Occult numerology regarding 72

All numbers have been assigned various meanings by various secret societies, mystery religions, occultists of various sorts in general, etc.

The number 72 is certainly a significant one in and of itself and when reduced. With 72 as an example, when occultists refer to reduction they refer to adding numbers to arrive at one such as 7+2=9. This leads to 9 equaling 666, the number of the beast. But how is that the case? Because 6+6+6=18 and 1+8=9.

72 also plays a part in Islam with reference to 72 virgins which are known as houris and refers to gazelle-eyed and are described as splendid, pure beings who were created specifically to be companions to male Muslims in the afterlife. They are said to have full grown, swelling or pears-shaped breasts (see Qur’an / Koran 78:33). Muslim women are not so bless as they will only receive one afterlife man but are assured to be satisfied with him.

Barack Obama has stated:

We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.

Why 72 and not, say, 71, 73, 70 or 74? Well, that is just a coincidence. However, he did make a much more telling, and contextual, statement:

I believe that my next “hundred days” will be so successful I will be able to complete them in 72 days. And on the 73rd day, I will rest.

Perhaps he was just pulling a number out of thin air but he did contextualize it with the Bible’s reference to YHVH resting once the creation was completed (resting as in ceasing; this was, in part, a scientific prediction of the first law of thermodynamics, see The First Commandment of Thermodynamics).

The Apotheosis of George Washington is a painting on the eye of the ceiling of the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol. Apotheosis refers to a human being becoming a god. For some odd reason, Bible believing Christians thought that this concept was a Christian virtue. Nay rather, this concept came from Freemasons (or, the Illuminati infiltration within the Masons; however you want to look at it) and to date, no Atheist activist watch-dog group (or, in this case, watch-god) has filed a lawsuit to have this religious painting removed from government property.
The circular painting features a border consisting of 72 pentagrams (five pointed stars). Of course, 72×5=360 and 3+6+0=9 and you know where that 9 is headed.





As noted in the article and video Breaking Bad Symbolism; the number comes up during a card game where two cards are displayed and focused upon; a seven and a two. Also, Jesse is given a specific 72 hours to vacate the home in which he lived.

There seems to be two main sources for the numerological importance of 72—with its reduction to 9 perhaps being a third source.

72 is an important occult number as it denotes the 72 demons that rule the world as per the Goetia, the first portion of the 13th century AD magickal grimoire, the Lesser Keys of Solomon.

Also, On the Origin of the World aka The Untitled Text is a Gnostic text that was found with documents known as the Nag Hammadi texts; Codex II and Codex XIII, the text (as translated by Hans-Gebhard Bethge and Bentley Layton) refers to “a four-faced chariot called ‘Cherubin’” and:

All the forms amount to seventy-two. Furthermore, from this chariot the seventy-two gods took shape; they took shape so that they might rule over the seventy-two languages of the peoples. And by that throne he created other, serpent-like angels, called “Seraphin”, which praise him at all times.

The text appears to be relying on Aramaic sources or was itself written in Aramaic originally (or Bethge and Layton translated it in an Aramaic manner) because there are beings called Cherub and Seraph with the plural for masculine words in Hebrew being im (feminine plural would be ot) but in Aramaic being in. That Cherubin refers to a four-faced chariot is obviously a particular view of Ezekiel chapter 1 and 10.

As for Seraphin being serpent-like angels there are two issues, biblically speaking, Seraphim are not serpent-like and are not angels. Also, they are not serpent-like but seem to share a common term with snakes saraph because a serpent’s bite causes a burning pain and the Seraphim appear to be in charge of the fire upon the altar.

Angels look like human males, do not have wings or halos and their job function, as their title denotes, is that they are messengers. Cherubim have four faces (human, lion, ox/bull and eagle/vulture), four wings, human-like prehensile appendages such as hands under their wings and feet somewhat like cow hooves.

Seraphim have six wings, face and feet are referenced but we do not know if they are humanoid and we are told that one grasped thongs so as to pick up burning coals within the heavenly temple.
