## 5040 The Perfect Number

Plato mentions in his Laws that 5040 is a convenient number to use for dividing many things (including both the citizens and the land of a state) into lesser parts.  Claiming it to be the ideal population of a city, he thought that the people’s well-being depended almost as much on the number as on justice.  5040 as it turns out is a very special number. One of the reasons 5040 was so highly revered was because it is a superior highly composite number.  Translation: No other number below it has as many divisors.  5040 has the same amount of divisors as there are minutes in an hour, or seconds in a minute.  5040 is a very practical number, being divisible by 1-12, except 11.  There are only ten of these rare numbers below a million, and it just so happens that the combined radii of Earth and…

## The Four Earthly Elements

Fire, Air, Earth, Water, These are the elements that make up our Earthly realm. The total surface angles of the first four of the (phi)ve Platonic solids, our four Elements as associated by the Ancients, equals Earth’s mean diameter in statute miles to 99.97% accuracy.  Our Moon also resonates with the Platonic solids, the cube in particular.   Even the Sun can be represented using these “platonic miles” if you will.  It’s diameter is very close to 864,000 miles, which reflects the Decad and Platonic geometries. The combination of Earth, Sun, and Moon all relating to these Platonic miles greatly increases the statistical significance of the correlation made.  It makes it a lot harder to dismiss as merely playing with numbers. The Aggregate Number of the Physical World (John Michell) Plato associated the first four of these perfect solids with the four elements, Fire, Air, Earth,…
