# The Number 153 and the Vesica Piscis

Hi guys and gals! I was recently reading about the Vesica Pisces and thought I'd share with you what I found.

The vesica piscis is a shape which is the intersection of two circles with the same radius, intersecting in such a way that the center of each circle lies on the circumference of the other. The name literally means the "bladder of a fish" in Latin.

Vesica Piscis ----------->

Here's old Jesus himself chilling out in the Vesica Piscis

The mathematical ratio of the width of the vesica piscis to its height is the square root of 3, or approximately 1.7320508... (since if straight lines are drawn connecting the centers of the two circles with each other and with the two points where the circles intersect, two equilateral triangles join along an edge). The ratios 265:153 = 1.7320261... and 1351:780 = 1.7320513... are two of a series of approximations to this value, each with the property that no better approximation can be obtained with smaller whole numbers.

Ok, so I hope I haven't lost any readers so far due to the Jesus picture.

Please stick with me here even though I'm about to quote the bible, ok?

21:11 Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three and although there were so many, the net was not torn.

So the Vesica Piscis in latin is 'bladder of a fish'. It is mathematically linked to the number 153. Jesus catches 153 fish in a net. Interesting enough eh? Yeah, but check this out.

153 is:

the smallest number which can be expressed as the sum of cubes of its digits:
153 = 13 + 53 + 33

equal to the sum of factorials of number from 1 to 5:
153 = 1! + 2! + 3! + 4! + 5!
and

The sum of digits of 153 is a perfect square:
1 + 5 + 3 = 9 = 32
That's a big one for me.

The sum of aliquot divisors of 153 is also a perfect square:
1 + 3 + 9 + 17 + 51 = 81 = 92 Aliquot divisors of a number are all the divisors of that number excluding the number itself but including 1. It is seen that the sum of aliquot divisors of 153 is the square of the sum of the digits of 153.
awesome

On adding the number 153 to its reverse,504 is obtained, whose square is the smallest square which can be expressed as the product of two different numbers which are reverse of one another:
153 + 351 = 504

5042 = 288 x 882

It can be expressed as the sum of all integers from 1 to 17. In other words, 153 is the 17th triangular number. Since reverse of 153, i.e. 351 is also a triangular number, 153 can be termed as a reversible triangular number.
Check out the first pic on this thread.

Number 153 is also a Harshad number(also called Niven number), i.e. it is divisible by the sum of its own digits:
153 / (1 + 5 + 3) = 17

Since reverse of 153, i.e. 351 is also a Harshad number(or Niven Number), 153 can be termed as a reversible Harshad number(or reversible Niven Number).
wow!! it just gets cooler and cooler.

t can be expressed as the product of two numbers formed from its own digits:
153 = 3 * 51

So I am just getting into this, I can't stop thinking about it. Numbers have always fascinated me. I recently read Rik Clays work regarding 11. It is interesting, to say the least, 1111x1111=1234321 ---a pyramid if graphed.

So what say you ATS, what does it all mean???
I can't wait to hear what everyone thinks!

and for the grand finale :

65359477124183 x 17 = 1111111111111111
65359477124183 x 34 = 2222222222222222
65359477124183 x 51 = 3333333333333333
65359477124183 x 68 = 4444444444444444
65359477124183 x 85 = 5555555555555555
65359477124183 x 102 = 6666666666666666
65359477124183 x 119 = 7777777777777777
65359477124183 x 136 = 8888888888888888
65359477124183 x 153 = 9999999999999999

You're excited because a bunch of random numbers have something to do with 153? So were hopping off the 1111 bandwagon?

And, since when does

The sum of digits of 153 is a perfect square:
1 + 5 + 3 = 9 = 32

I don't recall ever learning that 9 equals 32.
9 is a perfect square. But what is with the 32?

Sorry charlie, the exponents didn't copy and paste, didn't realize it.

Interesting to see who the math geeks are here. I've always had a 'thing' for numbers..... mental math, number and operation 'tricks', etc.

By the way, 153 has always been my lucky number. Really. It attracted me to this thread!

ok I have to admit I am lost. I do not see any significant connection. Nor do i understand what the conspiracy is here, but thats ok. I do however have one question. Are you saying that Jesus' name is Simon Peter?

posted on Jan, 26 2011 @ 08:58 PM
Nice thread vermonster! I love this kind of stuff too, it's kind of like numerical gymnastics & a lot of fun to play around with.

Here's some more to your fishy tail (get it?!!).....

As you already pointed out, 153 has a very close relationship with 17, which if you follow tarot is the number of The Star card which also has the Hebrew letter 'Tzaddi' assigned to it. This means 'fish hook' in Hebrew.
I bet there's tons more in this too.

S+F!

Why, may I ask is it your lucky number? Just a random number you chose?

Incidentally, The star card is about deception. How's THAT for a plot thickener?? If you don't get it... dig a little.

So the Pythagoreans used 153 : 265 to represent the square root of 3 long before the bible was written. Why include that number 153 in the bible? Why tell a story about a huge fish the size of a whale swallowing Jonah for 3 days? Same 3 days Jesus spent in the cave before resurrection after the "cross"? Why is the Babylonian antikythera device divided into 235 segments? Why are there 47 degrees of latitude between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn? Why are the number of degrees in the compass and the number of days in the year divisible by 5?
Why did Edgar Allan Poe attend West Point?

My address at birth, my mom's birth address, my rep.# as a stockbroker, all 153

153 is the first three digits of my driver's license and serial # of my old Schwinn and Ruger .357

Never had to use the Ruger, so it must be a lucky number!

Excellent post vermonster! I have recently been studying sacred geometry and have become fascinated with the plethora of information encoded in this simple yet beautiful form. Thank you for bringing so much more to the table than I had anticipated. Alas, reality is a mysterious mistress.

Take a look at this video and note how many places we can find the square root of three. Amazing!
The relationship between the insphere, intersphere and circumsphere in various geometrical forms!

Unreal.

Thanks for the video. I snagged a screen cap of it as you can see.

I am in awe. I can look at this pic in so many ways. I see a three dimensional cube or triangles. 3 3 3!

I was curious vermonster... Do you know why the the first image in your post (number triangle) has colour changes after 1,3,9 and 33?

posted on Jan, 27 2011 @ 08:59 AM

The number 153 is the 17th triangular number. The colours show that 153 is also the sum of the first five positive factorials.
