## Marty Leeds’ Radio Hour

## Scott Onstott & Elsa Va

**[Part 1]**

Who is the grand architect? Are mathematics the language of the creator? Why does modern Science dismiss numerology? What is the significance of the number 33 found in nature?

**Scott Onstott** created an epic documentary film called Secrets in Plain Sight, a densely-packed series about esoteric patterns found in art, architecture, and urban design. Volume 1 runs 3hrs43min and is free to watch online.

**Marty Leeds** is the host of the podcast The Marty Leeds’ Mathematical Radio Hour discussing everything from myth, math, spirituality, philosophy, sacred geometry, lost civilizations and the holy sciences.

**What is so significant about the number 33?**

## In Mathematics:

- 33 is the smallest sum of two different positive numbers, each of which raised to the fifth power: 1^5 + 2^5 = 33.
- 33 is the largest positive integer that cannot be expressed as a sum of different triangular numbers. It is also the smallest odd repdigit that is not a prime number.
- 33 is the eighth distinct semiprime comprising the prime factors (3 • 11). Its aliquot sum is 15; itself a discrete semiprime (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) Since 33 is a semiprime with both its prime factors being Gaussian primes, 33 is a Blum integer.
- The sum of the first four positive factorials is 33. Adding up the sums of divisors of 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.
- It is also the first member of the first cluster of three semiprimes (33,34,35); the next such cluster is 85,86,87.
- Since the greatest prime factor of 332 + 1 = 1090 is 109, which is obviously more than 33 twice, 33 is a Størmer number.

## In Science:

- 33 is the atomic number of arsenic.
- A normal human spine has 33 vertebrae when the bones that form the coccyx are counted individually.
- 33 is, according to the Newton scale, the temperature at which water boils.

### Astronomy

- Messier object M33, a magnitude 7.0 galaxy in the constellation Triangulum, also known as the Triangulum Galaxy.
- The New General Catalogue object NGC 33, a double star in the constellation Pisces
- The Saros number of the solar eclipse series which began on -1982 August 2 and ended on -485 January 17. The duration of Saros series 33 was 1496.5 years, and it contained 84 solar eclipses.
- The Saros number of the lunar eclipse series which began on -1662 May 22 and ended on -364 July 10. The duration of Saros series 33 was 1298.1 years, and it contained 73 lunar eclipses.

## In Religion:

- The divine name Elohim appears 33 times in the story of creation in the opening chapters of Genesis.
- Lag Ba’omer is a minor Jewish holiday which falls on the 33rd day of the Omer
- Jesus’s age when he was crucified in 33 A.D., according to many Christian traditions, though not verified historically.
- According to Al-Ghazali the dwellers of Heaven will exist eternally in a state of being age 33.
- Jesus performed 33 recorded miracles
- Islamic prayer beads are generally arranged in sets of 33, corresponding to the widespread use of this number in dhikr rituals. Such beads may number thirty-three in total or three distinct sets of thirty-three for a total of ninety-nine, corresponding to the names of God.
- 33 is not only a numerical representation of “the Star of David,” but also the numerical equivalent of AMEN: 1+13+5+14=33.
- Pope John Paul I, the 33-day pope. One of the shortest reigns in papal history, and it resulted in the most recent 3-pope year.
- The highest degree in the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.
- A religious image of the Virgin Mary from the 18th century is known in Uruguay as “VirgendelosTreintayTres” (Virgin of the Thirty-Three); it was consecrated by Pope John Paul II in his visit to Uruguay in 1988.
- There are several churches dedicated to this Marian devotion, being the most important the Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of the Thirty-Three in Florida, Uruguay.

Hi, thanks for this post, just saying about the number 666; King Salomon,

used to collect 666 Talents of GOLD in Taxes, each year, it might ring a

bell with you… Great show thanks

I meant Solomon, of course, I really love the work of Marty Leeds, sure

has good points and special insights. Cheers
