    "Line numbers" finding a number for any symbol

    edit: the title is incorrect - it is only about line-based 2D graphical symbols...

    Hi I was wondering if anyone has heard of this before.... (not from me)

    I think just about any line-based 2D graphical symbol can have the "line number" determined...

    e.g.


    The following symbols involve the following numbers based on how many lines are involved:

    3, 4, 2, 1...

    Perhaps a 0 could be represented using a dot (0 lines) - the problem with that is that any number of dots would still be a 0.

    The infinity symbol is a 1, a cross is a 2 (duality) but I'm not sure about the yin-yang symbol (depends if the inner "S" is joined to the outer circle). The pentagram is 5 and David's star is 6. On a related note, I was told that a 5 pointed star is a feminine star while the 6 pointed star is masculine.



    This "heartagram" is a 3.

    I plan on eventually making a website about this.

    Here the "line numbers" are used to represent numbers:

    Finding a system is easy . . .



    It gets difficult with larger numbers . . .

    Here is the tragedy of theology, in its distilled essence:
    The employment of high-powered human intellect,
    of genius, of profoundly rigorous logical deduction —
    studying nothing.

    In addition to the Circle, Cross, Triangle, Square, Star (1 2 3 4 5 lines) I've made the "5 line number energies":



    I think they're way better that the 4 elements...

    Well it looks like Arabic-Indic numerals originally had a dot for zero:



    Also the Arabic-Indic 1, 2, 3 have 1, 2 and 3 lines...
