147-Letter-Long Mel Gibson |
ELS Discovered Continued
Can We Trust a Term?
But . . . do we have the right meaning? Is it possible that the above code(s) have a different meaning?
My mother Z.L. told me the following story. The details have been dramatized to illustrate the point, but the basic message is the same now as she told me.
Long time ago, a famous king had a son who was a military genius and in charge of his army. The son had a brilliant idea for a mission-impossible type of a mission to bring great honor to his country. The good king was concerned for the safety of his son and sent to ask for the advice of his best Bible codes expert. Should the son go? Will he win? Will he die? Etc. The expert looked in the book of Genesis that was then written in Aramaic. He came with the most reassuring message at a minimal skip of -2. It was a world record ELS with over 120 letters which read something like: Rambo the great warrior head of the army son of King Goliath on the (specified proposed date) will go win not die.
The king was delighted and gave the royal approval for the mission. The son went. He won not. He died. The king was furious. He demanded to get an explanation from the Bible codes expert. The expert was perplexed. Your highness! I warned you that your son would die if he goes on that date. It came with an astonishing R-value to prove that I said the truth. The king replied but you said that he: "will go, win, not die." No, said the expert. You misunderstood. I said that he: "will go, win not, die!í
What does a message of a few words mean? Can it be deciphered? Can it mean two opposite things at the same time? Are we going to see what we want to see? Can we interpret it the way we want? Letís look at another example:
An English professor wrote the words: "A woman without her man is nothing" on the chalkboard and asked his students to punctuate it correctly. All of the males in the class wrote: A woman, without her man, is nothing. All the females in the class wrote: A woman: without her, man is nothing.
Letís look at the Mel Gibson ELS term that includes the two letters Bet Chet that may be looked upon as the name Bach. Can we say from the Hebrew term
that Mel Gibson is a Bach of the people and G-d? Does the expression mean that Mel Gibson is painted positively in the ELS? Apparently, some believe that this is the caseĮon both counts. Now, let us look at a few factors:
Can "Bet Chet" be used as a transliteration for Bach? Answer: Theoretically yes. The transliteration means/sounds the same. The sound is the same. I do not believe that we have enough experience to outright rule out this transliteration. Theoretically, Bach may be a Jew without anyone knowing it. We know of many such cases that a Jewish identity was identified only many years later. By Jewish law, a Jew is someone who has a Jewish mother. This process may go back ten or twenty generations.
Why is it most likely not proper to use it for Bach? Answer: Typically, all non-Hebrew words when being transliterated are written with a Tet and not a Taf; a Chaf and not a Chet, etc. This is especially true for given names. I am not really sure that the "greatest artist" can be the "greatest musician" of a group of people. It is especially awkward in my opinion to apply that to "of G-d."
In developing this specific ELS term, the term may be read in numerous ways. I have seen at least seven different ways of interpreting this term by which a conversation is being carried out by the codes, spelling out that Mel Gibson is NOT a Bach. In fact, the codes are asking the question: Is he a Bach and they answer it: No!
Is Mel Gibson painted positively by the codes? Answer: A few years ago, I made a statement that I do not believe that one long ELS can be taken on its own to give a message. If you read the beginning of this page, you will understand that my upbringing had a little to do with my perception. I discovered that a very long term, say 147 letters long, can actually become a fascinating matrix! In my opinion, that big-term/small-matrix tells a story that does not paint Mel Gibson is a positive light. The punch line, however, is that I have done several Mel Gibson long ELS terms and I found similar messages in them.
Mel Gibson is a Bach of the Nation and G-d???
The first seven shorter versions of this long term are used to dispel the notion that Mel Gibson is a "Bach." Please note that the term has many meanings as outlined below.
Possible Summary of the Story by Terms Above (Commentary)
An innocent person suggests to Mel Gibson that he is a "Bach." Is Mel Gibson a Bach? The Nation and G-d say that he is a wicked person. Mel Gibson insists that he is a Bach, while he Nation and G-d insist: Wicked. Mel Gibson laughs Ha! ()! He is told that these are His people. Mel Gibson continues to laugh Ha. He is told again that these are G-dís nation, you wicked person. Indeed, it is over for Mel Gibson the definition Bach. The nation and G-d have labeled him Wicked. Mel Gibson is revolting. He mocked/scorned G-dís people and G-d himself.
So, can we trust one term? No one will argue that we can! In my book Bible codes Breakthrough I give my rules to accept a message as being potentially trustworthy. One of my cardinal rules is that two or three witnesses (or supporting terms) are required. I believe that above, there is a solid case to define Mel Gibson as at least cynical.
Expanding the Matrix
What if we look at the short term above: . And we try to make a conventional matrix with it? Is this what the codes are trying to tell us?
The term above that crosses the long 147-letter term just below Mel Gibson and crosses the term "the wicked," is part of the first three verses in Psalms Ch 10. I looked up the explanation of those three verses in a book copyright by Y. Orenstein (1968, Yavneh Publishing House, Ltd., Tel Aviv). The explanation of the verses was by Prof. A. Sh. Hartom, and edited by M. D. Kasuto. The explanation is as follows:
1. Why (in the name of G-d Ė in our case) are you looking from afar and you are not helping? At the time of my troubles you are shutting your eyes (not to see me). 2. In his pride in himself, the wicked will pursue the poor, and the poor will get caught in the trap that the wicked people set up. 3. The wicked glorifies himself, and brings upon himself bad deeds. The wicked loves unjust gain and he succeeds in his endeavors and by that he shames G-d.
The term - Booty, present, he loved/loves" is found in the second term with the 110 letters. It supplements the notes above: "The wicked loves unjust gain."

Code Skeptics' Arguments Trashed
Ever since the first Bible codes were announced, skeptics have been saying, "Oh, well, you can also find codes like that in books like War and Peace and Moby Dick."
We took the time to examine this notion and the best example of it that the skeptics have been able to come up with. The results of our research have completely blown away their theory.
