Cosmic Number 137

Don’t panic.

This equation is not here for you to memorize or use to make any ICHIWAH Manifestation calculations. Its purpose is to provide another piece of scientific evidence. Evidence your conscious mind can use as it makes its argument to your subconscious mind that there is a plausible scientific basis for the functionality of your ICHIWAH Manifestation device.

The Fine Structure Constant Equation

In the above equation:

  • α (alpha) is the name used to designate the Fine Structure Constant
  • e is the charge of an electron (electromagnetism)
  • h is Planck’s constant (quantum mechanics)
  • c is the speed of light (relativity)

When these three constants of nature are combined in this equation it just happens that all of their units of measure cancel out.

The solution to this equation is simply the number 137.

What is the Fine Structure Constant?

The Fine Structure Constant is a number that has been described as being at the very root of the universe. It represents the strength of the electromagnetic forces controlling how electrically charged particles, such as electrons, interact. There were/are hopes that this number will turn out to be instrumental in a grand unifying theory of physics.

First calculated in 1916 by the German physicist Arnold Sommerfeld as a decimal value used in an equation describing the fine structure of experimentally observed spectral lines. Spectral lines represent the shift in energy as an electron jumps from one orbit to another.

In 1929, the English astrophysicist Arthur Eddington converted Sommerfeld’s decimal to the fraction 1/137 and noted this was a ratio of two prime numbers. Having a ‘mystical/ background, Eddington speculated that this number, mathematically derived, could possibly function as a link between science and spirit.

For convenience the 1/137 fraction took on the form of just the number 137; which can be seen written on many physicists walls.

In 1935 physicist Max Born, Nobel Prize winner and one of the contributing founders of quantum physics, wrote a paper The Mysterious Number 137 listing reasons why this number may be attractive to scientists. The primary reason being the possibility that it held the secret that would combine the world of large body physics and relativity with the quantum (subatomic) world.

Richard Feynman, another Nobel Prize winning physicist, wrote in 1985, “Nobody knows where this number [137] comes from. It is one of the greatest damn mysteries of physics: a magic number that comes to us with no understanding by man.”

Some other phenomena that make 137 fascinating:

  • it can be written in terms of pi
  • it can be connected to the Golden Ratio through Lucas Numbers (2, 1, 3, 4, 7, …) and Fibonacci Numbers (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, …)
  • Jewish mysticism – classical Hebrew uses letters as numbers. ‘Kabbalah’ is the word for Jewish mysticism. Spelled with Hebrew letters, and using those letters as numbers, the word totals to 137
