Yes, two famous numbers are really the same. We have uncovered a stunning numerological proof, and ye shall be the first to know.
Firstly, 666 = 6 * 111 (six multiplied by one hundred eleven). Yes. And 111 in binary is 7: 4 + 2 + 1. Are you still with us?
Therefore, 666 ≍ 6 * 7 ≍ 42. Q.E.D.
Yes, the biblical Number of the Beast is equivalent to the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything, from Douglas Adams Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
And if that isn’t enough to satisfy your pattern-hungry brain, consider that the third moment of the Riemann zeta function, that links geometry to the order (or disorder) of the prime numbers, is quite likely 42, and that the zeta function appears to rule in the quantum world of subatomic particles—so much so that physicists may be the ones to solve Riemann’s Hypothesis that within the geometry of the zeta function all prime numbers are gathered upon an infinite line.
