    Because of the numerical value of the word in gematria, 18 has become a lucky number for many Jewish people. Here you have options to search through any number of the books in Tanach. In order to select specific books, change to “Selected Only” and then you will have options to “Deselect all”, “Select All”, or enable your choice of books. Today, gematria is still studied by those interested in exploring its mystical aspects as well as its practical applications in mathematics and cryptography. Gematria numbers are also used for numerology and divination purposes and even for finding hidden messages within text. Regardless of how it’s used, though, gematria remains an intriguing part of our cultural heritage that continues to capture people’s imaginations today. Those who identify Abraham’s trained men with his servant Eliezer on the basis of the numerical value of the latter’s name are indulging in Midrash, as Scripture does not speak in gematria (numericals). With this type of interpretation one can interpret any name as he wishes, both in a positive and a negative manner. The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature. During his travels, he was inspired by the spiritual ways of the fakir, monk, and yogi, though he saw their methods as only successful in achieving a fraction of development, with the more practical roots of their disciplines lost in antiquity. At the same time, he believed that the effects of modern technology and society were entrancing everyone into a hypnotic waking sleep. The gemaṭria method, developed largely in the Middle Ages, became a very popular mode of interpretation, entire treatises being devoted to this branch (see Benjacob, “Oẓar ha-Sefarim,” p. 96, Nos. 119, 120; 123; p. 479, No. 737). In biblical terms, numerology is the study of how numbers used in scriptures have a symbolic meaning. For example, the twelve disciples, twelve tribes of Israel, and twelve apostles. For more explanation of what the different alphabet, gematria, and milui options mean, refer to the section on Useful Information about Gematria and Alternative Alphabets for more information. Similar to how a physicist or chemist would describe the world as consisting of atoms, particles, molecules and elements, the Jewish tradition describes this same function to the Hebrew letters. Although the language of science and Torah are different they are both describing the same reality.
