The Story of Light

Eliyahu Rips

13 July 2007

 

This series of Torah Code tableaux involves findings of several researchers. However, comparing the tableaux, we see unifying logic in the whole series.

 

The starting point is the phrase יהי אור (Let there be light) [Genesis 1:3]. Dr. Alexander Rotenberg searched for a meeting of an ELS for this phrase with its appearance in the plain text. He obtained the following tableau:

 

Fig.1

 

The extension of the ELS for יהי אור contains the words ביום (in the day) and למאור (for a luminary):

 

Fig. 2

 

On Fig.3 we see the additional ELSs appearing on this tableau.

 

Fig. 3

 

There are two parallel ELSs for ויהי (and there was [light]), one with skip 120 and the other with skip 240. We see two more instances of echoing: למאור with skips 1 and 120; ביום with skip 3 and 120. The ELS בבקר with skip 240 and בקר with skip 1 provide an example of partial echoing. We highlighted by yellow the beginning of verse Gen.1:3 ("And God said, Let there be light: and there was light") telling about the creation of the original light, and Gen.1:15 speaking about the luminaries of the Fourth Day. About the relation between these two acts of creation see Talmud, Chagiga 12A. Actually, the one-column encoding יהי אור and למאור (let there be light – for a luminary) also hints to such a relation.

 

Professor R. M. Haralick discovered another Torah Code tableau that mirrors this one:

 

Fig. 4

 

On this tableau, we see the same axis key words יהי אור (let there be light) with skip 45, ויהי (and there was) with skips 45 and 1 (3 times), מאור (luminary) with skip 3, אור (light) with skip 2, and ביום (in the day), בבקר (in the morning), and ויאמר (and He said) all with skip 1. These key words repeat the key words on Fig. 3, and this is why we call it a mirror tableau. However, there is one noteworthy difference: in the previous tableau, the plain text contained the phrase ויאמר אלהי"ם (and God said), while here ה' (Hashem) appears with skip 45.  Using every key word from the first table, and measuring them to the new axis (via the axis-based protocol), yields a p-level near 1:8,000. This takes into account the fact that the axis is the 16th minimal in Torah; and it searches for אלהי"ם rather than ה'.  Thus, the measurement is based entirely on the full set of key words as they appear on pages 114 and 115 of Dr. Rotenberg’s book.  The measurement excludes prefix letters in the original find and in all competing monkey texts; and it does not give credit for the many repetitions within the table.

It is interesting to notice that the ELS יהי אור (let there be light) with skip 45 has a close meeting with an ELS יהי אור (let there be light) with skip 61 (see Fig.5). So, this pair, like the pair on Fig.1 gives us a pointer in the sense of Dr. Rotenberg. The notion of the pointer means that at the place of the meeting of two (or more) certain related ELSs we expect more related encoded information. We will return to this idea recurrently.

 

Now we return to the connection between the original Light of the First Day and the light from the luminaries of the Fourth Day. It was the idea of Nachum Bombach, following [one opinion in] Chazal in Chagiga 12A, to consider the expression אור מאור (light from light). The following tableau (Fig. 6) is a pointer formed by the best meeting of the ELSs for this expression, one with skip 4 (the second minimum), and the other with skip 2063.

 

Fig. 6

 

Our next step is to look for appearances of האור (the light) parallel to these ELSs. We obtain the following picture (see Fig. 7):

 

Fig. 7

 

Now, when we look at the extensions, something extremely interesting happens:

 

Fig. 8

 

As shown on Fig. 8, האור (the light) with skip 2063 has the extension מהאלהי"ם (from God) giving the expression האור מהאלהי"ם (the light from God). The expression האור מאור (the light from light) with skip 4 has the extension גלי (waves) giving the expression גלי האור מאור (waves of the light from light)! [Needless to say, the concept that light is in fact electro-magnetic waves of an electro-magnetic field, or waves of any kind at all, is a modern physical concept.] We also marked the minimal skips for ברא (created) and בורא (creates).

 

Using the key word discovered in the first extension above, we find our next tableau (Fig. 9), showing the best meeting between ELSs for האלהי"ם (God) with skip 24 (the 4th minimum) and אור מאור (light from light) with skip 2 (the first minimum). We see a new extension יצר (created [formed]) giving the expression האלהי"ם יצר (God created [formed]) together with האור מאור (the light from light).

 

Art Levitt found that if one takes the expression גלי אור (waves of light) instead of גלי האור (waves of the light) and the passive form נוצרו (were created [formed]) instead of the active form יצר, we obtain a close 1 dimensional meeting of the minimal skips for both expressions (see Fig. 10). The 1D measure yields 1:1,100 for such close proximity, using 10 expected ELSs in the entire Torah for each key word. Art Levitt also found that precisely the same key words have a one-column encoding (Fig. 11). The analytical estimate for the latter find is approximately 1:1,200, recently verified with a Monte Carlo run, using the one-column protocol.

The tableaux on Fig. 10 and Fig.11 provide another instance of mirror encodings.

 

Since ELSs for אור מאור, fist and second minimums, were found in the above tables, Nachum Bombach looked for the same expression with higher skips.  He found the fourth minimum in following tableau (Fig.12), with a remarkable extension ה' (Hashem), yielding the extended phrase אור מאור ה' (light from the Light of Hashem). Also noteworthy is the passive form נברא (was created). Directly below this, a minimal skip 2 for אור (light) gave the expression מאור העלום (from the hidden light).

 

Fig. 12

 

Here is yet another finding by Nachum Bombach (Fig.13): a close meeting of the minimal skips for ה' גנז (Hashem hid) and האור (the light).

 

Fig. 13

 

Prof. R. M. Haralick found the following remarkable tableau (Fig. 14). It shows the 1D cluster formed by the minimal skips of האור (the light) and גנוז (is hidden).

 

Fig. 14

The next tableau is a development of the previous one. It includes also the key words לעולם and הבא (for the World to Come).

 

Fig. 15

This hidden Light will be revealed again for the righteous in the World to Come.
