    As a Theosophist when I study I run into a lot of Kabbalistic thought and words. I have this book called the sources of measures which is a bit hard for me to understand. It is a book explaining the measures of the temple of solomon but numbers can according to this book also be understod as hebrew letters. And if I understand it correctly the Kabbalah is thought to be the geometrical area of the circle inscribed in the cube. Page 12. Is this true that the Hebrew letters also can be read as numbers, and is there any way of decoding this cipher?

    HP Blavatsky wrote that the author, Ralston Skinner, had discovered "one key" of seven regarding Hebrew numerology. Study volume 14 of HPB's Collected Writings or the old Third Volume of the Secret Doctrine. Both books have many quotes or references to Skinner's work. Also Mark Casady, whom I think you know of, has material on Skinner at his Blavatsky News 2.0 website.
