Genesis 2. 23- בראשית 23.2

23.' And the Man said, 'This time it is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman because out of Man she was taken - וַיֹּאמֶר הָאָדָם זֹאת הַפַּעַם עֶצֶם מֵעֲצָמַי וּבָשָׂר מִבְּשָׂרִי לְזֹאת יִקָּרֵא אִשָּׁה כִּי מֵאִישׁ לֻקְחָה זֹּאת (6087+15 words=6092=17=8 counting final Mems as 600).

Rashi adds that as the name "Woman"- אִשָּׁה is taken from the name "Man"- אִישׁ one learns that the world was created with Hebrew, the Holy Tongue-לשון הקודש (Beraishit Rabbah 18.4).

This teaching of the Sages is proven in the most emphatic way by the following gematriot:

Woman from Man was taken
אִשָּׁה מֵאִישׁ לֻקְחָה

Holy Tongue
לשון הקודש

From here we learn that the entire world was created through the Code of 1 and 8 that reflects the connection between the metaphysical and the physical through the Name of "Hai"- חי(18) which means "life". 

It is in this Code that the Torah is encrypted.

As the Torah is the "Blueprint of the Universe" so the Name of "Hai" is the living force of the Universe and everything in it is sustained by it every second of the day and night.

Without the Name "Hai" there would be no life. 

It is that simple.
