**The
figure nine (9) is zygospirally related to the figure six (6, see
six), and quasisymmetric with the sign for Pluto. **

**The
figure ‘9' designates the number nine, the fifth odd number (with
odditude of three), and the fourth non-prime (with prime factors 3
x 3). **

**Nines
are produced by unit subtractions (n -1) from pure decimal magnitudes
(a numerical practice most frequently encountered in a retail context,
e.g. $9.99). In order to produce arithmetical consistency in respect
to 1/3 x 3, one is mathematically equated with point nine recurring
(0.999...). This equation - which provides a virtual infinite decimal-expansion
for every number - is indispensable for Cantorean diagonalization.

**The
number nine has a null value in digital reduction, practically enabling
all nines to be eliminated from any complex reduction (involving at
least one digit other than nine or zero). The same formula (9 = 0)
is also derivable from Barker twinning (or Zygonovism) - long familiar
to Dogon sorcery - for which nine functions as the summative key.
Such zygonovism (or nine-sum coupling) divides the decimal numerals
into five twins, and underlies both Numogram syzygetics and the game
of Subdecadence. **

**
The number nine is the last numeral of the decimal system, and its
associations with death and fatality are primarily based on this purely
numerical (modular) function of termination. There are nine rivers
of the underworld, and the mortuary aspect of the cat is indicated
by her nine lives. Charles Manson's adoption of the Beatle's Revolution-9
(or Revelation IX) as an apocalyptic ‘family anthem' was fully in
keeping with this aspect of the number. **

**Alternatively,
nine is acknowledged as the highest numeral, and associated with celestial
inspiration (the nine muses) and bliss (Cloud-9). Nine solar planets
are recognized by modern astronomy (as also by the ancient Lemurian
Planetwork). **

**The
duplicate reiteration of nine is remarkable for it's theomystical
resonances. Islam (= 99) lists ninety nine ‘incomparable attributes'
of Allah. The Anglossic value of YHVH = 99. According to the cryptic
Black Atlantean cargo-cult Hyper-C the number ninety-nine - as dramatized
by the Y2K panic - designates the cyclic completion of time. **
