Hic sapientia est. Qui habet intellectum computet numerum bestiae: numerus enim hominis est, et numerus eius est sescenti sexaginta sex.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred sixty and six.*


Some simple mathematics associated with 666, the Number of the Beast.

Note: S(x1,xn) = the sum of digits 1 to n of x. For example, p = 3.14159265..., S(p1,p4) = 3+1+4+1 = 9.

666 = 2.6591... x 1036,305. It is 36,306 digits long: 3+6+3+0+6 = 18 = 6+6+6. The sum of all its digits is 162,828: (1x6) = 6; (2x8 = 16; 1x6) = 6; (2x8 = 16; 1x6) = 6. Its first 150 digits are 666 = 666 = 6666631 (5 digits) = 666666666615 (10 digits) = 66666666666666666666666666666665 (31 digits) = 666666666666666666666666666666666666666666663 (44 digits) = 6666666666666666666666666666666666666
    66666666666666666666666666666666666662 (74 digits) = A magic polygram with 166 vertices has 166 lines, each summing to the magic total of 666:
