Dear Mr. Graham:

Your work on the Ark of the Covenant was great even though I disagree with you somewhat as to what the actual Ark of the Covenant is.

You obviously went in search of a physical manifestation of a greater and grander idea. Yes, the Bible tells us that the Ark of the Covenant was 1 1/2 cubits x 1 1/2 cubits x 2 1/2 cubits.

Now look at these number in relationship to halves. What this gives us is 3 halves x 3 halves x 5 halves (3 x 3 x 5).

Now look at the measurements of Noah's Ark 30 x 300 x 50. Delete the zeroes and you have 3 x 3 x 5.

If you were to study the first word of Genesis and discover it's inner secrets you will learn that it 3/5 of what I've come to call the GENESIS FORMULAE.

There are actually 10 letters. We see six. The other 4 are implied by the six. The Zohar tells us that the six letters of the word BERESHITH represent the six directions. You could actually see it as a cuble representing a 3 dimensional reality.

The six letters divided by two is 3. When we place a square with three as it's length, then into a cube it is 3 x 3 x 3. This is what is seen in the word Bereshith. When we take into consideration the other 4 letters not seen but implied by the structure of the word Bereshith we have 4 divide 2. We therefore would have a rectangle of 5 length x 3 width x 3 height: or the very measurements of the Ark of the Covenant and that of Noah's Ark.

I have a site up on the GENESIS FORMULAE that takes the word Bereshith and interprets it based upon it's mathematical format and other statement made in commentary on it from the Zohar.
