I have watched a nice movie back in the day that deals with numbers.
In one of the scenes. A Jewish man comes to The Mathematician and tells about how the Hebrew uses the same "letters" as letters for words and numbers and goes on to theories about relations between words and numbers. (Its better watched than listened)
In a later scene. It becomes even weirder where some of them start to think the 216 word number is the name of The Creator.
How much is this true? Are there devoted Jews that tries to find the relations of numbers in Torah? I am personally more interested in the hebrew alphabet.
