# Thread: "Line numbers" finding a number for any symbol

1. ## "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.

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

3. Finding a system is easy . . .

It gets difficult with larger numbers . . .

4. Well I've been working on the website:

The LineNum Source

5. This video I'm using happened to have a guy with a plain triangle symbol on his arm.... what are the odds!?

6. 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...

8. I've significantly revised the website The LineNum Source with a set of Christian LineNum symbols:

9. People might be surprised to learn that I am an extremely liberal Christian yet I think Jewish mysticism is complete nonsense.

Well their beliefs about Satan are interesting

but I see no truth in their Tree of Life symbol.

See my https://linenum.com site.

10. Recently I watched the new Ghostbusters movie and in the credits it showed words on skyscrapers - including "X O" (kiss and hug). Then I realised that Circle and Cross is Hugs and Kisses - also Noughts and Crosses...

Then at the start of the original Ghostbusters movie I saw the Zener cards:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zener_cards
They are:
yellow circle: 1 line
red cross/plus: 2 lines
blue wavy lines: 3 lines
black square: 4 lines
and a green star: 10 lines..... unless it is a non-open star.... then it would have 5 lines.
Note that I didn't rearrange any of those sequences including noughts/crosses, hugs/kisses, and the 5 shapes in Zener cards...
Also I was thinking that the ghostbusters symbol involved a red 2 line element (the circle and line) and a white "spirit" energy part (the ghost) Yes that is a bit of a stretch but thought it was interesting.
