The Pythagoreans were very much into their numbers (obviously), it does make sense that numbers have some meaning behind them (and energy). Most, if
not all things can be put into numbers from what i understand. Everything resonates with a certain frequency including the earth, pyramids, people
etc. Im not entirely sure of the significance of 33 or 33.33 yet but have my ears open as it were.
I have a particular interest in Tetractys
en.wikipedia.org... mainly because i have a fascination with hexagons (i believe that a
hexagon looks like a cube and thus our 3D universe and I have yet to find a higher geometric shape in nature). If you look at the tetracts you will
notice a hexagon in it, also read what is said about the tetracts; also follow the link provided and scroll down to the bottom and follow the link to
decads and see what it says (follow the other links as well, all very interesting).
im still looking into the calculations mentioned in the original post and also researching the history behind nautical mile and hopefully should be
able to work out why there are anomalies with the coordinates for mount Hermon. Will let you all know what i find.
What i have found so far may not be of direct relevance to some but i feel it is. Firstly:
The properties of numbers, the manner in which they behave, was evidence, indeed ‘proof’, to the Pythagoreans of the divine order. To the modern
rationalist, these properties are simply natural consequences of an abstract system with no inner meaning or cosmic significance. The study of these
properties amounts to mathematical games diversions’. Finally, it is up to the individual to choose between the camps, but it is not a choice to be
made lightly; upon it hinges, ultimately, the whole of ones philosophy. Esoterically, because all numbers are to be regarded as divisions of unity,
the mathematical relationship a number bears to unity is a key to its nature. Both 3 and 7 are ‘perpetual motion’ numbers. Divided into unity,
they divide infinitely.
1 ^3 = .3333333333333...
1 r 7= .
1428571428571...
3: the number of relationship, of ‘the word’, of mystical trinity, three-in-one.
7: the number of growth, of ‘process’, of harmony, gives the same recurring sequence of seven when divided into unity. Note, the enneagram
following this sequence.
J.A.West – Serpent in the sky, the high wisdom of ancient Egypt
"Tri-dasa," or three times ten (30), alludes to the Vedic deities, in round numbers, or more accurately 33 - a sacred number. They are the 12
Adityas, the 8 Vasus, the 11 Rudras, and 2 Aswins - the twin sons of the Sun and the Sky. This is the root-number of the Hindu Pantheon, which
enumerates 33 crores or over three hundred millions of gods and goddesses.

And we all know that arsenic is lethal to carbon based species (as far as i know) and it has an atomic value/proton number of 33 (number of protons
found in the nucleus of an atom)

If anyone can point out any further anomalies which havent been addressed or overlooked please post your comments. Someone has already mentioned the
article is riddled with errors, can you point them all out please?
