# The Magic of Three & Seven

## Recommended Posts

Hello ladies and gentilemen :)I am about to tell a story, that you must believe, or just won't. It is up toy you what you decide, believe it or not.I am strongly convinced that the world was build by the magic of Three and Seven. They can be found almost everywhere you look, but mostly of the time hidden as they cannot be seen directly. I'll give some examples.-See the month I got meself registered. The miniprofile to the left says "October". That month has the number 10, which is the sum of three and seven. I didn't registered on purpose in october, it just happened that way.-See the smileys table to the left when you post (with options), the table contains smileys in three columns.-See the current version of IPS software, 2.1.7, which, summed, give three and seven.-Take the base number of our number system. They start at 0, and end at 9. Say the sequence is this: 0, 1, 2, ... 9. And when this first sequence ends, the second gets the second digit in the first sequence, or adds it by one. So the next sequece would be: 10, 11, 12, ... 19, and the third would be: 20,21,22,...29 etc. This means our number system works with sequences of ten. Take half of the maximum (namely ten) of our system, and remember it as "half_of_maximum". Take the number that both powered by itself and added to itself result in the same number, and remember that number by "base_number". Do square the "base_number", and save it as "sqr_base". If you compare "half_of_maximum" with "sqr_base", add the result to "base_number" and store it in "1st_memory". Then add "sqr_base" to "1st_memory", and save it as "2nd_memory". What will "1st_memory" and "2nd_memory" be? Yes, three and seven.Nice huh You can think of everything you like, three and seven are very common, but also commonly hidden in our society.More examples:-Look at the machine you are now interacting with, the computer. Most computers exist out of approximately seven pieces of hardware. The tower, monitor, two soundboxes, mouse, keyboard, and printer.-Most houses have seven rooms, see the bathroom, kitchen, two bedrooms, toilet, houseroom and staircase or hall.Can you think of more situations in where three or seven are important numbers?

wow I just happen to have 7 pencils sitting on my desk with 3 erasers....NOT!my house has 14 rooms including the basement....if you say it I will smack you. :)Other numbers are just as common! This is silly

But I don't force you with this information, do with it what you want But leave it to everyone for themselves to see if they don't believe it too :)If I look very deep in everything I dayly do and have, I got confronted with seven and three very often :)My phone number has a seven, my PIN code has numbers that, summed, combine three and seven, my bankaccount number contains the difference of three and seven twice, my IP address contains a three, my cell phone contains a seven and the difference between three and seven twice, and I can go on like that for days.

This is part of human nature. If you look deeply enough into any system, you will think you see patterns. Humans are rational beings, and we look for patterns where there are none to try to make sense of a complex, random system. You can do the same thing with 9 and 11, remember? Humans don't like randomness or chaos, they try to see order in everything. It's the same reason a symmetric form looks more appealing than a non-symmetric one. Studies have shown that humans view a perfectly symmetric human face as more beautiful than one where the nose might be slightly crooked, or the eyes or ears slightly offset from one another. Most people society thinks of as beautiful have very symmetric faces.Also, I wouldn't consider the 'tower' one piece of hardware. The computer I'm on right now contains a motherboard, processor, three RAM modules, a NIC card, a CD-ROM and a hard drive, and is not directly connected to a printer. My personal machine at home contains a motherboard, processor, 2 RAM modules, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, and 3 hard drives.Have you seen the movie Pi (great soundtrack, btw)?
11:15, restate my assumptions: 1. Mathematics is the language of nature. 2. Everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers. 3. If you graph these numbers, patterns emerge. Therefore: There are patterns everywhere in nature.
It's a great movie. I won't ruin it for you, but the main character sort of loses his mind near the end from thinking about all of this. It's human nature, man. If I believe that the entire world is made out of cones, I'll see them everywhere.

Sounds a bit like 'A Beautiful Mind' were Russell Crowe loses his mind looking for spy codes in magazine ads.

I could say the number 1 is in everything. Can you believe that the number of all living things on the planet can be divided by one? O_O

That's also a good movie. Pi is about mathematics, numerology, computers, the stock market, shady orthodox Jews, and sweet music from people like Aphex Twin and Clint Mansell.If you haven't seen it, check it out!http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0138704/

my favorite number 5 - thanks for asking.

Well 6 is the first Perfect number!

why is 6 the first perfect number??? Historically speaking 3 and 7 are considered special in some religions.God created the universe in 7 days. The Holy Trinity (3), etc.

Pity not everyone believes in it But you don't have to, the Magic Three and Seven are only magic to the ones that believe in it, just as you said they were

Think of any two numbers. Make a third by adding the first and second, a fourth by adding the second and third, and so on. When you have written down about 20 numbers, calculate the ratio of the last to the second from last. The answer should be close to 1.6180339887...
OK, that is a little creepy. Here's my sequence (thanks for the start Dan):371017274471115186301487788127520633338540187391414022879370195989896917156815253732253732/156815 = 1.6180339890whoa

You do can go into this number thing I have read somewhere that the whole world was build by only a few number sequences, but as you say, humans luike to go there.

Well, there are several reasons why that ratio is a unique number. Read that Guardian article and check it out. Calculated to 10 million digits, the number never repeats. It is the slowest converging fraction known. That is why plants use it to determine the spacing of their leaves, so that higher up leaves do not block the sun from lower leaves. It's even found in black holes, which have nothing to do with worldly affairs on this planet (not exactly true, but you know what I mean). The number is even appealing to humans, according to the article if a person is shown several rectangles, they will invariably choose the one that matches the ratio. The person who first documented it, Euclid, is also the name for the superprocessor that is the object of the lead character's desire in the movie Pi.

When I was in the 4th grade the teacher was giving out a picture on are feild trip and everyone wanted it and you were supposed to guess 1 to 10 and i guessed 7 and i got the picture.Don't ask how I remeber this.......

##### Share on other sites

Yeah, everyone thinks 7 is their lucky number, so any time anyone asks to pick a number between 1 and 10, that's probably your best choice.

##### Share on other sites

And then there is someone that is smarter, and chooses an other number :)But then there will be another one who thinks he is even smarter and doesn't choose the number seven.And even another smarter person sticks again to seven.Best choice to just first try seven

So if I buy a lotto ticket on the way home and pick all 7's I am garenteed to win??? *sheesh*

Yeah one time I had to guess 1 to 20 and instead of guessing 7, I guessed 17 crazy huh and I won!

No, you have to pick 3s also. See if they will let you choose one of your numbers as 1.61803. Not that that will ever get drawn..

I don't swear these two numbers always will be the answer, but it could be, if not, then just not.I do say, if everyone does believe in them, then the guessers of the number could start a looping by think they are smarter than the other, and he on his turn also thinks that :)But nevermind, not everyone believess Three and Seven are the magical numbers, and actually, I was just playing it.

The last post was post number 21. Thats divisable by 3 AND 7!

lmao well. Theres a time and a place for everything now is there.......

But still I think those numbers may occur quite often though all may do

Guess what, I just lost my train of though . Give me a minute to think of what I was going to say lol.
