The Vowels Set to Number
The sounds that comprise speech are paired into two categories: open and closed – the vowels and consonants, and the voice and unvoiced.
In the article article “The Sepher Yetzirah, Setting Number to Letter“, we began a comprehensive understanding of sound as they are being set to number in English. What we learned is that the unvoiced letters, the unaspirated, are set at precise locations in the Alphabet. Counting forward, the numbers are 3,6 and 11. The letters placed at 11, the K and X, share design similarities, while the X contains within it sounds from the C, K, and S. The number 11 is unique in that it is -3 from the end of the half of the Alphabet.
Since each half of the Alphabet is 13 letters in length, counting in reverse, the 11(forward) is the 3rd letter in reverse. We may say that the unvoiced, or the anaspirated, are intricately linked to the 3, while the Letter T, itself unvoiced, yet rarely invoked as being so, is placed at 4. You may try to discern precisely why this is so should you care to “know theyself”, but we will address this later.
In a manner of speaking, we begin to see a binary pattern forming. We can place consonants, or the closed, as a 1, and the vowels, which are open, as a 1. We can then divide the Alphabet in half which then reveals that the letters A and N would each be placed at the number 1. A is open and N is closed. Why is this of interest? Because we begin to see a pattern of speech where the ARTICLES of speech, the words A, AN, and THE, are really working on a principle of opening and slosing.
The OPEN letters, the Vowels, are A, E, I, O, and U. If the noun starts with a vowel (open), we use the article that is closed (AN), thus creating a sequence of “closed-open” or “open-closed”. We ONLY use A and AN if the noun is a SINGLE unit, or 1, and of course, A and AN are both located at number 1. If this sounds etheric, it is not.
