This website is dedicated to the most beautiful soul in this world, my wife and mate of 32 years, Nan Raker Deressa.  It was Nan who put me in the proper direction by pointing out something rather obvious, to her goes the all the credit. For any mistakes to be found, I am to blame.

The Tarot and the Torah

– or how the Tarot saved an ancient knowledge from extinction, and the mystery that was uncovered.

         A forward note: This material requires a great deal of background explanation and seeming tangential writing; but it will all come clear upon reading through and experiencing some of the results of this research.  And 'NO!' I am not going to tell you the Earth was created in 7 literal days and dinosaurs walked with men - I am so amazed at the load of absolute trash I find on the web and elsewhere being touted as 'truth' and 'biblical truth' at that!  But what is worse, is realizing that there are a great number of people that actually believe that tripe.  Truthfully, if I were G-d, I would have punched the RESET button on this species long ago!  Well that is one thing that you can be very thankful for, for sure!  Please read the entirety of what I present here, it may seem windy - but then these pages are nothing compared to the stacks of maps, writings and pages of text I have accumulated in the years of study I have behind me now.  To any who are interested in further information are encouraged to follow the links provided.

These pages will be undergoing a complete re-do as time permits me, the amount of new research just in the past few months demands that.  Respectfully yours; Manuel, the Scribe.

the 12th and 13th plates

The Hebrew Torah is not what it has been made out to be:

          The Hebrew Torah, that is the Five Books of Moses, have within them a tapestry of images.  These images are formed by geometries found by mirror letters; which are discerned by pairings found on each line of text arranged in matrices by a mathematical configuration of the full letter set of the Torah in its original Hebrew text.  (Please see the download section below.)   The tapestry formed is quite beyond the abilities of the people who were involved in its original transcription to have constructed within its corpus.  This owing to the fact that there are depictions of people and events that would not be known among humanity for another 3500 years on from the Torah's completion by Joshua and the Elders of Israel. 

the Chariot - looking upsd

This is sample of work from my notes.  The section begins at Exodus 03:01, the 12th word and 4th letter, it ends at Exodus 23:20 the 4th word and 6th letter. I am presently in process of redoing the photography of the matrices as noted on the page, some areas have bad matching edges, some I have found are edits waiting to be explored further.  The Chariot, The lovers (which appear in the up-side-down postition) can be clearly seen.  But note the presence of Lady Hathor (H't-Hrt in Egyptian,) and this is only one layer of interpretation graphically that can be produced from this area of text - The Star also appears in here as does Sirius (the Dog itself can be illustrated... just a big ol' pup.)  The Prince of Egypt appears as an infants head with a Mouse on top of it... innocence.  The Innocents, the First Born, suffered for the sins of the adults, seems too true in our day as well.  And the only victor - Death in the form of a crowned Crocodile at the bottom of the series.

          The Torah text and the image set that can be produced from it, introduce historical facts that have been left out of the chronologies and records by those who were involved.  Why that information was expunged or not written about is something of a mystery, until you encounter the text.  For some time we have had the few scraps of information on a people known as the Hyksos, through accounts written by the authors of historical records, these are all far removed from the time involved, and they were mainly interpreting the meager histories or oral accounts available to them.  These accounts, in other words, were recorded by un-involved parties.  But it is they who we have to provide us the records that these people existed.  Even if it is only only through umpteen hands or mouths the relations of these chronicles had passed through before, they are all we have.  It must be remembered as well, a person like Manetho was not without his Egyptian cultural conceits, (neither was Xenophon!) so let's remember history is written by people.  How the Egyptians dated their rulers reigns has left us little to go on for accuracy, except by the placement of Kings in lineage.  We have over the past 4 centuries been able to fill in many gaps along the line.  As with all cultures through history, what we have found says that those in power; write the histories.  Here a few millennia on with the knowledge we have of related events and changes in world political power structures due to climatic and geological change; we can put a more positive 'most-likely' date on the Exodus of about 1500 B.C.E..  We have the Archaeology to give us much more understanding of the Hyksos, along with the Egyptian cultural development at that period of time and their interactions.  We can at this time with some assurance add in additional research done on Santorini's Eruption corresponding to the historical time line of the Hyksos' Expulsion, which corresponds to the natural disasters that are recorded in the Exodus account.  All of this research applied to finding a rational answer to whether or not there was an Exodus of the Jews from Egypt, and corroborative evidence in archaeological studies in the Delta of Egypt can be looked at as something that helps make more complete a long out of place puzzle:  Who were the Hyksos and where did they really originate?  What happened to the Minoans who built Tel Al-Adaba and Tel El-Yehudiyah?  How did the Hyksos and a menagere of peoples become the main trading force some two hundred years later after also usurping the heavily fortified places the Minoans used as trading stations at those two Tels.  How did the Exodus really come about?  Did Santorini effect an extended climate change in the region and how many times did it erupt?  When placed in their proper chronological order these findings can be as good a proof we have that the events in the Hebrew account of the Exodus do have a rational and scientific order.  We can say that an exodus event of equal proportion did in fact happen in Egypt and the Nile Delta.  When considering the period just before or after 1500 B.C.E., we find that not only the Hyksos were driven out but all of their allies.  It is within the span of 60 some years that the main thrust out of Egypt's revolt and the Hyksos Expulsion and once out of Egypt we see the beginning of the Torah's compilation.  We can now difinitively say that the Torah can be shown to be a pastiche of tales that reflect different styles of writing and terminology, but all of them (with the exception of one parcel of text,) are contiguous in the image set they present within their specific sections.  That is to say, the image set formed is part and parcel of the pieces forming the whole.  I would like to add, that I am positive the conclusions of my research will show the image set formed in the corpus of the Torah text is original to the Torah's composition.  The images being an unconscious action during the process of the transcribing of the text.  That is to say; It was all put in unconsciously by the scribe(s), and was only discovered as I discovered it; by Mathematical process.  However if we accept this; we will then encounter an information paradox.  There are events depicted (in the image set,) that definitely are not just contemporaneous to the time of the creation of the Torah and the wandering in the Wilderness.  Nor are the events depicted only concerning mythological tales and the Exodus up to the death of Moses; there can be discerned scientific findings we only know in our day.  There are matters from our time in history, the modern day.  How did they get there?

Two theatrical masks

          This will bring a lot of questions to mind for anyone familiar with the Torah, as a Scroll or as a Codex.  (The printed book form is called a Codex.)  However we live in a time when new discoveries that rewrite our understanding of this reality are being made by the minute!  How can we not look at this as a part of that knowledge boom and quantum leap in human evolution and understanding?  Let this sink in for a second, because this will be without a doubt the most profound re-discovery about this text in the entire known history of the Hebrew Torah to date.  But like the Voynich Manuscript, which was found recently to contain formularies and recipes in patterns of images and letters and to be written in Old Turkish(!) so too the Torah will now speak in a language almost anyone can understand.  The Voynich Manuscript is a an old Turkish herbalists/doctors formulary; you just have the right set of eyes and the right knowledge to find that all out!  And another mystery bites the dust.

          So too we can look at the Torah as being something like the Voynich Manuscript in many ways.  It too can now be viewed in much the same manner - a text awaiting discovery, filled with secrets we have had no clue even existed.  The Torah is literally a box of questions awaiting to be opened.  There are 'innumerable' letter patterns that produce information in the structures of the text, however there is more for us to see in our day in the 'encoding' and all due to the passage of time.  The Torah was known to have an inner 'book', it was kept for initiates into the High Priesthood - the Intelligentsia.  Now we too must come to see and understand what is hidden within the letters of the Torah text.  It is the time we live in, along with our developed technologies that allow us a greater vista into the text.  However for the Jews, the full extent of that knowledge base of so long ago, is now erased and is now long forgotten among the Jewish People and their Scholars.  The time has passed, and the old prophet's words prove correct:  And he said,"It is a light thing that thou should be my servant to rise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel:  I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles.  That thou may be my salvation unto the end of the Earth."  Through proper scrutiny of this knowledge we will see that these words were more than true; for our world, in our day.  The Torah is and has been an unseen and truly ignored light; in a very dark world.  It is time it shone properly; it isn't some bald headed old man stomping out of the wilderness proclaiming hellfire and brimstone, it is science --  Pure science, that is; Mathematics.  You just have to be able to read the formulae correctly!  It all begins with a knowledge of mathematics, how more scientific can you get?

          My name is Manuel Colunga-Hernandez, and the Hebrew Torah has been my life project for some 21 years now.  The work has been to examine the text for what I have understood for some time, was a book of science, hidden within the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.  And by a process I can only describe as part inspired thinking, and Mystical Pathwalking, along with my relying on my knowledge of history and a substantial library that has grown considerably, I have over a period of years begun to uncover the inner book within the text of the Hebrew Torah.  The images I will show you here in these pages are amazing, true enough, but there is a whole world of information that lays just beyond that layer as well.  And that can only come by deep study and dedication to detail (a good sense of pattern recognition helps you as well.)

The Ancient of Days
            letter #4043 to #8531.

The 'Animal-like Head'
            from Rabbi Breuers Torah edit.

This is the first grid of a tapestry made by following a simple mathematical process to arrange the text bodies then map those bodies for mirror letters that in turn form geometrical structures, curves, angles and provides an image set in those geometries that spans from Genesis 3:22, to the end of Deuteronomy.  This grid runs from letter #4043 (Genesis 03:22:05:02) to #8531 (Genesis 07:13:02:03).  The grid contains 4489 spaces, depicted here in either white or black.  The black spaces are letters that match at their particular column space to either side of the center column.  Any line where the center column matches a matching pair of letters on that line is also colored in (or 'mapped'.)  The left from the Traditional Hebrew Text, showing the Great White-Haired One, who is also referred to in the Book of Concealment as the, Ancient of Days.   And on the right a mapping of the Mordechai Breuer Edit of the same text area.  (Dr. Breuer's text later became, 'The Keter Torah'.)  This configuration also occurs in Codex Leningradensis, and must thus assumed to have been also present in what was Codex Aleppo's original Torah portion.  The change in the mapping is due to the removal of two 'waw's or vav's' in this field of text, which are made up elsewhere along in the letter line.  It must be borne in mind: This image is formed by the removing from this array, two letters of text, yet another field array appears that can also be said to provide a logical, identifiable image.

          It has been known by the Jewish Sages who have sought out 'codes' and anagrams for two thousand years or more, that there is something greater waiting to be found in the Torah.  Some very brilliant minds tried to find what they thought were 'numeric' and letter patterns in the Hebrew text.  Among them were the likes of President Thomas Jefferson, our second President of the United States, who produced a Polyglot New Testament, and sought out patterns in the text of the Hebrew Bible.  Sir Isaac Newton, did a great deal of study in the Hebrew text.  Not to mention the other non-Jewish researchers who have known of legends and tales of mystical things hidden in the Bible's letters, and tried and failed to find that 'one' key.  They all had suspicions of there being 'a master plan', and some were able to find bits and pieces through the stories of the Sages.  However none of them ever approached the real key to the text and its hidden set of images.  In 1996, the phenomena of the 'Bible Codes,' as the study is popularly known, came to the general public's attention.  It was originally brought to light by the work of Rabbi Michael Ber Weismandel, A truly rememarkable person, who reinvigorated forgotten studies spoken of by ancient Rabbis.  Though the initial writing on the subject was greatly sensationalized by Michael Drosnin, a former reporter for the Washington Post, in his book "the Bible Code."  But it was a book published in 1997, by Dr. Jeffery Satinover, "Cracking the Bible Code," that inspired the author's interest in these studies (and that all thanks to his wife, finding it in the first place!).  The Bible or Torah Codes are words that are formed by skipping letters at a specific spacing in a given area of text.  Words, phrases, names, events - all encoded within the letters of the text.  Few, if any, have ever succeeded in getting so far as to be able to unlock the mathematical structure of the text or even realize it.  And those who obviously did, were people much closer to the times just after the experiences recorded in the books of the Torah.

          There are many tales told by the Sages of Hebrew reknown that there really is something to the legends passed down to the modern day, from those people of long ago.  The true meaning of the stories and the secrets they answer have been forgotten, but that was made to happen and for a specific reason: A rewriting of material within the Torah, those who did the work did not want anyone to find.  But like the old adage goes, 'G-d will always find you out!' and so it is proven true.  The rediscovery of this material is going to prove that true.  And with that said there is created a whole other set of questions, when viewed in light of the portion in the book of Daniel, in which Daniel is told to seal up the words of the book.  Is this rediscovery only the unsealing of the words that Daniel 'closed up'?

          The difference between the 'Bible Codes' schema and the work I came to do, is that instead of 2-dimensional arrays, with Equdistant Letter Spaced words, I was looking into 3-dimensional arrays that could be proven to produce 'solid' constructions - such as the Ark, or perhaps the Tabernacle or an iconic item.  What I did come to was a construction that produces an interconnected line of imagery in 2-dimensions that are contained within a series of 3 dimensional spaces.  This was all brought about by trying to calculate ways to obtain search strings in a three-dimensional cubic array of text and plot all x,y and z related strings as well.  In the beginning of this project, I was working with a 2-dimensional array, a 42 lettered verse in Genesis (Genesis 5:2 to be exact,) that came to my attention and all due to a sequence of numbers.  In the end it was by laying it out 7 letters wide and 6 lines deep, I found could derive NON-ELS patterns within the grid that made an array of terms which described terms associated with the subject of the face-on text.  I noted one of the patterns flowed in a different directon, but that made sense - it negates a curse upon the term 'Man' which is found in the row just below it; (that was what was brought to my attention at the time.)  It was experimenting with a repitition of this grid that led me to suspect a 3-dimensional world that was being overlooked, and 21 years later I can tell you; 'Yes, there definitely is.'  And that is stated without reservation.

genesis 5:2 - numerics.

genesis 5:2 - flow of pattern.

          I noticed a structure to the grids arrangement that lent itself to an idea I had struck upon: that it would be possible to derive three-dimensional structures in the text.  It was at that point Something urged me to pursue the most practical way of examining the text in 3-dimensions.  Of course it was easy enough to imagine the process;  one has to find and derive cubic arrays from the total number of letters in the text!  It was then that I knew I was onto something.  As anyone who knows any mathematics can plainly see  -  you cannot derive a whole number cube root from the number 304,805, it will come out in fractional terms.  What came to me almost immediately was to derive the largest whole cube root possible and continue the operation on the remaindered number of each operation until all complete whole cube roots that could be derived were obtained and a the remainder found.  And it was that drive that kept me pressing on to finish the entire layout.  It took me some time, and I admit it was not the easiest thing to accomplish.  I don't know how to put this any other way, than to say, "I knew they were in there to begin with." (for those that don't understand: The reason we want whole number cube roots is due to the fact that we are dealing here with text, letters - i.e. you cannot divide a 't' or 'tav' in Hebrew.)

One derivation from a
            field set.

Another derivation from a
            field set.

This construction is contained in a section that refers to Moses and Aaron.  There can also be formed an 'IB', a canopic jar used in Ancient Egypt, during embalming, that contained the heart of the deceased. The configuration also constructs a Bee, complete with gathered pollen on its hind limbs.  If you view this in a good imaging application, you will easily discern the head of the First High Priest, Aaron, Brother of Moses.  This single grid when connected with the grid above completes a panel with Moses at top, a Scribe in between, and Aaron at the bottom when the set is viewed in the upright position.  It is an illustration that compliments the verses concerning Moses being concerned about being not being able to speak to the Hebrew People,(Moses had speech impediment of some sort and it is shown in the image (the lower image) of him as well;) Exodus 4:16 "He (Aaron) will speak to the people for you.  He will be your spokesman, and you shall be his guide."  Please note: Moses is shown with 'horns' so make note: This would be a post-Sinai image of him.

          Some of the illustrations on this page are images that were known of in the very early history of the Torah.  The knowledge was lost to them due to the removal of information that would lead to a student understanding the process of using the Master Key.  The memorizing of the Torah's 'inner secrets' in early times is now only preserved in the Zohar and that only in one small portion.  Though it may seem strange, there has been a keeper of these secrets among us for some time now, and it resides in the modern Tarot.  The 'Tarot' in Old French meaning 'Wheel', was reimagined and produced by the schools of Western Ceremonial Magicks and authors who were deeply involved with the resurgence of the Spiritualist movements of the late 19th century.  The Taro(h), as I have now come to know it, is really made up of the images from the Torah, put into an easily hidden manner to carry and disguised for preservation of the knowledge contained in those specific images.  The Tarot, as a set of images on cards, must have come about in the 1100's due to the increased persecutions by the Church and other cultures that persisted for so long in Europe against the Jews.  There are historical references made by many scholars that during the early Dark Ages much of the Oral Tradition, was put to Codex form to prevent it from being lost.  In the case of the Tarot this could only be reproduced in an incomplete and broken way, the reason being that most of the teaching was by that time many generations on from the original and in a traditional form that was changed over time.  Like the Torah text itself, (which is remarkably intact,) it was subject to the ability of the keeper and the transmitter to repeat without ellision the exact words of the teachings, and if you have as a child played Chinese Telephone, you remember that it doesn't take many links to lose the complete and true message.  With this re-discovery we can find out just how accurate that transmission was.  I must say that G-d's Words in spite of mankind - have been kept close enough to the original form in some places to verify the pieced together history I have and that I illustrate to you.

          The 'Gypsies,' that is the Romany Peoples, are the ones credited with having first produced a 'fortune telling card deck'  -  The oldest extant deck of Tarot Cards is from the 1300's and was produced in Italy.  That deck is very elaborate in its imagery, however it must have had some kind of predecessor, as it is 'too finished' and stylized to not have been taken from a template.  In reading through studies by people who dedicated themselves to finding the origins of the Tarot we have today, we are consistently told that the knowledge is old and came from the Jews and Egyptians and possibly even earlier in a much more basic form.  The Torah, is not and never was meant to be just a 'religious' document.  In these years of study I have come to find that we could look at it as a 'message' to the future, from the past; as I intend to show in the materials which I present.

High Priestess - As

High Priestess - the Law

First three grids

Andromeda: the Law.

Torah on lap

To the far left is an image I photographed from my first 'rough draft' of the mapping, and from my first attempts at imaging came this portrayal:  I saw the Woman as a Judge sitting in a Stone seat of Judgment; which recalls the legend of Andromeda chained to the stone seat of sacrifice.  So too the Beit Din (a judge) must sacrifice the self for the greater good of humanity around them, relying not on their opinion but a considered set of opinions and only then by the logic granted them, decide.  Of course She is Andromeda, properly portrayed.  And Andromeda has three words that form her mouth and two lips: A-D-M, Sh-B-T, A-D-M, that is to interpret in the most simplistic of terms that She 'speaks PEACE BETWEEN MEN', which is what makes us a civilized society whoever we may be, She is the LAW.  Second from left is the image from the Rider Waite Tarot Deck of the High Priestess.  The third image is a combined photograph (digitized,) the letters appear as black or white squares in a matrix mapping the text that spans the first three grids: letter #4043 to #17509..  The fourth is a simplified sketch I did recently, in PhotoShop.  It must be remembered, Andromeda, was 'Ethiopian.'  And like Mose's wife, Saphira, an Abyssinian.  That is to say She, was a Black, Semitic, African.  There is a longstanding tradition that says the Ethiopians were related to Israel through King Menelik the First (c. 950 B.C.E.), who was the son of Solomon ben David HaMelek, and Makeda, ancient Queen of Sheba (SABA) which is considered an ancestral root of the Aethiopian People on the Arabian Peninsula, and were succeeded by the Peoples who later migrated into the Afar and the lands that are now modern day Ethiopia, Eritrea and Somalia.  However, ancient Cush, is to the South of the ancient Egyptian empire and was situated in what is termed the Nubian Kingdom.  (Note Miriam's argument against Moses wife Zippora the in the book of Numbers vs. the claim in the text that Moses went to Midian - which is situated North of what was the Sabaen Kingdom.  There is evidence of an edit in this section of the text.)  The detail picture of the High Priestess, shows the word "TORA", which is indicating she interprets the Law to Humankind; if one looks closely you can see the word 'TORH' as well, this is the anglicized transliteration of the word 'Torah' from the Hebrew.  This is related to a legend of this word in its Hebrew form ('TORH,') appearing at a specific letter spacing in all five books - which it does.  See Gerald Schroeder,"Genesis and the Big Bang."  Below is a recent redrawing using a 'connect the dots system' to follow logical curves, angles and lines.

High Priestess -

Shnaim Ochazin in the Torah

Shnaim Ochazin in the Torah

And again we can extract another image set as well.  Being She is the law, She sits as a Beit Din, as is stated in the Talmud in Bava Metzia, the first section, Shnaim Ochazin 'Two come holding': Here we see She speaks peace between men.  A-D-M, Sh-B-T, A-D-M; "Two (men) come holding a (Talit) cloth.  This one says:'It is all mine.'  And this one says,'It is all mine.'  How will the Beit Din judge this matter?  He will make each swear that not less than half the 'garment' is his.  And then divide the garment, or the value between them."  Here we see that the legal advice given is directly from the Torah's tapestry section!  That means that the origin of this section Bava Metzia is extremely old in its transmission as a legal teaching among the Jewish Beit Din (Judges of the House).  If you look carefully you can discern the possibilities of how the thought pool here can be applied: Two come holding a Talit, two come holding a divorce writ, two come holding a marriage contract, the woman is pregnant and suing for paternity.  The two figures can be male or female, it addresses the fact that the Law is that which speaks peace between human beings.  The Law is what allows society, and civilization to flourish.  And it entails the knowledge of a great many things to be a judge.  Again because of the multiple image repeats I have begun to discern in the image set, this could be another form of the Major Arcanum: The Lovers.  I also exemplify in the right side image the fact that one can sometimes find that the images can take on assymetric alignments - note the cloth or writ.

          One might ask why the Jews were always selected to be the scapegoats?  -  And to help you better understand the answer, I would refer you to a book such as, In Pursuit of the Millennium by Norman Cohn.  The book is a marvelous study of millennialist movements and witch-hunts, outlining the type of rampant hatred of Jews that was prevalent1, and the madness of people during hard times or times of disease always seeking out the minority as the problem, the scapegoat.  And as we see in our own day, Antisemitism was and is to be found commonly in Europe and the Middle East, but is now almost world-wide.  At this point I would like to add that besides the outlines of them being scapegoated, there is another reason for their being brought almost to demise:  The Torah itself.  You see the Jewish People are called and call themselves, "The People of the Book."  But the 'Book'is not the 'Bible', it is actually the TORAH Scroll, that set is the basis of all Judaism.  I believe that the function of the pogroms, and the persecutions and genocide of the Second World War were all meant to eliminate the Jews and the Torah from the face of the Earth.  There is something that drives some of Humanity to exterminate that scroll from existence, just like something drove me to find what I have found.  The Tarot images as we will come to see, are actually teachings that came from oral traditions in Kabbalah, that in turn came in the beginning from having a full knowledge of the master key.  The clearest example of the teachings that the Tarot was supposed to contain, are outlined in a book that was inserted during the compilation of the Zohar, which took place in the 13th century.  And the Tarot no doubt in a form similar to the one we know in our day, was meant to prevent the ancient message from disappearing for good, if the ones entrusted with the teachings were killed by chance the mnemonic would still exist.  And therefore be still available to those that still understood the teachings. So the teachings would continue to survive as long as there were members alive who still understood the mnoemics.  But as we can see through this re-discovery, the Tarot keeps most of the major imagery in our modern classical versions, but loses much in way of inter-relationship and completeness when compared with the Hebrew text.

How I photographed each

This is how I photographed each plate of text.  Each was photographed and then put into a photo-processor application for cleaning up.  I am presently rephotographing each grid a second time with all known corrections of mistakes and to proper proportions for viewing connected or separately.

          The Zohar:  Considered chief among the ancient writings of Kabbalah that come down to us from the medieval times,  Sefer ha-Zohar, or 'The Book of Radiance,' is a compilation of wisdom teachings that form a running commentary of the Torah given to us by the words of a Company of Companions as they travel along the various ways in Judea.  It first appeared in Spain in the mid-to-late 1200's and was credited to Rabbi Moses De Leon.  It was at that time reputed to be a collection of ancient teachings that were gathered into a commentary, and appeared initially as a series of pamphlet style publications known as a 'Tract' which is a way of serializing a work.  And it may have very well been the product of Rabbi De Leon's own inspired imagination being mixed in with collections of Rabbinical traditional teachings on the Torah.  I would personally find it an amazing feat of writing if it were only that alone, however it is much more than just a feat.  One section which will be discussed later, is most assuredly, very ancient.  And some of, if not the vast majority of the texts, may have been actually 'automatically written'.  Dr. Daniel Matt wrote in his book, The Essential Kabbalah ‐ the Heart of Jewish Mysticism,2 of the Zohar:  "More than a scribe, [Moses] De Leon was the composer of the Zohar.  He drew on earlier material; he may have collaborated with other Kabbalists; and he may have genuinely believed that he was transmitting ancient teachings.  Indeed parts of the Zohar may have been composed through automatic writing, a technique in which the mystic would meditate on a divine name, enter a trance, and begin to 'write whatever came to his hand.'  Such a technique was reportedly used by other thirteenth century Kabbalists.  But Moses de Leon wove his various sources into a masterpiece: a commentary on the Torah in the form of a mystical novel."3 

          Within this collection there is added a very strange work, something that is out of the norm when compared with the rest of the collection it is bound with.  A section that forms a small book known as Sifra di'Tzni-uta, which is known to English speaking people as, The Book of Concealment.  The work is a very small, vague and a seemingly enigmatic piece of prose instruction consisting of 5 short chapters.  Its date of origin is not absolutely known, however I believe I can pinpoint an approximation of its creation, and also prove at the same time that it is a rewrite of a much older work describing an image set that resides in the letter structure of the Torah.  When investigated in light of the materials I present, it becomes clear that the Book of Concealment was in fact, an instruction book to finding something only known to the intelligentsia of the Jewish Priesthood.  It is a much older writing than is presently surmised going back as far as a time prior to the Babylonian Exile.(see below)

          The Zohar came to be published in the later 1200's, and first appeared in Castille Spain, where De Leon lived.  Its history and appearance are discussed at length in the new series "The Zohar" by Daniel C. Matt (The Pritzker Edition), pubished by Stanford University Press.  The work is now complete as of volume 12.  I would invite anyone interested in a clearer history of the Zohar and Kabbalah to investigate Dr. Matt's work.

          Another translation from a diverse set of sources, and with content dis-regarded in the Pritzker translation, is the 1889 publication by Samuel Liddell MacGregor-Mathers, The Kabbala Unveiled, (or 'Kabbalah Denuda' as it was titled in the Latin.)  This particular translation is a Latin translation of a variety of Hebrew texts, the sources of which I have not yet found.  I got my copy at a Barne's and Nobel Bookstore, it should be easy to find on, inexpensive as well.  It is a manuscript copied out and published originally by Knorr von Rosenrath  In comparing the two translations however, there are a few details that come forth showing the texts that were extant at von Rosenrot's time were, like most copies, varied in their content and were numerous.  The more distinct descriptions in, S.L. MacGregor-Mathers translation, include things that I have found within the image set of the Torah text, these are not included in the Pritzer Zohar version.  It is something to consider, if you decide to investigate the text for yourself or wish to verify my research.

          The Book of Concealment is something scholars have long puzzled over and sought to understand.  In our modern times the book is thought to be a teaching from a lost science.   It is a work whose truths are taken as very real, and many have developed philosophical points and moralistic teachings around those verses, but no one (Jew or non-Jew,) knows how to interpret them in terms of the Torah text except by allegory.  The Book of Concealment gives in 5 chapters a progression that describes arrangements of letters, images of "the Great White-Haired One," who has no eyelids and whose eyes look out unceasingly upon His Universe, along with a number of other images and letter arrangements involving yods and vavs in particular.  The book also has a lot to say about 'balance' and symmetry, but this can only be understood by one who opens the mystery and looks at the arrangement face on.  It has only been in the past 3 years or so that I realized just what it was I had found, after many years of recording the myriad of patterns which produce images in the text.  I had found the Great White-Haired One, I also found the Lovers, and the Chariot, the Lady of Beasts (Strength), and so many others.  For these many years, I was looking at what The Book of Concealment was referring to.  There was much more I found contained in its content than what The Book of Concealment describes.  I came recently to realize that it is all a matter of the time in history in which one lives that dictates how much one can glean from the text in terms of the image content.  Given a person is studied enough, has experienced life and been exposed to a variety of cultures, those images will open a realm of information beyond what is in the the simple face-on reading text of the Torah.  And it is all found by a mathematical formula and very simple method of 'mapping mirror letters' on each line.

I discovered the Tree of Life encapsulated in a series within the face of the Great White-Haired One.  There is a stick figure human that sits on the head of the High Priestess and directly central to the larger face.  A person can define the sephiroth such that the 9th point, Yesod (the Moon, intuition, intellect,) is at the head of the figure.  The 10th point Malkut (the Earthly realm of desire, want, will,) sits in the chest or heart of the stick figure.  The 3 higher realms Ain, Ain Soph and Ain Soph Aur, are arranged as the 3 points across the break between the upper kingdoms and the more rational, human realm below Tiferet, the 6th point of the Tree of Life.  The 3 'heavens' are irrational, like the irrational number line, they are only existing in the intellectual/spiritual realm.  This illustration makes sense when we consider this is man's state in the Universe, caught between what they know and what they desire.  We could say that, 'Humans are basically all in the head, and lead by the heart'.  The battle is to make what you know your life's work, and not get lost in the desires of the world and its delusions.  There is a Greek word, "Hamartia," that means to miss the mark, this is the word used for SIN in the New Testament, if you are not doing what you know to do, in any way you are missing the mark!  (That is as long as you could do it, circumstances permitting!)  The only thing that can balance this seeming contradictory situation is - 'the Law'.   Laws are what add checks and balances to this human problem.  It is our decisions that provide whether we can see our way through to doing something meaningful in our lives or walk the path of the world and its delusions and miss the mark, losing any real benefit of the experience in the process.  This disparity is the main problem with the world.

          It has only been in the last year, that due to some discoveries in the Torah's textual construction, that a thought struck me: the Book of Concealment was 'edited', and that was done to hide a change that was made to a very important piece of an ancient story.  A simple 'losing of content', assuring no one could find the key, because if they did, they would find the secreted plot that was carried out by members of the Priesthood!  My studies have not only brought forth an understanding of the connection between the Book of Concealment and the Torah text, but brought me smack dab into the middle of the crux of a mystery.  And that mystery is, 'Who' changed the story, and the instructions in the Book of Concealment, to cover their tracks?  And more importantly, WHEN?  You see the confusion among many connections of stories or changing to the details to some stories is caused by the 'missing pieces' - edits that were made to make the text say something it did not originally say.  The works that have been produced by this research can explain most if not all of the reasons 'why' people are want to say that the Torah is full of contradictions.

working sketch angel of

one construction of The
            Kashaptu (Witch)

The image on the left is comprised of about 5 of the center grids, the head of the Angel is the 34th grid.  If one takes the time you will find not only the Angel, and the sun, but in the upside down position is to be found, Lady Nuit - one of the prime images found in the funerary make up of a sarcophogus, a goddess associated with funerary rites and the process of the journey to the next world. On the right side is an image I have experimented with a lot, I named this particular construction, The Witch.  The text covers plates 11 and 12, letter #48933 (Genesis 33:15:01:06) to #57910 (Genesis 39:07:02:03).  This figure can also be shown as a spirit rising above two magicians scrying in a globe, and again as Potiphar's Wife, shown with false tears and a Wild African Dog around her neck(!)  As one should realize by now there are layers of images that weave in and through other images within the text, but it is the amount of information that provides the real paradox as to 'Who' put it there.

          I can say with a surety that the Torah is more than some ancient scroll to be relegated to the pile of history -- to be ridiculed by small minds and those who deem themselves 'godless,' it is much more.  It may in fact be the one thing we need to survive ourselves as a species on this Planet and in this Universe!  The one thing that will explain our purpose for being sentient, for being the only animal on this Planet with the power to remove all life from the face of this Planet.  Within it is a chronicle of Time, and not just Jewish history - World history.  I will not however claim that EVERYTHING is in there, like one famous Rabbi did.  No, I cannot say such a thing, I don't think any one person can.  The information was meant to be found, that much can be said.  And being found again, is not without purpose, but to say it contains everything about everyone - if he means, on the other hand, 'only those written in the Book of Life', then he came close to a very real truth, whose explanation must come only after a thorough scrutiny of the text and its patterns.

          The image set in the Torah, is a compilation of ancient wisdom teachings.  There are gods and goddesses, plants and animals, events, star charts, the original Tarot and faces of known characters, plainly to be seen if one looks with a discerning eye at the text.

          Below are three images, the one on the left is from the THOTH Deck, and in deference to the kind Egyptian gentleman who corrected my pronunciation of the name - it is pronounced: "Ta-Hot", (published by Wieser.)  The original concept was claimed by Aliester Crowley, from his interpretation of the ancient teachings he was able to glean in his wide travels, and painted by Lady Frieda Harris.  The image in the center is from the middle of the 'Tapestry' section, which is the approximate center of a Torah Scroll, also in 3 plates.  In it we find the Sun at the top, shining down on the living, great and small, firm and infirm, shining over a walled city.  And below that image is The Angel of Judgment, calling forth the dead from the Earth.  What is most interesting to me about this set is that what we are looking at in reality is the junction between the constellations Leo (The Sun), and Virgo (the Female Angel who comes dressed as a Warrior).  They sit complete, in the middle three grids of the 67 cube root set.  The Zodiacal Cycle as it appears in the Torah, begins with Aries the Ram, who is also the image of Amun Ra in reversed view from the Second Grid plate of the set.  The third image to the right is from the Rider-Waite deck (US Games,pub.) Designed by Edward Arthur Waite, this is the Major Arcana card, 'Judgment.'  (TAROT according to Western Occultists, in Old French was used to describe the Wheel in the Sky, that is the Zodiac.  The more correct interpretation comes from the word itself read backwards and transliterated into Hebrew: Tarot = 'Torat,' that is: 'Laws.'; cf. II Samuel 07:19: 'The Laws of Man.')

            Judgment - the junction of Leo and Virgo.

Judgment from the
            Rider-Waite Deck.

The image in the Center is known from the Tarot, as the Judgment card, one of the Major Arcana, and it is comprised of the 33rd, 34th and 35th grids in the 67 grid series, it runs from letter #147691 to #161157.  To either side you see on the left 'the Sun' - showing the 'hill' which forms the walled city under the Sun, and makes up the Angel's Helmet, this image is from the THOTH deck designed by Aliester Crowley and illustrated by Lady Frieda Harris.  to the right side: We see the 'Judgment', from the Rider-Waite Tarot deck, designed by Edward Arthur Waite and illustrated by Pamela Coleman Smith.

          The 'grid' images you see here, were transferred from the transcribed text onto desktop quadrille paper and all letters not mapped left blank according to letters in each line (in this case 67), the digital text was done with one space between each letter not so the black and white quadrille grids. Those that were mapped as equidistant from the center were filled in with black marker to eliminate the clutter of looking into the entire text and visually sorting out the mapped letters.  The plates one at a time were then photographed and put together in a graphics application on my computer, one below the other in order from first to last.  The complete image set is comprised of 67 grids 67 letters wide, 67 lines deep and containing 4489 letters each.  This body of text is comprised of 300,763 letters of the total 304,805 letters that make up the Torah.

          For a few millenia now the Jews have been so entrenched in tradition that in most cases that rigidity has closed the Torah to any person really seeking its insights.  More often than not this has been led by 'traditions' and for the most part mythologized accounts that lead to fantastic miracles.  Not to mention the rule by cult of personality of individual rabbins and their approaches or guidance.  This is not to discount extra-normal occurance; there are such things as true miracles.

          In this sense 'tradition' has been a choke-hold on the rediscovery of this ancient knowledge.  And it should be remembered that the sources which come from the Sages are in many cases from the 2nd century B.C.E., or earlier.  The most revered Sage material is concentrated in the Middle ages, and is based for the most part in errant science.  There is no denying the mishnaic structure to most of the teaching from that time period.  And it is not just to be tossed as being something fantastic and of no mean basis as there is a lot of wisdom to be considered.  But in our day we see the same teachings being taken as 'the words of G-d' for so many in the ultra-0rthodoxy, even though the leaders of these cults are fairly educated MEN for the most part, they are ignorant and without knowledge of why they are.  Though that could be called into question with the actions of many of these hard-line ultra-zealots!  Then also, like many fundamentalist Christians, it is also among fundamentalist Jewish Sects (Ultra-Orthodoxy, Chassidim and Haredim,) that much is taken literally that is really not meant to be, much is explained in terms that are askew from the real truth of the matter and much is overlooked because of the rigid traditions of men; which tend to supercede the Laws of G-d.

          And the rabbis all the while were totally ignorant of the great wealth of information within the Torah text themselves because of a long line of Priestly 'tradition' that went unquestioned.  Which means most went ignorant by their choice,(consider the words of Yehoshua to the 'Lawyers'!)  But it can also be said their deepest ignorance was mainly due the knowledge of a story that was originally in the text of Genesis, having been rewritten, two sections actually.  And as I have come to find; there is another edit noted in the same way in the book of Numbers* 28:28 to 29;11.  This having left the collective memory of the Jewish people sometime between the time of the Death of Moses and the first Babylonian Captivity and the workings of a specific set of the Priesthood.  And as I have surmised elsewhere in this presentation; it coincided approximate to the splitting of the Samaritan and Jewish communities into separate entities, all while Assyria was in the midst of infiltrating and summarily conquering the land of Israel.  This demarcates the time when we see different Torah versions develop among the groups of the diaspora; the greatest divergence is found among Samaritan Torahs which in the year 2000 numbered 6000 known separate variant versions (scrolls.)

          It is also during the Babylonian Captivity that the Jewish Priesthood, became the leading force of social and legal matters for the Jewish People, and a class unto themselves, separate from the common Jew.  Some may argue this, but with a perusal of Jewish Sage writings this becomes very evident.

          There is a most glaring example of just how tradition-bound the Jewish priesthood had gotten found in the New Testament:  where the one known today as "Jesus" (whose name was really "Yehoshua" or Joshua) confronted what the King James text calls 'Lawyers,' and says to them, "Woe unto you, Lawyers!  For ye have taken away the key of knowledge:  Ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering, ye hindered!"4   He was not talking to men who were just scholars of the Law (Torah), these men who were termed 'Lawyers' were really those who were the Masoretes - Masters of the Tradition - of their day.  They were the men who were the 'editors' and keepers the words of the Torah text.  It was these men who studied day and night to 'perfect God's Torah,' that is to make the Torah text 'closer' to the original, as they conceived it.5  Yehoshua knew that the ignorance on their part of the existance of a Key of Wisdom, was due to the removal of any study other than that permitted by Rabbinic Law; which disallows any study outline other than what the chief Rabbi or the teacher of students prescribes for their study.  And therefore, after generations of such rule, and being ignorant of the ancient teachings actual source, they cut themselves out of the understanding of the wisdom that was even then only a legend and preserved only among the writings of the Kabbalists (the main body of Mystics in their day.)  But it is to these Kabbalists that we owe a debt of gratitude for having kept all the long years teachings even they did not understand in full, but knew were part and parcel of something very important that would be one day revealed in whole and not just in part.  So there is something to be said for 'tradition' - the Jews were called (by G-d !) a 'Stiff-necked and stubborn people.'  It was mostly this stubborness that preserved what remains to us of the original text of the Hebrew Torah!

Moses, the Scribe and

Angel of the Book

In this pairing we see two three grid strips: On the left we have plate 25, 26 and 27 that goes from letter #111779 (Exodus 23:20:04:03) to #125245 (Exodus 31:11:05:02). The images are easily interpreted from scripture: "You, Moses shall be as G-d unto the people, and Aaron will be your Prophet.." but what is interesting in this array is that there sits a Scribe in between the two Portraits.  On the right side is "The Angel of the Book," from grids 30, 31 and 32.  This image spans the text from letter #134224 (Exodus 36:29:02:02) to #147690 (Leviticus 05:24:10:05,) which in the modern Tarot has taken on a couple of different portrayals - Such as Crowley's Interpretation of the Major Arcana 'ART'.  But here we can plainly see it is an Angel reading from a scroll (or book.)  There is a 'secret' to the Angel - He is reading from the Book of Life.  This section contains references to WWII, as evidenced by the presence of a picture of 'the Enemy of Mankind'- and initiator of the Holocaust, portrayed here, as an anthropomorphic dog, which in itself is part of a larger image of a Doberman Pincer.

          As for Yehoshua, he was a prodigy.  This is pointed out in another place where he is found 'arguing with the scholars.' He was 12 years old.  Had he not been worthy of arguing with, he would have been beaten for being an upstart, and his parents punished; As a Jewish Male, you do not reach the age of accountability until your 13th birthday.  He was arguing Torah with them!  Personally I believe that by the time he was said to have confronted the Masters of Tradition, he had been introduced to some of what The Book of Concealment describes in the Mystical studies of the Kabbalah, and that is very likely the reason for his comment to the 'Lawyers'.  It also seems pretty clear to me, that being a good law-abiding Jewish son, he didn't spend the years of his youth in some foreign land or only working carpentry; he was deeply studied in the Torah.  I maintain that he spent that time studying Torah among the Mystics.  He may have even encountered a form of The Book of Concealment6 which he was able to decipher for himself.

          Sometimes a person can read something, put it aside and by chance come back to that thing later re-read it and realize: "Why didn't I see this before -- it has been right under my nose!"  And so it is that I came upon this pair of quotations attributed to Yehoshua (Jesus,) from the book of the Gospel of Thomas.  I remember the first time I saw the book, I bought it while I was in Denver Colorado at a store back in the early '80's.  There was something about the text that made me replace it after a life changing event, it had made such an impression on me.  And so it was that I happened to pick it up the other day and fell upon these two lines:

          Line 83: "Jesus said, "Images are visible to people, but the light within them is hidden in the image of the father's light.  He will be disclosed, but his image is hidden by his light."

          Line 84: "Jesus said, "When you see your likeness, you are happy.  But, when you see your images that came into being before you and that neither die or become visible, how much you will bear!"

          The text is that of Marvin Meyer's most excellent translation of the Coptic facing the original on each page. The Gospel of Thomas (In Coptic and English,) published by Harper Collins, 1992.

The Hermit and the Hanged Man

The Hanged Man and the Hermit.  As with all of the geometries this is only one interpretation of the patterns.  Please bear in mind the set positions of the letters are 3500 years old, the script may be modern but the letters are one to one correspondence so the pattern is original to the text.  This is found only by digitally dividing the maps involved and placing the outer edges of the normal view together side by side.  When done with the entire tapestry section, there is a whole other path revealed.  I found this from remembering a hint from an old Sage tradition that talks of 'rolling' the letters and 'turning the letters.'

          Those two lines beg the question whether or not this key was known into the first century of the last millennium?  Perhaps not, but it points to the reference of images, and that is just too close to the truth we find in this study, not to deserve a mention.

          When we are considering edits; an even more apparent example of how those who have edited the Torah for their own sense of 'perfecting' it, can be seen in the two pictures following the Janus-mask image in the illustrations inserted, above.  On the left is the 'Traditional*' text version of the first plate that corresponds to The Book of Concealment.  On the right is the same body of text edited by Rabbi Dr. Mordechai Breuer.  This text became the basis for the Torah edit, which was adopted as the Official Torah text of Israel in about the year 2004.  This version or edit is known as the Crown of Jerusalem (that is, Keter Yerushalem).  This should by example show you something of the differences between the texts and also make known the importance of making this discrepancy known and then seeking to correct this matter!  I am sure Rabbi Breuer wasn't aware of the changes he made by moving just two 'WoW's', and neither was anyone else because they did not and do not know the mathematical key.  In the one version (the Traditional text,) you get the Great White-Haired One, in the other (the Ben Asher-based texts) you get a BEAST devouring a Human head.  It is said that moving one letter or removing one letter in the Torah, can change time and the Universe  -  Should there be anything to that teaching, I would then have to say, that this world of in-Humanity is in trouble..!

          I came to find out most recently that Koren Publishers in Israel have abandoned the Traditional text and now are only printing the Keter text.  Again we see the attempt, even if unknowingly, to pervert the timeline of the REAL Hebrew Torah text - and this time by the Bible Project of Hebrew University itself and the Israeli Knesset.  The Beast, is a wild animal raw, untamed, and dangerous.  this is what you get when you abandon the Rule of Law, the human is no better than a wild animal running only on self-desires and instinct; seeking to satisfy only itself and damn the rest!  This suits the description of the phase of the Age of Pisces and Era of Pisces that we are in: The Gemini Phase which lasts from 2010 C.E. to 2025 C.E., I would advise the reader to look it up at your earliest convenience.

          This is not to say humanity will fail to survive this time, but there is a vast difference between just surviving and doing so with enough to thrive and prosper, with people who are not just animals.  This Torah has to continue with Humanity through our time as a species!  We have to keep this Torah with us, to remind us of who we are, what we are and where we are going; but more importantly, 'why.'

          (*this is to differentiate between two different texts of the Hebrew Torah; the Masoretic, based on Codex Leningradensis; and the Traditional Text as published in a number of standard Hebrew Torahs in book form - cf. with KTAV publishing house's, Tikkun L'Karaim, The Return to Calling, 'reading aloud the scriptures'.  Or for that matter, Aryeh Kaplan's, Living Torah, there is also the 1917 version of the Tanach, by the Hebrew Publishing Company of New York.  All of these Torah's use the same textual source.  The lineage of this particular text, as I have come to understand it is in fact, Yemeni.)  As noted above the traditional text is no longer printed by Koren, but is available (new condition) on if a person wishes to find and use one.7

          The text of The Book of Concealment is keyed to images found by using the mathematical key and then mapping of the Hebrew letters of the Torah according to the ancient mathematical geometry I mentioned earlier.

          There are scholars who tend to hold that a more Proto Hebrew like Samaritan, was used for the script of the Torah.   I am of the mind the Proto-Sinaitic is closer the Old Hebrew Script, but that is a moot point, as the Torah proves there would have had to been a letter to letter correspondence in its transliteration, and that proof is too strong to have any critique otherwise stand against it.  Samaritan does not stylistically follow the Proto-Sinaitic style of lettering, that style is to be found best exemplified in the examples found in recent years at the sites of the City of David, in Megiddo, and the temple script which is closer to the style of lettering originally used.  Now granted, this is 'my' studied opinion from sifting through many scholars.

          The Samaritans at one time were a people joined to the Hebrews, but due to a clash of leadership and philosophical differences, they parted ways and chose to become a people unto themselves; a short time prior to the Babylonian Exile.  That is the traditional story I have found commonly used to explain the split.  However, I have suspicions that the truth which is not more properly known in our day, is in fact given a glimpse in an obvious clue in the argument about the placement of Abraham's sacrifice of Yitzak: North; and Mt. Gerazim, say the Samaritan Elders vs. South; and Mt. Moriah, which is the site the Hebrew Elders claim.

          This clue is in the fact of the difference of placement, and the fact that it involves a very specific pair of stories - which we will find have been entirely re-written from where Abraham says, "I am here,.."  in Genesis 22:02:01:02; to the last statement of closing the agreement on the cave in Mamre, Genesis 23:13:15:03.  It is here in this storyline the text has the cave situated in the region of Mamre, that is; modern day Hebron, (in the South.)  However, in the book of Joshua we are told the cave was in Shechem, the site of an old Canaanite fortified encampment, which is modern day Nablus (in the north.)  I maintain with what this research yeilds and shows us; we will find the truth is that Shechem, is the place of the Cave of the Patriarchs, as it has been known for centuries.  The true cause of the split was not philisophical - it was that someone found out the crime of the Priesthood in rewriting G-d's Word.  Someone well studied in the Hebrew Torah, and who had not forgotten the true order of things.  This is my working theory on the matter, as the evidence in the form of a clue from tradition combined with the 'truths' that the evidence reveals speak too plainly: the truth is just been worn away by being lost to peoples collective memories.  When the Torah text itself is a witness; can it really be denied?  The changed stories are found in the 6th grid of the Tapestry section and appear as a well defined interference or scatterfield array where a continuation of the geometries around it should be found.  Instead the observer will find no discernable pattern in the geometries that make any sort of logic.

          The Babylonian Exile was a removal of specific elements of the populace in the land of Israel, in stages.  And was not a removing of the entire populace, but a taking away of the most valuable assets of the society, the intelligensia and tradesmen to the Cities and sites of industry within the Assyrian empire.  The Assyrians were usurpers of technology from the earliest times; having shown a penchant to indoctrinate other societies to their form of record keeping and use of natural resources.  The stories from old of the hanging gardens bring to mind the great application of technology the society made use of in agriculture, architecture and sciences like Mathematics and Astronomy.  Food may be the underlayment of a civilization, but that civilization's true level of intellect is its survival!  The change to the letter style into the modern form we see today occurred prior to the Babylonian Exile.  The reason I explained in the paragraph above.   The first of these 'exiles' dates to around 597 B.C.E., or approximately 2,500 years ago.

          Something that should be noticed here for those who wish to study more closely: the letter transliteration from the Old Hebrew to the Asurut Hebrew text is equivalent - that is to say the letter values and sounds are identical (there are regional pronunciations noted, just as there are cognates between Hebrew and Assyrian words.  And now with the Master Key we will be able to distinguish a lot of edits and changes to the text by editors through time.)

          I should make a note here for the reader: NO, I am not mad at the Jewish People, the people of today had nothing to do with it, this occured long before any within memory.  I don't know how to say it any other way than to tell you, all: I am really angry.  Angry that someone, anyone, would dare to do such a thing, and deliberately.  But their handiwork shows us something very interesting -- They could manage to leave proof of their deliberate work by leaving evidence of three lines top and bottom that exhibit no pattern mapping, at the beginning and end of the edit: but they could not find a way to fake a pattern into the same place!

          I have to amend my thoughts on this 'crime.'  As I have come to recently wonder: The section in Daniel about the book and the Angel and the sealing up of the words - in the Book of Daniel; That portion about the sealing up is just like most of the rest of the book, or for that matter like the book of Genesis, it is all a pastiche of sewn together teachings and literal images.  The importance in that knowledge is to realize in the case of the Book of Daniel, it is to alert us to a clue, it is an OLD portion, just like Shnaim Ochazin in the Talmud: you see the Torah itself is a pastiche of stories that come from a variety of times and peoples - because the Jews were such a people.  However, the entirety provides a seamless tapestry (or did in its original) which we can see only in its altered form in our day.  I hold that the admission of the change is directly spoken to by 'Daniel.'  It was closed up - the words were 'closed up'; to be unlocked at some time in the future: I say that day is our day. The proof is the Torah text and what it can show us to that end.  My anger comes from knowing that that information was taken from us - on purpose - and is lost now to us, forever, though we have well enough of the puzzle to see through what it is we need to learn: there will always be that part that is missing.  And that just sort of hurts inside, like losing a part of your own self.  But for me it has become something that is fact, though one can always hope that someday, somewhere, someone will find that story section in some dune or cave.  And I have to stop, consider and admit: according to the tale - he, Daniel, was 'told' to do this.  But now its purpose is known and the time has been fulfilled, the book and the words are now opened to us; but how will we receive it?

rewrite of text in grid 05

          The Torah has been called by many Rabbis, A living document, it is more in my way of thinking, a mutable database that adjusts to changes to it in various ways working within certain guidelines, but that function doesn't work when actions like the edit to the stories in Genesis 22 and 23 happen.  There had been a moving of two lines in Exodus to Numbers and that displaced the text by 85 letters, showing us a mutation in the timeline.  But the instance in Genesis 22-23 was a deliberate re-write of a specific area of text and specific set of stories, which if you notice; takes care of who is who for first born, and claims a piece of land that is not properly mentioned in the orginal story; that is clear and without question.  However this - is without letterplace displacement - it is deliberately done by a sectioned arrangement there is no pushing of the letter line ahead or back.  The story is rewritten to fill the exact amount of letters that were contained in the original stories!  And I maintain that it coincides with the time placement of the split between Israel and the Samaritans; because it makes too much sense when you align the traditional argument, the letter change, the rewriting of the stories with the Babylonian Exiles thrown into the mix all at almost the same time; The upset of Israeli society alone, would allow changes to be made in the text, and due to the havoc of relocation under new overlords, many would be forgetting much of their former cultural life and its details by enforcement of the government who were now their new masters.  This is my reading of it; from the evidence.

the major edit

Hand-done desktop work
            with double page presentation

This is a pair of photos I took of my original endeavor.  They are done on desktop quadrille pad paper in pencil with the mapped letters inked and special notations can be seen all over the place.  One day soon I hope to complete this handwritten set, just for the sheer joy of doing the letters and finding the patterns that are not evident without prudent scrutiny of each plate of text.

          When the whole story is told, I am willing to state that the mathematical key that is required to 'open' the text is important in and of itself, because it shows that the mathematics used among those Jewish scholars was far in advance of the civilizations around them (especially the civilization that conquered their territories and destroyed their First Temple.)  The Assyrians had great military might and ability in math enough to construct great structures and lay out waterways for irrigation and plot the travels of the stars in the heavens.  Though they were able to calculate the cube roots of numbers, their mathematics was limited in its scope.  The math needed to find the image set requires the derivation of a cube root beyond what is known to be their greatest endeavor of 32,768.  The derivation of cube roots is something they achieved for numbers up to the number 32,768 with the cube root of 32.  The ancient Egyptians were only known to accomplish this some time after 1000 B.C.E..  However, this may yet be proven wrong, owing to the profusion of recent discoveries in ancient Cuneiform and Egyptian texts.

          Speaking of the ancient Egyptians, there is to be found a very large volume of Egyptian iconography within the tapestry of geometries, which provides us a lot of questions as to why a Hebrew text dedicated to the pronouncements of a so-called 'Tribal G-d', would allow for such a thing.  The present dating of the Torah by some in the Biblical Archaeological field is estimated at around 3500 B.P.E., which places its origin around 1500 B.C.E.  This date is also backed-up by the contents of the Egyptian iconography to be found. So it may be surmised that the image patterns were extant from the very beginning of the collecting together the initial parts of the Torah's accounts.  This however was not in the present pattern sequence we observe in our day.  The patterns were rearranged by the moving of two lines, possibly in the time of Joshua (the Joshua whose book is next in line following the Torah,) long before the edit spoken of above.  This rearrangement affected the text from the Book of Exodus, the 24th chapter, to the Book of Numbers chapter 10: vs's 35-36, which is where the two lines appear now and have existed for the known extant textual history of the Torah.  The important thing to realize in this explanation is that whatever the patterns were originally in this portion of the whole, they were totally rearranged by this edit.  However when we look at it in light of the tapestry as a whole: it still provides an understandable and for the most part, contiguous set patterns even after the moving of the 85 letters of the two lines!  And the patterns tell of a change in the timeline of Jewish history.  And this was a deliberate move to break a pattern of three sins by the People of Israel against God in the Wilderness, so the decision was to break the pattern of the Torah's flow and thus cut the first sin from connection to the second and third.   One interesting thing to note is that this is a natural edit; that is to say, it doesn't rewrite a story though it does replace a part of a story in another place of the texts, another book to be exact, and it displaces the letterline by 85 letter places.  The knowledge of this provides us with clues to edits made much later on by the Masoretes who were 'in charge' of the Torah text for the early centuries of the First Millennium C.E., and as well; the Scribes who were in charge of caring for the exactness of the text over a few thousand years. 

          The one area in particular of the text where the edit of the stories of Abraham, Yitzak and Sarah's death were made by using the key deals directly with the Abraham-Ishmael-Yitzak connection, that not only links the Jews to their claimed Progenitor, Abraham, but also indicates Yitzak, was loved over Ishmael; which may or may NOT be true.  Abraham is important to the Catholics and other Christians who connect with the story in their belief that the attempted sacrifice of Yitzak, 'types' Jesus being offered for us goyyim; in the form of that Ram caught in the thicket, after the Angel Stops Abraham's hand.  And now we will find it is not in any way true, the entire set of stories are a fabrication.  Muslims tie their religion to the Hebrew Scriptures, of course through the first son of Abraham, Ishmael (who appears later on in the stories a couple of times.)  Please note also that Yitzak, would have been about 30+ years old at the time.

          I want to ask the reader a question here: With all the proclamations made by G-d, that directly prohibit human sacrifice, that dictate murder or slaughter of another human is absolutely forbidden:  How do we find a story saying G-d wants someone to kill his son?  If you have wondered too, you are in good company, the Jewish Sages found ways to discern wisdoms from the story and all the sermons that have been written, and now we can put the doubt to rest!  The stories in the specific section - are lies perpetuated for a specific agenda(.)  1. To eliminate the record of Ishmael (or try to.)  and 2. To claim land that was in a more southeastern portion of the land to have access to the Jordan and the Gor.  (look it up.)

          The Hebrew Scriptures which are known to Jews by the Tanakh (a term combining the three portions of the Old Testament's names in Hebrew: Ta - Torah, the Law; Na - Neviim, the Prophets; and K - Ketuviim, the Writings,) it should be clear to anyone who has studied these books that the entire set is based within the core teachings - the Torah itself.  The introduction of the fact that a portion was re-written, (the particular story that was edited,) in light of our present world condition could prove very problematic for the Jews living in Israel - it corrects a mistake in their claiming possession of land that is not really part of Abraham's dealing. And these more modern religions that align themselves to the Hebrew Scriptures through such parts of the Torah, will in some cases find the basis for their typing Isaac to Jesus, to be non-extant.

          This work must be made known to the world, especially now.  We live in a time of great ignorance.  As a friend told me some time back, "If you were to die today, who would come to know of this?  It might be lost forever!"  It is with this and now the fact that the Traditional text is slowly and methodically being replaced in Judaism in mind that I write this information for public viewing, in preparation for publication of my research and the full display of the image set.  And I have to state; these are only my findings, you may or may not see the same thing, however that is no matter; it is a fact that the patterns are there.  This knowledge cannot be allowed to be forgotten again!

8-9mini 1a


This is a very interesting piece of the text, grids 8 and 9, only set upside down.  The text spans from letter #35466 (Genesis 26:20:11:02) to #44443 (Genesis 31:17:01:03).  I was quite taken by surprise when I found this image of two priests lifting an Ark.  In the upright position there is the Zodiacal Sign of Gemini, that image is very Egyptian in style.  the 'Ark' makes an appearance three times in the image set.  I would find it hard to believe that an average person would not be able to pick this image out, almost immediately.

          Some personal thoughts: Atheists and people who hold motives such as Antisemitism, or what we now call the 'Aggressively Ignorant', are thick as fleas in this world of our day, but I fully intend to make this known to any who have the understanding to grasp what the Torah is trying to say.  How can it not be to this generation to us in this day, after this rediscovery?  For surely that is what it is on face examination.  It was seen by others a very long time ago it was seen by someone else, the very proof of this fact is The Book of Concealment  itself.

          And though this may come off to you as amateurish because I have not foot-noted ad nauseum each and every source, as should properly be done when presenting a paper or theory; I have repeatedly tried to improve my presentation to you all in my approach to this subject.  This page has been an experiment in preparing to write.   Certainly 21 years of study has benefitted me with the enlightening of my 'Self' to its own ignorance.  I, myself, still have so many questions about various parts of the story, and the creation of the Torah and Tarot.  Soon I shall have the material complete and arranged to present not only the full corpus of the Traditional Torah text but the text of a composite Ben Asher style text based on the Leningrad Codex (of which I have a recently published facsimile edition.)

          That being said, I can only say further that I know enough that were I standing before anyone learned in the Hebrew Torah - and in the face of scholarly rational scrutiny, I would be able to expose plainly the secret that has been buried for so long a time with my research and methods. That is this is not something that belongs to a specific group hidden away and sequestered, cloistered from view: This research is for the World; for ALL of us.  I mean; why do you think I even bothered to do this work?  The Torah text has something that must be shown to this modern world: Yes!, there is a "G-d", but the way that Entity is shown to us in the nuance of this text, should cause us all to pause and consider at the very least, in light of what we will find there.

          I am sure this text will remain safe in the view of all.  There is an 'enemy' of humankind and it sits at the door of each and every heart that beats with life; that is fact.  It wants to not let you see this for the reality it contains, the truths that sit inside, and it wants to deny its very existence.  Do you realize in this world today, we have hateful people that would reinstate the actions of the Holocaust among ALL groups, not just to do to Jews!  That is not human, that is the animal part of humanity, the enemy.  - YOU are the gate.  YOU are the gate that allows 'evil,'; YOU are the gate that allows Life.  And only YOU, know if you are telling the truth to yourself and others, strive to be who you are; be honest.  If you find this material hateful or wrong - ask yourself, 'why?'  The reason I know this is safe being seen by the world is because you cannot see its depths unless you are ALLOWED to, so fakes don't make it here.  There is no mimicking this key, this is the original key from many sources and is quite literally; ancient of days.

          In its very nature this work will upset all the religious entities that try to base their dogmas on the Torah.  Ladies and Gentlemen, this is what the Mayan Books of Chilam Bilam predicted in the prophecy for 2 Ahau, the Baktun directly following the 'end of the former calendaric cycle' which ended in 2012;  "There will be an end to God."  Or as I think it really meant:  "An end to the mystery of G-d."  This is for us, Childhood's End.  This is the Iconoclast of our day.

          Additional work, and detailed notes will be made available in appendices, provided the Universe allows me the time to continue   --  or better yet a brain that can parse quicker and clearer than it seems to be able to do now.  (Or for now you can just check out the downloads page and its links!)

          "A religion old or new, that stressed the magnificence of the Universe as revealed by modern science, might be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and awe hardly tapped by the conventional faiths.  Sooner or later, such a religion will emerge."
                    - Carl Sagan

Ol' what's his face

          Just to clarify where I am in all of this:  I do not practice Judaism, Christianity, Islam, or any other religion, I am a Pagan.  I have been a Pagan since 1979, and I remain so because it seems the Universe wants me to keep it that way!  I do hold an ordination, and have since 1978.  Please do not think of me as rash or meaning insult, or hating anyone because I am pointing out facts.  This project is for the saving of Life, all our lives.  The Torah is not a mythological tale, it is a science, a collection of information that we in our day need to rediscover and understand, so that we can keep ourselves from blowing civilization and everything else, off the face of this planet.  And in light of what can be seen in the text from my point of view, it will take some time to work it all out.  However, the best way I have come up with describing the Torah text is envisioning it as a "Quantum Database."  As such it has the function of activating the only quantum computer our species really has: OUR BRAIN.  But this is just my observation.  What will come of this once it is made fully made known is a story yet to be written.

          Please note: These sets of images in the Torah text, are not the products of my mind - I did not invent this; for surely if I could devise this whole schema, I should be called the greatest genius of all time(!)  No! I assure you one thing; this all happened for one reason and one reason only.  I allowed myself to follow an 'inner voice'.  (You who are atheist can laugh now if you want, but I don't back down from what I know to be true.) And through that inspiration and quite literally being given clues, references, materials and other guides, this work has come together.  But always there was (and still is,) this drive in my inner self to dig deeper into the text.  In that digging, I found what I always had suspected was there: science.  You can criticize me and my approach to this study, but you had better have your facts in order when you take on this text, because it, the Torah, will set you straight and you might not like what it has to say.

          This Torah is a kind of 'living fossil' -- the missing link as it were -- to complete our evolution into a deeper understanding of our presence in this reality, that tells us we really are important in the scheme of this Universe.  That there is a reason to our sentience, and it is not all by chance.  And that this Universe is a living thing and Sentient unto itself.  And we are a part of that, which is what we need to learn to understand: mankind is a part of a much greater whole, and important to that whole!  Those who say otherwise are deluded - even the Physics of our day is showing us that!

          Daniel 12:04; “But you Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end.  Many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall be increased...”  12:09;  And G-d said,“Go thy way Daniel for the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end.”

          That Book is now open and has been for 21 years, but it is open as it has not been in a couple of millennia, but then the time had not been fulfilled.  I was given this gift to share with my fellow human beings.  I truly believe this research leads us directly to Daniel's Book, and the key to all the other ancient matters of prophecy and legend.  There has been a question I have pondered for many years:  Why me?  Why was this given to a Goy (a non-Jew,) and not to a Jew?  This is the Torah we are talking about here.  I know one thing: if I were a Jew, or a prophecy believing person - I might be asking some serious questions about now.

          There is much of this story that has to be left out, for good reason, it should be enough of a shock to most people to learn of the 'watermark' in the text of the Hebrew Torah.  We live in a world of many wonders and mysteries, there was always a scale that was out of balance, the Universe has been in a state of unbalance since time immemorial, without that imbalance there would be no life!  We may think ourselves no strangers to the twists and turns of history; but can we predict with any true integrity the future?

          With what I have found in the Torah: I know that someone did, and I also know that someone else dared to change it!  And not just once!  But how? that I will leave it to those with enough understanding in themselves to study deeper.  To search this all out further, I will be offering a complete set of the works for those who wish to see the entire process.   They can then research the full set of materials and repeat the experiment.  Please feel free to contact me at any time by email if you so desire for these materials, I will put a notice up on this page when they are completed.

Peace to you and yours, and Blessed Be!
Respectfully Yours,
