beast and its beauty

 In my previous posts I have given some theories about the origin of the number(666) and why it was assigned to the beast or anti Christ. There are other interesting theories regarding the antichrist.
One more theory regarding the number of the beast.

In ancient Babylon the people believed the pagan gods and they followed them, these gods were given a number and there were 36 deities and the supreme being the sun(37th ) god. So these gods were given numbers from 1,2,3,4,….36 and the sun was represented by the sum. These gods were assigned some amulets with there number embossed on them, these amulets were equivalent to Indian yantras.

This amulets supposedly provide protections to the owner. These amulets are prepared in a manner that these numbers form a special pattern…

These drawings from photographs taken in 1910, show actual amulets then in the Berlin Museum. They reveal the veneration the ancients had for the sun-god. On the front side of No.1 we see the god of the sun standing on the lion. This indicated the sun's position in the constellation of Leo during the hot days of August. On the back is inscribed "Nachyel," meaning "intelligence of the sun," and in 36 squares are arranged the numerals 1 to 36 (see table 1) in such a way that adding the numbers of any column either horizontally or vertically, and also the two diagonals crossing the square, the total is the same- 111. The sum of the six columns, computed either horizontally or vertically, is 6 x 111, or 666.

The second illustration is also a solar seal, but it honors the star Basilisco, which was the diminutive form of the Greek basileus (king), thus meaning the same as the Latin regulus. Now, Regulus is the only first-magnitude star in the constellation of Leo. The sun and the moon are again clearly seen on this amulet, and on the reverse side is the same arrangement of numerals, with the actual figure given of the total 666.

666 and its beauty

The origin of this number is not entirely clear, although it may be as simple as the number containing the concatenation of one symbol of each type (excluding M=1000 ) in Roman numerals:

DCLXVI=666……(is this the origin..??)

666 is an abundant number, that is the sum of first 36 numbers is 666

It is also the sum of squares of the first seven prime numbers.

This beast number is the sum of all the numbers on the roulette wheel.

Also (1*1*1*1*1*1)-(2*2*2*2*2*2)+(3*3*3*3*3*3)=666

Another curious identity is that there are exactly two ways to insert "+" signs into the sequence 123456789 to make the sum 666, and exactly one way for the sequence 987654321,


The sum of first 144 digits of pi is 666.


Where phi is totient function.

Will come up with some new interesting posts soon..
Take care
Blessed be…
