### God’s Most Fascinating Number

OK, Number Theorists what is God’s most fascinating number???? I’ll grant you that 1729 is interesting and there’re all kinds of constants that are breathtaking but what number takes the cake??? The number has just got to be 137. It has 3 prime digits 1, 3, 7. Also if you add 1 + 3 + 7 you get 11 which is another Prime Number. If you take any two digits from 137 and combine them you have the Primes 13, 17, 31, 37, 71, 73. 317 is another Prime from a three digit combination. Any number that is found to be a Prime Number may have a unit’s digit of 1, or 3, or 7 and occasionally 9 for some unaccountable reason as nine is 3 X 3. 137 plus a smidgen is the Fine Structure Constant 137.0360098. Classical physics tells us that electrons captured by element 137 which is undiscovered will move at the speed of light. 137 is the odds that an electron will absorb a single photon. Protons and electrons are bound by interactions with photons. So when you get 137 protons, you get a 100% chance of absorption. An electron in the ground state will orbit at the speed of light. This is the electromagnetic equivalent of a black hole. General Relativity prevents planets which are essentially a collection of electrons and protons from orbiting at the speed of light and beyond to create a Black Hole. General Relativity prevents element 137 from having electrons moving faster than the speed of light. If we divide 137 / 9 = 15.22222. 137 + 2 = 139 which is a Prime Number and if you add 1 + 3 + 9 you get 13 which is another Prime Number. In spite of General Relativity, element 139 would have electrons moving faster than light. Perhaps 137, is the physic’s threshold number equivalent to the speed of sound and in this case to traveling faster than light as the Theory of Everything has yet to be discovered!!!!
