Have you seen the movie Pi?

Just wondering how much of the Jewish numerical theory expressed in the film is genuine.

Thanks.

YES!! I LOVE THAT MOVIE!

Now, students who follow Gematria with a Kabbalistic bent believe such things.

In Heb, father plus mother does equal child also, nature = creator and enough other strange coincidences that you start to scratch your head, its not like they could have engineered the entire language in advanced, right? The Gematria records the numerical value of every word in the Bible and all words of equal value, so you can trace the mystical relation. This is not very popular among Jews today (though it was quite popular in the 18th cent I'm told). Personally, while it is an interesting exercise to convert words to numbers and compare it with other words, I hold strong reservation that it actually works.

Thanks for the info.
