גימטריה עברית (מספר גדול)

From Kook Science

מספר גדול (Mispar Gadol [MSPR GDWL], "large number") is one of several methods of גימטריה עברית ("Hebrew gimatria / gematria"), the system of converting Hebrew characters to defined numeric values. This method in particular takes a simple 1-to-1 approach, converting the individual letters that form a word to their individual numeric value (e.g. א [a] = 1, ב [b] = 2), and then adding those numeric values together to find the total value of the word (e.g. לדוגמה [ldwgmh] = 5+40+3+6+4+30 = 88), while other methods of gematria take a different functional approach.

  • Thusly, one might perform a gematric operation as follows:
    • [אני מונחה על ידי היופי של הנשק שלנו] = [6+50+30+300+100+300+50+5+30+300+10+80+6+10+5+10+4+10+30+70+5+8+50+6+40+10+50+1] = [1576]
