The minimum deviation angle for the primary bow [of a rainbow] is 137.5° according to Wikipedia. This is known as the Rainbow Angle. A circle is 360 degrees, so the ratio of the rainbow angle to the circle is therefore the square of the golden ratio!
Feynman's Conjecture: A general connection of the quantum coupling constants with p was anticipated by R. P. Feynman in a remarkable leap of intuition some 40 years ago as can be seen from the following much quoted extract from one of Feynman's books (The Strange Theory of Light and Matter):
Immediately you would like to know where this number for a coupling comes from: is it related to pi or perhaps to the base of natural logarithms? Nobody knows. It's one of the greatest damn mysteries of physics: a magic number that comes to us with no understanding by man. You might say the "hand of God" wrote that number, and "we don't know how He pushed his pencil."
137 is the odds that an electron will absorb a single photon.
- Dr. Bill Riemers
is a dimensionless physical constant characterizing the strength of the electromagnetic interaction between elementary charged particles
determining the strength of the interaction between electrons and photons
Max Born believed that would the value of alpha differ, the universe would degenerate. Thus, he asserted that 1/137 is a law of nature.
In the early 21st century, multiple physicists, including Stephen Hawking in his book A Brief History of Time, began exploring the idea of a multiverse, and the fine-structure constant was one of several universal constants that suggested the idea of a fine-tuned universe.
137 = The number of atoms in a chlorophyll molecule, for which the chemical formula is C55H72MgN4O5
Is there a number at the root of the universe? A primal number that everything in the world hinges on? This question exercised many great minds of the twentieth century, among them the groundbreaking physicist Wolfgang Pauli and the famous psychoanalyst Carl Jung. Their obsession with the power of certain numbers including 137, which describes the atom’s fine-structure constant and has great Kabbalistic significance. This led them to develop an unlikely friendship and to embark on a joint mystical quest reaching deep into medieval alchemy, dream interpretation, and the Chinese Book of Changes. 137 explores the profound intersection of modern science with the occult, but above all it is the tale of an extraordinary, fruitful friendship between two of the greatest thinkers of our times.

For the orbit of the Moon around Earth, the plane is taken to be the ecliptic, not the equatorial plane. The gravitational pull of the Sun upon the Moon causes its nodes to gradually precess westward, completing a cycle in approximately 18.6 years.
Just as the fine-structure constant relates to the absorption of a photon (light) by an electron (matter), the ultimate symbolism of the number 137 in the Kabbalah is the receiving (“kabbalah”) of the Infinite Light—Ohr Ein Sof (1)—into ten vessels-sephirot comprised of the three (3) sephirot of sechel and seven (7) lower sephirot-midot = 137.
The number 137 comes up quite often in the Torah.
It is the most common age for the biblical characters.
Abraham is 137 years old when he binds his son Isaac in the Torah Portion of Vayeira. When you understand Kabbalah, you realize this relates directly to the idea of an “electron absorbing a photon” or desire connecting to Light. We must bind our ego (Isaac), the negative desire in order to connect to the hidden, concealed realm of Light (Abraham). That’s what the story of Abraham binding his son Isaac is all about.
Moses’ father lived to 137, according to the Torah.
Ishmael lived to 137, according to the Torah.
Levi lived to 137, according to the Torah.
Levi is the seed of the Tribe of Levi. What is also amazing is that the phrase “The Cohen & the Levites” has the numerical value of 137.
Noah (1) had 3 sons (3) and 70 (7) descendants. There’s that wily 137 again!
Adam (1) led to 3 Patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (3) which led to 70 family members (7). 137!
There are 304,805 letters in the Torah.
What what happens if you reverse the numbers in pairs: 50+84+03=137.
Moses’ Tabernacle, the earthly dwelling place of God was 13.7 meters long.
Note: In 1837 Egyptologist Howard Vyse found two of the original side casing blocks at the base of the pyramid, 5 ft x 8 ft x 12 ft, with an angle of 51 degrees, 51 minutes cut on one of the 12 ft. sides. Well, 51 degrees 51 minutes = 186,600 arc seconds which approximates our present measurement of the maximum speed of light in MILES per second (186282.397) with a margin of error
of 17 / 10,000th or 317 miles/sec
Please note the Great Pyramid has a missing apex, a pyamidion of some 33 x 33 x 32 feet high of 11,616 cubic feet. The capstone too is missing, a capstone probably of some 1,037 cubic feet?
The smaller the solar parallax, the greater the distance between the Sun and the Earth: a solar parallax of 15? is equivalent to an Earth–Sun distance of 13,750 Earth radii.
Noah’s Ark was 300 cubits >> 450 feet which converts to 137 meters long!

Lederman expounded on the significance of the number in his book The God Particle: If the Universe Is the Answer, What Is the Question?, noting that not only was it the inverse of the fine-structure constant, but was also related to the probability that an electron will emit or absorb a photon—i.e., Feynman's conjecture.[n 1] He added that it also "contains the crux of electromagnetism (the electron), relativity (the velocity of light), and quantum theory (Planck's constant). It would be less unsettling if the relationship between all these important concepts turned out to be one or three or maybe a multiple of pi. But 137?” The number 137, according to Lederman, "shows up naked all over the place,” meaning that scientists on any planet in the universe using whatever units they have for charge or speed, and whatever their version of Planck’s constant may be, will all come up with 137, because it is a pure number. Lederman recalled that Richard Feynman had even suggested that all physicists put a sign in their offices with the number 137 to remind them of just how much they do not know.
Jewish-American physicist and Nobel Laureate Leon M. Lederman intentionally numbered his home 137. Prof. Lederman explained the significance of the number in his book “The God Particle: If the Universe Is the Answer, What Is the Question?”, noting that not only was it the inverse of the fine-structure constant, but it was also related to the probability that an electron will emit or absorb a photon. He further noted that it also “contains the crux of electromagnetism (the electron), relativity (the velocity of light), and quantum theory (Planck’s constant). It would be less unsettling if the relationship between all these important concepts turned out to be one or three or maybe a multiple of pi. But 137?” Lederman wrote that the number 137, “shows up naked all over the place,” i.e., scientists on any planet in the universe using whatever units they have for charge or speed, or Planck’s constant, will all come up with 137, because it is a pure number.
Tao Te Ching - Lao Tzu - # 42
The Tao begot one.
One begot two.
Two begot three.
And three begot the ten thousand things.
The ten thousand things carry yin and embrace yang.
They achieve harmony by combining these forces.
