Arithmetic Relating to the Number 432
In his many years of mythological studieds Joseph Campbell continually came across the number 432 in various catagories and forms {432,000, etc.}. This number was seen in different cultures throughout history, the only relationship being an innate commonality within the mind. Campbell explained this phenomenon as a 'collective' archetype, an inherent aspect within the human psyche, as well as nature as a whole. The following is a composition of various aspects and forms the number 432 takes, and the effects it has in our everyday lives.
The Secret Of Nine
Some interesting arithmetic related to the number 432:
4+3+2=9
9x9=81
1/81 = 12345678
8/81= 98765432
98765432 x 9 = 888888888
12345678 x 9 = 111111111
432x432=186624 (close to the accepted universal constant speed of light)
186624 /9 /9 /9 /9 /9 = 3.16 (similar to the value of pi)
In the socalled "magic number" sequence of the periodic table of elements 
2,8,20,28,50,82,126 = sum = 316 (see immediately above).
12 x 360 = 4320 (link between the number 12 and 432, degrees in a circle, etc.)
The numbers one to 9, arranged in sequence in groups of three:
1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
The middle vertical, horizontal, and both diagonal rows add to 15. The perimeters add
to 6, 12, 18, and 24 respectively.
Comment  All is number.
Axiomatic Formulae and Conversions
Circle Area = Pi x Radius x Radius
Circle Circumference = Pi x Diameter
Circle Diameter = Circumference / Pi
Circumference = 360 degrees = 21600 minutes of arc = 1296000 seconds of arc
Circumference of the Earth = (21600 x 6080)/5280 = 24872 E.M. = 21600 N.M.
E.M. = English Mile = 5280 feet
Mile (English/US/E.M.) = 5280 feet = .86842 N.M.
Nautical Mile (N.M.) = 6080 feet = 1 degree of arc = 1.1515 E.M.
N.M. = Nautical Mile = 6080 feet
Pi = 3.1416 = Circumference / Diameter
Pyramid = Pyramids are classified according to the shape of the polygon at the
base. Unless otherwise indicated, any pyramid referenced here is a regular quadrangular
pyramid (like those at Giza), with a base in the form of a square and with four triangular
sides each meeting at a single point (the apex). Each of the sides is a triangle, sometimes
called a "face". "Height" is the distance from center of the base to apex; "slant height" is
the distance from the center of a side at the base to the apex.

Buckminster Fuller's Tetrahedron and 216
The tetrahedron is the simplest Platonic solid. A regular tetrahedron is the threedimensional polyhedron formed by four equidistant points in space; or the figure formed by joining the center points of four concentric spheres of equal volume. It has four faces, each of which is an equilateral triangle.
This figure is central to the visionary work of R. Buckminster Fuller. Much more than the inventor of the geodesic dome, his profound ideas are fundamental to an understanding of how the cosmos is built, and why it's built the way it is.
The formula for calculating the height or length of the sides of an equilateral tetrahedron
is h(height)=(sqrt(6)/3)*s(length of side). For a tetrahedron of height 12, the length of the sides is 14.6969385, which is the square root of 216.
Synergetics
Comment There are perhaps many other numerical "coincidences" linking Synergetics with the number 432.
Diameters of the Sun and Moon
The diameter of the sun is 864,000 miles (2 x 432). The diameter of the moon is 2160
miles (432 / 2).
Comment  If these measurements were not as they are, we would
not experience a total eclipse of the sun. These ratios and numbers, combined with the cycle of the Precession of the Equinoxes of the Earth at 25,920 years (60x432), form an astounding coincidence, at the very least. Despite popular opinion that there may be billions and billions of worlds in the Universe, the odds are billions and billions to one that any such ratios prevail anywhere else.
Di Herculis Blue Binary Precession Anomaly
"DI Herculis is an 8thmagnitude eclipsing binary about 2,000 light years
from earth. These two young blue stars are very closeonly one fifth
the distance from earth to our sun. They orbit about a common center of
gravity every 10.55 days. The puzzle is that, as the two stars swing around
one another, the axis of their orbit rotates or precesses too slowly. General relativity
predicts a precession of 4.27吏�/century, but for DI Herculis the rate is
only 1.05吏�/century.
Accentuating the challenge to general relativity is the discovery that a
second eclipsing binary, AC Camelopardalis, also violates general
relativity in the same way. It seems that wherever gravitational fields
are extremely strong and spacetime, therefore, highly distorted,
general relativity fails."
The elliptical threebody problem (a close binary and a nearby
companion, threedimensional case) has been examined to explain the nature
of anomalies in apsidal motion of some close binary systems.
Significant discrepancy between the observed and
theoretical apsidal motion of DI Herculis possibly results from binary
orbit perturbations due to the presence of a third body.
Di Herculis
Comment  One verified exception is sufficient to disprove a supposedly
universally applicable theorem.
Egyptian Pyramid Inch
Use of the pyramid inch is attributed to Sir Isaac Newton,
who discovered that many of the measurements of the pyramid would be in
whole numbers if this unit were used. The pyramid inch and sacred cubit are also
found as raised images on a red granite plaque at the entrance to the Antechamber
of the King's room of the Great Pyramid. The English inch was originally the same as
the pyramid inch during the reign of Queen Elizabeth.
Pyramid inches are .0011 longer than our inch, and the sacred
cubit is 25 pyramid inches. The pyramid inch = 1.0011 present inches.
Hunkler
Comment  The correspondence between the ancient Egyptian inch and the
English foot explains why measurements in feet, rather than some other unit
such as meters, reveal the cosmic geometry symbolized by the number 432. Egyptian
measurement units were clearly based on a deep understanding of astronomy, geophysics,
and mathematical relationships. There are numerous examples supporting this view. See,
for example, Height Ratio of the Great Pyramid.
Heart Beat
A healthy, athletic adult at rest has a heart rate of 60 beats to the
minute. 60 X 60 minutes X 24 hours = 86,400 beats per day.
Comment  This may be one of the reasons why the number 60 is so
common in metrology. It also gives humans a special relationship to the cosmos,
in the sense that it links a fundamental physiological property of the human species
to the cosmic geometry symbolized by the number 432.
Height Ratio of the Great Pyramid
The height and perimeter of the Great Pyramid are in a ratio of 43,200 to
the radius and circumference of the Earth. Take the original height of the pyramid
(481.3949 feet) and multiply it by 43,200, the quotient is 3938.685 miles. The
modern measurement for the actual polar radius of the Earth (pole to center) is
3949 miles. Also, if you take the perimeter of the pyramid at its base
(3023.16 feet) and multiply this number by 43,200 you get 24,734.94, within
170 miles of the equatorial circumference of the Earth (24,902 miles). The error
is less than one percent. Furthermore, the length of the base of the Pyramid of
Cheops is exactly the distance the Earth rotates at the equator in one halfsecond of time.
Comment  Civilized Egyptians were considering the nature of the cosmos for
going on 5,000 years before the pyramid was built. Our own technical
civilization started around the period of the Industrial Revolution, 150 to 200 years
ago; and is not focused, by and large, on inquiries into cosmic geometry. The
Great Pyramid was clearly designed to embody ages of knowledge of
cosmic and mathematical proportion in a single sacred structure that would last
for all time. A key number embodied in this structure is 432.
Latitude of Stonehenge
Stonehenge is located at 51 degrees, 10 minutes, 42.35294118
seconds North latitude, and 51 x 10 x 42.3529 = 21,600, i.e. (432 / 2).
Comment  This is either an extraordinary coincidence; or the originators of
Stonehenge knew a lot more about astronomy, geophysics, and geometry than
they've been given credit for.
It was the Greek astronomer Hipparchos (ca. 190  125 B.C.)
who is credited with covering the sphere of the earth with meridians and parallels.
Following the Babylonian method of dividing circles and angles according to the
sexagesimal system he created a grid of 360 lines running from the North
to the South Pole and 180 lines running parallel to the equator. All this was done,
however, thousands of years after the building of Stonehenge.
Precession of the Equinoxes
The Earth's axis is inclined at 23.5 degrees to the plane of its elliptical orbit
around the sun. As the Earth rotates it experiences precession, like the wobbling
of a top. This wobble causes the direction of the north celestial pole
to change in a circular path over time. This motion is called precession of
the equinoxes and occurs in a full cycle every 25,920 years (60 x 432).
Comment  In 14,000 A.D. Vega, not Polaris, will be the "North Star".
Qi of Qigong
Influence of The External Qi of Qigong on The Radioactive Decay Rate of 241Am
"The decay rate of a radioactive source is usually extremely stable and
cannot be altered even by such physical or chemical processes as high
temperature, high pressure, high electromagnetic field, strong acid, or
strong base. However our qigong experiments showed that the count rate
of 241Am radioactive decay significantly changed while the radioactive
241Am source was being treated by the external qi of qigong emitted by
Yan Xin. The amplitude of the change was, on average, about 1 % of the
total count rate, but in one instance it reached a maximum of 10 %. The
qigong experiments were conducted at ambient temperature and pressure,
and the external qi was emitted from a distance of 100 meters to 1900
kilometers. Since no known physical or chemical processes existed in our
experiments, except the effect of external qi emitted from long
distances, that could cause a change in the decay rate of a radioactive
source, we can only attribute the significant changes in the 241Am decay
count rate to the effect of Yan Xin's remote qi treatment."
"The 241Am source was an electroplated standard source produced by the
Institute of Atomic Energy, Academia Sinica in 1981, with a radioactive
intensity of216 uC and an effective diameter of about 2 mm. The source
was packed in a source box (25 x 5 cubic m) made of Plexiglas."
"From the third to sixth round of experiments, there were a total of 32
emissions for the four rounds. The emissions were carried out while Yan
Xin was conducting qi emitting lectures in the cities of Shenzhen,
Guangzhou, Chengdu, and Kunming. The time for each qi emission was
scheduled by telephone in advance."
Comment  'Qi' is a Chinese character meaning, literally air, and represents the flowing energy that exists in everything and permeates the universe. "Gong" is another Chinese character signifying the method or practice of understanding or utilizing this energy. Dr. Yan Xin, a Chinese Qi master, has conducted several scientific experiments to verify the effect of Qigong practice on physical processes, including supposedly stable radioactive decay rates (see above). The "emissions" of Qi by Dr. Yan Xin, often from a distance, are apparently correlated with measurable changes to physical processes. Our immediate interest here is on a significant point not obvious in the above referenced articles, namely, that the "emissions" are evidently conducted in sets or rounds, "..32 emissions for the four rounds," etc. The practical practice of mind over matter may depend on an understanding of the Cosmic Key: 432.
Speed of Sound in Granite
The speed of sound through granite rock at room temperature (about 72 degrees)
is 12,960 feet per second.
Comment  Sound waves need some type of matter as a carrier. Their speed
is affected by the density and temperature of the substance through which they travel.
At higher temperatures the speed of sound increases. This particular measurement
(3 x 432), ties a primary property of stone to the cosmic geometry symbolized by
the number 432. Coupled with the known power of acoustics to modify the
physical properties of substances (see, for example acoustic fluidization), this
measurement suggests intriguing links between sound, stones, and the number 432.
This is of particular interest given the widespread legends and mystery concerning the
methods used to construct ancient cyclopean megaliths, in which the acoustic
levitation of stones by trumpets, lyres, whistles or songs is often asserted.
Square Root of the Speed of Light
Einstein's famous equation of energy and matter  E=mc2  leads to one of the
most profound instances of the occurrence of the number 432. In the equation, E=
energy, m = matter, and c = the universal constant speed of light. The speed of light
is generally accepted to be 186,291 miles per second in a vacuum. However, the
square of the number 432 is 186,624. If the universal constant speed of light were
in fact 186,624, then the number 432 would be the square root of the speed of
light. The deviation is small enough be be accounted for by several possibilities:
(1) Variation in our understanding of the length of the "mile", i.e. 5280 feet. See
Egyptian Inch, above.
(2) Known anomalies in the theory of general relativity. See Di Herculis.
The Egyptian sacred pyramid inch is .0011 inches longer than our inch.
186,291 (accepted speed of light) x 1.0011 = 186496 or 99.931429 percent
of 186,624. The speed of light, if calculated using the slightly longer
sacred pyramid inch, is extraordinarily close to the square of 432.
Comment  Presume for a moment that you do not know the speed of light, but
are aware of the equation E=mc2. An intuitive scientist who substituted the number 432 for
"c" in the equation would be very close, if not precise, in the determination of this
universal constant, that is, E=m(432)4. This illustrates the important concept of
"reverse engineering" to find unknown quantities and constants by use of the cosmic
number 432 and its multiples and divisors.
