**#21 Correspondence between the Sri Yantra and the inner
form of the 7-tree**

The two sets of the first six enfolded polygons are a holistic structure in themselves, having
**50** corners, where **50** is the number value of ELOHIM, Godname of Binah
(how other Godnames prescribe this subset of the seven polygons is discussed in Article 4
(WEB, PDF)). The 42 such polygons enfolded
in seven overlapping Trees of Life have 336 corners that are intrinsic to them in the sense that none of them is
a corner of a polygon enfolded in the next higher Tree. **168** corners are associated with
each set of **21** polygons, where **168** is the number value of
*Cholem* *Yesodoth*, the Mundane Chakra of Malkuth.

Compare this with the fact that, when turned into tetractyses, the
**21** triangles in the four layers in each half of the 3-dimensional Sri Yantra have
**168** yods lining their sides (the central triangle is omitted for the sake of clarity). In
each case, the number **168** shapes the whole (either as corners of polygons or as yods on
boundaries of triangles). This is consistent with the Kabbalistic meaning of Malkuth, for the number quantifies the
*outer* *form* of the holistic system.
