The Egyptian number system was based on counting in groups of ten. Why was this so? It is believed that men began to count in groups of ten using his ten fingers.

The number seven is the greater part of ten, its simplely represents many.

For instance the earth was made of manys days and on the last day God rested. :)

Yes 10 is a nice number
The number of days of creation at the start of the Old Testament is clearly an allegory for something else. We now know that this is not the way that the world as we know it came into being so the 7 day account is representative of some other meaning but significantly centred round the number 7.
Now 7 was also the sacred number of the much much older Sumerian civilisation so it would perhaps be wise to look there for the origins of this sacred number.
Moving much nearer our time the number 7 was the number used a great deal in the Book of Revelations. So is 7 a number of Revelation? and why?
The OT clearly also sees it as a sacred number because the 7th day was designated as Holy, a day when the works were completed

Hi all, nice forum :yes:

The seven is a perfect number, that's why is is the number of God, for help understand the number 7, pick up a dice, the 7 is repeat 3 times in the dice, this is the reason of the creation of the dice the way it is.

On the opposite side of number 1 you have number 6
on the opposite side of number 2 you have the number 5
on the opposite side of number 3 you have number 4

6+1=7
5+2= 7
4+3= 7

In the dice or cube, you have represented the corner stone rejected by man, 4 elements, the number of men (6) and the sacred number of God trinity (7).
The number 6 is related to men, because man was created at sixth day, (666) 3 times the creation of man. God rests from is creation at the 7 day.

Nice forum

Be well

Goodness! You know Jesus sufficiently well to confirm Mary Magdalen was his "companion" /and/ that he was "clearly aware" of junk science?

There are well-learned folk who aren't even certain he really existed, so I'd love to know how you got the opportunity to grokk with The Man, Jr. Time travel? Psychic union with his transtemporal soul? Or did you get a hold of some manner of secret document the rest of us aren't privy to?

7 is a simple number, greater than 6 but less than 8.

Nothing special.

Now the fifth daughter on the twelfth night
Told the first father that things weren't right
My complexion she said is much too white
He said come here and step into the light he says hmmm you're right
Let me tell second mother this has been done
But the second mother was with the seventh son
And they were both out on Highway 61.

Preposterous concept. I'm more of a Leonard Cohen fan.

7 x 7 = 49
4 + 9 = 13

7 = three on one side, one in the middle (perhaps wearing a crown), and three on the other side..

There is clearly a link between 'the gods and goddesses' and days of the week but the earliest civilisation, the Sumerians, did not believe that there were just the 7 planets but more as they depicted on seals, yet the sacred number of these ancient people was still the number 7. This has been attributed by some to the fact that in the Sumerian view of the solar system the Earth is the 7th planet when not counting starting with the sun but counting from the outside in towards the sun.
It is an interesting note that this is the way you would count the planets if coming into the solar system from the outside.

It sounds like you're buying into Sitchin et al. too much.  The seals are pretty consistent in showing seven planets--nothing beyond Saturn as they didn't have telescopes.

But even if you allow for alien communication, Earth wouldn't be the 7th planet counting the other way.  In the past couple decades astronomers have found a number of bodies beyond Pluto of reasonable size, including at least one slightly larger than Pluto.  So any incoming aliens would either count from Neptune (as we do now that Pluto has been "officially" downgraded from planet status), making Earth the 6th planet, or from one of the bodies beyond Pluto, making Earth perhaps 10th or 11th (or even more).

The Seven Ages of Man
William Shakespeare


    All the world's a stage,
    And all the men and women merely players:
    They have their exits and their entrances;
    And one man in his time plays many parts,
    His acts being seven ages. At first the infant,
    Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.
    Then the whining school-boy, with his satchel
    And shining morning face, creeping like snail
    Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
    Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
    Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier,
    Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard,
    Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in quarrel,
    Seeking the bubble reputation
    Even in the cannon's mouth. And then the justice,
    In fair round belly with good capon lined,
    With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
    Full of wise saws and modern instances;
    And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
    Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon,
    With spectacles on nose and pouch on side,
    His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
    For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice,
    Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
    And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
    That ends this strange eventful history,
    Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
    Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans every thing.



    Solomon Grundy,
    Born on a Monday,
    Christened on Tuesday,
    Married on Wednesday,
    Took ill on Thursday,
    Grew worse on Friday,
    Died on Saturday,
    Buried on Sunday.
    That was the end,
    Of Solomon Grundy.
