The Trifigurates

The kind of figurate numbers with which this analysis deals are those capable of filling a 2-D or 3-D symmetrical frame when represented as collections of uniform counters - circles or spheres, squares or cubes, as appropriate. Typical are the triangulars, the squares (and their distorted equivalents, the rhombi), the cubes, the hexagons and hexagrams.

Occasionally, a
given number may be expressed geometrically in * two *distinct
ways - as, for example, 64, which is both a square (i.e. 8.8) and
a cube (i.e. 4.4.4). These are logically termed

Clearly, this pair
of numbers is rather special for these features are * absolutes
*- completely independent of any system of
numeration devised by man. Yet we observe that when expressed as
decimal objects, their digits sum to 10 - base or radix of the
familiar

Both 37 and 91 feature in the opening Hebrew words of the Scriptures: the former as abundant factor in the opening verse; and the second, a factor of 3003 - sum of the first 8 words.

Again, since 91 = 7.13 = 2nd numerical hexagon x 2nd numerical hexagram, the product 37.91 = 7.13.37. This can be represented pictorially as a hexagon of stars of stars, as follows:

Observe that each of the 7 large stars comprises 13.37, or 481, counters. And since 481 is the sum of God (= 86) and heaven (=395) - i.e. words 3 and 5 of Genesis 1:1) - this result is worthy of close attention.
