The only propositions I know of linked to Pythagorus, are the ten axioms and
propositions of mathematics that he taught, based on Euclid's geometry: These
A1. "Things which are equal to the same thing are also equal to one another.
A2. "If equals be added to equals, the wholes are equal."
A3. "If equals be subtracted from equals, the remainders are equal."
A4. "Things which coincide with one another are equal to one another."
A5. "The whole is greater than the part."
P1. (It is possible) "to draw a straight line from any point to any other
P2. (It is possible) "to produce a finite straight line continuously in a
P3. (It is possible) "to describe a circle with any centre and distance."
P4. (It is true) "that all right angles are equal to one another."
P5. (It is true) "that, if a straight line falling on two straight lines make
the interior angles on the same side less than two right angles, the two
straight lines, if produced indefinitely, meet on that side on which are the
angles less than the two right angles."
For more on Pythagorean mathematics, see:
"It is well known that the Pythagoreans were much occupied with the
construction of regular polygons and solids, which in their cosmology played an
essential part as the fundamental forms of the elements of the universe."
As for the relationship between Pi and Phi... They are part of the Golden
numbers, polygons, etc., known to all the ancient theosophists and occultists
leading from Pythagorus, Plato, Hermes, Porphyry, Plotinus, etc. For background
on this see:
Also, look up "golden ratio" in www.google.com, and also try "sacred
"e ≈ 2.7182818284.... is a transcendental number commonly encountered when
working with exponential models (growth, decay, and logistic models, and
continuously compounded interest, for example) and exponential functions. eis also
the base of the natural logarithm."
"i" is The symbol used to represent the imaginary number (The square root of
As far as I know, their is no single relationship that brings all these
numbers or symbols together, other than perhaps the relationships of the golden
numbers to the sacred geometry's or to the Fibonacci series.
However, all of these real numbers are related to the ABC theory -- which is
based on the funda-mental geometry and mathematics that describes the
universal forms and their interrelationships as they fractally *involve* spherically
(like bubbles within bubbles, etc.), and ultimately *evolve* as holographically
encoded vibratory patterns on their surfaces -- after emanating from the
"spinergy" (abstract motion or angular momentum) of the Absolute zero-or
laya-point ("singularity") of primal space. This is also fully consistent with the
metaphysics of Cosmogenesis descibed by HPB in the Secret Doctrine based onthe
formulas given in the Book of Dzyan.
Hope this helps,
