Why does the Torah’s Gematria Appear at Stonehenge?

Stonehenge Reconstruction by Wilhemy

– by B.L Freeborn, June 2012

It’s a mystery. Many studies, many more theories, and it’s still a mystery. It’s like a tangled ball of yarn. If we could just find the right end and pull….It will all unravel.

We have been discussing the 56 Aubrey Post holes at Stonehenge I (the way it looked in the beginning). This leads naturally into looking at the same sort of features at Stonehenge (as it has been reconstructed today). Lotha Wilhelmy has done a very fine reconstruction in this large mural. In the center we see the 5 large monumental stone pairs called the Trilithons. Notice that as one looks at them there is a tendency to mentally try to complete the circle to obtain 6. And then one has to think – no 5- why not 6? But only 5. Once again that 56 pattern reappears. 56 56 recalls the letters that appear by way of gematria for several of the Hebrew names for God.

The most notable features of this structure are the inner and outer two rings of stones. The large Trilithon ring was made of 10 uprights (plus 5 lintels) and outer ring of 30 uprights (plus 30 lintels). 10 + 30 = 40. Here appears the rather Biblical number 40 as in 40 days and nights. And 40² + 40² = 56². In other words, the diagonal of a 40 x 40 square is 56.56.

There are 15 stones in the Trilithon circle. There are 60 in the outer circle. There are 15 degrees of longitude to each ‘hour.’ There are 60 minutes in an hour.

The outer circle of stones is set on a 108 foot diameter. 36 x 3 = 108. There are 3600 seconds in an hour. The inner circle is on a 45 foot diameter. 45 is 6.7². More on this below.

Looking further at this image for more information that might describe concepts found in the Torah, we discover a central horseshoe of bluestones that number 19. This might also be called a cup of stones. Then there are the 5 pairs of large stones of which we just spoke. Around this lies a complete circle of stones that numbers 59. Around this is the magnificent Sarsen Circle composed of 30 uprights. Surrounding this are 29 markers for the Z holes and 30 Y holes. (Not all of the holes are shown in the image.) And then, this is all surrounded by the 56 outer Aubrey post holes.

So, we have a string of numbers that reads: 19   5   59   30   29   30   56

If you have ever studied the gematria of the Torah, a string of numbers like this will appear familiar. Any given phrase converts to a string of numbers.

Nineteen appears to be a meaningless number. It is not. I refer you to my first posts related to Noah’s age at the time of his death at 950 years. Let me quickly remind you that 950 = 19 x 5 x 10. We see the 5 appear immediately after the 19 above. The five pairs are composed of 10 uprights giving us the complete 19 x 5 x 10 = Noah’s age at death.

19 + 5 = 24. Everyone knows what 24 refers to!!! Yes? 24 hours in a day.

19 + 5 + 59 = 83, and 83 = 3 x 27.7. This number represents a concept that is truly interesting. I cannot explain it in a post and do it justice. It is truly part of “The Deep Mystery.”

This 27.7 is related to the 59 in this way.  59 = 7.7² and 7.7 = 2.77²

59 appears several times 30 + 29 and then 29 + 30, an overlapping series.

19 + 5 + 59 + 30 = 113   and 113 refers to?   113 = 2 x 56.5  The 56 appears again!

19 + 5 + 59 + 30 + 29 = 142,    142 = 2 x 71.

I explained in a previous post the difference between 70 and 71.  A short recap is required. An hour is 60 minutes. 61 minutes is one hour plus 1. We are into the next hour or period. Noah began his Ark journey in the 600th year of his life. He ended his journey in the 601st year. He has begun the next period. Or it indicates through number that the next period has begun.

So, 70 concludes a period and 71 begins the next. The next what? Longitude measured at the equator is 69.2 miles per degree. This is an inconvenient number for mental calculation. It is easier to use 70 and then re-adjust the number of degrees in a circle for some calculations to 355 to obtain the correct circumferential distance of travel. And 355 x 2 = 710 or once again 71. So, 70 indicates the distance between one degree of longitude at the equator.

The sum of this string of numbers up to 30 is 172!   We recognize this immediately because we all stayed awake in math class.  3 x 57.3 = 172 and one radian equals 57.29 degrees or 57.3.      So, 172 equals 3 radians.

I heard a lot of “What’s a radian?” It’s important to mathematics and radially moving objects like planets.

Maybe this will seem more of interest to the Torah researchers: 172 = 2 x 86. You must recognize this as the third ‘number’ in the Torah which is Elohim.

And for the science minded, atheist, and doubting Thomases, is the sun not 864,000 miles in diameter?

Re-enforcing this idea is the sum of 56 + 30 which is 86 again.

There is a whole lot of science written in stone numbers here.

The total sum is 228.  This 228 is 3 x 76. This 76 is 2.76² x 10. This is a repeat of the 2.77 we saw previously. The period of Halley’s Comet is 76 years. The 228 is also 4 x 57 which repeats the value of a radian.

Remember that 6.7 that appears in the diameter of the inner circle? Is it the number of the beast 666? Or is it 66624 the velocity of Earth in miles per hour? Or is the velocity of Earth and the number of the beast one and the same, and nothing sinister after all?

But wait! Did they measure with our modern mile? Maybe they used killy-ometers. (It was a typo. Had to keep it.) Uhmmm. No. No klicks here.

The proper way to measure this planet and to preserve the message of the ancient world is to use the standard mile. 5280 feet to the mile means the diameter of the planet is 7920 miles.

Is 7920 in that string of numbers above?

Let’s bring it down so we can have a look.   19  5  59  30  29  30   56

Nope, it is not there. Or? Yes? Yes! It is. It took me a few minutes but I knew it had to be there.  59 + 30 = 89, 30 + 29 + 30 = 89

……………………….and 89 x 89 = 7921.

So, they very likely measured the Earth in miles.

And the 19 equals?  This should be easy for the scientists. 19² = 361. There are 360 degrees to a circle. There are 360 degrees in a freely rotating hinge as in a Stone -hinge. And remember 4 x 19 is 76 and that repeats the idea of a comet.

1/19 = .05263 or 5263 is very close to 5280 feet in a mile and almost how many weeks there are in a year. But it also means……..

Just another riddle. Here’s a clue. What do scientists, modern and ancient, use to measure the universe?

    This is very interesting. They did use miles. In Alfred Watkins’ book The Old Straight Track, he shows a diagram with various things around Stonehenge that sit 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and 1 mile distant. Six miles was one of their favourites. There is that equilateral triangle which has Stonehenge, Grovely Castle and Old Sarum at the corners, the distance between these markers is 6 miles, as discovered by Petrie. The net of lozenges or diamonds which I have strung across England, also has 6 miles per side, and Big Rings sits on a conjunction of that net. Big Rings is one of their older constructions. Thanks for this, was looking for that 108.

    I’m wondering where Wiki gets 108 feet for the diameter. The official inside diameter is 97′ or 1162.8 primitive inches. Even if they are correct about the depth of the Sarsens, 3′ 7″. That would only give 104′ 2″ for the outside diameter. See ancient-wisdom.uk.com, he’s extremely fussy about correct measurements.

      I am checking a third source. John Michell quotes from three references in “Dimensions of Paradise.” He gives 97.32 feet for the diameter of the circle between the smooth inner faces of the pillars. The width of the lintels is about 3 1/2 feet (Atkinson), so the outer diameter of the circle is about 104.3 feet and the mean diameter 100.8.” pg. 29

      This suggests Wiki has a typo. I have found other errors in their material. These numbers very closely match what you state.

      I would think the 100.8 is giving us a good estimate of the desired number. 100.8 is pi x 32 and 32 is 5.66 squared. 100.8 foot diameter also gives 7980 foot area. If the area was supposed to be 8000 sq. ft and we work backwords then the mean diameter should be 100.92 feet which still gives the 5.66×5.66x pi. If they were aiming for an area of 7920 sq ft to match the diameter of the earth then the mean becomes 100.4 and the other value now approaches the more exact 5.65.

      Good catch.

        Got Stonehenge on the brain, and I always check several sources besides Wiki. It’s a great source, but……… The circumference of Stonehenge is supposed to be one quarter aurora, an Egyptian measure. On the net I strung there, the only place where a true octagon exists is around the Sarsen circle. There is something in Egyptian mathematics dealing with circles and octagons.
