Universal Code
(more fun with numbers)

January 7, 2014

There are certain numbers which are encoded and/or expressed repeatedly throughout Creation. The relationship that these numbers have to each other and to Creation is an important key that has the potential to unlock many hidden doors to many ancient secrets. 



One is an expression of both the individual (one) and of the whole (One).

(1 and 1)

Two helps to brings awareness to both one and One.

Throughout the known universe there exists a concept known as polarity. Various components of polarity are often expressed with either a positive or negative connotation attached to them. However, in reality, polarity is just a temporary state of being that is both natural and desirable. Minor imbalances are always present in the world around us and things are always changing and evolving. This is how it should be.

Below are some examples that illustrate the idea of polarity (and duality):

























There are almost an infinite number of polarities in the universe. In their natural state, they are just a temporary state of being…one that eventually and naturally evolves/resolves into something different. However, when they are artificially manipulated, they can often have undesirable consequences. Below is an examination of the concepts of balance/imbalance and how they can affect us:

1.  Minor imbalances are beneficial and create great opportunities for learning and growth:  

    Imbalance → leads to learning → learning leads to growth → growth evolves/resolves into a greater state of internal balance and awareness (higher states of consciousness and spirituality).

2.  Sustained major imbalances are not normal in nature. They are the result of some type of artificial manipulation. Artificially created/sustained imbalances result in sustained states of confusion, agitation and chaos:

    Sustained imbalance → leads to agitation/confusion → agitation/confusion leads to limited growth or negative growth → limited growth or negative growth results in unresolved states of mind/being (confused states of consciousness and spirituality).

3.  Artificially sustained states of balance are also undesirable. Technology (improperly used) can create situations which result in stagnation:

    Artificially sustained states of balance → leads to stagnation → stagnation leads to arrested states of learning/understanding (limited opportunities for spiritual growth and higher states of consciousness).

4.  Nature has a self-correcting mechanism which automatically helps to restore balance when necessary. However, this only occurs (properly and automatically) when nature is not being artificially manipulated or controlled. Given enough time, nature will always find a way to re-balance itself. Re-balancing normally occurs continually and silently in the background (unnoticed) in small increments. However, the longer that an imbalance is artificially sustained, the greater that imbalance becomes. Consequently, the greater the imbalance, the stronger (more intense) the automatic re-balancing process must be in order to properly restore balance once again.  

    Nature is defined as the naturally changing/evolving (un-manipulated) systems in the world/universe around us. Balance is achieved when we learn to live and evolve in tandem with nature. Imbalance occurs when we exploit and live outside of nature.

Attempting to bypass or artificially manipulate/control nature → leads to internal/external imbalance → prolonged internal/external imbalance leads to chaos.


The understanding of three comes from understanding three, two and one.

See a fish in the illustration above?

Triunes, Triads and Trinities are seen quite frequently throughout our world, especially in areas such as spirituality, religion and ancient Greek mythology. The deification (spiritualization) of the Triune is similar in many ways to "materialization" of the alchemical (spiritual) process.

    Hinduism – The Trimurti (the Great Trinity) = Brahma the Creator, Vishnu the Maintainer/Preserver and Shiva the Destroyer/Transformer. The Great Trinity is a representation/manifestation of the One Supreme Being.

    Buddhism – The Three Treasures or Three Jewels (Precious Triad) = Buddha, Dharma and Sangha (not separate concepts, but of/from One Being or state of being).

    Taoism – The Three Pure on es = The Three Teachers. These are the three manifestations of the Tao symbolized in the concept of Yin, Yang and Chi.

    Christianity – The Holy Trinity = Father, Sun and Holy Spirit. The following is my own interpretation. The Father (God, Creator, Creation, Great Spirit, Source), the Sun (all unique creations of the "Father" expressed in Creation) and the Holy Spirit (divine consciousness or the "Spark" of God that is contained within all of Creation). The Spark of Creation may be very dim or very bright...from conscious to unconscious, from wise to ignorant and from good to evil. All expressions of Creation have the potential to shine like the Sun and eventually become One with the Creator (God, Creator, Creation, Great Spirit, Source).

    Sight/Color - Three Primary Colors (3) → Six Secondary Colors (6) → Twelve Tertiary Colors (12). Three colors may be Three. Or Three colors may become Six. Or Six colors may become Twelve. One can become Seven. And all can become One (please see the number "Seven" below).

The Relationship of Three, Two and One

(2 and 2)

Four is a multi-dimensional representation of the polarity of two.



There are two roads -- one paved with light and the other paved with darkness. To see only one road, is to be one-eye-blind. To see both roads, is to begin to see and understand all. True awareness is about seeing through both eyes (and hearing through both ears).

Knowledge (raw material) + Awareness (raw material) = Understanding (refined product = Wisdom).

(3 and 2)

The Fifth Element helps to bring awareness and understanding to the other four elements.

 The Key to Understanding Five is nested within The Alchemy
of Three
(Δ) and the Polarity of Two (oo   ).

Five = (6+9+22+5) = 42 = (4+2) = 6

The Sixth Element helps to bring balance and understanding to the other Five Elements.

(3 and 3)

Six equals three plus three. Three helps three to see itself separately as one
and together as One.

Six = (19+9+24) = 52 = (5+2) = 7


7 = One

(3 and 4)

To understand seven is to understand One. And to understand One, is to understand seven.


Seven is the sum of three and four which may be reduced back to One. The number seven has great historical and spiritual significance:

  • Seven Days of the Week (Seven Days of Creation)
  • Seven Heavens
  • Seven Seas
  • Seven Continents
  • Seven Sages (Greece, India, China)
  • Seven Hermetic Principles (Mentalism, Correspondence, Vibration, Polarity, Rhythm, Cause/Effect, Gender)
  • Seven Colors of the Rainbow
  • Seven Notes in the Western Major/Minor Musical Scale
  • Seven Wonders of the World
  • Seven Worlds (Hinduism)
  • Seven Sisters of the Pleiades
  • Seven in the Book of Revelation - seven golden lampstands, seven stars, seven torches, seven seals, seven angels, seven trumpets, seven plagues, seven golden bowls, seven thunders, seven horns and eyes)
  • Seven Sins (greed, lust, envy, wrath, sloth, pride, gluttony)
  • Seven Virtues (chastity, temperance, charity, diligence, kindness, patience, humility)
  • Seven Islands of Atlantis
  • Seven Chakras
  • Seven Skies (Islam)
  • Seven Layers of Earth (Islam)
  • Seven Liberal Arts

(2 and 2 and 2 and 2)

Eight represents infinity. And eight represents polarity. Infinity may either be
flat (linear) or multi-dimensional in its nature.



(3 and 3 and 3)

No other number is more aware of itself and other numbers than the number nine (333).

Nikola Tesla was quoted as saying, "If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9 (3, 33, 333), then you would have a key to the universe". He was also quoted as saying, "If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration (3)".

Nine = (14+9+14+5) = 42 = (4+2) = 6

Six = (19+9+24) = 52 = (5+2) = 7

7 = One

(One & Zero and 5 & 5)


A Journey from Zero to Ten

  • We begin our lives in the womb at 0 (yin/dark).
  • Then we are birthed into the daylight at 1 (yang/light).
  • We experience, learn and grow during our journey from 2 to 7 (we have the opportunity to help grow the light and become lighter, or extinguish the light and grow darker).
  • We start to become enlightened and illuminated at 8 as our awareness of one and one (polarity) and One (unity) increases.
  • We begin to truly see and understand One at 9 (represented by the yin/yang existing together as One, and each one existing within the other one).
  • Then we transition from the "realm" of 01 and begin again in a new "realm" of 10.
  • W = 5 and E = 5. Five and five are One. We are all connected together individually as One.

(1 and 1)

One is a reflection of one. One helps the other one to see and understand itself.

Nature contains both polarities (separation) and symmetry (synergy/balance) within it. This is one of the primary esoteric meanings behind the symbol of the cross (in all of its forms).


(3 and 3 and 3 and 3)


Twelve is the product of Three and Four which may be reduced back to Three and One (three to one):

  • Twelve Months of the Year
  • Twelve Signs of the Zodiac
  • Twelve Hours of Day
  • Twelve Hours of Night
  • Twelve Ribs in a Human Body
  • Twelve Inches in a Foot
  • Twelve Apostles
  • Twelve Tribes
  • Twelve Sons of Jacob
  • Twelve Sons of Odin (Norse)
  • Twelve Olympian gods
  • Twelve Knights of the Round Table
  • Twelve Days of Christmas
  • Twelve Ounces = Troy Pound
  • Twelve Face Cards in a Deck of Cards
  • Twelve x Thirty Degrees = 360 Degrees (a circle)

(1 and 3)


There are thirteen steps that lead to the fourteenth (illumination). At the thirteenth step, one may choose a path that leads to either Light Illumination or to Dark "illumination".

Thirteen = (20+8+9+18+20+5+5+14) = 99 = (9+9) = 18

  • 18 = (1+8) = 9 = 333  (Light)  
  • or  
  • 18 = (6+6+6) = 666 (Dark)

(1 and 4)


Fourteen is the symbolic number for Illumination:

  • Fourteen = (6+15+21+18+20+5+5+14) = 104 = (1+0+4) = 5
  • The only number that equals 5 (from one to fourteen) is fourteen. Fourteen equals Five in both its English gematria code (6+15+21+18+20+5+5+14) = 104 = (1+0+4) = 5 and its numerical value 14 = (1+4) = 5
  • Illumination = (9+12+12+21+13+9+14+1+20+9+15+14) = 149  = (1 + 4 + 9) = 14  = (1+4) = 5
  • Five = (6+9+22+5) = 42
  • 42 is the Trinity of 14  (14 x 3 = 42)
  • Forty Two = (84+4) = 88 (eight and eight)


Understanding the numbers and the math above is not as important as understanding what they represent. What concepts do the numbers and the math represent?

  • Every number is unique by itself. However, each number exists within a greater whole. It is only in relation to the other numbers that the uniqueness of each independent number can be fully expressed and fully understood.
  • In other words, everything is connected and there is a definable relationship between all that exists (even if that relationship is not currently definable by presently known knowledge).
  • Everything that we need to learn and to grow is encoded in all that surrounds us.
  • Numbers and math are just another form of language. Numbers aren't good or evil. It is our actions (and our inactions) that create good and/or evil.
  • Recognizing the numbers, relationships and synchronicities around us is only the first step towards the first door. In other words, an idea exists as only a thought within the mind of the creator until an action taken by the creator makes it a reality within the realm of Creation.
