    This cipher is sometimes erroneously labelled as “Jewish” or “Hebrew” by popular numerology calculators, such as Gematrix and Gematrinator. The Hebrew Gematria is the oldest known Gematria, and you should have a separate Hebrew gematria calculator to find the values in the Hebrew Gematria. The Gematria Hebrew is specific and there is no regularity of the numeric except for the first 5 numbers of the English alphabets. Word-based numerology probably began in 8th century BCE Mesopotamia; Greeks practised isopsephia (letter-based calculation) from the 5th century BCE. Unsurprisingly, it became an indispensable tool of Jewish mystics (kabbalists) down the ages. Much of gematria focuses on the various names of God and the powers of these names. The name Elohim adds up to the number 86, which equals the value of the word hateva (Nature). This equivalence leads to the conclusion that Elohim refers to the divine presence as it manifests in the physical world, as opposed to the name YHVH, which connects to the heavenly universe. A third type of gematria is known as ‘Ordinal’ gematria; this assigns a numerical value to each letter according to its place in the alphabet rather than its individual value. This system can be applied just like Hebrew or Greek gematria but produces different results due to its unique numbering system. Numerical equivalents are given to the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet in digital ascending order from Aleph, the first letter, equivalent to 1 until Yod, the 10th letter, equivalent to 10. From there on, the letters ascend by 10s, until Kopf, the 19th letter which equals 100. The last three letters Resh, Shin, and Taf ascend by 100s, leaving us with Taf equal to 400. Skeptics, however, have noted that gematria can be employed as “proof” to support diametrically opposing positions, depending on the words and phrases one chooses to highlight and calculate. A somewhat tongue-in-cheek illustration of this involved an attempt to predict the 2016 United States presidential election through the gematria of the candidates’ names. The author of the article showed how this line of reasoning could be used just as easily to predict the victory of either candidate.
