In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
The centrality of the Prime Number 37 in the structure of Scripture
can not be overstated. It begins in with the Creation Holograph:
Sum of Genesis 1.1 = 2701 = 37 x 73 = Sum(73)
The Number 37 is geometrically integrated with the Number 73 - it is the Hexagonal heart of 73 as
Star, so 37 / 73 is a Hexagon / Star pair. The Number 37 is also the first
number greater than unity that can be represented as both a
Centered Hexagon and a Star:
Such numbers are extremely rare. Here is a list of the first twelve numbers that are both Centered Hexagons and
1, 37, 1261, 42841, 1455337, 49438621, 1679457781, 57052125937,

This sequence (and many others) can be viewed in the

As can be seen from the list, there are only twelve such numbers less than 7.5 x 1016, which
is less than one in ten thousand trillion. The Number 37 is the only such number less than a thousand,
and this is the Number found in the very heart of Genesis 1.1.
These Hexagon / Star pairs are deeply integrated with the fundamental words used in Scripture. Most obviously
is the palindromic pair of primes (37 / 73) which are the Ordinal and
Standard values of the fundamental Hebrew word Wisdom, by
Which God created the world (Cf. Jeremiah 10.12):
|37 = 8 + 11 + 13 + 5 (Ordinal Value)
||73 = 8 + 20 + 40 + 5 (Standard Value)
Note that the product of this gemometrically integrated pair of palindromic primes yields Genesis 1.1.
Exactly the same pattern - based now on the Hexagon/Star pair 19/37 - is found in the Hebrew word
for The Heart:
|19 = 5 + 12 + 2 (Ordinal Value)
||37 = 5 + 30 + 2 (Standard Value)
The product of these numbers also appear prominently in Genesis 1.1:
and the earth
= 703 = 19 x 37 = Sum(37)
Thus, Genesis 1.1 can be written in two different ways in terms of Triangular Numbers:
Genesis 1.1 = Sum(73) = Sum(37) + 3 x Sum(36)
Note that the separation into the sum of Triangles is implicit within the grammatical structure of the
The Number 37 also appears with exceedingly high frequency in the
of Genesis 1.1. A power set is defined
as the "set of all subsets of a set."
So the power set of Genesis 1.1 contains every possible comination of its seven words. This yields
127 = 27 - 1 elements (since we are ignoring the empty set that is counted in the
cardinality of the power set). The result is astounding. Below is the graph of the expected value, which can be
calculated exactly, and the actual values generated from Genesis 1.1. The graph displays multiples less than 83
(after which the count is near zero anyway).
Note the point corresponding to the Number 37. The numbers immediately surrounding it - 36 and 38 -
coincide precisely with the expected value of about 3.4 multiples whereas the power set contains 23
combinations that are multiples of 37.
This phenomenon was first brought to my attention by Vernon Jenkins, in his detailed analysis of Genesis 1.1 called
In the true scientific spirit, I reproduced his
analysis to verify it and found we came to exactly the same conclusion. This was, of course,
inevitable (sans error) since
we are dealing with the objective reality of the text of the Holy Bible.
