Get Your Head Around This. Is 9 the Number of Symmetry in Nature?

What do you think?

What's the inspiration for the constructed system that uses an arbitrary assignment of 360 degrees to make up a complete rotation - a base 60 numbers system? The 9 + 5 = 14 and lo and behold 1 + 4 = 5 wouldn't show up in a system that used a distinctive symbol to represent that sum of what we call 14. And what to the significance of "9" when we separate the angles that make up the circle into so many mils or pi radians?

This one is for the guys who work over there with the wheels and arithmetic.

Nothing is arbitrary.

Words are mathematical as well--for the purpose of accounting.

Very interesting post, Dis.

Oh, and "666 is the 'number of The Beast' and the 'number of Man'.

Yes, lovinglib. "Nothing is arbitrary." Now tell us, "There are no absolutes." Give over.

Absolute power, corrupts absolutely?

And, "give over" not a term I am familiar means?

DL, I should have said that there are purposeful patterns all around us. Even broccoli and cauliflower have patterns. I saw it on Nature Of Things, or on public television.
