Meru Foundation: Confusing But Cool
I just wanted to know if anyone else here has ever heard of the Meru Foundation. It was appearantly begun when a researcher named Stanley Tenen discovered that each letter in the hebrew language was based off a single 3 dimensional object which he named a torus. It seems that as the torus is rotated in space if you take a flashlight an shine it's image into 2-dimensions (like on a wall) it ends up displaying each letter of the alphabet (hebrew only). From this he learned of hidden patterns in the hebrew texts that produced unusual, geometric imagery. Much of it seems hyperdimensional in nature, meaning the images are shadows of objects like hypercubes, etc.
It's all very freaky because it's so cool. Appearantly the legend goes that god put into the hebrew language all the knowledge he had, but that only those skilled would be able to understand it. Tenen has been working on this for years, an years. The only thing I find is the information is almost impossible to understand unless you're a mathmatics genius. Tenen believes this imagery is suppose to allow you to transcend physical reality in someway, I think it may merely be a complex description of how the universe functions.
Has anyone ever read about his data, etc
I find it simply compelling because it's all based on mathmatics, you'll see if you read how this is so. At one time I believed aliens may have encoded this into the language for some unknown reason.

I don't know how he came up with that name but "torus" is already a mathematical term, specifically in topology. The classic example of a toroid shape is a doughnut, but any solid object with one hole all the way through it is topologically equivalent.
Topologists are called "mathematicians who can't tell the difference between their doughnut and their coffee cup." Topology is called "geometry without the details."

It seems no one can really give a good definition of what topology is.

There is nothing special about the Hebrew alphabet. Even at a young age, I could tell that the similarity between the aleph bet (hebrew.. aleph, bet gimel daled) and the alpha bet (greek.. alpha beta gamma delta). Only at the time they had us convinced that the Hebrew one came first...
This guy's on 'shrooms.
On a seperate note, the greek writing system was possibly the greatest contribution to Hebrew culture.

By the end of the 3rd millennium BCE the ancestral Aramaic, Ugaritic and Canaanite languages were spoken in the Levant alongside the influential dialects of Ebla and Akkad. As the Hebrew founders from northern Haran filtered south into and came under the influence of the Levant, like many immigrants into Canaan including the Philistines, they adopted Canaanite dialects.
Greek has been spoken in the Balkan Peninsula since the 2nd millennium BC.
goes to show that wikipedia isnt always the best source.
