Suares: Dallet-Mem-Tav (4.40.400): the physical resistance of structures,
Dallet (4) finds its purveyor in the maternal waters, Mem (40), where all life originates.
Tav (400) is the exaltation of the entire cosmic existence in its utmost capacity to
resist to life-death. The root Dallet-Mem (Dam) is "blood" in Hebrew and the root Mem-Tav (Met) is "death."
Thus the two together express the complete cycle of existence.
Mem (40) as in Maim (waters) has practically no resistance at all, no hardness, but is responsive
to forces acting on it. In fluid mechanics water is often imagined to be a perfect fluid without
resistance and thus as a projection of Dallet (4) we see another example of opposites. However, Mem
also responds as the waters and is vital to life as we understand it.
Mem: spelled Mem-Mem: 40-40. Mem, like Waw, contains only a copy of itself. The gematria of Mem-Mem is 40+40 = 80,
Phay, the sum of actual possbilities. The structure for actualizing them is Mem-Yod-Mem, the passively resistant
Waters (Mayim is waters in Hebrew) of existence, which nuture all life. The gematria of Mayim is 40+40+10 = 90,
Tsadde, a realized structure.
