We can see illustrated here that the 10 letters of God's name "I AM THAT I AM" corresponds with the 10 spheres of the Kabbalah tree of life, the 11th sphere Malkuth being the illusory material world, emanating from the I AM THAT I AM. Malkuth can be likened to God's dream or shadow.
Air/Water/Fire/Earth correspond with the four letters of YHWH. The divinity of 4 is demonstrated in the Pythagorean tetractys and the Hebrew tetragrammaton. It also corresponds with Oxygen/Hydrogen/Nitrogen/Carbon. The four essential elements in man's physical form, themselves being a symbol of the ineffable Azoth i.e Spirit, the I AM THAT I AM.
>Actual good thread about Yahweh
>its another name of god thread
So, an ancient 'Tree of Life' glyph has a sephirothic correspondance to 10 English letters?
Strange. I would have thought that, if anything, it would have been AHYH AShR AHYH
treating daath this way feels wrong to me and actually mapping things to it with out daath included feels more natural
with this the last "am" corresponding to yesod descending into malkuth creating quite vivid imagery of the physical world being manifested out of the conceptual
This also keeps the first i am firmly across the gulf of daath which is only a conceptual means meant to seperate atzaluth from briah.
This means the second part, 'that i am' takes place after that initial being of the first 'i am'
Makes much more sense
interesting, except Malkuth is 10 not 11, and it should read left to right, with Chesed being "A" and Binah being "M" etc. Da'ath is number 11 and is not actually on the tree of life. It makes more sense if you understand Malkuth as the final "M" since 10 becomes 1 again and Malkuth is the final HE of the Tetragrammaton.

I believe what OP was trying to get at is how YHVH was prior to the fall of the divine and earthly realms, not how it is at present.
The 7 letters of Jehovah corresponds with the 7 days of creation and the 7 classic planets. The Sabbath being Saturn, the exhalation, death of the physical body is the day God rests on creation.
I think youre wrong about some of this stuff, the name of god is actually 3 letters, one letter is repeated at the end, out of respect and fear of the name, thise in the know will know what im talking about
