Revelation 13:18 says the following:
"This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is a man's number. His number is 666."
This beast, regarded by some as the Anti-Christ described by John, is thus related to the number 666, one of the greatest mysteries of the Bible.
Curiously enough, if you take the sine of 666º, you get -0.80901699, which is one-half of negative phi, or perhaps what one might call the "anti-phi."
The trigonometric relationship of sin 666º to phi is based on an isosceles triangle with a base of phi and sides of 1. When this triangle is enclosed in a circle with a radius of 1, we see that the lower line, which has an angle of 306º on the first rotation and 666º on the second rotation, has a sine equal to one-half negative phi.
In this we see the unity of phi divided into positive and negative, analogous perhaps to light and darkness or good and evil. Could this "sine" be a "sign" as well?
In addition, 666 degrees is 54 degrees short of the complete second circle and when dividing the 360 degrees of a circle by 54 degrees you get 6.66... The other side of a 54 degree angle in a right angle is 36 degrees and 36 divided by 54 is .666.
Phi appears throughout creation, and in every physical proportion of the human body. In that sense it is the number of mankind, as the mysterious passage of Revelation perhaps reveals.

"first up to the plate"? that sounds a bit 4D emotional drama staged to me,
thought you might like to know that I for one have been posting about that very number in quite a few posts here, not exactly to do with what you have linked there, but yes to do with isocelese triangles and that star = mountain pattern, and of course to do with 666.

Many attempts have been made to identify the number 666 with the name of an individual by giving a numerical value to each letter of a name and adding them up to see if they total 666. Since the numbers in Revelation have symbolic value, it seems best to understand this number in the same way. Since seven is the number of God's completed word (4 gospels plus holy trinity(3)), the number 666 means something like "triple failure." It often seems as if Satan and his henchmen will destroy the church, but they always fall short.
The question is, did people of the time use "sine"?
The earliest uses of trigonometric functions were related to the chords of a circle, and the recognition that the length of the chord seperated by a given angle x was (in modern terms) 2sin(x/2). The Greek astronomer and mathematician Hipparchus produced the first known table of chords in 140 BC. BUT, his work was further developed by astronomers Menelaus (ca. AD 100) and Ptolemy (ca. AD 100), who relied on Babylonian observations and traditions. Since John the author of Revelations was exiled to the island of Patmos, it seems remote enough that he would never have heard of Hipparchus at all
somehow i doubt that John was thinking of The number "phi" when writing revelations,and if he did, I think he would have used it openly

Is phi the same as pi?
Strophe and antistrophe.
Those are all very interesting historical milestones but correct me if im wrong, but didn't John receive visions from god himself? I guess maybe the point im trying to make is it possible that John could have been revealed this, not understanding it himself? I understand thats an unworkable situation logically speaking since there's no way to prove it.

You can find phi in nature. Just shows how complex even a single leaf can be. I think it was coincidence that you find the number 666. 6Ugly,6liar,6sex.

Yes, it is obviuos that JOhn and many other authors that wrote in the bible had visions and were often devinely inspired. But also you need to understnad that all of those authors were limited in understand as to what they knew and experinaced. When Paul was describing the Armor of God, he was using the armor on Roman soldiers to help describe it, he never thought of medival plate mail, moderan combat riot gear., or even a hardend space suit.
Mathematically, Phi is the division of something into two unequal parts, in such a way that the lesser is to the greater as the greater is to the whole.
An interesting Biblical relationship to Phi is the number of the Beast 666. First, let’s calculate phi. Phi is equal to the square root of 5 (diagonal of a one by two rectangle), which is equal to 2.2360679775. Next we add 1 which increases the number to 3.2360679775. The next step is to divide by 2, which equals 1.61803398875.If we divide Phi by two again (the musical octave) we get 0.8090169943749. Now here is where it gets interesting. If you take the sine of 666, you get negative -0.8090169943749 and multiplying this by 2 (musical octave) equals –1.61803398875!
For anyone that needs a little refresher course, the sine function gives the ratio of the opposite side of a given angle in a right triangle to the hypotenuse. Also remember that Phi is calculated from the hypotenuse of a 1 by 2 rectangle. From this mathematical exercise, it appears that the Beast is the exact opposite process of Phi, where Phi represents growth, light and life and negative Phi represents decay, darkness and death.
Six Sigma Security
ςix σigma Σecurity is as an ideological concept, syncretizing the mathematical, statistical, and data driven methodology Six Sigma with Security.
ςix σigma Σecurity's objective is to develop a worldwide initiative dedicated to improving Global Security through the ςix σigma Σecurity methodology.
ςix σigma Σecurity's global security initiative encompasses Societal Security, Corporate Security, and Individual Security.
Although a corporation, ςix σigma Σecurity is first and foremost an ideological concept.
What is Six Sigma? Six Sigma Is a rigorous and systematic methodology that utilizes information and statistical analysis to measure and improve operational performance, practices, and systems by identifying and preventing 'defects' in order to anticipate and exceed expectations of all stakeholders.
Mathematically, Sigma(the lower-case Greek letter σ) is used to represent the standard deviation (a measure of variation) of a statistical population.The term "six sigma" comes from the notion that if one has six standard deviations between the mean of a process and the nearest specification limit, there will be practically no items that fail to meet the specifications.
By comparison, while 6 sigma is near perfect, 1 sigma is 31% efficient, and 7 sigma is perfect.
Six Sigma Security supports the continued development of technologies that improve Global Security through Human Identification.
These technologies are part of the Integrated Security Identification System (ISIS), which include National ID Cards, ePassports, RFID, and the Human Implantable MicroChip.
