Torah Mysticism and Parallel Terms
by Walter York December 28, 2000

There has been great progress in the field of Bible coding. With each new advancement in software and coding techniques, critics have done their best to discount the validity and importance of these gains. Often times these critics have been correct in their challenges; but as techniques and software become more complicated, so then is the task of the critic more complicated.

I heard one critic say that CodeFinder: Millennium Edition software “. . . has advanced to the point that you can get it to say anything that you want it to.” How did I answer that person? I told him, “Yes, but that only forces the serious coder to look deeper into the codes – into matrix construction, and things such as parallel terms and three dimensional coding.”

With faster computers and increases in the speed of coding software, finds that would have been significant before are now commonplace. New innovations in evaluating results that have been made by Dr. Haralick (webmaster note: chairman of the International Torah Codes Society) and others have portrayed results in a more realistic light. As a result of these improvements, a new eye has been trained on the codes – an eye that uses the new technologies in an effort to sort out the truth from the fiction as they relate to the Bible codes.

The Hebrew language lends itself to the codes. What I mean by this is that in a vowel-less language – and one where there are many root words and many ways to articulate a thought – any block of script continuum will have a myriad of messages. The question then arises, “how do you know which thought phrases relate to which others?” Mostly folks just do this by intuition. They create an array, and then relate the thought phrases that they CHOOSE with other thought phrases that THEY HAVE CHOSEN. Well . . . that is, I suppose, the easiest way. But certainly, another can come after you, take the same block of characters, and make it say WHAT THEY WANT IT TO. And then the critics come along and say, “ . . . you can get it to say anything that you want it to.” Well . . . maybe they’re right.

I just got off the phone with Roy (your website host). He and I share a lot of ideas about the codes and are both interested in the relationship of parallel terms in an array. He said, “Hey, Walt, maybe you should do a little article on parallel terms; you can use that Pleiades matrix.” After I got his assurance that he would print the article as is (no censorship), I agreed.

Lately I have been coding the precepts of the Book of Revelation. The array that is included is part of a larger matrix. It is a low-skipper; but I do a lot of high skip stuff (wrapped Torah)[webmaster note: a toroidal search text]; and I believe that the +100K matrixes are just as valid (in the Torah) as is the low skip stuff. I didn’t include any + one terms, but I believe that they can be important in an array – especially if it is a term or phrase that is used once or seldom. Also, + one terms do not have to have the same word breaks or meaning as does the open text.

In the matrix report below, the parallel terms are listed. Parallel 1 is the second from the right and is the main term. It relates to it’s parallel (term 2). Each parallel forms a related phrase that can be joined. The same goes for parallel terms 3 and 4. They form related phrases that can be joined. I included one term that was related to the second parallel pair. It is at -2 and shares a resh with Caesar. [webmaster note: scroll to the right in the matrix below to see the parallel term]


There is another concern that needs to be addressed concerning the codes. As concerning theology, people code the scenarios that they tend to give credence to. Obviously, I adhere to the Nero Caesar scenario of the Revelation. If I hadn’t put Nero Caesar in, I wouldn’t have gotten a match. I also lean towards the Davidic messiah. If I hadn’t coded him, then I wouldn’t have gotten a match. A wise old Doc once said that if the codes are real then we will eventually get to the point where it will be undisputable and there will be no question of it. The folks that are serious about the codes are working towards that end.

I believe that the codes are real; it’s just that they are more complicated than was originally asserted. I also believe that parallel terms MIGHT be one of the keys to unlocking the codes. Well . . . it seems to be working for me.

Webmaster note: regardless of the content of the above matrix, what it shows is an important concept. One is that long terms in the Bible code may not be rare at all. Secondly, Walter is proposing that long parallel terms are topically related. This concept is important if proven through further research.

The picture on the left is a model, simulating what Walter may or may not look like. (a joke). Since Walter and I have never met in person, I don't know what he really looks like. :-)
