In 2017, a researcher from the Department of Information Systems, Al al-Bayt University, Jordan published a paper titled: A mathematical Phenomenon in the Quran of Earth-Shattering Proportions: A Quranic Theory Based on Gematria Determining Quran Primary Statistics (words, verses, chapters) and Revealing its Fascinating Connection with the Golden Ratio.
In it, he uses numerology to connect several aspects of the Quran.
In particular, he defines three constants:
- QC, that is equal to the sum of numerical (gematria) values of all letters in the Quran divided by the sum of all verse numbers in the Quran.
- qV, which is the sum of the reciprocals of an arbitrary sequence.
- πA, which is the sum of the reciprocals of the same arbitrary sequence.
He shows that ln(QC)/ln(πA) is similar to the average number of letters per word in the Quran.
He shows makes similar claims for the number of verses per letter and letters per chapter.
Are these claims correct?
