The square also embodies the dimension **248** of E_{8} because,
when its sectors are 2nd-order tetractyses, **248** coloured yods symbolizing Sephiroth of
Construction surround its centre.

The 40 tetractyses have 41 corners, where 41 is the **21**st odd integer, showing
how the Divine Name EHYEH ("I am") with number value **21** prescribes the dimension
**248** of E_{8}.

The total number of yods surrounding the centre of the square is 288, where

288 = 1^{1} + 2^{2} + 3^{3} + 4^{4}.

This is another beautiful illustration of how the integers 1, 2, 3 & 4 symbolized by the four rows of dots in the Pythagorean tetractys express the properties of sacred geometries, e.g., 288 yods surround the centres of the seven regular polygons making up the inner form of the Tree of Life, whilst 288 yods line the boundaries of the (7+7) separate polygons (see here).
