Numbers identify us and give us a unique station in the society.

## Repeating Vedic Function of Multiples of Eight

Numbers are a profound part of our lives. They govern everything we do. They tell us when to get up. What time to go to work? What day it is. They tell us how much we weigh. How tall we are. How old we are. They tell us whether we are qualified for a loan. They tell us how much we should eat and how much money we make. They tell us how fast we can drive and how far we can go on a tank of gas.

Numbers tell us who wins our elections and who wins a sporting event. How many states are in the American Union? How many children we do or don’t have. They tell us how well we perform and at what age we can legally consume alcohol. Such trivial things we so often take for granted.

They let us know how tall we are and what is our clothing size. They tell us are hat size; our ring size and our shoe size. How much we weight and how much we can lift.

They tell us our birth date and our anniversary dates. Numbers identify us and give us a unique station in the society. They give us a sense of security and mark the location of our homes, schools and businesses.

Numbers control the length of time we have to accomplish a given task and ultimately the length of stay we have here on the planet. Numbers tell us how healthy we are and the rate at which are hearts beat and they give us the scale by which we can monitor our many vital signs.

It is a wonder why we do not think of them more as governing the social sciences but mainly think of them with respect to the physical sciences. Numbers play a dominant role in our dream cycles and in individual moments or revelation and luck.

So imagine how pleased I was with an inspiration. The notion and its imagery as it popped into my head, a particular trend regarding the repeating Vedic ascending and descending function of multiples of eight.

I am not saying what I am about to share no one else has ever thought of before. I am almost certain that is not the case. What I am saying is that independent of examining anyone else’s work or without any previous knowledge of the existence of this trend I was given the gift of discovery. Not unlike perhaps when Columbus discover America.

Everyone knows people from across the oceans had been to the American continent before. Of course people were already living here when Columbus arrived but be that as it may it did not make Columbus’s discovery any less significant in the eyes of many.

So having said that let me tell you about the repeating Vedic ascending and descending function of multiples of eight. First we have to acknowledge one axiom that the number nine equals zero, (see the article, The Vedic Eight published by this author on Factoidz).

For those who do not understand the Vedic number system here is a quick review. The Vedic system says that all numbers can be reduced to single digits like 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. This is done by adding the individual digits of any given number and constantly reducing it until you have a single digit. For example, take the number 2,402. This number equals eight because 2+4+0+2 = 8.

Let’s say you wanted to multiply a number then take the answer of the multiplication and reduce it to the Vedic equivalent. Start with something easy first; 1 x 8 = 8 or another example; 2 x 8 = 16 which is 1+6=7. To make sure we got it let’s take a larger number; 19 x 8 = 152 which is 1+5+2=8.

Now let’s apply this to our discovery “The Repetitive Vedic Countdown Cycle and Multiples of Eight”. The below table highlights the repetitive trend:

## A Vedic Countdown Cycle and Multiples of Eight

In the above table the first column is a multiple of eight. The first row, first column, that cell is 0 x 8 = 0. The second row first column is 1 x 8 = 8. The next is 2 x 8 = 16. The bottom row first column is 8 x 8 = 64; followed by 6+4 = 10; which is equal to one.

In the fourth column the count picks up again with 9 x 8 = 72, which equals 9; which in turn in the Vedic counting system 9 is equal to zero.

Following to the thirteenth column bottom row we have 44 x 8 = 352; which is equal to 10; which in turn is equal to 1.

Practically speaking I did not have the opportunity to calculate every possibility but I am assuming the trend is infinite. I will leave it up to the reader to find an instance where this is not the case. For the purpose of a mini proof I took a random sample of nine possibilities to demonstrate the validity. To help you in your search always start your cycle at a multiple of nine and end your cycle right before the next multiple of nine.

So for a random selection we chose the cycle starting with 117 x 8 which equals 936. This cycle ends at 125 x 8 which equals 1000. Below is the table demonstrating our random selection.

## Significance of the Number Eight - A Random Sampling

As you can see our random selection still follows the same trend. The question you may ask yourself might be similar to what I asked, which is. Since numbers govern our lives what is the significance of this trend and how can we find a useful application.

Well I am not an applied mathematician and such a trend may already have a practical function. One perhaps area might be in computer programming. From a layman’s perspective since on the one hand the cycle continuously increases by counting numbers time the number eight but continuously cycles back to the Vedic numbers zero through eight. One application could be this is some type of universal clock.

I am only speculating but another potential application could be an eight hour/day or nine hour/day calendar week. In any event I found the discovery very interesting but would very much like to know what kind of application it could be used for.
