Superstring theory predicts that space-time has ten dimensions. Suppose, therefore, that each
dimension is represented by an overlapping Tree of Life. Then let each triangle be turned into a tetractys.
Counting from the bottom of the lowest Tree, there are **248** red yods up to Chesed of the fifth
Tree and another **248** blue yods up to (but not including) Chesed of the tenth Tree.
Kabbalistically speaking, the ten Trees are a complete representation of the ten Sephiroth of the Tree of Life. The
ten dimensions of space-time are the physical manifestation of this cosmic blueprint. The 5:5 division of the ten
Sephiroth is responsible for the direct product nature of the superstring gauge symmetry group
E_{8}×E_{8} because the **248** red & purple yods as far as Chesed of
the fifth Tree symbolize the **248** roots of E_{8} and the
**248** blue yods above it as far as Chesed of the highest Tree symbolize the
**248** roots of the second group E_{8}. The Godname EL prescribes this division of the
**496** yods into two equal sets of **248** yods because Chesed of the fifth
Tree (the half-way point) is the **31**st Sephirothic level (SL) and **31** is the
number value of EL.

The first Tree of Life contains **80** purple yods. This is the number of
Yesod, meaning "foundation," which is appropriate for the *lowest* Tree in the Cosmic Tree of Life.
This means that there are **168** red yods above it to the **31**st SL. The
division:

**248** = **80** + **168**

is characteristic of holistic systems embodying the number **248**. For example,
comparing the {3,7} tessellation of the Klein Configuration on the 3-torus with the Tree of Life, we found in
Article 43 that, with single tetractyses as their faces, the four triangular
prisms and six square antiprisms that can be joined together to form a 3-torus are composed of 56 tetractyses
with **248** yods that are made up of **80** corners & centres and
**168** hexagonal yods (see Fig. 15 in Article 43).
