137 - NATURE'S NUMBER - 137
137 and Max Born
Many scientists have been intrigued by this number.
Pythagoras, circa 500 BC, introduced a principle called the tetraktis, symbolised by a triangle and a square.
This represented the combination of the trinity and the quaternary, referred to as the mystic four, to compose the number seven, important and very ancient. Equally it depicts the number 347, a variant of 137, where the component rays of white / invisible light are concerned.
137 and the Kabbalah
The KABBALAH is the Jewish mysticism by which the esoteric meaning of a word can be found from its numerical value. Each letter of the Hebrew alphabet has a specific value.
The Hebrew word for Kabbalah is dla w (He=5, Lamed=30, Beyth=2, Quoph=100).
Substituting their numerical values,
Kabbalah, Hebrew dlaw has a numerical value of 137 !
137 and Light
When white light (sun rays) is passed through a glass prism, first accomplished by Isaac Newton in 1704, it splits into seven colours (of the rainbow).
Water droplets act as the prism in Nature to produce the same effect.
The diagram shows the relationship between white light
(1 'it' or 0 'apparently nothing'), the red, green, blue primary rays (3), the spectrum colours (7), give an indication of the numbers 137 and 037.
A combination of the 3 primary and the other 4 ( subsidiary ) rays depict 347.
Or '3 plus 4 make 7', like the tetraktis.
The primary rays, on the left of the diagram, show colour mixing producing 3 further rays ( secondary ) and white light, depicting the number 331.
331 is one of a pair of numbers of the hydrogen atom.
137 and Connected Spheres
Identical spheres can pack in three layers,
as shown in the diagram:
The top single sphere can be seen supported by three in the second layer.
These three in turn will rest on seven in the bottom layer, the middle one of which sits beneath the three in the second layer.
This 'close' packing of spheres also demonstrates the 'number' 137'.
We could also use 137 or 37 or 347 or 7 or 17 & so on to represent light.
137 and Revelation
Even the importance of 7 & 137, as well as other significant numbers, is evident in the Bible.
In chapter 1, verse 4 of Revelation in the Bible, God welcomes John when he greets him with:
"John to the 7 churches which are in Asia: grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the 7 spirits before his throne; and from Jesus Christ."
Later God tells John to write down in a book what he sees and send it to the 7 churches which are in Asia.
When John turned to see the voice that spoke to him, he saw 7 golden candlesticks, and in the midst of these he saw someone like the Son of man.
In his right hand he had 7 stars and out of his mouth went a sharp 2-edged sword.
Jesus said that "I am the first and the last, that I am he that lived and was dead; and behold I am alive for evermore, ..and have the keys of hell and of death.
The mystery of the 7 stars is that they are the 7 angels of the 7 churches, and the 7 golden candlesticks are the 7 churches."
It is obvious that John deliberately intends to draw our attention to the number "7" due to the frequency with which it is used.
And also the number 137,
because throughout the twenty-two chapters of Revelation, in the original King James' version of the Bible,
the number 7 occurs 137 times!!
137 and Sunspot Activity
It is interesting that 137 x 11 (years between major sunspot activity) x 17 (combination of white light (1) and its (7) spectral rays makes 25,619 years, a value very close to one period of precession?
The sun's period of rotation about its equator is 26 days, whilst at its polar regions it is 37 days.
The highly significant 137 and its equivalent 37 appear again in another natural phenomenon.
NUMBERS LIKE WORDS CONVEY MEANING.
Pythagoras, the Greek philosopher and mathematician, said circa 500 BC "numbers are the language of the Universe and that all things are numbers".
During 1996 I started to read magnificent books by American author Bonnie Gaunt, who bases her research on the Kabala.
I was absolutely amazed, as a newcomer to the kabala at this time, that within this system it seems that numbers exist, which have the very same meaning as those found within the structures of Creation.
The Old Testament written in Hebrew, involved a dual character system of word and number.
Each letter of their alphabet represents a number and the system using it is called Cabala, Kaballah or Kabala.
The Greeks called it Gematria when they applied number to the New Testament.
The authorship of Genesis is unknown, though historians think Moses may have compiled it circa 1440 BC, during the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt.
However it is recorded that the Jews began a process of gathering scripts, circa 500 BC, after their release from captivity in Babylon into the scroll, called the Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament.
Circa 200 BC the Jews incorporated a method of numeration to words in the Torah, written in ancient Hebrew, by assigning a particular numerical value, called Gematria, to each of the 22 letters ( and additional 5 symbols ) of its alphabet.
Gematria of Selected Hebrew Text depicting another 'LIGHT'.
"the God of gods" nidl`didl` amounts to 137 (40+10+5+30+1+5+10+5+30+1)
"God" or "Creator" in Hebrew is `dl`adds to 37
"whole" nlyis 370
"El" l`is 31
It follows that 137, 37, 370, 31 are synonymous with CREATOR ( God ) as well as LIGHT.
"to illuminate" cibiis 27
"light" xf` 207 or 27, since zeros are place holders in gematria
"Lord God" idl`dfdigl is 72
72 & 27 are reflected ( mirror image ) numbers.
Their significance will appear in later articles.
137 and 37
Genesis, in the Bible, commences with "In the beginning God created the heaven and earth".
This implies that NOTHING and God, Creator, EVERYTHING can be equated.
Both Creator and sunlight appear to be nothing to the human, but yet they are nothing and everything simultaneously.
Since numbers 1 and 0 show equivalence in this instance, number 137 can transform to 037 or 37 and even 370, and an association with Creator, another light form or 'Spiritual Light' would be expected.
Hebrew gematria confirm my suspicion: "God or Creator"`dl`has the value 37
whole" nly is 370.
The number 7 also constitutes a whole or all because the (one) sunlight consists of the seven spectrum colours.
In this case 137 further transposes from 37 to 31, which infers the Trinity, the three in one, again confirmed by Hebrew gematria "El" l` is 31.
El in Hebrew means God or Creator.
There is potential of 31 to further transformation to 11 because the three primary rays in light become 'one' invisible light on mixing.
The divine number for planet Earth is 11.
In Greek gematria, Earth gh, also has the value 11.
There exists a wonderful matrix of numbers.
"The Language of Numbers" and the Kabala are indicators of the manifestations
from, 0, 1 or 10,
of 11 (Earth), 31 (Trinity), 13 (is distance between Earth and Sun), 037 & 370 (the Whole or Creator, Light) and 137 (God of gods, Light, Chlorophyll), 77 (Haematin).
Prime Numbers 37 & 73, 12 & 21
2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79……….
( 57 for example is not prime since it is divisible by 3 or 19 as well as 59 ).
Recall that 37 or its reflection 73 denotes SUNLIGHT, LIGHT, WHOLE, CREATOR, and 12 the SUN.
The Sun emits Light - ' 37 or 73 comes from 12 '.
37 is the 12th prime.
73 is the 21st prime.
Mirror image numbers: ( 37, 73 ) and ( 12, 21 )
Isn't this marvellous.
A correlation between meaning of WORD and NUMBER.
The 'UNIVERSE' is indicating a TRUTH.
Squares of 12 & 21
Furthermore the squares of 12 and 21 reveal another pair of reflected numbers, a rare phenomenon since about only 300 pairs exist within numbers from 1 to 4,000,000.
( The next pairs, whose squares give reflections are 13 & 31, 102 & 201, 112 & 211, 113 & 311. )
12 x 12 = 144
21 x 21 = 441
144 is reflection of 441.
Author Bonnie Gaunt has found a marvellous significance in Bible gematria.
The gematria of the Hebrew words kedem, ncw meaning 'that which has neither beginning nor end' adds to 144.
Whilst the numerical values when multiplied in beg meaning 'circle' gives 144.
The Hebrew word which has sum of 441 is gm` means 'truth'.
When using all 27 characters of the 22 letter Hebrew alphabet, g and ` are each 12 characters away from m in gm`.
Again both WORD and NUMBER demonstrate TRUTH.
Notice also that the 12th & 21st primes, 37 & 73, embody the number 441.
For 3 x 7 x 7 x 3 = 441.
Whilst 37 x 73 = 2701, '27 characters of the Hebrew alphabet'.
More significantly 2701 is the sum gematria of the first SEVEN words of GENESIS in the Bible :
( vc`d ) ( z`f ) ( nimyd ) ( z` ) ( nidl` ) ( `cj ) ( ziy`cj' )
'In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth'.

, and Sunlight
A prime number is divisible by 1 and itself. The first few prime numbers are:
Gematria using the English alphabet
revealing Jesus 74 & Christ 77
When WORDS are uttered they vibrate the air molecules; words convey meaning to the recipient.
The "sound"/ "word" JESUS basically conveys an image of a special human, of flesh and blood, whilst CHRIST conveys a heavenly or spiritual being/entity/ a Messiah.
Jesus is MATERIAL; Christ is SPIRIT.
Recall Pythagoras, the Greek philosopher and mathematician, said circa 500 BC "numbers are the language of the Universe and that all things are numbers"
NUMBERS like WORDS have a meaning, BUT at the subconscious level.
Substituting numbers for letters where A =1, B=2, C=3 ......Z=26
JESUS = 74 ( the result of 10+5+19+21+19 ).
CHRIST = 77 ( 3+8+18+9+19+20 ).
The gematria contain significant ( 'LIGHT' ) numbers 4 & 7.
Seven is the biblical number of perfection or completion or purification.
Each atom, invisible or white light ( spirit ) can be denoted by 7.
Here on Earth the seven spectral colours of light is the requirement for human eyes to observe the world comprised of atoms ( other sevens ).
We can conclude then, that Christ, number 77, descends to Earth as Jesus, number 74.
This compares with two forms of light ( 7 7 ) in which one loses its 3 primary rays leaving 4 subsidiary ones.
Christ, composed of two sevens: "another" light and spirit, is invisible to human eyes.
The "divinity" of these numbers conveys the SAME information as the words, ie a Messiah.
The number 137 corresponds with light, the ONE or WHOLE light that consists of THREE primary rays, the red, green and blue, or SEVEN spectrum colours.
Light appears to be "NOTHING" to human perception, thus 137 transposes to 037 (see above for meaning).
Light permits the function of our eyes, to illuminate the objects around us.
When we observe an object (apple, house, person, seaside, the moon, a panoramic view, etc) energy patterns, emanating from it, pass through the eyes.
It is marvellous how the brain then interprets, processes or changes this energy input into the image we perceive. So in any observation we do not perceive wave patterns of energy as intricate colours and form, an analogy would be the waves seen rising from the road on a hot summer's day.
Our brain causes a deception, when we are prevented from perceiving an absolute reality.
An appreciation of a truer perception can be found in the film, "Predator I or II, when the alien passed 'in and out' of reality, changing like a chameleon.
Our environment consists of an infinite mixture of waves of energy and frequencies, all intertwined like a ball of string with its hundreds of individual strands which constitute the cable. A multi-dimension of fibres contained within a sphere. When a radio or television, a receiver, is tuned to a particular frequency, sound and vision materialise. Perhaps psychic persons have a gift to 'tune' into other dimensions, other environments, the homes of ghosts, spirits, aliens and so on.
NOTE ON MATERIAL & SPIRITUAL
The spiritual world also "contains sevens", like Earth.
Jesus, number 74, conveys a truth: each earth atom, which comprises the human body is a 7, and the soul frequency needed, to animate this human vessel, is 4.
Christ, composed of two sevens: "another" light and spirit, is invisible to human eyes.
The "divinity" of these numbers conveys the SAME information as the words.
For Christ to manifest as Jesus requires a loss of THREE (77 - 74), the primary 3, like the red, green and blue rays present in white or invisible light, which contains SEVEN spectral colours.
Three is also the (HOLY) trinity.
So "Two sevens ( 77 ) become seven & a four ( 74 )".
( Remove the 3 primary rays from light will leave the 4 subsidiary rays. The 3 primary rays will reconstitute white light, mixing the 4 subsidiary will NOT ).
Four is a "degenerated or impure Seven".
Jesus said, "do as I do" (implying "to aspire to purity" like He did at the resurrection), so that "reincarnation becomes OPTIONAL".
Each human, like Jesus, is also a "74", comprised of earth atoms:
1- animated by a soul (4).
2- each atom is a "seven" (7).
In the free state spirit vibrates at the higher frequency of 'seven', but when confined in the denser world of atoms it becomes reduced to four.
If the soul "acquires" the primary three during its confinement in earth atoms, then it will depart as a "77" when the earth body becomes worn out.
If it returns to the "other world" at a value of "74", then further incarnation is compulsory.
Thus 77 denotes highest purity in both worlds of existence.
137 and Photosynthesis
Photosynthesis occurs in all plants.
It is the process by which chlorophyll, the green pigment in leaves, converts water taken up through the plant's roots or its leaves and carbon dioxide absorbed from the air, into carbohydrate.
This enables the plant to grow.
The process depends upon sunlight. No sunlight - no photosynthesis - no plant - and also no animal life, including human, because oxygen, the by-product of photosynthesis, is essential to the survival of animal life.
Plants similarly depend upon the animals for the carbon dioxide they expire.
Plants and animals complement each other. One cannot survive without the other.
The chemical formula for chlorophyll is C55 H72 Mg N4 O5
Thus one chlorophyll molecule consists of 55 atoms of carbon, 72 of hydrogen, 1 magnesium at its centre, 4 of nitrogen and 5 of oxygen.
A total of 137 atoms.
Magnesium, the atom at the centre of the molecule, has an atomic number of 12.
It is the twelfth member in the periodic classification of the chemical elements, and it contains 12 protons in its nucleus.
Not surprisingly, since chlorophyll depends upon sunlight to function, there is a predictable correspondence between magnesium ( it burns in air with blinding white flame), atomic number 12 and the Sun, divine number 12, or a perceived diameter of 864000 miles.
137 and Haematin
The oxygen used by animals is transported around the body by Haemoglobin in the blood.
Haemoglobin is produced by a reaction between haematin and globulin ( from protein ).
The formula of haematin, C34 H32 N4 O4 Fe OH, is similar to chlorophyll except it contains one atom of iron instead of magnesium.
One haematin molecule contains 77 atoms, another form of light 7 or 137.
We can represent 77 like the Tree of Life, by merging, as shown in the diagram, two like hexagons,
each one composed of 7 circles.
We started with 77 since each hexagram contains 7 spheres or circles.
After merging the purple circles are common to both the green & blue hexagons.
The colouring reveals number 343, digits of which relate to light structure ( 3 primary, 4 subsidiary rays ).
Our start number 7 ( the 7 spectral rays ) manifests itself because 343 = 7 x 7 x 7 or 73.
137 and 'The Tree of Life'
The Kaballist's Tree of Life is depicted by 10 'discernible' circles, as shown.
Also depicts number 137.
The 'invisible' yellow one symbolizes 'hidden knowledge'.
The sphere surrounded by 6 in the bottom layer in connected spheres is also invisible.
The invisible rays which stream from the sun we refer as LIGHT.
Other synonyms are RAY, SUNSHINE, BEAM, SUNLIGHT.
The fine-structure constant, a, in atomic physics can be calculated from a relationship between the speed of light, Planck's constant and electron charge, whence its inverse, 1/a , evaluates to 137.
