No. 9 (bit of numerology/maths)
Oct 10, 2000 05:47 PM
No. 9 has great significance in many beliefs. I did not know
about the B'hai temple having nine corners. I learn all the time
from your postings.
I have discussed about 9 with some mystics, I put my
interpretation, they did not quite accept but did not reject
either. I was only a teenager, so they perhaps did not want to
9 is a symbol of "all in it" in very many ways. Such as, if you
add all numbers from 1 to 9 together they come to 45, if you wish
to add the 0 with it, still remains 45. With 45, add the two
digits up, 4+5= 9 again.
9 the symbol of all known, and the 1 unknown (the non-material
no. cannot define), add them together and you have 10. Add 1 and
0, you get 1. As in, all a part of the big "ONE", only if you
consider the non-existent (0) and the undefined existent (1) with
all the known (9).
If you are interested in mathematical marvel, here is something I
did out of curiousity.
Time table of all no. when you start adding the digits and notice
the results, there is a certain progression.
one of the simple ones is time-table of 3
3, 6, 9, 12,15,18,21,24 if you add them up they are
3,6,9,3,6,9,3,6,9 and so on
Bit more complex is 7 (another would be 5)
7, 14, 21, 28, 35, 42, 49, 56, 63, 70 when added they are 7, 5,
3, 1, 8, 6, 4, 2, 9, 7 and so on
9,18,27,36,45, 54, 63, 72.........they all add upto 9. And
I better stop again. :))
