You might enjoy reading Richard Buckminster "Bucky" Fuller's writing on Numerology. (You may have heard of "buckyballs" named after him). He liked looking for patterns. Here is page 1 of his writing:

Do you have a resource recommendation?
And do you have a comment about regularities in the decimal number system? Rodin said his math has no anomalies. Is that a reference to regularities in the decimal number system?
So he says it's not scientific, and in fact some of the things he writes about seem kind of wacky to me, but you'll probably like it for that reason? But I find a lot of the patterns he wrote about interesting. You have to click the link at the bottom of each page to get to the next one, and there's no link to the previous page so I use the back arrow on my browser to go back.
Numerologists do not pretend to be scientific.
They are just fascinated
With correspondence of their key digits
With various happenstances of existence.
They have great fun
Identifying events and things
And assuming significant insights
Which from time to time
Seem well justified,
But what games numerologists
Chose to play with these tools
May or may not have been significant.
Possibly by coincidence, however,
And possibly because of number integrity itself
Some of the integer intergrating results
Are found to correspond elegantly
With experimentally proven, physical laws
And have subsequently proven to be
Infinitely reliable.
Half a century ago I became interested in seeing
How numerologists played their games.
I found myself increasingly intrigued
And continually integrating digits.
Mr. Rodin has discovered a series of regularities in the decimal number system heretofore undocumented in mathematics.

Specifically, the expression "regularities" in the decimal number system?

Mary, the digitized sound of my flatulence contains a sequence of numbers heretofore undocumented in mathematics . . .
I started looking for something appropriate for you, but haven't found anything yet. The sources I used weren't purely mathematical, but involved computer hardware and software design which encompassed binary, octal, and hexadecimal. Since computers work or worked in those bases, I had to learn them to learn computers but if you used my sources you'd probably get way too much computer stuff you don't want.

Perhaps you misunderstood my question.
In your response to my request for resources to read up on numerical patterns, you recommended that I study patterns in other numbering systems in addition to the base 10 numbering system.
Do you have a recommendation for numbering systems in general, which will give me the perspective that you suggested?
My understanding is very much like milkyway12's post so I'll quote that here:
Secondly, do you understand what Blake said here:

That's pretty much how I see it too, and to avoid re-quoting the entire long post, note milkyway12 points out that the supposed discoveries by Rodin, actually were not first discovered by him, unless you count opening a book and reading what someone else wrote and then proclaiming "look what I discovered written here!" because yeah, it was pretty much that kind of a discovery, which as you can see involved his distortion of modulo math and casting out nines, though I still haven't figured out how he used that to arrive at 116256479883743529.

116256479883743529, i am still trying to figure out how he got this sequence ....... it makes no sense, but here is his explanation.
And the 9 demonstrates the omni dimension which is the higher dimensional flux emanation called Spirit that always occurs within the center of the magnetic field lines. The last number left to be explained from The MATHEMATICAL FINGERPRINT OF GOD is the number 9. The number nine is Energy being manifested in a single moment event of occurrence in our physical world of creation. It is unique because it is the focal center by being the only number identifying with the vertical upright axis. It is the singularity or the Primal Point of Unity. The number nine never changes and is linear. For example all multiples of 9 equal 9. 9x1=9, 9x2=18, but 1+8=9, 9x3=27, but 2+7=9. This is because it is emanating in a straight line from the center of mass out of the nucleus of every atom, and from out of the singularity of a black hole. It is complete, revealing perfection, and has no parity because it always equals itself. The number nine is the missing particle in the universe known as Dark Matter.
Wow! He really surprised with just how much .... he um, well, what was he saying again, and how did this explain sequence / pattern he came up with? I dont see it.
Expert in what?

Damn. As I recall 547000 described himself as a "math nerd," but I see he hasn't posted since March.
I don't read his resume that way. He may also claim to be a theoretical physicist now that he's created a "theory of everything", but I wouldn't call him that, at least not until his hypothesis is proven (which probably won't happen).

Subject: The Rodin Coil
To Whom It May Concern:
. . . It became clear to me that Mr. Rodin's work was a synthesis of numerical patterns which had previously been overlooked by conventional science and mathematics. . . .
. . . It is important to keep in mind that when we refer to the toroid, the term " Doubling Circuit" includes both of the positive (1-2-4-8-7-5) and negative (5-7-8-4-2-1) sequences that we sandwiched around the 6-9-3-3-9-6 (also called The Gap Space or Equipotential Major Groove) to form the grid that makes up the surface of it.
These three lines of numbers wrap around the top of the torus, go in through the middle, curve around the side at a slight inclinaton [sic] to make an s-curve, and then come up around the other end from the bottom to meet themselves head-on, making a yin-yang-like shape. . .
I didn't find anything suitable for you to read on other base numbering systems. But I made this table for you using Rodin's perverted modulo arithmetic, to show how much more elegant the doubling looks in the bases that engineers have used to make computers work (this is no accident; there are reasons engineers selected these particular bases, which is partly because of the elegant way they deal with doubling). Note I didn't even need the digits column in the other bases, because all the other digits are zero, so the "Rodin-style modulo computation" is trivial. Compare and contrast the patterns:

So not only is it more mathematically elegant on doubling, but hexadecimal has real-world uses, which is more than I can say for Rodin's 1-2-4-8-7-5 pattern in decimal. I don't agree with everything Blake says, but I agree that scientists and mathematicians have not placed any special significance on this 1-2-4-8-7-5 pattern. Is there any reason they should? If so, I haven't seen any reason yet, other than a nonsensical proclamation by Rodin, which is not really a reason.
Hexadecimal numbers are a compact way of representing large numbers. They are useful in computer programming because computers use bytes as their main unit of information. A byte can represent an alphanumeric character or one of 256 decimal numbers. It normally requires 8 binary digits to represent a byte but in hexadecimal only two are required.
In the RGB Color System used in computers there are 256 possible levels of brightness for each component in an RGB (Red, Green, Blue) color. So the red component, blue component and the green component can each be represented by a byte, or two hexadecimal digits. An entire RGB color can therefore be represented by six hexadecimal digits.

I found a typo in the previous table anyway, in the last two entries of the decimal digits column which were apparently auto-filled by excel that I didn't overwrite, so I re-uploaded the table with that correction and clarified headings, and resized it using bbcode. How's that?
