# Number Rules the Universe

--The Pythagoreans
# Pythagorus died acording to one legend in the flames of his own school fired by political and religious bigots who stirred up the masses to protest against the enlightenment which Pythagoras sought to bring them. Sic transit gloria mundi.

- 1 is reason, for reason is unchangeable; the very essence of unchangeableness is expressed by this number
- 2 is unlimited and indeterminate -- opinion as contrasted with reason
- 4 is the essence of justice, for four is the product of equals
- 5 is marriage, the first masculine with the first feminine
- 6 is a number perfect in itself and not because God created all things in 6 days; rather the inverse is true, that God created all things in six days because this number is perfect and it would remain perfect, even if the work of the 6 days did not exist

- 3 x 6
- Knight of St. John's Eve was 1308 ... 1344
- sum of digits of 36 is 9
- 6 things intact with seals
- 6 knights appearing 6 times in 6 places
- 6 x 20 = 120 years
- 6 places or 6 tasks to be followed
- 6 documents scattered in 6 places
- 5 x 120 = 600
- 1344 + 600 = 1944
- digits of 1944 add up to 18 which is 3 x 6
- 1944 is terminal date of plan, but with a view to another target, the year 2000
- 6 keepers per seal, each serving 120 years
- Templers were persecuted as heretics; they came to identify with the anti-Christ
- Templers believed that the second milennium would see the advent of their Jerusalem
- 666 is number of the beast
- the year 666 is the year of the beast
- the year 2000 is when the Templer's revenge will triumph
- 36 knights for each of the 6 places makes 216 whose digits add up to 9
- 6 centuries, so 6 x 216 = 1296 whose digits add up to 18 or 3 x 6 or 666
- 9 is the number of the Knights that founded the temple in Jerusalem
- sum of odd numbers from 1 to 7 is 16
- sum of even numbers from 2 to 8 is 20
- 20 + 16 = 36
- Christ is the elixir of the alchemists. Everyone knows that the Trinity is an Aryan concept anyway. That is why the whole rule of the Templers drawn up by the druid St. Bernards is riddled with the number 3.
- The 36 invisibles are now 360. Multiply that by 2 and you get 720. Subtract 120 years at the end of which the doors are open and you get 600
