Of the numbers emerging from the events of September the 11th, 2001, few are as intriguing as those of the four hijacked airplanes. Perhaps the first indication that 9/11 had a message to deliver to the world was in the moments after Flight 11 crashed into The North Tower of The World Trade Centre. As I watched the unfolding events on TV that day, I began to notice an unusual conflation of elevens: the flight number, the appearance of the twin towers, the date and other details. When I saw that the flight number of the plane that hit the Pentagon was 77, I began to wonder if these airplanes might be the bearers of some kind of message, to which their flight numbers were clues.
Little did I then suspect that which I now know to be true: that the flight numbers operate as a kind of numerical Philosopher’s Stone, transmuting the ‘base metal’ of meaningless numerical values into the ‘gold’ of some meaningful gematria.  These numbers reveal the Alchemist behind 9/11 and show that, far from being a purely human tragedy, 9/11 was foreknown and foreplanned, its ingredients mixed with scientific precision to create the ultimate Great Work.
The Sources of the Numbers
The four hijacked airplanes that took part in the 9/11 attacks, their departure points and their eventual destination are noted below. I have placed them in the chronological order in which they crashed.
a) American Airlines Flight 11, which left from Logan International Airport in Boston and hit The North Tower of The World Trade Centre in New York .
b) United Airlines Flight 175, which left from Logan International Airport in Boston and hit The South Tower of The World Trade Centre in New York.
c) American Airlines Flight 77, which left from Dulles International Airport in Dulles, within the Washington Metropolitan Area, and hit The Pentagon  in Arlington County , also within the same metropolitan area.
d) United Airlines Flight 93, which left from Newark International Airport in Newark, within the New York metropolitan area, and crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. 
The flight designations, the departure points, the crash sites and the cities can all be referred to in several ways, and it has been difficult to decide which versions of these names to use. For instance, ‘New York’ can also be called ‘New York City’ or ‘The City Of New York’. It was the spectacular results I initially obtained by using the shortest versions (often the ones that give the most search engine ‘hits’) that convinced me they were encoded. However, longer versions are sometimes necessary for disambiguation purposes or are used because they also appear to be encoded, some of the longer versions are included in alternative calculations.
Where necessary I have also included the definite article ‘the’, (for instance to differentiate the building called ‘The Pentagon’ from the figure called a ‘pentagon’). Interestingly, many calculations only work when the definite article is included, so it would seem that the power responsible for encoding the English language is aware of the rules of grammar.
Since the three main locii of events were the cities of Boston, New York and Washington (strictly, the metropolitan areas of these cities), I have also included them in some calculations, especially New York and Washington D.C., these being associated with the two targeted building complexes and of symbolic import in themselves.
The numbers are derived from the ordinal values of names or by summing the flight numbers. Most of these numbers then become meaningful under the standard value system (the rest are meaningful under one of the other three systems I use). This is precisely the same decoding method I use for the NIV Bible and it reveals some of the very same numbers encoded therein, which suggests to me that the same Intelligence was at work in both cases.
1. We begin by noting that the flight numbers of the first plane to strike in New York and the only plane to strike in Washington were numerical values under the reduced and ordinal value systems for the name ‘Jesus’ and the title ‘Christ’.
|Jesus (r) = 11|
|Christ (o) = 77|
2. Of the four hijacked airplanes, only the first three hit their intended targets. If we sum these flight numbers, we obtain the standard value of ‘Messiah’:
|11 + 175 + 77 = 263|
|Messiah (s) = 263|
3. The flights were popularly called ‘Flight 11’, Flight 175’ etc. The sum of these four shorter names gives the standard value of the following momentous phrase:
|Flight 11 + Flight 175 + Flight 77 + Flight 93 (o) = 604|
|The Second Coming (s) = 604|
4. By summing the four flight numbers alone we obtain the ordinal value for a similar phrase.
|11 + 175 + 77 + 93 = 356|
|The Second Coming of Jesus the Messiah (o) = 356|
5. Finally, the summed ordinal values of the four full flight names, (summing the value of each seperate digit in a number, as with biblical texts) is startling evidence that these flights were destined to be part of the 9/11 drama:
American Airlines Flight 11 + United Airlines Flight 175 +
American Airlines Flight 77 + United Airlines Flight 93 (o) = 911
Hopefully, you are now beginning to see that these four flights were not randomly picked by the hijackers but carefully chosen by a higher power to be an integral part of the overall 9/11 message. Just how carefully these numbers were chosen should become apparent as we proceed.
The Flights and the Departure Points
Next we add the flight numbers of the hijacked airplanes to numbers derived from the targets at which they were aimed. In each case the numbers are derived from ordinal values but take on meaning as standard values; this is the principal decoding method used in the New Bible Code.
1. Adding the ordinal values of the departure points of the flights to the flight numbers, we obtain a total that leaves us in no doubt as to the meaning behind 9/11:
|American Airlines Flight 11||left from||Logan International Airport|
|United Airlines Flight 175||left from||Logan International Airport|
|American Airlines Flight 77||left from||Dulles International Airport|
|United Airlines Flight 93||left from||Newark International Airport|
This gives us the following gematria.
|Logan International Airport (o) + 11 . = 309|
|Logan International Airport (o) + 175 . = 473|
|Dulles International Airport (o) + 77 ... = 399|
|Newark International Airport (o)+ 93 .. = 414|
|309 + 473 + 399 + 414 .................... = 1595|
|The Second Coming of Jesus Christ (s) = 1595|
In Signs Of The Times I showed how the Twin Towers and the Pentagon were watermarked with the numbers numbers 11 and 5, the first and most obvious signs of a code. Here, the numbers 5 and 11 make another appearance.
1595 = 5 x 11 x 29
Recall that 11 is the reduced value of the name ‘Jesus’ and 29 the reduced value of ‘Messiah’.
2. If we repeat the above calculation but this time add the numbers as individual digits (the procedure for calculating the ordinal values of numbers cropping up in the NIV text), another astounding number appears.
|Logan International Airport (o) + 1 + 1 ............= 300|
|Logan International Airport (o) + 1 + 7 + 5.......= 311|
|Dulles International Airport (o) + 7 + 7 ........... = 336|
|Newark International Airport (o)+ 9 + 3 .......... = 333|
|300 + 311 + 336 + 333 ............................... = 1280|
|The Second Appearing of the Messiah (s) .. = 1280|
These astounding numerical equivalencies proclaim the same message as before, but even more insistently. Note that the four flight numbers (which themselves give the message of the Second Coming) are the key ingredients in these compound numerical values.
The Flights and The Targets
The sum of the four flight numbers is 356, which, as I showed earlier, is the ordinal value of the phrase ‘The Second Coming of Jesus the Messiah.’ Adding 356 to the ordinal values of the departure points gave some incredible results. It turns out that this number performs a similar ‘transmutation’ on the numbers derived from the targeted structures. Observe that in both cases the numbers are derived from ordinal values but take on meaning as standard values; this is the ‘signature’ of the New Bible Code.
1. The targets were The World Trade Centre and The Pentagon. 
|The World Trade Centre + The Pentagon (o) = 343|
|343 + 356 = 699|
|Lord Jesus (s) = 699|
2. The two WTC buildings hit were The North Tower and The South Tower.
|The North Tower + The South Tower + The Pentagon (o) = 511|
|511 + 356 = 867|
|The Word (s) = 867|
So a fusion of these numbers, symbolised by the three strikes on 9/11, produces the standard values of two well-known titles for Jesus Christ.
The Flights, The Targets and the Cities/Districts
The flight numbers added to the targets and the target cities or districts give further encoded numbers.
1. First we add the flight numbers of the two attacks on the WTC to the ordinal values of ‘The World Trade Centre’ and ‘New York’.
|11 + 175 + The World Trade Centre + New York (o) = 515|
|Jesus (s) = 515|
2. Next we add the flight number of the attack on the Pentagon to the ordinal value of ‘The Pentagon’ and ‘Arlington County’.
|77 + The Pentagon + Arlington County (o) = 410|
|Christ (s) = 410|
Astounding! We find the standard values of ‘Jesus’ and ‘Christ’ neatly encoded in these two separate events, like a divine watermark, confirming the authenticity of these encodings.
3. Using alternative names for the locations we find the date of the attacks apparently encoded.
11 + 175 + 77 + The World Trade Centre + The Pentagon + New York City + Washington D.C. (o) = 911
The Flights, the Departure Points, the Targets and the Cities
Finally, I would like to show how four numerical elements combine to create an even more spectacular alchemical transformation. As before, I am summing the letters and numbers in the same way I sum them to find encoded numbers in the text of the NIV Bible.
1. The Flights
As stated above, the full flight descriptions have a total ordinal value of 911, apparently encoding of the date of the tragedy.
American Airlines Flight 11 + United Airlines Flight 175 + American Airlines Flight 77 + United Airlines Flight 93 (o) = 911
2. The Departure Points
These names have a total ordinal value of 1239.
|Logan International Airport (o).....= 298 (Flight 11)|
|Logan International Airport (o) ....= 298 (Flight 175)|
|Dulles International Airport (o).... = 322 (Flight 77)|
|Newark International Airport (o).. = 321 (Flight 93).|
| 298 + 298 + 322 + 321.............. = 1239 |
3. The Targets
The targets were the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon. These names have a total ordinal value of 343:
The World Trade Centre + the Pentagon (o) = 343
4. The Cities
The three cities involved in the 9/11 drama were Boston, New York and Washington D.C. These names have a total ordinal value of 333.
Boston + New York + Washington D.C. (o) = 333
5. The Grand Total
Summing the ordinal values of these four elements - the official names of the flights, departure points, targets and cities - gives us a grand total that sums up the message of the New Bible Code and is encoded twice within the NIV Bible itself.
|911 + 1239 + 343 + 333.................................................= 2826|
|The Second Coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ (c) = 2826|
The Great Work of alchemy was the production of the Philosopher’s Stone, a mythical substance capable of effecting a transmutation of elements with which it came into contact. The numbers deriving from the four 9/11 flights seem to have a similar property when they come into contact with the numbers derived from their departure points, the target structures and the three cities within which the 9/11 drama took place.
The Great Work was also seen as a spiritual transmutation that took place within the alchemist himself, as he mastered the outer discipline of his art. The events of September the 11th, 2001, announce a smiliar transmutation within our world.

Latest update 2/10/14
1. The decoding method of calculating numbers as ordinal values and interpreting them as standard values is the ‘trademark’ of the New Bible Code and is the key to unlocking its secrets. The key was given to me in a very unusual yet biblical way in November 2001, the story of which I recount in my book.
2. ‘The North Tower’ and ‘The South Tower’ are the individual names on the architect’s plans for the WTC.
3. The Pentagon’s historic name is ‘The Pentagon Office Building Complex’, but this is never used. ‘The Pentagon’ is its other formal name and the one which is commonly used.
4. ‘Arlington’ is more common, but this is ambiguous as there is an Arlington, Texas.
5. After 9/11, Newark International Airport was renamed Newark Liberty International Airport. I am using the name existent at the time of 9/11. 5. These are the names on the architect’s plans for the WTC.
6.This number is encoded as the ordinal value of Matthew 27:37 (NIV), the first verse giving the Superscription, in a passage describing Jesus’ crucifixion. The number 343 (the summed ordinal values of ‘The World Trade Centre’ and ‘The Pentagon’) is the ordinal value of Matthew’s version of the Superscription. These remarkable facts surely strengthen my case that 9/11 was a reenaction of The Crucifixion.
