A Question of Colel

Postby Pope Bob VIII » Mon Jan 28, 2013 3:03 pm

Is it ever permissible to add or subtract a colel from each word in a phrase?

I have been analysing the phrase HVA HVLK, He/It goes/walks, which equals 73, Gimel, and Chokmah without taking the value of kaph final (Sepher Sephiroth gives the root HLK as 55) and 553, Draco magnus when taking the value of kaph final. However, if a colel is added to each word you get 75, NVYT, with kaph and 555, HAD spelled in full, with kaph final.

The following considerations lead me to ask this question.
HLK = 55 = 5 x 11 = 5 Energy applied to the 11 magical number
HVA = kether = 111
HVA HVLK = 555 = 5 x 111
the ordinal value HVA HVLK is 28, and Hadit = 29
also, VYTHLK ChNVK And Enoch walked [Gen 5.24] = 555

There seems to be a connection. Am I fudging the numbers too much by doing this?

edit: I ask this because I have only ever seen a colel used on an individual word, or on the total value of a phrase.

First of all, a colol is a value of 1. You've added 2 in each case. That's a different rule.

Second of all, this tends to be out of favor these days.

Third of all, you can make up more or less any rules you want as long as you apply them consistently.

I realise it is aleph, and I was adding the value of 1 to each word. While that is effectively adding 2 to the total value of the phrase, it is also taking making HVA 12 + 1 and HVLK 61 + 1. Are you saying that in the case of a phrase you must apply the colol (if that is how it is spelled) to the total value, making it 12 + 61 = 73 + 1 = 74 ?
