for several years now i have been playing around with a numerical correspondance system that has proved quite useful for myself.
a=13 b=12 c=11 d=10 e=9 f=8 g=7 h=6 i=5 j=4 k=3 l=2 m=1 n=0 o=-1 p=-2 q=-3 r=-4 s=-5 t=-6 u=-7 v=-8 w=-9 x=-10 y=-11 z=-12.
word totals often equal 0 or some negative or positive number.
one of the beautiful things about this system is the ability to translate rather large texts into small numbers.
interestingly enough, a beautiful symmetry arises when numbers are written in in english; ie:
zero=-8 zero plus zero= -16 or two
thirty one=-8 (or zero)
one hundred and fifty six=49
six hundred and sixty six=0
i originally called the system the "maatian atu", but more recently i have opted for the 'gematria of nothing'.
"nothing is the secret key of this law.
they, the jews, have the half
unite by thine art so that all disappear".
misquote from al.
10 fingers, thirty two teeth in a jawbone etc.
traditional hebrew atu is 0-21
the gematria of nothing is 231 minus 231. or nothing.
see liber 462
i have a software code for pc's which should be available soon/free from my web page. have fun with this strange attractor. it's sure a lot easier than learning hebrew!
