Carlos Suares' The Cipher of Genesis[edit]

French Kabbalist writer Carlo Suarès in his 1967 book The Cipher of Genesis (first published in French) expounds a theory that the first five chapters of Genesis were written in kabbalistic code based on the letter-number correspondences of the Hebrew alphabet. He starts his eposition by analysing the first word of Genesis, Bereishit, describing how it is composed of two parts which form a cosmic dialectic of apparently irreconcilable meanings and that the purpose of existence is to attempt to reconcile these two. __meco (talk) 11:23, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
