Nature, especially music, works on a natural basis. The human tendency to "round off" is never found in nature. The (in)human decimal (Metric) system has naught to do with naturally occuring phenomena which seems to prefer whole number ratios and proportions whether base 3, 5, 7 or 12 or other.
How does Rodin's "mathematics" hold up in base 3, 5, or 7, where the symbol "9" doesn't even exist?

It seems to me like the people who seem to be know-it-alls are the ones who claim science is a religion, mainstream science is wrong, and they know this because they know more than the scientists who spend their entire professional career studying a topic. Sound like anyone you know?
I agree that base 3, 5, or 7 or other bases are mathematically valid numbering systems just as valid as the base 10 we often use. Two other bases that I've used are base 2 (binary) and base 16 (aka hexadecimal) which are useful in computer applications. Now do you agree that there is no "9" symbol in base 3, 5, or 7?

So, you're agreeing with the quote?

- Religious texts can contain valid clues/information about how the universe works.
- Length of time studying a topic is irrelevant when the evidence being considered is limited to what is allowed in by powerful vested interests uninterested in the truth.

Like the constant π, e is irrational; it is not a ratio of integers; and it is transcendental
The Ennead: three threes
Nine is the triad of triads, the first odd square number, and with it something extraordinary occurs, for the first nine numbers can be arranged in a magic square where every line of three in any direction has the same total. This ancient number pattern was first spotted fou rmillennia ago on the shell of a divine turtle emerging from the river Lo in China.
Three times three is one more than two times two times two, and the ratio between 9 and 8 defines the crucial whole tone in music, the 9:8 seed from which the scale emerges, as the difference between the two most simple harmonies in the octave, the fifth 3:2, and the fourth 4:3.
There are 9 regular three-dimensional shapes: the 5 platonic solids and the four stellar kepler-poinsot polyhedra (Book3). 9 appears in our bodies as the cross-section of the tentacle-like cilia, which move things around our surfaces, and the bundles of microtubes in centrioles, essential for cell division.
9 is the celestial number of order, and many ancient traditions speak of nine worlds, spheres, or levels of reality. cats know. they have nine lives, dress to the nines whenever possible, and seem to spend most of their time on cloud nine, wherever that is.

I was about to compliment you for making the first claim about 9 in this thread I've seen in a long time that's actually true, as we do see nine microtubule doublets in primary cilia, though those are doublets so isn't it really sort of like 18 microtubules? Also, in motile cilia there are two more single microtubules in the middle for a total of 11 (9 doublets plus two singles, or if you're counting the microtubules instead of doublets, 18+2=20 total microtubules). So I'm not so sure 9 is that sacred when those factors are included but at least there's some truth to the claim.

don't write off the manifestation of 9 yet. 9 is just three threes. the first odd number in 3 dimensions (cubed).
excerpt from "Quadrivium":

Anyway it's nice to see a few real facts thrown in with the superstitious and religious claims...it keeps people guessing about which is which (if they don't know any better)! Cats do have some amazing abilities to survive falls, but they don't really have nine lives.
Most are surprised to learn that a cat stands a greater chance of survival if it falls from a higher place than from a lower place. New York veterinarians gathered data from their feline patients, which clearly support this fact. Ten percent of their patients died after falling from 2-6 stories, while only five percent of the fatalities occurred when their patients fell from 7-32 stories.
