The presence of Sower’s sevens argues for a common sponsor for all the ancient texts that have such common number patterns.
Now that a year has sped by since I discovered the Sower’s sevens, can I still call it a new discovery? I don’t see why not. Until it catches on, it is still news to most people.
The Sower’s sevens indicate that:
(1) The Bible is even less literal than you might think,
(2) the apostles names and appellations are a numerical construction and the apostles were not necessarily twelve, and
(3) the four books of the Gospel were originated or were edited by one party at some point in history, as certain number patterns occur across books and show up when the books are COMBINED (for loaves and fishes, apostles names and appellations, and genealogies of Jesus).
And lastly and most importantly, the presence of Sower’s sevens argues for a common sponsor for all the ancient texts that have such common number patterns.
There are hidden numerical patterns in the Hebrew Bible, in the New Testament, and in Of Aseneth (The Lost Gospel) which are all similar, that is, factors of 70 x 7 are revealed by application of Sower’s Parables numbers (100-60-30) to number sets in the texts. If we focus on the differences among these texts, we won’t readily recognize that all are similar in that their purpose was, at least in part, to rewrite Pagan myths or serve as a rallying point against them, and for monotheism. If the purpose of the texts and their numerical patterns are all similar, then where does that lead, but to an organization, a single organization, that sponsored them all. If not a group within the Jewish Sanhedrin, then some Jewish group not far from that. That is what the number patterns indicate.
Another possibility is that the math was perceived to be so “special,” among the ancients, that people from diverse backgrounds adopted it and incorporated it into their sacred scriptures. I write that a bit sarcastically, because how can the math be so “special” when all I get from my readers is a gigantic collective yawn? Granted I probably don’t know all there is to know about the Sower’s sevens, and so I don’t know why the ancients would consider them special. Possibly there is some relation to Pascal’s Triangle as I have explained here.
Unless the Sower’s sevens are unforgettable as well as special, the presence of the Sower’s sevens argues for a much shorter time frame for the development (or editing) of the ancient texts with such number patterns. Instead of a thousand years or more, maybe we are talking a few generations at most. After all, for how long can you sustain interest in Sower’s sevens and keep on putting them in documents? Not for long I bet. Especially considering, there has been so little attention to it here at my blog in the past year.
“He who has ears, let him hear.” Everybody else just keep on waiting for the sound bite.
The schools and the standards of learning have turned people into math-haters, people who flee from any kind of math, even something that might be fascinating to them.
To those who are so unappreciative as to say that numerology is “unscientific,” all I can say is that with the Sower’s sevens, I am not doing numerology; but rather, I am investigating specific number patterns in discrete number sets, using very conservative assumptions, and calculating the mathematical odds of gaining certain results. Anyone can look at the numbers and do the same thing, so the results are reproducible, and as scientific as anything can be with texts that are so ancient. The dictionary says numerology is study of the occult significance of numbers. What I am doing is studying an ancient mathematical system, not occult hocus pocus like reading tea leaves or predicting the future with a crystal ball.
The numbers tell us that the Bible is, at least in many passages, a numerical construction, and maybe not quite what we thought it was.
How likely is it that ten passages would just happen to have factors of 70 x 7? The odds are against it, by better than a quadrillion to one. Seems like the biblical authors deliberately put the numbers in there for us to find, as if it might mean something important to them. Actually, it does not bother me much to think that I may be the only one to know this or care.
But I get a chuckle thinking about preachers standing up on a Sunday and reading from the Bible, and being entirely clueless that some passages they are reading are mathematical formulations.
Well, maybe they’ll figure it out someday.
