Default Re: Hebrew & Gematria

That's very helpful, thanks! I'd been pondering that question lately, because I'm teaching myself Hebrew and I can't imagine the tedious process of translating something from my language into Hebrew before I can convert it to gematria. Made me wonder how you did it. This makes sense, though, and I like the unification of male/female in it. I've always been a bit of a language-crazed person, so this sort of thing draws my interest real quick.

There seems to be a rhythm to the Hebrew language that I find similar to some Gaelic I've picked up on. Old Norse/Icelandic seems to have similar patterns to me as well. I've always thought that it's like you're singing while you speak. (It could be my accent, though..)
