on the number 47

"The first prime number beyond the trigonometric limit is 47. The number 47 may be a flying increment to fill allspace, to fill out the eight triangular facets of the non-allspace-filling vector equilibrium to form the allspace-filling first nuclear cube.

If 47 as a factor produces a Scheherazade Number with mirrors, it may account not only for all the specks of dust in the Universe but for all the changes of cosmic restlessness, accounting the convergent-divergent next event, which unbalances the even and rational whole numbers.

If 47 as a factor does not produce a
Scheherazade Number with mirrors, it may explain that there can be no
recurring limit symmetries. It may be that 47 is the cosmic random
element, the agent of infinite change."
