Hello, Gematrinators!

The Deaths of Chris Cornell & Chester Bennington

Tonight marks the one-year anniversary of the death of rockstar Chris Cornell. I did long, drawn-out videos on both of these deaths shortly after they occurred in 2017. Now that some time has passed and I’m a little more knowledgeable, I’d like to break this down in a manner I hope to be a little more digestible.

The Sun and the Moon are the two great lights in the sky. Perhaps the best evidence of the existence of a creator is that these two objects are the exact same size to observers on Earth. Not only that, but on rare occasion, they intersect, resulting in the phenomenal event we know as a solar eclipse. If you stand in the right spot, you even get to see a total solar eclipse.

Personal note: I witnessed the solar eclipse in August of 2017, and it was, without any hesitation, the most amazing experience I’ve ever had. I’ve done a lot of fun things in my life, and before last year, I would have told you the most incredible natural high you can get is from skydiving and piloting your own parachute.

But I’ve changed my tune – now, I believe witnessing a total solar eclipse is the most amazing thing you can do. If you think I’m being melodramatic about it…maybe you’re right. But consider that a friend of mine, who witnessed the total eclipse in Kentucky, was so moved, he got a tattoo of the eclipse on his arm.

It was such an awe-inspiring event, the additional 6 hours I spent in slow-moving traffic (12 hours total) in the 90+ degree sunshine wasn’t even stressful. It was the happiest traffic jam I’d ever been in, with people smiling at each other and waving as they barely roll past you.

I actually get emotional just writing about it. Last month, I pulled up videos of the eclipse, and I was instantly brought to tears. There’s no describing it. If you take anything away from my babbling, please, just make sure you do whatever you have to in order to be able to see the next total solar eclipse in 2024, if you get the chance. If you’re outside America, use this site to find the next one near you. Unfortunately, many of you outside America will not live long enough to see one near you.

The movement of these celestial objects, the Moon and the Sun, lead us into the ritual sacrifices of Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington. Keep in mind – I personally do not believe these two particular men are dead, but have either moved far away or are laying low before sporting new private identities in the coming years. I don’t know that, however – they might have really been killed. The absolute last thing that happened, though, is that these men both hung themselves.

The number 88 represents the passage of time. This is because of the patterns of the Moon and the Sun during a lunar phase and a solar year. If you take a photo each day, you find they each make the shape of an 8 in the sky.

"Eighty-eight" = 69 (Full Reduction)The first time we’re told we landed on the Moon was in the year ’69

"Eighty-eight" = 123 (English Ordinal)Outer Space, and especially the Moon landing, are a conspiracy, just like the deaths of these two Rock-and-Roll stars

"Outer space" = 123 (English Ordinal)"Conspiracy" = 123 (English Ordinal)"Rock-and-Roll" = 123 (English Ordinal)

"Detroit, Michigan" = 88 (Reverse Full Reduction)

First, notice how Chris Cornell was born on July 20th, the same date Chester died on. What’s the date July 20th famous for? That would be the touchdown of the Eagle lunar module in 1969 -the date of the first Moon landing. Here, I will explain how these deaths were related to that event, as well as the 2017 Great American total solar eclipse.

"Moon landing" = 503 (Satanic)"Solar eclipse" = 503 (English Extended)

"Christopher John Boyle & Chester Charles Bennington" = 503 (English Ordinal)

"Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington" = 347 (English Ordinal)Sacrifice = 347 Hebrew

When man supposedly first landed on the Moon, the Moon had an ecliptic longitude of 188"Chris Cornell" = 188 (Reverse Ordinal)"Chris Cornell" = 188 (Francis Bacon)

“Apollo missions” = 188 (O)

"Eighty-eight" = 118 (Jewish Ordinal)This gematric relationship is important, because 11×8 = 88

When Neil Armstrong finally stepped out of the lunar module, the Sun had reached an ecliptic longitude of 118

"Moon landing" = 118 (English Ordinal)

(3) + (20) + (19) + (76) = 118

11 Years, 8 Months, 0 DaysChester Bennington was born on a date with numerology of 118 and died on the 118th meridian. His birthday was also on the 20th – of March, in 1976. Measuring between their two birthdays:

118 is a number of death and homicide in Jewish gematria

Death = 118 Jewish Homicide = 118 Jewish

May 18th was 118 days after Donald Trump, whose presidential election was on 11/8, was inaugurated.

On the other hand, 8×8 = 64

"Eighty-eight" = 64 (Jewish Reduction)

Chris Cornell was born 5 years to the day before the Moon landing, in the year ’64

64 DaysMeasuring from Chris Cornell‘s death in Michigan on May 18th, 2017, to his next birthday, which is also the same date Chester Bennington is said to have died:

"Chris Cornell" = 64 (Full Reduction)

"Michigan" = 64 (English Ordinal)

Bennington died on a date with 64 numerology:(7) + (20) + (20) + (17) = 64

The above measurement includes the end date. Consider, however, that in the days following Cornell’s death, the date was said to be May 17th. It was later changed to shortly after midnight on the morning of May 18th, written 5/18 in the United States.

“Christopher John Boyle & Chester Charles Bennington” = 518 (Jewish Ordinal)

If you were to reflect 5/18 underneath itself, it would look like 2/18

This is an important number – it’s the Hebrew gematria of the word “Moon”"ירח (Moon)" = 218 (Hebrew Gematria)

The lunar module is said to have landed at 20:18 UTC
The Apollo 11 navigation chart sold for $218,000

"Christopher Cornell" = 218 (English Ordinal)"Cornell" = 218 (Jewish)

Cornell was buried where his funeral ceremony was held, Hollywood Forever cemetery"Hollywood Forever" = 218 (English Ordinal)

Chester Bennington died exactly 2,000 miles from where Chris Cornell died

"Two thousand miles" = 218 (English Ordinal)

Chester was born in Phoenix, Arizona, otherwise known as the Valley of the Sun"The Valley of the Sun" = 218 (English Ordinal)

He would then die in “Palos Verdes Estates” = 218 (Jewish Ordinal)

The cause of death given for both he and Chester was suicide by hanging"Suicide by hanging" = 157 (English Ordinal)

"Two hundred eighteen" = 1570 (Jewish)

218 DaysChester Bennington’s debut album with Linkin Park was called Hybrid Theory, and it came out 218 days after his birthday:

"Hybrid Theory" = 157 (English Ordinal)

"Chris" = "Moon" in Ordinal & Extended
The Sun was at 57 degrees when Cornell died

“Two hundred eighteen” = 97 (R)
Cornell’s real name was “Christopher John Boyle” = 97 (RR)
“Two hundred sixty-six” = 97 (RR)

218 Weeks, 0 Days

The original date given for Cornell’s death was exactly 218 weeks after Pope Francis’s papacy began:

“Francis” = 119 (RO)
“Christopher John Boyle” = 119 (SR)

There’s a very strong astrological connection between Cornell and Francis as well. Francis, who is the 266th Pope, was born shortly after the Sun reached an ecliptic longitude of 266 degrees. Currently, although it’s in the process of shifting to 267, 266° is the galactic center.

At the galactic center sits a Black Hole. The Black Sun, which is another name for Saturn, was sitting at 266°, preparing to go Retrograde, on the date Chris Cornell, the singer of Black Hole Sun, died. (h/t Casey Jones) Black Hole Sun was recorded by Cornell’s first band, Soundgarden

"Soundgarden" = 122 (English Ordinal)"Pope Francis" = 122 (English Ordinal)

122 minutes on a clock is 2:02
Cornell was born on the 202nd day of a leap year

Total solar eclipse = 202"Ritual human sacrifice" = 202 (Jewish Ordinal)

10077 Days
There are exactly 10077 days between their birthdays:

"Eclipse of the sun" = 177 (English Ordinal) "Total eclipse" = 177 (ALW Kabbalah)

"Francis" = 47 (Reverse Full Reduction)

Both men had birth numerology of 47

1+2 + 1+7 + (36) = 47
Pope Francis
(7) + (20) + 1+9+6+4 = 47
Chris Cornell

Total Eclipse = 47 Reduction"Time" = 47 (English Ordinal)

5/18, the date of Cornell’s death, is interesting for another reason. It’s the date that leaves 227 days on the calendar:

“The Moon Landing” = 227 (RO)

"ליקוי מלא (Total eclipse)" = 227 (Hebrew Gematria)

In English Reduction, Eclipse sums to 33

"Eclipse" = 33 (Full Reduction)

Both Chris and Chester sum to 33

"Chester" = 33 (Full Reduction)"Chris" = 33 (Reverse Full Reduction)

3 Months, 3 Days


Chris Cornell died 3 months, 3 days before the 2017 eclipse:

"Rockstar" = 33 (Full Reduction)

33 Days


And Bennington died 33 days before the same eclipse:

"Rockstar" = 414 (Jewish)

41 Years, 4 Months


Bennington lived to be exactly 41 years, 4 months old:"Eclipse" = 414 (English Sumerian)
496 Months, 0 Days

This also converts to exactly 496 months old. 496 is the third perfect number

"Perfect number" = 616 (Jewish) "Ritual sacrifice" = 616 (Jewish)

“Perfect” = 73 (O)  |  “Number” = 73 (O)  |  “Sacrifice” = 73 (O)
“Ritual sacrifice” = 73 (R)

154 Days


Bennington’s birthday falls 154 days before the 2017 eclipse:

154 DaysOn the date of his death, Linkin Park’s most recent single, Heavy, which came out 33 days before Chester’s birthday, had been on the shelves for 154 days:

Ritual sacrifice = 154

154 = 11×14
“Heavy” = 1114 (EE)  |  1114 (Jewish)

"Thirty-three" = 156 (English Ordinal)"ליקוי (Eclipse)" = 156 (Hebrew Gematria)

"Bennington" = 156 (Reverse Ordinal)

Bennington was affiliated with a business called Club Tattoo in Tempe, Arizona"Club Tattoo" = 1056 (English Extended)

"Tempe, Arizona" = 1331 (English Extended)

1331 is the number that represents a Total eclipse, which occurs when the Umbral shadow reaches the earth.

"Total eclipse" = 137 (English Ordinal)"Umbral shadow" = 137 (English Ordinal)

137 is the 33rd prime number. Bennington started a band aside from Linkin Park that only released one album called Dead by Sunrise. Chester Bennington was found dead shortly after sunrise.

"Dead by Sunrise" = 1370 (English Extended)

"Dead by Sunrise" = 930 (Jewish)

93 MonthsIt’s said the Sun is 93 million miles away. Dead by Sunrise’s only album was released 93 months before Chester died:

"Chester Bennington" = 93 (Single Reduction)

His death also came 93 days after football player Aaron Hernandez died, also via hanging.

Solar eclipse = 433 in Jewish gematria

433 is the 84th prime number"Chester Bennington" = 84 (Full Reduction)

"Chester Charles Bennington" = 390 (Reverse Ordinal)

Eclipse = 39 Reverse Reduction "Sacrifice" = 39 (Septenary)

Linkin Park’s last album, which came out just one day after Chris Cornell died, was called One More Light

"One More Light" = 69 (Full Reduction)"One More Light" = 57 (Reverse Full Reduction)

Eclipse = 69 Ordinal "Eclipse of the sun" = 69 (Full Reduction)

"Moon" = 57 (English Ordinal)

"Killing" = 444 (Sumerian)

Cornell died 444 miles from the point of Greatest Eclipse

Bennington died 1,444 Nautical Miles from point of Longest Duration:

"Thirty-three" = 1444 (Trigonal)
