This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you,
that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
1 John 1.5
The Number 137 is well-known throughout the physics community as the approximate inverse
of the Fine Structure
constant. It even has a name - alpha - which seems to be a supernatural coincidence
given the context in which this number appears - John 1.1-5 - and the numerous
highly significant identities associated with the Greek word Alpha.
The history and precise
of alpha can be found on the U.S. Government's
National Institute of Standards and Technology site.
The current value reported from NIST is:
|alpha = 7.297352533 x 10-3
+/- 0.000000027 x 10-3
|alpha-1 = 137.0359997|
The value of alpha is extremely well established, with an uncertainty of about 2.7 x 10-11
- i.e. about three parts in 100 billion. It appears in Quantum
Electrodynamics (aka QED) as the probability of interaction
between Light and Matter.
It has been the subject of intense study - many of the best physicists have felt that there must
be some connection between alpha and the underlying structure of the Universe. A light hearted
review of some of the more famous attempts are described here:
www.137.com/137 . Without
doubt, the most famous quote concerning alpha comes from Nobel Laureate
Richard P. Feynman .
In his comment on page 129 of his book QED, he refers to the
"coupling constant, e" - the charge of the electron - which is
proportional to alpha:
There is a most profound and beautiful question associated with the observed coupling constant,
e, the amplitude for a real electron to emit or absorb a real photon. It is a simple number that has
been experimentally determined to be close to 0.08542455. (My physicist friends won't recognize this
number, because they like to remember it as the inverse of its square: about 137.03597 with about
an uncertainty of about 2 in the last decimal place. It has been a mystery ever since
it was discovered more than fifty years ago, and all good theoretical physicists put this
number up on their wall and worry about it.) Immediately you would like to know where this number
for a coupling comes from: is it related to pi or perhaps to the base of natural logarithms?
Nobody knows. It's one of the greatest d--n mysteries of physics: a magic number that comes to us
with no understanding by man. You might say the "hand of God" wrote that
number, and "we don't know how He pushed his pencil." We know what kind of a dance to do
experimentally to measure this number
very accurately, but we don't know what kind of dance to do on the computer to make this number come
out, without putting it in secretly!
There are many reasons great minds have been strongly attracted to this number. Not only is it prime, but
is a beautiful prime made up of Unity (1, God) and a prime division of Ten (10 = 3 + 7), with echoes
of the Trinity and Perfection, Fulness, Seven Spirits of God. Three united divine digits - 137 - so different
from the directional composites 4 (2D) and 6 (3D). To find this as the large prime factor
governing the structure of the Divine Prologue - the premier text linking Creation and Light - is
certainly intriguing, to say the least. This is all greatly amplified by the concepts associated
through its value, such as The God of Truth, Miracle of the Lord,
Wheel, and Cross or Crucifix.
There is a profound relation between the inverse Fine Structure Constant and the Holographic Generating Set (A = 27, B = 37, C = 73)
revealed by the continued fraction expansion of 137.0359997. An explanation of continued fractions,
complete with an online calculator (so the results displayed below can be instantly checked) has been
by Stephen Schmidt. Here is the continued fraction expansion, displaying the first six terms:
The fist term is simply the sum of the elements of the Generating Set, denoted by
the letter D:
137 = A + B + C = D
The table below displays each approximation (called a convergent) as an exact combination of GenSet elements:
It is extremely important to absorb what is going on here. The first four terms of the continued fraction
- derived from the experimental value of alpha inverse - are expressible as extremely simple
combinations of the GenSet numbers
A = 27, B = 37, and D = 137. This means that this expansion could
be used to define the GenSet, with the value of C = 73 determined by the definition of
D = A + B + C.
The second term of the expansion involves the Number 3700 that links Genesis 1.1, John 1.1,
and the GenSet, as discussed
with respect to the John 1.1 fragment of the
Genesis 1.1 + AB = 3700 = John 1.1 + C
Dividing this equation by A yields:
This means that the second term of the continued fraction yields the exact value
that unites Genesis 1.1 and John 1.1 in the the Creation HyperHolograph. To find that this number is
generated by a simple combination of elements from the Holographic Generating Set establishes yet
another independent line of evidence suggesting that this set was carefully designed by God before
the foundation of the World - or rather, this set was designed for
the the foundation of the world! Of course, this
implication is greatly amplified when we recall that
the GenSet is unique in the infinite sea of sets composed of three postitve integers, in that
it is the only set able to generate the fundamental numbers of the Creation HyperHolograph with a metric < 4.
