I hope you didn't mind, but I posted what you explained to Gopi to a
friend of mine on another forum for him to be able to explain it to
me, as you know how backward I am when it comes to geometry etc. He
has posed a question to you, feel free to answer it or not, at your
own discretion. IlluminAlch@ yahoogroups.com
Ask Lenny ... How Could It Be Euclid's Geometry ?.. if Pythagoras
preceeded him by hundred's of years and taught these principles.
It would then have to have been Pythagoras principles.. which
Euclid appropriated into his geometry, would it not?
The reverse is the case with the Pythagorean theorem. It wasn't
Pythagoras who invented it, but it was his school which got it out
to the public ... gave it air time....got it to fly. So he gets
credit for it as a result.
The Pythagoreans were the intellectual force behind the likes of
Euclid and others.
They didn't just give us the 'gon' and 'hedron' show . They told
us all was Number and Vibration...the Music of the Spheres...which
is something we are continually learning about.
As far as the connection of......... e, to i, to Pi, to 1 [unity]
and to 0 [integer and void].
Leonhard Euler gives us what some consider apodictic prove for
in the universe in the formula:
.................... e ^ i x Pi + 1 =
English: e taken to the power of i [ square root of - l] times Pi
plus 1 = Zero
How's that for combining the transcendentals with Unity and the Void?
This is one of the greatest identity theories in all of math,
absolute genius and
absolute beauty. So you see there are myriad connections between
all of the
transcendentals, but wait where is 'Phi' ?.
This is where the notorious Frater Angelicus comes in.
The 'determinant' of any Fibonacci series [re Golden Ratio 'phi']
beyond a 2 x 2 matrix [you have to give the series a chance to
develop itself to create a preceeding 2 number ratio] into infinity
equals Zero [ = 0].
So the connection of 'Phi' to one of Euler's materpieces comes
through the Void,
through Zero ..a Matrix which is non-encryptable.
So here's Angelicus's adaptation upon Euler's masterpiece [so as to
include 'Phi' because we don't want to leave 'anyone' out at the
e ^ i (Pi) + 1 = det [n x n] (n> 2 Phi Element Matrix) = 0
[I'm sure some of the professional mathematicians can clean this up
You heard it first from Yours Truly the Good Frater,
another 'IlluminAlch' first !
Frater 'M' ['M' as in Matrix and Magick]
PS. Share it with Lenny !
As far as the transcendentals go:

numbers or symbols together, other than perhaps the relationships of
numbers to the sacred geometry's or to the Fibonacci series.
However, all of these real numbers are related to the ABC theory --
based on the funda-mental geometry and mathematics that describes
universal forms and their interrelationships as they fractally
(like bubbles within bubbles, etc.), and ultimately *evolve* as
encoded vibratory patterns on their surfaces -- after emanating from
"spinergy" (abstract motion or angular momentum) of the Absolute
laya-point ("singularity") of primal space. This is also fully
consistent with the
metaphysics of Cosmogenesis descibed by HPB in the Secret Doctrine
based on the
formulas given in the Book of Dzyan.
Hope this helps,

Well known is the Pythagorean theorem in its most basic form of:
3 squared + 4 squared = 5 squared. [ 9 + 16 = 25.]
But Plato knew that these same numbers when 'Cubed' also formed a
special relationship which is not generally known.
3 cubed + 4 cubed + 5 cubed = 6 cubed [27 + 64 + 125 = 216]
216 is not the same as 666, but still uses three Sixes to derive its
[ 6 x 6 x 6 = 216].
For those of you curious enough to see if there were a series here, I
took it up another dimesnsion.
3 [to power of 4] + 4 [to the power of 4] + 5 [to the power of 4] +
6 [to the power of 4] = 7 [to the power of 4]
So this should be the expected outcome: 81 + 256 + 625 + 1296 =
However these are the results: 81 + 256 + 625 +
1296 = 2258
So the sequence fails at the 4th power.
