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!!!

wow, a lot of talk about god...
raised as an athiest, I have no concept of a higher power. but when you think about it, whoever created 3 was the higher power. an ordinary person, perhaps some Neanderthal who wanted to have a name for the quanity of bison he stabbed for dinner once had more bison than some other Neanderthal, but no one knew. he came up with a system. he had three bison. the other guy had two. essentially, numbers came out of greed. or pride? I'm not sure. 3 became a triangle. he (or He, as it may be) created aesthetics, art. 3 is a triangle. math is only another abstract way of interpreting life. in all of the convolutions of our different forms of existence...in the different ways that we interpret the way that we belong, our niche, math is simply one small detail. yet we have created a way for mathematics to belong to a bigger part of the universe than it was ever meant to be a part of. we use it to define our lives. it goes back to the cavemen principle. we need some definition. 3 is the basis for everything...we are three-dimensional. our lives have 3 stages. we have 3 psychological states. 3 parts to our ego. you've proved that there is a god. god is not a person; god is the oddness, the coincidence, the deja-vu.

What do we do with the Pixie's song "if the devil is six then god is seven?"
