# 2 Divided by 3?????

This is very strange if you ask me.

According to the calculator included with windows xp

2 divided by 3 = 0.666666666666666666666666666666667

thats right 32 6's then a SEVEN, how is this possible???

strange also 3 and 2 are the initial numbers of the calculation.

Is this why there is so much mystery to do with the number 23?

it most likely rounded up after what the program thought was an appropriate amount of digits.

and in my opinion 19 is better.

A calculator will add one to the final number of a continuing string of numbers. This is to signify that it is repeating. This is one reason that the number 23 is so occult. Also there are 46 chromosomes in the human body that is 23 pairs.

Uhm ... perhaps it's limited to a given number of iterations, and then it rounds up or down accordingly.

?

Calculator programming rounds the last digit it is able to display up to the next number when dealing with endlessly repeating answers. It's actually 0.66 with endless sixes. Do it with long division and the remainder will always be 2..

I am unsure wether that has anything to do with 23... but my first encounter with 23 came from a biblical number study.. Acts 27:37 Altogether there were 276 of us on board... 276/12=23... also if you add up all the years from creation to the flood there is a total of 1656 years, 1656/72=23.. 1656/6= 276.. just thought that was interesting..

edited to add that 276 is the 23rd triangulation.. 1+2+3+4+5+6+7....+23= 276

type "2 divided by 3" in google, they only go to 9 decimal places... chopping off the remaining repeating numbers is a function of the calculator.

Yes i agree 0.66666 recurring and that is the truth, but why does the computer lie to us and round up the 33rd place?

It is also a folklore paranoia propagated by the media. The movie Number 23 is a very good movie with a twist ending. It's intersting on how the hype of the movie played on the fears of the masses. Go see the movie to put your mind at ease!

It's for convenience in calculations. Nobody wants to type that many numbers, but if you need it to nearly that accuracy, you account for the other sixes by rounding it up to 7.

It's a function of "how we do math" rules. It does the same for any repeating number above 4.

This has nothing to do with the movie 23 lol.

I should have been a little more clear, the mystery associated with 23 by people such as Robert Anton Willson and Willaim burroughs.

And thank you but my mind is at ease.

Try and find the square route of 2, thats even more interesting.

and yep a 7 thrown on to stop the choas.

some would claim hes the mofuggin DEVIL!

The Bible also mentions 2/3 not just because 2/3 = 0.666... where the result refers to the notorious number of the beast, but also because expressions a/b and a:b are related. We use the latter expression to indicate a ratio. But a:b or c:d are divisions used to extract prophecies from the Bible. If it's true, then the Bible must specifically say so.

Here is how you find the reference: 2 and 3 are numbers followed by 4. Since the 4th book is called Numbers, you follow numbers 2 and 3 there. In other words, you ask what numbers 2:3 stand for and Numbers 2:3 gives you the answer:
www.biblegateway.com...:3;&version=31;

On the east, toward the sunrise, the divisions . . .

That means chapters:verses are numerical divisions, not just a convenient way to mark passages.

The result of the divisions is used to extract prophecies. But that doesn't apply to all Bible text, though. Here is an example: There are two major prophets: Isaiah and Ezekiel. Which one would you choose to apply the 2:3 decoding technique?

It has to be Isaiah, because Isaiah is the 23rd book of the Bible. But it works only with the New International Version. The older versions, like King James Bible, use archaic English that is hard to read. That's why Numbers 2:3 in King James Bible never mentions the word "divisions."

So remember that 2:3 = 0.66... You write down only first two sixes for the division and that goes for any a:b.
Why?
That's because the Book of Isaiah comprises 66 chapters.

Calculators round numbers too great for them to calculate or display. 0.6666666... is 0.7, hence the 7 at the end.

As for numerology, it's nonsense. No meaning, short of what people consciously attribute to it. The number 23 is just a number in an arbitrary counting system arbitrarily created by arbitrary beings - humans. Saying it has some sort of mystical significance is as ridiculous as saying the sandwich I just ate is a portent of Jesus's second coming. It's just a sandwich. Delicious, but just that.

for the artists among us, 2/3 is allso the golden ratio to get that perfect shot/picture etc.

Sry for the one-liner, but I thought it was interesting enough to throw into the discussion.

posted on Oct, 8 2008 @ 08:37 AM

Nope - the golden ratio is 1.61803399.

posted on Oct, 8 2008 @ 08:56 AM

hmm, damn you're right

I almost allways try to build a picture/image/shot with the subject framed at 2/3rd in the frame, according to the "golden ratio". Guess it's a simplification to use as a rule of thumb.

forget my previous post

anymore im cant find myself intruiged by anything that numbers do. Mathematics is supposed to be a way of describing complex systems in the simplest way possible, however i believe that our mathematical system to be quite flawed if it is supposed to give the simplest explanation. For example it takes the first 362 pages of the principia mathematica to prove 1+1=2. now the last time i checked that was not a simple explanation of anything

You can use the atomic weight of gold, which is 79, to arrive at the exact golden ratio: 79 is a prime number immediately preceded by another prime, which is 73. Add both primes together

73 + 79 = 152

and then break 152 into the golden ratio formula:

(1 + square root 5) / 2 = 1.618033 . . .

The problem is that one needs to memorize the atomic weight of gold and the prime number that precedes 79. You can memorize 73 when you relate it to gold: the USA went definitely off the gold standard in 1973.

I've found this in the Book of Isaiah in the chapter that deals with prophecies regarding gold.
