What Hath Eratosthenes Wrought?


Numbers sieve us, this table and chart are something he hath wrought!


Not bad for a nearly-2300-year-old dead man, eh?

P.S. – Hey, Aleister Crowley! Did you know that the discrepancy between the ceiling root of 79 –

which is one more than the number of cards in a tarot deck, a.k.a. The Book of Thoth –

and its splitting root (see my previous posts and associated mathematical reports for definitions of those two terms), and is also the prime number greater than 7 and less than 100 that you, unjustifiably at first glance, left out of your list (published recently in the volume 777) –

is 31, the number of Liber AL, the Book of the Law? I’m telling OTO and its local chapter here, Dove and Serpent Oasis. But I must say, also not bad, for a 147-year=old dead man.

Disclaimer: I am not, nor do I necessarily ever intend to be, a member of Dove and Serpent Oasis or the OTO (Ordo Templi Orientis), although I was an “Associate Member” of the latter, once upon a time. I did, however, join the American Mathematical Society just yesterday. I am frequently very late getting to things.
