**#36 Correspondence between the 10-tree and the outer &
inner Trees of Life**

__10-tree__

The n-tree (lowest n Trees of Life) consists of (12n+7) triangles with (6n+5) corners and (16n+9) sides. Each
triangle has three sectors sharing a common, internal corner. The n-tree has [3×(12n+7) = **36**n +
**21**] sectors with (6n + 5 + 12n + 7 = 18n + 12) corners and [16n + 9 + 3×(12n+7) = 52n+30] sides.
The 10-tree has 127 triangles with 381 sectors that have 192 corners & 550 sides, where

550 = 10×55 = 10×(1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10).

EL, the Godname of Chesed with number value **31**, prescribes the 10-tree because
127 is the **31**st prime number. The number of lines needed to construct the 10-tree from basic
triangles is the same as the number of corners of the 1096 triangles that make up the 91 Trees of Life in what in
the section **Maps of reality** is called the "Cosmic Tree of Life"
(see here)! Outside the apex of the 10-tree at the same level are two corners of
sectors. Therefore, there are (192+2=**194**) corners up this level, where
**194** is the number value of *Tzadekh*, the Mundane Chakra of Chesed. They comprise
**65** corners of the 127 triangles and (127+2=**129**) internal corners of
sectors. **65** is the number value of ADONAI, the Godname of Malkuth, and
**129** is the number value of YAHWEH SABAOTH, the Godname of Netzach.

__The combined outer & inner Trees of Life__

The 16 triangles of the outer Tree of Life have **48** sectors with (10+16=**26**)
corners, where **48** is the number value of *Kokab*, the Mundane Chakra of Hod. The (7+7)
enfolded polygons of the inner Tree of Life have 94 sectors with **80** corners. When each
polygon is Type B, i.e., when their sectors are divided further into three sectors, the 14 enfolded polygons
consist of (3×94=**282**) triangles with (**80**+94=174) corners, where
**282** is the number value of *Aralim*, the Order of Angels assigned to Binah.
**87** corners are associated with each set of seven enfolded polygons, where
**87** is the number value of *Levanah*, the Mundane Chakra of Yesod. When the outer Tree
of Life is superimposed on its inner form, the plane of the 14 polygons passes through the Pillars of Mercy &
Judgement. This means that the corners of triangles in the outer Tree located at the positions of Chokmah, Chesed,
Netzach, Binah, Geburah & Hod are corners of the two hexagons and the two triangles that are part of the inner
Tree of Life. The outer Tree has (**26**–6=20) corners that are unshared with its inner form, the
**282** triangles in which have (174–6=**168**) unshared corners, where
**168** is the number value of *Cholem* *Yesodeth*, the Mundane Chakra of
Malkuth. The combined Trees of Life have (**48**+**282**=330) triangles with
(20+174=**194**) corners. *This is the same as the number of corners of sectors of triangles up to
the level of the apex of the 10-tree*. This is not a mere coincidence. Rather, it is telling us that the
combined Trees of Life are equivalent to the lowest 10 overlapping Trees of Life. Because each is a holistic
system, they are parameterized by the *same* numbers, namely, the gematria number values of the
Godnames, Archangelic Names, Orders of Angels & Mundane Chakras of the 10 Sephiroth (see Table 1 here). Therefore, it is no surprise that we discover numbers like
**194** characterizing both systems. It is disconcerting only to the sceptic who, constantly,
needs to invoke miracles of coincidence in order to avoid having to admit that this is evidence of a rationally
inexplicable, transcendental design or logic at work in sacred geometries like the Tree of Life.

The two Type B dodecagons consist of **72** triangles with
**48** corners, where **72** is the number value of Chesed. The first (6+6)
enfolded polygons consist of (**282**–**72**=210) triangles with
(174–**48**=126) corners outside their shared root edge. Either set of the first six enfolded polygons
has 105 triangles with **65** corners, so that the triangles in the remainder of the combined
outer & inner Trees of Life have (**194**–**65**=**129**) corners. The
division:

**194** = **65** + **129**

is the counterpart of the **65** corners of the 127 primary triangles in the
10-tree and the **129** internal corners of all sectors of triangles up to its apex.

In **Maps of reality**, all levels of reality
are shown to be mapped by the 91 overlapping Trees of Life of the "Cosmic Tree of Life" (CTOL). It emanates in
10 stages, each stage spanning 10 Trees, with the last Tree for each stage being the first Tree for the
emanation of the next stage. The 10-tree is the tenth and last stage of emanation of CTOL. It corresponds
formally to Malkuth, the tenth and last Sephirah. This is why the 10-tree is prescribed by ADONAI, the Godname
of Malkuth with number value **65**, because it has **65** SLs. The 10-tree
constitutes a *whole* in itself. It is remarkable that the number of points in space needed to
construct it from Type A triangles is 192 (see the first paragraph), a number that is a defining parameter of
*all* sacred geometries (e.g., see #59 here). It is the number of points outside the root edge needed to
construct the combined Trees of Life from basic triangles. The two corners of the sectors that are at the level
of the apex of the 10-tree but which belong to the eleventh Tree correspond to the two endpoints of the root
edge.

The division:

**194** = **26** + **168**

in the combined Trees of Life expresses the fact that the outer Tree of Life has
**26** corners of the **48** sectors of its 16 triangles, whilst the
**282** sectors in the inner Tree of Life have **168** corners that are
unshared with its outer form. This division in the 10-tree expresses the fact that **26** corners
of sectors in the lowest Tree lie outside the triangle formed by its Kether, Chokmah & Binah, whilst
**168** corners (including the four corners of the sectors of this triangle) belong to the rest
of the 10-tree. In terms of the correspondence between the 10-tree and the combined Trees, the lowest Tree other
than the triangle formed by the Supernal Triad is analogous to the outer form of the Tree of Life, whilst the nine
higher Trees of Life are analogous to its inner form. The traditional form of the Tree of Life known to Kabbalists
is only its Malkuth aspect. Its *hidden*, conceptual aspect is the inner Tree of Life, which is revealed for
the first time on this website and in the author's latest book. It is the expression of its nine higher Sephiroth, whose counterparts in the
10-tree are the nine Trees above the lowest one representing Malkuth. The transcendental significance of this
remarkable, geometrical object cannot be exaggerated and will be lost only on those who have failed to study its
properties and to correlate them with other sacred geometries.
