# Experiments

The following experiment is based on work that Rabbi Glazerson and Professor Rips did a couple of years ago.
Rabbi Glazerson had the idea to look for the combination of words
גימטריא, *gematria*,
רמז, *hint*, and
תורה, *Torah*.
He found a table and showed it to Professor Rips. Professor Rips saw ELSs for
the word נביא, *prophet*,
and an additional ELS for תורה, *Torah*,
both ELSs parallel to the ELS of גימטריא, *gematria*.
The parallel and close orientation of these ELS is unusual.
אל, *El*, the name of God
relating to the aspect of power, was noticed as an extension to the ELS of רמז,
making the phrase, *hint of God*.

This table was found by interactive search by Rabbi Glazerson and Professor Rips.
The cylinder size is 3126.

Rabbi Glazerson, who has published over three dozen books, which have been translated into multiple languages,
is the singular modern lecturer and author who consistently uses the gematria of Hebrew words to teach
principles of Jewish spirituality and to relate current events to Jewish thought.
It is not a surprise then that Rabbi Glazerson looked for his name

מתתיהו,

*Matityahu* and found it in the gematria table. This table is shown below.

This table was found by interactive search by Rabbi Glazerson and Professor Rips.
The cylinder size is 3126.

On the basis of the table found by Rabbi Glazerson and Professor Rips, we designed an experiment
involving a few more key words such as words for *the code*, הקוד,
and the alternate הצפן,
and*the secret*, הסוד.
The Zohar states that in the time before the Messiah will come, gematria will rise. Therefore we added
משיח, *Messiah*, to the list of key words for
the experiment. The complete set of words is given in the table below.

Axis Key word | Gematria | גימטריה |

At Most One of | Hint, Hint of God | רמז, רמז אל |

At Most One of | Torah, The Torah | תורה, התורה |

At Most One of | Tetragrammaton | יהוה |

At Most One of | Code, The Code | קוד, הקוד |

At Most One of | Code, The Code | צפן, הצפן |

At Most One of | Prophet | נביא |

At Most One of | Kabbalah | קבלה |

At Most One of | Messiah | משיח |

At Most One of | The Secret | הסוד |

Table Of Key Words For The Gematria Experiment

Presented below is the set of smallest p-value tables, (those are the most statistically significant ones) in ascending order of p-value.
Tables having keywords that are subsets of keywords in tables with the same cylinder size and smaller p-values are not shown. The largest
p-value that we show is less than 22.5/3000=.0075.

Table using the axis protocol with the axis word being gematria.
The maximum skip for the axis key word is set so that its expected number of ELSs is 100.
The maximum skip for each non-axis key word is set so that its expected number of ELSs is 200.
The cylinder size determined by the program is 3126. The probability that a table with these
key words would be produced from a ELS random placement monkey text population that is compact
as this table is 1.5/3000.

The following is the table that results when we make the axis key word be *Light of Torah*,
תורה אור and required an ELS of
*Gematria*.

Table using the axis protocol with the axis word being Light of Torah.
The maximum skip for the axis key word is set so that its expected number of ELSs is 100.
The maximum skip for each non-axis key word is set so that its expected number of ELSs is 200.
The cylinder size determined by the program is 1253. The probability that a table with these
key words would be produced from a ELS random placement monkey text population that is compact
as this table is 32.5/10,000.

When we set the largest ELS skip to be the maximal possible for each key word, the following table results.
The table has a more compact area, but since the maximum skip of each ELS was set to be the maximum possible,
the table is not statistically significant. This illustrates why an interactive approach which allows ELSs
of any skip has the potential to produce compact looking tables which are not statistically significant.

The cylinder size determined by the program is 1981. The maximum skip for each ELS is set to be
the maximum possible. The probability that a table with these
key words would be produced from a ELS random placement monkey text population that is compact
as this table is .225. The table is not statistically significant.
