Stars in our numbers

One plus one, two.

Two plus two, four.

Three plus three, six.

… a star slowly emerges.

Equal numbers giving rise to something bright.

One plus two, three.

Two plus three, five.

Three plus four, seven.

… cuts of diamonds slowly emerge.

Unequal numbers giving rise to something brilliant.

“Whatever sequence, code or pattern you’re trying to study, write or discover you must remember: the best secrets are kept in plain sight, the simpler they’re the more difficult it is for the human mind to accept.  There are stars in our numbers, there are impurities in our diamond.”

  1. Actually, Chioma, you wrote a sweetly brilliant piece. One of our great American authors, Carl Sandberg, once wrote that “the sea and the stars are held by numbers.” The poem is called Monkey of Stars. One of the lines is — “Oh hoh, yah yah, loo loo, the meaning was five, six, seven.”

    You have made my day! Five out of five galaxies!
