Number 9 Trivia

  • According to The Satanic Rituals by Dr. Anton Szandor LaVey, 9 represents the true number of Satan, as it signifies The Ego, which always returns to itself. {The Unknown Known, TSR.}

  • The dreaded 'Number of The Beast' 666 can be broken down to 9. Example:

  • According to numerologists, the number nine holds special rank. It is associated with forgiveness, compassion and success on the positive side as well as arrogance and self- righteousness on the negative.

  • Pythagoras, the Greek mathematician and father of the famous theorem, noted that nine in particular had many unique properties. For example, multiply nine by any two, three or four-digit number and the sums of those will also break down to nine. 9x62 = 558; 5+5+8=18; 1+8=9.

  • The Chinese associate the number nine with long life, due to how similar its pronunciation is to the local word for long-lasting. Historically, ancient Chinese emperors associated themselves closely with the number nine, which appeared prominently in architecture and royal dress, often in the form of nine fearsome dragons.

  • The imperial dynasties in China were so convinced of the power of the number nine that the palace complex at Beijing's Forbidden City is rumored to have been built with 9,999 rooms.

  • In Japanese, the word for nine is a homophone for the word for suffering, so the number is considered highly unlucky - second only to four, which sounds like death.

  • Many Japanese will go so far as to avoid room numbers including nine at hotels or hospitals, if the building planners haven't already eliminated them altogether.
