I love the beauty in these numbers, they are all just random numbers, but put together in a certain order thay are so amazingly perfect in what they accomplish...read on


I Don't Understand

I hated mathematics at school - in fact I ducked out of school and went surfing at Glen Beach during the maths lessons. Suffice to say that I don't understand maths. But that does not prevent me from appreciating the symmetry in numbers:

1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321

1 x 9 + 2 = 11
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111
12345 x 9 + 6 = 111111
123456 x 9 + 7 = 1111111
1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111
12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111
123456789 x 9 +10= 1111111111

9 x 9 + 7 = 88
98 x 9 + 6 = 888
987 x 9 + 5 = 8888
9876 x 9 + 4 = 88888
98765 x 9 + 3 = 888888
987654 x 9 + 2 = 8888888
9876543 x 9 + 1 = 88888888
98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888


Brilliant!

And finally, take a look at this symmetry:

1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111 =12345678987654321

I also don't understand the Creator of life. But that does not prevent me from appreciating the gift of life. And this appreciation keeps me searching for clues about the Originator.

I am glad I am not the only one who finds the power and beauty of our Creator in mathematics.

Peace,

Number - beautiful. Anybody read The Anthropomorphic Principle? Can't rememebr the authors, failed to understand much of it (too much serious maths) but it is about somthing like how certain universal constants have made life on earth almost "inevitable". Tiny changes in any of these constants would have meant no us. It makes the whole "random spark creating life" idea look even less likely.

Oh by the way Dave, these carefully chosen numbers in the amazing sequences are anything but random.

Dont you think it has something to teach us...that when we be who we are created to be and do not fight each other, but work together, we could live lives so full.

I do not see a block of numbers, I see a church, a gathered people, moving effortlessly as one, each complementing the other, perfect symmetery and unity.

Maybe I'm just weird!!
