We have already discussed that these synonyms may have been introduced as part of a larger Kabalistic style structure, known in CS as the Matrix or Scientific Structure which the Mother Church is silent upon or is unaware of. A theory Propagated by Independent Christian Scientists and certain others.
I do not need to go into so much detail about that here, the system is well known and well published. My view is slightly different from other views in the sense that I don´t believe Mrs Eddy actually created this structure and then developed it, I think its more likely that she adopted this from some kind of existing Kabalistic theory which featured Pythagoras with it. This kind of system was and is still fairly common. This does not make Christian Science invalid in any way, it simply confirms that Mrs Eddy was quite a remarkable woman to make it workable and hide this. She simply tapped into a system already in place which she presumably could not publish openly. I disagree with those who paint the picture that she was “a great scientist”. A great woman undoubtedly but the system is as old as time itself and is still used and held amongst certain parts of society who have no relation to CS. The question as to why it remains hidden in plain view is an entirely separate question.
Last time, we spoke about how each Hebrew Letter has a numeric value and as such any Hebrew Letter can be seen numerically as well as emotionally (as each letter also has an emotional value) and in the Kabbalah system there are seven synonyms referred to as the “7 emotive states” which almost look like synonyms of Mrs Eddy´s 7 synonyms. Further examination of this would mean writing in Hebrew so I will leave it there.
It is well known that Mrs Eddy held antisemitic views, it is therefore unlikely that she was studying Hebrew or indeed an Esoteric Jewish Kabalistic system. However a series of “English Qabalists” and their theories were around the English world during her lifetime and although known as Occultists, I have no doubt she had encountered them. At least a few of these people had started to develop a similar theory with the English Alphabet, Giving each English letter of the alphabet a numeric value and working with each one to derive higher states of consciousness or to try and receive messages from some other consciousness (see the second wikipedia link below) This was not something new in Victorian times, these theories had been around since the 15th century, no doubt associated with the early Protestant Bibles. .
We also know that Mrs Eddy was a strong supporter of the British Israelism movement, (from wikipedia)
“British Israelism (also called Anglo-Israelism) is a movement which holds the view that the people of England (or more broadly, the people of United Kingdom) are “genetically, racially, and linguistically the direct descendants” of the Ten Lost Tribes of ancient Israel. With roots in the 16th century, British Israelism was inspired by several 19th-century English writings, notably John Wilson’s 1840 “Our Israelitish Origin”.The movement never had a head organisation or a centralized structure. Various British Israelite organisations were set up throughout the British Empire as well as in America from the 1870s; a number of these organisations are still active today. In America, its ideas gave rise to the Christian Identity movement”.

The British Qabbalists often used cyphers to disguise their work.
It is likely that Mrs Eddy developed these seven synonyms using at least one of the cyphers mentioned on the wikipedia site or perhaps developed her own based on the mathematics of the Kabbalah she had used to create her system. It will need a lot more work and investigation to clarify that.
For example: To use a Cypher such as:
A=1 L=2 W=3 H=4 S=5 D=6 O=7 Z=8 K=9 V=10 G=11 R=12 C=13
N=14 Y=15 J=16 U=17 F=18 Q=19 B=20 M=21 X=22 I=23 T=24 E=25 P=26
might further illuminate a mathematical code when used with her English 7 Synonyms revealing a deeper Mathematical structure likely further affirming the numbers 4 and 7.
There is also the question of what conclusions to draw if it proves to be accurate.
