**#52 How CTOL is encoded in various sacred
geometries**

a) The inner Tree of Life consists of two sets of seven regular polygons that are enfolded in
one another and sharing one "root edge." Either set of seven separate polygons have
**48** corners. The triangle and square have seven corners (shown as black). One endpoint of the
root edge (coloured red) is associated with the set of polygons on the right with red corners and the other
endpoint (coloured blue) is associated with the second set of polygons. Endpoints can be treated formally as
corners, so that **49** corners are associated with each set. The five types of polygons with the
most corners have 41 corners. The (7+5) polygons separated by their root edge have (**49**+1+41=91)
corners symbolizing the 91 Trees of CTOL. A set of seven polygons constructed from tetractyses has 295 yods. They
symbolize the 295 SLs up to Chesed of the **49**th Tree of Life. The seven corners of the triangle
& square symbolize the lowest seven Trees of Life (7-tree); the **49** corners associated
with the set of seven polygons symbolize the lowest **49** Trees (**49**-tree). The
four yods of the root edge denote the next four SLs up to the top of this Tree. The five polygons with most corners
have 251 yods symbolizing the 251 SLs above this Tree in the Cosmic Tree of Life (CTOL). The (7+5) separate
polygons and the root edge have 550 yods that symbolize the 550 SLs in the 91 overlapping Trees of CTOL. See also
here.

b) Each set of seven enfolded polygons of the inner Tree of Life has 264 yods when their 47
sectors are tetractyses. Eight black yods in each set are shared with the outer Tree of Life, which has 70 yods
when its 16 triangles are tetractyses. This leaves 258 unshared yods, 254 of which are outside the root edge. Four
purple yods are centres of polygons. (254−4=250) unshared yods outside the root edge surround the centres of
polygons. The outer Tree of Life has (70−8−8=54) yods unshared with polygons. Four of these are Sephiroth, leaving
**50** *intrinsic* yods that are not Sephiroth. The combined outer & inner Trees
have (**50**+250+250=550) intrinsic yods that are not Sephiroth or centres of polygons. See also
here.

c) When the **50** faces of the five Platonic solids with
**50** vertices are divided into their 180 triangular sectors, the latter have
(**50**+**50**=100) corners & (90+180=270) sides — a total of 550 geometrical
elements. See also here.

d) When the 12 pentagonal faces of the dodecahedron are divided into their 60 sectors and the latter turned into tetractyses, they have 550 hexagonal yods. See also here.

e) The 60 vertices that surround an axis passing through two diametrically opposite C vertices
of the disdyakis triacontahedron are the corners of **15** polygons that lie in a plane
perpendicular to this axis. When regarded as Type B polygons, they comprise 550 corners, sides & triangles,
including the two C vertices. See also here.

f) When Type A triangles having 19 yods, the 42 triangles that surround the central triangle of the Sri Yantra have 504 hexagonal yods on the 252 sides of their 126 tetractyses. When Type B, the central triangle has 46 yods (see here). The 43 triangles have 550 yods that are either hexagonal yods of the surrounding triangles or yods of the central one. See also here.

g) The Godname of Malkuth is ADONAI. Its number value is **65**. This is the number
of SLs in the 10-tree — the lowest 10 Trees of Life in CTOL. In fact, the number values of the Hebrew letters of
ADONAI specify the numbers of different sets of SLS in the 10-tree (see here). It has 127 triangles with **65** corners and 169
sides. Dividing each triangle into its three sectors generates (127×3 = 381) triangles with
(**65**+127=192) corners and (169+381=550) sides. As a parameter of sacred geometries, the number
550 appears in the 10-tree because the latter is the Tree of Life with each Sephirah itself represented by
another Tree of Life.
