2.4.21 Origin of Masonic Numerology, Kabbalah, Child Trafficking, Evolution, and Time Travel Overview

Details of Yahweh's fabricated Masonic stories mostly became clear.
However, the origin of Masonic or Kabbalistic Numerology and Kabbalistic Tree of Life, and the doctrine of Kabbalah (in addition, implementation of child trafficking, the fabricated Theory of Evolution and the fairy tale of Time Travel) are unclear.
Practical reasons and Biblical basis of them should be clarified.

Consequently, Kabbalah and Gamatria (Masonic Numerology) were practically introduced by J-Rods to confuse the Bible and to raise distrust of Roman Catholicism in the fabricated stories. Child Trafficking (Human Trafficking) would be practically introduced to raise distrust of Roman Catholicism in the fabricated stories. Aside from that, numerology was practically introduced to suggest the connection between J-Rods and Freemasonry.
(As mentioned before, practical reason of the introduction of the fabricated Theory of Evolution and the fairy tale of Time Travel would be to to examine ability of humans on the Earth, though.) Details Biblical Basis for Kabbalah, Numerology, Child Trafficking, and Others

Kabbalah and numerology (and secondarily child abduction and human trafficking as described in Haiti Earthquake and Pizzagate) have an important place in the fabricated stories. Then, the question becomes whether there is any indication in the Bible of the introduction of Kabbalah and numerology (or child abduction and human trafficking).
One possible answer is Revelation 18, which relates to the fall of the Whore of Babylon the Great (the USA and Freemasonry). Revelation 18 is a prophecy concerning the fall of the Whore of Babylon the Great and as mentioned above, the Whore of Babylon the Great could mean the USA and Freemasonry. In Revelation 18, its merchants dealt in slaves and human trafficking and the Whore of Babylon the Great performed sorcery. (By the sorcery, all the nations were deceived.) The word "sorcery" here is in the original Greek φαρμακεία (pharmakeia), which means (1) use of medicine, drugs, and spells (2) poisoning (3) sorcery, witchcraft (4) deceptions and seductions of idolatry. Then, it can be interpreted that the USA and Freemasonry are prophesied to use spells and sorcery and deal in slavery or human trafficking. (Spelling can be said a set of conventions that regulate the way of using writing system to represent a language in its written form.)
Child Sacrifice, the fabricated Theory of Evolution and the fairy tale of Time Travel woud also be Biblically attributed to witchcraft and deception.

Consequently, Biblical basis for Masonic Numerology, Kabbalah, Child Trafficking, Evolution, and Time Travel can be attributed to the word "sorcery," in the original Greek φαρμακεία (pharmakeia), in Revelation 18.
*"After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying,'Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.' And I heard another voice from heaven saying, 'Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, "I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow." Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her. The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, "Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come." And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men. The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all. The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, and saying, "Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! For in one hour such great riches came to nothing." Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, "What is like this great city?" They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, "Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate." Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!' Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, 'Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore. The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters shall not be heard in you anymore. No craftsman of any craft shall be found in you anymore, and the sound of a millstone shall not be heard in you anymore. The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth'" (Rev 18). Origin of Gematria and Kabbalistic Tree of Life Numerologies and Diagrams of Kabbalistic Tree of Life in History

As mentioned before, Greys (J-Rods) are particlar about "Numerology" leading to Gematria of Kabbalah (and Gothic architecture). The actors who brought Numerology (Gematria) to Freemasonry or Kabbalah would be Greys (J-Rods) in the fabricated stories. The reason why Greys are particular about Numerology and the circumstances should be clarified.

Numerology would be a belief assuming divine or mystical relationship between numerical values and other things.
Listing major Numerology systems before the Knights Templar in ascending order by time, those would be
(1) I Ching Divination System,
(2) Egyptian (simple) Numerology,
(3) Vedic (Hindu) Numerology,
(4) Chaldean (Neo Babylonian) Numerology, and
(5) Pythagorean (Greek) Numerology
as shown in the chronological table immediately before.

Comparing them, their characteristics, relevance to the Masonic Legends, and apppearance time would be as follows. On the other hand, as mentioned below, it is generally presumed that the Kabbalistic Diagram of the Tree of Life would descend from the Assyrian Diagram of the Tree of Life. Then the Assyrian Daigram of the Tree of Life is added below as a reference.

(0) Gematria (appeared around 150 CE?, and around 1200 CE?)
          Numerical Values correspond to Letters e.g. 1=א (a), 3=ג (g) 4=ד (d)
          Numerical Values are commonly added up
          Linked to the Kabbalistic Diagram of the Tree of Life consisting of nodes and crossing lines

(1) I Ching Divination System (appeared around 2500 BCE?)
          Numerical Values correspond to Concepts e.g. 1=heaven, 2=mountain stream, 3=fire          
          Associated with the Masonic Legends in reference to Fuxi (Thoth Hermes Trismegistus)

(2) Egyptian (simple) Numerology (appeared around 2500 BCE?)
          Numerical Values in some cases correspond to Concepts e.g. 7=Perfect
          Numerical Values can be added up
          Associated with the Masonic Legends in reference to Thoth Hermes Trismegistus
(3) Vedic (Hindu) Numerology (appeared around 600 BCE?)
          Numerical Values correspond to Concepts e.g. Birth Date or Name
          Numerical Values are commonly added up

(4) Chaldean (Neo Babylonian) Numerology (appeared around 600 BCE)
          Numerical Values correspond to Letters e.g. 1=a, 3=g, 4=d just similarly to Gematria
          Numerical Values are commonly added up
          Somewhat Associated with the Masonic Legends in reference to
          the Neo-Babylonian Empire's domination on Anunnakis' Sumer and the region of the United Kingdom of Israel,
          where the skulls and the record keeper stones were stored

          Assyrian Diagram of the Tree of Life (appeared around 700 BCE)
          consisting of nodes and crossing lines
(5) Pythagorean (Greek) Numerology (appeared around 500 BCE)
          Numerical Values correspond to Letters e.g. 1=a, 3=c, 4=d (in Latin alphabet)
          Numerical Values are commonly added up
Among them, higher affinity (in red) with with Gematria would be seen in (4) Chaldean (Neo Babylonian) Numerology, in addition, the Assyrian Diagram of the Tree of Life (appeared around 700 BCE), which is similar to the Kabbalistic Diagram of the Tree of Life, is found near Chaldean (Neo Babylonian) Numerology. Therefore, the origin of Numerology which Greys (J-Rods) encountered and realized the significance to spread it through the Knights Templar would be (4) Chaldean (Neo Babylonian) Numerology. ((2) Egyptian (simple) Numerology shows lower affinity, to be precise.)
In addition, the Assyrian Diagram of the Tree of Life (appeared around 700 BCE), where godlike beings (Eagle-Headed Winged Genies) are picking its fruit like pinecones, would be the origin of the Kabbalistic Diagram of the Tree of Life, while the Kabbalistic Diagram of the Tree of Life first appeared in 1516 CE. Then the origin of the significance of Numerology (and the Diagram of the Tree of Life) would be attributed to mostly through the Neo-Assyrian Empire and the Neo-Babylonian Empire. (possibly supplementally through Egypt, to be precise.)

Then, it would be possible to assume that in the fabricated stories, Greys visited there, realized the background of the ancient Israel kingdoms derived from Akhenaten's exile, significance of Numerology, significance of Diagram of the Tree of Life and its fruit like pinecones which godlike beings (Eagle-Headed Winged Genies) are picking. Greys decided to introduce Numerology and the Diagram of the Tree of Life originating from the Assyrian Diagram of the Tree of Life into the history of their ancestors, instead of Roman Catholicism.

Other than that, Eagle-Headed Winged Genies (godlike beings) picking pinecones beside the Assyrian Diagram of the Tree of Life, whose arms, legs, and other parts except for the head, are like humans. It might possibly be Eagle-people, the most evolved ruling class of Carians, of the Galactic Federation.

Just to be sure, as far as Eagle symbolism in reference to Judaism and Christianity, Ezekiel's four living creatures reportedly with wings had the face of an eagle, by the way.
*"Then I looked, and behold, a whirlwind was coming out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself; and brightness was all around it and radiating out of its midst like the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire. Also from within it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man. Each one had four faces, and each one had four wings. Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the soles of calves’ feet. They sparkled like the color of burnished bronze. The hands of a man were under their wings on their four sides; and each of the four had faces and wings. Their wings touched one another. The creatures did not turn when they went, but each one went straight forward. As for the likeness of their faces, each had the face of a man; each of the four had the face of a lion on the right side, each of the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and each of the four had the face of an eagle. Thus were their faces. Their wings stretched upward; two wings of each one touched one another, and two covered their bodies. And each one went straight forward; they went wherever the spirit wanted to go, and they did not turn when they went" (Eze 1:4-12).

Ignoring and leaving aside the description of the eagle in the book of Ezekiel, symbols of an eagle including a double-headed eagle are seen in the Neo-Assyrian Empire, then the Roman Empire, the Byzantine Empire (the Eastern Roman Empire), the Holy Roman Empire, the Russian Empire, the USA, the German Empire, Nazi Germany, and so on. Worship of eagles might be widely seen in human history. Their fundamental origin might be Eagle-people rather than Eagle-Headed Winged Genies (godlike beings) beside the Assyrian Diagram of the Tree of Life, because Eagle-people might be assumed to be a ruling class having the All-Seeing Eye.

The next question is who in this fabricated stories is supposed to have brought Chaldean Numerology and the Assyrian Diagram of the Tree of Life to the Earth from the universe, though it wouldn't be an important question. (Because Numerology is not so seen in Egypt in the fabricated stories, Chaldean (Neo Babylonian) Numerology wouldn't be attributed to Egypt.)
The candidates who brought them would be Orions, Anunnakis, Bird-people, or Eagle-people. Each candidate has a rational reason to be the actor who brought Chaldean Numerology and the Assyrian Diagram of the Tree of Life, for example, Eagle-people are quite similar to Eagle-Headed Winged Genie, Anunnakis descend from Bird-people and they would be fond of picking pinecones because evil-natured Reptilians like Pineal Grand, and Orions are responsible for spreading useful knowledge and wisdom for humans on the Earth.
Then the answer wouldn't be clearly concluded. Yet a convenient conclusion (assumption) here is Orions, because it seems that the extraterrestrials who spread useful knowledge and wisdom are only Orions in the fabricated stories. An interpretation introducing other extraterrestrials (Eagle-people or Anunnakis) spreading useful knowledge or wisdom sounds arbitrary and whimsical, in the flow of the stories.
It would be possible to assume that significance of Numerology and the Diagram of the Tree of Life associated with Bird-people from the skulls or the record keeper stones was known in the region of the Kingdom of Israel (united monarchy) (after Akhenaten's exile in the second history) and it was also known succeeded by the Neo-Assyrian Empire and the Neo-Babylonian Empire. (Supplementally, it could be possible to assume that significance of Numerology from the skulls or the record keeper stones was known in Egypt.)
Then Greys (J-Rods) would have known the significance of Numerology and the Diagram of the Tree of Life associated with Eagle-people in the fabricated stories. In addition, Greys (J-Rods) might have realized significance of Pineal Gland or preference of Reptilians as well as the significance of the Diagram of the Tree of Life in the fabricated stories.

However, the reason why Greys are particular about Numerology and explanation of the significance of Numerology are yet unclear.
It becomes clear tracing back establishing process of Kabbalah. Establishing Process of Kabbalah Kabbalah

Kabbalah would be an aggregate of hidden knowledge assumed through the Bible particularly the Pentateuch (the Five Books: Genesis, Exodus, Levitics, Numbers, and Deuteronomy).
* "Kabbalah in Wikipedia" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kabbalah
The assumptions or theories would be obtained through some ways, oral transmission, meditation, consideration, and receiving divine messages. Thinkers (Kabbalists) respectively advocate assumptions or theories that they believe. Influential assumptions or theories would be accepted as Kabbalah. Philo of Alexandria Philo's Thoughts

Philo of Alexandria (ca. 20 BCE - ca.  50 CE) was a Jewish philosopher in Alexandria, in the Roman province of Egypt. He advocated his allegorical interpretation on the Pentateuch. He assumed that the Bible is not only a religious source, but also contains philosophic truth associated with thoughts of Greek philosopers such as Plato, who contains the Pythagoreans' thoughts, and Zeno (ca. 334 BCE - ca. 262 BCE), who claimed virtue and self-control to overcome destructive emotions named Stoicism.

Stoicism was advocated by the Greek philosopher Zeno. Stoicism makes much of virtue, aims to be a clear and unbiased thinker, believes that it leads to understand the universal reason (logos), and aims to improve the individual's ethical moral well-being.
Stoicism was named after the "Stoa Poikile" (painted porch), on the north side of the Agora in Athens, where Zeno and his followers gathered to discuss their ideas.
Stoicism has a deterministic perspective that the wicked man is "like a dog tied to a cart, and compelled to go wherever it goes," in contrast, a Stoic virtue would amend his will to suit the world and remain "sick and yet happy, in peril and yet happy, dying and yet happy, in exile and happy, in disgrace and happy." Stoicism thus presumes a "completely autonomous" individual will and a universe that is "a rigidly deterministic single whole."

Concerning the Pythagoreans' thoughts, Philo figuratively showed the ten numbers of the Pythagoreans like below.
Number 1 is the number of God.
Number 2 is the number of division and death.
Number 5 represents the five senses.
Number 8 is the number of a cube studied by the Pythagoreans.
Number 10 represents perfection.

Plato and the Pythagoreans should be explained to understand Philo's commitment to numbers.

* "Philo in Wikipedia" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philo
* "Stoicism in Wikipedia" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoicism Thoughts of the Pythagoreans

Pythagoras (ca. 570 BCE - ca. 495 BCE) was an ancient Ionian Greek philosopher and the founder of Pythagoreanism in southern Italy.
He was quite talented in mathematics and geometry, obsessed with mystic harmony of mathematics and geometry, he established the first Pythagorean community responsible for studying mathematics, geometry, harmony, music, and others. His followers were called the Pythagoreans. For example, the Pythagoreans recognized the Pythagorean theorem, five regular solids, and Pythagorean music tuning.
In reference to these theorems and laws, Pythagoras thought that mystic something for example associated with numbers or geometric forms exists having nothing to do with materials (matter). He named it "Numbers" or "Forms." They believed that number rules the universe and all things were made of numbers.
*"Numbers" or "Forms" would be like theorems and laws in mathematics and physics and the origin (Big Bang) of this universe.
Specifically, for example, a triangle with side lengths in the ratio 3:4:5 is always a right triangle and leads to the equation 3 × 3 + 4 × 4 = 5 × 5 in accordance with the Pythagorean theorem. As another example, in three-dimensional space, convex polyhedrons with faces being identical in shape, size, and angles are necessarily five kinds, five regular solids, also known as Platonic solids.
These theorems would be examples of "Numbers" or "Forms."

Five Regular Solids

On the other hand, they gave meaning to numbers.
The number one (the monad) represented the origin of all things.
The number two (the dyad) represented matter.
The number three was an "ideal number" because it had a beginning, middle, and end and was the smallest number of points that could be used to define a plane triangle, which they revered as a symbol of the god Apollo.
The number four signified the four seasons and the four elements.
The number seven was also sacred because it was the number of planets and the number of strings on a lyre, and because Apollo's birthday was celebrated on the seventh day of each month.
They believed that odd numbers were masculine, that even numbers were feminine. The number five represented marriage, because it was the sum of two and three.
Ten was regarded as the "perfect number" and the Pythagoreans honored it by never gathering in groups larger than ten.
In addition, they worshipped the Tetractys, which consists of 10 points arranged in four rows, regarding as representation of space and cosmos.

* "Tetractys in Wikipedia" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetractys

Thus, they particularly made much of the ten numbers, from 1 to 10 and number 10. Then it could be interpreted that the ten numbers are the core elements of "Numbers" or "Forms" and theorems and laws in mathematics and physics of this universe such as the Pythagorean theorem and five regular solids are other "Numbers" or "Forms" derived from the ten numbers.
Besides, Pythagoras and the Pythagoreans believed that all souls are immortal, a soul is transferred into a new body and reincarnated after death including reborn as an animal. It could have been possibly derived from Orphism.
* "Orphism (Religion) in Wikipedia" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orphism_(religion)

* "Britanica Form Philosophy" https://www.britannica.com/topic/form-philosophy Thoughts of Plato

Plato (428/427 or 424/423 BCE - 348/347 BCE) was an ancient Greek philosopher.
Succeeding his teacher, Socrates, Plato claimed, in an early stage, that the soul or the desire (psyche) of humans should pursue wisdom.
Subsequently, visited southern Italy and was associated with the Pythagoreans. Learning Pythagoras' concept of Numbers or Forms, Plato realized that materials (matter) are concrete and they can be perceived (recognized) through the five senses and they would be constantly changing, in contrast, mystic something called Numbers or Forms exists, it is abstract and wouldn't be perceived (recognized) through the five senses, it would be eternally unchanging and unseen.
Then Plato authored the dialogue literature "Phaedo (On The Soul)" and "Republic," presented the Theory of Forms (or Ideas). He presumed that abstract unseen something, unlike materials (matter), eternally unchanging exists and materials (matter) in the physical world are merely constantly changing imitations.
The latter would be, in other words, the flux doctorine. Plato indicates the source of the flux doctrine: "Heraclitus, I believe, says that all things go and nothing stays, and comparing existents to the flow of a river, he says you could not step twice into the same river."
Because human senses are incomplete, human senses can't obtain (perceive) Forms or Ideas.
Plato thought that knowledge of Forms or Ideas can be recognized through recollection (Anamnesis), due to the following circumstances.
Plato believed not only the Pythagoreans' Numbers or Forms, but also the Pythagoreans' thought that souls are immortal, transferred into new bodies, reincarnated after death, and our souls existed and inhabited heaven long before our bodies ever existed. Knowledge of Forms or Ideas cannot be obtained through sensory experience because Forms or Ideas are not in the physical world. In contrast, souls in heaven can directly obtain Forms or Ideas and souls have learned them. Then, knowledge of Forms or Ideas can be recognized through recollection (Anamnesis) of the past lives.
On the other hand, Plato later authored the dialogue literature "Parmenides," which examines the Theory of Forms. In this dialogue, Plato suggests the concept of "The One" beyond Forms or Ideas.

As mentioned above, Philo's commitment to numbers is based on the Pythagoreans' belief of mystic something associated with numbers or geometric forms and homage particularly ten numbers.

However, Philo's thoughts were not so widely accepted, mostly extinguished after that. Baraita of the Thirty-Two Rules around 150 CE

The possible earliest texts of interpretation could be the Baraita of the Thirty-two Rules, by Rabbi Eliezer. It purportedly described 32 rules for interpretation of the Bible. The 29th rule purportedly contained Gematria, while detailed contents of the Baraita are unknown.
* "Baraita on the Thirty-Two Rules in Wikipedia" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baraita_on_the_Thirty-two_Rules Sefer Yetzirah

The first text of the 2 major Kabbalistic texts would be "Sefer Yetzirah (Book of Creation)," which could be completed by around 200 CE. It is possibly attributed to Rabbi Akiva. The Babylonian Talmud refers to existance of "Sefer Yetzirah," yet the book and the content were missing for a long time. Merkabah Mysticism around 200 - 700 CE

Merkabah mysticism was practiced mostly around 200 - 700 CE. Merkabah is the throne-chariot of God typically described in Eze 1:4-12 mentioned above. Merkabah mysticism is efforts to find the way to see the vision of God's throne on the chariot like Ezekiel. Thinkers tried to find the way through meditation.
* "Merkabah Mysticism in Wikipedia" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merkabah_mysticism Babylonian Talmud

The Babylonian Talmud was completed around 470 CE. The Babylonian Talmud contains the Oral Torah, Jewish essential laws, narratives and legitimate interpretations like the Five Books of Moses, yet unwritten and orally transmitted unlike the Five Books, and its explanatory notes of main Rabbis.
* "Talmud in Wikipedia" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talmud
* "Sacred Texts The Babylonian Talmud" https://www.sacred-texts.com/jud/talmud.htm Bahir

Bahir was published in Provence, southern France, in 1174 CE. Bahir is neither comprehensive nor systematic. Bahir refers significance of Hebrew letters, significance of the cantillation signs and vowel points on the letters, and significance of Sefer Yetzirah.
* "Bahir in Wikipedia" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bahir
* "Hebrew Cantillation in Wikipedia" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hebrew_cantillation Emergence of Sefer Yetzirah and Isaac the Blind An Outline of Sefer Yetzirah

"Sefer Yetzirah" somehow appeared around 1210 CE in Narbonne in southwestern France.

"Sefer Yetzirah" mostly figuratively provides interpretaion on 10 Sephirot and 22 Hebrew Alphabet. The term "Sephirot" was presented for the first time by "Sefer Yetzirah."
10 Sephirot are ideas specifically,
1: Keter: "Crown,"
2: Chokhmah: "Wisdom,"
3: Binah: "Understanding,"
4: Chesed: "Kindness,"
5: Gevurah: "Severity,"
6: Tiferet: "Beauty,"
7: Netzach: "Eternity,"
8: Hod: "Splendor,"
9: Yesod: "Foundation,"
10: Malkuth: "Kingship."
As far as Hebrew Alphabet, as mentioned before, Hebrew letters have original meaning such as א=Alef="ox head" or "strength" and ב=Bet="tent," "house," or "inside." "Sefer Yetzirah" provides additional meaning such as א=Alef="air" and ב=Bet="wisdom." Then in summary, Hebrew Alphabet and the extended meanings would be like below.

Sefer Yetzirar states like below. (Excerpts)
1.1. In two and thirty most occult and wonderful paths of wisdom did JAH the Lord of Hosts engrave his name: God of the armies of Israel, ever-living God, merciful and gracious, sublime, dwelling on high, who inhabiteth eternity. He created this universe by the three Sepharim, Number, Writing, and Speech. (*JAH = YH)
1.2. Ten are the numbers, as are the Sephiroth, and twenty-two the letters, these are the Foundation of all things. Of these letters, three are mothers, seven are double, and twelve are simple.
1.3. The ten numbers formed from nothing are the Decad: these are seen in the fingers of the hands, five on one, five on the other, and over them is the Covenant by voice spiritual, and the rite of Circumcision, corporeal (as of Abraham). (*Decad = 10)
1.10. Second, from the Spirit he made Air and formed for speech twenty-two letters, three of which are mothers, A, M, SH, seven are double, B, G, D, K, P, R, T, and twelve are single, E, V, Z, CH, H, I, L, N, S, O, Tz, Q, but the spirit is first among these. Third, Primitive Water. He also formed and designed from his Spirit, and from the void and formless made earth, even as a rampart, or standing wall, and varied its surface even as the crossing of beams. Fourth, from the Water, He designed Fire, and from it formed for himself a throne of honor, with Auphanim, Seraphim, Holy Animals, and ministering Angels, and with these he formed his dwelling, as is written in the text "Who maketh his angels spirits and his ministers a flaming fire." (Psalm civ. 4.)
2.1. The foundations are the twenty-two letters, three mothers, seven double, and twelve single letters. Three mothers, namely A, M, SH, these are Air, Water, and Fire: Mute as Water, Hissing as Fire, and Air of a spiritual type, is as the tongue of a balance standing erect between them pointing out the equilibrium which exists.
2.3. Twenty-two letters are formed by the voice, impressed on the air, and audibly uttered in five situations, in the throat, guttural sounds (ALEF CHET HEY AYIN); in the palate, palatals (GIMEL YOD KAF KOF); by the tongue, linguals (DALET TET LAMED NUN); through the teeth, dentals (ZAYIN SAMECH SHEEN RESH TZADE); and by the lips, labial sounds (BET VAV MEM PEY).
2.4. These twenty-two letters, the foundations, He arranged as on a sphere, with two hundred and thirty-one modes of entrance. If the sphere be rotated forward, good is implied, if in a retrograde manner evil is intended.
3.1. The three mother letters A, M, SH (ALEF MEM SHEEN) are the foundations of the whole; and resemble a Balance, the good in one scale, the evil in the other, and the oscillating tongue of the Balance between them.
4.1. There were formed seven double letters, Beth, Gimel, Daleth, Kaph, Pe, Resh, Tau, each has two voices, either aspirated or softened. These are the foundations of Life, Peace, Riches, Beauty or Reputation, Wisdom, Fruitfulness, and Power. These are double, because their opposites take part in life, opposed to Life is Death; to Peace, War; to Riches, Poverty; to Beauty or Reputation, Deformity or Disrepute; to Wisdom, Ignorance; to Fruitfulness, Sterility; to Power, Slavery.
5.1. The simple letters are twelve, namely: He, Vau, Zain, Heth, Teth, Yod, Lamed, Nun, Samech, Oin, Tzaddi, and Quoph; they represent the fundamental properties, eight, hearing, smell, speech, desire for food, the sexual appetite, movement, anger, mirth, thought, sleep, and work. These symbolize also twelve directions in space: northeast, southeast, the east above, the east below, the northwest, southwest, the west above, the west below, the upper south, the lower south, the upper north, the lower north. These diverge to all eternity, and an as the arms of the universe.
5.3. Three mothers, seven double and twelve simple, these are the twenty-two letters with which I H V H Tetragrammaton, that is our Lord of Hosts, exalted, and existed in the ages, whose name is Holy, created three fathers, fire and spirit and water, progressing beyond them, seven heavens with their armies of angels; and twelve limits of the universe.

* "Sefer Yetzirah pdf Download" http://www.hermetics.org/pdf/Sefer_Yetzirah_Kaplan.pdf

It should be noted that it stated
1.2. "Ten are the numbers, as are the Sephiroth,"
1.3. "The ten numbers formed from nothing are the Decad." (*Decad = 10)
In addition, the meaning of Sefirot (ספירות) is "countability." The original form of Sefirot is Sefirah (ספירה), which means "counting."
On the other hand, the concept of the Tree of Life is not seen in Sefer Yetzirah. Interpretation of Isaac the Blind

The French rabbi Isaac the Blind (1160 - 1235 CE) in Provence in southern France started to explain "Sefer Yetzirah." Isaac the Blind explained Sefer Yetzirah employing Neoplatonism.
According to Isaac the Blind, the origin of everything is the infinite endless abstract thing named Ayn Sof (Ein Sof: infinity), Ayn Sof emitted Divine Thought, and the Divine Thought emitted ten Sefirot. Materials are merely derivatives from ten Sefirot.
According to Isaac the Blind, the sacred words came from God, the words were crystallized and that was the Creation.

Neoplatonism is explained below, to be sure, while it is basically similar to Plato's thoughts. Neoplatonism

Neoplatonism was mostly advocated by the Roman Empire philosopher Plotinus (c.a. 204 - 271 CE). Getting a clue from Plato's "The One," Plotinus claimed that there is a superme totally transcendent "One." It would be like Forms. In addition, Plotinus claims that "One" emits "Nous" (intellect, thought, or reason), "Nous" yields "the World Soul," "the World Soul" yields human souls, beings, materials (matter), and others. Plotinus assumed that principles of this world or universe consist of three layered "One," "Nous," and "the World Soul."
Plotinus never mentioned Christianity in his works.
However, because the concept of "One" was similar to the concept of Yahweh, Neoplatonism was sometimes partly employed in interpretations of Judaism and Christianity.

* "Neoplatonism in Wikipedia" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neoplatonism
* "Neoplatonism and Christianity in Wikipedia" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neoplatonism_and_Christianity Thoughts of Isaac the Blind

As mentioned above, Isaac the Blind (1160 - 1235 CE) in southern France explained Sefer Yetzirah employing Neoplatonism.
According to Isaac the Blind, the origin of everything is the infinite endless abstract thing named Ayn Sof (Ein Sof: infinity), Ayn Sof emitted Divine Thought, and the Divine Thought emitted ten Sefirot. Materials are merely derivatives from ten Sefirot. The sacred words came from God, the words were crystallized and that was the Creation.

Other than that, as mentioned above, Sefer Yetzirah states
1.2. "Ten are the numbers, as are the Sephiroth,"
1.3. "The ten numbers formed from nothing are the Decad." (*Decad = 10)
In addition, the meaning of Sefirot (ספירות) is "countability." The original form of Sefirot is Sefirah (ספירה), which means "counting."

Considering Thoughts of Neoplatonism, Plato, and Pythagoreans, Sefer Yetzirah's "ten" would correspond to the Pythagoreans' "ten numbers," which could be interpreted as the core elements of "Numbers" or "Forms." In addition, Sefer Yetzirah's "ten" and the Pythagoreans' "Numbers" or "Forms" would be like Isaac's Ayn Sof and ten Sefirot would be yieled from them, while yet 22 letters of Sefer Yetzirah wouldn't be explained.

Thus, Sefer Yetzirah's homage to numbers including Sefirot would be based on theorems and laws in mathematics and physics and the origin of this universe. Materials of this universe were created through them (theorems and laws in mathematics and physics and the origin (Big Bang) of this universe).
Then, it would be, in a sense, correct that Yahweh stated that Kabbalah is legitimate and the closest to the truth. Rise of Gematria, Notarikon, and Temurah

On the other hand, Eleazar (1165 - 1230 CE) compiled Gematria around 1200 CE in Worms (in the Holy Roman Empire). Subsequently, Notarikon arose similarly in the Holy Roman Empire (present-day Germany).
Contrary to Isaac the Blind's restrictive teachings, Abraham Abulafia in Barcelona in 1270 CE claimed that Gematria, Notarikon, and Temurah are the basic methods to find the hidden meaning (Kabbalah) in the Bible.
Notarikon is the method picking out Hebrew letters from nearby Hebrew sentences, connecting the picked Hebrew letters, and presuming a word hidden in the Bible. As exemplified as a Bible code at the beginning of Genesis, picking out ת (th) from בראשית (BRAshYth), ו (W) from תהום (thHWM), ר (R) from וירא (WYRA), ה (H) from אלהים (ALHYM), then the hidden word תורה (thWRH) is presumed. (Temurah is the method replacing a Hebrew letter with another Hebrew letter, for example, using "ב" instead of "א".)

*However, there would be numerous ways of Gematria and Notarikon like over 30 ways, they would lead to numerous interpretations of a word ending in confusion or choosing selfish and convenient interpretations.

* "Torah in Wikipedia" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torah The Zohar (Sefer ha Zohar: The Book of Radiance)

The other text of the 2 major Kabbalistic texts, "Zohar," commentary on the Pentateuch written in Aramaic, appeared in Girona, present-day northeastern Spain, in 1280 CE. It was published by a Jewish writer named Moses de León (c.a. 1240 - 1305 CE). De León ascribed the work to the 2nd-century tannaitic sage in ancient Judea, Shimon bar Yochai. However, the Zohar contained Aramaic grammatical errors, some academic scholars assert that the Aramaic of the Zohar seems to be written by a non-native speaker in Aramaic and that words from Andalusi Romance and Galician-Portuguese, which were hard to be used in ancient Judea, can be found in the text. Then the author would be in reality the 13th-century Jewish writer Moses de León.
Despite the falsehood of authorship disguising the 2nd-century tannaitic sage Shimon bar Yochai's words and deeds, the Zohar was widely accepted because of its persuasive interpretation of the Pentateuch integrating Isaac the Blind's interpretation of Sefer Yezirah and Jewish theology.
In addition, Section I of the Zohar presents the concept of Sephirotic tree of knowledge of good and evil and Sephirotic tree of life in the garden of Eden. The Zohar explains some Sephiroth arranged on the trees and some Hebrew letters.

THE students of Rabbi Simeon were assembled together and sitting in silence, waiting for the master to begin his discourse. At length Rabbi Simeon spake, and said: "As a lily amongst the thorns."
This word lily, what doth it mean and symbolize? It symbolizes the congregation of Israel; and as lilies are either red or white in color, so the members of this congregation are divided into two classes, distinguished by their rigorous justice and uprightness, or by their gentleness, kindness and compassion.

*"Lily" might be translated as "Rose," after which the Rosicrucians and Rose Cross were named.


Chapter I.

"BRASHITH." "In the beginning" was En Soph, the Divine, the self-existent infinite begin, without likeness or reflection, the incomprehensible, the unknowable One, the blessed and only Potentate, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. who only hath immortality, dwelling in Light which no man can approach unto, whom no man hath seen or can see, before whom the great archangel with face beneath his wings bends in lowly reverence and adoration, crying, "Holy! Holy! Holy! who art and was and evermore shall be."
By the secret and silent action of the divine will, from this primal luminous point radiated forth the vital life-giving spark which, pervading and operating in the great, enteric ocean of forms, became the soul of the universe, the fount and origin of all mundane life and motion and terrestrial existence, and in its nature and essence and secret operation remains ineffable, incomprehensible and indefinable. It has been conceived of as the divine Logos, the Word, and called Brashith, for the same was in the beginning with God. (All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life became the light of man.)
"They that understand (the secret doctrine) shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they who turn or lead many into the might path (of knowledge) as the stars forever and ever." (Dan. xii. 3.)

*The Zohah assumes "the beginning point," the primal luminous bright point, (of this universe) and equates it with Yahweh. The beginning point (the primal luminous bright point) radiates life-giving spark which yields forms, the soul of this universe, life, and other things. The beginning point (the primal luminous bright point) was called Barashith, everything started and was created from this. Dan 12:3 states it.

**The thought identifying the world with god is called Pantheism. The thought of the Zohar would be like Pantheism. In addition, it should be remembered that Greys (Ebens) in Project Serpo exchange program similarly worship a Supreme Being supposedly like diety related to the universe. It is quite natural that belief of Greys (J-Rods) and Kabbalah are similar, because Greys (J-Rods) wouldn't believe in Roman Catholicism and Kabbalah would have been given to the descendants of Mary Magdalene by Greys (J-Rods) in the fabricated stories.
* "Pantheism in Wikipedia" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pantheism

The word zohar (brightness) designates that nekuda reshima, the central ray or point of light which was the primal manifestation of the Divine, En Soph. From it proceeded vibrations which made luminous the illimitable ether, from which was formed the universe that became the glorious temple or palace of the great Unknown. It was in a manner the holy seed or germ that gave origin and birth to the world, and is occultly referred to in the words: "The holy seed shall be the substance thereof." (Is. vi. 13.)

*The radiated things are like a palace. Seeds might be sown in the palace, germinate, and grow. The world would be like the buds grown from the seeds sown in the palace. Iza 6:13 states it.

Furthermore, for the manifestation of the glory of the divine Unknown to humanity, making use of verbal terms and letters, it has built for it the name alhim, or lord, as evidenced in the mystic sense of brashith bara alhim. "In the beginning, alhim created"; or, as it should be rendered by rushith, that is the primal zohar, the origin of all words, "God created alhim." The use of the word bara (created) need not excite surprise, for it occurs again in the words: "And he created alhim, the man, in his image." (Gen. i. 27.)

*The palace was named Elohim. Gen 1:27 (literally: And (he-is-)creating Elohim the human (adam) in image-of (him) in image-of Elohim (he-)created (him) male and female (he-)created them) should be interpreted as "God created Elohim ..." in the mystic sense because Gen 1:1 (the opening of Genesis) "In the beginning, Elohim created" should be interpreted as "God created Elohim" in the mystic sense. Then Gen 1:1 and Gen 1:27 mean "the beginning point (identical with God) created the palace."
**However, Gen 1:26 clearly states "and (he-is)saying Elohim we-shall-make human in image-of us as likeness-of us." When the mystic sense is not employed, the opening of Genesis would be interpreted as "in beginning (he-)created Elohim the heavens and the earth" (in the beginning, Elohim created the heavens and the earth) and Gen 1:27 as "And (he-is-)creating Elohim the human (adam) in image-of (him) in image-of Elohim (he-)created (him) male and female (he-)created them" (And Elohim creating the human in the image of Elohim, Elohim created male and female).
* "Scripture4all OT Gen1" https://www.scripture4all.org/OnlineInterlinear/OTpdf/gen1.pdf

This zohar, their, denotes the mysterious. One called brashith because the beginning of all things. In answer to the desire of Moses to know the name of the divine Being, it was given AHIH ASHR AHIH, "I am that or who I am." The sacred name AHIH is as a two-sided figure, whilst the name alhim is as a crown; and asher formed of the same letters as the word rash (head or crown) is a synonym of alhim and proceeds or comes forth from brashith. Whilst the primal zohar or divine ray of life was quiescent and unmanifested it was impossible for it to become known by any word or term whatsoever. But after operating in the boundless ether, the receptacle of all forms and prototypes of created things in the universe that was to be, then asher, representing the divine essence, took upon itself the form of a head or crown (rash) between the two AHIH's of the divine appellation, AHIH asher AHIH. Observe now, that the word brashith is composed of rash (crown), synonym of asher, and beth (house or palace).

*Yahweh answered his name אהיה אשר אהיה (AHYH AshR AHYH) (I Am that I Am) on Mount Sinai in Exodus. The Zohar explains that אשר (AshR) can be changed into ראש (RAsh) (head or crown), combining with בית (BYth) (house or palace), they become בראשית (BRAshYth) (in beginning), the opening word of Genesis, thus BRAshYth corresponds to God's name.

* "I Am that I Am in Wikipedia" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Am_that_I_Am

Furthermore, we read, "the river that went forth out of Eden to water the ground was parted and became into four heads" (Gen. ii. 10). These four heads or channels are symbolized on the sephirotic tree by chesed (mercy) which forms the right arm, teaching that he who desires to become wise should always turn himself to the south, the quarter presided over by Michael and his hosts, along with Judah and two other tribes of Israel, whilst he who prays for wealth should turn towards the north where is stationed Gabriel with his hosts, along with Dan and two other tribes.. The third channel is symbolized by Netzach (triumph or victory), the right limb of the sephirotic tree presided over by Nuriel with his hosts, along with Reuben and two other tribes. The left limb is Hod (splendor). It is to this sephira that, what is said of Jacob, is applied, "And he halted upon his thigh (Gen. xxxii. 31). The fourth head is presided over by Raphael and his hosts, along with Ephraim and two other tribes. The mission and work of this ruler is the healing and assuagement of the afflictions of the captivity.


As Rabbi Simeon concluded his remarks, Rabbi Eleazar, his son, spake and said: My father! I along with other students were one day discussing in the college a remarkable saying of Rabbi Akiba to his novitiates, viz., "When you come to places paved with pure white marble glittering in the sunlight, you should not say here is water, for then ye will expose yourselves to the danger expressed in the words,
Stones of white and glittering marble symbolize the pure waters that spring forth and take their origin from the fountain. Aleph (A) denotes the beginning and end or sum total of created life. The letter vav, separating the higher from the lower yod, symbolizes the tree of life, the fruit of which gives immortality. The two yods have the same meaning as in the word vayitzer (and he created) denoting the two appearances of the Divine Presence under the form of the higher and lower sephiroth called hochma (wisdom) and symbolized by the two yods or I's. This hochma is found just below the sephiroth kether (crown) and denotes the beginning and end of all things. The two yods also symbolize the two eyes of these sephiroth from which fell two tears unto the great abyss of primal matter. Why did they fall? Because of the two tables of the law which Moses brought down from on high, which the children of Israel were unable to appreciate to their advantage. They were therefore broken and destroyed. The same cause occasioned the destruction of the first and second temples, for the vav had taken flight and disappeared. Other tables of the law were then given with affirmative and negative precepts, rewards and penalties corresponding to the sephiroth on the right and left sides of the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil, from which the law as now promulgated, came forth. The sephiroth on the right side symbolize life; those on the left, death.

When these sins of idolatry, murder and adultery, cease to prevail among mankind, in that day there shall be one Lord, and his name One. On this account a man who is a true Israelite will find his unity in the secret doctrine, which is as a tree of life to them that lay hold of it, and "happy is everyone that obtaineth her" (Prov. lv. 18). This tree of life is the Matrona, symbolized by the tenth Sephira Malcuth (Kingdom).
"The Lord (IHVH) hath built Jerusalem" (Ps. cxlvii. 2). The V in the divine name IHVH is the son or child of I and H, the Father and the Mother, to whom scripture refers: "And the Lord God made of the rib which he had taken from man." This rib denotes the middle column in the sephirotic Tree of Life symbol of the virgin, of whom it is written: "For I, saith Jehovah, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her" (Zech. ii. 5).
It is for this reason that the future temple, glorified and perfected humanity, built and formed by the Holy One, will endure forever. It is of this temple that scripture speaks. The glory of this latter house shall be greater than that of the former (Hag. ii. 9), which was built by man's hands, but this shall be built by the Holy One, and is alluded to by the Psalmist: "Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it" (Ps. cxxvii. 1). The words "And the Lord God formed the rib he had taken" equally apply to Moses, who, when building the tabernacle in the wilderness, foresaw the future tabernacle God would form, as it is written: "And for the second side (rib) of the tabernacle on the north side there shall be twenty boards" (Ex. xxvi. 20). The north side here refers to the side of the sephirotic tree called Chesed (mercy), and known as the white side. "And closed up the flesh thereof." The word flesh signifies the red side of the tree which is called Geburah (power), and at this time were fulfilled the words: "His left hand is under my head and his right hand doth embrace me" (Cant. ii. 6), as also the words: "This is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh."

*Thus, the Zohar presents the concept of Sephirotic tree of knowledge of good and evil and Sephirotic tree of life in the garden of Eden. The Zohar explains some Sephiroth arranged on the trees and some Hebrew letters. Diagrams of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life Gikatilla's Gates of Light in 1516 CE

Latin translation of Joseph Gikatilla's Gates of Light was released in 1516 CE. It first depicted a diagram of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life.

*Attribution: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tree_of_life_bahir_Hebrew.svg Origin and Roles of Gematria (Numerology) and Kabbalistic Tree of Life in the Fabricated Stories

As mentioned above, the direct cause of Gematria (Numerology in Kabbalah) would be the Pythagoreans' thoughts of "Numbers" or "Forms" and the ten Numbers, which represent mystic something associated with numbers or geometric forms existing having nothing to do with materials (matter), something like theorems and laws in mathematics and physics and the origin of this universe.
*The ten Numbers might be associated with the 10-Dimensional Spacetime theory of Superstring Theory in physics, otherwise it might be the sum of the natural numbers from 1 to 4 (1+2+3+4=10) commemorating 4-Dimensional existential Spacetime.

The concept of Ten Sefiroth in Sefer Yetzirah (Book of Creation) would be introduced reflecting homage to the ten Numbers.
Kabbalistic theories or interpretations until Sefer Yetzirah or Isaac the Blind, except for Merkabah mysticism relying on meditation, would be basically convincing.

Yet further Kabbalistic theories or interpretations seem unconvincing.
For example, Gematria, Notarikon, and Temurah alleged by Abraham Abulafia are unconvincing and they brought numerous interpretations like wordplay. Inconsistent numerous interpretations of the Bible or the Pentateuch naturally result in mere confusion or selfish convenient interpretations. The Zohar would be similar. The Zohar conveniently incorrectly identified Yahweh with the origin of this universe through wordplay, supposedly because J-Rods (Greys or Ebens) wouldn't believe in Roman Catholicism, they identify the universe with god and introduced Kabbalah to the descendants of Mary Magdalene, J-Rods' ancestors.
The Zohar wouldn't explain the reason why Sefiroth are placed on the trees of the garden. The Kabbalistic Diagram of the Tree of Life is no more than a fanciful tale. Some variations of the diagrams were presented after 1516 CE, there would be no elaborate structure associated with the truth in the diagrams.

Looking back the master plan of the fabricated stories around the descendants of Mary Magdalene, it aims to induce the descendants to disbelieve the Bible and Roman Catholicism. Kabbalah arose after the Knights Templar, Kabbalah would be raised to induce distrust of the Bible and Roman Catholicism. Then, it is natural that Numerology, Gematria, Notarikon, Temurah, and interpretations after the Zohar (Sefer ha Zohar: Book of Radiance) including the Kabbalistic Diagrams of the Tree of Life induce confusion, selfish convenient interpretations, and distrust of the Bible and Roman Catholicism.
Yet it should be remembered that Numerology skillfully suggested the connection between Kabbalah, Knights Templar, and J-Rods, consequently suggesting the connection between the descendants of Mary Magdalene and J-Rods. It would be actually the true intention of Yahweh introducing Numerology and Kabbalah in the fabricated stories.
