Associating the concept of "Mother Earth" to a number reference is not that difficult. though its substitution seen during a later age may not be clearly defined without reference to some past adoption thereof. Hence, instead of referencing the Earth as a planet it becomes a "Mother", even though its parental care is questionable. And then if someone wants to associate their obsession with the Earth in some disguised form so as not to be viewed as a Nature worshiper in a conventional sense, the usage of geometrical symbols, directions, or some other associated quality can be used such as a number.

For example one might use the number "4" as representative of the four directions idea: (north-south-east-west). Alternatively, one might use the following associations and ideas:

  • One: primary planet for life
  • Two: sibling to moon and mars; Nature is two-based (reference: yin/yang concepts)
  • Three: Position from the Sun
  • Four: 4 directions
  • Five: 5 elements: earth- air- water- fire- soil (or 5 polyhedra of reality... tetrahedron (or pyramid), cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, icosahedron)
  • Six: 6 directions/orientations: up/down, right/left, forward/back
  • Seven: 6 orientations plus the self in the center
  • Eight: In Babylonian myth there were seven spheres plus an eighth realm, the fixed stars, where the gods lived. As a result, 8 is often associated with paradise. Muslims believe that there are seven hells but eight paradises, signifying God's mercy. In Buddhism 8 is a lucky number, possibly because of the eight petals of the lotus, a plant associated with luck in India and a favourite Buddhist symbol.
  • Nine: angels
  • Ten: perfection according to Pythagorean principles.
  • etc.

If you are not a mathematician and you "play around with numbers and idea" you might be labeled a numerologist. But if you are a person who limits the play of numbers strictly to numbers, your activity might be described as a game or recreation of thought. While such activity is a list of one or a few numbers confined to some basic arithmetical operations, the use of one or more numbers in creating a list of seemingly non-number ideas is viewed disparagingly. Even though many ideas are disguised references to some enumeration, (such as for example the sequence "primary- secondary- tertiary"); to place it along with other ideas which exhibit a similar orientation using different words (such as for example monism- dualism- pluralism... which gives rise to "1, 2, many"); a person might not be said to be engaging in numerology if the list is short and not used to express some personal idea.

If your intellectual pastime is a conserved one in the usage of numbers being used to reference an idea, no one might take notice. However, if you begin to get a large following and they use some number reference as a means to assert multiple other idea, then such a once-upon-a-time innocent idea may well be viewed as a threat. So long as the worship of "Mother Earth" is confined to old ideas, such a practice is not viewed as a threat to present day institutions of religion, particularly if they start to lose revenues. By analyzing the concept of "Mother Earth" to weed out its nonsense from current orientations, alternative thinkers will come to establish a more comprehensive grasp of Nature that current institutions of religion do not appreciate nor incorporate into their belief structures. To view them as the silliness which they actually are, begins their downfall. Goodbye to all Western religions and Eastern Philosophies.

In several different cultures we can see their early writing systems of enumeration expressing the usage of a single line for the quantity "1", two lines for the quantity "2", and three lines for the quantity "3". Apparently, (due to a lack of evidence), the usage of four lines for the quantity "4" is not a recurring theme. Instead, in some cases, a different mode of indication is used. It's as if what may be described as a simple referencing system to use four lines was not adopted. This is a curious feature of human cognitive activity as if the absence of what we might describe as a logical step, was either not seen or something caused the usage of an alternative association. In other words, why not simply use four lines? While this is not universally the case as seen in the following images, we can note a cognitive shift taking place beyond the "three". We see a representation of this when we use a comma to organize the ones-tens-hundreds from the thousands, which begins another series of three before using a comma to indicate the next three involving millions and so forth.

Use of 3 lines but not 4 lines

And while on the topic of the number 3, let us look at a short reference:

The number 3 is a very mystical and spiritual number featured in many folk-tales (three wishes, three guesses, three little pigs, three bears, three Billy goats gruff). In ancient Babylon the three primary gods were Anu, Bel (Baal), and Ea, representing Heaven, Earth, and the Abyss. Similarly, there were three aspects to the Egyptian sun god: Khepri (rising), Re (midday), and Atum (setting). In Christianity there is the Trinity of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Plato saw 3 as being symbolic of the triangle, the simplest spatial shape, and considered the world to have been built from triangles. In German folklore a paper triangle with a cross in each corner and a prayer in the middle was thought to act as protection against gout, as well as protecting a cradle from witches. Three black animals were often sacrificed when attempting to conjure up demons. On the other hand, a three-coloured cat was a protective spirit. In William Shakespeare's Macbeth (1606–07) there are three witches, and their spell begins, "Thrice the brindled cat hath mewed," reflecting such superstitions. Also, 3 is the dimension of the smallest magic square in which every row, column, and diagonal sums to 15. ("number symbolism." Encyclopædia Britannica, 2013.) ["Brindled cat": having a grey or brown streak or a pattern or a patchy colouring.]

And what do we see right at the beginning? A reference to the number 3 as being mystical and spiritual. Talk about setting the stage for the reader to view the value "3" in such a context, what better way than to influence other writers as well. Nature uses simple numbers, it is humans who look at Nature trying to unravel its basic patterns who decide to use complex equations to express simplicity.

Here is a list of recurring "threes" associated with the Gaea Mythology in Ancient Greece, though other cultures may have had their own term and associated patterns that have not been itemized as have the Indo-European perspectives in different subject areas:

  • 3 destiny goddesses called the fates (Hora): Clotho (Spinner), Lachesis (Allotter), Atropos (Inflexible)
  • 3 vengeance goddesses called the furies (Erinyes/ Eumenides): Allecto ("Unceasing in Anger"), Tisiphone ("Avenger of Murder"), and Megaera ("Jealous")
  • 3 Cyclops: Arges(Bright), Brontes (Thunderer), Steropes (Lightener), —who forged the thunderbolts of Zeus.
  • 3 Gorgon: (Monster figure in Greek mythology. Homer spoke of a single Gorgon—a monster of the underworld. The later Greek poet Hesiod increased the number of Gorgons to three—Stheno (the Mighty), Euryale (the Far Springer), and Medusa (the Queen)—and made them the daughters of the sea god Phorcys and of his sister-wife Ceto. The Attic tradition regarded the Gorgon as a monster produced by Gaea, the personification of Earth, to aid her sons against the gods. ("Gorgon." Encyclopædia Britannica, 2013.)
  • 3 Hesperides: (Greek: "Daughters of Evening"); They were usually three in number, Aegle, Erytheia, and Hespere (or Hesperethusa), but by some accounts were as many as seven. ("Hesperides." Encyclopædia Britannica, 2013.)
  • 3 apparent lovers of Gaea: Uranus (Heaven), Tartarus (Nether world), as Themis she was the 2nd consort of Zeus (sky and weather god).

Since so much of our present day knowledge about the Mythology of Ancient Greece comes from Homer and Hesiod, their inclinations as writers need to be kept in mind when reading their accounts. If instead of using patterns-of-three Hesiod had chosen some other pattern, one can only guess as to what influence such a pattern would have had on later writers and readers.

  • Homer: flourished 9th or 8th century BCE?, Ionia? [now in Turkey]... presumed author of the Iliad and the Odyssey.
  • Hesiod: Greek Hesiodos, Latin Hesiodus. flourished c. 700 BC... one of the earliest Greek poets, often called the "father of Greek didactic poetry." Two of his complete epics have survived, the Theogony, relating the myths of the gods, and the Works and Days, describing peasant life.
    • Hesiod appears to have been a writer who indulged in the use of "threes" just as we see as a recurring theme in later fairy tales and writers such as H.G. Wells (i.e. his War of the Worlds story).

Playfully referencing the Earth as a "mother" is one thing, but worshipping it as a goddess is quite another. If we take the metaphor too seriously we can find ourselves making further assumptions related to human development which do not apply and might lead us towards overlooking a distinction more useful. And though humans have used Anthropomorphic labeling in regards to planetary phenomena and other non-human forms (and formulas); the life stages of a planet can not be equated as being similar to humans to the extent humans do not consider that such processes of degeneration may be proportionally different and make up an equation which alters the current usage of an ideological pairing by which to construct some simplified analogy... which, if embraced as an ideology as many Witches, Wiccans, and Pagans no doubt do, will create a form of cognitive referencing too antiquated to make any use of for a further advancement in ideas that former Pagans had a grasp of in their metaphors, allusions and constructed philosophies described as mystery religions, the occult (that which is hidden), and has a currency with the term esoteric.


In other words, any inclination by present day people to embrace some ancient idea and add to it some modernized script of comparison may have been an effective means by which people in the past made some headway in understanding Natural processes and the human condition; such a technique is not necessarily as viable a strategy of thinking for today's circumstances. Hence, the use of the term "Gaea" if not Witch, Wiccan and Pagan, are part of an older ideological orientation that can not be embraced as defacto terms of importance because they have attached allusions and illusions which can bind a person to a former way of thinking which disables any effort to step cognitively forward.

It is rather incredible to believe that so many billions of people that have looked at and thought about and even worshipped the Sun, Earth and Moon, that the basic patterns by which this triplex of inter-acting planetary objects exhibit in relation to the genesis, maintenance, and further development of different life forms— have not been organized in any consistent and easy to understand way involving a simple arithmetical illustration. Instead, they pair patterns in accord with an immediate interest in survival such as when to plant and harvest crops, and other seasonal variations. There has also been a recurring observation of the Moon's appearance in a cyclical fashion spanning approximately 29 days. The lunar and solar cycles have been well document by both present day and ancient peoples, but they were inclined to attach human values to such patterns. The idea of identifying patterns in very distant pre-human days did not and does not typically occur as a consideration.

Although we see recurring instances of life forms such as for example with 1 head, 2 eyes, 3 sections (such as in the insect's "head-thorax-abdomen"), 4 limbs (2 arms/2 legs), and 5 digits (fingers/toes); etc., we do not think of such a list as a tally sheet and the patterns exhibited by the Sun-Moon-Earth triplex as another tally sheet; whereby we have what can be viewed is a type of double-entry accounting system, much like an old two-stick tally system. In my view, the Earth-Sun-Moon triplex as well as biology are primitive accounting systems which persuade, which dupe human consciousness into repeating and maintaining systems of thought which are tied to such primivities of expression. A way of looking at this is to think about the idea in which it has been considered that early humans had the same brains as present day humans and that if a child from the past could be reared in the present, they would think like a present day child, but because they are reared in an environment where they are exposed to antiquated ideas, they necessarily come to adopt them as if such ideas... such patterns were an expression of truth, reality, intelligence, wisdom, etc... In other words, if present day humans have the necessary brain functioning which enables it to learn ideas that will come thousands, if not millions of years in the future, than it behooves humanity to understand the primitive patterns humans are being taught... by rote, by the teaching staff Nature decided to hire and has retained for billions of years.

It is a teaching staff which has a shelf life and continues to exhibit some very old esoteric, occult, and mystery religion ideas that the primivity of biology has adopted by adapting to. However, the old rule-of-thumbs are changing due to the aging of the teaching staff that were once referred to as gods and goddesses, and some continue to refer to as Mother Earth, Lunar goddess, and Solar god.

For example, while everyone and his pet frog sees 1 sun, 1 earth, 1 moon, they do not think to mark these numerical references on a tally stick, as I no doubt think early humans may have, just as they may have made marks on a bone, stick or whatever medium was present, to pair a mark with each finger and toe, despite how someone in the future might otherwise want to interpret how early humans may have been thinking when they made or whittled simple lines; that are sometime construed as some advanced form of mathematics like the Ishango bone has:

Do marks indicate an advanced Mathematics, or present day primitive interpretation?

And at this location the Statement "Nature Likes Complex Numbers" is asserted by the commentator: How Imaginary Numbers Were Invented; and despite my attempts to place the following comment, I could not get it to post:

Very interesting presentation. However. I have to take an exception to the idea that Nature likes complex numbers. It is more likely that Mathematicians like equations which suggest the existence of a complexity that they alone are privy to best illustrating with a symbology consistent with their artistically linked model of conceptualization. Mathematicians have BIG EGOS despite all the pretensed humility. Furthermore, when we have hundreds of examples of Nature using simple numbers, one must question the rationale behind the statement concerning complexity. Here is a site which displays hundreds of simple numbers being used by Nature:

The point is that I can see a few recurring patterns with respect to the activities of the Sun - Earth - Moon Triplex that can be illustrated arithmetically, and can be found not only in a zoological approach to comparative anatomy and developmental biology, but in human cognitive activity in every single subject. Hence, let us compare some basic patterns of the planetary triplex with basic patterns seen in biology:

  1. Pattern-of-one:
    • Observation of Sun, Earth, Moon viewed as separate entities.
    • Life began as single cells...
    • Numerical religious variant using the word "Monotheism" or some other Monism, singularity...
  2. Pattern-of-two:
    • Observation of Night/Day, Hot/Cold, Wet/Dry; (flip-flop of Earth's geomagnetic field)
    • Males/Females, Mouth/Anus, etc...
    • Numerical religious variant using the word "Ditheism" or some other dualism...
  3. Pattern-of-three:
    • Observation of Solar events: Dawn- Noon- Dusk, (solar worship in ancient Egypt with 3 seasons)...
    • Triplet DNA/RNA code, Three Germ layer development
    • Numerical religious variant using the word "Tritheism" or some other Triadism, Trinity, triune...
  4. More than three— sometimes more than one or more than two, but typically more than three (which may be designated by three dots to indicate plurality, poly, many, etc..., such as we see occurring in a mathematical statement):
    • Observation of stars
    • Multiple life forms
    • Numerical religious variant using the word "Polytheism" or some other many, plenty, heap...

The foregoing examples are meant to describe simple ideas because it is not Nature which likes complexity to make it think or feel that it is intelligent, it is human ego that does. This thing called Ego makes humans want to assert, (at times with humility) that it is important and purposeful. Describing Nature as (deliberately) creating complexities as a type of puzzle for humanity is like the ancient custom of thinking one or more gods is testing a person. If Nature is humanity's nearest god-like creature, this doesn't mean it needs to engage in a human trait of engaging in a test of strength, wisdom, and intelligence with humans. That's just plain silliness.

The rote teaching lessons of the Sun, Earth, Moon are basic patterns which can be combined to create complex patterns, but they don't teach them. They are like three Witches, or three Wiccans, or three Pagans who mix together simple ingredients into a cauldron out of which a more complex broth or soup can emerge, but doesn't always have to produce. Just because a person places a bowl on a table into which different fruits are gathered doesn't mean the ensemble is automatically a complexity, no matter if a particular observer thinks it does and finds such a mixture a desirable complex. No new fruit has been created, on the perception of the ensemble placed into a singular arrangement. It is an arrangement signifying much of human creativity that is bought, sold, traded, stolen and mimicked many times over and labeled as an expression of human intelligence! We see this in every industry, every ideology, again and again and again the same silliness occurs... where the simple is assembled then labeled a complexity and then defined as intelligence... because of language and associated symbology.

It also is silliness for people to continue worshipping the Moon and Earth as if they were representative female figures aligned with some purposeful fertility without taking into account that such figures, just like real women, have shelf lives... an expiration date, along with an incremental process of deterioration that dissipates energy and alters the routine patterns accordingly. A decrease in Natural energy needs to be boosted artificially, just as million of people drink coffee, take vitamins, exercise, diet, consume energy drinks, take vacations, change jobs, alter sleep patterns, etc... Those who are worshiping the Earth and Moon as goddesses linked to some idea of fertility or even simply Motherhood; and even though some recognize a three-stages of life sequel labeled Virgin- Mother- Crone; must take steps to amplify the energy while they also come to the conclusion that artificial efforts to enhance the power of Nature (such as by rituals, ceremonies, crystals, potions, sacrifices, etc...) are diminishing in their efficaciousness just like medications being given to old people, people with severe illnesses and injuries, and due to general changes in body chemistry which make some attempted remedies and energy boosting or mental clearing, an impossible task.

The change in the basic patterns of how the Sun, Earth and Moon are interacting, due to aging, is very much part of the equation that must be taken into account for the use of a given philosophy involving the triplex.

I must confess that the present story has been put together as a hit and miss proposition that was being used as a distraction while pondering some other issues and interests I have been contemplating for awhile. If The format seems discontinuous at moments and too divergent from the main story line, it's because I initially started out with the idea of creating a time line which focused primarily on the need for including the changes in the rotation rate of the Earth as a variable that is not being considered by other producers of biological time-lines. However, other correlations came to mind, including the impromptu occurrence of related perspectives involving some already constructed pages on phenomenology and transcendentalism, both of which may seem rather unrelated, but information being used in that context does, at least in some way, have a relationship to the present excursion. As such, if your are asked to have a logical discussion about the illogical or a realistic conversation about the imaginary, or a rational consideration about the irrational or a sane view of insanity, etc., such topics presented in this dichotomous fashion would be more readily understood by the average reader; but would not be so clear if some oppositional theme was not forthcoming by the author who wrote in such a fashion nonetheless.

Yet, if you encounter the fanciful in the midst of what appears to be a serious discussion about a scientific fact, you might readily be dismissive of the entire project of consideration. For whatever reason, you mind is amenable to making diversions and digressions between and among multiple objects if the only evidence for doing so appears to be flimsy and is otherwise already accepted by you as unrealistic and not worthy of your time. Nonetheless, for those who are a bit more flexible in their thinking, you might find the present journey of interest and value.

In pursing the present idea of a time-line involving the Earth in relation to the Sun and Moon, one may find themselves encountering various references as to how ancient peoples viewed the quantitative value "three," either separately or as a trio. Indeed, a common theme one might encounter (through some review of history about these three objects) is the act of worshipping them by ancient peoples that we of today reference as:

  • Solar worship (was very often a male figure, but female variations did occur);

Although sun worship has been used frequently as a term for "pagan" religion, it is, in fact, relatively rare. Though almost every culture uses solar motifs, only a relatively few cultures (Egyptian, Indo-European, and Meso-American) developed solar religions. All of these groups had in common a well-developed urban civilization with a strong ideology of sacred kingship. In all of them the imagery of the sun as the ruler of both the upper and the lower worlds that he majestically visits on his daily round is prominent... ...The sun god occupied a central position in both Sumerian and Akkadian religion, but neither the Sumerian Utu nor the Semitic Shamash was included among the three highest gods of the pantheon. The sun was one of the most popular deities, however, among the Indo-European peoples and was a symbol of divine power to them... ...During the later periods of Roman history, sun worship gained in importance and ultimately led to what has been called a "solar monotheism." Nearly all the gods of the period were possessed of solar qualities, and both Christ and Mithra acquired the traits of solar deities. The feast of Sol Invictus (Unconquered Sun) on December 25 was celebrated with great joy, and eventually this date was taken over by the Christians as Christmas, the birthday of Christ...

The most famous type of solar cult is the Sun Dance of the Plains Indians of North America. In the pre-Columbian civilizations of Mexico and Peru, sun worship was a prominent feature. In Aztec religion extensive human sacrifice was demanded by the sun gods Huitzilopochtli and Tezcatlipoca. In both Mexican and Peruvian ancient religion, the Sun occupied an important place in myth and ritual. The ruler in Peru was an incarnation of the sun god, Inti. In Japan the sun goddess, Amaterasu, who played an important role in ancient mythology and was considered to be the supreme ruler of the world, was the tutelary deity of the imperial clan, and to this day the sun symbols represent the Japanese state. ("sun worship." Encyclopædia Britannica, 2013.)

...One of the best-known festivals of ancient Rome was the Saturnalia, a winter festival celebrated on December 17–24. Because it was a time of wild merrymaking and domestic celebrations, businesses, schools, and law courts were closed so that the public could feast, dance, gamble, and generally enjoy itself to the fullest. December 25—the birthday of Mithra, the Iranian god of light, and a day devoted to the invincible sun, as well as the day after the Saturnalia—was adopted by the church as Christmas, the nativity of Christ, to counteract the effects of these festivals.

Feasts and festivals, whether religious or secular, national or local, serve to meet specific social and psychological needs and provide cohesiveness to social institutions: e.g., church, state, and esoteric or socially non-accepted groups. The cohesiveness engendered in the feasts and festivals of minority groups (e.g., Christians in the early Roman Empire) often provides these groups with the strength to influence the institutions of the society and the culture of the majority. When a particular religion triumphs over other religions, it often incorporates elements from the feasts and festivals of the previously predominant religions into its own religious calendar. This has been an important practice of all the world religions in their attempts to bring about social solidarity, order, and tranquility. Similarly, individuals can gain a sense of psychological cohesiveness through participation in feasts and festivals. ("feast." Encyclopædia Britannica, 2013.)

Saturn's great festival, the Saturnalia, became the most popular of Roman festivals, and its influence is still felt in the celebration of Christmas and the Western world's New Year. The Saturnalia was originally celebrated on December 17, but it was later extended to seven days. It was the merriest festival of the year: all work and business were suspended; slaves were given temporary freedom to say and to do what they liked; certain moral restrictions were eased; and presents were freely exchanged. The weekday Saturday (Latin Saturni dies) was named for Saturn. ("Saturn." Encyclopædia Britannica. 2013)

The survival of Roman religion

For a time, coins and other monuments continued to link Christian doctrines with the worship of the Sun, to which Constantine had been addicted previously. But even when this phase came to an end, Roman paganism continued to exert other, permanent influences, great and small. The emperors passed on to the popes the title of chief priest, pontifex maximus. The saints, with their distribution of functions, often seemed to perpetuate the many numina (spirits) of ancient tradition. The ecclesiastical calendar retains numerous remnants of pre-Christian festivals—notably Christmas, which blends elements including both the feast of the Saturnalia and the birthday of Mithra. But, most of all, the mainstream of Western Christianity owed ancient Rome the firm discipline that gave it stability and shape, combining insistence on established forms with the possibility of recognizing that novelties need not be excluded, since they were implicit from the start. ("Roman religion." Encyclopædia Britannica, 2013)

  • Lunar (or Moon) ship, now typically seen as a female, but in the past had originated as a male in ancient Egypt and in hunter/gatherer tribes.

...The moon is viewed in terms of the rhythmic life of the cosmos and is believed to govern all vital change. The cyclical process of disappearance and appearance of the moon is the basis of the widespread association of the moon with the land of the dead, the place to which souls ascend after death, and the power of rebirth. The lunar governance of this cycle likewise leads to association of the moon and fate. The mythology of the moon emphasizes especially those periods when it disappears—the three days of darkness in the lunar cycle and eclipses. Both are usually interpreted as the result of battles between some monster who devours or slays the moon and who subsequently regurgitates or revives it. The interregnum is interpreted as an evil period necessitating strict taboos against beginning any new or creative period (e.g., planting or sexual intercourse). In some areas loud noises are part of a ritual activity designed to scare off the moon's assailant.

Lunar deities, gods and goddesses who personify the moon and its cycles, are comparatively rare. In primitive hunting cultures the moon is frequently regarded as male and, particularly in regard to women, is understood as a preeminently evil or dangerous figure. In agricultural traditions the moon is usually regarded as female and is the benevolent ruler of the cyclical vegetative process. ("moon worship." Encyclopædia Britannica, 2013.)

  • Earth worship (typically described as a Mother Earth); but often labeled "Gaia"... even though this figure was a mythological breeder of giants and monsters... and represents a hypocritical mindset when the idea of Earth as a nurturing mother is the sole or primary definition being associated thereto.
