ADONAI (Hebrew: אדני, ADNI), the Godname of Malkuth with number value 65, prescribes the 10-tree with 65 SLs. In fact, its very letter values: A = א = 1, D = 4 = ד, N = 50 = נ and I = 10 = י are the numbers of SLs of various types in the 10-tree (see diagram). The 10-tree is equivalent to a decagon with tetractys sectors drawn inside a square. The number 65 is the sum of the first 10 integers after 1:</p>65 = 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11.</p>The 10-tree contains 127 triangles, where 127 is the 31st prime number. This shows how EL, the Godname of Chesed with number value 31, prescribes the 10-tree. The 127 triangles have 169 sides. Their (3×127=381) sectors have (65+127=192) corners with (3×127 + 169 = 550) sides. Embodied, therefore, in the 10-tree are two numbers, 192 and 550, that are characteristic parameters of holistic systems (see The holistic pattern). The 10-tree embodies the very number of SLs in CTOL! As we shall discover in the section Superstrings as sacred geometry/Tree of Life, it also embodies the primary structural parameter 1680 of the subquark state of the E8×E8heterotic superstring. This shows how ADONAI prescribes the helical form of each of the ten whorls of the UPA/subquark, the ten overlapping Trees of Life representing the ten spatial dimensions in 11-dimensional space-time. It is an example of a sacred-geometrical context manifesting the gematria number values of both the Godname (65) and Mundane Chakra (168) of the same Sephirah. It is implausible in the extreme to dismiss this as due to chance, particularly when this very number 1680 appeared in the century-old description (see here) by C.W. Leadbeater of the whorls of the UPA (another coincidence, according to this view!). It is tantamount to appealing to the miraculous to argue that the possession by the 10-tree of the holistic parameter 550 could be coincidental as well. Clearly, it is an untenable way of accounting for such remarkable properties in order to avoid having to admit that the Tree of Life is, indeed, the cosmic blueprint, as Kabbalists have always claimed, although, of course, not on the basis of any of the hard, mathematical evidence presented in this website.
The embodiment of the number 550 in the geometry of the 10-tree as the 550 sides of the 381 sectors of its 127 triangles is discussed here as one of the examples of how it manifests in objects possessing sacred geometry. See case (g) in the discussion</a></a>
