The "SACRED TRIANGLE" of the ancient Egyptians and the Fibonacci sequence.

So?
I mean, it's pretty obvious from the way that the sequence is constructed that you can make the latter members by adding up former ones
8+13= 21
8+13+13= 34
[8+13]+[8 +13 +13] =21+34 = 55
[8+13+13] +[8+13+8 +13 +13] =34+55= 89

And I guess Osiris is a bit miffed about the number 4 having been left off the sequence.
So, you haven't really said anything worthwhile.

3 + 4 + 5 = 12

3 * 4 * 5 = 60

They chose 12 s a number system because it is 2*3*2.
It's convenient to have a number base with lots of factors, and you get those by multiplying numbers, rather than by adding them.

Similarly, putting a factor of 5 into the mix gives you 2*3*5=30. Another factor of 2 gives 60.

It's nothing to do with addition, nor 3,4,5 triangles.

3 is the second triangular number (after 1)
1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, 28, 36, 45, 55

4 is the second square number (after 1)
1, 4, 9, 16, 25

5 is the second square pyramidal number (after 1)
1, 5, 14, 30, 55

Here it is, the true WISDOM of the ANCIENTS !!!

All the numbers on a roulette wheel add up to 666 !

Yes, indeed :
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 = 55
11 + 12 + 13 + 14 + 15 + 16 + 17 + 18 + 19 + 20 = 100 + 55
21 + 22 + 23 + 24 + 25 + 26 + 27 + 28 + 29 + 30 = 200 + 55
31 + 32 + 33 + 34 + 35 + 36 = 180 + 21

55 + 100 + 55 + 200 + 55 + 180 + 21 = 666

55 and 21 are numbers from the Fibonacci sequence !!!
1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55 ...

May I ask what the "theory" is?

So why did you post this thread in the "New Theories" section? Is this even science?

A lot of people (scientists, in particular).

So what is your definition of science?

So you don't even know what science is and therefore can't argue that this thread is even about science. Why should we bother keeping this thread around?

Because NO one KNOWS what will be science in 10 years.

Certainly not superstitious numerology nonsense like this.

This is not superstition. It's good math.
Science BEGAN in the temples.
The first scientists were priests and monks !

And then things changed.
If the Book doesn't agree with the evidence science rejects the Book and the priests reject the evidence.

But that's not the point here.
The fact is that your display of primary school level arithmetic doesn't actually tell us anything, does it?

I don't know that I won't wake up as a monkey tomorrow. That doesn't mean I shouldn't act like a human today. What you are doing now is not the science of today.

Pascal's triangle and Newton's binomial is NOT science !
Pascal and Newton ARE not scientists !!!
They used "sacred triangle" arithmetic.

No they weren't. Priests and monks tried to invoke supernatural powers to explain natural phenomena, which by definition is not science.
You seem to have posted strings of numbers for no good reason as you have in previous threads and then come up with evasive nonsense when challenged as to why you have posted this.

The philosophers got back to me, apparently science is the understanding that knowledge is lacking,  to become a scientist all you have to do is aknowledge you do not know.  I may give it a try !
