To me all this doesn't say much more than that the Sumerians who supposedly were the first to spew out this figure-- had mathematical systems that
allowed for very large numbers, in chunks of multiples of 60 suggesting it could be used to calculate arc-seconds or for that matter time-seconds with
a relatively high level of precision, or that it could be used in geometry where the base-60 or 360 system is the common way around it, due to its
many possible fractions and how it is almost the same as the length of the Earth's year in Earth days and is simple to calculate without the need of
paper or pens, they would be familiar with the most common integers or fractions, all of science was held together by one uniform base-60 system.
There are also other systems, like dividing the full circle into 400° or any given number for that matter.
Numbers don't think or have feelings, like, there are no such things as lucky numbers. Well unless you play dice and bet everything on 7. Using two
dice most combinations becomes 7. That's why it's called lucky number seven anyway. But the math explaining it is fairly simple. I'd still say that
your number is sort of a red herring though.
It does seem like whoever if anyone at all-- has levelled this star system and fixed the orbits of its planets, they seem to have used the 360 system.
I don't think it is likely that a random planetary system would list the six first primes from centre out, but only when calculating using Earth's
orbit, Earth the only planet we know harbours life, and all these stories of gods building and shaping this place and the life that lives here. Life
is possibly the rule in space, not the exception, but so is science, and just like you can build a machine that builds an even tinier version of
itself, the opposite is just to reverse the process. In order to manipulate a planet's orbit, you probably don't need much more than patience. And a
really big thing with a gravity on its own.
