I turn thirty-three.
It is a serious event.
The 33 is the most influential of all numbers. It is the Master Teacher. The 33 combines the 11 and the 22 and brings their potential to another level. When expressed to the fullest, the 33 lacks all personal ambition, and instead focuses its considerable abilities toward the spiritual uplifting of mankind. What makes the 33 especially impressive, is the high level of sincere devotion. This is shown in its determination to seek understanding and wisdom before preaching to others.
Readers at RTDM know I have always sought to seek understanding and wisdom before preaching to others through my posts. Right? On second thoughts, don’t bother answering that. I may not like the answer.
But wait there is more.
33 represents Christ Consciousness – universal nurturing, social consciousness raised to a world class, global responsibility, master teacher and healer. 33 is a higher octave of 6, the flower of life, Creation.The 33rd degree is the highest publicly known degree in Freemasonry. The number 33 signifies ‘Illumination’ and freedom from religious dogma (superstition). The human backbone contains 33 vertebra with the cranium (intellect) on top.
33 is also 32 around 1. If you look at the roof of the United Nations General Assembly you will see a large light circular light surrounded by 32 smaller lights. If you look at the United Nations’ own symbol you will see a circle divided up into 32 sections with the center being the 33rd. On the United Nations symbol you will notice 13 leaves on the olive branch. The symbol for the Soviet Union has this feature as well as 32 rays emanating from the sun with the sun being the 33rd.
In Math 33 is the largest positive integer that can not be expressed as a sum of different triangular numbers. It is also the smallest odd repdigit that’s not prime (unless we consider 1-digit integers to also be repdigits). 33 is the eighth distinct biprime comprising the prime factors (3.11). Its aliquot sum (n)is 15; itself a distinct biprime (3.5) in the following Aliquot sequence 33,15,9,4,3,1,0. (Note 33 is the 8th composite number to descend into the prime number 3, the others outside of this sequence being 30,26,16,12). The sum of the first four factorials is 33. Adding up the sums of divisors for the 1 through 6 yields 33. 33 is the smallest integer such that it and the next two integers all have the same number of divisors.
In addition to being globally responsible, a master teacher and healer and of high social consciousness, I am also divisible by 11. And for that matter also 3.
But enough of numerology.
In the true traditions of the Hindi movie when the father announces something of mighty significance on a birthday with a grand “Aaj meri beti ki solaahwa saalgida pe maine uski shaadi USA ke mashoor businessman Sir Mac-ke ek laute bete Vicky ke saath taay kar di hain”, let me inform you on my “many many years beyond solaah” saalgida that I have a book deal and am currently in the process of writing it. Since it’s all very much in the conceptual stage, the details are intentionally left vague. I have talked a bit more about the book here in this interview with Reuters.
I would have talked a bit more but right now I have to “focus my considerable abilities towards the spiritual uplift of mankind.” Something that I propose to do by uplifting myself with spirits.
Have a happy new year everyone.
