Properties of the 1-tree, 41-tree and the 60 polygons enfolded in the 10-tree are compared below:
The fact that the 251 corners of the 60 polygons enfolded on one side of the 10-tree comprise the 11 highest and lowest corners of the ten hexagons and 240 other, unshared corners, 24 per set of polygons, suggests that, since the SLs of the 41-tree are analogous to these corners, the 40 trees of the 41-tree above the 1-tree should be regarded as divided into ten groups of four trees, each having 24 SLs because successive trees have six SLs. Figure 8 shows that the 12 uppermost trees in the 41-tree have
This illustrates the powerful Tetrad Principle, formulated in Article 1 (12). The 11 SLs of the 1-tree correspond to the 11 uppermost and lowermost corners of the ten hexagons enfolded in the 10-tree. The lowest corner of the one enfolded in the 1-tree is distinct from the rest in that it does not share its position with corners of other hexagons. This corner denotes the time co-ordinate of the superstring, whilst the uppermost corner of each hexagon denotes the longitudinal space co-ordinate of a whorl represented by the corresponding tree. This difference between the ten space co-ordinate variables and the time co-ordinate corresponds in the 1-tree to the ten SLs and Daath, which, being Yesod of the second tree, is 9 an SL only of cannot be reasonably dismissed as due to coincidence. Instead, it reflects the profound connection between the properties of the Tree of Life as the cosmic blueprint and features of the superstring constituents of quarks — the truly elementary particles yet to be discovered by particle physics but described over a century ago with the aid of one of the siddhis, or paranormal mental faculties, known to yogis.
26-dimensional space-time predicted by quantum mechanics for spinless strings, 251
space-time co-ordinate variables are needed to describe the ten closed curves which, as proposed
by the author in Articles 2 and 5, are formed by the curling up of the 11-brane proposed around
ten higher, compactified dimensions. Just as Article 5 showed that this number quantifies cycles
of emanation of Sephiroth leading to what Theosophists call the cosmic and solar physical
planes, so it expresses the geometrical degrees of freedom of the superstring as a
higher-dimensional object. Encoded in the Tree of Life is the map of all seven cosmic planes of
consciousness (the ‘Cosmic Tree of Life,’ or CTOL). A section of this prescribed by the ten
Godnames bears a remarkable analogy to the structure of the superstring predicted by the author
and confirmed by century-old, paranormal descriptions of the basic units of matter. That this is
no coincidence is further shown by the characterisation of the geometry of this section of CTOL
by the number 496, which is both at the heart of superstring theory and the gematria
number value of Malkuth, the physical universe, as well as by the encoding of the number 251 in
the outer and inner forms of the Tree of Life. The precise parallelism between these encodings
reflects the profound design of the Tree of Life as the cosmic blueprint not only for realms of
higher consciousness traditionally associated by religions with the after-life but also for the
basic units of matter making up the physical universe. Matter as well as man is made in the
‘Image of God.’

The number of tree levels in the n-tree ≡ T(n) = 3n+ 4. The 41-tree has T(41) = 127 tree levels. 5.The number of tree levels in n overlapping Trees of Life ≡ Ť(n) = 3n + 3. Therefore, Ť(91) = 276. 6.For the definition of the Lightning Flash, see p. 15 in Article 5. The number of stages of descent of the Lightning Flash from the top of the n-tree = 4n + 3. For the 41-tree, this is 167. 7.Proof: The number of yods in n overlapping Trees of Life = 50n + 20.
50 overlapping trees have 2520 yods. Of these, ten yods are above Binah of the
50th tree, leaving 2510 yods below this point.8.Proof: using the formula given in (4), T(29) = 91. 9.Phillips, Stephen M.
