Suares: Waw-Sammekh-Mem in finals (6.60.600): Waw (6) is the male agent of fertility, Sammekh (60) is the female.
Mem when in terminals (600) is the cosmic achievement of fruitfulness both in the intelligent or immaterial part of
man and in the flesh. In Hebrew, Waw maintains its character grammatically as copulative or connecting agent.
Sammekh (60) is the female sex energy in its own activity. This can be viewed as the proliferation of biological
cells or as parthogenesis.
Sammekh: spelled Sammekh-Mem-Kaf: 60-40-20 (120) is the projection of the archetypal Waw: Waw-Waw: 6-6 (12)
into existence. Its roots concisely describe/project its internal energy/structure: Sammekh concentrates biological
resistance in physical supports. In opposition to Waw's copulative (the seed is expelled)
male fertility, Sammekh is female, reproductive (the seed is preserved and nourished) fertility.
Vav/Waw is the Hebrew grammatical copulative: it connects this word and that word. Sammekh concentrates
its energies to reproduce itself.
Sammekh is the last letter of the Hebrew Alphabet to appear in Genesis. Twenty-one letters have participated in
creation by the
verse of the first chapter of Genesis, when Ghimmel is used in the word Gedolah, great. But is it not until
that Samekh appears to complete the twenty-two.
The Zohar returns to the words of Genesis. The name of the Hebrew letter samekh means "supporting" or "sustaining".
This letter appears for the first time in the word vayisgor ("sealed") in Genesis 2:21: |
Vayapeil Adonai Elohim tardeima al ha-adam vayishan, vayikach achat mitsal-otav vayisgor basar tachtena.
In English this is usually translated, "YHVH God caused a deep sleep to fall on the man, and he slept,
and He [God] took one of his ribs, and sealed (vayisgor) the flesh in its place". But the Zohar understands
it like the midrash quoted above in the introduction: "YHVH God caused a deep sleep to fall on the [two-gendered] human,
and it slept, and He took one of its sides, and sealed the flesh in her place" (in the place the woman had been taken from).
Kolel's Zohar Course
In her place, Sammekh, female fertility, appears for the first time in Genesis when Adam and Eve are separated
into two sexes.
