Somewhere In Time – Film Symbolism & Gematria of Time Travel
Somewhere in Time, is a 1980 time-travel film, directed by Jeannot Szwarc, that features numerous Gematria related to the numerical patterns of Time and Time Travel. I love this film, and highly recommend you view it, below the film is described in light detail, but replete with spoilers.
Richard Collier (Christopher Reeve), a playwright, travels in time 8 years later after hearing the words “Come Back To Me.” spoken by Elise McKeena (Jane Seymour) who lived at address number 47. She hands Collier a pocket watch (which serves as the films ‘Time Device”) before returning to her residence and passing away into the afterlife.
The scene below is shown at exactly 18 minutes and 11 seconds and will feature the 18th variation of Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Note that the numbers 4+7 are equal to 11. Upon entering the number 47 Elise residence, Collier discovers two items of importance, namely the music box which plays the romantic score of the 18th variation Rhapsody, and a book on Time Travel written by the films character and professor Gerard Finney.
In Gematria the word “time” is equal to the number 47. Yet in the Septenary cypher of Gematria, we find the number 18! The Number 18 eludes to the power of life and living, as well “good nature or will”, within the concepts of Gematria numerical use. This is fascinating as it relates to the films usage of the 18th variation of the Rhapsody or musical score heard throughout the film. Life and living are related to time and the number 18, just as “time” is related to the number 47.
Why Number 47?
In occult aspects, the numerology surrounding the number 47 is based upon relationships. The numbers are at times dealt as a pairing or coupling of concepts, thus eluding to 47 as a “teamwork and romance number”. See below:
“Companionship is essential for the essence of the number 47 to be what it is. Without companionship, it feels lonely, as if its essence is suppressed. Interaction with others lets it resonate its fullness.
It’s 47’s nature to be cooperative.” – Affinity Numerology
Forty-Seven is the fifteenth prime number, and also an Eisenstein Prime. Its representation in binary is “00101111”. The planet Mars operates on a 47-year cycle, which was described in detail by the ancient Mesopotamians.
The number is seen as dealing with duality, as one would find often associated with the number 2. However, in this instance it is thought of as a romantic duality! Think of the pair of Richard Collier and Elise McKenna as ‘soul mates‘ linked via the number 47. Indeed the film is replete with the number 47 as most films dealing with Time Travel are linked to the numbers 88 and 47.
Time = 47
Jane Seymour = 47
“Come Back To Me.” = 47
Gerard Finney = 47
“To better understand the essence of 47, let’s have a look at its composition and the number it is reduced to. The number 47 is composed of the digits 4 and 7, and is reduced to the single digit 2:
4+7 = 11
1+1 = 2
Thus, the numerology number 47 essence is based on the essence of the number 2.” – Numerology Affinity
According to R. Allendy, this number represents “the evolution, 7, continuing in the eternal mechanism of the world, 40, by a personal effort and a fight – 4+7 = 11; 1+1 = 2″.
Time Travel Aspects
Richard Collier becomes obsessed with traveling back to 1912 and meeting Elise, who he has fallen in love with. He believes that his former professor Gerard Finney has time traveled to the past, and wishes to do the same. Finney reveals to Richard that he had traveled through time via the power of self-suggestion or self hypnosis. Finney warns Richard that such a process would leave one very weak physically, if successful. Richard is determined to undertake the risk, he uses self hypnosis and a tape to create the suggestion that while at the Grand Hotel, he is in fact in 1912. Eventually Collier succeeds and travels back in time to meet Elise.
More Gematria Synchronicity
Lets take a look at the names of each significant character and their Gematria:
Gerard Finney = 42 (The Professor who explains that Time Travel is possible)
Richard Collier = 42 (The Playwright who travels in time)
Elise McKenna = 42 (The Victorian actress and soul mate of Collier)
4×2 = 8 (Hidden Significance is three characters equal to 42 or also the number 8) Somewhere In Time = 88
Time Hypnosis = 47 (Collier preforms self-hypnosis in order to travel in time, his method includes using a “tape”
Perform Self-Hypnosis = 88
Tape = 42 / 18
Time Travel = 42

“Is it you?” = 23 (Elise asks this question to Collier, which is also the same as asking if Collier is “The One”.
The One = 23
Somewhere In Time = 88
Time Travel Is Possible = 88
Eighty Eight Miles Per Hour = 88
Time Travel + A Wormhole = 88
Travel In Time = 888
Time Traveler = 888 / 42
Is Time Travel Possible? Yes.
Theoretically speaking Time-Travel is seen as both possible, yet highly improbable for our current sciences. In Gematrtia and Film numerics, patterns of time travel appear often alongside the numbers 8, 88, and 47. In the film Donnie Darko, the possibility of time travel is shown via the dark energy concept aligned via the probable nature of wormholes.
Donnie Darko chronicles the last 28 days of the features title character. Twenty-Eight is also presented as TWO 8s = 88. The use of time travel in the film is related as a ‘wormhole’. Wormholes are theoretical ‘wrinkles in time’ which if gained access to would permit an individual to traverse two points in time. Timing synchronicity between the films: In Donnie Darko, on October 2nd, 1988 an airplane causes a temporal wormhole to open, which leads to a jet engine falling out of the sky and landing on the home of Darko. On October 3rd, 1980 the film Somewhere in Time was released. Visitors to the Grand Hotel who participate in the Somewhere in Time weekend depart on October 18th. Dr. Monotoff discusses time travel and wormholes with Darko. Gerard Finney discusses self-hypnosis and time travel with Collier.
Time Machine and a Wormhole = 88
Wrinkles In Time = 47
Airplane Engine = 47
Dr. Monotoff = 47
Gerard Finney = 47
