The Power of TwelveIn a conversation with Pleiadians, we were informed that, according to Archangel Metatron, on a scale 1 to 10 of Universal species intelligence, we haven't even reached a 1 yet. Pleiadians are 9. Pleiadians have the task of watching over our progress and monitoring the elology of our planet Earth. We were told that, as an intelligent species begins to emerge, other intelligent species sit up and take interest when the young species discovers the value of pi (22/7 or 3.142 recurring; the equation used in mathematics to find the area of a circle) We, however, are, apparently, a bit of a laughing stock to the rest of the intelligent species in the universes. Why? Because we are working our numbers in 'base 10'. We were told that the design of the universe, uses 'base 12' and if we were using base 12, then pi would be a finite number. That number is 3.184809493B Another name for Base 12 is DOZENAL or if you will, duodecimal. Now, don't ask me to explain this number; I'm no mathematician. The Pleiadians explained that when we finally get around to using base 12 again, our science and spiritual knowledge would escalate incredibly fast. Note, I said 'again'? Years ago we worked in base 12. Examples? 12 times-tables taught at schools 60 seconds (divisible by 12) 60 minutes 12 hours in a day 12 hours on a clock face 12 hours in a night 12 months in a year 12 signs of the Zodiac The 12 days of Christmas A dozen is 12 12 dozen is a Gross 12 Gross is a Great Gross 12 inches in a foot 12 pence in a shilling 12 Volt batteries Jesus Christ had 12 disciples, who all had 12 disciples each 12 apostles 12 tribes of Israel 12 members of a jury Archangel Michael has 12 legions of angels A legion of angels is 72000 (divisible by 12) The Tree of Life has 12 branches 12 dimensions of spirituality 12 chakras, not just 7 12 strands of DNA emerging 12 notes to each scale of music The end of childhood and beginning of adulthood The end of our numbering system, before 'teens' There are 12 universes to a Dodecahedron universes. 12 Dodecahedron universes circumnavigate The Great Central Sun, where the Creator resides. They tell us that fractions are easier to calculate in base 12 too. So, until some bright spark works this out, we will continue to count our fingers, thumbs and toes, because we think it's easier; and the mind boggles, to consider what you call 3 12's, 4 12's, other than 36 and 48. And whilst we're on the subject of numbers, why is it we have 20, 30,40,50 etc. What happened to onety (10)???

to tell you the truth I do not believe in horoscope, though I have my favorite numbers, one of them is 13 !I find only odd numbers interesting, zero and infinite are special

It is of course wrong as well. Actually we should be using Base 60. The arch-angels know jack all!The real reason why there is 12 and is appears so often is because of the ancient counting systems that were found in Babyon crica 500-400 BCE (i think - this is from memory so bare with me). Much of the western religion and phliosophy is derived from Zoorasta (think of the 2001 and music by Strauss) and as he was from that area, a lot of old wisdom is deeply ingrained in our culture. The Babyonians (and Assarians, and Elamites etc) used a counting systems where they counted the joints on their fingers and hence why it was base 60 (although I believe that some of their counting was base 10 for some items - but I can't recall which ones).

from g+posted by wendy kriegerShared publicly QuoteA weird problem. This is advanced physics, which means that ye might have at least a good grounding in matters like 'electricity' and 'gravity'.If you are into a different base, like base 120, then you make all sorts of efforts to root out tens and log tens and so forth out. In part, you come to weights and measures, and apart from converting 10's to 120's, you decide to fix things on the way.Sooner or later, you decide that SI is pretty much a train-wreck in slow motion, which started way back in the 1860's, and despirately needs a fix. For example, it has seven base units: you can generally thin this back to four, since we can replace the ampere, the mole, and the candela with derived units. Of course useful things come out of activities, if ye do it right. One of these is the Rule of Substance, which has quite an extraordinary result when it is thinned out.Those of ye who wrangle older mathematical texts, and those on cosmology, will no doubt be aware of the c.g.s. system, and its use of 4pi in different places to SI. If ye use Heaviside's electric to gravity analogy, the current cosmology is written in 'gaussian' units. [Gauss had no part of this - i don't know why he sholders the blame].The fix for this is to write out a set of equations in six base units, of which two or three are made numeric, to give, eg gaussian, e.s.u,, e.m.u. and SI like equations, but these are not the only game in town.Ye can follow the leads of Fitzgerald, and of Kennelley (1932), and write, for example \epsilon c = \mu c = 1. It's just a case of taking the sorts of equations you see in your undergrad books, and replacing \epsilon and \mu with 1/c. So, eg E = cD. and H = cD. The real magic is the measure of 4pi. Leo Young (1961) used a value S which S=1 in SI and S=4pi in c.g.s.. He also uses U=1 in SI and U=1/c in c.g.s., to include the gaussian and HLU units. By Young, ye have Flux = S.Charge, and so forth. You get then a system of equations SISU, which is SI with S and U tossed in to pull out c.g.s.The thing is six-dimensional, and the over-all symmetry is that there are eight vectors, which form a cube (orthogonal to the LMT dimension, with the centre of the cube running to pressure or energy density. You can write these as eg P, and D=P.S and so forth. But a bit of reanalysis, one can write the mechanical point as E^2.bhk, where E is the electric field, and b,h,k are three axies of the cube. I use \beta, \eta and \kappa here. \beta corresponds to 1/S, and \kappa to 1/U of Young's theory. \beta corresponds to the appearence of 4pi, eg Q/\Phi. \eta is a symmetry element, as H = \eta.E \kappa is an assymetry element, as in I.\kappa . t = Q (ie biot . \kappa . second = franklin).If you use the coordinate system as described above, a truly interesting thing happens. You have \beta dividing the quantities into substance and spaces. mass and charge are substances, while fields and fluxes are are spaces. Spaces: Length, area, volume, time, velocity, acceleration, fields and fluxes of all kinds, permittivity, permeability, \beta = 0Substances: Mass, energy, force, power, pressure, charges, dipoles and polarisations, susceptabilities, conductances and admittances. Capacitances. \beta = 1Anti-substances: Resistances. Inductions \beta = -1.It's then a matter of going through an equation, and ticking off which are substances. A dimensional analysis of the ticks gives an inbalance which is corrected by a ticked 4pi. (or going the other way, a crossed 4pi. So, eg F = Q^2 / R^2 gives F and Q as substances, so you have one tick on the LHS and two on the RHS, the balance is to divide by a ticked 4pi. F = Q^2 / 4pi.R^2.\mu_r = 1 + 4\pi \chi_mHere gives only one tick, on susceptability \chi_m. You divide through by 4pi, to get the rationalised form \mu = 1+\chi_m.SubstanceSo if \beta is a substance, what is it. Leo Young's theory gives \beta = 1/S = 1 / solid-angle, say. (SI treats the three radiant fields of light, gravity and electricity entirely differently).So there is a substance-like quantity that has the dimensions of 1/sr.Where space has a variable curvature, does this mean that substance is a cause of curvature. Lots of mystery questions here, but ye can readily see that the use of different units puts a whole different prospective on things.

Friedman numbersA Friedman number is a positive integer that can be written (nontrivially) using its own digits, together with parentheses and the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and exponentiation. An example of a Friedman number is 1395, because we can write 1395 = 15 x 93, and the digits on each side of the equation are the same, even if they do not appear in the same order.If a Friedman number has the extra property that the digits in the formula are used in the same order in which they appear in the number, then the Friedman number is called nice. The first six nice Friedman numbers are shown in the picture. For example, both sides of the equation 343 = (3+4)^3 have digits that appear in the same order, and this means that the Friedman number 343 is ?nice?.Friedman numbers are named after Erich Friedman, who introduced them in August 2000. He has written a web page about them at http://www2.stetson.edu/~efriedma/mathmagic/0800.html. From the tables on that page, we see that there are only 72 Friedman numbers among the first 10,000 natural numbers, and that 14 of these 72 numbers are nice. This makes it sound as if Friedman numbers might be somewhat rare, and perhaps that there are only finitely many of them.Surprisingly, this turns out not to be the case: Friedman numbers (meaning all of them, not just the nice ones) exist in abundance. Let us define F(n) to be the number of Friedman numbers that are less than n. A theorem published by Michael Brand in 2013 proves that as n tends to infinity, the ratio F(n)/n tends to 1; in other words, the Friedman numbers have density 1.What this means is that if a very large integer is chosen at random, it is almost certain to be a Friedman number. Brand's proof is short (just over six pages) but it is not trivial. In the same paper, Brand also proves that the analogous result holds in any number base, not just base 10. A subsequent paper by Brand (http://arxiv.org/abs/1310.2390) shows that nice Friedman numbers also have density 1, at least if they are written in base 2, 3 or 4. However, the interesting case of nice Friedman numbers in base 10 remains open.Friedman's web page mentions some other results that show how surprisingly common these numbers are. One of these is that there exist arbitrarily long strings of consecutive numbers all of which are Friedman numbers. For example, the number 250068 = 500^2 + 68 can easily shown to lie in a long consecutive string of Friedman numbers, and the same argument shows that one can find a Friedman number ending in any given string of digits, such as the digits ?68?.The web page also discusses Friedman numbers in various other bases, as well as Friedman numbers in Roman numerals! It's true: XCIV = C ? V ? I^X, because both sides are equal to 94.Relevant linksMichael Brand's paper ?Friedman numbers have density 1? is online at http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/ar ... 8X13002564, but I don't know of an openly downloadable version of this paper.The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences has more information on Friedman numbers at https://oeis.org/A036057
