Is This How Sacred Symbols Are Born?

THE CODE ZONE: Reality Outside The Box
(No.6) A Weekly Column By Gary Val Tenuta

You've just entered a realm somewhere outside the bounds of conventional wisdom... a world of words and ideas... a place where reality can shift at any given tnemom. See what I mean? Welcome to... The CodeZone.

This week's installment asks the question: "Is This How Sacred Symbols Are Born? "

Throughout history humans have graced their perceptions of "reality" with graphic symbols representing all kinds of concepts. Many of these symbols represent spiritual or religious ideas. The Ankh, the Cross, the Star of David, the Hebrew Tree Of Life, are a few of the symbols many of us are at least somewhat familiar with. How do these symbols develop? I haven't looked into that question in regard to specific symbols but a recent series of synchronistic events gave me some idea of how, in some cases, such symbolic forms might have come about. It began one night after reading an email from a research associate, Joe Mason (of the Code Gang, ).

Suffice to say that particular email was part of a thread of several previous emails to and from various members of the Code Gang. This burst of previous correspondences entailed a mind boggling collage of ideas, discoveries, and speculations all related to things like "The Code", DNA, Fibonacci number sequence, Qabalah, the Tree Of Life, and much more, all seemingly somehow interconnected by the mystery of numbers and letters. This information had been transpiring in a flurry over a period of a week or two and suddenly it all came swirling into my mind at once. That's when it hit me.

The idea flashed into my mind that we (the Code Gang) were developing a new gematria from several perspectives: Carl Munck's rediscovery of "the Code of the Ancients", Michael Morton's brilliant extensions of that work, Jimi Furia's musical concepts related to the Code, Joe Mason's Dream/Synch/Cropcircle contributions, my alphanumerics work, and other bits and pieces that come floating in from other sources such as Marko Rodin.

We've been relating a lot of the results to traditional Greek and Hebrew gematria and Kabalah and well we should because the connections are there. But it seemed clear that something else was developing here. Could we call it a new Kabalah? Of course whatever it is has been in the process of developing for a long time. Blavatsky, Crowley, Greenfield, and others whom I'm sure I've never even heard of, were setting the wheels in motion long ago. But as I thought about this it seemed as if we were continuing that process and discovering new elements, new pieces to the puzzle. And, thinking of the Kabalah, it occurred to me maybe the traditional Tree Of Life has been waiting for a companion. I knew the traditional Kabalists would string me up for sure, but what was I to do? The image shown here, came to me in a single flash of inspiration and I couldn't ignore it. I was going to call it the Tree Of Transition but the words, THE CODE TREE popped into my head and I liked it. Besides, the alphanumeric value of the phrase "THE CODE TREE" equals 108, a good gematrian number (THE SPIRAL=108, GEOMETRY=108 and, if you saw the previous installment of the CodeZone you'll recall how significant the number 108 is to the goddess pentagram at Rennes Le Chateau). The Code Tree, it turns out, encompasses one whole heck of a lot of really curious "coincidences" relating to this notion of an encoded reality. It's too much to go into here but the following is a very brief explanation of some of its elements.

The Code Tree is based on the number 9 which is the foundation of my work in cryptonumerology. The path by which the numbers flow from bottom to top just happened to create a central "trunk" comprised of the numbers 3, 6, and 9. This seemed very synchronistic since one of the email correspondences mentioned above was about a recent discovery by a researcher named Marko Rodin (Marco Rodin's Toroid Sunflower Map (doubling+3, 9, 6, etc. gap sequence). It has to do with the method of "cross-adding" multidigit numbers, such as 34 for example, to reduce them to a single digit. In the case of our example we see 34 reduces to 7 by adding the 3 to the 4. Rodin showed that a repeating pattern of numbers is derived by the method in the cross addition of the powers of two (1, 2, 4, 8, etc.). The repeating pattern is:

1, 2, 4, 8, 7, 5 (If you didn't follow this, each number in this series is twice the number just before it. The 7 comes from 8+8=16, then cross-adding the two digits of the number 16: 1+6=7. The 5 comes from 7+7=14, then 1+4=5)

Notice that the numbers 3, 6, and 9 are missing. The missing numbers are thought to be a "gap space" pattern, related to the torus spiral, the shape of which, I'm told, is governed by the Fibonacci sequence. It also happens that in my discovery of the patterns within our alphabet ( eufo/gematria.html ), these alphabet patterns produce the exact same series, 1, 2, 4, 8, 7, 5, except that they are in alpha-form (ONE, TWO, FOUR, EIGHT, SEVEN, FIVE) and with the exact same 3-6-9 gap spacing. That is to say, the "alpha-numbers" THREE, SIX, and NINE are missing. Can this possibly be mere coincidence? The odds would be astronomical! In my opinion, this is a glaring piece of evidence which strongly suggests some sort of a strange relationship between numbers and our English alphabet. The further implication of this is that if, indeed, our "reality" has been infused with "information" by means of some sort of encryption process, then the English alphabet may be part of a cipher mechanism for decoding that information. Since the CodeZone is a place where we are free to speculate as far beyond the boundaries of conventional wisdom as we desire, I would offer the analogy of our "reality" as being something akin to an incredibly advanced computer game. Those of you familiar with computer games such as Myst or Riven, for example, will understand what I'm getting at. These games are loaded with hidden information programed into them. One could wander throughout the entire virtual world in these games and be completely oblivious to the fact that hundreds of bits of information (clues that will help the player solve the game) are hidden within the program. The movie, Matrix, approached this idea. However, I think Matrix was more intent on action, violence and special effects than it was on intellectual content. A far better and more intellectually provocative movie on the same theme is The Thirteenth Floor. It's out on video and I highly recommend it for some truly thought provoking ideas. (Of course I'm a bit biased since the movie is essentially based on an idea I had about five years ago; an idea my ladyfriend found so disturbing she actually didn't want to think about it!)

But let's get back to the Code Tree. The numbers outside the circles are the reduced sums of the alphaforms of the number inside the circle. For example, ONE=34=7.

Here's something else of interest: In the series of what I call "alpha-numbers" (i.e., the word forms or "alphaforms" of the numerical digits), "ONE" thru "NINE" there are only three of the alpha-numbers which reduce to 6. They are: FOUR(60), FIVE(42), and NINE(42). Here is the entire series with the reduced value in parentheses:

ONE=34 (7)

TWO=58 (4)

THREE=56 (2)

FOUR=60 (6)

FIVE=42 (6)

SIX=52 (7)

SEVEN=65 (2)

EIGHT=49 (4)

NINE=42 (6)

So, in the entire series, these three alpha-numbers (FOUR, FIVE, and NINE) give us the notorious 666. Interestingly, the multi-digit values (60, 42, and 42) total up to 144 which is the alphanumeric value of the phrase "THE GOD OF ISRAEL". As you can see, the 459 presents itself as a triangle on the Code Tree (It's interesting, from a synchronicity standpoint, to keep in mind that I didn't "plan" any of this. It just "happened".) The numbers 4, 5, and 9 have some other correlations when their order is changed to 549. Check out the alphanumeric value (ANV) of this phrase:


Also, as shown on my web site, the full set of alpha-numbers (i.e., ONE thru NINE) fall into three groups according to the number of letters in the word:

Group-1 (3-letters): ONE-TWO-SIX

Group-2 (4-letters): FOUR-FIVE-NINE

Group-3 (5-letters): THREE-SEVEN-EIGHT

I noticed the 666 was encoded in Group-2 as FOUR-FIVE-NINE. And, as noted above, FOUR(60) + FIVE(42) + NINE(42) = 144 = THE GOD OF ISRAEL. So I thought if the antichrist (or negative attribute) is represented in this 1-through-9 number series, then it would seem likely that the opposite, or the "positive attribute" would be represented also. But, unlike the negative attribute in which we are given the number to look for as an identifier (i.e., 666), we don't necessarily have a specific number to look for as an identifier for the positive attribute. So what was I to do? Well, I thought, there are only three groups in the series so let's see what we find. I decided to try Group-1 first just because its the 3-letter group and 3 represents the three-in-one God concept. Seemed like a likely shot. Interestingly, here's what we find:

ONE(34) + TWO(58) + SIX(52) = 144

the same as

FOUR(60) + FIVE(42) + NINE(42) = 144

So, Group-1 and Group-2 might be seen as representing the two sides (or the dual nature) of the one God, Jehovah. Interestingly, the ANV of JEHOVAH is 69, the Yin/Yang sign symbolizing the concept of opposites-in-one or "dual nature".

Also there is this, based on NINE=42: If we add 9 to 42 and then add 9 to that answer and repeat the process three times to get 666 from the reduced values, we end up with 69=JEHOVAH. Here's how it works:



60+9=69(6) = JEHOVAH

And speaking of dual nature, note the following:



This is because JESUS and LUCIFER share the same ANV (74), again symbolic of the dual nature of the one spiritual entity.


JEHOVAH(69) + SPIRIT(73) + JESUS(74) = 216

same as:

JEHOVAH(69) + SPIRIT(73) + LUCIFER(74) = 216 (216 is also considered a significant gematrian number, not to mention my discovery that the equivalent alpha-numbers, TWO + ONE + SIX = 144. In addition to this, according to Carl Munck's earth grid matrix of the ancients, the precise Grid Latitude of Stonehenge is 21600, a base ten harmonic of 216.)

Looking at the reduced ANVs of the three groups (or, the entire series of ONE thru NINE), notice there are five numbers missing: 1, 3, 5, 8, 9. 1+3+5+8+9 = 26; the number of letters in our alphabet and also the ANV of GOD which is 26.

And 26 comes up again when the Group identification numbers (i.e., 1 and 2 and 3) are multiplied by the number of letters in each alpha-number assigned to that Group and then the results added together:

Group-1 x 3(letters) = 3
Group-2 x 4(letters) = 8
Group-3 x 5(letters) = 15
3 + 8 + 15 = 26

Continuing on now... On my web page, I've presented a long excerpt from my book, The Secret Of Nine, describing my concept of the number 9 being a symbol for the idea of "transition". There you will see this idea as it relates to the merging of two levels of the traditional kabalah Tree Of Life, to form what's known as a "Jacob's Ladder", where the sepheroth number 9 merges into "the abyss". On our Code Tree, the idea of transition is also present. You'll notice the Tree begins at the bottom with "0". (This is because, in the system I've been working with, there is essentially no "10", since 10 is just 1 again, starting off a new series of 1 thru 9. This idea is the key behind the whole concept of the eternal spiral. I won't bother to launch into a full explanation here, but it is pretty well explained on my web site.) The Code Tree reaches it's peak at number 9. But the whole idea here is that there is no beginning or end. So one tree connects with another at the zero point. This establishes a continuous growth in either direction. For convenience, I have only shown two Trees connected but you can see how another could connect at the bottom of the Tree shown in black and at the top of the Tree in blue ad infinitum. Now here's where the alphanumeric element of the transition comes in. Where the Trees connect, the sepheroth numbers, on the diagonal (following the yellow brick road!) are 198. This is the alphanumeric sum of THE RESURRECTION; definitely a form of transition! Also, it is the sum of THE GOLDEN MEAN SPIRAL.

One last thing before we take a break until next week. I noticed what strikes me as one amazing "coincidence". As some of you may know, the sum of the numbers 1 thru 9 is 45, which, you'll notice, reduces to 9. But here's the amazing "coincidence": The reduced sums of the alpha-numbers ONE thru NINE also equal 45! What are the odds of that? And again, this reflects the 4-5-9 idea, in that 4+5=9. Is this more evidence that some sort of encoding mechanism has been infused into our alphabet? And if so, who did it, how was it done, and why?

Next week, we'll continue on this "sacred symbol" theme as I lay out a second sequence of synchronicities which not only reshaped the Code Tree but which also spawned the birth of yet another very intriguing symbol involving Rennes Le Chateau and the Birth Of Horus. Call it the "New Yin Yang" or "The Symbol of Unity". If you're intrigued with what you've seen here, you won't want to miss next week's CodeZone (No. 7).
