ABSTRACT
The author’s previous work proved that the basic
particles of matter observed a century ago by Annie Besant and C.W.
Leadbeater using a yogic siddhi are superstring constituents of the up and
down quarks making up protons and neutrons in atomic nuclei. This article
demonstrates a remarkable analogy between the paranormally described
tenfold structure of the superstring and the lowest 41 trees in the Cosmic
Tree of Life (CTOL) — the map of all possible levels of evolved
consciousness shown in earlier articles to be encoded in the geometry of the
Tree of Life blueprint. The Godnames of the ten Sephiroth are shown to
prescribe both this section of CTOL and a division of it corresponding
visàvis this analogy to the 3:7 differentiation that Besant and Leadbeater
noticed in the strings comprising the superstring. The dimension 496 of the
superstring gauge symmetry groups E_{8}×E_{8} and SO(32) is
found to quantify the geometrical composition of these 41 trees, in
confirmation of their unique status as the superphysical analogue of the
superstring — the manifestation of the Tree of Life in the subatomic world.
The inner form of the Tree of Life encodes this section of CTOL as well as
CTOL itself, the encoding being prescribed by the ten Hebrew Godnames. An
extraordinary, fourfold parallelism emerges between the paranormally
described string structure of the superstring and its encodings in both the
41 trees and the outer and inner forms of the Tree of Life.

Introduction Previous articles discussed how
all levels of reality are mapped by the Cosmic Tree of Life (CTOL). It consists of 91
overlapping Trees of Life with 550 ‘Sephirothic levels’ (SLs). This geometrical representation
was shown to confirm the Theosophical teaching about the seven planes of consciousness and
their sevenfold division. The lowest 49 trees map the 49 subplanes of the cosmic
physical plane and the remaining 42 trees map the 42 subplanes of the six cosmic superphysical
planes. Article 5 revealed the remarkable analogy between the E_{8}×E_{8}
heterotic superstring constituent of up and down quarks described by the Theosophists Annie
Besant & C.W. Leadbeater and the geometrical structure of CTOL — in particular, its
embodiment of the structural parameter 251 and the way in which this number defines the cosmic
physical plane, of which the superstring is the most physical basic unit. In this article, a
certain section of CTOL, namely, the 41tree, will be shown to incorporate this number as well
as other information about the structure and dynamics of the superstring. The analysis will
demonstrate that the gematria number values of the Hebrew names of the Sephiroth, their
Godnames, Archangels, Orders of Angels and Mundane Chakras characterise the mathematical
description of the 41tree too often to be plausible attributed to chance. This means that, as
with any mathematical object possessing true sacred geometry, the presence of these
numbers as descriptors of its properties elevates the status of the 41tree to that of a
holistic structure, that is, one that embodies the divine archetypes. For reference, the table
below lists these numbers. They are written throughout the text in boldface type.

1. The tenfold
superstring Analysis (1) of the clairvoyant observations (2) by the Theosophists Annie Besant
(18471933) and C.W. Leadbeater (18541934) (Fig. 1) of the basic units of
matter they called ‘ultimate physical atoms’ (UPAs) proved that these particles are the
superstring constituents of the up and down quarks making up atomic nuclei. They noticed two
varieties of these spinning particles — socalled 'positive' and ‘negative’ UPAs
(Fig. 2), one the
mirror image of the other. Both consist of ten closed curves, or ‘whorls,’
each of which spirals five times around the axis of spin, making 2½ revolutions as it
spirals down from the broad
2
top of the particle to its pointed end and then 2½ revolutions in a narrower
helix as it returns to its top. According to Leadbeater, a whorl is a helical coil with 1680
turns. It was interpreted in Reference 1 as a closed, stringlike curve embedded in
26dimensional spacetime. It was proposed (3) in Articles 2 & 5 that the
superstring is formed by the wrapping of an 11brane around ten compactified dimensions of
this spacetime beyond the tendimensional spacetime required by superstring theory. This
creates ten closed curves, each characterised by 25 spatial coordinate variables, so that
the total number of spacetime coordinate variables for the ten whorls making up a
superstring is 10×25 + 1 = 251.
The top of the 41tree in CTOL is the 251st SL. The top of the
49tree is the 299th SL. The 251st SL is therefore the 49th from the top of
the 49th tree. Since the 49th tree from the top of CTOL is the 43rd from its
bottom, the bottom of the 49th tree from the top of CTOL is also the bottom of the
43rd from the nadir of CTOL, i.e., the top of the 41st tree. The 251st SL is therefore both
the 49th from the top of the 49th tree and the bottom of the 49th
tree from the top of CTOL. This shows how the Godname EL ChAI of Yesod with number value
49 prescribes the 41tree. There are 251 SLs beyond the 7tree in 49
overlapping trees, just as there are 251 SLs in CTOL beyond the 49tree. The section
of the 49tree above the 7tree is to the latter what the section of CTOL
representing cosmic superphysical planes is to the cosmic physical plane. Just as the number
251 is the number of emanations of the six Sephiroth of Construction above Malkuth before
the cosmic physical plane is reached, as well as the number of their emanations above the
physical plane, so, too, this number is the number of degrees of freedom expressing the
geometry of the subquark state of the superstring. Section 2 will discuss its encoding in
the inner form of the Tree of Life. Its remarkable encoding in the lowest tree of CTOL
representing Malkuth will be discussed in Section 3.
With all its triangles turned into tetractyses, the number of yods in the
ntree is given by Y(n) = 50n + 30.
Y(n+5) – Y(n) = 5×50 = 250,
i.e., five successive trees contain 250 yods. As the number of SLs in the
ntree is
S(n) = 6n + 5,
there are S(n+5) – S(n) = 6×5 = 30 SLs in every five trees, i.e., counting from
the top of the (n+5)th tree to the top of the nth tree, there are 31 SLs and 251 yods
in every five trees (Fig. 3).
This shows how the Godname EL of Chesed with number value 31 prescribes the number
251.
The Godname EHYEH of Kether prescribes the numbers 41 and 251 because 41 is the
21st odd integer and 251 is the 126th odd integer, where 126 is the sum of the number
values of all different combinations of the letters of EHYEH:

AHIH
A+H+I
AH + AI + HI + HH
AHI + AHH + HIH
AHIH
Total

(A = 1, H = 5, I = 10)
= 16
= 42
= 47
= 21 = 126

The 251st SL is the 127th tree level (4), where 127 is the 31st prime number. This shows
how EL prescribes the 41tree. As CTOL has 276 tree levels (5), the 251st SL is the 150th tree level from the top of
CTOL, where 150 = 15×10. This shows how the number value 15 of YAH
determines the 41tree. Also, 41 = 26 + 15, where 26 is the number of
YAHWEH, the full Godname of Chokmah. There are 167 stages of vertical descent of the
Lightning Flash from Kether of the 41st tree (6), that is, 168 stages of descent of the
Lightning Flash from Geburah of the 42nd tree generate the 251 SLs in the 41tree. As shown
in Article 5, this is an example of the close association between the
number 251 and the number 168 of the Mundane Chakra of Malkuth — a structural
parameter of the superstring (see previous articles).
The 41st tree in CTOL is the 51st from its top. 51 is the 26th odd
integer, showing how YAHWEH prescribes the 41tree. 50 trees extend above it,
indicating how ELOHIM, the Godname of Binah with number value 50, prescribes this
section of CTOL. ELOHIM prescribes the number 251 because below the highest Binah of
50 overlapping trees are 2510 (=251×10) yods (7).
The 251 SLs of the 41tree comprise the 11 SLs of the 1tree and 240 SLs in
the 40 trees above the latter. As Kether of the 41st tree is the 85th SL on the Pillar of
Equilibrium and as Kether of the first tree is the fifth SL on this pillar, the 240 SLs
comprise 80 SLs on the central pillar and 160 SLs on the two side pillars, where
80 is the number value of Yesod (“Foundation”). This 160:80 differentiation of
the number 240 has its analogy in the UPA/superstring. There are 160 (10×16) coordinate
variables of the ten whorls of the superstring in the 16dimensional space beyond
superstring spacetime and 80 (10×8) transverse coordinate variables in relation to
the latter, each whorl having eight transverse dimensions in the tendimensional spacetime
in which they exist as such. The 11 SLs belonging to the 1tree correspond to the ten
longitudinal coordinate variables of the ten whorls (their extension in ordinary space),
whilst the 240 SLs in the 41tree above the 1tree correspond to the 240 transverse
coordinate variables of the ten whorls, each one having 24 transverse coordinate
variables. This means that the three thicker, socalled ‘major’ whorls in the particle
described by Besant and Leadbeater are curves with 72 such variables and
that the remaining seven, socalled ‘minor’ whorls (see Fig. 2) are strings with
168 coordinate variables.
The 29tree has S(29) = 179 SLs. The top of the 29th tree is the 91st tree
level (8), i.e, the 84th above
the 1tree, which has seven tree levels. According to Article 2 (9), the 26th tree level
(50th SL) is the dimension of time. The 179th SL is both the
129th SL and the 65th tree level above the
50th SL. It is also the 168th SL above the 1tree.
There are 72 SLs in the 41tree above the 29tree: 251 – 179 =
72. The division:
240 = 72 + 168
is therefore prescribed by ELOHIM and ADONAI, Godname of Malkuth. The
division:
127 = 26 + 101
between the 26 tree levels defining
26dimensional spacetime and the 101 higher tree levels
up to the top of the 41st tree is defined by YAHWEH because 101 is the
26th prime number.
The top of the 16tree is the 101st SL and the 52nd tree
level (10), where 52 is the
26th even integer. This is the 76th tree level from the
top of the 41tree and the 90th SL from the top of the 1tree. This shows how YAHWEH ELOHIM
with number value 76 defines the division:
168 = 78 + 90
that mirrors how the number value 168 of Cholem
Yesodeth, the Mundane Chakra of Malkuth, divides into
4
78 and 90, the component number values of, respectively, the two words
Cholem and Yesodeth:
Fortyone overlapping trees have 496 triangles (11). Remarkably, the number of
Malkuth and the dimension of the superstring symmetry groups is embodied in 41 trees as the
number of simplest shapes creatingtheir 3dimensional structure, these shapes being
marked out by the 250 corners of their triangles. This should be compared with the
fact that an heterotic superstring with 250 spatial coordinate variables possessed by its
ten whorls is the source of 496 gauge bosons transmitting the unified,
E_{8}×E_{8} or SO(32)symmetric, superstring force. That such a number
central to superstring physics should occur in a section of CTOL whose structure has
already been shown to be analogous to the tenfold superstring is no accident. Instead,
it is an example of the way in which ‘analogous sections of CTOL encode the same parameters
characterising holistic systems, such as 251 and 496 (see Article 5 for more examples).
The 12 trees extending beyond the 29tree to the 41st tree have 72
SLs and the 28 trees extending beyond the 1tree to the 29th tree have 168 SLs. This
72:168 differentiation corresponds in the superstring described by Besant and
Leadbeater to the 72 E_{8} gauge charges carried by the superstring in its
three major whorls, 24 spread out over each whorl, and to the 168 gauge charges
similarly carried by the superstring in its seven minor whorls. E_{8} has the
exceptional subgroup E_{6}, studied as physicists as a possible symmetry group that
accommodates the Standard Model of particle physics. It has 72 roots and six simple
roots, whilst E_{8} has 240 roots and eight simple roots, that is, 168 more
roots than E_{6}. Symmetry breaking of E_{8} into E_{6} may account
for the difference between the major and minor whorls if each whorl does, indeed, carry 24
of the 240 E_{8} gauge charges, 72 of which are gauge charges of
E_{6}.
The 22tree has 137 SLs, of which 126 are above the 1tree. They include the
72 SLs of the 13tree above the 1tree. 72 is the number of roots of
E_{6}, which is a subgroup of E_{7}, an exceptional subgroup of
E_{8} with 126 roots. The top of the 22tree is the 70th tree level and the 91st
stage of descent of the Lightning Flash. The differentiation:
240:126:72
between the roots of E_{8}, E_{7} and E_{6} corresponds
to the number of SLs in, respectively, the 41tree, the 22tree and the 13tree that are
above the 1tree.
Chesed of the 23rd tree is the 139th SL and the 128th SL above the 1tree,
above which are 112 SLs to the top of the 41tree. The next higher SL (Daath of the
23rd tree) is the 140th SL and the 48th SL on the central pillar. The
112th SL from the top of the 41tree is therefore both the 140th SL and the
48th SL on the central pillar. This 128:112 division of SLs corresponds to the
128:112 differentiation of the 240 roots of E_{8} that is known to
mathematicians. It is therefore prescribed by the number value 140 of
Malachim, the Angelic Order assigned to Tiphareth, the number value 48 of
Kokab, the Mundane Chakra of Hod and the number value 112 of Beni
Elohim, the Order of Angels assigned to Hod. In fact, this differentiation is found to
be defined by the number values of all the Godnames, Archangelic Names, Angelic Names
and Mundane Chakras because it is a property of any Tree of Life pattern. Indeed, the
sum of the first four Godnames EHYEH, YAHWEH, ELOHIM & EL is 128 and the sum of the next
two Godnames ELOHA and YAHWEH ELOHIM is 112.
The 251 SLs of the 41tree comprise 91 SLs up to Chesed of the 15th
tree and 160 SLs beyond it. The former consists of 60 SLs on the side pillars and 31
SLs on the central pillar. The divisions:
251 = 91 + 160
and
91 = 31 + 60
correspond in the superstring to the 31 spacetime coordinate
variables of its ten whorls in 4dimensional spacetime, to their 60 coordinate variables
defined in the 6dimensional compactified space of superstring spacetime and to their 160
coordinate variables defined in the higher, 16dimensional space outside superstring
spacetime. This is how the Godname YAH with number value 15 and the Godname EL with
number value 31 prescribe visàvis, respectively, 10 and 4dimensional spacetime
the number of spacetime coordinates of its ten whorls.
YAH and YAHWEH prescribe the division of the 251 coordinate variables into
(10×10 + 1 = 101) spacetime coordinate variables defined visàvis 11dimensional,
supergravity spacetime and 150 (=15×10) variables defined in the higher,
15dimensional space because 15 is the number value of YAH and 101 is
the 26th prime number, where 26 is the number value of YAHWEH. The division is
prescribed also by ELOHIM because there are 50 SLs on the central pillar in the
41tree above the 101st SL, whilst 101 is the 50th odd integer after 1.
YAHWEH ELOHIM with number value 76 prescribes this division because the 101st
SL is the 151st SL from the top of the 41tree, where 151 is the 76th odd integer.
The 101st SL is also the 76th tree level from the top of the 41tree.
5
ELOHA prescribes the division of the 240 SLs in the 41tree above the 1tree
into the 168 SLs of the 29tree above the 1tree and the 72 SLs above the
29tree because its number value 36 is the number of tree levels in the 41tree above
the 29tree: 127 – 91 = 36.
Counting from the highest (adi) plane, the 41st tree represents the second
subplane of the second plane—the Theosophists’ anupadaka plane. Its Kether — the 251st SL —
is the Malkuth of the 43rd tree representing the lowest subplane of the adi plane. The 251st
SL therefore denotes the lowest (Malkuth) level of the lowest subplane of this plane. As the
lowest point of the highest 49 trees in CTOL, this SL represents the
completion of a cycle of 7fold differentiation in the emanation of each of the seven
Sephiroth of Construction. Although the 49tree is itself such a cycle, only trees
43–49 belong to both cycles, whilst the 251st SL is the last SL of the uppermost
49 trees to be part of the emanation of both cycles. It is this property that
makes the 41tree and its highest point unique.
2. The inner form of the Tree of
Life The Tree of Life has an inner as well as an outer form (Fig. 4). The former consists of two
identical sets of seven regular polygons that enfold in one another and share their root
edge (Fig. 5). As was pointed
out in previous articles, the seven polygons encode the 49tree representing the
cosmic physical plane and the five polygons in the other set with most corners encode the 42
trees of CTOL representing the six superphysical planes. It is remarkable that their
composition is such that the five polygons with the least number of corners (the
first five separate polygons containing 26 corners) encode the lowest 26 trees
of CTOL that bear a formal correspondence to the lowest 26 tree levels denoting the
26 dimensions of spacetime, whilst the five separate polygons in the set of seven
with the largest number of corners (the last five) have 41 corners and 251 yods
(Fig. 6), that is, they encode
the 41tree with 251 SLs — the very number of spacetime coordinates of ten whorls in
26dimensional spacetime! The reason why the five largest polygons
encode this structural parameter of strings is that they constitute a new Tree of
Life pattern prescribed by the ten Godnames, as now shown. Their properties are set out
below:

pentagon

hexagon

octagon

decagon

dodecagon

5 separate polygons 1. Number of corners of 5 polygons = 41 =
21st odd integer.
6
2. Number of corners of 41 tetractyses in 5 polygons = 41 + 5 = 46 (=
48, including the separate root edge);
3. Number of sides of 5 polygon = 41;
4. Number of edges of 41 tetractyses = 2×41 = 82;
5. Number of corners + edges of tetractyses = 46 + 82 = 128 (= 131,
including the separate root edge);
6. Number of corners + edges + triangles = 128 + 41 = 169;
7. Number of yods = 251;
8. Number of yods other than corners = 251 – 41 = 210 = 21×10;
9. Number of yods along boundaries of polygons = 3×41 = 123 (127, including
the separate root edge; 127 = 31st prime number). Number of boundary yods in (5+5)
polygons = 2×123 = 246;
10. Number of yods along edges of tetractyses = 5×41 + 5 = 210 =
21×10;
11. When the five separate polygons become enfolded, four of their edges
coincide with the fifth, so that (4×2=8) corners, four edges and (4×4=16) yods (including
(4×2=8) hexagonal yods) disappear, whilst a corner of the pentagon coincides with the centre
of the decagon.
5 enfolded polygons 1. Number of corners = 41 – 8 = 33 (31
outside root edge);
2. Number of corners of 41 tetractyses = 33 + 4 = 37 (35 outside root
edge);
3. Number of sides of 5 polygons = 41 – 4 = 37 (36 outside root
edge);
4. Number of corners + sides of polygons = 33 + 37 = 70 (67 outside
root edge);
5. Number of edges of tetractyses = 82 – 4 = 78 (77 outside root edge);
6. Number of corners + edges of tetractyses = 37 + 78 = 115 (112
outside root edge);
7. Number of corners, edges + triangles = 115 + 41 = 156 (153 outside
root edge, where 153 = 76th odd integer after 1);
8. Number of yods = 251 – 16 – 1 = 234 (230 outside root edge);
9. Number of yods other than corners = 234 – 33 = 201 (199 outside root
edge). 201 = 101st odd integer, where 101 = 26th prime number;
10. Number of yods along boundaries of 5 polygons = 37×2 + 33 = 107 (103
outside root edge, of which (103 – 31 = 72) are not corners);
11. Number of yods along boundaries of tetractyses = 3×33 + 2×37 + 4 = 177
(173 outside root edge; 173 = 87th odd integer).
(5+5) polygons have (2×31 + 2 = 64) corners (62 outside
the root edge), (2×35 + 2 = 72) corners of 82 tetractyses (36 per set of 5
polygons), (2×36 + 1 = 73) sides of polygons (73 =
21st prime number), (2×77 + 1 = 155) edges of tetractyses, (2×112 + 3 =
227) corners + edges (227 = 49th prime number), (2×153 + 3 = 309) corners,
edges + triangles (309 = 155th odd integer), (2×230 + 4 = 464) yods and (2×199 + 2 =
400) yods other than corners. They also have (2×103 + 4 = 210 = 21×10) yods along
their 73 sides.
Below is shown how the number values of the ten Godnames quantify these
properties:

HOW GODNAMES PRESCRIBE THE 5 POLYGONS

Kether: 21

Number of corners of 5 polygons = 41 = 21st odd
integer;
Number of yods other than corners = 251 – 41 = 210 = 21×10;
Number of yods along edges of tetractyses = 5×41 + 5 = 210 = 21×10;
21st prime number = 73 = number of sides of (5+5) enfolded polygons;

Chokmah: 26

Number of yods other than corners = 234 – 33 =
201 (199 outside root edge). 201 = 101st odd integer, where 101 =
26th prime number; 
Binah: 50

50 yods in root edge and at corners and centres of 5 separate polygons;

Chesed: 31

31st prime number = 127 = number
of yods along boundaries of 5 separate polygons and root edge; 31 corners
outside root edge of 5 enfolded polygons; 
Geburah: 36

36 sides of 5 enfolded polygons outside root edge; 72 corners of
(5+5) polygons (72 = 36th

7

even integer); 
Tiphareth: 76 
76th odd integer after 1 = 153 = number of corners,
edges & triangular sectors of 5 enfolded polygons outside their root edge; 
Netzach: 129 
130 corners and edges of tetractyses in 5 separate polygons, including
the root edge and its corner associated with this set. 130 = 129th integer
after 1 ; 
Hod: 153 
153 triangles, corners & edges of tetractyses outside
root edge of 5 enfolded polygons; 
Yesod: 49 
49th prime number = 227 = number of corners and edges of
(5+5) enfolded polygons; 
Malkuth: 155 
155 edges of tetractyses of (5+5) enfolded polygons. 155
geometrical elements are intrinsic to the 5 enfolded polygons, the topmost corner
of the hexagon being shared with the hexagon enfolded in the next higher Tree of
Life. 
The last example of Godnames prescribing the properties of this Tree of Life
pattern of (5+5) enfolded polygons is particularly remarkable because it convincingly
demonstrates how the character of each prescription is consistent with the metaphysical
nature of the Sephirah. In this case, the Godname ADONAI MELEKH of Malkuth, signifying the
outer form of the Tree of Life, determines the shapes of the two sets of five
regular polygons in terms of either their 155 edges or the 155 intrinsic
geometrical elements per set.
3. Encoding of the 41tree in the
1tree
As the lowest tree in CTOL, the 1tree has a formal correspondence to the
last Sephirah, Malkuth. Figure
7 shows that, when each of its 19 triangles is divided into their three sectors
which are then turned into tetractyses, the resulting 57 tetractyses contain 251 yods. They
comprise the 11 yods at the corners of the triangles, i.e., SLs, and 240 yods created by the
construction of each triangle from three tetractyses. They are the counterpart of the 11 SLs
of the 1tree and the 140 higher SLs in the 41tree. As shown in Article 4, the
Godnames of the ten Sephiroth prescribe not only the seven regular polygons enfolded in the
Tree of Life but also a new pattern comprising the first six polygons of this set.
Associated with each overlapping
8
tree in CTOL are seven enfolded, regular polygons, the first six of which
have 26 corners prescribed by YAHWEH (see Article 4 for how all the Godnames
prescribe the first six polygons). Of these, the uppermost and lowermost corners of the
hexagon are joined to their counterparts in adjacent hexagons, which means that there are 25
independent corners of the first six polygons per set. Enfolded in the lowest ten trees,
which are prescribed by ADONAI because its number value 65 is the number of their
SLs, are 60 polygons of the first six types with 10×25 + 1 = 251 corners. These corners
denote the spacetime coordinate variables of the ten whorls of the UPA/superstring, there
being 25 spatial ones per whorl.
Properties of the 1tree, 41tree and the 60 polygons enfolded in the 10tree
are compared below:
PARALLELS BETWEEN 1TREE, 41TREE & 60 POLYGONS ENFOLDED IN 10TREE
1tree

41tree

60 polygons

1. 251 yods in 19 triangles whose sectors are tetractyses; 
251 SLs; 
251 corners of first 6 polygons enfolded in 10tree; 
2. 251 yods comprise 11 corners of 19 triangles and 240 others. 
251 SLs comprise 11 SLs of 1tree and 240 SLs above it. 
251 corners comprise 11 corners of 10 hexagons and 240 corners of 60
polygons. 
The fact that the 251 corners of the 60 polygons enfolded on one side of the
10tree 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 41tree are
analogous to these corners, the 40 trees of the 41tree above the 1tree 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 41tree have 72 SLs
corresponding to the 72 transverse coordinate variables of the three major whorls of
the basic unit of matter described by Besant and Leadbeater and that the lowest 29 trees
have 168 SLs corresponding to the 168 transverse coordinate variables of the
seven strings that are the minor whorls. The latter SLs span 84 tree levels, where
84 = 1^{2} + 3^{2} + 5^{2} + 7^{2}.
This illustrates the powerful Tetrad Principle, formulated in Article 1
(12). The 11 SLs of the 1tree
correspond to the 11 uppermost and lowermost corners of the ten hexagons enfolded in the
10tree. The lowest corner of the one enfolded in the 1tree is distinct from the rest in
that it does not share its position with corners of other hexagons. This corner denotes the
time coordinate of the superstring, whilst the uppermost corner of each hexagon denotes the
longitudinal space coordinate of a whorl represented by the corresponding tree. This
difference between the ten space coordinate variables and the time coordinate corresponds
in the 1tree to the ten SLs and Daath, which, being Yesod of the second tree, is
9
an SL only of that tree, not the first tree. Such an exact, fourway
correspondence:
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.
4. Conclusion
The interpretation of the fundamental unit of matter observed clairvoyantly
by Annie Besant and C.W. Leadbeater as the superstring constituent of up and down quarks
implies that the superstring is a more complicated object than the simple picture of a
closed string considered by physicists before socalled ‘nbranes’ and ‘Mtheory’ ushered in
the second revolution in string theory. Although consistent with the superstring prediction
of a compactified, 6dimensional space because the six higherorder spirillae of each whorl
wind around these dimensions, the stringy, tenfold whorls of the particle require it to be
a higherdimensional membrane as well. If this exists in the 26dimensional
spacetime predicted by quantum mechanics for spinless strings, 251 spacetime coordinate
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 11brane 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
higherdimensional 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 centuryold, 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 afterlife 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.’
