### God’s Favorite Number

I have a favorite color which is Lime Green. That color is everywhere in my life including my car and the walls of my house. This realization lead me to think that maybe God has a favorite number which is used almost anywhere in various forms. I reread my previous postings to see if I could come up with a clue. I’ve written about how "This Universe Has Been Brought To You By The Number 3". I’ve also written about how all mathematical calculations and numbers come down to number 9 which is really 3 X 3. I’ve written about how all prime numbers end with either 1, 3, 7, or 9. A prime number is a number that can only be divided by 1 and itself. If you take a combination of 1, 3, 7, or 9 you can make the prime numbers , 13, 17, 19, 31, 37, 71, 73, 79, 137, 139 and 937. If you add (1+3+7 = 11) you get 11 and 11 is the number most mentioned as the number of dimensions associated with this universe in some way. There is a number called the Fine Structure Constant. It’s value is about 1/137.03597. You will notice that about .03597 is added to 137 for this calculation. The Fine Structure Constant is important because it represents both the probability that an electron will absorb a photon (particle of light) and also brings three very important domains of physics together: electromagnetism, relativity, and quantum mechanics. When you think about it, God’s most favorite number has just got to be 137!!!
