Breath Terms

Breath is associated with air, with Spirit, with breath-wind-life, with Becoming and hence with the process of creation. The Greek pneuma is the basis of the Christian Holy Spirit. In terms of number symbolism, breath is linked with:
1 (the gematria of air and aleph)
4 (the number of seconds for a regular breath)
72 (the number of breaths in 4 minutes in the Pythagorean system)
576 (the gematria of pneuma).
The numerical significance of breath becomes apparent when we examine Breaths.
