The harmony of the Kabbala, revealed in the numbers 77, 777 & 7777

In this writing it will be shown how the exceptional beauty of the Tree of Life and the Hebrew alphabet are revealed in their holy mathematics.

A key to understanding the perfection of the Kabbala's unity is in the end-letters of the alphabet, as the letter Aleph has a numerical value of 1000:

Together with the end-letters, the alphabet consists of 28 letters:

These letters written as their complete names contain 77 characters altogether:

=77 characters
Here we write the 28 letters of the alphabet, but we replace the end-letters with the corresponding simple letters so that the Aleph as 1000 is replaced with a simple Aleph. The entire alphabet adds to 1776:

The Tree of Life
The end-letters find themselves on the same paths on the Tree of Life as their corresponding simple letters. The 1000-Aleph finds itself on the same path as the 1-Aleph. For the sake clarity and legibility, the illustration below shows the respective letters two times on all paths:

The letters on the paths around Tiphereth:

The number 777 builds itself on the Tree of Life from 3 letters, all of which are connected to Tiphereth:

By writing all letters that lead to Tiphereth as whole words, the following picture is produced :

The full names of all letters that lead to Tiphereth, except

are:

These letters add to 777:

Therefore one finds on the paths around Tiphereth 2 x 777:
1. The letters

in their simple form.

2. The remaining letters in their written names.

The harmony and perfection of the Kabbala in its holy mathematics arises also in the number 7777, as in the following demonstration. Here we will examine the alphabet with its end-letters and the 1000-Aleph on the Tree of Life. The path leading to Tiphereth is once again of special significance. In the traditional portrayal of the Tree of Life the paths are numbered from 11 to 32. For simplicity and clarity, in this writing I will number the paths from 1 to 28, corresponding to the 28 letters. For the mathematical result these numbers are of little significance; they serve only for the clarity and understanding of this discourse. The result remains untouched. By numbering the paths from 1 to 28, 6 paths contain 2 numbers. The end-letters are found on these paths. They serve only for the understanding of the following permutation:
The numbers from 1 to 28 are in the order of the letters on the Tree of Life:

In the following permutation the alphabet is first written in four seven-letter columns:

These four seven-letter columns are now numbered as follows:

The permutation is now continued by transferring the letters to the Tree of Life.


We now examine the letters that are found on the paths around Tiphereth. We will permute the letters so that we read end-letters in their simple numerals:



These letters add to 777:

This wonderful harmony in the kabbalistic mathematics is obvious through the permutation of the alphabet, written in four seven-letter columns. We can now create a similar permutation of the alphabet, written in seven four-letter rows.
For the following permutation we will now write the alphabet in seven four-letter rows:

These seven four-letter rows will now be given the following numbers:

The permutation will now be continued by transferring the numbers to the Tree of Life.


We now examine the letters that are found on the paths around Tiphereth. We will permute the letters so that we read the end-letters in their simple numerals:



These letters add to 372:


We will again permute the letters and add their full names:

This wonderful harmony will still increase through the fact that 7777 is produced from 49 (7x7) letters altogether:

The permutations demonstrated in this writing lead to wonderful, harmonic results; they are evidence for the perfection of the Kabbala and its creator.
I would like it if you, dear reader, would write to me about what you can create from the permutations laid out here. I would like to conclude my explanation with an example of a message in the top point of the permutation.
We will read the Tree of Life like a living book: Here we take an example from the letters around Tiphereth, taken from the 777 permutation. In the reading of the Tree of Life we will change the simple letters to end-letters, if they appear in that sense:

It all appears to me, as if God sent an angel of light, a shining, lightning falcon.
