Now that we have made our geometric, linguistic, symbolic and philosophical journey back to the very beginning of the birth of the universe by cracking pi, we can now come to understand the birth story of the universe of you using the very same concepts, mathematics and symbolism. Embryology is the science of the development of an embryo from the fertilization of the ovum to the foetus stage and as we will see, this multi-layered story of cracking pi is reflected in this story of human reproduction. By calculating the gematria for the words Eighty Six, the number we found within The Great Pyramid of Giza, Circumference / Diameter, as well as the Three Point One Four Two of pi, we find the number 46. The human being is constructed using 46 chromosomes.
In the act of procreation, in the first stage of embryology, both man and woman contribute 23chromosomes. A chromosome is a single piece of coiled DNA containing the genetic information for human development. When the father’s sperm enters the mother’s egg, the two unite into the conception of one child, making a total of 46 chromosomes, with 46 being once again THE VERY FIRST OCCULTED OR HIDDEN NUMBER WITHIN our all-important number 86.
In order to understand how the creation of you reflects the cracking of our primordial pi, we must have a general understanding of the process of human reproduction.
The reproductive process goes generally like this: At a certain point in a woman’s menstrual cycle (a cycle intimately linked to the waxing and waning cycles of the moon) the woman’s hormones trigger her body to produce and release one egg from either the mother’s right or left ovary, a process called ovulation. We will be equating this egg to our initial sphere or primordial egg of creation. This egg drops from the ovariesinto her uterus through a canal called her fallopian tubes. It is in this window of time that a woman may become pregnant. Man and woman unite through the act of sexual intercourse and the man ejaculates his sperm into the vagina of the woman. After the sperm fuses with the egg during fertilization, a new organism begins developing known as the zygote. The human sperm cell is known as a haploid, a term meaning that its 23 chromosomes can join the 23 chromosomes of the female egg to form a diploid cell. The haploidnumber is the number of chromosomes in a gamete of an individual. A gamete (From the ancient Greek gametes meaning “husband” and gamete meaning “wife“) is a cell that fuses with another cell during fertilization / conception. The female produces the larger type of gamete—called an ovum or egg (or symbolically, our primordial egg)—and the male produces the smaller serpentine tadpole type—called a sperm. Male sperm cells contain one of two types of sex chromosomes. They are either X or Ychromosomes while the female egg contains only the X with the sperm cell determining the sex of an individual. If a sperm cell containing an X chromosome fertilizes an egg, the resulting zygote will be XX or female and if the sperm cell contains a Y chromosome, then the resulting zygote will be XY or male. There are two types of chromosomes, sex chromosomes that determine gender and autosomes which contain the rest of the hereditary information. Once fertilization is complete, the chromosomes of the female are denoted by the letters XX and the male denoted by the letters XY.
When they merge, a child begins to develop through a process of cell division called meiosis. The first cell splits into two more cells, and those split again, and yet again, eventually forming the human being within the womb. The term embryo refers to the sphere of dividing cells from the moment the zygote implants itself in the uterus wall until the end of the eighth week after conception. Beyond the eighth week after conception (tenth week of pregnancy), the developing human is then called a foetus. This entire universal story of birth lasts for roughly nine months, segmented into trimesters, or three months each, in which afterwards a new child is born.
Since we already know the ending of our story, and that is, of course, the birth of the universe of you, let’s take a journey through the reproductive system to find out just exactly how this divine universal reflection of the great spirit called the human being came into existence.
GRABBING THE BULL BY THE HORNS
Before we move on to look at the mathematics, symbolism and gematria of this process, let’s first look at the female reproductive system symbolically. It is interesting to note that the shape of a woman’s reproductive area and the head of a bull are strikingly similar in appearance.
There are many references to bull worship throughout religions worldwide. The name El has long been associated with the name of the bull God in many languages (Hebrew, Greek and Egyptian) and is a suffix and prefix found within many names of saints, disciples and divine characters: GabriEL, MichaEL, RaphaEL, SamuEL, AngEL. Bull or calf worship is prevalent in Hindu, Egyptian, Grecian, Minoan, Roman and biblical religious art and architecture, to name but a few. This bull was often depicted with the sphere or egg of creation nestled between its horns.
Astro-theology, or more widely known as astrology, is the subject of study that laid the foundation for nearly all of the religious mythologies of the world and it is here where we the see the golden calf most prominently referenced, in the constellation Taurus, the Bull.
In ancient religions, star worship was directly related to the universe of man and man was in turn a reflection of the firmament of stars above, an idea known as the anthropocosm. The constellations above were mapped onto the human body below, as man was but a reflection of the creative power of the heavenly spheres and lights of our night sky.
Considering that the ancients deemed the stars and constellations of our zodiac to be mirroring the temple of man, it is quite pertinent to point out the linguistic similarities of UTERUS and TAURUS as well as OVARIES and ARIES within the female reproductive system. Aries is the Ram constellation and the zodiacal sign that is attributed to
enlightenment, most notably referenced with Jesus Christ being the Lamb of God. The sun rises in the constellation of Aries during spring. It is at this time in which the sun crosses, or passes-over the equator, around Easter, signifying the blooming of a new year and the rebirth of life (ancient Roman calendars began their year in March). Passing Aries on its annual path, the sun then makes its journey through the constellation Taurus, the Bull. It is during this time of year when life is renewed and the earth springs up from the depths and death of winter and the sun makes its long crawl up to the Tropic of Cancer. The correlation we may make to the womb where the human mother gives birth (the ovaries and the uterus) and the season in which the rebirth of life occurs on mother Earth (or the zodiacal signs of Aries and the Taurus) is most fitting. If man is indeed a reflection of the first moment of creation and, as the ancients believed, a reflection of the heavens above as well, these correlations within the words of human anatomy and the stars above should come as no surprise to anyone who is well versed in esoteric or occult lore. Only those with a willingness to consider deeply the nature of such parallels will recognize the true ingeniousness of the ancients who once walked this Earth. On the zodiacal makeup of man the constellation Aries was assigned to the head and Taurus was assigned to the neck and isn’t it quite interesting that the first things that emerge from the womb or vagina in labor is the head and neck of the baby.
