# Eye of Horus is actually an early math system?

In the Ancient Egyptian measurement system, the Eye Of Horus defined Old Kingdom number one (1) = 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 + 1/16 + 1/32 + 1/64, by throwing away 1/64 for any rational number. Eye of Horus numbers created six-term rounded-off numbers. The Old Kingdom definition has dropped a seventh term, a remainder 1/64, that was needed to report exact series. During the Middle Kingdom that included the eleventh through fourteenth dynasties, exact series definitions and applications were often written by 6-terms, or less. The Egyptian fraction notation scaled to volume unit remainders to 1/320 hekat. For example, the Egyptian Mathematical Leather Roll, the RMP 2/n table and the Akhmim Wooden Tablet wrote binary quotients and scaled remainders. The metaphorical side of this information linked Old Kingdom fractions 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, and 1/64, to separate parts of the eye.

The "Eye of Horus" fractions were further discussed in the Egyptian Mathematical Leather Roll following elementary definitions that built the Egyptian fraction system. Weights and measure subunits of a hekat were also connected to Eye of Horus numbers in the quotient, and as an exact remainder, the remainder including an Egyptian fraction and a ro unit, correcting the Eye of Horus 1/64 roundoff error. The ro unit, 1/320 of a hekat, is cited in the Rhind Mathematical Papyrus and applied in the medical texts, i.e. Ebers Papyrus in two ways. The first replaced the hekat by a unity, 64/64 (in RMP 47, 82 and 83), and the second by 320 ro (in RMP 35–38). Exact divisions of 64/64 by 3, 7, 10, 11 and 13, written as 1/3, 1/17, 1/10, 1/11 and 1/13 multipliers, are also found in the Akhmim Wooden Tablet.

Thanks for the clarification. Makes more sense now

hmmm, when you look at it as the fractional sum approaching 1 as the denominators approach infinity, it becomes extremely akin to Zeno's Paradox!! That's kinda cool!

Pretend as if you "know" all of this stuff, and now pretending you are not human?
Well, Thanks for that, as I now know not to read any further into your posts.
lol

er, whatever you pretend to be.

I dunno what he is, but I'm a purple chiten!

Forgive my ignorance, but I dont get it.

Just an imaginary alter-ego for the sake of enjoyment and playfulness

I just have to remember, it's "child-like" not "childish"

It's also a LOT of fun on facebook!!!

The Great Pyramid of Egypt/ first wireless computer connected to other pyramids around the world is what blocks the frequencies of immortality.

That is why no glyphs or writing was found on the great pyramid and that is why it was completly finished, it was a time in which humans had no word of mouth or back breaking work, not just Egypt, allll around the world.

lol,but when humans learned to write and draw,they told a story of the back breaking work on all the other pyramids as so back breaking the rest never got completed or looked as good as the first.

You have to remember, out of 4.8 billion years of earth…language just…one day fell out the sky’

Every animal on earth is born with language and communication from birth’ humans had to learn it’ some where in time…in time.

Honestly your reasons for your theory could be more easily explained by the ancient alien theory. Language may have just fallen out of the sky, or more flew.

Ah I see. So its kinda like what furries do. Only some of them get a little carried away.

Never thought of it that way, but kinda... in the "cyber-sense" I suppose. ...
But the chiten is extremely popular on facebook and it's great stress relief! Always positive and supportive though and just downright cute

I just looked that up. I see exactly what you mean. It does seem to be what is at hand here, especially Achilles and the tortoise and the dichotomy paradox.

Yeah right. I suppose the mathematicians had to make it appear that way. There is reference to it being something to do with math over a thousand + years later than the eye of Horus was created. People see what they want to see and also what they know. It doesn't mean what they see is right though. Math could have used parts of the popular eye to get people interested in math later, showing that things can be taken apart into smaller pieces. Hollywood and the governments around the world often used ancient symbols and words to attract people to their creations too. Why should mathematicians be restricted.

It seems the same concepts are recycled with each "age" and taken in different directions by each. Interesting.

so now Math is a conspiracy theory too?

Math is one of the oldest forms of communication and there is debate as to which came first, math or language. It's something that's open to everyone, everywhere and is above and beyond the conspiracies. It's the oldest of the sciences and the most absolute. Granted, people can manipulate statistics for the general public that doesn't understand the concepts, but there are always people from every walk of life that do understand the concepts, so it's not something that can be manipulated on a mass scale without anyone being able to prove it's truth or falsehood.

I agree with NewerBeing. We are the master species, and I'm not going to feel sorry for it. If we keep advancing technologically, violent behavior will drop.

So which technological advance will stop violent behavior?

There's no no specific piece of technology or a date as to when we will be advanced enough. Most violence happens because of need and opportunity. Technology is the solution to our needs. The more we advance technologically, there will be less and less need for violence.

I'm saying that this is something that's not going to happen for a very long time.

I disagree. I believe a good chunk of violence occurs because of greed. Want not need.

It is the people who simply want more for themselves and less for everybody else that are the cause for a good amount of violence. The violence caused by need has slowly gone down over time, while the violence caused by greed has gone up.

So in the future it will be greed that will need to be abolished in order to prevent violence. I am sure there will be new technologies that will help us fight this as well, So I dont disagree that technology can be good, but I disagree that most violence is caused by need.
