  • "Take the number 666, which in good and bad conditions denotes either a perfect man or a perfect devil. Divide love in man into 666 parts; give God 600, your neighbor 60 and you 6! But if you want to be a perfect devil, then give God six, sixty to your neighbor, and six hundred to yourself!"

    Although im not religious i find this quite interesting especially the second part it's almost like describing ruling class and not only.

  • 666 comes from ancient religions as a combination of astrology, numerology, and alchemy. It relates to a 6x6 magic square of number 1-36 where the sum of all numbers equals 666. The square was used for the purpose of divination. It is more popularly known through its reference in Christianity as the number of the beast found in the Book of Revelations in the New Testament. In modern times it is often used by those who have never bothered to study ancient history and have no idea of its origins or original meaning.
