# The Mystery of the Number 3!

Updated: Aug 17, 2021

What number multiplied in multiples by itself results in the same number over and over again? Let me explain. Let us first start with the number 1, which is a basic number. Basic numbers are from 1 to 9, with zero not being a number at all; however, simply a placeholder. Numbers beyond 9 are not basic numbers. We will get more into this later.

So, we begin with the number 1, which when multiplied by itself results in 1, since 1 x 1 = 1. The next basic number is the number 2, which when it is multiplied by itself results in 2 x 2 = 4. The next basic number is 3, which when it is multiplied by itself results in 3 x 3 = 9, nine being the highest basic number. The next basic number is 4, which when multiplied by itself is 4 x 4 = 16. The next basic number is 5, which when multiplied by itself results in 5 x 5 = 25. The next basic number is 6, which when multiplied by itself results in 6 x 6 = 36. The next basic number is 7, which when multiplied by itself results in 7 x 7 = 49. The next basic number is 8, which when multiplied by itself results in 8 x 8 = 64. And, the last basic number is 9, which when multiplied by itself results in 9 x 9 = 81. When you add 8 + 1, the result is 9.

This is where it gets interesting! So, let us add these non-basic results and see what we find!

· 1 x 1 = 1 and 1 is a basic number so we leave it as it.

· 2 x 2 = 4 and 4 is a basic number so we leave it as is.

· 3 x 3 = 9 and 9 is a basic number so we leave it as is.

· 4 x 4 = 16 and 16 is not a basic number so we add 1 + 6 which = 7, a basic number.

· 5 x 5 = 25 and 25 is not a basic number so we add 2 + 5 which = 7, a basic number.

· 6 x 6 = 36 and 36 is not a basic number so we add 3 + 6, which = 9, a basic number.

· 7 x 7 = 49 and 49 is not a basic number so we add 4 + 9 which = 13. Then we add 1 + 3 to give us 4, which is a basic number.

· 8 x 8 = 64 which is not a basic number so we add 6 + 4 which = 10. Then we add 1 + 0, which = 1 and 1 is a basic number.

· 9 x 9 = 81 and 81 is not a basic number so we add 8 + 1 which = 9, a basic number.

As we can see from the list above, everywhere I have underlined a multiplication, the result is always 9. This is due to the fact that each of them is a multiple of 3. So, as long as we continue to multiply the number 3 in powers of 3, the results will always add up to 9 if you add all of the resultant's individual numbers together.

Let us try a few more examples to get us all on the same track of reasoning. Let us try 3 raised to the power of 9, and the resultant is 19,683. Now we add all up the individual figures of the resultant number, which is 1 + 9 + 6 + 8 + 3, and that will give us 27. Now add the 2 + 7 and you get 9!

As an example, let us take the number 2 and multiply it by a multiple of itself, take the individual numbers in the resultant and add them together to see if we end up with 2. So, you can try any number you choose to test my theory. Anyway, let us try 2 raised to the power of 8, which is 256. Now we add 2 + 5 + 6 = 13. Then we add 1 + 3 and have 4. So, 2 does not work in the same way. Try another basic number from 1 to 9 and see if you can get the expected result of the number you select being revealed after all of the individual numbers in the resultant adding up to that particular basic number. If you find one that works just as 3 does, please let me know if you please.

Let us return to 3 one more time for the fun of it. Let us raise 3 to the power of 25, and the results are 847,288,609,443. Surely this will not result in 9, or will it? Let us add them up; 8 + 4 + 7 + 2 + 8 + 8 + 6 + 0 + 9 + 4 + 4 + 3 = 63 and then we add 6 + 3 to get 9. Is this not interesting? Try it yourself so you will not think I selected just those numbers that would add up to 9. However, the number you try must be a multiple of 3, or 6, or 9. Which themselves are multiples of 3. So, you see, there is something special about the number “3” is there not?

What makes "3" so special? Well, for one, it is the number of the Holy Trinity of our Lord God. That being the Father, the Son, and The Holy Spirit. Would it not make sense that our Lord God's creation would be patterned after the Trinity of our Lord God? The 3 deities together make up the God Head, as it has been referred to. It could very well be that "3" is the building block of the Universe. How can this be? Simply put, it is the foundation number. You see, the most stable and efficient number system would be base 12 and not base 10 as we use today. The number 3 is again a multiple of 12 as well. When you read through the Holy Scriptures, the most often found numbers are 3, and 12. Are they not? For example, the 12 disciples, the 12 foundation stones of the New Jerusalem, the 12 tribes of Israel, and more. Look for yourself and you will find this to be true. The number 3 is mentioned more than any other number in the Holy Scriptures. Especially, when you get to the Holy Scriptures concerning the crucifixion of our Lord Christ Jesus. I wrote an essay on that very subject which you can find on my web page blog titled "The Crucifixion of our Lord Christ Jesus." Please read it and it will open your eyes to wonders in the Holy Scripture.

Try this with any other basic number and you will not get the expected answer of that number repeating itself in multiples of itself like you will with the number 3. Thank you for your time today. Have fun with this! And report to me if you find that I am in error in my evaluations.

I do hope you have a very nice remaining day! Adios for now my friends.
