Our Universe Is Brought To You By The Number 3
I don’t know if you are familiar with Sesame Street, however, at the beginning of the program the Count said that "This Program Is Being Brought to you By the Number (fill in the blank). It suddenly occurred to me that the Universe in which we live is brought to us by the number 3. I realize this statement only applies if you don’t believe in God or alternately whatever your religion / culture / beliefs call the higher force / being / whatever. We have 3 dimensions, length, width and height. Three strikes and you’re out. Things, good or bad, usually happen in 3’s. Most discussions have 3 major points. Traffic lights usually have 3 lights, red for stop, yellow for caution and green for go. You are usually given 3 chances to accomplish something. Most people can only remember 3 things on a list. The triangle, consisting of 3 sides is the strongest form of construction. The people you know in your life can be classified as acquaintances, friends and soulmates. If you organize a speech, tell them what you are going to say, say it and tell them what you said. If you think about your life, there are probable many more examples. Anyway you get the basic idea.
