree of life, they all converge at the trunk as ONE to form ONE ecosystem and ONE home for its inhabitants. These ten numbers, expressed on your two hands, come together to form you, ONE human being who is at ONE with all of creation. No matter how many ONES you have, they are always ONE.
