"It is better to know some of the questions than all of the answers."
It's Good to Know: About the Number Nine
Today being the ninth day of the month, I thought I'd tell you something interesting about the number nine
that you might not know:
If you multiply any number by nine, the resulting digits add up to nine. For example, 4 x 9 = 36; 3 + 6 = 9.
It ALWAYS works. Try it.
Word to the Wise: Ennead
As long as we're talking about the number nine . . .
An "ennead" (EH-nee-ad) is a group of nine things --any nine things. Notable examples include the nine
principal gods of ancient Egypt (the "Great Ennead of Heliopolis") and the title given to six sets of nine
treatises by the third-century philosopher Plotinus.
