 Correlating the actual history of Jerusalem and in particular the history of the Second Temple with the prophetic passage in the Book of Daniel, chapter 12, “And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be 1290 days. Blessed is he that waits and comes to the 1335 days”, we can identify a connection between historical time (expressed in years) and divine consciousness (expressed in days). We discover that the connection between a period of divine consciousness in Heaven and an interval of historical time on Earth approximates the relationship that exists in nature between the entropy of a system and the probability of that system being in a particular microscopic state at a given time. The Second Law of Thermodynamics as it relates to entropy and statistical mechanics encapsulates this relationship. Entropy as it relates to statistical mechanics is mathematically expressed by Ludwig Boltzmann’s famous equation:

S = kB lnP

In which

kB = 1.3806505(24) × 10−23 J K−1 is the Boltzmann constant

P is the number of possible microscopic states that correspond to the observed thermodynamic state.


To explore this conjectured connection further requires an understanding of the religious history of the Jewish people. In their collective history no two historical events shape their consciousness of the divine as do the desecration of the Second Temple by the Syrian king Antiochus IV in 167 B.C. ( and its subsequent destruction by the Romans under the command of General Titus in 70 A.D. ( Approximately 236 years separate these two historically significant events. Associated with the prophesied desecration and destruction of the Jewish Temple, the biblical prophesy of Daniel includes a seven year Tribulation Period. This additional period results in a total time of 243 years between the Temple’s desecration and its peoples’ redemption. An algorithm that closely approximates Boltzmann’s equation for entropy, maps these two periods to the biblical numbers recorded in the Book of Daniel. That is, when 236 and 243 are substituted for T in the following equation, C computes out to 1290.464 and 1335.813 respectively:


C = T lnT +1


C is expressed in days and is associated with a concept of divine consciousness in Heaven

T is expressed in years and is associated with historical time on Earth



In attempting to define the relationship between the temporal and divine, the additional fact that there is approximately 199 years from the time Antiochus desecrated the temple until the crucifixion and death of Jesus may also be significant. This value, substituted for T in the above equation results in 1054.368 which corresponds closely to the number of years that are theorized to have occurred between the advent of the messiah—the birth of Jesus and the advent of the supernova discussed in the “Christmas Star Allegory” section of this website. Moreover subtracting 236 from 1290 also equates to the number 1054. Additionally, subtracting 236 from the other number in Daniel’s prophesy, that is subtracting 236 from 1335 results in the number 1099 which corresponds closely to the number of years after the birth of Jesus that another western army, in parity with the Romans legions of Titus, invaded the Holy Land. In July of 1099 A.D. Christian Crusaders, acting on the orders of Rome, once again sacked Jerusalem and slaughtered its inhabitants just as the Roman armies had done in 70 A.D. In that same year, only two weeks later, Pope Urban II who had instigated the Holy Crusade also died. The sequence of these historical events, envisioned by many as mere coincidence, may instead result from a cosmic connection that exists between a divine consciousness and the space-time continuum—a connection that remains to be discovered and articulated. 

We might achieve a further understanding of this cosmic connection if we consider the apparent discrepancy in the radiocarbon dating of the Shroud of Turin. In 1989, laboratory tests placed the genesis of the Shroud between 1260 and 1390 years after the birth of Jesus. For those who consider the Shroud authentic this apparent discrepancy continues to be a mystery. This discrepancy, however, might assist us in further defining and understanding the connection between divine and temporal if we consider that the discrepancy could be normalize if analyzed in terms of multi-valued functions with logarithmic time scales that are associated with additional space-time dimensions or parallel worlds. In fact, the Shroud of Turin should actually be interpreted as strong evidence for the mutiverse hypothesis.
