Outer & inner Tree of Life representation of CTOL
The outer Tree of Life contains 70 yods when its 16 triangles become tetractyses. Seven yods lining each side pillar and two hexagonal yods on the Path connecting Chesed and Geburah (that is, the 16 black yods in the diagram opposite) are shared with the (7+7) enfolded polygons, which have 524 yods. Therefore, (70−16=54) yods belonging to the outer Tree are intrinsic to it. They include four yods located at the Sephiroth Kether, Tiphareth, Yesod & Malkuth, leaving 50 intrinsic yods that are not located at Sephiroth, where 50 is the number value of ELOHIM, the Godname of Binah. The (7+7) enfolded polygons have (524−16=508) yods that are intrinsic to them. Eight of these are purple centres of polygons (the centres of the two decagons are not included because they are also corners of the pentagons; the centres of the triangles belonging to the inner Tree coincide with the two hexagonal yods on the Chesed-Geburah Path and so are shared with the outer Tree). Therefore, (508−8=500=50×10) intrinsic yods surround the centres of the polygons. The outer and inner Trees of Life have (50+500=550) intrinsic yods that are neither Sephiroth nor centres of polygons. Each set of seven enfolded polygons has 248 intrinsic yods outside their root edge that surround their centres, that is, both sets have 496 such yods. 248 is the number value of Raziel, the Archangel of Chokmah, and 496 is both the number value of Malkuth (the physical universe, cosmically speaking) and the dimension of the superstring gauge symmetry groups SO(32) and E8×E8. The mirror symmetry of the two sets of seven enfolded polygons of the inner Tree of Life is responsible for the existence of two identical groups E8.
The 550 yods other than Sephiroth and centres of polygons that are intrinsic to the outer and inner Trees of Life symbolize the 550 SLs of CTOL. The 50 intrinsic yods other than Sephiroth in the outer Tree denote the lowest 50 SLs up to Yesod of the ninth Tree. It is the 501st SL from the top of CTOL. The complete Godname of Kether is:
Its traditional translation is "I am that I am." The gematria number value 543 of this Godname measures the 543 SLs in CTOL down to Yesod of the second Tree — the last SL before the first Sephirah of Construction of the lowest Tree (see here). The number value 501 of ASHER is the number of SLs down to Yesod of the ninth Tree. The 500 SLs above it are symbolized by the 500 intrinsic yods surrounding the centres of all the polygons except the decagons, whilst the 50 SLs up to this SL are symbolized by the 50 intrinsic yods other than Sephiroth that belong to the outer Tree of Life and are coloured green in the adjacent diagram. The interpretation of what the number value of EHYEH ASHER EHYEH means in terms of CTOL is consistent with the geometries of the outer and inner Trees of Life because the 50 intrinsic yods of the former correspond to its lowest 50 SLs and the 500 intrinsic yods of the latter correspond to its highest 500 SLs.
Through its letter values, EHYEH (Hebrew: AHIH) specifies the ten Sephiroth (H=10) of the Tree of Life, Daath (A=1) and the five centres of each set of seven polygons (H=5) that do not coincide with any of their corners (see here). This means that the number 550 refers to the yods unshared by the combined outer and inner Trees of Life other than those specified by EHYEH.
What does the switch between the outer and inner Trees of Life mean in terms of CTOL? The 50th SL (Yesod of the eighth Tree), counting from its lowest point, is the 26th tree level (see Article 2). The lowest 25 tree levels signify the 25 spatial dimensions of the 26-dimensional space-time predicted by the quantum mechanics of spinless strings. The 26th tree level signifies the dimension of time. The switchover, therefore, represents the transition from the space-time continuum to non-temporal realms — from that part of CTOL where time exists to those levels of reality beyond space and time. The 248 intrinsic yods outside the root edge of one set of seven enfolded polygons correspond to the 248 SLs in CTOL down to Binah of the 50th Tree — the very Sephirah whose Godname number specifies the Tree to which it belongs! The 496 intrinsic yods outside the root edge of both sets of enfolded polygons correspond to the 496 SLs in CTOL down to Chesed of the ninth Tree. The remaining 54 yods consist of the four yods on the root edge and the 50 intrinsic yods in the outer Tree other than Sephiroth; they correspond to the four SLs from Geburah of the ninth Tree to Hod of this Tree and to the lowest 50 SLs up to Yesod of this Tree.
