Gematria Shows Another Side of "Invisible Man" by Ralph Ellison: Forces Question, "Did The Novel Foreshadow 9/11 in 1952?"
|This is a picture of the first edition of Invisible Man. The one-eyed human figure|
on the dust jacket is one of many clues about the true purpose of the book.
Invisible Man won the National Book Award in 1953, and it's always been one of my favorites, as well. When I think of his theme of reason overcoming hate and misunderstanding, I agree with Ellison. Invisible's quest for truth and identity in the world of mid-20th century white America had a powerful effect on me when I read it for the first time.
It tells the story of a young Afro-American man who comes of age in the South during the era of Jim Crow. After a humiliating ordeal in the famous Battle Royale scene, Invisible gets the chance to attend a college that reminds one of Tuskegee Institute, which is where Ellison attended. Circumstances lead to Invisible's expulsion, so he travels north to New York.
This is where he eventually meets with the Brotherhood and their leader, Brother Jack. The Brotherhood is, of course, Ellison's name for the Communist Party, USA, which was active in civil rights at the time. Brother Jack recruits Invisible after he watches him deliver an improvised speech to the neighborhood. He speaks out against a landlord and the police for evicting an elderly black couple from their home in Harlem.
His career takes off from there but too much goes wrong. For one thing, Invisible meets up with his nemesis, Ras the Exhorter, the local Black-nationalist chieftain. Ras is short for Rastafari, a title of rulership and a lot more as we'll soon see. Ras is as much an adversary of the Brotherhood as he is the enemy of the white world in general. Whenever he sees Invisible or any of the other Party members speak out, or if they attempt to organize in the community, Ras and his goons are always on the scene to disrupt and disperse.
Even though Ras wants everyone to believe he's a great leader of his people, his puppet role is a familiar one. He goes along with the old British West India Company scheme, repackaged all over again. It's identical to the the East India Company and many more divide-and-conquer strategies throughout history "Do nothing. Have nothing done. Let no one do anything." Call out the local chieftain and his yahoos to bust up any assembly set on changing things for the better.
Over time, Invisible sees that Brother Jack and the Brotherhood are also, not what they seemed. No dissent within the Party is tolerated and no one is above suspicion. Personal jealousies, infighting, psychological manipulation through group pressure make it impossible for Invisible to believe in the Party's propaganda anymore. It's also curious that all the bickering and backbiting makes their organization less effective, less of a threat to the status quo that they proclaim to be against.
It all eventually catches up to Invisible at the race riot in the climax of the novel. Though the smoke and glare, Ras the Exhorter sheds his nice guy persona. Ras the Destroyer emerges on horseback in the midst of his throng with their shotguns and bats. Ras gives the order to have Invisible lynched for collaborating with the Party. In his final plea to the crowd Invisible says to them,
No!... They want this to happen. They planned it. They want the mobs to come uptown with machine guns and rifles. They want the streets to flow with blood: your blood, black blood and white blood, so they can turn your death and sorrow and defeat into propaganda.Those lines break the game wide open for the reader. Ellison helps us to see that Brother Jack and Ras the Destroyer represent the opposing enemy camps of the controlled-opposition racket. What the book does not say, at least openly, is that Ellison himself appears to have been just as caught up in this game as much as his characters.
The gematria of Invisible Man is and its connections to September 11th are pretty plain to see here.
Ras in English Reduction = 11 (9+1+1)
I just want everyone to be clear on this one. In English Reduction gematria, you reduce letters that are double digits according to their alphabetic order. You do this by adding up their digits until you end up with a single number like this.
R = 18 ( 1 + 8 ) = 9 | A =1| S = 19 ( 1 + 9 ) = 10 ( 1 + 0 ) = 1
Still, we have to acknowledge that the Rastafari, recognize the once and future king of Ethiopia, Haile Selassie as the Messiah. For that reason, they follow the Coptic calendar which is based on the ancient Egyptian calendar. The Coptic New Year is traditionally celebrated on September 11th. If you click on the screenshot, it will take you a BBC article that shows this.
Now, Selassie always pointed out his unease with being considered a human god by the Rastafaris. Furthermore, I certainly am not implying that they're are responsible for the 9/11 attacks. The vast majority of Rastafari practice the religion of kindness and universal harmony. However, Ellison or some other players behind the scene undoubtedly co-opted Rasta symbolism into the predictable pattern of subliminal propaganda based on numerology and gematria.
One of the purposes of this propaganda seems to the predictive programming of the police state and martial law that we see taking shape before our eyes. This process accelerated in the aftermath of the 911 attacks. Here's a few more numerical connections that bear this out.In English Reduction, all of the following words and phrases add up to 33: race war, police, false flag, jihadis and MASONRY to list a few.
33 is the master number of Freemasonry as it marks the highest publically acknowledged level of the Scottish Rite, the most powerful branch in the United States.
Police State in English Reduction = 44
Military in English Reduction = 44
Manipulated in English Reduction = 44
Influence in English Reduction = 44
44 is also known as the "kill number" because kill = 44 in English Ordinal gematria.44 also pops up again and again in stories connected with death and assassination.
Zach Hubbard goes into a lot of detail about 44 on his blog, here.
I think this connection is important too.
Ras in English Ordinal = 38
Death in the English Ordinal system = 38
Martial Law in English Reduction = 38
When you first come across Ras in the novel, his full title is Ras the Exhorter which adds up to 76 in English Reduction. That's a pretty important number in American history. However, it is his title at the end of the novel that cinches up the 911 connections. When Ras calls on the mob to lynch Invisible for siding with the Brotherhood, Ellison names him Ras the Destroyer.
Ras the Destroyer in English Reduction = 74 (9+1+1+0+2+8+5+0+4+5+1+2+9+6+7+5+9)
What's important about 74? The World Trade Center was built virtually right on top of the 74th meridian, as can be seen in the screenshot on the right.
Cross in English Ordinal = 74 which is another part of the code of the cover that I'll get to in a bit.
Now that we know about this connection, it's a good time to go back and analyze the cover design of the first edition and compare that data with Ellison's birth numerology.
Born: March 1, 1914,
Birth Numerology 19/37
For starters, Ellison was 37 years old when he was finishing up the book in 1951. This kind of syncing is far from uncommon when you look at birth numerology of artists and works that they are famous for. But let's keep going with 37 and see where it takes us.
On the front cover, there are sections in orangish type and others with white type. Once when I was looking at it, it hit me. I already knew that invisible equals 47 in English Reduction. That's when I realized that the different colored type wasn't just for looks, it was part of the gematria coding that is found throughout the novel.
On the front cover, there are sections in orangish type and others with white type. Once when I was looking at it, it hit me. I already knew that invisible equals 47 in English Reduction. That's when I realized that the different colored type wasn't just for looks, it was part of the gematria coding that is found throughout the novel.
The first lines looks like this INVISIBLEMAN
"Invisi" in English Reduction = 37 (9+5+4+9+1+9)
"Invisi" in English Ordinal = 82 (9+14+22+9+19+9)
The author's credit looks like this BY RALPH ELLISON
"By Ralph" in English Reduction system = 37 (2+7+0+9+1+3+7+8)
"By Ralph" in English Ordinal system = 82 (2+25+0+18+1+12+16+8)
That's another consistent string of correspondences and 37 pops up again in a big way in the famous Prologue of the novel. That's where we find out that Invisible has strung up 1,369 light bulbs in his basement apartment. That's pretty weird on its own but 1,369 is a special number, a very special number. The square root of 1,369 is 37, so 37x37=1,369.
When you spell out the founding date of the United States 1776 in Roman numerals MDCCLXXVI and decode using Jewish gematria you get 1,369.
Ellison's birth numbers with the traditional "life lesson" method by breaking apart the numbers for the birth year into single digits you get 19. From what I've found so far in the novel with name, phrases and keywords, the connections involving 19 are not as numerous when compared with 37. However, in sacred geometry there is a strong relationship between these two numbers.
Here's one way of looking at this. 19 + 18 = 37, 19 + (6 x 3) = 37, 6+6+6 =18. Also, 37 is the only number that will divide into 111, 222, 333, 444, 555, 666, 777, 888, and 999 without a remainder.
And since we're still on the subject of stars, and before I move onto the next part of the cover that needs to be decoded, let's not forget that,
Invisible in English Reduction system = 47
Star of David in English Reduction = 47
Star of David in English Ordinal = 119
All Seeing Eye in English Ordinal = 119
One the cover there are two stylized human heads with a shadow of one person that seems to be speaking at or through the mouth of the other person that's more in the light. One of the main figures eyes is missing. Imagine that! The ole' one-eye salute.
|Picture of first edition copy from 1952.|
The angled vertical line is pointing to three letters, VI at the top and E at the bottom. When you put them together, get the enigmatic VIE. In English, vie means to "compete or strive with great effort to achieve a goal."
In French it means life, as in the most famous French phrase in the worldC'est la vie. It translates for us into phrases like "That's life."
Are these the impressions that shadow man is telling the one-eye saluters of the world in 1952?
"Here is our goal," "This is your life," If things go badly, "Oh well, that sucks for you?"
That's pretty much the level of expediency the Club works on.
The way VIE is used here reminds me of the way the password to the party, fidelio, works in Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut. One word says it all.
VIE in English Reduction system = 18 Looks like another reference to 666 6+6+6=18
VIE in English Ordinal system = 36 " " " " " " 36 is like 3 sixes
Although I normally look at English Reduction or English Ordinal, with VIE being so prominently placed I looked a couple of other methods..
In Jewish Gematria, VIE =714 which didn't really say a whole lot to me. So I decided to decode 714 and this is what happened.
Seven hundred fourteen in English Reduction = 99 which is 9 x 11 and has 9/11 packed within it.
With English Sumerian gematria, you get the number 216 from VIE. That's very. very close to the year we're in now, 2016. I don't really know what that part means yet, but I'm going to keep looking. And to top it all off 6 x 6 x 6 =216.
After I thought about for awhile, I think VIE may be saying something like this.
Jewish Gematria = 714, which is like 7/4 "VIE" in English Gematria = 216, sorta like 2016.
Independence Day = 74.
Independence Day Two Thousand Sixteen = 150.
It looks like 150 may be important this year.
OK, here is where the original article resumes....
Everything that spins off from 37 got me to thinking what does the gematria of "thirty-seven" have to tell us?
Thirty-seven in English Reduction system = 57
Thirty-seven in the English Ordinal system = 165
57 is a number that has been coded over and over again in entertainment and products. It also has several, mostly negative connotations in American street slang. But for our purposes, 57, in strictly numerological terms, is restless. Five is thought to be a number associated with change and spiritual ferment. In Tarot, the archetype for 5 is The Hierophant. It's interesting that...
The Hierophant in English Reduction = 75, the reverse of 57.
He is the gatekeeper of the path to initiation.The two kneeling novices are paying their proper respect to the high priest's authority. It's a very formal and ritualistic scene that's pictured on the card.
So, getting closer to where I started, consider this.
37 is the anchor number of the novel. When you write it out, It has gematria of 57.
57 is the reverse of 75, and with the Hierophant we should expect for Invisible Man who, as it turns out, also adds up 57, to have numerous clashes and compromises with authority and power in the novel. That's pretty much what the book's about.
Invisible Man spends much of his time in New York going back and forth between Harlem and Lower Manhattan.
Harlem in the English Ordinal system = 57
Lower Manhattan in English Reduction system = 57
He would make most of the trip on the subway.
Subway = 19/91.
You can even see the back and forth motion between the reduced and ordinal gematria of the word, subway.
In the novel, Ellison mentions that the subway passes along underneath Lenox Avenue, which was the name of the busiest street in Harlem.It was the focalpoint of the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920's and 30's.
Lenox Avenue in English Ordinal = 138.
President of the United States with the s exception in English Reduction = 138.
S is unique because you have to reduce twice to get to a single digit. Therefore, with s you have the choice of using 19, 10, or 1.
Later the street was renamed Malcolm X Boulevard.
Malcolm X Boulevard = 67/193
Six-pointed star = 67/193
In closing, I think it might be fitting to go back and consider how thirty-seven breaks down to 165 in English Ordinal.
Divide and Conquer in English Ordinal = 165
Invisible Man: Is Ellison's Novel a Coded Playbook for the Divide and Conquer Game? Was Ellison Ritually Sacrificed to the Murder by Numbers Agenda? Gematria and History Continue To Raise Troubling Questions.

surrounding Ellison's life make him as indecipherable as his character.
In my last post here, I presented evidence that shows how Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison is full of gematria-coded words, phrases and other numerological references. Some of these codes seem to point to the 9/11 attacks. What makes this even more startling is that the novel published in 1952, forty nine years prior to 9/11.
If you're new to gematria. it's the art and science of coding and decoding numerical symbols and signs into words. For more information on that, check out this page.
Since my first post about Invisible Man focused on Ralph Ellison's birth numerology and the importance of 37 in the novel, here I'm going to shed some light on the date numerology for the publication of Invisible Man Ellison's death and how the number 42 plays so prominently in this story.
I had to go Rampersad's biography of Ellison to find the exact date for the publication ofInvisible Man. The novel was published onApril 14, 1952. Lincoln's assassination occurred on that day, and it was also the day when the Titanic struck the iceberg that sank it. The first abolitionist group in America was founded on April 14, 1775 in Philadelphia. It's first president was Benjamin Franklin.
|In Ferguson, MO, police form a line in front of demonstrators in the wake|
of the alleged Michael Brown shooting. This kind of antagonism and
propaganda for race-war is the classic divide-and-conquer strategy in action.
The sheer force of Invisible Man captivated the literati of the day. One reviewer noted it's "symmetrical and symphonic prose." The New York Times Book Review stated, "The geography of hell is still in the process of being mapped...Invisible Man... belongs on the shelf with the classical efforts man made to chart the river Lethe from its mouth to its source." p. 260
way around it,
"[Invisible Man] is at the same time bitter, violent, and unbalanced...."in scene after scene...savage joy is expressed when a white man 'gets his ' with a knife, fist or bullet. [The book] is virtually a call to civil war." p. 261 My brackets

characters, but the white characters are far from left out. One can make the argument that it's for the statement of holding up a mirror to America for what the state of race relations were at the time. Lynchings, racial violence, poverty and segregation were all part of the outrageous state of affairs at that period of history.
The book chronicles real grievances and I understand the shock therapy approach of the book that one gets with reading it for the first time. However, when we look at gematria and how it's used in Invisible Man we have to consider the subtextual propaganda is geared toward an outcome opposite from Ellison's stated intention of bridging the gap between the races
Ellison had the backing of Zionists and Communists in his march to fame and fortune. I'll get into more detail about that in my next posts, but for right now, I want to point out that the symbolism in the date of Ellison's death is very intriguing.
Ralph EllisonAs far as the calendar date goes, April 16th is two days past the 42nd anniversary of the publishing date of April 14, 1952. Ellison only completed one novel in his lifetime. Part of his last unfinished novel was published as Juneteenth soon after his death. The span of years between Invisible Man and Ellison's death was 42 years
Died: April 16, 1994, New York City, NY
|MLB tribute to #42 Mariano Rivera. The status|
of the number derives originally from
Just to throw some quick examples about how this works.The most racially hateful word in the world is "nigger." It's a weaponized word because it's designed to dehumanize and its gematria unfortunately is also a symbol of dominance and branding of one group over another.
Ni**er in English Reduction system = 42 (5+9+7+7+5+9)
Zionism in English Reduction system = 42 (8+9+6+5+9+1+4)
Freemason in English Reduction system = 42 (6+9+5+5+4+1+1+6+5)
February in the English Reduction system = 42 (6+5+2+9+3+1+9+7)
February is the only month with 42 gematria, which is probably the underlying reason why it is now Black History Month. For more on that, read this post.
The first African-American to play in Major League baseball was #42 Jackie Robinson. The movie about his life is even named 42. Just 42. Major League Baseball celebrates Jackie Robinson Day on April 15th every year where all players wear the number 42. It's curious how the day that marks this celebration also falls with that three day span from April 14-16. I get into the significance of "three days" in a bit.
Otherwise the number has been retired. Looking at it one way, Jackie Robinson handled the criticism and hate thrown at him with class and dignity. One a regular level, he seems to have been a great guy. Still, the fact that he testified before Congress against Paul Robeson, a Stalinist civil rights activist, if there is such a thing, who ironically spoke out against segregation in professional sports throughout this period is a curious fact, indeed. The similarity of their names and how they were pitted against each other at the height of the Red Scare of McCarthy era might be a coincidence as well, but we'll see. I'll have to return to the Robinson v/s. Robeson issue in a later post. It's the number 42 and the way the it's being given attention bordering on worship that's what I'm concentrating on here.
The Zionists and Masons have always controlled entertainment, sports, news media, and the publishing business. The power they wield on the world stage comes through influencing our behavior and attitudes through television, movies, music, and books. Decoding the gematria and numerology that is used to communicate and strengthen their agenda allows us to see the heat signature of the propaganda, if you will.
The Golden Day symbolizes what Ellison's narrator conveys as the seediness and venality of the black southern culture, both in a literary and numerical sense.
The name says a lot too in that a "golden day" is a day off form work, to recreate and rest. Ellison's Golden Day is something of an insult, because it infers that African-Americans, especially those of the South are prone to self-destructive behavior when not forced to work.
Golden Day in English Reduction system = 42(7+6+3+4+5+5+0+4+1+7)
Narrator in English Reduction system = 42(5+1+9+9+1+2+6+9)
We never get to know Invisible's name but his role as narrator is crucial to the overall effect of the book. The narrator puts before the mind's eye whatever image he chooses. In a matter of speaking, he is the architect of the reality within the novel.
Architect in English Reduction system = 42(1+9+3+8+9+2+5+3+2)
In Masonry, the Supreme Architect, blueprints, master-plans and building are all important concepts.
During the infamous Battle Royal scene, Invisible is blindfolded and forced to fight with the other young black men there who are also blindfolded.
Blindfold in the English Reduction system = 42 (2+3+9+5+4+6+6+3+4)
Secret oath in English Reduction system = 42 (1+5+3+9+5+2+0+6+1+2+8)
These oaths are repeated and compounded each step of the way. The ritual of the master mason also involves a mockassassination, in which the initiate plays out the part of Hiram Abiff. This obsession with rituals, dramas and roles that mock reality, and us in the process, is a masonic trademark.
Mock in the English Ordinal = 42
When non-masons speak out against the machinations and hidden history of their order, they too are mocked as fools.
If we consider the racial divide narrative in the news propaganda of recent history, we have two other interesting connections here.
Ferguson in English Reduction = 42 (6+5+9+7+3+1+6+5)
Missouri in English Reduction = 42 (4+9+1+1+6+3+9+9+0)
Ellison was in debt to Zionism and it's program of divide and conquer. This agenda has been in place throughout history to keep the people fighting among themselves, pitting nation against nation, race against race, religion against religion and so on. We can s those troubling facts echoed in the gematria here,
Zionism in English Reduction = 42 (8+9+6+5+9+1+4)
History in English Reduction = 42 (8+9+1+2+6+9+7)
After these numerous examples of synchronicity I think we have to consider that the 42 year span from the publication of Invisible Man to Ellison's death is significant. Is it possible that he could have been murdered as part of a ritual sacrifice by the numbers?
April 16th, the date of Ellison's death is also celebrated as Emancipation Day in Washington D.C. since slavery was abolished there on that day in 1862. That's interesting, especially since, Ellison's unfinished posthumous novel Juneteenth is titled after the African-American name for the broader celebration of Emancipation Day, celebrated on June 19. That was the day that Texas abolished slavery after the Confederacy surrendered in 1865.
If you consider that the publishing date for Invisible Man occurred on April 14, as well as the Lincoln assassination. Lincoln eventually died at 7:22 AM on April 15. Ellison died on the next date April 16.
Altogether that's a span of three days.
Three days in English Reduction = 42 (2+8+9+5+5+0+4+1+7+1)
If you write out the span of time I've been discussing as, "forty-two years and two days," you end up with this interesting set of connections.
Forty-two years and two days in English Reduction = 102(6+6+9+2+7+2+5+6+0+7+5+1+9+1+0+1+5+4+0+2+5+6+0+4+1+7+1+0)
Forty two years and two days in English Ordinal system = 336
Murderer in English Ordinal system = 102 (13+21+18+4+5+18+5+18+0)
F#%k You in English Ordinal = 102 (6+21+3+11+0+25+15+21+0)
Slavery in the English Ordinal = 102 (19+12+1+22+5+18+25+0)
The People in English Ordinal = 102 (0+20+8+5+0+16+5+15+16+12+5)
The Goyim in English Ordinal = 102 (20+8+5+0+7+15+25+9+13)
It's also important never to forget that the 9/11 attack was said to have lasted a total of 102 minutes, or an hour and 42 minutes. There's even a History Channel documentary that's called 102 Minutes That Changed America. Since my last post shows how Invisible Man foreshadows 9/11 in specific fashion, this connection of 102 with "forty two years and two days" I think this connection can be grouped with the others.
Those 102 minutes did murder something within this country, and it changed everything.
For those unfamiliar with the term the Goyim, it is a derogatory term used by the authors and commentators of the Talmud for the non-Jewish people of the world. All Jews are not racist. But, the ones who are Zionists, who are for an expansive militaristic Israel, who follow what theTalmud says about the Goyim and black people especially, and then lie about what's actually in the hateful text, are racists. They can mock and code their profanity all they want, but it's not hard to see what's going on.
If you look at the picture of the Supreme Architect sculpture above that's set above the door of Rockefeller Plaza in New York you'll see that the inscription is Isaiah 33:6. The main phrase of that verse "Wisdom and Knowledge" is partially covered by the Architect's compass. The compass is the masonic symbol par excellence, and the main phrase contains concepts that are the core of Freemasonry.
Knowledge in English Reduction system = 42 (2+5+6+5+3+5+4+7+5)
Masons often talk and write about being guardians of secrets, keepers and seekers of knowledge.
The World Trade Center bombing of February 26, 1993 also has an incredible connection to all of this. The span of days between that day and April 16, 1994 is 414. That's an exact match with 4/14 the date of Invisible Man's publication and the Lincoln assassination, as you can see on the table to the right.
February 26, 1993 was the 57th day of that year, a figure that matches up with the gematria of Invisible Man, which is 57.
The gematria of Ralph Ellison and Abraham Lincoln match up when they are summed and reduced.
Ralph Ellison in English Reduction = 60(9+1+3+7+8+0+5+3+3+9+1+6+5)
Abraham Lincoln in English Reduction = 60 (1+2+9+1+8+1+4+0+3+9+5+3+6+3+5)
February 26, 1869 was the date that the 15th Amendment was passed by Congress. It granted the right to vote all adult black men, both free and former slaves. The Reconstruction amendments which centered around the Civil Rights Act of 1866 are part of the historical legacy of that era. It brought an end to chattel slavery and paved the way for more positive changes in the future.
However, we must not forget that along with the civil rights measures that came, those laws were soon interpreted by the Supreme Court as the legal justification for giving corporations legal personhood. Ever since those laws were passed, individuals running corporations, can make decisions that affect the lives of millions of individuals without having to to be personally responsible for the negative results of their actions. Ironically, as one form of slavery was abolished, our present condition of servitude to corporate interests was being built in its place.
And to re-propel this crazy song and dance with the numbers back to the twentieth century in fitting fashion, here we go. On February 26, 1917, the Original Dixieland Jazz Band recorded the first jazz song in history, The Dixieland Jazz Band One-Step for the Victor recording label in New York. That recording was historic as it ushered in the Jazz Age that figures so prominently in New York's history, the nation's history and in Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man. In my next post, there's more on Ellison's death numerology, Invisible Man, the Obama presidency and how it all syncs up with the gematria of divide-and-conquer. It also involves Pi ...and Louis Armstrong.
Invisible Man Continued: The Boomerang of History and The Agenda of Deception Revealed Through Gematria, Did Ellison Change His Birth Year To Sync Numerology to Novel?
So, even though I made a mistake, it it was based accurately on an alteration that Ellison made on his own. I'm still researching what Ellison's stated motivation for the change, but since I exposed the relationship between his 1914 birth numerology, the novel and its gematria coding, my findings still stand.
So let's resume this study with Ellison's death numerology.
4+1+6+1+9+9+4 = 34
4+16+(1+9+9+4) = 43
When you break apart all the date April 16, 1994 into single digits you come up with 34.
4+1+6+1+9+9+4 = 34
For instance, the word "nine" also adds up to 42 in simple gematria, which ties back into the symbolism explained earlier in this post. From what I've found about how the elite uses gematria, stacked numbers with tie-ins to other stacked number patterns are very common.
The associations of other significant words that sum to 34 are what link it to the propaganda of chaos and crime.The book is still strong reading in time. Even though Ellison and Invisible preach nonviolence with their rhetoric, the emotional tone and gematria tell a different story.
With so much data that links together in so many different ways, Ellison's reported day of death on April 16, 1994 with completely natural case of pancreatic cancer is questionable. In this saga, Ellison seems to be at both ends of the gematria game, contriving names and numbers in his novels for his sponsors' predictive propaganda as well as being on the receiving end of the equation at his demise. We can this in how he plumbs the depths of the dark energy of 34 through the character of Tod Clifton.
At first, Clifton belongs to the Brotherhood and is a community organizer like Invisible. They are unlike most of the the other members, who are mostly interested in power and position, Clifton is an sincere idealist. However, after a street fight with the black nationalist, Ras the Exhorter, Clifton snaps under the strain of the pressure--Ras was right about the white world, after all
Dejected and ready to die rather than live a life of compromise, he attacks a white policeman and is killed. But before that, Ellison strips Clifton of his dignity by having him sell Sambo dolls on the street, before the policeman asks for his peddler's permit. That was the breaking point for Tod Clifton. He is the only character that's killed in the novel and his gematria links up with many words and symbols that have to do with death and assassination.
Murder in the English Reduction system = 34 (4+3+9+4+5+9)
Murder in the English Ordinal system = 79 (13+21+18+4+5+18)
Clifton in the English Reduction system = 34 (3+3+9+6+2+6+5)
Clifton in the English Ordinal system = 79 (3+12+9+6+20+15+14)
It's also interesting that Clifton also locks with the gematria of Lincoln in both reduced and simple ordinal gematria.
Lincoln in English Reduction system = 34 (3+9+5+3+6+3+5)
Lincoln in English Ordinal system = 79 (12+9+14+3+15+12+14)
Ellison's full name with "Waldo," the name his father is said to have given him in reverence to Ralph Waldo Emerson, the poet and philosopher of
Ralph Waldo Ellison in English Reduction = 79 (9+1+3+7+8+0+5+1+3+4+6+0+5+3+3+9+1+6+5)
Clifton's first name "Tod" also evokes Lincoln's wife Mary Todd Lincoln. I think it's also interesting that Ellison dropped the final "d" on the usual spelling of "T'odd." One does see the name spelled both ways but "Todd" is most common. Given the context and the gematria, that's probably not a coincidence, as is evident on the table to the right and how it matches up with the gematria of Tod Clifton's entire name.
Tod Clifton in English Ordinal system = 118 (20+15+4+0+3+12+9+6+20+15+14+0)
It's also somewhat strange that Clifton is only one letter off from Clinton, as in Bill and Hillary Clinton. However, that could be just one of those things. I think it's important to remember that Tod Clifton was a community organizer. Obama is said to have gotten his start in Chicago doing the same thing.
Here are more words that add up to 34 and that have painful and destructive connotations through gematria and their standard definitions.
Hate in English Ordinal system = 34 (8+1+20+5)
Violent in English Reduction system = 34 (4+9+6+3+5+5+2)
Destroy in English Reduction system = 34 (4+5+1+2+9+6+7)
The three preceding words have strongly negatively emotional content on their own but these next two have some other things happening.
Black and Blue in English Reduction = 34 (2+3+1+3+2+0+1+5+4+0+2+3+3+5
Hostile in English Reduction = 34 (8+6+1+2+9+3+5)
It was the first racial protest song by an Afro-American ever to be released nationwide Black and blue is also color symbolism for the police forces that defend above all else, the status quo of wealth and power.
The date of the recording by Armstrong was on July 22, 1929. That's 7/22, a number combination that relates to Pi, since 7 into 22 is approximately 3.14. Pi is a symbol of things coming full circle, like life and death.
Full Circle in English Ordinal system = 101 (6+21+12+12+0+3+9+18+3+12+5+0)
Full Circle in English Reduction system = 47 (6+3+3+3+0+3+9+9+3+3+5+0)
Invisible in English Ordinal system = 101 (9+14+22+9+19+9+2+12+5+0+0+0)
Invisible in English Reduction system = 47 (9+5+4+9+1+9+2+3+5+0+0+0)
Assassin in English Ordinal = 101 (1+19+19+1+19+19+9+14+0)
Force in the English Ordinal system = 47 (6+15+18+3+5+0+0)
Judge in the English Ordinal system = 47 (10+21+4+7+5+0)
Hostile is interesting because it pops up on Ellison's memorial epitaph where it says,
When I noticed that the year (1952) was on the epitaph, in parenthesis no less, I realized it was probably part of the coding as well. When you decode 1952 by writing it out, and adding using reduced gematria you get 84.
Nineteen fifty two in English Reduction system = 84 (5+9+5+5+2+5+5+5+0+6+9+6+2+7+0+2+5+6)
United States of America in English Reduction system = 84 (3+5+9+2+5+4+0+1+2+1+2+5+1+0+6+6+0+1+4+5+9+9+3+1)
Divide and Conquer in English Reduction system = 84 (4+9+4+9+4+5+0+1+5+4+0+3+6+5+8+3+5+9)
I also think there's something in the syncing between the publication dates of the two novels.
1984 was published June 8, 1949.
Invisible Man was published April 14, 1949.
There is a span of 1,041 days or 2 years, 10 months and 6 days. In numerology, it's customary to drop zeroes from calculations. With that in mind 1,041 syncs up with the Ralph Ellison's gematria. And there's even the added tie-in like I explained earlier with the 2-1-6 pattern from the years and months, when you drop the zero in 10 months.
Ralph Ellison in the English Ordinal system = 141 (18+1+12+16+8+0+5+12+12+9+19+15+14)
Two hundred sixteen in English Reduction system = 84 (2+5+6- 8+3+5+4+9+5+4 -1+9+6+2+5+5+5)
Adding a bit more to the 84 connections. Invisible calls himself "Jack the Bear" for hibernating in his warm hole of a basement catacomb covered with 1,369 incandescent light bulbs.
Jack the Bear in English Ordinal = 84 (10+1+3+11+0+20+8+5+0+2+5+1+18)
One more thing, during the Iran-Contra Contra hearings 1985-87, it leaked out that the U.S. Government had a continuity of government plan in place to suspend the constitution and install martial law in the event of a national emergency. This was to be provoked by racial unrest and riots. The inner cities first would come first, and then the rest of the country. FEMA was to be the directing body for a military dictatorship. The name of this operation was called Rex 84.
No!... They want this to happen. They planned it. They want the mobs to come uptown with machine guns and rifles. They want the streets to flow with blood: your blood, black blood and white blood, so they can turn your death and sorrow and defeat into propaganda. (p 558)
There's a part of me that still wants to believe that this prophetic warning of Ellison's was sincere. In any case, it comes true, history repeats every time riots and retaliation get out of hand. Rex 84 was the plan to take advantage of that situation.
Here's a few more eye-openers before moving on.
Rex Eighty Four in English Ordinal = 181
Barack Obama in Jewish Gematria = 181 Don't forget about Obama's birthday of 8/4
August Fourth in English Ordinal = 177
Dreams of My Father in English Ordinal = 177
August Fourth in English Reduction = 51
Conspiracy in English Reduction = 51
When you consider that from Ellison's death to the 9/11 attacks, there was a span of roughly seven years separating the two events. When you use gematria for "seven years," you get 43 reduced and 133 simple ordinal. That's an exact match with the other two possible ways to break down the numerology for Ellison's date of death.
Seven years in the English Reduction system = 43 (1+5+4+5+5+0+7+5+1+9+1)
Seven years in the English Ordinal system = 133 (19+5+22+5+14+0+25+5+1+18+19)
Once again, here's Ellison's death numerology
4+16+(1+9+9+4) = 43
43 is the 14th prime number which ties back into the 4/14 date that is coded all over the Ellison/Lincoln connection. It's also worth noting that 43 is a mirror reflection of 34 and its exploited to play on the baser emotions of human nature, as explained earlier.
The gematria evokes the past while also providing subliminal coding for how the order-out-of -chaos, divide-and-conquer game has been playing out more and more in the real world.
In 1952, when this book came out race riots, lynchings, rigged courts, police brutality, wide open prejudice, hate and violence were threatening to tear the country apart. The horrible death and destruction of the Civil War between North and South, the cruelty and injustice of slavery, the greed of bankers and financiers, the bigotry of the average Anglo-American seemed just as alive in 1952 as it had been in 1852.
In 2016, the situation is much more confusing, at first glance. Real victories in terms of the American people at the street level, in their own lives, taking Martin Luther King's advice, learning how to live together in harmony have occurred on a large scale. Yet, for all that, hostility and hatred is back on the rise.
The more one looks into the facts, it becomes clear. All manner of conflicting groups are being pitted against each in the media, and this tactic follows a pattern well established in history. In order to rule, there has to be some manner of consent. To get the people's consent, at least some of the rhetoric and policy from the top has to look and sound righteous and reasonable. The problem is that when enough people actually unite under a common cause inspired by a great speech by King or a movement fueled by new music, that's also paradoxically threat to the predatory divide-and-conquer power structure that's always existed in this world.
In World History 101, everybody gets to hear about the Hegelian dialectic of the conflict between thesis and antithesis which eventually leads to a synthesis between the two. What we weren't told is that in the grand experiment of the Zionists and High-level Masons, conflicts are artificially provoked through propaganda and staged events.
Instead, we were told that it explained how politics and culture just naturally work, differences in opinion and perception just lead to conflict on their own, because that's just the way it is. In the song by Bruce Hornsby we're told not believe it. To support that here's the gematria breakdown that breaks the cover.
Thesis and antithesis in English Ordinal system = 223
Thesis and antithesis in English Reduction system = 79 (2+8+5+1+9+1+0+1+5+4+0+1+5+2+9+2+8+5+1+9+1+0)
The Synagogue of Satan in the English Ordinal system = 223 (20+8+5+0+19+25+14+1+7+15+7+21+5+0+15+6+0+19+1+20+1+14+0)
The Synagogue of Satan in English Reduction system =79
Skull and Crossbones in the English Ordinal system = 223 (19+11+21+12+12+0+1+14+4+0+3+18+15+19+19+2+15+14+5+19)
Murder in English Ordinal system = 79 (13+21+18+4+5+18)
Because we have more in common with each than we realize, they seek to divide us. Because we are only beginning to rediscover what it means to be human, we're lied to and provoked into hating each other.
Recalling what Ellison's writes in the Prologue, Invisible tells us that he is in hibernation, but unlike what most hibernation is like, Invisible refers to his hideout in the following manner. This screenshot is from Kindle edition of Invisible Man page 6.
But for now, what makes this even more probable is how Barack Obama and Invisible Man have been conflated in the public eye. I'm including several images from magazine articles that bear this out.
The most significant linkage between Obama and Invisible Man is the Esquire Magazine endorsement in 2008. It was the first time in the magazine's 75 year history to ever endorse a presidential candidate. What makes that significant is that in the novel, Invisible imagines himself featured on the cover of Esquire (p. 164 Kindle Edition).
Esquire first came out in 1933, a year containing 33, the most important number in Freemasonry. When Invisible Man was published in 1952, the magazine was 19 years old, another number deeply connected to Invisible Man's gematria. I wrote about the importance of nineteen in this article.
The only endorsement in the magazine's 75 year history is notable, as
New World Order in English Reduction system = 75 (5+5+5+0+5+6+9+3+4+0+6+9+4+5+9)
In the passage take from the novel above, Invisible warn us to beware of those who speak of the spiral of history. He tells us that instead of a spiral, history is a boomerang, and that we had best be ready with our helmets on.
The Spiral of History in English Reduction = 99 (2+8+5+0+1+7+9+9+1+3+6+8+9+1+2+6+9+7)
Considering that the gematria reveals the number 99, which is another way of saying 9x11 or 911, I think we can take Ellison on his numbers, so to speak.
What about the boomerang? That oldest of Masonic tricks. That's it, make em think that this time it's gonna be different. This time, the ole' boomerang's gonna jump orbit and fly off into space all on its own. It ain't never comin' back! Look out!
The Boomerang in the English Ordinal system = 123 (20+8+5+0+2+15+15+13+5+18+1+14+7)
The Boomerang in the English Reduction system = 60 (2+8+5+0+2+6+6+4+5+9+1+5+7)
Conspiracy in English Ordinal system = 123 (3+15+14+19+16+9+18+1+3+25)
Conspiracy in English Reduction system = 60 (3+6+5+10+7+9+9+1+3+7) with the s exception
The Boomerang of History in English Reduction = 114 (2+8+5+0+2+6+6+4+5+9+1+5+7+0+6+6+0+8+9+1+2+6+9+7)
Pearl Harbor in the English Ordinal system = 114 (16+5+1+18+12+0+8+1+18+2+15+18)
World War in the English Ordinal system = 114 (23+15+18+12+4+0+23+1+18)
Here, I'm afraid I'm going to have to bring Hegel back into it the discussion because it was Hegel and later Marx who spoke of the spiral of history. The Hegelians thought of history as a spiral, caused the struggle of thesis and antithesis, explored earlier. I had not meant to get into a lot of this philosophy but when you discover that you've opened a whole nasty can of gematria, you have follow the numbers. So here goes!
Hegel uses the term Aufheben, a word that has several contradictory meanings, "lift up," "tear-down," "abolish, "preserve," "transcend," to describe what happens in the interaction between thesis and antithesis. Sorta like the "Order out of Chaos" slogan that the Masons love to put on their medals.
That's because that's what Aufheben is, the action of synthesis that takes place in the mind, in whole civilizations when opposing ideas or forces, both physical and spiritual vie for dominance in the world.
Aufheben in English Ordinal = 62 (1+21+6+8+5+2+5+14)
Aufheben in English Reduction = 35 (1+3+6+8+5+2+5+5)
Mason in the English Ordinal system = 62 (13+1+19+15+14)
Catholic in the English Reduction system = 35 (3+1+2+8+6+3+9+3+0)
How bout that. Two of the most traditional, respected and yet murderous and disruptive institutions known to history, reflected in the term Aufheben. It's from one of the most influential philosophers of modern times, so I'm sure that's a coincidence, too.
In the English translation of Aufheben, sublation is the term that is used. There are also significant gematrical connections here, as well.
Sublation in English Reduction system = 32 (1+3+2+3+1+2+9+6+5+0)
Sublation in English Ordinal system = 113 (19+21+2+12+1+20+9+15+14+0)
It's fitting that the English translation of the original German has a gematria of 32. America and UK both have gematria of 32.
The 113 gematria can be seen as 11x3, or 33. That number is of course the highest acknowledged degree of Scottish Rite Freemasonry. 32 and 33 together are the two highest degrees.
Notice also in the excerpt from the novel above, Invisible repeats the phrase "warm hole" and that it is full of light. When I picked up on that, I realized that the first letters of of the two words in the phrase "warm hole" are W and H or if you will indulge me for a moment, White House. Now, if you change "hole" to "house" and "warm" to "white" in the first sentence of the first paragraph, you get this lyrical line,
My house is white and full of light
The sound and sense of the altered line still seem like something Ellison would write. I need to mention that in my other post here, I noted that 1,369, the number of lights that Invisible has strung up in his apartment, is the Jewish gematria for 1776.This word switching technique of code-breaking is more speculative than the others discussed, but I think Ellison may be dropping us an important clue with that connection.
My house is white and full of light in the English Reduction = 139
Freemasonry in English Ordinal = 139
139 is close to the 1,369 lights hanging from Invisible's ceiling, just without the 6. The passage is from page 6 of the Vintage Edition. I don't have the original but I'll bet it's the same. Anyway, seems like another possible clue. When I study these things, I try looking at a lot of different angles.
The line is strongly evocative of Matthew 6:22-23 where it says.
22 The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!The verses breaking down to something like (6) 3+3: 22-23 is also interesting with the 322/223 symbolism there as well.
Some scholars find this excerpt from Matthew to be a veiled reference to the pineal gland, the third eye, the Eye of Horus or the Eye of Ra. The numerous references to one-eye symbolism throughout the novel, in a linguistic sense, through gematria, and visually on the original cover of Invisible Man
Pineal Gland in English Ordinal system = 95 (16+9+14+5+1+12+0+7+12+1+14+4)
Warm Hole in English Ordinal system = 95 (23+1+18+13+0+8+15+12+5+0)
The gematria of Matthew Chapter Six Verse Twenty Two ties back into the gematria of Ralph Ellison
Matthew Chapter Six Verse Twenty Two in English Reduction system =141 (4+1+2+2+8+5+5+0+3+8+1+7+2+5+9+0+1+9+6+0+4+5+9+1+5+0+2+5+5+5+2+7+0+2+5+6+0)
Ralph Ellison in English Ordinal system = 141 (18+1+12+16+8+0+5+12+12+9+19+15+14)
I found that some of the other key phrases from passage above that have significant gematria.
Light Confirms My Reality in English Reduction = 119 (3+9+7+8+2+0+3+6+5+6+9+9+4+1+0+4+7+0+9+5+1+3+9+2+7+0)
I Love Light in the English Ordinal system = 119 (9+0+12+15+22+5+0+12+9+7+8+20+0)
Divine Rule, Birthright, All Seeing Eye, and Star of David all have gematria of 119.
The Darkness of Lightness in English Reduction = 96 (2+8+5+0+4+1+9+2+5+5+1+1+0+6+6+0+3+9+7+8+2+5+5+1+1)
Freemason, Three-Ring Circus both have gematria of 96.
Steel Helmet in English Reduction = 43 (1+2+5+5+3+0+8+5+3+4+5+2+0)
Hegelian in English Reduction system = 43 (8+5+7+5+3+9+1+5+0)
It's like Ellison is shouting, "INCOMING! Aufheben! Boomerang 12 o'clock!
Come to think of it, the more I find out about this book and Ellison, I'm almost inclined to believe that he put so much coded symbolism into Invisible Man for us to find at some point. He does say something about making the masters choke on their own validation--killin' 'em with yeses, so to speak. Then again, it's hard to say. There is the possibility that I've read way to much into all of these references, but then again maybe not.
My hunch is that after Ellison wrote the manuscript, he and his editors worked on details like punctuation, grammar, and yes gematria. The gematria was encoded to help facilitate through subliminal propaganda the agenda of racial unrest and martial law outlined in Rex 84. Ellison was rewarded with wealth, numerous honors and was also the first African-American admitted to the secretive and exclusive Century Association of New York People like Fabian socialist and education "reformer" John Dewey, public relations and propagandist Edward Bernays, Eisenhower, Henry Luce of the Time/Life Magazines, and far from least Aldous Huxley, the author of Brave New World.
Brave New World in English Reduction = 63 (2+9+1+4+5 5+5+5+0+5+6+9+3+4)
63, of course another way to write out 6 6 6.
It never ends but this post has to.
