### 512.73

512.73 is the Dewey Decimal system classification for analytical number theory.

What is the significance of 512.73?

According to "The Penguin Dictionary of Curious and Interesting Numbers":

First I subtract it from 666, the Number of the Beast in the Book of Revelation:
666 - 512.73 = 153.27
Behold!
The same digits appear, but rearranged, signifying the effect of removing evil from the world.

The whole number part is now 153, the number of fishes hauled from the river by Peter.
The decimal part is the sacred number 3, raised to its own power.

Divide the Number of the Beast by 3, and you obtain 222,
the Dewey Decimal system classification for the Old Testament.
Add 3 and you obtain 225, the classification for the New Testament.
Add 3 again, and you obtain 228, the classification of the Book of Revelation.

1. Kind of reminds me of gematria. Somehow everything has new meaning because the value of this word + the value of that word = the value of this phrase, which is tangentially related to that person who said this.

But with so many different words and phrases and numbers, it would be odd indeed if there were nothing that could be made of it.

2. I think that is what the author was trying to show with so many numbers, you can always come up with something ridiculous.

3. I hope so. Though there are folks who buy into the Bible code or whatever it was. Thankfully, I'm not one of them. :)

4. I don't believe in the Bible Codes either. With that many letters in the Tanach (How many? I should find out and use that as a number.) we should be able to find something. This is especially true when you consider that the Tanach is written in a language without vowels. Believers point out that is is so unlikely to find what we find. True, but we should be able to find something. (In the lottery, it is extremely unlikely to get the jackpot number they get, but they have to get some number.) As some writer said, it is like looking for hay in a haystack.

I will change my view if anyone ever uses the Bible Codes to predict something BEFORE it happens.

1. Sort of like AGW

2. That was supposed to be

AGW?????

3. "Anthropogenic Global Warming."
