Meru Foundation's Research

The Meru Project is based on 30 years of research by Stan Tenen into the origin and nature of the Hebrew alphabet, and the mathematical structure underlying the sequence of letters of the Hebrew text of Genesis. The Project is sponsored by the Meru Foundation, registered California 501(c)(3) private nonprofit research and educational corporation founded in 1983.

From the Introductory Text:

"The Meru Project has discovered an extraordinary and unexpected geometric metaphor in the letter-sequence of the Hebrew text of Genesis that underlies and is held in common by the spiritual traditions of the ancient world. This metaphor models embryonic growth and self-organization. It applies to all whole systems, including those as seemingly diverse as meditational practices and the mathematics fundamental to physics and cosmology...Meru Project findings demonstrate that the relationship between physical theory and consciousness, expressed in explicit geometric metaphor, was understood and developed several thousand years ago."

Meru's library of animations now includes two VRML renderings by Vincent Cunetto:
An alternate view of the 3,10 torus knot,
and the 3-Around-1 and 1-Around 3 double knot,

Attention German-Language Readers!

Ron Engert, editor of Tattva Viveka magazine, has translated and published

He has now posted these articles to the Internet, on a special German website 
he has created which is dedicated to information about Meru Foundation:

These articles include The God of Abraham: A Mathematician's View, and the only published version of Stan's essay on the

PLAGIARISM NOTICE UPDATE SEPTEMBER 1998
For the past 10 years, Meru Foundation's original "flame-letter" sculptures have been misused, abused, and misrepresented by a self-promoting plagiarist who masquerades as a scientist, and who is obsessed with the golden mean spiral. Forced association with this aggressive plagiarist, and his odd, untrue, and unscientific claims, has damaged our work and our reputation. Based on its review of the evidence, the United States Federal Court for the Western District of New York at Rochester has now adjudicated our copyrights as valid and enforceable, has found that the plagiarist acted willfully and maliciously, and has provided us with proper remedies. The plagiarist and his associates also created false and disparaging personal and work histories, anti-Semitic characterizations, false claims of harassment, and even falsified mathematics to rationalize their behavior. All of these claims were dismissed "with prejudice" by the court.

The court-adjudicated Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law, and Order, call for the maintenance of a public Corrective Notice on the Internet.

To view the Corrective Notice and for further legal information:    click here.

For the titles of works containing plagiarized material, as they are listed in the 
court-adjudicated Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law, and Order:    click here.

Thank you all for your patience, your understanding, and your support of the integrity of Meru's work.
