The numbers associated with the tetrahedron, the simplest and most basic of the "perfect solids," are 19.47 or 19.5 and "3" or "33".
The numbers "19.5" and "3" or "33" should be repetitive themes, because these are tetrahedral constants; the tetrahedron being the first "perfect" solid.
Also, Pythagorean "perfect solid" positions essentially which are defined in this study as ones in which the planet or star is at tetrahedral values of 3 or 33 degrees or 19.5 degrees altitude, longitude, etc., will be considered "prominent positions."
The symbolism of Saturn being "19.45 minutes" from an exact conjunction with Sirius is also very striking. Sirius is itself 19 degrees from the Taurus/Gemini border; thus, the reason for assigning it a "19" number. This "19 and 19" symbolism is interesting because of the emphasis of Egyptian ritual and belief on the importance of the star Sirius. But also, note that Saturn is 19.45 minutes from Sirius, which rounds up to 19.5, one of the numbers associated with the "perfect solids" theory of Pythagoras.
At the same time, Saturn is the "tetrahedral" altitude of 33 degrees above the horizon, 33 degrees again being a Pythagorean "perfect solids" number. The presence of the tetrahedral numbers 19.5 and 33 were to be an additional test of the theory as to whether the time of midnight at Giza on 1-1-4713 BC was a likely time. The numbers are present here.

Batter my heart, three person'd God; for, you
As yet but knocke, breathe, shine, and seek to mend,
That I may rise, and stand, o'erthrow mee and bend
Your force, to breake, blowe, burn and make me new.
I, like an usurpt towne, to'another due,
Labor to'admit you, but Oh, to no end,
Reason your viceroy in mee, mee should defend,
But is captiv'd, and proves weake or untrue.
Yet dearely'I love you, and would be loved faine,
But am betrothed unto your enemie:
Divorce mee, 'untie, or breake that knot again,
Take mee to you, imprison mee, for I
Except you'enthrall mee, never shall be free,
Nor ever chaste, except you ravish mee.

The guys from Tool are all O.T.O./Thelemites. Not Masons. I've seen pictures of them performing rituals with Alex Grey, the guy who did the artwork for Lateralus and 10,000 Days.
