__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.
