## 666 And Mathematics

For mathematical and arithmetical purposes they used the Sumerian sexagesimal system of numbers, which featured a useful device of so-called 'place-value notation' that resembles the present-day decimal system. Measures of length, area, capacity, and weight, standardized earlier by the Sumerians, remained in use.

Like 888, 666 is an important musical number, for .666 is the ratio of the perfect fifth, the most powerful, and most base, harmonic interval.

A Cubit is apparently 18 inches long, which is a trinity of three 6 inch lengths.

6 inches is, of course, the average size of the erect male (human) penis.

Revelation 14:1, mentions the number 144,000.

When 144,000 is divided by the Number of the Beast, the resulting number is 216.216.216....

216 also happens to be the cube of six -- 6 * 6 * 6!

666 = 63 + 63 + 63 + 6 + 6 + 6.

The Number of the Beast is one of only six integers which are equal to the sum of their digits and the cubes of their digits.

The other five are 12, 30, 870, 960, and 1998. Interestingly, 1998 is equal to 666 + 666 + 666.

16 - 26 + 36 = 666

1 + 2 +3 = 6

1 * 2 * 3 = 6,

the square root of the sum of the cubes of one, two, and three is also equal to six!

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 567 + 89 =666

123 + 456 + 78 + 9 =666

=9 + 87 + 6 + 543 + 21 =666

The "magic" in this square, credited to Rudolf Ondrejka, is that the sum of numbers in every row, column, and along the two main diagonals is 666:

232 313 121

111 222 333

323 131 212

(the only numbers used in the square are combinations of one, two, and three. )

In this four-by-four example, also attributed to Ondrejka, the rows, columns, and two main diagonals all add up to 666.

In addition, so do all the broken diagonals (169 + 26 + 164 + 307), each of the nine two-by-two subsquares (151 + 208 + 13 + 294), and the four corners of the three-by-three subsquares (320 + 138 + 13 + 195), of the four-by-two rectangles (195 + 164 + 182 +125), and of the four-by-four square itself (320 + 39 + 182 + 125)!
