“Pythagoras believed that numbers had personalities. They were masculine or feminine, perfect or incomplete, beautiful or ugly. He considered ten to be the ideal number, [summed by] one, two, three, and four, and when written in dot formation it formed a perfect triangle, named Tetractys. He believed that four signified nature, and that ten signified the universe, [and the sum of 1,2,3, and 4 was divine]. The Tetractys is both a mathematical idea and a metaphysical symbol that embraces itself, the principles of the natural world, the harmony of the cosmos, the ascent to the divine, and the mysteries of the divine realm. This symbol was so revered that it inspired Pythagoras’ followers to swear by his name as the one who brought this gift to humanity.” Carl Huffman
