This section explores the Matrix of Meaning for the Hebrew Alphabet. The 27-letters of the Hebrew Alphabet (22 medial letters, plus 5 final-letter forms) are traditionally arranged in three layers of nine letters each. The first set of nine, Alef through Tet, represents the Archetypal; the second letter, Yod through Tzadi, represents the Inner/Spiritual; and the third represents the Outer/Physical.
Illustrations in this section make use of letter-icons, one for each Hebrew letter. These icons contain keywords about each letter, designed to aid in remembering its logical placement in the Matrix of Meaning.
The most important quality of the posters and discussion in this section is that they demonstrate the operational meaning of each letter in relationship to the other letters, based on a natural model of unity — the hypersphere. At the abstract level, the 27-letters correspond to the basic pointing directions in hyperdimensional space; in principle, any quantum state vector can be specified by a combination of these pointing directions. At the personal level, the 22 letter-gestures (in the section elsewhere on this site, on Hebrew Alphabet Gesture Posters) can be used to project meaning from one's mind into the world. In many cases, spelling Hebrew root words by means of these gestures directly demonstrates the functional meaning of the word.
A dictionary of examples, and samples of correspondences between Hebrew and English words is possible, and will be presented when it's available.
Some of these posters were used in our videotape presentation, A Matrix of Meaning for Sacred Alphabets; some are from the Meru Foundation Journal, Torus, Vol. 2 #4. New material will be added as available.
