The disdyakis triacontahedron has **62** vertices that consist of 30 A vertices
(red dot), 12 B vertices (blue dot) and 20 C vertices (yellow dot). The B vertices are vertices of an icosahedron
and the C vertices are the vertices of a dodecahedron. Surrounding an axis that passes through two diametrically
opposite C vertices (pink dots) and the centre of the polyhedron (white dot) are 180 edges & 120 triangular
faces, i.e., 300 edges & triangles. The polyhedron consists of (**62**+300=362) vertices, edges
& triangles. Including its centre, there are **363** geometrical elements. This is the number
value of SHADDAI EL CHAI ("Almighty Living God"), the complete Godname of Yesod, which is the penultimate Sephirah
of the Tree of Life. EL CHAI with number value **49** prescribes the centre (E = 1), the 30 A vertices
(L = 30) and 18 C vertices (CHAI = 18) surrounding the axis. The value 300 of the letter shin
(ש) in
SHADDAI is the number of edges & triangles. The sum (14) of the letters daleth (ד) and yod (י) in SHADDAI is the sum
of the number of B vertices (yellow dots) and the number of C vertices (pink dots) at the north & south
poles of the polyhedron.

Such *detailed* correspondence between the values of the letters making up an
ancient Hebrew Name of God and numbers of geometrical elements refutes as highly improbable the suggestion that it
could be coincidence that the geometry of the disdyakis triacontahedron embodies the number of SHADDAI EL CHAI.
Instead, it is a clear illustration of how the Godnames of the ten Sephiroth prescribe the mathematical properties
of this extraordinary object — the polyhedral representation of the outer form of the Tree of Life. Indeed, the
simplest example of this is the fact that each half of this polyhedron comprises **31** vertices (one
vertex acting as its pole & 30 other vertices). This is the number value of EL (אל), the
Godname of Chesed, meaning "God." The letter alef (E = 1) denotes a pole and the letter lamed (L = 30) denotes the
30 other vertices in each half.
