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.
