Kol Means All in Hebrew and Hides a Lot

Kol Means All in Hebrew and Hides a Lot. This post refers to its reference to the 5 Platonic solids and the core of the most basic number square, the 3 x 3.  First point:

  • In Hebrew letters and numbers were depicted by the same symbol. Gematia was the name ascribed to this doubling of letters and numbers. Many Middle Eastern languages did the same. Illustrations are found below. English, by contrast, uses a separate symbol for “A” and for “1”. In Hebrew the symbol for aleph represents both the letter and the number.
  • Alef



    Phonemic representation ʔ, a
    Position in alphabet 1
    Numerical value 1
    Alphabetic derivatives of the Phoenician



    А, Я, Ѣ

    Aleph (or alef or alif, transliterated ʾ) is the first letter of the Semitic abjads, including Phoenician ʾālep 𐤀Hebrew ʾālef

Ultimately, balance is the highest law. Nature seeks balance as positive seeks negative. Platonic solids are the only five regular polyhedrons that can be constructed. Refer to the featured picture as I describe what follows:

  • Kol is the Hebraic word for “all” spelled with a kuf and lamed. Kuf is the symbol for 20. Lamed depicts 30. Ancients did not recognize “zero” as a primary number; rather as synthetic. Two opposite numbers on the 3 x 3 number square combine to total ten. That’s why 10 was considered synthetic. Example 4 + 6 or 2 + 8.
  • Thus  2 + 3 = 5 (the number of solids). Three of the five solids are triangulated while two are not.  These individual numbers, 2 & 3, are given life. Note five is also the core of the 3 x 3 number square.
  • Again, 20 + 30 = 50, This is the numerical value of “all”. All is in balance. Here’s why:  These five figures have a sum of 50 faces.

Finally, as any two opposite numbers total ten, we have  2² + 3² = 10 by squaring these root letters of all. Point of this post: Reaffirm balance.
