Nine is the number of magic. Nine is a sacred number. Nine is the number of completion and fulfillment. Nine is the number of man. Nine is a symbol of wisdom and good leadership. Nine is the number of heaven. In Hinduism nine is the number of Brahma, the Creator.

When multiplied 9 always reproduces itself. 2 x 9 = 18  1+8 = 9      3 x 9 = 27  2+7 = 9      4 x 9 =36  3+6 = 9      5 x 9 = 45  4+5 = 9
 6 x 9 = 54  5+4 = 9      7 x 9 = 63  6 +3 = 9     8 x 9 =72  7 +2 = 9       and so on forever.

Mystical Number Nine
Minnie-ism for today:
"Was never any good at math, so all numbers are rather mystical to me."

The referance to the number 9 and its mystical properties are to be found all over the globe and through out history as well as religion. The Apostle Paul wrote in his letter to the Galatians about nine fruits of the Spirit. Galatians 5:22. The nine fruits of the Spirit are:
Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-control.

Jesus died on the 9th hour, hanging on the cross. The Ninth Hour is the Hour of Prayer. I have heard it said  that the number 9 is the number of man and therefor the number of the beast. 666 (6+6+6=18 1+8=9.)

Numbers can be very fascinating but they can be dangerous as well. Numbers can become an obsession. A good example of that can be seen in the film "The Number 23" Many people with OCD find safety living in the rituals of numbers. The Beatles White album had a track on it called Revolution 9, when played backwards the song was a disturbing collection of referances to death. So disturbing that to this day I can not listen to the whole thing. Here is a taste of it:

Numerology has been attacked for going against the laws and teachings of God. In fact, just the reverse is true. The Bible, the Talmud, the Koran, even the Egyptian Book of the Dead, have alluded to numbers in ways that require interpretation by people of wisdom.

The Nine Muses in Greek mythology were the daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne (Memory). Zeus and Mnemosyne had a love affair that lasted nine nights.Muses were the goddesses who inspired gifted artists, musicians, dancers and authors. Plato built an altar for the Nine Muses in the library of his famous school."Muse" is the source for words like museum, amuse, music and mosaic. The word "museum" means shrine or temple to the Muses.

In Norse mythology there is a time called Ragnarok. Ragnarok is the doom of the gods. Ragnarok is the end of the world. During Ragnarok the god named Thor (the thunder god) fights a horrific battle with the sea serpent named Jormungand, also known as the Midgard serpent. Thor finally manages to kill the serpent.As the serpent dies, Thor walks nine steps. As he takes his ninth step, Thor falls dead to the ground. He died from all the poison the serpent had spit out.

9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 99999999

There is enough subject matter on the number 9 to fill a book. I find it fascinating, you might find it boring. Mathematics is the only universal language. I may not speak it well but I do understand its importance.

I will leave you with this question, why is it said that a cat has 9 lives...not 6 or any other number?...9

Yeah, yeah, but what about the 7 has many legends such as 9. And in the consumer society and competivives what counts is to be number 1. Anyway, your post is very interesting and fun. Greetings.

You deserve a PhD after these posts. They're probably the most fascinating I find. Why do cats have 9 lives? Your black cat in the side bar has more than nine because I try to swat him often enough and he doesn't care a bit. :)

Six is the evil number isn't it?

Oh, how interesting! I'd never seen all this on nine... I tried to post 9 muses today but came up with 11--that is the way it is with me--my whole family has birthdays that add to 11... but then I never did anything normal.
