The Logos Star - Sevenfold geometric representation of the prime Number 373

And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

Genesis 1.31

God's great work of Creation is founded upon the Number Six and its associated symbolic meanings and geometric structures. This manifests in many ways on multiple independent, yet integrated, levels. It begins with the plain text of Scripture which states that God created the Cosmos in Six Days. This then became the basis of the Fourth Commandment (Exodus 20.9f):

Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Given its centrality in both Creation and the Ten Commandments, the relation between the Number Six and Work - of both Man and God - is without doubt one of the most well established numerical teachings of Scripture.

The Biblical integration of the God's Work, the Number Six, and the Creation of the Cosmos manifests in this pair of fundamental identities:

World

Cosmos

= 600 =

Six

These identities reiterate the fundamental "sixness" of the Cosmos exhibited in the six directions that characterize three-dimensional space:

This image follows the pattern of the Chi Rho, the Monogram of Christ, the Creator, so it would appear that the Lord God Almighty has stamped His Creation with His Initials or designed His Name upon the same template as His Creation. Either way, it glorifies the Lord and gives new meaning to Psalm 19.1:

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

The divinely ordained relation between the Number Six and Creation forms the context needed to properly understand the miracle that is the text of Genesis 1.1, the Creation Holograph. I begin with the Hebrew text consisting of 7 words and 28 letters:

At the center of these seven words we see the Aleph-Tav - the Sign and Seal of the Lord God Almighty - upon which His entire Word is built. The number of letters - 28 - relates to the number of words - 7 - by being the seventh Triangular Number:

28 = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 = Sum(7)

The nth Triangular Number is represented by Sum(n) because it is a general property of Triangular Numbers that they are equal to the sum of all numbers from 1 to n.

The sum of the entire verse is also a Triangular Number - specifically, the 73rd:

Sum of Genesis 1.1 = 2701 = 37 x 73 = Sum(73)

The Numbers 37 and 73 are a palindromic pair of geometrically related primes. In general, the nth Centered Hexagonal Number is the core of the nth Star Number. Here are the first few in the series:

This means that the integration of the Work of Creation with the Number Six extends all the way down to the numeric values of the letters of the text. I am greatly indebted to Vernon Jenkins' profound research and exposition of the relation between these geometric numbers, the text of Genesis 1.1, and the Name of the Creator. A good place to start is his article called Judging By Appearances. I recomend reading all his work.

The Numbers 37-as-Hexagam and 73-as-Star result from the self-intersection of the Tenth Triangular Number, the Number 55:

The Number 55 is the value of pic (HaKol, Everything). It is the Tenth Triangular Number, Sum(10). It plays a central role in the Foundation of Creation and the HoloDec which divides into two halves that are both multiples of 55 = Sum(10), hence the sum of the Whole is also a multiple of 55. In other words, the Ten Commandments are built on the Tenth Triangle, which also is deeply integrated with the Creation Holograph!

The Numbers 37 and 73 are an extremely significant pair of primes. The essential significance (singular!) of these two prime numbers is found in this pair of identities generated by one word:

Wisdom

pic

Hokmah

37 = 8 + 11 + 13 + 5 (Ordinal Value) pic
73 = 8 + 20 + 40 + 5 (Standard Value)

These identities reveal the supernatural integration of the two fundamental Gematriot: the Ordinal Value, calculated using the place value of the letters, and the Standard Value, calculated using the Base Ten numerical weights in use since ancient times, as listed in Alphabet Table. Vernon Jenkins also notes this pair of identities in his article A Numerical View of Beginnings, where he discusses its relation to the Wisdom presented in association with the numerical analysis of words (Revelation 13.18)

The direct association of Wisdom with both prime factors of Genesis 1.1 amplifies the the teaching of Jeremiah 10.12:

He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion.

The author of the Zohar also recognized a deep relation between the Number Six, the Six Directions of the Cosmos, and the idea of Widsom (Vol. I:3b):

BERASHITH (In the beginning). Said Rabbi Yudai: 'What is the mening of Bershith? It means "with Wisdom", the Wisdom on which the world is based, and through this it introduces us to deep and recondite mysteries. In it, too, is the inscription of the six chief supernal directions. ... This is implied in the word berashith which can be analysed into bara-shith [He created six].

The relation between these figurate numbers and the Number Six, which Scripture explicitely relates to the Work of Creation and the Cosmos, is, of course, absolutely impossible to miss. This is none other than the Work of God! Both factors of the Creation Holograph are prime hexagonal Star Numbers that relate directly to the Hebrew word for Wisdom by which - according to the text of Jeremiah and ancient Hebraic Tradition - is the Wisdom by which God created the Sixfold Cosmos! Endless glory! Divine perfection! Yet we have just begun.
