I am fascinated by the concept of numbers that arn't numbers
Ya, you and me both! I think this thread is playful enough that if I posted my understanding of numbers it wouldn't get off-topic...
For me PI is a seed, specifically the seed of randomness. And that seed originated out of 7 divided by 7 divided by 7 which is 0.142857142857142857142857142857142857...which is greater than PI even though PI has no end. 0.142857 is the apple (of the eye), PI evolved out of 0.142857.
I often-times struggle with basic math beyond the tables I learned in elementary school. For me numbers mean nothing on their own. But on a greater scale they tell a story that is remarkable when woven together in patterns. That's the only use I have for numbers, they are patterns. Words are only numbers become different shapes. Even the Holy Bible is written in number form at the foundation but translated into words by man (by inspiration). Within it of course there is even the book of numbers -- oh the stories it explains!
There is a remarkable fellow in the UK, his name is Daniel Tammet, if you want to get an idea of the complexity of the human brain and how it can relate to the binary base of all that is check him out [en.wikipedia.org...]
Some of us just have a very radical different perspective on reality than the average bear -- we live "in the beginning" rather than the end where most people choose to be. Within that beginning there is a library that is not understood by present day humanity but through evolution will become more apparent.
My behaviour in this life is how I tend to the garden that I am born into in the next incarnation.
