via Universal Truth Enlightenment and Realization ------- Where we have been taught that a number depicts a quantity or an amount, Pythagoras taught it to be a living qualitative reality. Much of the Egyptian philosophy and religion that he studied for 22 years was built almost completely on the Science of Numbers. In fact, all of nature was explained entirely by this principle. For example, a rubber ball and the moon have identical mathematical properties, both being circular. Yet they are physically very different. Nature was composed of groups of four such as the four geometrical elements—point, line, surface, and solid, and four material elements—Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. Nature also supplied the clue to the law of contrasts: if there be light, then there is darkness; if cold, then heat; if height, then also depth; if solid, then fluid; hardness and softness; calm and tempest; prosperity and adversity; life and death. This proved the twofold activity of the one principle, the difference being only the degree of vibration—and vibration can be measured.
