When you look at the numbe 12 it has alot of significance,its a composite number, the smallest number with exactly six divisors, its proper divisors being 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12. Twelve is also a highly composite number, the next one being 24 . ok lets look at some things----

12 were apostles of Christ.
12 months for a baby to be one
12 hours on a clock alos 12 +12 = 24 hours in a day 365 days= 1 year, so there are 12 months in 1 year
the letter TWELVE has 6 letters 6+6= 12
In astrology, there are 12 signs in the Zodiac
December, the 12th month of a year
There are normally twelve pairs of ribs in the human body
Twelve people have walked on Earth's moon.
There are 12 in a dozen.

There are twenty-four hours in a day in all, with twelve hours for a half a day. The hours are numbered from one to twelve for both the ante meridiem (a.m.) half of the day and the post meridiem (p.m.) half of the day. 12:00 after a.m. and before p.m. (in the middle of the day) is midday or noon, and 12:00 after p.m. and before a.m. (in the middle of the night) is midnight. A new day is considered to start with the stroke of midnight. Furthermore, the basic units of time (60 seconds, 60 minutes, 24 hours) can all perfectly divide by twelve

The importance of 12 in Judaism and Christianity can be found in the Bible. The biblical Jacob had 12 sons, who were the progenitors of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, while the New Testament describes twelve apostles of Jesus; when Judas Iscariot was disgraced, a meeting was held (Acts) to add Matthias to complete the number twelve once more.

so i guess when we try to do research just take a look at 12 the number and what a great
significance it has maybe something will happen in 2012

anyone else have some cool 12 facts

hope you find this useful, if you want to know more about this number, and think you are obsessed with it, you may want to check out this site: Number12Secret.com The way he talks about the number reminds me of the film "The Number 23", where a man thinks his life is revolved around that number... It actually scares me, it's just a number!

There are also supposed to be 12 strands of DNA that correspond to the 12 chakras.

Due to genetic modification humans only have 2, which correspond to the root and sacral chakra.

That's why all we do is worry about sex (attention) and security (approval).

Such a shame.

I don't disagree with you that there are a lot of instances you can correspond the number twelve to, but you could also do the same for other numbers. Basically the numbers one through seven I could compile similar lists for. I'm not trying to rain on your parade, I'm just saying that it is also very likely just coincidence.

The real number is sixty, of which twelve is a divisor. In ancient times, base 60 was used for everything, because it works the best. That is why there are 360 degrees in a circle, 60 minutes on your watch, everything.

This is why the metric system is retarded. Also it was invented in France.

On one hand you can count off the numbers from 1 to 12 by touching the joints of your fingers with your thumb. There are many good arguments for counting in twelves thather than in tens

Leonardo da Vinci and the number 12

the works of Leonardo da Vinci are full of hidden meanings. I’ve also wrote about that subject not that long ago in the context of the book “The Da Vinci Code”. However, since I’m not inclined to make final opinions based solely on one crime story, no matter how insightful it had been, I’ve decided to conduct my own little research about Leonardo, mostly in order to find out whether Leonardo and to what extent understood the importance of the number twelve. This research was done along with an extensive journey across Europe, which lasted 28 days, where I wanted to experience and learn a great deal, and from which I’ve just recently come back home. That’s also the only reason that this web site has not been updated during the past month.

In order to found out more about Leonardo I visited the Amboise castle in France, the place where Leonardo spent the last few years of his life before dying. At present, the castle hosts a very interesting museum dedicated to Leonardo, that I highly recommend to visit, and while I was there I was lucky enough to see an exhibition in occasion of Leonardo and dedicated primarily to his masterpiece “The Last Supper”. Apparently other people too were inspired with Dan Brown’s novel and thus I pay honor to him once more.

Nevertheless, here is what I’ve found out after a closer look into Leonardo’s inheritance. Firstly, it is without doubt that all of Leonardo’s paintings have several meanings. You might call them “hidden”, but the meanings are indeed hidden only to superficial people, without a sense for detail and without much education. In reality, everything has been laid out in the open on a very small area of a painting but Leonardo showed his geniality since not even those limitations impeded him to confuse even the greatest minds. For example, I’ve personally felt ashamed after realizing how much it took me to notice a simple fact: that the “Last Supper” was taking place during the day. That detail alone for numerous orthodox ecclesiastics would have been enough to condemn me of blasphemy, since according to them the Easter-tide dinner was held in particular after sunset, which during the month of April is not too late, anyhow. Probably they would not have figured that out even after staring at the painting for months.

However, there was another thing that I believe was even a greater proof that Leonardo was keen to mysticism, which in the 15th century, even in its most harmless form, could have literary cost a man’s head, under the accusation of being a heretic. Namely, Leonardo wanted to establish its own Academy, following Plato’s example he even drew a symbol of this Academy, which was a meticulously formed Sun with 32 rays. The number 32 in particular suggest to a secret society, one that did not dare to express their beliefs openly since the public might have condemned them causing many members to endanger their own lives. Those societies have often had 32 degrees of initiation, and allegedly the same symbol that Leonardo used was the one that marked the Rex Deus families, keepers of the “actual” truth about Jesus. The same number also leads us to the mystical Jewish technique called Kabbalah, where by connecting 10 Sefirots with twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet you get the 32 Paths of Wisdom. Unquestionably, Leonardo did not use the number 32 by mere accident!
What thrilled me in particular with Leonardo was the fact that other than the number 32, he not only knew the significance of the number 12 but used it in practice a multitude of times. More about the usage of the number 12 in practice, as I have interpreted it, I wrote extensively in the book “The Secret of the Number Twelve” (available through Amazon.com). In the same book I’ve also mentioned the painting “Mona Lisa” in the context of the number 12. But, what I’ve learned new is that Leonardo studied all of his paintings in twelve’s. He even claimed that the human face is made out of 20 736 details, that should all be drawn when portraying in order for the face to look perfect. Leonardo’s contemporaries thought of him as mad, (maybe as they think of me today), nevertheless all the wisdom of this kind of thinking is that the number 20 736 derives from 12x12x12. And yet again we receive the three numbers twelve, which I’ve pointed out to be located above Jesus head on the painting “The Last Supper”. The sum 36 can also be received by a simple squaring of the painting, which is 9x4 meters. (I remind you that the Louvre pyramid was built from squares of 36 fields). Besides the above, in many celebrations that Leonardo carried out he used the motive of 12 people, and not that rarely it had to do with 12 black and 12 white people, which is another recognizable symbolism linked to this number. Not only did he use the number twelve in such simple ways, but Leonardo also withdrew his own money from the bank in the amount of 1/12 of his entire savings! Therefore, I’m almost certain that a day did not pass by without Leonardo remembering the number 12, which indeed devoured ALL his activities – from artistic to the most common daily routines. It seems to me that I myself did not master the usage of the number 12 in such a way, still I’m happy that I was able, at least in something, to come on the same path as the great Leonardo.

About Japan, Ancient Egypt and the number 12

In the book “The Secret of the Number Twelve” I wrote that, as a symbol, the number 12 stands out in all world religions. You ought to buy the book to find out more about it, while at the present I’ll reveal some new examples in an all-together new context. Namely, the more I pursue this subject, more evidences seem to confirm my thesis that all religions spring out from the Ancient Egyptian religion. Even now, current news is the issuing of Judah’s Gospel found in Egypt. As I have already mentioned in the book and earlier articles posted on this website (see New conclusions in the link News), I believe that the authentic “cross” of the pyramids at Giza, the symbol of the cross and Jesus’ crucifixion is the number 12 (birds-eye-view the cross divides the three pyramids into 12 pyramids and the cross has its 12 edges). Evidently, those pyramids treasure many other answers and hence we are able to easily notice the symbol of Trinity. It seems that at that place man has INDEED risen from the dead although just in one of the three pyramids which could be confirmed by the fact that officially there are four Gospels from 12 Apostles. Applying the logic of fractions 4/12=1/3 we reach the above hypothesis. Therefore, when we think about the number 12, we do not look at its wide circulation throughout the world only in a quantitative expression, evident when measuring time and found in holy stories; we also recognize it in the symbol of the cross that can be traced all around us.

It is interesting that this “unnoticeable” number 12 has been following us from one minute to the next, starting from our wrist where we carry a watch with the number 12, to clocks all over our walls, even in cell phones, in cars, not to mention the calendar and so forth. Other than the obvious, hundreds or better thousands crosses watch over us everyday wherever we decide to go. Passing streets we encounter a number of uncounted crosses on sacral objects, jewelry, works of art, books, just turn around and you’ll be sure to spot at least one. Not to mention the fact that our body has 12 openings, 12 pairs of ribs, 12 cranial nerves, all subjects I’ve written thoroughly about. The core religious beliefs have been spread from Egypt to the whole world, from the Nordic countries to the south of Africa and South America. I find particularly interesting the spread of that knowledge to the East. Namely, while the old traditions were for the most part destroyed on the territory of the Americas mainly due to the barbaric behavior of European conquerors, in the East the same knowledge was greatly preserved and is often practiced even at present times. Therefore, it’s no surprise that it’s become highly attracting to people all over the world and that, for instance, Indian or Tibetan holy men are very popular in the West. However, that knowledge is vague, turned upside down and incomplete in many aspects as well as build on with unnecessary fabrications and modern influences. From all the different countries it seems to me that only in traditional Japan, whose ancient ways are dying out, one is still able to see how the only ideal society that has ever existed on the planet Earth used to function. That society was the Ancient Egyptian one. It was perfect, since it’s probably the only society that experienced the manifestation of God in person in the image of Man of God. Hence, Ancient Egyptians were thought to apply the religious studies in their everyday activities and doing intellectual work meant primarily pursuing principles set by God. Likely, in Japan one is still able to see the worship of the emperor as the Son of God, Sun devotion, the perfect discipline and diligence, the exceptional sense of honor and an “abnormal” obsession with time measurement. I also feel that the Japanese’s desire to learn, their technical abilities, their unique reference to their bodies (martial arts, breathing techniques…), even their writing, once we apply the analogy method, all reveal Ancient Egyptian societal structures. The great power of Japan at present certainly derives from the rules and responsibilities learned a long time ago, respected by every individual while working on the development of their own society. Somehow I believe that the Egyptians were also numerous like the Japanese on a very narrow strip of land although the official historiography will not likely confirm the above said.

The story says that the Heavenly couple in their first 12-gods generation created 14 Japanese islands and 40 nature gods. Somehow, even these numbers 2, 14 and 40 remind me of Ancient Egypt where the Heavenly couple Isis and Osiris are looking for 14 parts of Osirises body scattered all over Egypt. The names itself, Izanagi and Izanami, with its prefixes, remind us of the names Isis and Osiris. The number 40 leads to the partition of Egypt into 42 noms whose rulers had status of representatives of God and sat next to Osiris during the sepulchral judging of the dead. However, somehow during the transmission of this bit of knowledge came to an information loss (42-40), although we are aware that without a thorough scientific research we won’t be able to find out the whole truth behind this hypothesis. Maybe the Japanese scientists could inquire upon my assertions? Maybe there is something indicative in the fact that the Japanese government is the main financier of the new luxurious Egyptian museum in Cairo? I hope that now, with the final reports of this article, the importance of the number 12 as a Holy number has become even more evident, as well as its ancient source and significance for Mankind. You’ll probably ask me how come I have so conveniently skipped explaining the number five. Well, because soon I’ll devote a whole new article about it, clearly in the context of the number 12.

The 12 days of Christmas too. Holy crap, the world will end next year. Haha, jk, I love these math plays. Hence the name. I think we use a decimal system though because it does make mathematics much easier in base 10. Maybe that's because I have 10 fingers.
