I mean geometric shapes like the Pythagorean solids seem to have the number nine built into there structures.
You are talking like a numberist. Your base 10 bias is showing.
The pattern within the Fibinacci numbers has always been a favorite of mine. 1----1----2----3----5-----8------13----21----34------55-----89-----144 1----1----2----3----5-----8------4-----3------7-------1-------8-------9 233-377-610-987-1597-2584-4181-6765-10946-17711-28657-46368 8----8----7----6----4-----1------5-----6------2-------8-------1-------9 It shows a perfect growth ratio in two steps that balance each other out each cycle. Reminds me of a wave pattern if you were to graph it numerically. With the Peak being the first set of numbers and the trough being the second set with the nine signifying the point where the wave touches back at the zero point. Something like that.
Here's another one for you that you might like. 7's. Divide anything by 7 and you'll get the same sequence of numbers. 1/7 = 0.142857... 2/7 = 0.285714... 3/7 = 0.428571... 4/7 = 0.571428... 5/7 = 0.714285... 6/7 = 0.857142... It keeps going only obviously with a 1 in front of the decimal. Notice how it creates the same pattern of numbers both horizontal and vertical. Also note that the only numbers missing from the pattern are the 3,6,9.. But if you add them together across and reduce to a single digit you'll get 9. 1+4+2+8+5+7=27 or 9

9 Is the "sacred number" for the Baha'i Faith.
They have temples all over the world, each with nine entrances. Quite beautiful! They are building a new one in Chile called "The Temple of Light" which looks like it will be amazing...
America - near Chicago
Anyway, just thought I'd share. These are some incredible buildings. Each one of these three required the development of new architectural techniques, as well.
...Nine - This is other very mystical number. Probably its most interesting characteristic is that it could be multiplied by any other number and the result of the sum from the numbers consisting in the outcome is always nine. It had been called the number of attainment and spiritual perfection. probably the reason for this is that it is made by multiplying 3 by 3 the most mystical number. In its nature this number expresses the life with all its struggles, but with the result under the form of imminent success. This is symbolized by the fact that embryonal development of the human is nine months. The hidden meaning of this number is one of the most greatest secrets of the occultism, secret that has been hidden by many ways. It symbolizes the matter that cannot be destroyed and by this manner it expresses the cosmic prime-impulse. The astrological ruler of this number is Mars.
...We continue further , reaching the two colors which we named pink and golden. As we already stated we include them here, because of our intention to unite the colors with the numbers, thus to attain a technique for self-analysis, for making our lives better. In the number seven we find the cycle of the Earthly laws. On other hand the number nine is bound to the law of dynamics of every process. When we pass from the seven graded cycle of the colors to the nine-graded cycle of the numbers, firstly we reach to the pink - a color similar to the red, just on a higher octave. From the pink we pass to the orange on higher octave which we called - golden. It marks the end of the cycle in dynamics of the process. The light of wisdom shines for everyone. By giving example and sharing its insights with the other, the golden express the perfect beauty of life.
Within the context of the stories, Abraxas is a cosmic entity who embodies the destruction of the entirety of the Marvel multiverse. The existence of Galactus prevents him from emerging.
Maybe its part of the subconscious or collective conscious via imbedded archetypes? For example as pointed out earlier, Saturn-Kronos is the allegorical personification of Death, Time, and Darkness. Also it relates the concept of rings, circles, or cycles (and the sickle). Also another member brought up the famous song Revolution #9 above, which revolving is circular or cyclical. Numbers act this way, repeating to infinity, as is the theme of this thread. Perhaps a refresher course on Neo-Newtonian physics is in order? I see NOVA has some good programs about it. And this book looks cool:
Or is this an illusion created by the functions of the holographic Matrix we are in? Or is it a mere psycho-social phenomena based on the fact things are very finite and simple despite their initial misleading perception of complexity and infinite diversity? Am I just taking advantage of a loophole to play a neat word game? Is it Magic? Or is it another mysterious Riddle by E. Nigma? Could it be all of these or a combination of them?
