Part 47 - Rango - A Cubic Name Key to a Multi-dimensional Access Code

Expanding upon the “ice cube as hypercube” signaling in Rango with more exhibits, I'll begin this set by picking up where I left off in the previous post and building upon the account from Genesis 11.

1 Now the whole earth used the same language and the same words. 2 It came about as they journeyed east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. 3 They said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly.” And they used brick for stone, and they used tar for mortar. 4 They said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.” 5 The LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. 6 The LORD said, “Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, so that they will not understand one another’s speech.” 8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of the whole earth; and they stopped building the city. 9 Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of the whole earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth.
Genesis 11:1-9

Consider the attention given a name, speech and language. These are clues about the nature of what's going on. Verse 4 from the Young's Literal Translation is rendered as follows.

And they say, `Give help, let us build for ourselves a city and tower, and its head in the heavens, and make for ourselves a name, lest we be scattered over the face of all the earth.'
Genesis 11:4 YLT

“Let us...make for ourselves a name.” That effort wasn't just a bid for fame, it was going to yield the ability to do whatever they wanted. No kidding. Serious non-fiction. Get hold of that reality. The counter to that effort was to confuse the language, not to collapse their tower. This denied the workers the ability to make for themselves a name, an element that was somehow related to building of the city and the stargate of masonry.

We usually associate Babylon and Babel with confusion, mixture, and with what happened when the languages were confused. I believe it's right to do so, but the root of the word highlights the purpose.

The last sentence suggests that the name Babel means "confusion" in the original Hebrew. But it doesn't, except in this sentence. It is simply the Hebrew name for the city of Babylon. Perhaps that was enough; Babylon must have had a noisy variety of languages in biblical times. In any case, Babel came to Hebrew from Akkadian, the chief language of Babylon. The Akkadian Bab-ilu means "gate of God" and is probably a translation from an earlier Sumerian term, Ka-dingir.

Babel - Houghton Mifflin's International Word Origins

I doubt that one objective of the project in the plain of Shinar made sense without the others, which is to say that the city, (Cain first built cities) tower and name were all required to achieve their goal. They sought to exploit what has become known as sacred geometry and, it appears, the ability demonstrated in Genesis 1, apparently by acquiring for themselves something of a secret password or passcode.

Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
Genesis 1:3

Because the Lord God spoke into being what was not, creative acts may be interpreted, from one valid perspective, as work accomplished by directed non-EM wave energy. The first created was light, electromagnetic radiation.

The name the builders of the Tower of Babel sought for themselves wasn't “Atlantis” but something very special, I believe of a multi-dimensional nature, something beyond Abracadabra and Alakazam. Consider the following verses as I continue setting up for another revealing "cube" movie.

10 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—by this name this man stands here before you in good health. 11 He is the STONE WHICH WAS REJECTED by you, THE BUILDERS, but WHICH BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone. 12 And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”
Acts 4:10-12

That's the valuable name. That's the valuable stone masonry project. He is the way, the door (John 10:7-9) and true gate of God, because no man comes to the Father but by Him.

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
Revelation 1:8

He is the first and last letter of the alphabet, implying the entire alphabet, the basis of every word and language itself.

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
John 1:1-3

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, to him I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it.’
Revelation 2:17

There's a secret name, an important name given as a reward to one who overcomes. Such a name won't be stolen. This verse suggests a contrasting black stone, which, again, factors in to this complex signaling in Rango's “Hail Mary” scene. (Think, Black Stone in Kaaba cube)

11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. 12 His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. 13 He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
Revelation 19:11-12

He has a secret name, like those He rewards with a white stone. No one is going to steal it or clone it. Here's how to get a name.

8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Philippians 2:8-11

And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders; and no one could learn the song except the one hundred and forty-four thousand who had been purchased from the earth.
Revelation 14:3

They will have an entire song no one else can learn.

So, finally; some claim there's a name that is a cube, mathematically, expressed numerically as it may be in reality geometrically. The name of the sovereign God, called the Schemhamphoras, was said to be pronounced only by the high priest on the Day of Atonement. This special name is composed of 216 letters, which is six cubed (63).

Now, with all that as background, here's a movie to consider. It's simply titled, Pi In it, writer and director Darren Aronofsky (director of Black Swan and The Fountain) has the entire plot revolving around the 216 digit name, the cubic number 6*6*6. Like the movies presented in the previous post, this MacGuffin is the cube, just not represented as a physical object.

RAV COHEN: ...In the center of the great temple was the holy of holies which was the heart of Jewish life. This was the earthly residence for our God. The one God. It contained the ark of the Tabernacle which stored the original Ten Commandments that God gave to Moses. Only one man could enter this space once a year on the holiest day of the year, Yom Kippur On the Day of Atonement, all of Israel would descend upon Jerusalem to witness the High Cohen's trip into the holy of holies. If the holy man was pure he would reemerge a few moments later and Israel was secured a prosperous year. It meant that we were one year closer to the messianic age. Closer to the return of the Garden of Eden. But if he was impure, he would die instantly and it meant that we were doomed. The High Cohen had a single ritual to perform in the holy of holies. He had to intone a single word.
MAX: So?
RAV COHEN: That word was the true name of God.
MAX: Yeah...
RAV COHEN: The true name, which only the Cohanim knew, was two hundred and sixteen letters long.
MAX: You're telling me that the number in my head is the name of God!?
RAV COHEN: Yes...it's The key into the messianic age. As the Romans burned the temple, the Talmud says, the High Cohen walked into the flames. He took his secret to the top of the burning building. The heavens opened up and took the key from the priest's outstretched hand. We've been searching for the key ever since. And you may have found it. Now let us find out.

If this special cubic name was what the High Priest knew and uttered while accessing the presence of the Creator in the Holy of Holies cube, is this what the builders of the city and tower of Babel (gate of God) were after when they said, “Let us...make for ourselves a name”? Are the Holy of Holies and the Garden of Eden hypercubes with access denial systems leveraging a multi-dimensional encryption with cubic name keys? Was the plain of Shinar gambit a multi-dimensional passcode hack that had an implicit embedding in a stepped ziggurat architecture? They sought a name for themselves, but not the one like the white stone in Revelation 2:17. They, in contrast, intended to cheat the system and acquire a black stone name. They would have succeeded, but the Lord is Sovereign. You just can't beat Him!

These folks like Darren Aronofsky know things. They have to blab it, and the Lord shines a light on what's concealed to reveal what, when and where it pleases Him, to accomplish His purposes.

Here's a closely related observation, another “cubic” version of a name of God. The cube has 12 lines, 8 points, and 6 sides. These numbers sum to 26, the gematria of Yahweh, the tetragrammaton YHWH or yod heh vav heh.

Another cubic number is 27, 3*3*3 or 3 cubed. Three is the resurrection number. The number 27 is being signaled in connection with the 2012 London Olympics, and most particularly, with the 27 tonne bell being cast for hanging in the Olympic Stadium. I've been writing about that recently, and even in the context of a quantum entanglement in time and space with the Olympic Park. 2012 - 1948. London and Jerusalem. The Zion Olympics. It's all very intriguing.

The cubic number 216 factors to the resurrection number 3 times 72 (the mirror of 27), as some account the numbering of the names of God. (See The Names of God and Esoteric Hebrew Names of God) The Schemhamphoras is thus a 72 part name.

There is in Jewish tradition the belief that the ten commandments (Luchot ha-Berit) were written on a sapphire (crystal) cube or cubes.

If I remember correctly, in the movie Contact (previous post) the blueprints or schematics for the stargate device are only understood when the printout is folded into a cube.

There is an art movement known as cubism. In the previous post I noted the use of hypercube geometry by Salvadore Dali to represent the crucifixion scene. That featured a hypercube, but it wasn't done in the style of cubism. Cubism is the graphic representation of an object as seen in a moment of time from multiple angles, as multidimensional. This radical "mind expanding" visualization spawned interpretations in other media.

Cubism is a 20th century avant-garde art movement, pioneered by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, that revolutionized European painting and sculpture, and inspired related movements in music, literature and architecture. In cubist artworks, objects are broken up, analyzed, and re-assembled in an abstracted form—instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context. Often the surfaces intersect at seemingly random angles, removing a coherent sense of depth. The background and object planes interpenetrate one another to create the shallow ambiguous space, one of cubism's distinct characteristics.

Cubism - Wikipedia

Those familiar with esoteric geometries will want to give Metatron's Cube some consideration in this context.

All these things add up kind of like a noisy hologram. This cube thing - the devil's MacGuffin. All this explains why we see the cube in Rango's umbrella drink in that context.

Still more to follow on this theme, Lord willing.
